  1. There aren’t any original Street Fighter 2 cabs. SF2 was only ever sold as a conversion kit with the PCB and artwork. It may be original artwork though.
  2. Yeah that's what I meant by 'talk of'. It's coming back, but they haven't really said much for a while. At least from what I've seen, I kinda dropped off from GW a year or so ago.
  3. Warhammer Fantasy is a product you can no longer buy. Some of the big factions have been migrated to its replacement, Age of Sigmar and there is talk of Fantasy returning, but as it stands there’s no Vampirates being sold by GW. I was fucking gutted when I found out that WHFB was dead and had been replaced by AOS.

    I tried the arcade mode on Natsuki, I must have done the same as Rsdio and assumed it didn't have an arcade mode because Ginga Force doesn't. It's ok I suppose, the problem for me is the levels are so easy then bosses are all just bullshit patterns. It reminds be a bit of Triggerheart Excelica with its generic mediocrity. Not sure I'm ever going to get into either Natsuki or Ginga Force with the volume of stuff I have to play.

    Another reminder of how shit the local post is here. Still not had my copy

    Ah yeah I just jumped onto story mode, didn’t even notice arcade mode. Will take a look in a bit.

    Yeah I agree. It also means that scoring in the game really becomes a secondary thing because the only people playing on a level playing field are the maxed out people and those just starting. Perhaps I just need to be a bit more open. I’ll give it another go later and see how I feel.

    I never really got into Espgaluda 2 because it's so much harder than the first game which I played to death. I really need to give it a little more time. I've just started playing Natsuki Chronicles on PS4, got tired of waiting for whichever limited run company it is that's making the physical copies and bought that and Ginga Force digitally. Not sure how I feel about it just yet, the levelling up mechanic is.....interesting I think? I don't know, I prefer my games to be a little simpler, I don't really want to be underpowered then work up to being overpowered. I'd rather the devs just gave me a nice balance. I'll play some more today and see how I get on with it.
  9. The bit I've highlighted there is becoming more and more important to me. I used to love the blockbuster AAA games, but my experience has been soured over and over to the point where I mostly buy smaller titles now and wait for any big games to be in a decent state. This often means that by the time the game works properly I'm over it and just never end up buying it.
  10. I wish there was, I feel like it's a right chore trying to keep up with what's coming out, especially as my go to games are often Japanese only releases that hardly anyone wants
  11. Bloody hell, my end of year is absolutely packed. Looking at my pre-orders that are due this year.... PS4 Deathsmiles I and IIX Saturn Tribute G-Darius HD Disco Elysium Final Cut Switch Zombie Nation Tiger Heli Illmatic Envelope Swamp + Radirgy Swag Andro Dunos 2 Mario Party Superstars Streets of Rage 4 Anniversary Edition Cotton Rocn ‘n Roll Xbox Series X Lost Judgment (Xbox Series X)
  12. Some belting games right there! Twinkle Star Sprites is mega.
  13. Sounds like horizontal or vertical collapse. It should be repairable, although I’d take it to someone who knew what they were doing. Do you know what monitor it is? My guess would be a Hantarex of some sort, most Hantarex monitors are still easy to get parts for. If you’re not on UKVAC I’d sign up there and seek out a fellow called Grant who has the handle Gunblade. He’s been an arcade monitor repairman for decades, if I had issues with mine I’d use him without a doubt.
  14. Andy Palmer is opening another Arcade Club venue there, so hopefully there will soon be at least one good arcade there.
  15. Ah that's a real shame, it'll be totally dead before they can even patch it. Its only hope for revival might be gamepass.
  16. Is this game dead on Xbox already? Struggling for the last two days to find anyone online, and when they are the game just boots me out.
  17. Just started Aliens: Fireteam Elite. Only two missions in but initial impressions are very good. I'm a sucker for a license I love and there's few I love more than Aliens (pre-Prometheus anyway). I can happily see past the obviously scripted set pieces because I get to shoot Xeno's during them. Hopefully I'll get some time to give this a good thrashing tomorrow and work through a few more missions.
  18. I enjoy them, I don't often chase them but they can be useful for squeezing a little extra mileage out of games. I don't think I'd still be playing Hades without them to be honest. They can also be fun to look back on, although my list is sometimes a little depressing seeing how many games I've given up on after so little time.

    I just noticed Vasara Collection is under £2 on the PS store at the moment.
  20. I’ve got the Xbox version but yet to venture into it yet.
  21. phillv85


    The limited to Amazon versions get a B2 tapestry, but fuck knows what the difference is between the 10k and 14k ones then. Guess I’ll find out in December
  22. Nice to see some classic fighters coming to Gold recently. Another decent batch, two in two months after about a decade of me not really caring.
  23. You just made me read about it, Kotaku makes it sound absolutely beyond fucked, is it as bad as they made it out to be? Either way I think I’ll happily skip that one.
  24. phillv85


    G-Darius HD is available for pre-order at Base and thegamecollection for both PS4 and Switch, dunno how long it’s been up but I’ve only just noticed.
  25. phillv85


    Does it have anything on top of the 360 version?
