  1. I’ve never been into cars, or ‘real life’ driving for that matter. I’m 45, but I only got my license 4 years ago. And yet I love Gran Turismo. Always have. Can’t wait to play this!
  2. My wife just offered to take the kids out for the day so I could play Elden Ring. No no no no no. No way. That is 100% a trap and I’m not taking her up on it.
  3. I really wanted the Claymore and someone on here (sorry, can’t remember who it was!) mentioned they’d just got it. They also said they’d been exploring the southern part of the map, so I just went off on an adventure, hoping that’s where they found it. After a couple of hours there it was. Man, that felt good.
  4. Also, here’s a picture of some terrible 360 era graphics, taken on my phone.
  5. Honestly, I think he likes it as much as me. Still here, getting in the way.
  6. I found a little cave network that had quite a few smithing stones in it…
  7. Not only am I being judged, but he’s getting in the way.
  8. Yep, went straight into my top 5 after I played it last year, it’s really really good.
  9. Yeah, I thought that was over fiddly.
  10. Yep, and the best thing about that is that the industry will no doubt take note when you consider the reception this has received.
  11. Have to agree on the shoddy Series X frame rate unfortunately. I don’t usually notice that sort of thing but I found it very off-putting here. Was tempted to get a refund and go PS5 but it sounds as if that’s unstable as well (albeit with some extra frames in play). Gonna stick it on my gaming monitor instead of the TV and hope that VRR does the business.
  12. I’m guessing running the Series X version at 1440p should help with the performance? Less bothered about 4k.
  13. Bit annoyed about the reports of poor PC performance. Might switch to console.
  14. Reviews in 45 mins. Anyone steering clear of them completely? Skillup has said his will be spoiler free so I might just listen to it to stoke that hype machine.
  15. I’m pretty sure with the Souls games, Miyazaki always said that the story was only ever piecemeal and it was left up to the player to interpret and fill in the gaps. I believe this was because that’s how he felt when reading a lot of fantasy books growing up.
  16. If this ends up as a 99 on metacritic there’s going to be uproar.
  17. Do you mean the £25 Argentinian version? Also tempted.
  18. I’d hate it if I found these games easy to be honest. You’d be robbed of the immense satisfaction you get from conquering what’s on offer.
  19. Oh, I’m sure we’ll all still have trouble if we come to a fight armed to the teeth! But then ‘easier’ doesn’t mean ‘easy’
  20. I believe it’s going to be more open and allow you to go off and do other things* if you come up against something too difficult, but I don’t for one minute believe they’re going to make any of the enemy encounters easier. *By ‘do other things’, I hope this to be a more involved and rewarding version of grinding. So instead of rinsing the Undead Burg fifty times to level up a bunch, you’ll achieve the same thing by clearing dungeons and exploring the environment.
  21. Understandably quiet in here at the moment, but just think, this time next week this thread is going to be spoiler tagged posts as far as the eye can see. Can’t wait.
  22. As somebody that is absolutely awful at videogames in general, and also as someone that has finished all the Souls games*, I can promise you that an easy mode in a FromSoft game would just kill what’s so great about them. The sense of accomplishment after you finally beat a boss after 100 attempts cannot be beaten. It’s at the very core of what sets these titles head and shoulders above the rest. *I sense some people thinking, “Well you can’t be that bad”, but the first Dark Souls took me 250 hours to complete.
