  1. Pretty much every point where he puts himself in a discussion is abrasive and overly difficult, so don't take it to personally. The only way he feels he is capable of interacting with community members he disagrees with (or community members in general) is to put himself at odds unecessarily with them in as many ways as possible. Better to just ignore and move on to engage with other people who aren't as combative. Hard to tell with EA if the single player might suffer as a result. I guess it could go either way at this point. Depending on the structure, it could be cool to have some co-operative gameplay in some form within the DA universe. If handled right, that is. Thanks for linking this, I'll keep my eyes and ears open for future news on it. They don't have the best track record, agreed. I wonder if the hammering they've taken this year might force them to rethink a few practices in future though. If to amend their financial losses at the very least. Andromeda soured things a bit for me too, i'm going into the idea of the new DA entry with cautious optimism. I loved Origins, enjoyed Dragon Age 2 on a very basic level, but enjoyed Inquisition far more than I thought I would. I'll keep an open mind for now i reckon.
  2. I'm cautiously optimistic. Which is to say - it looks fun, but i'll be waiting at least a month after launch to see how things play out.
  3. Thanks @Quink666! After testing it out, I can 100% confirm that the requirements for the following Trophies are accumulative across all active save games. Humanitarian - Save 20 Humans Holy Keeper - Collect 50 Angelic Artifacts Demon Keeper - Collect 50 Demonic Artifacts Soul Reaper - Collect 1,000,000 Souls Beast Mode - Kill 666 enemies while in Havoc form Balance in all things - Upgrade 5 Enhancements to Balanced I'm pretty sure anything with a total kill/collect/upgrade X amount of whatever will accumulate across playthroughs, but I listed the ones above as they were the ones that I finished the game on and hadn't unlocked yet.
  4. Just wondering if progress for things like Holy and Demonic Keeper & 1 mill soul collections carries over between playthroughs. Can anyone confirm this? I've been hearing conflicting reports. If it does, i'll start in on an easy difficulty and get collecting again. If not, i'll put some time into backtracking
  5. [Darksiders 3] Just finished this on Apocalyptic. Easily my favourite story of the 3 games so far. Cannot wait for the next part of the story.

  7. I think our cats might be related!

  8. I'm 3 bosses in on Apocalyptic and it's honestly not necessary to exploit it. If you prepare properly, explore fully, spend points in the right way and practice dodge-counters, it's really do-able. If you play this like a Dark Souls game, it's much easier. It's also far more forgiving in comparison.
  9. [Darksiders 3] It's getting mixed reviews, but i'm loving it so far. It's definitely lifted a huge amount of gameplay mechanics directly from the souls games, even the little glowing orbs hovering above corpses and the accumulation of souls to spend on abilities, it's all there. I've enjoyed it thoroughly, but it's made me realize how confusing I find the overall Darksiders franchise timeline timeline.

      @LegacyJKO09 - I think that's a really good strategy, in hindsight, I would have definitely waited for this to go down in price. Not that it's a bad game at all, it just feels a bit rough around the edges in parts.

      @Dragon-Archon - Granted i'm just under halfway through now (I think), but the world is definitely packed with stuff. It doesn't have any big empty open areas to traverse like in DS2 and instead layers in loads of corridors, tunnels and rooms to find and explore. I really like the level design in this one. I'm constantly finding a broken bit of floor or a gap to fall in that opens up into a network of tunnels or a doorway that leads to a bunch of floors to explore. I get a real sense of reward for exploring and also going back to older areas with new abilities too.

      Nice, that's good to know. What about the collectibles: does the game keep track of them (preferably per dungeon/area/world/whatever)?

      @Dragon-Archon - I completely missed this question! You can't track exactly how many of an item you've picked up and there is no map, which takes some getting used to. But I figured out that the game tracks the majority of trophy requirements across multiple play-throughs:

       

  10. I'm pretty sure that PS Now will end up being the main place to access back catalogue games in the future. I'd predict that PS5 will start to introduce streaming functionality in a more specific and focused way to start the ball rolling.
  11. I'd love a Bloodborne 2 and I'm sure that loads of folks would like another Dark Souls game, but I think Hidetaka Miyazaki already stated they weren't making anymore because they don't want to over-expose the souls brand. I have a feeling that Sekiro is going to be more along the lines of a Ninja Gaiden X Tenchu style game, but what i'd love for their unannounced titles to be something science fiction and/or contemporary horror related, I reckon they could do some interesting stuff with those genres.
  12. All Swordmastery skills should be cross-functional, unless they state otherwise on the tooltip
  13. Decisions decisions, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is heavily discounted in the sale, I have the first two games queued in my playlist unplayed. I'm trying to work out if this will get even cheaper in the next 6 months when i can get around to playing it.

      That game also caught my eye.  Did they fix all the glitches in it?  If they did, I'd definitely buy it to add to the franchise.

  14. Thanks for this @Obi-Wan Kenobi! I'm going to be building my 2019 playlist next week, but picking from this list and anticipating a few more titles popping up in the year, this is my loose set of choices so far. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown (PS4, Xbox One) – January 18 [Will play at some point in 2019] I've never played an Ace Combat game before and a few of my friends are fans of the series singing it's praises. I think i'll give this one a shot! Resident Evil 2 (PS4, Xbox One, PC) – January 25 [100% day 1 essential purchase] This is going to me my 100th Platinum and currently my most anticipated game of 2019 Kingdom Hearts III (PS4, Xbox One) – January 29 [Will play at some point in 2019] Not sure how to feel about this one, it's been so long since it was announced. I think before i play this, I want to play all the previous entries first though. Far Cry: New Dawn (PS4, Xbox One, PC) – February 15 [Will play at some point in 2019] I'll definitely play this, but I want to finish Far Cry 5 first, it looks really interesting, similar to the Rage 2 colour scheme Metro Exodus (PS4, Xbox One, PC ) – February 22 [100% day 1 essential purchase] I'm so excited for this, had a blast with the first game and am currently loving Last Light. The Division 2 (PS4, Xbox One, PC) – March 15 [100% day 1 essential purchase] Loved the first one and made more online friends playing it than any other online game i've played. Can't wait to jump back in! That's quite a few games, and i'm pretty sure these are going to be just a fraction of all the titles that will come out in 2019!
  15. Just two more days before I can switch off and enjoy some solid gaming and be able to get started on my Christmas movies list. For those of you that are celebrating - what Christmas movies are you aiming to watch over Christmas?

    My traditionally watched movies are: Home Alone, Die Hard, Krampus, Scrooged & Trading Places
