    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    I found the boar a real test on hard at like the recommended level for the quest- you have to use all the tools available to you to do it, all the skills etc. I’d definitely recommend the healing skill so you can recharge your health in between rounds of him summoning the other boars. There is one major difference playing on easy (and normal)- you don’t get as much exp from the game. This is probably why some people complain about having to grind for ages before they can tackle the story quests, and others don’t understand the complaint.

    Starlink: Battle for Atlas (No Man’s Starfox)

    Whoever designed the toys and bits for this is an idiot- surely the plastic part which goes over the controller should free stand as a way of displaying/storing the model you’re using? And the Nadir (Shaid’s ship) doesn’t even lie flat with the wings on, instead it rests at an angle on the weakest part, a tiny little flap which bends and looks liable to snap at any moment. Instead you have to turn that wing upside down and it just about lies flat with a weapon on it. Stupid.

    Battlefield V

    Ok, if anyone else is having trouble, just contact EA support- they’ll actually unlock the weapon for you. Stupid that Dice can’t even get something like that working in a game that’s been out for weeks, but at least it means you don’t have to play loads of grand operations hoping you get put on a decent side.

    Battlefield V

    Took me another 3 days of playing to win another grand operation, and again, the game doesn’t track that I have. If you’re going to put weapon unlocks behind such a mechanic, fix your bloody game Dice!!!

    Battlefield V

    I’m on the last stage of tides of war, to win a grand operation- so I launch it from that screen, go all the way through stages 1-3, winning each one, match completes, and....nothing. It doesn’t register it. What the hell is the point launching this mooted tides of war system, which is tied to progression goals, when their game can’t track progression goals???

    Diablo III - Eternal Collection out on Switch

    I don’t know if it’s always been this price, but the switch version is £32 on Amazon.
  7. I don’t understand why there’s so much amazing detail in this game, yet almost two months past release, they still can’t fix the guns disappearing or changing at random times. Did they give that bit to the work experience person or something?

    Mutant: Year Zero - Open World XCOMlike

    This is a bit shonky- I’ve had about 6 crashes back to the console home screen so far in just the first few hours, usually during or just after loading of a new map. Even the very first encounter, when it kicked into turn based, the screen was just black despite being able to move the cursor around. This definitely needed more time before release- I’d definitely be annoyed if I’d have paid for it.

    Starlink: Battle for Atlas (No Man’s Starfox)

    Thanks, that makes sense! Does it make the game a bit boring though if you’re just stuck with one ship and the weapons in the starter pack? I don’t really want to spend any more money on the game, and don’t want any of the extra toys and bits.

    Starlink: Battle for Atlas (No Man’s Starfox)

    If you buy the physical version, can you only get other ships in the game by buying the physical toys?

    The Outer Worlds | Obsidian 2019

    You got your Borderlands in my Fallout.
  12. What the hell is it with this game and updates??? Last few times I’ve played it, there’s been a 10 gig update- today, 22 gig! For a game you just want to have a quick blast on, it really doesn’t help. Don’t remember anything like these kind of frequent, massive patches with previous COD games.
  13. Great, hope this has fixed the gun and the sound bug then!
  14. I was worried this was going to be mired in overarching plot, and it totally was. It lost all the magic of the first for me. The story was needlessly convoluted, and characters change their motivations on a whim. It was also badly edited- there’s a scene where one character just disappears, only to appear at the end with no-one commenting on it. EDIT: Just a couple of other things, on reflection. It totally wastes the Paris setting, with hardly anything memorable- it could have taken place anywhere, instead of giving us what could have been an interesting take on that time period, with added magic. Humour is absent from almost the whole movie, which is a shame since the first had some lovely humourous touches. The whole thing is dark for little reason. There’s also very little action. The movie manages to get bogged down in plot whilst actually achieving very little, and feels like a bridging movie rather than anything of individual merit. Loads of characters are introduced, yet do very little- I’m sure they’ll have a big part to play in the further movies to come, but they do very little in this one, and just take up screen time which could have been given to the characters you actually want to see.
  15. I don’t think it -is- working, that’s the problem. The gun bug is making the game hugely less enjoyable for me- I know I’m about to start a mission, so I make sure I’ve got two guns selected in the two extra slots. The mission starts, and bam, I’ve got the carbine equipped, and one empty slot. What’s the point in unlocking new weapons if the game keeps randomly changing my loadout??
