  1. Last week
  2. Metro-Last Light-PS4- A great story based shooter that does everything better than 2033. I've already downloaded Exodus to got straight into it. Although Al has said it's not very good, but we all know what he's like...
  3. Monster Hunter World Iceborne Completed the story mode, refreshing update to the game, takes you back to how you felt first playing it, totally unprepared and undergeared. The monsters are a challenge again, and I haven't even got to Iceborne tempered monsters yet. The handler still needs to die though, cannot stand her, to the point I paid for the Mr X DLC just to glean some enjoyment out of the bits she is in.
  4. Ah sweet, will play it that way, at least until the PS5 comes out then will blow my bonus on it and raid CEX for all the PS4 games I missed out on.
  5. Earlier
  6. As in, you think how amazing it actually is the be immersed so deeply in the Wild West and be free to do almost as you please. It is a privilege, wasn’t that long ago for me I was playing Jet Set Willy! The original was definitely a better ‘game’, and I’ve played that though twice. Still not feeling the urge to play 2 again, would rather see a remaster of the original.
  7. Shrinking horse balls does not make a fun game. I didn’t question the level of detail and the systems; it makes for a great simulator but not a fun game. A privilege to play?
  8. Nah, it was epically awesome I thought that was totally immersive. I think you missed a trick by not doing the side missions as some of those were the best ones. Game is completely jam packed full of detail that constantly leaves you awestruck. Didn’t you notice the shrinking stallion balls in the snow? You make a valid point though, RDR1 was a better game to play. But the sequel is an unbelievable privilege to be able to play.
  9. Red Dead Redemption 2 (PS4) Finally got round to finishing this. I’m done with Rockstar games after this (until I get sucked in by the hype again and am left disappointed again). The controls and physics, which they seem to have in every Rockstar game, are so heavy and slow they make walking around a chore and the combat, as a pseudo cover shooter, mostly awful. The controls are very convoluted, there’s just too much going on. The same button for climbing also picks your hat up off the floor, which is different to picking a gun off the floor. Think I got RSI from tapping the sprint button so much. After taking a break from it I had to spend an age figuring out the controls again. Over the course of a 50-ish hour game, and I skipped all of the side quests, the story doesn’t get going until around the last third. The end and epilogue are pretty good but it’s painful getting there. It takes ages to get anywhere until you unlock fast travel quite a way in, and even then it isn’t straight forward. I think the game is just far too big. You can get stuck in with hunting and fishing and other things, and the world is huge and detailed but it seems that Rockstar have lost sight of what makes a game fun. It’s a Wild West simulator and not a fun game. Apart from the previous Red Dead I don’t think Rockstar made a fun game since the PS2.
  10. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order (PC) Some good ideas with mostly decent execution but that camera can fuck off. Also a worrying trend with games on PC. Pad disconnects, game carries on without pausing. Yakuza 4 (PS4) Still love this series.
  11. God of War-PS4- Wow! After a couple of false starts with this game due to it being so different to all the God of War games that had come before, this game is something else. I couldn't get my head around the changes initially as it wasn't what I was looking for in a God of War game, plus I'm sure something else was distracting me at the time.(Probably Destiny 2...) Anyway this game is a whole lot of Zelda, with a more refined combat system, but with whole lot more gore. There's so much to find, so much to do and I'm going to platinum this at some point in the future for sure, but that backlog waits for no man so I'm moving on to...one of many. TLDR? Play God of War. Halo:CE_Xbone- Seriously fuck this game now. So obtuse in its design. Outdated and the only reason it was fun was co-op with Biggy and that was because we shared the misery. Not his company, because fuck that guy/JK. Metro 2033 Redux-PS4- I've been reading the book(and finished that today too!) so I decided to go back to these games. The story beats are very similar so I'm glad I finished the book first. Anyway the game is really good, if a bit dated but not without some bullshit. It looks ok, but considering it's a remaster it should look better, but then the remaster is 6 years old so... A Plague Tale:Innocence-Bone- Another game pass game, except this one I had my eye on waiting for it to hit sub £20. Luckily I didn't need to wait. Anyway, it's a pretty decent 3rd person adventure, very linear but that's not to it's detriment. What is though is the story in the last few chapters where it completely jumps the shark. It could have done without going where it went. It also informs the ending of the game and kind of spoils the gameplay. Apart from that I thought it was a lot of fun and I'm glad I played it. Worth anyones time for sure, and it only took me about 12 hours to finish.
  12. Aladdin (Master System) The Walking Dead Season 1 (The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series, Xbox One) The Walking Dead Season 2 (The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series, Xbox One) Outer Wilds (Xbox One) I can totally see why this was Giantbomb's GOTY - they created an amazing world, interesting characters and sci fi mystery! Not many here have finished this, but it's worth your time.
  13. It's coming to PC at some point early summer.
  14. Really want to play this, but still bereft of a PS4, waiting for the inevitable price crash on consoles closer to the PS5 launch.
  15. God of War-PS4- Wow! After a couple of false starts with this game due to it being so different to all the God of War games that had come before, this game is something else. I couldn't get my head around the changes initially as it wasn't what I was looking for in a God of War game, plus I'm sure something else was distracting me at the time.(Probably Destiny 2...)

I'm starting the Metro 2034 book tomorrow so I may have Last Light done before the end of the month.
  16. Yeah it's an interesting universe and the first is an important game for kind of standardising how FPS games should be "done" on consoles. And of course the MP was the draw for a big portion of people from 2 onward.
  17. For me it’s because me it does a rare thing and that’s drag me into its universe. Anyway, we’ll up for some coop on the others if your playing.
  18. Been saying this for years. Never got how Halo was practically worshipped.
  19. 5 was beyond average but not much worse than 4. I still think CE plays well from start to finish, I enjoyed 2 more on the remaster than I did first time around as I forgot how massive it was, felt 3 was a bit overrated but still great.
  20. Let's be real, the only Halo game that has a good campaign from beginning to end are Reach and ODST. CE is rubbish after half way, 2 is rubbish the entire way through, 3 is rubbish at the beginning and end, 4 is just ehhhhh. Haven't played 5 but heard similar things.
  21. Just so much wrong with it, the check pointing in co-op games where we had to restart a whole level, glitches on the last level where you have to get out of he warthog and run the last few metres and the ship blows up but doesn't give you enough time to reach safety even though we had more than enough on the clock. Level design is dated, and even the arrows didn't help in some situations. The shooting is still fun, but there's too many frustrations surrounding it now. I can't see me ever playing through it again tbh.
  22. They added arrows on the floor if you played it with remastered graphics. That’s how badly designed that area was originally.
  23. I think they changed up the library to make it less monotonous... maybe something about the lighting to make it more obvious where to go? I dunno.
  24. I still think it plays well, what’s wrong with you? Was it the Library?
  25. Loving this game but am stuck! I am at Dark Bramble... Any tips?
  26. I'm probably 10 hours into this game now. I haven't even finished episode 2. I'm hooked on delivering. I find a lost package. I must deliver said package. It's addictive. Having said that it's definitely not going to be for everyone, and mostly it's going to be a game in bursts. I played 4 hours straight on Sunday, but last night I felt an hour was enough. I think this game is genius and madness on a disc though. So much bullshit, story and game play wise, yet I must trek on and like other peoples structures. Much like real life, people are ignoring the cool stuff I'm putting up like some awesome bridges, but they're sitting there with no likes. I'm not bitter, I'll just keep driving over my bridges that make life easier! I've heard you get some really cool stuff in Episode 3. I'll get there eventually.
