WHAT PLAY YOU!? Version 2.0


Recommended Posts

Yakuza 2 was a big jump in quality from the first game from what I recall, so can understand that it has it's fans. Shame the Kiryu becomes a host side story didn't make Kiwami 2.

The studio has built up enough good will for me to give the next game a fair shake. It'll either do really well and they'll carry on in the new direction or it'll fail hard and they'll go back to what works imo.

Judgment is a really slow burn even by Yakuza standards.

I’ve pre-ordered Animal Crossing New Horizons on Switch, and my wife has converted a combination of Nectar Points, Argos Gift cards and a 10% eBay code into a Switch Lite, ready for the game’s release next month.

Whilst I’m looking forward to the game, Nintendo are being right dicks about how the game works and how it can be played.

You can only have 1 island per console, so if you have two or more profiles on the same unit, they can’t each have their own save game.

It also won’t support cloud saves, and there’s no way to either backup your save or transfer it to another console. I have an original Switch and a Lite, so I won’t be able to play it on both which seems a bit unfair and if I lose my console or it breaks, my save will be gone.

No real point to this, other than to have a moan really.

Finished Bioshock today - I had played it before up until the point you got telekenisis then had put it down, but when the remastered came free as PS+, I figured why not? I really enjoyed it - I had conflated Bioshock and Bioshock 2's plot as I thought you became a

Big Daddy fully

during Bioshock but apparently that's to do with Bioshock 2. 

 

I also finally defeated the final boss on Dead Cells for the first time, and beat the Heart on Slay the Spire. I enjoy roguelikes but I can't ever see me doing them on a higher level!

I don't bother playing for the heart when I play Slay the Spire but I am enjoying going up through the ranks of the Ascension levels. I can't imagine ever beating the Heart on some of the higher levels but getting to the end of the 3rd act is a fun enough challenge for me to keep going with it.

I turned right back down to the lowest level with the Ironclad to do it, and even then it was frustrating. I'm not likely going to try again now I've done it. 

 

I'm slowly making my way through the Ascension - I'm up to level 16 with Ironclad, 7 with Silent, 9 with Defect and 3 with Watcher.

 

Defect's my favourite class to play but I keep dying on Act 3 with it.

I really like the Watcher, but most of my gaming is on the Switch so I don't get to play with her very often as the big patch hasn't hit console yet. With the other three I'm not that far ahead of you - 17, 13, 11 respectively. I really love a really good, focused 0 cost Defect combo deck. I think it's the most satisfying deck for me when it all comes together.

Ugh, I didn’t know any of this. That’s really annoying, this is a rarity in that it’s the kind of game that both my wife and I might actually want to play. I hope they patch out these knobbish restrictions.

The one island per console restriction is apparently due to how the game is saved. It's all saved to the console, rather than a memory card or kept on the cartridge like in previous titles, I presume because it's easier to work it that way. it still supports a character for each profile on the console (up to 😎and you can have 4 players simultaneously. I'm just glad we'll be getting a proper Animal Crossing game rather than that Amiibo board game they put out on Wii U. 

I obviously mean an 8 and then), not a smiley face. Bloody hell.

Just went back to Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes as a means of shaking myself out of the PES hole that I've been in for ages.

Such a good game. Didn't get the recognition that Pyre would get a few years later despite being very similar and almost as good.

I'm probably gonna rinse this and then Pyre.

So I finished hitman 2 last week and I really really enjoyed every single minute of that game. My major grievance was my surprise when I got to the 3rd to last mission which was the bank and completed it then the post mission video sequence played and then the credits rolled.....I was obviously confused because I knew there were 2 levels after it and the video played out more of the story then I found out in order to complete the game you had to pay an extra 20 quid to purchase the expansion pack which included the final 2 missions and some extra content.....

How can gaming companies justify charging people extra money in order to unlock the rest of the game, I completely understand paying for extra levels or whatever but paying more just to be able to finish the standard story really did piss me off. When you factor in the fact that brand new games cost around 60 quid these days to then slap on another 39 pounds which is what the expansion pack actually costs I just got it on a sale your charging people 100 pounds for a full game that's absolutely insane.

They usually claim it's "due to the cost of making the game" 

Then they sell you a season pass so you can have all the content for one lower price to look like they're doing you a favour. Jim Sterling (thank God for him) has done so many Jimquisitions about this they all become a blur.

Hadn't Hitman gone episodic for number 2? I doubt IO Interactive are creaming off millions from the franchise but at the same time you'd like to think the base game had the entirety of the story and any further additions were building on that.

Ol' Jim really has shone a big light on game companies and their dastardly ways. Every month there seems to be some other 'reputable' company trying to grab more money for content that would've come packaged with the original game only a few years ago. That or they're sneaking in gambling mechanics and working their workforce to death before letting them go whilst simultaneously announcing record profits.

It kinda puts the "Game prices have stayed consistent through the years" argument to task.

Thank God for him.

It's a clever strategyinthat you can hold off longer on increasing the price of a game by carving swathes of content out of the game to sell back later and try to recoup the difference. Some of the blame has to lay at the feet of the likes of Street Fighter 4 with the costume packs,and the othercosmetics. As soon as these were normalised companies started looking for other ways to further monetise stuff in their games.
