  1. Anyone from here heading over to this? Takes place on Bank Holiday weekend Sat 4th and Sun 5th May at Manchester Central (GMEX) I'll be there setting up the pinball machines again. We're trying to get as many of the Star Wars machines there as possible with it being May 4th Should be a good selection of the very latest pinball machines too, as well as the classics. The wider show has got a good line-up this year too. Lots of Knightmare (TV show) related things, and a Q&A panel with Matthew Smith (Jet Set Willy) could be interesting Loads of info on the show at the official site : https://www.playexpomanchester.com For extra karma, please consider buying tickets from our site : www.ukpinball.com/twilightzone We're a non-profit volunteer group, and donate from our profits to charity! Cheers!

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    Very Off Topic - but just wanted to point out that 'rogue-like' does not mean a stealth game. It means "like Rogue". Rogue was probably the first ever game to have randomly generated levels, meaning no two play throughs would be the same.
  3. Spelunky is still, after 500+ hours, my favourite 'quick game'. It's a rogue-like, so never the same game twice. It has a ridiculous amount of depth in the game mechanics that you figure out along the way. Games can last from seconds up to maybe a couple of hours on an exceptionally good run. There's no rpg like leveling up. It just relies on the same 'git gud' player skills. Easy to learn, hard to master.

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    Agree that LB is crushingly difficult for 'the first boss'. But you can entirely skip her and move on much much further through the game. I'm way way past that point now and am slowly getting to a point (with 5 estus flasks or whatever it's called now) where I'm more confident trying to tackle LB. I just had one more go at the end of a session tonight, and I still haven't taken her down, but I think with a couple more tries I'll have her now. Once you get past the Bull then everything massively opens up and there is a huge amount of play available for leveling up before returning and retrying any bosses that might otherwise be difficult. It's a really great structure once you get that far, though admittedly just getting to that point isn't trivial.

    No-one's said it yet so I will - the grapple hook and stealth makes this Batman Souls for me Loving it so far, Really like how the areas are sectioned off so you can skip through the parts you've 'done' and get back to being crushed by the mini-bosses quite easily.

    I've got a cdkeys key due for the pc version, which I assume is just a Steam code. Can I preload it on Steam? (Away from home at the moment, but getting back later tonight)

    Sekiro Official PC Specs.

    This uses the same engine as Dark Souls 3...is that right? And if so, should be fair to assume if my pc managed to run that well, then this should be fine too?

    Trials Rising

    Sigh. I'm not enjoying this. I'm level 72 now, and there is still some way to go before I unlock the last of the training courses ffs. I'm guessing the extreme tracks unlock at level 100? It's just too grindy. And 90%of the grind is not fun because it's stupid shit like "get 30 seconds of airtime" which is very easy, it just means you abandon any hope of setting a good time.. So I'm still just grinding my way through the points and not feeling any motivation to actually set good times The engine etc, even a lot of the tracks are very good. But the surrounding structure is appalling.

    Trials Rising

    Grah. I can't log in there. I get "log in error" (as opposed to "username/password invalid"). Joy. Off to support I go then...

    Trials Rising

    I'm "Mr Wizcat" on XBL, and "Mr_Wizcat" in the Ubi Club thing or whatever it's called. I have some of you from the old XBox 360 Trials games, so looking forward to seeing your times again What do I have to do to add friends on Ubi Club? Friends that are on a different platform for example. Do I have to use the web interface that I can't log into, or can I do it in-game somehow?

    Pinball Dreams Amstrad CPC

    No I don't think so, so fair point. I'm sure everyone knows, but the team that made the original Amiga Pinball Dreams were from the demoscene team The Silents. The success of this game helped them build into a new company that people may know today as DICE. So bit weird that Rebellion now own the rights?! You'd have thought DICE would have tried to repurchase their old content at some point.

    Battlefield V

    Meh. I got stuck on the one about scoring points 'in a reinforcement vehicle'. First I had no idea what that meant.. I presumed it meant armoured for some reason so spent an hour or two wondering which vehicle I should have been using. Once I realised what it meant then I spend a few games trying to get hold of the commander spot, then getting frustrated that whenever I do actually call in a reinforcement vehicle it gets snatched away by some other cnut. So yeah. This weeks missions can do one.

    The Big Lebowski

    Hello. Resident pinball nerd here, so since this thread is bumped I just thought I'd mention that Dutch Pinball made a game out of this film a few years back. It's a decent game, but not amazing. Pretty rare game though since they had problems with their manufacturers, so not many out there... If you were lucky enough to be an early buyer, you'd have got a real rug with the machine. The game features a mini bowling game and a rug that unfurls too. John Goodman caused a little hassle during licencing too apparently because he didn't want his images to be associated with any violence or drug references. I guess that makes a sequel pretty unlikely!
