  1. I'm playing Mario Kart 8 fairly regularly on WiiU - 7 years later and I get full lobbies often.
  2. I think our definition of "easy replacement" vary, although knowing it's like that on a PS3 I'd rank that as impossible. A bit of a side note - but I look forward to the future discussion on how Sony has soldered it's internal SSD onto the PS5 motherboard - another part of the console that definitely has a limited life and will potentially require replacement (Series S/X hasn't soldered it so 2-0 Microsoft!)
  3. I wouldn't call unscrewing the motherboard and having to replace the thermal paste in the process "refreshing easy". I refer to the Wii/WiiU as the way this should be designed: My hot-takes on this topic are: - Its slightly rubbish if I somehow lose access to digital content but I recognize that it is a potential risk and that platform holders hold all the cards, I'm buying a license and I accept this risk with digital - There should be absolutely no scenerio even possible that a physical game doesn't work with functional hardware - this is shitty by Sony
  4. I don't think Microsoft would have much interest in the Enix side and even less so than the Taito side. I know you are coming at this from the Eidos side and sure, those western IPs probably have more of a chance again, but I think it'll be to the detriment of the wider portfolio. Do you see Microsoft interested in keeping Itagaki Street going? I don't trust Sony either, particularly as they've gutted their interesting output from Japan Studio.
  5. For the sake of any IP that isn't Final Fantasy, I hope it's Tencent. Or none of them. None of them is the best outcome.
  6. HOTD remake is looking as good as Panzer Dragoon remake (ie: not very good). I know game dev is difficult, and the budget looks ultra low, but I really don't think Forever Entertainment is up to the task on these No atmosphere whatsoever. EDIT: compare and contrast - the sound design, the blood splatters, the sky. No grit at all in the remake.
  7. Is any of the DLC for Everybody's Golf Vita worth picking up? I assume the DLC courses don't have any single player content?
  8. Day One! Interesting that the new music tracks are Tee Lopes.
  9. My top tip is to play traditionally. That is get all dots before picking up the fruit (this gives you a permanent speed boost). Also keep the selection on 'speed' as you'll move faster from a power pill and then switch to 'train' when you eat the ghost train. Won two games back to back with this setup.
  10. It's better than Mario 35 but not feeling anywhere near close to Tetris 99. The problem is pacing - Tetris has a good ebb and flow, tension and release that keeps things interesting and small mistakes are not punished immediately. This is just fast all of the time, and Mario was too slow. It doesn't leave much time for strategy. Still this does mean games are over really quickly!
  11. Gah. I'm only reading the even numbered posts today it seems!
  12. Suspect that is unlikely with Bomberman announced for all platforms: This looks like it's Arika-developed again to me. I watched some footage of the Stadia exclusive-one and it looked confusing and strange. This looks so much simpler and refined. Also let's hope it's more Tetris 99 than Mario 35!
  13. @acidbearboyYou can't buy through the webstore anymore and has to be through the console. And PS1 and PS2 classics are really hard to search for! For example need to search for Megami, Persona and Devil Saga to find those all those games. Haunting Ground did get a PAL release but as with most of these PS2 games it is already going for quite a bit of money.
  14. I've started to make some purchases. Its worth checking all store-fronts as they all have different things. Play Asia does digital codes for credit and works out around just under £10 for $10 or 1000 yen. I'm mainly concentrating on picking up PS2 Classics as these are still in a place which doesn't make it easy to emulate (Series S/X through Retroarch but I suspect some issues, or a modded PS4 which is perfect to emulate but an expensive option) All these pretty much work out at £10 each given the way PSN credit works with top-ups Castlevania: Lament of Inn
  15. You need someone great at the helm though. His influence within Sega was pretty large during the Dreamcast days The fact that PSO really was that title which was an embodiment of everything they tried to achieve with that console, is so impressive. It wouldn't have happened without him and out of all the Sonic Team games it is definitely the one with the widest influence on games. Basically - I disagree!
