  1. Oh! Andy actually name-checked me! Swoon! Really interesting podcast, great work!
  2. Oh! Will definitely give this a listen! The Pit is one of my favourite early arcade games... it's infuriatingly addictive. As a bit of shameless self promotion, I ported The Pit to the Spectrum 48k earlier this year, in an effort to learn Z80 assembler. Had a huge amount of fun doing it (but ended up no better at the damned game!)
  3. I just played through Mario 64 on the Switch, coming at it basically fresh (I'd loaded it up before on emulators, but never actually played it). I ended up completing it with 120 stars, and really loved it. Honestly, the main problem you'll have is the camera, which is admittedly really rough. But if you can get passed that, the game itself is remarkably mature - Mario's moveset feels very familiar to that used in Odyssey, and some of the collect-em-up challenges are just sublime.
  4. Have to say, The Out is by far my favourite thing about the prog at the moment. This week's chapter was just incredibly well done! Trying to like End of Days, but it feels really half-hearted and low energy. The world doesn't feel in any actual danger like it did in Necropolis and Judgement Day, and I don't really understand why the Ichabod character is even there... maybe it will come clear after this week's chapter.
  5. Thanks! That ran fine. Wow, there's a lot of arcade cores now, eh?
  6. I've been neglecting updates to my MiSTer recently... I think the last time I did it, I reorganised my arcade roms into the "new" format. So what's the current best method for updating? Still the update script? Does that get all the various different sources of arcade cores? Does it get the roms as well?
  7. Yeah, it's really good. Kind of reminds me of Halo Jones in tone. It's also very easy to follow, which a lot of non-Dredd 2000AD stories tend not to be, especially in the 6 pages bite sized format. I'm thinking mostly of The Order, which is just baffling. I have no idea what is happening or who anyone is from panel to panel. Might as well just flash up 20 or so random images.
  8. Odd choice, but I've been playing through "James Bond 007: Bloodstone", which I picked up for a couple of quid. It's by Bizarre Creations, and the car driving bits really feel like PGR at times. Otherwise, it's a surprisingly good third person/driving game. It's only about six hours long, which is pretty much how I like my narrative shooters, and manages to feel incredibly cinematic in parts - especially the driving.
  9. Oh, that's easy... "never". But I'll look at them, and that's what counts
  10. The raging fever of the irrational collector takes hold... About twenty quid of games, and a mounting sense of panic about where I'll store them all.
  11. I've recently set up my 360 (an 'E' I bought a few years ago, just in case) and started digging through a bunch of games I've been buying on ebay. Man, this really was the greatest console ever, wasn't it? It nailed everything so well - like leaderboards, achievements, demos for every game. In fact, lots of what it seemed to get right almost feels as though it's been forgotten since. The control pad feels great, the updates take seconds, everything just feels so good... Not only that, the games still look great. I think, if I was still playing 360 games, I wouldn't feel too hard do
  12. Thanks Laine! Left a tip Always like to get the turnip business out of the way! Can enjoy the week now!
  13. I bought one, and use it wired into my network. To be honest, the difference between that setup and wifi on a laptop is night and day.
  14. I think they originally intended it to be one game added per month, but every month so far has had at least two. Also, games tend to hang around for a few months, so new subscribers will always see 4 or 5 available to claim when they sign up. How many is there at the moment? 6 or something?
  15. Another slight misunderstand (if I'm reading you right): you don't choose ONE of the offered pro games per month, you claim them ALL. You basically get the two or three games as part of your pro sub each month.
