  1. Yoshi's Crafted World (2019 - Switch)

    It's been a good few years since I played Woolly World but I'd say it probably has the edge Having said that, it's probably a lot closer than I anticipated when I first dipped into Crafted World! I really liked playing Woolly World with the Wii Remote and using the tilt to aim the eggs I have to say, I'm not a huge fan of the original Yoshi's Island, despite playing through it twice!
  2. Football Season 2019-20

    We wouldn't be Liverpool fans if we didn't expect that to happen
  3. Football Season 2019-20

    It's amazing how we keep on finding a way to win! I remember when Klopp first arrived he talking about changing the mentality of the players and the fans. You used to always feel that when Liverpool went a goal down, there was never much of a hope of actually turning the game around to come away with all 3 points.. or, if we were ahead, even by a couple of goals, you didn't feel entirely confident we'd see it out. Everything that has happened in the last few years has been amazing and I'm going to enjoy every second of it because you know it can't last forever! Hopefully we can finally land the Premier League this year It's happening, @MadDog 😢
  4. Yoshi's Crafted World (2019 - Switch)

    It took a little while but I've been back to Yoshi's Crafted World recently and cleared the game this afternoon. When I started it last year, I liked it well enough but was a little torn on what way to tackle the game. Playing through a level while ignoring the collectables would be, like @Hero of Time said, far too short and easy but then I always found myself missing just a single red coin and feeling like I didn't want to be going through the stage again to see if I missed an invisible winged cloud or something Upon my return in recent weeks, I decided I was happy enough to go through each course, collecting as much as I could and moving on. If I ever wish to return to the game, either alone or with my wife or son, there's plenty to return to What I uncovered was a wonderful game that I would probably have loved to take the time to explore and unlock everything in my younger days but one that I find myself struggling to want to commit the time to in 2020. It's a shame because there is so much to like about the game, including the variety and beautiful designs of the stages throughout, and it makes me wish I had all the time in the world to kick back and fully appreciate it. For me, with Woolly Word and Crafted World (Dare I even throw Yoshi's Fruit Cart in..? ), Yoshi games are better than they've ever been

    I don't think so! I certainly can't find an email, anyway.. but it doesn't appear to be any great loss!
  6. Game of the Decade

    It was worryingly difficult
  7. Any ideas..? Initially, I thought it might be due to not having recorded any score at all in the bonus stage as I managed not to get any bananas at all. However, I went back and opened up the bonus stage again only to fail twice more by not managing to hit at least one banana.. much to my frustration. Unlocked it one more time (again, by clearing 4 stages) grabbed a banana and then fell to my death. There was still no medal so I figured I'd clear the final stage again.. and still nothing What am I missing? I'm sure as hell not going back to 10-5..

    It happened to me.. and I'm still waiting for the SNES posters
  12. Games length

    Game length is definitely becoming a huge barrier for me but it's ultimately only really a problem if I'm not finding the game engaging throughout regardless of how many hours it will take! I feel like I'm at the stage where even something that lasts 15-20 hours feels like a significant time commitment, especially if I'm not fully invested. Link's Awakening is a struggle to finish for this very reason, despite it's relative brevity You can even have a game like Journey, which can be finished comfortably in one sitting, that feels too long because it's just not very fun at all. Obviously I'm in the minority with that example but it does highlight that any game is too long if you're not enjoying it! To be honest, my tastes are becoming very limited as I grow older and barely anything seems as satisfying as previously. However, when the next 3D Mario game inevitably comes out I'm gonna be wanting a good 30-40 hours of amazing platforming action as the series always delivers (even Sunshine.. at a push.. when it released..) but preferably without the needless padding out of having to farm coins to get a moon counter up to 999

    I've only ever been the one creating the audio quizzes.. perhaps I need a taste of my own medicine

  23. General Retro Discussion

    I'm watching this at the moment I never really played WipEout until eventually downloading the original on PS3 a few years ago after a brief dabble with WipEout 64. I didn't really like the structure of the N64 version as you only selected one track at a time instead of having to race perfectly through several tracks in a row like on PS1. When I think of WipEout, I only really think about the first entry in the series (and ultimately my favourite) but I did buy Omega Collection on PS4 a few months ago. I played it for a decent amount but just couldn't shake the feeling that I wasn't enjoying it anywhere near as much as either the first game or the vastly superior F-Zero GX and later sold it..
