    I play video games, I buy and listen to music of all sorts, I mess around on an acoustic guitar, I own video capture and editing software, I randomly dance around at any opportunity, spend time out shopping for more music/games/film or seeing folk...the usual, really.

  1. I haven't had much luck today but this was a nice TCQ x MJ: https://rave.dj/SKtDnCtCZpNURQ
  2. Destiny 2? There are solo missions, matchmaking co-op missions and events, PvP, PvP, PvPvE modes, and unless you're doing late-game stuff then you can join up with randoms.
  3. You can learn a lot about someone from the initial abilities they activate in Gradius
  4. During the Rainbow Islands Retro Game Club I talked about how the rainbows can be quite versatile. You can cast them on enemies to kill them, you can crush them beneath you, and you can use them as platforms, and that's great. But you can also choose to fill the screen with rainbows and collapse them together in a massive chain reaction. You can place rainbows on top of each other in the same position and they won't cancel out each other, so against bosses the damage "stacks". In some versions of the game you can place a rainbow in the middle of your jump, and then if you mash jump at the apex of your current jump you'll simultaneously collapse the rainbow and jump off it, and you can repeat this to scale the level insanely quickly, ignoring platforms altogether. Some people may want to move as vertically as possible, but creating long bridges across a level is useful when you crush them all onto the various items and enemies. And then certain power-ups encourage other play styles. Also, I was playing Kirby's Adventure yesterday if that counts - he has as many "play styles" as there are enemy types (almost - some enemies don't bestow abilities) and most of them can be used effectively to progress through a level - it's just up to you what you decide to use.

    Definitely pick up Jamestown - the presentation and soundtrack give it the feeling of some lost arcade shoot ‘em up but with plenty of modern flourishes, and it’s challenging without being too absurd. I only got around to the PC game a couple of years ago but it was still great.

    So you capture creatures and feed them to inhabitants to find out what the effects are, and (I guess) use the effects to your advantage in order to solve the mystery of the island? It kind of sounds like a selection of gameplay concepts pulled out at random, but then again a population of weirdos that bestow unusual effects upon inhabitants could be interesting in a Kirbyish way

    Best New Music 2020

    Special Request - Spectral Frequency EP Some nice beats and beeps in this new release
  9. As @Camel mentioned it doesn’t have everything from 2006 but there’s still enough to enjoy. Outrun 2006 on PC is probably the “best” version to play today, and I think it’s on the Internet Archive too...
  10. Someone pointed me to this a while ago but I think I just tried to break it with the most ill-suited pairings ever, rather than trying to find things that complement one another. Then again, even when you try there's no telling how it will splice things! Around the Police (NSFW): https://rave.dj/AYIcb1Msx7R8Jw
  11. Stay calm, try not to stay locked on to one guy for too long - either try playing entirely without lock-on, or turn it on and off as you progress - and it's worth practising gun parries, especially with the katana guy as he goes in swinging a lot. Also, I guess the invincibility frames during the visceral attack can give you a second to check your surroundings?
  12. A “Come Dine With Me” tie-in game by Shu Takumi and Capcom.
  13. It's that time again: This month's bundle includes: Dear Esther Kunai Turok 2: Seeds of Evil GRIP Dark Devotion Details are at https://twitch.amazon.com/tp Install instructions:
