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.

Played some Mortal Kombat 11 story mode this morning, it’s safe to say Ronda Rousey who voices Sonya Blade gives some of the worst voice acting since Resident Evil I’ve ever heard.

BoTW however, is now my favourite Zelda game ever - I’m still playing it. Actually, it’s probably my favourite game ever.

I got this for my birthday earlier this month and me and my 7yo son have been having loads of fun with it. Sometimes it does feel a bit samey when most of the monsters and their camps are very similar, but it's still fantastic so far. Needs more caves though.

I LOVE the climbing ability and the fact that you can climb pretty much anything- stamina permitting. Much better than the classic zigzag running up steep heels you get in Bethesda and Rockstar games. The fact that most weapons break easily, meaning you always have to be on the lookout for something new, is a nice touch too.

Just done the first divine beast mission, the elephant one. Are there 'proper dungeons' later on in the game, ala OOT and Twilight Princess? It'd be a shame if these Divine Beast levels are the dungeon equivalents.

Got a handy tip on the climbing and stamina thing in regards to the order in which you do the divine beasts. I'll spoiler tag it

 

the Van Medoh  divine beast will help you massively with exploration and climbing, I did it last but it's definitely the one you shoukd do first.

The beasts are pretty much the dungeons along with the 100 plus shrines as mini dungeons. I don't personally think the game suffers from that. 

It's an amazing game and I played this, RDR2, GoW and finished off GTA 5 over a six month period and I'm seriously struggling to find a new game. I've got Witcher 3 ready to install but can't summon the motivation. Think I'll wait and see what the Days Gone reviews come out like then jump on to that.

I’ve just started RDR2. I’m through the winter prologue and just about to start the game proper. Any non-spoiler tips and tricks you think would be worth knowing before getting stuck in?

Pay your bounties off as you go if you fancy a quiet life.

@Mr_Danger nice one, cheers for that. I've already done one, so I'll head for the one you suggested next.

Definitely give Witcher 3 a go, I think you'll really like it. The characters are excellent and it's far more humorous than similar games. Maybe give it a while though first if you've invested so much time and emotion in the other games you mentioned. It's like an adult Zelda game, in pretty much every sense (TITS!)
