Agree completely. Great post and great game. It’s a short, perfectly formed piece and it made me genuinely sad that Microsoft bought the studio. I worry their creative vision will be hampered.

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

So, I started the Sopranos. Finishing up season one. Completely brilliant show. I hope you enjoy it! I remember marathoning every single episode with my dad the month before I started university. He even downloaded the recipes to make Sopranos food (and when James Gandolfini died a few years ago co...

Re: Demon's Souls

Hey everyone, gradually working my way through the game on PS5 and am truly in love like I was with Dark Souls.

If anyone wants a co-op buddy for early parts of the game I’d be happy to oblige. I’m by no means any good at the game but let me know.

The telltale sam and Max games are pretty brilliant I think and channel the Lucasarts classic really well.

I have a problem with the d-pad compared to the PlayStation one. I make far more mistakes. Not a huge fan of the new pad.

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

I turned off direct connection to my PS4 and did it over wi-fi. My PS4 worked as an inferior hotspot when I directly connected. It all depends on the connection speed. I have fibre broadband with a good upload/download speed. My 4G mobile network speed is super quick so playing when out and about is...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

I’ve used it a lot on my phone and laptop with excellent results. I used a wired connection to my PS4 then a DualShock with Bluetooth adapter for laptop or connected directly to my phone. I played parts of resident evil 2, yakuza and days gone without issue. I played from hotels in other countries a...

Re: Videogame News

Delighted to hear about the new Indiana Jones game yesterday. Despite being a huge fan of the films (excluding the last one) I haven't played any of the games. I am a big fan of Machine Games after their Wolfenstein games, so I expect they will do a good job, I just hope Lucasfilm doesn't restrict ...

Re: What's Out This Week?

I know the RPG elements put off some of my friends at the time. My levelled up character made short work of enemies whilst my mates continually died. It felt like castle crashers in that you are supposed to level up to finish it although I’m sure someone like Ben could finish it without!

Re: What's Out This Week?

Never played Scott Pilgrim, looking forward to seeing what the fuss is about! At the time it was a good side scrolling brawler with a few extra bells and whistles like castle crashers. The soundtrack and the fact it disappeared meant it gained a bit of a cult status. Not sure what kind of splash it...

I’ll probably rebuy. Would be a good co-op game too.

Tearaway Unfolded - Lost a lot of its charm for me in the transition from the vita. Still good though.

Astrobot Rescue Mission - wow! What a fantastic game. Clever use of VR and I’m surprised there hasn’t been a VR follow up.

Re: Games Completed 2021

05/01 - Brutal Legend Finally finished this after all these years, but honestly I can't say my existing feelings about it have changed. If anything I'm just more sure of them. I really like the world and aesthetic, and the soundtrack is great, but I really dislike the actual game. As an action game...
