    Mortal Kombat 11 | April 23rd 2019

    Lots of rumours going around that dial-a-combo has been binned off in favour of a frame link system that Street Fighter uses. I'm happy either way as I really like MKX AND Street Fighter which is a big no-no in internet land Excited for the reveal. Crazy that MK is so big now it gets it's own reveal event. You've got to hand it to Ed Boon for his handling of the franchise, as opposed to Ono who seemingly doubled down on his annoying troll antics until Capcom shut him up.

    John Wick 3: Parabellum - May 2019

    Chapter 3 looks incredible. The colour! The great gun sounds! The continued absence of shakey cam! Keanu! Dacoscos! Ninjas on Motorbikes! Best film of 2019 Book it

    Have you ever found a game too hard?

    Two games that beat me : Call of Duty World at War - veteran difficulty. I even beat 3 on veteran, another lousy cheating bastard of a game, but WAW is on another level of piss taking. Jack fucking bauer constantly screaming at you to clear out those bunkers where instant death occurs in milliseconds depending how the enemy spawns or grenade spams. Then if you manage to get through, there's a couple of sniper dudes in the trees ready to instantly one shot you. An absolute joyless hateful slog of a game. Got so mad I took it out of the machine and Frisbeed it up the garden. No regrets! Sonic & Sega All Stars : a truly fantastic game ruined by a frankly absurd difficulty spike In the final stages. One of those games where you wish you could sit down with the developers in your front room, hand them the pad and say show me how it's done then, because I swear theres no way that shit was properly tested.

    Resident Evil 2 Remake - 1-Shot Demo January 11th

    I thought it looked sensational on the Pro, can't get over how smooth it is, can't wait to play the full game with that terrible HDR off (unless they somehow fix it for the final release)

    Resident Evil 2 Remake - 1-Shot Demo January 11th

    It looks a bit better than a game released in 2005

    Resident Evil 2 Remake - 1-Shot Demo January 11th

    I thought the aiming was one of the best bits. A lot like TLOU in that you have to control sway and make shots count. Has the same feeling of crowd control. I love it. Also two shots to the kneecap and a zombies leg broke off and he came tumbling down the stairs. Awesome!

    Resident Evil 2 Remake - 1-Shot Demo January 11th

    Great demo as expected in gameplay terms but the HDR is terrible. Will turn it off if that's what the full game implementation looks like. Way too bright, robbed the corridors of all atmosphere.
  11. The collectors edition has come back in stock at game. Plenty of decent extras for the price (that steelbook is real nice) and you know that statues gonna be worth some dollar in the future. £99

    Dead or Alive 6 - Early 2019

    Still looks awesome
  13. Creed 2 tells the same story as Rocky 4, but somehow manages to take 40 minutes longer to do so. Which wouldn't be a problem if that extra 40 minutes didn't feel like 80

    Music that was too good for the game it was in.

    Splatterhouse remake was an OK game, but not many people know the game was scored by Howard Drossin of Sonic 3 / Comix Zone fame and it's superb. It has touches of 90's grunge, industrial metal and straight up shredding years before Mick Gordon got universal praise for new Doom. Helped that Doom was a much better game

    Best machine for emulators?

    I read about it in this old bordersdown archive post: https://bordersdown.net/archive/index.php/t-63197.html Basically, the OG xbox has a flicker filter from 1-5 , it on 5 by default which results in the quite dark and blurry output. A mod was created for custom xboxes so you can drop the flicker filter down to 1 and it's apparently pin sharp, like proper good Dreamcast/PS2 scart quality. It's hard to find information on it though as the mod was created in 2006, long after people had moved on to the next gen. Someone in that thread said Outrun 2 was razor sharp and Shenmue II DC quality. I've got a modded system running on NTSC firmware with component cables and it's still really blurry. I've never been satisfied with the video out from any og xbox. Hoping this might be the thing i've been looking for...
