  1. The game everyone knows is best: Shenmue The actual best game: Shenmue 2
  2. Finally finished this, having abandoned it nearer release thanks to the extremely tedious monster bits. With safe mode patched in I was able to just enjoy the story. And what a story! It does an brilliant job of exploring the practical and the ethical sides of digitising and uploading mind-states onto a computer, and sets it all in a suitably grim, haunted environment. Theres some brilliantly fucked up bits, like and it manages to end in a genuinely bittersweet way. Bitter then sweet, in that order. Fucking loved it, bravo.
  3. There's a bit in Terranigma on the SNES where you get the casting vote in a local town election, and if you vote for the communist the town stagnates and you can't finish the game 100%.
  4. Curse of Monkey Island is RIGHT THERE and this is the art style they go with.
  5. ....aaand finished. Nothing epoch-making but very atmospheric and it looks and sounds terrific. I went in expecting a walking sim but it felt more like an old PS2 adventure or something.
  6. Alex is a fucking misery as well. I lost count of the number of times he referenced the end of the world in the last podcast episode
  7. FINALLY got the Infallible Trophy (win 5 games in a row) thanks to the current 'Clan of Yeetus' event. If you get good at launching yourself via the big hammers you can get through the three rounds of each game pretty reliably.
  8. Although you don't play as different characters, it already feels like 'Tales of Night City' to me. The main and side quests all explore aspects of the city through the situations you find yourself in and the people you meet, and the situations THEY find themselves in. The City is far and away the most important character in the game.
  9. I found this Asda own-brand version of Johnny Silverhand sitting on the ground just outside the city:
  10. On PS5 I've had one hard crash and one instance of V riding his bike upside-down and that's it in 20 hours. More importantly I found a ripperdoc who was selling an implant that lets me go invisible for 15 seconds (with a 60 second cooldown) and stealth sudddenly became much easier, even slightly broken in an enjoyable way. I just need to increase my cyber-hacking toolset and I'll basically be the Ghost in the Shell lady in bloke form.
  11. That literally looks like it came from an Xbox 360 game.
  12. Got to the title screen after 8 hours. I managed to avoid spoilers all this time so I didn't realise that...
  13. Count me in as another one who prefers the civilised, 30fps ray-traced mode over the smoother but less atmospheric chav option. Either way this is a massive improvement over the last-gen version; really glad I abandoned it on the One X and waited a year.
