  1. Me: Wow, that artwork is pretty cool Some clown on Instagram: Hrm blue cases just like last gen rob the next generation of its own identity. I'm not buying them now.
  2. Never actually played the original, my friends with the N64 had Seeds of Evil and Oblivion
  3. Just cleared the story of God of War (2018) and- along with some of the side content that I got just out of my regular gaming habits- I'm blown away. I was hooked right in from beginning to end. I loved the evolving relationship between Kratos and Areus- got serious The Last of Us vibes from it- and the gameplay itself is like a 3D Metroidvania withvisceral combat; oooh, swinging that axe and hitting things with it was so satisfying, and then finding the other weapon- [chef's kiss]. Gonna tackle the rest of the side content over the next few days to make this my :platinum: #70! Every bit deserving of its GOTY status from 2018, possibly the best game I have played from this generation!

      Everything was nice and funny and cute and flowers until kratos went for the OTHER weapon. 

      From that point onward yep. Best game of the year for me, thank you, did not expect to be hit by emotions like that. 

       

      What a wonderful game this one was.

      @Lan Stee remember when I told you about the fan service thing? That's what I was talking about :P. Felt the same way like you did. Gave me goosebumps and all that.

      @PooPooBlast I'm so, so glad I didn't know about it beforehand. I was thinking beforehand "yeah, there's no way they could make those work with this new camera anyway".

      But I was very wrong. And I was very happy. 

  4. Well, yeah, if you ignore all the locked threads and deleted/edited comments then sure, the discourse seems more mature...
  5. So Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning will have an expansion next year on top of an expanded base game? This is fantastic news. I actually bought the original KoL:R all the way back in 2012 because I had stopped playing Skyrim to wait for all the bugs to get fixed, but I needed a fantasy RPG. Though very different, I fell in love with it and I was dismayed that it didn't get the attention it deserved. Very glad the game is getting a second lease of life, and best of all, no Curt Schilling in sight!

      Hopefully it does well enough they continue the series. 

  6. 100% Saints Row: The Third! Now, at long last, I can start God of War (2018) tomorrow!

  7. #68- ASSASSIN'S CREED: ROGUE (PS3) Platinum Trophy Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 4/10 Time Taken: 6 days, 4 hours, 54 minutes (35 hours in-game) Rarity: 2.3% Ultra Rare (PSN) / 20.25% Uncommon (PSNProfiles) Hardest Trophy: Master of the North Atlantic- All legendary battles completed "I make my own luck..." So here I am at last, finished with the Assassin's Creed series on PS3. Rogue in many ways feels like an expansion on Black Flag, it often to its detriment. With Assassin's Creed: Unity launching exclusively on 8th generation platforms, Ubisoft decided that they didn't want to abandon the audience they had so they borrowed a ton of assets from Black Flag and made a new story. I was very interested by the premise of playing as a Templar, Shay Patrick Cormac, like the twist at the beginning of Assassin's Creed III. However, the storyline is very short and despite some interesting characters and developments, it falls a bit short and left me wondering what could have been if this game had been Ubisoft's full focus instead of Unity. Straight from Black Flag is the naval exploration and combat- it's all good here as well and I have to say that the Morrigan, when fully upgraded, is the coolest looking ship in the series. Nothing is much different save for the primary setting being the North Atlantic regions of Canada with frigid water that damages Shay if he swims in it for too long. A new hazard in the form of icebergs presents itself but otherwise much remains the same. I hated how Shay only had two pistols instead of four. I didn't like the grindy upgrades and waiting ages for the sips in the naval campaign to reach their destinations. The last Legendary ship battle was significantly harder than the other three as well as anything in Black Flag and the present day timeline went absolutely nowhere. But still, what was good was good and it was a nice little side game all the same. Not much else to say, really.
  8. I remember really enjoying this despite my trepidation- I really liked the Sands of Time trilogy on PS2. Lots of games went for the dark, dreary, gritty feel at this time, this one went the opposite and felt really fresh as a result. I liked the spin on Arabian mythology and the multiple combos you could do. I heard Nolan North was unhappy with the voice direction he was given- he felt the Prince should have an accent but he was told to use his normal voice. And I think the graphics have held up very nicely over time. Must boot it up again sometime.

