Re: Whatcha Been Listening To?

Since the final Splatfest for Splatoon 2 happened recently, I was reminded that the voice actress for Pearl is actually in a rock band, so I went to listen to their stuff again, and it's pretty good.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

More Bioshock Infinite . I've gotten to the bit where you're trying to track down the gunsmith, and you do the first hop between different universes. After that stellar start, it's starting to drag a bit. Even on my first run I felt like this spot was a bit of a slog though, so this isn't exactly ne...

Re: What's Out This Week?

I've been hearing some very positive rumblings about Lucah: Born of a Dream for a long time. It seems like something worth taking a look at, but I'm not too sure on it myself. Supposedly it covers some very unique topics, and has some interesting gameplay ideas too. It has a very striking look to it...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Just a little update on the Darksiders 3 DLC. I beat The Crucible, several times in fact. It's a pretty rewarding challenge that lets the combat shine quite well. It lead me to come to something of a conclusion about my feelings on the combat in general, and the whole issue of the Classic Mode. Befo...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Now I'm on to the final leg of replaying this series, with Bioshock Infinite . Even though I've always been a fan of this game, I've always had big criticisms too. And over the years it feels like general opinions on it have skewed more negative too. But so far I'm really enjoying this playthrough. ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Just finished off the Minerva's Den DLC for Bioshock 2 , and it was pretty great. I think my impression of it now is a bit more positive than it was previously, but probably not by much. I did like it before after all. While I used to think of it as being sort of a contracted version of the main gam...

Re: Game that defines the console?

I have a feeling while some of these will be easy to pick, others might be surprisingly tricky. Already some interesting choices in this thread. In order of when I first got them, as far as I remember anyway. GBC: Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal My first ever console. Started off with Yellow, which was ...

Re: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

It's also kind of inconvenient to use a horse, since you need to go to a stable each time you want one, and make sure you never stray too far from your horse so you can call them back to you. And then the DLC made the whole thing somewhat redundant by letting you summon a magical motorbike no matter...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Played a bit more of Judgment , in to the second chapter now, and it definitely does pick up quickly. This is the point when you start opening up the major side activities, with the side-case investigations and the drone racing. The former so far has proven to be very funny and amusing, and this see...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Transformers: Devastation is excellent. It gets a lot easier to navigate after the earlier levels. It gets far more linear once you get past the starting levels in the city. Combat is of course great, and it has a really good soundtrack, and amusingly cheesy voice acting. I don't have any affinity f...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

After being a bit apprehensive in the lead up to release, I decided to pull the trigger on Judgment after seeing that it mostly is more or less another Yakuza game, just with a bit of a spin on the formula. I have to say though, the opening hours are not thrilling me. Most of my worries have turned ...

Re: Subscription Services - a brave new world?

Stadia already has an exclusive, that happens to be something I'm a bit miffed about too. A game called Gylt, which looks like something of a cross between Little Nightmares and Silent Hill. It's from Tequila Works, who also made Rime, which I'm a big fan of, so I was looking forward to see what tha...

Re: Subscription Services - a brave new world?

Subscription models for games ("Netflix of games") is not something that interests me, I don't like it, I don't feel connected to games and I would get overwhelmed with the choice leading to playing nothing properly. It's like this with PS Plus - I have SO many Plus games in my library untouched. P...

Re: Dragon's Dogma

Maybe you would have a better time with a different class. The Fighter class definitely feel like they're making an impact, and you have a shield to block and parry with too. There's a really good variety with the R1/L1 moves as well. Lots of different sword attacks that do different things, like a ...

Re: Dragon's Dogma

The combat feels very mashy and weightless, I really can't understand this perspective at all. One of the biggest reasons this game gets praised so much is because it's so good at that sort of thing. There's loads of hit-pause and it has really chunky sound design. It's one of the best in the genre...

20/06 - Bioshock So after wrestling with the awful remaster, I switched over to the original version instead. Perhaps you already mentioned, and I've heard not great things about the remaster, but what caused you to go back to the original (I've only played the original as well)? I talk about it he...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I decided to carry on with Bioshock 2 instead of Infinite after all. I felt like keeping the ball rolling after finishing the first game, but Infinite was no longer on sale, so this game it is. This game is an odd one. Playing through the previous game reminded me of how this one is pretty much mech...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Just finished off the last of the content in the Lego DLC for Forza Horizon 4 , bringing me back up to 100% achievement score yet again. Like the main game, there's actually another finale race at the end, so the "end" I previously reached was not in fact that. Although the second final race is just...
