    Sega Lord X with a video on The Sega CD - Mega CD Top 10 WELCO METOT HENEX TLEVEL
  3. AI: The Somnium Files

    That trailer tells me absolutely nothing about this game... which is all I need to know!
  4. Nintendo Switch Online: SNES

    As great as Super Metroid is, it does have some finiky controls sometimes.
  5. Today
  6. AI: The Somnium Files

    Launch trailer: According to the E-shop, it's out 20-09, but I've got the shipping notice for my copy (CE). It's one of the 3 "big" games I chose for this month, skipping the likes of Zelda and Ni no Kuni (for now).
  7. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    I wonder why. 2 generations late at this point. Maybe Niantic forgot about Kecleon at this point? Clearly not Mystery Dungeon fans.
  8. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    Nope still no sign of him.
  9. What Have You Bought?

    I've heard it's really bad. Maddox has reverted to a weird lil bitch called George who is trying to bang his co-host
  10. Rate the last film you saw

    Yes!! I thought I was going crazy too, I really love it but no one else seems that into it. To be honest, I didn't find it that scary, but it was certainly creepy and had some cool looking monsters. That spider for example But I liked it despite not really being scared, the characters were fantastic and it was cool to have new flashbacks with the kid actors. The opening with the gay couple was genuinely pretty triggering, talk about brutal. And the arcade scene made me SO SAD, took me back to my many experiences with unrequited love. 4.5/5 P.S. Thanks man, now I've got that song stuck in my head too lol. Hobbs and Shaw: I reluctantly went to see this with a friend, I'm not really one for Fast and Furious, but it was pretty funny for what it was and I kinda applaud them for just being so ridiculously crazy. I thought F&F films were about cars lol but this is like some superhero movie, that scene at the end with the helicopter and the connected trucks was hilarious and bad ass. 3/5 Hustlers: I never noticed until this film but I LOVE JENNIFER LOPEZ. Holy shit she is incredible for this, I just want to climb into her fur coat and tell me everything is going to be okay. I've got to see this again ASAP 5/5
  11. House buying is the worst

    I was so naive when this thread was created. House buying is nothing compared to the combination of house buying and selling at the same time.
  12. Child of Light and Valiant Hearts coming to Switch

    I finished Valiant Hearts yesterday, and the game got me into documentaries about WW1 again. Such a crazy war with a lot of amazing footage still surviving from those days. The more I played this game the more I got sucked in to the story. Gameplay is nothing to write home about, but that is okay since it's more about the visual experience and the narrative of course. I wonder if we'll see more games using the UbiArt-engine in the future.
  13. Football Season 2019-20

    Strange start to the season so far. United have had what many would consider a disastrous start, yet we're in 4th and only 2 points behind City. With the exception of Liverpool (who have had an easy start, lets see where they are at the end of October) everyone has had a rather unremarkable first 5. The answer must lie with teams who we expect to normally finish lower down the league, all of whom have already won a game. The only two teams without a win are Wolves and Watford, which is mad considering many expected them to break top 6 this year. So maybe the league is just leveling out a bit more in terms of quality? One thing is for sure, next time the international games roll around I think we're going to see a lot of new faces in the England team. There's some really exciting talent coming through (especially at United, Chelsea, Norwich, Leicester, Arsenal). Shaping up to be a good season.

  16. Rate the last film you saw

    I do love them all (not Seed) equally but I liked Cult because they actually brought back the original Andy and Kyle from the second one and Tiffany from the later ones, which I thought added a nice touch of nostalgia for me since I've been following these movies since I was a kid. I also loved Curse for its creepier tone rather than black comedy. Bride is always a great blend of both horror and comedy and 1 and 3 are wicked but 2 always has a soft spot for me. It's the first time Chucky shows more personality as well as a funny but sadistic side to him. The photocopier kill always creeped me out when I was a kid.
  17. What Have You Bought?

    I hadn't heard of it until now. Might give it a listen.
  18. General Gaming Sales/Charts Discussion

    I don't think Backwards compatibility was part of some grand plan to differentiate the console, I just think it was a much requested feature than they managed to implement, and implement well. I'm sure Playstation gamers would love the feature too, regardless of how used it ends up being. It's better than not having it there, to the point where I'm sure PS5 will be backwards compatible. I think it's fair to say Sony have sat back and just released great games this gen. They haven't had to do much else obviously. Xbox has done a lot more behind the scenes to set them up for next gen, and Game Pass could be/already is a game changer.
  19. What Have You Bought?

