I'm going to pick up GTA V tomorrow. To be honest I feel slightly skeptical about it. I was pretty hyped about it prior to the release but now I just feel underwhelmed. I think maybe I should pick up something else but I really feel like playing anything else at the moment.

The new WWE game looks pretty good.

Spent a few hours now on Darkest Dungeon. etc

Hahaha and I just opened this thread to post something about Darkest Dungeon... seems like it's quite unbalanced from what you say. As I am not interested at all in trying "early access" games, I'll patiently wait until they balance it up. I really have high hopes for it too.


In other news, Ultima Underworld 2's official sequel is getting a kickstarter as I write this... *cries*

If they balance it up! Fairly sure they will a little but this is one of those games predicated on being rock hard, so the devs might feel too much pride in that regard and insist that it's supposed to be this way. It doesn't feel like an early-access game though. More like a well-polished Beta (which is better than some fully released triple AAAs these days).

I also picked it up for PS3 to so I could play couch so me and my girlfriend would have something to play. I gotta say, I enjoy it more on console than I did on PC. It's far more challenging - especially the boss fights. The addition of rolling adds a lot to the experience.


it's a great deal of rock 'em sock 'em fun... and also fits the secondary requirement of a game, zero internet connectivity required. can't play a game of FIFA15 without it disconnecting, so shit like Destiny or whatever are right out for me.

I've not really noticed them - too busy getting killed by stuff I thought was dead. Love how you've got to burn things to keep them dead!

I guess you're playing it on a decent size tv. On a monitor they took up way too much space. If you want Resident Evil action you should probably look into the HD re-master of the remake of the original game *breath* (was originally a Gamecube game but they ported it to the new consoles).

Actually my TV is small but obviously much bigger than a computer screen.

They redid the original? Wow. Did they capture the vibe including brilliantly awful dialogue ("You were almost a Jill sandwich")?

It's a very faithful and pretty remake, though the dialogue was re-done it seems. On the PC version I think there's a way to patch in the original dialogue though.

Shame about the dialoge being remade though it does look very faithful to the original. Nothing has ever matched the first two Resident Evil games in terms of horror experience (though Silent Hill was good).

Yeah ages ago on the Gamecube (which can be picked up for under £5 second hand still compare to the full priced HD remaster). I never completed it but they redesigned bits of it in a faithful and beneficial way, such as the snake fight. They also introduced reviving zombies so you have to burn them as you go, which makes the game much harder as fuel was pretty scarce if I recall.

Hey guys, did you know that we who post on this thread are unwashed basement-dwellers who dabble in oppressing women and rape? I know because Law and Order: Special Victims Unit told me, and a lot of mainstream media seems to agree!



Holy fuck, is it the nineties again?

Can't see the video, but I can't say I'm surprised. At the moment in France, a series of TV spots advertising a hotline dedicated to troubled teenagers is running on the main channels, those watched by your average French person. Topics adressed: drugs, alcohol, violence and video games. All on the same level.
It's a cycle: now that they're done with movies, anime and music as minions of Satan, they go back to video games.

Oh well, the episode is called "Intimidation Game" if you're interested in watching the most hilarious unintentional parody I've seen in a while. This is what happens when you let Jack Thompson write TV scripts.

Also, for added hilarity, the same gaming "journalists" who've spent months and months calling their readers sub-human, racist, homophobic and misogynistic scum are now flipping out when a show portrays their readers as such. You can't make this shit up.

Playing Demon's Souls again because i've never finished it D: Going dex for the first time. Boletaria is the most perfect castle evarrr. Think i'm slowly turning into one of those people that prefer Demon's over Dark 1.

As time goes on, I'm getting more and more confirmation that game development business is a huge magnet for the most shameless, spineless wimps on this side of the Milky Way.

So apparently, some guy completed Order 1886 in 5 hours and documented that roughly half the game-time is taken by unskippable cutscenes. When people rightly started flipping shit over it, this happened:

The most infuriating bit of all of that is that the cutscenes are allegedly unskippable. I don't care how cinematic you want the experience to be. In this day and age if you have unskippable cutscenes you should go swim in lava. Lets say it was 5 hours long. I don't care how good your story is. I don't care if it manages to put Spec Ops: The Line's story to shame. 5 hour game with what seems to be with as near as makes no difference, no replayability for $60 US, $100 AUD is pathetic value for money. Not many people consider that much money as disposable. So lets hope it was just a speedrun and that game is infact double that...AND good.

Tried Forced the other day and it was a big letdown. I like the concept but the execution is flawed at best, horrible at worst. The whole character movement feels unfinished, graphics seem unpolished and I always feel I'm playing some low-cost budget game. The challenge aspect is what drove me into enduring the 2hours but It got tiring after a while.

