  1. What Have You Bought?

    Games, games and more games: All the indie/AA games. Keep me going for a couple of weeks. The Forgotten City is fantastic though. If anyone wants a well written time loop game that comes together really well (sorry 12 Minutes but not you) then I can't recommend The Forgotten City enough.
  2. Netflix

    Netflix have been running their TUDUM event and have been showing off various films and shows that they've got coming in the coming months/into next year. We got our first glimpse at the adaptation of The Sandman and I'm tentatively optimistic going off of this first glimpse: Its got the look but whats shown is one of the easier parts to adapt. With Gaiman involved, it should stay true to the source but it could still go wrong if they've not got the budget to cover what they want to properly (from what I gather the first series is supposed to cover Preludes and Nocturnes). So I'm intrigued but the books are probably my favourite graphic novel series so as much as I'm excited by this first glimpse, I'm not sure if it'll all stick the landing, though the casting choices are great.
  3. What song(s) are you really into at the moment?!

    The War On Drugs released their latest track from their new album out at the end of October and its fantastic: I liked Living Proof, the first track off of their new album, and I was already excited for a new album as I'm a big fan of the band (their previous two albums are so good) but this new song really has me hyped for the new album. I love the 80s tinges throughout, the backing vocals by Lucius during the chorus are a lovely touch as well, the general beat is catchy and lyrically its another great solid song by the band. October 29th can't come soon enough as if they keep up that quality, it'll be one of the best of the year.
  4. Xbox Game Pass (Console & PC)

    New Gamepass titles for the remainder of September have been announced: 15th Sept Flynn: Son of Crimson (Console, PC & Cloud) 16th Sept I Am Fish (Console, PC & Cloud) SkateBird (Console, PC & Cloud) Superliminal (Console, PC & Cloud) 17th Sept Aragami 2 (Console, PC & Cloud) 23rd Sept Lost Words: Beyond The Page (Console, PC & Cloud) Sable (Console, PC & Cloud) Subnautica Bellow Zero (Console, PC & Cloud) Tainted Grail (PC) 28th Sept Lemnis Gate (Console & PC) 30th Sept Astria Ascending (Console, PC & Cloud) Unsighted (Console & PC) 1st Oct Phoenix Point (Console) The games leaving on September 30th are: Drake Hollow (Cloud, Console, and PC) Ikenfell (Cloud, Console, and PC) Night in the Woods (Cloud, Console, and PC) Kathy Rain (PC) Warhammer Vermintide II (Cloud and Console) Its a good set of games arriving, with 8 Day 1 releases. I'm sure some will be unhappy about the lack of bigger titles as its mainly indie titles but I'm very happy. So many of these are games that I was intending to play anyway. Intended to pick up Sable but have been more and more curious about Flynn: Son of Crimson and Unsighted looks fantastic. Great month.
  5. Indie Games

    Its another busy week for game releases this week, especially on the indie front. There's Flynn: Son of Crimson (15th), Eastward (16th), and Toem (17th) to name but a few. Its already been a stacked September so far but the games keep coming across all platforms. Especially looking forward to trying out Eastward as I love the pixel art and the music is just hitting that right nostalgic note for me. But Tom looks great as a nice chilled and laidback experience and Flynn: Son of Crimson looks great too. This is ignoring other titles like SkateBird and Tails of Iron (as well as I Am Fish on PC and Xbox). Fantastic month for games across the board, just feel sorry for wallets everywhere.
  6. I watched it for a second time this morning to get a fresh look at what was shown and I think I've come away a rad disappointed that we didn't see more from Sony's first party studios. Hermen Hulst has been on record as saying they've got 25 games in development across PlayStation Studios, half of them new IPs. We saw one here, that being Marvel Wolverine, but I was hoping we'd see a bit more as to what some of those other titles are, even a teaser. Guess they're further down the line than the current slate, which is fine as this generation definitely isn't a sprint, it'll be a marathon as a result of a slower first and second year on the market due to the pandemic slowing things (obviously not in terms of consumer purchasing). The Marvel stuff doesn't do much for me. Never watch an XMen film or Wolverine and while Spiderman and Miles Morales are good, they're quite by the numbers for the type of game they are. God of War Ragnarök looks fantastic though. Can't wait for that next year. GT7, meh, much prefer an arcade racer myself. On the other games, so hyped for the KOTOR remake. I know its years away but its one of my favourite games of all time and I've been going back and watching videos of the original since it was officially announced (there have been rumours about it for the last year) and I can't wait to see what they do with it and whether they incorporate anything from 2 or not. Alan Wake Remastered was leaked prior to the event and I knew it was going to be shown here. Still very happy to see it. Picking that up to play on my PS5 even though I've played through it numerous times. This is also one of the games Remedy has an agreement with Epic for. Theyve currently got 5 games in development in house, this remaster, the single player component of CrossfireX, a co-op multiplayer title, a new game in the Control universe and a 5th game that we don't know about. If I had to hazard a guess, I suspect the multiplayer game is the second game agreed to as part of the Epic agreement. I do suspect that the 5th game is a new Alan Wake title as the AWE expansion for Control reignited desire for a sequel and this remaster will undoubtedly test the waters for it. Liked the look of Project Eve. Tchia looked lovely, sort of like Windbound mixed with the supposedly cancelled Wild so its right up my street. That showing of Forspoken looked great to me, even if it wasn't running the smoothest. Beyond those, couldn't care less about GTA V. Already have it and won't be playing again. Tiny Tina's Wonderland did nothing for me as I've grown tired of the Borderlands formula. Guardians looks ok but again, I'm not overly fussed for all these superhero games (and I haven't seen the movies). Ghostwire Tokyo continues to look a little rough round the edges. It just doesn't look like it'll all come together but I could be wrong there. So yeah, it was a good showing. Would've liked to see more from Playstation Studios but as I say, its a marathon and I'm already swimming in games through the end of this year and there'll be plenty next year to look forward to (Horizon Forbidden West and GoW: Ragnarök). I'm sure we'll see what Pixelopus, Naughty Dog and the like are working on in due course.
  7. Its been confirmed to be a timed console exclusive for the PS5. So hyped. The rumours have dragged on for ages and though I'd have loved to actually see the game, just having it confirmed is enough for me. Its no longer a fantasy, its happening and I can't wait to see and play the game as the original KOTOR is one of my favourite games of all time. They better keep HK-47 just the way he was though those meatbags at Aspyr
  8. What Have You Bought?

