Re: Mental Health

Vent away! Being able to voice a concern somewhere that you consider safe I think is very helpful I am going to point you towards mentalhealthgaming.com and most particularly their discord which has a dedicated channel purely to post a rant into! And I'm with you on the expectations of people expect...

Re: Games Completed 2022

13th March - Far: Changing Tides - Xbox One (63% achievements) This one popped up on Game Pass at the start of March. It's a platform puzzler set in the same world as the studio's Far: Lone Tides and the same core mechanic of operating a giant vehicle across a changing landscape - though this time i...

Re: Sea of Thieves - Come sail away with me!

Has anyone played the Shrouded Islands adventure? I noticed it's only available till Thursday this week and wondered if it was worth bothering with. The fact it's time limited and supposedly the beginning chapter of a big, game spanning adventure, I thought I probably ought to do it! (Or if it's no...

Re: Bringing back your favourites... Which is it?

UT with Instagib was all sorts of batcrap fun on a Saturday night with mates and a few beers. Still think the Overlord lmapon UT is still the best ever first time playing a map in Multiplayer history for me. "Fook me it's a beach landing!" :P I know what you mean, really loved the Assault...

Re: Your soothing gaming fix

I find there are two parts to this: there are the games that by design are soothing. And then the games that by familiarity are soothing. For the former Townscaper is a recent addition to this; Unpacking would be another. Journey or Flower also manage this and I can really relax to that method of gl...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

This last week I've gone back to Assassins Creed: Origins Set myself the challenge of going through each area and clearing it as best I can so this tends to be something I do in bursts - I reckon I'm about 2/3 of the way through the game with over 50 hours of playtime over the last few years. The co...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Just started on Crown Trick - a roguelike dungeon crawler. It seems fairly simple at the moment with it's elemental power base on it's skills but as someone who isn't great at rogue games, this suits me fine and there is plenty of early progress (though I can see that spectre of grinding lurking in ...

Re: Back 4 Blood Buddies

I'd be up for a game or two on this.

Managed to get on a couple of time but only with one other friend - the bots are okay but not great so haven't yet even completed the first act.

Time is limited to late evenings GMT time really (or the very occasional morning) but would be interested

Re: Forza Horizon 5

It's the sheer number of things to do. I was in the bit where you are setting up an outpost in the volcano and have to remain in a limited area, and one of the NPC's piped up to say there had been a barn find and to look in the area. I carefully searched all around that area with no success - it was...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

A recent injury to my back has meant that video game playing had been taking a back seat for a few weeks and I'm only just in the last few days starting to get back into things. I'm finding that a lot of the time I'm more inclined to just be watching Youtube/Disney+/Amazon Prime but there have been ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Last couple of weeks have been fairly busy work wise but managed to get a few sessions in here and there: Last Words - a delightful platformer where the gimmick is that you are playing as a character in a hand written story in a journal. So there are these twin stories of the girls real life and her...

Re: Ten years of Cane and Rinse!

A big thank you to the entire C&R team - I came along here via the Sound of Play podcast 4.5 years ago. Have to admit that I don't listen as often as I used to, to any of the podcasts going but I appreciate having a corner of the internet that is unlikely to descend into flame wars and where one...

Re: Books completed (and general book talk)

Stormed my way through Retribution Falls by Chris Wooding Somewhat akin to Firefly , though with a little more steampunk flavour than science western, it makes for an easy read. Very obviously setting up a series and it edges towards the 'with one bound they were free' school of resolving issues but...

MGS2 is old enough that meme's were not really a thing at that time - the likes of 'I can has cheeseburger' were only just beginning to get a following ... Memes were around at the time though.
