Re: 417: Marvel's Spider-Man

The best compliment you could ever say about Spiderman is that you feel like Spiderman. From movement to script to acting to being in the city it feels like a mostly perfect mix of providing the ability to be the friendly neighbourhood hero you want to be. Which meant it all felt good to play, every...

Re: 435: Halo 5: Guardians

Halo 5 felt like it was caught between two ambitions, one for 343 to do something that provided their own stamp after 4 and another to still try and make it feel like Halo. It is not the most even of campaigns and suffers from the same fractured storytelling that the second game had, albeit I did en...

Yeah I enjoyed Abzu, just didn't really like the very end stage.
Do you mean the stage with the increasing water level or the stage before that in the large open area with arches? Trying to be a bit vague here as I do not want to spoil too much.

Re: Resident Evil 2 (2019)

I am pretty close to Leon A, and been running a little comparison by playing the original PS1 title in tandem with this. I think that they have been very clever in how they have adapted the title to the new viewpoint and adjusted the sense of atmosphere. The soundtrack and foly work are excellent, c...

Re: Games Completed 2019

Jan: Moss - PSVR How did you enjoy Moss? I've been teetering towards getting PSVR but I'm not totally sure yet. Moss is one of the games that has me almost convinced. Charming, wonderful and truly a title that shows how VR can provide a very special type of game. Basically the title uses individual...

Re: Our next-but-one podcast recording (22.2.19) - 356: NieR:Automata

Most titles that I play incur feelings that range from excited to bored, but few ever really touch me. Few manage to make me have a visceral emotional reaction to what I am seeing, what I am doing. Nier Automata gave me a sensation which resulted in a huge outpouring of conflicting emotions by the e...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I also had a little shot of the Anthem demo and I like the movement and the abilities. With a team i think it could be a lot of fun and quite tactical. Also loving the sound design as well, that felt really good However the technical bit around it is really causing a problem. Loading problems, hangs...

Re: How do you feel about monetisation in games?

I don't play any games that have monetisation. DMC V, unfortunately, is going to be on that list. Out of interest is this out of principle? Completely accepting of your choice to do so, I am purely curious if this is a stance that you have taken due to something or because you want to do it for ano...

Re: How do you feel about monetisation in games?

In regards to Far Cry and Saints Row you are correct, I should have been more specific in regards to the later entries but that was my fault for being too general. I very much meant the later entries that have come out over the last 4-5 years. So my apologies for that one. And I can agree that what...

Re: How do you feel about monetisation in games?

You are correct, we can and have done, but we have also had lots of open world games with them as well. Saints Row, Far Cry, Horizon: Zero Dawn and Origins had some form of ability upgrade tree if my memory serves me correctly. Saints Row does have a "Respect" XP system, true. It's difficult to fin...

Re: How do you feel about monetisation in games?

That is not to say that a lot of the titles I play do not have options to pay real world money for items or boosters but I have never felt adversely affected or stunted by their inclusion, nor have I felt overly bothered by the prompting as most of the time you simply skip past it. For this reason ...

Re: How do you feel about monetisation in games?

I struggle to have an issue with monetization but that is mainly because I have never played a game that I felt had been directly affected by it. I should note at the start that I do not play mobile games regularly, if at all. That is not to say that a lot of the titles I play do not have options to...

Re: Volume Eight

It’s closer to City for sure. It’s not quite as wide open, there are a few bottlenecks in the map, but it’s not as tight as Asylum. It’s a solid game though, doesn’t feel ‘flabby’ like Knight does, has some interesting new mechanics and some memorable boss fights. Probably my second favourite of th...

Re: Volume Eight

I'd love to replay Dino Crisis, but short of sourcing an original copy and playing it on my PS3 I'm not sure how to go about it. Has it ever come out on anything else? EDIT: Aha, Wikipedia suggests it was released for PSN. How did I miss that!? I've been wanting to replay this for years! Wonder how...
