Re: Games Completed 2019

1st Jan - Virginia (Xbox One) 13th Jan - Gravity Rush 2 (PS4) 27th Jan - Mortal Kombat (Vita) 3rd Feb - Mortal Kombat X (Xbox One) Wanted to run through the story modes of both games before April, and far enough in advance that I'm not gored out when MK11 hits. Still, for my money, the best story m...

Re: Apex Legends

I can definitely see some tweaks to these. For example, I get that being able to place an exit portal anywhere you can see might be really OP, but if it were a grenade toss, like Gibraltar and Bangalore's air strikes, it'd at least allow for recon and taking risks a bit more. Likewise, Bangalore's s...

Re: Apex Legends

I haven't seen much use of Pathfinder, to be honest. Would be interested to see its abilities used effectively, because they seem limited to me, on paper at least.

Re: Apex Legends

Had a lot of fun with Apex this week. Definitely preferred playing with Dez and Flabyo (without voice chat in both cases), but managed pretty well even with randoms. The tagging/ping system is a massive factor in that; I really wouldn't want to use voice chat outside of friend parties. My only conce...

Re: Anthem

Yeah, entirely understandable. As I've said elsewhere on the forum, I keep feeling a momentary, but ridiculous pull towards R6 Siege, Warframe, Destiny 2, The Division 2 and Anthem. The fact that I won't play with others, and that the two of them I've properly tried left me largely cold, seem to esc...

Re: Anthem

If Rainbow Six Siege, Destiny/2, Warframe and The Division are anything to go by, we should probably wait a year before playing any games-as-service.

Still kinda umm-ing and ahh-ing over the open beta this weekend though, so what do I know?!

Re: Anthem

The beta is on again this weekend (open to all this time), but yeah, we're only two weeks away from the early-access trial.

Can't remember a "big" release with as little forum interest as Anthem seems to have. Interested to see how it does.

Re: Volume Eight

Thanks for the heads up, Magical_Isopod. It's the same on my download via Pocket Casts.

I've passed along to Leon and Jay to investigate. :?:

Anthem

I need your help! I've watched and heard a reasonable amount about Anthem over the past week (Giant Bomb's Unfinished vid, TCGS' stream, and some podcasts also) and I am absolutely befuddled by the complaints, especially those that Destiny players have been raising. Let's play a game of ' Destiny or...

Re: Our next podcast recording (1.2.19) - 355: Street Fighter IV series

Nice comeback! :-D
It's certainly been great going back to SFIV in prep for the show. I've been reminded of one or two things I've missed with SFV.

Re: Videogame News

Oh Division 2 might be something. My wife and I really enjoyed playing through the first, if you ignore political aspects of the game and just enjoy the solid gunplay. Or I just pretend it's not set in the US but post Brexit Britian ;) "Ignore the political aspects" might as well be Ubisoft's catch...

Re: Our next podcast recording (1.2.19) - 355: Street Fighter IV series

Hi both! Thank you so much for your comments. You've both encouraged me to think long and hard about my thoughts on SFIV's complexity, approachability, and impact on the fighting game genre. I think there's a middle ground to be found between your respective perspectives. With your agreement, I'd li...

Re: 354: Hitman (2016)

Sorry simonsloth, we recorded on Friday night. I can't remember how to rename forum topics, or I'd've renamed and moved this out of here. Hopefully our discussion will make up for your post not making it into the recording. Apologies!

Re: Mortal Kombat 11

Just rewatched the Geras trailer, and I have to say he looks like good fun to me. Also, only just got that his abilities are based around sand and time... the sands of time!

(Clearly I was very tired tonight to not have realised that right away.)

Yep, all in. Should probably make use of MKX being on Xbox Game Pass to lay some groundwork in the next couple of months.

Re: Mortal Kombat 11

The return of Skarlet anywhere near as exciting a prospect as Baraka, do you think?
