    Didn’t manage a decent bike game in that time though. Suzuki and Ducati efforts are both poor to middling.


    I actually played Ducati for the first time tonight, I kind of enjoyed how the bikes handled, however, the tracks are pretty uninspired. Watched a few reviews afterwards, seems to be universally disliked.

    And, finally, I can't really go without mentioning the classic of a hundred lunch breaks, Full Tilt Pinball - or, to be more precise, Space Cadet, the table from it that was bundled with Windows 2000 through XP. Assuredly the table I've spent the most time on in any game. I'm still rubbish at it.


    I think what we're all learning today is that I have terrible taste in pinball games.


    My first ever experience with video game pinball other than Sonic Spinball was Space Cadet, i must have played that game for hours! I now need to go and have a look and see if i can find a way of playing it today....


    I'm pretty sure i was horrific at it back in the day, wonder if that'll be different now.

    - Pinball FX.  Loved this to bits.  Really well designed tables.  Some of the early tables were pretty obviously 'inspired' by real-life tables with near identical layouts, but later tables really brought some cool new features that in many cases I've considered converting to real life mechanisms.  The leaderboards and ability to compete online really helped this game to shine, though it does become an endurance marathon to really get to the top of the online tables in many cases, with some games going on for literally hours at a time.  In the last year they've acquired the Bally/Williams licence, so have started to emulate many of the classic real tables.







    Pinball FX3 is one of my most played games on my Nintendo Switch. Some of the tables are incredible, would say my personal favourites are Walking Dead, Family Guy and Bob's Burgers. It's a real shame they haven't been able to bring the South Park ones over as I would have to loved to have given them a go!



    This thread made me do this...

    For years after I didn't really play anything apart from True Pinball on the Dreamcast about 10 years ago which was a lot more modern in style compared to the others and has that cool 3D look about it. Remember seeing it on the PS1 years back but don't think I played it then.


    This is one of my most played Dreamcast games, don't think i could ever part with it! Never played the PS1 version so not sure if it's any good or there are any differences. I would doubt it apart from maybe better graphics.


    I need to mention this one as well while I'm here...



  4. For some reason I've always loved Video Game Pinball games, I wouldn't say I'm particularly good at them but they're as addictive as anything I've ever played. I just wanted to know what Pinball games of yesteryear you've played and hopefully enjoyed.


    I own every Pinball game released on cartridge from the Gameboy to the DS. I finally managed to get Pinball of the Dead from here (Thanks AcidBearBoy)


    There's some great ones, bizarre ones and just out right bad ones. Pacman Pinball for GBA, I'm looking at you.


    So uh, yeah. PINBALL.

  5. Rebel Clash is out in a few days! Anybody going to be collecting the set? I haven't been particularly fussed with the base Sword and Shield set, some decent cards but nothing great. I'm thinking about getting into the online game so if anybody wants a few battles or whatever, give me a shout. I'm trying to resurrect the thread :lol:


    My most recent openng, some of my best tbh. Absolutely love Generations!!!

    Pikachu N64 for life!


    Even if I'm about to give away you flipped that image.





    Figured most people would realise anyway! :lol:


    It's one of my favourite console variants, there was also the Stadium one for N64 which I'm trying to find for a decent price at the moment. It doesn't look as good as the Pikachu one though!

  7. My most recent video, really happy with the cards I got! For anybody still collecting, Tesco have all of their tins on sale at the moment, think you get about a fiver off.


    Did anybody get lucky with a Shining Charizard in the Hidden Fates set? :D


  8. Thinking about picking up a used Vita on Ebay, just wondering what I should be looking for as I've never owned one before. 


    What are the batteries like? Can you buy new ones and are they easy to replace if need be? 

  9. Recently bought a 2DS XL as haven't played a 3DS in years and I knew there was a huge amount of games i had missed out on. Oh and the fact a lot if the games can now be picked up cheaply helps. 



    I do have a question though, I want to give the Professor Layton series a go, where should I start? Worth going straight into the 3DS titles or going back to the DS?

    Looking at those photos, I recognise you!


    I always used to go to Gamestation in Merry Hell, and I live in Stourbridge so god knows how many games you will have sold to me over the years!


    Gamestation in Stourbridge is now a CEX, yes?


    I also live in Stourbridge and can confirm, it's a CEX. Talking of Merry Hill, they used to have the Game in Debenhams as well. Bought my Gameboy SP and Pokemon Sapphire. Great times. 


    I don't ever go in Game Merry Hill anymore, never a pleasant experience. Especially the downstairs one.


    - Walk in shop, get jumped on by numerous staf members asking if I came In the store for anything in particular. I know they're told to do it but getting interrupted every couple of minutes while browsing is extremely off putting. 


    - Check the games and see every game is overpriced. Obviously.


    - If I do decide to buy something, I get asked about 5 questions before completing the purchase. Last time they explained to me how easy it was to break a Switch game. 


    So yeah the same experience as pretty much everybody in this thread before me. I much prefer CEX, even though i know not everybody would agree. 

  11. I genuinely don't know how people can put hundreds of hours into completing a game. I just can't ever find the time to do it so I rarely bother with certain genres such as RPGs anymore. I bought Xenoblade 2 and although I was enjoying It, I'd go days without playing and end up losing interest. 


    So how does everybody make time for gaming?


    Since I moved into my first house with the missus six months ago, I really struggle to find time... and this is without kids! 


    Maybe I'm just not trying hard enough. To play games that is. Not have kids.
