Re: Leon's shameless self-promotion corner

Link doesn't work for me and I can't track down any games section on BT. It's not region-restricted, is it?

Re: Dark Souls I & II

There's no need to play Demon's first, so don't worry about that. To me, it sounded like the PC issues were overstated by people who resented the port; I know some PC enthusiasts who had no issues with it. The first two links on this page should sort you out though: http://darksouls.nexusmods.com/mo...

Too late! I downloaded it the other night and made my way through 1-1 last night. Seeing the blank set of trophies is quite delicious :D

Uncharted 3, XCOM and LBP Carting have replaced Infamous, LBP and Motorstorm as the 'permanent' freebies.

Re: PlayStation Plus (and the PS Store in general)

Nice, I completed Ico but bounced really hard off SotC last year; maybe I'll try it again.

I have a serious problem, though. I'm actually thinking of buying Demon's Souls from the US store so that I can do the Platinum again on that version. I have to resist this urge...

Re: Pre E3 next gen consoles - which one do you want?

I'm fully convinced that Sony are going to turn around and screw everyone on DRM and used games, but at the moment I'm going PS4. I started this gen with a 360, then moved across to pS3 when the howling jet engine became too much. I like what Sony did with the PS+, and as a player of sports games, t...

Re: Tale of Tales - Cane & Rinse 81

Great job guys, I really enjoyed the discussion. It's a tough call when none of these games sound appealing to play; and I think a lot of gamers' problems with them is that they don't make many concessions to ease of play. Hearing about the control scheme for Salome, for example, makes me not want t...

Re: Using Games as a documentary medium

Check out Unmanned, by molleindustria. It's not documentary as such but provides a great take on the drone eats in Afghanistan. There's a rich vein of stuff there if you wanted to explore it - the Internet is full of stuff about video gamers being ideal for flying these drones. Admittedly I haven't ...

Re: This Week's Show: Tale of Tales

The notion of The Path as antithetical to Journey intrigues me greatly - in what ways would you say that was the case? Journey's is a journey towards transcendence. The girls in The Path are going on a journey too, ostensibly to Grandma's house, metaphorically to adulthood. However, instead of tran...

Re: This Week's Show: Tale of Tales

Ach, I'm kinda sorry I brought up the whole game/notagame thing. It might only really be relevant to those who debate games on that deconstructionist/semantic level. It suffices that The Path is delivered in videogame form and it should be debated as a game, I think. With that in mind, I guess it in...

Re: This Week's Show: Tale of Tales

This is an interesting one. I picked up The Path a few years ago on a whim; didn't know anything about Tale of Tales or any debate around The Path. I was just intrigued by the screenshots. I loved it, despite the gameplay, for three or four of the girls. I found it both spooky and horrifying, and wa...

Re: Dark Souls I & II

Yeah, imperative to take Gargoyle #1 out as soon as - #2 appears when you get him down to half health so as soon as that happens, finish him quick! If you're doing it unassisted there is a sweet spot at 4 and 8 o clock on the gargoyle's body - just tuck in there under his wing and hammer away and he...

Nice! There's quite a lot in it that only becomes apparent once you start playing, so it'll be interesting to see what you guys make of it.

Nice job, iwatttfodiwwfa! Sounds like the same sequence in which I did the ending - I was very nervous trying to get Priscilla's tail at the end in case I killed her and had to go through NG++++

Re: Game Suggestions for the Podcast

Deadly Premonition might be a good one, given its re-release yesterday.
