  1. Is he going to be prosecuted to the full extent of the jam?
  2. I've got Odama, didn't realise it had gotten so expensive either! I played it a bit when I got it (10 or so years ago, not when it was new) and it seemed like a bit of fun, but was pretty unresponsive and got difficult after a few stages. Played it a couple of times then just never went back to it. I think I'll set a Gamecube up when I get my games room sorted in a couple of months, might try it again then. My poor Gamecube just never got the love it should have. I bet my original one has less than 100 hours play on it and I got it new a couple of years after launch. Championship Manager on PC used to keep me off consoles, but when I did play on consoles it was on PES back then.
  3. I wouldn't have thought so. This is a spin off set in the past, not a mainline Yakuza game.

    It’s just a quirk, you use the combos for the Japanese version, RSG doesn’t take a kick harness so only uses 3 buttons. The US BIOS only lets you use 2 buttons.

    Radiant Silvergun was one of my most disappointing arcade purchases I ever made. I really don’t get the hype around it and Ikaruga, neither are the sort of shooters I like. Interesting tidbit though, if you put a Radiant Silvergun cart into an ST-V board with a US BIOS you only get 3 shot types 🤔
  6. It's quite expensive for a non-RGB unit, but the S-Video and even composite picture on those are superb compared to a consumer set.
  7. Cheers, sounds like more shitty behaviour then.
  8. I’m one of those who didn’t beat the 2nd boss in Bloodstained, thought it was boring. I backed the kickstarter for it as well and had to be patronised by that bellend community manager. All in all it left a pretty sour taste. I have so many games to play that if a game doesn’t have its hooks into me in 30 minutes there’s a good chance it’s never getting played again unless it’s a series I know I’ll love.
  9. I always used to gravitate to light gun games back when arcades had them. I love a bit of Time Crisis, Virtua Cop and Point Blank. Point Blank is one that my Mrs likes to play as well when we go to Arcade Club, so it gets bonus points for that. I’ve been buying quite a few light gun imports recently in anticipation of getting my new games room which will have a dedicated light gun CRT.
  10. It all depends on if they’re through hole caps or surface mounts. Surface mounts can be an utter twat, through holes just take a little patience. I don’t know of a list but the ones I mostly see complained about for caps are original PC Engine’s, PC Engine Duo (not R or RX), Mega CD2 and Game Gear. They can go on any console but those few seem particularly prone from my years of reading forums etc.
  11. My memories of the Saturn while it was current are very fleeting. Only one kid I knew had one, and he wasn't a close friend. The only time I remember really seeing Saturn games was in a concession in Debenhams around 1997 and when I used to buy Mega Drive games from Bowlers towards the end of the MD's life and a lot of the sellers had moved onto Saturn games.
  12. Try and stick it out until at least Necropolis (book 3), if you don’t like that one then the series isn’t for you.
  13. He’s done 15 books in the Gaunt’s Ghosts series, they are all somewhere between good and brilliant.
  14. It depends on the game and the PSU, but there’s a reasonable chance a modern switcher won’t be any good for it. It may need AC power or non-BAU voltages. All you can really do is make sure that nothing looks dodgy before you boot it. It’s likely it won’t do anything anyway.
  15. Yeah it's fuckin' dogshit, one of the worst games I've ever played. I enjoy most shitty fighting games, but this one takes the piss.
  16. I do fear for the Switch version, you often get a couple of ‘bonus’ frames of lag on there compared to PS. I wish I had my PS4 on hand to try it in that.
  17. Yeah I thought it was pretty bad. I'm currently using an old TV which is probably adding a few frames of lag as well. It's got such snappy controls on the MD you can definitely feel the difference here.
  18. How's everyone finding the input lag in this? Just played through Hyperstone Heist, a game I'm very familiar with and it felt like I could feel a little lag.
  19. The physical games I have pre-ordered are: Warhammer 40k: Shoota's, Blood and Teef (Switch) Sol Cresta (Import) (Switch) King of Fighters 98 Ultimate Match Final (Import) (PS4) RayZ Arcade Chronology (Import) (PS4) Cotton 16-Bit (Import) (PS4) Bullet Soul: Double Pack (Import) (Switch) Akai Katana Shin (Import) (PS4) So yeah, whole load of import shooters 😅 Edit, not yet ordered, but will likely get at or close to release: Warhammer 40k: Darktide and Rumble Fish 1&2
  20. Surely Sony can’t settle here though, would that not be an admission of ‘guilt’ potentially leaving them open in other countries? Or is that not how it works?
  21. Many a kidney beat was thrown during those celebrations 😂
  22. Nice little collection there! Might be worth giving those FIFA games a try. Those early ones were really fun.
