Only things open for us are the Supermarkets and some fast food retailers, I did raid my local Crack Converters and Game not all that long ago as they had a massive 360 clear out so stocked up (was pence a game), whole market will maybe drop after this epidemic though as people are going to have little to no spending money while everything gets back on it's feet.

Same here, But the PM did say...: "If you need Puzzles to help with Kids in Isolation, then you may go get Puzzles." 8)

Whoops I re-read your quote. About 15-20% of Shops are open, mainly the big ones though.

I need to get this downloaded. Can't believe it's finally a reality after all these years of rumours, wishlist appearances etc.

Streets of Rage 4 “Wow” absolutely amazing! Finished it a few times with Blaze who I think is the best character also did it with the dude with metal using buffs. Loads of hidden characters

Also a PS1 mini with the front end it had Mame, Final Burn, Neo Geo, Colecovision, Atari 800, Megadrive, Game Gear, Gameboy, Amiga, Atari 2600 Etc. All with amazing front ends with photos, box art, game descriptions, story’s etc etc appearing in a window. Every game has its own overlay and the Tyris Flare Bezels and front end are absolutely amazing. You can also get T shirts featuring that art off her.

Well I bought the game and I see what you mean. Especially those fat biker women. Also hate the guys with the shields and the girls that jump around throwing grenades.

Also, f*** the last boss when it gets to the bit with the massive robot.

I appreciate the continue service thing but it sucks that you can't just continue on the spot. Will have to have another crack at it over the the weekend, perhaps. Couldn't be arsed fighting all the way through that last stage again.

Overall however, I am very happy with SoR4. The graphical style is fantastic and I really like how you can now do big juggling combos and chain hits/specials together. The best combo I've had so far is a 700+ hit one. It was enough to pop the "Combo Master" trophy anyway.
