Re: The Guardian's Top 50 games of the century

Astonished that you’d never heard of Singstar. I get not being into it (I’ve never owned one), but it was all over the place from 2004-2011 or so, and is still going today. It was even autoinstalled on PS3 for a while. Upwards of 16 million sales, dozens of versions, it was hard to avoid for a whil...

Re: The Shenmue trilogy

Absolutely. The games are full of design choices and gameplay mechanics that in this day and age just don't hold up, and I can completely see why someone coming to the games now would have a tough time accepting them. But of almost any game I've ever played, Shenmue has the ability to cast a weird ...

Re: Our next podcast recording (5.10.19) - 390: Final Fantasy XIII

I went into Final Fantasy XIII not expecting it to be all that great having picked it up fairly cheap on eBay not long after launch and hearing a lot of negative things about the game. Not long into the adventure I decided to skip all the cut scenes and just go with the gameplay. I've fully complete...

Re: The Guardian's Top 50 games of the century

Played only 16/50.

5 were almost perfect games for me. Dead Space, Forza Horizon, Burnout 3, Call of Duty 4 and Res 4.

Halo, Gears 2, Assassin's Creed II, Battlefield 1942 and Fortnite wouldn't be in my top 1000 but that's me.

Re: Resident Evil 4 (Biohazard 4) - Cane and Rinse 336

Thank you, stranger! I will have a listen to that first Res 4 show tomorrow.

I've never seen the show list in full from the beginning. The earliest ones I've listened to then are Prince of Persia (2008) and Metal Gear Solid 2.

Cheers.

Re: Resident Evil 4 (Biohazard 4) - Cane and Rinse 336

Great show on Res 4 guys. Really good. I never played the game back in the day, as like many others my opinion was that it changed things up too much and just wasn't Resident Evil anymore. After finally playing it recently on Xbox One I realised how stupid I was not to experience the game sooner. I ...

Abzu (PS4/XB1/PC/Steam)

Quite a short, casual and enjoyable experience this one (on consoles anyway, Win 10 version has a lot of bugs and crashing issues).

Revisiting LittleBigPlanet 2 on PS3 for a few hours yesterday I was reminded of it's excellent soundtrack.

This is Disco Divertimento by the Daniel Pemberton Orchestra.

So discless One S has leaked! Not sure it’s for me but still, pretty cool.
It shows how technology has advanced.

Sadly though it's Microsoft trying to kill the used game market and push people into Game Pass and to buy games from the overpriced digital store.

Dangerous Driving (Platinum Trophy) This is a decent game that didn't fulfill its potential as much as I would have wanted it to.... This was an interesting read. I like the Burnout games very much but knew nothing about this game until it was released a week or two ago. Gameplay looked very Burnou...

A few recent completions on PS3: Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (+DLCs) - By far my least favourite NFS game of the 10 or so I've played through the years. Cop Hot Pursuits are a lot of fun but everything else is just annoying and broken. From the cheating A.I and pinball-like wall collisions to the mo...

Re: Games Completed 2019

Well, average recorded completion time for 5 is 12 hours, and for 6 it’s 22 hours. This would certainly tally up with those of us who played through the games for the podcast last year. So it’s getting on for pretty much twice as long (and about a quarter as fun in my opinion)! The first time I did...

Re: Games Completed 2019

Just finished Resident Evil 6 a 2nd time (PS3 version). Res 6 really isn't that bad a game when you know it well. Playing through it another couple of times (amateur and professional) I realised although there are more characters, it's actually not much different to Res 5 in regards to length, gamep...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

I’ve not had PS+ for over a year now. Not once have I thought I’ve needed it. When PS+ first started I thought it was great but soon began to hate it. I went from all my gaming years playing what I wanted, to playing whatever rubbish was on PS+. After too many broken and terrible excuses for games ...

Re: Videogame News

I think any 'exclusive' claim on a game has to be taken with a pinch of salt these days. Publishers would be really shooting themselves in the foot signing life time exclusivity deals nowadays I think. Yeah, I don't think it's really had any weight since the N64/Playstation days. It almost feels li...

Re: Videogame News

I don't think the issue for discussion should be how good or bad you felt Cage's games were but what Sony has done. Advertising and selling games as 'Only on PlayStation' then seeing them on PC means Sony's marketing can no longer be trusted. I hope Sony/PlayStation receive a lot of complaints becau...
