  1. I only played the NES one properly for the first time last week. It's like a real old-school RPG. My nieces had their pens and paper out and helped me make a map out of A4s all over the floor. Wish I'd taken a photo. Progress in that game really is rewarded. Finding a new shield or item really feels great. Speaking of the rest I could easily make a list of my favourites, but even those at the very bottom are still 10s.
  2. Bayonetta 1 & 2 - Nintendo's Witch

    The Wonderful 101. I hope you're all practicing the PunchDodge>KickDodge>Punch. You can cancel the first two attacks of the sequence pretty much immediately, giving you an extremely fast and effective Wicked Weave. Speaking of the final Wicked Weave combo finishers, you can cancel out of those with a dodge too as soon as the big demonic portal/disc thing appears. You don't need to hang around for the full animation to finish. Although if you dodge too early you'll cancel the Wicked Weave, so play around with the timing of the disc. More on that later, but with more advanced play you can chain specials together for great effect at an excessive cost of the magic meter (something that isn't as flexible in Bayo2). Get to finding those expansion slots!

    I always play in 720 anyway. For some reason it's too much for my laptop which can usually handle anything. At least I get a rock-solid 60fps. I can use my Switch Pro Controller too.
  4. Kingdom Come: Deliverance - Pure medievalism!

    Yep. One for me to keep my eye on as well.
  5. Bayonetta 3 - Announced for Switch

    Is he directing the third game though? Please make it so.
  6. We ♥ Phantasy Star Online

    I'd love to join in but doubt I'll have the time. Is it possible to play online with the GCN version? Are these private servers cross-platform?
  7. SNES Mini

    You won't be disappointed with that. I'm looking into one soon. Might sell off my 1chip SFC and a few 3DS games to fund it.
  8. Steam - Lunar New Year Sale Feb 15-19

    Finally got my hands on Disgaea. Been wanting to play it since the import PS2 days. I'd have preferred the latest Switch version, but can't grumble at €6+.

    Same. After a while it just feels 'right', though. Any excuse for the player to hammer the right trigger is always good here. Speaking of which, another good beginners tip: Get into the habit of dodge-offset even when you don't have to. So for the basic PKP combo make it: PR-KR-P (hold down the ones in bold). If you do it correctly a stream of bullets will flow from the handguns as a visual indicator for success. Another good reason to stick with that weapon set at the start. Five buttons might seem like a lot, but the combo timings are not frame sensitive like they are in Street Fighter or any other fighting game; they are very loose indeed, so take your time with the inputs and speed it up from there. ----- Once you're into the habit of dodge-offsetting every single combo you'll be on your way to mastery. Eventually you can panther offset by double-tapping R instead, meaning you can start a combo in one place, panther out of it mid-way to burst across the screen and then continue the combo elsewhere, or even crow offset by doing the exact same but in mid-air (this is all clear as day in my vid). Why is all this important? Because to stop the score counter from diminishing you need to complete combos into their wicked weave finisher (the big demonic fist/foot), and even more importantly it's probably the biggest step towards becoming seriously good at the game - this is what you will be carrying all the way into non-stop infinite climax mode after they remove Witch Time.

    Getting hung up over the sexuality in Bayonetta is like passing on Deathsmiles because the main characters are very young girls. Once you can skip past the cut scenes its basically an evolution of Capcom Aliens vs. Predator and Viewtiful Joe with a scoring system right out of a Treasure shmup.
  11. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    If it's any console-ation I burned over a hundred hours across two attempts at the 360 version before returning three years later on the PC.
  12. Bayonetta 1 & 2 - Nintendo's Witch

    One of the few games where the game play itself requires an age rating. It's like gambling mixed with transcendental states of consciousness and cocaine.
  13. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    It'll only work with a new character I'm afraid.
  14. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    You're lucky you're on the Xbone version. Just start again with it installed and you'll be set. You might want to look at some of the other mods too (Frostfall and Vivid Weathers, especially), some improve the game vastly. @Captain LeChuck Might be able to advise you on the better console mods.
  15. 999 Moons on Odyssey is extremely exhausting. I see it as a long-haul thing, and not necessarily something that should be done in one shot. I prefer to stop at the 400/500 mark and then dip back in for a few more now and then, over the years. Something I wish I could still do with 64/Galaxy.
