  1. I really like this game (MD version), had it as a kid but found the meetings with The Terminator very stressful 😅


    If you want to get further, try it on easy, you get the machine gun at the bottom of the first ladder rather than from behind the wheelie bot in the bottom left of the level. 

    I’ve completed this game dozens of times, but it’s very easy to slip up. The music and atmosphere capture the movie really well, even if you can blitz through the game in a little over 10 minutes.

  2. Looking back on the numbers for Ragnarok:


    just under 30k first week

    just under 40k after 2 weeks

    week 3 didn’t sell enough to make the top 10.



    11k week one

    sold less than 5800 week 2.


    So I’d say that’s a pretty resounding no.


    I think the CoD games do ok in Japan and Horizon Forbidden West has done just under 150k PS5 which is around 6% attach rate for physicals which seems reasonable.

  3. Hopefully they get to do V-V and Outzone at some point. Zero Wing and Hellfire are decent games, but not ones that get me really excited.

  4. Yeah the US market is just a monster. Even shipping from there is super expensive. Japan on the other hand is less accessible but much, much cheaper.

    I can’t vouch for eBay, but buying direct from Japanese sellers using a proxy, paying internal postage in Japan, fees to package and bundle the items, then onward shipping and taxes often still works out cheaper than buying directly in the UK on a lot of mid-priced games. This works out more so when buying in bundles and splitting shipping across all your items. 

    I spent most of my gaming budget over the last couple of years doing just this and have had some incredible deals. It’s not easy to see often, but these games in Japan when not being sold in obvious places to westerners are dirt cheap. You can pick up an X-Men vs. Street Fighter in box with RAM cart in ok condition for about 4500 yen if you’re willing to wait.

  5. 1 minute ago, spatular said:

    isn't the s-tribute stuff the saturn ports which don't seem well received so far? hopefully they've been fixed up/batsugun one is good anyway.

    Yeah, the emulator they use seems to have a few frames of lag by default that is added. If it’s released physically I’ll probably grab it, but if it’s download only I’ll do what I did with Elevator Action Returns and just stick to playing it on Saturn.

  6. We’re (PAL regions) actually in a bit of a dip from all time peak prices at the moment. Not sure we’ll get back to where it was pre-pandemic, but looking at average selling prices on pricecharting for a bunch of console libraries and also seeing (and buying) higher end games for a little less than they were previously.


    If you’re holding NTSC-U games at the moment then you’ve won the lottery, their prices have gone batshit and even with a dip on some systems, prices are stupidly high.

  7. Looking at my currently outstanding pre-orders, only three currently:

    1. Grimgrimoire Oncemore

    2. Rayz Arcade Chronology

    3. Shikigami no Shiro II

    I’ll probably give Redfall a go if it comes out on GP with a couple of buddies. Interested in Starfield as well.
