  1. Regrets selling your collection?

    I've sold things and regretted it, but only quite specific stuff. I think you'll generally find that you won't miss the majority of your collection. But there *will* inevitably be individual items in there that you later kick yourself about parting with (and if they're desirable games, the medium is now at the stage whereby they absolutely will be more expensive to buy back). If you have the space (and I realise this sounds like a ludicrous indulgence) then I recommend having a dedicated room or at least area for retro stuff. Here's some practical and hard-won advice: Don't fill it with hundreds of games or boxes of stuff. Keep it super clean and tidy and uncluttered. Just have a couple of systems out (any more and you'll be overhwlemed by choice and probably won't end up playing anything) and only put the games out that you actually enjoy putting on regularly (a lot of the reason that Saturn and DC shmups and fighters are so valuable is because they are fantastic to put on for a 15 minute whirl, in a way few contemporary console games are). When I did this I found that I enjoyed my old games a great deal more, and much more than I ever expected...
  2. I thought they said it was going to be six months before you can pay for a world transfer? Has that changed in light of the difficulties?
  3. Getting pretty tired of waiting for the Moogle server to open up for character creation Is anyone playing on one of the US ones for now?
  4. Extraordinary video of Naoki Yoshida's emotional apology for Final Fantasy XIV 2.0's server issues at launch - http://bit.ly/19KsNgg "When you're a producer you have to play the tank role" - scrappy translation
  5. You wait hours for it all to download, install, update and create a character and then all of the EU servers are locked. FFS! Anybody know how often they're opening them up again?
  6. Dark Souls - Prepare To Die... You Died.

    Hey, I spoilered it. And the game's been out in Japan for a week already FFS. Like I said, I figured it might be useful as I could have done with that a couple of days back. Anyway. Deleted.
  7. Xenoblade Chronicles - Wii

    The whole spider thing is one of my favorite moments in any game I think. It's partly where it occurs in the experience, where you just start striking off on your own properly for the first time, exploring off the beaten track of the main storyline, growing a little bolder with each step. As a result its appearance is perfectly timed. I think a Western developer would have foreshadowed heavy-handedly with cobwebs etc, and wouldn't have had the guts to leave it as an incidental encounter.
  8. Xenoblade Chronicles - Wii

    This thread reminds me why I started reading games forums so many years ago. So full of wonder and positivity. There's nothing quite like the shared experience of discovering a world through semi-synchronous play. Also: holy crap I love this video game.
  9. Super Street Fighter IV (3DS/PS3/X360)

    So alone. :'(
  10. Super Street Fighter IV (3DS/PS3/X360)

    Not long now, kid. Anyways, I uploaded a video to YouTube! The replay stuff is so hott. I totally lose but I don't care because I did a EX Shikusen into Kaisen Dankairaku to take the second round and it was pretty much the best feeling ever. So much so that I sort of 'rested on my laurels' in the third round.
  11. Super Street Fighter IV (3DS/PS3/X360)

    This sounds like a negative to me...
  12. Super Street Fighter IV (3DS/PS3/X360)

    A long interview feature I wrote on Daigo Umehara went up on Eurogamer today. Thought some of you kids might be interested.
  13. SFIV - 1st Division - Week 6 - Season 3

    Sheeeeit. So sorry. Been away at GameCity and then writing up a million other things that have been cock-blocking SFIV. But am back in black sorta. Will pop on tonight and see if any of my opponents are about. Othwerwise, Friday's good for me.
  14. SFIV - 1st Division - Week 4 - Season 3

    Yeah, to to confirm the awesome Cale matches. Really enjoyed that one, even though this has been a pretty bad week for me in terms of losses.
