    What type of retro fan are you?

    I had all of my favourite consoles with around 20-30 of the best games for each before selling up and moving to Singapore. I only buy games I'm going to play either repeatedly or with friends. I'm not a collector at all, despite my wife thinking I'm a total hoarder (she's one of them minimalist types...). Now we're back in Europe I need it all back again! I have only the AES, Saturn and Mega Drive left to reclaim (in that order) with the PSone, PS2, Wii, SFC and PCE already hooked up. I might look into a Dreamcast and an N64 after that's all sorted to really finish the job, but to be honest I could easily drop the DC in exchange for some kind of JAMMA Supergun that has a USB drive attached to it. I'm not really interested in getting the games back when Ever Drives, flash carts and USB HDDs pull off a perfect job. Although I do need my PVM - I could never go back to a consumer CRT after spoiling myself with that thing. Even going from the BVM to the PVM (800TVL down to 600TVL) after the power board died was a bit of a step-down. No more fried eyeballs. I don't really get much time to play because of work these days. I just feel comfortable knowing I can get up and play whatever if I get the urge. Right now I've a major itch with no way of being able to play FFS, SamSho2 or KoF'98 in a genuine fashion. I'm really looking forward to the AES.

    The Saturn Appreciation Thread

    I've got the Saturn and the MegaDrive on my roadmap for 2020. I need to secure an AES this year before the prices go up and the condition of the consoles go down. I should never have sold up in the first place.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    It's ridiculous just how many of my casual gamer friends have pumped around 300hrs a piece into this game. I've only managed 140 myself, but I need to go back to it at some point as I'm only three beasts in.

    XBOX gamepass and Xbox app coming to switch?

    Don't make me think those thoughts...

    Devil May Cry 5

    I could really be doing with a PC demo about now. FFS. Oh well, it's only two weeks away.

    The 3DS Resurrection thread

    Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call - Has this been mentioned yet? An amazing music/rhythm game which satisfies those Final Fantasy nostalgic urges perfectly. I blame this game for me not getting around to the various replays I keep telling myself I'm going to do one day. There's a ton of DLC to go with it, mind. I think it's all worth it.

    The 3DS Resurrection thread

    Everyone talks a great deal about Ocarina and Majora's being great 3D remasters (because they are) but don't forget that there's also Starfox 64 3D. Starfox 64. Portable. In 3D. Some more 64 remasters would have been grand. Specifically Waverace 64 and F-Zero X. Oh well.

    Final Fantasy VII (SEVEN)

    I'd have liked a 16-bit remake in the style of Octopath, complete with Mode-7 bits for the world map and bike/snowboard. It'd have been out years ago, too.
  11. Thanks. It's already on my wishlist. Budget Cuts is really good! I'm only very early on so I'm hoping it doesn't end too soon. I never usually get on with rogue-likes, but there is something wildly fun about actually ducking behind office furniture and listening out for footsteps to end before taking a peek and making your move.

    The 3DS Resurrection thread

    Super Hang-On. Gyro controls and screen tilt. It's absolutely amazing - feels like rocking left and right on the actual arcade bike. I've just recently acquired a HTC Vive after wanting to jump into VR for years now, but honestly dabbling in VR (even with Vive's almighty room scale) doesn't come close to the sheer joy that I feel each time I look down at a proper 3D game with no glasses on or anything. Fantastic stuff. I can't believe it's coming up eight years old. Easily my platform of choice for this decade.

    The 3DS Resurrection thread

    My GOTY for 2012, despite having to hold the console a slightly weird way when playing.
  14. Anarchy had some amazingly fun online game modes, which I didn't get to play much of because the game went out and died.

    Yoshi's Crafted World - demo out now

    Yep. I've no idea why it's a thing.
