  1. Oh man, remember c.1987-1992 when magazines would give games ‘awards’ which publishers would adorn the packaging of games with? It was like an early version of achievements – but for software publishers.
  2. I did think of a concept like that too, like a Switch version of the PS Vita TV, but in practice I can’t see Nintendo devaluing one of their hardware formats like that. Just isn’t their MO.
  3. So Lexis is like a clone of Wordtris, I guess?
  4. That Prince of Persia conversion is a minor technical marvel.
  5. Started a new village a couple of weeks ago; I’ll be AFN and working, but feel free to visit and perhaps drop random stuff outside my house. Buy whatever you want from the shops, and you’re welcome to pick the trees. 48Q2T edit: connection crashed. Will try again laters.
  6. Honest opinion time... As a former Amiga owner, I basically regard Turrican & Turrican 2 on a similar level as Shadow of the Beast or Ubisoft’s Unreal, as in great tech demos for the stock Amiga hardware, but they aren’t great games at all, certainly by modern standards. Yes, T&T2 look, sound and play much better than Shadow of the Beast, but they aren’t gameplay classics. If you own the 16-bit consoles, or have console emulators (or MAME) on your PC or Mac, you’ve already got access to far better games from the platform-shooter genre. IMO.
  7. True! I guess there is some precedent, after all. Still a baffling release decision by Nintendo, mind.
  8. Time-limiting the Mario compilation is one of the least Nintendo things that Nintendo have done in recent history. I mean, you can still (just about) buy brand new copies of Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land, games both nine years ago. You normally don’t have to be in any sort of rush to buy first-party Nintendo games. They’ve gone weird.
  9. Oh, I definitely agree with you on this, and you’ve basically described what my brain was thinking when I rewatched the film three years ago. It all felt rather hollow, like it was designed to be a big spectacle blockbuster without the substance being of sufficient quality. (Keaton was a great Batman. Shame his suit had the bright yellow parts that makes it look a bit Halloween costume, mind. Bale was superb as well. I think Affleck was completely miscast.)
  10. Nice. Have fond memories a of FF Legend III.
  11. The Link’s Awakening remake or the Yoshi’s Woolly World sequel – which one is best of the two, going by general forum consensus? I enjoyed Link’s Awakening on the GB and GBC, and Woolly World on the Wii U (the latter in two player mode).
