  1. That or it’s one of those cases where if they don’t protect the patent they lose it ?
  2. I like the idea of it, but in reality I’ll use a tiny fraction of what it can do and hope for an option to copy the xmb.
  3. Would buy a matte black set of these, but the potential for fancy special editions is nice.
  4. Mafia: Definitive Edition (PS4) Never played the original but Mafia 2 was one of my favourites last gen. Combat, movement and driving all feel a bit heavy, but okay. I enjoyed the setting and story, despite being full of clichés. Worth a play if you fancy a crime story. Despite appearances this is not an open world game so it isn’t bloated with repetitive side quests and doesn’t outstay it’s welcome. I got the trilogy for a good price so might move on to the second one.
  5. But is he small, or far away? If he’s 4 foot 6 it’s reasonably sized, but if he’s 8 foot tall I’ll need a new house.
  6. But, but, gamepass and Bethesda etc. I’m joking, but I don’t know what this means. High temp= high failure potential? Possibly high running costs? Or could it mean that the cooling solution is super effective? Definitely need to see impressions of it running something next gen, which I don’t know if they’ve shown any footage of yet.
  7. Resident Evil 2 Remake (PS4) Just finished Leon A, and I’m done with this game. I got into the series with RE4 and so I play these as action games. This is not an action game, and so I was quite disappointed. I don’t necessarily mind the horror part of it, but the relative lack of ammo and that it takes 20 headshots to kill a basic zombie was frustrating to me. Also Mr X can fuck right off. I actually paid a couple of quid for dlc infinite ammo weapons just to get to the end. With that the game instantly became more fun as it was about the puzzles and atmosphere not the disappointing
  8. PS5 day one because my PS4 is about to take flight and I like the Sony exclusives. I’ll get an X when there’s something I want to play on it or a price drop/redesign. Probably Gears 6 but maybe the Bethesda stuff if that becomes exclusive (although that will probably be a long time coming).
  9. CoD MW2 Remastered (PS4) Irritatingly I bought this a few weeks before it went on PS Plus. When it first came out, to me it was a great game. All this time later and it was decidedly average. Exactly the same CoD gameplay, although with very pretty graphics. The lack of Spec Ops is annoying as I loved that mode. I got suckered in by nostalgia and hopefully have learned my lesson; CoD is not a good franchise (at least for me).
  10. Ghost of Tsushima (PS4) Thoroughly enjoyed this, to the point where I’m mopping up all the side quests and collectibles. It plays like a standard open world Ass Creed type game, but the world is beautiful and it’s very cool being a Samurai. The combat is like the Arkham games, so timing your parries is important. You could also play it in pure stealth but it’s kind of more fun to run in chopping off limbs. To sum up, story is okay, combat is very good, the world and setting are great. It’s also nowhere near as long as AC. It doesn’t really bring anything new to the genre, but it
  11. Shenmue (PS4) Got the platinum, like Wayne. Never played it before, unlike Wayne. A nice change of pace after Last of Us 2. I played Shenmue 2 ages ago on XB, so it was familiar yet different. Going to play 2 next, possibly 3 as well before Ghost of Tsushima.
  12. The Last of Us Part 2 (PS4) Finished this last week. I successfully managed to avoid any of the leaks and spoilers for this, so I won’t mention any here. Graphics, sound and animation are outstanding. The core gameplay is very good, better than the first. I mostly played it stealthily but you can go all action at points too. You can even adjust AI and resources in the options to how you want it, even turn it into pseudo-Gears of War. Really nice to have the choice. I enjoyed the story, it was very clever and well done and if you take the time with it you can really appreciate wh
  13. CoD WW2 (PS4) Standard CoD campaign. It was fun, like a greatest hits of WW2 campaign, and didn’t outstay it’s welcome. Fun for a weekend, especially as it’s on PS Plus right now. Won’t be going near multiplayer so no idea how that is.
  14. Assassin’s Creed Origins (PS4) I enjoyed this. First AC I played since 3. The setting was interesting, decent if linear story and exploring the world was cool. I didn’t like how long it was and the RPG elements felt tacked on and force you to do side quests to level up that I wasn’t fussed with. Worth the £10 I spent. Might try Valhalla if I’m desperate for something on next gen, but in no real rush to play every entry in the series I missed.
  15. I’d heard mixed things about Darksiders 2, and despite loving the first I never played the second. Looks like I’ll be picking it up on the Switch at some stage
