What do the other peeps of the boards think?

I thought the original title was perfect:

Arcade and Retro General Chat: <Insert Coin>

Yeah the original reads better. Not worth stressing about though.

Have a look at that thread. Someone might be able to help you out. I saw a Villager and Wii Fit Trainer in Gamestop on Henry Street on Wednesday. Villager had a sticker on the plastic saying hold until New Year, but it was out on the rack. Might be gone by now, but it's worth a look if you're close and stuck.

Nah, this one is better. 'Insert Coin' is the title of the thread and 'general arcade and retro chat' describes what it's about.

The other way around just looks odd

Has anyone played Stick of Truth? Wondering if it's worth picking up.

I think the other way looks like a game screen, the coin part isn't ever on top is it? it's like
Game Title!
Insert Coin
I thought I already posted but it's not here

I tried to get into it for a good 4 hours I think but found the humour forced and didn't have the clever context that makes south park actually funny. It's more 'hur hur remember this episode'. Combat is a bit crappy. I might try and play a bit more but honestly don't see what people see in it.

The new update from the La Mulana development team is pretty encouraging about the indie scene in Japan. Culturally they saw stuff like kickstarter and the likes as begging so indie was really just the doujin scene. However they are saying that it's taking off massively finally in japan, although it's eating into development time since instead of begging to get into trade shows they are now being especially invited to each and every one of them.

Kind of hoping japanese indie games make it big. Now Western indie games are well and good but I'd love a few more games like La Mulana, Cave Story, Fortune Summoner or Gunhound EX that are very authentic to 16-bit gameplay of old and not the bad western indie games that that just can't get it right (Shovelknight being an exception that proves the rule). Maybe even a return of weird japanese b-tier games like Katamari?

From what I've seen, the combat system would be the turn off. I don't mind the RPG aspect, but I'd prefer a more involved combat system than the 'select attack, watch, now you block, rinse, repeat'

€20 in Smyths at the minute. Have quite the backlog though. Just getting into GTA V too. I've been having some trouble with the PS3. Tried the GTA install multiple times and it kept failing, freezing online in BF4 and once or twice in Uncharted 3. I deleted the Battlefield 4 game data and it installed fine. About 10% in after around 3-5 hours, so I've a while to go yet, ha.
