WHAT PLAY YOU!? Version 2.0

Recommended Posts

I had similar trouble with Game Pass last year (service suddenly stopped working even though I was still signed up) and support sorted it out really quick.

Best get them on the phone. Especially if you think you have been billed twice.

Could be the card provider blocked payment during the renewal process, for some reason. But that's just a wild guess.

Picked up a beat 'em up called Raging Justice on PS4 yesterday. It's down to £3.99 from about a tenner in  the sale. The idea behind it and some of the mechanics are good,but the execution is a bit lacking. There's a thing where the bad guys (the fodder ones, not the bosses) have a little stun meter and if you build it up, usually by grabbing them and giving them a couple of slaps in the grapple you can arrest them by grabbing them when they're stunned and they'll drop some health or, if they're a "warrant" character with a red flashing outline, an extra life. The problem is that the game will force you into situations where you're facing so many guys you sometimes find yourself low in health, but unable to arrest anybody for other people hitting you when you're trying to make the arrest that you have no alternative but to knock everybody out. The special is a two button thing,and it doesn't look as though you can map it to a shoulder button either, which can be awkward. The most frustrating things so far have been that one of the bosses has this spinning attack that's invincible and apparently unavoidable as it seems to home in on you. Another has a move you can jump to avoid, but if you don't it knocks you down and they then get chance to chain this attack in such a fashion as it lands and knocks you back down as soon as you get up. You can get stuck in some ridiculous stun locks. It may be better if you've got a mate to play along with as alone it feels like there are too many enemies onscreen sometimes. It's nice that.they can hit each other sometimes, but again it can bugger your arrests up if an enemy does an area of effect move or throws a weapon and kills the person you're relying on for a health boost/extra life. There's a "horde" type mode where you fight waves of enemies as well. It does that thing where weaker versions of bosses turn up on subsequent levels as well, but sometimes you'll end up with 4 of them on screen at once, and it can be a real chore to get rid of them as they still have a fair bit of health and it gets awfully crowded.

It's got a nice digitised graphical style as well, more Clayfighter than Mortal Kombat, but nice graphics nonetheless. It's not a bad game for the price, but I'd probably recommend it more if you're properly into your beat 'em ups.

Just watched the Nintendo Direct for April. If they really wanted to fuck with my emotions they'd have announced a full Ocarina of Time remake in the BotW engine.

Eh? The April Nintendo Direct doesn't happen until Wednesday, does it?

I'll not lie, I was only half watching but the penny dropped after RDR2 popped up.
