  1. General Retro Discussion

    Just tried this on my Pocket and I love it! Will try on Game Boy Player or MiSTer at some point too.
  2. Fitness Boxing

    Is there a good reason to get this if I already have the second one?
  3. Gex Trilogy

    I love these games. I really hope we get the Leslie Philips and Danny John-Jules voice tracks though. In a perfect world we'd able to chose between those UK tracks and the american Dana Gould ones. So strange to see that logo at the end because I thought they had sold Gex along with all the other IP.
  4. Clock Tower

    Excited for this! Though it's strange that it's based on the SNES original and not the enhanced port to the PlayStation.
  5. 3DS and Wii U eShop purchases to end March 2023

    That's so strange it made you wait the full 24 hours, including DST, while I only had to wait around an hour. I think buying Wii games is fairly safe as I can't see us getting any GameCube or Wii games as part of NSO (despite us seeing that it's possible with the Mario collection). Some final VC purchases: Wild Gunman Shining Force Sword of Hajya - I still want the Game Gear Micro that includes this but it's super unlikely I'll be getting it any time soon Devil's Crush Trip World I'm really confused why they need to shut the stores down. I get shutting it down on device because of all the SSL/TLS issues, it's why it's not accepted payment for ages. But the web store is all secure, why can't I just buy things there and redownload on device? It's basically what I've been doing the past couple of days anyways. Goodbye 3DS and Wii U, you've been great.
  6. 3DS and Wii U eShop purchases to end March 2023

    That's a good list, @Julius. A lot of cross over with what I've bought or already had purchased. Incuding Catrap which I thought would only be on my list I had to trim my list hard too, it still managed to get into the hundreds across the UK and Japanese eShops but I've been planning for this since it was announced. I decided to focus on games that were native to the 3DS/DSi or Wii U, that either would be prohibitly expensive to buy physical or just unavailable. Next was the last Fire Emblem DLC that I needed. The remainder was used on VC games that I thought would not show up on NSO or are much more expensive to buy physically. Just a heads up, the cool down period isn't actually 24 hours! I hit that limit and panicked but I waited an hour or so and I was able to add more. Here's what my list ended up being 3DS UK THE DENPA MEN: They Came By Wave - 3DS Exclusive THE ''DENPA'' MEN 2: Beyond the Waves - 3DS Exclusive THE ''DENPA'' MEN 3 The Rise of Digitoll - 3DS Exclusive THE STARSHIP DAMREY - 3DS Exclusive, part of Guild02 Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars - Comes with Wii U version LIBERATION MAIDEN - 3DS Exclusive, part of Guild01 Hydroventure™: Spin Cycle - 3DS Exclusive Langrisser Re:Incarnation -TENSEI- - 3DS Exclusive Dedede’s Drum Dash Deluxe - 3DS Exclusive BUGS vs. TANKS!™ - 3DS Exclusive, part of Guild02 Aero Porter - 3DS Exclusive, part of Guild01 3D Classics TwinBee - 3DS Exclusive and the only 3D Classics I didn't already have 3D Classics Urban Champion - 3DS Exclusive and the only 3D Classics I didn't already have ATTACK OF THE FRIDAY MONSTERS!

  7. 3DS and Wii U eShop purchases to end March 2023

    Today should be the last eShop update day. I wonder if it'll bring anything interesting. Update: Last Thursday store update has happened. If you like word searches you'll be happy. If not, there's nothing worth picking up.
  8. Virtual Reality

    Yes we're very much going to be in the 'exclusives are king' world for a while with VR but I do hope it pushes the whole industry to keep making quality titles. I really enjoyed your write up on the Pico4, if I wasn't already in the Quest ecosystem I would have been all over it. Talking of Resident Evil, I'm still really happy with how polished the VR mods are at https://github.com/praydog/REFramework.
  9. Virtual Reality

    I got a PSVR2 and I’m a bit underwhelmed. Caveat is that I only have Horizon Call of the Mountain and Gran Turismo. And for full disclosure here is the list of VR headsets I own: HTC Vive, PSVR, Valve Index, Quest 2 and now PSVR2. The screens are nice. No screen door effect and excellent colours. I like the rubber gasket, it makes a nice seal. Overall as massive improvement over the original PSVR… but that is a very old piece of hardware (and one that didn’t really win me over at the time). Now for the reasons I’m underwhelmed: Do I feel like Horizon is a massive jump over anything I’ve played on the Quest 2? Not really, no. Visually it is of course. But not to the point where it makes the Quest 2 look outdated. And the gameplay is basically on par. Unfortunately there are no racing sims on the Quest 2 and there are none as big for PCVR, so Gran Turismo is a really nice experience. I seem to have to reset the IPD every time I play it and I think this is contributing to how queasy it’s making me feel when playing. That and the movement system in Horizon is a bit naff. Can use analogue stick or arm swinging. I’ve only ever experienced VR sickness with the original PSVR before. I’m just glad I can put the PS5 on standby. Because the PSVR2 is tethered I have to rearrange the room where the PS5 is so it’s not just plug and play for me. This applies to all tethered VR headsets. It is more plug and play than any PCVR headset which I find always takes a few goes to make it all get recognised by Steam. Weirdly I find the controls really strange. I found it a bit awkward to put the them on with the headset on. It’s difficult to tell their orientation when you can’t see them. I’m hoping a third party comes out with wrist straps so they can stay attached to your hand (like the Valve Index Controllers). It’s worth noting that, unlike the PSVR, you can not watch 3D Blu-rays on the headset. Ultimately I think the Quest 2 has spoiled me. The wireless nature of it just works for me and seems to be the biggest consideration I have for VR.
  10. 3DS and Wii U eShop purchases to end March 2023

    Lots of good choices there, @Jonnas
  11. Metroid Prime Remastered

    My second favourite game of all time (first is Super Metroid!) and I'm struggling to justify picking this up as I've already played it to death. I will get it at some point though. The GameCube game was already beautiful and really pushed the boundaries of the hardware. Probably only second to the Factor 5 games in terms of that. That's not me putting the remaster down because I really like the new texture work and models! Plus native widescreen! Fix the doors though please, Nintendo. Gah I need it.
  12. 3DS and Wii U eShop purchases to end March 2023

    The Nintendo Switch Online news has changed my buying list a bit. The addition of Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance to Nintendo Switch Online now means all the likely suspects for release on there have been drastically lowered on the priority list to pick up on the VC.
  13. Choo chooo! I reckon Advance Wars will get a release date.
  14. Xbox Series S | X Console Discussion

    I think this is the most suitable place for this. You have less than 24 hours to pick up these games from the Xbox 360 Marketplace before they're gone.

  15. Isn't this one of those N64 games with a hidden one player - two controller mode which plays more like modern FPS? Yeah it is. It's a shame this can't be activated with the two Joycons.
