    Mortal Kombat 11 | April 23rd 2019

    Ditto on the Towers of Time - didn't see the appeal but now I do a least a few every day. Getting into that top completion percentage is very compulsive. Have a 50/50 win ratio online. Good netkode. Keep forgetting about the defensive meter. Annoying that the rolls are on L2, but the air breakaway on R2, keep confusing myself. Mainly play Cage, Raiden and Sub Zero, and it's so much easier to win with Sub Zero than the other two it's not even funny. The amped slide krushing blow does an insane amount of damage. Loads of fun though. I think it's Netherealm's best game yet. The characters exude such style especially in the intros and outros and it's a beautiful looking game in HDR. All parts of the presentation are wonderful, though Krypt in X I enjoyed way more. The Krypt in this one , outside of the initial exploration which is admittedly quite cool, is a pain in the arse. There's shit everywhere. EVERYWHERE. Most of this stuff is completely and utterly pointless - and don't get me started on those fire breathing spiders that exist only to slow the boring , repetitive, mind numbing process of opening chests with the same animations again and again. If there was actually some meaningful combat outside of the same hammer swing over and over and over and over it could have been quite the neat diversion from the main game. Also it makes me laugh when you break a pot or kill a spider and get 8 koins when the cheapest chest is like 2000. GEE THANKS!

    Declining Sales. WTF Is Going On?

    9-10 years ago I would have bought most games at launch, finished them and trade them in toward the next one. This year I have only bought 3 games : Resident Evil 2, Sekiro, and Mortal Kombat 11. I didn't even rate Sekiro (neg away) and sold it to pay for MK11. I'm 34 years old with a full time job, no kids so get more time than most and yet still I haven't felt the need to buy new games. Resident Evil 2 was so well made and had good replayability and MK11 is currently keeping me really busy. In the interim I'm enjoying classic games on my modded PS Classic, and we had Apex for that multiplayer fix that didn't cost anything. There's just zero reason for me to buy something like Rage 2 now (despite really enjoying the first one) where all it will do is sit on a shelf for a few weeks before I get round to it. Also, it looks just like the recently released Far Cry New Dawn which was a new skin of Far Cry 5 and the latter is just over a year old. Games are getting to identitkit and boring and who has the time to keep playing these similar looking games over and over? Call of Duty i adored 10 years ago but apart from sharing the name the new games in the series look nothing like the ones I loved. So as a boring rapidly-approaching middle age man that still buys physical games exclusively, that's my excuse. I'll be buying Shenmue III next though. The Apex/Fortnite effect can't be understated , they are free, they are on every youtuber's playlist, there's no ps plus cost involved, the barrier to access is incredibly low, it's super mainstream so you can talk to all your friends about it, i'd imagine for most young people the idea of spending time playing something that isn't so popular AND costs money to be just odd. When i was 12 I was buying Sega Saturn magazine and dreaming about importing Metal Slug and any new games I could pay to get my hands on and those kind of days of gaming are long gone. To be fair if I could download a free game on my Saturn that everyone talked about , loved, and constantly had new seemingly never ending content, I doubt I'd have spent much time on alternatives either.

    That YouTube video I posted on the last page will pretty much sort you out. Just remember once you download autobleem, put the unzipped files in the root of your memory stick, as that's where most people go wrong (me included )
  4. Loft find ! Haven't seen or used this for nearly twenty years ! Kind of sad it's 50/60hz modded as it's in lovely condition.
  5. It could do, after all, Sonic 2 was in the initial japanese 10 but in the second wave of US/EU games. Worth noting is the Asia version just got Alien Soldier, so it's that, Outrun 2019 and Sword of Vermillion exclusive to that region at the mo.

    Your views on collecting

    Sold everything in 2012 but since have bought my top 10 games for the dreamcast as the cases and hardware are so nostalgic. DC looks real good over VGA too. The problem I have with collecting now is that there are so many ways to play old systems, especially the modded mini console route as you still get a kick out of using official pads and hardware, but with whole collections of games for peanuts. Compared to paying ebay prices for the originals, which let's face it are going to sit shelved for the majority of the year, It's simply way more convenient and cost effective to emulate old systems. Replacing my old aes games that sold for 50 quid back in 2012 would cost me triple or quadruple now. Too much.

    John Wick 3: Parabellum - May 2019

    Lionsgate's John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum took in a massive $5.9 million from Thursday night previews in 3,000 locations Biggest ever for Lionsgate
  8. Dream last 10 lists then: Rocket Knight Adventures Streets of Rage Revenge of Shinobi Sonic 3 & Knuckles Aladdin Splatterhouse 3 Zero Wing Soleil Musha No fucking chance in hell pick: Robocop vs Terminator
  9. Vectorman is the most bland shite, I never understand why it keeps getting ported. Terrible game. Alex Kidd on MD is a load of crap compared to Miracle World. Still not a terrible list but definitely worse than the previous 10.

    John Wick 3: Parabellum - May 2019

    Just got back from an advance screening of this Fucking incredible I'm still buzzing! The best pure action movie this decade for me, bumping Fury Road from the top. Theres so many awesome shots and sequences and the ending is a shocker. Well done Keanu and Co

    PlayStation Classic

    You can use autobleem which uses the stock emulator which is perfectly adequate but if you put on retroarch you can instead use the pcsx core which is nigh on perfect. I've played Mega Cd games more on mine than Ps1. Finished the wonderful Terminator side scroller and a few hours into Snatcher now. Worth the 40quid alone. NeoGeo is emulated great as well, was playing KoF 2002 this morning and Matrimelee for the first time. Great you can plug in a USB arcade stick for the full effect.

    Ridiculous unjustified retro listings

    40 bids though !
  14. Just realised Cameron hasn't worked with Arnold for 25 years. We are old. Avatar is fucking shite. It feels like something the member berries in South Park would take the piss out of. Nobody ever talks about, there's no merch, it doesn't occupy any headspace in the average nerd.