    @Happenstance you a fan of post-Lawsuit Maddox's podcast about Godzilla?
  20. General Gaming Sales/Charts Discussion

    I'm not sure you can say Sony have "coasted" by focusing on developing excellent first party games, as that is the most important thing to do (and is difficult) as a console owner, and something Microsoft have struggled to do. So long as the PS5 is the place that has the games people want to play again then those other features aren't going to matter so much. Games will always be king, and I'm yet to be convinced that Microsoft will have its own Bloodborne, God of War, Persona 5, Last Guardian, etc... I've also said it before but I think the reason Microsoft released these additional features (such as backwards compatibility) was because they were behind and trying to differentiate their console and attract new customers. I do think however that they focused on the wrong thing - people are often vocal about wanting features like backwards compatibility but ultimately it is very underused and most people play new games. Microsoft acquiring new studios is a step in the right direction for next gen but so far this is a completely unproven unknown as to whether we'll see smash hits.

  23. Nintendo Switch Online: SNES

    Speaking of Capcom games... Yes, that was the final boss. Yes, that was the background. Yes, Breath of Fire 2 does the same thing. Probably because of the complicated sprite. No, I'm not showing you that, that would be spoilers. As I mentioned in a previous post, I only ever played the GBA version of Breath of Fire 2 beforehand, so I was keen on seeing where this admittedly forgotten series started. Some quick observations. Oh dear lord, there's no run button like the GBA version of BoF2 I played had, and it's very noticable! It makes the game really slow paced. It took me 29 and a half hours to beat it. Some characters are just flat out better than others. 3 of your 8 members are essentially useless and should never be used in battles. 2 of them can be fused with someone else so they at least contribute something, but the 8th character? No chance, he's utter crap. The translation may be actually competent (Square did the translation, not Capcpom), but the story is a bit bland and lets it down. It's not awful, it's just there. By comparison, BoF2 has a legitmately innovative story (for 1994, a lot of RPG's have ripped off it's big twist since) and hilariously bad translation. Character designs are great, anthropormorphic animal party members are surprisingly rare in RPG's, which helps BoF stand out with it's party. The actual character personalities are meh, though. It's nice to see multiple endings, but I couldn't figure out how to get the best ending for the life of me, so I had to look it up. Yeah, I never would have found what I needed without a guide. Amzingly enough, BoF2 was worse in this regard as not only is it's best ending hard to find, but it could be lost forever if you killed a certain boss. It's a decent RPG and I had fun with it, but I'd only recommend this to the die-hard RPG enthusiast. I also finished Super Metroid... again... but this time on Switch. The Space Jump in this game will forever be unreliable. I actually find it easier to do constant wall jumps off of a single wall!
  24. Indie Games

    Neon Drive revs onto the Switch eShop on September 19th priced at £9.99 Habroxia blasts onto the Nintendo Switch on September 26th priced at £6.99 (with a 20% off launch discount) Check the articles for details and trailers for both titles.
  25. ShopTo have this for under £40 if anyone didn't know. I know a lot of people probably opted for that sweet sweet Nintendo store edition, but for those who slept on it and it's now out of stock (me), this is s decent price for a new (kind of new as it's old but new ), release.
  26. General Switch Discussion

    That's one thing I'm looking forward to doing over the weekend. I held off picking up DQ XI on the PS4 because I always had plenty on the go but with the prospect of a meaty demo available, and the possibility of continuing from where that ends in the full game if I pick it up, I think it's time to finally give it a go. It has been awhile since I've played a DQ game (think it might have been playing the release of 5 on the DS) but I really liked 9 and this looks to carry just enough new with the old for me. Looking forward to trying it and hopefully if I enjoy it, I'll be picking it up next week. Though, given the sheer volume of games coming out this week, whether I have any money left for it is another question (Overland, Sayonara Wild Hearts, Untitled Goose Game, etc.).
  27. I'll be there once the "decent graphics patch" arrives.
