Street Fighter alpha 1+2 for Sega Saturn (bought from Arcade Otaku). They are awesome conversions. Even though I played them to death on Final Burn emulator, nothing compares to a CRT tv. The games shine on that display. Add to this the fantastic Saturn gamepad and there it is: gaming heaven

MGS5 now at around 17% (?) , while the gameplay and the main story is pretty good, it has the most boring open world i have ever seen.

DOOM on Switch.

What's remarkable - at least to me - is that I started playing this in November last year, and during the time I've been playing it's been swapped in and out with other games played to completion. Going back to a game I've "paused" is not something I've done since the Master System days as a child, yet I've done it a number of times with the Switch.

Titanfall 2.

I'm late to the party, but it costs pennies nowadays. The campaign is only 6 hours, but it's epic, great entertainment for a weekend of downtime.

Multiplayer PvE is great fun, I only play Frontier Defense, haven't dabbled in PvP at all.

Doom 64 on N64. I think it holds up quite well both graphically and in terms of gameplay.

Cleared DOOM. Overall a lot of fun, but the last couple of stages felt a bit like filler. Well designed levels, combat had gotten a touch monotonous at that point though.

Now on Wonderboy The Dragons Trap. Memory has been playing tricks on me - I have no recollection of very much beyond the opening village and beach, so I'm questioning whether as a kid I actually did complete it or not. It was a borrowed copy, probably not. I've only just got the patience for its checkpoints now - back then unlikely.

Looks and sounds fantastic. A few gripes about the pinpoint attack accuracy needed, although I'll give it bonus points for the autosave.

Dragon’s Trap is a great game. I remember the attack timing being difficult but consequently satisfying (dunno if the new graphics might distract from the hit boxes). I love the original art. It always annoyed me when people would say the PC Engine version looks better - the PCE characters look generic compared to the Master System’s perfect charm. I feel similar about the remake to be honest.

Always struggled with the timing in WBML and this is the same. Understanding the boss patterns then timing the jumps is taking a few attempts.

I've been flipping between retro and modern on both graphics and sound and honestly - they've done a brilliant job and on a big old plasma the new stuff really shines. The only bit I don't like is how every character looks angry.

Yeah it’s that ‘edge’ they always add to redesigns. :roll:

I don’t hate the new look it’s just that the original is precious. I’ll probably buy it. :think:

I find WBML harder but I didn’t own it bitd.
