  1. I think this is the primary challenge of the internet age. Until 10 years ago or so, the main problem you had if you enjoyed a particular form of media (whether it be games, books, films, music or anything else along those lines) was how to track down more of the stuff you knew you liked. Christ, I can remember as a teenager spending literally years reading about some records, and imagining what they were like, before I finally got the chance to hear them. But now, the internet effectively dumps the human race's entire creative output, present and historical, in your lap and says "
  2. I feel like a previously unknown venn diagram of Souls-players and Tory-voters has suddenly been revealed.
  3. So this was me a week or two ago. I’ve now done 1–1, 1-2, all of world 2, 3-1, 4-1 and 5-1. FromSoftware, you bastards!
  4. No crashes, but I have had a couple of weird bugs in Spider-Man:MM, where I've had to restart a mission to get it to recognise progress. I suspect that game is generally a bit unreliable at the moment, and could be a cause of quite a few of the issues people are seeing.
  5. I've finished Dark Souls and Bloodborne, but I think this might be a step too far for me. I love exploring the world, gradually working out where to go, edging cautiously forward, and the thrill of opening up a new area. And I'm happy to die repeatedly to a boss if I can almost instantly try again. But the long runs to the bosses in both 1-2 and 2-1 can absolutely get to fuck. It's inexcusable to waste the player's time like that, and no argument will convince me otherwise.
  6. I thought it was that there'd be a next-gen patch available at launch, which adds a little bit of shinies, but the full next-gen version (which will also be available as a free download) won't be available until next year?
  7. - Wake up - Check email - A dispatch email from Amazon! Yes! - Click order number in email - Oh.
  8. I remain unconvinced that the major existing IPs will go Xbox-exclusive, because if that was going to happen why wouldn't MS say so now? Console manufacturers are hardly backwards in shouting about their exclusives - I'm sure MS wouldn't be so cagey about the idea of Halo appearing on Playstation, or Sony about Uncharted on Xbox. For instance, here's a member of the Xbox team being unequivocal about Hellblade's exclusivity: If MS want people buying into Xbox or GamePass to get Bethesda games, now is the time to shout their exclusivity from the rooftops, because the prim
  9. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2020-11-17-microsoft-wants-bethesda-games-to-be-either-first-or-better-or-best-on-its-platforms A bit more clarity from Microsoft on what their intentions are, and it sounds like Xbox exclusivity is probably not on the cards:
  10. I've been assuming that the silence around Last of Us 2 is either because there's a PS5 patch due some point next year, that they might push during a fallow period, or because there'll be full-blown remaster, like for the first game. Hopefully the former, but who knows?
  11. Or alternatively, they haven't made a blanket decision and genuinely will decide on a case by case basis. I expect there will be some, maybe even most, Bethesda games that are Xbox exclusive, but I don't see any reason to believe that the odd one won't show up on other platforms. And the interpretation of Microsoft's statements about the situation seem entirely at odds with how statements about exclusivity are normally read. If a publisher says "we're not talking about other platforms right now, but it's definitely out on platform x" the default interpretation is that the game almo
  12. I've pre-ordered because most of my favourite games this gen have been Sony exclusives, and I haven't seen any exclusives from Microsoft that pique my interest. If I couldn't play God of War 2, or the next Naughty Dog game, I'd really feel like I was missing out. Nothing MS has shown makes me feel like that. I get that GamePass is a fantastic deal. There's no denying that. But the reality is, I've been subscribed for the past 12 months and only spent meaningful time with a couple of games on there. Unlike in my 20s, when I'd have eagerly consumed dozens of them, I'm now in a situat
  13. Everyone: "I'm worried Sony are going to go crazy with PS3-style pricing again." Sony: "Actually, it's in the same price range as the Xbox." Everyone: "Well done Sony! So what can you do to compete with Ga—" Sony: "WORK A SECOND JOB TO AFFORD A GAME."
