Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

How are you finding it? I thought the gameplay lacked ‘bottom’, and I kind of blamed the cardgame-like events as I found them inconsequential, or maybe I didn’t understand what I was supposed to get out of them. The game may have been improved since release though.

Re: Games Completed 2018

Considering my real world sporting team fired the head coach during their most successful season in quite a few years (lost in the finals), perhaps Park Baseball is getting it right! :D In fairness, I'd had a great run of injury luck in the previous four seasons, so maybe the game was justified inj...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

The new Williams tables on Pinball FX 3 are superb, particularly Medieval Madness. It looks stunning and plays like a dream. Can’t get enough of it! Oh man, this was one of my favourites on Pinball Arcade, what a great table! I never really liked Pinball FX as it feels too artificial for me (says s...

Re: Games Completed 2018

Finally won the World Series in Out of the Park Baseball 19 (after 5 seasons as an expansion team) so I suppose it can be looked upon as 'finished'. Unfortunately it was the season where the game decided it would do everything it could to get me fired, so it wasn't actually very enjoyable. I might c...

When I finished it I tried to give it to many people but they all looked at me strangely so I still have it. Maybe I should carry it around in my bag and keep trying.

I enjoyed both earlier series but didn't listen till the end.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finished season 4 of my Out of the Park Baseball expansion league; it's a text sim like Football Manager, but for baseball. Still looking to win the big one; as usual I was the best team in the regular season with 108 wins but this time I lost the World Series to the Dodgers, 4-3. My Cy Young-winnin...

No, I was referring to Exploration Mode (it may not be called that).

Edit: I am not playing anything. :D

Re: Games Completed 2018

System Shock I think I need to learn to stop playing when I’m not enjoying something but I struggle with leaving things unfinished. I think I’ll give it a while before I try the sequel. System Shock 2 is rough enough also; I'd imagine it's miles more playable than 1 though (I haven't played 1 and d...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Thanks for the AC Odyssey updates folks; sounds interesting but a bit flawed. And then there's the question of whether a significant number of people would actually use it. Kudos to Ubi for making the effort.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Is anybody playing AC Odyssey in Exploration Mode, where they do away with the icons and you need to find your way to quests using environmental clues? Curious as to how well it works.

Re: Your favorite game trailers

The background to this one is that the Chicago Cubs hadn't won the World Series in baseball since 1908, despite playing in a massive market and having loads of cash; their drought was legendary in American sports.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finally weaned myself off Spintires for an evening and took The Golf Club 2019 out for a couple of rounds. This was an independently-developed game for its first two iterations, but in this latest one they've struck up a partnership with 2K and have got six actual PGA courses in the game. Its big cl...

Man, the rate at which you are smashing through all these landmark games is staggering for a number of reasons.
I know, next year will be very disappointing for Simon with none of these classics left to lean on :)

Re: Deadly Premonition - Cane & Rinse 93

I must listen to this again.

Simon, if you were interested, Gamecritics did an eleven-part series on the game when it was released; dunno how this holds up eight years later but could be worth a look before moving on :)

My tastes have clearly changed over the years, because I'd now much rather spend my Friday nights with a bottle of Chimay and these abstract spaces than any mass-consumed open-world collectathon.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

That's more like it! :P It is niche for sure. I've used the short log trailer pretty much the entire game; I found the bigger trailers are hard to pull and get bogged down very easily, though I might tend towards underpowered trucks. I spent 4 hours over the past two days doing a single mission. I'm...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

The first time I played it I thought, it's ok. Then next morning I couldn't stop thinking about it, I had to stop work at 10am and play a game. I bet that happens to you too. :mrgreen:
