  1. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    GF spilt water on my PS4 so the disk drive it broke D: Considering replacing it with a pro but tbh I'm really struggling to actually see any palpable difference when I watch gameplay comparisons on youtube. Seems like the biggest case of emporer's new clothes ever. Or is it that you only can really tell the difference when it's on a TV? Has anyone here upgraded, and is it worth it? thanks?

    Wipeout collection is sososo dope on psvr!
  3. Thanks alot!! Gotta get started on the next one!
  4. Thanks alot man! Good to hear
  5. Thanks very much man! Glad you enjoyed it. The music is all from youtube's audio library - so those tracks are probably on a tonne of other videos! Using music from elsewhere seems to be a legal minefield so didn't seem worth the risk Thanks very much! Yeah it took a while, to edit I was keen to make it fairly high production value-y. I did the editing in Premiere, and the graphics and animation bits in After Effects. Bit of a faff going between the two but all ultimately a fairly enjoyable process
  6. Hey pals, I made a video essay.. thing.. about pixel art in recent games and why it's so eternally popular (Celeste, Hyper Light Drifter, Octopath Traveller et all) It would be great to get some feedback from you lot in case I get round to ever making another one Sorry, hope this isn't not too self-promotiony - you can all put a voice to my posts here in any case!
  7. Football Season 2018/19

    Called it!! That shit was fucking crazy. Might've eclipsed the quarter final second leg against City. Right on par with last night. I literally cannot believe it. Can't believe how done for we looked after half an hour in the first leg. Can't believe how bringing on Llorente turned the game on it's head completely, Ajax could not deal with him. Can't believe Moura's third, the timing of it, the ridiculousness of the angle he had to completely perfect between two Ajax players, the keeper, the post. Can't believe we, Spurs, are in the champions league final. Bloody hell. Just an incredible incredible season for football. Nothing brings emotions out like this game. Jesus christ.

  9. Game of Thrones

    Yeah kind of agree with the above. There's also a distinct chance that all of the white walker storyline will be wrapped up next week - what an anticlimax that would be after a seven season buildup! Hoping the white walkers crush it and the rest of the series will be one long sprawl of escape and death. Thought this week's eppy was terrific though. Reminded me why I love the show, after the tepid opener. Reminded me of the bit in Witcher 3 before the battle at Kaer Moren where you're getting smashed with the other main characters. Excellently written, some great lines amidst some touching moments. Loved it.
  10. Football Season 2018/19

    Just about calmed down by now, 24 hours after the fact.. Just an unbelievable, preposterous game. For sheer drama I think it might actually be the best match I've ever watched, compounded by the fact that I was sat in the quiet carriage of the train from London to Edinburgh watching on the spotty wifi, trying not go absolutely fucking mental when goals went in or VAR intervened. Those mental first 10 minutes, us crumbling to pieces when Sissoko went off, Llorente bundling it in against the run of play, De Bruyne and Sterling playing brilliantly, Wanyama leathering it out of play in the last ten, utter deflation when Sterling scored, and the incredible drama of the VAR decision.. incredible night. As someone on reddit put it - imagine not being a fan of football!
  11. Personally I'm totally torn. Have to admit a massive grin came over my face looking at the first couple of shots of gameplay, and when the amazing woodwind music started playing, but upon reflection it's the same style that put me off playing a Link Between Worlds. Just wish they'd try something different for a change. I'd love to see really detailed handrawn-y sprites, much like the Banner Saga or Hades, something still pixel-y like Hyper Light Drifter or even something a bit darker and more unusual like Below. Four Swords on the gamecube seemed to be going that way with those amazing cel animated explosion swirls like from Wind Waker. Would've loved if they followed the handrawn route! Still. Psyched to play it. I played through some of LA on my phone last year. That game holds up!
  12. God of War (PS4)

    Ah no, wasn't sure if I'd be able to do more exploring if I go home or if that cuts it off?
  13. God of War (PS4)

    Yeah definitely, there was a few times with bosses where I was only getting about 20% of their health off before dieing, before I changed up my tactics and got through it, definitely a sign of a game that's not just a button masher! And yeah agreed on the interactions - having Mimir around was a good narrative choice too. Not sure if this has been posted but this video's a really good watch on how they make the combat feel so satisfying Finished it, fiinally, the other day. Is there some sort of true ending? I got credits coming up over the gameplay but only a couple screens, so not sure if I need to go to the other realms and the valykries or whatnot?
  14. Apex Legends

    Rather enjoying this, mad how quickly people get stupidly good at these games though, always the champions it flags up at the start of games have hundreds of kills already. Only thing I don't love about BR games for me is getting munched by people who put tens of hours in every week. Surprised this / fortnite / pugb don't do ranked games now the playerbases are so massive. Definitely a really cool game though, great effort by Respawn on well everything runs when you're in a game. I kind of miss the more chilled out looting at the start of Fortnite / Pubg with their bigger maps, quite nice when you're catching up with friends on PSN. But it has a really nice pace and feel to it. Who's everyones legend of choice?
