Re: What do you think about the Resident Evil timeline?

The B-movie schlock is definitely what makes these games so appealing. If you have played Resident Evil 7, would you say that game is more akin to a slasher movie? The speedruns of this game are really interesting to watch. I really want to play Resi 7, I just need to hunt down a copy. I've played ...

Re: What do you think about the Resident Evil timeline?

I'm always a sucker for these kind of projects and it's clear that a lot of time and effort has gone into this - I have a feeling I caught this some time ago whilst it was worked upon so had already seen part of it - that or someone else has already something similar Resident Evil as well remains on...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

If I've missed this earlier, my apologises but the last couple of days I've been enjoying rehearing the Timesplitters 2 soundtrack. One of my favourite series, this was a lighthearted FPS that firmly remains on my 'where's the next one?' list. A remaster would be acceptable as well. The plot was pat...

Just to let you know, we're putting out Overcooked All You Can Eat later this year which will have added accessibility options which should help with some of the difficulty curve. Glad you've enjoyed Moving Out :)

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Xbox's Summer Games events means there are a lot of games currently available (possibly only on Game Pass?) Haven't had much time to properly look through them but do have a couple to suggest If anyone was a fan of Overcooked then Team17 have brought out Movin' Out . It's the same quirky graphics an...

Re: Video game tie-in media

Whilst I can't think of many games I'd particularly want to read a novel about, I've read plenty of games related comics over the last few years. They range from really quite good to fairly dull and uninspired. I think there's such a lot of potential there to really expand upon the game world. I'd ...

Re: 432: The Gardens Between

This game is (maybe was ... by the time someone reads this) available on Xbox Game Pass. I was intrigued by the trailer as the facility to set your time forward and back allows the potential for some interesting challenges. The story is poignant but not overdone and it's shown in a lovely style. How...

Re: 436: Oxenfree

Oxenfree is probably one of my favourite games that I will almost never play and comes down to one particular thing. The first time through it's a competent side on narrative game with the usual trappings of teenagers headed somewhere remote and getting involved in supernatural events. Enjoyable, so...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Tried out No Man's Sky a few nights ago as it's available on Game Pass. It starts well enough but I lost interest at the point where I'm required to build a base. I was interested in having a game where I could fly across the universe, exploring at my leisure but I have to say that having to farm re...

Re: Books completed

In what is turning into an ongoing review I polished off the second Dragonlance book (Dragons of Winter Night). Much better quite honestly. A healthy dollop of humour and the relationships already seem much developed than from the first book. And the introduction of tinker gnomes! I'm not certain th...

The Dragonlance movie is as bad as the reviews imply BTW

Having gone through all of Dan Abnetts Gaunt's Ghosts series (each a damn fine sci-fi war story that you do not need to have any knowledge of Warhammer 40K to enjoy) during lockdown, I decided to revisit a trilogy from my youth that I first read in my first year at secondary school, picked up ever f...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

My recent run through Portal 2 reminded me of the You Monster dlc for the tower defence game Defense Grid . Though it took me a bit of a search to confirm that I had never actually got around to buying it (re-ends to wish list...) However it also reminded me that I was in the midst of a Defense Grid...

So I’ve been playing Nier Automata, got up to the points just past the boss at the fairground and... I think I’m done. I can see why people like it, but I just... don’t. I don’t like the aesthetic, but mainly it’s that I really dislike the ‘if you’re die you have to find your corpse or be punished’...

Re: Gaming firsts /most influential games
