    Hitman 2 (2018)

    What about 2016 was piecemeal? Every map had crazy variety, I spent longer on Paris alone than I do some full releases. The overarching story of the Hitman games is easily the worst thing about the franchise.

    Football Thread 2018/19

    Yeah, ignoring emotion it's probably the right call. Taking a quick look with a bit of emotion chucked in, I'm gutted it didn't work out for Slav. He gave me one of the best days of my life at Wembley this year, and the club was playing the best football I'd ever seen us play. We were dross under the managers we'd had before, and Slav came in and (ironically) sorted out our defence and turned us into a fantastic attacking club. He'll be a shoe in for the next club that needs a manager in the Championship and (Brentford and QPR aside) I wish him the best of luck wherever he ends up.

    Final Fantasy XV

    I've been spending a lot of my time since release trying to work out what game Red Dead Redemption 2 reminds me of.. and when this thread popped back up I suddenly realised. Don't get me wrong, Red Dead is a lot better than FFXV, but mood/feel wise they're very similar. A lot of people don't get on with certain gameplay features of both titles, but they both have worlds with crazy complex depth/systems that are incredibly fun to live in. They feel like real, lived in worlds, because someone with sadly a lot (increasingly less and less admittedly in the case of Squeenix) of money just left them to cook. It's a shame XV goes to complete shit when the story takes over, but for those 20 odd hours when you're just arsing about going hunting/fishing/cooking with your mates, it's one of my favourite games this gen.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    So this is a weird one. I'm pretty sure in that chat he only mentioned animals for me? I've killed a fair few animals before realising their pelts are shit/I don't actually need them but zero women because I'm not a fucking psychopath. Am I imagining it/did I miss a line or is that quite a clever thing the game's doing?

    Literally the perfect summary for me. I’d give it 2.5 Capwns. Stunning.

    Yep. Game of a generation. Astro Bot’s great but Red Dead full deserves all of the plaudits it’s getting for me.

    Is Read Dead Redemption 2 any good?

    Yeah, mate. It's basically just shiny Pong. Space Invaders with a lick of paint. Pac Man with tits.

    Is Read Dead Redemption 2 any good?

    I think it's absolutely incredible and have played it for almost one full day of the last week despite still being on Chapter 2. Up there with Breath of the Wild for game of the generation if it carries on like this.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I still really like the way it controls. It’s lumbering and cumbersome and that feels right for the character. I dont know.. I get why some people find it frustrating and maybe I’m making excuses because of how much I like the game but for me I really like the chunky feeling to everything. Having to press a few buttons to do something, once it clicks, kinda feels right for the way the game’s been built.

    Rb and A for the fancy brake isn't it? Rb and X for the rear up?

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    So I'm a bit annoyed at this. I made a big effort to ride West and steal a lumber wagon. On the way back I thought I'd hitch my original horse (ThunderChap) up and then ride into Valentine to give the wagon to the family that asked for it. I was loving this, I think the game is fantastic and so far the many systems/controls have synced up to provide what feels like a super realistic cowboy experience. I got into camp and the game told me I couldn't ride the wagon in there. Fine. So I hitch my horse up and then seemed to be unable to get back in the wagon. No matter how many times I pressed Y, the game wouldn't let me do it. I thought I'd rest, given that sometimes it moves things about the camp in a hope that i'd be able to get back onto my wagon, and it's nowhere to be seen. Am I going to have to ride all the way out west again and risk getting caught?

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I'm absolutely loving this. The controls don't feel nearly as bad to me as people are saying in here but then I've never really had an issue with Rockstar games controlling badly. Geralt in The Witcher 3 felt much worse, with his floaty jumps and weird momentum. Arthur feels heavy, weighted, if you're not doing everything at a million miles an hour he controls pretty well. More than anything it reminds me of Shenmue, which I never thought I'd say. The slow paced checking of every nook and cranny, chatting to everyone, a much slower, more considered tone than most of your big triple A titles. There's just so much going on, and the way the game will introduce you to something in the world that in any other open world would have a big MISSION symbol on it is sublime. I love Arthur and the gang dynamic, and I'm a huge fan of spending time with John again. It turns out Rockstar can really tell fun little character stories when they're not trying to be edgy satirists. It feels different, and brilliant. I've been playing it all day and feel like I've done about 2% of everything it has to offer. I can't wait to get back into it and remind everyone who the baddest, coolest cowboy around is...

    The other thing is they're adding seasonal events every week. So I think there's less to do in a "Spend 100 hours on it then drop it" kind of way, but over the course of the next year we're going to get tons of new stuff to do as the game updates.
