    Fall Guys

    At laaast!! Got a win under my belt. Won by miles too
  2. Oh man that is shaping up really nicely. Think that and Spider-Man Morales are my games for PS5, assuming this will run a bit better on PS5 than base PS4

    NieR: Automata

    My kids were visiting for the weekend, and my son eyeballed Nier and started playing on Friday. He smashed through a first run through and loved it, and because of that I’ve given it a second chance this evening. And what do you know I quite enjoyed myself. Let’s hope it sticks.

    NieR: Automata

    Maybe I’ll give it another go in a few days or so. I was in a bloody grumpy mood last night after a shit day at work which won’t have helped. It’s a game I really want to like - it seems to have a good heart.

    NieR: Automata

    Alas I’ve tried again this evening but I just can’t eke any enjoyment out of this at all. It’s too floaty and flimsy and although I love the music and what the story is hinting at it’s just not fun. Ah well, expensive lesson but I think I’ll stick with my boring old Sony big budget games you all hate so much

    Fall Guys

    Played for a couple of hours last night and think I only had one network fail. Seemed much more solid. My first win must be getting close... made it to a bunch of finals and got close a handful of times but never quite strong enough to win.

    Fall Guys

    Getting closer. Think I missed a win on crown falls by about 3 frames. Slime Climb continues to be my nemesis

    Fall Guys

    Grrrr. Nearly got my first win, with the keep the tail final. Five seconds to go and I sodded cutting a corner and my tail was gone

    Fall Guys

    Fucking Slime Climb!!! Not even got close to the top - no idea how to get through the bit with the shovers. Grrrrr

    Fall Guys

    I’ve managed a third spot and NEARLY won a final where you grab the crown, then fucked it up under pressure and missed. I am shit at online games in general, this is nice in that it appears that everyone’s shit at it

    NieR: Automata

    Well I’d assumed my OS was cached in to my memory so maybe I’d just get a warning. Or something.

    NieR: Automata

    Played some more this evening. Started exploring an open world, then had a dig through the menus and thought, ooh what are these chip things? Unplugged one called OS to see what it did, and the game booted me out. Had to restart from my previous save. It’s really trying to make me not like it. Howevvvverr..... I did really enjoy the boss fight at the end of the prologue, and it’s got something about it that’s hooked me. Hoping to get some proper time with it tomorrow - spent ages this evening playing Fall Guys and sodding around with my new telly.

    Fall Guys

    I imagine they’re finding scaling bottlenecks all over the place, cloud/elastic computing can buy you a lot of insulation from these problems but ultimately it’s really hard to test. Looking forward to another bash tomorrow

    Fall Guys

    Yeah lack of invert has ruined me a couple of times. And the network instability a few times. And my general incompetence under pressure.

    Fall Guys

    Made it to the final round once and had to keep the tail. Lost it with five seconds left Great fun but hope they sort the servers out quickly.

    Fall Guys

    Can't wait to play this. A battle royale game I can get behind

    NieR: Automata

    Also... how are you supposed to lock on, fire and dodge at the same time?

    NieR: Automata

    Yeah but I really love Tsushima. This just feels janky so far. I’ll give it another shot tomorrow but feeling so far is four bog standard genres sort of plonked together randomly. With shit graphics. Im putting this down to bad first impressions though. Hopefully it’ll click after a few hours.

    NieR: Automata

    Just bought this based on the comments here... and after the first hour I’m completely baffled. This seems like a shit shoot em up with PS2 graphics and a control scheme that seemingly needs the addition of more fingers. What the hell have I just bought?
  20. 1. Luigi’s Mansion 3 (02/01) 2. Shadow of the Tomb Raider (03/01) 3. Jenny LeClue (04/01) 4. Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition (11/01) 5. Rise of the Tomb Raider (29/01) 6. Minecraft Dungeons (June) 7. Diablo 3 (June) 8. Animal Crossing New Horizon 9. Last of Us Remastered (23/6) 10. Last of Us Part Two (10/7) 11. Ghost of Tsushima (1/8) 12. Gris (2/8) Been meaning you play this for a while, and thought it’d be a nice contrast with big third person adventures. And... it was OK. Wasn’t really feeling much excitement about it but the final chapter/section was really quite something - really inventive and fun to figure out. Knocked through it pretty quick, and I have no real desire to play through again to pick up trophies but it was fun enough. And obvs very delightful to look at. 6/10. Pretty good
  21. And that’s the platinum done. Really enjoyed that, Sony finished the generation on a real high with TLOU2 and then this. What to play now, what to play now?
  22. That wasn’t my experience. It felt pretty engaging to me, a very strong sense of place. I agree that it pales next to RDR2 in terms of filling that world with interesting characters, although I’ve enjoyed the multi-part character stories a lot. I genuinely loved every hour I spent with it. It’ll be up there in my game of the year list.
  23. 1. Luigi’s Mansion 3 (02/01) 2. Shadow of the Tomb Raider (03/01) 3. Jenny LeClue (04/01) 4. Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition (11/01) 5. Rise of the Tomb Raider (29/01) 6. Minecraft Dungeons (June) 7. Diablo 3 (June) 8. Animal Crossing New Horizon 9. Last of Us Remastered (23/6) 10. Last of Us Part Two (10/7) 11. Ghost of Tsushima (1/8) Absolutely great Could have been 9 out of 10 With a bit more time A beautiful game With a great combat engine Satisfying heft An 8/10 Gonna platinum it now Well played Sucker Punch
  24. It’s my major complaint about the game, it’s beautiful and draws you in to explore but there are no real surprises - RDR2 and BOTW do that much better. However, GoT for my money is more fun to play *in the moment* - the combat is more fun, the world feels more alive. It’s a very different game that has strengths and weaknesses compared to those classics. That I can mention it in same breath as those two is a great compliment to Sucker Punch I’d love a sequel so much. What a PS5 native sequel could be like blows my mind - not just graphically but how they might use the new controller features, but also being able to invest more in the world.
  25. Gonna do the platinum here I think. Island is liberated so it’s just mopping up some collectibles and...
