  1. @peeveen I agree wholeheartedly. I never managed to get the timed final challenge done and I would now be way to rusty on the various puzzle types to attempt it, but I'm actually quite tempted to run the entire thing again and try and finish it off. Fantastic game.
  2. I think it's this. Xbox Live Gold has been a terrible proposition for ages now (basically since launching Game Pass) as the online experience is just the same as every other platform and the games are now consistently shit every month. It's basically just an Xbox tax and I think they are now just trying to make it as unattractive as possible so people suck up the little bit extra and go for Game Pass Ultimate (which is definitely a much much better offer) and help towards their overall subscription service strategy. They probably just feel they can't get away with canning it altog
  3. Everything but this please I really like the sub-30 min average running time as I find I can usually fit one in when I'm in the mood regardless of my schedule. Hour long things always get backed up for months until I have the time to watch them. More episodes would be good though.
  4. Finished S3 last night... as with all of them it has a few hokey moments - and the kids bits can sometimes be a bit meh - but overall I really enjoyed it again and put it firmly above S2 quality wise. I'm basically game for any section where Johnny Lawrence is the focus, I just think they've done really well with that character arc and made him somehow vulnerable, short-tempered, sensitive, funny, stupid and also fundamentally still a bit of a prick. The mix is weirdly likeable though. The Kreese origins were good too, and I felt we finally got a bit of pay off from t
  5. My boy got me (or rather my wife got him it to give me) the limited edition version of the "Art of Jedi: Fallen Order" book for my birthday and it really is excellent. I've got quite a few concept art books for various games and films and this one is right up there. The one I got is the same as below but I believe the actual content of the book is the same as the standard edition which is much cheaper. Great compliment to my concept art book for The Mandalorian.
  6. They look smart @Thor Where from? We bought a friend one of these for a recent 'big birthday'...
  7. Gris (PS5) - If you were to be critical of this indie platformer you could perhaps accuse it of being a little bit style over substance, especially for the first half where the platforming is very basic. But my word what tremendous style it has! It is undoubtably one of the most beautiful games I've ever played, with silky smooth movement/animation and a frankly outstanding score by Berlinist. It has an enigmatic narrative that feels almost like a sister piece to things like Journey which I also hold so dear. And as the game gets going it does introduce some nice ideas and a few interesting, i
  8. @cavalcade Wow. Obviously you are totally entitled to like or not like whatever you want, but I'm not sure I've seen a pair of such polar opposite posts to my own view in quite a long time! The Mandalorian and The Expanse are probably my favourite sci-fi shows since Space: Above and Beyond, and I really didn't get on with either Firefly* or BSG. Still life would be dull if we all liked the same things though so it's all good. * I appreciate I'm in a massive minority on this based on most people I know but I found Firefly the definition of 'meh'.
  9. Thanks @shirubagan. I'm planning on getting Apple Arcade this month to try Little Orpheus, The Last Campfire and The Pathless so will put this on the list too. I've liked UsTwo's games previously (and actually met some of their studio too and they are a really nice bunch).
  10. Probably because I've just realised I'm thinking of 3-1 not 2-1... Sorry!
  11. There are some black phantoms are just part of the game that you have to beat. Black world tendency can spawn more of them just as enemies though. @tobert Are you referring to a certain enemy that is down some steps and then on a wide staircase leading up to a big door in 2-1? If so that one is present whatever the tendency I believe.
  12. Boxed off Uncharted 4 last night after 15 odd hours. I really enjoyed it despite the traditional terrible combat/cover systems that all the series has. The platforming was great though, and I thought the visuals and writing were a cut above where they have been before. The epilogue was just lovely too and a really nice way to round off the Nathan Drake story. I hope they never make another one but I suspect that is wishful thinking. Just purchased Gris so think I may give that a whirl next before getting back into something meatier.
  13. Same for me. Lots of Nexus rolling post bosses. Pure white everywhere.
  14. Well may as well kick the year off Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (PS5) - This is the best Uncharted game and that tells you everything you need to know about it. The combat/cover systems are still as janky and annoying as ever, the platforming is great, the QTE set pieces are spectacular but massively over used, and the plot is stupidly far fetched but very entertaining. Standard Uncharted. However this one really nits things together well with some great levels, top-notch writing and voice performances, and genuine heart at the centre of the narratives. It looks frankly asto
