  • Finding the humanity in Dark Souls 2

    Finished DS3 earlier. It's the best souls game for me. More refined combat, areas are consistently of a high standard and the boss fights are fantastic. Reply -1
  • 28 hours with Dark Souls 3's Japanese PS4 import

  • addyb 01/04/2016

    I'm about 2/3rds the way through now. It's been great so far. It maybe is a bit easier for players with experience. The bosses have been great so far. I'm 11 down on that count and I've had troubles with 3 of them. It's hard to say if the bosses are easier as I never had much issues with them on previous games bar a few so this so far follows suit.Combat for me is excellent and the enemies hit harder and faster so you really need to have your roll and blocking skills honed as parrying is a lot harder and riskier to pull off.

    Some minor frame rate issues aside the game is absolutely brilliant. I'll be interested in comparing the 2 version so since I've double dipped. Reply +2

    Agreed. Demons is my favourite of all the souls games. It just has a really creepy vibe to it.

    Alex_Star wrote:@Ivattthestanier @jinglejangleInsight don't affect any kind of difficulty on the game, it's a retarded rumor that some lunatic started or something while struggling with the game probably. I tried myself doing a ng with max insight and one with 10-20, nothing is different. There are only a few select examples of insight making the game harder; lanterns guys in the cathedral ward getting their buffs/magic attacks, mad ones spawning in hemwick lane, lower frenzy resistance... pretty much itThis. It only effects your frenzy meter and the enemies mentioned. The entire game remains at the same difficulty obviously depending on what playthrough you're on. Reply 0

  • Rare Replay studio's first UK chart-topper since Banjo-Kazooie on N64 in 1998

  • addyb 11/08/2015

    It's a great collection. Besides jetpac the other speccy games haven't aged well for me but the rest of the collection is great. Rc pro am and cobra triangle being the stand outs on nes. The rest I can play anytime as they have aged quite well. Only paid 15 for it as well which is probably the best bargain in gaming I've had. I originally was going to buy another xb1 for the gears remake but had to dive in earlier to get this. Reply 0

    ronorra wrote:@cbaxter006 I think the problem for oldies like me who often remember Nintendo's golden age with rose tinted glasses. They haven't progressed with the times, it all seem to be a downward spiral since the n64 days.A shame you are getting negged for this, since everyone that were there in the SNES era can agree that it was the golden age of Nintendo and that the N64 was where things went downhill. Problem tho is that the Nintendo fan nowadays is unable to grasp that.Good to see tho that Nintendo is doing better then expected, don't want them to disappear.Agree. The snes will always be my favourite console. The games library was truly incredible. Reply 0

  • It gets worse - Batman: Arkham Knight on PC lacks console visual features

  • addyb 25/06/2015

    Disappointed to hear this game is a mess on pc. Got this as a freebie with my new laptop incoming but looks like I'll hold off to see if it's fixed. Failing that I'll just buy it for PS4 at a later date. I do want a batman fix so might play origins. Reply -1

  • Does Scholar of the First Sin make Dark Souls 2 worth returning to?

    Loving this game. Even an apparently weak game in the souls franchise is still better than the majority of the crap they churn out these days. Reply +7
  • addyb 08/04/2015

    I never played the original release but I'm progressing ok on this. Struggled with the opening area a bit but since then it's been typical souls progression for me. Get stuck for a while, beat it, get a bit further, rinse repeat. I'm no expert souls player either. I have the experience but dont have uber skills. Reply +5
  • addyb 08/04/2015

    Really enjoying this. Decided to buy this when still half way into bloodborne and its kept me off that for a few days. I love BB I really do but always missed a proper souls game and since I bypassed this when first released I had to dive in with the definitive edition.As for the durability debate I can't say it sullies my experience. I'd heard about it beforehand but I just treat it as a built in game mechanic. I always have 3-4 main weapons of different types anyway so it's a non issue for me. Reply +1
  • Bloodborne review

  • addyb 27/03/2015

    Been playing this since Tuesday and its outstanding. Its a really special game and right up there with the best I've ever played over 35 years of gaming. It's the main reason I bought a PS4. From software can do no wrong in my eyes. The world's and gameplay they craft is just utterly sublime. BB is simply put a joy to play. No other game has ever given me such frustration and jubilation in equal measures. Best game of this gen by such a margin it's not even funny and in years down the line will be remembered in these greatest games of all time lists :) Reply +3

  • Nintendo NX is "new hardware with a brand new concept"

  • addyb 17/03/2015

    Why would anyone want it to be like the PS4/XB1. I couldn't care less if the next hardware wasn't on parity. I don't really want the same games spread over 3 consoles. It's bad enough with Sony and MS having near enough identical libraries (due to multi plats) I just want some innovation and some fun from my gaming. I'm happy with my ps4 and Xbox one but want something different as well. Reply +8

    To further expand why I've never played any of these. When the N64 came out I was 17-18 years old and was constantly out clubbing and doing all sorts of crap. I owned an N64 but only ever played a handful of games. Always regretted never playing these and didn't want to pay the silly eBay prices. Reply -11

I'm not saying it's a bad game because it isn't, but of all Nintendo's core franchises, Mario Kart has changed the least and is still based more on luck than skill.The core gameplay of pretty much any franchise out there remains the same.

    Problem I have with Drive club is I've just got bored of it real fast. The lack of variety in races let's it down for me. I hate drift events and the AI is silly so only time trials appeal. Don't get me wrong I've more then had my moneys worth out of it but I'm kind of done with the game now. I much prefer GT6 due to having a better career mode so gone back to that. For the 29 I paid for it though I have been impressed. Reply 0

    OnlyJoeKing wrote:@addyb Diddy Kong on the ps1? Man I loved that game. What a game! Yeah a single player story mode like that would have been brilliant. I'm not sure exactly how you are supposed to progress single player in Mario Kart but then I've only really been playing multiplayer and dabbling in the single player side. Dragon age is OK but I can see why it's not been listed. It could be more interesting to play. Battles are generally either completely impossible or virtually effortless - compared with the tight combat of the Souls series it's just not very rewarding. I'm finding it hard to keep going back on PS4. The game itself is very polished though and does feel high quality. But without that edge... yeah. Easy for me to understand why it's not in their top ten.Diddy Kong was N64 mate. Reply +2
  • addyb 01/01/2015

    Amusing thing is most people who are slating the 8th iteration of MK have probably never played it or are one of these types that has no complaints over games like Assassins Creed which have churned out 7 of those in less then 10 years. Or Halo, cod etc etc. Nothing wrong with those games of course but you get what I'm saying? Reply +4
  • addyb 01/01/2015

    I see the crybabies are out in force due to MK8 getting goty. As for the game itself well it certainly is stellar and the most fun I've had online this year by a country mile. Single player is a bit dull though. I wish they would do a proper career or a story mode like diddy Kong had.As for other games well shadow of mordor was my goty for a single player experience. It was fantastic. I also really enjoyed bayonetta 2 and wolfenstein.Besides that well only Drive Club springs to mind. I am more surprised Destiny is no 2. Each to their own but I found it completely dull and a grindfest. Still I appreciate others like that kind of thing. Dragon age not listed? Not played it myself but the general vibe across all forums I visit is that it's a stunning game.2015 goty will be Zelda or Bloodborne. I'm eagerly awaiting both of those :) Reply +2
