  1. He also is weak to the Crash Bombs.
  2. Free starter pack for Antstream now on Epic, as well as insecure micro-penis simulator The Hunter: Call of the Wild.
  3. Ah yes, not sure if that's more or less mental when it's on something like Game Pass where you might just be having a cursory glance at a game. Downloaded two Tom Clancy games on XGP and deleted them after the account page popped up. If that page wasn't there, there's a chance I may well have enjoyed the games and bought more.
  4. God I wish I could get over my VR motion sickness. What little I could stomach of RE4 in full motion, I adored.
  5. Got about forty hours into Ys VIII before accidentally discovering that holding the dash button allows you to run. I'd been cramping my hands up jump-dashing everywhere.
  6. Super Mario 35, of all things. I am very much not a fan of online multiplayer (a bit of overwatch on rate occasions, and that's it) but having liked the concept of Tetris 99 I was really on board for this, especially considering I'm over 30 and so have a feel and understanding for the physics and mechanics of SMB that border on mastery of the Force, something the Fortnite generation would never understand. It totally lived up to it. It played perfectly, and I dunno what the matchmaking was programmed like but it was always excitingly close. Then of course Nintendo got rid of it because they're fucking demented.
  7. Good point. I guess it's more like that old acquaintance who you cross the road to avoid before they see you.
  8. I've not played many rogue likes, but they are very hit and miss for me and I'm not sure why. Somehow I didn't rate Dead Cells but roared through Rogue Legacy. Oh, another that just hit me: level up "tutorials" that force you to buy something/spend points on particular thing. I don't care if the floaty hand is hovering over "upgrade basic damage 2%" and a text box is saying "let's go ahead and upgrade this now", I want to buy the life bar upgrade.
  9. - Unskippable intros, and intro/first hours or so that are a big ol slog. I like FFX and adore FFIX but if I don't have a go-to save ready at Kilika or the just after the Evil Forest respectively, I find it very hard to muster up the attention span to start from scratch. - Related, too many cutscenes. I love what I've played of Valkyria Chronicles, but it's basically a visual novel with a strategy side game tacked on - Games that rely on memes. - Games (usually indie) that have stupid lololol run on titles. - I was quite taken by the retraux movement when it first started, but these days any nes or amiga-looking (I think many of the latter are trying to be SNES but not getting it) need to be very very good to get more than an eye roll from me. - Games that base their whole design around jump scares. Being startled is not the same as being frightened. - Microtransactions (such a parody-level corporate America term) - While I acknowledge that a lot of this is down to me, any game that gets too much blind hype. It's not a hipster thing, just a mix of getting sick of the sound of it and it being so blindly hyped up that there's no way it can live up to it. I remember a while back, someone's signature here was just "WATCH BREAKING BAD WATCH BREAKING BAD WATCH BREAKING BAD WATCH BREAKING BAD". However correct stuff that like might be, it just puts me off, at least for a while. - Driving games that have progression but totally undermine it by both adjusting difficulty of ai to scale to your current car, and just pelting dozens of top end hypercars at you for virtually no effort. Looking at you, Forza Horizon 4. Bring back GT2. - Lists
  10. FYI Vampire's Kiss is like molasses but I believe the other region/s run a bit faster. Also, do you actually unlock anything when you clear all the games? Those crowns in the main menu are taunting me.
  11. Modern gaming loves: - Racing - Shooting - Online play - Co-op So where in the name of fuck is my new Chase HQ!?
  12. The upcoming AEW game is going to basically be this, they got the original bloke in and during the announcement they were literally waving a no mercy cartridge around talking about how ace it is and how they want another game like it
  13. It's fairly impressive how Geoff has basically privatised and monopolised videogame news, and moreso how he's using it to get himself put in games. I mean, what the fuck does he do other than have the cold dead eyes of a killer? What next, the regional manager from his favourite Subway in Smash? The fucker is the antithesis of fun.
  14. As I remember, this whole concept is just the final bit of the first Life is Strange stretched into a full game. But not as good.
  15. They get em off some of the many cameras once they're into the network. Another plus one for the awesome soundtrack. I often wonder if the Shinra theme from FFVII was inspired by this.
  16. Are there any decent modern slashers doing the rounds? Most popular horror films these days tend to go all disturbing and psychological. I don't want to have to book a therapy session.
  17. I just want the game remastered so I can play ooooooon!
  18. I really want to see the two chaps on the right play young Liu Kang and Shang Tsung.
  19. I totally expected some debris to fall from the sky and splat 'em, so that was a nice surprise.
  20. It's a weird thing this, I liked it in parts but I'm so tired of the "Whedon approach" (to stories, not how he physically approaches women according to reports). Not every emotional scene needs a daft "witty" buffy-esque exchange shoehorned into it. There are other tropes too, like that one in particular irking me. Not 'cause I gave a shit about the character, but just because it's the kind of thing I've seen so many times before. That stuff also clashed pretty badly with the too, which felt like it was written by someone else entirely. Oh and also, yeah, okay, like it was clearly leading up to? Anyway, yes, I'm not tearing it apart, I did enjoy it. The rat was best character though. Idris won me over after three years of Sky Go adverts being shoved through my brain whenever visiting family, and Cena was surprisingly good in both comedy and serious parts. Harley as always is great but I think it's time to make her less ditzy now. Said it before, I'll say it again: Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman is retroactively the best Harley adaptation. BTW what's the point of Verhoevenning all the gore if you're just gonna CGI it?
  21. Yeah he should probably have made a joke about that.
