  1. God of War (2018) - Magni-ficent!

    I stuck with the third difficulty (despite it being really frustrating early on) and I'm really glad I did - as I suspected may be the case (as it often is with video games), once you've unlocked more abilities and increased your maximum health things become a lot more manageable. There's a ton more depth now than when I started, with multiple combos and attacks with different timings, all of which have value against the variety of enemies you'll encounter. The enemies don't feel anywhere near as tanky now (partly because I've specced for high damage I imagine) and I can wipe out a group of five or six enemies in seconds. It just feels so fucking good. A few random thoughts: XP gain starts off really slowly but once the game opens out properly you get a fuck ton of it. I earned maybe 1k in the first few hours and over 10k in the subsequent few hours, which allows you to unlock loads of abilities and makes the combat a lot better. I've seen numerous people talking about parrying/riposte, so just to reiterate it: there are two different skills you can unlock, both available after a perfectly timed parry: R1 does a quick attack with a huge knockback, R2 does (I think) a slower, heavier hitting attack that appears to have AOE. There's also a skill that allows Atrius to take advantage of prone/crowd controlled enemies. Also, the Vitality stat appears to be similar to Poise from Dark Souls: in addition to reducing the damage you take it also reduces the chance of heavier enemy attacks staggering you. I got all my jobs done early so I could play this basically all day and it just gets better and better. I wasn't entirely convinced by the combat initially (as can be seen in my post yesterday) but it's really good now.
  2. Ash vs Evil Dead - Season 3 Feb 25th

    Not only that but it still never actually came to any streaming service in the UK. I've been waiting to watch it legitimately for years but it just never happened - and now it never will. They shouldn't be surprised that nobody was watching it.

    Why do you think it's terrible?

    I haven't changed any of them myself but in the Options menu (under Gameplay I think) there are various tweaks that might help with that. I think I saw something about "strafe assist", which if disabled might make it feel more fluid. I'm not really sure what you mean by QTE movement I think you have missed a few of those mechanics. Again, no story spoilers just light mechanics: The biggest difference between this and Souls for me is how tanky all the enemies are in God of War. I'm playing on the third (out of four) difficulties and it definitely increases the amount of damage you take, but I'm also fairly sure it increases the amount of health the enemies have. They have a ton of health and will kill you incredibly quickly. One enemy would literally kill me in one attack (from full health) - and that wasn't even a boss! The first boss kills you in two hits, has a ton of health and there's only one health pick up in that encounter, so you nearly have to play perfectly a lot of the time. I'd normally like that but the enemies have so much health (and there are frequently so many of them) that most encounters end up becoming quite tedious. This is also in direct contradiction to the cutscenes where Kratos can take an absolute beating without flinching, but in actual gameplay you'll die in one or two hits from the lowliest enemy.

    The post man turned up with my Shopto copy Saved me £53. I finished downloading the 1.1gb patch only for a second patch to start - this time 6.1gb.

    No visit yet from Mr Post Man I think he's slacking off somewhere in the sun. Might have to go digital as well. Would be the first time I've ever gone full-price Digital on a console but I'm pretty hyped to play this.

    Luckily "game of the generation" isn't determined by metacritic scores.

    It was related to what he originally said before people became needlessly pedantic just because NEG Kirby is annoying.

    Does this discussion really need to happen? Yeah, it's not technically legal to rip your music, dvds or play emulated games that you own - but I'd be surprised if anyone here would argue that it's immoral to play an emulated version of a game that you legitimately own. Even if they would, I still don't think it's a particularly interesting discussion to dredge up again.

    It's still £52.99 for the digital deluxe.

    Safe to say Tamoor likes it then

    Guys, if you stop responding to trolls they get bored and wander off to do something else (like play Sonic).

    Your opinion, based on nothing. 60 critic's opinions, based on playing and completing the game. Which has value and which is utterly worthless? Edit: ok, you're calling God of War a walking simulator. You're just trolling them because nobody is legitimately that stupid.

    It's not really sarcasm, he just posts inane bullshit and then starts a thread whining about people negging him.
