Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Started playing F1 2021 last night after recently getting into the motorsport in a major way. It's the first F1 game I have played since whichever edition launched with the PS3. I remember that feeling really inaccessible at the time whereas this is the opposite, it immediately feels a lot more welc...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've also started what I believe roughly translates as Yakuza: Black Panther (?) in English, but it's the Japan only PSP Yakuza game. That's cool Alex, are you playing on Vita? I assume it's not an official patch Yeah playing on Vita, which is 'hacked'. No it's just a fan patch I downloaded online....

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Still plowing through Skyward Sword, I really love it. The dungeons are really wonderful and the bosses I have encountered so far really varied. Sure the control scheme with the sticks in handheld aren't the best but I think they're the best they could do.

Re: Do you binge play video games or take your time?

I wouldn't say I binge through games but I only have two max on the go at any one time and it is normally one with a narrative that requires full attention and one which can be played quite casually whilst doing something else like watching TV, normally this is on a handheld and something like a pla...

Re: Videogame News

Disappointed to see the news about Pro Evo going free to play. I will reserve full judgement till we see how the free to play element is implemented for single player modes, if those modes exist at all. Kind of sucks that there won't be single player at launch though.

Re: Games Completed 2021

#17 - Mafia Definitive Edition. Good story, but more linear than I was expecting. Not as sandboxy as I was expecting and the world felt pretty empty. I appreciated that about the game, you're right it was an empty open world, it felt like a set for the story but I was happy they chose that approach...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

Driver's already on the list. And we did cover Driver: SF which contains a little look back at the series. Not sure how much enthusiasm there will be among the team to revisit/complete the earlier games! Yeah the first two are hard to go back, having recently died. Driv3r was not great at the time....

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Been playing Skyward Sword HD over the weekend and so far I am pretty impressed. Having not played it before and hearing some people say it's the worst Zelda, my expectations were low but so far I am having a whale of a time. The HD upgrade makes it nice and crisp and the gameplay is fun. I love Bre...

Re: Videogame News

I'm not too fearful of it becoming outdated as it sounds more powerful than the Switch by some distance (apparently it's similar to the PS4 in terms of power) and we have seen on Switch how games like Doom Eternal have been scaled down for it. I suspect most people know it's not going to be playing ...

Re: Videogame News

I cannot wait for the Steamdeck! I love handhelds and I haven't been this excited for a new console since the PS Vita. I have a load of indie games in my Steam library which I will now be able to play like I do my Switch and Vita (in front of the TV) and any future indie games I want to get will be ...

Re: The Euro 2020 Thread

Not that I disagree but teams getting better over time will also happen for the other teams with talented young players, but we do have more young players than others. And Alex, the next World Cup in next year, not in 4-5 years :P My player of the tournament would be Bonucci or Chilleni. They were a...

Re: The Euro 2020 Thread

Gutted we couldn't get it over the line last night, but then I remember how far we've come since losing to Iceland and realise what a great job Southgate has done and most of the squad are so young they can only get better. My only criticism was that I don't get why teams (England in this case) make...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I decided to give Hellblade a go last night and gave it just over a couple of hours and came away disappointed. The sound design and atmosphere is superb but everything else I found to be quite dull. The puzzles seemed repetitive and the combat too was quite one not to me, which was surprising given...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

My dream is that Nintendo encourages more games to fully support mice and keyboards. There are some great PC ports on the console that would benefit greatly from optional/additional inputs. Hypnospace and that new game builder Ninty released are the only two off the top of my head that support both...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Ah right, I have the Mario special edition one released last year. I would consider getting a V1 one to do the stuff you have done but I guess it's going to be difficult to find a V1 Switch, even pre owned as a guess most sellers wouldn't know unless it was a launch one.
