  1. Looks like Deathsmiles I & II are getting a full PAL region release now for those who aren’t so keen on importing.

  2. Sodom was probably cut from the Western release because it’s a reference to the destroyed biblical city. They used to be funny about religious references.


    As for the Alpha series, I love them. I’ve got 3 of the 4 released arcade boards (I don’t have zero 2 alpha, which is interestingly the version on the SF collection on the Saturn and PS1, and is a pretty rare arcade game). 

    My personal favourite is Alpha 3, it’s probably my 2nd favourite Street Fighter game after 3rd Strike.

    Which Terminator game is it? Hopefully the Megadrive one, I had a quick go on that recently, and I'd be interested to hear the story behind it - it feels like it was developed in great haste.

    I love that game, all 12 minutes of it. I had it as a kid, but the fight against the Terminator on stage 3 used to stress me right out so I hardly played it. It still gets my heart racing now 😂

    Meanwhile I’m officially giving up on Mushihimesama. I’ve tried and tried and tried but I cannot get on with it, can’t pinpoint why whether it’s bullet speed or the visuals not agreeing with my eyes during play but I’m actually pretty gutted as I love the aesthetic, the music and everything about it really, and I double dipped on steam / switch too. But I absolutely SUCK at it. And it’s one people generally say is accessible. Bah! Clearly a me problem.


    Meanwhile I’m really enjoying Crimzon Clover World Explosion again and feel almost ready to go for a 1cc. Boost mode is great fun and I’ve even been enjoying the alternative music.


    I don't get on with Mushi either, love Futari, but the first game just doesn't agree with me.

    Yeah, it's coming out alongside the Steam release (on all platforms). I commented below this vid that they've really undersold it, lol.


    Andro Dunos 2 is out on Steam now. Anyone else taking a punt on it? I'm a huge fan of all of Picorinne Soft's other games, and it doesn't look a million miles away from Infinos Gaiden, so I'm feeling confident it'll be fantastic.

    Yeah I’ve got a pre-order in for Andro Dunos 2. I hope it’s better than the first game 😅

    Shout out to the time I sold my mint in box AES with matching serials for £200 in 2012 🤦‍♂️


    Think we've all done a foolish retro purge at some point !



    If it’s any consolation, someone sold me theirs (via eBay) around the same time for £235 with 6 games. The inserts on mine aren’t quite as nice though.

  7. I quite enjoy Mutant Rampage 😂


    It’s not a great system though, there’s a lot of duff games on it. I’ve only played the demo of Micro Machines, so I don’t know if the full version is the same, but it’s fucking terrible. It runs so painfully slow.

  8. I assume Hyper Street Fighter II is the 2003 CPSII. I know it has access to all different 'versions' of the characters, but it's not my favourite SF2 game.


    In fact, it looks like everything on there is from their CPSII board except Red Earth, which is CPSIII. That begs the question, where is Third Strike?
