Recommended Posts

Just try not to venture too far beyond rule 33, otherwise things can take quite a sinister turn.

So how far down the Google rabbit hole do you go before getting the Alexios and Kassandra 'fan art'.

First page if safesearch is off.  I'd imagine.

I've got all the SOR1 & SOR2 characters unlocked, and managed to unlock SOR3 Axel while playing through with my other half just now, his moves are just a tad OP. Punch, punch, punch, grand upper does about 3/4 of a full bar of damage, or kills one of the stronger signals in one go. I dread to think what Shiva will be capable of. Still doesn't quite feel right as regards the defensive specials, though. Too many times I find myself in a situation where I'd usually unleash a special and it won't. Hopefully it'll get patched in. 

Word is that SOR4 DLC is on the way. People are thinking it'll allow you to play as Estel, SOR4 Max & SOR4 Shiva, and give some new story mode content. People are asking for Roo, but the devs don't want to go poking PETA. 

I saw an interesting story saying they wanted to add in Joe Musashi from Shinobi, but Sega wouldn't let them.

I hope Shinobi gets his revenge on Sega

He's a monster. He has all sorts of combos and cancels. His standard grab throw doesn't throw them far so he's able to start a regular punch combo while they're still falling. Then cancel into roundhouse kick. Then cancel into Final Crash...

Anybody fucked around with Predator Hunting Grounds? It's not really my cup of tea and the reviews aren't great but the news that Arnold has voiced Dutch for the dlc has me tempted.

Arnie could offer to come round my house and suck me off and I still wouldn’t buy Predator Hunting Grounds. If not because the game is awful, then because the developers are a joke.

Managed my first S grade on SOR4 with SOR1 Axel, who simply packs a punch. Can't get on with Floyd unfortunately. What's everyone's go to character? 

Any tips for smashing the first boss would be helpful, I'm floundering on a B grade for that one.

I read about the rumoured content, fingers crossed it materialises.

Just a heads up NBA 2K20 is currently at £3.99 on the PS store & I believe it’s even cheaper on XBOX.

Cheers, picked it up for too fiddy or there abouts!

I salute those of you who rinse Streets of Rage 4. As much as I love it I've not gone back to it after the first few bashes. It's one of those games where I'll fill up on the lovely backdrops and the score and then just stop. I can't get pass button mashing the shit out of it, so any apparent nuances to the combat are mostly lost on me. 

We've all got our repetitions, and on that note I'm having the best fun ever playing through the Master Chief collection on Steam. I feel like it's about the sixth time I've had the best fun ever playing through the Halo games. They've not aged a day to me. If anything they've gotten better. The original - revolutionary at the time - seems perfectly fresh now in an age of the more stylised, gauntlet based, anti realism shooters that came in the wake of years and years of Call of Duty's dominance. The original Halo trilogy ruled the roost before Modern Warfare came on the scene. 

I started with Halo: Reach, which is the newest to get the new lick of paint. I enjoyed it but despite that it's still my least favourite of the main campaigns, even though it was meant to be Bungie's huge swan song to their development of the franchise. No halo rings, no Master Chief, no camp hoo-rah just loads of that "We've put huge effort into ensuring you empathise with your marine squad in this game" type schtick, meaning you'll have no fucking idea who anyone is, what's going on or even who you're playing as. Noble Six is a shite protagonist. Awkwardly balanced between the original Master Chief and proper say nowt characters like Doomguy and Claude from GTA III. "But it means you're the hero" I'm assuming the advertising at the time went. 

Just finished the original Halo. Reach got me as excited as balls for it. It still stands up. I actually went back to the original graphics for the outdoor levels set on Halo, such was the nostalgia. They still look more ominous with the old Xbox graphics, which are perfectly serviceable properly configured to HD resolutions. 

Halo 2 is next. Halo 2's the best one. It's Halo's version of Metal Gear Solid 2. It's confusing, weird, your hero's experience is robbed and you spend most of the story playing as a creepy fucker you're not used to. Everyone balked on it at the time, now they're all doing retrospectives on how good it is. 

I love Halo.

Finished Horizon Zero Dawn after taking a 2 year break from it for some reason (I think I needed to uninstall stuff for other games so off it went)

Really enjoyed it, but it suffers from the same thing I hate in most other openworld games - when you open the map it's just overwhelming the stuff you can do. I basically just ignored everything and did the main questline (I was level 48 by the end of the game and the level rating thing said you only needed to be about 28 for the last mission). 

I find this in a lot of openworld games too. I'm playing Arkham Knight at the moment and this is one of my big problems with it. Everywhere I go there is a riot or a fight I need to stop, or I hear some survelliance from criminals that I need to stop. It just feels like a massive list of things that are dragging me away from the main game.

I mostly play linear platformers now, I find a lot of modern games just overwhelming in scale.
