Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm ripping and tearing my way through Doom Eternal right now, and so far I'm liking it a lot, but not without caveats. Essentially, it is basically Doom 2016, but more. Not just in the sense of being very similar to the first, but in a way that every part of the game has been fleshed out and stuff ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Since GDC got cancelled due to coronavirus, a bunch of the indie developers who were planning on showing their game demos there instead got together to release them on Steam instead for everyone to try. You can find them all listed here. So I tried a couple, so here's my thoughts. Firstly, Raji: An ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I decided to have another stab at Mirror's Edge Catalyst , since it sprung up in my mind again recently. I was always really disappointed with not liking it before, so wanted to give it another chance. This time I've managed to stick with it, and I'm already most of the way through. I was planning o...

Re: Games Completed 2020

Personally I struggle to think of anything particularly positive about the Halo 5 campaign. I thought pretty much all of it was quite awful. The first half has you running around dull grey box levels, chasing after Master Chief picking up the pieces of his much more interesting sounding adventure, w...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've heard so much about how the sneaky archer is supposed to break Skyrim/TES so much, but honestly when I tried it I didn't like it at all. Sure you can get some crazy damage multipliers, but it's a very unfun way to play. It's so slow creeping around trying not to get seen, and just picking off e...

Re: Ghost of Tsushima

I'm pretty interested in the game. It looks visually amazing and the setting is really appealing. From what we've seen, the gameplay looks pretty good too, albeit perhaps not the deepest. But the extent of those systems is still a bit of a mystery, so it's hard to tell what's really going on there. ...

Re: What's Out This Week?

I hope Toukiden 2 comes out over here. It looks pretty good. Not had a chance to play the original, but that one seems cool as well. But this second one seems to be adding in something pretty distinctive for the Hunter-like genre. Fully open world. I want to see how that works out. You probably don...

03/03 - Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition (Hard/Dante/Free Style) I've never played a single Devil May Cry game. Complete gaming blindspot for me, and it's strange as I've not got an aversion to anything about it particularly. In fact it's always seemed pretty up my street! I really like the look of...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Been playing a bit of Inner Space that is currently free on the Epic store. I usually don't play like 99% of these games that given away on various services that I end up collecting, but I was actually somewhat excited to try this one out as I've had my eye on it recently. I like the idea of a calmi...

Re: Games Completed 2020

Looking forward to playing 3, 4 and 5 soon as they hit sale prices - do these new versions offer much over the PS3 originals? I know there is content restored that was in the original Japanese release cut from the worldwide one, but did you happen to notice how much? Is it limited to side stories? ...

Re: Videogame News

Isn't that game based on some indie game that was on Kickstarter years ago? I think the devs got absorbed by Sumo at some point and changed the game quite a bit. I think I remember it originally had some weapon mechanics. Anyway, it looks very cool. Absolutely starved for games like that these days,...

Re: Shadow of the Colossus (2018)

Just listened to the pod. Good episode. I was actually expecting it to be a bit more negative, with people split on the graphical update, going by what the discourse around this version seems to have been generally, from what I've heard anyway. I actually really wanted to contribute to this one, and...

Re: Games Completed 2020

While most enemy types and bosses are very good, there are a few that are big misfires. Quick question if you don't mind. As far as enemy design goes, what do you think about the various Damned Chess Pieces? I know they're very divisive, a lot of folks dislike them and find them hard to read, etc.....
