  1. Yeah, I've spent some more time on Rise today and it's good fun! Reminds me a bit of Hydro Thunder Hurricane and the Challenge mode is nicely put together. The lack of polish does appear everywhere (menus are fairly dreadful, it doesn't explain itself very well and the music is pretty poor) but the actual driving is excellent. And as you say, the boost system is rather smart.
  2. I've played about half an hour. Initially it does seem very cheaply put together (outside of the actual races themselves) but I really enjoyed it and want to play more. I'll no doubt play a fair bit over the weekend so will give a more informed opinion once I can.
  3. I bought Rise: Race to the Future, VOEZ and Assault Android Cactus in the end. They are all very agreeable. (I've actually already got Cactus on the PS4 but it's very good and you all should buy it too) My other sale recommendation would be VA-11 HALL-A. A lovely visual novel that's in part about booze, which I imagine would be rather timely for most of us.
  4. Oooh, that does look good. Never heard of it, thanks for the heads up.
  5. Big Picture Mode in particular was one of my favourite bits of the magazine since I started reading it twenty odd years ago. Also enjoyed and sympathised with all the dance music references and 'what the fuck have I done', lovable eye-rolling about parenthood. Best of luck!
  6. I've been a little bit tentative on it after being bitten by MUSYNX; loved the mechanics but found the music completely dreadful aside from five tracks. I know one man's meat is another man's mank, but presumably the music in Voez is good..? It's part of the reason I'm leaning more toward Hexagroove really. I'm quite the fan of reaching for the lasers and it just seems more likely to suit my tastes.
  7. Got some major choice paralysis on what to pick up. Fancy Hexagroove, Voez, Assault Android Cactus, Space Harrier and Fantasy Zone on the SEGA Ages, the Konami Arcade and Contra classics collections, Demon's Tilt, Yooka-Laylee and Bloodstained. Either going to buy none and regret it or buy way too many and regret it.

    That's what I'd like; a lovely little compilation, that's available physically so I can easily share it with the children. I suspect I'll be disappointed though. (Relatively disappointed, I mean. This is still magnificent news)

    That's absolutely insane.

    Ah, sneakily hidden within its own thread. Thanks mate.

    Is there any discussion about Shinsekai on the forum? I've noticed you and I have pretty similar tastes so your endorsement has raised my eyebrows.
  12. I've been absolutely loving this and am fairly bemused by the lukewarm reaction in here. I'm getting the same kind of rush that I get from Geometry Wars or Nex Machina. I'm really enjoying the platforming too!

    Name That Game

    It's not, no. In fact it's almost the opposite and a 'level start' fanfare..! Big extra clue
