Re: Warframe 2021

I'm not sure what frame I started with now, but I've put a few hours in to the Switch one. It's fun to dip in and out of now and then, and performance isn't bad, but the framerate does take an occasional hit when you're in a particularly large open area. (Actually just checked, I chose Excalibur). ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

A lot of people have said the Ringed City's central design thesis of "F*****G RUN!" harms the exploration that's important to Dark Souls, and I agree, particularly when those giant sorcerers respawn which I think is unnecessary. It's a shame because the environments themselves are really ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finished Dark Souls 3: The Ringed City today, beat the final boss on my lunch break, which was oddly satisfying. Overall I'd say the levels of this DLC were punishing in a way I didn't enjoy. It didn't really encourage exploration, so I ended up sprinting through a fair amount of it, which meant th...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I played some of 6, decent as a co-op game but didn't feel very Resi. To be fair we were on Chris' campaign which is the most Gearsy, CoD-y one apparently. Only got a few hours in. @ HaloFandango I think Resi 3 remake is pure quality. I'm about 1/2 way through now and it's just a treat. Ah, okay, w...

Wow, it was that bad? Maybe a good game for a laugh with some friends ;)

Re: The "Introduce yourself" thread

Hey guys, Eterno here. Started listening to your podcast about a month ago and thought it was absolutely worth 2$ a month, so here I am. You really remind me of the good old videogames magazines with 12 pages review or in-depth analysis. Absolutely love it! As for myself, I'm French and started pla...

Hello, I've been listening to this podcast and supporting on Patreon for a while and just wanted to get involved with the forums. I'm James a 25 year old guy in the USA, I irresponsibly own every platform and my favorite game is Bloodborne. I didn't grow up gaming, so I've been playing a lot of cat...

Re: Warframe 2021

I decided to pick up some Platinum as a way to support the developers and decided to buy Nyx's Frame and helmet accessory outright. I won't be spending any more money on the game in the near future, but just as a thank you to the developers for making a decent free-to-play AAA game! https://am3pap00...

Re: Warframe 2021

Mag was my starting frame ... and still has the most play time of the eight or so frames that are in my collection. I'm all self-taught so I wonder what I've missed - I think I'll be trying that series! From my experience so far, Warframe is a good game to just experience and find things out for yo...

Re: Our next Console Special podcast recording (27.6.21) - PlayStation 3

As a fan of the Xbox and Xbox 360 generation, it took my college friends (who are still aligned with the mighty Playstation), to get me to buy a PS3. Once I did, I was constantly playing my PS3 until I went to university. I initially bought the 80GB Fat model, then the Slim and now the BBQ Grill ver...

Re: E3 2021 - Yes, it's happening!? Times and schedule

EA confirmed to NOT be there, instead holding its own EA Play in July. Definitely looking forward to that, Apex Legends Season 9 has been great so far and hopefully they can announce some new support characters. I was kind of surprised with the amount of companies that signed up to E3 this year. I ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Resi is in the air so I decided to finally start RE3 remake. I'm about two hours in. It's terrific . Such a tight, polished game and so much fun. Just crackling with energy and never stops throwing setpieces and action at you. Oh man, yeah Resident Evil 3 is one I need to get. It is quite short fro...

Re: 473 - Sonic the Hedgehog

Playing this on my friend's Mega Drive back in the day was such a fun experience. I had recently gotten a Playstation and had transferred into the 3D realm, however the *bling* sound of Sonic collecting rings and his insane speed was too much to resist. Sonic's cool 90's attitude was exactly what a ...

Awesome, I pinged you a friend request and no sweat, whenever you are online! I'll install the game this week and give it a try. I was reading through the Warframe wiki and it is a great knowledge base, all of the Warframes look really cool. In terms of monetisation, from what i've heard the game i...

Re: Games Completed 2021

I really need to pick this game up when it goes on sale! Shame it couldn't have been called Ion Maiden, but hey, that's lawyers for you! Are there are ton of creative weapons like in the older Build Engine games? I would say the weapons are fairly typical, there's nothing crazy like a BFG, though y...

Re: Warframe 2021

You can absolutely ignore the systems at the beginning and just potter from mission area to mission area - and it's probably for the best until you are confident in what your frame can do!

Finished Ion Fury for PS4 tonight. Fun, really tough in certain places, a little bit too long for its own good. Generally enjoyable and a fun throwback to an old style of FPS.
