  1. Finished it this morning, having enjoyed it a lot more by knocking the difficulty down for bosses. It was pretty good overall, beautiful looking and a nice, touching little story. Astonishing really given the fact it was the studio’s first game. The boss difficulty felt like a misstep to me, story mode made them too easy but normal difficulty was too brutal for this type of game. It was really my only complaint, everything else was at least good and some of the puzzles and set pieces were genuinely very good. And I loved the size of the game, it was really refreshing to play an “open world” game that felt tight and lean rather than padded out and bloated. Would love a sequel with a bit more balance in the difficulty spikes, providing a good rather than massive challenge.
  2. Clearly played too much Flight Simulator 2020. The whole start of that video I’m just thinking “that’s very irresponsible flying, why are they not following proper departure rules” FH5 looks great though. Dubious piloting aside
  3. The £13 I spent on a monthly sub to play this is unlikely to extend. It’s an OK game but I’m already suffering a bit with too much to do and knowing I’ll never bother playing through until the end Will likely get a few weeks enjoyment then cancel. Might try this other Riders Republic thing later in Oct too too see if it’s up to much.
  4. It’s more a time thing, I’m generally a normal difficulty kind of person, and usually enjoy a bit of challenge. This for me was a nice distraction game from flying in MSFS, and the difficulty spikes just ruin it for me - I don’t give a fuck about this “git gud” mentality, I’m playing to have fun. Anyway drop the difficulty I will.
  5. Played for a couple of hours on thurs no problems but very crashy today. Irritating. Really enjoyed just burning down a tobacco farm though. The fire is very satisfying in this
  6. So this HD texture pack doesn’t work on a 3080 at 4K right? Has anyone tried it?
  7. It’s weird though, the not bosses are a piece of piss. The dark souls hardness bosses would be fine if the controls were beautifully poised, but let’s face it they’re not ideal. Story mode it is
  8. I’ve got to a shrine guardian or something, and I think I’m out. Can’t get close to him and having looked at a couple of vids it would appear things get a lot harder. Instantly massively put me off.
  9. If you love far cry 4/5/primal/the other one after 5 and you want some more, yes
  10. Well I cracked. Downloaded, so I’m going in…..
  11. Quite fancy this. Thinking a cheeky month on Ubi+ is prob better than buying it full whack, is that a thing?
  12. Well this is rather delightful. Beautiful visuals aside, it just has a very warm heart and a really nice vibe. I guess I’ve starting to get in to the game proper now, and just had my first actually tough battle (just after getting the bow) but it’s just… bloody lovely to play. Must admit I’m a bit baffled by this getting a significantly less glowing review than Sable from EG, because this for my money is a vastly more enjoyable experience. Horses for courses I guess
  13. Yeah I think I feel the same, it seems ok but the actual experience of playing is not very engaging; keep getting stuck on scenery, the jumping/climbing is clunky, and your little speeder bike thing is slow and sluggish. It looked a bit like something in the vein of journey that I’d love but it’s just very uninteresting to play. Going to try Kena instead I think.
  14. Had similar controller weirdness on PC but it seemed to resolve itself and have since had no problems. Ive played through the first section (make your macguffin etc) and so far it’s a bit underwhelming but quite intriguing. I’ll put it down to boring tutorial syndrome and crack on over the weekend.
  15. Alas no PS5. I’d be playing on PC
  16. Really fancy this, just really conflicted given I can have it free in a year. Probably with better performance too. But then again, I am an impatient idiot. So I’ll probably buy it later.
  17. As predicted I have made it past the first couple of dungeons, and then hit a difficulty wall I can’t dent. I was loving this but I’ve gone a couple of weeks without playing now so trying to go back is proving painful. Gutted, was really enjoying it.
  18. Its an issue with resolution scaling it seems. On PC I’m running at native 4K so don’t have it, but people running at above or below that are seeing the same issue. Hot fix incoming apparently.
  19. World Update 6 seems rock solid thus far, and the new bush trips look like they’ll be a treat. The precaching of off screen scenery has really made a difference too. Oh and no ATC altitude issues any more
  20. Against my better judgement and the certainty this is bound to be another by the numbers, utterly unsurprising in any way open world slog…. I find myself somewhat intrigued. I do love a good open world slog. I just doubt this will be a good one. It will pass. Hopefully
  21. Virginia. Played and really enjoyed The Last Stop recently, and figuring this was a) by the same people and b) pretty well received, oh and c) could be another one for my fiancé and I to play through together, grabbed this for £1.70 off steam We both fucking hated it. Lasted about ten minutes but it’s horrible IMO. Really weird vibe, cuts every five seconds. Just felt an utterly uninteresting start. We went back to Netflix.
  22. Fucking hell. Impressive lack of projectile vomiting and screaming.
  23. Saw this pop up for sale on Steam so decided to pick it up for a second play through. It looks VERY nice running at 4K/120fps I must say. Already totally absorbed by it all over again
  24. @Nate Dogg III finally hit the pay button yesterday, I’ve been thoroughly enjoying these landing. You seem to have hit the timing nicely as they always surprise me, and seem to hit just as I’m wrapping up work so typically don’t sit in my inbox for long. The UX for signing up for the premium tier isn’t super intuitive - I looked a few days ago but it just showed me a sign up form and I was a bit “I’ve already signed up, where do I pay?”. Not sure if that can be signposted a little better
  25. I kind of like them, although not super fussed about accumulating they’re a nice little indicator of progression, and like you say can offer incentives to try things off the beaten track. I don’t ever feel the need to grind or do things I don’t enjoy to get them though.
