Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I’m utterly hooked on Graveyard Keeper, which I picked up for a fiver in the PS4 Christmas sale (with Fire Pro Wrestling which was £13). Knew I would be when it was first announced for PC, then somehow missed it when it launched on consoles earlier this year. If I could get someone to make a game ju...

Re: What's Out This Week?

Arcade Archives Frogger on Thursday!!! Not sure I can face more Shovel Knight after it made me break my Joy-Cons last time around... What did it do to you?! I just went beyond normal angry over what I felt was overly cruel checkpointing about two levels from the end and chucked them at a wall! Once...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finished Arkham City on PS4, mopped up the major side quests and Harley Quinn’s Revenge DLC, which was my first time playing and I liked a lot. Brilliant as ever being Batman, but not as brilliant as in Asylum. Still playing Crash Bandicoot on PS1. Some of the cruel level designs and not great platf...

Re: 2019 in Gaming and your Game of the Year

Baba is You currently tops my list of ten, but having just signed up to Game Pass, I’m going to sink my teeth into at least one of Outer Wilds, Bloodstained or Blair Witch before I finalise the rest... if my son lets me on his Xbox!

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finally finished Mega Man 11, six months after starting it! Looks wonderful, plays fine, just ain’t no Mega Man 2! Also remembered I’d started the Star Wars Battlefront 2 campaign and finished that off. Sometimes great, but too often a buggy, frustrating mess. Been caning Batman Arkham City over the...

Arcade Archives Hyper Sports tomorrow. Obsessed over it on the Spectrum to the point I could 100% the shooting level with my eyes closed, but never played the arcade version so I can’t wait!

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

My son liked the Monster Energy Supercross demo, and I’m unlikely to even spend a fiver on Titanfall 2 but will give it a go if it’s stuck in front of me, so no complaints.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I signed up for a £1 until 20 April Game Pass offer on my son’s Xbox, mainly to play Lonely Mountains Downhill, which is likely to be among my games of the year after a few hours play. Not being an Xboxer, I hadn’t really paid much attention to what value that service is - Outer Worlds, Outer Wilds,...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Sounds like Ring Fit Adventure is doing exactly what it’s meant to do. I’ll stick with my running though. After enjoying its brief appearances in Uncharted 4, I dug out my PS1 copy of Crash Bandicoot and I’m having a great time with it. I’ve just had a hog ride, which is as far as I ever got, and I ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finished Uncharted 4. It dragged a bit about two thirds in but the last few chapters were fantastic. They looked absolutely gorgeous too! Still not keen on some of the last-gen gameplay aspects but overall enjoyed it. Did you like the ending? It got so close to twee and cheesy without crossing the ...

Re: What's Out This Week?

Stadia being delivered on the 22nd instead of the 27th was a nice email to get today. Geographically I'm not far from Mat Murray so maybe I have his. Him cancelling is my gaming disappointment of the year! As hyped as I’ve been for the new (and old) Bubble Bobble, £35 is pushing it a bit. Unless I ...

Re: What's Out This Week?

Star Wars was a day one purchase for me until I started reading the previews. Not sure it’s the Star Wars game I’m looking for anymore, so that will now come down to reviews convincing me otherwise. More than enough to play until it gets cheap though, and not sure I can resist that new Bubble Bobble...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I thought that Uncharted 4 was a real slog. Uncharted 2 was the only other game I'd played in the series and I was quite surprised by how little the basic gameplay had advanced during the interim. Know what you mean. It often feels very awkward, and having just been through the Nathan Drake Collect...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I remembered I owned Garou: Mark of the Wolves on iOS and wondered if it had PS4 controller support now - it has, so played through the story mode and enjoying survival now; not really a fighting fan but thus always resonated! Same story for Metal Slug 3, except I quickly remembered it ever resonate...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finished Uncharted 3, but having to play 80% of it again after my save corrupted just before the end put a real dampener on the experience; apart from that, it’s a fun story, the combat mostly works okay, the puzzles aren’t too taxing, and there are times that it is still stunning. That said, there ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Played a whole bunch of Super Castlevania IV, yesterday. 8-) I am so tempted to start that again on my SNES Classic after watching that. Great video! I was tempted not to start Uncharted 3 again after my 94+% save file got corrupted yesterday and watch the ending on YouTube instead, but I’m stubbor...
