  1. And that is God of War done and dusted (story-wise anyway).  Easily my favorite game of 2018 so far, and we've still got many months of 2018 to go.

    Spoiler

    I agree with others, once you got the Blades of Chaos, it became a little samey.  With the Axe, at least the combat was varied enough and you had to consider your next move.  The final battle was easily one of the best moments in gaming i've seen in a long time.

     


  2. Ouch.  I still can't get over the hold-up with RoTTR on PS4.  And it seems with this, Square still have not learned.  There's plenty of games coming from September onwards, i can wait for a cheaper edition down the line.  Should have announced the season pass around launch, gives an impression that content was not ripped from the game to be sold back to us.


  3. Beyond Two Souls, nice addtion.  Already own Rayman through the Ubisoft giving away the first part of the Unity DLC after the monumental errors with the game (was my compensation as i owned the season pass).  The other titles, i'll check out down the line.


  4. Started the day on 220 Magikarp candy, by the time i got to work i have over 400 candy (and a shiny Karp too).  Just need to get to the mission to evolve Magikarp now, but this is good.  Up to 14 candy per capture, which is great.  Only need to see some Doduo now and (bar the region exclusive Tauros and legendary birds/Mew and Mewtwo) the Kanto dex is done.


  5. I'm not sure what to think with one of these matches

    Spoiler

    Braun Strowman and a kid called Nicolas (honestly, plucked from the audience and he's about 11 or 12) are the new RAW Tag Team Champions.  I was in fits of laughter, not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing.

    Ronda can wrestle quite well, nice to see her win (surprised Trips and his ego allowed it)

    Lesnar vs Reigns.  Result wasn't as expected, but Reigns got busted up good and proper from a forearm.  Seems Brock isn't going back to UFC and has signed on again with the WWE (sigh!!!).  So who knows how long this reign as a part-timer is going to last.

     


  6. Thank god they didn't say Wailmer, that beast needs 400 candies and i hardly see that around.  My next Magikarp is over 200 candies, and i plan to walk it once i've evolved Chansey into Blissey (2 candies away, or less than 10k walking)


  7. Releasing a PS5 in 2018 doesn't seem logical, heck even 2019 doesn't seem logical.  I'm reckoning 2020 at the earliest for a PS5, probably being announced late this year or next year.  And if the dev kits have been sent out now this year, it'll take a while for anything to be even remotely playable.


  8. Another issue, again it's with the Swansea office.  Clearly they don't appreciate me and keep passing on work they don't want to do (aka the crud), and there is this one person in the office who clearly doesn't like how i do work and sends consistent feedback to my manager.  It's got to the point now where i am actually scared to do any work at all, just in case this person sends feedback (by the way, all the feedback is purely nitpicking).  I'm actually being bought up in an official meeting next week to discuss the situation.  And i just can't be bothered with it, in fact i just can't be bothered with coming into the office anymore.

    My manager is aware of the entire situation, but has to do things officially on record.  I'm borderline about to have a breakdown and no-one seems to give a crap.  I reported the person in who is blatantly targeting me (i'm told this person checks everyone elses work, but it's obvious they don't based on the errors even i see (heck Stevie Wonder could see the errors on some of these cases)).  I just got off the warning system, just looking for new work as i'm now able to do so.  And this comes my way again.


  9. No Man's Sky improved a lot over the year or two it's been out with all the free content, hopefully Rare do something similar with content for this game.  Otherwise it'll be heading for Davy Jones's Locker sooner rather than later.

    They had to take the servers offline yesterday due to the flood of people, i guess they didn't consider those getting the game on the Xbox Gamepass with these numbers adding to those who pre-ordered.

  10. We're going through the arguments in work today with if we have to take annual leave or if they'll accept special leave, after the office was closed Thursday/Friday last week due to the snow.  Most people are not happy with being told you have to use 2 days annual leave, seeing as they were out of the office because of a management decision to close.


  11. I'm all for organ donation, and the "everyone is signed up unless they choose not to" idea.  I'm a organ doner myself, signed up at the earliest chance i could as i believe it's a great thing.  I mean, when i'm gone i'm not likely to need the organs anymore.  As long as they work still.


  12. Yesterday, it showed all the trains to and from Cardiff to where i live were cancelled.  So i called up and explained this, however i noticed 1 was going around 12pm.  Called the emergency works number and they advised the building is closed and is likely to be closed tomorrow, but i have to call up to check.


  13. The snow today gave me the perfect opportunity to finish up.  What can i say, it's certainly a unique experience to say the least.  Some of the colossi were challenging at times, and each was unique to tackle and take down.  Camera was awkward at times, but other than that i enjoyed this game.

    I can certainly see why people praise this game that's for sure

    How far into it are you?

    Have played it for 30 minutes and was bored senseless.

    I'm about 1/2 way through the 3rd chapter, and now i feel this is getting like a chore.
