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.

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...
