    Battlefield V

    So annoying trying to load panzerstorm, only for the game to immediately load another map since that game’s over. How difficult would it be for dice to actually put a time showing how long a map’s been played for, at the very least?? That’s another 5 minutes of my life I’m not getting back at it loads panzerstorm, loads the next map, then has to load the menu again.

    It’s like they want you to have the least fun possible playing their game- can’t even begin to understand what kind of person who sets these goals. Certainly no one who’s ever played the game.

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part

    I was really disappointed with this. Barely laughed at all, and it just felt it was missing all the amazing originality of the first. And since the real life element is known, the pay off was really obvious. Think the biggest comment I could make is that I’d happily sit down and watch the original right now, having watched it probably about 10 times already, whereas I’m not bothered about seeing this again at all. Lego Batman and Lego Ninjago (the latter I enjoyed far more than I thought I would) are both far funnier and better movies for me.

    You can use the left trigger to switch between those different active commands that you activate with y or whatever ps4 controller button. Yeah it does hit you with a lot of stuff early on- I keep forgetting I have focus mode, and also links now too. I’m not sure when/why you’d use a link over individual magic spells though, since it uses up all your magic bar?

    Super realistic WW2 soldier simulator then!!

    Battlefield V

    Surely this will lead to a case of diminishing returns though, as once-bitten, twice-shy consumers are less inclined to purchase these kinds of games in the future? I’m guessing that’s why sales of this weren’t great after Battlefront 2.

    Battlefield V

    I guess we can probably put that down to poor sales just like Battlefront? Without any DLC to get more cash, it’s going to be a case of diminishing returns- surely most people by now will have bought the game if they were going to, and this news certainly isn’t going to encourage new purchasers. That’s the problem with this business model of drip feeding free content over time and expanding the game though, surely? If people see the game isn’t really ‘complete’ on release, they delay buying it, then poor sales mean the plans for content have to be scaled down.

    Kingdom Hearts 3

    This is still feeling a bit of a letdown so far- there are quite a few boss battles where you don’t really feel in control, and victory is just down to luck and persistence rather than skill. Control in some of these feels muddled, and since you have to attack a lot of the big enemies in mid air, it feels like you’re flailing around. I haven’t completed many of those feeling like it was down to my ability. Also the airstepping mechanic where you zip to an object in midair is total rubbish, especially when you combine that with boss battles. The early environments feel really boxy and inorganic too- it actually feels like a remastered last gen game than something you’d expect to come out now. They’re crisp and clean, but it feels like you’re in a sterile game rather than an imaginative yet real environment. One of the reviews I read said the game made the reviewer more glad he’s got a 4K TV for this than Red Dead Redemption 2, and so far that comment just feels laughable.

    Xbox One Console Thread

    Yeah I just panicked too, but then figured something might be up with MS when I couldn’t load their help page for tips on how to fix black screen issues!

    Kingdom Hearts 3

    The most obvious solution is just to omit that character from the scenes entirely though, surely? That’s got to be a better solution than having them present but jarringly avoiding a voice actor, and it’s not like they add anything by being there (otherwise they’d really need to be voiced anyway). And some NPCs have text boxes, so they’re still there in some form. It’s a little thing, but it just seems like a strange decision to take. My only other criticism is that the game begins in a weird way narratively- it’s slightly like the other games never happened as Sora sets out. Plus, the first world visited provides a really boring, generic environment. I’m looking forward to the others, and I’m sure it’ll get better, but it’s not exactly an amazing start.

    Kingdom Hearts 3

    Makes me laugh when they spend so much money on the game and take so long to make it, but in the first world, they obviously didn’t want to pay for one of the film characters to be voiced, so he just nods and remains mute throughout all the chaos.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    Don’t think so- doesn’t do it for any other games, and the black screen after switching to the map is a common bug reported online. Seems to happen more often if you switch to the map soon after loading the game.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    This is certainly one least stable AC games in a while- getting tons of frozen black screens on the Xbox, either when bringing up the map screen, or handing in a mission. Seems like lots of people have the same crashes too. Even more galling when it takes so damn long to load, even on Xbox One X.

    And assignment tracking still isn’t working. I get to 3/4 explosive kills, get another one and I’m back to 1/4. How can they get something so simple wrong?

    Battlefield V

    Is the multiplayer menu broken for anyone else now? I click on play, and then multiplayer, and I get a screen with just text saying squad conquest, grand operations and conquest, and that’s it. No kind of graphics in the panels, and no options for search or anything like that?
