Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I have gone back to Deus Ex in a big way. Man, this game is so good. The Hong Kong hub and the spokes that lead off it are some of the most fun questing I've had in a game for quite a while. I'm now at the submarine and naval base, and I just love how you can think and plan your way through each sit...

Re: Shameless Self Promotion

I ended up writing 3500 words on the level design for Thief II's campaign... it really is some of the best level design and structure I've played.

Re: Whatcha Been Listening To?

Run the Jewels put up the first two songs from the upcoming RTJ4 for listen and download in all the usual places, and both are fantastic. El-P is trying some different things with the production although it's still hard-hitting, and on Ooh La La he gets boombap legend DJ Premier involved as well. Mi...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Simonsloth, good to hear you're resting up and feeling better. Be good to yourself and take the time you need, where you can. I played just a little bit of Bloodborne last night, since I noticed it was the 5th anniversary of it coming out. Decided to stop before I fell into a complete hole with it a...

Re: Gaming firsts /most influential games

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind The first one that comes to mind for me. I pre-ordered this back in 2002 with a bit of money I had from my birthday I think, just based on the Amazon entry for it. The idea of being able to freely roam around was totally new to me. And it became the first game I fel...

Re: Shameless Self Promotion

One of my favourite things is talking to my brother about interesting games, especially immersive sims, so now we've got a website as an excuse to do so. It's called Vent Crawlers and it is all about why we like 0451 games. Latest article is about consistent physics and systems and how they benefit ...

Re: Let's have a thread about the virus, then. We might as well.

We have a movement restriction in Malaysia, announced last night and beginning tomorrow (Wednesday). Nobody in or out and no mass gatherings. Sudden spike in the number of cases being reported (went from about 200 up to 550+ over the past 72hrs) contributes to the feeling of this having happened ver...

Re: Sound of Play: 240 - The Assassin's Creed special

Assassin's Creed: Black Flag Black Flag Main Theme UNREuwdJCw0 The main theme is a banger - the way it instantly conjures up those roiling seas and salty ports in your mind when you hear it is fantastic. For me it might even beat Hans Zimmer's themes for Pirates of the Caribbean as far as ear-worm ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

As a huge fan of the Jedi Knight series since what, when Mysteries of the Sith came out, it is weird how I have no compulsion to play that game. Especially considering it's a Respawn joint!

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I would love to see how doing a playstyle-focused playthrough would recontextualise the places in Skyrim and Morrowind I am so familiar with. Oblivion I have only played for a few hours and honestly it is a good excuse to back to it as I'm all about stealth and assassin games at the moment. Speaking...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Shame they haven't quite nailed thief for a modern market but maybe skyrim as a per-person stealing stuff suffices instead? Funny you should mention that as I've been meaning to go back to Oblivion and do the Thieves' Guild and Dark Brotherhood questlines as a sneaky Khajiit sometime. I haven't don...

Haha I did go way back with Thief Gold... and since this is my first experience with the Hitman games, I am pretty tempted to delve back into the oldies eventually.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Hitman 2 Technically I've started with the missions for Hitman 2016, as I managed to get the full version of this game with the GOTY Legacy Pack in a sale. So I did Hawke's Bay from 2, then went back to the 2016 stuff and did the training missions, Sapienza and Paris. It's so damn good. Glad to hav...
