I game on every major platform across as wide a variety of genres as possible.
I despise console wars.
Played Dark Souls 1 for the first time since 2 came out last night.
Jesus Christ on a bike it is a technical mess. 2 is such a massive improvement in that respect that I really do need applaud them for making that frame-rate call.
I still think the design of 1 is superior (except the stats) but 2 absolutely smashes it in the engineering department. I wish the bosses had been in the same league as 1.
That goes for the online system as well, wonderful system that in reflection was about as well implemented as Brawl.
Will be taking a look at Demon’s again in the coming days too.
Oh totally. We also have Ryse here which I’ll be testing on another day, but I have a feeling I’m going to like that one less.
This isn’t bad at all, it’s still very pretty and so far totally standard shooter.
Lighting has been very impressive so far, a few really crummy textures, character models have been great but animation on my own feet is awful.
It’s about time that all FPSs let you see your feet, so props to them for that, but I also don’t want to see myself skating around as my legs adjust.
Looks like we don’t have inFamous yet, so I’ve been playing Killzone for a bit.
It’s VERY pretty, hopefully ill get to some gameplay eventually.
Shit now I have to play Demon’s again.
I’ve just always enjoyed their movies
“meddling with souls” bit with the King
Oh man, yeah I thought of that immediately too.
Different characters, different builds.
Once I finish a Souls game I can pretty much waltz through the whole thing again at a brisk pace, but this time looking for more sekrits.
Been using the Bonfire Ascetics to push areas to NG++ for special items
It’s my only escape from the horrors of ASSembly.
Yeah I heard some things, I should check that out.
Well I’ve finished Dark Souls 2 about 4 times over now so I GUESS I should play something else.
Is Second Son really as short as people say? I have access to the PS4/Xbone in the interactive media room so I can play them over the weekend now.
Yeah I still don’t know what her deal is.
I think it’s some weird Demon’s Souls throwback.
ending even though that had nothing to do with the player’s original goal
To be fair the Emerald Herald does ask you if you’re the new monarch when you meet her.
Oh dude, Sony are making games now?!?
Why did the writers refuse to go with a happy ending rather than these stupid twists?
You know the very end scene where the kids tell him to move on from their mother’s death and go after Robin?
They filmed that 9 years ago.
Anyone who tells you they are the same thing is a filthy liar and I will FIGHT them.
WAKE UP SHEEPLE
Aw that’s such a reasonable conspiracy theory, can’t we jazz it up with some aliens and mind control?
I honestly didn’t know American soda didn’t use real sugar until I saw a shop with imported American sodas in.
I was like “What the hell is Pepsi Throwback?”
I only drink Diet Coke anyway so I don’t taste either corn syrup or sucrose normally but another soda fun fact: mainland European countries sell Coca Cola Light instead of Diet Coke and it’s ACTUAL GARBAGE.
Since I began programming, I thought it was a good excuse to buy a “real” PC
Shelter was like the most tense and upsetting game I’ve ever played, and I’m just not equipped to handle the stress that looking after cute baby badgers entails.
Having said that, it’s really good and I’m very glad I played it.
I really enjoyed that, visually it hit all the right notes with the colour-scheme and props.
I’m a huge fan of Human Revolution’s AV design so I hope the actual film can match that.
Human augmentation with corporate espionage is a fantastic premise for a film, although I would like less “IT WAS THE ILLUMINATI!” in a movie adaptation.
What sarcasm? Surely you can’t believe anyone would reply with sarcasm to such a completely earnest and not at all facetious post with sarcasm?
You’re totally right, considering your post was so wonderfully earnest and utterly non-sarcastic, I absolutely should respond in kind with similarly non-sarcastic replies.
There can obviously be no merit to replying to someone’s post with an exaggerated and silly response, I understand that from your continued communication, and totally agree. That would be immensely frustrating for someone who wrote a well intentioned and serious post :)
Who in their right mind would do such a thing?
I have like 50 billion worthless PS1/2 games (old FIFAs, random driving games, every licensed game you can think of and multiple copies of each one) that I got from a school when they were refurbishing, along with 7 PS2s.
Might be worth a look I guess.
I have a dual monitor setup right now, but only for doing work ;_;
I’m trying to think if I have a third one lying around somewhere, because I’ve ALWAYS wanted to try 3 with a game that actually supports it.
Having said that, you seem to have done ok with Revengeance and it does look pretty sweet…
But I completely agree with your POV :)
I also think a game primarily about watching women in spaghetti string bikinis is entirely unfair to men, and am shocked that no-one has stood up for them until now.
It’s honestly a wonder that men want to develop games at all, given that they’re often an afterthought in marketing, focus groups and the games themselves.
I was also disappointed with the lack of sexually objectified male characters in a game primarily created as titillation for heterosexual males, and I also feel said titillation focused game to be entirely analogous with the rest of the industry.
I’m not worried by any of this because I think Dead Or Alive: Beach Volleyball is the watermark for what video games can achieve, so it’s absolutely ok to use it as a counter point to an argument, without facetiously dismissing it under the pretence of actual discussion.
