  1. Now that France have lost the opportunity to win the Grand Slam it feels like it would just be better to cancel the whole thing and split the prize money equally between all of the teams. By the time the replays are sorted (assuming October) it will be close to the next 6N than this one.
  2. There is some overreaction here, the ref was pretty consistent, even when it benefited Wales (calling back advantage from knock-ons that any northern hemisphere ref would have called over). Farrell was a bellend in the first half but I have no sympathy for lazy runners trying to block kick chasers getting pushed over (I assume you're partly referring to the Farrell push on Biggar), fair game in my view. What would disappoint me as a Wales fan is that after losing the 3rd scrum to France a few weeks ago they then go and lose a maul against 13-man England when there was still an outside chance of getting a victory. From an England perspective the attack is starting to look sharper (I assume the new coach is having an impact), the scrum looks a lot more dangerous (again, new coach having an impact I hope) and the defence is as fierce as ever. They seemed to read a lot of the Wales attacks quite well, as they did against Ireland, not over committing but stopping them making yards. Discipline went to shit towards the end of the second half, as they have been prone to before. Can't say I agreed with the red card initially but it was definitely the right decision.
  3. I remember levelling up one of his legs to the point where I could roundhouse kick enemies into the next generation.
  4. I'd definitely get Body Harvest, i'd throw these into the ring as well; Wetrix Track & Field (least janky of all the retro tappy tap athletic games) WWF No Mercy (+ Virtual Pro Wrestling 2) ISS 2000 (with the story mode?) Magical Tetris Challenge Star Wars - Shadows of the Empire (I know this gets a bad rep generally but I enjoyed it's attempts to mix up different gameplay types) Micro Machines (Better than the various other versions around at the time) A lot of the sports games were really good (at the time!), NBA Courtside and Quarterback Club spring to mind. EDIT: Hybrid Heaven as well, I really enjoyed it with a turn-based combat system just about good enough to make up for the slightly dull surroundings.

  6. There is a really good 'All Killer, No FIller' list on BYOAC that does a good job of filtering out a lot of the rubbish.
  7. I think Rugby lacks the problem Football is having because it has never been driven, by managers, fans or otherwise to analyse things like offside to the mm. Offside is simply eyeballed in Rugby, not a stupid fucking overlay to be seen. I think that is partly because Rugby, maybe, tries to rule by the spirit of the laws rather than the exact definition which is something I think Football has long forgotten.
  8. Part of the problem with RGB versus composite is that people may have bought an RGB cable but it's entirely possible their TV didn't support it, or the port they plugged it into didn't support it. Or the console itself didn't support it. I've seen (and experienced) this a few times. I think most people would agree that the entire N64 library has aged badly (Sin & Punishment and WWF No Mercy aside for me) but it's more how it developed 3D gameplay. A lot of 3D PS1 games are really 2.5D and even now I can remember my mind being utterly blown playing Super Mario 64 for the first time in a way that no PS1 game ever came close to. EDIT : Should throw an actual opinion in - Gran Turismo is the most boring racing series ever created.
  9. £50 is probably the upper limit so something like the RS-97 looks perfect.
  10. Want to get my partner something that will play GB & GBA games so nothing too flash but really unsure what to go far with so many options available. Form factor not hugely important but would be good if it looked like either of the two. Any recommendations?
  11. As far as i'm concerned all living things are hostile.
  12. I've wanted to own (and build) an arcade machine for years, starting sourcing bits throughout last year and now have a rough design to work to. Should have it done before the summer! What I really want though is a working F-Zero AX setup (not the full machine!). I know you can get the game in F-Zero GX but it's just not the same. By all accounts this is all pretty doable, I just need to do a bit more research to make sure I get the right parts.
  13. If it's on the switch you could just setup a new user so it would be completely separate. I've been playing this game for over 18 months now (done a lot of the base game, and some of the DLC) and already racked up 120 hours, easily the longest I have ever spent on any single player game. It's just such a difficult game to get bored of, check Hero's Path, find an unexplored area, stick down some markers and on my way! Detour off to anything else that looks interesting on the way and then i've spent 3 hours playing the game with pretty much no progress. And it was 3 hours well spent! I also constantly forget how good the soundtrack is on this game, I spent an hour last night with the Kara Kara Bazar music on loop while doing some work. The way it uses silence and gaps in the music just works so well. TLDR : Still fucking love this game.

    Is the wireless an issue because people are still stuck on g/n? I appreciate the steam links run locally but I never had any problem with them running wireless on AC.
  15. Not sure why this post was negged as it seems pretty accurate to me, when everything works (and it does most of the time) it's great but when something does goes go wrong it's a fucking nightmare. I'd love to be able to play Raiden V but I get some error message that I cannot seem able to resolve so it sits unplayed, an issue I have simply never had on a console. Pairing controllers is always an interesting experience as well. I'm also going to stick to my guns on the Steam UI being a steaming pile of shit, whatever format it's in. The caveat here is that my only other platform is a Switch so I do not have any experience with the PS4/Xbone. I say all this as someone with a gaming PC under the TV who has at various times been almost exclusively gaming on a PC with a controller. In the last two years though i've converted almost entirely to the Switch, it's a much quicker way of playing indie games and updates don't (always) have to be installed before playing a game. There are still a few things I use the PC for, and the fact I have an AV amp next to it means i'm not going to save any space getting rid of it. If it won't run Cyberpunk though (it's a gen2 i5 and 1070) then I may well move it on to new pastures.
