Do your parents like video games?

This was the great thing about home computers, my parents thought they were educating me when they bought my first home computer, an Acorn Electron which bust after a couple of months, thankfully they got me a Spectrum 128k the following christmas. The only issue my parents had was gaming for long p...

The Twisted Farce that is the Evolution of 2d

I also don't think you can use demo scene games as 'evidence'. A good example from years ago is Shadow of the Beast, this was the Amiga's killer app. The Atari ST version was shocking in comparison, poor colours, poor scrolling and less parallax. A team of demo sceners released a demo showing SOTB b...

Atari Anthology (PS2)

I've not touched this for a while, I think Crystal Castles made put it down for a while. Now trying Gravitar which I'm not sure about, I can see it's got fun mechanics but bloody hell - it's hard !
The chances of me doing the trippy and double speed challenges are zero on this, it's difficult as is.

The Derailment of the 3d Genre

I think, I sort of see Jon's point. I too like the pre-texture mapped looked but as alluded to earlier, both the 3DO and the Jaguar struggled with frame rates. Put Virtua Racing 32x next to Chequered Flag and the frame rate is night and day. Also I would say Virtua Fighter 2 3D graphics still stand ...

Does the PS4 have the same update annoyances as the PS3?

[QUOTE=ptdebate][QUOTE=Sut]You can set the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U to automatically download updates as well. The OP's situation with MW3 could have been prevented by this.[/QUOTE]

I never realised that with the PS3 ! Thanks pt. I will explore the settings tonight.

Does the PS4 have the same update annoyances as the PS3?

Yes that is a big improvement with the PS4, you can enable updates in 'rest' mode so the system will download both system and game updates whilst in this mode.

Virtua Fighter Series

I'm having a lot more fun with Fighting Vipers on Saturn. Similar mechanics but less punishing AI.
Yeah the graphics are rougher than Virtua Fighter 2 and the game lacks the polish and strategy of VF2 but FV is definitely more accessible and to me at least more fun.

Future of Consoles

I think there is a strong case of rose tinted spectacles regarding the 16-bit era, it is also my favourite era but let's not kid ourselves that there was a strong diversity of genres. Early on every other game was a shooter, then when Sonic hit, every other game was a mascot based platformer, Street...

Breaking news: The Order: 1886 is a bust

Ah man, I was looking forward to this. Will wait for a few more reviews and hopefully a playable demo and decide from there.

I personally never pre-order.
