WHAT PLAY YOU!? Version 3.0


Recommended Posts

The Tony Hawk 1+2 demo is so perfect. You need to pre-order the game to get it, but I feel like I'm going to be playing two minute Warehouse sessions until it comes out. Exactly what you want has come back.

The event was a massive success! The original target of £100 (we're all small streamers) was thrashed immediately, so we upped it to £200, then £300, then £500. The current amount is £1052.99

It’s such a waste of money (unless you have it) to jump in at launch. The games have been developed with current gen in mind so they don’t really perform any different, the games that are actually ava

I'm playing Death To The Megathread 2020 on the Xbox. I'm stuck on level 4 because it wont let you just cut and paste something and then not post your own personal opinion on anything.

Even after taking @Mr_Danger's advice and just focusing on the Mythic stories and main quests, I'm still finding Ghost of Tsushima a slog. Every journey in between locations you encounter fight after fight.

The game looks great and I like the variety they've put in to the upgrade system. And although the fights themselves are nice to play, repeatedly doing the same thing throughout each mission, and in between missions, is just tedious.

Have you tried just fleeing? It’s pretty easy and all the fights on the road basically either give you a loot and xp boost or a tip off on a poi and xp boost so they’re really not necessary. There also comes a point in act 2 where once you’ve upgraded an armour set you get a perk of a complete kill streak so you get to kill off a hoard of Mongols in one combo with a couple of stragglers left to run off in fear and it’s super satisfying. 
 

Other than that maybe just open up a few fast travel points, the fox dens and all that shite are not good for much else.

 

At the very least persevere until you get the ability to kick mongols off the top of lighthouses. It’s ace!

I should have elaborated, I do ignore those fights for the most part. But it just highlights how hollow the game is for me. 

All the things you've pointed out as ace is just more fighting, so I'm afraid that's not going to pull me back in. 

And using the fast travel will only take away one of the things I really like about the game. The scenery. 

It's just not for me and I think it's been massively overhyped. Clearly people are enjoying it, but I'm just not feeling it.

Train Sim World 2 comes out tomorrow. They've also unveiled their "road map" of future content.

The Isle Of Wight and South Eastern High Speed stuff looks interesting, as does the TGV.

I hope they've put more effort into making the game than went into choosing the term "roadmap." I mean come on. They could've had a nice schematic diagram with the Upcoming Line, the In Planning Line, etc, stretching colourfully across Britain.

Fair enough. I said myself it was very pretty on the outside but quite hollow on the inside. Feels like a good platform for a franchise but in a world where Red Dead and BotW are a couple of years old it is a bit of a throw back.

Roadmap is a generic industry term, the head of Dovetail is a former EA exec, and the incremental update/plentiful DLC model is straight out of their playbook.

So is powerbomb, but it didn't stop Diesel calling his a Jackknife to push his gimmick.

Just saying, they passed up an obvious chance to sprinkle a little more fun and identity into their marketing, which is what a published roadmap falls under.
