    Revealing info from Trophies and Achievements

    The issue is that even though most people don't complete games if you can't advertise it as a 60 hour epic everyone says it's shit and not worth £40. But they're quite happy to pay £40 for a 60 hour game but then only ever play 20 minutes of it. Devs really can't win.

    Telltale Games closing

    For me the biggest issue with episodic gaming is it never lived up to its name. It was meant to be like a TV series, where as long as people kept watching the content kept coming. If people didn't then it'd either end or the ending brought forward. Instead what we got was a game split into five episodes and either sold to us a bit at a time or in one go and having to wait. Episodic gaming was meant to stop a company like this disappearing as you wouldn't waste money and resources on episodes that were not profitable. Its a shame really as clearly they knew this was coming but didn't react to avoiding it the right way. I'm guessing they were relying on a big contract to save them and put all their eggs in that basket.

    Yoku's Island Express

    Yeah as you approach time will slow and then hold one of the triggers to suck it. The slugs and the leash are a couple of things that needed a bit of tweaking to feel better. Id love to see a sequel with different sized balls or types (which I thought was being hinted at near the start of the game), and maybe a new move or two like a spin dash to help you get around areas. The table sections could have also used a few more tricks and maybe need a look at sonic spin all and nick some of the better ideas. It really was just a nice game with a couple of tiny rough edges that need a bit of smoothing and then it'd have been up there with Nintendo classics like treasure tracker and box boy.

    Playmaji's Polymega

    Over at Reset Era there's a lot of issues popping up, like changes to the hardware (won't be hybrid emulation they promised), Saturn video is the arcade game being shown, $125 to ship to Europe and other promises such as everdrives no longer working which have been backtracked. Do some research before you commit.

    Tarting around with the 360

    How easy is it to RGH mod an xbox 360? Any recommendations on guides or where to get equipment?

    Two Point Hospital

    The problem with games like this that try to take an old title that's long over due for a sequel or remake is in bringing it up to modern standards it loses something the original had. Thankfully this doesnt have that problem at all. It feels pretty much like Theme Hospital if the first level is anything to go by which is no bad thing. Theres very little else to say, if you like Theme Hospital then this feels like more of the same. I do have one minor complaint, i wish the colour pallet was a bit more vibrant, the original Theme Hospital was almost garish at times but that worked in it's favour to give a brighter feel to the game and also helped characters really stand out, wheres in two point its a little hard to work out whos a doctor and whos a patient on quick glance. It's also a bit of a shame that the best diseases were already used up in Theme Hospital so the ones that are similar here come across a bit weaker joke wise and visually. But beyond those nit picks you can't say no to grabbing this at £14.
  8. There's a cheat to enable 60fps. Well I say enable but it's still very much up and down and removes lots of trackside detail to do it. Its a shame the Dreamcast port had issues and the PC version was a last minute port to get something out.

    Does it look a bit like this? https://mobile.twitter.com/dark1x/status/1031903575398440960

    Shenmue 1&2

    Went into the bar with the pool table earlier and the non japanese guys at the table spoke bits of japanese and bits of english. I think playing this game in Japanese is actually more interesting than in English due to these little bits of authenticity i guess you could say that are missing in English, as well as seeing the English translation doesn't always quite match what is being said.

    Shenmue 1&2

    Mine arrived today and it's Shenmue alright! Now I love Shenmue and my first hour of this doesn't change that. However I wish they could have spent a bit of time and money on a couple of things, namely textures and audio. With the increase in resolution it's now super obvious when things don't look quite as nice. Some polygon seams here and there but there's a lot of very low resolution textures and early on a lot of plant leaves that are just square blocks. Not asking for brand new hi res textures everywhere, just clean up a few of the dodgy ones and the important ones like lan di's clothing which doesn't look as impressive in HD. The audio, the music and sounds all sound as they used to. But the voices, and I don't mean the acting but the voice quality sounds a lot worse. It was fine on what dreamcast but now it sounds like when connecting a Walkman to a high end stereo system. The files may be the same but the quality of speakers means you hear every little issue. Lots of voice clips have a crack or pop at the end of them and the bit rate is terrible. Would have been nice to have everything rerecorded with better acting or at least higher quality as it's jarring against the rest of the higher quality audio. Finally the new controls are not as good as I was expecting. Tank controls are still there and still feel as clunky as ever. I'm sure they have their charm and were based on the dreamcast dpad but being able to walk in the direction you were pushing would have helped a lot. Besides that though it's Shenmue as you remember it which is no bad thing. I would love to know how far along it was on partnernet on the Xbox when that was leaked though.

    Shenmue 1&2

    Few people on other forums have had this, quick restart fixes it and some are hoping a new patch on Tuesday will fix it but that patch may be the one that's already live.

    I've got a Saurian component RGB scart cable I don't really need anymore. What's it worth and is it something anyone is looking for? I know it can also be unmodded back into a component cable too but that's probably best left for someone else to tackle.
  14. Well of course you would be, you need the work after all.

    Shenmue 1&2

    Tom really doesn't work in the English translation. I'm sure I read years ago In the Japanese version he has broken Japanese with bits of English, being a foreigner and all. Yet in the English version this either is removed or doesn't come across so just sounds weird.
