    I play video games, I buy and listen to music of all sorts, I mess around on an acoustic guitar, I own video capture and editing software, I randomly dance around at any opportunity, spend time out shopping for more music/games/film or seeing folk...the usual, really.

  1. I’d jump straight to Royal - from first impressions it seems to do everything the original did and add extra bits. I completed Kamoshida’s palace last night but didn’t hang around to find every Will Seed, so... oops. Also some of the stuff you get from having a vanilla P5 save present will disappear fast if you’re like me!
  2. I think the first game definitely had a bigger cultural impact... but nobody reviewing it at the time had that kind of foresight. The scripted, set-piece driven gameplay is a staple of today’s shooters, but in the 90s few games went as far with it as HL1.
  3. Woo, my copy has just arrived (courtesy of ShopTo). I’m technically still “at work” at the moment but the weekend entertainment is sorted... (Also we’re kind of planning for a house move over here so I intend to binge on as much of this as possible before everything is in boxes... )
  4. I’m nominating Namco’s Metro-Cross: Maybe one of the original auto runners, this arcade game also ended up on some 8-bit micros, so there may be some interesting versions to try...
  5. I haven't really been back to this in a while - distracted with other bits and pieces. Also I think I'll have unlearned a lot of what I picked up earlier! One thing I do notice is that there are a lot of regular enemies that are real bullet-sponges, even if I have a bunch of options and the powered-up shot. The segmented wriggly thing that follows you across half of stage two, for instance - it chases me up to the top of the screen and I die to stuff I can't see I also had a little look at the Game Boy Pop'n Twinbee game, but good luck trying to determine bell abilities on a monochrome display!
  6. Paper Beast is out today: https://store.playstation.com/en-gb/product/EP3265-CUSA15356_00-PAPERBEAST047011
  7. A new interview appeared online yesterday: https://square-enix-games.com/en_GB/news/final-fantasy-vii-remake-interview Oh, and there are new bits in Shinra HQ:
  8. So everyone's going back up the slide if they fail to get enough momentum to jump into Rasputin and KO their guardian, right? Right? I can't decide whether it's as fun as the seraph tower event or better...
  9. Syndicate Shadowrun Fatal Labyrinth Rogue Gauntlet Exile Paradroid All games with a nice bit of longevity (or depth) to keep you distracted...
  10. You can think of it as a frontend for the FBAlpha emulator where it provides rooms for games where people can meet up and start matches. You have to register a username and password (it's free) but that's about it. Also, it helps to have a recognisable username - mine is qazimod. My PS+ sub has lapsed and I don't have 30th Anniversary Collection on PC (yet), but if anyone's self-isolating and wants to run sets...
