    Cuphead. Classic cartoon inspired side-scroller

    I am incredibly jealous of that setup.

    Cuphead. Classic cartoon inspired side-scroller

    Played through five of the bosses and a couple of run n gun in co-op with my wife. I was worried it might be too difficult but the flustered moments of deaths saved by panicked parry revivals were delightful. Hollering at the telly. It looks absolutely amazing; I didn't know about the equipment customisation stuff so I mistakenly though the shop was selling consumables. The invincible dash feels essential at the moment. Sometimes the collisions can feel a wee bit off; not unfairly so but in the platformer stages for example, it can be hard to judge where holes in the ground start and end. A couple of bosses' deaths were unceremoniously abrupt and it's a bit unclear whether or not I'm doing any damage during their phase transitions but, uh, that's about it for the negatives. It's superb.

    Mortal Kombat 11 | April 23rd 2019

    The presentation in this is glorious. I've been playing a fair bit of MKXL recently to get ready for 11 and it's a noticable leap even at a glance. Here's the first official Switch trailer. Pared down of course but still looking good. Not gonna sway me from PS4 but maybe I'll pick it up later if it goes on sale.

    I'm very excited for Cuphead. It's really beautiful. I mostly play handheld so 2D games are basically perfect.
  6. I think a lot of people on here were really positive about Xbox One adding BC for 360; folk even said it was the main thing that drove them to pick one up. I dont remember there being much negativity.

    Huge Capcom Announcement - Home Arcade

    It wasnt prophetic unfortunately; I edited it after the update because I think I'm funny.

    Huge Capcom Announcement - Home Arcade

    Its delightfully absurd but I don't see the appeal beyond a novelty collectors item. It's too huge to be practical unless you have a good amount of space and something to rest it on. I've already got several £150+ arcade sticks I dont really need so it wouldn't even be worth it if it were compatible with current consoles/PC. If it can be hacked easily and filled with games of my choosing (3rd Strike) then maybe I'd consider it but the size remains an issue and it's too oddly-shaped to easily slot into a home-made arcade cabinet project. I'd have much preferred a cheaper solo unit with a USB port to connect a second controller. It's strange that they'd bother with WiFi for nothing more than high scores; maybe there'll be a web store you can purchase additional games from*? The parts sound solid though. I dont get on with octagonal gates but it'll be better for some games than others. *There won't be.
  9. Do you reckon well see a host of PS5-Ready games in early 2020 which will have extra bells and whistles on the new console, like a massively enhanced Pro-patch?

    I think it's at 4pm; the Twitter video said 3pm GMT.
  11. The "raytraced" audio ought to be great for VR. I'd imagine a higher-spec headset and some dedicated games will be a big focus. I'm still very interested in VR despite being disappointed in the current PSVR setup. From the NVidia RTX demos raytraced lighting and reflections look spectacular and, while 8k is definitely gonna be out of my budget, we will likely closer to a solid performance in native 4k. I cant wait to pay over £500 for a PS5 day one only to use its backwards compatiblity to play 3rd Strike all day anyway.

    Yep; I love it. It's been a while since I last used a real Saturn pad to be honest but it feels as reliable as I remember those dpads being. Nice and light, battery life is decent. I've used it primarily for Necro antics and it's been a wonderful time. I'll likely give it a go on Fightcade sometime too.

    Forza Street - PC and mobile

    Misread this as Fortune Street and thought we were getting a sequel. Gutted.

    Huge Capcom Announcement - Home Arcade

    Yeah I'd basically want it to work as a controller for all of the current consoles for that price. If it's easy to mod with a load of other games it might be a nice alternative to those Pandora boxes since you can be more confident it's genuine. I do wish the announcement was a new Capcom vs Capcom fighting game instead though, haha.
