Re: Videogame News

Getting to play symphony of the night again is always good news- but I can't be the only one who didn't instantly think "that's nice, now put it on switch."

Probably will buy- never played Rondo of blood.

Re: Your questions for Fumito Ueda (Ico, SotC, The Last Guardian)

Wow, what a coup! Congrats! Questions: the protagonists in ico, sotc, and the last guardian are all to some extent young, slight, vulnerable, and inelegant. Personally, i love how they contrast against typically more empowering protagonists and accentuate the grand scale of the games they're in. Wha...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Save transfer on switch is happening at just the right time for me. I borrowed my friend's switch after he was done with Zelda. I'll be getting one soon-ish for Mario. Nice to know I'll be able to transfer my Zelda and Puyo Tetris saves over.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm coming towards the end of playing Cuphead. Extraordinarily good game. Like everyone else who talks about it has to mention, it is very very beautiful and very very difficult. I didn't find it frustrating at all playing through it the first time. However, playing through it on expert (I'm about h...

Re: Bayonetta 2 - Cane and Rinse 290

Loved the show, particularly the contributions from Yoshesque, who articulated some of Bayonetta 2's granular failings, which as a mediocre player I couldn't identify, but potentially contributed to my somewhat muted response to the game. I adored the first Bayonetta. After getting it from Lovefilm ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

That is a shame. Tried the lower difficulty? I found changing the control type helps. Dodge is on L2, block on L1, hit on R1. You never need to move your hands off the right stick, which gives those fractions of sections you need. Headphones or whacking the volume up is really useful too. The white ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I went back to Furi. I'd been a little stuck on the 4th boss and put it down ages ago. Flew through 4,5,6,7, and 8 yesterday though. On the last one now. It's definitely a bit clunky and visually incoherent. The 8th boss is particularly annoying as it's easy to lose track of which character is you a...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

Yes, third for Timesplitters. Again, particularly the second one. I remember PS2 magazine at the time consistently brought up Timesplitters 2 and how it was the best. They were right.

So much silly fun to be had in that game. The aiming dead zone must seem like madness to go back to now though.

Re: Our next-but-one podcast recording (22.7.17): Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver

Interesting vid on the world bending of Soul Reaver that might be of interest for the pod: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVdiC38eJCo My only memory of Soul Reaver was a demo that I played on repeat. I may be misremembering but I think I played that and a demo for Rollcage on the same disc for mont...

Re: Splatoon 2

Enjoyed, but was not blown away by Splatfest. Similar to how I felt about the original Splatoon to be honest. I love the concept, style, how tangible the ink feels, the way you switch between shooting and swimming. Only Nintendo could approach such an overpopulated genre and have a genuinely fresh t...

Re: Viewtiful Joe - Cane and Rinse 275

Great episode. I picked up a copy years ago as I knew it was a bit of a cult classic. Played it for half an hour, thought it was cool but was playing something else at the time. Standard 'will get to' game. After listening to this, I went into the loft last week and dug it out. Really looking forwar...

Re: Super Hexagon

My first game of Super Hexagon probably lasted about 3 seconds, and in that time I was completely gripped. After my first few gos, once my heart slowed a little and the game stopped seeming like just a whirl of colour and noise, I noticed the repeating sections for each level: spirally bit, 180s, ba...

Re: All things DOOM

LOVED DOOM (2016) though maybe a shade too long? Also, while I liked that it was essentially an arena combat game, it's hard to remember individual sequences because the combat loop was based around enemies teleporting into closed rooms which you barrel around in for an exciting 5 minutes. It's less...

Re: INSIDE (spoiler-filled narrative discussion)

The whole game is about manipulation, and the more I think about it and reflect, the more I think the boy is a puppet the entire time. You were playing as the blob right from the word go, controlling this boy (this is a fairly popular theory at the moment, I lay no claim to it). The alternative end...

I beat Olmec today. Ballsed up the hell-run on first level ice caves, but pretty smooth run from there.

Re: Spelunky Sundays!

I ran out of bombs in hell, but got to Yama. Died on a spike trap of all things. Bloody climbing gloves.

Not bad really since I hadn't played in a while.

Re: Geek Fitness

Since moving house about 6 or so months ago, and with it work hours etc changing, bad habits- takeaways- creeping in, I've begun to get a bit soft around the edges. Due to personal circumstances I'd eased off running for the past year but now I'm getting back into it. I ran a pre-Christmas half mara...
