Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I love the first one, like the second one, though I probably haven't played the second one since about 2004/5.

Haven't played Child of Light but now that you've made that comparison, I might try and track it down!

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

If you're already shortlisting for next year, are you looking at doing another series again?

Is it going to become a staple to do all the games in one series every year?

Can I nominate the Shin Megami Tensei series?

Re: All things Yakuza (Ryū ga Gotoku)

I found for boss fights the Rush and Beast modes were way more effective that normal blue one. Alternating between the two as required served me well enough never to die towards the end of the game once. Beast (the yellow one) is quite useful in Kiwami, especially against Majima later in the game w...

Make sure you level up! The techniques will help you in the boss fights.

Use Rush for Shimano, he is a huge pain in the butt!

Re: All things Yakuza (Ryū ga Gotoku)

Very frustrating time on Yakuza Kiwami last night. I got to a part where I'm escaping in a car having to shoot trucks and motorbikes in pursuit, and failed three times. Its really long, and there are no checkpoints. The worst part is that I hadn't saved it a while and there's no auto save, so I ant...

Making me scared, Simon! I've got the o.g. Xbox version, which - I heard - CAN actually be completed.
I had almost no problems with the OG Xbox version. I think it crashed once on me.

It runs quite well and is worth getting if you have no other options or you prefer playing on consoles.

Re: No Man's Sky

Tried my old save on PS4. The frame rate was abysmal, and I'm usually fine with 30fps.

If they patch it and make it more stable, I'll be willing to try it again.

Re: Our next Resident Evil podcast recording (29.7.18) - 330: Resident Evil Zero (Biohazard 0)

To me, RE0 is the last true RE game until the Revelations games came out for PS3/360. I think most of the complaints about the monsters are valid but I did like the disparity between Billy and Rebecca. Billy is your kind of stock action hero that you would see in a lot of games of the time, and Rebe...

Re: Octopath Traveler

The point stands that due to the structure of the game, in which each of the eight characters can be recruited (or not) in any order, the eight stories aren't really connected and there is no real interaction or dialogue between the eight characters that you might reasonably expect from a FF style ...

We don't pick on genres, platforms or pretty much anything here at Cane and Rinse and with the current dedication to playing the entire numbered series of Final Fantasy games with our podcasts I think you'll find that we take each and every game and judge it fairly and honestly.

Re: Octopath Traveler

ThirdDrawing, as I said above, it is absolutely not the reviewer’s choice when the review is published. Please believe me when I tell you that 99% of reviewers would much rather have adequate time to play a game properly and consider their experience before committing words. Unfortunately the reali...

Re: 349: Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (Biohazard 7: Resident Evil)

Well, at the risk of derailing the thread I'll ask whether you considered the original Resident Evil games scary? I mean they weren't really, were they. And I guess horror is as subjective as comedy, or taste in music. I found the demo at least of Resi7 to be scary enough. I'm certainly not trying ...

Re: Octopath Traveler

It’s not really laziness for the most part, it’s simply incredibly rare that a reviewer will have a copy of a game far enough ahead of time - or be given enough time to complete an intensive game - before publishing/embargo deadline. The demand for day one reviews from PRs and public is at least as...

Re: Octopath Traveler

I almost cancelled my preorder after reading the Kotaku review, which was overwhelmingly negative - the main criticisms being that the game is repetitive and grind-heavy, but also that there is no overall sweeping story to the game - the 8 characters all have entirely separate storylines and there ...
