Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I am by no means an expert (so I might be mistaken) but I’m pretty sure all the vehicles control similarly throughout the series. It does make sense eventually and one of my favourite bits in the first game is in a warthog.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've played (and admittedly I have played far fewer games than most Cane and Rinsers... Cane and Rinsies??? :P). I think Leon definitely prefers us to be called Cane and Rinsies 🤣 I would second the Yakuza recommendation. The characters are easy to fall in love with and grow attached to and the nar...

Re: PS1 games and exclusives leaving PSN - Grab them while you can!

Yeah my disappointment is mainly in missing out on some of the digital PS1 games. I have a large number of them physically but there’s a couple worth so much physically I was going to sell and buy digitally. Seems so weird that just disappear and they don’t transfer them to ps now or a different ser...

Re: PS1 games and exclusives leaving PSN - Grab them while you can!

It was available until late March: https://www.pushsquare.com/news/2021/03/sony_locks_the_door_on_legacy_web-based_ps_store Absolutely gutted! I had no idea you could access it through a back door hyperlink! It was supposed to be officially closed last year so I didn’t even look for a way around it:(

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

I watched the next 4 episodes. It’s stunning. Absolutely phenomenal stuff. I can’t believe what I’m seeing some of the time. I’ve recommended it to a few people with mixed results as obviously the fight scenes can turn away the more squeamish. Agree with you on the Patreon pod that it has shades of ...

Re: Games Completed 2021

Man, what a game. Sounds like you had a great time with it. I think I took almost six months to finish the game, and that was playing almost every day, and by the end I really felt like the world was a place I'd been and the characters were people I knew. I almost missed them when they were gone. T...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I just got to the first ending of Drakengard . Before when I've got to this stage with a Yoko Taro game I post each ending up on the Games Completed thread, but I don't think I'll do that here until I'm fully done with the game. Most of the reason I did it before is because at the time I wasn't eve...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Wow! I just watched the trailer and I’m definitely interested. To be honest the logo and the name made it sound like the most generic programme ever and Sky originals tend to be on the average to poor side of things. You’ve surprised me! I had completely dismissed this. I did the same but it kept a...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Started Gangs of London last night as I kept seeing popping up as something worth checking out. Created by Gareth (The Raid) Evans and yeah, it fits neatly alongside his Indonesian films in that the action is expertly choreographed and incredible violent to boot. I'm only a few episodes in so far (...

Re: Videogame News

Not happy about this. A lot of digital only content now just made inaccessible. The ending to Asura's Wrath, the entirety of Drakengard 3 (in EU at least) and its DLC, a bunch of smaller indie games, etc. The PS3 isn't even that old, and the Vita is even newer. And it's hardly as if Sony is forced ...

Re: 464 - Wave Race 64

Wave Race will always remind me of a time when playground gossip and mythos would obscure fact from fiction. I was a PlayStation owner. The Nintendo 64 was a console i dabbled with at Christmas and during occasional enforced play dates. After concentrating heavily on my quarter of the often tiny CRT...

During the period of time this was released my PlayStation Vita had become ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Been dabbling in some emulation stuff again recently. First trying out Drakengard on PCSX2. Being a big Nier fan this is something I've long felt like I should at least try out at some point. But hearing about what it's like, I always suspected I probably wouldn't like it. So far my expectations ha...

Re: First or memorable platinums/ 100% achievements

There are certain games like certain telltale ones where you get a platinum simply by playing the game to completion which sort of defeats the point I think. My worst platinum was probably fallout 4 which required the residents of one of your encampments to have 100% happiness. I spent so long putti...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Took a break from "AC: Valhalla" to play a few hours of NieR: Automata this evening, and I'm enjoying it so much more than AC: Vahalla that I feel sort of guilty (I want to like "AC: Valhalla" more than I do). It's creative and thoughtful. The musical score is gorgeous. Combat i...

Re: The Sound of Play submission thread

Sea of Thieves has become a wonderful biweekly escape for our ragbag crew of Nick, Darren and I. In amongst all the cooking, looting, grog slurping and emote buying we’ve slowly chipped away at the tall tales. It’s been a bit of a revelation in all honesty as I’ve been channeling my inner goonie and...

Re: Games Completed 2021

Like a crazy person, I decided last year to play through all the games on C&R in order, though I got slightly side tracked by Demon's Souls and Cyberpunk (which I have yet to really play) I've been sort of doing this as well but also hopping between the podcast list from the current year too. N...
