Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

Finished off Spyro Reignited Trilogy today. All three games maxed with all the skill points. Bit too easy to blast through them after playing the PS1 originals over and over since they first came out but nevertheless, I really enjoyed the refresh on these and how faithful they were to the originals....

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

Its a nice edition for sure. One of the few times where a CE wasn't insanely priced and didn't feel like a cheap POS. Speaking of Yakuza, I've got my import copy of Judge Eyes. I started it last weekend and am already glued to it. A detective game based in Yakuza's universe was something I wanted f...

That reminds I saw PS Vita Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom for £15 are you still after that?
Ooh, yes - would definitely be interested :)

I'd given up finding it to be honest. Only have CEX's left around me and the Vita stock is always trash.

Re: What grinds your gears ?

Not sure about Fords from 2012 and thereabouts but I had a 2006 Mondeo and Fords of that period had a "Smart Charge" system that required a specific battery (think it had silver content or something...can't quite remember). Anyway, the previous owner had put the wrong battery in and it worked for me...

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

Picked up the 'After Hours' limited edition of Yakuza 6 from Amazon. They had it for £50-something (reduced) and I had a £20 voucher so it was around £35 in the end. Very pleased with that. Nice set which even comes with a pair of bar glasses. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/918dtKt...

Re: Buying CD's

Been a buying a few CD's again lately, used 90's stuff. Really is a fantastic time to be a buyer and add to your collection(s) due to the giveaway prices on anything other than the genuinely rare or collectable. Picked up an Apollo Four Forty album and the Mortal Kombat movie soundtrack for a couple...

Re: What grinds your gears ?

Bought used car 2 months ago (really happy with it). Come home from 3 weeks Christmas holidays to find it sitting dead in the garage. (Probably flat battery, but can I expect this to happen again if I fix that?) It can easily happen with the battery, especially if it was weak or not properly charge...

Re: 2018 Game Of The Year

Probably done less gaming than ever in 2018 and I REALLY can't remember everything that I've played but one new release that I have been enjoying immensely is the Spyro Reignited Trilogy. Surpassed all of my expectations for a remake and - a few almost insignificant niggles aside - it has done nothi...

Liking the look of that Kunio Kun collection...doubly so since I see there is a PS4 version as well.

Re: What are you currently playing?

Usually in FE games, the tank characters aren't as strong later on but the weaker characters become the uber strong tanks later on if you put the time into levelling them up. Titania was one of my favourite characters in the Gamecube game and she was a real tank at the start of that game too but la...

Violent Storm arcade class game. Fire Emblem Wii I had to restarted this on easy and my god it’s still hard If I remember rightly, they messed up the difficulty settings when bringing Fire Emblem from Japan to the West so Easy is actually Normal, Normal is actually Hard etc. You can transfer Path o...

Re: PlayStation 3 - Retro or not?

No. Dates and timelines for what is/isn't retro doesn't even factor into it. The games are basically the exact same as the current generation, just not as pretty. There's nothing different to look back on. Lots of games even exist on both PS3 and PS4 in up/downgraded form(s). You could level the sam...

Re: Panzer Dragoon remakes coming

A welcome surprise but yeah, I hope it isn't messed with too much. Orta was fantastic but I preferred the Saturn games so a visual refresh is all I'd ask for.

But surely everybody is like "Yur but what about PDS, mate?" I can't afford to buy a Saturn copy so get it ported or updated!

Re: What are you currently playing?

Returned to my Yakuza 5 save that I haven't played for over a year :shock: Still trying to get back into it. Got distracted by other games at the time which is a shame since I adore Yakuza. Got the newer games sitting unplayed on my shelf so I want to get Y5 out of the way at last...not that I want ...
