Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Playing both Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 and the Link's Awakening remake, and I pre-ordered Super Mario 3D All-Stars . It's a big month for games that came out 20 years ago. I remembered I was about one zone short of finishing Donkey Kong Country, so got that done over what turned into a very infuria...

Re: Let's have a thread about the virus, then. We might as well.

Yeah, the almost far too predictable flare ups have been a little concerning. My sister is getting married (again...) next Friday, but it's been on and off more times than a thing that's been on and off several times already. We're still not 100% sure if it's allowed to go ahead or not now! I've mi...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

No, but I've started watching the Micheal Jordon/Bulls doc, The Last Dance, on Netflix, because apparently I'm only interested in basketball at the moment :lol: I just finished this last night. I'm surprised how much I liked it, considering I'm not really a basketball fan. I mean I like it fine, I ...

Re: Games Completed 2020

Finally saw the credits roll on Days Gone. I really enjoyed it a lot, which I still find surprising considering how bad I have zombie and post-apocalyptic fatigue. The biggest surprise is how much I liked the story. I had only heard rumblings about how long the game was when I was already 10-15 hour...

I usually don't get swept up too much in nostalgia, but it's hitting me hard when I watch videos for this game and I can't help getting excited.
Good reviews so far, too.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Jumped into the RDO update, and so far the new role seems kind of fun, if a little grindy and not too dissimilar to hunting. They seemed to have fixed a lot of the bugs people were having issues with, and there's some nice menu and quality of life improvements. But it's more RDO at the end of the da...

Re: Games Completed 2020

Finally finished Octopath Traveler. My feelings on Octopath weren't too different, maybe a bit more positive. Although it has one of my favourite soundtracks in JRPGs. Did you just finish the 8 stories or actually take on the final boss? It loosely ties some threads from the 8 stories together, tho...

JUL - Watch Dogs 2 (PS4) This has always been on my list, but never close enough to the top where I chose it over something else. But I like how you made it sound, may hit the spot for me too, so next time it's super cheap (which is often) I may pick it up. Do you have a PS4? It's currently on PS N...

Re: Games Completed 2020

Finally finished Octopath Traveler. While I enjoyed the combat and REALLY enjoyed the art style, I think that the game really dragged by the end. I finished at just under 70 hours and would have enjoyed it way more if they had chopped at least 20-25 hours off. That's mostly to do with the story (sto...

Re: Games you have spent the most time on 2020

Red Dead Online , easy. I love the world and I got hooked hard into the daily challenge streaks, and played it almost every day, if only for a few minutes (but often for more than an hour or two). I only recently broke the streak, and I think it's a little strange but I don't miss it. Until they up...

Re: Books completed

Just finished I'm Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid based on a random post on Reddit that said it was scary, and the fact that Charlie Kaufman liked it enough to make it into a movie for Netflix (coming soon). Super weird, unnerving and creepy, a short read (just over 200 pages) so it flies by....

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I also tried out Titanfall 2 as I've heard so much praise about the campaign mode of this game. I don't want to say too much on it yet because I'm actually close to finishing it, since it's pretty short. But right now I'm not exactly blown away by it. I suppose I can see some positive qualities to ...

Not sure about outside of the US, but for any American forum members both Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night and Rondo of Blood and Contra Anniversary Collection are $5 a pop on the PS4 store right now.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Picked up Days Gone on sale, despite being wary of its grim tone and pretty much being over zombies. The podcast episode tipped me over the edge and at $14 I figured why not. So far I'm finding that it bounces between cool and frustrating (not sure I'd use the word "fun" yet). Survival and stealthin...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

Really liked the vibes Little Devil Inside was throwing out, Ratchet and Clank looks slick as hell, and obviously I want to play Horizon. Glad to see a Housemarque game, too.

How did Doom Eternal compare to Doom 2016 for you SludgeWizard.

DOOM 2016 is my favorite shooter by anybody for any system, so I had unrealistic expectations fo...

Re: Videogame News

An achievement list has popped up for a remake of Kingdoms of Amalur. Good game that was, once you get past the slightly overlong first act. It’s not far off where I wanted us to take the Fable combat system but we never did. I was very excited when I saw this. I don't remember many specifics of th...
