Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Below is definitely an interesting game, but I’m not really sure it’s a good one.

I’ll keep going with it for a while yet, but it’s not really opening up after the first few hours.

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

I’ll admit I tend to prefer running original games rather than downloading stuff, so I do have some bias (and I’m reminded that I really do need to preorder the Analogue Mega-SG)

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

While it can be modded, the emulation is apparently still pretty awful. And given that a real PS1 still looks reasonably decent on a modern tv (and better still if you play your ps1 games via the ps3) it still seems like a hard sell.

Carmen San Diego has definitely lowered her sights since the megadrive days. Stealing a drum kit? When she once stole the Eiffel Tower?

Re: Geoff Keighley's The Game Awards

MORTAL KOMBAT! I mean, everyone kinda already knew that existed, but still nice to have a date for it, I also like the way they’re handling it, rather than a slow drip feed of reveal info they’ve gone ‘here’s a bit of cg to show it exists, we’ll do a live stream to show the whole thing off for the f...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Started ‘battle princess madelyn’ yesterday and I’m not impressed. It’s all too imprecise and directionless, doesn’t get what makes ghost and goblins the game it is at all. Shame.

Re: Geoff Keighley's The Game Awards

I do wish they’d do this one on a weekend so Europe can stay up and watch it. As it is, I’ll watch the trailers in the morning and probably not be too fussed about who won what. (Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice to win these things, I’ve got two BAFTAs you know, but this particular show seems to treat ...

Putting the PAL version of Tekken on there instead of the NTSC one is a crime.

I thought that the alt colours for Bowser Jr in Smash were each of the Koopa kids?

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

While Jesper Kyd’s music from the earliest Assassin’s Creed game is rightfully lauded, I think it’s easy to skip over the fact that the series has continued to be musically very strong. This is ‘Legend of the Eagle Bearer’, the main theme of this year’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Credited to ‘The Fli...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I think I ended up doing everything in Mad Max, but I was out of work at the time and that kind of ‘mop up the sandbox’ is pretty good gaming when you’re depressed.

Re: Books completed (2018)

The Witcher books do eventually turn into ‘the adventures of Ciri, also with Geralt’, but that doesn’t make them any less good :) Currently reading Garry Kasparov’s book about his matches with Deep Blue and his take on A.I. research. It’s pretty good, if you happen to share his (and my) view that a ...
