I had three missed calls in three minutes from my 60 year old father a few years ago. He never calls so thought something awful had happened. I phoned back, and he answered with “Thanks for calling ba

Excuse my indulgence for a minute. This is more WHAT PLAY HER but my daughter has become a complete Minecraft convert this year. Blocks away for at least 30 mins a day. She has about a dozen worlds on

I’ve mentioned this before but my Dad is obsessed with the farming game, he’s got 500+hour saves on each game since 2015. He’s so protective over it as well, the Grandkids aren’t allowed anywhere near

Wasn't for me either, I'm not a fan of stealth games, so the mediocre stealth mechanic just put me right off. Can't even really remember how far I got but it wasn't far. Pretty sure even the best movie in the world would be fairly hard to connect with if they repeated 5 minute chunks of the film 20-30 times before letting you move on.

I finally got Hitman 2016 and am I alone in thinking that the levels are a bit too big? I get that they really wanted to push the sandbox nature with the reboot but I'm not sure I like it, I've never been a fan of being dumped somewhere and left completely alone to do as I want, I like a little bit of a push in the right direction.

I feel like Blood Money got the balance just right.

Got sea of thieves on game pass free earlier and played with a few mates. It's a terrible game, I'd be angry if I paid for it and I would never play it on my own.. But with friends it was fucking hilarious and some of the most fun I've had gaming in a while.

In retrospect it might not be considered too far, im not sure how much was left. If I remember rightly I was just over half way (I think). I'd just completed the prison riot where the sinister 6 are unveiled. Think Doc. Oc. unleashes the virus (what a time to be playing through something like that!). As I've been away from playing games for, as mentioned, about 18 months and never being an absolute pro on consoles anyway... that really is a lot of hard work there!

Thats bang on half way if I remember correctly. I'd give it a break too. You could knock the difficulty right down and catch up fairly quickly but I really enjoyed getting the back backs and side missions.

Keep going Ralphy, I loved Fallout 4. The storyline and characters were far better than Fallout 3 and New Vegas in my opinion. A protagonist having a voice helps massively I think.

You are literally the only person to have ever said that. And that might be the issue Ralphy's having - fans of New Vegas don't get along with 4 because the voice protagonist doesn't allow them to roleplay fully.

So this morning I "finished" Animal Crossing, ie reached the bit where you get to see the credits. Still plenty to do in the game, though. If anybody is getting annoyed by all the bunny day eggs they can be sold for 200 bells each. Easy money for infrastructure, mortgage payments etc. I heard somewhere you only need 62 of each egg to build everything and get a reward.

I've also been playing through Final Fantasy 7. Still in Midgar at the moment. Just rescued Aerith and Red XIII.

I see that side of the argument, but for me I think it doesn't add as much when you can't hear your character. For example, I felt nothing for my character in Skyrim or 'Claude' in GTA3. Tommy Vercetti, CJ, John Marston, Arthur Morgan and the GTA5 trio on the other hand- those characters added so much to the game.

Then again I guess in roleplaying games I don't envision myself as the character.

The having to faff about with the outposts was my main gripe with Fallout 4. It was annoying to get stuff coming up about your outpost when you're wandering the wasteland.

Just ignore them. Fuck Preston, the lazy prick.

If it's not then it's a big plus for Xbox as they already offer upscale on old games and have backwards compatibility all the way back to og Xbox. Part of the selling point on next gen seems to around not having to buy games twice but it's Sony so who knows.

 

I wish this were true but there’s only a tiny percentage of  og and 360 games that are still supported as the XBOne doesn’t have an emulator per se.

I have some games i’d love to play again (Full Spectrum Warrior, Galleon) but they’re not supported.

If the new Xbox genuinely does support all previous consoles that would be huge..

Full Spectrum Warrior works on the XBOne.

Fallout 4's settlement building was a good, fun distraction and yeah it had some lovely set pieces and well curated vistas and moments but it's a shite RPG and a poor Fallout. New Vegas is the best one. Give me its numerous dialogue options and weird setting over the wooden voice acting any day. 

I know the rollback on Bethesda is overdone/we all played 500 hours of Skyrim before going on about how shallow it was/they're clearly going for something with a more easier to jump into, action oriented appeal but New Vegas beats the piss out of 4.
