  1. I'll say Dead or Alive 2 by Takashi Miike. unimpeachable madness with a heart.
  2. Bloody hell, PS1 games could look lovely! I think I'd take the original over the remake visually speaking, as I find is so often the case with remakes and remasters. But I adore the Klonoa series so I'm just chuffed we're getting these and they look lovely all the same!
  3. When look back on the history of the series Resi sure has been a wild ride. So many highs and lows and crazy mixes of high and low at the same time. What a series.
  4. No no @Darwock I've been singing 13s praises since it came out pretty much and still love just as much to this day. I love 12 too but not quite as much. I've been pleased to see 13 slowly getting reappraised as the years go on and appreciated for the risks it took and vision it had. Can understand it's not everyone's cuppa of course.
  5. 1. Shenmue 2. Shenmue II 3. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty 4. Metal Gear Solid (1998 video game) 5. Metal Slug 2 6. Capcom vs. SNK 2: Mark of the Millennium 2001 7. Final Fantasy VII 8.

  6. Yeah I've always found it a bit weird how Kendrick often says bitch. It kind of rubs me the wrong way even more than with other rappers (and I don't like it then either though), I don't know why, maybe it's because it seems like he should know better and seems like he wants himself to be taken very seriously yet still loves a bit of casual sexism.
  7. Absolutely, I love game central and Jenkins, they never give a fig about hype and aren't afraid of going against the grain. I remember them giving Team Yu a little time of day too while the Shenmue 3 campaign was in full swing which only endeared me more to the little platform.
  8. Glad to see El Shaddai get a time extent. Lovely and unique game that I feared was largely forgotten about.
  9. Yeah Witchfinder is ok, made me chuckle a bit, but it's certainly not as good as their work on Partridge in my opinion and it's not a patch on the fantastic Upstart Crow either.
  10. Found a pretty nice video game-musicy Pizzicato 5 song on youtube called 'catwalk' and then found a St Etienne remix of it, double sweet Here's the original P5 song which could have come straight from P4 funnily enough Remix:
  11. Yeah I started this a few days ago and it's wonderful stuff, pretty much a dream game for me. Awesome space station setting, thoughtful and interconnected level design, a heap of gamey systems which interweave as cleverly as Talos 1 does, and most importantly the whole thing is just dripping in atmosphere. It just scratches that 'space station horror game' itch so good. I don't think I'd describe this game as a 'shooter' so much even though it kind of is, what it really reminds me of is my childhood memories with Castlevania, Metroid, or even early Resi games. It's beautiful and you can tell it's made by a bunch of geeks who were surely just making what they wanted to play.
  12. I haven't finished this yet, though I'm good way into it now (it's a big game!) and surely not too far off. I need to see how this ends before I figure out exactly how I feel about it all, but soulless it is not. It's a consummately made game, for sure. Still, I did go back to Death Stranding today, and returning to that glorious genius (not horrifically violent) lunacy felt so good after TLOU.
  13. I do find it interesting that so many consider this a challenging piece of storytelling, but I'm only on the first chapter (first day) so my opinion may well change and it's a wonderful thing we if we do end up having different opinions anyway. Maybe I am comparing it to Hollywood films of a bygone era, certainly not comparing it to marvel. But so far it just has all the traditional elements I imagine a big budget zombie blockbuster would have, maybe something starring Tom Cruise or Will Smith, or whoever their teenage equivalents are . There's nothing very unconventional so far. But I'll play to the end and give my final thoughts then.
  14. I finally started playing this, I was hoping this would be the first Naughty Dog game I love, but after 4 or 5 hours it seems to be having the same effect other ND games have on me and leaving me with a sense of apathy more than anything else. I don't know exactly what it is about all their games that leaves me cold, but I feel like they're always games that tick every box a critically acclaimed triple A game should tick, but I can't feel any soul in them. From story, characters to gameplay, it has everything a good game "should have", but the only exceptional thing that I can see about it is the polish and budget. I feel like I'm watching the latest Hollywood blockbuster, just as I did with Uncharted (albeit a different genre). I get the feeling ND wants to make movies far more than Hideo Kojima ever has. I would go as far as to say that ND's whole thing is refining the gaming status quo until it seems almost groundbreaking, except it isn't. Nothing wrong with all that though, and I'll keep on with this game as it's only early days still and it might still win me over.
