  1. All things Yakuza!

    I certainly hope so! I will pick up 6 after completing 2 Kiwami I think, but hoping quick for ports of 3, 4 and 5 at some point. Are they on PSNow?
  2. Shenmue 1 and 2 coming to PS4,XB,PC

    I'm still waiting for my Maken X remaster from Atlus from the DC days. Any day now I expect. They remade it as Maken Shao for the PS2, but inexplicably switched it to third person and it was pump.
  3. Shenmue 1 and 2 coming to PS4,XB,PC

    I certainly will! Love how they've done that.
  4. Shenmue 1 and 2 coming to PS4,XB,PC

    Like all the rest of you, I cannot wait for these. Yes, I'm sure they've aged badly. No, it doesn't matter. Not to anyone who fell in love with them the first time round anyway. I dragged my wife around Yokosuka a few years ago, looking for sailors like. It's absolutely nothing like it is in the game (31 years ago!), but there are a few narrow streets lined with small clothes shops and bars. I looked for Tom, or indeed anyone with a faux-Jamaican accent, and came away disappointed.
  5. Yakuza 6 - Baby's Day Out

    Bah, I really want to get this asap, but as a new recruit to Yakuza having played only 0 and Kiwami, I think I'm gonna wait it out until Kiwami 2 in August. That will make a nice trilogy of pure awesomeness and then I can possibly leap forward to 6 after that.
  6. Nintendo Switch

    They're banging on about the pros and cons of playing in tate mode on some small stand they picked up from the Japanese equivalent of poundland. But yes we're blatantly supposed to be noticing the reflections here.
  7. Mighty No. 9 - Inafune reboots MegaMan via Kickstarter

    I completed Mighty No 9 and I remember the last boss + final forms driving me crazy. It's old-school, but as you mention it isn't always clear what you're getting killed by. I think I looked up a Youtube vid of a no-hit run and got the pattern down until I could do it myself pretty handily. Just loads of wasted potential this game. Had a solid scoring multiplier mechanic and I liked the dashing, but level and general game design was all over the place. It felt cheaply made and rushed, not what people were expecting from such a successful KS campaign.
  8. Monster Hunter: World

    Life's too short to not choose the bloody chef's choice platter every time, hammering X all the while...
  9. Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection - May 2018

    That's a fantastic idea, and great use of the Switch's portability. I predict it will be put into use precisely seven times worldwide.
  10. Shmups

    Blazing Star is bloody amazing, thanks all! Great pace, bold, vibrant sprites, simple but effective power-up system, amazing engrish - precisely what I was after. It reminds me a bit of Gate of Thunder on the Turbo Grafx, but much better. I always found GoT a bit overrated. Only tried the first two ships but can tell it's a keeper. Now to get cracking on Jolly and MagicalDrop's probably-well-pip-to-beat hi-scores!
  11. Shmups

    Are you still digging Samurai Aces?
  12. All things Yakuza!

    It also means I can hold back on Yakuza 6 for a while. Was willing to dive in on release but was mindful I'd have missed a whole four games' worth of plot. I might still pick it up on release to support it in its titanic struggle against GoW.
  13. Shmups

    Cheers all. Blazing Star it is!
  14. Shmups

    Cheeky @Jolly et al. have put me in the mood for a Switch shmup, but I only really want to focus on one at a time and not spread myself too thin. I have a few options: 1. Strikers 1945 II - The first one is brilliant and the second is supposed to be one of the top shmups ever. 2. Gunbird - Interested, but mechanically looks really similar to Strikers 1945 (I realise that a lot of Psikyo shmups have this problem) 3. Samurai Aces - Psikyo's first game appeals to me aesthetically, would be good to get some hi-score shenanigans going on 4. Blazing Star - Hadn't even heard of this until it was mentioned up thread (although I did know it's predecessor Pulstar). Looks good, but it's a hori. 5. Danmaku Unlimited 3 - Looks amazing but intimidating, and also lacking character? I'm also put off by the fact it's by some Canadian bloke and therefore isn't a true shmup from glorious Nippon. (Only half said tongue in cheek) What do you fellas reckon?
  15. Killer7 and Flower, Sun & Rain Remasters

    Killer 7!? Yes! Still Suda 51's best work. It was one of my favourite GC games. (And anyone who says PN03 was shit was quite obviously playing it wrong.)
