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 ...

Re: Our next-but-one podcast recording (13.7.19) - 378: INSIDE

Don't think I can come up with anything unique or personal to add to this one, but what a game and atmosphere! It's insanely hard to draw you into a world in the way this game did. The Switch screen seemed far larger when playing that game.

Some good stuff in the Nintendo eshop sale. All the Steamworld Games are pretty cheap.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Glad you liked it! I know exactly what you mean about BOTW in so many respects but equally loved the sheer isolation and freedom it gave. The wind, the passing clouds, the situations where an elemental occurrence changes your situation, finding a stranger stranded somewhere remote... I adored it. Bu...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Loads of great games mentioned here but if you missed it on Xbox, then Inside is terrific and I think Steamworld Dig 2 and Yoku's island express are two of the best platforming metroidvania games I've ever played.
