    Any fighting tips? I'm struggling a little on some of the encounters, I tend to get crowded pretty quickly. Should I focus more on the rush style and try to dodge? When I try to do the charge move I get interrupted 9 out of 10 times. Also I can't decide if the lock on is useful or not. In short, I suck :(.

     

    From what little I've played whilst feeling like hell, the combat seems to be much tougher than previous entries, mainly due to it taking away the generous invincibility frames that the older games had (mostly when throwing other people). Early on I'd recommend picking up weapons/furniture and swinging them wildly (Brawler fighting style).

    It depends on what you find interesting, as @Gorf King said above, and actually having read his post I agree, the story doesn't need all this extra stuff filling in, I played it and loved the story, had a quick search around as to a certain post-credits scene but other than that it made perfect sense. 

     

    What I found interesting was (spoilered just in case:) 

     

      Hide contents

    Apparently during the World of Ruin, (Dark world/Old Noctis) a few months before launch, the entire map was explorable there. You originally were supposed to venture round this dark, demon infested take on the world, visit Iris/Cor and find out what they've been doing before then travelling round and reassembling your bro team as its noted that they spent the years apart. 

     


     

    Other areas were also fully developed and ready to play but were cut, for instance when you are on the train and get out to see Shiva's giant body by the tracks, that whole area was explorable, same with Tenebrae, originally when you got there, everything was Ok, you could go to Luna's mansion and then the empire invade and you fight your way back to the train, just stuff like that.

     

     

     

    Incidentally, I'd be interested to hear what people think about certain parts of the end. 

     

     

      Hide contents

    When Noctis descends into the other realm and Ardyn is waiting for him, his father, the old kings and the bros all appear along with Luna to banish him for one last time. When I saw this, I assumed the bros were there as a representation of strength etc but I've read in various places, people saw it and assumed they died holding off the daemons outside. 

     


     

    Similiarly in the post-credits scene with Noctis + Luna married, I took this as they meet up again in the afterlife but others are saying it's some sort of time thing where it becomes reality, almost like a reset button (although to me that seems like too much of a cop out. The devs themselves have said it was kept vague on purpose so you can draw your own conclusion, just interested in what other people thought.

     

     

     

     

    On the first spoiler:

     

    Personally I'd heard that it was only a few areas of WOR Lucis that were going to be explorable such as Lestallum, but time robbed that bit. There were also models created for older versions of various characters, including one for Cindy which was nowhere near as cringe-inducing. You'd meet your bros one-by-one. I mean, Talcott practically says all of the above to you in-game, so that's not too wild to imagine having been a thing.



     

    The traintrack area/Tenebrae was probably cut, but who knows what was going to be there? I don't think that there's enough remaining in-game content to imagine what it was going to be, so maybe they could use it for some DLC stuff or whatever.

     

    For the second:

     

    I've seen a comment from the main director (Nomura?) saying that the campfire scene is supposed to be some kind of "afterlife" reunion for da boys, now able to kick back and fuck getting up at 6.

    It is odd the amount of people in this thread trying to tell us all how deluded we are for enjoying this game, some have even actually played it and admitted to enjoying it themselves.

     

    Bizarre.

     

    Nice meltdown

    Ah I wondered why it looked so small! That makes sense then if it was at the Experience. Fair play, looks pretty good for an Escape Room thing. 

     

    Any idea how it did viewing figures wise? I'd watch it if it was a series but they should #bringbackthewater if they get a proper series budget.

     

    I heard that the special was recorded at the Experience place in London, and that a proper place for a running TV series is being built at the old Granada Studio Tours in Manchester.

    The 2nd mainline Destiny game coming to PC shouldn't be that unexpected, it was originally planned to be a 3 platform game series once their original exclusivity deal for Microsoft platforms had run out, which then clearly changed to be more of a Sony-preferential deal instead.

     

    God all fucking mighty

    Why is it the Omnigul strike and not any of the others that people are grinding?  I'm assuming there are ways of getting through it quickly...?

     

    Sheer wealth of mobs generally, I presume.

  7. Okay, let's be a little objective (if such a thing is remotely tolerable to you): the film has made a ton of bank for Warner, so they've signed one of the leads to a multi film deal -- hardly a new thing in this day and age -- including more films with the same character. And you're telling me that a response such as the one above isn't irrational. Why the spite?

     

    "How dare Chris Evans sign up to do more Marvel films, the spec of shit" said nobody ever.

  8. Star Trek: Into Darkness?
     

     

    Later in the film, it's said that Khan and his crew had been placed into special cryostasis pods, themselves initially used to make up for the lack of FTL travel amongst the universe. However, it's also said that the crew had been frozen for 300 years, and the film takes place in 2259. That's before considering the tech that must have been used to create Khan (advanced regeneration, super strength and speed etc), that surely existed however many years before his birth.

     

    I'd also say that CA: The First Avenger is a spin on this sort of thing.

     

     

    We are effectively seeing super-advanced tech being created in front of us whilst the film is set in the past, be it hokey flying cars, tesseract-powered laser guns and the super-solider serum itself.

    • Yooka-Laylee, because I've been after this sort of thing for a long time. Never got to try the playbox due to a lack of system requirements (i.e. a PC).
    • Amplitude, because I liked the old ones. It was mostly alright, but significantly let down by some atrocious bonus tracks and a lack of commercial artist input, not to mention no chance of DLC.
    • The Magical Realms of Tír na nÓg: Escape from Necron 7 - Revenge of Cuchulainn: The Official Game of the Movie - Chapter 2 of the Hoopz Barkley SaGa (aka Barkley 2), because the first was probably one of the 6 JRPGs I could safely say was ever any good. Still not out, cuh.

    Why on earth were you doing that?

     

    I was trying to get to a checkpoint marked from space, which curiously kept getting further away the closer I tried flying to it. So I got out, and bobbed for fucking ages on the water to get to the checkpoint, which ended up being a waste of time.

    People on Neogaf getting a refund after 50 hours of gameplay. That shouldn't be on.

     

    Aside from the fact that the game explicitly does not feature elements advertised for several years, the "movement" of the game is so incredibly slow that high playing times of few or no discoveries is not a surprise. As a weird aside, I remember being told how old Star Wars game KOTOR opened up after 17 hours, which to me is unforgiveable.

     

    I think I've spent about 9 hours on it so far, and haven't touched it since (been too tired to challenge for a refund on PSN); at least one of those hours was spent bobbing forwards on a surface of water. That isn't fun.

    Well Suicide Squad made more money on its opening weekend in the UK than it did in all of South America, so if cultural appropriation is their awesome non-niche strategy for box office $$$, they'd probably be better off calling the film The Rotter Gang and making them all swan around in top hats whilst quaffing cups of Earl Grey tea. 

     

    Uh, there's a huge S.American/C.American population in the southern states of N.America? It's a really big country.

    Yeah I'm not sure where Liquid Myth copy and pasted that from, but I recall Suicide Squad got pulled from cinema chains in Mexico because WB tried to alter the contract last minute, so another stellar strategy from them there.

     

    Yes, the very possibility that I aggregated the info myself is completely fucking bewildering. I don't appreciate being called stupid just because I remembered a thing from something I read years ago.

     

    On-topic, it was one of the big cinema chains yes, but see above for something more relevant. If anything, it's much more affected by the ban in China.
