    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    ‘No food’ is too easy. It should be ‘no arrows’, but Link can throw stones a hundred miles like the monsters do. Except the aiming and firing works like it does with the accuracy of marker pin dropping mechanism on zoom, so you have to play it with your hands upside-down.

    Spec Ops: The Line

    I suppose I’m someone this game was made for, and I find it very over-rated, especially on here. The writing is ‘good for a videogame’ good, as a shooter it’s fairly pedestrian and the bit that everybody raves about as being poignant is, frankly, just silly. You have no choice over it, so it’s redundant in terms of what it thinks it’s conveying. It starts off well, but after the first three or so ‘levels’ it runs out of ideas and becomes a game of shooting men’s hats off. Admittedly though, as a 3rd person shooting-men’s-hats-off-er, it’s a lot of fun indeed. Pretty unparalleled in that department for my money, really.

    I used to hate the cooking, but now I love it. I wait until I’ve got hardly any meals or elixirs then do a marathon session. My favourite thing is seeing the ingredients bounce in the pan! On the poor animals front, I have seen a brown bear once in the game! And I killed it with an arrow while it was sniffing a flower.

    Aside from your hearts and stamina, doing shrines is really about teaching you how to use your various abilities, so it prepares you for the divine beasts and battles. Having said that, I think I tackled the three I’ve done with special arrows.

    Hmm, okay! Not a particularly high bar in either case, although I do like them both.

    If that’s happening, maybe you are trying it too early? Personally I found it pretty easy, but I had spent a long time in the Wild doing shrines and the like before I even attempted a divine beast. Having said that, one of BOTW’s major strengths is it’s completely non-linear, so possibly just not for you.

    I’ve not seen it. Worth a watch?
  8. Yes, I watched Wolf of Wall St on Netflix ages ago. Last year, or the year before.

    Sweet news.

    Many thanks! I am now polishing them off with a lot less hassle. The tip about the Lynel Bow was the clincher, it’s certainly easier to headshot them under pressure with three chances rather than one.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    So I didn’t kill Ganon, I got him right down to the end (I think) and then he started pulling some sort of hologram stunt that was beyond the ken of my drunken mind. I spent the time after my reload roaming the castle knocking off the Guardian emplacements for springs, and was consequently forced into learning how to defeat Lynels - by which I mean I have learned one technique, to shield jump backwards and do the slomo sword flurry. Now I’m back out in the Wild again, I find this technique is not so reliable, especially with the Zebra ones. I can still beat them, but it’s more luck than judgement and I use a lot of meals in the process to keep myself alive. Is there a better way?
  12. This isn’t good news, as I am now wedded to Breath of the Wild, and only play one game at a time. Any chance they could delay it a year or so?

    Neill Blomkamps..... ROBOCOP!

    I don’t agree. However, the Halo 3 film is like the finest six minutes anyone’s ever committed to film, so it doesn’t matter anyway!
  14. I hear that, but I’ve only got so much life to live. There’s too much good telly as it is without giving shows time to warm up. Having said that, I have consumed the entirety of the Hollyoaks content available on the More 4 player. Early eps, inside looks, Hollyoaks does Come Dine With Me - the works.

    Who does the art for that excellent exploding Robocop? Looks like Pander Brothers or something.
