    Binary Domain

    Vanquish isn’t fit to lick Binary Domain’s boots.
  2. Yeah it’s pretty much his most telegraphed attack, just keep your distance and let the chump run around the pillars. A single hit after every move and you’ll make short work of Super Smough, and it’s muuuch easier to kill Ornstein first because he’s always up in your grill.

    Resident Evil 2 Remake!

    I saw a bit where Leon inspected a fuse box so I presume turning the power back on is either one of the objectives or something you can choose to do on a room-by-room basis like burning the crimson-heads in REmake.

    The Last of Us Part 2

    I'm going to assume Shadow of the Tomb Raider probably won't have extended torture scenes and explicit disembowelments with rag-doll intestine physics, though. I agree that depictions of violence are sliding scale, but Tomb Raider takes place in the same cartoon universe as Uncharted and is a null comparison IMO. As someone who owns his fair share of Fulci films, I do think they may have misjudged this. The violence doesn't come across as sharp and shocking like it did in the original, instead it seems gratuitous in the same way Manhunt was. In Manhunt it was intentional, but with this I'm nowhere near as sure that's what they're going for.

    E3 2018 and not a f*** was given

    Sony do seem to leaning hard into a somewhat misjudged level of violence (IMO) with their first party games, but Microsoft spent time on a game that was literally Zelda with an adorable fox. Two of their biggest first party titles were Ori 2 and Cuphead. If you're missing stuff like this it's because you're not looking.

    Halo Infinite

    Santa Monica used Guerilla’s engine for God of War didn’t they?

    Halo Infinite

    You've still got the best levels of the game to come, but yeah, he's total shite. I don't know how you did him the first time but it's worth mentioning that he does take damage from shooting his head as well as his back, something I genuinely didn't realise until the end of the game.

    Halo Infinite

    This may be total bollocks but I remember hearing that one of the reasons for 5's bizarre and lacklustre campaign was that they were originally planning for it to be a more ambitious planet hopping Mass Effect/Infinite Warfare style affair, but after chopping all of that out all we were left with were those weird 60 second find-the-NPC levels. Combined with the overt forced co-op focus I can see how one version of 5 may have initially looked like Destiny with an actual plot, where you'd squad up and choose missions from a map.
  9. I have a strong tolerance for offence but Kick Ass 2 was just a pointlessly horrible and nihilistic film, wasn’t funny in the slightest. I gave Vaughn a pass for that on the basis that despite being involved he didn’t personally direct it, but then Kingsman 2 turned out to be just as bad. Couldn’t be less interested in any of this.
  10. Think they’re gonna end up nerfing that hologram one, three active decoys at once feels like at least one too many. Within hours of the update being released we were regularly finding the smaller objective rooms full of holograms which all show your position if you hit them, and it’s not a game where you have many opportunities to think twice.

    Xbox One X

    My launch headset has packed in, and I’m loath to pay £20 for another flimsy bit of plastic. Any recommendations? Doesn’t have to be cheaper, just roughly the same price and decent. Seems like there’s quite a lot out there for £30 or so these days.

    Crackdown 3

    Less than a year away then, so I expect there to be plenty of proper footage of it this time.

    Crackdown 3

    Resident Evil 2 & 4, Half Life 1 & 2, Deus Ex, GTA5, Red Dead Redemption, Breath of the Wild... some of the most highly acclaimed games of all time have had delays. That said, there are also plenty of Duke Nukem Forevers.
  14. I had the exact same reaction Simmy, and it was compounded by how long it used to take the dodgy servers to find each game. If by chance you’re on Xbox you should us for some casual games, if anything it’s even funnier when everything goes wrong. Great news about the patch, I did find it odd that a game still getting such active support hadn’t been enchanced yet. Same situation with BF1 on the Xbox, it has a Pro patch and was still getting DLC until recently.
  15. The base operators are all unlocked from the start now, so he won’t need to worry about that. I initially bought this in a sale a few years ago, but was working such unsociable hours at the time that I didn’t give it the time of day. I finally went back to it recently on a whim and I’m hooked; it’s so utterly superb that I’ve managed to convince several of my friends to buy it as well, particularly since they’ve lowered the barrier of entry for the base game and sorted all the server issues that put me off it initially.
