    Any of Sony's third person action/adventure games.

     

    All the same developed by numbers and focus tested mediocrity. Dressed up in pretty clothes and employing the same tricks on repeat.

    I’ve played a fair bit of GOW 2018, Forbidden West* and Days Gone. I can’t say I’ve disliked any of them, but feel no enthusiasm to go back to them. They were all super slick and technically impressive, but… I don’t know.


    Objectively, I know they’re good games - but there’s no hook for me. I might go back to all, or some of them and try again - but there’s so little time in the day. Maybe if I was a teenager I’d play the shit out of them.

     

    *I played a lot of the first Horizon but remember little about it. I think I liked it.

    You lot have forgotten Minter’s awesome Polybius and I am disappoint

    I mentioned it somewhere in this thread! It’s probably my most played PSVR title - and the only one that didn’t make me feel a bit sick.

  3. I couldn’t handle Resident Evil 7 or - even worse - any sort of driving on the PSVR 1. I just felt really nauseous. 

     

    So maybe I shouldn’t be even considering this new one.
     

    Weirdly, Polybius was absolutely fine. Even more comfortable than Astro Bot where you weren’t moving much at all.

    Can you lay a trap near them, then shoot it with an arrow to damage them? Or Chuck an explosive spear? Sounds like you’ve been unlucky with glitches; I’ve played almost 90 hours and not experienced similar with enemies.

     

    Think I’ve got two main missions to go. There are still bits of the map with fog over them, and so many side jobs and errands, but want to wrap this up and get back to Cyberpunk for the rest of the year.

    I didn’t think of that. I reloaded and luckily it had saved mid-mission. I think I get glitches because I tend to play messily. Rolling everywhere and melee, rather than slowly stealthing it.

    Bit of a departure from the last pic, these are phone shots from the night bus.

    You must have steady hands! Whenever I've tried similar, I've ended up with a wobbly mess. Also, how do you do long exposures on a phone?

    I seem to remember it had awful jumping sections as well? Or insta-death pits?

    I’ve just watched a video. It had pits everywhere that you had to perfectly time jumps other. If you got stuck between a pit and a monster, you could sort of get stun-locked and couldn’t avoid death.

     

    I wanted to like the game - we even played it a lot - but it was just so frustrating! It was one of those games that made you want to smash the joystick up.

    I didn't think it was that bad - just really hard. The controls weren't great either. 


    It was one of those map-type games without a map - you had to learn exactly where to go. I thought the fighting was rubbish because it was mostly a matter of luck. 

     

    I much preferred the first game.

    I also bought this on the c64 - I presume the original box art wasn't used for the budget release as it had caused some minor controversy? 

     

    *Edit* actually looks like this was the full price box art as well but the 'controversial' images were just adverts in magazines?

    I had the big box version on C64. It definitely had Maria Whittaker in a metal bikini on the cover along with Wolf (and a poster of the same).

     

    I bought it on the strength of the reviews though - not based on the box. And it was rubbish - really horrible to play.

    Has anyone who registered yesterday (as opposed to the people who expressed interest months ago) received an invite yet?

    No and I’m not even sure I registered correctly. I haven’t had any confirmation and the page still had a “please sign in” notification at the top even though I’d already done so.

     

    How are people selected anyway? Is it first come, first served?

    I certainly don't agree regarding OLED tech, but I'm starting to think HDR is a minefield of broken-weird looking not corrrectly calibrated nonsense that games actually look better with it turned OFF. 

    My TV only does HDR10+ rather than the proper one. I can’t notice when it’s on or off except when it’s not working properly and everything looks grey. 
     

    My iPhone does weird stuff with HDR photos and videos that looks rubbish and fake. 
     

    Is HDR the new 3DTV nonsense?

    I actually de-hacked my Megadrive Mini at the weekend and restored to factory settings, getting rid of dozens of roms I never played. Curated playlists is where it's at.

    I’d like to do this also but can’t remember how to do it. I think it’s Project Lunar I have on there. Is there a guide somewhere?
