    Fallout 76 - Prepare Your GaaS Masks

    Bethesda Softworks have been resting on their laurels since Skyrim so hopefully the reaction to this game will be the kick up the arse that puts them back on track.

    Best 'not gamey' games

    Not a videogame but one episode of Black Earth Rising used black and white animation to show scenes from the Rwandan genocide. It wasn't a great series IMO but those bits were very well done.

    Giant Bomb's GOTY discussions in one succinct sentence.

    Alex suffered from the double whammy of playing 100+ hours of Origins, well into this year, and then having to play through all of Odyssey over just a few days. It's unfair on what is a much improved game but I'm pretty sure I'd have hated it under those circumstances too.

    Killer 7

    One of those game I'm glad I played through despite not really enjoying a second of it.

    Recommend me 'git gud' games!

    Ninja Gaiden 1&2 aren't just indifferent to you, the player, they actually want you to die, over and over. You can just about button mash as far as the first boss of NG1, but he will murder you if you try it on him. If you wimp out and knock the difficulty down you will be mocked and forced to wear a pink ribbon.

    Doctor Who

    Well this is a fun lecture on colonialism episode of Doctor Who.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    I got away with doing minimal side stuff for 30 hours or so, but there's a sudden jump at a certain point and I found myself several levels below the next story mission.

    Digitiser:The Show: Episode 2 out now!

    Towards the end of his run even that got pretty self-indulgent.

    Doctor Who

    I'm sure you're right and it's all going swimmingly. Anyway, better a bellend than a manjina, you Tom Nook-headed spunk receptacle.

    Doctor Who

    With that delightful level of badinage they should hire you to polish up the dialogue.

    Doctor Who

    Already lost a quarter of its ratings, apparently. Given that they can't really get rid of JW after just one series, their top priority for the next should be hiring some better writers and to ditch, or at least tone down, all the PC shit.

    Games you keep buying despite not liking them

    I keep buying Nobunaga's Ambition and Romance of the Three Kingdoms titles because I like the idea of playing these all encompassing historical strategy games on a console, but it all falls apart when I get my hands on the controller and my puny brain has to deal with all the strategising.
  15. I'm enjoying this game a lot. The sections where you have to scramble to escape from someone are incredibly tense, to the point where I'm messing up QTE's that I otherwise wouldn't, just through sheer panic. The only thing I'm not keen on is the flowchart between scenes, and the inability to turn it off. Imagine watching a film where it breaks down each scene in graph form just after you've watched it. It really interrupts the flow.

    Jesus, you weren't wrong. They must have been paying him by the word or something, with no penalty for incoherent rambling.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    I'm 35 hours in and at level 24, having mostly followed the main quest lines, the most recent of which was at my exact level. Leveling has been fine up to now. A sudden 3-level hike, then presumably another 3 or 4 level hike for the one after is asking a lot IMO. That's a good number of hours in this game.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    Having just completed a particular section of the main quest (for which I was at the correct level), and unlocked the next bit, I'm starting to understand the complaints about level requirements. The next quest is three levels above me, and the one after that seven above me. Given how slow the leveling is in this game, that's a lot of grinding side quests.

    It's understandable why he does this given that Jeff is his boss, but I wish he'd grow a pair and stand by what he thinks. Especially since Jeff is nearly always wrong.

    The Great British Bake Off

    Ruby for the win. The other two are weirdos.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    They should use this engine and some of the art assets to knock up a remake of Black Flag.

    Doctor Who

    It's down to her being a supporting actor in a lead actor's role. Nothing to do with her acting, just her presence, or lack of it.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    The Witcher 3 got a fair amount of stick for the heavy way Geralt controlled, so is this similar or worse?
  24. Trumpets

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Shenmue 2 did something similar years earlier (and to better effect IMO).

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    This is going to be a really divisive video game, isn't it?
