There's a really interesting youtube video I'll try to link you sometime about how different languages, no matter how unrelated, always name the colours in the same order.

I took my daughters to this neat arcade in Bristol - you had all the consoles there and a bunch of old arcade cabinets. Paid a fee and you could play all day. We had a bash on Wind Jammers, Rave Racer, Pop n' Music 7, Dance Dance Revolution 2, and they had a go on Sonic 2, Super Mario World, Virtua Tennis...

I'd heard about some of these arcade clubs in places like Bury, Manchester and Birmingham, but nice that there's one in the South West too Grin

I like that so many of these arcades, barcades and exhibitions are popping up nowadays. I live in a seaside town where most of the nearby amusements closed down a couple of decades ago. But trends like that give me a bit of hope that we’ll see the likes of those again, even if they’re only in the cities like Glasgow and Edinburgh.

I’m off work with two weeks of annual leave to use up, and among other things I was hoping to pay a bit of attention to my backlog. There’s two DS games I’ve been playing since Sunday morning, Meteos and Hotel Dusk: Room 215. Meteos is Meteos, it’s a class game with a brilliant concept that’s excellently pulled off.

Hotel Dusk is maybe a bit more interesting. I think I’d mentioned recently that I’ve never played it before. I’m sure Buskalilly reviewed it somewhere recently, and I’d seen that gjones put it’s sequel in his top thirty list. Those put Hotel Dusk into my head, and now here I am. I’ve just finished Chapter 2.

It was the sequel I finished recently, but I did finish Hotel Dusk only a year or two ago as well. Both highly recommended by your boy.

I've not played the first game, but Last Window properly sucked me in. Whatever you do, don't play it on a 2DS, as there's a folding the screen puzzle in it. I still need to go back and complete it.

Jay was talking about playing 999 but was doing it on PS4, the game has some puzzles/story elements using the DS much as you say about Last Window that I wonder how it translates to the single screen?

Last Window is one of a few DS games I always look out for in a CEX etc

We've still got the arcade in bridgwater, not been in for years though, I should see if any new machines in there.

What a double! Grin Both of them really special games. Keen to read those Dusky thoughts when/if you finish it. Meanwhile I ought to give Meteos another go.

Would you presumably not just put the machine into sleep mode, and trick the console that way?

Played the first two chapters on Radiant Dawn, it doesn't look bad for its age but is a tad grey & dull in places.

What is even more grey is PS3 launch game Resistance Fall of Man, which is now back online. I decided to play some of it, and umm the default controls are awful, then playing everything is grey or beige that it's ridiculously hard to tell who or what anything is as it all looks that dam same.

For all that us Nintendo fanboys slagged off the BBoP games of the era for looking grey-brown while we were stuck with the SD Wii, occasionally we had a point. Usually by accident, it feels like.

I'm going to give the PS3 the benefit of doubt seeing Resistance Fall of Man is 16 years old and launch game. Plus I played Journey on it last year and that looks fantastic still.

Same with the Wii even with its SD'ness and Radiant Dawn being rather grey, hopefully much like Journey stuff with great artstyles hold up well.
