Re: Videogame News

Cool what do you think of them? I've only played SOTC and Fallout 4 with them so far, but both sound great. The guns in Fallout are ear splitting! The shotgun especially! Overall quality is fantastic and I find them comfortable too. I played God of War III, Ni No Kuni 2, Bioshock, Resident Evil VII...

Re: Videogame News

We don't seem to have a general 'catch all' gaming thread, so posting this here. I'm so close to getting these, can anyone vouch for the quality? They seem a decent price, £69.99 - I've seen the previous models selling for more than that, but I don't want to get them if they're duffers. Thanks! htt...

Re: All things God of War

Finished God of War III tonight. This means I’ve finished the whole series except Ascension and obviously Friday’s new addition.

III was my favourite for sure.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Story wise, it's kind of a mixed bag so far. None of it is bad per se, but a lot of it feels kind of like filler. The beginning is pretty odd though. Without spending forever getting bogged down in minutiae, a lot of very outrageous things happen right at the start, but then the story seems to just...

Re: Dark Souls I, II and III

It's a shame that the Switch version has been delayed but hopefully it leads to a better experience. I'll probably get the game on both PS4 and NS, PS4 works better for friends and I'm interested in the graphical improvements, Switch because the idea of playing Dark Souls away from the sofa or desk ...

Re: Final Fantasy (I) / Final Fantasy II

I own too many copies of Final Fantasy I and II. I own them physically on PS1, on GBA and on PSP and digitally on the WiiWare and PSN. I don’t know how this happened, I enjoyed the games when I played them and I didn’t dislike the second entry as much as many others do but with so many other games a...

Re: Destiny / The Taken King / Rise of Iron

Destiny is something to keep my hands busy, whilst my mind and mouth wander elsewhere. This is my experience of Destiny. The game (in my experience) is uninteresting - yes, mechanically it has a lot going for it but the story, PvE, PvP, level design (with the exception of some instanced content), ae...

Re: Our next-but-one podcast recording (20.8.17): The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

I picked up the original Witcher at release as an impulse buy at a local supermarket (back when they stocked PC games). Technical issues and cringe-worthy sexual depictations aside, this random buy kickstarted a love of the franchise which extends beyond just the videogames. For me (despite the bril...

Due to a series of dramas, illnesses and work commitments. My list (that I have maintained since I was 7 until last year) is no longer maintained. Still, games I have completed so far this month include: As speed runs: Pokémon Blue - 1h 59m Pokémon Red - 1h 57m Pokémon Yellow - 1h 52m Pokémon Black ...

Re: CaR MMO groups?

So, I know this is an old post - but just to add my bit on here. I think the lack of any CaR MMO groups come down to the way in which many of us play games in this community. It isn't true of everyone of course and you'll find many exceptions to the rule but a large portion of posters on this forum ...

Finnaly got around to watch Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2, took me awhile especially since guadians 1 is my favorite thing out of the entire MCU and while vol 2 is still pretty great I have to say that enjoyed the first one a bit more, I think the first movie was better paced and was this fresh tak...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

So, I'm sure it's already been mentioned but I feel The Evil Within is a really good fit for the Cane and Rinse formula. It has a plot worth discussing (don't read good or bad here, just worth discussing), it has gameplay variety and it has a legacy tying to other popular games - notably covered by ...
