  1. Pretty hyped for this now. That review above made me really excited for the combat and exploration. I say this about every PS4 game but damn I wish I had a Pro to get some extra bells n whilstles.
  2. Finished this last night. I loved it. It was short, but that just meant they could really focus on perfecting each level, it was great! I loved how sometimes you'd be fighting alongside BT, then you'd be alone switching between timelines, then back in BT for some kick ass mech combat, then you'd be flung across the map to wall run and do some nice environment puzzles. Nothing felt padded or stretched out to get the play time up. They were just like "Here, look how cool this is, now check this awesome set piece out, oh shit let's go fight in that mech over there" The art was stunning in places I found it hard to believe it was a Source engine game. BT was wonderfully written, I really enjoyed his replies to your comments. Story was fine, but I didn't really care I was having too much fun with the gameplay. Now I can join everyone else who's upset there doesn't seem to be any Titanfall 3 on the way.

    GTA V

    Man, I wish I could go back to when VC came out, was such a great time in my life. Not a care in the world and spending tons of time playing amazing games like VC. I'd love for R* to go back and create GTA games with the same themes/styles as 3, VC and SA. Heck, even a new GTA set in the GTA2 universe would be sick. I'd love to choose which gangs to work for and have a respect system back. But alas, we get GTA V on another generation of consoles
  4. One of the VFX artists I work with is in a sludge metal band and I'm really enjoying their new album. Although it's a bit weird hearing someone you knows voice in some music https://open.spotify.com/album/5kv7ojTC5lQ8FQcStFxCtQ?si=yL40Lk43QHmJUlqQJe0qcQ
  5. Thanks for the heads up. Got it now!
  6. Isn't this like the 4th time they've released this game? Doomed to fail just let it die. What a ridiculous payment model.
  7. I've not followed this at all but saw this blow up on Twitter after it aired. Gave it a watch this morning and I want this game. Looks beautiful and the gameplay looks like it'll be a fun mix between Assassin's Creed and Zelda: BOTR. It got me hyped!
  8. I loaded up Sea of Thieves over the weekend since I was too tired to play something intense. Actually found myself really enjoying just cruising around and finding treasure - Helps that the game is beautiful to look at at time too. That ocean tech tho Couldn't help but take a few screens:
  9. Got another junior position open up. Could potentially hire someone more experienced though of course. Anyone interested hit me up! https://careers.rebellion.com/#/job/EE968DEE26

    Corona Virus

    Medical staff are having to try and stop the protests in America. They shouldn't have to be doing this they're already risking their lives for everyone.

    Corona Virus

    Some people in the US are so concerned about their haircuts and their lawns that they're protesting their lockdown in the streets...
  12. It was a TV aerial so you could watch TV on your Game Gear. I had one and it worked really well, just didn't have the amount of batteries required to run the thing so was always tied to a plug in the wall I'm holding off on this generation, probably going to wait a couple years, see what games come out and maybe wait for a good bundle deal/the inevitable mid-generation console upgrades (PS5 Pro/Xbox Series XXX). I game mostly on my PC anyway and play co-op games with my fiance on the Switch. So far the PS5 has my vote since they'll probably have the better games. We'll see what MS can do.
  13. Yeah I'm about 6 hours in and having a blast with this, I just want to play more! It's way more "anime" than the original now they've got the budget and modern day effects to pull it off, there's lot of people doing crazy moves, but it's a Japanese RPG so I can overlook that. Midgar is absolutely gorgeous and I love exploring it. Running around the slums and looking up at the plates above really helps sell the scale of the place. Get it!
  14. Switching over to WFH hasn't been too bad for me. The only issue is we currently live with my fiance's parents whilst we save for a house. So my PC is in our bedroom and since my fiance works nights (she's an essential worker) and I start work in the morning she's forced to sleep elsewhere. Could be worse though. In good news we had our offer on a house accepted and got our mortgage application submitted just in time. Most banks are now retracting all of their mortgages since nobody knows wtf will happen with the economy or anything. So we've almost got our foot on the ladder, just wish we could move now!
  15. I quite enjoyed the shotgun bit I figured it out quite quickly. My only issue is I'm playing in a tiny space so it was a little difficult for me to position myself to reach out and grab it safely. Fought my first combine last night, they're quite fun to fight, kinda feels like Time Crisis or other arcade shooters ducking behind cover and popping up to take shots at them. Having a bit of trouble with grenades, never seem to be able to throw them too far, but that might just be me not being used to VR and I probably need to release the button later to let go of them. You know what though... fk black headcrabs. I fear them more in this game than I did in HL2!
  16. Caved and bought this last night, hype was killing me. Playing on an Oculus Rift on a 4.5 year old machine (Intel 6700k, 980ti, 16GB Ram) and the game runs smooth with no lag and looks absolutely gorgeous even on defaulted low settings. Dat baked lighting! I just got the flashlight after about 2 hours, a lot of exploring and messing about with shit but had a ton of fun. Feels very Half-Life and it feels great to be back in City 17. Having a lot of fun with it though, looking forward to the rest of the story now!
  17. Might need to install it and check it out. BC2 was great and I'd bet it's more populated than BF3 since it always gets more praise it seems. I'd honestly like to see a modern setting for the next BF game. That or 2143 with the return of Titan mode.
  18. I installed BF3 the other day as I'm not a fan of BFV's TTK changes and I really miss BF3. Game kept crashing or failing to connect to servers or something sadly. Need to investigate it I think. Is BC2 still populated?
  19. Thanks @Radu! Glad to finally see it released and people seem to be enjoying it. Getting around the 7-8/10 mark in reviews which I think is fair and I'm pretty happy with
  20. Don't believe this thread hasn't been updated in nearly 5 years. Anyway, new trailer:
  21. Gonna need to get that book I think. Kinda glad this got delayed, there were just too many games coming out at the same time. This gives my wallet a break and lets CDPR make the game better.
  22. That's just one of the levels. We have levels in Milan, Vesuvius, Venice, Croatia and some other locations Thank you!
  23. Thank you! Can't wait to see it in the wild
  24. Had a lot of influencer and media posts about ZA4 release today. Less than a month to go until release. Currently just fixing the last of my bugs now, it's so close!
  25. Reveal trailer and release date announcement. Spoilers: 3rd April 2020
