Re: Explain your user name and avatar

My user name was gifted by my wife. Looking for a tag whilst setting up my Xbox ID whenever ago, my wife suggested 'reprobate' but that was actually taken so 'reprobategamer' was a natural progression (we have a habit me and her of misappropriating words like 'monster', 'terror', 'horror' etc and us...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Slowing climbing the ladder in the new Mortal Kombat 11 ranked league season. A lot of people where I am are playing Scorpion and Noob Saibot, which is kinda frustrating (in the same way that lower levels of ranked in Street Fighter 5 are almost all Ken players), but I’m now able to at least work o...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Gears 4 does liven up towards the end, and there’s some interesting lore stuff there too. It’s weird, there’s clearly a lot of decent lore in the setting (there’s a whole series of novels) but it never seems to quite get across what is there that isn’t just generic scifi pap. The studio have gone o...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Been taking advantage of Game pass to try out some of the bigger games I've missed of recent. Gears of War 4 - with the next installment due very soon, and Judgement one of many in pile of shame, I thought I'd give this one a go. It can be summed up as 'meh', at least the campaign. The characters ar...

Re: iOS and Android gaming

The issue with Archero is that you need to make your way through 50 levels in one sitting to open the next world ... I was making the presumption that as FFT would be more narrative driven so would be easier to chip away in the 5-10min blocks that mark the majority of my mobile gaming time.

Re: iOS and Android gaming

Well you've got much further than me! I think my record is level 41 or something! Seems like there might be more after level 50, like a new chapter but not sure yet. Yeah that flytrap enemy is a little cheap. It's pretty fun though, glad you enjoyed it! If you click on the first world, you can then...

Re: Destiny / Destiny 2

I signed up to the Destiny bandwagon a couple of years in (with Rise of Iron) My initial thought is that this is a good game that really needs to be played with friends to be properly enjoyed. Particularly with Destiny 2, the game is seemingly designed for those who can spend several hours a day eve...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Took the plunge and put down the whole £1 to upgrade my Xbox Live to the Ultimate Pass - so until November 2020, I have access to the whole Game Pass library - it's safe to assume that my already neglected PS3/Wii/X360 will be dust traps for the foreseeable future ... fair warning now that I'm a fir...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

One of the things I lament about the Trocadero closing is that they had that 8 player Daytona setup and it was always busy, (the other is the whole DDR scene they had there which was always fun to watch) That's a shame - when I worked in the centre of London, the Trocadero was great for somewhere t...

Re: iOS and Android gaming

Been playing a fantastic little game called Archero on my mobile telephone: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.habby.archero It's everything I love in a mobile game. Simple idea, simple controls, short game sessions. Basically it's a roguelike where you play an archer progressing thr...

Re: Dauntless (new F2P monster hunting)

The biggest thing I'm taking from Dauntless is that the dev team have got to invest in more servers - I've failed to log-in several evenings over the last week and only managed to get into the game 2 evenings. When I've actually got into a game, it seems perfectly capable. The game's lore provides a...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Following on the theme of card games, my Xbox Insider Hub alerted me to Minion Masters It's a card game mixed with tower assault. You preselect your deck from owed cards (ad you can have 18 decks available to choose) and these correspond in-game to a summoned minion card which then becomes 'alive' a...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Taking a break from my normal grind/loot and put on recent games with gold title Death Squared The feel is Aperture Science by way of the IT Crowd, at least that's what it's going for. The concept is fine - control two AI cubes as they manoeuvre through a series of block puzzles to reach their targe...

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

I was able to attend Ubisoft UK's launch party for this last night, held at a new videogame/esports bar in Shoreditch (Platform, www.platformexperience.com ) What we saw looks very interesting. It's a continuation of the story from Wildlands, though it's a new adventure for returning player characte...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Just interjecting to say that whilst Overcooked is playable with one person (you get cooks you can swop between), it really needs to be played with other people to be properly enjoyed - a wonderful return to couch co-op Thanks for that. Unfortunately I think one player is as far as I'll get with a ...

Glad to have seen what all the fuss was about though, and another PS+ gem because I’d have never played it otherwise. Looking forward to trying Overcooked now!
