  1. Had a nosey in the charity shops whilst hiding from the rain today and found this little beauty for a fiver. The game is still sat on my to play pile so I may have to bump it to the top and enjoy flicking through this:
  2. It's a little more linear and has endless runner influences but Planet Alpha is the nearest thing to a cinematic platformer I've seen in a while. Beautiful too.

    Socketeer: My New Game Inspired By Paradroid and Spelunky

    Wow, my kids loved the trailer for this; had no idea it was a forum member's baby. Swamped with games at the moment but will pick this up later. Well done on getting it out there.

    Games you loved that are rubbish in hindsight.

    I finished the Amstrad version of Zoids back in the day. Don't think I ever really knew what I was doing but had far more patience/fewer games back then.
  5. Having checked, I'm afraid there's no text scale option @jonamok I have played it a bit on my Vita and everything is surprisingly readable but can imagine there being a struggle sat away from a screen. I would still recommend it because it's one of the best RPG experiences since Baldur's Gate II but can appreciate the text issue.
  6. Will have a check for you later (playing a PS4 review copy) but don't recall seeing such an option Can get pretty cluttered at times but the turn based combat means it isn't a huge problem.

    Am I alone in thinking this is the time to dig out full ROM sets of certain formats before they disappear completely rather than the one title in a while approach? Almost the opposite of what's intended by these changes. Wiiware has gone, Xbox Live Arcade; any other examples of lost systems/catalogues? (Some games from those have reappeared on Steam though).

    Game piracy in 2018

    Apparently it's a game update rather than codes so shouldn't affect 2nd hand but wouldn't be surprised if Activision pulled a fast one.

    God of War (2018) - Magni-ficent!

    I waited until post game for those; and was loaded with top equipment. The one you mention was still a PITA.

    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    Got it on Vita. It's bloody hard; like seriously tough. Got to the first boss a couple of times. Fun if you like properly old school pattern remembering gameplay. I admit that sounds like damning with faint praise but it is a tough game to fully recommend unless you want a hairpulling experience.

    Liverpool Football Club Thread

    If it doesn't work, I could easily see him at NXT
  12. Doing the same and nearly gave up before starting the third. I'm about a third in and it does seem better than Authority so far. Brings all the various threads from 1 and 2 together.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    It is hilarious and completely lacking in self awareness. It just needs to be reproduced in the classic scrolling credits fashion and it could be a First Order spinoff. Never has MANifesto been more appropriate.

    PlayStation Plus for July 2018 - Absolver & Heavy Rain

    Hoodlum Havoc I think (3). One of the best platformers of the GameCube generation.

    Let's Play: Persona (1996)

    Cool. Glossed over that you had played quite a bit before so you'll know what to expect. I think the frequency of battles was my biggest obstacle; at times, it seemed like every step brought another one.
