I don't know much about ROM but I've heard good things, so I'll check it out I'm sure.

Sumo Digital have announced that Snake Pass is 40% off until next week. As aggravating as it can be, as pointless as the collectables are and as much as it would have benefited from better play testing pre-release, I recommend downloading it for Ł9.49. When it comes together, it's great fun.

As a current owner, does it get better? The pace and controls have put me off thus far. Neutral

Oooh, apparently Hollow Knight is coming to Switch. I've been seeing this name pop up on various podcasts and stuff, and was considering playing it on Steam, so very glad to see it on my Nintendo.

Looks good!

Seems Binding has been delayed to September here, that I think you might be right. Also, does anyone care now with UK sites selling USA retail version and it easily accessible of the eShop but then when it does come and we've already bought it and flops in Europe, then we won't get games going forward here.

Maybe in five years time they'll include US versions of games when they're air-dropping care packages into the third-world country that is Brexit Tory Britain.

Laughing I'm not surprised one bit by this & after it didn't appear in June like they said it would I decided I wasn't going to bother buying it.

Namco Museum is coming out on July 28th:

http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2017/06/bandai_namco_confirms_july_release_for_namco_museum_on_nintendo_switch

Somewhat looking forward to downloading this - it'll be good to play Pac-Man Vs, Rolling Thunder 2 and Galaga '88 again. It's a bit shite that a better variety of games isn't included though. There's no getting away from the fact that this is typical Namco Museum stuff, with the same uninspired choice of stuff that they've been reselling for years. Nobody's ever liked Sky Kid or The Tower of Druaga - bollocks to those. And I would be quite happy to never play Dig Dug ever again.

Time Crisis, Tekken, Ridge Racer, Ace Combat, Mr. Driller, Point Blank and Soul Edge are just some of the top-quality Namco franchises that are never represented on these compilations. Why's that? What the fuck are they playing at? Is there any nostalgia left for the likes of the first Galaga and the first Splatterhouse? I'd be willing to bet all your houses that, in today's gaming scene, there's much more nostalgia for stuff from the mid-to-late '90s than there is for all this '80s bobbins.

I don't know why likes of Namco aren't playing to the 90's Nostalgia as companies are just got to look at two of today's releases Crash and Micro Machines.

The thing is, 90s nostalgia will never financially be the powerhouse that 80s nostalgia was. That generation had such a perfect hand dealt to them, with disposable income allowing them to indulge but the slightly blurred memory that came from a pre-internet age. I've got much less spending power than the people my age 10-20 years ago had, and throughout my life whenever I've thought about a game, film or cartoon from my childhood I've only been a quick google away from the answers. If they re-released Digimon World tomorrow, it wouldn't be some half-remembered classic I was rediscovering because the truth has always been readily available to me.

I can confirm the above - although with regards to the above above, Micro Machines was the early 90s, so I'd still say that's old enough for what I would call "actual proper nostalgia" (although I understand the new Micro Machines is a bit basic). But I think you guys are right, in that Namco, when talking about their museum of work, I suspect the people that are deciding this are a bit older than us, and that the 90s are only 5 minutes ago to them.
Cappa, you're dead right, Dig Dug* is a load of shit. However, I don't think I own the original PacMan*, and actually being able to play PacMan Vs would be a good thing indeed - it sort of felt legendary after NGC magazine. So I think I'm going to get it.


*As an Acorn Electron owner, I knew these games as The Mine and Snapper, because the early UK games development scene was embarrassing.

How would Namco know this if they've never tried? I think the fact that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is completely sold out in my town (Aberdeen) shows that there's a definite appetite for new old (if that makes sense).

And Dig Dug is all right! It's just that it's been brought out again more times than milk. No joke, there's more Dig Dug in the world than there is actual milk.

Crash from what I'm hearing is sold-out all over the country, seems they underestimated the hype for a 90's Classic.

I don't know about the other games you mentioned, but isn't Time Crisis knackered with new TVs not being compatible with lightguns?

A straight port, sure, but Wii and Wii-esque controls can recreate lightgun classics pretty accurately.

True... the issue is that the Joycons don't have a pointer on them, do they?

No, but Skyward Sword's aiming was all motion controlled and that worked a treat. It'd just have to get you to centre at the start of each level, I guess.

Yeah even though the Joy-Cons don't a pointer like Wiimote had it can be used as one as just look as World of Goo, it is something people have looked past that the Joy-Con can do what a Wiimote can do with no sensor and on the go.

What more SK DLC is coming?

Not yet but I think I'm going to get that plus GoNNER.

EDIT:

I have Mighty gunvolt burst now & have cleared 2 stages, the customisation of the weapons is interesting but I don't know how deep I'll get into that as I'm yet to see any real payoff for doing it. I noticed in the controls menu that you can have skills is this just for Gunvolt or do you get them for Beck as well?
