    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Reads like a 10 for sure.

    Jaws, definitely. It's the textbook monster movie template. Also The Lives of Others for me. Particularly the way the ending just rounds it all off. And Life of Brian. Every scene is funny and quotable.

    Dark Souls Remastered - PC/PS4/Switch/X1 out now!

    That's why it took another 5 months.

    Yes, I think it's deliberately intimidating but quite achieveable given a bit of persistence. Particularly in the way it divides its challenge into small chunks. It's all about self-belief and overcoming obstacles that seem insurmountable, so the design fits in perfectly with that.

    If someone wants to make a personal stand about something, why the does anyone else have to moan about it? All this, 'you're not being 100% consistent. you're such a hypocrite' stuff is so tiresome. Perhaps sometimes it's a particular thing that we can't ignore? Perhaps being a 'hypocrite' is still better than consistently not giving a shit? In the end of course it's a token gesture, and individual ethical consumerism isn't going to change the world. You'll need political organisation for that. But if someone just wants to feel that they haven't contributed to something shit by not buying X, then what's wrong with that?

    NieR: Automata

    It's a shame many of the side quests are so dull in terms of the actual activities because they really help to flesh out the world and the game's themes.
  7. Finished the main story now. i think the second half of the game is better than the first, but partly because the first half takes so long introducing everything, so you can just get on with it later. It never got challenging, at least not to the point I ever had a Game Over, but the battles do get more interesting and involve some thought. In hindsight, one reason the first half is so easy is because Anyway, having felt tired of it halfway through, I now feel like carrying on and seeing what else there is to find.

    NieR: Automata

    I think there are optimal combos for each weapon set up, but overall the combat doesn't really develop much. Once you find a good chip arrangenemnt you can just plough through it. But it's far more about what happens and what you do. It's a fascinating world full of fascinating ideas. Worth sticking with it for that.

    Edge #325 - Settle your scores here ;)

    I'm not fussed about Destiny either way. But surely anyone who finds its repetitiveness boring should wonder what they're getting from arguing about it for the 100th time.

    Life is Strange - Season 1 & Before the Storm

    I recently wrote an article about Life Is Strange, or at least about neoliberal ideas relating to free choice and guilt and how they're reflected in the game. It's just been published here: https://medium.com/mammon-machine-zeal/choice-guilt-and-life-is-strange-506f2bd2019b

    Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

    Don't think so, no. It is a terrible start.

    Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

    I think what made it for me was that pretty much everything I tried just worked how I expected it to, and despite all the different possibilities it almost always hung together coherently. And the the Fulton and scanner systems take a lot of the faff out of stealth. Plus it manages to provide plenty of opportunities for slapstick humour, which often seem to have great timing even though they aren't scripted. It's an amazing achievement.
  14. It's never really open, even when it's being vague. You can go back to the medal school, and then head towards Phnom Nomh IIRC.
  15. Glad I didn't take a break from this in the end, because the 'second half' has really picked things up. About 50 hours in now.
