  1. Elden Ring (25th February 2022)

    Cant wait but no major rush here as I am overwhelmed with so many games right now. Destiny, Horizon, Gran Turismo, backlog etc. What a crazy February/March.
  2. I finished the story quicker due to Destiny Witch Queen's release. Progreession focus is necessary for many weapons, abiltiies and: This game had some great Human/Earth themes and serious technology discussion (Turing test, AI ethics etc.) despite having animal and dinosaur robots! Looks like there is some continuation after the story too! Absolutely loved the game and one of my all time favourites. Well done to the team at Guerilla!
  3. Might be due to the weather yesterday. Yeah blown away here. Keep going, There is so much more to do this time round. So many great characters and locations. I feel open world RPG could also fit this game's description. IMO dont waste too much time in the first open area. Get to the Forbidden West! Nothing wrong with the first open area but its like a small taster compared to later. You have plenty of back and forth travel anyway.
  4. Really enjoying it. Have to say that was a very weak and slow start. The linear part was torture for me. Felt nothing like where we left the last game. Luckily once the game goes open world it just accelerates! The first actual Forbidden West area (several hours later) is really special. It's firing on all cylinders right now. Cant wait to back in.
  5. This is probably good as it will get for a hybrid game like this. Interesting reviewers are calling it an open world game. I've platinumed it and always thought of it as an Action RPG first. Should point a ton of reviews are freely spoiling really major locations and story points.
  6. Amazing for a new IP. The first game was truly special and has aged really well. Must have on PS4/5/PC
  7. Gran Turismo 7 (4th March 2022)

    Cant wait. Way overdue for a numbered GT. I assume this is the sort of independence Bungie will have Can see car tickets are back. Keen to see how much Online RPG the game is now after GT5/6, which had early elements of many online games now.
  8. The first game is still insane looking. Looks nicer than the PS5 version of Assassin's Creed Valhalla. I loved the locations, characters, story, music everything. Will be fun to see where everyone ended up from the first game. Some characters already shown in trailers.
  9. Agreed. Sorry was thinking more value wise as a content maker/seller in an entertainment industry. It's ultimately about games and they have the highest value portfolio by far. EA, Sony etc. dont come close.
  10. Interesting there is so much focus on exclusives (Not a big deal in the larger scheme of things) rather than how much control/power MS gain in the industry. This makes them by 'far' the biggest game publisher/developer. A size we havent had before and they can still buy more, never mind the guaranteed growth they now have. We have anti-competition and anti-trust experts asking: What exactly constitutes a no for MS?
  11. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    Got mine launch day through a John Lewis preorder. My impressions are positive all round. Much stronger launch than the PS4. Loving the speed of everything. The UI is excellent so far. Getting used to the newness and testing stuff out. Some stuff like HDR auto on/off and media playback need work but its working well. UHD disks do not play in HDR yet but video quality is looking like it will rival dedicated players. External storage works absolutely fine and I am using the ethernet connection in my case. No issues noted. Its like a PS4 Pro+ with PS4 games. Loading is the same as PS4 Pro with a SSD. You have access to some PS5 upgrades/versions with some games. Everything PS4 works! I do have some buzz noise at times which I assume is coil whine. System is quiet though. No crashes here.
  12. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2020-11-06-playstation-5-critical-consensus Excellent reviews/impressions for the PS5. Still I am awaiting afew more game reviews and impressions from the launch lineup. Didnt realise, but looks like Microsoft released their new consoles with zero ground up next gen games. That inbuilt WD SSD is also way below the 'spec' they were touting.

    Cant wait. Would be a great way to end this year! With Covid we need stuff to keep ourselves sane.
