Re: E3 2019 - Conference times and general chat

I think the switch over to the more 'realistic' graphical style with FFX is when I lost interest in the series as a whole. The outlandish costume design and hairstyles make sense visually when the characters themselves are very stylised, but they look ludicrous on relatively real looking human figu...

Considering how big gaming reveals get leaked so often these days, that is truly impressive. Must have very tight security in Nintendo HQ!

Yeah, never played any of the Panzer Dragoon games so I cannot wait to pick it up later this year! Glad Sega is going back to some of their Saturn stuff, it was always a neglected machine when compared to their other consoles.

Re: E3 2019 - Conference times and general chat

Anyone else think that the FF7 character designs lose every single ounce of charm and instead actually look really silly when they’re rendered in the quasi realistic style of the remake? Yep, 100% agreed. I played and finished FF7 for the first time last year and I thought its chunky visual style g...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I have lost interest in E3 over the years, of course there is always stuff announced that I am excited for but it has been a really long time since an announcement made me go "HOLY SHIT!". Banjo in Smash made me say just that. This has been on so many Smash fan's wish lists that when I seen the thum...

Re: Our Patreon

That "SJW" reviewer is ridiculous, the podcast only gets political when the games themselves cover political topics and if you are going to do a proper analysis of what makes a game work or not, it would be glaringly incomplete without mentioning the political subject. Imagine the Bioshock Infinite ...

Re: What classic games or series are still to be looked at by C&R that you hope get covered in the future?

With Panzer Dragoon being rereleased later this year on digital platforms, it might be more likely that the team covers it than would have been the case prior. I never played the originals so I am really hyped for it myself personally. Donkey Kong was one I had always wanted to hear getting covered ...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

I so wanted to like Night in the Woods - the music, art and writing are all incredible. I just wish it had more in the way of actual, you know, gameplay. Some platforming, some point and click styles puzzles... anything to get my teeth into. I know there are those that disagree, but I'm firmly of t...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

One I just thought of that would make a really fascinating episode is Night in the Woods. I absolutely loved this when i played it last year and thought its characters were ironically the most human that I have ever encountered in a videogame. Not to mention, the political themes it deals with are s...

Man, they were everywhere, weren't they? I remember one year GameCritics.com gave their game of the year to Dead Island. :lol: Those guys over there really love their zombies. In fairness, it probably was the best of the zombie games*, and reasonably good fun with a good, if buggy, co-op element. E...

I personally find this current generation far better than the last gen for the most part and I am not talking about the obvious graphical improvements (though I agree with others that 4K is not particularly interesting, far better things for developers to put resources into and my standard HD telly ...

Re: If you could only pick one console...

Oh boy, this is a tough decision to make. I suppose it would be a Playstation console of some sort just because of the sheer variety of games on offer. The PS4 has been one of the best consoles I have ever owned, the amount of stone cold classics that machine has offered me has been truly extraordin...

Re: Games Completed 2019

It seemed to be that each game in the order I played them (Dk64-Kazooie-Tooie) was (at least to me) easier. DK64 was hard because it controls poorly compared to the 360 enhanced Banjo games I played and some of the mini games were stupidly difficult. I also made it hard for myself using a cheap cla...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Just started Gravity Rush 2. Seems like more of the same but combat at the moment seems to be a bit improved? Still too early to tell but is starting out pretty good so far. Still looks and sounds lovely though.

Yeah, it just gives you good vibes all around. Music seems to be of real consistent quality with this series, loved the Katamari special Sound of Play did a while back. Introduced me to a lot of top notch music.

My exposure to the Katamari series has been limited but what little I have experienced I have absolutely adored.
