  1. I see this is on Gamepass now which is great news as I was VERY close to buying it from the store for full price recently I'm surprised this thread is so quiet as I thought this would be quite popular around these parts. I'm aware it's from the makers of Tales of Vesperia (which I'm currently plodding through when I can be bothered) but it looks more akin to Code Vein (which I really enjoyed) so I'll be curious to see how I get on with it when I get stuck in soon, just wrapping up the collectibles in Psychonauts 2 for the final few achievements first (great game by the way) Sorry about using so many brackets!
  2. tDR meaning the Designers' Republic? I've never played a proper flight simulator but loved things like Pilotwings and Crimson Skies. I'll give this a go because its on gamepass but will probably get bored pretty quickly.
  3. I'm normally an Xbox man but a friend has just loaned me his PS4 for an indefinite period, Woohoo! I had a fat PS3 back in the day, before it's fans clogged and it died of heat exhaustion, and made a point of playing through as many PS exclusives as I could. Standouts for me were Ico and Shadow of the Colossus so I've just ordered The Last Guardian for £11 so pretty psyched about that I've also nabbed Spiderman for £8 as, even though they can be VERY repetitive, I've played ALL the games released since wayback and feel like I've missed out this generation... I'm thinking of God of War and Uncharted 3 next as I've played all previous installments over PS2 & 3 and they feel like unfinished business. So, any other exclusives folks would recommend if youse aren't bored being asked that question? ps. I was quite chuffed to see PSN remembered my old ID, after a password change, so it really feels like I'm picking up a few loose threads from ages ago to see if I can get them tied up! Anyone can add me if they like PSN ID: dungavin I can't believe I forgot about Bloodborne (huge SOULS fan) *drops everything and sprints to the nearest online shop in a panic*
  4. A HAT IN TIME - I picked this up for £12 (50% off in Xbox store) as I'd read good reviews of it and I enjoy 3D platformers. So far it's got some charming characters and enemies while the gameplay is quite varied and unpredictable. Looking forward to getting back at it as it makes for a nice contrast to my other current games...
  5. DOOM (2016) - good craic with satisfying combat. ASSASSIN'S CREED: ODYSSEY - enjoying it but I have to play in short bursts or I find the gameplay loop a bit tiresome. Looks real nice on One X 4K too. PREY - Loving this when I'm in the zone. DARK SOULS II: SOTFS - This is my go to online game I usually only play when I'm having a few beers, currently having trouble with the Fume Knight but I'll beat him eventually. I'm also trying to max out all achievements like I did with the vanilla version so I'll be playing this for sometime.

    Oculus Quest

    Forgive me if I'm being naive but, considering Oculus has some connections with Microsoft (bundled early versions with an xbox controller), why the hell is this not fully integrated into the xbox infrastructure (gamepass, friends list, achievements etc.) and sold as the equivalent of PSVR? I'd buy it tomorrow if that was the case...
  7. Assassin's Creed Odyssey IS LIKE a nice colourful comic or graphic novel (or actual novel) I can drop into and out of at my leisure, and feel good about... Dark Souls II Scholar of the First Sin IS LIKE putting my hand back into a lit fire, but there's no pain because I can help others and vice versa... I'm currently drunk but I will enjoy any feedback if any ok? Love you rllmuk I might even start giving you money
  8. This thread will disappear into the archives no doubt, probably been done a few times before as well, but, complete the half sentence in the title...
  9. This is currently 50% off on the xbox store. Just picked it up for £12.50 and the positive comments in this thread have been quite encouraging so I'm looking forward to getting stuck in...

