  1. After reading the op I guess it’s minish cap! I’m not massively attached to anything I own to be honest. I do love my launch Japanese Dreamcast with that cool orange box, and all the capcom fighting games I have. That’s probably the closest I have to a collection of anything I think.
  2. New year, and i’m Gonna try and focus on racing games even more! And the first thing is this awesome rom hack of Mario kart featuring all new tracks, and a bunch of the world warriors.
  3. I can only recall a couple, as I didn't really live anywhere that had decent arcades. The first was during a school trip to London to visit the national gallery. Me and a friend hung around near the entrance till the teachers had disappeared, and then promptly left for a visit to trocadero. this was mainly for street fighter 2 and I can't really remember any other games that were there as street fighter was my life back then. What I do remember was the Alien War experience thing, which was awesome, as I had no idea such a thing existed before hand. We got a few suspicious looks at the end of the day, but got away with it fine. Then onto University in Hatfield, we all used to hang out in a bar in the shopping centre, which had a small arcade next to it. I used to duck out every so often for a quick go on Time Crisis. I remember the first time I finished it being so shaky with nerves, it was exhausting! But after that I could pretty much do it every time. So whenever I was a bit bored of the noise/people I would just nip next door for a fifteen minute run through that. It was a pretty good little arcade, but I basically never touched anything else in there which seems like a waste now.
  4. I think the best thing about retro games is discovering new(old) stuff that you never realised existed, and for me that's most often arcade games, that I can now suddenly emulate and learn to play and appreciate without the limits of pocket money, location, or even just intimidation. So many of them are absolutely brilliant, but you'd never notice if you only chucked a couple of credits at them. Thinking of a cut off for retro seems pretty impossible to me. So many new games these days seems to be exactly the same as stuff from the PS2/Xbox generation to me... just a bit shinier. I guess I think of retro as more a gameplay style that isn't really being made anymore (in the mainstream at least) like the arcade experience of a simple idea drawn out to create a whole game (as opposed to modern long story driven stuff), or a visual style perhaps. So perhaps its somewhere between PS1 and 2, maybe after the dreamcast as others have said?
  5. Instantly popping into my head is 3rd strike tetris super mario world ridge racer a fifth one is escaping me at the moment. Maybe I only need 4!?
  6. Add me to the list of idiots* that quite liked the first half hour or so best. I enjoyed the idea that neo thought he was crazy, and all the commentary about the originals being misunderstood or misrepresented, and essentially being forced into making a sequel that wasn’t needed.... but my god did they bang that nail into your head a lot more than necessary! When they actually got to the matrix bits it was awful. There’s nothing that’s going to be remembered like the originals. Learning Kung-fu, the lobby scene, highway chase, burley brawl, smith and neo super human rain fight thing. The subtext of the originals was great, but like it or not, it’s the action that made them truly awesome. And some of this was awful. Now I kinda hope there will be a reboot in some way. This was a totally unnecessary movie, so we might as well have some more, they can’t be worse than this. Instead of a movie with a message, we got a message without a movie. * the after credits bit soured me on a lot of the developer bits I enjoyed earlier.
  7. Gonna chuck out a few super short videos over Christmas that I have left over from throughout the year. Including this silly thing.
  8. it would have been quite easy to rig it... but weirdly as it went on I felt a bit bad using drivers who were doing well, as I didn't want to influence it too much!
  9. The decisions are just insane, especially so late. they basically decided max was the champ with that late safety car in/unlaping thing. max is good, but such a whiny kid. And Horner is just as bad.
  10. Round 23 - Abu Dhabi - THE END Yay, I can do the proper track for the finale! And it's another pretty short one too. Another great outing on the PSP. Really like this one a lot. It was quite easy with the KERS button, so I had to wack it up to hard difficulty to get a decent race where I wasn't instantly in the lead. This race turned out okay I think. Obviously with this year I had to use the Brawn and Jenson Button. I've also discovered how to swop textures in PSP games, so there's a few changes to the sponsors of this race, which was fun to do as well. No real changes to the championship points really. And I guess the eventual winner was obvious from the start. If anybody want to check out the points breakdown for the entire season, my big spreadsheet is here... hopefully that link works. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17wgviFusOdp7Win8Lg8rawihDrtB5sU3oZHknXnwv2k/edit?usp=sharing And that's the end! It was quite a lot of work, so thanks to everybody that watched some of these. Hope you liked them.
  11. Round 22 - Malaysia Obviously Saudi Arabia is another circuit that isn't in any games, so I'm bringing Malaysia back. Thankfully this race is super short, at only two laps, which makes is nice and easy to do the commentary for. This is a great little game. I really love these simple old fashioned racers, although it did take me a few attempts to figure it out. Leaving the car setup as default saw me being left behind massively. But after a little tweak, I soon got the hang of it... although you still have to be very careful not to tag any other cars, as you slow down a lot more than they do! Results. Only one more race to go, and it will be the proper Abu Dhabi.
  12. golf has to be Everybody's Golf, which version is the question. I think PS3 is probably my favourite, but they are all brilliant. I still love Super Tennis on the SNES which is pretty much perfect. obviously the japanese version for the swears. Smash Tennis on the SNES is also great with the multitap for four players, I presume anna kournikova is a sequel
  13. I don't think I'm going to do a whole season like this again next year, its been a lot more work than I thought. Although I do have an idea for something maybe in the future, which would probably be more! I do want to go back and play some of these arcade games again, and do the courses I missed, so there might be F1 games still on those weekends. And I'm now pretty sure I'm going to try and do almost only racing games on my channel instead of a big mish mash of stuff, which is probably good for the youtube side of things.

