That's a belter, Clarence. Always loved that theme even more than the brilliant intro.
Couldn’t agree more! That is a fine piece of nostalgia.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

The first hour is very much generic 90s shooter then after a bit it starts to show it’s true colours and is quite brilliant! Give it a few more and you’ll see!

This is absolutely brilliant! Proper Friday night shenanigans. I can’t get any of them apart from number 3 though!

Re: Death Stranding

Interestingly I’ve been listening to the Giant Bomb game of the year podcasts and their attitude towards the game was quite juvenile if I’m being honest. Huge sweeping statements from individuals who haven’t really invested in the game or were forced to rush review it pre-release. It’s not for every...

Re: Death Stranding

It’s tricky to gauge tone from written word. Your post to be honest came across as extremely condescending but now you’ve clarified that you were being sincere it’s a very different prospect. I think to most people describing something as silly then saying good for you immediately after could be con...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Worst/best for me was playing Ikaruga. I would dream of my routes all night and then wake up stressed and nail it. Happened a few times and I started getting it again recently playing Mushihimesama Futari. It's restless sleep but it's extra processing time, as well. You internalise movements and sp...

Re: Death Stranding

For many reasons I find his output absolutely fascinating. You have to be prepared in that with every emotional moment around the corner there’s something bonkers or fourth wall breaking. His games are a complete mish mash of things and by no means would I put him on a pedestal for writing but for m...

Re: Games Completed 2020

For any individual we would recommend playing along with some rather than all! Haha! I’d already put Red Dead 2 away for a rainy day/week/month so I’d admitted defeat even before the first show was recorded! I’ll still do my best as there a few games I’ve already played so a few weeks when I will b...

Realising there’s almost no way I’m going to be able to play along successfully this year! I’ve got a week to finish Assassins Creed Origins and this year is full to brim of games I haven’t played!

Re: Games Completed 2020

Ouch. I remember the backlash at the time and having that in my mind going in I thought it was pretty good and didn’t really see all the fuss. I won’t go back as I think I’ll probably hate it too. I’m not sure whether I deliberately tried to like it to be edgy. I was like that back then so who knows!

Re: The Great Big CaR Forum Quiz 2019!

Hooray! Glad you extended the deadline. I had to sit down with those anagrams and write all the letters randomly on a sheet of paper to solve them. Took me ages. Few answers I completely botched like Steve Carell’s characters in the office: Michael Stark haha. Think I was remembering his action hero...

Hi Alex, I’m itching to know the results. Maybe you could see if Jay/Leon would announce it on next months patreon podcast? You’ve put in so much effort so there’s no harm in asking:)

Jan 10 - Spectre of Torment. Quite possibly my favourite out the lot so far. Incredible.

You’d think but if you click on the link it seems too much to be trolling. If it is trolling it requires a new level of commitment to the craft.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

That infographic is pure stupidity. They state that after a few hours they had learnt nothing.... just some basic mechanics.
Isn’t that something?
Idiot.

Apologies. Bad day.

I’ve been playing God of War. It is excellent 🤩
