  1. Haven't played it yet but I only hear people talking positively about it. I've pre-ordered it digitally, sounds kike a game I'll play a couple of times over the years. In other news, I cancelled on my Labo pre-order for now. So much in my backpog and so many games coming out that I'm also interested in... Labo didn't make the cut.
  2. It's weird how Mass Effect Andromeda is already being sold in the used game store for €13 because there are too many people bringing it in and not enough people buying it, yet at this point even that low price can't bring me to give it a chance.

      @ShadowReplicant This guy.. You seem overly cynical towards this game, and I'm guessing you're a huge fan. My favorite thing is Dragon Ball, and I don't mind GT. This is more like that is to Dragon Ball, if you ask me.  Andromeda is not a complete train wreck, like that god-awful Hollywood adaptation, DB: Evolution. It's worth playing.

      I think that for anything under €15, I wouldn't regret buying it actually. Point is that there's so many better games either in my backlog or coming out soon... God Of War on PS4 this week (and it's a huge one), Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze on Switch in two weeks... Games like Hitman, The Fall 2, Yooka-Laylee, Skyrim and Robinson are still part of my backlog. I got €25 trade-in value for Assassin's Creed Origins so I decided to get Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered (which was that price used, so 1-on-1 trade) which is another big game for my backlog. When I have these titles to play, Andromeda just doesn't seem worth putting those other games on hold for.

      Yeah, I don't know if it would be. I played it right away, so I could get the multiplayer trophies done, while there were still some people playing. Lol. But I enjoyed my time with it. My save file is ~63 hours, but it's probably a lot shorter than that, if you don't do all the sidequests. I skipped some tasks since I would have had to look up how to complete them, but did everything else the game had to offer. 

       

      It isn't like Star Ocean 5, where I can't imagine why reviewers would give it the scores they did, but I found it fun enough. 

  3. Wow, dissing a typo from someone whose native language is not English. That's a nice new low you've shamelessly gone to there. And @Schwifty Swifty's original point was a decent one, which you indeed severely butchered and misinterpreted to such an extent that it's impossible to reply to that with a straight face.
  4. I already am a scientist, so being a wizard. Summer or winter?
  5. @SyIaris @RizzleAbbey12 I got the platinum in Assassin's Creed Origins and I loved that game so much more than Telltale's Batman so I want to use its image instead of Batman's for this month. That's two platinums and a 100% this month. Both platinums work for the hardcore requirement. I also got all DLC 100%ed for Origins.
  6. Well, Assassin's Creed Origins was the best AC game in years and I had a lot of fun getting through it all.

     

    Going to have to wait a year or two on a new title, but that's okay because enough cool games are being released. For instance, I managed to trade my Assassin's Creed Origins for Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered.

  7. I get that from time to time. Not with God Of War, which I'm only getting day one because of the great deal I got on it. Last PlayStation games I got it on were Assassin's Creed Origins and South Park: The Fractured But Whole.
  8. Platinum in Assassin's Creed Origins, story and 100% in the final DLC... Good day. Traded Assassin's Creed Origins for Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered. Yay, loophole! Other than that, I cancelled my Labo pre-order. So many games happening now, I need to focus.
  9. Trophy #7000 in the bag!

      Nice choice. 👍
      My trophy #7000 was "The Conqueror". (AC Revelations platinum) 🙂
      And the Origins plat was also a milestone (:platinum:#175) 🙃

  10. Well, I did a bunch of easy trophies in other games and I'm at 6998 trophies now. Assassin's Creed Origins platinum, here I come.

  11. I still haven't gotten beyond Act 1 in the first game. I liked the second game, but those main characters were so annoyingly millennial that it seriously took me a while to figure out it wasn't supposed to be tongue in cheek but that the game was completely straight faced about it.
  12. Personally I thought Breath Of The Wild was brilliant. It deviated from the Zelda formula in many ways but kept other stuff very familiar. To me, it managed to be huge without feeling either bloated or empty. My guess is that a lot of the negative opinions about Zelda are because it changes so much to the formula. And, let's be frank, some sore losers who don't like it when Nintendo games get 10/10s across the board. There'll also be justified negative opinions though, of course. There's no golden game that's liked by everybody (no, Naughty Dog fans, not even The Last Of Us, so don't even try), and people who expected the usual smaller-but-stuffed-with-content Zelda may well be justified when they say the game felt empty for them. I do think that Mario Odyssey did not deserve all the 10/10s though. Yeah, it's a fun game (8/10 or 9/10 from me personally), but it's very safe, not breaking the mold anywhere. And the game overall could have been a bit harder, especially after they claimed that Odyssey would be for the core viewer. And there's too many moons for meaningless things, so they don't have the same feeling that stars did in 64. Relating this to God Of War: I expect that the critics all fainted from the artsy cinematic story presentation. But hey, I appreciate good presentation, and the gameplay seems very decent, so I am reasonably sure that I know how high to set my expectations and that I won't be disappointed either positively or negatively.
  13. Haven't you read the thread? If you have any negative opinion about a work generally considered to be good, you'll be tarred and feathered and chased off of the site with pitchforks and torches.
  14. I'm from Holland, I don't know of this distinction between paid and free television, it works differently over here. Yeah, I guess it's not so easy to become a longrunner with great comedy, as longrunners usually are dumbed down so a big audience can watch. Just recently, I argued that it's a bad sign about our society how garbage like Keeping Up With The Kardashians manages to go on for a decade and a half now while a smart show like Dirk Gently's gets cancelled after two seasons for not having enough viewers. It's the television equivalent of the AAA sandbox RPG versus the original but unknown indie game. I'm afraid that the game will feel very derivative - it's no secret that critics will drool over anything semi-artistic regardless of the whole picture. Since it's the first GOW game I've pre-ordered, it should be clear though that I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt. Though that is in large part because of the low price I could get it for
  15. Might just be me, but I think stuff like The Godfather holds up really well. I can't see what's so good about Citizen Kane, though. Might be that you both are just forgetting all the bad comedy we had at that point, and only remember the best. For what it's worth, shows that I enjoyed a lot in the last few years that are (partly) comedies: Rick And Morty, Bojack Horseman, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, Brooklyn Nine Nine, QI, Community, Arrested Development, 30 Rock (though admittedly I still have to watch beyond the first season), Archer, A Series Of Unfortunate Events... Anyway, just three days to go! I'm curious to see if God Of War lives up to the hype it's getting now this past week.
