    Yeah, I guess since the original Halo trilogy came out the whole sci-fi shooter genre exploded and everything new or exciting got eaten up pretty fast. Everything felt very surface level about the campaign.

    Absolutely LOVED that game. I didn't seem to care about the actual side content bits being very repetitive because swinging between them was so much fun.

    Getting that from my mummy for Christmas. Really looking forward to it if I can stop playing BR's.

    Spiderman-PS4-Platinum.GOTY! This game is fucking amazing. It looks great, the story is great, it sounds great. It's great. Best Superhero game ever. Yes even better then Superman 64! If I have one complaint it's that there's too many crimes. It's not an issue if you're not trophy whoring but they're all very samey. You need this game in your life.

    I appear to have put my Canoo somewhere sensible. By that I mean I can't find the bloody thing at the moment. Will keep looking.

    Put me down for this (the meet up that is, not injecting me with a lethal dose at a vets). I'll let Dreddypoops know too as he has only just got the hang of the alphabet and is very unlikely to see this post.

    ‘‘Twas disappointing. I put it at 2/5 because it was so generic. I can see why playing co-op would make it a bit more fun.

    Halo 5 (XB1) - 2015 - 3/5 (Co-Op) Played through this with my brother across the water and it didn't quite hit the high notes of what I remember of Halo 3. There was a lot of dead space, and empty feeling encounters, which took the wind out of the epic space adventure feeling. The plot was absolutely garbage, as well, but there were enough stand out levels and co-op shenanigans that it was worth playing through.

    Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (Switch) Just did the story, and it is a fun little game. Pretty much XCom in the Mario universe. Really enjoyed this one, and tempted by the dlc but doubt I’d get round to it. I even found some of the jokes amusing. If you have a Switch and like tactical games, get this. It’s fairly cheap everywhere now, too.

    That would be awesome, cheers fella!

    PSVR - Is it worth it?

    So I got one. Played for too long and the luge one on VR Worlds messed me up. Went for a bath and the action of getting out of the bath made me light headed as fuck and I threw up. Lesson: Shorter sessions and build up slowly. Good fun though, until the vom.

    Still got my GamePark Canoo (think I bought it off someone one here?), which might still have a card in there. Will have a look.

    Old SD-Cards Wanted

    So the lovely GP2X I bought on the weekend decided to brick itself when doing a firmware update, apparently this was a daily occurrence for GamePark handheld owners back in the day. In order to salvage the device I need old, like really old SD-Cards, specifically non SDHC cards. I found one in the bottom of a box, but it doesn't recognise it. I have 3 on order with Amazon, but they are probably badly labelled SDHC cards. If you have an old digital camera/mobile or something with a between 32MB to 2GB SD card that doesn't say SDHC, I would love you long time if I could borrow it for an afternoon to re-flash the firmware then will send it right back. Ideally I need multiple cards to test as the machine is picky about what cards it will boot from. Muchos Gracias *EDIT* Forgot to say, they can be full size or micro, older cards might be labelled as TF or TransFlash rather than SD, but will be the same package size as a modern full/micro SD.

