  2. Colour me excited for this. We know that Remedy tends to keep elements from earlier games around in later ones and this gives off a very Quantum Break vibe to me:

    Dark Souls 3

    Coming Spring 2016 to Playstation 4, Xbone and PC. It's apparently going to be the final Dark Souls game and it just looks like it may well be set in Lordran.
  4. [Edit 16/12/14] Heists have been revealed! Info here: http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/274193-gta-online/?p=10175135 Thought we could do with a seperate thread for this now as it's bound to be very popular to say the least! Here's R*'s faq: http://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/51422/some-more-details-on-grand-theft-auto-online.html Links to the official Rllmuk crews: 360 - http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/rllmuk PS3 - http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/rllmuk_ps3 Couple of basic gameplay mechanics that may not be immediately obvious (spoilered in case you want to find these out for yourself, no mission or story spoilers)
  5. “The devs have taken the best of the deckbuilding and roguelike genres to craft an immensely deep, frustrating, and gratifying experience. Slay the Spire is a perfect example of “easy to learn, hard to master”.” 10/10 – goombastomp “Slay The Spire made me fall in love with deck-building” Rock Paper Shotgun “Slay the Spire is the Roguelike Card Game I Never Knew I Wanted” Waypoint ABOUT MEDIA I've seen this game pop up quite a lot recently and I can see why, I'm about 6 hours in and completely hooked! The only card game I've ever really given the light of day before this was Duelyst and while this is much easier to pick up and play it is by no means any more forgiving. Just now for example I was on an almost flawless run through Act 1 with some of the best items the game was kind enough bestow on me, only for me to get completely rekt halfway through the second act. I've only managed to defeat the second boss during one of the daily runs and it keeps destroying me on the standard quest mode, yet I keep coming back for more. Brutal but fun! So if you're up for a singleplayer card game with easy to understand mechanics that also features a terrific soundtrack then definitely give this a go. I know some of you already own this so I'm curious to learn what strategies you've been using!
  6. Announced at vgas wtf ? Will get trailer and info up as it happens. EDIT- GIFJIZZ TRAILER: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPJaJ5ys_G0
  7. Discord Server I reckon Valve could well start to wrap up the PC game publishing market over the next couple of years. I can't be arsed to buy PC games any more because they cost a bit too much and I just don't generally have time. I don't bother to look at the PC shelf in Game any more. But I've bought 3 games off Steam in the last 4 or 5 months (Sin Eps, Darwinia, X3:Reunion), for which the developers probably got more money than they would from a box anyway. I've hardly played them either, because of the time thing but I don't mind buying something for $20 which I'll just have a quick spin on every so often. It's genius for convenience and price. And the fact that every HL2 or CS:s player is right in front of the advertisig channel is a nice bonus for the developers.

  13. Steam link: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1113000/Persona_4_Golden/ Steam trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3fUvWwZLyo OP: With the Euro release landing this week (Wednesday for SEN/PSN and Friday for brick-and-mortar retailers) I thought that it might be a good idea to get a thread started in preparation for Persona 4 Golden's release. Oh, and Yasawas and Dandy_Sephy expressed interest in seeing a dedicated thread. Released in 2009 on the PS2, Persona 4 arrived very late on Sony's last-gen console, but it's remained one of the most charming and rewarding JRPGs out there and is one of my all-time favourite games. It's a story that revolves around a group of high-school students in Inaba who stumble across an alternate world inside televisions where dangerous creatures known as Shadows roam. A friendly character within this world tells the students that someone has been kidnapping people and throwing them into TVs, and this provides the setup for most of the rest of the game, as the students set about exploring the TV world in order to rescue people trapped there and perhaps get more clues about the kidnapper and (ultimately) the nature of the TV world. The beauty about the Persona games – at least, the later ones – is that they are really several games rolled into one. Exploring the TV world forms the core dungeon grind, but the heroes are still only students, and get up to student-y things such as studying for exams, answering quick quizzes in class, hanging out with friends in a sort of dating-sim lite (without all the creepiness), working part-time jobs that help to boost stats and earn money, fishing for things at the river, accepting occasional sidequests from people in Inaba and more besides. Whilst you get to explore various different dungeons in the TV world, Inaba's available locations largely stay the same, and so variety comes from the in-game calendar. On each new day there may be different people in town that you can spend time with, different jobs available, books being released in the bookstore which you can buy and read at home to boost stats, and more besides. The calendar also serves as motivation to rescue people from the TV world before it's too late. Once you finish your school day and are free to explore the town, you have the option of entering the TV world through a large flatscreen in a local department store, which is the only way to enter dungeons and battle through them to save victims. The dungeon design is perhaps one of my favourite things about later Persona games, since each one is made up of several "floors", with the dungeon getting progressively harder from floor to floor, culminating in a boss battle on the final floor. It gives players a nice way of knowing if they're out of their depth and need to step back a few floors before progressing. Battles aren't random but are triggered in a stealth-lite format; if a Shadow spots you a "!" will appear above them and they'll give chase; if they strike you they will gain a free turn at the start of the battle; however, if you strike them without them noticing, your party gets the opening strike. The battles require you