  1. Vostok Inc. Free Switch Demo out now

    Sounds about right for the games industry! Fair play to you for doing your own thing.
  2. Nintendo Switch eShop

    Have you tried putting your Switch right next to your router? The WiFi on my Switch is really slow unless I do this.

    I tried Stardew and gave up rather quickly. This on the other hand has me hooked. Well done @dadrester
  4. SNES Mini

    I don't use mind loads but I've finished SMW on it and am on the last Zelda dungeon. I may try Metroid next. So I think that's been pretty good usage for me. Comparable with my other consoles playtime over the same period.
  5. Disable 'Featured Content' on your PS4!

    Sorrry, I wasn't making an excuse for them. I was positing why some people have the feature turned off and others don't. We use A/B tests often on apps to gauge feedback without pissing everybody off. Looks like I was incorrect anyway if the feature has been around for such a long time.
  6. I had to go down to Novagen so we could add NovaLoad to one of my C64 games. I don't think Paul was there (my memory is bad at the best of times and this will have been late 80s) but I wish I'd met him, I loved Mercenary. There were some real moments of surprise in that game, I can still remember flying the cheese and finding the space station.

    It’s probably an A/B test at Sony. Switch it on for a small percentage of users and monitor feedback before full roll out.
  8. Nintendo Mini Direct (11.01.2018)

    I really liked DKTF but the boss fights were too lengthy so I gave up on it.

    The solutions are mostly fine but it's closer to DotT than Grim Fandango with multiple characters and locations to handle. If you didn't get on with DotT I wouldn't bother as that's the better game and only the HintTron is an improvement on any of the mechanics from the older games.
  10. Nintendo Switch

    I completed it over the Christmas break. I really enjoyed it but then I'm a Point 'n' Click fan. I though it overstayed its welcome a little if I'm honest and was a bit tricky with all the characters/areas being mostly open all at once leading to quite a lot things to remember. The built in HintTron came in handy for the times I was really stuck though and it didn't feel too much like cheating.
  11. Retro Gamer 175 - Premium Issue

    We did the Spectrum version of Hot Rod at Walking Circles. We had the cab as source material. Was a fun game, we ended up playing it quite a bit in Arcade Club at the office party last week.

    It’s a little on the back burner but I hope to get some more done over the holidays. Funnily enough RGCD got in touch about it the other day.

    Shame. And yeah, the C64 version was a Zzap Sizzler http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/displaypage.pl?issue=054&page=019&magazine=zzap

    And SoftAid was excellent, especially for kids with little cash. GumShoe, Star Trader, Kokotoni Wilf, Fred and Gilligan’s Gold all got a good play.

    No problem , I never saw any (and indeed after 30 years in the industry have never seen) a royalty. Also the demo you played was probably the good rugby game out at the same time from Audiogenic. I don’t recall building a demo.
