Re: Videogame News

Is it just me that thinks the FFVII remake looks absolutely ghastly? I mean, if their goal was to surgically remove every single ounce of charm that the original had, then they have completely succeeded. Simply put, characters that are that outlandish and stylised (sporting crazy spiked hair and wi...

Re: Our next-but-one podcast recording: Mass Effect 3

I loved the first game, and Mass Effect 2 is probably my favourite of the last generation, so I could not wait to get my hands on Mass Effect 3. It somehow felt like both everything I wanted, and kind of a disappointment. In many ways the game was exactly the big, emotional end to the series I wante...

Re: SoP submissions *please read first post*

Stoic's The Banner Saga is one of the most visually beautiful and memorable games I have ever played, so it's no mean feat that Austin Wintory's soundtrack leaves just as big an impression as the graphics. It perfectly captures the feel of a frozen and unforgiving landscape, and the desperate strugg...

Re: Your Thoughts on Pixel Art

Well done pixel art (whether in games or just for its own sake) is a beautiful thing, and in general I tend to prefer more stylised art which restricts itself to some degree. I'd like to see a more varied range of 2D graphics in games though - something like Darkest Dungeon is a great example of non...

Re: Star Wars: Battlefront

I've been playing this for the last couple of hours on PC. I've got mixed feelings. As someone who still regularly plays Battlefield 4, the whole thing just feels a bit, well... casual , for want of a better word. The primary weapons available don't seem especially different from each other (though ...

Re: Everybody's Gone To The Rapture (and Dear Esther)

Having really enjoyed Dear Esther, I've been looking forward to this ever since I heard about it. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it's out... but unpleasantly surprised to see that there is no PC version: I must've missed that detail. :(

Re: Our next Halo podcast recording - Halo 3: ODST

Despite playing all of the main games in the Halo series in one form or another, ODST was the only one I loved rather than merely liked. Playing through the atmospheric, rain-soaked stealth sections, while trying to rendezvous with your squadmates, was a nice change of pace to the more traditional H...

Re: How do you play games? (One at a time or multiple titles at once)

I usually play about 4 at once - aside from the fact that I've had a multiplayer FPS on the go pretty much since COD4, I think I'd get burned out on something like Dark Souls if I wasn't also dipping into something vastly different for a change of pace. I tend to try to avoid more than one game of t...

Re: The "Introduce yourself" thread

Hallo folks. I've been listening to Cane and Rinse for at least a couple of years now (and Sound of Play more recently of course) and, after signing up quite some time ago, finally decided to drop by and say hello. I figured now was as good a time as any with E3 just around the corner. Games-wise, I...
