Re: What are you currently playing?

Final fight street wise Its Decent, not awful Escort missions are a bit annoying, especially when you fail thanks to the bloody NPC RUNNING TOWARDS SOMEONE WITH A GRENADE!! I actually sort of enjoyed this in a so-shit-it's-entertaining way. The bizarre comments that NPC's in the streets come out wi...

Re: The most disappointed you've ever been in a release

Yeah, I remember some of the challenges in Transformed really trying my patience because they demanded spot-on absolutely perfect runs. But when I finally managed to 100% the World Tour, it felt good :)

Re: The most disappointed you've ever been in a release

Team Sonic racing Lack of tracks, lack of characters, GP mode that has levels that require you to be perfect and confusing power-ups. It has none of the charm that Transformed had That's a shame. Transformed was a real surprise and became one of my favourite kart games. I'd completely forgotten abo...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Was sorting through which games to keep and get shot of and couldn't remember much about Anarchy Reigns (PS3) so I decided to play it again before I decided its fate. Game is shallow, repetitive and far too short but also great fun. It has that usual style over substance thing that (for me) defines ...

Re: Ebay is flooded with repros. Can anything be done?

I suppose it depends on whether you want originality or not. Then you return to that age-old collecting vs playing debate. There isn't a correct answer really, just personal opinions and preferences.

Re: 'random niceness' thread

Got Red Steel (Wii) and Koloomn (puzzle game for PSP) up for grabs if anybody wants them. Both complete.

As before, will just be charity-shopping them if there are no takers.

Re: Interest Check: Sega Saturn console

Does it have Shinobi or Golden the Duel with it? It didn't unfortunately. I sold the console on ebay in the end as there was no interest here and got nearly £60 for it. Seems like Saturns are no longer as cheap as they once were! Shinobi X and Golden Axe: The Duel were two games that I always wante...

Re: Ebay is flooded with repros. Can anything be done?

Like I said it can take time, the first thing ebay would likely do is open a dialogue with the seller. Not necessarily. I once had a legit copy of Super Mario World (cart-only) for SNES listed on ebay and somebody reported it as counterfeit. Ebay didn't contact me at all - just pulled my listing th...

Re: Is the forum in decline?

Perhaps the forum is in decline because the scope of discussion has been narrowed? Reduced scope for discussion = less discussion. Less discussion = fewer members. Less censorious forum alternatives = fewer members. Fewer members = less discussion. Seems logical to me. It may not be the only reason...

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

130 hours later, I'm finally done with Yakuza 0 . Finished up with about 96% completion but that was because I once again didn't bother with the gambling mini-games. Completed everything else that there was to do though. I think this is easily one of the best games in the series. It has a lot to do ...

Re: Gamecube - your favourite title and collecting

Geist is definitely not a great game but it was one of those development-hell titles anyway so it shouldn't be surprising. I would have to dig out the review I wrote of it years ago to remember all of the exact reasons why it was crap but I seem to remember the game having stupid AI, rubbish Resi-st...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Pre-ordered the Yakuza Remaster Collection on PS4...then realised that it won't be released until Feb 2020 lol Still, it looks like a sweet pack. The physical PS3 game case for Yakuza 5 is a nice touch and a nod to the fact that many were disappointed with the original Yakuza 5 being digital-only. S...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Picked up the Arcade Edition of Street Fighter V so have been trying to get back into it after leaving the original version alone for ages. Still leaving me bit cold to be honest and I don't know why. It plays great and the characters look sweet but I don't get the buzz that I do with the likes of A...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Also, unrelated to Capcom, I grabbed Yakuza 3, 4 and 5 on the PS4 as the games were surprise announced this week for English releases. 3 is out now, 4 and 5 are out in a few months time. Not played much of the new localisation of 3 yet, but what I've seen is way better than the PS3 version. Wow, di...

Re: Photo's of your retro collection.

Stopped doing the collecting thing and have sold off loads since the last bunch of photos I added to the thread. BUT...here is my UK Yakuza collection. This is easily one of my favourite series' of all-time so I made a point of buying the steelbook versions of 4 and the two Kiwamis. Only one I don't...
