    I play video games, I buy and listen to music of all sorts, I mess around on an acoustic guitar, I own video capture and editing software, I randomly dance around at any opportunity, spend time out shopping for more music/games/film or seeing folk...the usual, really.

    Chun-Li (possibly NSFW thumbnail)

    Welp
  3. That's... much sooner in the new year than I expected - nice. I wonder how the map compares to Tenchu's ingame offerings...

    Gaming things you regret buying...

    Foolishly bought a Nintendo DS on launch without considering the possibility of newer, better models being released. It’s the main reason I still don’t own a 3DS. I also bought a 360 fighting game stick for Street Fighter but couldn’t deal with the stick’s wobbly travel at all. Six-button pads 4eva!

    The Emulator Thread

    I only tried the stable release but it's promising. My recent nemesis with emulation has been Cool Cool Toon but it handles that unbelievably well, with no glitching and little slowdown. Oh, and it picks up a wireless controller (I'm using a DualShock 4) with no questions asked. I also had a look at Radirgy and that plays well too.

    Nvidia Shield Tablet relaunch, followed by everyone criticising them for ripping off Nintendo or something.

    Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection - May 2018

    If we're talking Alpha 3 releases you might as well go for Double Upper, with added story bits, other modes, and Ingrid. Although both games would look pretty pixelly on a big screen.

    Is "Game" finished?

    Import snacks are always pricey - years ago a store appeared in one of our shopping centres that sold American confectionery and soft drinks, and the prices were always daft. The same sort of stuff popped up in WHSmith for a little while. You'd browse once for the novelty of seeing Twinkies or whatever, but the prices ensure that you rarely come back.

    Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection - May 2018

    Hugely belated GGs to @Lyrical Donut for the recent games! I hadn't played for a while due to other games stuff but it was fun to hop between the four games. Also it seemed generally pretty stable most of the time on my end, with stutters being the exception rather than the rule.

    What are the most varied game series?

    The weirdest thing is that there’s also a branch of “conventional” sequels in Bubble Symphony (known as Bubble Bobble II elsewhere) and Bubble Memories: The Story of Bubble Bobble III. So Bub & Bob’s arc went all over the place depending on the timeline.

    What are the most varied game series?

    Nice. Admittedly the premise was similar and it’s not like it changed genre, but the environmental storytelling was on another level and the gravity gun transformed the gameplay. More drastic transformations in old games series: Mario vs DK becoming Lemmings in its second game was a surprise, and March of the Minis is still one of my favourite DS titles. Similarly, an old C64 platformer series named "Creatures" took the Torture Chambers of the first game and made them the focus of the second game - turning it from a side-scrolling platform game into more of a puzzler. I think you know a sequel does something different when you vastly prefer one game over others in the series.

    What are the most varied game series?

    Half-Life really reinvented itself over the course of its series... although admittedly that was two games released years apart. I think the easy answer would be Mario or Zelda because they barely stick to a format. You're rescuing the princess or finding the triangles, but the way you get there is rarely the same. E: Kirby, to an extent. He had a tilt-sensor game, a platform-doodling game, Metroidvania formats (Amazing Mirror), then you've got Mass Attack and Air Ride...

    PlayStation VR

    I'm sure VR will definitely keep going - even just at an indie level there are developers creating things who will want to see their games on all VR platforms, and as technology improves more developers may be tempted. I think going all-in with VR for the next-gen could be a bit much for some (considering how much a bundled headset might affect the price), but if the PS5 was "VR-ready" and you could choose between the next-gen VR headset or what we have today (less bells and whistles but cheaper by then), it might sway people.

    Getting strong Assault Android Cactus vibes from Metallic Child, described by SE as "a roguelike action game that is heading to PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch"
