    The 3DS Resurrection thread

    Darn. I don't have that much interest in the missions, but I loved just relaxing with the free flight in the Nintendo 64 game. Oh well.

    The 3DS Resurrection thread

    Haven't played it for years, but is there any way to do the free flight without a time limit?
  3. I like buying retro games. I don't very often buy games that I have no intention of playing though. Notable exceptions are the Dai Gyaten Saiban games, and the Miles Edgeworth sequel, which only got Japanese releases, and some Mario games on which I have double or treble dipped.

    Gaming tropes that need to go away

    Wooden (looking) doors that can't be opened. I'm armed the teeth, but I have to look around for a particular window to get into this house, rather than just shooting up or blowing up the front door, because it wasn't designed to be an entrance.

    Imagine a "passing on history via the oral tradition" minigame.

    Code Vein - Prepare to Dine

    Is this ever going to be released?
  7. Yep. All three games are in the trophy list, even though I've never even loaded the sequels.
  8. I have the Spyro trilogy installed, but I've only played the first one. When I get home, I'll have a look and see if the other two appear in my trophy list.
  9. I think there's definitely no need to have both Ashes and DB if you are going to do the career mode. It's such a time commitment. I'm into the fifth year of my player's career, having put about two real years into it, and apparently the career goes on for 20 game years, so it will last me until the end of this generation, it seems. I'd say I play about ten matches a week, then I leave it for a couple of weeks before playing again. The batting on Ashes does feel quite different, though, even if it looks similar to that of DB. The few times I've tried it, I couldn't put bat on ball at all. Might have to wallow my pride and do the tutorials or net practice. I've finally figured out that I can stop myself from having to bowl in DB. Even though I'm captain, I've been given the ball a few times, which is especially annoying when the other time are need about 40 from six overs, then the ball is thrown to non-bowling opening batsman me. I then get whacked all over the ground. But the d-pad (can't remember which direction) it is brings up the bowler selection menu, and you can choose someone to bowl instead of you. The other game I'm still playing is International Super Cricket on SNES (actually I'm playing on a Hyperkin Supaboy S, which is particularly good now that you can put it to 4:3. It's great fun as long as you're batting. There's nothing like bowling at the computer to make gaming seem like a waste of time. Fortunately, you can put all the fielders on the off side, and then bowl to off side, and the opposition will offer up catches to be bowled out for about ten (on the default skill level anyway). I'd love a cricket game on the Switch.
  10. This looks gorgeous, and is going to be fantastic. I hope it gets a physical release.

    Final Fantasy VII (SEVEN)

    Oh, I see. Ta.
  12. My wife sometimes turns a console on and loads the game in the disk drive assuming it's still the game she left in there. She quits as soon as she realises, but her trophy and achievement lists have a few games with no trophies / achievements as a result. Similarly, I sometimes load up a game without realising until I try to continue my saved game that I've signed into her profile. So that might partially explain the mystery.

    Oi. Anyway, how long do you reckon the board will stay patient with him? I assume he has more breathing space than Sarri, but if there's no improvement next season, their trigger finger might get itchy.

    Super Mario Maker 2 - June 2019

    The first was brilliant. This looks even better. Day 1. Can't wait.

    Final Fantasy VII (SEVEN)

    Did 7 get a physical remake, or is it download only?
