    The Neo Geo Mini looks like a nice bit of kit, but £129?

    I wouldn't really recommend it, on the basis of its controls. Especially the separate controller which for some reason, doesn't have any microswitches.

    I thought that wasn't out until Midnight, did you get a copy early?

    I did, but not because it was on sale early somewhere.

    R Type
    Kung Fu Master

    I'm all in.

    Looks lovely on the video. Might be a cheapo job. I like the LED lights

    Impressive team.

    What will the mic on the controller be used for I wonder.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,675 ✭✭✭ Jack burton

    yeah Ive a few questions aswell alright, impressive team is right!

    i have hopes this could be good. They are definitely trying to capture the whole "mini" craze happening now. I'd like to see it do well

    Bought it, none in Supervalu but got it in Argos for €59.99 and they threw in a €5 to spend instore, so not too bad.
    Just have to wait a half an hour for this thing to install!

    Priced RDR2 on the Indonesian PSN earlier - just over €42 for the base model. Pretty easy to set up an account too

    Can't get excited about rdr2. While rdr is the best thing rockstar have made outside of bully it's not a game I'd call essential. Also reviews outside of the usual unprofessional excitable chimps.... cough... easy allies... have been a bit more reserved about it.

    I'll wait for a pc version or until it's 20 euro. Whichever comes first.

    I’d say it’ll be the game of the year, certainly if the gameplay matches the production values it will be.

    It's gorgeous, and I'm looking forward to putting some time into it.
    Unfortunately I've a splitting headache all day so I can't play it beyond the opening scenes :(

    Lot of absorption of other people's opinions there before actually playing a game, just sayin'...

    The little bit I played before the headaches said "no more" seemed pretty nice.
    The previous two games always felt like I was living inside of a great western, and this seems no different although the jump in visuals is striking, as is the less stereotypical opening which seems fitting for today's audience.
    From what I hear, this becomes a wild West themed Breath of the Wild, which seems like all my Westworld dreams with fewer philosophical debates than the show!

    True. But I never really loved a rockstar north game outside vice city so not excited about it as much as others.

    I've heard nothing but good things from all the lads I know playing it.

    I just don't have time to sink into it right now. Very little time for gaming really :(

    I'll probably pick it up next month and get stuck in

    Silly boy, you could have getting it for €36 on the Indonesian store with a discount code they emailed out a week ago! It was posted on hotukdeals too.

    Edit: you had to wait til 8am this morning though for the purchase option to go live.

    I’m the same, I just can’t bring myself to start another huge game at the mo. Finished Red Dead Redemption a few months back, and while it was an epic game...I felt the final act dragged on a bit and it was a slog to finish it. Maybe it’s just me though and the older I get, I prefer shorter games these days.

    It's all part of growing up haha. When I was in college I pumped a serious amount of hours into gaming. Now with so many other things in my life requiring a good deal of time it's hard to slot gaming in. I do usually get a run of 3 or 4 weeks where I'm taking a break from graphic design and can get some good gaming done

    Paprium shown at the party in Paris, seemingly running on original hardware. Could the wait be finally over?

    Whats your thoughts on these guys? Bit expensive for a mini arcade. There are a few different titles available.

    The thread over on Sega 16 would indicate otherwise unfortunately. :(

    After seeing the mention of Wonderboy and then me referencing Adventure Island, this led me on a merry trip through Hudon's catalogue.
    I had no idea there was a series of remakes on the PS2/GC from them.
    Admittedly, some of them look a bit off, more like an N64 game than a GC one, but Star Soldier doesn't look bad at all.
    I might add them to the watch list at least, pick one or two up along the way.
