    The General Conversation Area

    TBH I don’t even bother with the alphabetical order thing, with regards to the space issue I actually came up with the idea of buying a disk bag from Amazon and getting rid of the boxes for shows or films that I might still want to watch but don’t want them taking up space, including some I...

    Personally I’d say that the best place for game preservation is GOG.com as they mandate DRM free and you can freely make personal backups of any game you buy there without any obstruction or consequences, so even if it did get shut down you can still play the games you bought as long as you have...

    Bear in mind that the more limited stuff only gets more expensive when it goes OOP, I’d say the best deals I’ve ever gotten on anime are on the MVM clearance and Christmas sales, the AL Christmas sales and the Madman summer sale………… which happened in January…………. I think Frosty the snowman was...

    My first thought was that you can technically buy a gaming pc for that price, sure it’ll be low end but by today’s standards, that’ll still be decent, how the licensors thought that charging that kind of money for a single show is acceptable is beyond me, heck, you can live off that money for a...

    The Gaming News Thread (for news that doesn't need a thread)

    At this point I’d say that indie games are the way forward, AAA stuff is often managed by greedy executives who don’t actually care about the product they’re developing, only if it lines their pockets, I’ve yet to properly look over everything that was announced but I reckon if there is...

    If the OVA dubs are exclusive to the UE then that is quite frankly unacceptable IMO, given how the EU price of the CE indicates that it’s still way too expensive for what tiny amounts of content you get (not that I mind the idea of anime being shorter and more focused than usual but the price...

    Another thing is how I might look at the artbook of a CE for like, 5 minutes and then move on with my life, unless there is something about the show that appeals to me personally, which is rarely the case with anime nowadays, or if the extra stuff actually has a purpose, like the contents of the...

    TBH I’d consider the usual 1000 copies as super limited, it’s just that they rarely sell out quickly enough to cause an issue, hence why we get some fantastic deals at Christmas which is the only time to be buying AL products 99% of the time IMO.

    The idea of UE or even CE only releases always rubs me the wrong way, the collectors sets are fine when they are optional but forcing people to buy a CE just to watch the show is taking the mick, let alone an ultimate edition that costs almost the same as 3 AAA games or a boatload of indie games...

    What games are you looking forward to in 2024?

    Honestly, out of all the games I mentioned in the original post, I’ve only gotten around to properly playing Unicorn Overlord, though I do have FF7 Rebirth and seriously need to actually get around to playing it, I’m holding off on DD2 until Capcom fix the performance so that it can run at the...

    Your 2024 game announcement predictions

    First I’ve heard of Free Radical shutting down but it looks like the hype train has crashed for this one… and I was really hoping for another Timesplitters game as well. Regarding Penny Blood, I have heard of it and am interested so hopefully it’ll turn out well, if it can be almost as good as...

    Your 2024 game announcement predictions

    Thanks. If you’re interested, there’s a thread in the creative arena on this site called “About that game I’ve occasionally said that I’m making” it’s only got a few very early screenshots of an older build that was from before I decided to start over but it might be interesting to see...

    Anime Patlabor Episodes 1 and 2 So I made yet another attempt at getting through my backlog and I thought to try this out and…….. eh. Yeah I’m not all that impressed, it’s another one, it’s hardly a bad show but it carries the same traits as so many other shows that I’ve seen it all before...

    Your 2024 game announcement predictions

    Yeah, making a game is easier said than done but what I’ve learned is that the more time you spend on it, the greater your skills will become, I remember my first proper attempt at making a game, I gave it a go and it was mostly a mess but I learned so much from the experience that I’m now much...

    Your 2024 game announcement predictions

    Likely Metroid Prime 4 Honestly it’s been so long since this was first announced that I’ll be very surprised if we don’t hear more about it this year, especially with Nintendo’s next console on the horizon. Games that probably won’t happen but if I become king of the world then I’ll legally...

    What Games Are You Playing?

    Recently I’ve been playing Terra Memoria, a game that I only discovered by pure chance and took a big risk in blind buying it because it looked like the game I was wanting to play and I feel that this one really deserves more attention because it’s actually pretty good, it plays like a JRPG if...

    What Games Are You Playing?

    Well, I recently got Unicorn Overlord for my birthday and managed to get the platinum after a whopping 70 or so hours of not even opening my copy of FF7 Rebirth, that I also got for my birthday, until after completing this game, sequence breaking so that I can recruit Dinah as quickly as...

    It also helps that Vanillaware has a genuinely excellent track record with titles such as Odin Sphere and the excellent Dragon’s Crown; regarding the strategy, I just put the OP knight guy (can’t remember his name) at the front during the first couple of missions as I’m planning on starting over...

    What Games Are You Playing?

    So I played at least a good hour of the Unicorn Overlord demo and I’m sold, though I was already looking forward to it anyway, getting to try it out has convinced me that I’m gonna have a blast with it most likely; despite the fact that a lot of strategy RPG’s tend to have really obscure...

    The animation’s fine but I can say that for any competently animated anime, it’s just one of those things where, because good animation is not uncommon in anime, it’s rare for it to impress me, the only exceptions I can think of in anime are Redline and One Piece Film Z, generally though I think...
