    It's such a standout technically impressive title isn't it? I can't believe that I didn't even try the game cartridge until now but in a way I'm glad I waited as it's great on my current setup. Have you played the game much at all? I found it a bit tricky to get to grips with the controls but I could see how the game could be fun once you get used to how it plays. Yes, It certainly sounds like it helped to leave quite the lasting legacy, especially bridging the gap between SNES 3D and N64 3D graphics. I can say that the Analogue Super NT is one of the best purchases I've made this year and I don't regret putting down a pre-order for the Mega SG at the same time. Though largely thanks to that, those two consoles and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are my last purchases of the year and I'll be cutting back on the game purchases now. Heck, I only lucked into getting Resident Evil 2 when I did thanks to my brother getting the game cheap and then offering it to me for a trade which was more than fair. I can definitely say that I have most of the games that I want now, so it's about time that I put in the effort and played some of them while I can.

    @Hero-of-Time and anyone else who loves Resident Evil 2, check out the latest DF Retro which goes through every single version. I'm definitely going to play that N64 version at some point soon.
  3. General Switch Discussion

    I'm pretty sure I saw those controllers in my local Tesco store yesterday, worth a try if you local branch stocks Switch stuff.

    That's pretty cool, I had no idea. I'm glad to hear that the game lives on at least in terms of what it achieved technically, I just did a quick search for the PCB and it's definitely impressive. It is pretty amazing to think that just on Nintendo platforms, we've gone from big cartridges (NES,SNES,N64) to various optical media (GC,Wii,WiiU) and now we're onto game cards really from DS, to 3DS and now the Switch being the natural evolution of that, the card size may be limited but I think the compression techniques used especially by Nintendo is the new feat of technical wizardry (even though it has been around for years and just refined) equivelant of all the special chips that we used to get inside these cartridges. I definitely think it's important to keep knowledge of all these things alive, so it's great to hear that you're showing some of the kids how games used to be. Often if I find the subject turning to games in conversation at work, I find myself saying "I miss the old days when you'd just get a game on a cartridge and it just worked" For all the advancements, at least in the retro scene, it feels like everything is coming almost full circle with the FPGA technology used in the Super NT and upcoming Mega SG. It's a great time to be a gamer.

    I just wanted to say that, while clearing out stuff I found a boxed SNES which had a pack in game taped across the front of the box that I'd had for years and not played. That game is called Vortex... and it turns out that it's an Argonaut developed game in association with Electro Brain and Sony Electronic Publishing. It came out in 1994, inbetween Star Fox and Stunt Race FX... I wouldn't say it's the best game from a gameplay perspective, but on a technical level... wow. It uses the Super FX chip and it has Dolby Pro Logic on the cart... I mean, just the title music playing on my Super NT through my surround sound blew me away. Very ambitious for its time, you control a transforming robot mech effectively, so you can have an upright mech, rover type vehicle or a jet, all at the press of a button. It's just really impressive for what it is and I'm glad that I have it there for if I choose to play it some more at some point despite its fiddly controls and difficulty. Anyway, you can get it for around £10 - £15 boxed... at the moment, if you see it for that price or cheaper, I would advise picking it up if only for it being a technical marvel.
  6. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Ah OK thanks, I thought that was probably the case but I just wanted to be sure. I don't mind, I'm having fun unlocking the characters while playing the game at my own pace. But I'll absolutely be up for some Smash online if we have a tournament or maybe on Thursdays after Mario Kart if that's what others will be doing.
  7. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    For the online, this might be an obvious question but... Regardless of who you've unlocked in single player... is everyone there? I'm guessing you're stuck with whoever you've unlocked so far, if so... I'll play online at a later date but I'm still interested.
  8. Finally managed to play nearly three hours on this, it's glorious, I need to play it more. I won't get to play it more until tomorrow night but it will be worth the wait. I'm definitely designating Sunday as Smash day though. Playing this with a brand new GameCube controller via the GC controller adapter just makes playing the game even more satisfying.
  9. Same... *goes back to camping underneath the letterbox*
  10. Happy Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launch day! I hope everyone who got it either early or digital enjoys it.

    Really? I'm surprised at that, every cartridge I've tried in my Super NT works first time. But then I have only tried three Super Nintendo carts so far, a Super GameBoy 2 and a handful of GameBoy carts. Which ones wouldn't work?
  12. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

    Well, that'd work!
  13. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

    That's OK... I'll join you all next time. I'll find something to do with those extra two hours... *sets up camp in front of the letter box at 9PM sharp in preparation for the arrival of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate*
  14. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

    In! Going physical for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate so I won't be getting it until tomorrow at some point and I won't be playing it until tomorrow night unless it arrives very early.
