  1. The Wrasslin' thread

    I enjoyed the preshow. Great to see so many wrestlers in the Battle Royale, even if it was a little clustered at times. Nice match with Kip Sabian though! Shame ITV cut the preshow off midway through Cody’s promo! 😬😂 Still, here’s hoping for a great show. I won’t be ordering but I’ll read the results and hopefully feel bad for missing it. Cody vs Dustin and Kenny Omega vs Chris Jericho are my two most anticipated matches. Oh, and when did ITV get the rights over here? I completely missed that announcement!
  2. It played really well considering the hardware it is was on. I never thought anyone would get a playable RTS game on the GBC, but they managed it! The screen size made it a little tough. The large sprites were a good idea, with the downside that you couldn’t see a huge play area at any one time. It’s worth tracking down if you have a GBC though, just to experience it. I tracked down a US-copy back in the day, and while I wouldn’t rate it higher than any of those top 10 games it was good and I’m certainly pleased to have played it.
  3. Super Mario Maker 2 Direct (15/05/19)

    It’ll be interesting to see what they reveal, as the initial trailer showed a lot of new changes / improvements. I know it’s primarily a 15-minute hype video, but let’s see if there is anything new or if they delve deeper into the findings of the Gamexplain videos.
  4. Football Season 2018/19

    Big game for Man City tomorrow night then. Can they hold their nerve? Both them & Liverpool have ridden their luck at times this season, with yesterday just being yet another late late show! Still, it’s incredible just how much better they have been this season then everyone else. Over 20 points between them & they other clubs chasing European places, all of whom are doing everything possible to screw up their chances of qualifying - just crazy! Still, gutted that Exeter missed on a chance to lose in the League 2 Play-Off Final for the 3rd year running by failing to win their final game of the season. Another season we’ve overachieved though!
  5. General Movie Thread

    I wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt, but the trailer was just dreadful. For me, I agree with @Jonas that Jim Carey was the only saving grace. The whole thing just seems like a bad version of “Hop”. The last second of the trailer has at least given me some naive optimistic hope that they’re trolling us and that the majority of the film is actually going to take place in the Green Hill (& other) zones... Interesting that the Director has suggested that, due to such a strong negative reaction, changes will be made to the film before November: https://www.polygon.com/2019/5/2/18527449/sonic-the-hedgehog-movie-design-change-director
  6. Ah the first Nintendo console I actually owned - good times! This may be edited before the deadline, but here are five nominations: ~ Perfect Dark ~ Conker’s Bad Fur Day ~ Banjo-Kazooie ~ Rocket: Robot on Wheels ~ Mario Party 2
  7. Mega Drive Mini (19th September 2019)

    It sounds as though they’re finally getting it right. I’m going to wait though. I’ve already seen Sega release multiple devices designed to play Mega Drive games and reviews have not been particularly favourable. Walking in my local town centre and one store is even advertising two different Mega Drive Mini-style devices by Sega, both containing different games, with no reason why one should be chosen over the other except for game choice.
  8. Wow, like others have said, just picking 5 games to nominate is tough! This may be edited before the deadline but here goes: Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Final Fantasy VI Super Mario RPG Super Bomberman 2
  9. Ok, I’m not sure what I’ve just walked into... but here are my nominations anyway: Donkey Kong Final Fantasy Adventure Pokémon Red/Blue/Yellow Mole Mania Donkey Kong Land 2
  10. I always enjoy these types of lists, and discussing some of my favourite past games. Here are my 5: Micro Machines The Legend of Zelda Mega Man 2 (sorry @Ronnie😁) Super Mario Bros. 3 Duck Tales
  11. The Google Console

    Rumours have been rife for a long time about a Cloud-based console from Google. It’s certainly one to keep an eye on, and while I don’t expect it to have the quality of games that Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft have, it will have the financial backing of Google behind it. That kind of financial muscle was missing from some of the other competitors in the console market previously so it’s worth being wary of what they’re going to be offering and how much it could potentially affect Nintendo’s share of the market.
  12. Nintendo Labo

    Wow that’s not how I saw Nintendo announcing their return to the VR market! I like the idea of a VR-headset that’s cheaper than the competitors, but with Labo still being quite niche along the announcement coming via a tweet without a video suggests that even Nintendo don’t see this as being a big seller. I can’t see developers making many games with this in mind, so it will be interesting to see what Labo creations can be made by users, as this is the only way I can really see this being promoted. I am happy for Nintendo to prove me wrong.
  13. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    That’s great to hear for you. It makes such a difference having a gym within walking distance and it’s good to see Niantic still being proactive in adding new ones.
  14. The Disney Thread

    With Frozen 2 coming this year, on paper with the sequels/live action remakes this is an amazing year for Disney films. So much hype, I really hope it lives up to it!
  15. The Wrasslin' thread

    I’m really pleased the reviews are mainly positive for this, and I’m trying to find a way to get to see it. Paige has had a really interesting story, and with the sadness of her having to cut her in-ring career short, I’m especially pleased that this has also given WWE an excuse to keep her and give her continued TV exposure. Speaking of interesting stories with female wrestlers, I’m enjoying the (non-PG) Twitter war between Becky Lynch & Ronda Rowsey. It’s still somehow surely got to be your WrestleMania main event!
