Re: Doom Eternal

Disappointed so far. Dropped in the middle with too many new mechanics introduced too quickly and very poorly explained, and not convinced about the combat changes so far. The UI is **** awful, some of the worst in videogames in years (and with how bad videogame UI regularly is, that's saying someth...

Re: exA-Arcadia

Yeah, it looks fun and I'd like to play it, but I can imagine for an operator outside Japan, spending $1k+ on Gimmick would feel ROUGH. You'd have to be really confident in your customer base that it'd be worth it. And I don't think there's many around that would.

Re: Streets of Rage 4

It looks like something you'd find on the steam indie sale. For the SOR title, I expect a lot more. Music will probably be great, but the game just looks like another cheap steam title. If SoR2 or 3 came out right now, they'd be right on sale next to those indie games and no one would blink twice. ...

Re: Senjin (M2 shmup for All Net)

I'm curious as to the actual individuals involved too, just out of nerdy interest in the design pedigree. Harder to track personnel shifts in Japanese companies than western ones though. I expect members of the ShotTriggers team were involved - there's a Q&A with some of them from June last year but...

Re: exA-Arcadia

AtB is on Unity, right? I have never personally used it, but I heard it's not much better for lag unless you put some serious work into it. 2 frames from the hardware + something like 3/4 internally, maybe?

Re: Why Shaturn Grail?

Cheers. Yeah i was bidding on a Saturn pad which had a similar colour way (OG) But lots it. I have a few pennies in amazon vouchers burning a hole in my pocket so will likely pick one up there. How much and where is the USB to SS converter ? There's no converter. There are two separate pad SKUs. On...

Re: Why Shaturn Grail?

Yeah, I got a Saturn-plug and a USB one. They seem very close to the originals AFAICT. The shoulder buttons may be slightly less clicky? Part of the problem is that it's hard to compare a brand-new pad to one that's seen 25 years of use, unless someone can find a NOS Saturn pad to do a more direct c...

I'm impressed if it plays in proper 3:4 like that. Very, very interested to see side-by-side comparison videos. Wouldn't have been easy to do.

Re: Konbo arcade cafe, Edinburgh

I was particularly upset to hear about Konbo closing because months before its announcement, my partner and I semi-joked about the idea of me quitting my job and opening a coffee shop with candy cabs. My other big hobby aside from games is coffee and I've often said that if I was going to work in an...

Re: Aka & Blue Type R

That looks great. I think you're supposed to use the bomb more to get through some of the harder patterns, as it's a constantly recharging thing. It hits "Max power" pretty quickly in that video once used. Really appreciate the English subtitles for the story VOs at the top of the screen too (althou...

Re: Items you can't afford on Yahoo Japan Auctions

They came back on my 7th email last night after I mentioned getting debt recovery involved. Basically said my account has been inactive for a year, and the money is now theirs. Said it’s in the terms. I’ve checked the terms and I can’t see anything that says that. I’ve asked for the location of tho...

I saw this about 20 minutes after you posted it and did briefly consider throwing caution to the wind and sending a PM, but probably a good thing I didn't as I joked about it with my partner last night, and got a stern "I would've been quite angry" response at the idea ;) Oh well...

Re: Resurrection of CAVE?!?

I don't think a port of Maximum would do well and it'd be a mistake to attempt it. It's visually very unappealing compared to other DDPs, there'd be a fair amount of work required to make it a viable stick-and-buttons game off of its touchscreen origins, and it's got baggage attached to it. I reckon...

Ok, will have to pick up Puzzle Bobble.

First one seem to both look and sound nicer than PB2.
It is but PB2 has better 1p modes.

Re: Games to play with your spouse?

Puzzle games work well. Puzzle Bobble, Puzzle Fighter, etc. But there's loads more on MAME.
