    NieR: Automata

    Well that kind of is the point.
  3. I liked them in GTAIII and Vice City. Got a bit much in San Andreas, so I concentrated on certain types and ignored others. Didn't really bother at all post San Andreas. Just too much to hunt and I suppose my gaming time was getting more limited then too. I do remember shooting some pigeons in IV, but that was a case of doing it if I happened to notice them, not actively looking for them and not bothered about a running total. I did the billboards in Burnout Paradise, but someone mentioned Forza Horizon having five times as many? I'd be skipping that. The ability boosting ones in Crackdown were fine. An ever increasing reward is probably a good way of doing it.

    Devil May Cry 5

    A YouTuber I follow posted a stylish S rank run of the demo. Really shows the potential in there!
  7. I think my favourite collectibles ever were the sticker/material/costume bubbles in LittleBigPlanet. Some of the multiplayer ones were a PITA but I was genuinely sad when there none left to find. The biggest oversight in providing all the user created levels (even the genius ones) was that they didn't have that % collected target to aim for.

    Yoo-hoo!

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    I'd love to give this a spin but it was my sons favourite game and we don't see each other, alas I think that would play on my mind too much. Dying for a new AAA Switch game too.

    Below Is Out Now

    Im in a different boat. Loving every little bit of this masterpiece.

    Has anyone posted this: it's the character unlock map for Classic Mode.

    Ride 3

    Nobody playing this? It's a great improvement over Ride 2. And on the Xbox One X you can choose to play at 1080p/60fps. I'm playing on a 1080P TV and while some tracks lack the detail of a Forza or Gran Turismo, they look more than good enough, and the bike models are fantastic. Really having a lot of fun with it, and it's quite a generous package with the amount of tracks and bikes. It's great to be playing motorcycle game where the bikes feel like bikes, instead of the disappointing shit show that was Isle of Man TT.

    Xbox "Scarlett" - next gen consoles

    It's a trend I've noticed with several games, but you're right that it's meaningless until proven otherwise. But it'll form something of a pattern in hindsight if big companies push ahead with streaming on the cheap. I hope they don't, but my faith isn't too strong that we're close to acceptable performance. I'd feel a lot more positive if we had UK-wide cable/FTTH, even though that only lowers the average ping by, what, 10ms on fastpath? I'm not familiar with QUIC, but takeup's been slow, hasn't it? As for ditching ACKs entirely, how would you maintain sync in input-critical games? You could process more inputs locally and send state changes, but I'd be dubious about trying to write netcode for a fighting game that way. (Because of the way that most FGs treat buffered inputs inherently.) @rafaqat — Do you know when those two UK locations go live? Unless they are and I'm misreading the map? Microsoft have been in Dublin for how many years now? But still no presence over here. Your confidence is higher than mine! [edit] Though I do trust MS more than Sony, and found Live more reliable with my 360 than I find PSN now. The thought of game-streaming replacing local hardware fills me with dread for now, that's all! I'm vaguely okay with digital dist, with the usual pricing/corp-control/resale caveats.

    Starlink: Battle for Atlas (No Man’s Starfox)

    Great! So if I buy the PS4 version on disc with plastic tat I can stick the tat in a cupboard and never touch it again but still play the game?

    NieR: Automata

    25 endings done now, I've only got the hard one left - ending Y. I'm not sure if I'll get it, I've skipped around chapters so much I'm muddled up. I still don't understand the storyline, robots killing robots because of aliens and humans. Robots giving birth to androids. Robots eating humans. Adam and Eve. I mean in the end they're all fighting over two extinct species why the fuck are they trying so hard to preserve the memory of an extinct species? Who cares? Anyway, it's been the best game I've played in ages, and the soundtrack is godly:

    PS1 Appreciation Thread

    Battle system is my main priority I think - I've basically given up on Lunar because that side of it is so shallow - so any that are especially interesting or unique are of interest. I didn't appreciate Alundra was an action RPG! II'm wary of those but will give it a wee go regardless because it does keep coming up. I know it's not in the same vein really but I gave Brave Fencer Musashi a whirl based on the love in here and had to ditch it five minutes in when my arthritis stopped me at the first hint of a dexterity-based challenge and I'm always terrified with ARPGs that I'll hit that wall at the 50+ hour mark.

    GG’s all. Lots of highlights there.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    I could complete the Arcade version of SF2 with 20p. But 30 years of Streetfighter never prepared me for my first Smash. I love it, but spacial awareness is my biggest fault (week 1). When i'm plummeting to my death from a poorly timed jump or a new characters spinny-twirly move, my opponents don't care if i can do Ryu's uppercut for real on a Pro Controller (which by the way is uncomfortably heavy). It is a lot to take in. I keep telling myself "Powerstone, not Virtua Fighter". But most importantly; its soooooooo much fun! Win or lose.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Gah! Isn't there a self-help group for this? Breath of the Wild Addicts Anonymous. Up to 80 hrs. now. And yes, I am fully employed and have a kid. ... just... one more... shrine ...

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    People of rllmuk, hear me now. Remember when you played SF2 on console and you thought you were awesome? Well forget that, because when you play actual people who can "do" this game THEY WILL BREAK YOU. *drago.gif* Stay safe people because your time is coming and your Jigglypuff tricks will not help you. Christmas break lobbys are coming.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Search for me. I'm playing way too buttonsy tonight. But i am mighty twitchy and its not the alcohol.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Never done it, but if you like. Also did you like that Marth bait?

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    If I remember rightly you have to pop in houses and shops in Kakariko to keep getting mini missions - eventually you’ll go to see Impa and the ball has been stolen, and then you track the thief, which gets the ball to the mound. You’ve probably just missed a mission.
