    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    After a long break and going back in at the weekend I have finally completed world of light. The good ending. Fucking hell. Towards the end it was like a really good support act. Not the main band but great but every time you think they’re done they start playing another fucking song you just wish they’d finish up so you can get on with the main event. Though in this analogy, the main event is my life.

    Half the reason it took me 15 hours.

    ‘Fuck have you been doing?!!! I’d cleared the whole story and picked up every ability and weapon in less than 15.

    Declining Sales. WTF Is Going On?

    Fact: Video game software sales are up year on year. Google chucks up a few different percentages but none of them have a minus before them. Opinion: People are not buying games from publishers who keep letting people down. Opinion: Games like Fortnite tend to attract new gamers who will inevitably become part of the wider picture (purchasing wise), rather than suck people out of the market.

    Declining Sales. WTF Is Going On?

    Maybe someone can correct this but I thought that total sales of video games (all of them) were up. Granted, some tend to take bigger shares but I didn’t think that people were buying less games.

    Rage 2 didn’t sell very well because it wasn’t very good. I don’t think RDR2 had this issue.
  8. The only thing I can think of that you wreck are trees which respawn quite quickly once you leave an area. One of the things I liked in Days Gone was how long people/freakers you killed hang around for. You can go back to an outpost and find a load of corpses there from several (game) days back. RDR2 has decomposing enemies, too. I don’t think it’s a tech limitation that can’t be solved now, more a memory thing. If you assign more memory it’s all possible. The other thing to remember is that this thing might break a game. If everything takes too long to come back together, it can halt progress.
  9. The controls in RDR2 were fine. Some of the button prompts and animations got a little tiring but there was enough heft in the controls to make it feel right. Much prefer that to floaty, turn on a dime, what is inertia controls you get in other action RPG type games. I think it’s weird if you get all this ultra realistic world mixed with very unrealistic movement, like perhaps in the Witcher 3 which appeared to have very little weight to it. Especially the horse riding.
  10. I was thinking that you’d see less immersion breaking stuff like draw in and pop in but then I thought that they’ll just use the extra power to make it more detailed and prettier so you’ll still get it.
  11. I guess people don't know who he is.

    RⒶGE 2 - Explosions by Avalanche Studios

    Just clocked it. It is a game. Competent in many respects (mainly the shooting) lacking in others. I picked up plenty of extra weapons and skills but it seems mainly needless - the assault rifle and shotgun will get you through the game. Shout out to the crafting system. To craft a med pack you effectively have to pause and go into the laggy menu to do it. Why is the menu laggy? Moments of pure exhilaration (the shooting again) some comedy (the extra novelty weapons) mixed with a mainly needless open world. No need to worry about the driving combat, the convoys are totally optional. Bland characters, a silly story and no real missions beyond ‘head there, shoot this, grab that’. If people rated games properly, where a 5 demotes an average game (rather than a 7, which is what people seem to go with) this would be a 5. Maybe a 6 if you’re in a good mood.

    Ape Out - Aesthetically goshdarned lovely smash-em-up.

    I haven’t played it in a while but completed it and had no issues.
