  1. N-E Cafe Podcast

    Aonuma sharing a bit of Monolith Soft's development on BOTW
  2. Stormdivers

    While we're wishing for things, I'll take Media Molecule partnering with Nintendo too please! Tearaway is still one of my favourite games, criminal how badly it sold.
  3. Horizon: Zero Dawn

    Feel free, just some random thoughts of mine. They're very different games but they came out within a week of each other and are both bow-wielding openworld action adventures where your goal is to tame the wild. Comparisons were always going to be made. But yeah obviously one emphasises combat and narrative, the other is more about exploration, sandbox systems and puzzle solving. I personally think one added a lot more to the industry as a whole, and that's why BOTW is so widely praised, but Horizon definitely presents a polished "traditional" openworld game. I can't wait for the sequel.
  4. Horizon: Zero Dawn

    It's one of those games that I really enjoyed at the time, maybe even loved, but it just hasn't stuck with me long-term. Once the storyline finally got going it was pretty interesting though and the combat was fantastic. I just didn't really care about exploring the openworld much for whatever reason, it all felt a bit devoid of personality and flavour. The big difference between the two games for me is Horizon felt like the culmination and refinement of the usual openworld formula we'd all seen, a "Best of" what's come before, whereas Breath of the Wild felt like a ground-breaking evolution of it. In twenty or thirty years people will still be talking about Breath of the Wild the way they talk about Mario 64 or Ocarina of Time, whereas I'm not sure the same will be true of Horizon. I'm looking forward to the sequel though, if Sony are smart/able they'll make it a PS5 launch title.
  5. Xbox One Console Discussion

    I love the guys at Kinda Funny, give me their insight into the games industry over most others tbh. Tim especially has improved 10 fold these past few years, he speaks really well now. Getting Imraan from Game Informer was a big win for them too, the guy seriously knows his stuff, even if it's only a temporary hire. Also it was (another new hire) Blessing who requested they restart their Playstation podcast. If they were just coasting and chasing numbers they wouldn't keep getting new people in. They've also bought a new studio space that's like 10x the size of their current one, so as a production it's definitely on the up. And frankly, I just like that they prefer to celebrate games, not destroy them with endless negative click-chasing, ad revenue led rants every couple of weeks like certain other big gaming YouTubers.
  6. The Star Wars Thread

    He might get Star Wars but his The Gunslinger episode of Mandalorian was pretty rough and badly written, so plenty to learn live action wise I think. Big fan though and obviously he does fantastic work. I think the prequels have soured me on the whole Clone Wars era so I haven't really gotten into the series at all, not even seen one episode. I am looking forward to the last 4-5 episodes of Resistance though, the last couple I've seen in particular have been brilliant. Pleased for people are excited about season 7 though. Glad they're now able to finish the story properly.

  8. General Switch Discussion

    If anyone visits Tokyo, bring A LOT of spending money...
  9. Star Trek Masturbatathon

    That split second shot of the Enterprise D looks TERRIBLE. I'm going to assume (hope) it's just for this trailer. Then again it wouldn't surprise me if John Eaves has ruined yet another starship design. I seriously hope not. Personally I'd be fine with Discovery never airing another episode. At least until they replace Burnham and pretty much the whole cast with likeable characters, and all the writers for... well, competent ones.
  10. Virtual Reality

    Release dates for all games are to be ignored from now on I think, until the game is weeks away.
  11. General Switch Discussion

    Some NPD news for December and 2019, as usual digital Switch sales aren't included in these... Great to see Luigi's Mansion 3 do so well. The original sold 3.3million, 3DS sequel sold 6.16 and 3 is guaranteed to sell at least 10 million. Also wild to see Ring Fit Adventure in the Top 20 for December.
  12. You don't even have to do them. Go straight to Hyrule Castle if you want. Just explore and eventually you'll stumble on a pathway to a divine beast but you can do it whenever you want.
  13. If you only have 5 hearts I'd recommend doing more shrines before continuing the main quest and getting a few heart containers. You might struggle with some of the divine beast bosses But yeah, making your own own way and making up the rules as you go along is the beauty of the game. It's not trying to be linear. Have your own adventure in whatever way you want.
  14. Cyberpunk 2077 — 17th September 2020

    Personally, I'm very pleased with this news. This game could be something special, rushing it out broken is in no one's interest. Let them take all the time they need. Also, I was debating whether to delay playing it till the next gen consoles, but figured I wouldn't as 6 months was a long time to not be part of the conversation. This will make it much easier.
  15. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    FFS, I was joking.
