  1. Capcom Beat' Em Up Bundle

    I always wanted to play as Haggar, but was never very good using him. But yes, Final Fight is the beat 'em up, only truly rivalled by Streets of Rage 2. Actually, there are some Sega ones I like as much, such as Golden Axe and Spider-Man, but that's just me. If you want another tip for a game of this genre, try Arcade Archives Double Dragon. You might find it slightly unimpressive compared to FF, but it's a true classic and I think it holds up well. When I saw that first image I thought "Cody's slimmed down!"
  2. Capcom Beat' Em Up Bundle

    Yeah, I think the Japanese version of the GBA port is my favourite, for the reasons you mentioned. Lower-pixel graphics, but it plays so well, especially with Alpha Cody. Anyway, I've downloaded Capcom Beat 'Em Up Bundle and am looking forward to playing it tonight. Just looking through the art gallery reminds me of why I loved Capcom in this era so much. The visual design is so on-point, and evokes a feeling it's hard to explain. Like you are seeing the peak of 2D, certainly in terms of design and character.
  3. Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition HD

    Ah, that's interesting. Before I'd investigated this at all, I genuinely assumed it was the same game but with chibi visuals.
  4. Sega Mega Drive Classics (Winter 2018)

    Yes, this is quite surprising, but I'm hoping it means Sega Ages has an absolute focus on the arcade versions. With Golden Axe, that means better graphics vs. extra levels and a thong!
  5. Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition HD

    So, skipping to the gameplay at approx. 9:00 onwards, is it really just hitting the enemies, with the A.I. taking care of the other roles? I'm still quite intrigued, but less so if it's too simple. Does it have spells, special moves and skill trees?
  6. Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition HD

    Has anyone got this yet? I went to download it last night but was 75p short!
  7. I thought this deserved its own thread: Final Fight Captain Commando King of Dragons Knights of the Round Warriors of Fate Armored Warriors Battle Circuit The proper coin-op versions of each, at last! The Switch is becoming an absolute beast of a retro arcade simulator. Out 18 September.
  8. Final Fantasy X / X-2 on Switch (2019)

    I'm chuffed too. Although I've owned a PS2 and PS3, I do mainly stick to Nintendo, so can't wait to play every Final Fantasy remaster they announced. I do prefer turn-based combat, but am really looking forward to XII as well.

    And Cadillacs & Dinosaurs. It's a shame there can't just be a good-natured agreement about licenced stuff, as I can't believe anyone is seriously going to lose out by letting a company re-release them as they were. Some of the best games in this very genre were licenced - Sega's Spider-Man springs to mind.

    That was awesome. Capcom beat'em-ups collection (I forget what it's really called) is something I've wanted for ages. Will be great to have that on my Switch. The Final Fantasy news was so brilliant and overwhelming, I couldn't keep up. XV Pocket Edition available now? VI and some of the others on their way? I've wanted to replay XII for ages and "get it right" (I played it badly last time), so am really pleased about that. And best of all, Animal Crossing is on its way! The most magical experience on 3DS updated for Switch! To think we thought there wouldn't be any surprises... That was really, really good.
  11. Nintendo (re)Direct(ed) (13/09 11pm UK)

    I hoped so too...
  12. Nintendo (re)Direct(ed) (13/09 11pm UK)

    TOWN looks very promising indeed.
  13. Nintendo (re)Direct(ed) (13/09 11pm UK)

    Capcom beat-'em-ups! YESSSSSS!!!!
  14. Nintendo (re)Direct(ed) (13/09 11pm UK)

    I dread to think what it'll be if there's a Golden Sun collection!
  15. How Are You? (Mental Health Thread)

    I saw a proposal to actually put a mental health worker in each GP practice. It would make a huge difference, in my opinion. When people are suffering with their mental health they are at their weakest, and the thought of getting to a distant location (eg. a hospital) can be too much.
