  1. I really enjoyed TW3 but I continue to feel kinda meh about this in general. I've watched all the gameplay stuff they've put out so far and none of it has wowed me at all. The world looks nice but the combat looks pretty standard really and none of the writing has landed with me at all. Although for the writing I will say that I didn't really expect much from TW3 based on the trailers in terms of writing and tone and I was wrong about that so I'm hoping that's the case here.
  2. Worth giving this a read https://kotaku.com/as-naughty-dog-crunches-on-the-last-of-us-ii-developer-1842289962. It includes the quote "Even in an industry where overtime is ubiquitous, where it’s near-impossible to find a game that isn’t the result of weeks or months of crunch, Naughty Dog stands out." I think both TSH and Spacehost are right, it's a universal problem but Naughty Dog (and Rockstar) do seem to be particularly bad.
  3. Sekiro for me. Never really enjoyed the combat in the rest of the Souls games but Sekiro has the best third person combat I've ever played.
  4. Any indication if they'll be launching with a shorter game mode?
  5. I wonder did this rule about only talking about a game you've played happen in the Fallout 76 thread? Or the Anthem thread?
  6. To be fair this whole thread has been created off the main thread to talk about the problems Grindmouse has with the game. Seems pretty shitty to tell him to leave a thread specifically for that purpose.

    Yep that's the one. It's a fun co-op game I'm just not sure how it stands up as a single player one.

    Hi all. If anyone needs some isolation company, myself my brother and my best friend do a goty podcast in the Giant Bomb style (of two years ago) with categories, cuts and a top 3. We've done it for the past four years but this is the first year we feel brave enough to share it with people. The reason we wait until March is that we wanted to play as many games as possible so we could have a good conversation. Here's the link if you're at all interested, first episode is Best Looking and Best New Mechanic or Feature. https://www.listennotes.com/podcasts/double-click-boys/game-of-the-year-2019-dYTa_OyXElP/
  11. Yeah I think it'll be fun for people who enjoyed Larian's recent stuff.
  12. I think it could be a cool game, but it's not just a D&D game, it's a Baldur's Gate game and that comes with expectations. I really like rtwp and I'm pretty disappointed they've decided to go turn based, but it's not a deal breaker. It's more that there was nothing in that hour or so presentation that looked anything like Baldur's Gate. It's Divinity Original Sin.
  13. Really disappointed by the preview. They’ve made Original Sin 3 but in 5th edition. There’s not a single bit of Baldur’s Gate about any of it.
  14. I'm hoping the HUD is something that's further down the line. Going from Baldur's Gate character portraits to what's shown there is a big step down. As for everything else it's hard to tell from just screenshots but it looks more like D:OS3 than BG3. Hope that's not the case.
  15. I wouldn't be that harsh on Bloodborne and DS3.
  16. Finally got A20 on Silent. On to the Defect now.
  17. Devil Daggers. It's a lot like the games you've mentioned and is like 5 quid.
  18. The battlefield level is something else. Really took my breath away.
  19. It relies a lot on the rat puzzles (which are great). When it just becomes a stealth game it feels like 10 years old.
  20. Lads how on a week where Ben wasn't on the show is Ben still all that you can talk about?
  21. I wasn't really sure where to put this, but myself and some friends are playing a D&D campaign I've built in the Neverwinter Nights engine. We recently came off a 4 year campaign in 5e using Roll20 but for something different I wanted to try this. It's basically a world I've built in the toolkit and then I use the DM client in NWN as they play through it. It allows you do to some really unique things in a D&D campaign mostly involving physical representation of things and space. I did a short(ish) video on some neat things you can do in the engine if anyone is interested. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiGqF6GUTZc&feature=youtu.be
  22. Just wait until Clash of Clans is on Switch.
