    The Everton FC thread - Brace for disappointment

    Nah fuck off that's not okay.

    Football Thread 2018/19

    If this happens I'm done with Moshiri. Recruitment since he took over has been baffling.

    Gender Diversity / Politics in games (was Tropes Vs. Women)

    They clearly hit a nerve by calling it what it is.

    The Twitch/Ustream/Mixer Thread - a Streaming Pile of Bits

    They clamped down on it but lets just say the twitch staff are known for having a few favourites.

    Fighting Games that are not Street Fighter

    Actually people actively talk about how Pro Evo was godlike in the PS2 era with 4-6 all being very well regarded. Also helps that fighters are very closed games by nature, by design they can give players an extreme amount of control freedom over very specific things because of how limited the area of play is. The play either takes place in a box (2D) or an axis (3D). These basic things mean we are able to take radically different approaches on the same basic premise.

    I take your Smash Bros and Rivals and raise you one Slap City I was at an event at the weekend and they had a tournament for this believe it or not.

    Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection - May 2018

    Knowing that they are never giving us a super turbo with functioning difficulty is sad.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    One of my favourite things about the World Cup is the games you get are the kind of mismatches you don’t see in club football. Watching Japan get the better of bigger, faster, more physically imposing teams has made for some very entertaining viewing.

    Official Metroid Prime 2 Thread

    Personally I didn't think the motion controls in the prime trilogy were detrimental to the original metroid prime, it made getting around much more streamlined when I could simultaneously move and aim. The beam and visor UI isn't as immediate as the single input selection of the gamecube version but after some practice it becomes very easy to switch without it disrupting play.
  11. Alex Kidd boxed does seem to sell for a fair bit. The game was built into most master systems meaning most people didn't need to buy it. I think the most common game on master system (in Europe at least) is sonic the hedgehog if we're talking boxed games.

    Resident Evil 2 Remake!

    Thought Aris from Avoiding The Puddle did a great summary of the demo and it's looking like I'm going to send up adoring the game. It's worth watching for his insight, he's a very big fan of the series and seems to "get" what made REmake and RE4 such great games.

    Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection - May 2018

    I’m running Super Turbo at the games event I’m hosting tomorrow. No idea if anyone will enter but I’ve been playing it a bit. The difficulty is bugged and makes the single player less of a game and more of a tool for learning how to set traps and abuse i-frames. That all said the leap between ST and all over versions of SF2 really stands out, Super Turbo is timeless. I have this on pc and PS4 now, I’ll get psn someday.

    Super Nintendo Appreciation Thread

    Might not need it anymore. Found out Japanese n64 can use uk n64 power supply units so I’ll just keep my transformer for the SFC and buy an n64 plug.

    Super Nintendo Appreciation Thread

    I need recommendations for step down transformers. I'm running games events now and am using stuff from my collection to fill the place out but I only have one transformer currently and I don't know where I could go for a second. Needs to be the correct voltage for games systems like the Super Famicom.