to take advantage of elemental strengths and weaknesses; the eponymous Persona that the students eventually gain are demons that can be summoned in battle and offer a selection of skills; buffs, nerfs, physical and elemental attacks, healing, etc. However, each persona can also be strong and weak against certain elements. If an elemental weakness is exposed on either a player or an enemy, a free turn is granted to whoever exposed the weakness. Therefore, a player who knows certain weaknesses in advance can exploit them one after the other with successive turns, knocking down enemies and potentially earning the chance to do a powerful "all-out attack" if all enemies are downed. In having such a satisfying combat system, giving the player plenty to do outside of the dungeon, and designing each dungeon to get progressively more challenging as the player escalates, it nearly always feels rewarding to play. There are a few difficulty spikes with certain bosses, but things only really get hard if you deliberately rush through dungeons and avoid encounters. Reading back through what I've written it sounds a bit like a review but I really just wanted to provide a primer for people who are new to Persona and want to know what all the fuss is about. If anyone wants to add anything I've missed, feel free. I should just stress that there may be some details I've missed and there may still be bits that will be confusing to newcomers when they get their hands on the game, so I hope that we can get some good discussion going between new and experienced players. I was impatient and ended up importing the US version (and I know others did as well) but if enough people are getting into this for the first time I'll probably start a new game with you all.

  16. --------------------
  17. It's absolutely criminal that this doesn't have it's own thread yet. It's one of the best games in years and one of the best RPGs ever made. It's a kickstarted project which puts many triple-A games to shame, and is storming up the Steam charts. It's currently more popular than GTAV and ARK. It's selling well - half a million so far. https://www.divinity.game/ http://store.steampowered.com/app/435150/Divinity_Original_Sin_2/ https://www.gog.com/game/divinity_original_sin_2 Opencritic (Currently 92%) Metacritic (Currently 93%) It's a classic pen and paper style RPG brought to life with great production values, a fully voiced script, and 4 player multiplayer. I currently have two games on the go, one with a group from work and one with a group of friends, and I'm having an incredible time. Within a few minutes of play you're left wondering why all party based RPGs aren't multiplayer. They all seek to replicate the pen and paper D&D/Pathfinder etc format, but forget the most crucial element - people to play with. Combat is very similar to D&D or Pathfinder, with the crucial twist of systemic elemental "stuff" thrown in. poison, oil, fire, water, ice and steam all alter the playing field in different ways both in and out of combat. To give you an example, an enemies fire spell will set oil on the ground ablaze, which can be put out with a water spell or a telepathically chucked barrel of water. That creates a cloud of steam, which can be enchanted to provide a healing effect to anyone standing in it - and so on. The campaign is very open ended, anyone can be killed or bartered with and the story reacts accordingly. The multiplayer elements work shockingly well too. Any player can initiate a conversation with an NPC, which the other players can observe by clicking on them. Icons show when your party is listening to the conversation. This leads to you having to decide which character will initiate conversations based on their race or persuasiveness. The game uses a 4-character party, but can be played with two or three people. The playable characters are divvied up between the players, so two players could control two each, and three players can take turns controlling the fourth character. Depending on your group, the game can play out like a gnarly tactical combat slog, a casual stroll through a lovely fantasy world with friends, or a gentle trolling simulator. Check out the co-op video below. It's equally good as a shut-yourself-away-for-a-week singleplayer RPG too. Levelling and character building seems wildly open to interpretation, letting you create all kinds of strange synergies. I'm playing a necromantic rogue who uses blood magic to sacrifice their own HP to boost their attack, but then regains HP by attacking enemies. You can go with the straight-shooting tank/dps/healer combo, or get really wacky. There's a guy on Reddit trying to complete the game by building a class who throws barrels at people. Characterisation is clever. You can build a custom character of any race and eventually pick up an assortment of prebuilt "origin" characters to join your group , like most party based RPGs. But you can also select what's called an "origin" character for yourself. By selecting one of the six prebuilt origin characters, you'll inherit a back story and extra dialog options specific to that character. Playing a four player multiplayer game with four origin characters is a blast, you all have a backstory and quests to achieve, and there's nothing to say your goals won't conflict with each other down the road. Each character has their own quest, mine is simply to kill everyone on a list. I also started with a tattoo needle with which I can tattoo my victims names onto my body. Dark. Characters are well written, well voiced acted and quite amusing. They've taken the "Rimmer" approach with some of them - pompous and annoying but equally naive or suffering. As a result they're quite compelling and occasionally laugh out loud funny. One character seems to think you're his slave, and on meeting you accuses you of having the fashion sense of "a monkey in a clown suit" On top of a large campaign, the game has full mod support for additional campaigns. It also have a "GM" mode where a fifth player can create a campaign on the fly and DM it. There's a video of this below. It's also quite popular on Twitch at the moment too. I really recommend getting a group together, picking one night a week you can all make, hopping on a Discord server and throwing yourself in. It also has full controller support (Xbox andPS4). I imagine it'll come to consoles at some point as did the previous game. Incidentally, you don't really need to play the first one to find your feet here.
