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

Here's a great track from one of my favourite games, 'Hot Shelter 1' from Sonic Adventure.

There are many great tracks to be heard in the original Sonic Adventure (or Sonic Adventure DX), this is just one of them.

Hopefully it hasn't been requested already. Cheers.

Re: Remasters — the good, the bad, and the fugly

I really like remasters and with current gen (PS4/XB1) releases being as dull and uninteresting cash grabs as they are, remasters of very good, classic games is what I care about most. I recently spent 90+ hours with one of my favourite racing games of all time Burnout Paradise Remastered. Absolutel...

Re: Our next Resident Evil podcast recording (13.10.18) - 341: Resident Evil 5 (Biohazard 5)

I went into Resi 5 expecting not to like it but it grew on me very quickly. Some sections were terrible (the zombies on motorbikes for example and that big ogre boss thing) but the majority of the game was quite good. The first time I did the game solo and had fun with it. The second time around I d...

Re: 346: Resident Evil 6 (Biohazard 6)

Dreadful game and still the only main Resi I have never finished. I have bought it on PS4 to get it done once and for all. I just finished it (1000G) about a week ago. It's an odd game Resi 6. It's really just a big extension of 5 but not very enjoyable. Playing with a magnum or crossbow with infin...

Re: All things Achievements, Trophies, Meta

I would like to see Platinum trophies more easily attainable, although I guess that would devalue them in the eyes of trophy hunters, but I don't mean easy to get as such, but I wish so many games didn't rely on stuff like max out every weapon upgrade, or collect all 500 feathers or whatever. Stuff...

Re: All things Achievements, Trophies, Meta

I've been a completionist since Donkey Kong Country on the SNES. When the achievement system first appeared with the 360 it was a really interesting idea which in some ways worked but in others was very flawed. It's all about how achievements are used. There are 'good achievement lists' and 'bad ach...

Re: Mortal Kombat - Cane and Rinse 286

Great podcast. Thanks guys. Maybe the lack of interest in MK3 was due to the success of 3D fighters that emerged after MK2 (Virtua Fighter and Tekken for example) more than MK3 being a disappointing game. The addition of run and combos really improved MK and made the 3rd game fantastic in my opinion...

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

I would like to recommend this beautiful theme from my personal favourite game of the current generation and the 7th highest user rated PS4 game of all time on Metacritic.com.

Phillip Sheppard's 'Kara's Main Theme' from the amazing Detroit: Become Human.

Enjoy!

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince (Xbox 360) - I played this game on the PS3 around 5 years ago and quite enjoyed it. Decided to go back to it this time on the 360, and really, this game is excellent. I have no interest in Harry Potter really (only saw the first movie and didn't like it) but th...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Try Dirt Rally for a current gen rally game, it's brilliant. Hard as nails, you really have to learn the car and tracks. You can't rely on powersliding your way to victory in that one! Yeah I enjoyed the first Dirt though, too. It was probably the last in the long running Colin McRae* series that I...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Gave me a good 20 hours of rally driving fun anyway. :) Certainly better than Forza Horizon 3 with it's stupid annoying cinematics, non-mutable dance music, game crashes, rip-off DLC packs etc. etc. In fact DiRT was better th...

Re: Special No.2: PlayStation

Although the PS1 had a huge library of classics nothing stood out for me throughout the consoles life quite like Ridge Racer. 1995-2000 the original game was rarely out of my console. As a young boy in the months before the PS1's release I could not stay awa...

Re: Detroit: Become Human

You make some interesting points SubZero. Though it's hard to compare low-budget indie games with Quantic Dreams games because of the difference in scale. Heavy Rain and Detroit are hugely ambitious games with multiple playable characters, complex story branching and last the average player between ...

Re: Detroit: Become Human

As much as I am enjoying Detroit, its still incredibly... quantic dream esque. That is to say, incredibly clumsy and heavy handed. But at least its not quite as awful as Heavy Rain. Can anyone actually think of a game since Heavy Rain that has done what it did and improved on it? I can't. The only ...

Re: Detroit: Become Human

So far I think it’s superior to beyond and heavy rain. The interface is better and I genuinely found the opening exhilarating. I rarely buy games on release anymore but I’m so glad that I bought this. It does feel very much like heavy rain in its design. I don’t mind the writing. The characters are...
