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: Games Completed 2019

Jan - Lego Marvel Avengers Jan - Titanfall 2 Feb - Oxenfree March 27th - Gorogoa (Android) Picked this up after some recommendations for using up some Google Play credit. The game is gorgeous and very cleverly designed, centred around a simple idea of a young boy filling a dish though a lot more tr...

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...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

- 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 ...

Re: Apex Legends

One thing I've noticed from this is that Titanfall 2 has a much more active player base since Apex dropped ... I've tried this a few times, always playing with randoms and whilst I wouldn't necessarily agree with the hype, it plays pretty well and the ping is pretty versatile - I'dd missed double ta...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Last couple of days I've been putting some hours into the private beta of The Division 2 Right off the bat it makes for an interesting contrast to the private 'demo' of Anthem not that long ago. Div 2 beta had two story missions plus an end game remix of one of those with access to end game characte...

Re: Board/Card Games - The obligatory "analogue" gaming thread

Board games is something I'd like to get into more - both in terms of table top gaming and also TTRPG (blame Critical Role for this ...) Of course real life gets in the way (too much working in the evening, long commute, two young daughters) and the last particularly means many of the games I'd like...

Jan - Lego Marvel's Avengers Jan 30th Titanfall 2 Since I first played the multiplayer tech test in late 2015, I've been interested in getting this though it's been hovering around as 'that game I should pick up' until I saw it for just a few pounds in the Christmas XBox sale and finally picked it ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I put a few hours into the Anthem VIP demo this weekend (not entirely certain how I got access as I haven't pre-ordered but maybe something from being part of the alpha?) Anyhoo, the game itself plays well. Being able to jetpack into the sky whenever you want is a great feeling. Graphics are lovely ...

Re: The Humble Isopod's Guide To Reducing A Backlog

Nice post, thanks for this. Just adding a few things to this: Decide if your completion is just to the narrative end, to 100% of the game, or to a given number of hours/matches/level. TrueAchievements and TrueTrophies are another good source of game info (for Xbox and Playstation systems). they do i...

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

not certain if this is the correct thread for this but I'm wondering if anyone has any idea where to get the music from the recent special operations from Ghost Recon Wildlands? I'm particularly interested in getting the music that played in the background during the helicopter escape section in Spe...

Re: 376: Dino Crisis

I can imagine the scene in a Capcom meeting room: "This Biohazard game series is doing well and we've green lit the third one. With Konami bringing in Silent Hill, what can we do to capitalise on this?" "well, that Jurassic Park thing is doing okay ..." Whatever the origins, the story of how dinosau...

Re: 392: Batman: Arkham Origins

Arkhams Origins is a game that I won't ever forgot - but this is largely as this is the game that killed my original piano black PS3 (and removed all my PS1/PS2 save data in the process). :| The game itself was a reasonable fit into the Arkhamverse for the most part but does raise some questions reg...

I've been going down the grindy RPG rabbit hole recently: Assassin's Creed Odyssey : I'm around 5 hours in and have just left the first island.
