  1. Anyone on the Autochess bandwagon? Just been playingDOTA Underlords and really into it. Good format, even if the games take way to long (45 mins). Underlords was the classic Valve rip off of Dota Auto Chess but also League of Legends has one modded called Teamfight Tactics. Classic simple to learn, bugger to master format. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-06-27-which-is-the-best-auto-chess-game-for-you-heres-our-handy-guide-to-the-major-players Curious to know if anyone else has dabbled?
  2. So it's either 9.99p/m or you buy the games outright. Launch titles look pretty good too. FM2020 seems the ideal game for this where fps doesn't matter. I've got the pre-order as I'm a compulsive buyer, hope it's not s**t! Launch games Edited formatting
  3. Sky just had the 13/14 EFL season review on before the Everton Burnley game. Great memories on that one (particularly the playoff final for a Derby based supporter :D).

    So I finally completed it last week and have some very positive and negative experiences which kind of reflect the queries above. Probably the last game I've played through without distraction from any other game since Witcher 3, I really enjoyed it. There are four endings and not sure I have the stamina to go through this again however. I found the combat a lot more fast paced and challenging than the Souls games which was a positive. However, the "skill" progression and equipment is way short of what I was used to on Souls games. This goes two ways, yes it's nice to not faff about grinding for items and it's good to just play the game (reminds me of Jade Empire and it's fantastic lack of any items, what a game...segway) but I do feel this game missed out by not having the collecting element. Yes there are upgrades to your prosthetic tools, but I didn't find this an adequate substitute. They have just issued a patch to make the skills easier to unlock which might make this lack of items less of an issue. The world is so much nicer than the Souls world and it's nice to actually play this type of game in a bright environment as Dark Souls was rather dark (no sh**t). The story is typical with the series ie not really having a clue what's going on similar to Dark Souls the first play through. Really enjoyed it, not as much as Dark Souls 3, my favourite, but I found it challenging, fun and one of the few gaming experiences where you felt really pleased when you beat a boss. Not throwing shade, but I gave up on Red Dead recently as it was so easy I lost interest completely. The challenge was what kept me on this. I would have said if you like Dark Souls games then you'll love this, but I've seen a few people who didn't get into it so hard to advise either way. Bit of a mix, the last boss (whom I won't name as it's a spoiler) was significantly harder than anything I've fought in any of the Souls games or Bloodborne. As with these games, once you've figured out the mechanics to beating the boss, it's just a matter of execution which is significantly easier said than done. Where it is easier, is that levelling up and obtaining new items doesn't really slow you down. As a result, you can tackle almost anything from the off which is something you can't really get away with in Souls. I'd probably nudge Sekiro as harder, as I'm re-playing Dark Souls (I picked up the remastered version) and found it surprisingly slow and easy to boss dodge. Another thing edging Sekiro on difficulty is that it's quite tricky to lure enemies away like you could in Souls to get group fights down to 1 on 1. Saying that, the stealth element of the game means you can execute someone and then hide for a minute and then repeat. I'd definitely stick with it, I only really got into this game after the first boss (the guy on the massive horse following the chase by the huge snake). It was also quite a good game to pick up and put down again. I'd usually just do an hour or so a day or whenever I cleared a mini-boss or found a new checkpoint. With regards to the platforming, I wouldn't worry too much about that. It's a means to an ends of traversing the world and isn't really an integral part of the game so isn't a key thing to get good at or do too often.
  5. Such a good performance. Playing to our player's strengths and it's so obvious that everyone knows what their roles are. So nice to be looking forward to us play again which the best compliment I can give for the last few performances. Top performances all around. Especially nice to see Wes bag again (first time ever he's scored in successive games!).

    Always here to disappoint!
  7. Anyone else played this yet? Spent the last few days on this and developed a predictable love hate relationship with this game as I did with all the Souls games. Very very challenging causing many rage quits but also immense satisfaction when you clear an area. There's an interesting discussion within the community about the games difficulty (it only has one setting) and whether it being so hard is excluding members of the community. Personally it's the challenge that I love and makes the game rewarding but do sympathise, as there are people (my 58 year old dad who likes games), who'd never progress past the intro area. Like to hear if anyone else has got it and how they're finding it as I'm hooked.
  8. Agreed. Be interesting to see whether they pitch it as "the console alternative" or a complete package. Having Odyssey ported shows Ubisoft are at least on board. During the presentation that id (Bethesda) did, they said they ported over Doom in a matter of weeks so hopefully it's not too much of a burden. Can't see developers handing over titles to a subscription service, maybe more of an Amazon Prime with a subscription and then additional paid for content. It's an interesting year ahead regardless. Also it seems to be a service which actually suits most of the big players. If Microsoft are slowly moving to a similar system, that leaves Sony with a bigger share of the home console market and Nintendo firmly with the portables. Can see each of the companies being reasonably happy to keep their respective markets.
  9. Is Survival mode in there? That was my highlight in the original.
  10. I'm really fascinated to try this as I'm convinced this is the future of more than just gaming . I think the BBC did a poor job articulating the key points of Stadia as its value isn't the "Netflix-esque" games library, it's the removal of the requirement of hardware from the home. Datacenter based hardware processing is far more efficient as the noise, thermals, size and power issues domestic consoles have to consider are consigned to the bin. Also, when games are released requiring a bit more grunt, gone are the days of updating to a new console for £500 a time. I got to try Oddysey when I was working in American on project stream and its very very smooth to play and given they've stated it'll be improved further, I'm excited. Also, no more game installs or updates ever again as the software is on the server side! They also explained that hosting these things server side means that the multiplayer aspect of games can be scaled up massively. 1000 player PUBG anyone? Also, no cheating if the games are run on a server and not locally, like good old fashioned MMORPGs. Microsoft are probably launching this exact same thing in a few weeks so it'll be interesting to see what they can offer that Google can't (ie xbox back catalogue). Whilst it looks flashy, it has to work and I'm hoping it works as promised as this is potentially a massive change in gaming. #PrayItAin'tS**te
  11. Not a fan of United but even I was pleased to see them progress, decent bottle from Rashford. Personaly don't think it should be a penalty, but after they gave it against Otamendi they've at least been consistent. Also Neymar's attire made it even sweeter.

    2 and a bit weeks in and she's been uninstalled already. Ignore any positive thoughts I had in opening post! I agree with pretty much of the above posts. Incredibly pretty game but to call it stale is an understatement. Very repetitive combat, short and dull story. No doubt they'll improve it, but that's not a reason to release such a beige game in the first place. Bioware have really run out of ideas and it's painful to see to see as KOTOR 1&2, Dragon Age and Mass Effect 2 are gaming highlights of mine. Agree with Z, warframe is superb. Avoid.
  13. Confession here, big fan of flight simulators too. Currently using Prepar3d v4.4 to fly the PMDG 777 which is my favourite modded plane on either P3D or FSX.
