  1. Thanks. And no, I've heard good things but never played it, mostly because it's not on any consoles and I don't have a PC for games.
  2. Except there are always some people who will want to beat the game in the most stupidly difficult way possible, like by not upgrading their stats at all. So it's optional.
  3. It's actually pretty quick if you can use firecrackers to get close, get next to its back legs and slash away, dodge to the side as he flails his head around, and keep slashing. You can get a surprising number of hits in before it runs off again. Then repeat.
  4. No, you're quite right. It's all a bit of a mess. But that only makes it even more like SotN, which is exactly what I wanted. It would rather give you tons of options and not worry about balance than make sure everything is a perfectly pitched challenge. It's refreshing that it's not precious about how you experience it - experiment or don't, try and do things properly or take the easy way, do the side quests or just don't bother. Whatever you want. And I ended up with shed loads of corn potato and rice. More than I could ever get through. But it gave that chap something to do at least.
  5. Up. Then down. Then up. Then down again. And so on.
  6. 21. Futuregrind 13 Jul This was very cheap and turned out to be very good. A simpler version of Trials in a way, but you have to keep matching the colour of your wheels to the rails you land on. It's a clever system that has plenty of flexibility and makes for some challenging courses. Most importantly the control is spot on, so it's always your fault when it goes wrong. It's nowhere near as ambitious or precise as Trials, but it does what it sets out to do without any real flaws.
  7. Baba Is You is probably my favourite game of the year so far. For £8 it's a steal.
  8. 20. Gunstar Heroes 12 Jul Played through the whole thing on MD Classics in about an hour and a half. It's not a game I actually had on the MD originally, but I have played it before on emulation. Honestly, it's not one of my favourite Treasure games. It's bursting with great ideas and the many many boss designs are pretty clever. But I find the controls a bit sludgy and imprecise (and the jump is irritatingly weedy) and the whole thing just a bit messy and uneven. The difficulty level in particular is all over the place, with some bosses able to destroy you quickly if don't learn patterns and others falling over before they've barely had a chance to do anything. I may have felt differently if I'd played it when it first came out, and it's always difficult to judge an old game like this when you're trying to charge through it in one go. It is still a cut above most games of its time, but a little below the standard of other Treasures like Dynamite Headdy, Astro Boy, or even Mischief Makers. Previously:
  9. Yagami and Kaito's love for each other is a beautiful thing. They make a great couple partnership.
  10. She also hasn't sent the water out yet, so it's all made up. It's in the article, which is why I posted it in the first place.
  11. Surely the whole thing is designed to show how fucked up a section of the gaming community is? Either way, that's certainly the result.
  12. No Legendary Axe or Bloody Wolf though. I appreciate it might be only me who cares, of course.
  13. Was just coming to post that. But also this: https://kotaku.com/turbografx-16-mini-launches-in-march-with-50-ish-games-1836300247 It's a pretty damn good lineup overall. Definitely interested. But there are a load of untranslated Japanese games on there, which is fine for the most part. But Snatcher? Surely that'll need some English text?
  14. Just when you think people can't get any more fucked up, they find a way. https://www.kotaku.co.uk/2019/07/11/the-gamer-girl-bath-water-saga-keeps-getting-stranger
  15. It's a shitty fight. Fortunately, it's very different to most of the game. You can get a good number of hits in right at the start before he breaks free, which can get you about a third of the way through its first life bar. Otherwise run out the way whenever you see the kanji warning sign and get hits in in between. Then in the second phase, burn him.
