    Your old arcade and game shop hangouts

    I grew up in a town called Lurgan in NI. It had one video games shop called FC Fishing and tackle. The name kind of gives it away. Half the shop was computer games and the other half was a fishing shop. In fairness to them they did take the video game element seriously. One wall was stacked with C64 and spectrum cassettes. Always tended to get the latest games and hardware in pretty quickly too. If I recall correctly they had a demo station set up and you could play the snes and megadrive when they came out. Spent a good bit of time there but the one downside was the smell. It's never gonna be pleasent when you have a large, open, plastic bin full of maggots indoors.
  2. I should stop reading this thread. It’s giving me buyers remorse and I haven’t even bought a switch yet.
  3. I had no interest in one until about 3 weeks ago when I heard a cricket game was coming out for it. Big Bash Boom is now out and it’s a bit rubbish apparently but now I find myself searching hot uk deals repeatedly throughout the day waiting for a price to make me bite. I do enjoy handheld gaming. Had a psp, still have a vita and 3ds. None of them have ever truly delivered what I want from a handheld device. I have now unwittingly convinced myself the switch will.
  4. I also cannot be bothered with crafting. In any RPG I’ll do as little as I can possible get away with. Who has the time to go to numerous random points on a massive maps in order to collect all the components. Fuck that shit.
  5. I just play one game at a time. Well two actually. I generally have one single player game on the go (currently the witcher 3) and then one multiplayer game (BFV) for Monday gaming night with a few chums. I'll not buy another game until the single player game is finished. In saying that I really want to buy a Switch and a few games for it so I'll take my take my high horse and gtfo.

    I had recorded the extended highlights on BT. When I started watching them they began in the 9th inning and I was cursing BT but then I eventually realised why Gonna be some tire bodies in tonight's game.

    Most Useless Features

    It’s creation was worth it for that photo alone

    That story might be one of most, if not thee most, poignant of the show but FMA has so much more to give beyond it. As JohnC said, you’d be depriving yourself of Major Armstrong and I don’t know why anyone would do that to themselves.

    Forgot to mention ive watched Attack on Titan season one. There is a really compelling grimness to it especially early on. A great watch. I think I'll get on Samurai Champloo. Thanks for the suggestions. Wish I could watch FMA brotherhood fresh again. It is a fantastic show. Major Armstrong is one of my favourite characters ever. The scene were he meets the husband of Ed and Al's teacher is TV gold.

    Are there any good shows on UK Netflix? I watched FMA:brotherhood, then Cowboy bebop and one punch man. I loved them all. Watched them on late night and early morning baby shifts whilst on paternity leave. It truly was a wonderful time. ive scanned this thread and another recommendation thread but I’m kind of unsure what to watch next that is available on Netflix.

    Do/did your parents game?

    My dad tried the original Wipeout. Drove straight into the first wall and kept going till he blew up. That was the end of that. He didn’t play another till the first F1 game on the PlayStation. Unfortunately it didn’t have damage so he drove into a series of walls for a few minutes. Don’t think he has even held a controller in his hand since.

    Bad bits in otherwise good games

    I hated the final boss fight in Wolfenstein the new order. It must have took me 30 goes to do. Left me with a bitter memory of what was a good game.
