  1. What? This is a great game and the combat is really fun and visceral, always has been. Something about Last of Us/ND just inspires the laziest of hot takes.
  2. This looks incredible.
  3. Super Arcade Football is ok. I was surprised so many people on this forum were into it to be honest. It is a little shot of nostalgia for the Sensi/Kick-Off era of football games, but I don't think it is very interesting beyond that.
  4. 1. The Wire 2. Twin Peaks: The Return 3. The Leftovers 4. The Expanse 5. The Power of Nightmares 6. True Detective (Season 1 only) 7. Generation Kill 8. Can't Get You Out of My Head 9. Chernobyl 10. One Punch Man 11. Watchmen 12. The Vietnam War 13. Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing 14. Stath Lets Flats 15. She-Ra and the Princesses of Power 16. Sunderland 'Til I Die 17. Years and Years 18. Evil Genius 19. Once Upon a Time in Iraq 20. American Crime Story Edit: ok so I got to 20. Some caveats though. I feel uncomfortable putting True Detective in there, I didn't want to include something I didn't enjoy from beginning to end, but I did enjoy Season 1 so much. Similarly American Crime Story I loved the first 2 seasons, I have not seen the third season. It is tough to come up with 20 honestly. Stuff I really enjoyed one season of (True Detective, American Crime Story), stuff I enjoyed well enough but never finished (Breaking Bad, Steven Universe), stuff that really jumped the shark (Lost, The Walking Dead), stuff that I enjoyed a lot but is it really good enough to be up there for goat contention? (Brooklyn 99, Bosch). For all that it has been the "Golden Age" of television there are very few shows that I didn't either get bored of or have no desire to ever rewatch. So, so many shows end terribly as well.
  5. Well deserved England call up for Jarrod Bowen. God, I hope we manage to hold on to him.
  6. Mechanically they are both non-combat science fiction RPGs with skill checks to advance quest lines. Narratively and tonally they are very different, so it depends really on why exactly you didn't enjoy Disco Elysium.
  7. Fuuuuuck, I forgot about God Hand. And Disco Elysium to a lesser extent. Oh well not mucking about with the list now.
  8. I really enjoyed Citizen Sleeper, short, nicely written non-combat science fiction RPG that mechanically is reminiscent of Disco Elysium. On Gamepass. Bounced off Loop Hero (addictive up to beating first boss then quickly gets too repetitive); Tunic (looks great but found combat and perspective a bit annoying); and Chinatown Detective Agency (not having "googling the puzzle answers on my phone" as an actual gameplay mechanic, sorry no). Might finally try Nonary Games next.
  9. Chinatown Detective Agency - got as far as the game asking me to google the answer to a puzzle and immediately uninstalled. I play games to not waste time on my phone, thanks.
  10. You do yeah, you can continue from the last save before the credits rolled.
  11. Not finished yet but I'm really enjoying it. I liked In Other Waters as well by the same developer. Great science fiction writing.
  12. I've been playing Loop Hero on Switch which is a decent deck-builder rogue-like (although not in the same tier as Slay the Spire). But I'm also 25 hours into my second Elden Ring playthrough...
  13. You mean "Fez (video game)" ? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fez_(video_game) ?? I'm so confused.
  14. 1. Elden Ring 2. Bloodborne 3. Return of the Obra Dinn 4. Dragon Quest XI 5. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 6. Animal Crossing: New Horizons 7. Slay the Spire 8. Dark Souls 9. The Last of Us 10. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain 11. Mass Effect 2 12. Divinity: Original Sin 13. Persona 5 14. Monster Hunter Rise 15. XCOM: Enemy Unknown 16. Metroid Prime 17. Fez (video game) 18. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 19. Super Mario Galaxy 20. Yakuza: Like a Dragon Thoughts and reflections:
  15. You never have to do this, what.
  16. Also do you actually meet the minimum stat requirements for your weapon? Because if you don't the damage will be dogshit no matter how many smithing stones you stick on it.
  17. He should just get a Switch, then he can sit with his family inanely chatting over films AND play videogames. Job done.
  18. The 3 at the back worked well against Chelsea I thought, although Masuaku remains an absolute danger. Stick Fornals in there maybe.
  19. I feel ill and kick-off is 5 hours away. Do supporters of clubs who are routinely challenging at the business end of competitions feel like this every season? Probably not I'm guessing. Not sure I can get used to it though.
  20. Absolutely, you'd think we were discussing war crimes rather than the multiplayer options in a video game the way some people go on.
  21. It is a very easy platinum, much easier than the earlier games. You don't even need to get all the endings or engage in any multiplayer.
  22. I think it is an interesting point you make about Demons Souls. The fear that some people have I think is that these are such ineffable, enigmatic games - From managed to somehow bottle lightning whilst apparently breaking a lot of sacrosanct game design principles - that it is very hard to put your finger on exactly what makes them so special and unique and tinkering with them too much might mean you lose that. Now again I don't say that because I necessarily agree (my hot take is that From should stop making these games now actually, sequels will only be diminishing returns, and they should try their hand at something new), but I think that is closer to understanding why Souls fans get defensive on difficulty, it isn't solely or predominately because of a "git gud" mentality, it is mainly because they fear you might accidentally break a winning formula.
