Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Currently going through Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death again. It's a pretty fun game, but it's clearly not very polished. It's one of those games that makes up for its flaws through sheer enthusiasm though, so it's hard to hold its problems against it too hard. It's aping the (old) God of War g...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I played the demo for Cris Tales that is on GOG right now. I wasn't a fan of it, but I can see it being really appealing to some people. It's an indie turn-based RPG with a very fairy tale/storybook aesthetic to it, and a time travel conceit to it. The art is very nice, with a sort of pop-up book lo...

Re: What's Out This Week?

It launched on Apple Arcade a while back, so it’s not that new to fans of the series I guess. That's definitely part of it, but that release was only part of the game, branded as being the first "episode". Not sure how much of the game that was, it sounds like perhaps it was about half of it. Now t...

Re: What's Out This Week?

Shantae and the Seven Sirens came out the other day, but it seems to have not gathered any attention at all. I've seen basically no mention of it.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

The other day I decided to dig out the 360 again and have a mess around with that. Main thing I've been playing is El Shaddai . I've been wanting to revisit this one again for a while, and I actually gave it a go at the start of the year, but stopped playing before long as I found it had an awful gl...

Re: Videogame News

Some new information has shown up for the Nier Re[in]carnation (the mobile game that was announced a while back). Turns out the scenario will not be written by Yoko Taro, but it will be written by some of the usual Nier writing team, and Taro will have some level of oversight to tie it all together....

Re: What's Out This Week?

That's been rumoured to be the case for the Metroid Prime Trilogy for years now. It's supposedly been ready to go for ages. My theory was that they were waiting until Prime 4 was closer to get people interested in the series again, but since that got pushed way back to restart development, they push...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

The PSP version of the game was really impressive, technically, looked really nice, but it was such a missed opportunity with such a bare bones release. No career mode, nothing really aside from single races. Seemed more of a tech demo than anything. Didn't that version have an infamously troubled ...

Re: What's Out This Week?

If you own the original version of Mafia 2 or 3 you get an upgrade to the Definitive Edition for free. Also apparently when the remake of 1 comes out, owning either of the others will give you a discount on that too. It seems both versions are simply just ports/DLC bundles. No change in the games th...

Re: Ghost of Tsushima

I quite liked that demo in general. Some stuff is really appealing, but other stuff I'm still unsure on. The visual design and world look great. That looks like a world I want to poke around in and take in the atmosphere. I also really like the emphasis on making navigation feel natural, particularl...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

There are still some racing games that do that full on customisation aspect well. Forza Horizon 4 has all the spoilers, rims and body kits you could wish for. It just hides a lot of it deep in menus you may not venture into. Does it have sliders though, like in those old PS2 racers? The Forza games...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Was you a fan of the Bayonetta games? I had a similar problem with them in that I just found everything happening on the screen too chaotic and struggled to see what moves I was doing, where enemies were and where Bayonetta was. In comparison I got on with the Ninja Theory DmC game as I thought the...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been lucky enough to be given a free copy of The Wonderful 101 Remastered , as some people are giving away their bonus codes that Kickstarter backers were given to make up for the delay of the physical versions being shipped out. I do own the original Wii U version as well, but I never really g...
