  1. Apparently some games were even designed with the scan lines in mind! Maybe those ones look better with them on.
  2. A little bit. And I found it took some adjustment to get really comfy which was a pain if you got up to get a drink and then had to mess with it again. It's not ideal. Armchair is the way to go.
  3. One of the things I hate most about current gamer/youtuber/streamer culture is the god awful "gamer chairs" they all sit on that look like they beyond in a tacky spaceship. @Jamie John I had a Bazaar Bag for a while which was really comfy: https://www.beanbagbazaar.co.uk/bazaar-bags.html Bit of a pain though, because it actually takes up more space than a chair. Now I just sit on the couch. We've also got a few armchairs from Next Home which are very comfy and I can sit on them for ages. They often do sales so you can get a decent amount off. I think a medium backed armchair is probably your best bet. Get a foot rest and you'll be sorted.
  4. I woke up and played an hour of LttP this morning. Totally lost track of the time. @Alex W. I really like the CRT filter, but totally agree, it overdoes it ever so slightly. I wish there was something between that and 4:3 which is just a tad too clean: Even the pixel perfect below it is alright. I really can't pick which I like most, but once I start playing I mostly forget about it, anyway. It's a bit weird coming from a perspective of having played Link Between Worlds more than I've played LttP and finding the map and locations feel familiar because of doing things that way around. Maybe it explains why LBW never did much for me.
  5. It doesn’t seem like Nintendo to let this sort of performance stuff get to release, which makes me wonder how fixable it is.
  6. I remember hearing that these games were designed with the knowledge that the pixels were not going to be square when they were actually displayed. Is that not the case?
  7. I don’t think I’ve ever completed Super Metroid. Got stuck or something, but was having a whale of a time with it back on Wii. At the moment I’m playing LttP. I don’t think I ever made it out of the castle the first time I tried to play it, but I just made it to Kakariko really like what I’ve seen so far. I love the rewind feature. I want to see what the fuss is all all out but I don’t think dying in a basement full of bloody snakes is integral to what made the game so special so am happy to cheese my way through bits like that. I’m sure some of the Link’s Awakening hype is helping, too. Am I right in thinking 4:3 is how it’s supposed to be played, rather than pixel perfect?
  8. I haven’t read a magazine in years but @dreamylittledream pointed out if you have a local library you can probably get a PressReader account for free which gives you access to thousands of magazines. It’s really clever. I don’t have an iPad at the moment but even on my iPhone it basically reflows the text and screenshots. Looking forward to reading some of the editorials.
  9. Just finished File 10. Is 11 a long one? I think on repeat runs I’ll probably miss out a lot of the side quests.
  10. I love the form factor of the lite. If it supported docked mode I’d have one in an instant. Anyway, this looks wonderful but I think I’m going to hold off for a little while as I could do without the expenditure and have plenty to play and not much time to play it in. I think I’ll save it for my next holiday game. I’m always trying to find something to play when I go away and having this would be amazing.
  11. Just looked him up. “Captain Communism” feels like a missed opportunity.
  12. Who's the bearded guy? Looks a bit stupid having a mask which doesn't cover what is almost certainly your most distinguishing feature.
  13. Fair enough. You can stay out of sight usually and keep trying to loop them. They can’t see your legion so there’s no issue there.
  14. You know you can just bind up every enemy with your chain, right?
  15. I always got the impression that Rorie is a very high functioning alcoholic.
