  1. Seems like games that rely on timing or reflexes are a bad fit for this i.e. most games I enjoy. Can we not get quantum entagled controllers or something to fix it. Come on scientists.
  2. Once all this predictive AI gets really good - am I even playing the game any more?
  3. I found out that there's a woman in my office who is a former World no.2 Tetris player (for some PC-based version of Tetris). She offered to win some games for me, the cheeky minx. I asked her for some tips and she said "play well"... so basically "git gud" :-D Pressed further, she said "don't target random, cos that's pointless and make sure you have badges going into the last 10". Like I can think about stuff like that when I'm going into top 10!
  4. I've played about 120 games and haven't won one. Yet.
  5. I checked out how to set up a perfect clear tetris but now I obsess about them and keep getting shafted.
  6. This is fantastic. 4th place is my best so far but even enjoying getting blitzed out in the first 10 seconds as you can in another game so quick. The menu screens look like they've left plenty of space for additional features, I wonder what's they'll be?
  7. Universal tips? Think about the order of your moves and attacks. It can make all the difference, for example softening up a target with a strong but ineffective unit can let your weak unit finish them off when attacking first would have wiped the weak unit out. A weakened unit is still useful (they can capture buildings, block squares, be healed etc.) so don't kamikaze them. Use and abuse critical hits/terrain bonuses (e.g. in Wargroove pikeman get a critical if they're beside another pikeman, units in a river get a -3 defensive penalty) and plan your moves and attacks accordingly. Capture buildings as soon as you can. They usually add to your revenue each turn, sometimes they let you build units and if you have them, then the enemy doesn't.

    Major new online game coming this year from Nintendo.

    Probably just () Animal Crossing.
  9. You, a bright-eyed young gamer: "I'm going to have so much fun with the campaign creation and cutscene editor!" Me, a jaded old bastard: "I get so little time to play games these days I'll be lucky if I finish single-player mode."

    Gaming Predictions 2019

    Capcom's release of a free-to-play version of Street Fighter V immanentizes the Eschaton.
  11. Game of the Year A1. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate A2. God of War A3. Red Dead Redemption 2 A4. Astro Bot A5. Hollow Knight (Switch) Biggest Disappointment of the Year (game, hardware, or anything else) Z1. Street Fighter V Z2. Playstation Classic Z3. Capcom Z4. Z5. Sound Design of the Year S1. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate S2. Astro Bot S3. Red Dead Redemption 2 Visual Design of the Year V1. Astro Bot V2. Red Dead Redemption 2 V3. Writing of the Year W1. Red Dead Redemption 2 W2. W3. Gaming Format (System) of the Year F1. Switch Publisher or Developer of the Year P1. Sony Best Supported Game (released pre 2018) of the Year B1. No Man's Sky Your game of the year that didn't come out this year (basically what is your favourite game you played this year that came out in 2017 or earlier) X1. Street Fighter III 3rd Strike Best game character of the year C1. Astro Bot C2. Boy (Atreus) C3.
  12. If they are testing the waters for SF6 then that saddens me. Do we have to have microtransactions and ads and all this grasping bullshit? It's like taxing the fanbase to line the pockets of rich eSports cunts. I'd rather they switched to a subscription model, pay £3.99 a month and get access to everything while your sub is active.
  13. Wasn't Street Fighter x Tekken going to be F2P? But Capcom got cold feet and that's where the shitty gems came from. But yeah, this is just another terrible decision in a long line of terrible decisions. I hear the loading screen takes longer with ads on, is that right?

    Dark Souls Remastered

    Confession: I've never finished a Souls game I like them but I always end up getting frustrated and moving on to something else. But I couldn't resist Remastered for the Switch and I'm currently having fun playing through with a Cleric Knight. I'm also kind of stuck now. The Hydra was easy but Sif battered me. Been haning out in the Catacombs but think I'll go back and give Sif another go as I'm fed up getting done over by the Titanite Demon and I'm too scared to head into the Tomb of the Giants. Sure it's been said a million times before but the toughest enemies for me are the environment + camera.
