Re: Games Completed 2019

That's a shame! I was hoping RAGE 2 would fill the Borderlands-shaped hole in my gaming life. Sadly, from everything I've seen/heard, I get the impression that the shooting is fun, but the world and story let the side down. On that basis, I'll wait for DOOM Eternal to get my tight, fast id FPS, and ...

Re: If you could only pick one console...

Hang on! I need some clarification here. Are Wii/WiiU/3DS' Virtual Console or Vita's PSOne catalogues allowed? They could be seen as digital re-releases of previous gen games, and therefore equivalent to a HD remaster/re-release. So Xbox 360 backwards compatibility for Xbox One should also qualify, ...

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

It obviously depends on what you're looking for from gaming. I choose not to rely solely on Game Pass, Games With Gold, PlayStation Plus, EA/Origin Access, Humble Monthly, and Epic Store's free games; I'd feel like I was missing out on too many games that interest me if I did that. That said, if I j...

Re: E3 2019 - Conference times and general chat

Getting ever closer! There are a few other events I'll be looking out for... EA has multiple streams throughout its EA Play event (7th-9th June). At least that means I can cherry pick the Apex Legends and (maybe) Jedi: Fallen Order streams and ignore the rest. Quite glad they're not doing a press co...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

We finally got around to Legion's second season, just in time for Season 3 to arrive next month. This show is certainly my favourite superhero TV show, and pretty high up there in my estimation of TV shows in general. Fiction which plays with unreliable and/or shifting perception is something I tend...

Re: Avengers: Endgame (Spoiler Thread)

I'm not going to pretend I have answers to all (or even any) of these questions. Partly, I think it is just an issue with stories about time travel. However, I think the most important rule in all this is that it is not possible to change the past to impact the present that we see in the film. Initi...

Re: Avengers: Endgame (Spoiler Thread)

Hmm. I didn't have much of an issue with any of your points, strangely. The rat seems like such a fluke, but this is a 1 in 14 million chance of success, so I feel like a random act such as that fits okay. Tony doesn't want to be involved, I think, in part because he's still angry, and in part becau...

We're off to watch Avengers: Endgame tomorrow (Sunday) morning. Figured it'd be good to have a place for anyone who's seen the film to chat about it, without having to hold back on story/spoiler stuff. No spoiler tags necessary, because I put "spoiler" in the thread title. :mrgreen: *Fair warning* -...

That sounds wretched, Magical_Isopod. Glad you managed to get yourself into a better place, both employment-wise and emotionally/mentally. I can't imagine unionisation would be a magic wand that solves such problems, but the fear of unions these companies/industries have is a strong argument in favo...

Re: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

I've not been getting as much Sekiro time as I'd like, but am planning to crack on this weekend. I'm continually bowled over by how many areas there are to explore from the castle; I keep finding new paths and being drawn to explore rather than climbing the castle itself.

Re: Dark Souls III

In fact the early game becomes a horrible grinding chore unless you pick a melee class, with many suggesting that you select this class first then switch to a sorcerer later in the game. Regarding starting class, I only ever pick based on what I want to be doing for the first hour or two of the gam...

Re: Dark Souls III

However, I do think as an actual endpoint for the game, and overall “antagonist”, it doesn’t really work very well. It’s a great boss fight, and the callbacks to Gwyn make sense, but it doesn’t really come across like an actual character with an agenda. I think that's exactly my issue with this fig...

Re: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

I'm slowly, but surely improving. It's been a long time since I learned how to play Demon's Souls, and no Souls game since, nor Bloodborne has had such a long learning period as Sekiro has for me. Precise timing and quick reactions are not my strong suit, so the other night I spent an hour or so in ...
