Re: Forum Changelog and Forum Suggestions

Genuinely a really exciting time of the year and a Christmas/NY fixture for me now. I do remember last year's vid and I remember the cool moment but it does seem that you need to build things up and drag them out plenty these days to gain much traction or attention. I guess it's the constant avalanc...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

God knows how much Smash I've played since it unlocked midnight on Thursday. I've gone deep and unlocked about fifty characters through Classic Mode now and mixed it up with some online antics. I'm blown away by the skill ceiling and how far I am from getting a win in FFA. I usually finish 3rd with ...

Re: What's Out This Week?

Fucking hell. DayZ finally gets a release! Absolutely no interest in a post-PUBG world but interesting nonetheless.

Re: Our next podcast recording (15.12.18) - 350: Final Fantasy VII

(Excellent post, enjoyed that. I couldn't agree more about the strengths of the game and its wonderful tone. I started replaying it recently for the show and just for the atmosphere and it's a lot darker than I remembered and I absolutely fucking love it. I will get round to a proper post before the...

Re: The "Introduce yourself" thread

I never read that thread (from what I remember) but the clarification is helpful. I don't know whether it was this month's Patreon show or the last but you made a similar statement which now has a bit more context.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Also hammering Smash. Had a superb night with my mate, both of us up and down raging and laughing in Adventure Mode trying to unlock stuff, taking turns. One of the most fun games I've played in a long time.

Re: Geoff Keighley's The Game Awards

Having stayed up for everything E3 and been absolutely shagged for work, I've learned my lesson. Also I don't want to be so exhausted I'm anhedonic because I'm planning a Smash orgy tomorrow night.

Re: What's Out This Week?

I've also never really got into any Smash or particularly enjoyed the limited time I played on Wii and Wii U but I do remember one great half hour against a couple of mates in China. One had played a load of the GC version so he was psyched for the Japanese Wii pirate copy I had. It was chaos but fu...

I think that was last year's thread title which got changed but I definitely had the same confusion. Sorry I didn't make it this weekend, last night was a no go, unfortunately

Same here, can't get my head round it being December already. I didn't even forget, just didn't realise it was last night. Sorry, gents.

Re: Virtual Reality

Tetris Effect is the one for me, the killer app as they used to say. It's pretty amazing on the telly with headphones, like, 'made me well up' amazing, but in VR it is so absorbing and affecting, I defy anyone to be unmoved.

Re: Ghouls 'n Ghosts - Cane and Rinse 345

Not at all. I do really like the house style and think it's been remarkably consistent with a rotating panel over a number of years, but I did particularly enjoy this one partly because it had a slightly different tone, a bit more chatty perhaps, it was zesty! That's the word. It's also one thing I ...

Re: Ghouls 'n Ghosts - Cane and Rinse 345

Might read as sycophantic but I'm not bothered, one of my favourites this year was the FC2 show and I've not even played the game.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

GT Sport is an absolutely fantastic online racing game, so that would be my recommendation. Much better than Forza 7 or any Horizon. I've seldom felt such tension and satisfaction as hanging on over a few laps of the 'Ring. Heart attack inducing shit. Great times. Single player cup content ain't gre...

Re: Videogame Deals

A lot of the BC stuff is also X Enhanced which is pretty bloody impressive on certain games. Mirror's Edge, Oblivion and the original RDR are ace and I've heard amazing things about Ninja Gaiden Black and Panzer Dragoon, going even further back to the OG XB.

Re: Videogame Deals

I would say that every cross-plat game I've played on the X has been comfortably better than on the Pro (because I'm stupid enough to buy stuff twice). I was playing Titanfall 2 last night and it runs like quicksilver. Absolutely glorious orgy of hot metal. Same for AC Odyssey & Origins, RDR2, Tomb ...
