  1. Wow, I didn't realise they'd been up to something else as well. I thought the AAA news came after the decision to drop their bandwagon jumping Battle Royale game so didn't expect them to have anything to show after just a few months work. We're all talking about and expecting sequels to popular franchises to be the focus of the event, hopefully the PS5 launch will bring some fresh blood and Housemarque definitely deserve to get some recognition.
  2. I know, hence the "can't see it happening though" comment. It's just wishful thinking, a bit like the Ridge Racer comments in here. I'd love to think they'd have a AAA launch game, but didn't they waste a couple of years chasing cash cows before giving up? https://www.polygon.com/2020/1/23/21077309/housemarque-battle-royale-stormdivers-on-hold Don't get me wrong, I love their work - Resogun is my most played PS4 game but it's a big ask for any dev team to go from arcade style to full on AAA. Good luck to them though
  3. Fingers crossed for Resogun 2. Can't see it happening though after Housemarque said that "arcade is dead".
  4. I guess anything can be done, whether the license for the Vectrex along with the third party games (Scramble for example) can be obtained and then it being financially viable to produce a relatively small run of specialist CRTs is another matter. I would guess that the screens would be the weak link as the mini market aims at a relatively budget price point which custom CRTs surely can't meet. Also, how do you make something mini when it has a CRT? Obviously you could sack off the vector CRT and go for LCD or just have a TV out but making a Vectrex that uses a non-vector screen pretty much misses the point. That really would be a case where a Raspberry Pi could do the job just as well.
  5. Love the album sleeve shelves, a nice touch
  6. I didn't bother with a picture as it's pretty much a generic black disc with a generic sleeve with a sticker but currently playing some new but old school dance influenced bangers courtesy of Tone Dropout 8: https://tonedropout.bandcamp.com/album/tone-dropout-vol-8 Tone Dropout 9 is up next.
  7. Totally agree, I've just had a bag of the margherita ones and they taste like every other tomato ketchup flavoured crisp that has even been made, i.e. shit. Pizza Express need to be worried if their pizzas taste as bad as that
  8. I know it's a forum fave but Burnout Paradise did nothing for me. I just wanted to race on a course, not drive around looking for stuff to do. Destiny takes "playing for the sake of it and waiting for it to get as good as others say it is" to another level though. I hated that game so much with its crappy voiceover, stupid bullet sponge enemies and having to fly to a space station and then walk for ten minutes to unlock some stupid encrypted engram that added nothing my character. "But the DLC is amazing" I hear you say. Why would I buy DLC for a game that's as bad as this? I did play it for a few weeks, but out of a sense of responsibility, rather than enjoyment.
  9. Alderson Loop by Dalham Looks even nicer when it's not spinning. Sounds bloody great too. https://dalham-cis.bandcamp.com/

    These are my most used online record stores: Bandcamp Bleep Juno Norman Records Coldcuts Hotwax Piccadilly Records (close enough for me to collect in store, or at least it was before lockdown) If you're looking for anything out of print, Discogs is a good place to start Edit - Keep an eye on these for sales of older stuff: https://www.whatrecords.co.uk/ https://www.lostinvinyl.org/
  11. Not quite a test record but close enough for a tenuous link - As a demonstration of new fangled stereo recordings, Decca Records released "A Journey Into Stereo Sound" in 1958 which contained the much sampled line "This is a journey into sound" It's used in plenty of songs, (Beat Dis, Coldcut's remix of Paid in Full) but my favourite of them all is this absolute banger by Public Enemy:
  12. I saw one of the latest episodes the other day and Marge's voice hasn't held up well. It's no worse than the writing, jokes, music and storyline I suppose but did stand out as being not quite right.
  13. I guess it was a bit of an open and silly question. I've had to resist buying too much stuff this time round, I got a bit carried away last time they did this. The site seems to be holding up well though, certainly better than the previous attempt.
