    Games development and obscure football. One day I promise to combine the two.

  1. Generally, hidden collectibles suck. They are the cheapest, shittest way of getting the player to explore a level. I believe when you go off the main track, the reason should be led by gameplay - to explore an uncharted part of the level that's interesting in its own right, gain a tactical upper hand, find a short cut to another area or be faced with a new challenge. Going around a blind corner and checking every nook and cranny by rote because there might be some dull collectible there isn't achieving anything like that, it's hide and seek without the thrill of occasionally being the hider or second guessing your opponent. It's You've Misplaced Your Keys - The Game. For that reason, Crackdown's agility orbs do them well - highly visible, the trick is not finding them (save for the last few, a flaw I can overlook) but working out how to reach them.

    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    With the Switch NES sweeteners on the online sub, it does seem to be moving that way from the Virtual Console days, but the lack of GB, GBA, SNES and N64 titles is an irritating omission.

    Also a trippy bonus scene at the end of each act.

    He's worried that any minute now, someone will shove him into a photo op with a human rights abuser.

    Doom - 25 years old today

    I played Doom multiplayer precisely once. Two PlayStations, two TVs, one copy of the game, and a judicious amount of disc swapping. It was such a hassle that it wasn't worth trying again in a different level. Multiplayer LAN blasts will forever be beyond me, because fuck playing online.

    The people it's going to antagonise are the people who feel he shouldn't have, be proud of, or want to show off those things. Which gets back to the idea Collymore was talking about - there's an "acceptable" way to be, and an "unacceptable" one, and it just so happens the "acceptable" way involves being as invisible or unassuming as possible if you happen to not be white.

    Had a look yesterday evening and can't find either.

    Doom - 25 years old today

    The PS version always felt more horror than action, even as you were firing rockets into the faces of cybernetic demons. It was such a good score. id were clearly going for a metal cover vibe with the soundtrack but it doesn't fit for me. Whereas in Doom 2016, I wouldn't change it for anything.

    What are you playing Christmas Day?

    I'll be away on Christmas Day, but I do intend a festive playthrough of Nakatomi Plaza in Die Hard Trilogy.
  10. I don't recall that. And I have excellent memory - I celebrate my birthday bang on time every year and that happened ages ago.

    Doom - 25 years old today

    My first experience of Doom was on the PlayStation. To this day, the music in the original just feels wrong.
  12. No, pretty sure it's "alles".

    Fairly sure a green player is a hulk. And also Givanildo Vieira de Sousa.

    He finished fifth in the FIFA award too in September, to Ronaldo's second. It smacks of heavy weighting to CL and World Cup performances. Not that Ronaldo wasn't superb.

    I can't let this go without a video. This stage is the game for me, the whole feeling condensed into one short burst. It's a fantastic track and the level uses it perfectly.
