Along with Rainbow Six, got Dragon Quest Heroes for PS4 from Boomerang today. I think it can be best summed up as "Ok".
It seems like it's trying to emulate Hyrule Warriors, but is inferior in almost every way. The maps aren't as big, battles aren't as grand, there's less going on, the gameplay is much shallower and the story isn't as interesting. The only real advantage that Dragon Quest has so far is full voice acting for the protagonists.

That video explains why Saturn emulation is so difficult.

Seega. :dread:

Good video though. It makes you realise just how clever some of the people in the mod/emu scene are. That guy for managing to crack and document it all, and the emu guys for managing to make a functioning emulator with such large pieces of the puzzle missing. I'll need to keep an eye on that actually as I could do with a USB plug in for my Saturn. :lol:

Has anyone else ever played Boom Street (/Fortune Street) on the Wii?

It's rigged, right?

Man, I am convinced that "See-ga" is the correct way of saying it; when the Master System launched in the UK, everyone was saying See-ga. But then, thanks to Sonic on the Mega Drive, most folk switched to "Say-ga". Nowdays it's nearly all "Say-ga".

Unite, SEE-GA crew!

In addition to my US PSN account being compromised this week, I was downloading Hitman last night and the download was going far too slow to believe. A couple of megs at full throttle, then zero, then hours of 300Kb/s with long pauses. So I deleted the install and went to put it on another drive. Full speed all the way. And then I benchmarked the problem drive and it was at like 19IOPS for writing. NINETEEN.

So that drive's failing, and I had to order a replacement.

Went to bed seething at the unexpected cost. Lifted my Vita to take my mind off it, and it told me I shouldn't have removed the memory card while it was in use (didn't even touch it). Reboot it and it won't start up. Remove the memory card and it works fine. Put it back in and it's bricked again. Run the recovery menu, go to format the card, and it tells me there is no card in. So that's a super-expensive 64GB Vita card strawberry floating fried too.

What a week.

Damn, thats some bad luck you've had this week. Fingers crossed thats the last of it!

I've not played anything so far this month, i'm stuck in regards to what I want to play next. I've got tons to play but i'm not really in the mood to play most of it (The hot weather hasn't helped)

The Wii version?

I find that on any given game, at least one computer player will always role the exact dice role they need to land on the next favourable spot, every single time, without fail. :x

Yep, wii version. I've only ever played it in multiplayer though so we've always had at least 3 human players and only ever 1 computer. They never did particularly well!

If you get chance try it in SP and let me know what you reckon. I'm convinced the game is rigged from start to finish.

I've always said it as Say-ga.

I'm not sure there actually is a 'correct' pronunciation as it's a contraction of Service Games (the companies original name).

I know it's an old story now and nothing can be done... but what on earth has happened to Sega? Back in the 80s and 90s they were a big player in the market. Nowdays, my immediate thought is "they publish Football Manager and are trying to resurrect Sonic. Again." They're not bad as such, and I know they do have a few franchises, but they just seem to be shrinking.

I fully expect to go home and find my regular PSN account banned now and all the games on it lost forever.

There's an argument to be made for Seh-Gaa.

But to me it'll always and forever be Say-Gaa.

They're much more of a PC publisher these days.

Creative Assembly, Sports Interactive and I believe Relic are owned by them.

It should obviously be pronounced as it's written: セガ. What you're saying is シガ. You're welcome.
