    Just watching those Streets of Rage trailers again, it does make me nostalgic, especially when the gameplay appeared. No platforms announced according to that second trailer though. It doesn't look to be too graphics intensive, so I wonder would they release it on smart phones? Hmmm, not sure I'd like to play it on such a small screen though. What platform would you want to play it on? Also, were they the two characters from the original game? It says Axle and Blaze are returning, but can't recall if they were both in the original? Also you said you are glad they kept it 2D, do you think if they made it 3D it would take away from the classic arcade feel? I'm not sure how I feel about it yet, games are very much more sophisticated these days, do you think the gameplay of a 2D sidescroller can hold up? Every PS4 game goes for £50 to start these days, surely they wouldn't expect to charge that much? Maybe PS and XBOX are not the target platforms though.

    Speaking of nostalgia, I went to see the Bumblebee movie last month Nog. Obviously Bay wasn't the Director and honestly it had a good story with an actress who can actually act. Also you will be glad to know that the Transformers themselves look much more like their 80's incarnations. It may just be the Transformers movie would have been waiting for lol.

    I have been playing God of War lately, it's quite good. It has a sort of Last of Us feel to it, except that it's set within Norse mythology, which I quite like :D. Have you had a chance to play it yourself? It's a father and son story, and the son is actually useful and helps you out, especially if you keep upgrading his capabilities!

    Ah I've been having problems lately with my home. Tiles coming off the roof and the piping at the back coming away from the wall in bad weather! Been a pain in the arse. So that's been what I've been up to since Christmas lol. Have you guys had a good Christmas? How was your New Years Eve? I went out to the pub with some friends, nothing to wild, but fun nonetheless.

    Also did you ever watch the Bruce Willis movie Unbreakable? Think it was in 1999. What did you think?

    Hey, I'm back. I keep missing the opportunity to respond until now. I'll acknowledge points from both your monthly posts. I agree about people going mad with xmas decorations these past few years. Some even insist on placing wired lights all over small trees. I've seen the wild west arcade shooter on old eps of Gamesmaster, was it called Mad Dog? I never saw it back in the day. I probably would have been very impressed. I never liked those grabber machines too much either they offered naff toy prizes. I remember winning a pay-as-go mobile phone from a stacker machine. I wonder if I still have the reflexes to win them nowdays. Once i saw Halo 3 inside those machines when it was a new game.

    Ah, SOR4 will prob cost £15 - £20 at most. Blaze & Axel are main playable characters from original game and the other guy was Adam who is kidnapped in the sequels storyline. I was going to say its not likely it will be out for smartphones, but i stand corrected given Steam does offer a free mobile app, just go create an account to browse it all, tons of demos on it aswell. It will be digital download on windows, steam and consoles much like Sonic Mania was. I also want to inform Toejam & Earl just got a new digital game (price £15) released as of March 1st. Oh man, it's early 90s all over again happy days! As for SOR4, there have been good reboots of old 2D fighting scrollers such as Double Dragon Neon over past decade that have made substantial dosh. Smaller studios often know how to attract retro gamers. If the devs made them 3D, it could be a very hit or miss affair. There's only one 3D beat 'em up (not inspired by old franchises) that pulled it off well called God Hand on PS2 which was one player. Check out gameplay on youtube if you desire for analysis. It's an unpopular genre to develop, I imagine because most studios don't see any commercial future in them overall. Besides that, Fighting Force comes to mind as it was 2-player co-op, good for its time, and intended to be Sega's own SOR4 briefly at one point. Explained further in wiki page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fighting_Force
    Glad to hear you've been enjoying God of War. I haven't tried it since i don't own PS4. I'm still going through unplayed PS3 titles in my home. This month it's been Tomb Raider (2013) which, incidently, plays more like Last of Us type of survival game :eek:
    Will you be playing Resi 2 at all? Definitely worth checking out I tried the steam demo its true to original. I uploaded my gameplay results of first attempt.


    I watched Unbreakable few years ago. Not entirely my cuppa tea. I decided to skip the film on initial release as I wasn't pleased seeing Willis move in to dramas/thrillers at the time :nono: Did you get around to seeing any Castlevania on Netflix? How about Long Good Friday?
    You mentioned old musicals. I also couldn't get onboard with some of them. I did used to really enjoy the zany Yellow Submarine as a kid. It's tricky to find a dvd copy of the film whenever I check in stores. Also never managed to find an upload of it online. Ebay is viable, but sod those prices. Yes, the recent Predator was more like a comedy sadly. Perhaps studios think the originals stealth/suspense-horror element wouldn't be very effective with young audiences in this day & age. They ought to be making it for us ageing hardcore fans dammit.
    Also, speaking of eighties action cinema, I found a superb remedy to make up for The Predafail. Mainly a ultra violent parody of Commando overall: youtube.com/watch?v=No6isuzn0FQ

    Not a driver myself or vehicle enthusiast, I know you potentially are. I'm aware car design changed curvy to blocky once or twice over time. Do you think this video informs accurate history at all?
