Dispelling the myths of Bloodborne

Bloodborne is my least favourite of all the Soulsborne games, but mostly because the Gothic schtick is so samey after a while.

@SvennoJ You'll need a pen and paper for at least some problems, but the game lets you take photos of anything to use as visual references later. It's also awesome.

@matthewhaycock It's not great, sadly. The hybrid controls are wonky and it really struggles with object manipulation.

Offworld Trading Company review

Danbojones

2 years ago

@frightlever Quoting, as you do, from Margaret Thatcher, I have no faith in your opinion. :)

What I meant was that the rural working class community I grew up in saw any aspiration to wealth as something crass and ignoble. Something not for us. More prevalent in the generation of my grandfather, but still present in my childhood.

Lost Humanity 2: No More Heroes

Danbojones

6 years ago

I couldn't disagree more about a supposed lack of heroes, frankly. Every time I go to a show I meet more inspiring people who've given me some of the best entertainment experiences of my life. Usually they're humble and self-deprecating, even when surrounded by legions of adoring fans.

Their names are known, even if they're not always plastered on the front of boxes, jewel cases and posters.

Games are made by teams, and to glorify single people as 'creators' seems to belittle all of the hard work of others. Perhaps that's why we don't have 'rockstars', because they're all in bands of fifteen people or more.

Nonetheless, I can name at least three dozen figures in gaming who inspire, innovate and entertain with almost ceaseless consistency. More power to them.

We're experiencing some technical problems with our hosting at the minute, I'm afraid, which isn't affecting all of the site, but has stymied some aspects. Unfortunately serving the podcast as a download is one of those aspects. We're working on getting everything back to normal as quickly as possible, but it's really out of hands for the time being!

Sorry. And the podcast is definitely worth the wait. Or my bits are, at least.

ERS is still an option, in parts of the game, but it's no longer such a big part of things. It's sort of useful for evading missiles, but they seemed a bit reticent to talk it up as much as they did for the first one.

@espadachin Actually, I honestly don't know. We were playing in a closed environment where every chair was taken, or at least signed in to the lobby, so any vacant controllers just sat on the grid. Something we'll try and confirm for you in the review.

Single player is much more of option with Tri than it has been before, you can still easily sink 60 hours plus into it.

@JetSetWilly I used the classic controller Pro, which is generally very good, apart from the odd use of the + button as a third attack option. It also makes mining etc a bit easier. Not sure how it plays with the nunchuck, but the classic pro is a nice, comfortable pad.

The bugs definitely bring it down a mark, but I have to judge a product as I see it, not on its potential post-patch. Bottom line: this is a 6 for most people, perhaps an 8 for a very patient RPG enthusiast.

@ChthonicEcho: That was pretty tongue in cheek actually, I spend a lot more of my time playing RPGs than Halo. :)
