  1. Sea of Thieves - Get Yer Booty!

    Had a lovely time playing solo today, just cruising around doing quests and bumping into other pirates. Managed to sink a galleon with a well placed gunpowder barrel, though subsequently lost my own ship to the crew! Can’t say how long it will keep my attention for, but for now I’m really enjoying it.

    True enough, I didn't mean to imply the projects were comparable, just that the games have launched in a similar state. Both relatively solid, but lacking in the breadth and depth that many seem to have been expecting. MS haven't been particularly good with stuff like this in the past, but with their new focus on getting games onto the system now would be a good time to stick at something.

    No Man's Sky is a good comparison, actually. Hopefully MS see the long term potential and allow SoT to grow in a similar fashion.
  4. Sea of Thieves - Get Yer Booty!

    Good few hours with some mukkers tonight and I am somewhat in love with this game. I think Rare are going to have a hard time selling it to people who prefer singleplayer stuff or just want a lot of content, but for those with a group of people to play with it's a small piece of joy. My advice to those of you struggling with this solo or with randoms is to get in a group with each other and go adventuring. As with the alphas/betas the quests are only there to get you out and about, it's with your buddies on the seas where you'll make your memories. Anyway, a few snapshots:

    Yeah, the sea is surprisingly big, which you'll be thankful for when you've got a galleon or two after you. If players are minding their own business for the most part, it's easy to not run into anybody for a while. Get your spyglass out and get up in the crows nest - especially at night. You can spot a ship a fair way away if they've left their lanterns on!

    Early on I assumed a light scrape on the shallow sea bed would be absolutely fine. It wasn't fine.
  7. Sea of Thieves - Get Yer Booty!

    Not really. Be careful not to run aground or your ship will likely sink in your absence. Also be on the lookout for other players who might steal it. Otherwise just drop the anchor and disembark. Had a good couple of hours on this today. It feels a fair bit better than the betas (and a lot better than the alphas) and the world has a little more life to it in general. Lots of fish and birds and the likes about, plus the wildlife you can capture. Will be about a fair bit this week as I'm off work, so if you see me online and you're looking for a crew, feel free to shoot me an invite - KiwiCake
  8. Disable 'Featured Content' on your PS4!

    Nintendo have had this option for a while but surely nobody actually uses it? Not sure this is the best lesson Sony could learn from Ninty’s recent resurgence.

    They also found reference to a currently unannounced open beta in the last update datamine.
  10. Shadow of the Colossus Remake (Bluepoint)

    I think one of the things that makes the Colossi sympathetic is that they aren’t the aggressors. They were created for a specific purpose and their attempts at combatting you is more in self defence than anything else. They’ve always been figures of profound sadness to me.

    The games strengths certainly lay in the emergent stuff, be it sailing through a storm or accidentally crashing your ship or running across other players etc. The quests currently implemented serve more as a way of getting you out and about where you’ll have those emergent encounters, as well as a way to find loot to make money (and steal from other players). I’ve been testing the game for a few months now and I feel there’s definite magic in it. I’ve had some duff sessions but also some that would rank amongst my very favourite gaming experiences. I’m definitely on board (weeey) for launch.
  12. Been really enjoying this on the X. Added myself to the spreadsheet so if you see me about feel free to shoot an invite.
  13. Xenoblade Chronicles 2

  14. Assassin's Creed Origins

    There is some present day stuff, but it’s extremely unobtrusive and can almost be ignored entirely. I finished the story last night at around 40 hours, with absolutely loads of stuff undone and whole areas of the map still covered. I really like it, primarily because it does such a great job with the setting. The world feels cohesive and believable, it’s a real joy to explore and experiment with. The mechanics are sometimes lacking, but it’s very much a case of the game being more than the sum of its parts. Also shout out to Senu the eagle for being rad as hell. Best addition to Assassins Creed since boats.
