    Pokemon Go

    Similar naming convention here... My squad for fb and not fb. If it's not fb Anna I get through the ttars then the other squad go in. Caught a fire move one last night, 96% though

    Xenoblade Chronicles 2

    Physical copy of Torna shipped yesterday Not been this excited for a new game since the Switch launched, in fact I might even be more excited for it. Typically I'm meeting a friend tonight and it's Pokemon Go Community day tomorrow.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Dual Analogue. Dual Shock was over a year later.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    You've clearly never used my broadband...! I don't think so. I'm in the backwards compatibility is a non-issue camp, but then I keep my old consoles. I think this shows more that people sell or bin old stuff, and then regret it, or their rose-tinted view thinks buying it again for old times sake is a good plan, nostalgic views have a lot to answer for.

    Or just ask XboxUK how many people they think own 500+ Xbox and 360 games to allow them to play them "totally for free"

    I *think* (but I might be wrong) MGS had an analogue option, but didn't require it. The requirement would be for Dual Analogue rather than Dual Shock too, I don't think any game specifically required rumble. Plenty of games (such as RRT4) only used rumble from the Dual Shock, though supported analogue steering via the neGcon. From what I recall, almost all Playstation games allowed digital controls, I think Ape Escape required it though, so that won't be on there, possibly Spyro for camera controls? When you look back on it, the Playstation was pretty crap for analogue controls, due to it not being a packed in controller, but also having a weird variety of analogue controls, the negcon, analogue flight sticks, dual analogue and then shock... As I said before, a real shame they haven't included analogue controllers and used the negcon support. Gran Turismo, Ridge Racer, Destruction Derby etc. and probably a lot more supported it...

    I skipped the Xbox One, and have an S. The S is fucking massive, how can the original one be that much bigger!!

    I suspect badly... i suspect this is also part of the reason they've gone straight to RRT4 and not one of the earlier games - perhaps the amount of content too. Similarly with Tekken 3 rather than 1, keeping away from the earlier titles. From memory, there were 9 different series of the Playstation (before the PsOne), with sub-versions in between. They kept changing lasers, adding and removing different ports etc. I don't think so either. It's going to make the Mini Nintendo's look tiny by comparison. I don't think 45% is big enough to include a disc drive (and I doubt that they would anyway) but hopefully they disc lid pops up so we can wedge a spring in there, and obviously, sit it upside down to replicate the disc spindle being worn for the proper Playstation experience. RRT4 was analogue with Jog/neg con, whatever they were called. A real shame they didn't give it a dual shock and add analogue support imo. Playing old 3D games with polygons popping up everywhere is one thing, playing them without analogue controls is a whole other thing. I have a feeling this thing might well show us how badly early 3D has aged, I don't expect the same charm of the 2 Nintendo variants. Seems more than coincidental that we have Sony Classic console in the year that we don't have a Nintendo one.

    Nintendo Switch

    I barely touched the Virtual Console, probably as I have a decent collection of old Nintendo stuff, and probably also as I spent my time playing newer stuff, and indeed bought the classic consoles. On that note, the classic consoles seemed a proper bargain to me too, for 18 quid a year, I welcome this approach and it makes them look expensive. Nice selection of titles, though perhaps the balance of 20 up front +3 a month isn't quite in the right place. Might have been better doing 8 initially +4 a month. I wonder if they will milk the NES for a year and do SNES the next year etc.

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    Weekend? Season more like. I wonder if Merc think that's the best way though, Kimi is quick but rarely passes Bottas, and they don't have the old arguments / battles they had with Rosberg. Things might change next year though if LeClerc is quick next year, in the constructers if nothing else. Ocon... I don't think I've seen much from him so far. Yes, he probably should have a drive next year over say, Sirotkin, Stroll, but I think I'd prefer to see fresh talent.

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    Not much of a concern. Bottas can't get close to a Renault..

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    I'd imagine he's just stretching the wrong tyres that Ferrari have him

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    Sirotkin should have got more that 5 seconds for that, it not being an accident doesn't mean it wasn't dangerous.
  15. How come retro in gaming means old, where as retro in every other sense (including the definition!) means new imitating old ?
