  1. Planescape Torment: Deionarra's Theme. What can change the nature of a man?
  2. I loved the NGPC and had a handful of consoles and a pretty much complete Clamshell collection. Still remember the excitement and anticipation of going into HMV Oxford Street to buy it on launch day. Sold everything off about a decade ago for not very much. One of my biggest gaming regrets. Not so much for the money (OK, that hurts a bit), but I would really like to be able to fire it up every now and again and bask in the nostalgia. Emulation just doesn't cut it for the NGPC somehow. So many classics in such a limited portfolio of games. Faselei, Metal Slug1/2 and Neo
  3. 100%. This is a very clear continuation of the classic old school western RPG genre.The original Wasteland. Fallout 1 and 2. Gold Box AD&D. Baldurs Gate, Icewind Dale, Planescape Torment. Sticking with the things that make these games so fondly remembered but updating the UI and adding in all of the quality of life improvements that we have come to expect from modern games. Backed it in the original crowdfunding campaign and so glad that I did. Love it.
  4. Yeah, last act. You do get a very clear prompt for the point of no return though.
  5. I was 12 in 1985. At home - Elite on the Spectrum blew my mind. I think it still does a bit. In the arcade - My local leisure centre had Pac-Land and Kung-Fu Master. I will still happily play both today.
  6. Some very broad advice: Ironclad - Cycling strength (e.g. Demon Form) or block (e.g. Barricade + Entrench) works well. Corruption + Dead Branch is pretty much an instant win. Silent - Poison (as many Catalysts as you can get) or Shiv decks work well. Defect - More options here but lightning or frost based decks work well. Core Surge + Biased Cognition is a great combo. Watcher - Bouncing between Calm and Wrath works well. Calm to soak damage and then switching to Wrath at the right time for big damage. General advice - Try to improve
  7. Slay the Spire A rogue like deck builder but that doesn't do it justice. It is the most perfectly balanced game I have ever played (perhaps the best game I have ever played). I have sunk over 400 hours into this (on PC and Switch) and when it comes out on mobile (imminent) I will buy it for the third time. Perfection. FTL The prequel to Into the Breach. Just as good. No flab on this either.
  8. This is a painful thread. These are the ones that immediately come to mind: SNES + 50 or so mint, boxed games GBA Micro (Famicom anniversary edition) + around 50 mint, boxed games Neo Geo Pocket (2 consoles and an almost complete UK collection of mint, boxed games) Snatcher (Mega CD) Panzer Dragoon Saga Dreamcast (30 or so mint, boxed games). This one really hurts - I loved the Dreamcast. I still have my Gamecube + games but not much else. I am such an idiot.
  9. I can vouch for this too - I imported Darius Cozmic Collection (wanted the physical version) and it's brilliant.
  10. Played through the first two investigations (2/3 of the game?) and I'm enjoying this. It's not a full fat XCOM (very little in terms of a strategy layer) but the individual missions scratch the itch and the 'breach' mechanic is great.
  11. Planescape: Torment What can change the nature of a man?
  12. He's great. I have him matched up with RTTF Allan in midfield and they mop up pretty much everything.
  13. I am a long term StS addict so have a free Steam copy up for grabs from the latest Humble Bundle - link below: https://www.humblebundle.com/gift?key=D3YGpvKxcsMAzz4k Enjoy, and post if you claim it!
  14. System Shock 2. Even now, some 20 years after the initial release it still looms large in my consciousness. The experience was so visceral that it has been burned into my brain in some way - to the point that I even have dreams about it from time to time (creeping through the MedSci block with only a wrench for self defence mostly).
  15. I had an email from Nintendo customer service today. They will be sending me the Majora cover plate which I ordered but didn't arrive and I can keep the Triforce cover plate as a gesture of good faith. Hopefully they will be doing the same for anyone else affected by the mix-up.
