    Harry Potter is 20 years old

    One of my fondest memories from when I was an English teacher in Japan was taking on the Harry Potter group on Saturday afternoons. Each week, an hour of reading a chapter from the book, naturally 'inspired' by the film actors, followed by an hour of discussion and activities relating to the chapter. It was something of a hit with the middle-aged housewives, I can tell you.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    A bit obscure, but every time Arthur says "You're a good boy" to his horse it sounds like Bob Mortimer's Mrs Peter Beardsley impression from Athletico Mince.

    Detective Pikachu movie

    This looks incredible. Not sure what they had to threaten Ken Watanabe with to get him in it, but I'm glad they did.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    You can play those which have been 'fixed' to work for the PSTV. But I would recommend that you just get a Vita if you want to play Vita games. They pop up in the Trading folder from time to time for very reasonable prices bundled with memory cards.

    Games that get under your skin

    SOMA is a great call, and the perfect example of how videogames can address tough philosophical concepts in a new and engaging way. Nobody has mentioned TLOU yet, and it certainly warrants being here. The closing cutscene of Winter is possibly my most emotional experience from a videogame. Several years after playing it in an afternoon, I still have warm fuzzy feelings when I recall To The Moon as well. So many feels in a simple 16-bit style.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 - Screenshots

    Happy to contribute if we can keep it spoiler-free.

    Nintendo 64 Mini

    I'll probably get one if announced. But given the success of the Switch I would have thought there would be logic in releasing it as a Switch cartridge with USB N64 controllers. At least alongside the mini console, as an alternative. Cheaper (and probably quicker)for Nintendo to produce, and more practical for customers who already have a Switch under their TV.

    The Walking Dead!

    I stopped watching about a year ago (I think), after this episode. This thread acts as a warning not to start watching it again, whilst also being more entertaining than the show.

    Which console should be released as a 'mini' next?

    Right you are - list corrected
  10. Seeing as the PlayStation Classic is due for release this Christmas, following the releases of the NES, Mega Drive, and SNES Classics, I guess we will see one of these being unveiled each year in September for simple nostalgic Christmas presents. Which console of those listed is most deserving of a 'mini' treatment? To avoid making the list too long, I have taken the main TV-based consoles from the 16- to 32-bit gens (plus the N64) that have not yet had a proper re-release. Not gone for the Dreamcast or anything later, as these are (IMO) not yet old enough to be retro enough to justify a re-release, and the hardware and ROM sizes would likely be prohibitive to selling the machines at a £80-ish price point. Also, which games should be included?

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    I can see why Sony have done this. It will no doubt sell well at Christmas and the games, despite their age, are perfectly reasonable on the whole. But I can not get excited about them. The ones that I enjoyed are mostly available for peanuts in PSN sales, and others will have aged badly. Unlike pixel-based games of the 16-bit era, which still have charm in a HD setup, the early 3D games of the mid-90s will simply look crude and dull.

    The Man in the High Castle

    The third season is good - it pulls the show back into a coherent and joined up story line after the previous season's meandering, and sets things up for a more focused fourth season.

    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    Just the same as the UK store. If you already make purchases through the UK store with your credit card then the same one will work on the SA and Russian stores.

    Perfect Films

    Excellent call on Grave of the Fireflies. Bonus points for inspiring the most inappropriate merchandising opportunity ever:

    Perfect Films

    By this rationale Michael Bay probably thinks that he has created some of the most perfect movies ever filmed, whereas on the other end of the scale Woody Allen was very critical of Annie Hall.
