In case it’s not already on the list, I’m going to throw in Minit. Based on my experience with it, I’m reckoning on it being viewed as a cult classic by the time you’d get to it!
Exactly the kind of game I'd get around to playing if I knew it was coming up on a podcast. Good shout!

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I haven't played Galaxy, though I'm sure I would enjoy it. My views above are certainly flexible to an extent. But presumably the core intent of Galaxy is for me to have fun, not marvel at the formula - unique as it may be. I guess that's what it comes down to. I'm not highly conscious of the formul...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I have to say, I play more games more thoroughly now with their so-called "busy work", their open worlds and familiar but well crafted activities, than I did when chasing after the auteur experience in my twenties - and I only did that because so many outlets and peers seemed to think everything I l...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Quite chuffed to say that I've been playing Shadow of the Tomb Raider at a preview event! I think it looks pretty awesome. The stealth combat is vastly improved and Lara is a much more complex character this time around, helped in part by having some more companions to bounce off of during gameplay ...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

I gave myself an initial spending limit of £30 to get me through the rest of the year with my new handheld. I don't think that should be a problem, as I now have: - Persona 4 Golden - Tearaway - Odin Sphere Leifthrasir - Papers, Please - Broken Age - Severed ...to play through, plus several PS4 game...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

Absolutely. I have a hell of a lot of digital Vita games - P4G itself has been £3.99 in sales (I have that physically though it’s too precious)! I just picked up Gravity Rush for £3.99 in the latest sale, and just two posts ago I highlighted Resogun is a disgusting £2.50 - there is a lot bargain wi...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

OK, so an observation that I haven't seen mentioned often among the various bits of praise that people give the Vita: Games are so cheap digitally! I can't believe the disparity between physical and digital here. I've gotten used to prices being either about the same (Nintendo) or drastically more e...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I have been trying to play through several Zeldas, but it's just not happening for me. Scratched off on my list of attempts now are: Link's Awakening A Link to the Past Breath of the Wild Link's Crossbow Training (my favourite so far! Thanks Darren!) There's nothing more stressful to me than failing...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I think the Luigi abuse is really going too far. Someone at Nintendo hates him with a distressing fervour that has only grown over the decades.

Re: Merchandise poll

I'm in the opposite situation to Ksubzero1000, and have ticked almost all of them!

I'm actually between re-useable coffee cups so that'd be my top pick.

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

Excellent, thanks everyone. And yes, quite aware that a lot of people adore it; half the reason I'm getting one is because I'm jealous of being left out of the conversation :lol: The other half is the rather poor showing we have on TrueTrophies for Vita guides and walkthroughs, hoping to correct tha...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

Ok folks, question for you. Thinking of getting a second hand Vita. Now I've heard that the first generation is somehow preferable to the second, though I've yet to find a layman's explanation as to why. I also don't really know how to identify one from the other; CeX for example only differentiates...

Re: Books completed (2018)

I know it's already been mentioned but I have absolutely stormed through The Expanse novels, which I only gave a chance to because I didn't enjoy the series pilot and wanted to see what the fuss was about in literary form. I must have started Leviathan Wakes no more than two months ago, and now I'm ...

Re: Other podcast recommendations

Now that I work from home I have been smashing through quite a lot of podcasts. WTF with Marc Maron, which I'm sure has probably been mentioned before. Really insightful and human conversation with actors, comedians and writers. I finally got around to it when I realised he was the same guy from GLO...

I just got around to finish listening to this. Great show! Very nice track selection and contribution from kintaris. Looking forward to potential future Pokémon episodes, then! :)
Thanks! And yes, me too - a good excuse to fill up my Pokédex properly, should those episodes come to pass!

Re: How much have you spent on Steam?

$1300 over a decade. 233 games.

Fun fact: I've only had a remotely functional PC for maybe a year or two of that decade. I've only played 50 of those games for more than an hour, and only played 70 overall.

Pretty sure all of that will utterly pale in comparison to my Xbox spending.

Fun, fun facts.

I don't have a channel as yet but I am constantly on the verge of starting out. If I do it'll probably be PlayStation 4 stuff.

Re: All things God of War

To your earlier point Alex - AC Origins did the same with their credits.

As someone who tends to push through until 3am to finish something I'm enjoying, I appreciate not having my eyeballs implode waiting for them to finish scrolling in case of post-credits shenanigans (see: every MGS game) :lol:

I enjoyed Nintendo's Direct but I fully appreciate that if you're not interested in Smash, it was probably pretty bad for you...
