Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been periodically popping back in to Kingdoms of Amalur , .. Hah, another post that got way longer than I was expecting it to. I really enjoyed Kingdoms of Amalur, from what I played of it... which was about 30 hours into the single player campaign. at that point it really started to hit home ...

Re: Anthem

Good article. I always thought the game looked a bit sparse and so have never played it, it looks like a game that might be fun for 5 minutes until the fun of flying wears off. really interesting to see that in a 7 year dev cycle they didn't even know what the game was, or invoved, 18 months before ...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

And I'll drop one more as I'm here... Lotus Esprit Turbo Challenge III.... I'd listened to a lot of the music on youtube trying to find one that took me back, all types of Atari ST tracks but none of them sounded right. Turns out I must have had that game on my PC, not the ST, because this.... THIS ...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

Just listened to the latest SOP and Leon shouted out for more 80s or 90s tracks... Heres another memorable one from the Atari ST. I had a demo on this from a cover of ST Format (or maybe ST Action, I forget) and although I wasn't much a fan of the game, this music is memorable to this day. Published...

Re: 350: Final Fantasy VII

well this is it, Final Fantasy 7. I never played any of the previous FFs and the first I heard about this game was in an episode of OPSM which i bought religiously every month from the mid 90s to around 2006. I remember reading that you could do things in this game that you couldn't do in any other ...

Re: E3 2018 - Conference times and general chat

So just to copy paste my comment on facebook, regarding the Cyberpunk revelation that it's a 1st person game, if not an "FPS".... Not gonna lie, I'm pretty upset with this news. I know there's a lot of kneejerk reaction to this and I hope I'm not part of the triggered outraged masses that get angry ...

Re: South Coast Meet Up

Hi Folks,

I had the idea of a meetup after seeing some posts on twitter/instagram today, and found this post on the forum from a few years back.

Was anything ever arranged?

Feels like an annual "Cane&Rinse-con" could have legs :)

Nick.

The Making of Mad Max

Hi all, I've been recently playing the Mad Max game a lot, as it's really hooked me now and I want to see it out to completion. Whilst doing some reading, I came across this video. Thought some of you might find it interesting if you've played the game or have any interest in the Mad Max series of f...

Re: 312: Rampage

Originally played this game in the arcades, my earliest memory was at some kind of Fun-House type situation... no idea where it was though. I think possibly in a bigger city like Manchester or Liverpool, it was definitely not anywhere in my home areas of rural Shropshire back then. I distinctly reme...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I picked up Monster Hunter World today. I'd put about 15 hours into 4 Ultimate over the past two weeks. What IS monster hunter? I'm totally out of the loop on this one. What kind of game is it? I've not looked into it much but it seems like a Final Fantasy style game where you catch monsters then b...

Playing a lot of Assassins Creed Black Flag currently after getting it for free a few months back on Uplay on the PC. Played an earlier AC game and didn't get really get into it so didn't expect much from this, but after a friend recommended I give it a shot, I've been hooked for the past couple of ...

Re: Gaming Backlogs

I've decided on the way I'm going to try to deal with my gaming backlog - I currently have around 350 games on steam, and surely around 250 of them I've never played, plus just signed up for Origin Access, so another 75 games there... plus I have various games on GOG and Uplay... So for the gaming c...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Currently playing FTL (Faster Than Light) on the PC. Heard good things about this for a long time but never really understood the appeal from the screenshots.

Suffice to say, I'm pretty hooked and now totally get it!

Anyone else played it?

I got Pillars of Eternity for Christmas, and it's glorious. Haven't played a game like this for year. I also got Torment - Tides of Numenera and I had a hard time choosing between them, but I went for old school fantasy. Oh man, I got Pillars of Eternity on a Humble Bundle a few months back, finall...

Re: The ongoing loot box and microtransaction discussion...

Basically this cartoon sums up the whole situation quite nicely... We need more consumers to take a stand otherwise we will keep getting fleeced, unfortunately. Hopefully the Battlefront 2 situation has helped change things, but I doubt it will last. http://www.dorkly.com/post/65536/how-every-awful-...
