  1. Got distracted by Ratchet and Clank... I'm going back to it this week, so maybe I'll take him down
  2. Ratchet & Clank:Rift Apart-PS5-Amazing looking, great fun to play.
  3. It still holds up. I've been doing a few levels here and there since it came back to Game Pass.
  4. Still can't beat the first boss got to him about 5 times now. I'm either under levelled and so is my gun or I have the power but I've been through one too many lock-down rooms and been fucked so don't have full health. It's partly down to RNGesus fucking me or lack of skill. I haven't been able to sort both out on the same run. When I get to the boss the first phase isn't too bad but I tend to fuck up on the 2nd and by the time I get to the 3rd and final I'm in a bad way. Having said all that I fucking love it, and to say that about a game I've put 10 hours into and h
  5. So this is fucking excellent. I've only put about 5 hours into it, and haven't even beaten the 1st biome, but I have met the boss that I was so close to beating. It's a rogue-like with a few persistent upgrades. In my last run I got so many things that are going to help my future self it hurts. I picked this up for £30 not the RRP of £70. If I'd paid £70 we'd be having a different conversation, see also Ratchet and Clank. I think I've paid full price for 2 PS5 games, I can't see me paying £70 for any game. I think Sony have fucked up with their pricing, as most of
  6. You should play the PS4 R&C remake. It's awesome, only finished it last year and it holds up. I didn't get into R&C until the PS3 era and they're great.Like shreddies, only frostier.
  7. I really want to play this. But not at £50 plus. I recently picked up Returnal for £30 so that's my target.
  8. Streets of Rage 4-Series X-A good game that holds true to the originals. Still not a fan of the art style but the animation is nice, also the music isn't a patch on the originals(well at least 1&2 as we all know 3 sucked balls) Played it in co-op with Jimmy in an evening. I'll probably go through it again at some point and try out some of the other characters. Game Pass FTW!
  9. Outriders-Series X- Far too long. Story utter bullshit that we stopped watching cut scenes after mission 3(it may have been 2)yet I could not stop playing. Once you spec your character to your play style it becomes less a war of attrition and the fun begins. It's very obtuse in telling you how to do that so begin with guides and go from there. One caveat, if I hadn't have been playing co-op I'd have ditched it long before the end. Game Pass FTW?

    Giant Bomb

    Nextlander has just launched with Brad, Vinny and Alex. Podcast available everywhere and they're streaming on Twitch. May invest in the patreon at some point.
  11. Sea of Solitude-Series X- This is really good. It has a lovely art style, and the story is interesting and heartfelt. It's about a girl who is in this fantastical world dealing with her emotions. She's lonely, has low self esteem, and is depressed. Through the gameplay, a 3D platformer, which is more about traversal than Mario like pinpoint accuracy and acrobatics, you learn about her relationships. I won't spoil anything but it's one of the few games where I've actually felt drawn in and feel for the character. A lot of the time you see what's coming before she does(deliberate I'm sure)
  12. I bought it yesterday, I'll probably get around to it in a year but someone was selling the PS5 version for £15 on FB marketplace so I figured it would be rude not to at that price.
  13. Max:The Curse of Brotherhood-Series X- A great little puzzle platformer that doesn't outstay it's welcome. On Gamepass so no excuses etc.
  14. Vinny, Alex and Brad all leaving Friday. This sucks. That leaves Bakalar on the East coast who is alright but basically rambles a lot and is up his own arse. Still have Jeff, Rorie, Jan and Jason on the West but this is a massive blow and I think it'll be the end of my premium sub unless they pull something magical out of their arse. My working week(a lot of driving) revolves around their podcasts and audio books. I guess I'll be listening to more books. It was all about the dynamic between these people for me than the news or the games, most of them are our age gro
  15. Mafia:Definitive Edition-Series X- The story was great, and I enjoyed the game well enough but it's very clunky to control at times. Combat was the main problem area, I felt a lot of the time there was literally only one way to get through the arena and if you deviated you died. A Lot. Checkpointing, or lack thereof spoilt what could have been a great experience.
  16. Batman Arkham VR-PS4- This is a pretty decent experience, but very light on game and it was far too short. I got it for £7.99 in a sale and still feel short changed at that price. There is more to do involving the riddler after you finish but like the mainline Arkham games I found a few and got bored.
  17. It Takes Two-Series X- Best Co-op game ever? It might be. Funny, poignant, harrowing, bizarre are some words I could use to describe this game. The story is ok, sometimes the characters are really annoying at times, but it's the gameplay that keeps changing up all the time that is the star. It can be bought for under £20 right now digitally, and it will eventually join Game Pass, you literally have no excuse to not try this game out.* *Unless you have no friends or are Jimmy.
  18. Call of Duty:Black Ops Cold War-PS5-A decent COD campaign that has taken me an age to get round to finishing.I usually finish them off before jumping into multiplayer. I enjoyed it a fair bit and there's a decent amount of variety. Looks really nice too, loved all the neon and the explosions are amazing.
  19. It gets good about 4 levels in when you finally get all the tools, before that, it literally feels like something is missing. Once I'd got that I didn't look back.
  20. Deliver us the Moon-Xbox- This is a great game. Lots of puzzles and story and fuck all combat. I had a couple of minor issues with it but not enough to stop me playing through the whole thing over a week. Thanks again to Game Pass.
  21. GTA is coming back to game pass in a couple of weeks if that helps.
  22. https://www.cdkeys.com/xbox-live/games/assassin-s-creed-unity-xbox-one 59p. Even if you play it for an hour I call that value for money. I bought the PS4 version at full price and don't regret it.
  23. Marvels Avengers-Series X- This is pretty good. It looks fucking fantastic in both modes(4K/Frame rate) but I preferred the 60fps. The story is pretty good and the action is solid. I haven't finished the 2 add ons yet but they look to be more of the same., so I'm not complaining I probably won't stick around for the grind but I've enjoyed the loot loop to a degree. In some ways the campaign is an ultra long tutorial as you get a good chance to play all the characters. If you like The Avengers or all this super hero lark then it's worth a pop, I picked it up for £20 and I feel it was well worth
