    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - December 7th

    Well bought, kids basically had an orgasm on my return from work that they could play it tomorrow morning. Had a mess and it’s just as incomprehensible as the WiiU version but entertaining nevertheless

    Who here doesn't care about the Switch and why?

    This really is a curious topic - the Switch has two unique selling points - 1) Its a fully portable machine that can play current gen games without too many compromises - so I can play Doom, Diablo 3, Wolfenstein 2, Warframe, Paladins, South Park, Crash and of course a whole host of indie games (Celeste, Gungeon, Hollow Knight), and some ports (Okami, Bayonetta 2, Captain Toad, Donkey Kong) on my sofa whilst the wife watches shit TV, in bed, on the toilet, and well anywhere I want (the WiiU couldn't do that - its range was basically the length of my lounge). 2018 has been a good year for this user case scenario and well worth the cost of entry for me but this a 39 year old married man with 2 kids and limited access to the living room telly talking. My access to gaming time has ballooned since getting a machine I can use anywhere but still plays actual modern console games rather than halfhearted cutdown versions. 2) Its a new Nintendo machine with the latest Nintendo IP - 2018 was undoubtedly a weaker year for this than 2017 but we've still had a fun new Kirby title, Mario Tennis (which I loved), a new Pokemon game and of course Smash (which I wasn't really that bothered about until recently but now finding impossible to resist). If you want just to play games on the big telly with a traditional controller then yes the Switch has had a disappointing 2018 - there still has been some decent stuff but for the depth of the library you can play most of the games on other machines in a more technically competent manner. But you can't play them anywhere you want... If neither of the two selling points appeal than the Switch isn't for you. If its only Nintendo games you want, then well even Nintendo can't keep making every year like 2017 but I get the disappointment. But if you value portability at all in all its shapes and sizes then the Switch is probably the best console ever...

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - December 7th

    I'm very torn - I have the Wii U version and have never had a flipping clue what exactly is going on as the game makes no real attempt to explain its mechanics to you and was very disappointed with the fact there was no real single player mode. The kids adore the chaos and its a riot playing it with them even though none of us really have a clue what we are doing but who needs that twice? So I'd ruled this out. However the single player mode on this looks rather fun, dungeons, RPG mechanic - it might even teach you how to play - and of course the kids are crazy keen to fight with Inklings So now I'm weighing up a SA store download...
  5. Anyone coming into this has to play up to Cause and Effect before expressing a view Trust me you'll realise why

    Darksiders 3 - Fury's Road

    Can only agree - the Dark Souls references are largely lost on me - it does borrow a few ideas, but we are talking about a series which is literally built on stealing a load of ideas from other games and combining them together into its own thing. It really does play nothing like Dark Souls. Anyway a successful evening last night saw me slay Avarice and Sloth - both really genuinely great boss fights and the game really loosens itself into its own groove - basically its Darksiders 1 with an open interconnected map rather than discrete dungeons. The combat is free flowing and once you get a couple of hollows gives you a shed load of options and it has a nice steady run of Zeldaesque environmental puzzles. It just flows really well. Yes the camera is a constant nuisance and its definitely needing some tender loving care on console - something this basic looking shouldn't be struggling on PS4 - jeez the Switch is running Warframe without breaking an undue sweat. And it does have some very irritating moment (there is a special place in hell for those Avarice dwarft things and their traps) but generally it plays and feels like Darksiders. I'm pleased...

    Nintendo Switch

    FWIW I couldn’t get copying over from one card to another work on a Mac even after using that formatting software. I just ended up downloading everything again when I upgraded to a 128gn card

    Darksiders 3 - Fury's Road

    This is really quite surprisingly tricky and intense early on, you can get mauled by a few low level enemies if you don't watch yourself - just my arse kicked several times by the Flame Warden but now discovered he's actually an optional boss so may come back when a bit more levelled. No new update on PS4 as yet but no game breaking bugs for me so far - game is a lot prettier once you reach the sewers and the Hollows but frame rate remains rather jarring. Also whose bright idea was only saving at Vulgrim? (still like it mind)

    Nintendo Switch

    Allegedly it does although some reports that you need to do a little unscrewing

    Is "Game" finished?

    Pretty much yeah - the current gen is 5 years old now. The Vita has been dead for physical releases for years and there hasn't been a new WiiU game in what more than 18 months? They are long gone. I don't take this as any more of a sign that they no one is buying last gen stuff so they are stopping taking on more stock

    Darksiders 3 - Fury's Road

    So just over an hour or so in and thankfully I've not encountered the same bug as @Goemon as I've safely passed the Maker and hunting down Wrath. Having gone from playing Spider-man and God of War earlier this year to this does take a bit of adjustment - its more than a bit rough round the edges and well if you told me it was running on a PS3/360 I'd not be surprised. Pretty sure it looks and runs worse than Darksiders Warmastered which I replayed at the beginning of the year (standard PS4 here). The frame rate and the camera are a bit all over the place and the backdrop for the starter area is both desolate and clearly reusing assets from DS1 (in fact pretty sure its an area from DS1). But it does feel and play like Darksiders - the first one rather than the second - Fury has the same heavy feel as War rather than Death who felt more like the Prince from PoP. The combat feels nice and crunchy and exploring yields lots of scattered items etc. Hopefully it'll open up a bit more as it goes on - the first game didn't come alive until you got to the Cathedral. Enjoying it so far...

    Darksiders 3 - Fury's Road

    Picked my copy up this afternoon so looking forward to getting stuck in tonight!
  13. Its lying to you - probably... (the game is all about psychosis - its messing with your head just as the lead characters voices are messing with her) And no there isn't - its done visually

    Darksiders 3 - Fury's Road

    Well the reviews seem to be saying it’s more Darksiders for better or worse which is all I wanted so I’m in. It’ll be half price by the new year but I want to support the chances of getting another one so pre order is kept.

    Darksiders 3 - Fury's Road

    Fingers crossed. Love this series and so want this to be good. Although the lack of promotion rather feels like this is being sent out to die regardless which does not bode well for the future
