    Playstation Now...Available Now

    It's free to use your old software is what they're saying.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Yep @Mr. Gerbik I’m not going to harp on about it here because I’m really happy more people are going to play Wild Arms and Ridge Racer Type 4. But it’s gotten to the point where it’s better to play some Sony flagship titles on non Sony hardware. Like Castlevania:SOTN and Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3. Playable (and I think purchasable) on the 360 for years now. The mini looks cute and it will sell a bunch to people who wish they hadn’t binned their PSOne post college. But I think Sony needs to step up their game when it comes to back catalogue stuff.

    As a PSone/PS2/360 owner I immediately understood where Microsoft was coming from. I still have old PlayStation discs and 360 discs. I can play my old 360 discs on the One. I have to rebuy my old games on the PS4 or buy a mini. MS are totally on point with their dig.

    I did. It made Mechwarrior easier to control. That's about it.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Same here. I really liked the game a lot, my only disappointment was that I played this directly after playing Lufia 2 (SNES) which was really similar in design. The 3D battle scenes date part of the game pretty horribly but the rest is lovely. Just don't get fooled like some were three hours in

    Ten years later I still love this New Order meets Batman clip.

    Steam

    I probably won't convince you but I used to love playing it solo, the computer did a decent job at filling in the empty player characters.

    Steam

    The Orange Box was what tempted me into getting a Steam account back in 2008, just to play Portal at the time. I've gone from being deeply suspicious to being a massive Steam fanboy to being annoyed about their desertion of curation.
  10. Funny you should say that, I read a few pieces years back suggesting that Double Dragon, Final Fight etal al were pretty much conservative fantasy games for young right wingers with one or two "decent young men" bringing justice to the streets by beating up outsiders and minorities. It's sort of covered here. http://gameological.com/2012/10/smacks-and-the-city/index.html

    What games did you complete? 2018 Edition

    Sep 18/09 A Date in the Park (PC) My favourite of the short games I've played this week so far. It's about an earnest young man on holiday in a park in Portugal trying to meet up with a girl he met the night before. Is it true love? Will he ever be able to talk to anyone without asking if they speak English? And what about that duckling? It's free on Steam and it looks like a Sierra VGA adventure game when they went for photo realism. In 640 by 480 pixels. 16/09 Fatale:Exploring Salome (PC) I've never set aside to experience this art project in all the years of owning it. I like walking simulators, I like art games. This should be great. (One hour later.) Um...no. I've liked other works of Tale of Tales but this one just left me cold. Maybe I would have been more impressed had I played it when I bought it...but now....no. Play anything by Fullbright or The Chinese Room over this. 15/09 Mandagon (PC) A Metroidvania set in Tibetin limbo with no enumies. Just you. It's essentially a 2D walking simulator. You'll either find it relaxing and zen like I did of fall asleep. Again, another free short game about death. 13/09 Port of Call (PC) Another short game about death. I found it too much of a sparse fetch quest at first but the end of the short story was pretty good. Again another Steam freebie. 12/09 Sisyphus Reborn (PC) Short and sparse adventure game. Possibly not the best game to play at the end of a shitty day...or so I thought. (Free on Steam.) 10/09 Pink Heaven (PC) Came back to attempt to complete this neat little 8 bit style platformer three years after my last attempt only to have beat the boss and the game two minutes later! Both this and Pink Hour by Studio Pixel are free on Steam and highly recommended for those who love retro style platformers. 10/09 The Old Tree (PC) Very short free point and click game very much in the vein of Botanicula. Help a little alien (best decribed as a literal crabapple) make his way outside a tree to see the night sky. It's free, it's charming, what more could you want?

    I’m writing a C64 version of Picross

    Ask Jeff Minter, I'm sure he'd be ok with you using some of his old sprites.

    Maybe some old 8bit sprites from classic games.