      I didn't have time this morning, but here's a link  that proves this is perfect choice for 69.

      Amazing work and milestone, congrats! :D

  10. Platinum #68- Assassin's Creed: Rogue (PS3)

    Bit of a mixed bag. Feels like an expansion to Black Flag (not necessarily a bad thing) only stretched out way too long. Interesting premise but ultimately I don't think it really accomplished much. The post game grind was tedious as hell and the final Legendary Ship battle was a pain in the ass. But I'm glad to have it out of the way and done with all Assassin's Creed games on PS3!

      Congrats on the Platinum! 😅

       

      Saints Row: The Third is a more than adequate choice for your 69th Platinum. Have fun doing silly stuff there. :P The game can be a bit glitchy (at least it was for me), but it's still fun with all the goofy stuff you can do on it. xD

  11. That sucks. I had only one and it was a crash during the final fight. Crappy thing to happen but it literally dropped me back into the fight when I reloaded and it was halfway through, very well checkpointed for me at least. Otherwise the game performed amazingly.
  12. #66- GOD OF WAR III REMASTERED (PS4) King of the Hill Enjoyment: 9/10 Difficulty: 3/10 Time Taken: 1 day, 16 hours, 59 minutes (<20 hours in-game) Rarity: 1.7% Ultra Rare (PSN) / 15.95% Rare (PSNProfiles) Hardest Trophy: Unhuman- Beat Titan Mode "Hope is what makes us strong! It is why we are here! It is what we fight with when all else is lost..." It was only a matter of time before I got around to the remastered version of this game on PS4. Having enjoyed the game on PS3 last year (which was only the first time I had ever played it) but being a little less impressed by Ascension, I wondered if franchise fatigue had set in. However, I realise now that my issues with Ascension and how it related to the rest of the series were purely to do with the game itself, because God of War III Remastered is frigging amazing. I won't go too mu.ch into detail here since I'm sure most people are familiar with the game by now, but this truly is the definitive edition of the game. Everything looks beautiful (as it did on PS3) but now at 1080p and 60fps (gameplay and some in-engine cutscenes) it looks even more gorgeous, really holding its own against some games released in the early to mid-life of this generation. It plays and controls wonderfully, feeling as if Kratos reads my mind before I take any action. The fluid and visceral combat the series is known for is at its peak here, and the thrilling conclusion of the Greek saga makes it a truly memorable epic. The Challenges weren't as difficult this time around and I flew through the game on Titan mode as it really isn't that difficult so long as you know when to block, roll and strike effectively, as well as knowing where all the upgrades are and powering up your blades as soon as possible to unleash devastating attacks. So much fun! So now I am finished with the "classic" God of War lineup. It truly has been a stellar series and I cannot wait to move on to the 2018 GOTY, which from what I have seen is a masterpiece. Very excited to get stuck into it this week!
  13. Microtransactions in non-F2P games are cancer to gaming, and loot boxes have been one of the most aggressive forms of it. Loot boxes that you pay real-world money for are gambling. Actual gambling. They should be regulated, absolutely, and I'm glad to see the British government acknowledging it (even if it is the lower house of parliament).
  14. Not everybody who dislikes this game is garbage, but everybody who is garbage probably dislikes this game
  15. Final Fantasy VII Remake was always going to be my GOTY unless they royally screwed it up, which they didn't. Seeing these characters brought to life in their proper form- not the crappy interpretatons brought forward by the expanded lore- and the way the world feels so alive made me remember why I loved the original so much. Wasn't sure how to feel about the ending at first but after taking some time to thin on it, I'm intrigued and excited for what will come next. The Last of Us Part II was, at its best, phenomenal though there are some pacing issues and some of the second-half characters could have done with some better development to make it as impactful as ND wanted it to be, but it's still an epic game with a great, challenging narrative. The notion that it "disrespects" fans of the original (which I most certainly am after playing and platting it on PS3 this year) is, to me at least, utterly ridiculous but I guess it's not up to me to tell other people how they should feel. Maybe not as good as the first game but I appreciate what it tried to do and feel it was much more successful at doing so than many others do. Ghost of Tsushima and Cyberpunk 2077 are probably gonna blow my mind too. The first half has been pretty so-so but I think this year will go down as a much better year than last year.
