The more I notice some retro titles come to Nintendo Switch and also in the form of the ‘Classic’ console series, the more I get convinced I don’t think there’ll be a Virtual Console, only re-releases.
At the Tomb Raider Suite last December, I bumped into a LetsPlayer I had been watching on his YouTube for years, and in person he was just as decent.
Last week, me and Nathan reunited again for two videos on his channel, where he played through the level ‘Fools Gold‘ from Tomb Raider II: Golden Mask.
We talked about our thoughts of the Suite, its Kickstarter earlier this year, and my ‘polarising’ thoughts on Tomb Raider IV.
It’s in two parts, both of which were released last Thursday and Friday.
You can watch them both below.
Tomb Raider and Sonic have a incredible amount of passionate fans out there.
After so long, nostalglia takes hold and a large amount remember the time when there first played their game in the series.
Eventually, fans follow their passion and end up working in an official capacity, such as Sonic Mania.
Or, in the case of this demo, they approve a fan-made remake.
I follow Games Done Quick every January and July with their ‘AGDQ’ & ‘SGDQ’ events since 2013. Due to the recent catastrophe in Texas due to Hurricane Harvey, they have quickly set up a weekend stream to donate towards the residents who have been severely affected by it.
An amazing idea, and very impressive that it’s already raised over fifty thousand dollars since it was decided on Wednesday that the stream would occur.
You can watch and donate right here.
Today a game that’s been in Kickstarter has launched on Steam Early Access and Itch.io.
Priced for £10.79 until the 15th August, it’s available on Windows, macOS and Linux.
I’ve been playing it the past week and impressions are incoming.
Think of it as if ‘Syndicate’ and ‘Rez’ had a dance-off one day.
The scene from The Matrix where Neo first meets Trinity also reminds me of it.
But so far, impressions are good.
