    Nah, I've never played it, or owned it. I just know a little about it. Though if I do get a Super NT... that would probably change! Haven't bothered buying cartridges for years because playing original SNES consoles on a modern display isn't really a great experience (and I've been spoiled by the Virtual Console with its myriad of extra features and goodies too!) In the absence of an ongoing VC service though, and the introduction of the Super NT? Original carts have become a much more interesting prospect now for those games that never got VC releases! (and I'd love to try out some of the randomiser stuff and the cool mods with a flash cart like the SD2SNES!)

    Vortex is a really interesting little game. You can clearly see how a lot of the tech would eventually find its way into Starfox 2 (especially with the transforming mech/Arwing!).. Even more interesting when you consider that Starfox 2's engine would end up becoming the basis for both Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time (and of course every subsequent Nintendo EAD/EPD release from there). BTW, I still need to get myself a Super NT and a Mega SG... And the N64 version of RE2! Always wanted to try it! It's such a bonkers mad port! That's super cool! Do you guys have any stripped down game consoles by any chance? I bet that the kids would love to see a stripped down Game Boy, or a stripped down Sega Saturn with its monstrous architecture and board layout!

    It'll definitely beat Pokemon, no question. Only question here is, by how much?
  4. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 ( Switch Exclusive )

    So a Marvel game, published by Nintendo and exclusive to a Nintendo console, developed by Koei-Tecmo and Team Ninja? Is this Bizzaro World?
  5. Well that was ruddy bloody hilarious! i like how my team consistently did better the worse that I did individually Team games are wicked fun!

    I honestly have no idea why anyone would get upset about the Tales of Vesperia 60FPS in battles/30FPS out of battles thing on Switch. That's exactly how it was in the original version It's not like Tales of Symphonia HD, where they used the inferior PS2 version as a base; where the gameplay was notably worse than the original GCN version. Here it's a match for the original PS3/360 versions of the game. And there's basically no notable action gameplay outside of battles at all. You literally just walk around and talk to people, that's it. It doesn't even have puzzles to solve in the dungeons like in Symphonia! The part that actually really needs to be in 60FPS (the battles), IS in 60FPS. It is literally getting upset over nothing

    Worst bit about repro carts is that they're usually made by cannibalizing another game's cartridge to do so... Not only are they pulling a fast one on you, but they're also destroying other game carts to do that too; even worse if it's a cart that uses a special chip (like the Super FX or SA1 chip), because there aren't that many of them out there! At the end of the day, it is what it is, a bootleg. There's no actual "reproduction" going on here with them, it's just straight up bootlegging (and they're making tons of money off of selling someone else's work too! Even with fan-translations and hacks; the original creator of the hack isn't getting any of that money!). They are designed to trick people into buying fakes (and they have absolutely completely ruined the market for second hand DS games now!) Doesn't sit right with me at all, for all of these reasons. Something like the Super NT, or the SD2SNES cart, is absolutely amazing! These "reproduction" carts though? They can sod right off.

    Switch is completely region free. You can even access foreign region eShop stores on any console.
  10. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled 21st June 2019

    Well @Hero-of-Time, I guess we now know why it wasn’t included on the Playstation Mini
  11. I should be IN!!this time!
  12. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night (Wii U)

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/iga/bloodstained-ritual-of-the-night/posts/2356781 Wayforward has now joined in on this game as a co-developer! Well that explains why they've been so quiet for so long! Congrats to everyone there! No doubt it's a real dream gig for you all!

    I can vouch for this too. I've got that same controller too and it's really very solid! The analog stick in particular is really great and does a great job of replicating the feel of the original N64 analog stick (without grinding itself to dust like the official one!).
  14. Sega Ages (Summer M2)

    Nice!! I didn’t even think of that! That’s a pretty killer USP for this version!
  15. Sega Ages (Summer M2)

    The emulation is far better? The SEGA AGES line isn't limited to just Mega Drive games? The games come with loads of extra features and gameplay enhancements? There are loads of reasons why we want these!
