  1. Short look at a little known PSP RPG Brave Story New Traveler, which draws from the novel of the same name, quite a big series for Sony in Japan with two very different games released on the PSP and PS2 to go with the film release in 2006. Only the PSP title got an English release and even then it didn't make it here to Europe. My best advice, is to look at it as a long term project that will take years, as long as you have steady grow you'll be fine. I need to do more in depth video myself as they are by far the most popular videos on the channel, but the take they take slows everything else up. I've nearly finished a major Saturn video, but I've now decided to re-record the footage with the OSSC to look better, for a more professional edge, so got that to look forward to soon. All the channels that do daily videos have teams behind them unless they are doing very short quick fire ones. It can be an uphill battle, but one that if you keep at it you will slow keep growing support.
  2. Cause it was the last third party game released in PAL, got a pretty limited printing. Came out after Burning Rangers, Shining Force III and just before Deep Fear release. Virgin had claim it was supposed to release in Christmas 1997, but there games were always heavily delayed. Late July/August 1998 was its final release date. Also these days ebay sellers are jokers and just jack up the price for no reason to make as much ££££ as they can. I learn that all Saturn games are quite cheap in Portugal and Spain as the system was very popular over there, however some of them have cotton onto this and sell games on UK ebay at x4 times the price. Street Fighter Collection is PAL optimised so the intros don't match the music at 60Hz, but that's about the only PAL fix they did. Alpha 2 gold is the best title in the Alpha series, so I can see why it is so sort after.
  3. Digging out the PS2 again as we look at the DecAthlete Collection part of the Sega Ages 2500 series, sadly it's one of the 3D Ages titles and is a bit lackluster. Bout time we did a turkey too, this is the terrible Battle Stations on Sega Saturn:
  4. Anyone here used an OSSC over Twitch, I noticed it doesn't seem to like PAL resolutions and refused to stream yesterday, had to change scaler as a result, didn't like 525i video one bit. I'm doing some test stream on Twitch at the moment to see how it compares to YouTube would well come the feedback as I play around with it, seeing which is the better service out of Twitch and YouTube. https://www.twitch.tv/randomised_gaming I'll be trying to play the DecAthlete Collection on PS2, some feed back on audio would be helpful
  5. Based on the chatter here I have created a thread directly for Dark Quest II: https://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/311371-dark-quest-ii-a-spiritual-successor-to-the-heroquest-video-games-on-pc-ps4-xone-nsw-ios/
  6. Had quite a bit of chatter about this after I put a post on this in indie recommendation thread seems their is enough demand for it so here goes. Dark Quest II is the follow up to the Xbox 360 Indie title. This one draws even more from the video games of HeroQuest than the previous title. They also got Barry Leitch who did the music in the original HeroQuest video game, to do the music. Really enjoy it great tactical RPG, that gets the feel of HeroQuest spot on, one Amiga fans will really enjoyed, if you played the original games. There are six characters in total Barbarian, Wizard, Dwarf, Archer, Knight & Dark Monk. Each have their own ability and fighting style. You level up by collecting magic potions in each dungeon Out now on PC (Includes a level editor in this version and online multiplayer) also on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch (These include a couch co-op mode, instead of online and a level editor). Had trouble finding the maps at first. Log into steam, select Dark Quest II > Community Hub > Workshop (TAB) > Browse (drop down tab) > items I've download at 10 maps so far and they are all pretty good, I found the editor itself to be a bit tricky to use, but lots of help threads in the steam forum on it. Someone has already done their take on the HeroQuest Campaign. I suspect at some point someone will do a direct copy and paste of all the missions from HeroQuest. One major gameplay change in the console versions compared to the the PC release. In the console versions you heal, up at the end of the dungeon when you return to town. In the PC version, you have to stay at the inn and heal up, else you keep the damage taken from the previous quest. This make the PC version slightly harder and requires a bit more gold management, when you first start out.  I been playing it both on PC and PS4 and have enjoyed both version, here's my first impression take on it: Where to get it: Steam Nintendo Switch PS4 Xbox One The original game is also available on steam as well, however the second game is much better than the original.
  7. Someone has already done there own take on the levels from HeroQuest, in the map stages. I've download quite a few. There good fun, but not a huge selection at present. Had trouble finding the maps at first. Log into steam, select Dark Quest II > Community Hub > Workshop (TAB) > Browse (drop down tab) > items This will list all the maps available at current, level editor isn't that easy to use, but once you get the hang of it, you can make some great stages. Trouble is would people want lots of indie game threads and would they view threads for each game? I'd happily create one for Dark Quest II if people wanted it as the game need more love.
  8. Yeah, as milko said we have a indie thread, but it's not for recommended games. One game that I have been playing these past few weeks is Dark Quest II, which is the follow up to the Xbox 360 Indie title. This one draws even more from the video games of HeroQuest than the previous title. They also got Barry Leitch who did the music in the original HeroQuest video game, to do the music. Out now on PC (Includes a level editor in this version and online multiplayer) also on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch (These include a couch co-op mode, instead of online and a level editor). Really enjoy it great tactical RPG, that gets the feel of HeroQuest spot on, one Amiga fans will really enjoyed, if you played the original games. Gets my recommended vote. My First Impression video: If you just want a pure gameplay video, then watch this one:
  9. Here's one for the obscure list an FMV adventure game on Saturn Strahl based on an Unreleased Data East arcade game:
  10. Seems very doubtful due to all the rights issue. What's concerning is the death rate of Amiga Floppies disks now and the hardware, a lot of game still haven't been correctly backed up and emulated or ROMed yet. It's very worrying for the future of the platform, I got a rare chance to play a Amiga CD32 the other day and playing a game like Banshee felt just as good as any modern shumps. There were some great game on the system when it was in the right hands.
  11. As wiper said sometimes it doesn't work on the first post and you have to quit out and try again, I just copy and pasted your link and it worked this time, but the forum has a bit of a mind of its own with links. For some reason the embedding doesn't always work when you log in I've noticed, can be really annoying. Played through all three Rockman X's on SNES these past few weeks. One of my all time fave songs is the password theme music, from the original:
  12. What mode you using? Line X5 is cropped in PAL but Line X2 should be fine, haven't tested it with a PAL PS1 console. I have captured a PAL PS1 game on PS2 without issue game was Overboard video here, this was Line X2 mode:
  13. Did a playthrough of the standard course on Cyber Speedway / Gran Chaser, a slightly odd racer on Saturn, that I think if they had spent more time polishing it, it could have been a solid racer.
  14. Rule number 1 of games design included a great opening theme is the starting intro to keep your players watching, this is the opening intro theme from Megaman X2. which I finally picked up a NTSC copy recently.
  15. After of looks at some PlayStation games this week, first off we have the now delisted Gunhound EX for PSP and PC, the PSP retail version is the only way to own it now, if you didn't buy it on Steam: Next up one of the lesser known Psygnosis PS1 games Overboard! or Shipwecked! to our North American friends:
