    If you haven't played it before I'd give it a go from the eshop first. I really liked the look of it but just didn't enjoy it at all.

    Probably for the best. I was playing Earth Atlantis on the PS4, honestly it's worth a couple of quid, but if the physical release is expensive it's a total waste of money. I'm buying pretty much any physical shooter that gets a retail release, but I wouldn't go back now and try to hunt down shite rarities

    Amazon and Thegamecollection both have Cotton Fantasy (Western release of Rock n Roll) up for pre-order.
  4. I think that is the full “set” in PAL territories. I also was trying to find out a couple of months back and couldn’t find any evidence of any other physical releases. I’m sure I read somewhere there was a third, but when I tried to find it I couldn’t. I think it was on a Reddit page or something so likely someone confused or talking bollocks.
  5. Bloody hell, if they remake rotary sticks like the old LS-30's that'll be legendary. Those things cost best part of £100 each in any sort of decent condition.
  6. There’s a fair chance it’ll still turn up. 2 weeks late is sod all in my experience of getting Edge delivered.

    Did Pockets used to post in here? He asked for his account to be deleted a while back.
  8. Famicom controllers with 2ft of cable on them. I don't want to sit with the console on my knee. They also cramp your hands pretty quickly.

    Ahh ok cool, I've got a pre-order with Zavvi, I think it's due to be sent out on the 14th.

    Was that from Zavvi?
  11. I tend to play with Japanese voices and subtitles where applicable. If it’s meant to be spoken in English then I’ll let it play in English and the subs can do one. I usually end up skipping lots of dialogue though.
  12. Yes, since you're willingly ignoring definitions of words now, I'll take a back seat on this, there's nothing to be gained.
  13. No, that would be lowering demand, but nice try
  14. You're still wrong though aren't you? Instead of trying to prove yourself correct you pull up the stupid quote I made to show how stupid your argument is.
  15. I mean I'm not wrong at all, you're just bending this to suit your definition. or maybe I am..... Shit people, Tesco are charging for carrots, get out there and buy them while you're can, they're making them artificially scarce!!!
  16. Imposing a charge is not artificial scarcity. Artificial scarcity can see people speculating on items because there's few of them. If the artist still sells them then those items will never be worth more than the price the artist sells them at.
  17. That is not how scarcity works. If something is readily available in an infinite number, it's not scarce, regardless of the cost.
  18. Yeah I imagine they are spare copies and returns. Strictly limited had a similar sale the other week.
  19. 1. Streets of Rage 2 - Loved it from the moment I first played it. Must have played it through hundreds of times over the years. It’s the perfect beat em up. 2. Deathsmiles - My favourite shooter of all time, and the game that opened my eyes to the bullet hell genre. Possibly helped by the fact I expected so little when I bought it. 3. Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir - Not everyone’s cup of tea, but certainly mine. I love the atmosphere, the animation, the sound, the combat, literally everything about it is amazing to me. It truly absorbed me with its story of sadness. 4. Yakuza 0 - My favourite game in my favourite game series. It has hours and hours of stuff to do and no game has ever made me laugh like this. 5. Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike - Hands down my favourite 1 on 1 fighter of all time. It’s absolute perfection for its genre. I’m dead certain on the first 4, the only one I had to think about was 3rd Strike. I think I could be convinced to replace that with the right game. The other 4 would be considerably more difficult to displace.
  20. Necromunda: Hired Gun was a great bit of fun when it worked. I bought it on Xbox without realising that they were way behind their patching schedule on Xbox. The game was a mess of crashes and glitches. It was never going to win any awards, but if you're a fan of the Necromunda universe then there's definitely enjoyment to be had with this, even if it is a little fleeting.
