  1. DOOM 2016 is basically current-gen Brutal DOOM in many aspects. Certainly the kill-frenzy game play and executions. No bad thing at all, but a massive departure from the way traditional DOOM plays.
  2. Amazingly many of the comments in that DF video are based on Switch port anticipation. They're all excited to see what's going to be done. I've yet to play DOOM on the Switch.
  3. It's sounding absolutely fucking incredible. Dare I say they've lifted even more elements of Metroid Prime for this, looking at that above clip? I've been replaying DOOM a little in between work tasks and the double-jump feels exactly like MP. I was going to wait for it to hit the sales but I don't think am gonnae be able tae contain masell.
  4. It looked and sounded like her so much, though!! Her age would tie up, too.
  5. Just got back from this. I enjoyed it, mainly because I was expecting the worst thing ever, and partly because it was the first time going to the cinema with my son. He's almost two and a half and loves Star Wars, and interestingly enough he only has the patience to sit through any of the OT films from beginning to end. We made sure we picked the very last viewing in 2D so that we would have the room to ourselves - that way he could shout and stuff without it being that big of a problem. Anyway, one thing that's bugging me - and I can't find any back-up to this online...
  6. Or in the case of Skyrim (and many others) the worst-case scenario is things never being fixed at all, meaning you have to resort to the PC version. Even if you're not modding at all you still have console commands to restore that one-off quest item that fell through the floor or vanished from your storage for no reason at all.
  7. Both. £22k a year for a video game developer at any point of the ladder is a disgusting insult. To compare I began 2005 with a new web/graphics design job at a local tech campus (Burnley. LOL!) on that exact figure. £25k by the time I resigned (2010).
  8. Same monitor as me. 165hz OC is nice and IPS make the colour/contrast look great. I also won a 1080p 144hz TN Iiyama Red Eagle for coming 1st place at a Mario Kart 8 time trial tournament.
  9. Descent and Azul turned up. Annoyingly Descent has a minor bashed corner (thanks to typically shite Amazon packing) which I'm trying to forget about as sending it back for a replacement seems a bit petty. Once opened I'll try to flatten it with a Duplo block and colour the white bits in with markers. The box for Azul is beautiful, though. Desperate to open it up despite it needing to go under the tree. Am I going to end up with shelves full of these by next year?
  10. Wasn't he being sarcastic with that statement? More cores doesn't necessarily mean better/faster. If that was the case all PC enthusiasts would be on Ryzen.
  11. One of the things I dislike from watching play videos is the miss mechanic. Everyone basically has a one-in-six chance of missing no matter how shit-hot your character is. Does this modify over the course of the game at all? Another irk is the KO. One of the first things I modify into Skyrim is permanent death for all NPCs (none of that temporary knock-out state). I also play Fire Emblem that way, as it gives more weight to your decisions. Not game-breakers, but just things that make me go "hmm..". Really liking Santorini, the more I see of it.
  12. I'll report back in the new year! I'm locked in, pretty much. I've been craving HeroQuest for too long. Besides, Gloomhaven is probably going to require me to groom up the people around me first. We only just discovered 'Labyrinth' (The moving maze, not the Bowie/Henson thing). Super cool and simple game with lots of meta, and thanks to that my wife has caught the bug. My mum is wondering what to get her for Christmas so I'm thinking of telling her to pick a board game. She's Chinese Malaysian and comes from a family of gambling Mahjong degenerates - therefore I reckon Reef or Azul are both solid choices. Santorini (and the expansion) also looks beautiful, and could help bridge the gap over to character/class/dungeon games. I want them all, basically.
  13. I was looking for a copy of HeroQuest but decided against it looking at the prices. I've now gone down the modern-day board game rabbit hole and settled on Descent for my main Christmas present. I've noticed it's not getting much love in here. Hope I'm not making a mistake warming to it... I'd go with Gloomhaven but there's no chance I can get my wife to play something that intense.
  14. No, I let him have it first. Anyways... 11 weeks, 11 kills, 1 trinket.
  15. Let's hope he helps me out in return.
