Review Prodeus - A Master Class in Modern Retro Shooters

Prodeus is a game that's been on my radar for a while. I don't know whether it's the beautifully crafted retro aesthetic, the DOOM-inspired run and gun style action, or the sprinkles of nostalgia found in every little hand-crafted detail, but this game, more than any other in recent memory manages to take me right back to simpler times where I would spend hours upon hours with my eyes glued to a computer screen.

This is a game which caught my interest way back when it was first revealed in 2018 and I have been following the project on social media ever since. I've spent about four days now playing the Prodeus closed-beta, and while I knew going in that the game would not disappoint, I was not prepared for just how much the game is to play, it's clear that 'Bounding Box's first offering is something the team are extremely passionate about. Every tiny detail feels like it was hand-crafted and built based on real love for the project, and that's something that's becoming harder and...

XenForo 2.2 Upgrades are live!

Awhile back we mentioned XenForo 2.2 is coming which has many changes. We put out warnings some older features would break and sadly in this case the OG 2020 themes did break due to the new features.

We'll be enabling legacy themes over the coming few days which will look and feel like the old ones but won't be the same fully. They'll just be there for legacy reasons and for those that run older hardware.

Currently only light themes are live but there's also many bonus features lurking such as our new web app for android.


You may spot bugs and if you do please report here asap, we'd need a screenshot, device name/browser and version used to help speed things up.

I won't bore you more here so will get back to finising up the dark themes.

EDIT: Dark theme semi sorted, and people forget each year but...
Review Taito Chase H.Q. + S.C.I Review

It's been a while, hasn't it?
Don't ask me why I've been away for so long after saying I'd come back, I couldn't give you a good enough reason.

Back in the days that arcade games were still ported to new consoles because those said consoles couldn't handle that game being emulated, we have two games from the Taito Z System. Taito's Chase HQ and Taito's SCI. Chase HQ, being more of a classic to Japanese gamers, and SCI, being remembered by not really anybody. That's not to include Chase HQ II, which was a Mega Drive only game, interestingly enough known as Super HQ in Japan, while being released overseas as Chase HQ II. Not to be confused with the 2007 arcade game that nobody remembers. There was also a third game in arcades that nobody remembers, and with all the space they had on this disc, they really could have and should have included it.

Why is Chase HQ mostly remembered by Japanese gamers instead of WW gamers? More of a hunch than an assumption, based on the fact that the...
