  1. That’s good to know then. I might try and grab that as I think I saw it for around a fiver or so when I checked yesterday briefly on google.
  2. Yeah it was Uo Poko. I spent a while playing it but it would always start from the first level of you failed once. It’s a good game though.
  3. I don’t think I’ve actually played Magical Drop before but I have always enjoyed the Puzzle Bobbles series in the past. There was a game I came across (Jap) in Bury Arcade Club over a year back which sucked me in and has another similar feel but the balls are stacked from the bottom and fired up on the left using a spring, a bit like a pinball machine.
  4. So is this a better port of the game than the supposedly laggy Anthology ports that came out on the PS4 too? I was considering getting this but wasn’t too sure what system to go for. Part of me considered the SNES mini make emulation route as I don’t really want to use my laptop. Haven’t tried emulation of anything other than SNES games though, however I did install Hackchi to add extra roms. Annoyingly I’m quite busy away all week.
  5. @fat flatulent git I think it was enjoyable at the beginning because more people got involved but people tended to have different opinions on how games should be chosen, leading to it being difficult to please everyone. It was good though when the threads got quite active and plenty of members were actively playing and adding their own experience. availability of the said game in question was a limiting factor for some people, so the more obscure stuff or larger CD sized games were less accessible, especially if you didn’t use emulation as an option. There have a been a few times I’ve wondered whether it should come back but I don’t want to be relied on to start up each thread. I think I was doing it on a set date each month last time and would spend a couple of hours sorting out the thread with images of all the options. My favourite moment was probably when we did E-Swat because I’d never played that properly before and persevered to learn how to finish it on the first two difficulties, overcoming all the learning curves it threw at me. I’d be up for playing something new if you wanted to set up a continuation thread.
  6. @Qazimod That’s quite interesting as I never knew that, and while it’s actually ok, there’s something off about the way it just continues on and on in a one way story with no visiting towns or even interacting with NPCs, aside from the occasional line that auto plays when walking past one. There’s literally nothing else in the game so far other than the story and fighting progression in a single direction. I am getting used to the combat system though which is quite unique and tactical at times. I’m about 30 hours in now and possibly close to finishing chapter 7. Basically where Hope finally loses his shit with Snow which precludes a flying orange boss battle.
  7. I worryingly approached chapter 6 with caution because of this 😂. It didn’t turn out to be much hassle though but I’m going to assume you’re referring to the two beasts in the wooded area that have bits of bark coming out of them and Sahz and Vanille creep past them? Currently on Chapter 7 where Snow has returned into the scene with Shiva in that arena with PSICOM, Hope and Lightning.
  8. I might fire this up again and try out that Castlevania 1 mode that’s built into the main game from the title screen.
  9. Are you up to FFXIII yet? I’ve just very recently started it for the first time as XII was the last one I went through a few years ago. It’s alright so far but I’m really really not feeling this endless corridor gameplay. 15 hours in and it’s just a constant dungeon. @Sprite Machine
  10. I must be tired at this time, while scrolling through the pages, I saw this thread title and read it as “50 Shades of games”.
  11. Doppelgänger used in Dark Saviour on the Sega Saturn. Im sure there are others but right now I can’t think.
  12. Spade Invaders You’re a corpse in a grave looking for a bit of peace, but pesky grave diggers are making their way to your abode. Shoot them to get rid of them before they reach you.
  13. I’m still making my way through the series anyway. Haven’t even gotten to 6 yet let alone the modern remakes of 2 and 3.
