  1. 1. Metro Exodus 2. QUBE 2 3. Darksiders 3 4. What Remains of Edith Finch 5. Ori and the Will of the Wisps 6. Doom Eternal 7. Journey to the Savage Planet 8. Dark Souls 3 9. Carrion (Game Pass) This is a pretty cool game which nails the feel and stuff you would want to do if you were the monster from a horror movie. It outstayed it’s welcome for me slightly - despite only being about 4 hours long, and for some bizarre reason, it hasn’t got a map, which makes it quite easy to get lost in a few places. 7/10.
  2. I think the only way to do this successfully is to make it an action-comedy.
  3. That was like reading a story from The Onion that went on too long.
  4. Soundtrack could do with an orchestral version of this.
  5. Well, it certainly makes it looks like you view the people who invest in your hardware as a bunch of mugs, as you provide free online to the people who don’t.
  6. Oh dear. It’s still gonna do millions, isn’t it?
  7. I can only assume that no “big” PS5 means we’re definitely getting the price tomorrow and it’s going to cost much less than we think.
  8. I think they were some of the first people to go big on podcasting and you really got a sense of their staff's personalities. I don't think I had seen anything like that before. You got to know what people liked and disliked, and whose recommendations to take on, etc. You might remember them as schills, but at the time Dan Hsu's interview with Peter Moore caused a big fuss, and the podcast where they got Dennis Dyack on and he basically crucified one of their staff for daring to dislike the E3 demo of that awful game he made was just crazy. The 1Up Show was also brilliant. I used to absolutely love watching that and would love to see a similar kind of show now. edit: Found that interview: http://www.the-magicbox.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15974 I'd be more than happy for a return to that kind of games journalism.
  9. I think Shane Bettenhausen. He now works for Sony in biz dev or something like that. It's been quite nice to see where some of the people from 1Up have ended up. Luke Smith basically running Bungie is not one I would have predicted.
  10. I agree with most of Broker’s post. To be clear, I don’t think Microsoft are doing this because they love me. I just think it’s reasonable for us to support these amoral corporate entities in making more consumer friendly decisions by voting with our wallets. I don’t think the controller thing is enough for me to not buy a console from Sony in the same way the initial Xbox One reveal put me off that completely, but I think it’s crappy and I’ll happily moan about it on a forum.
  11. I think you’re conflating what is essentially their USP (their games*) with what appears to be an arbitrary limitation which I think is poorly justified. It’s not about catch up or doing something they haven’t done before - the hardware connects and works. It just doesn’t work with PS5 games because they don’t want it to. *While it would be better for the consumer to have them on all platforms, I don’t expect them to run themselves out of the hardware business for it and don’t see it as anti-consumer.
  12. Ok, mate, charging into the xCloud thread to bring up how Crackdown 3’s cloud features never really materialised, out of the blue, seems totally normal, then.
  13. I don’t get the point of this post at all. I know the free market is cynical by nature, it doesn’t mean I should just shrug my shoulders when a company in an industry I’m interested in does something that I feel is anti-consumer. You could make that argument about Microsoft, but I personally don’t see it myself. I certainly hope you mean something other than fancy rumble when you’re talking about new features and advances. Anyway, I’ve made my point and I think we’re just going to go around in circles here. What do you think Sony’s approach at the end of the last generation was all about? You look like you’re getting increasingly hot and bothered by any criticism of Sony - resorting to weird drive by posting, in this and other threads, to achieve I don’t know what.
  14. Because their main competition are doing it and the reasons for not doing it are cynical at best. I didn’t see people saying when cross play started about how we’d never been able to do it before, so why be upset when platforms refuse to support it? There’s a lot of posts on the last page going on about how anyone who has bothered to post about this must be a fanboy. They don’t match up with the discussions had at all and do more to drag this place into platform wars that don’t matter to the majority on here.
  15. Glad it’s not just me. I used to game on PC with an SSD, and yeah, console loading times are terrible. The move to SSDs is one of the biggest draws for me - games look fine on the One X.
