Re: Volume Nine - a couple of video teasers

Besides, it will probably take a week to get back up to speed on the controls ;)

Re: Games Completed 2020

@Alex - yes, something like that, and the scene is slightly animated (characters wave their arms, traffic moves) and lightly interactive (you can click on shutters or blinds to open them and reveal things). There are also lots of little details to watch out for as Clippa mentions - eg see the tent i...

Re: Death Stranding

Thanks guys. Decided not to start it last night as I have a touch of the Christmas Lurgy and I feel the game could go either way for me. Best be in good form for it.

Re: Death Stranding

If it’s not a stupid question, what would people say is the optimal play-session length for this? Don’t sit down with it for less than two hours or whatever?

I’m wary of getting caught in 30 min cutscenes, between save points etc. Can you save anywhere or only at a delivery’s end?

Ta.

Four action games down. A change of pace next, maybe?

Re: Games Completed 2020

Nice one, Colin.

Hidden Folks (PC)

Ehhh, I can see the appeal and thought I might like it, but it didn't do it for me I'm afraid. I used a guide for the final level just to get it over with.

Still, 2.47 on Steam, can't complain.

Re: 2020 Hype Thread

I’m waiting hard for Slay the Spire on iOS - I see it’s made a lot of Games of the Decade lists, *Stanshall*. :D I know I’m going to be disappointed by Mount & Blade: Bannerlord - I suspect it’s going to be 95% the same as the two previous entries - but I’m kinda duty-bound to buy it on release day.

Don't worry, she's been living on a diet of 1-3 boiled eggs per day, so she's a tough old bird. :lol:

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

The Stillness of the Wind (Gamepass for PC) is about an old woman living in the high desert who has a couple of goats and chickens, and whose family have all left home. As the days pass, she has to survive by making cheese, planting crops, collecting eggs, and bartering with a peddler who comes by ...

I'm surprised Tetris 99 didn't feature more heavily - it seemed to burn brightly earlier in the year.

When you write your autobiography for 2011-2014, you can call it Stanshall: The Wilderness Years. ;)

@Jon - yeah that could be your project for 2020, buy a PS3 and do the Demon’s platinum. Demon’s knocks Dark into a cocked hat so I guarantee a good time :D

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Thanks for the encouraging words! I just beat the second last level and now it is only Metamorphosis left. Gets really tough 60 lines in but I think victory is very close. I had the same issue - you can do it! In fact, when I finally beat the last level on the lowest setting, I then blazed through ...

Re: Your Games of the Decade

Boy, if I'd had the gaming taste I have now, back in 2010, there would have been very little for me! Interesting looking through the years though - XBLA! The Ouya! 2010 - Deadly Premonition 2011 - Dark Souls 2012 - Hotline Miami (but most likely OOTP13 if that was the year I started playing it) 2013...

Re: Videogame Deals

That Epic sale is ... epic. You claim a free game, get a 10 (your currency) voucher to apply to another game. When you spend that you get another 10 (your currency) voucher, and so on. Remember you can keep your voucher to use later next year on the game of your choice, it doesn't have to be in this...

Re: 2019 in Gaming and your Game of the Year

It doesn't look like I'm going to finish anything else this year - I'm currently trapped in a loop of Out of the Park Baseball, and Field of Glory: Empires, which are both ongoing and never ending - so I think I'll do a quick personal review. Nominations below, with the winning game in bold: Best Ad...
