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...

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

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: 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...

Re: Sound of Play: 22

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)

Thanks to anyone who can help me. Cheers.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Bodycount (2nd time) - Quite a fun shooter actually. Worth checking out. 6/10 Terminator Salvation (2nd time) - Terribly glitchy. Easy mode could be fun, Hard mode is frustrating. 5/10 Bioshock Infinite (2nd time) - Don't like Bioshock or Infinite but loved Bioshock 2 multiplayer! Shame it was remov...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

Yeah due to the older ones being quite hard and obtuse from what I hear I think starting with the 2015 one would be best, since it's easily the most accessible and could still talk about the history of series. To be honest Im not really surprised that the team isnt very interested in playing it it ...

Re: HD remakes / remasters

Would love to see Burnout 3 & Revenge remastered. Timesplitters HD collection would be awesome too.

Can't see either of them ever being released now though.
