  1. Traversal and combat are nice but there's nowhere near enough content at the moment and it feels like an early access title through and through. Placing two whacking great progression gates that require a massive grind within the first ten hours of the game tells you all you need to know. I did quite enjoy my brief time with it but the core loop to break through those aforementioned gates was already getting pretty stale and I didn't see it holding my interest for much longer, so I deleted it and will maybe check it out again in a year or so when there's hopefully more to do. I don
  2. He's just responsible for the background lore and some world-building aspects. I don't think he's written any dialogue or cutscenes for it.
  3. Yeah it's great fun and there's a good amount of variety to it as well. One I dip in and out of periodically and am always guaranteed a good time. It's one of those games that kind of flies under the radar but seems to have carved out a nice little niche for itself, has sold a few million copies and gets regular updates from the devs as a result. Well worth checking out. "Rock and stone!"
  4. Fuck me, Observation was a head trip and a half. Did it in one 5 hour session and am glad I ticked it off my (ever-growing) 'Play Later' list before it leaves in a week or so. The sound design was phenomenal and I enjoyed the puzzles and interface design too. A great idea (an interactive 2001 meets Event Horizon, essentially) that was well executed. It probably wears its cinematic influences a little too heavy on its sleeve and it's not for everyone for sure, but I think they pulled off what they were going for very well. Night Call's leaving soon too and that's anothe
  5. The campaign is very mediocre and I’m as forgiving as they come. Like all DICE games it’s 100% about the multiplayer or the very fun co-op mode if you just want to slice up Stormtroopers with a lightsaber. Both modes are excellent now after a good few years of updates and patches and there’s a monstrous amount of content and characters from all three trilogies.
  6. Yeah it looks fantastic now on Series X. The next-gen update a few months ago had it running at 60fps but all the latest graphical bells and whistles that have been added with this latest update have taken it to the next level. Considering a huge part of the appeal is living out those Chris Foss-inspired 70s sci-fi novel covers in real-time it accentuates the splendour of what was always a very distinctive and at times breathtaking visual style. There’s a few minor hitches now and again but it's a clear and significant step up from the last gen versions. I’d still say that
  7. Indeed it is, thank you for correcting me. My error shall stand as a lesson to others.
  8. Lol. Dude, LoU Part II is the single most harrowing, tense, brutal and emotionally exhausting experience in gaming history. It'll put you through the ringer and then some. It's the best game I've ever played but I genuinely think it scarred me for life. That shouldn't put you off at all though and if you liked the first game then you absolutely must play the second. It's a masterpiece and in its chosen genre is streets ahead of anything else out there in so many ways.
  9. Oh I was referring to step 1, sorry. Wouldn't be a Destiny quest without some absurd grind somewhere now, would it.
  10. You don’t have to get PvP kills with Cryosthesia for its catalyst. Any Crucible or Gambit Guardian kills will do. I finished it off in Team Scorched last week.
  11. SnowRunner tip that’ll make your first few hours a hundred times easier and more enjoyable: once you have access to the garage and have penetrated the weird UI you should have two additional trucks in there available to you. Sell the expensive one and then buy the first available off-road truck (think it’s about $80k). Stick some wheels on it that have a ‘good’ off-road rating and you’ll have a vehicle that can navigate the first areas in Michigan with relative ease and won’t get stuck in every little ditch and patch of mud you come across. It has All-Wheel-Drive and a differential
  12. Seems my instincts were right in thinking that Kingdom Hearts would be leaving before long. Glad I just finished my entire series playthrough last week as a result. The first game’s virtually unplayable these days but KH2 is still pretty good and clocks in at about 30 hours if you concentrate on the main story. The rest can be caught up with via the many YouTube recaps that are out there.
  13. Sea of Solitude isn’t a bad one. Finished it last night, it took 3 hours to complete and ended up with 570 GS. I too rinsed all the easy ones last time they did this, which was fine but I’m not gonna bother too much this time round. Life’s too short to be mindlessly grinding out achievements for the sake of £9.... or so I’m going to keep telling myself.
  14. The way he pulls Masvidal’s right hand out of the way and then sends a missile of a right of his own down the pipe is just *chef’s kiss*
