Re: What's Out This Week?

If you own the original version of Mafia 2 or 3 you get an upgrade to the Definitive Edition for free. Also apparently when the remake of 1 comes out, owning either of the others will give you a discount on that too. It seems both versions are simply just ports/DLC bundles. No change in the games th...

Re: Ghost of Tsushima

I quite liked that demo in general. Some stuff is really appealing, but other stuff I'm still unsure on. The visual design and world look great. That looks like a world I want to poke around in and take in the atmosphere. I also really like the emphasis on making navigation feel natural, particularl...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

There are still some racing games that do that full on customisation aspect well. Forza Horizon 4 has all the spoilers, rims and body kits you could wish for. It just hides a lot of it deep in menus you may not venture into. Does it have sliders though, like in those old PS2 racers? The Forza games...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Was you a fan of the Bayonetta games? I had a similar problem with them in that I just found everything happening on the screen too chaotic and struggled to see what moves I was doing, where enemies were and where Bayonetta was. In comparison I got on with the Ninja Theory DmC game as I thought the...

The teaser lists PS4/XB1 at the end. No mention of PS5/XBX as of yet.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been lucky enough to be given a free copy of The Wonderful 101 Remastered , as some people are giving away their bonus codes that Kickstarter backers were given to make up for the delay of the physical versions being shipped out. I do own the original Wii U version as well, but I never really g...

Re: Videogame News

So the rumours were true. Interesting, as I don't think there was any hint at Mafia 1 in the previous leaks. Perhaps that means they will sell them all individually as well, or perhaps only 2 and 3. When I've been poking around the internet looking up stuff about these games, it seems the idea of a ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I got PCSX2 up and running again for the first time in ages, so I've been having a bit of a fiddle around with Midnight Club 3 again. This is another old racer that I have fondness for from back in the day, but if I'm honest, it's never been that great to go back to. In fact if I look back on my ori...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

More Burnout Paradise Remastered . Starting to get in to the groove with it more now. It seems a big part of it is simply unlocking cars that feel better to drive. Except weirdly they only start showing up after the credits roll. So I've technically "finished" the game by one metric, yet the game do...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

More Mafia 3 . I think I'm starting to get in to the last third or so. It drags a whole lot in the middle. The repetitive and subpar gameplay really sets in hard. It even has you returning to the same locations within the same sequence of taking down enemy rackets of a specific area boss. And while ...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Bloody hell, that's absurd. You can get it on PC right now for 1/10th of that price. I have been thinking about picking it up recently too. Always been reluctant to given how I really hate how EA has handled the series, and all the other stuff related to that mess. But being able to have the choice ...

Re: Royal Mail's 2020 video game stamps

Seems like not having anything related to Rare is a pretty big oversight. Perhaps it's hard to get the rights to do so, with those IPs being tied up with Nintendo and Microsoft. Or maybe they felt those relationships made those games less "British"?

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finally picked up Mafia 3 and first impressions are quite mixed. It starts off with a bang, with the same bank heist mission from the demo. Originally I thought the way that sequence skips back and forth through time to simultaneously show the set-up and execution of the job was specific for the dem...

Re: Games Completed 2020

One thing you might not be aware of with Fable Anniversary was that Lionhead didn’t do much of the work on it, it was mostly outsourced, especially on the art remastering. I think the only in house engineering work was adding the achievements to it. We were all making Fable the Journey and Fable Le...

Re: Games Completed 2020

Interesting you should say that. I remember fable looking beautiful on the og Xbox too! When I went back to it myself relatively recently, in comparison with other titles on the system it's actually pretty rough. The art style is charming but technically it's a bit of a mess and the overabundance o...
