  1. Looks like they were revised yeah (again from Hit Points, apologies I don’t have the primary source): But yeah he also points out the lack of 1st party not helping. I imagine they‘ll have a strong Christmas with Forza and Halo, like a proper traditional console bundle in terms of the marketing, which is perhaps much easier to understand for the general public than upscaling-back-compatible-frame-rate boost etc etc. “Buy this console/service to play these shiny new games” fits on the side of a bus much easier.
  2. Although apparently it’s missed it’s targets and is underperforming? Quite surprised to read about it in today’s Hit Points: https://hitpoints.substack.com/p/64-like-and-subscribe?r=9z8zd&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web&utm_source= (no offence putting it in this thread @Nate Dogg III, I just don’t want to ruin the cosy bookclub vibes of the gamepass thread)
  3. Fiver on PSN right now for anyone wanting in on the next gen upgrade (will be free apparently).
  4. Yeah agreed. It’s nice when video games use the superior Alien film as inspiration.
  5. I was shit for ages, honestly didn’t think I would see the last boss. But it gets easier as yes, your guns hit harder over time and you unlock pickups that really help, but mainly you start to learn enemy behaviour and resource management and that’s when the breakthrough came for me, rather than feeling like my actual reactions were getting better. Stick with it. Headphones on. Sack off everything else for a bit.
  6. JSRF would be such low hanging fruit in terms of internet hype/goodwill and it still looks banging enough to use in publicity, social media etc.
  7. It has to be more BC games if they’re doing an event but not announcing anything new? Has that last bit been confirmed?
  8. God yeah the atmosphere and aesthetic is just *chefs kiss*.
  9. https://www.slashfilm.com/636812/succession-season-3-just-gave-hbo-max-its-biggest-premiere-yet/
  10. Third person but yeah not far off. It can get a bit bullet hell-ey but it’s more like Enter the Gungeon or Binding of Isaac than Ikaruga or one of the old coin ops.
  11. Yeah you’re probably right. I’m not sure the arguments quite coalesced convincingly between emulating old and new games though, especially if you swapped out Metroid for say, Sable or Silksong. Also pointing to Spotify as a good example of anything other than screwing over the people that made the content is shakey ground too.
  12. I broadly agree with the Sterling video when it comes to retro games, but not sure her argument works for more recent releases (Literally one of the arguments was that the devs got paid for their work back in the 90s). Also I’ll probably need a bit more convincing that one of the biggest videogame websites announcing you can emulate a game won’t affect sales than because it just won’t.
  13. Aaaand done. What a brilliant game. This or Metroid GOTY for me.
  14. She’s still heading to Kendall I think. Can’t remember now, but does she know about his road…accident?
  15. If it’s a framerate boost then fine, but anything more I’d rather they spent the resource elsewhere. It’s not like Demon’s Souls that was trapped on the PS3 and hardly anyone played it. This was the first proper game worth getting on the PS4, so as well as selling quite well, people have rinsed it over the years. Not to mention you can play it right now on PS5 and aside from the framerate, it still looks stunning.
  16. Brilliant first ep. So dense, not a second of the run time is wasted. FULL. FUCKING. BEAST
  17. Hmm. You and @MattyP have put me right off now as yeah, I hate choice paralysis, one of my favourite feelings is cancelling a streaming service. Maybe I’ll wait for reviews of Forza and Halo at least.
  18. Finally got to the last boss in this (I took a break to play Metroid) Oh my gosh. I think I might have spotted maybe 2 pixels of space on the screen that didn’t have some kind of enemy fire in it?
  19. Fuck going to see this film then if that’s the level of effort they’re putting in.
  20. More fuckin rllmuk approved moan-o-posting. Trailer looks great. Really looking forward to this.
  21. Wait what? It must be a flashback or something how the hell do they justify that?
  22. Just confirming what everyone already knows but the TAS one is obviously the best.
  23. Yeah it’s not a Metroidvania even though it’s invokes Prime quite a bit you’re right. It’s not for everyone @Stanley as it’s pretty tough, but it’s dripping with atmosphere and once it gets it’s hooks in it‘s hard to think about anything else.
  24. That’s me done. I won’t 100% it as I never do, but it’s between this and Returnal for GOTY for me.
  25. What’s everyone’s thoughts on having all the consoles under the telly at our age then? I’m intending to pick up a Series S for Forza and Halo this winter, thus completing the trifecta. But part of me does think it’s a bit excessive for someone expecting their second child.
