Re: Games Completed 2020

13th Jan - The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt 24th Jan - The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone Given at the 25 hour mark I felt done with the game, I find it vaguely odd that 80 hours further on I've gone 100% the other way and am now pumping pure undiluted Witcher vibes into my veins. Level 38, Hearts of Stone DLC ...

Re: Games Completed 2020

13th Jan - The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt My first playthrough of this game, completed on Switch. All in all, I'm a big fan. The music, mood, writing, variety of side quest, locations and Witcher contracts are all brilliant. I clocked 80 hours and ended the game at almost level 34. The opening 15 hours or...

Re: The Cane and Rinse podcast Volume 9 (2020)

Sounds like it's going to be a cracking year. Weirdly I know a lot less of the games being covered this year than usual, despite a lot of them being more recent! Probably because I skipped PS3, Xbox One and PS4. But I'll still be checking them out. Lots of games I'm interested to hear about, even if...

Re: 2020 Hype Thread

I solely own a Switch so my highlights are DOOM Eternal for sure, albeit post the delay delay, and Streets of Rage 4, as I think that looks better with every viewing. Lego Star Wars is another I'm very excited about. Also keen to see what The Outer Wilds and God's and Monsters ports are like. Xenobl...

Re: 2019 in Gaming and your Game of the Year

A great deal of the best games I played this year really are ports of older games, like Dark Souls, Virtua Racing, Hellblade, DOOM, Witcher 3 etc. I also put another 100 hours into BOTW with the kids. And I have Mario Maker 2 and Luigi's Mansion 3 for Christmas, which I suspect will ultimately bette...

Re: 399: Donkey Kong Country Returns

I loved my Wii. Whilst many friends ridiculed me for waggling those Wiimotes around whilst they slaughtered unknown enemies and chatted en masse via headsets, I cared not one jot. "Motion controls are plain unnecessary" they said. "You look stupid" they laughed. I begged to differ. Goldeneye. Red St...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Anyone here picked up Witcher 3 on Switch? I'm definitely looking forward to playing it at some point, but James was disappointingly down on it on this week's TCGS. I've watched a fair amount of footage on YouTube though, and I dont think it looks too bad at all. Just wondered if anyone here had sp...

Re: Games Completed 2019

I guess it fell between two stools for me. I never felt like my actions impacted on the story like they did in Firewatch. And at times I felt it would have made a better short film as when it did ask me to control something (the bath toy, the tentacled beast) it didn't respond well and shattered the...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I just finished chapter 6 of Astral Chain so I think that makes me about halfway through. I was considering talking about this game earlier (apart from the first impressions of course) but I was holding off, because honestly I was pretty disappointed with it. While I had a lot to say, the idea of d...

Re: 392: Batman: Arkham Origins

For the life of me I don't understand why this is the forgotten child of the Arkham series. I presume it's because Rocksteady didn't officially make it, but I far prefer Origins to City. Asylum was a tight, atmospheric game that perfectly captured the tone of the Animated series and comic books. It ...
