Well Ghost Trick took me 3.5 months, and its an 8-10 hour game apparently. I know there were a few puzzles that took me a couple of hours each to crack.

Hotel Dusk may not get any more play, I started Blasphemous (Switch but multiplatform) which I am enjoying - it's sonically overly dreary but very well put together. Once I get a bit deeper I'll post some thoughts, it feels like one worth playing.

Please update your opinion if it does pick up though.
I played through Hotel Dusk somewhat recently. I like adventure games, but the game felt like a slog. It never picks up. Originally I had thought I would play it and Last Window back to back. Nope. Had my share of it, thanks.

Ghost Trick took me months as well to finish :lol:

Oh well, at least I paid a decent price for them I can make back - I've got Last Window too.

G-Loc is out on the Japanese e-shop.

I see Panzer Dragoon "dropped" as well. Will wait for reviews. Seems a bit suspect.

PD Remake's physical release goes on sale tomorrow, so those reviews better start pouring in soon...

I'm hoping Shinsekai - Into The Depths gets a physical release. That one also dropped today.

Long load times and 30fps for PD remake. Otherwise it's supposed to be good. Colour me surprised. Preorders for the physical release are up:

https://limitedrungames.com/products/sw ... er-dragoon, $40
https://limitedrungames.com/products/sw ... ic-edition, $60 (w/ long box US Saturn replica case and some art booklet)

I kind of want to order, but I'll probably never going to get a Switch. No other console release for it :(

Wasted 20 quid on this. The shooting feels broken somehow, rotating the view is sluggish and the enemies and their projectiles are often hard to see. It’s just not very enjoyable to play. Particularly disappointing as it doesn’t bode well for their Zwei port, and that’s a much better game. It’s a shame SEGA licensed this to a bunch of amateurs.

Just play Orta on Xbox One and unlock the PC port instead.

That's disappointing. I've read mostly positive comments for it. There's an update planned update to fix the aiming in a week or so. Hopefully they'll address the slow rotation as well.

Man, the original game really needs a good remaster. It just performs really bad on the Saturn. It's almost Star Fox levels of bad. Sub-20FPS the whole game.

Zwei on the other hand is awesome. I'm perfectly happy playing the Saturn game.

EDIT: what the hell, I was just looking at videos of the original and in the comments someone mentioned there's a cheat that you can punch in that apparently makes the performance way better.



Wizard mode. At the title screen: L, R, L, R, Up, Down, Up, Down, Left, Right.

Caveats: only works in the NTSC versions, desyncs the music and some background detail is cut.

Lol, I don't love the look of the remake, too vibrant for me from the brief look I had of it.pangs initial suspicions were right by the sounds of it, I wish company's would stop releasing such broken crap,its putting me right of everything these days.

Didn't really enjoy Orta, and never got to spend time with the original when I had a Saturn.

If they manage to patch it all up properly and LRG confirm their print will contain all the patches... maybe I'll have a go? Dunno, rail shooters aren't something I've ever particularly enjoyed bar Star Fox on the SNES (and that solely as a product of the time and place).
