  1. General Switch Discussion

    There are a few I've deleted that would otherwise be in there. I absolutely love Beat-'Em-Up Bundle and my ambition is to get it to the top!
  2. Mega Drive Mini (19th September 2019)

    I really want a Japanese one. Hope it has Bare Knuckle 3, as I believe that's significantly better than Streets of Rage 3?
  3. General Retro Discussion

    I actually love the Capcom Home Arcade. OK, maybe it would be better if it just looked like two arcade sticks rather than a "Capcom" logo, and maybe there could be more games, but I think they've got the best ones - certainly the unlicensed ones. It's pretty amazing they've included Alien vs. Predator, but unfortunately no Marvel licenses. If the visual display, lack of input lag etc are all good then I'll probably get one. Next up we need a System 16/System 32 Sega Home Arcade with Golden Axe and Spider-Man.
  4. I remember people talking about ray-tracing years ago, and some hoping it would be in the Xbox 360/PS3 gen, with others pointing out it was way too early. And now it's finally here. Not that I know what it is.
  5. Marvel's Phase Three

    They've used the Time Stone to go back to 1989!
  6. Brexit 2019

    Just wanted to say I think you're right about these things. Whilst I may have come to conclusion that leaving the EU isn't worth the stress and strain, I do think there have been legitimate misgivings about the EU building up for many years (with each treaty that gets signed, especially). I particularly feel not enough attention has been given to the fear of ever-closer union. Whilst a "United States of Europe" may be for own good, I think the public resents the perceived secrecy around it. Many on the continent seem to be enthusiastic about a federal Europe, whereas our prime ministers have signed each treaty as quietly as they could (especially Lisbon) and never put across the positive sides of the concept. Either way, rightly or wrongly, I do feel the UK is not ready to be a full part of such a project. (And the flip side is, we're holding them back.) Which brings us to the discussions between Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn. Being part of a full Customs Union with the EU completely eliminates the backstop (and as the problem so far has been the refusal of the DUP to get on board, I'm surprised they didn't come to this conclusion earlier). On top of that, how about we pledge alignment with the Single Market? That would solve the Irish border issue. This would ruin the plans of the hard-right deregulators (notice how angry they are about it) and keep us in the European market while giving us back independence over non-trade matters and full border control. And when the European Army is formed, we should of course be the closest ally. The Customs Union + alignment with Single Market plan would place us on an outer circle of the EU, which my gut instinct tells me is what most Brits want, and might actually be the right form of Brexit.
  7. Brexit 2019

    I'm genuinely shocked and surprised by the lack of progress yesterday, and appalled at the way decent MPs such as Nick Boles and Dominic Grieve have been sidelined and humiliated. It's hard to imagine what's going to happen next - I hope there are enough honourable Conservative MPs left to bring the Government down if necessary, but I'm losing faith. Personally, I do not fear a Hard Brexit economically - I agree we'll work something out. I'm just angry that the economic hard-right have been allowed to pursue their deregulatory Brexit. The Leave vote was sold on "We could be like Norway" and "No one's suggesting we leave the Single Market", when the truth is those weren't their intentions at all.
  8. In terms of playing, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero was 25%-off recently, so I've been massively enjoying that. Fulfilled my ambition of getting the Speed Run and 100% Speed Run. Similar story with the excellent Sky Force Anniversary. As for buying, at the moment I think it's just going to be Aggelos. Looks like a genuinely good Wonder Boy-style game, and presumably won't be too expensive. I also have credit on my eShop account just waiting for Shantae and the Pirate's Curse to be discounted again, as well as Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom. Also, can never rule out any Sega Ages or Hamster titles. We'll see what gets released with those.
  9. Dead or Alive: Xtreme 3 Scarlett

    Ah, now I get it! This explains Brexit.
  10. Switch eShop Thread

    Oh, those were the days. @Fused King forced every single Wii owner to buy it!
  11. Dead or Alive: Xtreme 3 Scarlett

    Isn't that where the driver sits? Or are you on top deck?
  12. Brexit 2019

    Yeah, that's my understanding of it too. Whilst it makes trade deals with the rest of the world less likely for us (and certainly rules out tariff-free trade), there could still be a divergence in standards of goods. That's why, despite all the criticisms (and I have read them), I still think Customs Union + Single Market is the only decent form of Brexit. Not that I want any form of Brexit at all. Surely, as it's causing this much trouble and upsetting so many people, it should be called off? I know loads of Leave voters and I guarantee very few had any idea of how complicated it was. I'd say the largely unforeseen issue of the Irish border alone is enough to think again. Three years on, we should find out what "the will of the people" actually is now.
  13. Mega Drive Mini (19th September 2019)

    Looks stunning! Am I greedy though for thinking it should be about 80 games?
  14. Sega Ages (Summer M2)

    Looking forward to Wonder Boy in Monster Land and arcade Shinobi.
  15. Brexit 2019

    At least things are becoming clearer, I say. Kenneth Clarke's full Customs Union plan and Margaret Beckett's Confirmatory Referendum plan were the two most popular options in the indicative votes, so hopefully support for those will galvanise on Monday. The most obvious way forward is to put the Customs Union plan (probably the only type of Brexit that could get through Parliament) vs Remain in another referendum. I also like the way they're calling it a Confirmatory Referendum, because no one can say we've had one of those. This is assuming the EU will allow a long extension, though (thank goodness for Donald Tusk). If not, Theresa May really should just revoke Article 50 and put and end to this mess.
