    Brand loyalty

    I vary with Hardware, I used to prefer Microsoft but they have dropped the ball of late (possibly making a big comeback with the developers they are buying up, though.. but it wont be very soon). Lately Sony have had much of my gaming attention due to Tetris Effect and RDR2 but PC is my mainstay. I do have an in-built respect for certain software developers which means Ill definitely ignore the reviews and buy their stuff anyhow (which will burn me one day). But: Nintendo (despite my comments in the Switch Why Not thread), of course make very very good games - in terms of both polish and design and -occasionally- in breaking new ground. From Software, mostly because they are clearly game players themselves and not developing for the biggest demographic and cash return, and seem to be one of the studios still treating Video games like an art form... CD Projekt Red ..as well as these guys. "Judge them by their last game". Will do. Awesome.
  2. I drive so don't need a handheld for traveling (which it does seem ideal for), but as a consequence the horsepower is limited due to battery life so fuck that shit. And its 300 quid.

    Fallout 76 - Prepare Your GaaS Masks

    If price drops are any indicator.. its already £32 on PS4 Curries and various outlets, £30 on Xbox and £24 on PC (via CDKeys). Ouch.

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    It can be learned, for sure. The new Zone thing works well, and adds an extra layer to the strategy. It seems to offer a little leeway too with regards to high scores, as you can mess up a little and still get good points because repairing nearly complete lines is a good way to quickly rack them up in zone mode I find (once you have used the two Tetrises you can set up). Without it could be a retry-a-thon when you miss that perfect drop, get an unlucky run or mess up once.

    63,829 on Normal! The medal is a little ..um.
  6. I bit the bullet and restarted, the snow bit was a chore but it went surprisingly quick- knowing where to go and skipping the cut scenes helps a lot.
  7. If only they had worked 101 hours..

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    I find the talky bits an unnecessary irritant and poorly done- there are terrible examples of voice acting and occasionally properly cringeworthy lines. And if they let Sean Bean live till the end.. fourth wall broken However its not the reason most people buy the game - hopefully after the artificially extended "Tutorial" they are less frequent. But the driving is really exceptional (with the limited cars I have tried so far), so good in fact I have yet to even use fast travel system- its too much fun to blast along to the next event manually. And the graphics. Bloody beautiful.

    Paying to Play 'Early'

    Its also an art form, an entertainment medium, an escape, a story telling tool and a thing people just love to do.

    Paying to Play 'Early'

    Depends on the game, as with some titles it does make a difference. Multiplayer focused games like BF benefit those who are a higher level -but also those with map and game mechanic knowledge. Matchmaking can mitigate this to a degree, but only a little -when the playerbase is 99.99% under level 10 and you are level 25 you will get matched with some. Betas allow this too but are mostly very limited. Anyhow, sending a signal to the majority of your players that they simply don't matter as much as THESE guys here because THEY can afford another 30 quid (or allow themselves to be fleeced) is a shitty thing to do so we shouldn't fucking encourage it.

    Let us celebrate Edge's 25th Anniversary

    Its my 25th anniversary next week, and I actually took a copy of the first Edge with me on honeymoon! I think if I do just few more chores she will let it drop..
  12. The fluidity of the switch out between the pistol and a down-the-sight double barreled shotgun - then a hip shot with the second barrel (About 4:06 in the video), is very smooth. Loved the first, day 1 on the second!

    No Man's Sky

    Yeah, also peeps miss linking the same colour outlines of the upgrade modules to offer better effects, too. Ahem, I did.
