Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Today I managed to get hold of a Dreamcast SCART cable (moody one though 😬) and have dusted off my Dremcast for some RGB action on the PVM. I instantly reached for my beloved Speed Devils and have been enjoying the early stages of the career mode in that. Despite the God awful music in the game, it...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

UHHHHHHHHHHH I GOT SOME MASSIVELY COOL NEWS FOR FANS OF EINHANDER. (Yes you.) KH3 SPOILERS AHOY. One of the hidden bosses in the game is a battle with the Schwartzgeist (jellyfish) boss, complete with a remix of its signature boss theme. After the Endymion appeared as a hidden boss in World of Final...

Also, that's a long list of releases - until you realize about half of them are absolutely pointless to the central story.
Wait... there's a story?1?
Just search up "dunkey kingdom hearts" .

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been playing Steep this evening. It's oddly addictive. Even though it's not the best snowboarding game I've played (see SSX), or even the best snow racing game I've played (see Sled Storm), the bite sized challenges which lead on from one another have caused me to continue playing a good 90 mi...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm about 12 hours into KH3 now... Beat the Toy Story world, started on the Tangled one. I still have no idea what to make of this game. The combat is fine, but I think I've identified the "rides" as the only piece that doesn't really fit. The writing and acting is just all over the place. Nearly ev...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm definitely interested in KH3, but I'm still only halfway through the first game. Last time I played it a while back I was lost in some caves in Aladdin world. That's definitely on my list of things I want to finish this year after RDR2 and Spiderman. I'm determined not to buy any games this yea...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Oh my god the ball puzzle things in Final Fantasy X are some of the worst, flow breaking pieces of junk I've ever played. Just utterly pointless, irritating, boring, there is literally nothing good about them. Ugh. Ahh yes. Cloyster of Trials. https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/sonicpokemon/images...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been playing Kingdom Hearts 3 and it's such a bizarre game... The dialogue and voice acting have somehow taken a step down since the 3DS title? But the quality widely varies. It definitely seems like a game cobbled together from too many years in development - too many combat mechanics, scenes ...

Re: Videogame News

The Aleste game on MD was widely known as ‘MUSHA’ - any help? Honestly, I'm a really big SHMUP fan, and even I have very limited knowledge of the Aleste series. It's possible that they have more exposure in Europe - I'm only aware of (rare, ludicrously expensive) titles on the Genesis and SCD. And ...

Re: Anthem

Welcome to the lonely hearts club. These kind of games hit or miss for people. It felt like i was the only one into sea of thieves and despite it being a Rare game, people said it didnt feel like one. Sea of Thieves launched pretty bare bones, but within like 4-6 months, it was a substantially bett...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

There's rumours that the Smaus Returns devs (Mercury Steam) may have been tapped for a Metroid 5 on the Switch. I'd be okay with this.

Re: Games Completed 2019

5th Jan - Rise of the Tomb Raider (XBO) 1st Feb - Doom (2016) (XBO) That was fun, but also oddly forgettable at the same time? I prefer my shooters a bit slower paced than this, so I doubt I’m really getting into the ‘flow’ that those who really like this one do. There's no doubt that it's very DOO...

Re: Anthem

For me it’s not about writing off BioWare after ME:A, it’s that there seems to have been a distinct downward trajectory, starting with DAII, ME3, DA:I and continuing through as most of the studio’s key creative talent has upped sticks. The BioWare that’s making Anthem is an EA studio, and bears no ...

Re: Anthem

I hate it on principle because it's a me-too "live services" game that will undoubtedly be designed from the ground up to be a boring grindfest for players who don't dish out rent every month just to make the game engaging.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Anyone else playing Final Fantasy X in preparation for the show? I'm about 20 hours in to my first ever play of it, just got to a battle that lasted 40 min before I died, FFS :( I think FF10 is a wonderful game the first time around, but I really found its pace to be downright glacial during the se...
