  1. I’ve been playing this instead of going back to GOW ragnarok - the combat is so much fun and properly challenging without being unfair. It constantly throws new powers that let you rip through enemies that previously caused you issues and feels satisfyingly meaty when you hit stuff.
  2. So I put a few hours into this last night. I’m still not sold - the handling is improved by turning traction control on and upgrading parts to let you adjust the grip <-> drift slider to better take corners without having the feeling you’ve hit a patch of ice. That gives the cars a bit more weight when driving but it still feels off. The constant calls from your companions are cringeworthy - now maybe as a near 50 yr old man I’m just not the demographic but it all sounds like old people writing how they think young people speak. I just don’t feel drawn to advance the “story” and the racing isn’t interesting enough to keep me coming back.
  3. Well you can adjust a slider between grip and drift but it doesn’t appear to be unlocked from the start so you have to use default NFS car on ice cornering for a fair bit. Disappointed if I’m honest as I really wanted a decent criterion arcade racer but the constant chatter and handling are putting me off.
  4. Yeah not sure about this so far - the world seems quite bland and no one shuts up - I mean constant commenting from the player and NPC in the car. The fancy effects also mean you really are encouraged to play from outside of the car which is my least favourite driving view. milk play the 10 hour trial and see if it grows on me but it looks like a “wait for gamepass” for me.
  5. Here’s hoping the hints of a remaster of the LoK series come to fruition. Soul reaver is such a great game but feels properly clunky by modern standards.
  6. Well that was just a superb series from start to finish. The only negative is that I’ll have to wait for ages to finish the story.
  7. I'd always suggest It takes Two but it is a 3rd person game and may not be suitable. It is however the best couch co-op game there is.
  8. Played about an hour of Pentiment and I'm enjoying it so far. If you don't like lots of reading in a game though steer clear as so far it's been charming conversations and some character building choices.
  9. That sounds much like me at 9:30pm last night - started playing then looked at the clock and it was 1:30 am.
  10. Well this has managed to fill my last 2 days and I’ve not even considered booting GOW. I’ve unlocked all the areas and it’s opened a ton of other stuff that as ever is barely explained but I’ll just keep playing till it does something garlic, bible and pentagram powered to the max and any of knives,whip or boomerang is so satisfying - especially when the screen is full to the brim with enemies who can’t get close to you and the screen is just going nuts. Most fun I’ve had in a single game in ages.
  11. Whereas I’d say requiem was better in all ways than the mostly excellent original.
  12. Unfortunately the same criticism that you can level against mice and mystics as well.
  13. A quality couple of weeks there with RtMI, pentiment, vampire survivors and Somerville
  14. If my weapon breaks every 5 minutes then I'm out already.
  15. Tried and didn't get on with them - my gaming tastes have changed from horror games. I'm not stopping you or anyone else being excited by it but you asked how anyone could look at the list and say - nowt for me.
  16. As I said - because I’ve already played it - a couple of times. I’ve no interest in the RE series as a whole - 4 was the last one I bothered finishing.
  17. I never clicked with BOTW so the sequel isn’t really exciting me. I’ve played RE4 - why would I bother about a remake of a game that looks to be a shiny version of the original?
  18. God of war is the only big release I’m picking up at the moment. I’ll probably trade in some MS points for the final Dark Pictures game but everything else is smaller gamepass stuff. Pentiment as it’s obsidian and they always make interesting stuff and high on life for a laugh.
  19. To be fair the main actress speaking English is actually french so the accent is accurate.
  20. Midnight release in each territory on console so NZ had it at lunchtime here.
  21. I forgot how gruesome the first game was - this also doesn’t shy from some pretty horrific scenes. Oh and rats - lots and lots of rats!!!!
  22. Have to say it felt pretty smooth in motion for me and I’ve got quite sensitive to 30fps games this gen.
  23. If anyone wants to play Plague Tale Requiem then move to New Zealand as it’s unlocked
  24. For those of us with gamepass it’s worth moving to New Zealand for the day.
  25. If you haven’t played Beacon Pines the punchcard is the perfect opportunity- it’s a charming little visual novel with superb narration and characters.
