Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Played a little bit more of Dangerous Driving after a short break. I'm still enjoying it, but this game sure does like to make that hard sometimes. The bugs are just insane. It feels like it's getting worse the longer I play too. Maybe something to do with the increased speeds causing extra weirdnes...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

I assume the ray tracing will be scaled back and not used in a major way. Like to just make reflections a bit better. Which I like the sound of, if it means we can move past screen space reflections and not have big holes in the visual effect. The technology is improving quite quickly as well. Maybe...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

Sony just released a bunch of info about the next Playstation. It supports ray tracing, can run 8K, has a super fast SSD, backwards compatibility, and reads discs as well. https://www.wired.com/story/exclusive-sony-next-gen-console/ I expect some of that stuff is only technically correct, or will ch...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Cool! I'm curious, though. What do you make of the absence of proper semi-hidden shortcuts and alternative routes on the tracks? Have you discovered any? I haven't spotted any. It wasn't something I was even thinking about playing. The tracks all seem pretty walled in from what I can tell. So far e...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Picked up Dangerous Driving . Finally, after all these years of having nothing even remotely like a new Burnout, this comes along to scratch that long unsatisfied itch. First impressions are really positive. I'm enjoying it a lot so far. I've got through all of the Sedan class events, and almost all...

I'm playing an open world game with interesting and engaging gameplay.

This is... curious.
What form of sandbox is this?

Re: Games Completed 2019

The GoW games as envisioned by Jaffe and Barlog are about "The End of Myth". About the self-destructive nature of the Ancient World. Kratos is a mindless beast with delusions of civilization created by other similar beasts who is destined to end them and himself in the process. As a metaphor, I thi...

Re: Games Completed 2019

snip You actually bring up what would be my counterpoint to that. Kratos isn't a bad character just because he's a bad person, and that can and has been done better. I agree that GoW1 actually did it fairly well. That was a nice (mostly) self-contained story that fit the game's inspiration in being...

Re: Videogame News

From what I've been seeing, early impressions are pretty positive. It seems it will be what it looks like. A bit rough around the edges and light on content, but with a solid core that scratches the Burnout itch. I like the sound of some of the tweaks they're making to the formula too. Nothing major...

Re: The Games BAFTAs

God of War seems a bit over-represented, but overall I don't have much of a problem with it winning a lot of stuff. It deserves it. And I'm not sure exactly what the time window of eligibility was for these, but there wasn't really much else released around the same time that stood much of a chance....

Re: Anthem

Frankly, Jason Schreier's recent work, as well as similar stuff from other writers, has thoroughly put me off the idea of ever wanting to get in to the games industry. It sounds like absolute hell. Brilliant journalism though, of course. As a bit of a continuation on this story, Polygon did a piece ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Today I've been playing a whole lot of Forza Horizon 3 . I still play this game somewhat regularly, despite still also playing a whole lot of FH4 too. I just don't tend to talk about them, because there usually isn't much to say. These games have always been kind of a background, evergreen thing for...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Played a little bit more of Grid 2 and I think it's rather telling that I keep seeming to forget I've got this game on the go. I've put a decent amount of time in to it now, about 6 hours according to Steam. The lack of variety is becoming really apparent. In that time the game hasn't changed meanin...

Re: Dark Souls III

Just listened to the podcast episode and had some thoughts. Never quite sure of the right place to post this kind of thing following the Patreon release.
