Re: Comic Book Chatter

If you think the Dark Knight stuff is the worst you’ve ever read, you’ve clearly never read 300. Or Holy Terror.

Re: Videogame News

One of the reasons Telltale suddenly ran out of money was Netflix cancelling the contract they had.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Front Mission 3 is indeed a fantastic game, and one you can play through more than once. Very early on you make a seemingly innocuous choice that sends the game down one of two completely different plots. There are also some other branching moments later, but it’s really a two scenario game (think r...

Re: What's Out This Week?

I suspect the game we’re playing has only been in dev for the normal 2 years. What’s likely happened is previous attempts will have been cancelled and restarted, several times.

It’s on Unreal 4 anyway, and that’s not 9 years old so...

Re: What's Out This Week?

Crackdown 3, at least the campaign mode, feels pretty much identical to the first game to me, just prettier. Even has that weird subtargetting thing where you lock onto an enemy by holding LT then move the right stick to select which limb to shoot at. It’s... ok I guess? If it wasn’t on game pass I ...

Re: Apex Legends

I’ve found when playing BR games that have solo modes that those are no fun at all, because you lose all of the revive and respawn elements, makes it into just a glorified death match.

Well from what I’ve seen so far, Jade looks to be the character I’ll probably try first.

Re: Apex Legends

On the consoles, dpad up to quick use a healing item, hold up for the healing item wheel. Grenades work the same way, only it’s right on the dpad to equip the quick slot one, hold to bring up the selection wheel. (Oh, and there’s also a selection wheel for a bunch of more complex squad pings, if the...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Fire emblem looked kinda meh... character designs seemed quite plain, and I’m not a massive fan of the ‘high school’ setting (Valkyria Chronicles 2 almost made it work... almost...)

Going to try the Daemon x Machina demo before I go to bed, and the Zelda thingy at the end mad me happy.

The ‘redux’ versions of the first two metro games are on game pass, I really should get around to those.

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

It says on the tweet to expect details on the new Fire Emblem.

So if past directs are any indication, it’ll be 25 minutes on that.

Re: Your dream licensed videogame?

I’d love to see some modern Obsidian style takes on a few novel series I like. ‘The Vagrant’ books have a really interesting post apocalypse fantasy setting going on (imagine Warhammer fantasy after chaos won and everyone just kind of... carries on with those guys in charge now), and I think you cou...

Re: What's Out This Week?

The multiplayer in it seems to have its own separate achievement list, which suggests two different developers entirely. We shall see.

There’s a few there I thought were a *lot* further out.

I wonder if crackdown will be damaged by Apex? Or vice versa?

Re: Apex Legends

The level four scopes highlight enemies in red, and can see them through smoke, but you’re not going to have one of those that often. Bloodhound seems extremely good as well, as long as you keep remember to use his ping radar thing, the little marks it leaves on the environment telling you how long ...

Re: Apex Legends

Wraith’s portal feels a little odd to me, it’s the inverse of how Symmetra’s works in Overwatch now and I can’t see much tactical use for it. Yet. I’m sure as meta evolves someone is going to figure out how it completely breaks things. (Wraith drops a portal entrance at her position, then has to run...

Re: Apex Legends

It’s a game design that is always going to be at its strongest when played with friends, but they’ve done a very good job of making it work with randoms. The context sensitive pinging of things (single tap for ‘this is a thing to do’ double tap for ‘something bad is here’) works really well. Ping an...
