    What are the most varied game series?

    Final Fantasy is unrecognisable from what it was in the 16 bit days, although not necessarily for the better IMO.

    IGN writer busted copying other people's reviews

    All this piling on and hunting his work for other people's sentences is slightly weird. The guy's been sacked already, leave him be.

    Okami HD

    Yet another way of playing Okami is all well and good but they should really make another one, or at least a spiritual sequel. Imagine how that art style could look liberated from the PS2 and developed on current hardware...

    Tomb Raider Anniversary Edition Announced

    Exactly how I feel also. What I wouldn't give for a new game (doesn't even have to be Tomb Raider) with the same sense of venturing alone into old tombs and exploring them, killing the odd bat or tiger or dinosaur and prodding some ancient machinery. The Souls games have some of that atmosphere but it's not really the same. Having said that, Anniversary is indeed very good.

    IGN writer busted copying other people's reviews

    It was the Dead Cells review that caught him out, but people haven't stopped digging... http://www.kotaku.co.uk/2018/08/11/former-ign-reviewer-responds-to-plagiarism-allegations-not-at-all-intentional It's insane that a professional game reviewer would try this, but who knows, perhaps it goes on all the time and we've only just noticed. It's all academic now since he's no longer employed there...but a simple 'sorry' would be welcomed.

    No Man's Sky

    I found this huge ring that turns slowly but otherwise I've no idea what it does. I pressed a button at one end but nothing happened... Taking a break to watch space television, although sadly he hasn't learned how to do chairs yet. This would have been a nicer shot if I'd remembered to remove the control bar at the bottom.

    Blimey, how long did that take?

    That's what I thought also, but I tried to fit a fourth S-drive shortly after I posted that and the game wouldn't let me, so three seems to be the maximum, letting me go 1300ly each jump. Doing the maths on that, from where I am in the galaxy, if I completed full jump every minute it would take me TEN HOURS to get to the middle, and that's without having to stop now and then to refuel. Fuck. That. Since wormholes are currently bugged out in my game I'll have to look for another way to get there, portals maybe?

    No Man's Sky

    Just found out (after 65 hours of play) that warp drives 'stack', so putting several S-spec drives next to each other lets you warp ~2000ly, with each warp using only a few percent of fuel. I'm now stocking up for an epic push towards the galactic core.

    Episodic gaming: Has it worked?

    It ruined the Dreamfall sequel I waited ten years for, so no.

    No Man's Sky - Photo Gallery

    This is derivative of a couple of earlier posts in this thread, but it shows off my cool new ship so I don't care.

    No Man's Sky

    I've realised I'm basically playing this like a space hippy, with no real objective, just drifting around and seeing what happens, enjoying the cosmic nature of the universe. My attention span is getting shorter every year but this game somehow bypasses it completely, and I'm able to play for hours at a time. Yesterday I traded in my fully-specked out exotic ship for a slightly nicer looking exotic ship, so now I have to collect all the nanite chips I need to upgrade everything again, and I'm fine with that.
  13. I'm still looking forward to playing this but music situation is a complete shit show from every angle. 1) the composer is an apologist for Japanese atrocities in WW2. 2) he insists on horrible bleep-bloop MIDI quality music in-game, when an orchistrated OST already exists. 3) from what I've heard of it, the music is pretty uninspired anyway, as you might expect from a guy in his 80s. It wouldn't be very Japanese to turf him out and get some fresh composing talent in, but surely this situation can't continue?

    No Man's Sky

    I did quest 9 post-patch and didn't receive the blueprint, so God knows. Ah well, no biggie - I've just upgraded my warp drive to go over 800ly each jump, so I've decided to stock up on warp fuel and sprint to the centre of the galaxy instead.
