    Antstream - It's Netflix for Games!

    Then it wouldn't be a streaming service

    Clearly wouldn't work! Which is why we have been working with some very clever and very experienced streaming service engineers. We won't be launching a laggy service, that would be silly.

    That's a secret.

    Yup, although we hope that the fact the creators will be getting paid, plus the fact we are adding a lot of bespoke content (challenges, achievements, online leaderboards etc) will get some of the hardcore crowd on board too.

    That's the plan - don't think we can specify exact platforms yet but there should be various ways of doing this through consoles, set top boxes, TV OS's etc. The brilliant thing is you will be able to start playing a game of Dizzy on your phone/tablet on the train on your way to work, then carry on from where you left off on your office PC in your lunch break (or while you are supposed to be working, we won't tell anyone), then pick it up again on your big screen TV through a set-top box when you get home, then back onto the mobile/tablet in bed before you drop off. You can literally play retro games non-stop, every day, for the rest of your life.

    Jon and myself won't be at Gamescom in person sadly but you will bump into our lovely team and in particular say hello to Danica our community manager! And if you get a hands-on with our platform don't forget to post your impressions here, please! We should be at Play Expo if anyone is thinking of heading there?

    Oh yes. We've got some big names on board already, and are having discussions with some HUGE names (pretty much as big as they get tbh). That pretty much means something like an ICO or other unconventional fundraising is off the table for the moment. But in the future it could be an option. But yeah, lets talk on our private channels!

    The Watchtower - A thread for all comics

    Just saw there is a Bloodborne comic released recently - any one read it and is it any good? I heard not-so-good things about the Dark Souls comics...
  10. The episode where they rave about the quality of the graphics in The Pawn, and then display them while playing some grand sounding music track, is pretty funny in the cold, hard light of 2018.

    Gender Diversity / Politics in games (was Tropes Vs. Women)

    This is complete nonsense. The quality of journalism, the range of content and everything about the games media today is light years better than anything we had in the 80s or 90s* and the nostalgia/rose-tinted specs are the only things telling you otherwise. *Except Digitiser
  12. Ah yeah, I remembered that ... No physical item though?
  13. Is there an item in this that gives infinite return to bonfires with souls intact? Live an infinite use Homeward Bone? I know there is in 2 and 3 but can't remember if/what does it in DS1.

    MAME pointers / advice / guidance

    I gave up using MAME front ends years ago because they just didn't bloody work properly most of the time, generally just failing with no explanation and a useless error message that didn't explain anything. I've documented my trials and tribulations extensively on this forum. If its just going to be running on a PC, I would just use Mame64 with the default GUI, which really does everything you would want. It's not pretty and it doesn't let you show off all your banner images and marquees. But it gives you a simple list of the games you have installed, and lets you launch them with a single click, so functionality wise it's fine. As far as downloading a load of ROMs goes I guess I can't give links at that's against the rules I think, but, as a hint, just use the popular p2p method of downloading which you mentioned in your OP and search for MAME full sets along with the version number of Mame64 which you are using. To minimise headaches, stick with the default folder structure that Mame64 gives you on your PC, and put your ROMs into the default /ROMS folder, rather than trying to put them somewhere else and set up paths etc. Which Doesn't seem to work for me, ever.
  15. Really want to do a miraculous lighting-hurling holy dude for my 2nd remaster play through. Only build I haven't really tried. Sadly I feel I will end up doing a big-stick bashy man again as it's just so much fun and I haven't done it since my first ever DS1 play through.
