Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

Had a listen to the Blast Corps podcast while at the airport today. Very good and quite funny too :)

A few game suggestions:

The Getaway (PS2)
Shadow of Memories (PS2)

Re: Mirror's Edge – Cane & Rinse 51

Excellent job on the Mirror's Edge podcast. Great to hear how much the C&R team enjoyed it and their views on with game. Personally I liked everything about Mirror's Edge (except the horrible vocal track "Still Alive", other than that the games instrumental soundtrack is amazing, "Kate - puzzle" bei...

Re: Videogame Criticism

Max Payne 3 is one of my favorite games. Probably my most played third-person shooter outside of Uncharted. I get more into it on the podcast, but, I loved how dirty that game is. Wish they'd spice up a remaster for current gen as it looks incredible on PC, but, I'm aware it didn't perform enough t...

Re: Videogame Deals

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Xbox One - £4.99 on eBay from Argos (probably stores too),

Never played a Deus Ex game before but they do look good.

Re: Videogame Criticism

I enjoyed the quite downbeat tone of Max's story. You don't see "middle aged" protagonists that often - maybe it was inspiration for GTAV? It's interesting how Max Payne 3 seems to be a 'loved it or hated it' kind of game. Thanks for your opinions anyway. I will have a listen to the podcast episode...

Re: Videogame Criticism

I enjoyed it a lot at the time, but I suspect it doesn’t hold up to replay much. Better games have appeared since, for sure. I liked the kinetic typography stuff in it, and the music was pretty good. I hated that flashy word flash thing that came up during the awful unskippable cutscenes. It was ju...

Re: Videogame Criticism

Anyone got an opinion on Max Payne 3? Finished the story last night and did not enjoy the game one bit. Terribly boring storytelling, unskippable cinematic overkill, awful controls, predictible gameplay, annoying music, constant unnecessary use of the F-word etc. etc. Max Payne 1 was and still is on...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Started a second play through on Dead Space (new game+) and it was like a completely different game. So much easier with a fully upgraded suit, different weapons and knowing exactly what to do etc. I also learned in the tutorials the second time that X (or square) gives an instant heal - meaning usi...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

What did you think of the UI elements? What do you mean by UI elements exactly? If you mean the 3D hologram like screens, yes, those were amazing to look at but the inventory menu was totally stupid in that when you need to bring it up to use it you get attacked while doing so and move so slow you ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Just finished Dead Space and did not enjoy it at all.

The visuals and the atmosphere were quite impressive (had me thinking about Metroid Prime the whole time), everything else in the game was terrible. 4/10

Re: Prince of Persia (2008) - Cane & Rinse 29

Thanks Rob - the game was a mere four years old when we recorded that show! I think I first played it around that time. Shame I wasn't aware of the great C&R back then. Had a look for Dead Rising 1 but sadly you haven't done it yet. Any plans to cover Dead Rising? A show dedicated to the first game...

Listened to this today. Excellent podcast, really good.

It was nice to hear what you guys had to say about another one of my favourite games of all time. Thank you to everyone involved. Cheers.

Re: Spare download codes (Steam/Origin/GOG/XBLA/PSN/whatevs)

If anyone still has Gears 3 or Judgment I would be very grateful of them.

I was going to get Gears 2 GOTYE used on eBay but it seems the DLC map packs were codes and are not on disc.

Re: Spare download codes (Steam/Origin/GOG/XBLA/PSN/whatevs)

Still got codes for Gears 1, 2, 3 and Judgement if anyone wants one? Me too! I'm not sure there's anyone left who hasn't got them. :D Would appreciate Gears 3 or Judgment if you still have them. Sorry just seen this, still have them if you'd like them? Also got a code for Alan Wake now on Xbox if a...

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

There are two amazing tracks that stand out for me in Resident Evil 5, 'Rust in Summer' ('Slayers Theme') and 'Sad But True'.

'Sad But True' plays during the epic and best part of the game when Chris fights Jill.

Re: Sound of Play: 22

Thanks Flabyo. I've been a big fan of Rare games and their music for many years. JFG is one of the few Rare games I've never played. When I eventually get an Xbox One and Rare Replay, JFG is a game I will have to play.

Re: Games completed 2017

Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day (PS3) This game is short, very short, but great fun while it lasts. It's not an easy game to describe but I will try. I guess it's a kind of high speed, super flashy 2D side scrolling platformer (think Sonic The Hedgehog but with a Japanese assassin girl in a wedding dr...

That Jetforce Gemini track is amazing!

Listening to it before knowing what is was from I was thinking one of two games... Killzone or Killer Instinct.

Thanks for another great podcast.

Hi guys, I'm new here. Could anyone tell me when the Perfect Dark podcast will be available on iTunes?

Also, how and where can I submit my word review? (Best Game Ever)
