  1. Yep, West Gardens is a huge difficulty spike. The Chompy guys and flying dickheads can feck off. I did manage to get the icy Dagger though and find a shrine to save at so happy with that. Feels like I'm missing a ranged weapon, would probably make the game to easy though.

    That’s the point though surely, every universe has its own version of those characters so they can bring them in from Netflix/wherever without being beholden to the actual events or storylines that have been shown. Best of all possible worlds (multiverses). 

    Agreed, my guess is these versions of 



    Matt Murdock and Kingpin

    that we have seen in recent MCU are different versions to their Netflix counterparts, even if played by the same actors. Same way we will potentially see Fox-verse stuff like X-Men and Deadpool being introduced.


    Anyway going back on topic, this might be the series to get my daughter into Super Heroes. I'm excited from that aspect (she already picked up the music from Tik Tok being used in the trailer).

  3. So is anything missable quest wise here or can you take it at your own pace and pick and choose when you do things? I'm always conscious of missing something in these games as I am a total completionist (which can mar the experience somewhat, but it's how I play).


    I did like the random 


    Finding my car from the start of the game. I just did some of the missions with the other Nomad lady and was bombing around the outskirts of Night City when the mission popped up.


    It's great getting a car finally, especially seeing as my other one is still in repairs with that bloody Delmaine. I also have Jackie's bike to be fair, which is great for nipping round the map in.


  4. This is bloody brilliant, a proper old school Zelda like. I love the flow of it, wandering around, opening up areas to explore and creating paths.


    Died a handful of times, first was just before getting the sword (Which really makes a difference once you have it). Also a couple of areas I got trounced on which will need to be proper explored later on when a bit more stronger no doubt.

    My impressions of Guardians of the Galaxy is that it’s a really good Marvel themed walking simulator that looks wonderful but unfortunately keeps getting interrupted by a ropey licensed third-person shooter from the early 360 era. When I'm playing it I constantly have the nagging feeling that I’d enjoy the experience more if I could watch an animated CGI film by the same team instead.

    I loved it but will agree that the combat became samey very quickly. The story and quips kept it going for me and it was so easy to pick up and play for an odd half hour it felt genuinely refreshing. 

  6. Well timed @Garwoofoo, I have literally just finished watching the series and can only tell you to keep watching. If you thought series 4 was mad then just wait until the time hopping last series, its bonkers and great in equal measure. It also gets an actual ending, whereas most series just fall over (or get cancelled) this seems to end just at the right time and in a satisfactory way.


    I feel genuinely gutted to have finished it though. I was watching multiple eps in an evening towards the end where I was enjoying it so much. I just hope we do get some follow up in the future, or at least an appearance from the likes of Daisy Yo Yo, Mack and the rest of the gang, even if it is a separate multiverse thing.


    And that damn music is ingrained in my head now!

    It's a rather weird one, the Multiplayer that everyone is ragging on for this game is actually free to play so not Gamepass. I don't think the Campaign (the first part of which is on Gamepass) is actually that bad, if a little generic.


    Whole Crossfire situation is straight up bizarre though (How Remedy came to be involved etc).

  8. I finished Binary Domain the other day. Enjoyable mindless fun blasting robot limbs but christ has it aged badly in the story and dialogue department.


    Terribly Sexist jokes at the expense of the female characters and the whole "people born from robots are not real people" shtick just didn't ring right with me (this was no doubt intentional, just handled poorly). Dan and his mate Bo just come over as complete unlikeable pricks. Hard to believe this is 10 years old, feels older!

    It's more noticeable in some games than others, but yeah other than better overall visuals 60FPS often also controls better. Even if people aren't consciously aware of it - you sometimes see someone post that they don't have a problem with 30 but are surprised that their scores on some old FPS boosted Xbox game are suddenly a lot better or that the game feels/is easier.


    At the end of the day it's still a matter of preference, but it's a good idea when comparing the two visual modes in any game to also take note of how the controls feel. Like Linneman says the Forza team did an excellent job of making 30 look and feel good - but they're a notable exception.

    I'm definitely in the performance over quality camp and input lag is the main culprit for me. Recent examples I have tried such as Avengers, Watchdogs Legion and Control UE have abysmal input lag in quality mode and I much prefer the silky smoothness of 60fps over some nice reflections. Cyberpunk will be no different for me.

    I've just started playing this. I'm not overly familiar with London geography, so a lot of stuff doesn't feel wrong as it would for London residents. I find it weird playing an open world game with roundabouts and box junctions. Sometimes, the game looks really bland. And then you hit a more run down area with loads of graffiti, and it looks quite nice.

    Do yourself a favour and buy the DLC with Aiden and Wrench. Wrench alone makes the game a better experience with his custom drone you can infiltrate anything with.

    I'm still working through the first series myself and it's not as bad as I remembered it to be. Just got to the bit where


      Reveal hidden contents

    Coulson is kidnapped by the Centipede guys who are trying to find out what happened when he "died".


    One thing I remember with this when it was on TV (Channel 4?) was that it had a massive season break half way through which ruined all momentum at the time. I dont think I went back to it afterwards. Defo works better binge watching back to back.

    Well, one year later and I am finally onto the final season. I got bored around Series 2 (which is where I got bored during original airing) but picked it up again around Xmas and, hells bells, what a show!


    I would say, series 3 onwards it really picks up pace with the Agent Ward Hydra/Inhuman alien plot. Then the Ghost Rider/Darkhold story followed by the Matrix inspired Network "Agents of Hydra". Then we get the future space stuff (season 5 was nuts, just so much going on) before heading back to the present and more craziness in space with Fitz.


    It definitely feels like they went from following the Movie stuff to being forgotten by the wider MCU bosses and having freedom to to their own thing (which makes for a far better series). I really hope this is followed up in future MCU, although it sounds like it's longer deemed Canon which would be a crying shame.

    Yes, with a caveat. Things like the Forzas will drop off as licences for cars expire.

    Yep, the only First Party title to have dropped off so far was Forza Motorsport 7 when it was delisted last year. I can see Horizon 4 at some point, along with the Disney titles.


    I do wonder at some of the stuff MS have published but don't own. The likes of Ryse, Sunset Overdrive etc. Would assume these may drop off the service at some point.

    I really recommend firewatch. Short and really nice. 




    100%, great game, the feeling of isolation is brilliantly captured, as is the story and the mystery you uncover. It was one of my first experiences of a "walking sim" and with the exception of Edith Finch, I don't think it's been topped.

  14. Lake is a nice easy experience although the postman element gets a bit repetitive but I suppose it's replicating the real thing.


    Achievements are easy to get, just save after doing the last post round (but before you finish the day) so as you can reload to go through each of the three endings/achievements without having to do another post round each time!


    The Gunk next!
