Re: Videogame News

This is very clever...

Seems Days Gone is a distant Syphon Filter sequel?!

Re: Videogame News

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.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I bought Xenoblade Chronicles X for Wii U for not a lot of money and decided to throw it in for a quick impression... And now I can't stop playing it! Not even sure why. Maybe it's the Breath of the Wild DNA in reverse? Interesting you say that, because in retrospect, I disliked both games -- for v...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

More Sega Ages love here with Virtua Racing on the Switch (via Japanese eShop, hopefully will trickle everywhere else). On one hand, yeah, it would have been great to include all the Megadrive/32x versions as extra content, but considering the difficulty of simply getting original source code , wha...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Injured my hand so playing lots of games that don't require using my left thumb much. Picross is as lovely as ever. It's a great go to relaxing title. Ding dong XL is perfect as it only uses one button, costs 89p and is very addictive. You just send a ball back and forth avoiding the shapes that try...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I suspect this is real. Most of these other rumours have turned out to be right or close to the truth. I can also see, as a parent whose kids repeatedly drop the Switch and want it on 24/7, why a cheaper version to play Mario, Zelda, Minecraft etc on makes sense (and where the parental lock usage wo...

Re: 371: Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge

Without a doubt a huge amount of this games appeal lies in its visuals. The world of Monkey Island 2 is gob-smackingly beautiful and showcases an incredible use of design, animation, colour and perspective to create rich and memorable environments and characters. Even at the time I remember marveli...

Re: 371: Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge

When I start student talks to designers about how I fell into our industry, I often start with a picture of this game. Until I played Monkey Island 2, all the games I'd played were about high scores or scoring goals. But this game altered all of that. I couldn't die. It made me laugh. The soundtrack...

Re: 374: Furi

I'm trying to beat this in time for the podcast but am struggling to. Playing on Furi mode. At the Old Man fight and can consistently get to phase 3 or 4 but then I can't figure out the pattern. Maybe it's because I've played Dead cells, Dark Souls and Breath of the Wild in the past 6 months but aft...

Re: 370: Ape Escape

I remember being insanely excited for the launch of Ape Escape. Partly because all of the PlayStation magazines were saying it was a Mario beater, partly because I'd bought the original Dual Analog controller to play G-Police and hadn't had an excuse to use it since. I had only ever owned bargain ba...

Re: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Loved the discussion about differing ways to tackle puzzles in this game. The anecdote Michiel told around his friend trying to cross the river on the Great Plateau was exactly what I did on my second playthrough. But on my first, I read a book in the Old Man's hut, earned a Warm Doublet, cut down a...

Re: 367: DOOM (2016)

Doubt this is worth including in the show, but for anyone who bought it on Switch and hasn't played it since day one, well WELL worth another go.

It looks so much better since the most recent update, especially in handheld mode, and the motion aiming is great if, like me, you adore it in Splatoon 2.
