@Baze: Thinking I'll go for the ps4 version to play it on ps5. Someone took the Japanese version and took loading tests. Stuff that loads 30seconds on Switch, 15 seconds on ps4 are instant loads if you play it on the ps5 ssd. Much smoother fps too.
Maybe fans would have given the reboot a try if the devs didn't insult the originals. Calling them "embarrasing" even going going so far as to photoshop DMC4 Dante into a Brokeback mountain picture to try show how" lame" he is. And yet the games media gave that a pass even though if any other dev did that they would have been crucified for being homophobic. Also...sniper rifle abortion...
Going out of their way to insult fans and the original games backfired. DMC5 sold more in 3 weeks than DmC did in 7 years.
Either way, good game, bad Devil may cry. Should have been it's own thing.
Still enjoying this but it's a game of two parts, with the first half feeling fresh for the IP (albeit generic with respect to other games) and a second half closer in feel to the first game. My biggest issue is how long you could spend exploring optional encounters (which are fantastic) in Chapters 3/4 and how that clashes with the plot urgency. Spend too long in the open-ish chapters and you'll find youself settling into that all-too-familiar routine of clearing out areas, returning to safe house, crafting/upgrading, heading out to clear another area. That formulaic routine is at odds with what The Evil Within does best - flinging the player from nonsensical location to nonsensical location. Still a solid sequel though I'd still rate the original slightly higher (especially if you include the DLC).
I was loving the game until my first encounter with a certain old white haired enemy. Snuck up for a stealth kill, just to have the MF turn around and eat my face. Just noped right out and got clean underwear
Genshin Impact - AR33, the new mode they added for crucible is awesome, great to have 4 characters unloading ultimates everywhere. Done with all the story quests so now I'm just focusing on levelling up characters and equipment.
Decided to have a look at Iron Harvest, since I haven't played an RTS in ages. It's... ok. Feels like a mix of RTS and the old Commando games. Biggest issue I have is that you control "clusters" of units, and getting them all to take cover or move efficiently is a pain.
Been planning on replaying this for ages now (and wanted to try out the vaguely narrative-linked DLC) and it's still so, so good. How Creative Assembly, a dev best known for their RTS games, managed to create one of the best Alien games I'll never know. It's slow-burn, goes on a bit too long, and Alien RNG can feel unfair in places, but I can't think of another game that captures the feel of inhabiting the Alien universe so well.
The Last Door - Complete Edition
A random horror pick as it was on sale, but turned out to be a damn good episodic, slow-burn, Cthulhu-esque point-and-click adventure that plays just fine on console thanks to the simple control scheme and limited inventory juggling.
This was a game I wanted to pick up at launch, missed it with other games and work vying for attention, and forgot it until MS hyped up its launch on the Game Pass service (and I figure it's suitably horror-vibed for October having demons and all).
It's not quite what I expected from the sequel, going from a narrowly-focussed FPS to throwing in several new gameplay mechanics, packing the maps with even more to find, a more complex progression system, and third-person story cutscenes that feel so out of place. However, it simultaneously feels like they've committed to a pure arcade-like arena shooter with all those other elements feeling like a veneer they know you'll see right through. Tthe movement and gunplay is still outstanding. but I currently prefer the more cohesive DOOM (2016).
Won a copy of Death Stranding. Thought I would just give it a go...
After 30 minutes I called my wife and restarted, so we could WTF? together.
Graphics are astounding. Still trying to figure out the actual gameplay (game starts very slow) but great stuff.
The use of the camera is so unique! Really feels like you are a character in the game
I knew it was glitchy going in, but took a chance.
Unfortunately, I only got just about halfway & then it died
Every time I played, it crashed. Game saves often, & it crashed while it was autosaving & I lost everything
Was fun while it lasted, can't help but remember the Jaws PS2 game being a bit better.
Only real difference between the two games, is being able to level up your shark.
Chopping wood & gambling, to try get some money!
Practicing my kung fu, cause apparently its "not good enough"!
But at least I'm making some progress now.
Some facial animations look realistic, some okay & others completely cartoony
Watch Dogs Legion - The Game is good so far, cant wait to try it out on a ps5 , Graphics are okay for Ps4 . The sound when driving cars or bikes is a little disappointing, all the cars and bikes sound electric . Fun factor is there, enjoying playing as anyone and combat is really done well, take downs are fun, lots to explore, defiantly better than WD 2 .
Genshin Impact - Hit AR40 a while ago but can't really ascend anymore characters till 45 or 50 so for now just focusing on other characters and getting them levelled up. Looking forward to next weeks update.
Mafia Definitive Edition
Good looking remake, but with some graphical glitches here & there.
Cars handle well, considering they are from the 1930s. Combat is fun.
THAT race took me around half a dozen tries to win.
Last lap, last stretch the one guy comes out of nowhere & just blows by you.
You got to check behind you, & cut him off before he can pass you.
Destiny 2- beyond light - Playing this on the Xbox series S and its free with the game pass, I had to transfer my character from my ps4 account to the Xbox, what a pleasure its been to play on the series S , hardly any load times and looks beautiful on my 4k TV. Really enjoying Destiny 2 again, been ages since i played and wow has the game improved .
