  1. @Goemon that moment in your spoiler was incredible, I had to watch it three times ! It's a shame Falke is such an unappealing character design, no flair at all. Her voice actress sounds bored to tears which doesn't help
  2. Not a lot to get excited about, it looks like a Black Ops 3 DLC pack. It's not pushing any boundaries graphically, they've axed campaign, bought back zzzzombies mode, and announced a battle royale mode with a lot of buzzwords and bluster but nothing to show.
  3. what the fuck is this bah

    God of War (2018) - Magni-ficent!

    Dude, turn it off, go for a walk round the block, have a brew and try again. You are playing on so much tilt its a wonder you haven't fell over!
  5. This week's extra battle against Zangief is a load of input reading bullshit. Save your FM guys
  6. Looks identical to black ops 3. "boots on the ground" Shows vertical grappling hook Not for me. Interested in their take on battle royale though, will watch that with interest.

    RⒶGE 2 - Explosions by Avalanche Studios

    Well, they've never worked alongside ID on one of their properties either, so it could go either way.

    Far Cry 5

    Nah I don't think so , I'm usually quite easily pleased. I finished FC 2, 3, 4 and Blood Dragon and enjoyed them all. I finished Mafia 3 - it's amazing what great gunplay, enemy hit reactions and sense of place will let you put up with (as in, the same mission 50 times). I'm down on the game because I wanted to love it but am just finding it really half arsed. It doesn't help that Joseph Seed looks like Jared Leto and isn't anywhere near as interesting as Vaas or Min. I probably shouldn't have played it after back to backing Horizon and God of War.

    Far Cry 5

    Oh, I thought that only happened when you were shot with the magical drug bullets. Snark aside, that doesn't make any sense. You have friendly NPCs in a safehouse (in my case, the Prison) talking to you while the Antagonist talks over them, and not from a TV or radio, literally talking into your ear, even the subittles double up. If you're saying this is an intentional design decision....it's a fucking awful one?

    Far Cry 5

    I'm the opposite I think this is comfortably my least favourite of the series so far. I did a mission last night where I'm strapped to a chair. I move toward the stairs and get half way down them before being teleported to the top for a canned animation to play. At the bottom there are 8 enemies on patrol. 5 of them are identical , 2 of them having a face to face conversation. The other 3 are copy and paste zombie types. For a main story mission - where is the care, love and attention to detail in it? It's so sloppy and slapdash. The actual game is not worthy of the staggeringly beautiful open world it inhabits. I've given it a good crack of the whip but the idea of putting in 20 or more hours for a supposedly shit ending where there are so many other games vying for attention makes it easy to drop. Also, whoever thought it was a good idea to have the main antagonists ghost talk to you (with subtitles) when you're walking around friendly bases, and the random gospel choirs that are nowhere to be found even though the audio engineering makes it sound like they are in a building nearby - what the hell were you thinking? If your goal was to confuse and disorient the player then you succeded.

    Mile 22 (2018) Peter Berg and Marky Mark Round 4

    Looks good to me proper R-rated action, always a thrill to watch Iko Uwais in anything and Marky Mark , Transformers aside is usually pretty solid.

    Shenmue III - PS4/PC | 2019

    Good - plenty of time to run though the 1 & 2 remasters without feeling under pressure of time!

    RⒶGE 2 - Explosions by Avalanche Studios

    Look at the performance improvement between Evil Within 1 and 2, 1 runs like a hamster wheel dipped in dogshit and the second one is open world and runs lovely and smooth on a Pro with uncapped framerate. Just Cause 3 was the poor b-team and nowhere near in the oven long enough. I still believe it'll run at 60fps on all formats!

    RⒶGE 2 - Explosions by Avalanche Studios

    I can't think of a better fps developer than Id to tackle a battle royale mode. Rage and Dooms silky smooth combat in a free for all setting? Well up for that. Only fitting the father of the fps genre do it proud.

    RⒶGE 2 - Explosions by Avalanche Studios

    Someone should show this to Rockstar and say here's how you make a fucking trailer lads There's loads to take in. Those moody woods @ 0:27 are nothing like the neon drenched rest of the trailer. The sheer amount of enemies on screen is really impressive. It looks like you have Destiny style super moves. You can shotgun people that have been launched from a circus cannon. The car combat looks great. It all looks really good, and fun, and videogamey. Avalanche being on Dev Duties is superb because not only were the car parts of their Mad Max game excellent, it means ID have been free to cook up Doom 2. I really like the first one, usual complaints aside. It was nice to play a 60fps shooter that wasn't COD!
