  1. 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/
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. Taito are releasing a new Bubble Bobble sequel on Switch this November. It’s 4 player. I don’t care if the game turns out jank, gonna take that physical edition. And hopefully Bub & Bob get a Smash Bros DLC slot as well. Would love this to lead to a Bubble Bobble 1-3, Rainbow Islands, Parasol Stars collection on Switch. More here: https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/4-player-switch-bubble-bobble-to-launch-exclusively-first-in-europe/
  9. People need to get down from their high horses. Many of us (me included) watched it in the cinema and will also add it to the blu-ray collection.
  10. Recently I've found I'm having more reasons to want to use things like Premiere Pro, After Effects, Illustrator, InDesign and of course Photoshop for professional use and obviously pirating is right out if I'm not just retouching family photos or whatever for my own purposes. I qualify for educational pricing for the forseeable future but that's still endless renting of software with no end in sight. So, I was wondering how everyone was managing with/without the Adobe in various ways? What's replaceable? And what isn't? I've just gone all in on Affinity software, starting with a "w
  11. Does anyone remember this game? A friend and I used to play it constantly as it really grabbed your imagination. Hard as balls but running away from 4 vampires and a large spider was terrifying. Music was a Hubbard special and is fantastic. Check it out if you haven't. I played it mainly on spectrum but bought it later on c64.
  12. I've personally little interest in retro gaming nowadays, the pal N64 sucked ass, why on earth would I ever want to play it again? I have a neo with 38 games that's my main machine, over the PS4 (2 games), and an ngpc with five games. I've never been one for omg 2500 retro games including a sealed tomorrow never dies for PS1. It does literally nothing for me. What kind of retro gamer are you? Do you just hoover up any old shit at car boot sales because it's a gaming item from the 90s - regardless of what it is or condition, or do you have a specific interest in a nice
  13. Anyone a regular or been? Seriously impressed, kudos to the owners. The upstairs is the best retro arcade I've been to, bar none. Literally a 25yr time warp.
  14. Hiii I'm only looking to play up to PS1 at most so it doesn't need to be outrageously powerful. Any idea? I haven't kept up with the latest gp32 devices. Mainly for SNES, and mame, keyboard would be cool for c64 or dosbox. I see some running Windows 10 nowadays?
  15. So I've Google how you can in-yellow the consoles; that's way too much for me. Any recommends on how to scrub them a bit for sale? I'm not bothered about them being in mint condition or getting top price. Rather iw want them gone with some remuneration.
  16. This is still prototype footage, however the team has been awarded a small grant from the UK Games Fund. It looks really very decent for early footage! I hope it pans out.
  17. The thread. Resources: World Cup Calender for your devices! http://www.skysports.com/football/news/15241/9066717/world-cup-calendar
  18. Input magazines. Im about to bin a load of Input Magazines from the 80s. Does anyone really want? If not they are gone. There are about 50 or so issues. Pick up from Newcastle Upon Tyne.
  19. I couldn’t find a topic, but this is well worth a watch. It won 2 Golden Globes, and is available on Amazon Prime over here. It’s a comedy which is very funny and a lavish period drama which scratches that Mad Men itch. It also has a strong female lead performance. It’s one of the best shows I’ve watched lately and at 8 episodes doesn’t drag or outstay it’s welcome. I was going to post the trailer but it spoils a lot - best going in without knowing anything beforehand I think.
  20. If some fans in Brazil can put this out for fun, why can't Nintendo and the Pokemon Company do something more with their incredible IP than endlessly rehashed 3DS games, and the uninteresting Pokken Tournament? This is exactly what people are gagging for on the Switch.
  21. Tl;dr - Nintendo For the other consoles what are the best set of must play games that may swing a new console purchased either way. More importantly; why. My head tells me PS4; because VR and Uncharted 4. My heart tells me Xbone; because I already have one and it feels like home. How did you guys decide and would you make a different decision now, notably with the upcoming Xbone XXX.
  22. These are two slightly different topics tenuously linked by the developers desire to cater for the hardcore market and let that inform the direction of the game. Firstly, the can of worms that is Soulsborne games. I pumped 10 hours into Bloodborne, beat the Cleric Beast and whilst I love the horror environments and gameplay, I did not enjoy grinding for echoes or the lack of a save point close to a boss battle. It became a slog. If you have to learn things like 'invincibility frames' to time your attacks, you've gone too far down the rabbit hole imo. And I just don't have time to
  23. http://www.pcgamer.com/play-the-original-tomb-raider-in-your-browser-with-unlocked-fps/?utm_content=buffer5c58c&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=buffer_pcgamerfb Impressive!
  24. A study of 400 people, including 160 who play Pokemon Go regularly has shown that it has a positive impact on people's mood and amount of social interaction. Nice to have a positive finding for the impact of gaming, and one that fits anecdotal evidence of increased activity and enjoyment amongst players. Is this kind of thing, with interaction with the environment, the future of gaming?
