    Sega Master System Essential Games.

    Ultima IV is quite excellent, but might be a bit tricky to officially find. Another vote for Bubble Bobble — while I’m generally biased towards that game, the Master System version is quite excellent.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    Speed 2: Cruise Control. I mean, the original is hardly Shakespeare, but it has the essence of a summer blockbuster down pat with such aplomb that I just don’t care. Whereas, with Speed 2: Cruise control, I just don’t care. And nobody should.

  6. I wonder — and yeah, it’s a totally open question at this point — how well that will hold up for the OG Xbox particularly. There were a lot of folks kind of cranky how fast MS dropped it in favour of the 360, and it’s not like the original system — which is, let’s face it, PS2 contemporary era, so properly “retro” now — appears to hold much retro collecting love. One of those wait and see things, I guess.
  7. I’ve got a copy of the SFC Onita FMW game (actual cart, cost me about 50 yen). Trust me, you don’t need to play it. Nobody does.
  8. If it does — with Microsoft so happy to embrace BC (albeit only for a slender quantity of Xbox titles, but still), will there still be the same retro collecting vibe in 5-10 years time?

    Doctor Who

    I really enjoyed that — and the comparison to Dalek seems apt, as it enforced the “one Dalek is dangerous” idea well. Shameless, spoilery plug: I wrote about it at length while watching here: https://www.alexkidman.com/opinion/thoughts-on-doctor-who-resolution/

    Currently playing...

    Devil Dice on the PS1. I'd forgotten how compulsively wonderful it was. And now it's all I want to play. All the time. Stupid work "getting in the way". Can't they see I have die faces to match up???

    Grind Session. Mostly because I found my disc of it and I have no memories of it. At all. I’m worried I’m going to regret this.

    Movie viewings that broke the fourth wall

    Might not count, but one that sticks with me: Romeo & Juliet (Luhrmann version) these two two old ladies, essentially Python pepperpots in real life, sit in the row in front of me and start chatting in that pepperpot way during the ads. A little loud, but whatever, they’re just ads. Then the movie starts, and thankfully they’re quiet throughout. Until... The end sequence, spoilers, suicides, etc. big dramatic climax, the cinema is rapt, deathly quiet. Romeo is dead, Juliet wakes up and realises what’s happened, goes for the gun and one pepperpot turns to the other, and loud enough that the whole cinema can hear says “OOH, LOOK! SHE’S LEFT HANDED!”
