  1. Woah, that's uncanny. Also, it's incredible what a coat of paint can do
  2. 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.
  4. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Every day is video game day in my house!
  10. 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.
  11. I love the atmosphere of this thread, it's just so fresh and different from the average discussion on this board
  12. 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.
  13. I love a lot about video games. I really love it when a video game has great music that helps lift the atmosphere and is fitting of the general theme of the game. Same goes for the visual style, whenever a game has a style that I find perfect for what it aims to do, I’m a happy puppy. Few things are more satisfying whenever I get to play a game that just feels right as soon as things starts moving. I just love it when the controls feels so good you don’t ever have to open the settings menu to check which button does what. What I like the best, though, what I really love is when a game comes along and does all of the above just right, where everything looks, sounds and feels perfect and you can even forgive its few shortcominga as adorable, now that’s what I love!
  14. Fair enough, I don’t have any insights to any of your claims but if what you say is true I can understand why you’d hate the administration behind Roblox.
  15. Just watched the last episode of Sweet Tooth, based on the premise and the trailer I didn’t think I’d like it very much but I found it very entertaining. A bit predictable at times but beautifully shot and generally very well acted. 8/10
  16. How can you literally hate Roblox? Sure, I’m not spending any time on it myself but some of the games you can play in Roblox are actually really good.
  17. I must admit that I kinda agree with this. When I first entered the thread and watched the trailer I got very excited. Then I was reminded about a fairly similar game I got for the PS4; Crossing Souls. Personally I found Crossing Souls a tad better than the general critics did (66% on meta) but it failed to live up to how cool the trailers made it look. Crossing my fingers that this will be better.
  18. Finished this and loved every second. An instant classic for me and a nigh on perfect experience for what it is.

    It’s more like a glorified walking sim than an actual game. If you’re looking for a challenge or hand to eye coordination mechanics, this ain’t a title for you.

    My session was supposed to be a quick look, max half an hour. Ended up playing for a few hours straight. I think I’m on the home stretch now and if the game can finish off on a high it might end up with a perfect score for me. This is basically Journey - The SciFi Space Opera edition, I’ve had goosebumps during a lot of the set pieces and some of the jokes are actually hilarious. This came out of nowhere for me and it’s hands down the best game I’ve played all year.

    I always thought that was the entire premise of the game, really shitt controls for hilarious results.

    About 20 minutes in on The Artful Escape and I’m loving everything about it so far. Now I’m just praying it will be as excellent as I hope it is.
  23. I'm very happy with my Series X but I watched this video last night and while the product shown here isn't for me (the PS5 is far too big and clunky for me to be bothered) he mentions there will be a similar version released for the Series S. If the price is right and it turns out to be a reliable setup, I'm tempted to get an S just to pair it with this screen.