  18. Full game is out now: https://playvalorant.com/en-gb/ Riot, the developers of League of Legends, have made a new competitive FPS. It's basically a Counterstrike cake with MOBA icing; quite a few of the dev team are ex-Counterstrike pro players. In a nutshell, the structure of the main game mode is: 5v5 24 rounds, first to 13 wins (sudden death if you get to 12:12) Teams take turns to attack/defend bombsites, switching at halftime You buy guns and armour at the start of each round, and carry them over to the next round if you don't die There are 10 different characters who each have 3 unique abilities and an ultimate. All the characters have the same movement speed and buy guns from the same pool. One ability is available to use unlimited times, but on a cooldown. You buy charges for the other two abilities at the start of each round (like buying grenades/smokes in CS) Your ultimate needs 8 charges to be available, which you get from kills and from Ultimate Points which you can capture around the map. There's also a shorter 4-round game mode called Spike Rush in which you buy guns via pickups around the map, and spawn with a different gun each round (a bit like Gun Game in CS:GO). rllmuk online thread here Here's some ex-CSGO pros playing it fairly tactically - it's really interesting to see how the abilities factor in; different characters are better at defending certain bombsites, for example: Here are the same CSGO pros getting absolutely stomped by the dev team, showing off how clever combination of abilities is just as important as sick aim:

  21. PUBG Rllmuk Player Lists for Xbox & PC Here Unlocking on steam early access in 4 hours. http://steamcommunity.com/app/578080/discussions/ The guy made some rather good Arma mods. One of which was battle royale - the basis for this standalone game now using the Unreal engine. "PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS is a last-man-standing shooter being developed with community feedback. Players must fight to locate weapons and supplies in a massive 8x8 km island to be the lone survivor. This is BATTLE ROYALE." From what I gather this version will have 100 people at the start. solo, duo and 4 man squad varieties - last man/team standing wins. The mod was great fun (as are king of the hill and wasteland) but obviously only accessible to arma players which is a fairly small subset of gamers. Arma is a hardcore millsim which puts off a lot of people. Hopefully a standalone game like this can bring the joy to a wider crowd. Will report back with gameplay impressions later
  22. Ahem. Sorry about the late updates - some ISP stuff is happening here and so I’m making do with mobile internet... This month's bundle includes: Observer Forsaken Remastered Steel Rats The Flame in the Flood Project Warlock Details are at https://twitch.amazon.com/tp Install instructions:
  23. Hello! Hollow Knight is a platformer on PC (now), Mac (soon) and Nintendo Switch (sometime this year) and it's utterly beautiful & I'm completely in love with it. Release Trailer: It's a mixture between a metroidvania and a Souls-like; you're exploring a non-linear map which is gated by abilities that your character picks up along the way, while also unlocking shortcuts and collecting & spending "Geos" (souls) which you drop when you die and have to corpse run to get them back or lose them forever. The combat seems tailored towards slow, methodical timed attacks & dodging thus far (I'm 2 hours in, so this might change). I'm finding it difficult but fair, although I'm generally rubbish at video games. Here's a video of me ineptly tackling a mini-boss which I think is a good demonstration of how it mixes the two genres (spoilers for about 3 hours into the game): Up the top-left of the screen are my Geos (the numbered icon) and my Spirit, which you can use to either heal (hold B) or fire a projectile (tap B). You gain Spirit by damaging enemies and Geos by killing them. It's £10.99 on Steam at the moment which is an absolute steal: http://store.steampowered.com/app/367520/ The soundtrack is also very very nice, and you can buy it on Steam or stream it on Spotify. The game was due to come out on the Wii U but it's been moved to the Switch instead and comes out later this year, the release date hasn't been confirmed yet. I'm really enjoying it, there's a great sense of exploration and the combat feels brilliant when you get your timing right. The art-style is beautiful and there's also loads of scenery to smash, which I approve of. You should play this game!
