  1. 30/11 - God of War: Ragnarok Credits have rolled. What a game. Loved the evolution of the Kratos character over the years, from someone I grew to absolutely detest in God of War 3 to what he is in Ragnarok. The only blemish on this otherwise fine game would be a rather lengthy, talky bit with Atreus midway through. That's all I'll say, but if you've played the game then you'll know what I'm talking about. Now to mop up some trophies.... 9/10
  2. Loving the combat in this. It's nice that it alerts you about attacks coming from off screen, which is the complete opposite of the frustration I found with Bayonetta 3.
  3. 12/11 - Megaman: Maverick Hunter X (PSP) Mega Man X is one of those games I try to get a playthrough done once a year because I love it so. Decided to mix things up this time though by digging out my old PSP and grabbing a copy of the X remake. I've played it before many years ago and find it to be a worthy remake, with some nice new additions and some unfortunate technical limitations. Unfortunately by making it look so pretty and filling the screen with enemies, it means the framerate grinds to a halt during some hectic sections. I do however like the remixed level designs and additions to the story, including a short anime prequel movie that I believe is also included in the X Collection on consoles. Shame that this has been one of those games that has never been set free from the PSP/Vita. 8/10
  4. Well I'm pretty sure Giantbomb doesn't review the boner pills so that's not an issue. She really is so fucking dense.
  5. An amazing 14 comments on the GB site for that podcast. If those numbers and views are anything to go by then I'm saying GB is dead within 12 months.
  6. And in further "downfall of Giantbomb news". Check out the first comment on the Sonic Frontiers quick look. https://www.giantbomb.com/shows/sonic-frontiers/2970-21970 An affiliate link for money off the game in question. So more uses of the code means more money for GB/fandom. Which then makes you wonder if they're being truthful or saying more positive things in order to get more money in. This is the exactly opposite of what Gerstmann envisioned when starting Giantbomb.
  7. Yeah. Technically great. Painfully annoying and unfunny. So will fit right in at new Giantbomb.
  8. Add me to the list of PGR2 people. My first ever online experience with folks from this place. I miss those times. Nowadays I don't have time to plan stuff and when playing with randoms I just mute all voice comms.
  9. 06/11 - Bayonetta 3 I have more thoughts in the dedicated thread, but in short. One of the most disappointing games in recent years. Maybe since the Halo 2 campaign? It's certainly a massive step down from Bayo 1 and 2. Awful plot, the new mechanics are bad, and it just felt messy. When you're left to just play as Bayonetta and do cool stuff it's okay, but those moments are few and far between. A generous 5/10.
  10. It is finished. Wow that was a slog. Nonsensical plot, terrible new characters and mechanics. And the cut scenes are just messy. It's probably not a good idea to have excessive particle effects on screen, coupled that with shaky cam and constant cuts like it's a Michael Bay film, results in some headache inducing nonsense. And I loved Bayonetta 1 and 2. Some spoilers regarding gameplay mechanics that come later in the game: Regarding the story and ending:
  11. Yeah. Not exactly Knives Out but an enjoyable enough time.
  12. Okay. It's come to the point where I'm just mainlining this and not doing much exploring because fuck it. It's unbelievably frustrating. Maybe I'm misremembering but I felt like the first two games were better at signposting when an enemy is about to attack, and didn't have as many enemy's just battering you from off screen. A lot of the fights I'm squinting at the screen as I use my summon to batter something in the distance. If this is the thing they took from Scalebound then thank fuck that game was cancelled. Maybe I'll play Astral Chain. That's supposed to be top tier Platinum right?
