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

^^^ Going to have to look at how much the PSN version of that costs. Was going to buy an import PS4 copy since they canned it for the West (outside of the expensive special edition) but kinda don't want to be locked out of the updates/DLC. I know the game won't be anywhere near as good as KOFXIV but...

Re: gamesTM and GamesMaster to end

Suppose it's sad but it's also inevitable.

EDGE needs to go if it hasn't already. Pretentious, up itself industry talk that directly counters the idea of videogames being for entertainment and fun.

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

I'm with kiwimike on this one. Was definitely interested in this device as soon as it was announced because I've always been a Playstation man since the PS1 days BUT I'm not going to be some sort of fanboy mug who pre-orders just because it's a Playstation product, heedless of what the actual includ...

Re: Photo's of your retro collection.

This is everything I currently own. Shame about the lack of PROPER retro but stuff was sold off a long time ago due to either not being used or being worth too much money to just have sitting on a shelf when I have other things to pay for. No fancy storage or displays here I'm afraid! Gamecube colle...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Need for Speed Underground 2 (PS2) - I passed over this when it was current because of all the chav and EA shovelware connotations but that was a serious mistake! Aside from some dodgy music (there ARE a few good tracks...), the game is really enjoyable with great, varied racing, a nice free-roam a...

Re: What System would you like a 'Classic' console for?

Saturn all day long. Fill it with the games that are stupidly expensive and rare and I would be there day one.

A 3DO one full of fantastically crappy FMV games would also be ace though I'd probably be the only one why buys it! Plumbers Don't Wear Ties needs a re-release...

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

I'm interested but only if it comes with some serious value i.e. games that are otherwise rare or very expensive to buy. Wild Arms was a good start because that's a £20-£30 game for the PAL version. Let's see what the rest are! Unfortunately it will probably be mainstream, popular stuff that people ...

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

Urban Reign (PS2) - 100 missions all done. Mission 98 was utter, utter hell and I must have spent an hour (at least) trying to beat it. Great game though, just not the beat 'em up that I expected in a way. Might go through the free play mode now to unlock the rest of the characters. I've managed to...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Been playing Urban Reign on PS2. Surprisingly challenging and doesn't follow a typical beat 'em up structure as I expected. Also it takes 30 missions before any sort of story cutscene and before you get to use two characters for team-up special moves. Multiplayer for the story mode is also off-limit...

Re: GBA Collecting

One way to avoid the fakes a lot of the time is to stay away from US copies with the ESRB ratings logos and the 'Advance' part of the Gameboy Advance on the box in black. Not saying that fakes of Euro GBA games don't happen but for some reason, most of them are knock-offs of the US editions. And in ...

Re: Brave Fencer Musashi PlayStation

The problem you will have is that copies will only be on ebay UK if somebody went to the effort of importing them back in the day and given the game isn't that mainstream, it's not going to be a common sighting. There are NTSC copies available from mainland European sellers and from the US itself. I...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Shock Troopers 2nd Squad - Great game but seriously difficult with bullet patterns becoming almost bullet-hell like in no time at all. Going to have to fire up the original now because I'm not sure I remember it being this unforgiving.

Re: What are you currently playing?

Getting towards the end of Final Fight Streetwise now and I can see this double escort mission potentially breaking me. It's possible to have a bunch of huge enemies swamp the two NPC's you are supposed to be protecting and kill them within seconds. Worst still, these enemies don't flinch or stagge...

Re: Streets of Rage 4 officially announced!!!

Main issue for me is that this needs to be pretty special after the immense Streets of Rage Remake which was incredible for an unofficial product. I mean, I will probably buy it by default anyway because it looks sweet and the new art style + all-new game in general will be awesome after years of pl...
