  1. That was shit. It felt like series 7 onwards of Red Dwarf, just totally missing the point of the originals. It felt like the Matrix games, that's how shit it was.
  2. Fake cheese, fake bacon, strangely mushy. I bloody love them. My hands are covered in cheese dust. Delicious cheese dust.
  3. It's because whoever is in charge isn't a designer. They're not saying "What impact will adding this mechanic have on the rest of the world?", they're just adding things they think sound cool or unique. Then these systems are exploited, or interact in unexpected ways, and break the game. Star Citizen is the antithesis of good game design. Adding dumb minutiae rather than focussing on the core loop.
  4. I would. Cash out, retire. No more work, no more worrying about maintenance. Just a big holiday.
  5. It seems strange to buy something that was founded on the basis of a reasonably seamless mass-migration, after something happened on the previous forum.
  6. There's also Near's scans which have just been released. https://www.patreon.com/posts/nears-original-57250631
  7. Back when I was a kid, jackpots in the local club were £75, with it being 5p a spin. I used to hunt for pound coins down the back of the benches, then go into the empty function room to play the machine there. By the time I was an adult it was all 25p a go, with £15 jackpots. Sod that!

    Bunch of cool Star Trek games now available on GOG https://www.gog.com/partner/startrek Elite Force! Bridge Commander! The rest!
  10. This times a million. It's a triumph of art over all, especially gameplay considerations.
  11. I quicksave like a madman while feeling quite bad about it.
  12. This is very well balanced, really ahead of its time. I remember playing this as a kid and thinking it was the naughtiest thing ever, like it should be banned or something.
  13. What kind of psychopath plays Ridge Racer Revolution with the behind car view?
  14. Decided to watch the NZ season 2 because of you lot. Absolutely crying laughing at so many moments. When Urzila asked Paul if he wanted kids... Fantastic.
  15. Yeah very excited about this. It's so easy to pick up and play.
  16. I only recently started playing my Switch again, and even though the buttons are the "right" (Snes) way round, it still trips me up after years of Xbox pads.
  17. Unless you set up a pass through to your GPU (hard), you'll have poor performance in a VM. As people say, Proton is your best bet, unless you want to play games with anti cheat. I applaud the move to Linux though, it's a good OS.
  18. Terminator was surprisingly decent - great, in fact, if you're a fan of the series. As a Robocop fan I'll be all over this.
  19. I bought Ecstatica from my local games shop, and the man laughed at me for some reason. I thought I'd accidentally bought some sort of porn game or something, I felt quite embarrassed.
  20. Dosbox X is also a good shout if you want to set up a virtual Win95 gaming instance
  21. Starship Titanic works on ScummVM now, if anyone's interested in trying it again (it's not as obtuse as I remember, but you do need a guide).
  22. I'm excited for it having played the demo, but I can very much appreciate it's only going to appeal to people who played it originally. It's unchanged essentially.
  23. Now they're bringing this to Shield, I should be the perfect audience for it. Don't have to turn on my pc, perfect for a quick go while not busy, lovely. But I just looked at the price plans and it's a hard nope from me. The free games are... underwhelming, and having to pay full price to buy a game to stream is ludicrous. I should be champing at the bit to play this, but I'm totally turned off by the pricing model.
  24. If they bring this to Android TV/Shield I'll be all over it. I already tried it sideloaded, and it worked, but official support would be amazing.
  25. I played through CE with the anniversary graphics and didn't mind them at all, but then I've never been fussed about that kind of thing.
