  1. It'd be amazing to get a 'making of' for this, but I guess going by R* being the secretive bastards they are (and alleged slavemasters ) we'll probably not get it. I do think it's genuinely the most stunning looking game I've ever played though. The only game that has a similar attention to detail is probably something like a Witcher 3 and an Uncharted 4, but in general the landscape of RDR2 remains by far the more appealing than those!

  3. I will just say that I still think the eyes in Mass Effect are right up there too. Just to make you happy
  4. I think the eyes in W3 are better, but it's still a close call. Plus, there's the small fact that you think the sky in Toussaint is wrong, so clearly your eyes are the dead ones :p
  5. I do think you’re way off the mark with the facial animations...watch ‘em again, and you’ll see some amazing little ‘ticks’ and slight movements on them that are absolutely top tier. As ever, there are ones which are better than others, but in general they’re astonishingly good.

    John Wick 3: Parabellum - May 2019

    Warms the cockles of my heart to read all the good vibes from this . I absolutely love both of the previous films, so absolutely can't wait to watch the fella. Might have to give them another viewing to get in the mood

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    Ah, just bung in Mass Effect again
  8. Have to say I'm still trying to come up with suitable words to use to describe how I feel about the game. I finished it a couple of days ago, and have been spending a little extra time doing a bit of a tour around the place - catching up on surviving members of the gang. Taking a trip to Armadillo was fun too - love how the cholera epidemic was shown when it was something that you heard about in the original game! Suffice to say, I think for me the game's on a par with Witcher 3 in terms of how much I enjoyed it. I know they're both open world, but they're both very different beasts in a number of ways so I'm happy for it to be a tie. I do think RDR2 has the most amazing world I've ever spent time in though - aside from the aborted first attempt at the game on my old PS4, my full run through on the Xbox X has been nothing short of a revelation. I can honestly say no game has ever held my attention so well through the month or so it took to go through it. I don't think there's been a day go by that I haven't been humming one of the tunes or thinking about the characters in it! I can well see how it wouldn't have been for everyone - it's almost luxuriously slow in it's pace - it actively wants to do anything and everything aside from the main thrust of the story at times, and honestly it never failed to entertain me. I think the most astonishing thing is just how much I came to care for the characters - they're tropes, and they're straight out of the movies and books I used to read when I was young, but I loved them then, and I love them now. R* added some extra sauce into the mix and honestly throughout the final couple of chapters I was getting on for being an emotional wreck half the time :p I can see why R* have dubbed it a companion piece to RDR though - it's one of the few series I can remember where it doesn't matter in which order you play them - I just booted up the original again, and I'm already getting more out of it now - just as I got loads out of a replay of the it before I ran the RDR2. And I'll probably carry on, because at this moment in time I don't want to leave this world, and I'm struggling to think of any game on the horizon that I want to play because of them both. (Obviously, Cyberpunk'll be the next one, but god knows when that's going to hit - my PC is ready and willing however ). It would be genuinely amazing if they could make RDR in the updated RAGE engine though - they've done all the landscaping, they've already got steller acting and a great story, so it would be practically the best thing ever (or at least for a little while) if they did that! However, RDR has aged rather gracefully, truth be told so I won't be too upset. But yeah, it's flat out incredible that this game has been made, it runs fantastically well and has such a long running time and yet I was never bored and honestly never wanted the thing to end. I'm grateful that I've had the opportunity to have played it.
  9. Dutch always had a soft spot for John though - early on in the game you get a lot of Arthur moaning about it. I just thought in that moment, he had a second of clarity and did the right thing.

    Xbox One backwards compatibility

    Anyone know if GTA 4 is any good on BC? Playing it via PC is such a huge ball ache because of the old Games for Windows Live crap and I honestly can't be arsed to faff around fiddling with it, but thought I'd quite like to play it again.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    The Pantone colour is ‘Witcher Poo Brown’ by the way. Black or nothing as far as I’m concerned Admittedly, I play the game without upgrading my armour at all as I can’t see him in anything other than the original set, so what do I know

    Games Workshop, An Appreciation Thread

    I'm always interested in trying out new paints! I can see them being an addition to my arsenal quite easily. All sorts of fun things to do with them outside of what they're marketed for!

    All things Yakuza! - Start with Yakuza Zero

    Have we had any confirmation that 6 is coming to PC at all?

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    Toussaint - it's odd that I've actually only been there once! All my previous run throughs were before that DLC had come out, so there's shed-loads there that I've still yet to do! That particular mission definitely being on I've missed. Lovely.

    Metro Exodus - First on the Epic Store

    I often wondered if it was just the fault of the translation that made Metro such a difficult game to like! Just never took to the games at all unfortunately. There's a lot of technical greatness going on in the games, but mixed with a huge amount of jank. Normally this doesn't usually matter to me, but in this instance it hit hard.
