  1. The irony is that he was the director on an excellent game. Day's Gone is great, but by opening his mouth he shows that he probably contributed nothing positive to the project and the reason the game is so good is the dev team actively didn't listen to him.
  2. Do you then run that on a softmodded Wii? That's basically what I'm getting set up atm.
  3. Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
  4. The original GOW games are obviously massively influenced by the side-scrollers of the NES-era. Yes, GOW doesn't literally side-scroll. But it's basically that kinda game - Castlevania, Ninja Gaiden, Rygar - but reinterpreted into a 3D action game. It's also absolutely influenced by similar 3D brawlers such as Devil May Cry and Ninja Gaiden on the Xbox. It has nothing similar to Tomb Raider besides moving within a 3D environment and a touch of mythology in it's story tell. GOW 2018 was "modernised" in line with the other PlayStation studio games such as Uncharted, and GOD:R is literally just a bumper version of the 2018 game.
  5. I think it has a strong full screen motion blur, which will appear way stronger with a lower frame-rate. You could try turning that off? I also find 30 fps a bit harder to deal with on an OLED with it's super quick pixel response. It makes it look a lot more choppy than a normal LED tv.
  6. Yes, absolutely! No, not at all!
  7. As an avid retro-gamer, I love me a bit of classic Tomb Raider and I love all those unique things it brings to the table… but comparing it to this is another massive apples and oranges scenario! It’s like saying OOT is crapper that TR2, because OOT has an auto-jump. They’re two different games trying to do two different things!
  8. I’m sure to expect some well balanced views and opinions on this matter… …also, how long till the inevitable Gamepass price hike/workaround removal?
  9. Yes, yes, yes! Absolutely this! Well observed! The ubi-bloat that people immediately fall back on as a criticism I don't think is nearly as bad as it actually is in most games, but FH5 is -by far - the worst offender of any game I have ever played. It actively feels likely it's working against the player to the point that just selecting a race, or trying to find one that looks interest is a complete an utterly confusing nightmare. I eventually uninstalled the game, as I came back to it after a short few weeks and I had no idea what was going on. If some races were part of the game, or user created, or where I was in the campaign or anything like that. The racing handling-model is wonderful, the world is beautiful but it's just such a confusing mess of a game.
  10. See, this is what is great about this forum. For me it's absolutely not the nitpicking about the games with big exposure that I already know if I'm going to buy and will therefore make up my own mind if they're good, bad or in-between. It's knowing that there's a positive vibe around games that I'd otherwise of had no idea about. Even with it coming to gamepass and being developed by obsidian, I wasn't that fussed about the look of Pentiment... but seeing that at least some people where singing it's praises draws my attention to it.
  11. If you think so, then maybe you should go play some more games! I also personnally liiiiiiiterally don't care. A prior point made but I'm not looking for something wild and exotically experiemental and new. I want "greatness" which is exactly what that game is to me, and in the context of that game and it's predecessor, it's doing plenty new in the new game that wasn't there in the first. It's an all out improvement. To me, therefore it's a 9, or 5 fucking gold stars or 3 bags of popcorn and 6 sodas or whatever you want to call it. What it's not - to me - is average or above average. Immortailty, is above average for me. Because despite it doing some interesting things - sometimes a bit emperor's new clothes - it's quite a fucking boring videogame, but it's interesting watching it unfold. Also as "cinema" not even close to the various Lynch films it inspires to be.
  12. Wtf, it takes literally nothing from Souls combat apart from the fact you hit things and Attack & Block are mapped to R1 & R2 respectively. It reminds me more of Godhand with its over the shoulder camera and radar system (instead of a map its indicators around the player character).
  13. To me that seems totally like being "disappointed" in something for being something that it's absolutely not even trying to be. It's a narrative driven adventure game with - as Tim Rodgers would say - a focus on providing the player with various "game flavours" that it keeps on switching up between. Narration, Vistas, trinket scrounging, combat arenas...etc. It's got more in common with The Last of US, Uncharted and Final Fantasy VII Remake than any Souls game. Your critisising it for not taking lessons from a game it's not even trying to take lessons from.
  14. Yes! Amazing! As some one who simultaneously owned a consumer Toshiba 20" CRT and a 20" PVM L4, as amazing as PVM's are, you do not need them! There's loads of amazing consumer CRT's and it's actually a more true to the time look for the games you'll play on it.
