Re: Games Completed 2021

January 15th - Spiderman (PS4) January 17th - Labo VR goggles and camera (Switch) Had a ton of fun with this. The VR effect is blurry as hell due to the relatively low res Switch screen and long periods of play would make you feel sick, but I'm guessing that's precisely why the games that come with ...

Re: Games Completed 2021

January 11th - Spiderman (PS4) Fell just short of platinuming it, but very much enjoyed this on the whole. The story was really good, the intro training chapter was one of the best implemented I’ve seen and it looks incredible. Animation, city, combat, lighting… All phenomenal. Suffered from a LOT o...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

After finishing off Master Quest I'm carrying on with the Zelda replays with Skyward Sword . I've always liked this one, despite it being lower down my list of favourites. But playing it again, a lot of the issues don't feel as grating. Even though it is extremely linear, the stuff you actually do ...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

My daughter and I are having a great time blasting through the co-op indie adventure 'Knights and bikes'. It feels like a wonderfully stylish kids book brought to life with deft humour and original energy. I'm only 5 chapters in but also sense it'll have that miraculous Pixar-trait of working on a d...

Re: Games Completed 2020

I don't have an Xbox alas and I can't see myself playing any of the Star Wars games tons online really, partly as I don't play online much and largely because when I do, its always Titanfall 2 / Splatoon 2 if solo, GTAV / RLeague with friends. So I'd only be after any of the 3 PS4 games mentioned in...

Re: Demon's Souls

The visuals play their part but given I’d seen a lot of footage I knew what to expect. It’s the combination of controller feedback and 3D audio which makes it incredible. You feel it when your sword bounces off a shield or when you do the perfect parry. The 3D audio made it seem like things were In...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

I don't think Titanfall 2 has been covered yet from a scan of the previous shows, rather just the original.

If it's not on the list, would love an episode considering that, especially the multiplayer.

Thanks!

Re: Demon's Souls

Wow, big praise.

I'm now very jealous and feeling foolish for buying a PS4 only 3 months ago!

What is it that feels so next gen? Purely the visuals and frame rate?

Re: Games Completed 2020

I really want to play Hades given everything I've heard about it, but the only thing preventing me is that I'm yet to play a roguelike I have enjoyed. So I'm hoping it'll come to Xbox and Game Pass next year, but if not I will pick it up on Switch when it's on sale. I'm no fan of roguelikes either,...

Re: Games Completed 2020

I mostly agree with what you said on the game, I must say though that I thought the very final scene was one of my favorites in gaming. I definitely think I've laid into the stuff I didn't like about it more than celebrated the things I did love. Didn't want to call them out here as they would be s...

Re: Games Completed 2020

Totally agree it's a huge leap in terms of storytelling, characterisation, score, cut scenes, facial expressions, emotion connection etc. No question. More that in the moment to moment gameplay, I personally didn't get the stress of inventory management Vs all out gunplay joy of RE4 (maybe because I...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I wish they'd put that Zombi game on Switch actually, I'd forgotten about that. Played some on PS4 and enjoyed it. The second screen made it well worth playing on that particular machine. Added a new dynamic to it. I think similarly Deux Ex, the Arkham ports and Rayman Legends also had facets to th...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I purchased a brand new and unopened Wii U earlier today for 70 quid in a random toy store that the wet weather had forced me into. There was a beautiful moment of mutual self interest between the store owner and I. He could barely contain his self-satisfied grin at finally offloading his final, il...

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

I'm really not excited for either. As someone who skipped Xbox and PlayStation this gen, I was willing a launch game to be the reason I dropped £600 on one. But I simply couldn't justify it. So I bought my mates PS4 for £140 and decided to spend the next two years hoovering up what I've missed out o...
