  1. Absolutely mad the third one of these isn't playable on modern consoles. It's an absolute classic that's sort of lost unless you have a PC.
  2. Tommy Vercetti was 35 in Vice City. If this is modern day he would be at the very least in his 70’s by the time this comes out. I think he’d probably be too old for this shit.
  3. Another series where characters actually learn and grow in meaningful ways which ties into the plot and doesn't swerve last minute into a big CGI fight would be nice. I thought Loki was really refreshing in that it introduced two characters to us in Loki and Silvie, developed them over six episodes and then gave them an ultimatum that genuinely challenged both of them and that would have been settled in less than a second if it had given it to them at the start of episode one. It wasn't perfect, it was definitely a bit too "tell don't show" at times and it occasionally felt a little rushed in places but that's 1000 times better than the alternative. There's always people in these threads saying things like "well that was a filler episode" and "that didn't move the plot on at all 3/10" but as long as everything's tied into developing the characters and having them influence the plot later down the line then I'm all good with whatever they do in season 2. I really like twisty/timey time travel stuff that doesn't always stack up to thinking as long as it rattles along at a good pace and develops it's characters as it goes and Loki season 1 did that really well. So they can sort of do anything with season 2 for me as long as that's the case again.
  4. Tom cruise doesn't write scripts. For fucks sake.
  5. I think they’ve already said it’s less open than that. A few big sandboxes rather than one huge open world.
  6. Yeah it's a tenner for the upgrade but you also get all the extra stuff in there that sounds pretty cool. I got about twenty hours into this and then moved on to something else, hopefully I can just jump back in and enjoy all of the old and new stuff without it ruining things too much. It was a very, very special experience that I can't wait to get back into!
  7. I'm pretty sure it only saves that stuff once you've finished a run. I've had a crash on rest mode and lost a pretty key item that I then had to find again. They should probably just put a save mode in, eh?
  8. I've tried a couple of times to get into the Yakuza games. I really liked the world and was a fan of Kiryu but the combat just never properly clicked with me and there seemed to be a lot of it. When they announced it was switching to JRPG my ears pricked up, I'm a big fan of the genre and maybe this could see me through the bits of 0 that just didn't click with me personally? But it didn't. Because I'd already fallen head over heels in love with the game before the combat properly started. Because of Ichiban. I'm only at the start of chapter 3 but he's just such an utterly brilliant creation that I'd play though any old shit to see more of his adventures. I was in a proper funk last night after a mixture of the football and work, just sort of sitting there jumping between Netflix shows I wasn't that interested in. I chucked this on again and all of that went out of the window and I was grinning from ear to ear for a good two hours. The storytelling is so good. I did several big laughs at the end of chapter 2, not because it was funny, just because it was so bloody good. I can't wait to get more stuck in tonight, I think I might be a Yakuza fan everyone!
  9. Wait there are still people playing Halo 5 online?
  10. So as we all know, Returnal is in the top spot for game of the year and is one of the best videogames ever probably. A mate of mine is having an absolutely terrible time in biome 1 and that seems so long ago that I've forgotten a few details. He's not got into the house yet, you can do that before beating Phrike right? I'm sure I needed an astronaut to get through it. Any other tips for good upgrades in Biome 1? I've told him to focus on health but there are definitely excellent items you get later that he doesn't have access to so it's quite difficult to offer tips!
  11. I absolutely love waggle in games and really liked Skyward Sword, but the motion plus wasn't perfect. Maybe it was my setup back then but it frequently messed me up as I played and it soured me on the game a bit.
  12. Fuck this. All you have to do is read literally anything said by any of the players or the manager and that should be out of the window immediately. The only very very small shred I have of being proud of being English was in that team last night. They're a progressive, good bunch of lads that continued to stand up for what they believed in in the face of being booed by a load of racist fuckwit fans before every match. That Engurland arsehole culture exists in every facet of this country, and it's really nice to see something with an England badge on it you can be genuinely proud of.
  13. If you think we're xenophobic you should see all the awful other cultures.
  14. Why would it be free to play?
