Red Dead Redemption now Xbox One X enhanced

@Breadbitten aah of course my bad.

Still though, as soon as the vid showed them walking around the distant buildings no longer had the screen crawl ascociated with aliasing on the xb1x.

Looks so much better. I'm really impressed with the xb1's back compatibility!

Kirby Star Allies review - a delightfully detailed throwback

DakeyrasUK

1 month ago

I really want to like this, the demo sure was charming and did make me smile. But I was bored by the lack of challenge by the end of it...

This review does not help ease my concern with it being a ride with some cool elements. Will settle for the backlog for a while longer.

How video game heroes struggle with their identities

DakeyrasUK

1 month ago

I struggle with characters like Nate because he is nice, fun and carefree, but does go around slaughtering hundreds of people.

Sure it is a game, but if I play a game where I go and kill lots I don't want the developers to try and convince me that im playing a good guy really.

Joel in TLoU just about worked as he was a seriously flawed individual. Doom guy works bevause he is a an army grunt.

Games like xenoblade work because it is so fanatsy based that I can accept swinging your sword in combat is not the same as trying to kill, so characters can be fighting for their lives without trying to kill their opponent.

Is Bayonetta on Switch the definitive console version?

DakeyrasUK

2 months ago

@nee50n Well I'm going to buck the trend here and state that I preferred number 2.

I bought the double pack on wiiu and played through them in order.

I thought 1 was less forgiving of mistakes which I found frustrating (e.g as soon as cutscenes end you nearly always need to dodge or lose 1/3 of your health).

The second had just as deep and polished combat mechanics. The over the top action was even more gloriously ott and the story was much improved.

Overly one is a 9/10 and 2 is 9.something /10. Not much in it, but I deffo had more fun with number 2.

Nintendo has announced Nintendo Labo, a bizarre new interactive cardboard toy line

DakeyrasUK

3 months ago

I like the idea. I have always enjoyed spending time making cardboard models, or making models kits of engineering type stuff. So yeah, intrigued to find out more about this.

Some of them bits look pretty darn complex to build so should provide some good fun building.

How it translates to innovating gaming once built is up for debate. But well done for trying!

Sea of thieves, red dead redemption 2, state of decay 2 and spiderman are likely to be my day 1 purchases this year.

If bayo 3, mp4, pokemon and shenmue are all released then add those too.

Im sure others here will be great and i will crack, but my focus will be on catching up with 2017s titles - xenoblade 2, shadows of war, horizon zd, nier automata, nioh, sexy brutale, edith finch are all games in my backlog or the best of list have made me want to play.

Eurogamer's Top 50 Games of 2017: 20-11

DakeyrasUK

@Dizzy I just started 2 days ago. But already put in 12 hrs and it all im thinking about.

Not a switch game, but Metroid samus returns is deffo one of my top games this year.

That might make the top 10? Though I accept it not featuring at all due to being on an aging system. But what a last hurrah it was!

So Zelda and Mario will obviously take 2 of the top 10. Mario and rabbids, arms will possibly take 2 more of the top 10.

Any other switch exclusives likely to make it? Could we see xenoblade chronicles 2 or has that released too late?

There was plenty of praise for the doom port too...

Certainly has been the year of the switch for me. Only 2017 games i have played not on switch were southpark and resident evil 7. Just not had the time (or desire) to play on the other consoles.

"Initial" Star Wars Battlefront 2 loot box-related changes go live

DakeyrasUK

5 months ago

Bought the game for 30 quid, sold it last week after completing the campaign and 10 hrs or so online - mainly star fighter assault, for 32 quid.

Put the money into xenoblade chronicles 2 for 30 quid from argos.

These changes do nothing to help me consider buying the game again in the future to try the new content released.

@Fourfoldroot whilst that is a fair point. I will have a 4k tv in the future and the balance of delaying that so that when i fo the psvr no hdr passthrough will is not worth the savings offered today imo.

That is the old one with the slit in the middle. The new one is a smooth box as imaged here.

@LordDemigod currently 42 quid on amazon and tesco direct.

More than i spent on initial release (i paid 32 quid on release day thanks to a sainsburys nectar card voucher/receipt thing).

Still, I know I'll get 100 hrs out of it at least. So reduces the perceived lack of value plenty enough for me to buy again.

Will have to buy it second hand though!

"With D2, we want statements like 'I want to run the Raid, Trials, or go back to Titan to get more of its Shader' to be possible."
Really? The reason people should grind the same parts of the game is for shaders. Is that the draw? Not, that level was ace as fuck, let's go again!

This is doing little to change my opinion that this game most definitely is not for me!

Makes Nintendo's online fee of about 20 quid a year more appealing at least...

A 25% increase is a farce, with all the millions of more of their consoles sold in this gen I feel someqhat cynical about this.
