Re: Videogame News

Konami have a lot of dormant stuff from the 80s and early 90s arcade scene, as do Namco. But none of that is really worth working up into something over just doing new IP really.

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

Kingdoms of Amular Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is on our long list already. Sadly they never got to continue the series! Yet. Someone recently picked up the rights to it... at the very least we might see it as a back compat on the XBO, but there’s a chance we might get more games in this series a...

Re: Assassins Creed Odyssey

Ah ok. The way it’s delivered if you let him live made me think that he might not get to say it if you shanked him. It is kinda the central plot point from that point on I guess. One thing I am realising as I play this is that there’s a definite change in scale going on here compared to earlier in t...

Re: Assassins Creed Odyssey

I did the opposite of both those decisions: The first: He gives up his command and ‘disappears’ into the wilderness. His troops all think he’s dead, but because they never found a body some people are still searching for him. A side quest around this pops up later. He also drops some exposition befo...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

Ok, this might be stretching the limit of the ‘no licensed music’ bit, but bear with me. Mike Ault joined the Rocket League team to compose music for the game, while they were in development he stuffed in a bunch of tracks he’d worked on privately prior to working there. In the end they kinda stuck ...

Re: Comic Book Chatter

Spidey is a little like Batman in that there’s been so many different writers with their own take on the character, so many gritty reboots, so many good, great and awful storylines, that you’re pretty. Much bound to find something in there you like.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

You’d think the spartan kick ability would get old after 50 or so hours. It does not. The game knows this and so has the AI go stand on cliff edges with their backs to you, tempting you to break cover and deliver them a kick. Then you die cause you’re not sneaking anymore and half the game world is ...

Re: Custom Soundtracks

I guess I’m not explaining it well. The original Xbox has an api where the *game* could control when and where the users music would be used. So it could still choose to use its own music for, say, cut scenes if it wanted to.

I guess I mean the full on ‘upload your tracks and they’re properly integrated into the game’ rather than ‘you may as well just stick headphones on and play it off your ipod’.

Very few games supported it though, from what I can recall. We were certainly never told we had to.

I remember putting my own music onto the Xbox for burnout 3 takedown.

From what I can remember there was a desire to keep it going with the 360, but for some reason it never happened.

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

I think this one just about squeaks in as a 90s piece. Parasite Eve is probably one of Square’s lesser known games. It hit in the same year as Xenogears, Final Fantasy Tactics and Metal Gear Solid, and kinda went under the radar a bit. I still think it’s one of Yoko Shimomura’s best soundtracks thou...

Re: What's Out This Week?

I already have Warriors Orochi 4 and Soul Calibur 6 ‘pre-loaded’ on my XBO. (I’m a pad player for soul Calibur, for some reason I can’t play it on stick at all. Same with Mortal Kombat, maybe it’s the ‘button to block’ thing)

Crayons Scoot looks like a Splatoon clone, only with no shooting.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Yes. Those games are straight up evil on the harder settings.

I’m not sure which version to get, the Switch one has those Nintendo exclusive tracks, but the PS4 release has a bunch of anime themes that aren’t on the Switch one.

Controversial opinion: the version in Crisis Core is better than the version in ff7 itself.

Really controversial opinion: every ff7 track is better in crisis core. Especially Aerith’s theme.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

The ‘real money” store in Odyssey isn’t really as front and centre as they’ve done it in the past, and the game itself hasn’t directed me to it at all yet. I think if you’re exploring and doing the side quests you’ll never be too low level for the main campaign, but I do get that some people like to...
