Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Agree, so many Japanese games have really evocative titles. Like Octopath Traveler, it sounds so different and interesting compared to the rote naming conventions in much of mainstream western media. I mean what would a western company call it, The Sacred Flame? Kingdom of Darkness? Names like Final...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

So the main quest is done but obviously most of The Witcher 3 is side stuff so I'm still very much playing this. A couple of thoughts on the ending and impressions of the first expansion, spoilered in places. Base game, post-credits spoilers: One of my very few gripes with the base game is a churlis...

Re: Games Completed 2021

That's much how I played it and I really recommend it. These last few days it's been sprog on one arm, cup of tea to the other side and some of the finest storytelling I could hope for to enjoy. You could take everything else out of this game and it would be an astonishingly good visual novel or nar...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Yeah the Stadia one from last year, they just recently released it on console, same time as the DLC dropped.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Played the Immortals: Fenyx Rising demo on Switch. I don't know if the whole game is like this but this demo takes place on an exclusive archipelago full of light puzzles and fights including a boss. It's very compact and dense with stuff to do, unlike most Ubisoft game worlds where it's more expans...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

In quarantine for two weeks and have my laptop handy with a Steam backlog offering hundreds of hours of new experiences, so naturally I'm replaying a Dishonored game again. Did the first two missions of Death of the Outsider. I've now played Follow the Ink, the second level, three times and I still ...

Re: Resident Evil 2 (2019)

To be honest I only played this in the daylight, these zombos are much too well designed and rendered for my liking now. Used to be fine when they were bumbling polygon-people going "muurrr!". It is impressive that despite all the DMX memes and stuff, and him becoming a bit of a punchline,...

Re: Resident Evil 2 (2019)

As I understand it you get the true final boss and ending cinematic by doing both, plus the B scenario remixes the areas and encounters a bit. I haven't done this yet as I did half of Claire A then fell off, eventually went back and ran through Leon A. It'll be a nice way to revisit the game at some...

Re: Demon's Souls

The DLC is amazing indeed but I've not gone through on the NG+ character just yet. Saving it for a little later in the year :)

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been playing Slay the Spire as well on my android phone. It's fun, haven't beaten it yet though.

It's very similiar to a free to play knock-off I played a lot of last year called Dungeon Takes, so I might have spoilered some of the mechanics for myself, haha.

Re: Demon's Souls

It's a shame the co-op and PvP has been less.

If I get a copy I'll let you know, that would be fun!

I just finished a NG+ playthrough of Dark Souls 2. Hope you enjoy it, it's a really massive game with a lot of depth.

That's the kind of thing I'd jump at if I had the game! Happy sun-broing man :)

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Still playing Hitman 3 , doing Silent Assassin runs and challenges, maxing out the Mastery for these missions. I got obsessed with the Dubai level. I like to go back and do everything there is to do in a location once I've beaten the campaign, but Dubai really comes into its own when you start explo...

Re: Shameless Self Promotion

Hitman 3 uses gameplay and design elements I already knew well to tell a surprisingly compelling story. I wrote about my impressions of how IO cleverly did this on Medium:

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

The Witcher is such a cultural touchstone now, and the VO for Geralt so excellent, that I'd feel odd experiencing it in another language. Although apparently the books draw on a lot of Polish/ Slavic folklore and heritage which gives the world its unique culture so in that way it has an inherent Pol...
