Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Fear not, clippa. This is largely about how the games hit me when I played them. Your Mario Kart DS reasoning is much the same as mine for why 6 Golden Coins is my Mario inclusion. I'd struggle to say it's 'better' than many other Mario games, but it means the most to me, and so is my favourite. I'v...

Teppen (New Capcom card game)

So, Capcom announced Project Battle a couple of weeks ago, by sending out demo versions to some streamers, who knew nothing about it, or how to play it.

Anyway, it's now available on iOS and Android, and is called TEPPEN. Bizarre marketing strategy, but there you go.

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Started whittling down everything I've played into a list of 50. June 2016 was the last time I did this, and that time frame presents a specific problem. I use a 'one game per series' rule, to avoid half the list being from a handful of series. I find this focuses me on what I like about a series. I...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Getting close to a scary zero-backlog world, so I figure now is a good time to revisit this. Gonna spend some time today on it in fact. It's been a few years since I last did one, and I dare say there have been some changes.

The code worked. Thanks James I will soon be receiving my cardboard through the post. My wife will be delighted! Haha.
Phew! Excellent. No idea what I did wrong first time around.
Better that the code goes to someone who will use it, rather than my ungrateful arse. :mrgreen:
Enjoy!

It does say that it's "personalised", but no mention I could see in the T&Cs that it was tied to my account. I guess we'll find out.

Check your emails, I’ve had a code for 50% off Labo sets from Nintendo UK.
Anyone else get this email and not need their code?
Absolutely. Check your PMs!

Edit: Now sent, but the PM isn't showing in my sent folder. Let me know if you received the message, or if I should re-send. Cheers!

Re: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Fair to say you've reached the point at which the map opens up. I know it's not what you want to hear, but anywhere you can go is perfectly fine for now. You might find that you progress to a dead end or insurmountable challenge in any given direction, but as long as you're finding new Sculptor's Id...

No Hardcore Mecha on PS4 outside of Asia yet? I mean, I guess I could pick it up on PC. :roll:

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I really enjoyed Infamous: Second Son - it opens up to loads more than just smoke based stuff. It was more of the same for the series, but I really liked the first two games, too. I'd definitely be up for more, although I do still have Last Light to play actually. Did you give up on it or you going...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Been having a bit of a backlog blast over the past week. A few years ago, my backlog stood at something like 600 games; between changing PSN accounts (before PSN ID changes were allowed) and spending the odd week/weekend clearing a bunch of games, I'm now down under 100. I've taken to giving each ga...

Re: All things Telltale

Sounds like Telltale wanted to put a disc out before the full season was released, which means (as you say) the disc itself is a download key. Unless I'm mistaken, this is similar to how backwards compatible games work on Xbox One. The disc has to be in to play, I'm guessing?

James, if it is any consolation, the second Batman is much better and actually worth checking out.
Thanks, I'll bear that in mind. :)
Think I also have Wolf Among Us and Borderlands from Plus/Gold, so should probably give those a look at some point.

Re: All things Telltale

Coincidentally, I started Batman: The Telltale Series yesterday, and was compelled enough with the story to see it through all 5 episodes. This was the first of Telltale’s games I’ve played through since The Walking Dead: Season 1. The limits of Telltale’s formula and engine were pretty apparent, I ...
