One thing you didn't mention was the soundtrack. I believe it was scored by the same guy who scored Final Fantasy XII and it shows. It flits between sombre and joyful in such a playful way. Very memorable.

Games of 2015 no. 4: Rocket League

JohnnyIsTruant

2 years ago

I never play multiplayer games because I'm usually shite and get anxious about pissing off the other players unfortunate enough to be in the same server as me. Been playing Rocket League online since day....three actually (because of the server issues) and not only do I enjoy it immensely I'm actually quite good at it.

It got me playing more online games and not really giving a shit which is one hell of an achievement. Oh, and the game's great.

Nier's sequel will have all the weirdness of the original, plus a little more polish

JohnnyIsTruant

3 years ago

I don't think my heart can take it if there's anything with the emotional punch of the Mr Beepy storyline. If the writing and soundtrack are up to the standards of the original and Platinum are on their A game this could very well be the game of the generation.

For those of you new to the series here are a couple of standout tracks from the first just to show how good it could be.

Quantic Dream reveals sci-fi game Detroit

3 years ago

@PCMaestro Actually the one thing Quantic Dream do really well at is eeking every drop of power out of whatever machine they're releasing on. Beyond on PS3 looked far better than many current gen releases. So I wouldn't be shocked if the finished game ends up looking just like if not better than that footage.

Bought mine a couple of years ago after I'd built up a massive stack of games through Plus and never regretted it. I love the thing, reminds me a lot of the Dreamcast for some reason. Unfortunately I've got scratches on that beautiful OLED screen. Nothing major but noticeable enough during bright games. And it bugs my happiness. Don't want to get a new one because they're pretty much all LED models now and that OLED screen is stunning.

Hatred review

JohnnyIsTruant

3 years ago

To say that Hatred is the only example of an exploitation game is a bit unfair. There's loads, a lot of them guff like this to be fair but then you've got Manhunt which did make a point and did play well. It might have been topped in OTT violence by a lot of the modern gen games but I don't think it's been topped in vicious brutality yet, which is why it was great. You weren't supposed to be reveling in the violence, it was supposed to be off-putting and add to the horror element. Something which Hatred just doesn't get.

I swear that this whole Konami fiasco (and I'm including the replacing of Hayter in this) is a big Kojima ruse. That head transplant doctor? No Hayter? Konami going mental and pulling out of the NYSE and firing Kojima? Silent Hills being cancelled? And now a spit in the face of the fans with a move like this? It all just fits too well with what we know of the story of The Phantom Pain. I might be just talking shit but I have hope yet...

ArenaNet makes example of Guild Wars 2 cheater

That...that's sort of genius in a strange way. Human decency won't allow such barbarism in reality so it's been taken to a consequence free environment while still retaining the humiliation and avoidance of crime the historical punishments were supposed to inspire. And nobody was hurt so we can quite happily laugh at it. Could see this being a legit punishment in fifty years time as we continue to get more immersed in digital environments.

It looks like something that would appear in a low budget channel 5 type film to show how evil games are warping the antagonists mind. It's like a shit caricature of a shit caricature. If anyone does still care about it in a week then it'll be relegated to the status of those equally shit white power games that nobody really cares about.

The new perspective thing's interesting. A bit like Rocksmith only without the freaky looped animations of the 2D crowd to scare me. Don't know if I could go back to the more simplistic playstyle of GH after Rocksmith though. It was always more fun I suppose and that music video mode looks ace.

Well written and genuinely funny article. I think there are a few people here in the comments not quite getting it. Not played Bloodborne yet but I had the same thing with Dark Souls. Of course I was the silly twat who thought the graveyard was the correct path forward, after that it was a doddle (until I got stuck at the bloody gargoyles).
