Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

... I also played a bit of Spacelords today. Pretty awful and depressing experience honestly. This is not my kind of thing at all, being a F2P third-person shooter, but I've given this game three chances now, and it has left me thoroughly unimpressed each time. The reason I even bothered to give th...

Re: Sony PlayStation 2

For me and my then partner (now wife) - the decision to buy a PS2 was easy. We kept access to our PS1 collection ( Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid, Crash Team Racing, Parasite Eve 2, Dino Crisis, Tekken 3 ), we gained access to new games ( Code Veronica ) and we gained a DVD player (Stargate was the...

Re: Overwatch

A lot of the VAs in Overwatch are the right nationality, especially the Egyptians. And for how bad Tracer’s cockney accent is... her VA is actually British. Likely was told to over emphasise it, the performances are not subtle for any of the cast. The VA performance that’s bothering me most at the ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Played Among Us for the first time this week. It was an impromptu session that we set up ad-hoc - with a couple of us not even owing the game and others who had been playing for a while. We went straight into a game with very little issues, and the cross play between the various Android and Steam ve...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I tried out Felix The Reaper last night. I want to like this game - you play an slightly overweight always dancing reaper from the ministry of death who is smitten with his opposite from the ministry of life. The visuals are somewhat surrealist and and kooky enough to be appealing, the soundtrack is...

Re: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

I played All-stars for about an hour a few years ago as part of a longer gaming session - I actually liked it (playing as Raiden). Even for someone just jumping in, I was able to start chaining combos and the different visuals and levels made for an interesting experience. My children passed through...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

More titles leaving game pass and more titles to try out ... First was Bad North: Jotunn Edition . This is a procedurally generated strategy game as you defend a succession of islands from Viking invaders. And I do quite like it. The graphics are a pastel hued and dreamy and are a stark contrast to ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

As it'll be leaving Game Pass in a couple of weeks, I installed Gonner to give it a whirl. A roguelike platformer - this is a game that appears to be largely about the visuals. It's aiming to look as if it's being sketched in as you play, with short levels that disappear from view as you move along,...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I spent a little bit of time working my way through Creature In The Well before it left Game Pass. It started very strongly and I was blitzing my way through - then a week away for a family holiday meant that when I returned, my progress slowed right down. My game file was to the boss encounters on ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I had planned over the weekend to spend a reasonable amount of time on the open beta for Avengers - I managed to get to what I presume was the boss for the tutorial level (at least I reached the character you fight whilst controlling Black Widow) when the game locked. It played fine - there was noth...

Re: Favourites that have waned

Crash Team Racing (the original) For a couple of years, this was a staple with friends (even one or two who are not gamers). Then several years of moving house and dealing with children (and the lost of the original PS3) Picked up the digital copy cheaply to serve as a replacement and was sorely di...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I was notified earlier this week that Creature in the Well was leaving Game Pass - having lost a few games by not paying attention over the last few months, this one intrigued me enough to download It really is a mix of RPG-lite with pinball, a dungeon crawler where the aim is to hit all the bumpers...

Re: What do you think about the Resident Evil timeline?

The B-movie schlock is definitely what makes these games so appealing. If you have played Resident Evil 7, would you say that game is more akin to a slasher movie? The speedruns of this game are really interesting to watch. I really want to play Resi 7, I just need to hunt down a copy. I've played ...

Re: What do you think about the Resident Evil timeline?

I'm always a sucker for these kind of projects and it's clear that a lot of time and effort has gone into this - I have a feeling I caught this some time ago whilst it was worked upon so had already seen part of it - that or someone else has already something similar Resident Evil as well remains on...

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

If I've missed this earlier, my apologises but the last couple of days I've been enjoying rehearing the Timesplitters 2 soundtrack. One of my favourite series, this was a lighthearted FPS that firmly remains on my 'where's the next one?' list. A remaster would be acceptable as well. The plot was pat...

Just to let you know, we're putting out Overcooked All You Can Eat later this year which will have added accessibility options which should help with some of the difficulty curve. Glad you've enjoyed Moving Out :)
That's just made my wife's day!
