    Astro Bot - PSVR - Game of the year 2018. No question.

    I’d rather play sitting down, but was thinking it might be awkward to dodge and headbutt stuff while sitting.

    I'm on world 3 now and so far it's been astonishing. Does everyone play standing up?
  3. For me, the PS4 version was worth it for 60fps. I'm not bothered about visual changes - I didn't notice any of them apart from the bonfire effect looking a bit more generic/bland than I remembered.

    Biggest discrepancy in gaming - your opinion Vs everyone

    The Arkham games (at least the ones I've played - I've never played the first) are a bit dull. I've played through more than half of both Arkham City and Arkham Knight but just couldn't get on with them for some reason. I can see they're good, well made games with lots and lots of effort put into them, but I just find them unengaging for some reason.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I’d prefer a Firewatch style map. You have to open it in front of you and it doesn’t have an arrow or any icons on it. A map and a pencil.

    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    Seeing as the adverts don’t load half the time (on my console) along with the app icons, they might be better off just sticking ads on the lower section of the home screen - like they do with other shit. As much as I hate ads.

    I just don't understand why streaming apps have their own app you have to open first. It makes no sense - it's not like they're going to clutter the home screen, you'd just bung them in a folder.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Early reviews didn't score that well either. The Official PlayStation Magazine (which had an really early review copy) gave GTA 3 an 8/10 in a short half-page review IIRC. By their standards of giving any old shit 9s and 10s, an 8 was pretty average. Edge gave it a 6. I really loved the first two games so bought it on release. I remember playing it all day and being pretty amazed. It's a shame, but I've found the more recent GTAs very impressive but a bit dull.

    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    Is anyone else's PS4 really picky about opening the TV/streaming apps folder? If I've played a game first, it just hangs and the folder won't open (actually sometimes it eventually opens but it means waiting 10 minutes plus) - so I have to restart before using Netflix, Prime or IPlayer or whatever. I'm on a pro but I don't think that's the issue. I wish Sony would sort it out or at least allow streaming apps to be pinned directly to the home screen.
  10. I’ve got all trophies/achievements for only 2 games: the rerelease of Grim Fandango and Oblivion. It seems like too much effort most of the time. I’ve always had the trophy notifications off by default (along with other pop up notifications).

    Great Gaming Shortcuts.

    Getting the Banshee early in Halo (by knocking it upside down with a rocket launcher) then skipping half the level.

    Bad bits in otherwise good games

    Speaking of bullshittery, Meat Circus in (the Xbox version of) Psychonauts was not fun. It was a great idea ruined by having to remember the whole level by rote and performing it almost perfectly. I’d post a video but can’t find one not ruined by someone annoying speaking over the top. They apparently made it a bit easier for the PS2 and PC release. The final mission (The President’s Run) in Driver was also fucking horrible. Everyone mentions the garage tutorial, which was bad enough, but that final mission took me over a week. It wasn’t enough to learn the route and how to react at every point - you needed luck too. A bad hit (from any number of cars you can’t outrun) could spin you off the road - at which point it’s pretty much game over. And it was a wet level; that combined with the PS1’s low frame rate and response time meant your car took nearly a second to respond to every moment.

    Bad bits in otherwise good games

    Recently, I finished Dark Souls for the first time (having started it 3 previous times). I’d never played to Demon Ruins/Lost Izalith before. I know it’s been said countless times before but enemy placements, especially in Demon Ruins are bizarre - it’s like someone spent about 2 minutes just plonking down a load of bosses wherever. A real disappointment. And yeah - Bed of Chaos. Almost destroyed the controller in a fit of rage on that.

    Do/did your parents game?

    The only thing I’ve seen my dad play is Microsoft Hearts. He got quite irritated after accidentally updating his laptop and finding out it had disappeared.

    Your favourite weapons

    Twin Crissagrims in Symphony of the Night. I’m not sure I even liked them - they made the game far too easy - even the final - final boss went down in about 2 seconds.
