Re: What's Out This Week?

Oh cool, The Touryst. I think that only got like one trailer, in that big Direct a while back that was full of loads of indie games that seem to have all been rather quiet since. That game is still a bit of a mystery, but it looked rather cool before. Interested to see the reception.

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

ODST is another that expects you to have played 2 to understand what the hell is going on. I like that one too, but I'm not as crazy about it as others. It's a neat off-shoot that tries some different things and has a really cool mood to it.

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

Are any of the Halo games standalone stories to a certain extent? I'd like to try one of the newer ones on Game Pass but don't know where to start? I'm sure Combat Evolved holds up very well but I've no interested in playing through them all. The main numbered games do have a narrative through-line...

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

I heard that Obsidian is supposedly revealing a new IP at this show, and there will be more news on Bleeding Edge as well. I assume the former will more likely be just a tease for something launching on the next gen, but it'll still be interesting to see what their first Microsoft-owned game will be.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

So after the behemoth that was Yakuza 0, I decided to try the demos for other entries to see what the rest of the series has to offer. Happy to see someone new jump on board the series. The best place to go after 0 is probably Kiwami 1, and then playing through the series in chronological order. Wi...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Still playing Control . I think I'm near the end now. On to chapter 8. Honestly as time has gone on I've started to get a bit weary of it. I mean, I still do think it's more good than bad, but certain irritations have been harder to ignore as the game has gone on, as the honeymoon period wore off. I...

Re: What's Out This Week?

Rune 2 out so soon? I was expecting it would still be at least a year away or so. That doesn't exactly bode well.

Golem happens to be the first game that Marty O'Donnell has worked on since leaving Bungie, so that one might be worth taking a look at. Or at least looking up the soundtrack for.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

A few days ago I picked up Greedfall to give me something to play alongside Control so I don't get bored of playing that too much. I was a bit apprehensive at first, since this game is made by a studio who is known for putting out clunker after clunker, but this one did pique my interest more than t...

Re: Need for Speed: Heat and the Conversation Around Racing Games

Not sure if it's really worth resurrecting this thread again, but this is pretty relevant I suppose. NFS Heat is coming out very soon and Giant Bomb did a Quick Look on it. 70EqTEm8wJU And it looks... fine? Better than the other entries this generation, and with a couple of potentially interesting i...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Now that I've moved on from Astral Chain I picked up Control and have been getting in to that. So far I'm liking it, but it was a bit of a bumpy start. At first I picked up the PC version, for the better frame rate of course, and also hoping that one day I might have a graphics card that can run all...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

I know how all the shortcuts works, I've got that all set up. The problem is that the feature simply doesn't work. I'll hit the share button and the pop-up menu will show up, but every option to save something is just greyed out. Pressing the hotkeys simply doesn't do anything. Sometimes it will sta...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

I've noticed recently that the capture features on the PS4 have become very unreliable. More often than not when I hit the share button to save a clip of even just a screenshot, it won't give me the option to save anything. Anyone else had this problem? Not seen any mention of it anywhere. Maybe som...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finally picked up Lucah: Born of a Dream and so far it's proven to be a pretty compelling experience. It's got a really unique feel to it that I like a lot. It has a sort of uncomfortable and even alienating feel to it, in a way that is clearly intentional though. Like it's trying to create this hos...

Re: Your most played game this year

I don't have exact numbers for most stuff, but I've got an idea I suppose. Most played has to be Forza Horizon 4. In the several hundred hours range I would guess. Still the game I fall back on when I don't feel like anything else, and the ongoing content updates keeps be coming back several times a...

A Kamiya-led Okami sequel just got sort of announced!?

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

You have to get in to the B rank bracket in any Ranked mode to unlock League. It's pretty easy to do, and doesn't take too long. It's a bit of a commitment, but it's nothing remotely out of reach of anyone who wants to do it. You only need to get to at least B- in any mode, and anyone who is halfway...
