Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

AC Odyssey is a great 20 hour game trapped in an 80 hour game. I'll have much more to say about that on the podcast. :P

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

RE: Witcher game discussion. I'd legit suggest skipping The Witcher 1 completely, unless you have a high tolerance for archaic PC RPG game design. Expect tons of menuing, middling presentation values, tons of jank, and a very monotonous pace. Witcher 2 has some of these problems as well, but it's a ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Presently working on a double-header of Rocket Knight Adventures (Genesis) and Sparkster (SNES). After those, I'll probably try and finish Yakuza 0 for the sake of the podcast - I think I'm on Chapter 12 or 13, of 16. And I wanna get back to No More Heroes 2 soon as well.

Re: All 92+ Commercially Released Consoles, Ranked

I’ve always found it odd that handhelds are often considered separately from tv consoles. They are games consoles, they just have integrated screens. I think it's largely because handheld consoles are often a generation or two behind contemporary TV console technology, and they don't tend to fit in...

All 92+ Commercially Released Consoles, Ranked

I found a really great video that I feel a need to share. They take literally every console ever released to market (a Casio console marketed at young girls with a built-in sticker printer, anyone? Tomy Puter Jr.?) ranging from ultra-obscure to, well, the things we have in our living rooms right now...

Re: Games Completed 2020

#2 Hidden Agenda: Pretty good game. Def would have been more fun multiplayer, but for some reason, it doesn't have any online component whatsoever. And unlike something like Jackbox, you can't even play multiplayer while streaming, which is stupid. But I still enjoyed it for what it was - very compe...

Re: Games Completed 2020

Game #1:
I just finished an obscure 90's Souls-like called Putt-Putt Goes To The Moon. Despite the high difficulty and dark themes, I managed to finish it in just over an hour. Highly recommended for fans of ultra-violence and body horror.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've mentioned it before, but does everyone know you can use your wireless PS4 and Xbox headphones on Switch? All you have to do is plug the dongle in the USB slot. This, of course, only works in TV mode. If my answer doesn't help sorry, I've not read the whole conversation! I actually STILL use th...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I gotta a question for Nintendo hardware fanatics. So, I rented Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair for Switch and I LOVED IT. Yes, it's free on Epic Storem but I'm like 10 hours deep into my Switch save file... So I've been wanting to pick that up. Thing is though, it's SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper to im...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've just been playing Apex. I been meaning to play other stuff, but I dunno, I kinda need the adrenaline rush right now. That said though, I do intend to stream Aladdin (SNES), Putt-Putt Goes To The Moon, No More Heroes 2 and Hidden Agenda (co-op with my friend in France) in the coming week or two....

Re: Retro gaming

Some of these may cost more in PAL territories, so my pricing knowledge can really only extend to what I'd pay for them in Canada. But off-hand, some of the essentials I'd target... - Final Fantasy VII, VIII and Tactics (each are like $10-30 max) - Resident Evil 2 ($20) - Mega Man Legends ($30-40) (...

What is it, like Where's Wally or something? Yeah I'm not sure it's something I'd want to sit at a PC playing. Maybe on a phone, at a push.
You mean Where's Waldo? ;D

Re: Games Completed 2019

I think I may try and squeeze Halo 1 into my 52 Game Challenge this year. I have the Master Chef Collection through Game Pass, so I'll give 'er a go. Probably on easy mode because I remember hitting a difficulty spike early on in the XB original. Life's too short for smashing your head into a brick ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finished Starlink on Switch and thoroughly enjoyed it. There is a little bit of repetitive grind towards the end of the main campaign, but generally there’s some stunning worlds to explore, nice space fighting and a lot more Starfox than I expected. And all for a tenner with some nice looking plast...

Re: Videogame Deals

IMPORTANT PSA:
Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair (one of the best platformers I've played in a long time) is FREE on the Epic Games Store until Jan. 1st, 11am EST (which I think is like 6am for Britons?). GO GRAB THIS GAME. It's legitimately great.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I think it depends largely on what hooks you in a story. Flabyo mentioned Xenosaga 2 in their comment, and while I haven't yet played it, I know that the type of narrative presented in its marketing and reviews will likely be enough to keep my invested for a while. Stanshall mentioned Spiderman, and...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I echo your feelings on The Last of Us, but I played it when the Remastered version on PS4 first came out, whenever that was. 2014? I don't think it's a matter of age that marrs it, I think it's just one of those games people decided was going to be great before it even came out. It's... Fine. It's ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

So I returned Fire Emblem: Three Stooges to the rental store after giving it another go today... And I think its greatest sin, above all, is dumping way too much content on me before giving me a reason to care. The game demands, "Hey, fight these bandits! Make dinner with this waifu! Explore the hub...

Re: Games Completed 2019

How's the CTR remake compare to the original? I still own the original, and I'd considered the new one, but $50 for it when the Crash Trilogy (for three games) cost the same felt a bit steep. Plus all I've heard about the game is how aggressively monetized it is. Just wondering if it improves enough...
