    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    I'm a sucker for zombies and I don't think I cared about the recycled map perhaps because I played 2 before 1. It's all very hazy though, I just know I really enjoyed it.

    Crackdown 2 was a great game, I enjoyed it immensely, I don't know why it gets so much hate.

    Some games will let you switch HDR on or off in-game without faffing with the windows settings which is great, alas this game is not one of them but I'll give Microsoft some credit as they have improved HDR settings within Windows over time. Crackdown 3 then, is it me or are the propaganda towers really fun to complete? I've now switched to a different agent with 10% agility bonus just so I can get agility level 5 quicker, getting about the city on foot is really fun although I like driving about also and the handling feels spot on to me tbh.

    Annoying on pc as you have to turn on HDR in Windows before playing the game. Also annoying that if I pause the game and do something else for a minute the screen saver will come on and controller input won't get rid of it so I have to wiggle my mouse quickly. Even more annoying was if HDR was on and an achievement popped up the game would stutter and gabbled graphics would fill the screen briefly, had to turn notifications off. Game is great so far but God damn why can't Microsoft get there shit together when it comes to pc gaming?

    Quick question, will this be on pc and will it have HDR?

    What is this fourth survivor thing and how do I unlock it?
  7. There's one called Dagon, Spanish I think, can't remember if they speak English in it as I saw it ages ago but I remember enjoying it and I've never see it get mentioned anywhere.

    Absolutely spot on, at launch I hated the game. First impressions were bad for a lot of people and that has stuck with the game ever since, I love the game now, I'm under no delusions though, the game is a massive clusterfuck. I hope one day Capcom will return to making some more action orientated Resi's but at the same time continue to make more classic resi's too, probably asking too much but hey ho. I've finished Claire's A story, very enjoyable, I was afraid that the inventory management and backtracking would annoy me like the classics but it didn't bother me at all tbh. I had a shit tonne of ammo and consumables at the end which was a cake walk, I got a B rating. The enviroments are just so detailed and dense with atmosphere, probably my favourate aspect of the game coupled with the sound design. Mr X with that emotionless face stomping towards you wins the show for me, I didn't find the game scary but with him about I definately was feeling the pressure to get shit done quickly which led to some fatal mistakes. I would have liked to have seen a few additions like being able to swap shoulder camera and a simple dodge ability would have really polished the game off nicely for me. Those things missing didn't hamper my enjoyment though and perhaps they will appear in Resi 3 Remake if it gets made, I mean Resi 3 had a dodge ability so y'know. Looking forward to finishing Leon's A story although I'm seriously low on ammo but at least I have an idea of what to expect. Then I'll give B stories a go and whatever extra shiz there is to do. Great game though, totally worth the admission price.

    If going back is an option then I'll go and grab it but it's hopefully no biggy if I can't. I'm playing Claire A at the same time, further ahead so I at least know roughly what is coming up for Leon, some things are different which doesn't help but whatever.

    Is there any kind of new game+ upon completion? Gotta say I have to force myself to start a session with this as I dislike the backtracking and inventory management but once I'm in I really enjoy it. The sheer amount of detail put into the environments is outstanding, couple that with the superb audio atmosphere and old school music dlc and I'm in heaven.

    Metro Exodus - First on the Epic Store

    I've got no problem with the game being on the Epic storefront but this exclusivity nonsense can fuck off. Give me the choice to buy the game for my preferred pc gaming client day one, making the game exclusive to the Epic storefront for one year is not consumer friendly, it may be cheaper on there but that don't mean diddly squat when it's no longer available on Steam or anywhere else. Sad!

    I think I didn't finish Resi 2 because I got fed up with the Resi formula, I bought 3 some time after the release and really enjoyed it because it felt more linear and action orientated, less puzzles and backtracking. 4 was amazing, a real fucking blast. 5 also amazing. 6 hated it but now love it, sorry. 7 loved it but it went to shit once you get to the ship. 2 remake, loving it. But yeah, all Resi's are terrible especially 1, 2 and 3, sorry I just prefer 4, 5 and 6 Also yup, everything is indeed terrible.

    Resi 6 is a clear evolution of 5 which in turn is a evolution of 4. In 4 you can't move and shoot, movement is still quite tank-like, camera movement is restricted, swapping weapons/healing requires opening your inventory. In 5 you still can't move and shoot, camera is improved, you can now hot swap weapons and use consumables on the fly albeit it is limited, co-op is now a thing, gameplay has evolved from 4. Shit gets real in 6, now you can move and shoot, slide and shoot, shoot on your back, movement is more fluid, you can dodge in every direction, you have access to all weapons/consumables on the fly, mix herbs on the fly, take cover, no longer need to upgrade weapons. 6 is just a clear evolution of 5, to say it is a CoD wannabe is an insult to how far Capcom had progressed with their improvements of what 4 started and 6 became in terms of core gameplay which is action gameplay at its heart.

    Nah I don't think so, I heard somewhere that after Resi 3, Capcom believed horror games were too niche so they focused their next Resi game more on action. Capcom were on the gravy train after 4 & 5 so they tried throwing everything including the kitchen sink into 6 to create something that goes beyond what 4 and 5 do. Unfortunately they didn't seem to take a step back and take in the whole picture of what 6 would become, a big fucking mess but a beautiful over the top ridiculous big fucking mess. I admit I didn't like 6 when it came out but I've been playing it lately and tbh the core gameplay is better than 4 and 5. Yes the story is batshit insane(let's be honest 4 & 5 are too) and yes some of the games sections are rough but God damn it's so fun being able to dodge, slide, take cover, counter, reflex shoot, stomp, perform finishing moves etc. It's liberating to feel so agile in a Resi game and it makes sense because 6 is Capcoms attempt at taking 4 and 5 to the next level. In short, Resi 6 is a great game hampered by Capcom not cutting off the fat and polishing certain sections.
