Re: Your first four PS2 games

Outside of Pc gaming, I wonder if the ps2 has the largest library of any console? Certainly one of the most diverse. I’m fairly certain that during looking at library numbers in the past it had easily the largest console game number. Considerably over 1000 titles, I’m pretty sure games were still b...

Re: Games Completed 2020

I got the platinum trophy on Mortal Kombat (2011) a week or so ago. That sure felt good.

Hitman (2016) I've done 4 times (best game of recent years) and a number of short games.

Monster Energy Supercross (a PS+ game last month) was a lot of fun.

Re: Your first four PS2 games

Not owned but played on a friend's before I got my own. Timesplitters SSX Then the first I owned was Tony Hawk's 3. I remember it being the only game I got that Christmas along with the console. After that I really can't remember what was next but I do remember playing Medal of Honor: Frontline ove...

Re: Your first four PS2 games

Picked up my PS2 in the evening on launch day (around November time in the UK) with Tekken Tag Tournament & Ridge Racer V I think. What did I get after that?... maybe Silent Scope(?) and TimeSplitters. Sold all my old games and consoles to get the PS2 and didn't really regret it. Gran Turismo 3,...

Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake

I just finished playing the demo again tonight (well, until it crashed on the boss fight and reset the game). Playing it again made me think about a few things. There aren't any random battles in the demo which makes me think difficulty might be set throughout the game with only shop items and pick ...

Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake

I think my only concerns now are going to be how long it is, and then how long until we see part 2... Pay special attention to how it handles battle music during the timed escape, it’s doing something pretty clever. The game has been hyped and delayed for many years so hopefully there won't be a bi...

Final Fantasy VII Remake

After a very, very long wait, Final Fantasy VII - 'the remake' has finally arrived in a playable form. I spent roughly an hour on the demo this morning and I honestly don't think I've ever seen, heard or played anything as impressive. Every detail is stunning, the characters all have great voice act...

Re: Virginia - Cane and Rinse 352

Excellent! I'm very pleased to have found an old C&R for this. I'm curious what the team and contributors have to say about this one. An interesting game for discussion I'm sure. I played the game at the weekend and didn't really know what to make of it. The way of telling the whole story purely...

Re: The Guardian's Top 50 games of the century

Astonished that you’d never heard of Singstar. I get not being into it (I’ve never owned one), but it was all over the place from 2004-2011 or so, and is still going today. It was even autoinstalled on PS3 for a while. Upwards of 16 million sales, dozens of versions, it was hard to avoid for a whil...

Re: The Shenmue trilogy

Absolutely. The games are full of design choices and gameplay mechanics that in this day and age just don't hold up, and I can completely see why someone coming to the games now would have a tough time accepting them. But of almost any game I've ever played, Shenmue has the ability to cast a weird ...

Re: Our next podcast recording (5.10.19) - 390: Final Fantasy XIII

I went into Final Fantasy XIII not expecting it to be all that great having picked it up fairly cheap on eBay not long after launch and hearing a lot of negative things about the game. Not long into the adventure I decided to skip all the cut scenes and just go with the gameplay. I've fully complete...

Re: The Guardian's Top 50 games of the century

Played only 16/50.

5 were almost perfect games for me. Dead Space, Forza Horizon, Burnout 3, Call of Duty 4 and Res 4.

Halo, Gears 2, Assassin's Creed II, Battlefield 1942 and Fortnite wouldn't be in my top 1000 but that's me.

Re: Resident Evil 4 (Biohazard 4) - Cane and Rinse 336

Thank you, stranger! I will have a listen to that first Res 4 show tomorrow.

I've never seen the show list in full from the beginning. The earliest ones I've listened to then are Prince of Persia (2008) and Metal Gear Solid 2.

Cheers.

Re: Resident Evil 4 (Biohazard 4) - Cane and Rinse 336

Great show on Res 4 guys. Really good. I never played the game back in the day, as like many others my opinion was that it changed things up too much and just wasn't Resident Evil anymore. After finally playing it recently on Xbox One I realised how stupid I was not to experience the game sooner. I ...

Abzu (PS4/XB1/PC/Steam)

Quite a short, casual and enjoyable experience this one (on consoles anyway, Win 10 version has a lot of bugs and crashing issues).

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

Revisiting LittleBigPlanet 2 on PS3 for a few hours yesterday I was reminded of it's excellent soundtrack.

This is Disco Divertimento by the Daniel Pemberton Orchestra.

It shows how technology has advanced.

Sadly though it's Microsoft trying to kill the used game market and push people into Game Pass and to buy games from the overpriced digital store.
