@RogerRoger You really love that game huh.


All this retro talk has made me eager to play more games on the 360, and so I decided to buy two horror games of franchises I've never played: F.E.A.R and Condemned.

It's really nice that Xbox 360 has pretty much a demo for all of the games on there, as I could easily find one for both FEAR (albeit FEAR 2) and Condemned 1. I found both games to be fun and spooky so I thought I'd give them a shot. I might even be compelled to buy the sequels if I like them enough.

@RogerRoger Dreamcast Then you can play JPB on that too - and in the original Klingon!

In all seriousness though - tread easy with the N64. I know it's generally beloved, but I found pretty much every other game I got for it was crap.

@KratosMD F.E.A.R is a great game!

@KALofKRYPTON I've heard that too. Even though the game has more of an emphasis on shooting, it still feels scary due to the environments and the main "villain". I'm looking forward to eventually playing it!

Out of curiosity, have you played any of the sequels or the expansions to the first game? Are they also worth playing through?

@KratosMD
F.E.A.R 2 was very good - more of the same regarding the story, but gameplay was improved quite a lot (not that it was 'bad' previously, but was pretty old school feeling).

The third wasn't quite as good - but I really didn't give it as much time.

After wanting it for ages, I finally bought a relatively cheap copy of Metroid Fusion for the GBA. I think this is the last 2d Metroid I haven't played. I bought a really cheap copy that never actually arrived and I had to get a refund via ebay so hopefully this one goes better. I have Metroid for the GBA, Zero Mission, Super Metroid, Metroid 2 for GB and Samus Returns on 3DS.

I could have got it cheaper on VC for the Wii U but I just like playing it on my advance. Hmm maybe now is the time to go for that modded GBA with backlit screen...

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

@KratosMD F.E.A.R. 2 is a decent shooter. Certainly not the best I've played, but it's nicely paced, gunplay is tight and you ride in a mech at one point, which is always a plus in my book. The final boss is messed up!

@Rudy_Manchego Noice! Metroid Fusion is excellent. Love the pixel art and creepy vibe.

Metroid Fusion is probably the most unique 2D game in the series, alongside Metroid II. Lots of dialogue, and I love the almost horror-ish tone of certain segments of the game.

@KALofKRYPTON Thanks for the N64 warning; I'll keep that in mind. It's mostly for licenced games anyway and I know that my love for said licences will get me through any rough patches... or at least, I hope it will.

Got 007 Everything or Nothing on the GameCube. Been meaning to get it for ages and am really looking forward to playing it.

I literally just leapt out of my seat to buy something on the CEX Website.

This order better go smoothly because oh my God this is almost the Holy Grail for things I've spent years looking for, and a game that I didn't think I would ever see in the UK.

This is the most excited I've been in weeks.

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy @JohnnyShoulder

It's too games.

The one I never expected to see in my life was Mega Man Battle Network 5: Double Team, which is the DS Exclusive "Third ultimate release" of BN5.

The one I've been looking for for years, is Mega Man ZX Advent, which came out right around the time Capcom stopped giving a damn about releasing Megaman stuff here, hence why we never got StarForce 3, and probably why the words Megaman and physical release dont go these days here.

@Knuckles-Fajita Fingers tightly crossed for your order (well, not literally, otherwise it'd be needlessly difficult to type this post out, but you get the idea)!

I've finally started to grab a few old PC games, now that I've got a proper PC to play them on. My first purchases are games which I already have on Sony consoles, so it won't be too much of a kick in the pants if I can't get them working on Windows 10; I'll just be missing out on a more stable framerate and slightly better graphics.

Wish me luck as I fiddle with settings I don't understand in order to play Star Trek: Voyager - Elite Force and Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace in the coming weeks.

Just bought Spirit Hunter: Death Mark for the PS Vita in the recent sale. I won't be playing it until September, though, when I'll be taking my Vita with me on a yearly family vacation.

@Ralizah NO!! I somehow missed it and it is back to 40 Euros... That what Sony gets when they don't release Vita discounts on the Blog anymore.

The Retro Collection Mania caught me again after a lot of years. It is VERY bad for the wallet although I only collect for portable systems and they don't cost that much. You can find Game Boy / Gear games with a few Euros
