Supposedly it's a good 3D metroidvania with psychic powers.

The trailer that loaded up reminds of Prototype which I loved before it got to hard for me but that is more open world than this looks like.

Control got a pretty good critical reception last year but personally I didn't like it that much (Despite finishing it).

It's a solid third person shooter with a cool, weird atmosphere. But I thought the world building was half-baked and the combat options were a bit too limited. I didn't like the weapon system. Also dying and reloading was a real hassle. First of all the load times are atrocious, especially when you keep dying over and over because you're trying to complete a jumping puzzle but on top of that you respawn at checkpoints which, like souls games, can be few and far between. It just sucks all the fun out of the game dying and spending three minutes getting back to where you where, then dying again and again and...

Just being a good friend, talking a good buddy back from the ledge. He had a bad day.

some background: this was a weird one, obviously a glitch, because these deer flee you like you are a bear with a bazooka that shoots more bears. I was all like, wtf! and damn, what great timing for this glitch to happen.

PlayStation event announced for this Thursday. Unfortunately it's focused on PS4 and VR.

Wouldn't mind a PSVR2 tease.

The world building is half baked? To me that was by far the strongest aspect of the game.

I found it flimsy and limited.

All the supernatural stuff seemed limited to sympathetic thaumaturgy, quirky stuff that had material anchors.

I'm watching the latest "War table" about the upcoming Avengers game. I still hate most of the characters design, primarily their ugly faces and character models, but the gameplay actually looks really solid if you're into the modern concept of"live games". I hope that over time they lean more into comic book Avengers.

I want to check out the open beta next weekend but I think I may actually want to buy into this if the reviews are positive.

Spiderman, a base part of the game, is a Playstation exclusive. Not Playstation can pay more to get spiderman or anything, but a base part of the game is cut out for xbox and PC.

I will not support the Avengers game, even though it looks like something I would enjoy.

Eh. There's a large character roster. Sony owns the rights. Spider-Man is not a "base part" of the Avengers. He's a hang around.

Links Awakening is so much fun.
So that's the story. And what was the real lesson? Don't leave things in the fridge.

It is. I loved the art style.

Have you tried out Cadence of Hyrule? That was even better.

Oh, ffs.

Sony owns feature film rights to Spiderman.

That's it. They have no other IP clout.

Stop perpetuating this weird myth.

Sony is paying a pretty penny extra to give their version "extra value" & trying to associate Spider-Man (one of the most popular super heroes ever) with their console.

But they don't own any rights to decide what games he can, or can't be in.

See if this works. He's got that movement just right, which highlights why it looks so weird in games.

Outer Wilds is a wonderful and intriguing game.

Rockstar has finally revealed what they've been working on in the lead up to Warner Brother's event August 22nd.

It's Suicide Squad:



Don't know what to think.

On the one hand I don't really care about Suicide Squad and supposedly it's a Games as a Service affair.

On the other hand it's Rocksteady. If anyone could have a chance against Destiny and Bungie, it might be Rocksteady.

It's a really cool game everyone should try.

I bounced off it though because my brain started to melt from trying to keep track of all that information and the rocket ship controls drove me nuts.

Watched NerdCubed do a playthrough instead and it was brilliant. There's a lot of stuff I'd never have understood or put together with out a guide. Probablt one of the smartest games I've ever seen.
