  1. For now, and I'll enjoy it while it lasts. But Microsoft are spending money to acquire customers and the price will increase significantly once it leaves this phase. Gamepass is also a disruption attempt at the current model for gaming. Nintendo in particular are potentially vulnerable though the amount of exclusive content might save them. And I don't think it is anywhere near as easy to replicate as Netflix. If Microsoft wind up with an effective monopoly, they'll abuse it.
  2. Stripping away the bullshit, down to basics.
  3. Starting this now mainly to let people know that you can download a demo for ‘New Football Game’ (yep, it’s called that). It’s an online performance test so it might be difficult to get a game even, which is why I thought I’d mention it here.
  4. I dunno if anyone comes into this sub forum anymore but just in case, who’s up for some next gen games? I’m on XSX. I can’t be arsed with leagues or anything but will happily play some games now and then against people who are willing to have fun and not take things super seriously.
  5. Couldn’t find a thread. What’s the consensus? I’m in the process of making an album right now and like to seek out and listen to pop when doing so. Last time was over ten years ago and I listened to early Madonna and Scissor Sisters and Gwen Stefani. It’s where the interesting ideas with regard to production are. I kept having stuff recommended on YouTube as her brother does a lot of production interviews and I’d seen bits before. I quite like it. She’s definitely doing something fairly original and it’s actually not far off what I try to do in terms of little trippy electro beats and things. However, while I enjoyed what bits I heard before and think it’s all very good, when I actually listened to the albums it becomes apparent it’s all a little samey. This sounds odd to say because it’s full of innovative production tricks and ideas but that’s just it. Every song is desperately quirky with the same super intimate vocal. I like the style, but there’s a lot of it. I do think it’s great that so many kids are into something a bit different though.
  6. I've dreamt about a real release of this for many years. This RE4 mod might do the job until it inevitably happens one day. https://www.pcgamer.com/amp/see-resident-evil-1-remade-in-resident-evil-4s-engine/
  7. Due to the reverse engineering on Mario 64 and painstakingly restoring all C code from the original machine instructions (accurate to the point where you can build the ROM using the SDK and it will produce the same checksum as the actual ROM images - insane work) - there is now a complete port of Mario 64 to directX 12. Videos on YouTube, and various downloads around. 4k support and buttery smooth. Nuts! Thanks for reading
  8. https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/resident-evil-4-remake/ Led by a new team that contributed to the significantly downsized Resident Evil 3. Would've preferred CV, Zero or a whole new game in the Remake style. Both Resi 2 and 3 Remakes suffered from obvious development issues and seemed oddly rushed. I'd welcome the news they were returning to finish either as definitive editions next gen. This means we have... RE8 in 2021. RE4R in 2022? Feels like to do this properly the release date will slip by a year or two.
  9. https://www.asos.com/pqube/dataeast-classic-collection-snes-cartridges/prd/10538581?affid=23983&socialadref=23844563382290439&fbadid=23844563383510439 Just saw this on my FB, wonder if they have others
  10. Have we got one? There's so many coming out it's hard to tell what the better ones are. Any sites or YouTube channels for reviews?
  11. There must be lots of examples like this. But I've never noticed this on the SNES before. Not sure if it's on the pal version. The little 1p/2p dots, carried through to the n64, GC, and Wii GC controller ports. Also the neo homecart system has premade cutouts and mountings for a cartridge lock bar that slotted into the cutout on the side of all homecarts. Someone actually 3d printed and made one which worked.
  12. Maybe Edge will ask them what's up with this? They could do a feature on tax avoidance and developer crunch and never get an exclusive feature again! Ha... ha...hmmm. https://www.taxwatchuk.org/rockstar_2019_tax_relief/ https://www.theguardian.com/business/2019/jul/29/grand-theft-auto-maker-uk-corporation-tax-rockstar-north-games So... as a dumb person, what's the deal? Is VGTR just a way of bribing Rockstar to keep it's studio and jobs in the UK? It seems a little bit cheeky (or should-be-criminal) to drain a government money pot (presumably tax payer's money) without paying anything back in tax, whilst turning over a ridiculous profit with one of the most successful franchises/studios in the industry.
