  1. Rather than professing "It's shit!"... this more looks like it's it's own thing with everything built from the ground up again. It still looks like it will be excellent fun, especially if the comparison with the original is less the focus. Why can't it be it's own thing? I still own my Gamecube, and the original two games -US versions with prog scan - along with a Retrotink 5X scaler and the OG component leads, so I can dip into the original the way it was intended whenever, but this looks quite interesting still.
  2. I absolutely love the design of the PS5, and the OG PS3 for that matter. Historically, I feel the original form-factor designs of each PlayStation deliberately sets out to be striking - perhaps to get the attention of the early-adoptors who want a new cool thing with an interesting look - and the 2nd revisions are much, much more plain, and more mass-market focused. I sold my original PS4, which I thought looked incredible, for a PS4 Pro which looks far more boring, and tbh... wasn't really a required upgrade.
  3. Dunno, buy a PS5? You never know, you might have fun.
  4. fucking hell at the video though, it’s a miraculous 60 fps, but there’s a slight dip when you hit the boost/nitro… and they’re suggesting it should of been changed? What are they, game designers now?
  5. When I reflect on my own childhood, I really didn't get into videogames properly till I was a teenager. It wasn't till I got a SNES and was more around the age of 13 or 14 that I'd "properly" play games. The Arcade was the king before then, as everything there was designed for short bursts of attention. It feels a bit like the kid in the article is just way, way too young to be dedicating the attention to more complex games.... and exactly why just having fun in some digital playground would be so much more appealing. I say this as someone who is not a parent and doesn't have much of a clue about the matter.
  6. Well and truly ordered! I was going to get it anyways, so this is just awesome! I was also a baw hair away from ordering it off shopto as well!
  7. People who aren’t old enough to remember the days when you had to wire the plug yourself on electrical goods, don’t know they’re born!
  8. It's correct that the PAL Gamecube does not support Pro Scan (it might be hackable though) but a lot more games only supported 50Hz than you think. Quite alot!
  9. Oh totally! This is me! Those are so of my fondest days of game (even though I think things are as good as they've ever been right now), where I had a modded PS2 and a region switchable Gamecube with a Saurian cable as my two main machines. I bought so much stuff from VG+, Tronix and Play-Asia and played just so many videogames. I just wish I still had that full library of games - as even though I still have the original machines - I only have about a 1/4 of the library of games I played on those systems. I never had a big sell off, I simply had to trade games I'd played to get new games as I didn't have much cash then. I also had a Xbox then, but it was more of a Halo 2 online machine that anything else!
  10. Yes! Absolutely! That starter area is like a nice gentle "tutorial" type area that's nice and self contained. A few games have done that kind of thing, like Breath of the Wild and Horizon: Zero Dawn.
  11. Witcher 3 absolutely plays it's best when you take it slower and drink it all in. ...focusing on being a Witcher, and doing lots of monster hunting for coin. Basically be medieval Batman.
  12. I remember there being almost nothing to play or of real interest on the PS4 till Destiny arrived a year after launch, and even that was in poor shape. Loads of games at the start of that generation were shipped in a bad state and it was all quite a bumpy start. Now we have a whole line up of cool things, produced during a global pandemic of all things and people are upset that some of it isn’t free.
  13. If the Uncharted collection has an upgrade path from a reasonable amount, I’ll absolutely upgrade. Speaking as someone who has been involved in a remaster project, this stuff doesn’t just magically happen!
  14. I wonder if Uncharted 4 Remastered will remaster back in the Assassin’s Creed concept art framed picture?
  15. There was loads in there to look forwards to! Quite a lot coming in Q1 2022 and Elden Ring is also out then! Packed!
  16. I currently have a softography tally of an Edge 8, an Edge 6 & and an Edge 5... so one out of three ain't bad!
  17. Twelve Minutes officially 1 better than Third Strike.
