  1. I picked up the game on launch, played some campaign and played some multi. Hadn't touched the multiplayer in a week when I came back to it last night...got totally wrecked across the board; thought I'd play support roles and kitted myself out with extra shields etc but I didn't make a difference. I need to do some reading/watching to catch up the best way to do things.
  2. Hotspot is the best content they put out right now. Great to have Six Crazy Frights back, shame Abby didn't have VR for the latest, Phasmophobia, episode but it was still fun. Also, is Abby working out of an office now? When did that happen? I thought she'd just sorted a room out in her apartment.
  3. It's okay to not like Abby...
  4. I know she is, strictly speaking, a 'producer' but her lack of industry knowledge has reared it's head many times recently ('I didn't care about E3 until I got this job'). If it was a more mainstream site, IGN, Gamespot etc then I'd forgive it but she is on a really niche site with a hardcore audience, I am surprised they didn't vet her interest level before being hired.
  5. I think this is the beginning of the end for the site, it's been on this downward spiral for the past year really; where they seem to be putting in as little effort in as possible. GOTY last year was such a rush job, the group doesn't seem to all play the latest release so they have something to talk about and during the pandemic (which is a tough situation) they are producing the same 4 or 5 bits of content over and over. You've got 4 full time 'producers' on staff and yet there are one man bands on youtube producing higher quality content off of their own back. I can't see the new owners loo

    All games based around grabbing (team variants included) need to go!
  7. Was anyone, Giantbomb or otherwise, really frothing at the mouth for Tsushima? Outside of it's unique setting it doesn't really look like anything more than 'Samurai Creed' as mentioned previously; I lost interest the moment I saw it was an open world game. Always felt like Days Gone to me, there was 'hype' that wasn't relative to the actual quality of the game.
  8. I just finished playing this last week, first time since playing it back in 2004 and it's still as great to play as it was back then. To me it represented a time in games where it was about pushing forward in all aspects of the medium; narrative and technlogy, hand in hand, to create worlds, alternate realities, opposed to rollercoasters of entertainment we have now. Either that or a less cycnical me didn't see the industry as the business it was and turned out to be. Anyway! I was quite suprised by the game length, my younger version must have got stuck a fair few times or just to
  9. I'm about to start the last chapter and it's been very playable the whole time; both my CPU and GPU are overclocked for what it's worth; CPU at 4.2ghz and GPU with a 200mhz boost. I've found myself more CPU bound than anything so you'll probably be totally fine.
  10. I'm running it on a 970 & 2600k. Settings are low, apart from textures, soft cloth and rag dolls, and it runs totally fine outside of an initial burst of action be it multiple enemies appearing or an explosion but it settles down quickly; you'll be fine.
  11. Hopefully this gives the ESA time to actually work out what they want to do with the show instead of the desperate throw a dart at the wall technique they have been using the past few years. I can totally see this being the end of road for the show though as it's a convenient jump off point for all involved and no one has to take responsibility because next year 'We have evaluated the potential for an industry inclusive expo event but 'market conditions' have made this unfeasible so look at this digital offering!'. It's been on the decline for 3 years anyway, put it out of it's mis
  12. Watched this earlier in the day and I'd if you have time then the whole match is worth a watch, it's a roller coaster ride.
  13. Yeah, it's pretty disgusting. I get if people don't like any members of crew, they are people after all and you wont like everyone, but the level of personal insults become ridiculous. It's how I ended up here, seems like it isn't such a heated, short fused place. I wouldn't go quite that far, resetera is in the middle of weird dance right now.
  14. I wouldn't expect him to give me a break down of all the various USB standards there are but knowing what the generic term is really isn't a big ask for someone in his field. The problem with Ben is he can't sit there and let someone else talk, he needs to be the center of attention with his most common tactic being to insert his 'humour'. The amount of times he has interrupted Jeff & Brad, especially during the Bombcast, to add absolutely nothing of value is staggeringly high. He is a frequent recipient of comments like 'That's a thing', 'it sure is' or other simple social cu
  15. Ben Pack, employed 40 hours a week to talk about games and tech: "What is USB C?"...
