@kyleforrester87 That explains why I got annihilated and ended up dropping HLD, I didn’t go north! It’s one of those games I absolutely have to revisit.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

@nessisonett @kyleforrester87 Lol, that sounds exactly like my experience with Dark Souls! After you arrive in Firelink Shrine, the first thing I did was go straight to the Graveyard, didn't realise that it wasn't the way you were supposed to go and I kept getting destroyed by the skeletons and eventually ended up stop playing the game altogether. This was by the way years before I started a real playthrough of the game that I actually finished, lol.

So yeah that tip is definitely very helpful!

Just bought Shantae: Risky's Revenge - Director's Cut on Wii U. After having finished Professor Layton, I thought it'd be fitting to start a new game and since I'm in a Metroidvania mood as well as in a Shantae mood (since it's been a long time since I played the first one), I decided to go for the next title in the series. Looking forward to giving this a go later tonight!

Saw that 2064: Read Only Memories Integral is only €3 now on Switch eShop so I decided to buy it. I've heard that it's supposedly quite good and it's a point-and-click adventure/visual novel game, which I like. It also got an 8/10 on NintendoLife and it's around 10 hours long, which is pretty good all things considered.

@KratosMD You buy the most interestingly-named games! I've been at this gaming lark my entire life, and I still delight at some of the titles I see popping up all over the place.

Hope you enjoy the latest additions to your ever-expanding collection!

@RogerRoger Haha well, I guess I've gotten used to buying games with unusual names now since I don't really think that much about it anymore. I believe though that it's great that you can still find games with interesting and creative names, as supposed to ones such as "Another Zombie Shooter Game!!!!!!" and the likes that you see nowadays.

But yeah, thanks!

@KratosMD ...or worse, just doing away with numbers and subtitles and causing confusion (I'm looking at you, Tomb Raider and Hitman and countless others)!

Purchased a couple more Switch games:

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (I'm excited to test out the crossplay functionality with my PC version)
Shantae and the Seven Sirens

Just bought The Denpa Men: They Came By Wave on 3DS. I've had my interest in this series for a very long time now but I never got around to playing it. Recently I've tried finding something interesting to play on my Vita but I've had poor luck, so I decided to randomly look through games I want to get on 3DS and I was reminded of this one. Tried out the demo several times in the past but I was never hooked until today. This game is a turn-based dungeon crawler where you control a bunch of goofy characters and it's pretty much your bogstandard JRPG. Until today, the game just felt way too hard for me. Like I could barely progress in the first dungeon without everyone constantly dying and being forced to use up all my items. However, when my entire party was wiped out and I lost all my Denpa Men (yes you lose your party members if they die but you can get them back in a separate area), I was forced to acquire new ones and when I did that, all of them were at a high level. Thanks to this the dungeon became way easier as it felt more balanced out now when compared to the rest of my party. With this obstacle out of the way, I started to enjoy the game more and I even managed to finish the demo for the first time.

Ultimately I decided to buy this game since I wanted a more casual JRPG to play on the go and this one definitely delivers. I just finished the second dungeon in the full game and the game is just so good, it's simple but fun and really addicting to play!

I've managed to get hold of a CRT so have ordered Virtua Cop 2 for the Saturn with it's light gun. I have also just bought a modded Dreamcast so I can just put Dreamcast games on an SD card and play some classics that I just can't get hold of (or are too expensive) such as Giga Wing 2 and Canon Spike which for those unaware is a king of Smash TV style game where you can play as the likes of Cammy, Arthur (Ghosts and Goblins) and Megaman

Older than I care to remember but have been gaming since owning a wooden Atari 2600 and played pretty much everything inbetween.

@carlos82 RE: lightgun games, I remember a friend having the Resident Evil one on PSone which was good fun.

It had an interesting mechanic in that you could control the walking to a degree and it had a few different routes through the game. Plus, it obviously had a lot of the recognisable enemies from the RE games.

Got me a Mega Drive Mini. Yay! It is more cost effective to get the Mega Drive Collection on the PS4, however I simply couldn't resist having an adorable miniature console and replica controllers. It also has some games that aren't available in the collection.

@mookysam you say that but with the mini you can add games pretty easily, including fan translations and homebrew and you get more suitable controllers to play them

@Thrillho never played that one, I remember it didn't review well at the time but I think it'll be worth a look

@carlos82 Ooh, I’d love an old CRT for PS1 games, Ridge Racer Type 4 and Gran Turismo 2 especially. The lack of input lag is also really great for retro games, platformers would be actually beatable 😉

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

@nessisonett yeah I forgot how much more responsive they are, I currently use my PS3 for PS1 games but I think I'm gonna have to pick up a PS1 to play them on that

Just ordered Tales of Vesperia - Definitive Edition on Switch for €30. Been wanting to buy the DE for a long time now but the Switch version has always been so expensive compared to the PS4 one. Found a used copy of the game today for only €30 and so I decided to finally buy it. Even though I could've bought the PS4 version for €25 instead, I think I'd prefer to play JRPGs on a portable device, especially if they're grind-heavy. Also, after having played more on my Switch recently, I find that the option to play with my Pro Controller on TV and then play in portable mode while in bed is convenient for me. It's a more flexible way of playing games and I like that.

I've put my Snes mini for sale On Ebay. It's okay but I can't get into any of the games, they are just a bit too old to enjoy - played Mario RPG, Star Fox and SMW. They are all awesome for old games but I felt like I was wasting my time.

Hopefully some mini Gen 6 consoles make an entrance. Would love a Gamecube mini or Xbox mini.

Recently purchased a few games for the Vita in the sales such as Salt and Sanctuary. Finally decided to start Flame Over which we had on ps+ ages ago. It's quite challenging at first but I think I'm getting the hang of it. I did fancy the idea of being a fire fighter when I was at college so maybe this is the next best thing?

I'm wondering when they'll turn off all online support for the Vita, so I figured I should probably get to it sooner rather than later.
