@BlueOcean Mega Man 1 is a rough one start with If you can beat it, the rest will be easy as it's the hardest of the original NES six. It's still a good game, but they hadn't quite refined it yet like they did with 2 thru 4 (which would be my favourites of the classic series, they really got it right with those ones, couldn't even guess how many times I've replayed them over the years). 5 & 6 are just as good control and physics wise, but the level design wasn't quite as good, IMO.

PC - The Witcher 3, Nier: Automata, Mortal Kombat XL

@subpopz It's good to know that. I just beat a boss in Mega Man (1). After I beat the game I'll play the second.

I thought the other versions of MMLC were supposed to get an update when the Switch version released (well, bar 3DS). Did they really wait over half a year?

@Delibheel Indeed. Wave Race Blue Storm is a game that I still play every now and then. Too bad that they have never made a new game in this series on the Wii or Wii U, or even an HD reboot. They just went from strength to strength with that IP, but apparently, it just didn't sell enough for the series to return in this day and age, much like with F-Zero and 1080 Snowboarding, two other fan favorites with great controls and physics.

@ReaderRagfish True, and the physics were off as well. Wave Race 64 was king, back then.

Oh, and being tempted to go somewhere tropical? That's what summer holidays are for...

@ThanosReXXX 1080 was one of my favorite N64 games at the time. I still enjoy it too. I had the sequel on Gamecube and that was good too, but I didn't like it as much. It didn't help that it was now competing against SSX, which was awesome.

@ReaderRagfish For me it was exactly the other way around: I really liked SSX (and all of its sequels), but those games were REALLY over the top, whereas 1080 stayed more true to the actual experience of snowboarding, even though that did also have some over the top levels, but not as much as SSX, and of course, in real snowboarding, there's no 'turbo gauge' or gaining speed by doing tricks.

Don't get me wrong: it's definitely fun to play, but in my opinion, the more pure experience is the better one.

That is also what I liked about Wave Race. And like with Wave Race, the elements physics and feel in 1080 was, and in some ways still is, second to none. I own a lot of snowboarding games, including all the SSX games, the Shaun White games, Amped and so on, but I still prefer 1080, and although it'll probably never happen, but if they would ever make a new game in that series (and Wave Race AND F-Zero), then I'm going to be jumping for joy, like a little kid on Christmas Eve...

@ThanosReXXX N64 1080 was pretty true to real snowboarding, but I feel 1080 Avalanche strayed from that with spinning the control stick to regain balance and tricks filling up meter to activate super mode where you're faster and more sturdy. And I think SSX did over the top better than Avalanche.

N64 1080 and SSX are pretty much equal in my book, with Avalanche a little bit behind both.

@ReaderRagfish Hm, that's not how I felt. I always likened the spinning the control stick to flailing your arms to stay balanced, so it made perfect sense to me, even though it was somewhat of an odd and/or annoying inclusion. Then again; simply pressing a button to get up again also isn't really very representative of the real thing...

And that meter in 1080 was more of an adrenaline bar to me, also more close to reality, but most of these actions were probably also a bit limited due to them having to work with the available controls. We didn't have motion controls yet, back then. Probably for the better, though, otherwise it would have been a decidedly lesser snowboard game....

And of course, 1080 was never about being an over the top game, even though they did a couple of levels in each game that were more out there, but still no wonder that SSX did over the top better.

But regardless, both series are fun to play, but for those looking for a more true experience, they'd probably need to steer clear from any of the SSX games, save perhaps for the last one on previous gen consoles, which was a better mix of arcade and realism, in my opinion.

Panzer Dragoon Orta is half price in the current sale fyi!

@BlueOcean Oh that's cool.....such a shame that's not in the MegaMan X collection, though it does have rookie mode.

@ThanosReXXX Oh it had great water physics, but the real test is the transparency, occlusion, and specularity! Sheesh, everyone knows that!

"How's the water" is up there next to "does it run Crysis?"

Yeah Nintendo's really gone in that Apple-like direction of "We'll tell you what you should like right now. The official game to like for this month is: abcxyz" Though I suppose that fits the Japanese way very well where everybody does the same thing, the same way, at the same time, as a norm.

We agree more times than not. We have our points of disagreement, and we're both stubborn, but >50% of the time we agree

I agree. I think the fundamentals of the world changed too significantly. Yes it's "faster" and "the internet" but the underpinnings entirely changed. The economic underpinnings, the definitions of normal, family, purpose in life, etc. They essentially are foreign invaders that grew up in an entirely different civilization and culture than the one(s) the older generations grew up with. The very fact that an overwhelming majority of them grew up raised by a mixture of for-profit daycare companies and government institutions rather than attentive parents, while parents both dedicate their lives to The Company has engineered them to have specific ways of thinking directed toward specific socially engineered outcomes. That happens to a point every generation that things were different, but it's at a gradual pace until this time, and never in the past was the underpinning of family itself replaced with institutions before. The ugly reality is it's a generation that would have more in common with 1950's children in the USSR than any of us, but with the ugly bent of internet generated narcissism atop it.

Though at times I still wonder if there's even more than that to it. In either case we, and our values seem more and more to be deemed obsolete and irrelevant, so I suppose we'll either be cared for as pets, or simply executed as useless eaters at some point. Better get that backlog in before it's too late!

@rjejr should be grumpy enough to join in. He's still struggling to make sense of the world in a post-FF PS exclusivity world.

@ThanosReXXX Oops sorry, meant to reply to you just above for my daily dose of acidity.

My world has come full circle. 30 years ago me and my droogies were dressing up like Alex and Georgie Boy for a little of the old moloko plus and ultraviolence, now I'm a drunkie in an alley. Well actually I never leave my house for fear of becoming a drunkie in an a alley. Videogames used to be my escape, but now even they fail to cheer me up. I'm gonna skip this discussion then, whatever it is, I don't even own an Xbox.

You'll have an Xbox by the end of 2019.

My curse is set.

@Delibheel I mean, my brother has one. I don't think that counts though.

I wouldn't mind having an original Xbox eventually though.

@ReaderRagfish You don't enter Thanos' XBox conversations and not buy an XBox 1. it's not possible. It's not allowed. He'll get to you eventually. There's no escape. You'll get an XBox 1. Even if you have to win one from Oprah.

Clearly he convinced me to get mine before I even visited this thread. His influence is vast. Must be that shiny new glove he recently got.

I also love 1080° and Wave Race, specifically Wave Race Blue Storm and 1080° Snowboarding that I still play. Blue Storm was my first GameCube game and it's one of the best GameCube games. It was a launch game in here.

@NEStalgia Capcom took their time to update it buy it's finally here. What is Rookie Mode? I grabbed Panzer Dragoon Orta as soon as I saw the sale (on Tuesday) but wasn't around to comment. You guys can get the deal from now through Monday.

@DarthNocturnal Do you want to play Sea of Thieves with me? Who else plays?
