  1. Sonic All Star Racing Transformed

    Loads, the courses in this game are undeniably more a love letter to all things SEGA than the ones in MK8 are to Nintendo. It's pure nostalgia, whereas Nintendo strangely ignore their rich history, comparatively. These tracks just feel like SEGA and evoke feelings of that whereas the Mario Kart tracks feel like... well, Mario Kart I guess. It's not to say they're crap or anything, far from it, it's just the comparative aesthetics of it.

    I got the R reference but I'm hoping it's just that - another knowing nod - because Sonic R was shit. Plus there's a car I'm the tease, which assuages that somewhat. I'm also hoping, probably in vain, that it's just not purely Sonic based.
  3. Sonic All Star Racing Transformed

    Well that's some good timing. Please god let it be Sega and not some Sonic only shitfest though, as mentioned the service they've done to the history of Sega as a whole is what's made the game better than Mario Kart in some ways - certainly with respect to course design and aesthetics.
  4. Sonic All Star Racing Transformed

    Now finished this up on PC - well, as much as I'm able - with 206 stars, first in S class on all GPs and beating all hard TT times (half a dozen expert ones too, but the majority of those really take the piss). Great game, it's incredibly rare that I'll play through something twice in full so that says a lot for how much I've enjoyed it on 360 & PC.
  5. Dark Souls Remastered

    It's a brilliant game, the interconnectedness of it all is a marvel. I do think the areas have a massive drop off in quality towards the end though, I thought Tomb of the Giants was lazy, Demon Ruins was overly sparse and at some point through Lost Izalith I just gave up entirely as it felt more a slog than a wonder.

    River Plate defeated Boca Juniors in the Supercup final earlier, with River keeper Franco Armani earning man of the match due to withstanding a fair assault on goal from Boca by the sound of it. Here he is with the sponsor's award:

    Me too. It still makes me feel ill thinking about it.
  8. Xbox One Console Thread

    Seventy quid for that piece of shit. You'd have to be mental.
  9. Abandoned Games (2018 Edition)

    More seriously, I am actually doing this except I kind of ballsed up the whole thing by just completing a game I've already completed on a different platform anyway And then after that, putting a load of time into a game or two that are effectively infinitely replayable, no wonder I never seem to whittle things down.
  10. Abandoned Games (2018 Edition)

    I read the first line and added the rest to the pile.
  11. Abandoned Games (2018 Edition)

    Are you having a laugh? I could probably finish a game in the time it'd take me to list out all of the fucking things I've got on the pile.
  12. Popular/Great Games you just don’t ‘get’

    While you might not have seen anywhere near it all, you've seen enough pretty quickly to realise if you like how it plays or not. The fun is that it's great for a quick burst, and the randomisation. The less fun is the sheer amount of stuff thrown at you with virtually zero explanation whatsoever. There's a big list of secrets, with no name and no criteria. There's an utterly enormous list of unlockable items, but with no detail other than a tiny thumbnail once unlocked. If you're lucky, it might have a hint in the name or be something that you can work out the function of but a huge percentage of items are utterly inscrutable and yet you have to try remember this stuff every single time you play. It almost kicks you in the face with its wilful obscurity, I own Rebirth on at least three platforms and have played it a lot but there are things that I would have literally no idea about, ever, if I didn't use the excellent BOI: Rebirth app as a reference on occasion. In fact, how all the stats were discovered at all I've no idea, presumably pulling data from the PC version maybe? It screams for an ingame glossary, doesn't have to be in your face and handholdy but one that populates slowly (adding item detail the more times you pick up an item, perhaps) would have been brilliant. I think it's ace regardless, but I can see why a lot of people would not get on with it.
  13. City based circuit arcade racers

    Grid 2 is on Xbox One BC, I seem to recall enjoying the little I've played of it on PC. Series seems to have died since Grid Autosport came out though, that was getting on for four years ago.
  14. Popular/Great Games you just don’t ‘get’

    Peggle. Smash Bros. Minecraft. Don't Starve. Any of the several million Lego games. For games like Minecraft and Don't Starve it's largely down to my complete lack of imagination, I know there's so much you can do but without much in the way of any direction whatsoever I just kind of wander around bit, die, wonder what it is I'm supposed to even be doing.
  15. Help me make a 'mushy' gaming montage?

    What's that game at the end of the test1 video with a deer pushing a train cart or something?
