    RDR2 - Massive Spoilers Thread

    I'm going with a more leftfield theory about Jack's parentage:

    Whilst Sony have rightly done well this gen with an excellent machine, marketing and software lineup, I think that they should also send Don Mattrick a case of fine wine for his contribution to the PS4's success.

    Things that all games should have

    Games which do not have this are unforgiveable in this day and age. To quote colour blindness stats: "Colour (color) blindness (colour vision deficiency, or CVD) affects approximately 1 in 12 men (8%) and 1 in 200 women in the world. In Britain this means that there are approximately 3 million colour blind people (about 4.5% of the entire population), most of whom are male" (source: http://www.colourblindawareness.org/colour-blindness/). That suggests that a large proportion of gamers have some form of colour blindness, which may be very mild but is infuriating when it has an effect. My son loves Splatoon, and has mild CVD. One of the things that I am sure helps him is the colour lock function that, when switched on, means one team is always orange and the other is always blue, two colours that are easy to distinguish for those with colour blindness. So simple, and so inclusive without detracting from other gamers' experiences. In fact, given the high rate of CVD it should (IMO) be an OS-level option that could be picked up automatically by games. The other thing that all games should have is Majima Goro.

    Greatest Videogame Tune

    It stands to reason that one of the coolest characters in gaming should have the coolest theme.

    Those RDR2 figures are ridiculous. In the space of two months about one in 40 people in the UK bought a copy of the game.

    Or find a local cinema showing it for Christmas.

    Christmas Fixin's 2019

    Perhaps a molten chocolate pudding? Something like this one should be doable in Japan, with access to an oven.

    Christmas Fixin's 2019

    I have ordered a beef fillet joint from Riverford so we are going to try beef wellington this year. Starter likely to be a simple baked camembert. Sides will be roast potatoes, sprouts (with chestnuts), roasted carrots and cauliflower cheese. My wife is great with cakes, and has been feeding the Christmas cake with brandy for the last few weeks as well as letting her mincemeat mature. So no need to worry about dessert.

    What are you playing Christmas Day?

    My son gets the TV on Christmas Day because I am cooking. But he is getting Mario Party and Smash Bros Ultimate, so I imagine that I will be playing one of these with the wife and son in place of the more traditional Festivus Feats of Strength. Then in the evening, assuming that I am not sitting riveted to Mrs Brown's Boys (I will not be) I will be playing whatever I was given by the wife and son. I have suggested God of War or Spiderman.

    RDR2 - Massive Spoilers Thread

    I finished the epilogue last night, and following that I would be amazed if R* are not currently working on a remake of RDR1. R* really did an incredible job with this. The storytelling throughout is incredible and even some dodgy controls do not hamper the game. I felt genuinely gutted at Arthur's fate. The little touches, like John wearing Arthur's hat and using the ring that he was going to give to Mary, are beautifully done. I also like the narrative call-backs. The first time we see the Pinkerton agents are when Arthur is taking Jack fishing. IIRC, Jack takes his revenge on Ross in RDR1 by confronting him on a fishing trip. Anyway, despite a number of legendary animals being unhunted I think that I have had my time with this game for now. A wonderful piece of work and a worthy contender for GoTY in year with strong competition.

    Ever been totally hooked on one game?

    I got quite into the first two Borderlands games. I think that I maxed out all of the characters through multiple playthroughs. Pinging the helmets off the Goliaths and watching them windmill into their own team, levelling up as they go so that their loot becomes better, never gets old. In contrast, it was a real slog to complete the Borderlands Pre-Sequel. Whilst I am sure that I was a bit fatigued of the franchise by that point there was also a massive drop in quality which did it no favours.

    They're doing this on purpose now, aren't they?

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    The DF video reveals a small, albeit stupid, oversight. Remember the bit in MGS when you were told to check on the game box for the radio frequency that you needed to proceed (included as an anti piracy measure)? Still in the game. It just feels like a really sloppy effort from Sony. All these little mistakes, contributing to a product which should have been so much greater. Especially when the psp, which is now 14 years old, does PSX emulation near-perfectly.
