    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    Why did I not even think about this? I'm playing on Super Agent difficulty becauseI didn't want to complete it quickly and the gun-based combat has been giving me a feeling of bullet-sponge enemies. Then again I've been going after harder objectives (survivability of 20% and below lol), plus who cares when you can throw stuff at people, drop down and ground pound, more them down with cars and more besides One of the monorail mini-bosses was giving me a lot of grief until I discovered that So far I've played about 4 hours and I'm loving it. Just mooching around, discovering new objectives and having a crack at them or just going for orbs. I haven't found any races though yet...

    Football Thread 2018/19

    Oi. Neither of these comments are appropriate. Cut it out or you'll be getting yourself a nice long cooling off period.

    Star Wars Episode IX (December 2019)

    I realise moderating of the Star Wars threads has been minimal in the past, but next time just report the post or ask for him to spoiler it.

    Gender Diversity / Politics in games (was Tropes Vs. Women)

    I managed about 5 minutes of that video before I became too angry to continue. Total fucking bullshit, and the way the guy defending her gets called a white knight - argh. Fuck all of this. If we're now at the stage where this can be recorded with identifiable gamertags, I would love for there to be bans handed out for this kind of harassment (at least on Xbox Live or PSN), but in all due honesty that seems like a remote possibility.
  6. Wait, that video was a chimera getting practically one-shotted with High Gicel? Glass cannon build? I'm currently playing Dark Arisen on the Bone, and I considered min/maxing briefly but decided to just play through with each vocation until I hit the max vocation rank and then move to the next. So far I've done Fighter, Warrior and Strider and then skipped Mage to Sorcerer. Currently I get knocked over a lot and I'm doing sod all damage, but it's still fun trying a different vocation (Warrior was boring as fuck though - was I doing it wrong?)

    Gender Diversity / Politics in games (was Tropes Vs. Women)

    1. In threads where he disagrees with the majority opinion, @witchypoos is demonstrably incapable of making more than a handful of comments without launching into a tirade about being persecuted 2. There are threads in which jovial comments are appropriate. In general, this is not one of those threads (similarly, jokes are not appreciated in the #metoo thread which should be obvious and yet somehow some people just don't get it), plus his jokes weren't actually funny (subjective opinion I know but the negs tell their own story) 3. In the end, he wasn't banned for having a different opinion, but for derailing the thread. Whilst I'm here, apologies for the delayed action. The derailing posts/comments have been hidden apart from a handful that were also replying to the discussion in the thread and that I really could not be bothered to manually edit, along with the comment from witchypoos that got him banned. Further derailing comments or "jokes" are not acceptable and anyone who tries it will be swiftly (or not so swiftly) banned. Thank you for your patience in this matter. /mod

    The Rllmuk Metal Thread Part 2

    And apparently a djent-type metal band
  9. Due to being a Xbox owner and only playing the occasional PlayStation or Nintendo game on someone else's console, there's a lot of classic games that I've failed to play. Games/series that I've dabbled in, but have shamefully not played more of: Metal Gear Solid: Completed the first game on a friend's PlayStation but never played the sequels due to not owning a PS2. Resident Evil: Played RE4 (amazing) and RE5 (still fun but disappointing in comparison) Metroid: I played Metroid Prime up to a boss where you had to roll bombs into four holes in the ground or something and gave up Castlevania: Completed Lords of Shadow on the 360 (SotN is in my unplayed pile of shame though) God of War: Completed 1 and 2 Devil May Cry: Completed 4 and DmC. Played 3 near to the end and got mildly fed up of being trounced regularly (this was giving up too early, as it took me a couple of playthroughs plus a guide to get the hang of DMC4, and even then I could never do the jump cancelling epic combos) Zelda: I've played LttP most of the way through three times now but never finished it (first time on my mate's SNES when he was away on holiday and loaned it to me, the second time on a Gameboy Advance Color when on tour for three weeks and then the third time on my DS [I think]), and I'm still plugging away at BotW but haven't played in months (three Divine Beasts down) Mario: The only one I've "completed" is Super Mario World 3D on the Wii U, but my sister and brother-in-law couldn't cope with the super-hard bonus levels so I didn't quite manage to finish the whole game. Fail.

    Dark Souls II - Prepare to Die, Again

    I'm just mildly annoyed that they remastered it without making the 360 version backwards compatible (I guess the remaster was done first, but I can play DS1 via BC so why not DS2 dammit). I had more or less done as much as could be done on a first playthrough (minus Covenant based rewards, because I could never get summoned frequently enough unless I was a Sunbro) and then just stopped playing. My 360 is now in a different country and I'm wondering if I can be arsed to haul across half the world just to play the handful of 360 games I own that aren't playable on my Xbox One X. Meh.

    What games did you complete? 2019 Edition

    Best Crackdown game since Crackdown. I loved it (although I have no idea who Keith David is, plus a lot of the references to previous games were completely lost on me as I've only played SR3), but due to a glitched achievement I ended up having to play through twice which was mildly annoying. Clearly I need to give up on trying to 100% games, because it just leads to major annoyances like this.

    What games did you complete? 2019 Edition

    Let's see if I can actually keep updating this until the end of the year this time around. Jan DOOM (2019/01/05) - I bought in a sale at the end of 2016, played the first level and then didn't touch it again until last month. Continuing with the difficulty set to Ultra-Violence, I got absolutely battered for the next two levels before the "push-forward combat" finally clicked and I began to love it (did anyone else think that the first boss was harder than the second boss?). I'm just polishing off the last few campaign achievements before trying out the Arcade mode, as well as the grind for the last couple of multiplayer achievements, but I should really move on to a new game. That said, now that I've finished it I can buy DOOM Eternal without shame.

    For any fans of Sylosis in here, this debut from Lucis Absentia hits the spot pretty well. It's a bit long though (72 minutes lolwut) https://lucisabsentia.bandcamp.com/album/gehenna-gate
