    Yeah it's honestly not too much like Dark Souls.. It seems to be much more boss/mini-boss oriented. Obviously DS/BB had big boss fights, but nowhere near the amount and density that Sekiro has. It's really good fun. I think the combat is better tbh, it's more about parrying than dodging/blocking.

    It's sooo good. Getting pretty far through and I feel like I'm slowly mastering the combat. MAJOR spoilers below, please do not read if you haven't played much of the game.

    Apex Legends

    Forget what I said, I'm addicted to this game. And I'm apparently really good at it too, I dunno how. Got 3 wins the other night with 8+ kills average. RIP PUBG.

    Apex Legends

    Very arcadey gameplay. It's polished, but I don't think it's gonna tear me away from PUBG

    Kingdom Hearts 3

    I was addicted to the first one back in my teens. It was really great. I'm sorta tempted by this but I hear that it's very cutscene heavy? Hmm.

    WIP in WIP, post your level screenshots!

    Not sure where we can post stuff like this, but I've been messing about with making my own little retro shooter game for a while now. Everything is very WIP, I'm mainly just using it to learn how to code with blueprints in UE4. You can see more updates on my Twitter feed. https://twitter.com/LiamTart Here's the latest vid showing off hitscan weapon firing and basic 2d weapon animation. So much fun to figure out all these little problems. I see making a game as a huge mountain of problems that you have to slowly solve to ascend.. lol. And another vid that shows off the first implementation of the lit weapon sprite, and the door blueprint in action:

    Goals for 2019?

    Cheers dude! I appreciate you opening up about it! I've been chatting to my brother and cousins about therapy, they all go.. They said they got a lot out of it. By the sounds of it, it's worth going, just to sorta help you work through things and organise your thoughts a bit more. I'm going to look into it this week!

    Goals for 2019?

    Happy new year all! I've not been checking Mapcore much recently but thought I'd jump on and see what everyone's up to.. I really hope you all achieve your goals this year. 2018 was a great year for me.. I think. I struggle to see the positives sometimes! Anyway, I got married to my girlfriend of 10 years... We bought our first house, got a bloody DOG (who I love to bits. shes seriously just gorgeous and so friendly to everyone. She melts our hearts all the time!)... Work is really good fun though it can be hard to get motivated when working from home. But what I'm really chuffed with from a game dev standpoint is the fact that I finally started to learn blueprints in UE4, and I'm making my own little retro shooter. Hopefully one day I can release it, but I'm taking it one step at a time. I haven't had this much fun doing games stuff in... well, I can't even remember how long. It feels like a new world of things to explore! So, in 2019, here's what I want to do: Make lots more progress on my game. I'm not sure what's feasible really, but I think I can release a short demo online, towards the end of the year. Make more friends in my local area. We moved somewhere new, and live in more of a suburban neighbourhood in a smallish town, so I need to get out of my comfort zone and meet new people. Keep in touch more with old friends. God, I'm terrible at this. I had a pretty bad experience with some old school friends back at University (I was pretty depressed and didn't want to go home to hang out with them all, so I think they took it as me not liking them? Dunno, it was all a bit unresolved), and it kinda shook me a bit and I find it much easier to retreat into solitude rather than hang out. I need to sort this, and I've already made plans to meet up with Uni mates this year. Look after my mental health a bit more. I think I've suffered with depression for a while. Perhaps not a chemical imbalance (I don't want to try anti-depressants), but I think I would benefit from going to therapy. So that's something I'm going to do this year, see a therapist. Fuck knows what my issues are but maybe they'll come out when I'm there Look after my physical health. I gained a bit of weight this year due to various stresses, so I want to work out a little more. Play more piano. I finally got my piano back from home and brought it to my new house.. Need to practice more and get back up to my old standards! Write music. I think I'll write music for the game I'm working on, which is pretty exciting. No idea where to start Anyway, that's it I guess! Hope you're all good guys

    Yup! If you grab it whilst it's free, it stays free forever.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Anyone played any more of this? I sold it on Ebay after a week... I was just really bored. Well, bored isn't really the word.. I was doing a lot of hunting which was quite good fun but I just didn't care about the story. Maybe I'm just not that into Westerns or something? Not really sure, but it just didn't click for me. Looks beautifully realistic. Probably one of the most realistic games I've ever seen. But I don't think I really enjoy 'cinematic' games these days. I was the same with Uncharted. I think a lot of people are getting enjoyment out of the story and the characters and their progression, but I just had no interest in them. I think if I'd played this a few years ago, I'd have really enjoyed it, but I can't really justify the time sink now.

    Fallout 76

    Counterpoint to everything I'm seeing about this game... One of my friends owns it and is really enjoying it, and he's a big Fallout fan. He said it was a bit buggy on release but after a few patches it's pretty great and he's having a fun time with it. I have no opinion really, just wanted to share what I've heard.

    Warcraft III: Reforged

    Holy shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii I cannot wait for this. The soundtrack at 5:00 brings me right back to those early days playing this when it first came out. I'm so excited to jump back in!

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I'm enjoying it so far. Controls can be a bit clunky. I don't understand how they've built the world though... I'm looking for seams but can't find any on cliffs etc. Anyone got any idea how they did it? Looks like they're using decals or something to mask seams? Like, just go to a river and you'll see these cool mudslide type things on the side... Must be a model. But the transition to terrain is seamless.
