Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Played through the bonus chapters of Night in the Woods after finishing the main game. Both are pretty short and simple, but they were a nice addition to the full experience. The first, Longest Night, serves as something of a prequel to the main game. It takes place at some point before it, and cons...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

I thought it was a surprisingly good show. Not sure why people are complaining about it not covering PS5 stuff. I mean, I guess I do know why. People are ravenous for PS5 info, even when told explicitly that it's not coming. But actually there ended up being more PS5 news than I was expecting. But i...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've started another run through Devil May Cry 5 , mostly because I wanted to refresh my experience of it in preparation for the upcoming pod episode. This time I've been trying to dig in to actually building some pre-planned combos. I've created a couple for Nero so far, and they're nothing special...

Re: Games Completed 2020

I actually looked up what he's up to while revisiting Braid, and he is working on something. Although he's pretty quiet about it, like he was with The Witness. Apparently he's making a game codenamed "Sokoban", since it's based around the same concept as the original game of that name. Looks like a ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Honestly the only ones I've found worth giving much time to are the Forza Horizon games. They're great, and pretty much nothing else comes close. At least out of the kinds of racers that appeal to me. I hear people who are in to hardcore PC sims love Assetto Corsa. And despite Grid not being amazing...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

What you playing it on, Scrustle? I've been tempted by the Switch port. You mean Autosport? That's not a port of this new game, it's a port of the previous game in the series from 2014. Originally a 360/PS3 game. Autosport isn't a bad game though. It still doesn't really capture what made the origi...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Scrustle, I recommend this review on Grid 2019, it makes some comparisons with footage to the original and honestly I was shocked. https://youtu.be/6sc4P4LPS9Q Yup, this person gets it. Very close to my experience, and what I suspected the game would end up being like from previews. The original ha...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Lately I've been playing Grid , the 2019 game. When this game first got announced I was cautiously optimistic, being a big fan of the original. I was hoping they would be able to recapture what made that game so good, and hopefully avoid the pitfalls of the sequels. Although as time went on marketin...

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

Yeah I agree with Kurt. I can't get interested when they didn't really show anything of the games themselves. I can see it very much being the case that a lot of the games they announced or had trailers for might be something I would be really happy with. But what they actually showed got most of th...

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

So apparently Halo Infinite is going to be a "platform", and they're not expecting to be making any full sequel for the foreseeable future. The article did also say this doesn't mean it's a service game, but come on, what else is that word supposed to mean? Not doing a lot to instill confidence... h...

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

Yeah it was pretty anticlimactic. Not that I'm particularly surprised by that. It seems to be the way things usually go with Xbox. Despite my musings, the only things that I did definitely expect to show up were Halo, Forza, and Fable. All three did, but the latter two were nothing more than "it exi...

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

I think outside of the clearly obvious stuff like Forza and Halo, Fable is easily the safest bet for an announcement. I'd put it even up to 90% certainty. It's no secret that Playground set up a new studio, and have been openly looking to hire people with experience in RPGs, open world and fantasy g...

Re: Video game tie-in media

I generally don't think tying plot to outside works of another medium is a good idea at all. Most of the time all it does is hurt the plot of the game, and cuts up the audience and their level of understanding. It comes across as very cynical, trying to get you to buy more product in order to fix an...

Re: Ninjala (Nintendo Switch)

I'm not hugely familiar with multiplayer competitive melee combat games, since I also don't really think the idea works very well, so I don't tend to play much of them. But from what I have played, and just from how this sort of combat works in general, I think I know why it doesn't really work. The...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

A few days ago I started Shadow Warrior 2 , since they announced the third game recently, and I've been meaning to get around to this one for a while. I was kind of hesitant to try this one, even though I have had it sitting on my GOG account for ages thanks to some giveaway that happened years ago....
