  1. Speaking of Easy Allies... It's time!
  2. Wow, it has been so long since the Kickstarter and it's great to see so many positive impressions coming in. I've been kept well in the loop as a backer but because its been so long I kind of put it to the back of my mind because I trust the developer. Now that it is out... the hype is finally real and each video that I watch I'm just thinking to myself... I want to play this game now! I know it won't be long, I know I've got other games to play but this is going to be top of the pile when it arrives.

    Another high quality video from Sega Lord X featuring the best looking Sega Saturn games. Some truly amazing titles in there, I've played a fair few of them but I wouldn't mind trying out some of those games we didn't get over here at some point.
  4. I can't wait for this, I also backed it on day one, went with the Alchemist's Treasure tier so that I'd get a physical copy which should be for the Switch with any luck. They're sending out the games first and the extras later, hopefully I should have the game by the end of the month, so we'll likely have a review of it in July. I'm very eager to play it though.
  5. Fair point, I just thought they did really well under the circumstances but I might have been being a bit hyperbolic I still enjoyed the video though but I hope the Carpet Awards return. As for what's the deal with Ian wearing lipstick and painting his nails... I guess he likes to do those things and so, he does. I'm not sure if there's much else to say really, but Ian's great and as are the rest of the Easy Allies, they all add something to the lineup... Ben - is the most enthused I've seen anyone for anything anime related in general, also cats Brandon - is the business side of things, knows about trailers and Star Wars/Disney hype Bloodworth - is responsible for co-ordinating everything, driving game enthusiast Brad - keeps it real most of the time, likes Soulsborne games more than most Damiani - is the Nintendo/Final Fantasy/MMO guy, has had some great podcasts Don - is the film guy, best B-roll in the biz and an exceptional story-teller Huber - is hype personified, really likeable guy... Resident Evil, Evil Within, Shenmue & Yakuza, let's go! Ian - seems to be the most compassionate of all the Allies, exceptional on the technical side as well Kyle - is really creative (see Box Peek) and has a wicked sense of humour at times, good at hosting That's how I see things anyway, everyone's got their strengths and weaknesses but they make a really good team and I'm generally pleasantly surprised by the content they put out.
  6. Then "tsk tsk" no more for it has now been fixed. (hopefully) Fire Emblem is one of those titles which was just tricky to get the right size images for the banners, I should have double-cheked it though. I really need to get a proper capturing setup sorted so that I can get some better images for things like this, this will hopefully be happening soon.
  7. Report a Bug! [Read OP first]

    The forum seems to be OK now but the main site has been producing a few errors and has been refusing to load, it's up now but just barely... That message has come up a few times, and the "This Month's Most Viewed" section isn't showing anything but the header currently on the main page but they show up on articles... ...conversely, the side box images are showing up on the main page but not when viewing any article. And now they've vanished from the main page as well. (all I can say is that I didn't touch or break anything as I haven't uploaded anything today for a change) Edit - all seems to be fine now.
  8. General Retro Discussion

    My Life in Gaming video about Cartridge Save File Preservation. I'm sure it will be interesting, I'll be watching it myself as soon as I've finished watching Boundary Break.
  9. Here is the final article for our Top Ten Game Boy Advance Games. Thanks to @RedShell for the visually stunning banner/side graphics. and @Glen-i plus @Dcubed once again for organising this, I always enjoy reading the write-ups plus I usually learn something as well. Also thanks to the N-E community for contributing, the GBA is one of those systems which was released at such a turning point that it's fascinating to read peoples thoughts on. (my contribution was making the game banners in the article and getting it uploaded) I did incorporate an actual GBA logo this time, I think it turned out reasonably well so I'll try and do the same for the GameCube and beyond. Enjoy! And here's to the next one.

    Some masterful editing on that highlights video @RedShell I really liked the varied music and effects, especially the ones at the end. I'm glad that you managed to capture my bomb-jumping on the Monado stage, I managed to avoid falling into the abyss for quite a while there. It's a shame the same cannot be said for manic-hammering Jigglypuff.
  11. No carpet awards this year (the award was stolen) but... damn, Ian and Don have outdone themselves for E3 2019. I loved the video and I though Ian did really well to keep going through all of E3, plus Don just has some of the best B-Roll and commentary.

    You've got to admire the amount of extras available from using the GBA Link cable. I remember downloading and playing all of those Sega mini games when they were first available in PSO Episode I&II back in the day. I'm not sure if I ever unlocked them in Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg though I do remember the cracking multiplayer on that game, hours of fun.
