  1. Dragon Ball FighterZ (3v3, Guilty Gear Devs)

    The game only lets you keep 3 of the same power up specifically because they stack.
  2. That fire emblem fates special edition with all 3 versions on one cart is going to be like gold dust in a few years time.
  3. One of his goons were digging in my boot while a few other people were asking about stuff on the table. They force it on you really because you are trying to make sure nothing gets stolen.
  4. "I'll have all these for £50" "No" "I use these for my stall, I need to buy them cheap to sell them on" Literally a conversation I had to deal with last time I did a car boot.
  5. Super Mario Bros. World Record

    I think having a fast 4-2 means he can't skip the frame rule so it ends up not mattering.
  6. Best classic tomb raider?

    Interesting you mention keyboard as that is the controller used for Classic Tomb Raider speedruns on pc.
  7. The topic of backlog building seems to pop up here on the regular and over the last few years even I have been slowly narrowing down my games collection. I recently watched this clip from the stream of this goldeneye speed runner / self-tested 150 IQ “genius” talking about how he wants to have lasting relationships with his games. I’ll let you watch the video as it’s pretty funny. His analogy of people treating games like one night stands aside, I can get what he is saying. A lot of people are in the mentality of wanting to marathon their games, I certainly want to marathon my 300 game steam library at some point. I’m currently going through a phase of slimming down my collection to games that I know I love enough to play them regularly and not just keep around because I liked them when I did a play through. This is going to make my libraries range of game types a lot more narrower (I own 6 versions of DDR on PS2) but I don’t think the more focused collection is a bad thing if I’m playing those games as a prolonged investment rather than something I’m playing for the sake of saying I’ve been there and done it. It’s still good to keep trying new things on occasion but I am starting to think that it might be a good thing to do this even if it means I’m keeping consoles for 5 games. I’m interested to see where other people stand on this as it is s hot topic on here sometimes.
  8. Dragon Ball FighterZ (3v3, Guilty Gear Devs)

    I've played it a lot. I'm just not interested in touching online until I've done everything I want to do offline first.
  9. Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

    I'd argue King of Fighters is (and has been for most of its history) a regional game. There's enough players in Asia to justify it returning to events like Evo Japan year on year. Marvel did manage numbers earlier on and it probably can continue to have a presence at American regionals but the writing is on the wall. Dragon Ball FighterZ has essentially killed it off, video game Darwinism, the week DBFZ launched the Next Level battle Circuit weekly in New York had over 50 people enter Dragon Ball and 2 people enter Marvel, that tells you everything you need to know about the state of Marvel when it has been pushed out in one of its biggest areas by another game. People will still play Marvel but its only going down hill from here.
  10. Shadow of the Colossus Remake (Bluepoint)

    Was just curious if it was a straight remake or if it had a bit of that Resident Evil remake factor of playing with expectations.
  11. Shadow of the Colossus Remake (Bluepoint)

    I love the original game but not been looking at news for this. Has there been any major changes from the original that I should be aware of?
  12. Apparently the issue was first bought up at the Donkey Kong community forum. After this they now consider Steve Weibe's score to be the first 1,000,000 point game of Donkey Kong played, not Billy Mitchell. If it is found that Billy Mitchell did cheat, how far is it going to go? How many other scores will be discovered to be fakes? We can't just wipe everything he ever did, the man was the first person to play a perfect game of pac-man and it can't ever be changed for example.
  13. The moment anyone makes a serious attempt at an old fake score is when they will be discovered to be fake. We have emulators, tool assists, we can look at the code for these old games. If The record is faked there are a lot of ways to find if they are fake. The reason dragster got found out is because the title of "longest standing games world record" caught peoples attention to the point where people looked at the code and said "hold on, 5.51 is impossible to do". But more to the point records that old are rare outside of twin galaxies and outside a few select titles, no one uses or respects twin galaxies as an authority on game scoring. If anything what you might want to say is not "wipe all the records" but "wipe all the twin galaxies records that don't have respectable evidence" because twin galaxies have been shown to be far too lax in this whole thing, accepting world records because a "referee" (walter day, todd roders, that paedophile, etc) said so. For records a lot of fan made communities are pretty good for stopping cheats, the elite has been running since 1999 and they've gotten very big on cracking down on cheating thanks to a player base that will scan every last detail of a record. I don't think we will have a unified record keep ever again and I think it is probably best this way. Keep the records if the community for that game want to keep them is where I stand.
  14. I don't think wiping all records would be a good idea. Part of the magic is seeing the records broken. Like karl Jobst beating that 15 year old goldeneye 007 world record time.