    The missus and I had a day away to Glasgow and treated ourselves to a few things. I picked up the following: Poster for The Umbrella Academy. A Super Mario Land cartridge notebook. Saw it and as it was the first game I played on the original Gameboy back in the early 90s I couldn't pass it up. And I picked up this for the missus as her first lego set:
  9. Horizon: Forbidden West (PS5)

    The delay has been officially confirmed during Opening Night Live. Game will launch on both PS4 and PS5 on February 18th 2022. Pre-orders start next week, September 2nd.
  10. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Dishonored 2 is currently £2.39 on the PS Store in the current sale. If you've not played the game then I wholeheartedly recommend picking it up at that price as its a steal for such a fantastic game. There's plenty other games on sale, like Scarlet Nexus for £29.99 (40% off) but consider this a PSA for Dishonored 2. Buy it as its superb.
  11. It was a great showcase. Loop Hero coming later this year, Eastward launching as a timed exclusive on September 16th and Axiom Verge 2 coming out later today (launching on PS4/PS5 and PC later this year as well). Far: Changing Tides looks fantastic as does Garden Story, which is also out today. Really solid showing.
  12. Xbox Series S | X Console Discussion

    Microsoft have announced an Xbox stream for Gamescom, taking place in two weeks time: Got to imagine this'll be where they finally put a date on Halo Infinite. Spencer has more or less said that they're holding on to dodge releasing at the same time as the new Call of Duty title (though that game's release does seem to be up in the air for this year at the moment as rumour is hinting it might slip to next year but again its Activision, they'll happily ship a broken game to market to deflect from whats happening there at the moment). Expecting a late November date for the game. Hopefully we'll get some glimpses of the likes of Hellblade: Senua's Saga and The Gunk. They must have some news to bring to the table for some of their bigger titles so hopefully we'll hear that. This is following on from a new [email protected] stream thats happening on Twitch tomorrow from 5pm focusing on updates and new announcements for indie games as well as new announcements for Gamepass. Won't be watching that stream live. The last one in March dragged on a bit and wasn't a fan of the hosts so will catch up later in the evening so I can skip to the trailers and dev interviews. Hoping for a release date for the new game from Drinkbox, Nobody Saves The World.
  13. Xbox Game Pass (Console & PC)

    The Artful Escape, a game shown previous during a couple of Microsoft's E3 conferences, finally has a release date, with it coming September 9th to Xbox consoles and Gamepass. Theyve also announced some big names doing voice work for the game, namely Lena Headey and Carl Weathers so Annapurna once again helping their deves reach out and get big names to voice their titles.
  14. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    We got a release date for Solar Ash during the Annapurna Interactive Showcase, with the game coming October 26th: Also go the announcement of a new game from Cloisters Interactive during the showcase as well, with it coming soon.
  15. Stray (Early 2022)

    Gameplay for this was shown during the Annapurna Interactive Showcase: Sadly the game won't be out until early 2022 but the game looks great. Really looking forward to it but hopefully it'll find its space in the early period of next year as with Elden Ring launching in January, they'll need to find their own space so as not to get cannibalised.
