Re: Games Completed 2018

Astrobot (PSVR) Quite entertaining. X4: Foundations (PC) I've lost the entire last week to the latest in the X Series from Egosoft - a long-running space logistics and combat game, with the emphasis on building an empire. You may remember the catastrophic launch of its predecessor, X: Rebirth, a fe...

Re: Virtual Reality

I would say an Aim controller is essential for Farpoint. I don't have one, and had to hold the DS4 up to my eye (as if I was aiming through it) for the whole game :D

Whether Farpoint is worth the investment, I couldn't say. ;)

Re: Virtual Reality

Can you set the overall difficulty to easy, or does the game do that stage by stage for you? I couldn't find a setting, some stages appear to be easy, some medium/normal. Though, in this case I think the fact that I had to play seated, and closer to the camera than the game would like was causing so...

Re: Virtual Reality

Don't overdo it at the start; if you feel yourself getting queasy, set it aside for a bit. Powering through is not a good option, it just seems to be the worst thing you can do.

Oh man, I was hoping Subnautica was going to come out in around Jan. Really looking forward to playing it on PS4.

Re: Demon's Souls

I know, and he's not providing enough updates, right? :)

It's a strange one, but I know people love hearing about someone else's progress through this game. Never gets old.

Re: What's Out This Week?

Oh god, X4 Foundations came out yesterday. It's a space/economics sim and I put a good bit of time into X3 Albion Prelude earlier this year though I didn't mention it much on here. It apparently has seamless transitions between ships and stations. In theory you could land your ship at a station you ...

Re: Virtual Reality

Yeah, so far it’s hard to recommend PSVR to too many people. You really have to try it properly in a comfortable environment to know if there’s value and potential in it for you. Definitely; I got a loan of my brother's for a few weeks before deciding to get it. You also have to temper your expecta...

Re: Virtual Reality

Yeah, I mean don't get me wrong, I'm just approaching it from the point of view that if KSub bought VR solely on account of the Tetris Effect, there's a possibility he'd be disappointed. He could also be blown away, but I'm leaning towards disappointment :)

Re: Demon's Souls

Good work; don't worry about Rydell, things will develop there. Yes, if you are a magic user you should most definitely be buying spells from Freke. You'll need them more than any of the special weapons you can make otherwise. Great stuff doing it without a guide. I have to say, with this guy's serv...

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

50 MB a second? I get either 3 or 5 MB/s on the PS4, on a 100MB line; I always thought it was capped.

Re: Demon's Souls

Excellent work. Did you free Sage Freke from the cells? You'll start bumping into a few familiar faces from now on as well.

Re: Virtual Reality

Re lack of space: remember you don’t have to face the tv, just the camera, which could be mounted on a different wall or elsewhere. Subject to the length of the camera cable of course. Not that I’m encouraging you to get it, I wouldn’t be able to live with myself. I’m also a dissenter on Tetris; gre...

Re: Virtual Reality

I dunno, even in VR, I doubt controlling a fixed camera in the corner of the room would be compelling :D

Slippery slope alert! Don't be tempted Ksub, the games so far are everything you dislike in modern gaming, and then some.

Re: Virtual Reality

There seems to be quite a bit of take-up on PSVR this Black Friday; looks like the thing hit the right price point at last.

I got messages from several PSN buddies asking me for tips (one had given up on the Vive becoming affordable) and Twitter seems afire with AstroBot-adopters.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Well, I thought I’d get ahead of you in case you needed a dig out :)

Plus, I know all the shortcuts, enemy placement etc, and haven’t been collecting stones or upgrading anything.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

On the final level of Demon's Souls now. Maneater was the only serious threat to my glass cannon Magician, and I'll be taking down the Old King by means of subterfuge, so not long now.

Urgh, and I forgot the Blue Dragon. Not so easy when your bow does 5 damage.
