Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Ghost Recon Breakpoint I'm a big fan of Wildlands so trying out this beta was a no-brainer. It's actually the third time I've played the opening of this game so the opening mission is getting a little stale but the game plays well and is a good successor. There are things I'm not happy with - the s...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I picked up Elite for less than £12 back in a January sale ... it's been sitting on the hard drive staring at me as I scroll past I've only tried Everspace once or twice so far - there is a roguelite element to it and I think the handling is a little off (more akin to how you'd expect a plane in atm...

Re: iOS and Android gaming

in fact, put my money where my mouth is and created Cane and Rinse clan on Gears Pop.

It's currently open to all with no minimum cog requirement but happy to alter those settings if preferred

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Elite has always had that, right from the very first wireframe version way (way) back when - which is a large part of why I haven't tried it out - my gaming time is already limited and there are more than one grind games on my (supposedly) active playlist. I'm reasonably certain there would be a poi...

Re: iOS and Android gaming

It’s.. ok so far I think. It’s quite shameless in borrowing most of clash royale’s game mechanics for its main versus mode. It does have some co-op modes, which is what you need the ‘crew’ thing for, so that could be interesting. For me, it riffs of Minion Masters so I'm enjoying it so far. I'd be ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

There was an article I caught this morning (on Polygon? Kotaku?) which was talking about the 16 ship capacity fleet carriers. It mentioned towards the end that there was September patch update which will include a fully fleshed out tutorial. That may be enough for me to finally try this one out - mo...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I only really post in this thread when I’m doing something new. Most of the past month I’ve just been slowly working my way through a bunch of gamepass games, the story modes in Soul Calibur 6, and playing a bunch of Elite Dangerous and Overwatch. I have gone back to playing Neverwinter this week, ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

So this is what it has come down to already. I don't know what you mean here Michiel, but I would say that Reprobate Gamer is not being negative about those games but just expressing a bit of uncertainty about his place on the forum. It can be a bit dispiriting on a discussion forum when no one els...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I always feel a little out of place as I read about all the obscure shmups and retro games everyone here seems to play and there's me stolidly plugging away on my Xbox One ... Anyways, I've gone back recently to Batman: Arkham Knight . Got this second hand Spring 2016, played through about the first...

Re: iOS and Android gaming

Konami quietly released a Picross game called Pixel Puzzle Collection on iOS, spanning their 50 years of gaming. Several of the team, including myself, have been playing Pixel Puzzle Collection. I've been putting quite a bit of time into it over the past month or two; you're right about the value -...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

The girls have been getting a little more interested on what's on the Xbox beyond their Minecraft addiction so I've been on recently: Hydro Thunder Hurricane : A decent boat racer where the tracks go from credible to utterly fantasical (racing frost giants or skirting giant sea monsters) and the boa...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Gears 5 Tech Test First off it looks incredible on a 4k TV on a One X. Gameplay is still the same as ever with a heavy reliance of the fabled (read annoying) Shotgun roll in close quarters. I played capture the flag only and after the initial rust wore off I really got back into it, I would have li...

Re: Shameless Self Promotion

Honestly, I'd start from the beginning of campaign one - at least part of the appeal of CR is the interaction in - and out - of character by the cast and how that develops. You can skip most the end of the early episodes when they move over to opening gifts/letters from fans or that ended as dance p...

Re: Shameless Self Promotion

I've already posted above about my short stories on Archive Of Our Own - for those who aren't Critical Role fans (which make up the bulk of my works there), I've just uploaded something that is much more on the spy drama genre and with no direct links to any existing works (except for one esoteric s...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been spending a bit of time back on the Division 2 in an attempt to at least reach the end game. It may be the patches are making those QoL changes but it feels more fluid now and less in your face. There's still too many call-outs to open world events happening nearby (including being told tha...
