  1. I am absolutely loving this. Will definitely need to play it through again as I'm about half way I think (just on the Collapsed Expressway) and only just getting to grips with the battle system. I just want to comment on how amazing the music is though. I was a bit sceptical initially as often when music is remade it looses some aspect of what made it so great in the first place. For example the OSTs for the FF remakes on the DS are nowhere near as good as the originals in my opinion. With this score though it's like it's exactly the same, but also not. It sounds so new and fresh y
  2. That museum "cutscene" is one of my favourite parts of the game. For me, it's a rare moment of (relative) tranquility amongst all the despair and chaos. The chemistry between Joel and Ellie is wonderful and the scene is made more impactful because we know what happens to the characters and their relationship afterwards. I'm currently playing TLOU2 for the third time (on grounded) and still not tired of it. It's such a different game on grounded too, never truly appreciated the usefulness of bricks and bottles until now. About the gameplay loop, maybe I'm weird but I j
  3. Currently playing this for the first time (on PS Now) and loving it. The music, characters and visuals have pulled me right in and can't wait until work's over so I can play it again. Playing this in the evenings with a couple of glasses of red, with the rain/snow beating against the windows has just been perfect!
  4. Have to admit I skipped through quite quickly due to the awful functionality but I think that list is missing a lot tbh. No grime, no dubstep (early stuff e.g. Skream/Benga/Mala - they created an entire new sound, genre and subculture), no trap (surprising given its influence on modern day pop music), no sub-genres of heavy metal (how are there no pioneers of black and death metal there?). Nice to see more hip-hop, there are some great choices there but they are safe choices. No Killer Mike. No Tyler the Creator/Odd Future/JPEGMAFIA for example who have challenged what hip-hop can be about wit
  5. Well sorry if I misunderstood but you said (and have now changed) that it would be a choice between civic duty and love. Which is gross. Apologies for my misreading of your incredible and grown up narrative which you changed after I replied to it.
  6. Wtf that sounds awful. Pretty much the first time we have a gay protagonist in a mainstream video game and you want to make it so that the only way she can save the world and have a purpose is to forget all that and be straight?
  7. That's been one of my favourite moments in the game so far, my heart was genuinely racing!
  8. Totally agree, and for me as well I love thinking about the person whose flat/room/office/shop I'm scavenging. Naughty Dog have put so much effort into building people's personalities (who you don't even get to meet) through the furniture, posters on the walls, notes, etc. in every building. The world truly feels lived in and I love exploring every part of it. Like you say, every nook and cranny has something to offer.
  9. Spoiler about an encounter during day 2 (after Hillcrest):
  10. Sounds similar to my first play through a couple of years ago as well. Now I've nearly completed Kiwami 2 and looking forward to the next one, though I am enjoying taking my time. I couldn't stop playing 0 and I couldn't stop talking about it to people either. Friends, family, colleagues, etc. I just couldn't keep my mouth shut about all the bizarre sub stories, mini games and fascinating characters. None of them even like gaming and I still get asked occasionally whether I still play that crazy Japanese gangster game series and has anything else completely insane happened.
  11. Probably late to the party with this one but just turned on the Barca match and they have a virtual crowd (that looks like it's from FIFA 98!). Have other leagues been doing this as well or is it just La Liga? I watched the first round of Bundesliga matches after the restart and they didn't have it. Not sure what's weirder, this or the empty stadiums!
  12. This is weird. It's just humans giving opinions. Why does it matter where they're from?
  13. Currently sitting at 95-96 on Metacritic. Gonna make a nice pot of coffee and give some of these reviews a read!
  14. Just realised that this is the first physical copy of a game I've preordered in years. Due to financial issues (usually I just wait and buy in sales), being too busy or lack of interest I haven't bought a game on day one since Skyrim I think, and that was digital. I genuinely think the last time I've been expecting a physical copy of a game through my door on launch day was The Wind Waker! I'm so excited and feel like a kid again.
  15. That was great. I am so pumped for the 19th!
