  1. God of War was intended to be a Greek mythology version of Onimusha, which was itself a Ninja version of Resident Evil. I don't really see the through-line to NES side-scrollers, tbh.
  2. Just completed a great bit: Is that a point of no return or just them telling me to go and do some side quests?
  3. PS5 release is great news! Hope it supports 120Hz.
  4. The game feels much less solitary than the first. That was you and your son on a journey in a very barren world. This feels very Disney like in comparison - everything feels more cartoonish and for me a lot of it falls a bit flat. There are loads of characters and everyone gets their own time to shine as per the "episode" model Kevvy suggests. It's still keeping me playing but it's nowhere near as good as 2018. It's really, really long, so there's plenty more to come and it may yet convince but I think the "more is more" approach is a poor one and it almost makes me think of Halo where they explained all the fascinating stuff from the first game and ruined most of it. Nowhere near as badly, but this doesn't feel restrained in any way.
  5. Those berserkers feel really cheap. The more DPS you do initially, the fewer health drops you get and then for the last 1-2 chunks of health they take less damage. I did Hardrefill last night and you can unleash Rage plus 4 L1+R1/2 attacks on his last bit of health and not take him out - the game wants you to do it "properly". The GoW version of rubber banding in racing games.
  6. I just got the: This feels a lot like Arkham City to GoW 2018's Arkham Asylum. More is better, right? We better flesh out all of the side characters! I think a lot of the writing for Kratos is quite poor. They try to keep him restrained and then go overboard. I nearly puked when:
  7. Thought there were some a couple of pointless spoilers in the trailer. Adam Warlock reveal would have been nice left in the actual thing but the main one being:

    I was there a few weeks ago but didn’t bother popping in, which I regret now. I don’t like their coffee at all (I refuse to believe anyone drinks it without milk) but it’s probably the most interesting coffee shop in London.
  9. Currently on Lake of the Nine:
  10. That article looks like computer generated garbage but I’d love a sequel.
  11. I've just finished up the Vanaheim sidequests and am headed back to Alfheim to see what's behind that spooky door in the dessert.
  12. I didn’t know it wasn’t well liked. I haven’t seen it so bought it and don’t know how anyone would have seen it for less without pirating it.
  13. This you? Though that is specific to the very first stage, I suppose.
  14. Best fight in any From game by quite some distance. It is quite annoying when someone (probably Benny) tells you that youI’ll be smashing the first few stages in no time at all but it really is worth it and he’s absolutely right. ISS isn’t really about raw skill - once you recognise his attacks and know how to counter them, he’s not that difficult. The final stage is probably the easiest so long as you know how to do the requisite counter properly.
  15. I think I’m at the end of the first Angrboda bit - just got: And I found that entire section so tedious. Boring tasks while she talks in boring riddles. I’m kind of amazed that they let it go on for as long as they do. I don’t have any strong feelings on where the story is going but I would be interested to know how much of it was decided at the time of the ending of the first game because the whole:
  16. I find the sudden lean into more humour and cutesy stuff a bit jarring in this, and am a bit surprised by the decision to do so. I'm not massively opposed to it, but it does feel like a distinct shift from the first game. Ratatoskr is pretty cool though. I find Angrboda really quite irritating, but I think that's sort of what they're going for, the whole "blunt and socially inept waifu" thing.
  17. Jan: nuffink. February: Sekiro (£10). Elden Ring. March: zero April: nada May: zilch June: Horizon: Forbidden West. July: Nope August: nuh uh September: that’s a no from me, dawg October: 0 November: God of War - Ragnarok This is gonna be easy but I wish it wasn’t. Seem to be very bored of games. Am enjoying Ragnarok, though. Got Sifu and Evil West on my list of things I want, too.
  18. I thought they binned the no cuts for this game? It does feel very weird running around the world tree waiting for a door to load in that doesn't need to load in. But the dialogue is almost always meaningful, so hats off to them.
  19. Bit surprised by the lack of chat in here. Topic seems much shorter than I would expect, but on reflection I’ve played a good bit of this (just finished Alfheim side quests) and while I’m enjoying it I don’t have much to say about it. Feels like more of the same but a bit more linear. I realised the Hateful have moments where they’re very vulnerable to a ranged attack and that made them a lot easier to deal with (if you hit them when they try to do that fire AOE attack they explode and take a load of damage). Some really nice moments as well, like when Mimir offers why Kratos wanted to do that side quest in the dessert. Bit on the nose but I think the series has earnt it.
  20. So happy for them. Government are awful but Saudis are generally lovely, football mad and have had a crap run in previous World Cups.
  21. Watched seasons 1, 2 and 11 eps of 3. Wasn’t bad, just a bit tedious. The explainy fights were very dull and the show isn’t as zany as everyone seems to think it is.
  22. I have a 5 hour flight coming up and access to Netflix, Disney and Amazon. Any anime recommendations? Have watched One Punch Man, watched some JoJo and wasn’t a fan. Have also seen NGE. Otherwise pretty open to anything. I need to finish Mob Psycho but think that’s only on CrunchyRoll. Are the anime Witcher or Cyberpunk things any good?
  23. I’m enjoying this but it feels like a bit of a 2018 reskin at the moment. The early boss fight felt like the Baldur fight but not as good, and now I’m pootling around Svartelheim and it feels way, way too similar to when you first get to the big lake in Midgard, even down to the banter when you’re in the boat. My main complaint is that Atreus is way too helpful. Like didn’t even give me a second to figure out the geyser puzzle before ruining it for me. In a game with so much accessibility customisation it’s weird they don’t let you tell him to cool it with the hints.
