    So tempted to get this.  Hated Demon Souls.  Bloodborne was much better, but still too difficult for me.  Got about two thirds of the way through and lost interest. Is this going to convert me? The premise sounds amazing.  But I think I know the answer to this already, sadly. 

    OK. All your enthusiasm in this thread has made me cave and I've ordered. I've gone for the PS4 version (it's the only way I can play it), so the best version ;) . Its a pro too. You're all gits, and I hate you all. So looking forward to starting it.

    Nice, that was how we hoped people would experience it. On the original Commodore 64 version you had to play every level in order. Some players complained of being completely stuck which is why I added the chapters to this version, to try and avoid that frustration.

    I am playing them in order.  It's a great game to pick up and play for an hour or so to polish off a couple of levels. I love it when you get a solution that stumps you for 10 minutes.  It's usually something so obvious.

    Tesco is currently doing the OLED Switch for £50 off if you have a Clubcard, making it £259.99 in store. Oops, I may have just bought one…

    Good price.  But Tesco though.....

  5. I've been playing Banjo tonight.  I'm quite surprised how well it holds up.  The controls are very clunky and it'd be immeasurably better if I could get my hands on the fookin N64 controller. But it still plays really well and really enjoyed my evening. I forgot how funny and insulting it was.  Managed to 100% the first level.  Something I never managed on my first play through all those years ago. Just opened up the beach level and it's getting harder already.  The emulation looks fine and the pictures lovely and sharp with no lag that I can feel.  Mind you, I don't really notice it when it's there anyway.  Although I'm glad they're improving known issues that are bugging others. 

  6. Sorry for the spamming of this thread.  But I've heard so much great music recently. This cropped up today on my new favourite, Streetsounds. A huge slice of disco funk. I've never really given Shalamar a listen outside their big hits.  What a mistake.  

     

     

  7. Heard this on Street Sounds Radio the other day. It's a fantastic radio station. I'm aware of Willie Hutch, but this particular one has escaped me. Absolute class! Love the little riff when he's singing the chorus.

     

     

  8. I love Brit Soul, Jazz, Funk and Jazz Funk. Went to see Loose Ends at the Jazz cafe last weekend. Very good if a slightly erratic and disorganised set up. Played all the big hitters as you would expect. This was the highlight for me which was their (eventual) encore.

     

     

     

  9. It all started with a day on the beach at Camber Sands 1976 with my parents and my nan. The long, long, hot drought summer.  A visit to the Kit-Kat cafe on the beach saw my first sighting of a Pong Machine.  It was love at first sight. 

     

    The Trading Post in Dartford,  the whole sea fronts of Margate  and Southend were frequently visited.  The machines that burnt into my formative years were Missile Command, Robotron and Asteroids. All classics I still play to this day.  The smell of stale cigarettes, the haze from the smoke, the Day-Glo neon, the sound of the Gorf machine imploring you to "Insert Coin"... halcyon days. It truly was an assault on the senses.  

  10. Metroid Dread.  I prefer my gaming to be Nintendo.  I love their output.  I love Metroid, having played and completed all non hand held iterations. But Dread, I cannot get to grips with.  I don't mind tough games.  But this is just a stop start affair.  The EMMI's are a case in point.  Completely out of sync with the main game.  Add in the controls which require a level of dexterity I'm simply not capable of performing  most of the time and you get an exercise in frustration.  It's also incredible linear which surprised me. I ended up giving it to my daughter as a bonus Christmas present and she said that the controls were far too difficult.  A very un-Nintendo experience.

    They were definitely a must have item around that time.

     

     

    They also played this one as well. Which I loved. I knew somebody had posted it on here as I downloaded into my RLLMUK folder onto my phone. Which Hip Hop track basically ripped the breakdown from this?
