  1. You just got called out! I'm with Tim here - Kamurocho is basically it's own character now. I love the way it can be utilised in different ways and how it's grown/shrunk/aged in all the different titles.

    I'm all over Astro Bot - I'm playing Mario 3D Land at the moment and I think it's a shame those ideas where never built upon in a sequel. I like the fact we have a few VR games now that are about controlling a character in front of you like this, Moss, Bound and Star Child.

    Juh-rur-per-guh - The JRPG thread.

    Phantasy Star 1 and Phantasy Star Online are probably my two favourite RPGs of all time, for some very different reasons. Phantasy Star 1 is a game that is so far ahead of its time it's untrue. Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest and Phantasy Star all kicked started JRPGs in 1987 yet Phantasy Star feels like a game almost from the 16 bit era. Immensely well designed dungeons, 3D mazes, simple puzzles, interesting plot, female lead. Phantasy Star Online is a game that was so perfectly designed they never managed to get it quite right again. Rythmic combat and just the right amount of randomisation of dungeon layouts and loot drops that created one of the most compelling loops in gaming. Fluid online parties and always something new to chase without feeling like a treadmill grind. True Phantasy Stars!

    I'm playing Digimon: Cyber Sleuth at the moment which is a bit like a Persona game with a worse story but a battle system that feels like an easier SMT: Nocturne. Surprisingly solid.

    Playstation Vita

    It's just stops the exploits from working. I suppose there was a view that Sony might not fix through firmware at this point of the lifecycle but that's really naive. New games are still being released and so they will continue to try and protect that. Cat and Mouse continues.

    Probably don't want to be updating to the latest Vita firmware: https://twitter.com/theflow0/status/1039395872184918018?s=19
  8. You are missing the best one! Personally I have all the Rhythm Paradises (which isn't that impressive) and almost all the Yakuza titles.

    Do/did your parents game?

    Yes. My Dad has been gaming as long as I have. Earliest memory of him being really into them is probably when we stayed up late and he showed off one of my Christmas presents - Bart Vs Space Mutants - and how he was stuck on it! His favourite genre is JRPGs, and generally he fell off a little when the 2D era ended with his last console being the Sega Saturn (Yes - he owns Panzer Dragoon Saga). I gave him a chipped Xbox which he played a lot of Chrono Trigger on. He bought a Wii for iPlayer and played a few of those Lego Games and the flying game from Wii Sports Resort. I gave him a PS2 and Dragon Quest VIII and a PSP in which he played all the Ys series, Lufia etc. He is currently playing Dragon Quest IX on a DS and has almost done all of those multiplayer missions by himself. His favourite games are probably Phantasy Star, Revenge of Shinobi, Super Metroid, Chrono Trigger, but his most favourite game (which he only discovered around 2-3 years ago) is Zelda on the NES. He knows that game inside out and the quickest route through the game. He sometimes watches YouTube playthroughs and narrates to me if they are on the critical path or not! (I don't have a clue!)

    Song of the Summer 2018

    What's been your summer jams, and how do you identify? For me, it doesn't have to have summery lyrics but it just has to have a certain vibe. Generally it has to be something I listened to a lot and generally quite ear-wormy! My three: Anderson .Paak - Bubblin I can't think of a better track to drive to with the windows down. The beat on this is just killer - those strings give me the chills everyone. It's such a massively ridiculous track and so OTT - the type of rap track he hasn't really attempted before - and it has the humour to carry it. The video is one of the best I've seen in such a long time! Red Velvet - Power Up Such positive happy bright pop. If it's not the cheesy thumping euro-pop of "Ba-na-na-na" it's the mario coin collecting sound effects, or the harmonics of "Lets Power Up! (yeah!)". It's not their best track by any stretch but rather has all the usual hallmarks of their sound in a very pleasing mashup. Still Corners - Black Lagoon Chris Isaak style guitar riffs and the usual whispered vocals that are staple of this style. Cinematically loneliness perfect for summer sunsets.

    Streets of Rage IV

    Dude - I'm 90% sure that's just the trailer music, and Yuzo is doing the soundtrack - just like Sonic Mania. The fact he can't speak suggests he's under an NDA and Sega/Lizardcube have some grand marketing plans, and someone else has found credits which states composer as TBA. Also wouldn't be surprised if Motohiro Kawashima joined him, given how easily he was brought on board for a mega obscure Vita only game: http://www.siliconera.com/2015/07/13/why-the-streets-of-rage-3-composer-was-the-only-musician-for-oh-deer/

    Shenmue 1&2

    Physical. The UK charts are pretty pointless without sales data as the thresholds for a No. 1 vary massively. Shadow of Collusus reached No. 1 in the UK on PS2 and that didn't exactly shift units. But still, nice to see Shenmue there!

    Onimusha: Warlords

    Capcom rereleasing everything! It's great! Not sure why they haven't gone for a trilogy release. Maybe Jean Reno issues.

    Streets of Rage IV

    That's a strong yes I think.
