Re: iOS and Android gaming

reviving this thread as I'm looking for some recommendations for Android games. I'm specifically looking for games that I can play in short, easily interruptible (and resumable!) sessions, that will work on a phone (samsung J5 if it matters) and which work offline. As this may also be on public tran...

Re: All things Achievements, Trophies, Meta

If anyone wants to look at their achievements or trophies success in 2018 in comparison to the diehards (and probably get thoroughly depressed like me), we've just set up our 2018 leaderboards: TrueAchievements 2018 Leaderboards TrueTrophies 2018 Leaderboards i always find this to be interesting re...

Re: Games Completed 2019

Jan 1st - Lego Marvel Avengers Technically this was a yesterday post - just that whole having to work thing getting in the way ... This was a 100% completion of a game that I've been playing on and off (often with a daughter) since christmas 2017. I think I may go on record to say that this is the g...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Something I took to doing a few years ago was recording what games I was playing, on which console and whether I completed it (whether that is 'just' the story or 100%). It was based on a Kotaku article from early 2016 and now means I have three years of gaming history. it can all be found on my blo...

Re: All things Achievements, Trophies, Meta

Interesting thread. I always think of myself as someone who has some interest in achievement hunting but isn't a true hunter - then Xbox send through my year in review and my 46K GS, which I view as reasonable, appears to put me in the top 1% ... a timely reminder on differing points of view, I gues...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Currently I'm playing on and off the following (and have been for most of this year): Destiny 2 ; The Division ; Battlefield 1 ; Neverwinter ; Elder Scrolls Online ; GTA V Online (all on X...

Re: Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt

Finally managed to find a couple of hours to head over to the V&A to check this exhibit out. The openiing Design section is wonderful - snippets of design docs and final footage from the likes of The Last of Us and Bloodbourne to smaller titles like Kentucky Route Zero . All of it is fascinating to ...

Re: Our next Resident Evil podcast recording (16.11.18) - 346: Resident Evil 6 (Biohazard 6)

After the Resident Evil 5 podcast got my and my wife replaying that game again recently, it was natural to move onto Resident Evil 6. I honestly don't know what to say about this game as it really is such a melange of influences, ideas, lore, focus group notes, random ideas and even a kitchen sink (...

Re: Our next Resident Evil podcast recording (13.10.18) - 341: Resident Evil 5 (Biohazard 5)

When Resident Evil 5 was released, both my partner and myself were firm fans of the franchise. This was an early day purchase for us and it frankly did everything it needed to - it brought new action to a series we always enjoyed playing, delved a little more into the lore, provided a new location a...

Re: Our next Resident Evil podcast recording (8.9.18) - 336: Resident Evil 4 (Biohazard 4)

That head-shotting later enemies was as likely to bring forth a bio-mutant as kill an enemy made for an interesting but ultimately frustating dynamic. Three word review: Headshots mean less I'm not trying to be rude to ReprobateGamer, but in the interest of avoiding inaccuracies during the recordin...

Re: Our next Resident Evil podcast recording (8.9.18) - 336: Resident Evil 4 (Biohazard 4)

Resident Evil 4 marks an obvious point where the atmosphere of survival horror firmly moves over to survival action. It's a game I like but not a game I love - the switch in style didn't bother me but there were a few niggles that irked me even then. The controls were fine at the time, though i susp...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

I was watching a missed broadcast on Twitch with the caster playing Murder Trivia Party and I was reminded how good the music is for the last section in that game.

Re: 330: Resident Evil Zero (Biohazard 0)

you know I had never released that RE:Remake was released before RE:0 Zero I believe was in development for the N64 first then had to be remade for the Gamecube which I imagine would impact on the construction of the game itself and would explain some of your concerns. We know that Rebecca ultimatel...

Re: 344: Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

Double Dash was the first Mario Kart I owned - at the time of writing in July 2018, it remains the only Mario Kart I've owned. The character swop mechanic was a great addition to kart racers, and my choice became the very aggressive Red Koopa/Baby Bowser combo on Waluigi's cart ... anyone playing ag...

Re: 330: Resident Evil Zero (Biohazard 0)

The main thing I remember about Resident Evil Zero was that this was the point that I truly realised quite how in love with the franchise my then girlfriend was.

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

Just putting a shout out for this piece of music ... from a Lego game of all places. This is a truly epic piece of music for a truly epic final sequence from the game Lego City: Undercover - and who would have thought you would get something like this from a kids game. The whole soundtrack riffs fro...
