  1. The recent Lupe Kendrick twitter stuff has made me listen to Lupe who somehow I have never really listened to before. I had no idea he was such a lyrical monster.
  2. Dorehedoro was a wonderful surprise after randomly trying it. One of the best anime shows I've seen in some time. Such a weird and imaginative world. Pretty funny and lighthearted for the most part too despite being incredibly violent.
  3. Been on an Isley tip recently and this is a sweet jam I'd forgotten about
  4. Really? Wow, that's great then! I'll try that, thanks
  5. I'm on chapter 3 of this game I think, and enjoyed what I played but I kept having the feeling that the fact I don't have a PSN subscription was going to make the game even more of a slog than it's supposed to be, building roads and stuff seems pretty much impossible. I haven't played it in a while and would like to go back, but does it still remain enjoyable to play offline?
  6. Still have two more eps to go of this, but it is just stunning, the best thing I've seen on tv for ages. Heartbreaking, funny, and feels realer in all its complexity and weirdness than most things on tv.
  7. Loving the new perspective and appreciation of FF13 on this page. I flipping love the original FF13 (never played its two sequels though), loved it from the moment I first played it and still do. I think at the time of its release its lack of openness really blinded many a fan to its charms and braveness. Like Sprite said up the page, I've always been into FF for the characters and epic story, I can take or leave the openness, so I always clicked with 13, but I do think there is a lot be said for its tighter linearity, now more than ever.
  8. The new Ka album Descendants of Cain is predictably amazing for anyone who is a fan of his sombre music. I reckon this might be his best yet though, his penmanship just gets better and better. "our yogis did stretches upstate"!!!
  9. Eff me, that absolute banger has just made me reappraise my whole opinion of the Yakuza series. They are all masterworks!.
  10. Well this looks unbelievably good. I was one the biggest naysayers early on, but I'm happy to eat my words if it's as good as it looks, episodic or not. I can't even believe graphics like those are possible on PS4, it looks like a PS5 game.
  11. I utterly agree with this. I have finally just completed S3, and for me it was just pure joy from start to finish. It was everything I I could have hoped a Shenmue 3 would be but didn't dare to. The game must have been coded in love, it's almost overwhelming, around every corner there's some gorgeous sight or beautiful and entirely unnecessary (for any other game) detail. The kids playing in the flowers, the glow worms, the butterflies, the smudges on the hotel door glass, playing that face Rock Paper Scissors game with Shenhua, the cute QTE fail cut scenes, the innocent questions you and She
  12. Put me in the "the bad reviews have only hyped me more" category. This is what I've always wanted, Kojima totally untethered and out of control. A perfect storm of insane hubris, budget and creative freedom. This was always likely to be a mess, but it's going to be a beautiful mess of the like we don't get enough of. Something a bit different at last, thank god.
  13. Me too, but in a good way. Yu Suzuki is still a mad man
  14. I really like the album, but I agree that some of the uber ignorant content made me want to turn it off at moments. There's some moments of self awareness in there, but hearing lyrics about passing bitches to his homies or whatever is just puerile from Gibbs at this stage. I always surprised when rappers who have had charges of sexual assault brought to them carry on with these kinds of lyrics. I know gibbs beat his case, but still, you'd think he'd a little less forthcoming with those kinds of misogynistic bars.
  15. Those beat switches on Bandanna are orgasmic. Amazing album, better than the first for me.
  16. Decent article here: http://www.phantomriverstone.com/2019/06/pc-version-is-timed-exclusive-for-epic.html Let's be a level headed and patient about this.
  17. I'm loving this delay, I didn't wait like 15 years for Shenmue 3 just to come out in the summer time! Even though the first Shenmue will always be the epitome of a Christmas game to me, the whole series is associated in my mind with that time of year.
  18. It's already been mentioned and it's been absolutely years since I've played, but I remember Otogi being an incredibly beautiful and haunting game. One of my gaming regrets is that I never played its sequel.
  19. I find when I'm out and about lately some bit from this series will pop into my head, usually something that didn't really sink in while I was actually watching, and it will just cause me to struggle to suppress the laughter. I was on the tube yesterday and it was the hairdresser conversation with Lynn: "volumised at the crown", "a cross between Margret Thatcher and a brown cloud". Like the best of Partridge, its hilarity just kind of creeps up on you.
  20. Haven't got the game yet, but one thing I like the sound of from these impressions is precisely the thing some are disappointed with, the lack of endlessly deep customisable rpg elements. It's one of the things I think always put me off Souls, having to get my head around stats and muddle around with endless bits of armour and weapons in menus. It's too intimidating. And just looking at the last page of the Nioh thread and reading about the deluge of largely pointless loot gives me a headache. Not knocking those games at all. But I think I might actually welcome the difficulty here
  21. I think one potential argument against the inclusion of an easy mode is players like me. I'm one of those people who always habitually choose easy mode when given the option, I always have since childhood as I've always considered myself crap at games despite loving them. Even when I see people on this forum rave about how much better a game is on hard mode, I just won't ever willingly select it. However, sometimes a challenging game without selectable difficulty comes along, manages to sink its hooks in me inspiring me to persist and forcing me out of my comfort zone to learn its ways and p
  22. These guys are more down with the youth than you lot! Banger.
  23. I'm not going to lie, as a longtime listener of gangster rap some of these UK Drill tunes are legitimately good. Headie One is a standout for me. But this stuff is really dark, I find a lot of straight up unlistenable because of it, maybe because I'm older now or maybe because it seems so much more realistic than older forms of gangster rap seemed. It's morbid. And yet I think I'll always be interested in the music the youth of this country are making. It clearly says something about society that the music has taken such a dark turn.
