Re: Which Studios Should Acquire Dormant IP?

If you're really interested in giving the franchise a try, then you don't have to wait for a new hypothetical sequel which is probably not going to come. If you have either an original Xbox or an Xbox 360 at your disposal, then you have access to Burnout 3: Takedown and Burnout Revenge to very affo...

Re: Which Studios Should Acquire Dormant IP?

Also in the never-gonna-happen pile, Rare going back to Nintendo! That's stretching the theme of this thread considerably though... Funny you mention that, because my ideal studio getting an IP would be a case of history repeating itself. Since many of the staff at Playtonic worked on the first two...

Re: Games completed 2016

Last night I finished Abzu and that was the most stunning final act of a game I have ever played, an incredible contrast to the disappointment of Arkham Asylum's silly Joker monster. In fact, I would say the whole last third of the game was just a magical experience. Normally, I would be skeptical o...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I think what really breaks your spirit is that even if you manage to clear the levels, there's the nagging thought that sooner or later you'll have to do it all again , but next time also grab all three stars.... :x First off, well done for getting to Special World 8! I believe you when you say it ...

Re: Your Favorite Boss Fights!

Here are a few from the top of my head that I remember fondly. The running man from stage 3 from Rez. I love this boss so much, the pumping music as you chase down this man made from blocks and slowly whittle him down is a highlight from a game that is one big highlight for me. Star Dream from Kirby...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

After finishing Arkham Asylum, I figured I would play a nice short game as a cleanser before going into City. I hopped onto the Playstation store and seen Abzû, a game which has intrigued me ever since I have seen trailers for it. I am completely fascinated by the ocean, despite being scared of wate...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Ha, yeah. Ironically (after initially complaining about the lack of challenge) I think I'm about ready to give up on 3D Land. I breezed through it until I reached Special World 7. The levels where you're being chased by the shadow purple guy AND it repeatedly throws obstacles (especially whomps and...

Re: Games completed 2016

So I finally finished Arkham Asylum yesterday. And that was a very underwhelming final boss battle; roided up Joker, ugh no. He looked ridiculous and was stupidly easy (I had WAY more trouble with his Titan injected henchmen just before this final fight, died nearly 7-8 times on them!). The final en...

Re: Games completed 2016

Great post. I'll have to pick it up. It sounds fantastic. Oh definitely, if you are into platformers/unique experiences then it is a must buy for the system. To not only be playing a non Mario 3D platformer in this generation which in itself is a lovely thing to see, but one with such a unique prem...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm glad you're enjoying those particular titles. A while ago I picked up Arkham Origins on PS3 for very, very cheap, and after giving it a fair shot I kinda stopped playing it. To put a positive spin on it, it made me appreciate the first two Arkham games a lot more. :lol: Ha, thanks! Yeah, I have...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

So I am a reasonably big fan of Batman but have never played the Arkham games. So I bought the Return to Arkham collection which has the first two games and am working through Asylum now. And I have to say, I should have checked this out a long time ago. Been loving it so far. The gameplay really ma...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm onto the extra levels now, and yeah - this is much more to my taste! I didn't realise that there was so much game after beating the final boss. I'm not sure why I didn't persevere with it before - I think I'd just got a bit bored with the lack of challenge at that point. But yeah - should have ...

Re: Games completed 2016

So a few days ago, I finished Tearaway Unfolded on the PS4 and I have to say that I have not felt such a sense of childlike wonder from a game in years. The fact that you can decorate characters and parts of the world gave this title a sense of gleeful playfulness throughout. This game breaks the fo...

Re: Games completed 2016

I was flat sitting for my mate when I was in China. It was a sweltering summer and I sat on the floor in my boxers eating spicy breakfast noodles and playing Prime Evolution and then a little bird, very close to the end, flew in through the window and shat all over the place. I don't know how it go...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Since I have become way more of a handheld gamer in the last couple of years, I quite like the idea of it being a hybrid of portable and home console. Will this mean they are going to drop the 3DS and handheld gaming in general? Because if so, then this could free up a lot of resources for first and...

Unique setting, interesting system where your stats are affected depending on what clothes are most fashionable in certain districts and a completely unique battle system that is bewildering at first but becomes really fun...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

As I always say as a caveat, there are now over 1400 games (about 28 years' worth!) on the long-list and we need to have enough people on the team who want to podcast about any particular one, so please no-one hold their breath while waiting for a particular show. Also, multiple mentions/nomination...

So finally got around to purchasing a PS4 today with a copy of Tearaway Unfolded and wow, have I got an excellent first impression from this console. I should have played this a long time ago! This is exactly the kind of stuff HD should be used for, this game looks jaw droppingly beautiful. It reall...

Good news, I requested the Worms series around two pages ago and Leon himself replied to say: Worms (series) Has crossed my mind on several occasions but hasn't appeared on the list until now.
