Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm still making my way through Yakuza Kiwami on GamePass. I'm going through it really slowly for some reason, but I do enjoy it when I set aside the time to play it. Not sure why that is. Just recently did the side story involving the "man with a big head", this game is ridiculous and fun...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

On the subject of Fantasy RPGs with slightly different settings than usual, I do quite like the look of that Black Myth: Wukong game we've been seeing trailers of. It isn't wildly different from stuff we've seen a lot before, but it does look very good. Though I think they're only a small team of de...

Re: Games Completed 2021

Feb 13: The Medium [Xbox Series X] I enjoyed this game. The story was good despite relying on some well-worn tropes and I was keen to find out the truth behind all the mysteries. The game drives forward at a good pace, and the story was over quicker than I expected. This is definitely a good thing, ...

Still chipping away at both Immortals Fenyx Rising and the Hitman (2016+) series, enjoying them both very much.

Re: Games Completed 2021

Completed Cyber Shadow this morning. That was amazing fun. This is a retro game that get boss fights right. They are such a challenge but you always manage to master them and find their weakness eventually. Makes beating them so satisfying. Music and visuals are absolutely top notch as well. Gamepla...

Re: Games Completed 2021

Thanks to all you lot mentioning it recently, I downloaded and played through Donut County last night. That was a very pleasant way to spend 2 hours. Charming wee standalone story, with a healthy dose of dark comedy and a very pleasing art style. The gameplay too was interesting enough with regular ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been really enjoying Cyber Shadow . Simple, polished, action platformer with really satisfying weapons and abilities and a brilliant soundtrack. It's such an easy one to pick up and play as well, which is nice because I've been playing a lot of games where I felt like sitting down to play them ...

Yeah I felt exactly the same, went into the options looking for Polish audio with English subtitles, and was baffled that it wasn't there

Re: Are you genuinely excited for Xbox Series X|S & PS5?

Well, my Xbox Series controller has some pretty annoying left thumbstick wobble, and I've had the machine for about 3 months now... quite disappointing but I've sent for a replacement since the controller was still within warranty. We will see how it goes. Basically I noticed it during Hitman. I cou...

The Medium looks very pretty. And sounds amazing too. I've plugged in a pair of headphones and it's very immersive so far.

Re: iOS and Android gaming

Thanks all, will definitely give these a go. I had quick scan on play store and there were dozens to choose from, some of which were of dubious quality. I like the Konami one but I wish there was a one-off "no ads" option like some other games have. I've downloaded Luna Story II and I like...

Has anyone got any reccomendations for good Picross-like games on Android?

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Playing the Paris level last night in that new engine, with those reflections and lighting effects, was such an amazing, immersive experience. I kept pausing just to soak it all in and pan the camera round and look at things. And that's just the first level! I'm so excited to keep playing.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm playing Hitman 1 on the Hitman 3 engine this week, and wow it's pretty. I need to start being a little less completionist though, I feel like I've completed the intro levels about 50 times over by this point, don't want to burn myself out :P

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Great post Feirsteax. Playing through the Halo series from the start is something I plan to do this generation as I have only finished Halo Reach ages ago and it was in co-op so wasn't paying attention to the story much. Thanks! It's a good time to do it between the MCC and the next gen upgrades so...

Re: Community Gamertags and other online ids

Absolutely loving Halo 5's ODST Slayer playlist, give it a go if you're looking for a very tense twist on Halo's slayer. Its like a happy medium between normal Slayer and SWAT. I'm having so much fun with it.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finished off the halo series on heroic finally, after having halo hooked directly into my veins for 2 months straight :D These are my thoughts on the last two I played: Halo Reach actually blew me away. It's funny, because I was ready for it to be a bit disappointing after playing SO much halo alrea...
