  1. N-E Cafe Podcast

    I subscribed through SoundCloud. Just listened to it & I think everyone involved has done an excellent job! I enjoyed the discussion to the rather good listener question too! 😜 I was impressed with the quality of the music and transitions between sections. The discussions started flowing better as the Podcast went on and I found it very listenable. I enjoyed all three of you & your opinions - it didn’t sound forced to me. Anyway, you don’t need a review from me - fantastic job & I recommend anyone reading this to give it a listen.
  2. N-E Cafe Podcast

    Logo looks good and this sounds like a great idea. There’s certainly room for 2 separate podcasts. I listen to some sites that have multiple podcasts, sometimes with different staff, sometimes the same, and it works fine. If talk is interesting then it doesn’t matter if some topics are duplicated. I’m happy to contribute, although it looks as though there are plenty of offers, and for me it would make more sense for it to be staffers (although of course if there are ever any spaces on the staff... 😂). Couple of listener questions if you want them: ~ With the rumours of Terry Bogurt joining the Smash Bros cast this shortly, which fighter do you think will be announced next and when? ~ Nintendo chief Furukawa was recently quoted as wanting more 3DS franchises on Switch. Which franchises would you like to see appear?
  3. The Wrasslin' thread

    So tonight’s WWE Smackdown will be interesting since the majority of their roster are apparently still stuck in Saudi Arabia due to plane issues. I had been thinking about that recently and what a risky idea it is to hold two large live events across two days so far apart. I guess they’re fortunate that the majority of female wrestlers didn’t go, along with the likes of Daniel Bryan and Sami Zayn. Expect a lot of women wrestling tonight and a load of NXT call-ups if the first match is anything to go by.
  4. Rugby World Cup 2019

    It was a hard one to pick a ‘favourite’ to face next weekend, but I agree with your thinking. Hard luck on Wales today though, and it would’ve been amazing for Warren Gatland to have coached them to a World Cup Final. I’m coaching next Saturday morning so I haven’t worked out yet how I’ll be able to watch it, or if I risk somehow trying to avoid the score (not easy being based in a Sports Hall!) and watching a recording at home...!
  5. And there’s your answer! 😃 I remember playing a friend’s Sonic Spinball on the Master System (boy I wish it had been my copy as it’s worth a fair bit these days!) and it was just a horrible game to control and play. Like many others I played the Mega Drive version through the Mega Collection and while better it’s just not a good pinball game and not a good action game. At least it tries something different though. Mario Pinball is just a poor poor game, where the physics are all over the place. It looks ok, but plays appallingly. Sonic Spinball is the ‘better’ game for me, although that’s not much of an accolade is it!? Fun thread though @Dcubed! 😂
  6. Games Done Quick

    The Super Mario Bros 3 100% race is back, which is always a great watch, even if it doesn’t show anything new. I’m intrigued by the Zelda marathon of games among many others.
  7. Football Season 2019-20

    You were exceedingly unlucky, although it’s winning hard fought games like these that will really boost Liverpool’s confidence. I’ve been so impressed with Sheff Utd so far this season. Their style of play is different to the Premier League norm, and while they may need to adapt later in for season as teams work them out, right now it’s working terrifically for them and it’s great to see! It’s a good year for the promoted teams to come up, with so many of the so-called bigger clubs in a time of rebuilding. For all his credit (which is fully deserved) I do think Wilder’s comments about his keeper were a little harsh yesterday. Yes it was a mistake, but keeper’s make occasionally and it costs goals (see Lloris yesterday for example), but this guy has already, and will no doubt in the future, save them way more points and is going to be a busy player!
  8. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    Me too - just sent a request.
  9. Mario Kart Tour (mobile)

    Well it looks like the game is out! It’s appeared on my main screen, although I can’t get past the title screen as it is undergoing”maintenance” until 8am. I guess I’ll be playing it then!
  10. AI: The Somnium Files

    Well I’m completely sold! Three of my favourite series are Ace Attorney, Zero Escape and Ghost Trick. The feedback so far is that it plays a little like all three, so sounds fantastic to me! 😃
  11. Nintendo Direct 04/09/2019, 11 pm

    Sakurai’s Smash Bros direct was excellent, and he comes across so humble & genuine. His comment on buying an X-Box was great and makes sense for him to be repaying the favour given by Microsoft in allowing Banjo in the game. It was also nice to hear him praising Grant Kirkhope, who has provided so many memorable video game tunes in the past. While it’ll be an enormous amount of work, I’m so glad they’ve decided to give us more DLC characters. There are still so many popular characters that could be added (plus Waluigi 😁) that this will certainly help. Finally, how good is Sakurai at using two controllers at once!?? That ‘two-player’ Sandbag demo was ridiculous!
  12. 22 weeks!? Wow! A huge thanks to @Glen-i and everyone else for all the work (& arguments!) that went into producing the whole series of articles. It was a lot of fun to be part of and to read other people’s opinions. Great stuff! 😃👍🏻
  13. Oops, thanks for the reminder! All done now!
  14. Football Season 2019-20

    Thanks @Space I’ve added myself to the growing League list. I was already planning on using the fact that I’d be a week behind as an excuse, but @Eenuh‘s performance last season has ruined that excuse already! 😂 An exciting start to the Premiership yesterday with plenty of goals, and of course plenty of VAR discussion already! The best news of course was Exeter continuing their winning streak (2 matches...) in League 2! Maybe this year will be our year!
  15. Ghostbusters

    It seems a strange choice for a remaster, but I’m not complaining. I didn’t play the originals, but from what I read it wasn’t a bad game and, like already mentioned, the story was effectively another film. They did incredibly well to get so many of the original cast involved, and I’m looking forward to seeing the finished product come October!
