    Pre-download has started. I'm so fucking hyped
  2. Returnal (30th April 2021)

    One more week to go...
  3. Hades (PC, Switch)

    There's a new rogue-lite in town and it's bloody incredible. Trust me, I've played it for 30 minutes. I've barely scratched the surface but there's already so much to see and experience. I'm currently on my second escape attempt, meaning I've died once (spikes...immediately after I was victorious against a mini-boss). Looks like story progress comes mostly from interactions with others after you meet your demise. As is standard with Supergiant Games, the voice acting is great. It's also a gorgeous game. There's so much polish everywhere. And the soundtrack...a banger. Managed to beat what I assume is the first real boss (there was a big life bar at the top of the screen, the sign of a boss). It was a tough fight. Had to rely on "death defiance", the first permanent upgrade I acquired. It brought me back to life with half my HP. Can only be used once per run (at least for now), so I gotta be more careful now. Will this become my new "hey, you gotta buy this"-game? Probably. By the way, you need to buy Crypt of the Necrodancer and Slay the Spire.
  4. Biomutant (PS4/XB1/PC)

    From its Steam page: Looks great. Can't wait to see more.
  5. So...will he reprise the role? Will there be a new guy? Will they use the original voice over work?

    Been taking a peek at written previews for a while now... Next week can't come soon enough
  7. Outer Wilds

    Yeah, the thought of trying that crossed my mind, too, at one point. Will do it once I've finished the game

    I have not. Only got two trophies: Dying in 60 seconds and using Oxygen for fuel Did some more exploration inside Dark Bramble... So...not a lot of progress tonight. There are still some areas marked with "There is more to explore here" on my ship's log. I should probably go back and try to find some new information. Knowing myself, however, I'll most likely go back to Dark Bramble, check for some other signals and try to not die.

    Oh, I always do. But sometimes I don't wanna fly 20km to a planet manually. So I engage the autopilot, grab my phone and take a nice, hot plasma bath in the sun 'cause the autopilot thinks "LOL, I'll show him".
  10. Outer Wilds

    Some members there remind me of a few lines in System of a Down's banger track Cigaro. "My cock is much bigger than yours My cock can walk right through the door" Aaaanyway, the sand has risen, I learned something new but I have no idea how to use that information. Which holds true for a lot of new stuff I learned in recent loops. Outer Wilds has the right amount of creepiness for me. Some mild jump-scares (probably nothing for most people, but for me it's more than enough ) and an overall eerie and slightly threatening atmosphere. Only two things annoy me: There are quite a few technical hiccups, i.e. frame drops. They can take you out of the moment which sucks big time in a game like this. And the autopilot...man, it do be dumb at times Made me crash into the sun while navigating to a planet...at least I got a trophy out of it (die within 60 seconds of a new loop).

    I'm just here to wait for the sand to rise. And to avoid the Game Pass thread.
  12. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    Man, those are some sweet animations Really cool advert.
  13. Virtua Fighter x eSports

    I wonder why.
  14. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    As a freeloader who siphons Netflix and other streaming services from my sister, this Video Pass probably won't do much for me But having anime streaming services on it would be great. Anyway, if this rumour/speculation is true, PS+ increases even more in value. I doubt this'll be Sony's last PS+ "change"/addition.
  15. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Now available
  16. Outer Wilds

    I'm a bit at a loss for what to do/where to go next. Which is why I decided to take a closer look at the Sun. Obviously Landed on a "twin planet" near it: I know I keep gushing, but I gotta say it again: This game is something else. Never have I felt this particular sense of progression. The "EXP" you get is knowledge. Literal knowledge about the mysteries, species, universe, etc. And you actually get to use that knowledge for more meaningful progression. It's beautiful. Special shout-out to the OST. Very atmospheric. I should go to bed, but...one more loop doesn't hurt, right?
  17. Outer Wilds

    What a game this is...
  18. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    It really is very impressive Would love to know some actual figures, though. Isn't there some kind of fiscal year end approaching, and don't companies usually share numbers then? I'm no good with dates/things like that
  19. Football Season 2020-21

    Well, you shouldn't look for good points in social media
  20. Football Season 2020-21

    These clubs will most likely hugely benefit financially from this league, in turn making them even more able to spend for high value players. The gap between those teams and "smaller" teams will get larger and that would mean boring national leagues (unless teams from the Super League will not play there). Then there's things like players' health (more matches mean higher risk of injury and also more "wear and tear") and a more expensive hobby/passion for fans (more matches to watch/travel to).

    Vettel can't catch a break...

    How have I not play this game before? It's an absolute marvel. Giant's Deep actually made me nervous for a moment. Something I rarely get with video games. Right now, after 3 or 4 loops, I don't have a real goal. I'm just exploring while following a few rumours from the ship's log and I love it. So many little details already make me wonder what's going on in this universe. Its history is so intriguing. Can't wait to figure out more. Also: Those Quantum Shards never cease to amaze me There's something beautiful in the way Outer Wilds uses death to make you explore more. It's so simple and subtle, yet genius: The first time you die you realize that this isn't actually the end. Which in turn makes you take risks just for the sake of acquiring new information. Giant's Deep is a perfect example.
  23. Outer Wilds

    Started playing the game just now. 30fps suck, but hey, it's a small price to pay for a game that's supposed to be great My first few minutes have been quite intriguing. The game manages to set the stage very well. There's an immediate sense of mystery that's also surprisingly and weirdly terrifying. I'm gonna probably keep writing in here, depending on how much I enjoy Outer Wilds. So far so good.