Co-Op is cool, I'll give it that, but the negative aspects dont go away in this mode.

Nope, allegedly the guy was playing at a moderate pace. He didn't go after all the collectibles and shit, but he didn't rush through it either. And some other guy wasn't too busy and compiled a detailed time table watching the long play.


Prologue - Total | 12:28 --> Gameplay | 3:39 - QTE | 1:58 - Cutscenes | 6:50
Chapter 1 - Total | 29:23 --> Gameplay | 20:20 - Cutscenes | 9:03
Chapter 2 - Total | 16:33 --> Gameplay | 6:43 - Cutscenes | 9:49
Chapter 3 - Total | 46:00 --> Gameplay | 32:36 - QTE | 0:54 - Cutscenes | 12:30
Chapter 4 - Total | 24:25 ---> Gameplay | 12:20 - QTE | 2:21 - Cutscenes | 9:46
Chapter 5 - Total | 32:41 --> Gameplay | 24:17 - QTE | 0:32 - Cutscenes | 7:52
Chapter 6 - Total | 7:32 --> Gameplay | 1:42 - QTE | 0.18 - Cutscenes | 5:32
Chapter 7 - Total | 6:41 ---> Cutscenes | 6:41
Chapter 8 - Total | 21:37 --> Gameplay | 9:30 - QTE | 0:07 - Cutscenes | 12:00

Chapter 10 - Total | 4:07 --> Cutscenes | 4:07
Chapter 11 - Total | 44:15 --> Gameplay | 33:13 - QTE | 1:07 - Cutscenes | 9:55

Chapter 14 - Total | 5:31 --> Gameplay | 1:47 - Cutscenes | 3:44
Chapter 15 - Total | 10:48 --> Gameplay | 9:24 - Cutscenes | 1:24
Chapter 16 - Total | 9:23 --> QTE | 2:33 - Cutscenes | 6:50

Walkthrough - Total | 325:17 --> Gameplay | 186:48 - QTE | 11:03 - Cutscenes | 127:26

Percentages
Gameplay | 57,43%
QTE | 3.4%
Cutscenes | 39.17%

Note chapters 7, 10 and 12, specially 10. The fuckers made a 4 minute cutscene and called it a "chapter". I hope PS4 owners are getting their money's worth.

Nice to see it getting hammered. Finally finished Demon's Souls after my 3rd attempt. Valley of Defilement ruined it for me the first time and the Storm King the 2nd time cause i didn't know you could kill the rays without arrows. Hard to pick between DeS and DaS. DaS has better bosses but the DeS bosses are more 'lovable'. Managed to end up a with a streak of 17-0 against bosses this playthrough which i'm pretty happy with. DeS has the better worlds. Boletaria is properly inspired world design in a nutshell. Valley of Defilement is a disgusting, maggoty, malaria ridden cesspool that is really the best swamp world out of the three souls games. It gets intense as the journey from the archstone to boss and the shortcut to make that whole trip shorter is quite an arduous one. There's a certain mystique with the Shrine of Storms. Stonefang is my least favourite but I like its premise. Tower of Latria was jaw dropping, especially 3-2. I could go on for hours about what made it so special. It really hits the sweet spot. Probably my favourite location in all of video games. The only thing i'm really not a fan of is the tendency stuff in DeS. Bloodborne seems to be most reminiscent of Tower of Latria so now i'm pretty damn psyched to see what they can come up with.

Lots of Souls talk

I agree with most of what you said about Demon's Souls. The world design was so great and, indeed, world 3 was amazing. One of my favorite levels in any video game. I'm one of the few that prefers Demon's Souls to Dark Souls, but that might be because it came first.

Right before I started Tower of Latria I was telling a buddy how I prefer DaS over Des SIMPLY because of the tendency stuff. Now with Latria under my belt, I couldn't be able to give you a confident answer on which I prefer...

I never really cared about the tendency thing and just ignored it until I had to figure out how it works to get the platinum trophy (I noticed I was close to having all the trophies, so I figured why not )

Certain aspects about it I like. I mean, I like how defeating a boss brings it closer to white and how closer to black it is the harder the enemies are + the better drop rate. What I dislike is how it puts restrictions on area and NPC accessibility. I don't want to suicide half a dozen times just to meet Mephistopheles or play extra carefully to raise it to pure white just to meet Executioner Miralda in body form or get access to the Dragon Bone Smasher. They fucking taunt you bigtime with those awesome character loading screens! "hey you wanna meet this guy? Well fuck off, you can't because you suck at the game".

I wish there was more incentives regarding game achievements. I mean it's silly for Souls not have an achievement for beating all bosses in a PT w/o dying. I say that because I just did it in the DeS PT and I want evidence so I can flaunt my massive souls dick.
