#4 was a pure guess on which game in the series it was.

They were pretty common late on. Most of the ones I saw used US art on PAL cases so were very easy to spot.

Yeah most older games don't have test menus. Most games with test menus have an audit of some sort, but most are not as comprehensive as the one @MagicalDrop posted.
Very woolly answer I know, but there was a lot of arcade developers who used a hell of a lot of hardware variations.
The new gen consoles have somewhat alleviated the pain. The downloads seem to get top speed and installing onto the SSD is much quicker, still a lot slower than popping your new Mega Drive cart in and playing though.
The endless updates we're the worst part of the PS4 generation for me. I spent a lot of time playing The Division. It was constant updates to the PS4, then the game, then it'd take 10 minutes to load into the game. It could be a bloody nightmare. I bought Days Gone the other week and left it for 8 hours to install and download the updates etc.

I've just played another couple of stages and it's not the same buzz I had yesterday. In much the same way SoR4 just wasn't SoR2, this just isn't the SNES or MD Turtles games for me. I know the newer releases are much bigger and fuller, but I still prefer the original games.

This is pretty fun. It doesn’t control quite as nice as Hyperstone Heist or Turtles in Time but the extra moves add decent variety and strategy.

Yep, the countdown on PS Store finishes at 2pm today.
I rarely go back to something if I've left it for a while. Notable exceptions are Fallout/TES and Yakuza/Judgment games.
#4 took me a while to think of, wasn't even sure when I tried it, just couldn't think what else it could be.

Mostly PS4 last Gen, XSX was winning the early running this year but I cancelled GPU a few months back after not using it for a few months. In that time the Switch has taken over. The poor PS5 has seen almost no use.
Damn, Dreamcast games lost their value quickly. I vaguely remember the bargain bin clearances probably around 2002-3 when they couldn't shift games new for £4.99 each.

Glad I skipped on the LRG version now. This will cost me £20 rather than £50 from them.
Yeah there's huge variance in sticks, even from same ranges. My personal favourite for shooters is the Sanwa JLF TM-8T, which is really mushy feeling. It's actually quite different feeling to the Sanwa JLF TP-8YT, my favoured stick for fighters, which is surprising as it looks like the TP-8YT is the same stick but with a PCB which means you only need a single ground wire. The Sanwa JLW is different again, that was designed for wooden cabinets rather than candy cabs and is a fair bit tighter.

Easy one for me today 🕹 High Score Day #77 - https://highscoreday.com
#5 is a little harsh, I'm pretty sure mirelurks are mutated crabs.

Hori RAP for me as well, again, may not be considered top tier for the price but they just work for me.

Bloody hell, that’s plenty of variety. It’s such a good looking game as well. I found playing a little slower has helped me loads. I think I used to just try burning through the stages and failing miserably.
I've just had a try on Probotector on the MD and it's not actually as hard as I remember. Granted I only got to the second stage, but if I spent enough time I'd definitely be able to learn the enemy patterns. I'll spend some more time and see how far I can get. How long is the game?
Posted June 9
Yeah they're pretty nasty. I tend to buy a few games from them if I'm getting something. Usually if there's something I'm mildly interested in but there's nothing else I fancy at the time I tend to just let it go. The CAVE releases will be a different story though I think
Posted June 8
All this talk is making me want to play Probotector
I'll probably stick it on, game over after 3 minutes then turn it off again. These games were definitely aimed at people who didn't have access to lots games back in the day. I'm so pleased they are done like that though, some of the Mega Drive games I've mastered I'd never get to do now due to time constraints and having zero attention span.

I've cancelled my PLAY subscription after they sent the last issue out in their stupid paper envelopes and I ended up with multicoloured paper mache. I asked for the mag to be resent only to be told it was out of print and they'd extend me one issue. Absolute fucking garbage.
TL;DR - Dodonpachi Resurrection and Espgaluda 2 coming to Switch plus more stuff

I've just had it with my latest issue of PLAY. Came drenched, complained, they told it was out of print and they'd extend me by a month, probably going to cancel my PLAY sub.
