  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. £50 is probably the upper limit so something like the RS-97 looks perfect.
  6. 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?
  7. As far as i'm concerned all living things are hostile.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Another vote for Heave Ho. We play a bit of Road Redemption, simple, easy and has enough randomness to keep it entertaining. Plus sticking C4 to trucks doesn't get old too quickly. We still play Goldeneye (albeit emulated) with the occasional game of Track & Field on the N64.
  13. The rules don't need to be changed, the issue has been that as the speed of the game has increased an increasing number of poor decisions were being made. It was actually commentators and fans who started analysing every offside down to the last frame, arguably going against the original spirit or the rule, which was never intended to halt play because a striker was 1mm ahead of the last defender. I disagree that the system needs to have this level of accuracy either, the offside rule in rugby is only eyeballed by the referee or TV match official to make sure it isn't a clear and obvious advantage. I'd argue that if you get to the point where you're having to draw lines across the pitch then it goes against the spirit of the rule anyway.
  14. Sleeping Dogs is better than any GTA Men of War is the best RTS ever made Excite Truck is a better arcade racer than most arcade racers
