    Nintendo Switch

    I'd love to see a Surface style switch, so same as we have now but aluminium instead of plastic, a proper kick stand, no bezels and just a high quality premium product.
  2. YouTube reviews seemed very positive.

    Retro gaming magazine scan archives

    I think both those lots of issues are already available on the official magazine discs that GamesTM and Retro gamer made, but that might need double checking.
  4. I doubt the new console will look like that 2 second photoshop mockup. If they're smart they'll make it a bit like a Ps2 slim, just a sleek very thin block than can hide away in the cabinet.

    Except 360 titles which are yours to keep forever, doesn't require gold to play later.

    Sega Saturn for Beginners

    These look great, i just don't get why they made two variants,USB and original connector. Why not just make it so the controller has a USB port on it and include an original console cable that connects to that USB port.

    ToeJam and Earl: Back in the Groove

    Yep I have to agree it doesn't feel quite right. The original was very slow paced which meant enemies were a real threat as they slowly inched towards you. Presents were hard to find and required a lot of exploration. To me it feels like how Titanfall 2 multiplayer felt to Titanfall 1, or Twlightlight princess to Ocarina of time. A very good copy that adds some new things but changes some core things ever so slightly as to ruin them. Admittedly I'm only playing the tutorial mode so I'm sure enemies will be more threatening on other modes but it just feels a little bit off. I have to also wonder why it's taken four years, the kickstarter video looks very similar to this as that was just a quick demo thrown together.

    The Saturn Appreciation Thread

    The first game he succeeded, the sequel he failed.

    ToeJam and Earl: Back in the Groove

    Yep I totally agree, thicker outlines to everything would really help to make it more cartoony and just improve the artwork that little bit more.

    I adored PVZ1, but PVZ2 just ruined the whole concept. The maps were a major downgrade and all the extra characters ruined the balance the original had. However recently PVZ2 had an update for some random reason years after they stopped updating it which added in the maps from PVZ1. So probably worth a go again!

    The joys of repetitive battle themes

    Yeah I wonder if there is something kind of formulae for creating a tune like this? That I am Setsuna one clearly misses the mark as it's not energetic it's more exploratory.
  12. There's something fascinating about battle themes, you know the ones I'm talking about like in Final Fantasy 7 or Phoenix Wright to name just two. They're often minutes long and sometimes just seconds of noise or music that loop. You hear them for tens of hours and yet they never get boring. A battle theme in an RPG, any game in fact, can drastically change how exciting the game is. If it's great like FF7 it becomes a classic theme that everyone can identify. If it's bad it just means you're listening to hours of terrible non pumped music that really brings down the game. So what makes a great theme? List some of your best and worst themes. I've already mentioned 2 (with the original Phoenix wright cornered theme being amazing and every sequel taking it and twisting it into its own theme too) but I want to share Undertales. I've only just started playing it but already it's a joy.

    Xbox One backwards compatibility

    Yep, it'll never ever happen in a million years. Of course they could remake it and just remove the licenses as they've done with Outrun in the past eg. Shenmue etc.

    Playstation Vita

    I think you can install it permanently now and still access the store but it's been a while since I looked into hacking it.

    Playstation Vita

    If you hack your vita you can buy special SD card adapters that allow you to use an SD card than the proprietary ones to save. Much cheaper and safer in the long run now it's a dead machine.
