  1. good stuff thread.

    As documented in the purchases thread, I bought some Saturn games from @S.C.G. They arrived today, which is good news in itself, but alongside a little freebie*, there was this note, which also had a rather impressive drawing of the Saturn logo on the back: It's the little things that make the difference, so I just wanted to highlight what a splendid chap Sam is. *a 1.72 scale Porsche, which matches the Golf and Beetle I already have. I don't think I've ever posted them here, so it's a hell of a good guess.
  2. What Have You Bought?

    ^^^ I have those same smart plugs. Controlling stuff with your voice becomes addicting, so welcome to the club! I've become accustomed to having my phone for music in the Civic, so I've bought a Bluetooth FM Transmitter for the Passat. I was a bit wary of them, as I used to have a wired one ages ago that sounded like shit for music, but things must have moved on a lot since then, as this one's audio quality is superb. At least to my uneducated ears. Also bought some Saturn games off of @S.C.G:
  3. good stuff thread.

  4. General Retro Discussion

    I bought a brand new, still sealed copy of Defcon 5 in a first generation case. The thing was immaculate. It was weird taking the little sticker off and opening a brand new Saturn game all these years later.
  5. good stuff thread.

    Got a free car today. Well, almost free. My dad bought a new car, so he's said I can have his old one, providing I buy him a McDonald's at some point. It's nothing too glamorous, but it'll do as a workhorse and keep the miles off my Civic and Scirocco.
  6. House buying is the worst

    Nah, we were like "Yo, could you put a new red toilet seat in, but then trample all over it and make it look nice and dusty?" Actual answer: The photo makes it look redder than it actually is. The black cistern is original to the house. Our bathroom and toilet were basically like a saw movie before we started. Barely any better than it is currently to be honest.
  7. House buying is the worst

    Well that's fucked it. Fortunately it's all planned and will be much nicer in about 2 weeks. We're knocking through so the toilet and bathroom are one room and we're having a nice new suite put in.
  8. Screenshot Thread

    Some more NFS:Heat screenshots:
  9. The crystals are also in Knights of the Old Republic when customising your lightsaber. I can't remember if they add stats or just determine the colour.
  10. I forgot that Luke had 2. I think it was because it showed his green one earlier in a flashback which confused me.
  11. My main gripe with the film is that there were no consequences to anything. Also, I may be misremembering it, but shouldn't one of the lightsabers at the end have been green?
  12. I'm sure we used to have a screenshot thread, but I can't seem to find it so here's a new one. NFS: Heat is a rather good looking game, although the photo mode could do with being labelled a bit better (you hold the right stick in to access it and the game doesn't explain that at all).
  13. What Have You Bought?

    I've been meaning to get both of them for a while, but I've been waiting for the price to come down. DOA has been cheap for a while, but I just hadn't got round to ordering it. As I saw NFS was cheap, I figured I'd order both together. NFS: Heat is pretty good so far. The police are absolute bullshit, but other than that, it's a decent game.
  14. Game of the Decade

    My top games in no particular order. Also, I can't be arsed to do 10, so I'll just keep going until I cover them all. Shenmue 3 The fact that it exists at all is enough in itself, the fact that it exists in the form that it does it is just incredible. They took the insane decision to update it just enough to bring in some modern conveniences, but generally leave it exactly as it was on the Dreamcast. Lot of games claim to be "for the fans" but I feel Shenmue 3 truly was, even if it potentially alienated any newcomers with it's archaic gameplay. Red Dead Redemption 2 Absolutely the best storytelling and game world in my opinion. The way the story plays out was just great and combined with the stunning scenery and music makes it one of the best examples of mature storytelling. Persona 4: Golden and 5 I'm going to lump them into one, as they're basically great for the same reason. Awesome story, characters and style. Persona 4 has the better story and characters and Persona 5 has the better style and music, but both are amazing. Nier: Automata I don't think I've ever played a game with gameplay this good before or since. Just moving around the world was fun in itself, especially when combined with the great soundtrack. The story got a little bit "anime" at times, but there were some great moments (poor Pascal) littered throughout. The Witcher 3 The first game I got on the PS4 and probably my favourite fantasy RPG. Consistently great in all areas and filled with loads of interesting side missions and stories. May have to go back and play it again now that the series is out on Netflix. Shadow of the Colossus (PS4) Cheating a bit, as it's a remake of a 2005/2006 game, but it's still a great game and from what I've read, the PS4 version is the version it always deserved. I just love the setting and the way the story plays out. There's a certain sadness and loneliness to it that makes it a really memorable experience. Pokemon Go Mainly just for the sheer phenomenon of it. I remember walking around town playing it and always being able to see at least one other person playing, wherever I went. I even had an old guy who was stood outside his shop, wishing me good hunting. For the first month or so, it was like actually being in a Pokemon game, with the whole world apparently obsessed with Pokemon.
