The main beneficiary here is Epic of course with Fortnite.

Re: Games Completed 2021

Jan 17th - Quantum Break (XBO) Sure, let’s start the year off with a really old XBO game... I think this brings me back up to 100% of Remedy’s output. It’s a decent game. The combat is competent, the plot is well put together and interesting. But it’s not spectacular, I’d say it’s a long way behind ...

Re: Tetris Effect and Tetris 99

Check you’ve not accidentally changed something in the controls remapping (on the console as well as in the game itself)

Re: Games Completed 2021

Jan 10 - Streets of Rage 4 (PS4) (Cherry - Normal) For that final boss... Take the guy out first as Ms.Y is less dangerous. Once the mecha battle starts stay in the top left of the arena and concentrate on the leg that’s there, ignore going for the other legs. If you can also deal with Ms.Y before ...

Re: What's Out This Week?

Yeah, the character progression stuff is the Kunio-kun influence. First time I played through it it took me aaaaages to realise those buffs you were buying in the shops were persistent, so you should keep getting them.

Re: What's Out This Week?

Be interesting to see how it compares to River City Girls now, which is a more recent take on the Kunio-kun gameplay style.

Re: Games of 2021: What piques your interest?

Had it on 360, suspect I’d probably enjoy it a lot more now because I know more about the games it’s homaging than I did then.

Banger of a soundtrack too.

Yeah it seems once the early hype and then the backlash died down the overall impression of it seems to be ‘meh’.

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Seeing how your tastes shift over time is pretty interesting. A decade ago my list would’ve had a lot more jrpg’s on it than it does now, because as a genre I’ve gotten pretty tired of its lack of innovation to the extent it’s actually made me dislike games I used to love...

Actually, there’s a decent chance we’ll see Overwatch 2 this year, so that.

Right now... not much actually.

I’ve not been paying much attention to what might be coming out in the next few months.

Honestly, I think to enjoy wicdiv it helps to be British and/or *really* into the fan culture around pop music and those who make it.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Blue team in Halo 5 is one of those things I moaned about when we were talking about novels and comics based on games overstepping the line of ‘what you need to have read to continue to understand the games’ They’re characters you know really really well. If you’ve been reading the novels for years....

All the deus Ex games are good. Even the second one that everyone hated when it’s only crime was being not quite as good as the first.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Steam achievements for story games can be so funny. I finished Chapter 5 of Death Stranding, something less than 30% of players have done? I'm worried what it's going to be at the end of the game! The last game I finished was Snake Pass and very, very few people have done that, according to Steam. ...

Re: Cyberpunk 2077

My gut here is that Sony pulling it is a compromise they reached with CDPR after the latter said people should ask Sony for refunds. Sony’s policy is they don’t do refunds for janky games, only ones that break the console. So this is the only way in which what CDPR told people to do can actually wor...

Re: The Last of Us Part II

The Game Awards are a public facing set of awards that really only consider the final output.

I can’t see it doing *quite* so well in the next AIAS awards or the GDC ones that are voted for entirely by other devs.
