  1. Yeah, I agree. As I say, I don't personally care about this game, but it's obvious that Squaresoft advertised one thing then delivered another. Now whether that's because they got the wrong director in, were lazy about reusing game styles, or genuinely thought people would be delighted by the potential provided by a new direction is moot. Whatever the reason for the decision, they read the room wrong. It'll still sell massively, and hit an all new audience to boot, but expect people to get disproportionately salty as it's dropping during lockdown. Countdown tto the first 'please understand' apology, and the first class-action lawsuit to come out of the US
  2. I don't have a horse in this race (not arsed about the style of gameplay in the new game, remake or no, and won't be buying it for that reason alone) but i'm getting irritated by the comparisons with MGS2. MGS2 was a sequel. Kojima was well within his rights to do whatever the frig he wanted with it, and let the market decide its fate. FFVII has remake in the actual title. It was sold on nostalgia value; it has no reason to exist other than this.
  3. Rogue One, Clone Wars, Rebels, Mandolorian again, force yourself through the new trilogy, the holiday special, Caravan of Courage, Droids animated series, then Solo...
  4. There'll be a commonality. What happens is, when loading switches to the dark screen with the grey floor, the image starts to break up. After about 5 seconds, the Steam egg timer appears (very briefly) then the 'loading' map appears. It then takes about 5 seconds to stabilise and stays on that for about 10 seconds until the 'press trigger' prompt appears. I'm guessing people who get 10 second load times are seeing the map plus loading message pretty much instantly?
  5. By the way, I shifted my install to my C drive, which is an M. 2 NVME and stupidly fast. Load times are still 20-35 seconds, so it's definitely setup related. I'm a Rift S user. Are people with faster times using a different setup?
  6. They really are! I'd argue it should be rebalanced, based on what I've encountered so far. Only up to chapter 4 though, so early days. The upgrade I've bought is a godsend. To be fair, sounds like if you do laser sight then reflex sight in that order, it could well be worth it. Sounds good, but based on earlier advice it'll have to get in the queue behind assault rifle upgrades. I'm not spoilering that, as its inclusion is spoilered in the latest patch notes [rolleyes.gif] >_<
  7. What upgrades are recommended? Best spoiler them. I was saving up for ages and finally saw upgrade station #3 at the end of chapter 3. So I spunked a load on: Which I have not regretted one iota. Obvs I'd like the: But should I save up for the: Or is there something for the coming up that's even more crucial?
  8. It doesn't work like that; there are some arcs that are better than others. Best advice is to check this out and watch these arcs, then mop-up other stuff if you're not sated. https://nerdist.com/article/star-wars-clone-wars-15-essential-episodes-arcs/
  9. I consider Heart of Darkness to basically be DLC (EDIT: hey, I got that completely wrong! Didn't realise it was its own thing!) Future Wars is a Delphine team effort, no?
  10. Are there really only the first two episodes of season 7 of Clone Wars on the UK version so far?
  11. I'll record the time it takes next time i'm on, but it's around 20-30 seconds. And this is on a no-slouch Samsung SSD. I'm using an Oculus Rift S, SSD and have 16GB of system RAM. Just noticed my 2060 only has 6GB though. I was sure it was 8GB
  12. I've not watched this one, but really like the guy's stuff so expect it's great: The Gman review is also up, but CHOCK FULL OF SPOILERS so don't watch this until you've completed the game (which is a bit pointless...) He echoes the issues with crazy-slow load times, and before I clicked off - as he seemed determined to show every quirk and secret going - he says the same thing I've said, that it's nothing revalatory in terms of controls and physics, but it's graphically amazing, extremely polished, and the universe and world-building is incredible.
