Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Taking a break from my normal grind/loot and put on recent games with gold title Death Squared The feel is Aperture Science by way of the IT Crowd, at least that's what it's going for. The concept is fine - control two AI cubes as they manoeuvre through a series of block puzzles to reach their targe...

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

I was able to attend Ubisoft UK's launch party for this last night, held at a new videogame/esports bar in Shoreditch (Platform, www.platformexperience.com ) What we saw looks very interesting. It's a continuation of the story from Wildlands, though it's a new adventure for returning player characte...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Just interjecting to say that whilst Overcooked is playable with one person (you get cooks you can swop between), it really needs to be played with other people to be properly enjoyed - a wonderful return to couch co-op Thanks for that. Unfortunately I think one player is as far as I'll get with a ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Glad to have seen what all the fuss was about though, and another PS+ gem because I’d have never played it otherwise. Looking forward to trying Overcooked now!

Re: Speculating on the Future's Perception of Gaming in the 2010s

Crunch isn't specific to videogames, not by any means at all. So very true! My day job is within the creative industry and this mentality seems built in But to see the conversation start to spread and to see companies now looking to instigate working practices to remove the need for this to be a st...

Re: Speculating on the Future's Perception of Gaming in the 2010s

Re: Warframe

Nice to see some people trying it out =) Just a quick tip for you, don't spend money on weapons or warframes. They can all be optained through gameplay. And also, a lot of new players miss how the movement works. They don't teach you the more advance movement in the turorial. Check the codex on the...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Played the first couple of stages of Lego Marvel Superheroes with Ellis, who's almost four, this morning. Its brilliant! I've not played a Lego game since Batman 2, but they've come on a long way! Looks gorgeous, interesting gameplay and genuinely amusing. And it was under a tenner and will last us...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finally started on Resident Evil 2 - purchased as a birthday present for my darling wife. The original has a special place in our hearts - it's the game that convinced me to buy an original Playstation and got me back into gaming after a few years haitus distracted by alcohol and women; and the game...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I bit the bullet and purchased The Division 2 at launch - I'm not normally one for day one releases but the beta made a good showing and I've sunk more than 200 hours into the first one ... I'm deliberately trying to take it a little slower (as my regular fireteam is more split between Destiny 2 and...

- God of War (PS2) That's an interesting mixture :) DKC 2 was great back in the day. I've never played a God of War game but thinking about giving the 3rd game (on PS3) a chance sometime. Have to say that I found the 3rd game to be quite disappointing - the first game dealt with the concept well an...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Over the weekend, myself and the clan dropped back into Destiny 2 I'd burnt out on the game late November and hadn't touched it, over than a couple of hours mid-February for a guaranteed loot drop. However, we had a full fire team so ran the Leviathan raid early evening and even if we made mistakes,...

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

I first came across Pit People when I had an invite to the private beta and it clicked. It's possibly most saccharine crap-sack world I've come across and the sound track really helps to enforce this with a mix of tunes with influences from trap to flamenco and all with an inferred retro game sound ...
