    Nintendo Switch

    Amazing trailer, worth a watch even if the game turns out to be poop.

    Have you ever lost your save file?

    Close the thread, we have a winner!

    Have you ever found a game too hard?

    I’m probably wrong in that case, my booze-addled mind can’t distinguish real memories from imagined anymore.

    I lost EVERY save file on my Saturn thanks to a dodgy memory card. It did give me another reason to play Sega Rally time trial again though.

    Death Egg Zone from Sonic 2, with the giant, rotund mecha-Robotnik, right? I think I’m right in saying that in all subsequent compilations (with the possible exception of ‘original mode’ in the version included in Sonic Jam) Sega added a small number of rings right before you fight the robot Sonic. Very hard without them!

    Fuck! But...
  7. Nightmarish. Anyway, Rick Moranis or no deal, Hollywood.

    Star Trek Discovery

    Yes, it has to be recognised that this is a technique TNG used every time they sat down in the boardroom. But it works in that context because as Captain, Picard doesn’t have the specialist knowledge of a chief scientist or chief engineer and, as in any environment, a leader needs the input of subject matter experts to make the best informed decisions possible. Except Worf, he probably didn’t need to be there. Im not sure what you just described equates to Star Trek as I know it.
  9. It’s out? Thanks for the heads-up. To the Netflixmobile!

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    That was the only way I found it remotely possible to do. There was even a section where I’d heal at the bench then go die on purpose in order to get soul, go back to the bench to heal and repeat, until I maxed out on soul... still took me about 25 attempts. Cheese, but of a very mild variety.

    Dave Perry is back...

    Grabbing Kylie’s bum aside, I’ve always loved Dominik Diamond. He’s a perennial raconteur and a great entertainer, although he does seem to make a habit of falling out with people. For whatever the reasons behind it, it’s a shame he didn’t continue to appear on U.K. TV. The Dave Perry video - I had to go to another room, away from other people, to watch it. Very embarrassing, badly misjudged.

    You should be able to use the map to identify areas of potential progress - if you haven’t been using pins to remind yourself of what kind of gate is in the way this might take a bit of time but at least you’ll be getting geo, and fighting enemies is fun even at the worst of times.

    Astonishing! Yes I suppose I never even got past the first stage in that case.
  14. Oof yes, I remember Wrestlemania 2000 on the N64 - I never got close to mastery but I did beat the Undertaker, who was the last fight if I remember right. I felt like I’d gone through a Rocky-style journey to become the champ, I never thought I’d get there because he was tougher than old boots.
