  1. I played it a bit and really like it already!

    Would you like a bit of MASSIVELY LYING MADDEN from before the Xbox 360 came out? Of course you would:

    Nintendo Indie Highlights - 23rd January, 2PM GMT

    Inmost looked like a 'really good one of those' to me. Definitely interested in that.
  4. Just bought this because I feel like some Lotus Esprit-esque action!

    Was that the one where they reviewed a copy without Level 2 in it? If I recall correctly there was a missing level aspect to either the Edge or N64 mag review code, possibly both.

    Synths and Similar - an electronic music gear thread

    The NAMM show is looking like a good 'un this year. I'm keeping an eye on Elektron, who are set to unveil yet another new machine (rumour is it's a digital drum machine of some sort). I'm also thinking about getting an OP-Z. @BedroomBusinessman, how are you finding yours? That AKAI Force thing (basically Ableton in a box) looks great as well, though its price tag of £1,450-ish is pretty extreme. EDIT: The Elektron thing is an entry-level, sample-based 6 track drum machine called Model: Samples. Presumably just the first machine in a new line. Details here: https://www.elektron.se/products/modelsamples/

    Surely we have to mention Filip Muicin, now infamous plagiariser of other people's reviews. He had a YouTube channel that was reasonably successful and then somehow become Nintendo editor on IGN despite clearly not having the skill set. A few months in, he got caught copying a YouTuber's review of Dead Cells. After being sacked over this, he doubled down by issuing a non-apology video (which, hilariously, he monetised), in which he made the mistake of challenging Jason Schreier of Kotaku to find more examples of his plagiarism. The Internet duly delivered, delivering a pretty epic ResetEra thread where loads of examples of his copying emerged, going back years! Maybe he panicked after realising he couldn't do the IGN job properly, maybe he was just a devious sod all along. But whatever the case, his career is in ruin's, IGN's was severely dented for a time, and as far as I know he still hasn't apologised properly and has returned to YouTube.
  8. I got into the beta yesterday and played some stuff. It's clearly an absolutely amazing thing to have on your PlayStation - that being said, I've yet to play a level that would get more than a 2 in Edge (including the ones made by Media Molecule staff). There isn't a barrier to entry here, but there is a definite barrier in learning enough to create something properly good, and I don't honestly know at this point if it would even be possible. Hopefully it's just a matter of time. Personally I'm looking forward to getting stuck into the music editor (assuming I have access to it) to see if it's in any way comparable to a home DAW.
  9. That mini-map, though, man. Ugh. I had a few issues with the game and didn't think it was worthy of the high reviews at the time (it limped to an 8.2 when I reviewed it for Incgamers, IIIRC). I should probably go back to it at some point, though!
  10. Bioshock Infinite immediately springs to mind. Mid-90s on Metacritic, but you couldn't find people saying good things about it for love nor money a couple of years after it came out. The game may have been reappraised slightly more positively among the likes of us following the release of the HD collection, but I'm not sure.

    PlayStation VR

    Barely anything. There are 3 missions (not from the campaign) and a free flight mode, IIRC.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    This is FUCKING AWESOME NEWS.
  13. The big Switch patch isn’t out yet, right? (Custom mode, loads of rebalancing etc.)
  14. One word: SYNDICATION.
