    Just grabbed the Senna DLC in the PS sale, another great mode. It’s crazy though, on PS only 0.3% of people have completed Chapter 1 of the Senna Career, 7 races that probably take about 30mins. I guess it must be 0.3% of all players rather than just those who have DLC? Bit of a shame if the DLC hasn’t sold well, as said above it feels like a real passion project.

    Probably. There is so much content in the main game that I've not even considered touching the dlc yet.

  2. To remove some whatabout-ism, I've worked on a few games where we've had to make a special Japanese version to remove the blood and gore. You can't even just comment it out I think, we removed the assets. 


    If we can to do that, they can make a version where these poor lasses can wear a jumper or something.


    I'm kind of okay with it being out there if that's what it says on the tin. And probably made with a domestic audience in mind. That Neptuna series just got a new version, for example. I know I can avoid it, someone else can enjoy that trash. Obviously there are lines that shouldn't be crossed but if you want to wank over an overly caricatured drawing then I'm not going to ban it. 


    Personally I mostly find it annoying when the game is 99% not that. Dragon Quest XI was fine except for puff-puff with bunny girls and for a while being stuck with some skimpy costume on one character as the original, not pervy, costume went missing as I was rattling through them all. It makes it worse in a "this is normal and acceptable" kind of way. 


    But I can guarantee that 1% is when my wife walks in like I'm watching some weird porn. "It's just how they make them... It's culturally appropriate... IT'S CULTURALLY APPROPRIATE!!!"


    At least I save some money on DLC and Ultimate/GOTY/Day 1 editions. You should be put on a register if you buy them.


    How about a jumper and sweatpants pack?

    I've got m3u for all my PSX games. Where do I edit the regex?


    On the page for the platform, there is a little pencil in the bottom right opens some settings to edit. Scroll down for "Accepted filename regex" and there should already be some weird looking symbols in there to edit. Probably need to change the .*$ at the end to .m3u

    Might change from Daijisho as it doesn't seem to like m3u for my PSX multi disc games. Can't find any option to tell it to ignore all other file extensions on a certain platform and only display m3u. 


    Tempted to make use of my Launchbox see if that works better for me.


    you should be able to do that with the Accepted Filename Regex. 


    But you'd probably still have the problem where you have a mix of m3u and single disc games in there like I do. It really needs a "do not use sub-directory" option for me to clean it up

    Here is a question. A game like Tetris on Gameboy can be turned two player with a link cable on original hardware. 


    Is it possible to link (eg) an Anbernic RG353v with a RP3+ both running Tetris at the same time? Or is that beyond the limitations right now? 


    I don't think it's possible to link any handhelds together and do this. Never mind on different machines. 


    But, I think you can do it locally on a PC with two instances of the same emulator. Google that for VisualBoyAdvance if you want to try it. 

  6. A slightly larger but similarly priced device is Anbernic RG35XX now you can run Garlic OS on it making it much nicer. Not too much effort, just whacking files onto a SD Card. It's easier to buy. I've been very tempted despite not needing one. 




    It's very bad luck to be stung by Import tax but it can happen. I make sure have some money to one side and keep my fingers crossed. But I avoid it if I can. I think for the cheap price of these devices you could chance it on AliExpress and not get hit too hard. 

  7. 1 - 04/01 - Unpacked - Xbox Series X (Game Pass)


    There goes all them cheap achievements I've been using this game for. It was nice. Lovely even. It's quite clever how it tells a story with just a few items being placed on shelves. Something compels you to keep unpacking despite having got all the achievements you went in for that day. 


    I'm not sure why it got such great reviews though as I didn't enjoy the game itself. It can just feel like busy work. Like completing a Sudoku after having solved the interesting, tricky bit. Then it's just a matter of sticking the numbers in for closure. 


    I didn't complete anything last year but I got to the final parts of several rpgs so hopefully I can get a few more down soon. But man, do they start to drag when they think no one is going to be watching at that point. Boss fight, boss fight, boss fight.

    Huh? No games to play for the monthly Game Pass quests and 500 points to earn instead of 1K? Microsoft cutting down after the Christmas period?


    Edit: Having said that, I see the weekly Black Desert quest is now 250 points. Shame I have to play Black Desert again.

    I might not bother now I’m getting loads of points for sitting in an Age of Empires lobby every day. The faff to get 1k almost wasn’t worth it.

    Still buying it!

    My favourite bit is the small section about what was popular and happening 17 years ago. Although 17 is such a random number. Would've prefered 20 (or 18 or 15). But still one of the bits I check the first upon receiving the magazine.


    I'd guess on their first issue they looked back 20 years and there was nothing, and 15 years they'd missed pivotal stuff
