    Hitman 2 (2018) - Death by Rake

    Worth noting that today’s patch has introduced a High Framerate option on PS4 Pro. I think it’s just rendering at 1080p rather than 1440p because otherwise it looks pretty much the same as it did before but it’s a lot smoother. As an added bonus it’s significantly reduced the jet engine noise the game sometimes causes on my Pro! So I’m happy on both counts.

    I think the script is essentially identical whoever you play, but the delivery (both vocally and in terms of motion capture) is significantly different. Alexios is pretty hammy, Kassandra’s much more nuanced. I think it’s a great performance.

    Female, definitely.

    Does anyone know, if I’ve been playing the prologue/demo and earning trophies, do I just stick the retail disc in to upgrade to the full version? Or should I uninstall the prologue first? I don’t want to lose any progress or end up with two versions installed. (PS4 version)

    I downloaded the demo of this yesterday and lost about three hours to it. Not even the main training mission, just the wooden boat that acts as the controls tutorial. Absolutely superb stuff. My copy has been ordered.

    I played a little of the first game and thought it was excellent, I was planning on picking it up at some point. Is it still worth doing that or do you get the full experience by buying the second one with the Legacy Pack?

    Doctor Who

    So far this season the Doctor has been complicit in an act of racism, cruelly suffocated a load of spiders to death, done nothing to prevent an awful massacre and strongly supported an exploitative mega-corporation. I'd like to think this is all going to come together in the series finale and we're going to find out why this incarnation of the Doctor has such screwed-up morals, but I think sadly it's probably just shit writing.

    The Blind King was given away as a pre-order bonus, I definitely got it with mine. It's pretty slight.

    Agree totally on the stool thing, especially if you can get a spinny one. It makes the world of difference.

    PlayStation VR

    It's heavily game-dependent in my experience. The motion sickness is caused by a disconnect between what you're seeing on screen and what your body is telling you is going on. So stuff where you're fairly static, or feel like you're sitting down, tends to be fine. Games where you're being whisked around or your viewpoint is changing rapidly can trigger motion sickness in some players. I have no problems whatsoever with Astro-Bot, where your actual player movement is pretty limited and you float forwards slowly and intermittently - most of the actual "motion" is just you sitting in one spot and looking around, and that's fine. I think it's been very cleverly designed to minimise sickness (and you can see the ways in which they've improved it since the VR Worlds demo that inspired it). Likewise games like Statik, where you're in a single location and don't move around at all. Driving games tend to be OK if they have sensible comfort settings. Even Rush of Blood, which is pretty frantic, is just a roller-coaster simulator basically, your actual "character" is sitting in one place and being wheeled around and there's no huge disconnect between that and the feeling you have of sitting on your sofa. It's stuff like Skyrim and RE7 that a lot of people find difficult - that feeling where you push the right stick and your whole viewpoint lurches to the left or right even though your body knows it hasn't moved, or where you dash forwards, stop, dash forwards again...
  11. The ball is a shit controller but it's hilarious taking it for a walk and having it make little Pokemon noises as you trundle around with it, depending on what Pokemon you've got inside it. My other half turned up for a Pogo raid with it earlier and got the piss ripped out of her, but you could tell they were all jealous really.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    It definitely does, especially if you're daft enough, like me, to chase the trophies. They've just added not only a bunch more Lost Stories of Greece trophies but also what looks like the set for the first major piece of DLC. Most of these are unobtainable at the moment but you can get the first three Lost Stories - two of them are side quests and one of them is a boss battle. It feels like every time I log in there's even more stuff to do (which I'm not complaining about).

    It hasn’t downgraded you, it’s added some additional tiers, so you’re no longer top tier (gold).
  14. My wife's been playing this and she's basically finding herself forced to play it in handheld mode as the ball is a terrible controller and the joycon throwing motion is too imprecise. Handheld gives you a good combination of motion controls for precise aiming and actual button controls for throwing. It's bizarre that you can't play the game docked using the Pro Controller to replicate that control system.

    The new patch added several tiers of upgrades to the ship. I was soooo close to the Platinum and now I need about 10,000 extra wood to get the “fully upgrade the ship” trophy. Really frustrating.
