    Let's talk Prog Rock

    Wow, hadn't seen that. Sad to see one of the greats call it a day, but their last album was pretty awful. You could hear that they cheaped out on production as it all sounded pretty tinny. Sadly Murray is living in lala land if he thinks he'll raise 1k a month for his solo album, I hope he has a good plan b! Ironically enough, Alan Reed has gone out and recorded two pretty good solo albums, certainly worth checking out if you're into Pallas.
  2. Spent about an hour last night just swinging around the city and doing random jobs, challenges and side missions. Really enjoyed that. The combat is substantially harder than I anticipated, to the point that it threw me off progressing in the main campaign. Looking forward to getting back to it though.

    Devil May Cry 5

    Seriously, that looks incredible. Day one, as Goemon said, I'm getting a real God Hand feel for this one. With Fist Of The Northstar just over the horizon, that particular itch is being well scratched of late.
  4. I bought Rogue Warrior as a joke for £2, as I wanted to see how bad it actually was, particularly the OTT voice acting. After playing through the frustrating opening, I ended up sticking with it and rather enjoyed it! Harsh buggers!

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Twenty games seems very stingy. Of the PS1 era, my favourite game was unquestionably Silent Bomber. It doesn't even feel like a retro game to me that one, I play it because it's still one of the best third person action games going. I doubt that will be here of course, but I'd personally hope for some Crash Bandicoot, Syphon Filter, Need For Speed and Tekken 3. I don't think I'll buy in at this price, but if it's expandable and you can rewind games and it looks somewhat decent on a HDTV, then I'll certainly keep an eye on it. Already excited for a potential PS2 Mini though!

    PS4 Pro

    I've not really kept track of this, but is PSVR generally seen as a failure? Add-on's rarely sell particularly well, so I'd assumed PSVR was a test run for the eventual PS5 VR solution, which will launch alongside the PS5 with substantially improved hardware, yet have a fairly robust library of cheaper PS4 VR games to play at launch. That's why I've held off anyway. I don't think the PS4 quite has the power to do VR justice and it seemed like a project Sony were investing in for the long haul. Indeed, early PS5 spec rumours have pointed to it packing chips specifically to help with VR, but of course that could be wrong. We'll see I guess, but I don't think VR is going back into it's box this time, even if it's not quite been the breakaway success it looks as though it could have been. As to the Pro, I avoided it primarily because I assume Sony is going to make PS5 BC with PS4, so it seemed like quite an added expense for the sake of a few years of modest improvements. I have certainly been tempted by it, as there is this nagging feeling that when I'm playing Spiderman, I could be getting a more premium experience on another system, but then I figure that's true for pretty much every third party game which has a PC release, and the games still looked great to me, so I've held off. It'll be nice to get the bump when I do get a PS5 though.
  7. I couldn't bring myself to push past five hours of the new God Of War. Loved all the previous versions, found this version to be utterly tedious. I liked the setup with his kid but the combat didn't click with me at all, just felt like a slog fest compared to the violent ballet of the previous games. The hub world felt like unnecessary padding, which eventually lead me to question why I was sticking it out. Easily my biggest disappointment of the generation, but reading the thread here and elsewhere, it appears to be a minority view.
  8. Hehe. Hey, they know their craft and undoubtedly they're a safe pair of hands when it comes to Bond, I just don't think they've got much more to offer the franchise and to be fair, the fact that they weren't writing Bond 25 originally suggests they know that too. Turning into a right old dogs breakfast though. The studio should have let Craig go after the last one and allowed themselves to explore some fresh angles, it's clear everyone is at their wits end with it.

    This poor neglected thread! What have people been listening to? Here's some new Fish to get things started: ... and if anyone is asking themselves what Fish has been doing for the last thirty years, then do be sure to check out his back catalogue. This is one of my favourites from his Feast Of Consequence album:
  10. A big part of that is Cruise though, he puts heart and soul into the films and seems to be utterly fearless when it comes to stunts. Craig on the other hand sounds as though he's going to be doing this next one with his arm up his back and his pockets stuffed with cash. Casino Royale is one of my favourite films and I think Skyfall was a solid Bond adventure, but I've little desire to see Craig begrudgingly take up the role again, especially if it's going to be pushed further and further back. Better to have a clean break and get some new talent on board. I feel Purvis & Wade are spent creatively.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    The trailer looks good anyway, with some noticeable set pieces to look forward to. I think the middling reviews probably say as much of the generally high calibre of games we're getting these days as anything. The narrative sounds a bit clumsy but as long as it's got it where it counts, I'm still keeping hold of my pre-order.
  12. Yeah, I'm just getting the hang of doing this and it's transformative. Hitting X as you land on those circular highlights really helps you use the environment to get up some crazy speed. It's a pure joy to navigate the city, last night I just spent thirty mins exploring. Great game.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    Oh yeah, now I remember all that! A lot of stick harvesting wasn't there...? To be fair, that shit is in most games these days so I could be getting confused. The action was solid enough and there was plenty to explore, but it did miss some of the set pieces of the first one and just how tightly it all played. I think I'm going to give this new one a punt though.

    Bodycount - PS3/360

    You reckon? I assume you're talking about using the right thumbstick to crouch and peek? I actually liked that, it threw me at first but now I find it as intuitive as the traditional controls.