    Narita Boy

    I finished this the other day and thought it was pretty great. I even managed to get all the achievements after using a spoiler free guide to pinpoint the 3 or so hidden rooms with floppy disk fragments. Some proper hardcore bosses in there too that required a lot of skill. Recommended for sure
  11. Where should I be looking for my free gift? Will they just send an email or what?
  12. Code Vein is a surprisingly decent Dark Souls kind of game with an anime skin and a very easy to use summoning system right from the start. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_Vein
  13. Mmmm depends what type of games you like, but, recently I've been enjoying the DARK SOULS Trilogy, Code Vein, Unravel 2,A Way Out, Splinter Cell Blacklist and Kane & Lynch 2 but I'd give anything a try to be honest.
  14. Add me if you like? I don't do much competitive gaming these days but would be on for any type of co-op. Gsmertag: dungavin
  15. It's available on consoles and I'm going to pick up a disc copy in the new year. I don't mind that it's copying Zelda a bit as it's probably my favourite type of gameplay.
  16. This request was actually on my brother's behalf and, it turns out, he managed to get more flowers by helping other passengers to 'move on'. I've no idea what he spent it on. Looking forward to playing this myself now, once I finish up a few things in The Touryst...
  17. Hello folks, I appear to be stuck/glitched. I used spirit flower BEFORE getting ICEBREAKER, can I get another or is this a glitch? I've tried searching Google but to no avail, any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
  18. This is free on gamepass now and it's pretty great. Also damn funny, especially the codex/kindex description of all the stuff you scan. I'm not far from the end now but would happily play through again with a co-op buddy although, I'd feel as if I'm detracting from their sense of discovery and overall experience somewhat...
  19. Finished this the other day, really enjoyed myself and would definitely recommend it. I agree with most of the previous compliments and criticisms but the loot box thing didn't affect me at all, maybe because of a previous patch? They haven't patched out the loot boxes completely but they certainly don't force them on you. They must've heavily edited the epilogue called Shadow Wars, it's now basically 4 rounds of defend your base instead of 10 as far as I can gather so it's easily possible. I got the true ending and still had about 40,000 Mirian left. I was about level 50 and had completed every other available activity, all of which I thoroughly enjoyed. In short, if you enjoyed the first one or are a fan of any of the Creed or Batman games definitely give this a try and ignore any of the warnings about loot boxes or a secret ending hidden behind a grind as they're just not true
  20. Glad you're enjoying it davejm and I wholly agree about the immersion levels being high As Rubber Johnny says its a good idea to do all the weapons training at Rattay, that clinch perk you mentioned is really useful and you can spam win a lot of 1v1 fights with it, just rush them to initiate a clinch, spam the button then, when they're stunned, get in a few free stabs/bashes or a combo. I'd also recommend doing the little archery contest there under an archway every now and again as it will slowly raise your archery skill even if you lose, which will help in hunting quests and camp raids later on. As for getting decent weapons, shields and armour you could always go exploring woods at night (especially near the little billows of smoke on the map) and try stealth attacking bandit camps to get all their gear, or, steal from Rattay barracks when everyone is sleeping I'm glad to see it getting a bit of appreciation and keep us updated on your adventures sure, good luck out there
  21. Just finished this, via gamepass, on Apocalyptic difficulty and generally agree with issues raised by HarryBizzle and others. It's way better than some of the reviews made out and if you enjoy God of War/Dark Souls/Zelda type of games you really shouldn't let this pass you by Didn't think I'd bother with NG+ but, after lowering the difficulty to easy, I actually think I'll rip through it again not least to nail a few accumulative achievements I'm SO close to getting. I'll definitely play a part 4 if they make it so will keep an eye on that and I'm gonna Google genesis now... Anyway, I'd say it's a solid 8/10 from me, bit of a hidden gem
  22. Dude, deffo play for more than a few hours before sacking this one! I'm about 50 hours in, getting lost loads but always making little chinks of progress here or there (literally!) I've a few AAA games ready to start/continue but this keeps drawing me back, kinda like when first EVER playing Super Metroid or when first discovered/understood Dark Souls. Sorry fer txt speak but using Xbox interface n also bit drunk... Just learned/remembered dreamnail refills soul without killing which is helpin me progress a good bit i think... Total risk vs. reward type stuff, but yer always kinda rewarded, beautiful game design all round n the music is class
  23. Yea everyone sucks at sword fighting in the early game mainly because (like Oblivion) you have to use/practise abilities to get better at them. There are blocks, parries & ripostes and various combos for all weapons tucked away in there but you have to play as far as Rattay town/Castle where you can train with captain Bernard in all weapon types unlocking all of the above with no danger of dying or wasting hours of gameplay time. Give it another shot to see what I mean...
  24. I see this is on games with gold if anyone is interested... I adored the first two games but, according to the comments above, this is quite a departure for the franchise. Sort of sounds like they've gone a bit into Ninja Blade territory, what with all the QTEs and cerraazy bombastic action sequences, which I wouldn't really mind at all (Sekiro has absolutely sated my desire for any and all 'authentic' oriental sword based action) Has anyone any fond memories of this then? At all?
  25. I just finished the whole Monastery series of quests as part of the main storyline and wow, that has got to be one of the biggest game design missteps I've ever experienced. I managed to complete all the side quests but only after a few reloads and what seemed like hours of watching loading screens for either sleeping or waiting. This totally killed the momentum of the story and I wouldn't be surprised if many players gave up at this point. Anyway, onwards to what appears to be the final quest, carrying the hope that it ends on a high after that whole debacle
