  1. Day 1 - Title Screen Music. ISS Pro Evolution Soccer 2, PS1.
  2. Does anybody know if the Switch and Wii-U time trial records are comparable?
  3. I don’t remember having any fun at all playing Super Mario Ball - it was super frustrating and difficult. Much prefer a good pinball table that lets you focus on point scoring as opposed to unlocking areas/levels.
  4. I spent some time playing Alien Crush last night. It’s pretty good considering its age. Nice graphics and good music. Solid mechanics and ball movement. The flip screen effect isn’t really an issue unless the ball is quickly bouncing between the top and bottom screens, which isn’t often. Overall though, I’d say it was just a little on the dull side, with only two screens on the main table which don’t really change that much, and I only remember two different bonus rooms - one with a snake like enemy and another with lots of floating enemies to hit - both of which required the same slow and careful manipulation of the ball to succeed.
  5. I don’t really regret selling anything because of its value. I’ve sold some rare stuff, but I don’t miss any of it. I wish I had kept the boxed and complete copy of Zelda 1 for the NES I had in my youth, but only for sentimental reasons. I’m not going to buy myself a replacement.
  6. If I get chance to I will, but like you I have limited free time and a family to consider these days. My vinyl collection gets the least play time, but also the most attention, as it is upstairs in the bedroom with no other distractions. I do sometimes come home from work to an empty house and just sit and listen with a cup of tea, which is nice. But yeah, mostly I listen whilst working, driving, walking, shopping, reading etc. One thing that I used to do a lot as a kid, but never do any more, is listen to music whilst playing videogames on mute.
  7. I much prefer 2D unrealistic pinball titles, rather than the 3D simulations of a real pinball table. Some of my favourites: 1. Kirby's Pinball Land on the Game Boy 2. Jaki Crush on the Super Famicom 3. Necronomicon on the Sega Saturn 4. Devil's Crush on the PCE/MD 5. Sonic Pinball Party on the GBA - the NiGHTS into Dreams table in particular Others I've played: Revenge of the Gator, GB Dragon's Fury, MD Pinball of the Dead, GBA Last Gladiators, Saturn Alien Crush, PCE Akira Psycho Ball, PS2 Battle Pinball, SFC Flipnic, PS2 Metroid Prime Pinball, DS Pokemon Pinball, GBC Super Mario Ball, GBA Neo Golden Logres, Dreamcast I also own Odama, but have never got around to playing it!
  8. Thanks man. there are a couple more there I could have guessed at had points been at stake. XTC, Queen and Zutons purely by the letter of the alphabet!
  9. I played through the demo this week and thought it was really good. I thought the graphics were nice and I enjoyed the simplicity of it all - always having a destination on the map and a note on where you’re heading (can’t recall if that was always displayed under the map or just at certain points). No way I’ll buy it for £50 but if it drops to half or less I might bite. How long is one play through of the story roughly?
  10. Nice work! Here are my answers for the first edition. Barely recognised any of the second edition! Would you mind sharing the answers?

    I wanted to share the news that GUNSHIP have released instrumental versions of both their albums, but we don't appear to have a dedicated thread! Well, now we do. Links to all the streaming services here: https://gunship.ffm.to/instrumentals Buy some of their music from Bandcamp: https://gunshipmusic.bandcamp.com/
  12. Had a couple of good albums on this evening. Area 3 by Khotin is all warm washes of beatless synths. I think it was tracks 4/5 that I liked best. https://heart.bandcamp.com/album/area-3 The Goddess Is Dancing by DK is a little more rhythmic and has a trancey/hypnotic vibe. https://d-k-music.bandcamp.com/album/the-goddess-is-dancing
  13. I was able to stand still and shoot them as they came toward me on the early levels.

    Yacht Rock

    Been listening to this quite a lot recently. I'd say it was more Yacht than Disco, so it goes in here. Gil Silverbird - Fools Paradise (1986) Purchase for $0.99
  15. I generally take stuff to the charity shop if it's worth less than a pound (profit) or if the condition is a bit worse for wear. Next up in my list is About Love by Gladys Knight and The Pips, from 1980. This one was written and produced by Ashford & Simpson and they did some great work. Landlord is a good mid-tempo disco/soul number to start things off. Taste of Bitter Love is the killer track from the LP, but I also have it on 12" (b/w Add It Up). Still Such A Thing is a traditional soul track and pretty average. Get The Love is more uptempo, but again, nothing special. Side 2 starts in much the same fashion as side 1; Add It Up is another good mid-tempo soul track, followed by disco classic Bourgie', Bourgie'. I have the single edit on a CD compilation, a tidy alternative vocal version by John Davis and the Monster Orchestra, as well as the classic original instrumental by Ashford & Simpson themselves. Friendly Persuasion is next (which Breakbot sampled on Easy Fraction from their debut LP) and it's a decent soul number. We Need Hearts closes the album but I lose interest before the track itself has ended. So that's 3 sub-par tracks, 3 good tracks and 2 great tracks which I have elsewhere. I think I might let this one go too and buy the couple of album tracks I do like digitally.
