Re: I am going to clear my backlog and try and keep a record here

I'm sure you know but Superhot is very short. Rage 2 is short for an open worlder - 10 to 12 hours if you mainline it, I reckon. The Walking Dead series is a good one too - the individual episodes are generally short enough to play in a single gaming session, you feel like you're making progress wit...

Epic Shelf totally makes sense now! :lol:

That's so neat and tidy! I'd be ushering my farts out of there. Everyone's got so much stuff! My physical 'collection' is even more pathetic than yours, Clippa. :D https://i.imgur.com/82NOX6N.jpg Absolutely no idea why I'm holding onto Vanquish there.

Re: I am going to clear my backlog and try and keep a record here

Yeah, as far as I can tell, there is several years of gaming here. :) Have you thought about an approach? Are you gonna try and mix quick wins/short games with longer games, or try and knock them off at the beginning? Should you play more recent games first - eg I think I'd rather play the recent St...

Re: I am going to clear my backlog and try and keep a record here.

Relatively small??!?! Can’t you prune that list a bit - e.g. do you really need to play Sleeping Dogs at this point?

Trying to be helpful here :D

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I couldn't get to grips with the control scheme in Lonely Mountains Downhill - looking at it side on but having to steer as if I was on the bike. I admit I only gave it 5 mins though! I've been playing Rage 2 . I'm not sure I'll finish it, so I'll pop it in here. It's decent, if a bit old-fashioned ...

Darkest Dungeon Tablet Edition seems to be half off (5.5 EUR), at least on iOS right now, for a jolly good time.

Re: 2019 in Gaming and your Game of the Year

I still think of having a backlog even with this, as in I know what games I want to play, and they're on my backlog. Same way I always have a list of movies in my head (well OK, quite literally written down on my phone, actually) but don't consider Netflix entire catalogue as part of my backlog. Ye...

Re: 2019 in Gaming and your Game of the Year

But the way I look at it is that backlogs no longer exist under this model so that's a small positive. That's technically correct, but a slightly less charitable way of looking at it is that the overwhelming "choice" of the platform simply devalues everything and that most consumers don't feel any ...

Yeah I was following Dom's posts with interest too; doubtful whether I'll ever get it but good to see some first-hand experience!

Re: 2019 in Gaming and your Game of the Year

I meant to post something myself here but got overtaken by events so I'll get to that later at some time. The problem with stuff like Gamepass is it creates essentially the same problem I have with Netflix and amazon prime in that there's so much to watch and a backlog forms so quickly its really ov...

2019 in Gaming and your Game of the Year

Apologies if I’m jumping the gun on this one, but I thought it’d be good to have a thread to address the above over the next month or so. Jot down any thoughts on 2019 and your candidates for game of the year.

It occurs to me that we might need a thread to do this for the decade too :P

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Play the game ‘Universal Paperclip’ if you want to see an interesting take on where AI research could go. That’s very interesting actually! I only had ten mins on it so far so I haven’t seen where the ‘AI’ side of things kicks in, but even from an optimization/clicker point of view it’s kind of int...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I read a pretty good sci fi series a few years ago where humanity was at each other's throats, as usual, and an unlikely saviour emerged in the form of a rogue AI which had evolved from online shopping algorithms. Because it basically wanted to sell more shit, it was intervening in nuclear flashpoin...

I've been playing Train Sim World 2020 and really enjoying it. Did you turn 40 during the week or something? :lol: I've made a couple of heart hearted attempts at getting into this, but to no avail. Some day.... In the meantime, another season of OOTP Baseball '20 is in the books, and I've managed ...
