  1. Actually, I'm glad about this: having sold Battlefront a long time ago, I regretted my decision a little when the Scarif content was announced.
  2. While there are many great PS2 games which I played in different versions (e.g. TimeSplitters on the Gamecube or the Ratchet and Clank series on the PS3), I don't even remember ever owning twenty (or even ten) PS2 games. I do however remember that Champions of Norrath and Champions Return to Arms were the reason for me to initially buy a multitap and later insist on getting the first model of the PS3 so that I could keep playing those games. Such a shame that Sony completely dropped both this series and the genre as a whole.
  3. It would be great to see a revival of the Norrath franchise, or at least a new Untold Kingdom.
  4. Thanks, that's what I thought.
  5. I recently finished the third and fourth season of The Man in the High Castle and I'm a little disappointed. The first three seasons were captivating, had interesting characters and storylines - and then the fourth season throws it all away: half the cast is missing, instead of intricate politics we just have a lot of killing and even within the season I felt that many things didn't work out. For example, John Smith reminded me of the terrible way Jamie Lannister was handled in the final season of GoT, and they tease interesting things regarding the portal and how it cursed the protagonist just to not address it afterwards at all except for a bunch of people coming through. The only part (apart from Kenneth Tigar's acting) that surprised me in a positive way was Helen's story. And just an hour ago I watched the finale of another fourth season, this one far better than the last: The Magicians. I love the books and the way those and the show captivate me feels similar to how it was a long time ago with Harry Potter. Afterwards I saw in a trailer that the fifth season is already running, but for some reason it's not available on Amazon yet (at least not here).
  6. A couple of days ago a friend gave me this game and I played for some time (the last thing I did was doing a bunch of fetch quests in a village until some aggressive... stove-people(?) appeared). So far I have to say: I don't like it very much. The controls, the camera, the lack of checkpoints, invisible walls everywhere I don't think I've found one redeeming quality so far. Maybe it's the fact that I didn't play the original version twenty years ago, but MediEvil just doesn't appeal to me (so far). So, my question to you: should I keep playing or is there no reason to because the game doesn't change drastically later on?
  7. My favourite games this last year were Crash Team Racing, Cat Quest II and - back when I had a Switch - Yoshi. Those were also already all of the good games released in 2019 that I played, I'm looking forward to playing Trine 4 and Star Wars.
  8. Sacrificing kick me signs also gives you a toy (along with two other items), but I don't know if that's actually cheaper - we just had a ton of them anyway.
  9. during the same time period? Or did you at some point go to Mormo and start a new round?
  10. A friend and I 'completed' the game today, but even after running around for some time in the seventh iteration we're still missing a whopping 25 penguins. Every once in a while one escapes, but even so there wouldn't have been nearly enough of them. Are there any tips? Is there any knowledge regarding when and where they spawn? I was thinking that maybe moving between two small areas might be a good idea, but so far I haven't been able to find out whether there is a finite amount of them per century or whether we can at least stay in our present version of the world without being distracted by Mormo and the other aspects that should be obsolete after the last boss fight.
  11. That was my feeling as well. To me it seemed as if J.J.Abrams had a trilogy planned out but in the end he only got two films to explain the story since Rian Johnson could not be bothered to put a significant amount of plot into the Last Jedi. I watched episode IX last night and the most entertainment I got out of it came definitely from the audience which had some strong opinions about some scenes
  12. I used the speed class and the shortcut; it took me a long time to get a feeling for the boosting and turning just before that section, but it still felt a lot easier than dealing with the bridge. So, if all else fails, you could try that strategy.
  13. Wow, will games really look this great a year from now?
  14. Well, I've nothing really deserving of the title 'like LiS' for you, but you might want to take a look at Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, Valiant Hearts: The Great War, Never Alone or Seasons After Fall. Rime is a game I would have 'enjoyed' a lot more had I been the one watching instead of playing it, some parts were just too tough. But the story and music (the title (?) song was made by Lindsey Stirling 😍) are brilliant. Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is also not bad. (And also Oxenfree which I edited in in my previous post because I accidentally submitted my text before finishing it)
  15. The first time this happened to me was with Life is Strange. I don't think I've experienced anything comparable before or since (although Before the Storm was very good as well). After that it took me years to find a game that touched me in a similarly impactful way and that was NieR: Automata, which has already been mentioned a few times - and deservedly so. An incredebly intense experience that was 'repeated' sursprisingly soon afterwards with Horizon Zero Dawn. Both had a very captivating way of building their respective worlds and made me want to learn more and more about them like almost nothing before. Two honorable mentions that came quite close to this: Oxenfree, very short, very cryptic, but exactly my kind of story. BioShock Infinite: I generally don't like shooters very much and I think this might have been more or less the first one outside the Call of Duty series I finished, but the story became more interesting with every step I took. While I almost forced myself to get through the first game and skipping its sequel altogether, Infinite was so captivating I could ignore the gameplay comepletely. "There's always a lighthouse. There's always a man. There's always a city." Extraordinary. I still listen to all of these games' soundtracks and I think I'll keep listening to them for the rest of my life at least once in a while.
