  1. Let's be honest, I had never heard the name of the guy but had used his invention soooo many times. And since the very beginning, as it so happens that the very first Game I ever played was Gradius, on NES. Kazuhisa Hashimoto was the "inventor'" of the famous Konami code and passed away on Feb. 25th and with him goes another page of gaming history... RIP

    Well, you're French. Of course you'd be surprised at the idea of not surrendering at the first hint of difficulty.

     

    Come on, seriously?!? Don't even feel like imagining what you could have written, had I been German...

     

    Anyway, as it seems some people felt my post was rude or offensive (which it was not meant to be) I'll just develop the idea beneath. Anyone who feels like challenging himself has several "tougher than tough" games to consider, with really difficult trophy lists to complete: Super Meat Boy, Sine Mora, Downwell, Crypt of the Necrodancer, etc. These are tough but technically doable for highly skilled (& perseverant) gamers.

     

    Attacking Zegeta 2 is different and as far as I can see, it's just a massive troll. Why otherwise isn't there a single player to have earned a single trophy the legit way? Why otherwise isn't there anyone to have actually finished the game? Why otherwise would the devs keep on letting their (rare) customers in the complete fog about trophy requirements? Can't see the fun in it. Nothing less, nothing more.

     

    That being said, have a nice day/evening all and good luck in your attempt to conquer the seemingly unconquerable fortress :-)

  3. Ignoring the negative feedbacks, I bought the recent Secret of Mana remaster, hoping I would somehow recover the feelings I had when playing the original one on Super Nintendo as a kid. I just had forgotten that I’m no longer a kid and felt quite disappointed, as predictable... Nostalgia sometimes sucks 😒

    I expect 1080p 60 fps, maybe 1440p on the pro but nothing more. (Definitely not 720p, what the..)

     

    For this kind of game you definitely want to focus on framerate more than resolution. But I agree a 1080p/60fps combo is a sheer minimum nowadays for a remaster...

    Not relevant to REMASTERED version of Uncharted ;)

     

    Sorry, just had to ;).


    You did well to actually 😁

    It was with PS3 games, obviously 😉

    Just play it unpatched then.


    Or wait for the PS+ digital version next week so you no longer have to bother with the disc, might be worth a try...

    Did that, three or four times, to test it out with and without the patch. Only time everything worked flawlessly was without the patch.


    Quite weird. First assumption was, if it’s neither the patch nor your disc then it’s logical to assume it’s an hardware issue... But this ?

     

    The Blu-ray drive of my PS3 just let go a few years ago without any warning. Played a game just fine, the next day it would no longer read it.

  7. Quite a tough choice to make... I just somehow realized how many awesome games have been released lately, it’s been a great treat for players 👍

     

    With no order of priority, would go for:

     

    - God of War (2018) : probably one of my GOAT games, technically amazing with great gameplay and a compelling story. As close to perfect as you can get...

     

    - The Witcher III Wild Hunt : actually just finished it after spending countless hours doing side quests, exploring the world, fighting monsters and looting great stuff. One the greatest RPG I have laid my hands on.

     

    - Journey : this one comes from the heart, beyond rational argument or facts. Just a extremely intense experience I strongly recommend to anyone who enjoys games like no other. 

     

    At first I was surprised to see almost no Uncharted mentions, but ultimately even the fourth one, though a great game closing wonderfully Nate’s journey, lacks this little thing to get room in a top 3. Would surely see quite more occurrences in a top 10...

    I can see it, most likely the month before Hellblade 2 : Senua's Saga drops. It would be the perfect troll on the Sony Ponies


    Except that Hellblade II is to be an Xbox exclusive, now that Ninja Theory has been acquired by Microsoft... As mentioned above, it would mean for Sony to directly fund its arch-rival and contribute promoting its exclusive game. I don’t see this happening.

  9. Reviving this thread so I can develop my feelings about this game, now that I’m almost done with it. Gents, what a game!!! I’ve been on it for over six months now (I don’t play that much and tend to take my time) and don’t even feel bored or willing to quit. Rather sad to no longer have any main quest waiting for me in the log…

     

    I could write for hours about it. About its organically perfect open world, about the great narrative and the addictive plot in which your choices actually do matter, about the characters so interesting you end up caring about them, about the massive content, about the care brought by the devs to the various side quests and optional plots, about the exceptionally well-matched dialogs and how they always adapt to fit in the way the player has advanced in the story… I could keep going on and on until I bore everyone.

     

    So will just keep it simple and consider it as one of my GOAT games, along with other masterpieces like Ocarina of Time, the God of War reboot, Red Dead Redemption, F-Zero or Metroid Prime. I discovered videogames on NES in the early 90s so coming from me, that’s really saying something.

    Dont forget to play the Dlc's which are as good or even better than the main game. 1f609.png

     

    Indeed, I could not agree more. Both Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine should be set as examples for all developers who consider adding DLC to any game – both could well have been standalones actually. B&W is quite great but I particularly enjoyed HoS and its superb cast, with a special mention to Gaunter O’Dimm – man, what a freaky character! Almost a nobody when you first met him in White Orchard, and quite a bit more when he re-enters the story. The more the plot develops, the more you get uncomfortable with the bloke… Definitely my favorite villain in a quite a while!
