...which conversely means that the parodies are excellent.

That era of Videogamer was a time to treasure. Well worth going back and digging up some of their old videos.

I've just realised that Matty, the new guy at work, is literally Millbob IRL. He's so happy and excited about everything.

I'm guessing that means you like the fella, rather than resenting his existence like I would.

Quite disappointed that there's no Toy Story 4 game. The original 1995 2D platformer by Traveller's Tales is superb, it's got loads of variety and bright ideas right the way through. The 1999 sequel - Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue!, on PSone, Dreamcast, N64 and maybe others - is a very good example of late 90s 3D platforming. Toy Story 3: The Videogame on Wii, PS3, 360 and all that is very good too, it's a bit underrated in my opinion.

I wish there was a Toy Story 4 game. I'd even be tempted to play the Toy Story 4 chapter from Kingdom Hearts 3 if there was a way to skip the rest of the game, that's how much I'd want a new Toy Story game.

Heard good things about Toy Story 3 on 360 and it's backwards compatible, I may have to check it out.

Games are as expensive to make as films these days so bashing one out as tie-in merchandise no longer makes sense.

A Toy Story 4 game wouldn't have been a four-disc, hundred hour epic with six year's development and a Grand Theft Auto V budget though. And it'd have sold millions. Still, I'm not that arsed about the business stuff; I just wanted another good Toy Story game, and I'm disappointed that there isn't one for my own selfish reasons.

I think it’s just the lost middle ground though right? Indies can’t afford the licence and triple a devs are looking for games that last forever. The only real way it’d work is if Disney went to an indie and got them to make it.

That all being said, they could've made one on Switch i reckon. I'd have had a bash at Toy Story 4 on Switch.

This has got to be it really. There's not much of a 'double A' industry any more. All the 'double A' developers get bought out and chewed up.

Side note: I'm a little sad you've figured out how to get apostrophes working on Topic'it. The ’ or whatever was irritating, but at the same time oddly charming in a way.

One of the reasons why I love Plague Tale so much, you don't get games like that anymore.

Walking down Union Street in Glasgow city centre and I go to pop into the G-Force Games independent shop like a I usually do...and it's away, shut down after twenty-seven years!

It turns out this happened over a month ago, and it was on some of the British games newsites too. Rightly so; it was a gaming institution that's very disappointing to see gone. For a long time, it was the absolute best gaming shop in Scotland too. Fair enough, over the last five years the service couldn't have been less enthusiastic, their prices were at times really high and it didn't seem like they shifted a lot of their stock (with games sitting unbought for literally years). So, I can sort of understand why it's closed.

But I must have visited that shop hundreds of times over the last twenty-years-or-so, and I'd bought so much from there. Mint copies of Banjo-Tooie, Rocket Knight Adventures and Crazy Taxi 2 were just three of the games I bought when I was getting back into retro gaming in the mid-2000s, at a time when I was too young to be ordering things myself and well before Gamestation, CEX and the rest were selling the same things. G-Force was important in me regaining my interest in games again.

Most brilliantly though was their consistency in breaking street dates. You could reliably go there on a Monday or Tuesday and pick up a game that wasn't due out until the Friday. I bought several FIFA, Sonic and WWE games early there, I even got a couple of the Professor Layton games before they were out in the USA somehow. It was great for that.

I'm rambling, but I'll not have the chance to again - G-Force is closed for good. Aww!

It's a shame and I was in my sort of local recently which now does a few other things like Pop figures, American Candy along with games. You hear the owner talking to someone that 13 years etc now don't go into a game shop, they download stuff and that they don't shift that much PS4, Xbox One, Switch etc

I'm sure they pointed to me, about me coming in on the day they got in and buying the OG Xbox games. I guess that the people going in aren't buying PS4 games but retro, which I could see myself, as a few games that were in the cabinet last time I went in such as Castlevania Bloodlines had gone.

Sad times indeed. Sorry for your, and Glasgow's, loss Cappa.

The only game stores I know down here at all are GAME and CEX, neither deals much in retro gubbins, and neither are really a substitute for a proper local games shop... but the former especially is better than nothing, and seeing one doing well enough to survive in a small town like Staines was nice. Having said that I'll probably get my next big retail title (Astral Chain most likely) from ShopTo, so I'm part of the problem.

That really is shitty to hear, I went to the G force in clydebank a tonne and I was gutted when that one shut down a good few years back, it honestly was the best game shop ever!

Aye, we had a couple of independent games shop close down years back over my way too. Like Balla, all that remains is GAME (which is basically a Funko Pop and gaming hoodie store now anyway) and CEX. It's a shame as there's nothing quite like browsing through a games store and seeing what you can find.

With Balla talking about parentage elsewhere, what're some of your parent's fav games?

I reckon my Dad's Top 10 would like this
Streets of Rage 2
Sonic 2
Mortal Kombat II
Heart of Darkness
Tekken 3
FIFA 99
Resident Evil 2
Crash Bandicoot 2
Golden Axe 2
FPS which he can't play unless you include looking at the floor or sky most of the time.

The closest my mum ever got to playing a game was about 5/10 minutes of the darts mini game in SMB banana blitz.

My dad's got a very specific taste in games in that he likes the new Tomb Raider games, The Last of Us and the Uncharted games. He's not touched anything else, although he did beat Super Ghouls n Ghosts back in the day. Shocked

My parents haven't ever gotten games, they're very much of the persuasion that games are evil. Sleep

My dad and the one's I picked are things I played as a kid and he could as due to co-op or vs but after the PS1 everything got a bit to complicated and I had mates etc to play games with.

Heart of Darkness though, I know he played even without me.

My parents used to play Worms and Micro Machines with some regularity on the PS1, and I'd play Tekken and Future Cop LAPD with my dad. Before that, he was a bit of a PC Gamer with his DOOM and ELITE and all that. Nowadays, I think the closest they get is mobile games. I mentioned before that my dad was super into Subterfuge and my mum likes scrabble type things, like Words With Friends.

Overall, though, my family are much more interested in tabletop gaming these days. If they have a favourite game, it's something like Settlers of Catan. They even go to a board game convention!
