  1. I'm two cogs away from unlocking all the bikes so this is excellent timing. Really, properly love this game. The noises!
  2. I'm sure it wasn't the first, but I also loved how your ammo and health were clearly visable without the need for cluttered icons covering the screen.
  3. I'm at the 25-whatever mark in all three and although 64 is still a total masterpiece and Sunshine is a hell of a lot more fun than I remember I'm struggling a bit to enjoy Galaxy. I'm not finding any of the control options particularly suitable and I'm also experiencing some weird gravity/control issues that I don't recall having previously (I'll be pushing the stick in one direction and Mario will get 'caught' and just start running round in an incredibly small tight circle). It looks and sounds utterly amazing and has imagination in spades but something feels a bit off. I guess
  4. My son is going to go absolutely batshit for that. Can't wait to tell him
  5. Cheers both. I think I'll hold out for a little while longer. Got way too much on the go at the moment anyway!
  6. I feel like I can't ignore the word of mouth on this for much longer but I thought Bastion was awful and haven't played anything of theirs since, so that's putting me off a fair old bit. Are there any real simalarities? Supergiant games do have a certain shared visual style I think so I'm finding my issues with their debut a little difficult to shake.
  7. Fuck me; the way the music changes as you come in and out of the water in Jolly Roger Bay. I've always remembered it as being one of mankind's greatest achievements but it's good to check in again and have it confirmed.
  8. I decided to go in quality order rather than chronological (Sunshine ->64->Galaxy and then 3D World when they release it) and I'm glad I did. I'm thoroughly enjoying Sunshine, although I can understand that if you're playing the other two masterpieces alongside it that it might fall short. It's like having eating the cabbage first in your roast dinner. It's well nice, but you know you've got the parsnips and potatoes just waiting.
  9. I am also in on THE PLAN. I'm kinda hoping that by the time I get to the PS5 there will have been a redesign too, but I think that might be a bit ambitious. Getting rather excited! I spent a happy half hour yestersay drawing up a list of the Game Pass stuff I want to play and the bits in my digital 360 library that I'm eager to revisit and are on the backwards compatible list. I can almost see the eyeroll from my wife now as she sees I'm swearing at Geometry Wars again on my fancy new machine
  10. Putting FLUDD in Sunshine is such an obviously Nintendo thing to do that I have to wonder if some of you are actually familiar with their work.
  11. I'm going Sunshine first although I daresay I'll dabble in the others before I finish it. This is largely because I've been humming the Delfino Plaza tune since the collection was announced.
  12. I think I'm pretty much decided on just a Series S with a view to getting a PS5 eventually (I think Deathloop plus Something Else might tip me over). Tetris Effect is one of my best games of the generation so the lure of Connected is strong. Also - weirdly - skipping the entire One generation has done Microsoft a bit of a favour for me. Getting a Series S means Game Pass and all the stuff I've missed. A PS5 means PS+ Collection and all the stuff I've played or couldn't be arsed with first time round.
  13. Second one here is good news for me as I've just clocked that Fuser is out the same week. Looking forward to spending a bunch on money on a new machine and then mostly playing a game on it I could have played on my current gear
  14. I'm enjoying this, but it is rather frustrating that you can't remap the controls as it's stopping me from making the change to manual. I tend to just use one trigger finger on the right hand side so can't change gear and accelerate at the same time. Do developers just plain forget to put this stuff in or is it intentional? It seems bizarre to go to the effort of having a settings and controls section and then not allowing you to change it unless it's a design decision.
  15. Only echoing the general feel of the thread, but good golly that is tempting.
