  1. January 1. - Summoner 2 (PS2) 15/01/2021 I really fell off this thread last year for the first time since I started recording my completions and part of it was due to building up a back log of text I needed to write but ultimately couldn't face. Therefore I've started afresh for the new year. At some stage last year I decided to go back and return to my PS3 for a few titles and that then led me to go back further and start buying for and resurrecting my original PS2 again. I've been through Siren which was strange, extremely slow paced but fascinating and Drakengard 2 a
  2. Final Fantasy Adventure -> Secret of Mana -> Secret of Mana 2. Known also as Seiken Densetsu 1, 2 & 3. Id call the first one a secret prequel as it was a long time before I was even aware of the connection and they are very different games entirely. Still though there’s a connection. I remember knowing that Secret of Mana was called Seiken Densetsu 2 way back but didn’t know why It was part 2 in the Japanese title. There was another series that i came across with a similar history and that was the other gameboy FF game FInal Fantasy Legend which has 3 s
  3. I knew there was a thread somewhere I made years ago on Summoner! I thought I'd resurrect it because I’ve just gone and bought Summoner 2 with me being on a PS2 game playing spree for the last few months. For some reason I thought the sequel wasn’t regarded that well but I must have been wrong unless I’m thinking of another thread where someone preferred the first. I fired it up and started the game last night and while I initially struggled to find the inspiration continue beyond the first scene, I’ve persevered. Only a few hours in but it’s bringing back
  4. I was thinking about creating a thread just like this over the last couple of weeks or so but glad someone else had already done so. I’ve been pretty off with my regular updating of the completed games but this thread allows me to summarize the year. My GOTY is a very close toss up between two titles but I’m going to go for Horizon Zero Dawn for its really engrossing story which had that Mass Effect style of theme to it especially much later on in the game. Initially though just the whole gameplay, cinematic, graphics and gorgeous world was enough to really make it a standout
  5. Listening to the show. I’ve spotted a mistake. Around 22 mins in there’s a conversation about that ball game which repeats almost so seamlessly I wasn’t sure if it was me. The same 30 seconds or so repeats three times I think.
  6. I’ve been fully immersed into the world of ps2 recently myself. Spent a fair while playing through Siren which I mentioned earlier in this thread and finished finally the other day. I’ve since picked up a few new games such as Cold Fear, Gunbird, Vampire Night (another Namco lightgun game not mentioned earlier among the other ones talked about) and one I’ve been after for a while but never got it till now, Drakengard 2. The BIN £50 price tag on eBay was putting me off but I won a bid at £28. I have the first game I went through years ago. As for my controller issues, I’ve got an o

    I did play beyond my last post and I think I got very far into Farewell as I did a lot of screens with the wave dash which I absolutely hated but eventually made progress and got used to it from the first few screens of its introduction and really pushed on a fair ways. There was one screen with a rising platform and a spring board surrounded by spikes which I stopped at although it wasn’t because I’d spent so much time but because I’d struggled then suddenly got the urge to play another game. It was a hard screen but I felt inconsistent when I kept trying to pull off an initial k
  8. This might explain why it happened to me once while playing Bravely Default last year, the first game I got for it. I remember the screen going off randomly and not being able to get it back to the game again.
  9. Thanks for reminding me. I downloaded that rom file back when it was mention on here 4 years ago or so but never got around to panting it. I’ve recently got hold of the 3DS game of it and will have to check out both.
  10. Yeah that collection I got was the first time I’d gone for one.
  11. I never owned a GBA at the time but did borrow one briefly in 2002 ish to play Castlevania: Circle of the Moon and really struggled to get the lighting just right in order to see. The GBA : SP was the solution albeit not quite as ergonomic but had a proper back light. I think I remember also coming across an attachment to put handles on the SP and thinking that would solve the handling problem and be the way forward. In the end I never got one until my GBA micro about 7 years ago or so. That’s an ergonomic nightmare but has the best screen. I’ve hardly used it at all.
  12. Are you getting that new one that’s on Strictly Limited? Cozmic Revelation. I bought that Cozmic one you have top left from SL last year think it’s the one on the top left. I say I think because I haven’t yet taken it out of the delivery box. It was purely an impulse at the time. And now this new collection for the same price is up and it’s making me want to do the same again. Probably won’t though.
  13. I’ve fired up my ps2 for the first time in about 7 years or so last night and been playing Siren for the first time. It’s hard slow and clunky but it’s quite the survival horror game indeed. I remember my official pad pad giving me me jip before and had the fun of playing a game like this while occasional random button presses interfered like a poltergeist. Tried talking it apart to look but I can’t really see what’s wrong with it. I have another pad but that one is an unofficial one which works ok but some of the buttons are a bit sticky on action and aren’t reliable unless press
