Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Ah, so we’re talking about auteur theory here then? My experience working in the industry has taught me that it’s rarely the case that one man’s single vision drives every decision made on a game (at least of the scale of these) but I’ve not worked with any Japanese studios first hand. And I’m alway...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I don’t get where this idea that games like Assassins Creed Origins somehow aren’t ‘authored’ comes from? All the puzzles, quests and locations in that game felt very obviously hand made to me...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Not sure how familiar you are with the series, but Toriyama has been doing the art (well, at least the character designs) for the Dragon Quest games since the very first one way back in the 80s. It was a major coup at the time.

Re: What's Out This Week?

Yes, that is a megadrive release in amongst that lot :)

I might get Penguin Wars, very fond memories of the GB version of that back in the day.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I’m playing a lot of Dead Cells at the moment, and it might just be my favourite game of the year so far. Really nice blend of Spelunky style level generation and Permadeath with the progression mechanics of a Metroid game. (Essentially you keep the things you’ve unlocked during a run for all subseq...

Re: The Street Fighter thread

Didn’t feel like staying up to watch EVO this time, but when I woke up this morning it was still going. So I got to watch the grand final of SFV live.

That was fine, mighty fine.

Got two new characters to have a play around with this evening as well.

Re: Videogame News

Lot of things being announced at EVO today. There’s a Nintendo direct for Smash on Wednesday, some more Soul Calibur 6 characters have been revealed (Mina! Yay!), and there’ll be more for sure. We know we’ll see some stuff for the SFV character ‘G’ as he’s next in the list of season 3 dlc. Will we s...

Re: The Street Fighter thread

We just had one of the all time greatest train wreck moments. Two guys come up to play, straight away they pick Kanzuki Beach as the stage (it’s a banned stage in tournament play cause the water can hide certain moves). Then they play and... they’re about as good at the game as I am. After the first...

Re: The World Cup 2018

Other US friends of mine have found that a good way to get into the English premier league is to pick a team that isn’t one of the big well known ones and follow their ups and downs.

A good bet for entertainment that will be quite the rollercoaster would be to follow Fulham this year I think.

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

I’d say the opening few hours of Mafia 3, and the main missions you get at the end of each region (as you take down its crime boss) are right up there with the best open world games. The rest is, as you say, a bit too much repetitive filler. I actually don’t mind that, I quite enjoying the relaxatio...

I liked mafia 3 a lot, but it’s not one I’d play through again on PS4 after beating it on XBO.

I really enjoyed it, but I do still think Tales from the Borderlands just edges it for best Telltale. It’s more my sense of humour I think.

I downloaded it, as with Rhythm Megamix.
I prefer to have them installed anyway tbh.
Sadly my 3ds is full of Phoenix Wright that I’ll ‘get to eventually’.
