    The joys of repetitive battle themes

    Wow. This is just the most succinct review I've ever experienced. Always pondered picking this up. But no more. Just awful.

    The Mummy Demastered - WayForward's Excellent Mummyvania

    Jumped back into this over the last couple of days after giving up on the difficulty spike that was the sewer alligator/dragon boss. The patch helps a ton. Hit one more difficulty spike with the scarab (just tedious to preserve health long enough to kill it.). But was otherwise plane sailing. Post patch it is a solid B of a game. Really enjoyed it. Didn’t outstay it’s welcome. But can’t defend it against any of the complaints in the thread. Best game of a film I never want to watch though.

    What reasons are left for keeping hold of a Wii U?

    It’s a Wii with a hdmi port. That alone makes it a must own.

    Super Mario Maker 2 - June 2019

    The 3DS single player campaign is the most under rated Mario game ever made. It is absolutely fantastic. I so hope they do so again for the sequel.
  5. The defence that ‘legitimate journalism is rare, so paid advertisements that sidestep all the rules out in place to protect consumers (especially children) is fine’ is ridiculous.
  6. Except any pretence on impartiality or honesty or integrity.

    Nintendo 3DS

    Just watched that video, its astonishing how much better the DS version looks.
  8. This is so spot on. Using the UI was fun. [select unit] THUNK THUNK THUNK - [hmmm, commit?] - COMMIT! That and Advance Wars was the definition of 'less is more'. Few, units, but perfect units. I worry they kept delaying this to throw more in, not polish what was there. But yeah, I'll get it to.

    Epic trying to beat Steam the wrong way?

    Ignoring the weirdness of defending a monopoly (thats core business is a shop, that it continues to let stagnate so that it can work on it's games - which are actually set dressing around gambling establishments), it is worth thinking about why this is bothering people and I think it's an issue that is going to become increasing important. Think of console gamers that have gone all physical or all digital. Think of the vast swathe of the population that either a) just watch netflix (or prime, whatever) b) grumble when they have to back out between apps. Imagine if you booted a switch/PS4 UI and browsed your collection of games, then had to back out and boot a different UI to browse your other collection of games. UI is a hugely important factor in how people enjoy stuff. If I was Microsoft, I would be building a front end to overlap as many stores as possible. Thats how you kill steam. By removing friction,

    Desert island discs - One game per system

    For these threads to work, you can't just publish a list. You gotta say why. Your full selection doesn't just have to be in a single post either. I'll start. As a kid eyeing up xmas I wanted a mega drive and sonic, but knew that was an unrealistic dream from a family of our means. A second hand spectrum seemed just about possible, and as I would be playing it on a tiny B&W TV, the reduced colour palette was no big deal. But what did I find xmas morning? A master system plus, AND a colour tv. I was in heaven. So my first pic would have to be: Sonic the hedgehog - Master System Plus. A game I argued was 'just as good' as my richer friends' blast processing versions, but with the power of hindsight I now realise it was better. Slower? Yep. But more thoughtful, with spectacular platforming and just a joy to play. I still think a huge reason for Sonics stagnation, was it's pursuit of what people thought it was, rather than what it actually was. The SMS version, put the game first and sonic (and speed) second. And for that reason it has stood the test of time. It still pains me so many of the emulated versions today are the inferior game gear version. I play it through every couple of years, and I still remember my heart beating as the credits rolled the very first time I beat a game.

    2DS is the only system they are still making right?

    Desert island discs - One game per system

    So what’s the bible and complete works of Shakespeare in this version? I would say Tetris and the complete works of (2D?) Mario.

    This is a fantastic thought experiment. Could be a podcast.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    I always find this sort of thing super interesting. When we want to convince some one to buy the game it should run at this fast rate of new content. But once you've bought it, it should run at this lower rate. I bet the game would be much, much more fun if it ran at the demo rates. I get that might come at the cost of people not being able to put 100s of hours into it. But I don't want to.

    Hmm, thanks, I'll start it on the big screen,
