  1. Ooh, I'm hoping that we get an update (release date?) for NMH3 tomorrow. I imagine that there will be some Zelda info for the 35th anniversary, maybe a collection of some sorts, and fingers crossed for a BotW 2 trailer to end proceedings.
  2. Another Super Aleste fan here. I got it as my first SNES game back in the day (Xmas '92?) - I wanted SF2 but it was out of stock and my cousin was getting Super Mario World so I took a punt on Super Aleste. Fantastic game. I've been enjoying some of Compile's other games recently on the PC Engine Mini (Blazing Lazers, Spriggan) and they hold up remarkably well. Incidentally, my younger brother also got to choose a game when we got our SNES as a joint Xmas present - he opted for Pit Fighter!
  3. PS5 will be first I imagine, though no time soon. Quite happy with the base PS4 and Xbox One X for the foreseeable; nothing I've seen so far has screamed 'must have' but it will only take one or two stunners to sway me.
  4. How disappointing, both this and the Sony presentation were seriously underwhelming. I see little reason to upgrade from the Xbox One X any time soon.
  5. At least it was only 8 minutes of my time that this wasted!
  6. This is getting bought - there's a perfect spot on my 'work' desk next to all the other mini consoles I've acquired. Do we think it will be a JPN only release or will it come to the west?
  7. Definitely agree with what you say about the magic of experiencing many of these for the first time. The PC Engine and the Neo Geo were always the exotic, mysterious consoles of my childhood that were in sight in gaming magazines but alway just out of reach, so to speak, so I'm really looking forward to getting stuck in properly in coming days/weeks/months.
  8. Ahh I had convinced myself that I didn't need one of these, but having seen the photos above, mine is being delivered tomorrow
  9. Pretty sure I read that the SFX were just placeholders for now as they were indeed lacking! No release date given yet? Wouldn't be too concerned if it didn't land until 2020 as the end of this year is packed.
  10. I just started (re)playing this myself a couple of days ago, and much like yourself, haven't touched it since the Wii days. I'm so impressed with how good it still is; I'm not far in (just reached the graveyard) but the pacing is absolutely spot-on. I don't think the reload animation for the rifle will ever be bettered!
  11. Cheers pal, that makes the choice between this and Cuphead (double-dip) a little more difficult!
  12. This looks awesome. Are there any modes or challenges to encourage replayability, such as speed run modes or harder difficulties?
  13. Donkey Kong Country for me. The level where the blizzard gradually builds up as you progress is particularly festive. Every time I hear Aquatic Ambience I'm transported back to the Christmas it came out and we rinsed it ('94 if I remember correctly) so I think a cheeky little blast on the SNES Classics when I get home tonight is in order!
