  1. The only genres I'm very unlikely to play these days are: MOBA/MMORPG - I don't have the time to commit to these and just dropping in and getting annihilated is no fun at all. Sports Sims - I still love footie games that aren't straight up sims but I've no time for the FIFA's and Pro Evo's of this world anymore (or EA FC and eFootball whatever shite they're called). Exceptions are made here for combat sports, although I prefer the old UFC games to the new ones with a million mechanics to learn. 3D Platformers that aren't Mario - I just don't like them, I find them tedious and always have done. I'm not even that keen on the Mario ones, but I can get a little enjoyment from them. Horror games - I don't want to need a spare pair of pants on hand when I'm trying to relax playing games. Genres that haven't had much attention aside from the above in the past few years: JRPG's - I love a game where I can constantly improve my stats etc. but I've not played much in the way of JRPG's recently due to time constraints and possibly the fear of starting one only to realise I think it's crap after I've sunk 50 hours into it. Racing Sims - I spend a little time on the Forza games now and again but I never got in to the GT series or other sims really. FPS - I got tired of them probably 6-8 years ago and have only dipped in a little since. They can be fun but there's other genres I prefer to spend my time with.

    That's a lot of shmup for your money in any of those releases.

    Drainus is available physically on Strictly Limited Games. There's a 15% discount as well for the new few hours.
  4. They had a black label copy of SoTN in my local CEX today at £400. I didn’t look close but could see the cover was bent and the manual in poor condition from behind the glass.
  5. I used to subscribe, dipped in for a month when Turtles Shredders Revenge went on there but ultimately cancelled again. I always paid full price for it. I found there wasn’t all that much on there for me, and the lack of new releases meant it wasn’t worth it to me. I can certainly see the value for others, but I’m also a collector so end up buying stuff anyway.
  6. Lady Decade sits on 116 patrons at £619 per month. I think I put the numbers a couple of months back in this thread, sure she was around £100 more per month. Edit: October 11th she was on 132 Patrons for £771 per month.
  7. Not much, THGM and LD have deleted several thousand tweets each and lost a few patreon supporters.
  8. Great trailer, really looking forward to this.
  9. I’ve got 3 ‘big’ games going at the moment. I often play retro as well just when I fancy a quick blast on something rather than having to focus on a story.
  10. The bit where the flying bastards come in? Just camp in the bottom right corner and grenade them to death, works best with Jad as his grenades are proximity.
  11. This is good news. This is one of the PCB's I was really sad to see go when I sold a load of arcade stuff. My second ever arcade 1CC. Hopefully we're not going to victims of double digit frames of lag on this one, you do need to be surprisingly precise in parts on EAR.

    I always thought IIX was probably the best arrange mode on any of the CAVE 360 releases and there's some incredible arrange modes. I still think the base arcade game is a bit poo though 😅 There's so many good shooters on the 360, even discounting the CAVE games. Wish I'd bought Sakura Flamingo Archives back in the day though, I think it's the only one that's eluded me and it's so bloody pricey now
  13. Yeah it's not particularly rare, but it's definitely super sought after and worth a good chunk of money.
  14. Changing to Japanese changes the region of the games but not the games list. Useful for Bare Knuckle 3 of course because the western version is ludicrously difficult in comparison.

    Not too bad considering the shite you get in some special editions.

    What do you get in the Cotton collectors edition? I just went for the regular release.
  17. Watch Dogs, what a fucking turd that was.
  18. I've played Nightstriker before on PS1 where it doesn't exactly look pretty, but the Mega CD version might as well be a headache simulator, it's bloody awful to look at!
  19. First impressions here are good as well. The controller isn't quite the same as an original in sponginess, but it's a good approximation. Changing the language to Japanese gives you the more playable version of SoR3 as well which is nice.
  20. Mine has arrived and wow it really is a small box it’s come in.
  21. My favourites are the Magical Drop series and Money Puzzle Exchanger. You can get them on PS1 if Neo Geo is a bit much price wise. If you like MPE then there’s a really obscure arcade game called Moudya you should be able to find in MAME.
