  1. Yakuza 7 (PS4 2020)

    I'll put this in a spoiler. Here's just one of the many characters you can summon into battle. It plays out like a cross between an anime and Final Fantasy. Amazing!
  2. Your 2020 Gaming Diary

    My playing through of the NES library on the Switch continues. Double Dragon II This one took some getting used to. The way they changed the buttons so that an attack differs depending on what direction you are facing was very fiddly to get to grips with. The game looks prettier than the original but it is far easier and shorter, despite it having more stages. Some of the stages were VERY short but had a pretty cool mechanic. One had you fighting on a helicopter and the door would constantly open and close, sucking you out of it if you got too close. It was great fun leading the enemies up towards it just as it opened. I was surprised to see so many sections of the game playing as straight 2D brawlers. In the first game the developers used an isometric view but with this one most of the stages are a simple, flat 2D plain. I finished the game and was greeted with this message. I guess playing it on normal wasn't sufficient to see an ending back in the NES days. I played through it again on the hardest difficulty and finally got to see the proper ending. Oh, and every time this guy showed up I couldn't help but think of Coming to America. Ghosts n Goblins Seeing as I played a game that required two play throughs to see the end, I figured my next game would be this. Man, this game is absolutely solid. I thought Ninja Gaiden was tough but this one really takes the biscuit. There are so many ways to be killed and you are constantly being flooded with enemies above and below. It's not as if you can take your time either because all of the while you have the clock running down which will ultimately send you back to beginning of the stage if it runs out. The Firebrand enemy is such a pain in the backside. You can see just how cheap this enemy is with it's attacks when you rewind the game. In fact, this goes for a lot of the NES games i'm playing. I did manage to finish it twice but was greeted with this... I didn't realise you needed a certain weapon to get the ending so I had to play through the last couple of stages again! *points to previously used Jim Carey gif* River City Ransom This is a game i've never played but i'm very familiar with the series and art style. I played the hell out of World Cup on the NES and it uses the same character models as this. What a fun little game this is. It has some hilarious character animations that had me laughing away. Like some of the previous NES games i've played so far this year, this also has nice chunky graphics that really help the characters stand out. The soundtrack is also pretty great. It's just a shame the game is short. I would have liked a more lengthier campaign. I did't really bother much with the RPG elements of the game as they aren't really needed. Once you get both the triple kick and triple punch power ups then you are pretty much set.

    @Ganepark32 has. It was his GOTY last year. Check out the thread on the General Gaming board.

    Agreed about Luigi's Mansion. The game, as well as Next Level Games, deserve that level of success. I wonder if there is any region where Pokemon Shield actually outsold Pokemon Sword? Ring Fit Adventure probably could have done much better if the stock situation was the same as over here. You've not been able to get ahold of it all of this month and only now stock is starting to trickle through. The Switch has also been dominating sales in Japan but that is to be expected. The dedicated home console market over there is pretty much dead and unless you have a handheld component to your device then it's not going to make a dent. I think Nintendo's grip on that market will even continue when the new consoles arrive.
  8. Pokémon Trading

    @Aneres11 I've one ready for you.
  9. Pokémon Trading

    I'm pretty sure I bred one for Hazel. I'll fire the game up and have a look. You free to trade any time soon?
  10. Ring Fit Adventure

    Signed in this morning and seen that you've once again disappeared from my list, @RedShell. I haven't a clue what's going on with this thing. Very annoying.

    That's annoying. I'm sat here waiting for him to do his epic turn.

    @RedShell deleting you worked. Goodies are now on the way to you.

    Yeah, pretty big news that one. It's an interesting move and one that will no doubt bring a new audience to Sony's games and a new cash flow to the company. Microsoft games on PC and Nintendo consoles. Sony games on PC. Crazy times we live in. Time for Nintendo to break the walls down and join the party.
