  1. Does this help at all? https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/11893/solved-update-issue In particular this line: Another way is to remove the pipplware file from /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ folder.
  2. I finished this yesterday, and actually it is rather good. The atmosphere is superb and the Lovecraft elements, including the design of the enemies, is spot on. The sense of exploration is really well done, and it shares something with Guacamelee that I liked, in that there's some clever environmental puzzles that require you to use the combat techniques you're given to traverse the environments. The hordes are a challenge especially later on, but you're given the tools to deal with them, you just have to be careful not to get cornered. I would give it four Shub Nigguraths out of five. Oh and I played most of it in handheld mode, but the TV definitely lets you see what's going on a bit more clearly. The screen does get crowded when dozens of enemies show up.
  3. If you ever wondered what that would sound like "synthed" up and accompanied by a recording of Jim Morrison reading his own poetry, then wonder no more!
  4. It's a really good JRPG, but be warned; it's really long. Part 1 took me about 80 hours, and I'm still playing Part 2 after about 20.
  5. I've been playing it after picking it up a few days ago. It's got a great atmosphere and beautiful graphics, but the game play is probably fairly average. However I'm a sucker for Metroidvanias and souls games and it shares elements with both, so I'm really liking it.
  6. Without cutscenes we'd never have had this: So are cutscenes necessary? Fuck, Yes!

    The Jazz Thread

    I'd also recommend picking up a copy of the Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD. It's incredibly comprehensive and has a mini-review of thousands of records. It has a list of about 100 must have jazz records (marked with a crown) and you won't go far wrong using that as a starting point. It also has a brilliant artist index so if you decide you really like Joe Henderson (which you will decide obviously) you can find not just his records, but the records he played on as a sideman.
  8. I still think it's the best videogame soundtrack I've heard. I listen to it pretty regularly. Some of the music is genuinely haunting.
  9. Wait is the CD worth money? I think it gave it to a charity shop! (That tells you that it's not very good in my mind I suppose)
  10. In games like Limbo I think it's partially a parallel to the use of child protagonists in horror fiction, e.g. Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes or Stephen King's IT. But also I think there are connections to fairy stories, Grimm's Fairy Tales and Hans Christian Anderson's Snow Queen for example. Personally I think the experience of Limbo would have been hugely different if the character had been an adult, or a satsuma, or a wily anthropomorphized fox. A child lost alone in the woods is the start of a terrifying story, a bloke stood in the woods is just some bloke in the woods.
  11. Man I'd forgotten how good this was. I don't get excited for much when it comes to TV, but I can't wait for this.
  12. I don't think this is right. You'll just be able to buy them on your regular account once your PS Plus subscription has lapsed.
  13. I have never heard of either of these games, so a good month for me from that perspective. Still seems weird there only being two games though.
