Excellent game, well worth a play at that price.

These are the kinds of details that I will never remember from films.

It also only works if you write the date the wrong way around.

Totally fine if you've only watch the first film as its not referred to as LV-426 that was just in Aliens :shifty:

I’ve been waiting for that to get discounted on Xbox for so long, and it’s finally been reduced there too. But annoyingly, only down to £4.79. Buying it on Switch would seem the sensible choice but backwards compatibility has to be a factor. It’s pretty much my all-time no.1, and I want it easily playable for as long as possible. (I mean, I’ve still got the MegaDrive version, but it’s inconvenient.)

I can imagine the graphics being quite at home on the smaller screen. 89p drops it into 'no-brainer' territory for me.

And lovely to hear someone talk of it so highly. I adored it too: genuinely special atmosphere.

I loved it back on the megadrive, but never owned a copy. I used to borrow it and over from my mates. Despite playing it loads, I never got very far in it.

As you say, 89p is a no brainer :toot:

Me and a mate played it at retro video game convention in Margate about 5 years ago. It was playing on an Amiga 1200 with a Zipstick. Absolute heaven.

Good point about the smaller screen. I rarely use the Switch in handheld mode. 89p though. Sod it, I’ll get both.

Ended up getting Flashback. I mean, they were giving it away.
