Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Driveclub - PlayStation Plus version (PS4) I'm certainly not a fan of PlayStation Plus and never have been (especially becoming a requirement for online PS4 play) but well, I couldn't resist Modern Warfare 2 remastered this month so I got myself a month. Anyway, I had a brief look through my PS4 PS...

Re: Videogame Deals

The hugely fun and popular 'football with cars' game Rocket League is going free-to-play very soon.

(Possibly something to do with the lootbox/gambling issues I expect.)

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Journey (PlayStation 3) - After many years and getting the game for free recently I got the chance to experience Journey. All the positive things I have to say about it relate to the visuals to be honest. The game itself I found to be hugely confusing and lifeless - set in a game world far too expa...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Journey (PlayStation 3) - (maybe with some narration) :twisted: I have enormous respect and admiration that Journey doesn't feel the need to entertain you with its mechanics or tell you what to do before pushing your dopamine buttons. In fact, it deliberately frustrates you at various points in ord...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

That’s very interesting Rob. I know some people that haven’t found it is a revelatory as the critical reception suggested but I’ve rarely heard anyone speak about it so negatively. You’ve listed a couple of my favourite games in your post so I suspect it’s probably a personal preference. I suppose ...

Re: Videogame Deals

Injustice: Gods Among Us is currently free to download on Xbox 360/XB1 and PS4. The Steam version might also be free. When I search for the game on Steam it shows 100% off (free) but then the store page changes it to full price for me. Not sure what's going on. Good shout. Thanks! The Steam version...

Re: The Last of Us Part II

So the Metacritic scores are very strange. 95% average from critics, 3.9/10 from 50,000+ user ratings.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Need for Speed (2015) I don't know how I feel about this one really. It's a mix of great and poor in my opinion. The game is great visually, I'm sure all would agree and the cutscenes with the live actors blending in with the game cars and garage is possibly the most impressive visual effect I've s...

Re: The Last of Us Part II

Sounds very odd, especially with TLOU being one of the highest rated games of the entire the PS3 library. It's not like they need to worry about sales figures. I haven't played TLOU 1 yet, it's another one of those games I need to get to one day. Regarding ND's releases, I thought the Jak & Daxter g...

Re: The Last of Us Part II

Yeah I've seen plenty of shouting about 'paid for' reviews too. I just don't believe that happens, at least not with reputable sites. I heard a lot about this over TLOU - Part II as well. Is it that reviewers aren't allowed to reveal the story or something and if they do they get punished or lose t...

Re: Videogame Deals

EA access (PS4/XB1) is currently 74% off for the first month and can be cancelled anytime. £0.79 for a month of access to all the games is well worth it if you've got the time to play a lot. The library is much bigger on XB1 with many 360 titles available but the PS4 library is still very good (FIFA...

The Lego Ninjago Movie Video Game is free for one day only. 15.05.20 (today) so grab it quick!

The XB1 and Steam versions are free. Possibly the PS4 version too.
I can confirm, PS4 version is also free.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Roblox (with a friend's daughter). Much like with Minecraft (but even more so) I could instantly appreciate the games open-ended creative possibilities and could fully understand how many children who play the game, play nothing else. In Roblox, you can play and create pretty much anything you can t...

Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake

They really should have released the whole game in remake form instead of chopping it up, taking risks mixing things up and generally making a mess of things by the end. After playing the demo I was set on buying the game day one but after reading the comments here and hearing about a part 2 and pos...

Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake

Thank you for sharing your review and opinions on the game with us. It made an interesting read for someone like myself, a huge fan of the original still waiting to experience the remake in full. I was pleased to read your opinion of the game upon completion was not one of disappointment. I'm glad y...
