    Gaming things a younger you would never believe

    A Nintendo handheld that was also a TV-based console in one unit. In one unit. The amount of retro content and compilations on the Switch – not just the Street Fighter, Konami, Sega and SNK compilations, but all the individual games released by Hamster, M2 and others. The Super NES Mini and Mega Drive Mini. Assumed the 16-bit consoles would be swept away and forgotten once the 3D generation and successors because dominant.

    Star Trek Discovery

    Substitute the Klingons with another race (maybe even create a new adversary for the Feds) and yes, it could’ve. The ship designs even look more suited to that timeframe.

    Oh shit, apparently the compilation only has the US versions of the games (e.g. US Life Force, with no Salamander or Japanese Life Force).

    Konami 50th Anniversary Collection

    Parodius compilation next, please Konami...

    Hope the Konami retro shoot ‘em up compilation sells well enough to justify a Parodius compilation in the near future...

    PlayStation 5 - Mark Cerny reveals many details in WIRED exclusive

    Blimey, haven't seen the term "ray tracing" written down since the days of the Amiga.

    I feel the same, TBH. Found it quite a letdown. I wanted to like it, truly did, but there was no spark...

    Angry Video Game Nerd

    The Nerd reviewing Codemasters games? These truly are the end times.
  9. Just watched the we episode... Not going to mention specifics, but after two years it’s been quite a reminder how big a gulf there is between the abilities of th best and worst actors in this series. When some can emote magnificently and others can barely manage dull surprise, it does take you out of the action somewhat. (Also: it was a shame to see one of the more reliable actors phone in his performance this time.)

    Amiga Power’s 27th Birthday

    Someone’s currently crowdfunding an AP tribute album of Amiga music remixes.

    Star Trek Discovery

    Reminds me of the account that the NX-01 Enterprise looked like it did because one of the suits demanded that the creative team recycle the Akira class ship design for the new prequel series.

    The 3DS Resurrection thread

    My sister took her 3DS to Kyoto back in December, and told me that she managed to not get a single Streetpass the entire week, which was a shame. StreetPass was great at its peak. Pointless perhaps, but oddly compulsive – just love the whole concept of having a ‘game’ of sorts built as standard into a piece of games hardware.

    My predictions for season 4 (if they get that far):
