Re: Videogame News

Is it just me that thinks the FFVII remake looks absolutely ghastly? I mean, if their goal was to surgically remove every single ounce of charm that the original had, then they have completely succeeded. Simply put, characters that are that outlandish and stylised (sporting crazy spiked hair and wi...

Re: All things Fallout

I think it's my least favourite of the post Morrowind games from Bethesda. (Morrowind being the last one before they locked into their current formula). Could you elaborate on that ? Maybe its just my memory is failing, or i just didnt get it but im not sure what was the big switch between Morrowin...

Re: Volume Five podcast listing

It feels wierd that with all those amazing games you 'll cover, the one im looking forward to the most is Catherine.

Re: Bloodborne

I was never a Souls fan, especially after that slap in the face PC-port Dark Souls was. But looking at both more offensive combat and very interesting setting im starting to reconsider my stance on "never buy anything from them" ;) I know, I know, Im a spineless :P So i wanted to ask you guys, are t...

Re: Games Completed 2015

I went through my steam "last played" from this year and was ashamed on how many games i've abandoned. Games i finished was Witcher 3, Tales from the Borderlands, Valiant hearts, Far Cry 4, Assassins Creed Unity, The Beginners Guide, Final Fantasy XIII But in my defense i played a lot of "infinite" ...

Re: All things Assassin's Creed

I want to share with you my thoughts about AC Syndicate. Bear in mind that my experience with Unity was actually pretty good. I haven’t encountered many bugs and glitches, and was actually impressed with native support for my unusual 21:9 monitor. So I'll probably wont be comparing Syndicate to Unit...

Re: All things The Witcher

I wonder if Velen/Temeria is suppose to be a microcosm of Eastern Europe after World War 2 - devastated not just by war but ongoing tensions between east and west, occupied by the Soviets. Hmm i dont think so. Witcher, and Sapkowski's books in general have very heavy 14-16 century influence, and it...

Re: Our next podcast recording (12.12.15): Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

I wont repeat things that many people before me said though i want to add two things. Good. Its pretty obvious that nemesis system was one of main games selling point. But what really made me say "oh wow" was when i realised how well it fitted world in general. I remember playing a mission when i ha...

Re: All things The Witcher

Fun fact, Hearts of Stone takes a lot of inspiration from old polish folk tale about nobleman by the name Twardowski. You can read a little bit about it on wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pan_Twardowski . But it can spoil some of story main ideas, symbolism or character roles so its better to do ...

What little time i had i split between Fallout 4 (though im kinda bored with it after 70 hours), Just Cause 3 (it has a lot of framerate issues for me, so ill probably wait for patches) Elite Dangerous (love that one) a...