  24. HOT NEWS: Don't have a clue what you're doing? Neither do we, but we found some links from some people who do! Check the hyperlinks in the resources section! We have a Discord for our Ship 2 alliance, courtesy of @Terria and @Willei! Join us for voice chat on PC, as well as discussion and alerts on Emergency quests! https://discord.gg/aX7F9Ka Hi! PSO2's just about to launch Open Beta on X-Box One on PC on May 27th, so I'm opening this up. We never decided on a Server/Ship to play on, so I propose that we on RLLMUK play on Ship 2. As someone who played the JP version, that's where all the western folk played, and old habits die hard. I'll be back with more information, and share a couple of 'getting started' videos from certain Youtubers - but for now, please chew on this mountain of text: Questions and Answers: Resources (WARNING: Spoilered content is potentially out of sync with NA Servers, due to differences in activities and rewards): Making the most of PSO2's F2P model, by RellCesev on Reddit If you're overwhelmed or lost, try reading this - by RellCesev on Reddit PSO2 Builds Compilation (Current NA Version - look into these builds when you have decided how you'd like to play the game!) PSO2 Builds Compilation (Current JP Version - warning, based on classes we don't have yet!) PSO2 Passive Skill Simulator Looking forward to hearing from everyone else playing - If it's popular enough, we can have a Team Room that looks like Pioneer 2 from the original PSO!
  25. Shameless rip off, spiritual sequel or adoring love letter to a bygone era? Who cares! It's a new 2D, top-down Harvest Moon in all but name, made by one guy over four years, with utterly lovely art and tilesets, a wonderful, extensive soundtrack, loads of NPCs with a seemingly large database of dialogue, all the HM gameplay stapes we've come to expect (farming, fishing, cooking, wooing) and all sorts of new elements thrown in for good measure (dungeon crawling, levelling, mining, weapons and armour, decorating, collecting and goodness knows what else). Behold my paltry first crop of summer! Buy some seeds, plant them, water them for a few days, then reap the hot peppers! You know the drill. Either sell them for gold or shove them in your backpack for much needed energy on a dungeon crawling hike. Or give them to one of the NPCs in the hope they'll fuck you. It is taking more than a few hot peppers, I am finding. Die, slimes! I believe I was on a mission for the adventurer's guild here. Yes, the adventurer's guild. Yes, a mission. They paid me in gold coins and I spent them on a pair of sneakers. I am roleplaying a stereotypical lesbian farmer - I thought she'd buy sensible footwear. I have my eye on a girl called Leah. More on her later. Here is another mission I have not yet conquered: Mayor Lewis is a bachelor. He values discretion very highly. In addition to farming, I am pursuing another stereotypical butch pasttime: fishing. That's right, rllmuk! +1 Fishing Rod Proficiency, right here. I can now make a crab pot - or will be able to once I gather the appropriate crafting materials. What is a crab pot? I don't know. And we're talking Animal Crossing levels of fish action here. Not just fish, either - collectables gallore to donate to the museum. KK Slider is filing a copyright infringement suit as we speak. The NPCs all have daily routines and cycles: some serve at shops then bugger off to the pub at 5pm then don't go home until midnight. I waited outside Mayor Lewis the bachelor's home until 1am, hoping to give him a present he'd asked for, and he never came home. Where was he? What was he up to? I have my suspicions. There is a doctor, a publican, a fisherman, a tramp and others. Here is Demetrius the scientist, suggesting I get his wife to show me how to use my telescope round the back: You can build the usual chicken coops and barns and house extensions, but there are other intriguing buildings such as the Slime Hutch: Here you can create slime balls. This building costs 10,000 gold. As you can see, I currently have ... 83 gold. For now, slime balls are a dream. There is a day/night cycle (limited to 2am so far). There are seasons. There are festivals and special events. All the girls refused to dance with me at the summer dancing fair, but I think gay marriage is in, judging by the unisex array of weddable single people - if it's not I'm getting a fucking refund, but we'll soon see. That is all for now. I am trying to get into Leah's house. Updates soon.