    i'm not watching that unless they actually do get shot.
  15. I know nothing about league of legends, but it looks pretty nice. I’m slightly turned off by the easy input stuff, although I don’t know why as I’m rubbish anyway, so it’s probably good for me! looking forward to seeing more of it, but presumably it’s not going to be out for ages.
  16. Round 21 - South Africa I can't do Qatar, so back by popular demand is South Africa. Its a great circuit too. Another very long race, so I decided to cut a few laps like the channel 4 highlights. Great game this one, which I hadn't played before. I wasn't expecting much from it, so was pleasantly surprised. Very twitchy on the steering, but lots of fun once you get used to it. Results
  17. is that a dig? people who can watch it legitimately enjoy it, people who watch it other ways are just hate watching? maybe I'm reading into it
  18. Round 20 - Brazil Brazil is in every F1 game ever I think, so it's finally time for some N64, and there's quite a few to choose from. I think this one might be the best? Its a long one this, the shortest you can do is 10%, so its a big 7 laps! The main problem with this is the steering, which is very weird. You kinda rotate around the outside edge of the analogue stick like a steering wheel, and occasionally it just seems to drop the input. So I spent most of my time with this game on edge wondering when it was going to happen next. Apart from that its pretty good. Results
  19. that Italy race up there was in duckstation, but I haven't ever really messed around with the settings. partly because my laptop is rubbish, but mainly as I quite like keeping it looking like a real playstation. I'm not too fond of seeing games on youtube that look way better than they ever did originally. I assume you can make all the polygons look super clean and crisp though.
  20. Round 19 - Mexico We're in the home stretch now. Got all the last races recorded, just needing to add the Murray Walker commentary now. This is a game I always wanted back when it was new. It always looked cool in magazines, now I've played it I think I dodged a bullet. It is incredibly difficult. I didn't really want to use so many SNES games, but this is the best version I think. The PC Engine version doesn't have the map which makes it incredibly hard, and the MegaDrive one has a mini map/radar type thing which isn't much use either. I wonder how much I would have persevered if I had ever got hold of it back in the day? Results
  21. Round 18 - USA! So this is definitely not retro! I got this in a sale at the beginning of the year with the intention of using it for this series, then decided it was too modern. Unfortunately I got to this stage of the season and realised USA isn't in a many games as I expected... even the indy circuit. So I went back to this, and then noticed it has Russia in it too, so I could have had the proper circuit a few races ago after all. I'm not really much a fan of this to be honest. The first thing that annoys me is the presentation, it seems to take forever to just get into a race compared to most of the stuff I've been playing lately. And it's just a bit too realistic I think. I spent most of this small race trying to keep my position rather than zooming around like you do in more retro/arcade like games. It was interesting to see how things have changed, but I just dont think its as much fun though. Results.
  22. maybe its because i dont have proper twitter (or i dont understand how it works), but when i click on a link people post here like that trailer, i expect to see loads of hate filled comments, but its always just people being super excited. what i do have is instagram... and pretty much anything discovery related gets tons of negative feedback, even jokey memes. so its definitely not just confined to this place.
  23. Kapp’n’s the best thing about all this!

    Squid Game

    Just finished off the last episode. It’s largely great. but the few bad parts are really bad. I’m actually a bit disappointed to hear people talk about a second series. It could have been an awesome one and done show.
  25. largely deep space nine all the way. picard and sisko are pretty equal though... i could go either way depending on the day and great to see voyager's doctor getting so many, best thing in that show.
