  1. We've been playing it every evening since release - it's an absolute blast. I love arcade racers, so it's good to have a proper one released. You can play the whole game in multiplayer, campaigns and all. Tons of unlocks and difficulties to open up. It's not terribly skilful obviously, but it's brilliant fun.
  2. I didn't have a ZX81 - but played one every weekend and all summer through the 80s at my cousin's. I had a Commodore Plus/4 and later C64, but loved them all equally. I have actually had a few goes on a C5. Sandown IOW had an outdoor amusement area with big slides/crazy golf etc and they replaced the quad bikes with C5s for a couple of years on the track that went round and under the big slides. Great days.
  3. Cruisin Blast - what a game. if you want ridiculous arcade fun, this will do the job nicely. Great handling, unlockables and great fun. It doesn't have the skill base of Outrun II/Daytona/Sega Rally - but it's a rush and pure arcade craziness.
  4. Bought! English countryside and some metal detecting? Perfect.
  5. Art of Rally is £7.20 from the South Africa eshop. Having been waiting for Rush Rally and playing an hour of that, after seeing the poor feedback for AoR - actually enjoying it - handling is challenging, but fun.
  6. Bought it on iOS last night and it comes out on Switch today too - will get it on that too. Buying both - Still half the price of a poor conversion of Art of Rally.
  7. PC Outrun 2/Coast to Coast - not available any more. Will I be able to find a copy and add this to Steam somehow and it be available in the deck? I'll be able to emulate my Xbox/PS2/PSP versions at a minimum, I suppose.
  8. Yep, I have it. Had a go through the events last night - think it's great for everyone... but less for me. I like the track and field events that have been done ad infinitum for the last 40 years. This is the first game that concentrates on other sports more. It's a nice package and we'll get into it, but a handful of track and field is disappointing for me. Nothing beats the mighty London 2012 game. Absolute pinnacle of Olympics games (outside Track and Field and Hyper Sports obvs)
  9. Boxing Story is my fave after Game Dev. Got most of the economic sim/sport sims - Mega Mall, Horse, GP, Baseball etc - they're all good, very similar though.
  10. Got Mario and Sonic 2020. Played it once... nothing to do with the quality/fun, just toooo many games. Will be getting this too - played the demos that came out last year, thought it was really good. Love Track and Field/Olympic games. London 2012 on 360 is fave of the modern era.
  11. Power is set by the downswing. if you want backspin, you just flick a little bit up. You don't have to get back to the dot for power, as you have already set that. I found it tricky at first, but can backspin and have the required power, now I've got my head around the system.
  12. Thanks for alerting us to this. Paid no attention to Apple Arcade since free month at the beginning. Just resubscribed... and got a month's free.
  13. Yes, I was going to suggest A-Train. I've found them fascinating since the Amiga version. Loving the Switch version - an upgraded version of A-Train 3DS. Also enjoy relaxing playing the PS4 version (from US PS Store) too.
  14. Nope. I'm so used to it, I forget about it. I don't find it an issue as all the other sub menus are fine - history mode etc. Only thing missing for me.
  15. I've just done my second reinstall of ArkOS and it's back to working smoothly. Strange.
  16. Notice with 1.5 Arkos Giant Gram 2000 works smoothly and with any variations of 1.6 including the new DC methods it stutters on - for example, a third punch in a row or a move that involves hurting at a percentage. Have you found that?
  17. Would someone try Rage Racer on RG351 please? I just can't get it to work properly - as soon as you go through the the glass arch after the start, the frame rate and controls turn to treacle. I've tried various settings (but clearly not the right one!). it's the one game out of thousands, I just can't get to run well on RG351. Maddening. Works fine on RG350M though.
  18. I use ArkOS - which after flashing, will expand the drive when you place it in the RG351, then put back in PC to add roms. I imagine you can, but not sure - you may be able to expand it manually with windrive. Or find a 128gb image, remove roms you don't want etc.
  19. Yep, not sure why I left it off my list - it's my fave DC wrestler! Giant Gram 2000 works great on ArkOS default settings. Bloody great game - the DC covered all bases of wrestling game styles with Fire Pro D, Giant Gram 2000 and Toukon Retsuden 4.
  20. I can't find any reference to it in lists of cloud Switch games released or ever seen a mention of it - I'm always on high alert for A-train references. Seems strange?!
  21. A-Train? You can buy the Japanese version on cartridge or e-shop. There's a demo available on the UK e-shop now. Totally getting this - A-Train 3DS is one of my fave games. Been playing these since the Amiga version, through PlayStation, Xbox 360 and PS4 (US only).
  22. Cosmic Smash works well. Rez worked well too, until I changed something. Dunno what. DC games have to be set to 640 x 480 though. They look crazy bad at the default. There's a number of other settings that create considerable jumps in performance. Ark OS Retroarch 32 Flycast/Flycast Extreme has the best default settings. PSP games need to be changed to PPSSPP GO. The other OS' have poor defaults that make games run terribly. DSP off is quite a jump. Hot Shots Golf 2 on PS, is the best option. As said, the other golf games - Mario Golf 64 included, the screen goes black when taking a shot.
  23. Don't really agree with this. Dreamcast - a number of games work fine - Fire Pro D, Toukon Retsuden 4, Cosmic Smash, NFL Blitz, to name a few. Some games, don't. Usually the Sega games/bigger games. PSP - again, some games work fine. A number of games work at 100% FPS. Some work well with 1 frameskip. Many don't run well. It depends what OS you use - for example Arkos has updated versions of DC/PSP emulators over 351Elec and the other options. Stock emulator choices can be poor when there is a variety.
  24. F Zero GX - Lightning: Thunder Road Sega Rally - Desert Ridge Racer - Short Rage Racer - Mystical Coast Ridge Racer Type 4 - Heaven and Hell F355 - Monza (any racing game) Forza - Maple Valley Gran Turismo - Autumn Ring Outrun 2/2006: Space Shuttle ending ...and tons of others I can't think of right now.
  25. Yeah, Psycho Pinball a bit of a rip off of Fantasies - but in a good sense - just the theming is reminiscence. Yep, I've tried them every pinball game recently on RG351 - all of the Spidersoft ones have been deleted! Obession Pinball was also deleted - that may have been because it was fiddly between keyboard and joystick, rather than being poor.
