    Paying to Play 'Early'

    Aye I remember back in the OG Xbox days used to get stuff early all the time... Either through the post or from the local indie store.... All just marketing nonsense... this practice ironically might hit day one sales figures for a game so kind of stuff that up too.... In fact when do they now count "day one" sales.. .from the early release date or the general release date?

    Paying to Play 'Early'

    Doesn't bother me TBH... if people keep paying they will keep selling... more fool the people paying extra TBH.... they must feel its worth it. Guessing the marketing people know what strings to pull. At least if there are any bugs they get to experience them first Happy to wait...

    Nintendo Switch

    MS are bad for tricks like this too... Seems you can easily enough subscribe to services via the console... however to change any billing cycles etc you have to go to the website...

    The Arcade Ten

    There's a really nice version of Salamander on PS4... downloaded it a while back although not quite the same without a proper digital stick.... Even has slow-down as I remember it on the first level....

    Nintendo Labo - What's in the box?

    That's the problem I have withe the variety kit I bought... and why I won't be buying the vehicle kit sadly. Once the things are built they just clutter the place up and rarely get used again. Great concept though and loved building the things in the kit...

    The Arcade Ten

    Need to add Resogun too on the PS4 then... spent crazy amounts of time on that. In fact its all I played on the PS4 when I got one!

    The Arcade Ten

    I think its about games you played in an arcade? Perhaps though the age demographic might be an issues here... Last time I poked my head into an arcade it was just full of gambling machines and dance games.... In fact the last time I went to what felt like a proper old school arcade was when I visited the Game On exhibition a while back... it was bliss. Also the National Film Museum in Bradford has a fair selection classics on the top floor... including a Defender, Space Invaders and Street Fighter 2 cabinets... they only take 10p's too....

    The Arcade Ten

    R-Type Salamander Terra Cresta Space Invaders Nemesis Street Fighter 2 Galaxian Battlezone Tempest Outrun Yep like shooters....Lots of others... loved all the Sega cabinet games - HangOn, PowerDrift, Space Harrier, AfterBurner and the full car version of Ridge Racer. Just something magical about the arcades... in particualar the games with hydraulics made for a great experience that you couldn't get at home.... Edit: Forgot Roboton 2084 and Defender too....
  9. Remember this too... Sega Saturn was always seen as the "hardcore gamers" machine of choice. Not quite sure why?! However I am guessing it mostly harks back to the fact that Sega has heritage in the arcade industry whist Sony didn't and was the fiesty newcomer to the market - and much like MS bought it's way into the industry by acquiring talent and by and large just being a publisher. Guess its similiar for Nintendo fans too as Nintendo is a producer of games and has always made its own content for its consoles. I guess this is mainly why th DC is also fondly looked back on ... it was the last console Sega made for the home that hosted its arcade content.
  10. Yes.. that and the games that started coming through for the PS2 around that time... GT3-A-Spec, Silent Hill 2, GTA3 etc. Just one after another. Think the PS2 was the turning point for me and dragged me away from PC gaming... until I ditched the PC altogether as a gaming plaform with the release of the 360 in 2005. Still think the Xbox 360 has been the best gaming platform so far for me personally (including the current gen).

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Going with the Standard Edition via Game Pass for now... Plenty of things I want to also play on there and got it for £11.99 back in August for three months so get to effectively play FH4 for £4 upto beginning of November. Might end up buying this if I run out of things I want to play on Game Pass....

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    "Best of Bond Car Pack We are thrilled to announce the Best of Bond Car Pack as the Day One Car Pack for Forza Horizon 4. The pack is included as part of the Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate Edition and will be playable with early access to the game, beginning on September 28. Players will also be able to purchase the Best of Bond Car Pack separately at the global launch of the game on October 2." OK so included for ultimate edition owners.... however Ultmate edition is £80..... Wonder how much these expansion packs will be? Guessing £15 based on past Horizon packs....

    Xbox One X

    Same here (LG). I assumed it didn't have HDR for a while then started messing around with the menu on the TV and found that setting! It's my other halfs TV she bought before we moved in together so just assumed it was an oldish 4K TV that didn't support HDR. The other thing is the cable - there are apparently different types of HDMI cables that support different speeds... obviously 4K is going to sending more data at higher speeds down the cable so make sure that you use the one that comes with the X... (speaking from experience here...:) )
  14. Agree it was a great system the amount of IP they were pushing out was insane.... Had both and when I eventually got a PS2 after the Dreamcast I was a bit dissapointed for a while... Still glad I didn't buy a DC at launch though. But there again only console I have ever bought at launch was the 360....

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Only just chatting about the possibility of one of these in another thread earlier in the year.... Interested in this but have an original kicking about somewhere complete with the original stickless controller. Not played on it for years only have R-Type Delta, R-Types and FInal Fantasy 7 disks for it.... Problem is I know that if I buy this it will be sat in its box about a month after I get it once the novelty has worn off - looks at SNES classic....
