Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Crash Team Racing I've not played the original from the PS1, but saw way too many people gushing over CTR that I had to give the remaster a go. It's a great kart racer for sure, but the adventure mode seems to be really hard from a very early point. I also tried to play online but came last every t...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I played some more Red Dead Redemption 2 over the weekend, and I just can't get into it. It's just slow and due to that it's failing to grab me. I've heard such good things so I want to persevere, but the game really isn't making it easy to make me want to play it. On top of that I've been cracking ...

Re: Videogame Deals

Starlink, with toys, is now down to £12.99 for all platforms on Amazon. And I thought the £17 I paid on Switch was a bargain! £14.99 now, but still a bargain! Is it good? I was considering it but not completely sure. I played it on the Switch and it was alright. I spent £20 on it and didn't feel li...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I bit the bullet and decided to pick up Red Dead Redemption 2.

After the longest game install in history I had a couple of hours on it last, and boy does that game start incredibly slowly. I'm hoping once the world opens up and I can do more of my own thing the pacing gets a little better.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Onrush After playing it to death at launch, mostly on the Xbox, I've jumped back into Onrush but carrying on playing on the PS4 (as I've flogged my Xbone). It's still an amazing game and it's such a shame it didn't do better. It's perfect for a quick bash or losing hours playing. Division 2 Again, ...

Re: Games Completed 2019

.. definitely a game I'll replay at some point and show off to friends who fancy seeing what VR is all about. Given that it didn't allow you to restart chapters, when you finish the game, does it give you the option to select a chapter to play, eg in London Heist you could stick on the van shooting...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Devil May Cry 5 I really want to play through this as I've finished every other game in the franchise, but I'm struggling. It's just not a very good game. The combat isn't a patch on what we had in the previous instalments, especially 3. The locations you find yourself in are so bland, and are just...

Re: 383: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes/The Phantom Pain

MGS5 just doesn't feel like a Metal Gear game, heck it doesn't even sound like one due to the baffling decision to remove David Hayter as the voice of Snake. The change in voice actor actually makes sense when you take into account that... It's not actually Snake Well I'll be damned! That's what I ...

Re: 383: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes/The Phantom Pain

To say I'm a fan of the Metal Gear series is an understatement, I've a Kojima fox tattoo on my shoulder and have played and finished every game.....expect MGS5. Metal Gear Solid 4 was the perfect end to the series I fell in love with, and would have been quite happy with that being the end of the fr...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

After finally getting round to finishing God of War I decided it's time to sit down and polish off the games I started but got put on the back burner. Horizon Zero Dawn I started playing this when it first came out, but not long after picked up Breath of the Wild so Horizon was quickly forgotten abo...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Don't get me wrong, I've played all the games in the franchise from the day they were released, and have enjoyed them all to some degree (yes, even 2). It's more me than it is them, I just feel like going back to the old look and feel was a step back, but I get that's what people love and I'm certai...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

When I mentioned 5 feeling dated to me it's more the look of the characters and the way they act, not how the game plays.

It has that early 2000's nu metal vibe to me which wasn't cool back then, and certainly isn't now :D

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Wow, I didn't expect this when I said I prefer DMC to Devil May Cry 5. I love Devil May Cry 1 and 3, but felt after the disappointing 4 that the right idea was to re-boot the franchise and give it some new life. For me Ninja Theory did an amazing job and gave me a game that was just more fun to play...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

God of War '18 I started the latest God of War back when it came out in April of last year, but for some reason it didn't click with me so it got put on the back burner. I decided to go back to it over the weekend and fell in love, to the point I played through and finished the story portion of the...
