  1. I’m not sure FromSoft prioritise graphical fidelity in their games, they tend to concentrate more on evolving whatever they did previously from a gameplay perspective, almost as if they’re tuning an engine. I for one hope they carry on doing so. I can see why certain parts of this reveal may disappoint visually, but honestly, it’s gonna be amazing. OBJECTIVELY AMAZING.
  2. It might be related to Warzone as the new map drops for that on December 2nd as well.
  3. CoD seems to have been on a downward trajectory for some time now, and I fully to expect Vanguard to be average at best, but the lack of fanfare for this is truly insane. Review embargo was up at 1pm and not a flicker anywhere from what I can tell.
  4. The open space areas look a bit bland and uninspiring but the built up parts and boss encounters in that vid look amazing. I have total confidence in FromSoft though. Cannot wait.
  5. I have a real issue with stick clicks when I play Warzone. Essentially, I tend to tense up when I’m in a firefight and click on the sticks pretty much all the time. The result used to be me meleeing when I should be shooting, but I swapped it over so that I crouch and then go prone instead (which can actually be beneficial in a pinch but I’d still rather not do it). Anyway, I don’t think there’s an option for having no action associated to a click so I guess I’m stuck with it
  6. I tried it briefly the other day for Lone Echo and was disappointed with it, it just made the experience feel a bit janky. I didn’t play around with any settings though so nice to hear that it helps.

    I played the first few hours of this when it came out and really enjoyed it but fell off of it for some reason. I’d much prefer to play it handheld but I hear the loading times on the Switch are pretty bad. Might have to wait for the Steam Deck to land!
  8. This really is good. The writing and performances are top tier and the graphics are lovely. The gameplay and technical performance both feel a little under-baked however, which is a real shame. Nothing terrible, but could’ve done with a little more polish. I’m playing on PC and have had two occasions where I’ve had to reload to the last checkpoint as the game just wouldn’t progress. I also find the combat a bit frenetic and unfocused. In the middle of a crazy battle it’s quite difficult to try and choose a Guardian and then a specific ability to use. Maybe that’s just me though. Still having fun with it!
  9. I’m playing sitting and using the teleporting movement and found it to be fine. To be honest, I haven’t even tried the regular movement, I’ve just assumed it’ll give me motion sickness. Might give it a go later.
  10. Hmm, can’t agree with you there I’m afraid. Demons Souls, Spider-Man Miles Morales, Returnal, Ratchet & Clank, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Deathloop. Not a bad showing really.
  11. Every time I see Bugsnax I can’t help but think it’s some sort of joke. I’m sure someone will pop up and try and convince me it’s pretty good, but no. Just no. Poor showing overall.
  12. I believe I have actually…will DM you.
  13. Ha, I was thinking exactly the same thing. In fact, I thought it was a bit weird.
  14. The inventory management alone is worth the price of admission..
  15. Well, I didn’t see that coming. Currently sat at 81 on Metacritic.
  16. Agreed on all counts. I played this for ages yesterday and loved it. It feels so strange to know an environment so well and then be ‘in’ it. I think RE having tank controls is what makes the switch to VR so successful.
  17. I imagine they’re really feeling the pressure for this reveal after the previous effort. Fingers crossed.
  18. Oh, really? I could’ve sworn it had been announced? Oh well, guess I’ll get it on PC then!
  19. Argh, I really wanna play this but I want the Switch version!
  20. I played this a little bit when it first came out but fell off pretty quickly before I got a real feel for it. Is it basically a first person Hades meets bullet hell shooter?
  21. Christ, tough crowd. I’m not sure I’ve seen a better impression of anyone ever if I’m honest. At first I thought he was just able to do the exaggerated zany parts of his personality, but I was impressed by how he captured his mannerisms and quieter moments.
  22. A lot of people keep saying this. It wasn't mentioned in the rules, no, but come on, the characters in the show and us as viewers surely know that that isn’t going to cut it. The people running the game don’t think twice about killing the contestants so it’s not much of a stretch to assume that doing what you say would result in a sniper shot to the head.
  23. What the fuck is going on with the release date for this? Not only is it out a year late because of Covid, but it’s coming out on November 18th meaning it’s missing the Halloween window, which just seems crazy. And reviews have already dropped! This should be hitting cinemas tomorrow, surely!?
  24. I’m loving this. The bosses are tough, and I usually get pretty pissed off after a few tries, assuming I’m unlikely to ever beat them. But I keep chipping away, trying new approaches and eventually bring them down. So very satisfying. And I’ve beaten all the Souls games! I think the difficulty took me by surprise as the cartoon look and cute pet sidekicks had me thinking this would be a lighter affair, but I’m glad they went tougher on the gameplay. Reminds me a bit of Immortals: Fenyx Rising, which I also really enjoyed.
