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

  • addyb 08/04/2015

    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

    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

Kids are in bed around half 7 so that leaves me with 5 hours a night if I wanted. I only tend to have 1 or 2 though depending on the game.

    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 -10

    The_shlaaaag_returns wrote:@Number1Laing Yeah, pretty much. The core gameplay has barely changed in over 20 years. 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. Fifa, cod, halo, God of war, assassins creed, batman, gran turismo etc etc etc Reply +2

  • addyb 01/01/2015

    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

    I think the game is amazing. Like @seenoweevil says the handling is brilliant and I love the different feel the cars have and the tracks. Like others I'm obviously not happy with the online side of things but I haven't been hammering the game and have tons of career content left and TT's if that gets done.Best racer of this ilk I've played since pgr3. Great job on the actual game evolution. An absolute piss poor job on the whole online side of things though. Reply +3

Since November I've played bf4 and resogun. Have got the other PS plus games but they do nothing for me. I would love a next gen racer. So far there is one on the console. Need for speed. Which is the same as the ps3 version but 20 more expensive. My ps3 is in daily use whilst my ps4 gathers dust. Granted there are some great looking games on the horizon but I can't be the only person who hasn't found anything of interest. As for bf4. It was 28 on the ps3. 10 to upgrade. That or spend 50-55 on the ps4 version. Tell you what I did enjoy. I played titanfall on xbone. That was pretty good fun. Shame.I feel the same way. Bought an Xbox one at launch but after having 2 faulty kinects in 6 weeks wound me up so I traded it for a ps4 with BF4 and Fifa (for my son)Since then ive bought second son but sold it within days as I found it garbage and nothing else appeals at all. I did buy trials fusion the other week and that's good fun but nothing that makes me want to switch the ps4 on. Still I knew this would be the case game wise and I know in another 12 months it will have a better library. I just always like being an early adopter. But as launch consoles go I've barely touched it. I've probably had around 25 hours worth of play on it in nearly 5 months.But not to worry. Got plenty to play on my pc, 3DS and Wii U (MK8 next week :) ) Reply +1
