  1. Monday Night Combat, so much better than any other day of the week.
  2. Woah, that's uncanny. Also, it's incredible what a coat of paint can do
  3. I liked the PS2 design as well, thought it looked a bit futuristic and reminded me a bit of Silicon Graphics workstations. PS3 on the other hand, possibly my least favourite console design ever.

    I held my breath reading your post, the lack of punctuation nearly suffocated me On a more serious note, I love that you stand up for your views but you don't have to come out and defend them. If you find joy in Skatebird, well good on you. I tend to find joy in games that the majority writes off as bad to average and I couldn't care less what other people think. For some reason, a lot of people on here are triggered when someone goes against their views on something and goes off on a lecturing spree for reasons I can only imagine. Whenever I stumble upon a game that I really like I try and write about it on this forum, partly as a recommendation and as a heads up in case people might not have heard about the game. Over the past month I've written about and praised Last Stop, Omni and The Artful Escape but for each game it never took more than a handful of replies before someone disagreed, it's as if different people have different taste. Go figure. PS: Good luck with the surgery PPS: Personally I found Skatebird shit.
  5. Weird, was actually thinking about this game the other day. One of my favourite free games ever.

    I Am Fish was supposed to be my game for this weekend but after playing through a couple of levels I’m done with it (not completed it). Controls are shit and isn’t helped in the slightest by the omission of inverted camera controls, rendering the game nearly unplayable for me, but even if it had inverted camera I’d still struggle with the really annoying feel of the controls. Too many instadeath traps for my liking too. Shame, as it did look rather charming.
  7. Same here, I got told off on here when I mentioned I’d started on Odyssey as the bloke, so after 7 hours I restarted and never regretted it.
  8. Anyone got this for Xbox Series? Was wondering about the performance and wethere it’s buggy? Heard rumours that the PC version can be a bit buggy at times.
  9. I've given up on trying to plan my purchases ahead of release, there's been so many good games during this year that pops out of nowhere that I'm happy with going with the flow as stuff is released. A lot of this is pretty much a result of Game Pass getting some really nice games, and going in blind is half the fun for me. With that said, I must admit I'm quite excited for Metroid Dread, Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite. The newly released Tales of Arise also seems like a game I'll love so I've added that to my wish list. I'm pretty sure there will pop up quite a few games that will please me before the end of the year, so I can't say that I think the "games season" is looking thin in any way.
  10. Every day is video game day in my house!
  11. I can't disagree with this, it really doesn't take itself too serious (and all the better for it) and this game is a perfect bite sized piece of entertainment that really did manage to entertain me from the opening scene to the closing credits. It's now all too rare that I mange to finish a game with a big grin on my face, utterly satisfied with what I was given. I do, of course, appreciate the epic adventures we're given with some of the AAA games but a lot of those seems to trend towards outstaying their welcome by padding out all the progress with meaningless fetch quests and an endless grind for materials you need to upgrade some gloves that grants you the possibility to pick a flower without dying or something silly like that. I mean, I do like epic quests but to send me on a six hour trek just to be able to pick a flower or catch a fucking trout doesn't make me smile very often. In less than the average length of, say, a main story quest chapter in Ass Creed Valhalla, The Artful Escape has taken me on a journey through the birthplace of the main protagonist and then sent (spoilers ahead) This is of course not an apple for apple comparison but I'm happy that there are developers who still focus on making games that aims to simply entertain, even if it is for a brief few hours.
  12. I love the atmosphere of this thread, it's just so fresh and different from the average discussion on this board
  13. Been thinking about this since I completed it on Friday, it really has left me with food for thought. What if a band/artist premiered an album using this format, letting the fans explore the themes and deeper meanings via an audio visual journey in a way a booklet or music video could never promote the material at hand.
