  1. Yeah, I mean, I'm absolutely all over that. It. Comes to something when a Zelda release and a game in which you play an antagonising goose aren't your most anticipated games of the week.
  2. Really want to get on board with this, but it's out at the absolute worst time. Link's Awakening, Untitled Goose Game and Sayonara Wild Hearts are already on my shopping list for this week . Don't let me forget this exists, guys.
  3. Source Code Didn't really click with this at all. It all fine and everything but I couldn't really commit to either the concept or the tension. Felt like the second worst episode in a series of Black Mirror. 2/5
  4. I'll be sure to update with reams of barely coherent commentary in due course. Subject to massive change for the 2019 stuff. There's loaaaaaaads I'm looking forward to in the next few months. Game of the Year A1. Cuphead (Switch) A2. SEGA AGES: Virtua Racing A3. Yoshi's Crafted World A4. Tetris 99 A5. Devil May Cry V Biggest Disappointment of the Year (game, hardware, or anything else) Z1. Team Sonic Racing Z2. Sony E3 No Show Z3. Z4. Z5. Sound Design of the Year S1. Super Mario Maker 2 S2. Cuphead S3. Control Visual Design of the Year V1. Cuphead V2. Control V3. Yoshi's Crafted World Writing of the Year W1. VA-11 HALL-A (Switch) W2. Control W3. Gaming Format (System) of the Year F1. Switch Publisher or Developer of the Year P1. Nintendo Best Supported Game (released pre 2019) of the Year B1. Smash Brothers Ultimate Your game of the year that didn't come out this year (basically what is your favourite game you played this year that came out in 2018 or earlier) X1. Titanfall 2 Best game character of the year C1. C2. C3. Game of the Decade D1. Rez Infinte D2. Rock Band 3 D3. Bloodborne D4. Mario Kart 8 (Deluxe) D5. Mario Odyssey D6. Nex Machina D7. Overwatch D8. Smash Brothers Ultimate D9. Splatoon 2 D10. Virtue's Last Reward (What do you plan on doing with Mario Kart 8, Benny? Are you counting Deluxe as a separate release?)
  5. Performance improved quite significantly after my hour with it this evening on base PS4. I mean, it's still not perfect by any means but it's much, much better to the point I could recommend the game without reservation now
  6. Just been looking back at my top tens throughout the decade...Fuck, its been good! 2010 and 2017 are contenders for the best years ever and I fully expect some absolute classics to fall outside of the top 20 which should get us all deliciously outraged. I'm also going predict that the From Software's games will split the vote and appear lower than expected, resulting in a fierce and bloody war with losers on all sides (except the Bloodborne fans who are right and the best, obvs). Sorry to bog you down in the specific criteria for qualification @Benny, but does SEGA AGES: Virtua Racing qualify for the 2019 awards? I can't quite figure out if it counts in my own head (the thread was a total love in too so it's probably a good one to preempt).
  7. I'm going to do the last three because I'm greedy and they were all fantastic. Ex Machina Looks absolutely stunning with a fantastic dread-building atmosphere. Thought the creator guy was a little too much of twiddling moustache villian but throughly enjoyed being swept along with the various levels of doubt that were introduced to the main character and loved the ending. 5/5 District 9 Descends a little into too much of a straight-up generic action flick towards the end, but despite this I found this to be both hilarious and horrifying in equal measure. I watched on a crowded train and burst out laughing and felt like I was going to be sick within the space of five minutes. Excellent. 5/5 Silence of the Lambs Couple of absolutely phenomenal performances and it doesn't feel like its aged one bit. Bit weird we decided to watch this because we're watching the thematically identical Mindhunter series 2 at the moment, but I didn't find my mind wandering once and this is quite something for me. 5/5
  8. Ha, that's incredible. I showed my kids the reveal this evening and youngest (7) said 'he looks like a buff pokemon trainer'. EDIT: They then also spent the rest of the night saying 'Terence Bogard' in a posh voice and twiddling imaginary moustaches.

    You know, for kids.
  10. I'm playing on vanilla PS4 and they're pretty bad to be honest. The quality of the game is just about managing to override the performance issues but it is annoying (and I'm not normally all that sensitive to these things).

    Do we not think it's more likely that this means a Sunshine Kingdom (probably Delfino Plaza) coming as DLC rather than a Sunshine remaster? Given how Odyssey ends I think I'm right and will accept your adulation now.
  12. Word of warning on Superbeat: I just could not get on with it on the Switch due to the asymmetrical nature of the controller. I found it incredibly disorienting, which is a shame, as the game seems pretty nice. Have they patched the DOOM games yet or are they still an affront to humanity? I've only ever played the first on the SNES roughly one billion years ago so I'm not a massive snob about it but would rather not play something that's going to give me a poor impression.
  13. And once we know, we will all be ashamed of our thoughts and deeds.
