Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Resident Evil 4 on Switch. This is probably my third full playthrough, the first 2 being on Wii probably over 10 years ago, and all I can say is this game still really does deserve its masterpiece status. Honestly, the only thing dated about it are the QTEs. It's like the gaming equivalent of that c...

Makes me think though, is there a thread on here for the best looking consoles?

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

I have to say I started off quite liking it, but every time I see it now I'm really going off it already. Stood up or laid down - it's just not a nice-looking thing to me either way. It's just a bit self-conscious and vulgar, and the fact it is literally one of, if not the largest, consoles ever ma...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I loved Huntdown but bailed once I got to the final boss. The last few bosses are tough, but the final final boss was just too frustrating for me. I started another playthrough, this time on easy mode (I loved the game that much I was more than happy to play it through a second time) but I couldn't ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Days Gone is one of those games I spend all day looking forward to being able to play later. I'm really loving it so far. The sense of being a drifter, riding from place to place carrying out bounties or exploring NERO sites is brilliant, and I'm starting to feel almost as attached to my bike as I ...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Does anyone find it odd that Nintendo revealed Paper Mario not via a Nintendo Direct? It seems odd to me when they have done Directs for a lot less. My suspicion is that Nintendo has put the kibosh on all Directs for 2020 due to Covid. Partly because it's no doubt thrown a lot of their plans into d...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Huntdown on Switch. If you asked a 12 year old me to describe my dream videogame, this would pretty much be it. For those not familiar, it’s a 2d sidescrolling platform shoot ‘em up that is kind of similar in feel to those old licensed Acclaim action games of the 16 bit era - specifically Alien 3, S...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Lonely Mountains: Downhill on Switch. Despite loving the aesthetic, I was a bit worried I wouldn’t get into this initially as the game feels a little hostile and prickly to begin with. This is because riding off-road and exploring to find faster routes (which is essential in order to beat the time ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Might have to do the unthinkable and switch over to Easy mode... The inability to avoid attacks is grating more and more the further I get. In particular the jump-kicking short haired female assailants and the black-suited cops who seem to be able to grab me from the other side of the screen are dri...

Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake

If they made a HD remaster of the original with a completely overhauled translation and skippable summon sequences I'd be more than happy. Keep the LEGO men, they're great. The recent rerelease versions of FF7-10 allow you to fast forward by up to 3x at any time by clicking the left stick, which is...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

It's possibly because I literally just got done playing Super Crush KO, which does have a dodge/slide ability. Fantastic little game btw if anyone here hasn't played it. Very slight, but very addictive. I'm hesitant to say, for a modern scrolling beat em up, that the core gameplay is more fun that t...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Yeah, that's just it. It's like my brain has time to perceive the incoming attack, so I instinctively try to reach for a 'dodge' or 'block' button that isn't there... :lol: Makes for a slightly aggravating gameplay loop at times.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Cheers. Pretty sure I tried that but must have timed it wrong. As I say, maybe its down to the genre, but there's something that gets under my skin a bit about repeatedly seeing an attack coming, then having half a second to wait for it to land with no way of avoiding it no matter what I do. Feels a...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm enjoying Streets of Rage 4 as well, but is anyone else finding the character movement a little... sluggish? Perhaps that's faithful to the genre, but I'm finding myself a little frustrated by the apparent lack of a 'dash' or a 'block/parry' button. I often find that by the time I see an attack c...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I'm not usually one to moan about game prices - I don't even mind paying $60 for Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze for example. But yeah, $50 for Burnout Paradise is bananas.

Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake

I really don't know why anyone would be bothered about what they do with the remake when the original still exists. Erm, because the original (nice as it is to have) dramatically suffers from, among other things, being locked into some butt-ugly standard definition prerendered backgrounds and a rea...

Re: Our Patreon

Hey guys, I've been a bit out of the loop and just noticed that I am no longer receiving new episodes via the Patreon RSS link. The last episode available is from Dec 19... I've tried unsubbing/resubbing using the link on the Patreon page but still nothing... Am I doing something wrong?

Re: 414: Axiom Verge

I’ve tried to get into Axiom Verge about three times. On my most recent attempt I made it about 4 or 5 hours in before setting it aside again. As a massive fan of Metroidvanias I had assumed I just wasn’t in the right kind of mood when I had played it previously, but this last go around made me come...
