    I'm so glad Ken fired most of his team so that he could start afresh and move away from Bioshock in order to create this startling original new title.

     

    I feel like I'm going insane that nobody remembers this and still treats Ken Levine with this amazing reverence.

  2. They should just build it all around Pattinsons The Batman. That movie was actually good.

     

    I haven't looked on twitter but I assume the Snyder Cult are all having full blown meltdowns.

     

  3. Also, people probably didn't hear it because the amount of people who watch giant bomb is shockingly small these days for a supposedly major site.

     

    It's not uncommon for his show to get 0 comments. A far cry from the heyday of people shouting "First" in the comments.

    Anyone seen Troll? Worth watching?

     

    It's alright. Its literally just Norwegian Godzilla.

     

    I mean, the first half an hour or so of the film is almost beat for beat the same as Godzilla 1998. It's quite impressive how shameless it is.

  5. Making use of my two days off work! :lol:

     

    01/12 - Xenoblade Chronicles 3

     

    This one took a while! Loved all the systems and gameplay. The plot, like a lot of JRPG stuff, gets a little lost in the weeds towards the end with so much stuff being thrown at you, with cut scenes that can sometimes approach Kojima-length. But I enjoyed my time with these characters, so much so I picked up the Expansion Pass. Maybe now it's time to revisit and finally complete XC1.

    Credits have rolled. What a game. Loved the evolution of the Kratos character over the years, from someone I grew to absolutely detest in God of War 3 to what he is in Ragnarok. The only blemish on this otherwise fine game would be a rather lengthy, talky bit with Atreus midway through. That's all I'll say, but if you've played the game then you'll know what I'm talking about. Now to mop up some trophies....

  7. 12/11 - Megaman: Maverick Hunter X (PSP)

     

    Mega Man X is one of those games I try to get a playthrough done once a year because I love it so. Decided to mix things up this time though by digging out my old PSP and grabbing a copy of the X remake. I've played it before many years ago and find it to be a worthy remake, with some nice new additions and some unfortunate technical limitations. Unfortunately by making it look so pretty and filling the screen with enemies, it means the framerate grinds to a halt during some hectic sections. 

     

    I do however like the remixed level designs and additions to the story, including a short anime prequel movie that I believe is also included in the X Collection on consoles. Shame that this has been one of those games that has never been set free from the PSP/Vita.

  8. And in further "downfall of Giantbomb news".

     

    Check out the first comment on the Sonic Frontiers quick look.

    An affiliate link for money off the game in question. So more uses of the code means more money for GB/fandom. Which then makes you wonder if they're being truthful or saying more positive things in order to get more money in.

     

    This is the exactly opposite of what Gerstmann envisioned when starting Giantbomb.

  9. 06/11 - Bayonetta 3

     

    I have more thoughts in the dedicated thread, but in short. One of the most disappointing games in recent years. Maybe since the Halo 2 campaign? It's certainly a massive step down from Bayo 1 and 2. Awful plot, the new mechanics are bad, and it just felt messy. When you're left to just play as Bayonetta and do cool stuff it's okay, but those moments are few and far between.

     

    A generous 5/10.

  10. It is finished. Wow that was a slog. Nonsensical plot, terrible new characters and mechanics. And the cut scenes are just messy. It's probably not a good idea to have excessive particle effects on screen, coupled that with shaky cam and constant cuts like it's a Michael Bay film, results in some headache inducing nonsense. And I loved Bayonetta 1 and 2.

     

    Some spoilers regarding gameplay mechanics that come later in  the game:

    Spoiler

    I was excited for a big Kaiji fight. Then it's revealed to be a rock, paper, scissors game? What is this, fucking Alex Kidd? When it's just Bayonetts fights then it's pretty good. Even though a lot of the fights just devolved into stand back, summon monster and squint at the screen as you mash a button till everything falls down. 

     

     

    Regarding the story and ending:

     

    Spoiler

    If Viola was my daughter I'd prefer to go to hell as well to be honest.

     

    As it was pointed out previously in the thread, nothing made sense. By the end I was just confused as to what anyones motivation was. It also made me laugh how it starts exactly like Multiverse of Madness and then ends like No Way Home. 

     

  11. Okay. It's come to the point where I'm just mainlining this and not doing much exploring because fuck it. It's unbelievably frustrating. Maybe I'm misremembering but I felt like the first two games were better at signposting when an enemy is about to attack, and didn't have as many enemy's just battering you from off screen.

     

    A lot of the fights I'm squinting at the screen as I use my summon to batter something in the distance. If this is the thing they took from Scalebound then thank fuck that game was cancelled.

     

    Maybe I'll play Astral Chain. That's supposed to be top tier Platinum right?
