Re: Detroit: Become Human

Nice to see others excited about the release. Unfortunately I can't afford to buy another PS4 and the game right but I will be getting it as soon as I can. I checked the reviews this morning and as expected many were just going to hate Cage's work regardless but gamers who have actually played it se...

Re: Detroit: Become Human

So I would never normally pre-order a Quantic Dream title as I've not had the best time with several Cage games. However I'm looking at a new... financial venture / job of sorts where I might need to pick up more PS4 exclusives at launch and basically play them immediately. I played the demo and ac...

Detroit: Become Human

Ok, I've been waiting for and following this game ever since that Kara trailer thingy appeared on YouTube many years ago. I'm a huge fan of David Cage and his work and Heavy Rain is possibly the most memorable game I've ever played (maybe because my child died not long before). Has anyone pre-ordere...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Anyone else try the Onrush PS4 beta? Great to see some originality in a racer (with no races), but I found once you got past the initial thrill it soon felt very shallow and success very random. I am really, really enjoying Golf Story on the Switch! As much as I want to get Ocarina of Time finished...

Re: 350: Final Fantasy VII

Ah, Final Fantasy VII... one of my favourite games of all time. I still think of it often, even 20 years or so later yet I have little desire to go back to play it (PS1 original or other versions). Don't get me wrong, Final Fantasy VII was, and probably still is one of the best RPGs there is but for...

Re: Fallout: New Vegas – Cane and Rinse 246

I think I enjoyed this podcast more than my two playthroughs of the game! Some very interesting contributions from the C&R team which have somewhat added to my appreciation of Fallout: New Vegas. A terribly buggy game (even on 360 with all patches), way too big and ambitious for it's own good. I per...

It’s 2.50 on eBay so I’ve taken the plunge. It’ll be a while before I play it but I can’t imagine it being much cheaper in the future
Hope you like it then mate.

If you need any help with anything on it (collectibles or whatever) just drop me a message anytime.

Re: 346: Resident Evil 6 (Biohazard 6)

I thought I would have a great time and really enjoy Resi 6 playing through with a friend but we both found it a bit of a boring grind. The missions went on too long, the story was very confusing and the enemies were absolutely awful (a man turning into a dinosaur being the worst of all). Despite th...

Re: All things Resident Evil (Biohazard)

What did you guys think of Resident Evil 6? I started the game last week and I've only played Leon's first few chapters and Ada's first chapter so far. I'm quite impressed so far though, the action cut-scenes are very cheap and annoying but the gameplay and atmosphere is top notch in my opinion. The...

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

A great track from one of my personal favorite PS3 games and soundtracks, 'Lave' from 'Super Stardust HD'.
Not much to say about it really but classic video game music I'm sure you'll agree.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Batman Returns - SNES Seems to make perfect sense playing this on a cold winter's evening. Yet another cracker from Konami's early to mid 90's schedule. Wow, that's an old one. A couple of nights ago I was thinking about an old Batman game on the SNES, couldn't rememember the title... turned out it...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Persona 4 Arena. My first experience with a Persona title and would rate it as one of the best beat-em-ups I've ever played (even better than SFIV and MvC3!). The game is stunning to look at. Everything looks polished and super stylish from the title screen and characters to the combos and finishing...

Re: Sound of Play: 43

Really good show. Hearing 'Battle with an Esper' has made me want to play Final Fantasy XII. Has the soundtrack for the PS4 version been remixed like the FFX/X2 HD remaster?

'Room of Angel' was a nice track too.

Cheers guys.

Excellent job on the Mirror's Edge podcast. Great to hear how much the C&R team enjoyed it and their views on with game. Personally I liked everything about Mirror's Edge (except the horrible vocal track "Still Alive", other than that the games instrumental soundtrack is amazing, "Kate - puzzle" bei...
