    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    Well, we do have jump duplicated on the right stick so there is the possibility of different function being assigned there....

    Cheers, that explains it - I was trying to get on them at the hub. Will have to try harder later!

    I take it there is no way to ride on the monorail? They disappear as soon as I manage to land on them.

    Gaming tropes that need to go away

    Christ yes. I've not officially given up on it but I haven't played it in a while because it is all just so overblown. You want me to drive a car over a hill. Fine. But instead of just letting me do it I have to wait for five minutes because you've created a story about a stunt driver and shoe horned it into the game.

    The 3DS Resurrection thread

    Is there much point to upgrading from a 3DS XL to a NEW 3DS XL. Fucking Nintendo and their naming system. I should probably just wait for the New NEW 3DS XL to come out.

    Is "Game" finished?

    In fairness, I sometimes go to five guys just for their amazing drinks machine which will basically make you any combination of any soft drink ever made. Fancy a lime cola, go for it. But five guys are a food provider so at least their is a link - Game on the other hand...

    Star Trek Discovery

    Yeah, it's not a great ensemble show really. Trek has always had a focus point (the Captains) but have always had loads of episodes which were largely about characters other than the Captain. Deep Space Nine was great for this, there were some episodes where it is like Sisko is barely featured. Burnham does feel a bit omnipresent in this show though.
  9. When is early word ever not great. It seems every shit comic book movie over the last few years has got amazing early reactions. I'm looking at you Batman vs Superman.
  10. A racing battle royale with fuel usgae or tyre wear as an option might be interesting. A bit of risk reward in that the less fuel you have the faster your top speed but you can to ensure you don't run out of fuel. Ditto with new tyres, equipping them loses you time but you gain better grip and speed when equipped with newer tyres. It incorporates a bit of the look mechanic from Battle Royale games, do you try to win with the equipment you have or do you gamble with new and better equipment.

    It's Crackdown, you climb buildings, kill bad guys and collect green glowly things. We're not talking sophisticated plot twists here.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    One thing I am noticing is that I am often accidentally stumbling into boss battles simply by trying to get to the top of large buildings which is a pretty Crackdown thing to try and do. I somehow found myself battling Ngata last night who was pretty tough (so tough I gave up on the conventional method and just went to the very top of the building to spam him with rockets whilst he was helplessly sitting below). Then after that, somehow I found myself battling what I can presume to the final boss (flying dragon woman thing - you can tell I've not paid too much attention to the story) - I quickly gave up on that one. Whilst it is nice how seamlessly the boss battles have been put in, it is perhaps a little too seamless since I seem to just activate them whilst orb scaling large buildings. And the boss battles are definitely one for the gaming tropes thread - massively more harder than any of the build up! The game is also not without its bugs. I've bunged enemies (that need to be killed to complete a mission) actually into objects before with the gun that projects people and thus they became invincible. Had to walk away from that one. And on the aforesaid boss battles (which the build up to them come with their own checkpoints), I'm sure I've died and actually been put forward in the mission as a result of the checkpoint. If anything I quite like the bugs which just show the sheer possibilities you have to cause chaos in the game.

    Agreed. As I get older and have more disposable income, I find I am limited more by available time than money. If a film is a terrible waste of two hours then I am going to be unhappy if I paid for a cinema ticket to see it or if I watched it for free on BBC 1. It is the two hours for me which is the more valuable commodity. With the sheer breath of entertainment available at a press of a button I'm not going to waste time on anything which is rubbish, be it free, subscription based or actually purchasing outright. I've probably clocked around 7 hours on Crackdown 3 so far and it has been great fun. But I'm not spending that 7 hours because the game is, to me, essentially free, I'm spending that time because I'm really enjoying it. I've got plenty of paid for games waiting for me to play without thinking I need to make sure I have fun with Crackdown 3 because it didn't cost me anything. If a shit game costs me £40 I'll give up on it after an hour and if a shit game costs me nothing I'll still give up on it after an hour. I'm not at the stage of my life where I have to make myself enjoy something because it is free, I'm at the stage of my life where time is the most valuable commodity and whether I'm enjoying something is the only metric I need to use on whether to continue playing or to give up. So when I say I'm having a really good time with Crackdown this would still stand had I spent £50 on it.

    Unlocked the Oblivion gun at the end of last night's play... This looks like it has the potential to be fun.
  15. I think racing is definitely a genre which could be adapted to work on a battle royale mode - maybe not 100 people but a fair amount of people with the cars at the back after each lap being eliminated. That or... Crazy Taxi.