    Bloodborne (PS4) - It's Souls, but hyper geared toward the sort of high mobilty melee builds I've always played in souls, minus the crutch of having a shield to tank a hit if you mistime a dodge. It's different, but not all that different. You'll still take the same approach to getting through the game as you would another Souls game. The focus on one type of build is welcome most of the time but on the other hand, it can feel a bit samey at times. Most bosses revolve around picking a direction to dodge/circle them in and stab them between attack patterns. It's a great world with some really awesome design going on. The interconnectedness of the earliest areas evokes the original Dark Souls, which I felt had been lost in DS 2 and 3. The game opens quite hard, I hadn't played a Souls for a while so was a little rusty. It did feel that as with most Souls games there was a downward difficulty curve, with the earliest areas and bosses being the toughest and becoming a bit of a pushover toward the end. It made a number of the bosses a little disappointing as they looked threatening but in the end went down a little easily. The DLC helped in that regard though as it was by far the toughest content in the game. The biggest issue with the game is the camera, which struggles to keep up with a lot of boss fights (Laurence, Darkbeast Paarl, Logarius being chief culprits), and how easy it is to get stuck on the scenery in busy moments. It's half the reason Gascoigne is so difficult, you get stuck on shit all the time. I think I did every non-chalice boss, so I'll probably come back for NG+ at some point to do the rest and maybe grab the platinum.
  24. Despite taking nearly a year to complete the first game, it was one of the games of the generation for me, #2 in the series was... ok... I guess, never really got around to finishing it though as it just didn't grab me the way the first one did, the characters were whiny little emo kids. We won't mention that other Valkyria game, less said about it the better, thankfully Sega learned from their mistake. What people wanted was basically the first game, with some new story, hell just some new DLC for the original game and people would be throwing cash at the screen. VC4 is just what we wanted, I swear it's just an asset flip of the first game and a few new bits bolted on, but that's no bad thing. The combat is exactly the same - Good The graphics are almost exactly the same - Good The story is mostly the same, the same war from a different allied factions perspective - OK I guess, on chapter 4 and I kind of miss seeing the enemy cut scenes and characters, but this might change. New class - Grenadier - Basically beast mode, enormous long ranged damage and suppressing fire, but requires someone (even the grenadier) to have line of sight with an enemy, but you can carpet bomb randomly for those corners that have an obvious enemy hidden in the grass The level design has taken a big leap as well, much better designs, multiple routes that benefit the new class without it being a "you will only put the grenadier here" cludge and more clever use of the weather system, the "hunt the fake tank" level was particularly nerve wracking and had me scratching my head how to accomplish the objective without perma-death'ing a good character. Speaking of characters, they aren't too bad, the main tank-driving protagonist is a bit tooooooo close to Welkin for my liking, and for the love of god, don't enable English voices, the voice actor completely ruins the character, in Japanese he's a broody gruff manly man, in English he sounds like a wimpy man-child. It's worth playing in Japanese purely for Raz, voiced by anime voice actor Kazuya Nakai, Raz is the character that gained the game an unfortunate reputation on launch for his sexual assault (ass grab) of female colleague Kai. Made more unfortunate by the devs giving her a ridiculously detailed ass, it's almost DoA:XBV level. Nothing compared to Selvaria's Bulgarian Funbags in the first game though. It is very very easy as a veteran of the series though, the option to only start on normal or easy difficulty I feel is a bad choice, it should detect if you have the remastered first game already and give you the option to skip all the tutorials except for new content and unlock hard mode as an option. You can still cheese levels with engineers equipped with higher grade weapons, or abuse Orders to buff scouts into near-unbeatable walking death machines, which is a shame, and it's hard not to fall back on these techniques to burn through a level in one turn and max Exp and Cash returns. I am trying to play though it the first time properly though, like I said, the Grenadier is ridiculously good, but their limited mobility (around half that of Lancers) means if you are to use them properly, levels are going to take noticeably longer. 5 hours in though, and probably another 25+ to go for the first playthrough, but thoroughly enjoying this, it's legitimately awesome. We shall see what I say when I get near to the end of the game though, as that's usually where the series falls down and throws cheap shots at you to make the final levels harder rather than smarter.

    Been a while, but finally managed to save the world again in: Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age - PC. This was sensational. Just a perfect re imagining of those Snes Psone JRPG glory days with sensational visuals. Even a typical cliched plot couldn't ruin this. It was glorious. Oh and I also managed to finish a little game called: Red Dead Redemption 2 - PS4. Another game I run out of superlatives for. I have to admit it was a slow burn, and there were times in the first dozen or so hours when it felt a bit aimless and not as tight as RDR1, but man, by the end (the END end) I'm ready to put this in GOAT lists. It was that good. Rockstar have surpassed even themselves.

    Bloodborne

    Further boss updates: One Reborn: Not too bad Celestial Emissary: lol Ebrietas: Not too bad Micolash: Stop running away ya prick Mergo's Wet Nurse: Looks scarier than it is Ludwig: I brought an NPC hunter in and smacked the shit out of it first try, so I dunno Living Failures: lol Lady Maria: Probably the most fun fight, pretty damn tough though Orphan of Kos: I understand why people think it's the hardest of the entire series, but it wasn't that bad. Mostly because of how generous it is with with healing and attack windows Time to run the endgame now. And do the optional boss in the DLC I missed.
