    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    Yeah, it's quite the opposite really. There's so much stuff on Game Pass that only the really good ones, such as this, actually get played. I'm probably missing a few dozen games I'd really like if I put the time in but, instead, just move on to the next one.

    Same here, the architectural design is fantastic throughout. I just shoot them! No chucking required..

    I was being facetious.

    I never said that nobody else should play those games on Switch just because I wouldn't. I just don't think it's the ideal platform for everything, especially techy AAA games. On the flip side, I am loathe to play anything that looks a bit 8 or 16 bit in its art style on the 'big' consoles as such games look much better on the small Switch screen..

    Horses for courses of course but Doom will remain a PC game for me. The thought of squinting at all that frantic mayhem on the small screen, whilst also fighting with the joycons does not appeal. I don't play any FPS's on console though to be fair as I much prefer the fluidity of mouse control for those games..

    I was being facetious really but, with regards to Rage 2, just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. My Switch isn’t a place for cut back PC/traditional console games as I’d rather play such things with all the bells and whistles on those machines. That said I did finally pick up Dark Souls despite having previously bought it many times over on several platforms already. But that’s because it’s Dark Souls.

    So, you’re telling me there is a chance?! lloydfromdumbanddumber.gif

    It is Early 2019 now! Also, my previous barometer for a long rumoured Early 2019 release date was the new Alan Partridge and that starts next week. I shall be checking the estate for Goose Game on Wednesday and hope not to be disappointed.

    Boxboy looks fun, no idea why 'indie'/non AAA games are dismissed so easily by some, especially on Switch where they often fit perfectly. I am mostly waiting for the Goose Game as that looks EXCELLENT. When is that out?

    Those will not be available on the Switch.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    I really, really dislike the propaganda towers so have only done two and that was way back in my first few hours. The platforming is way too fiddly for the camera and controls which make them far too much of a faff and hugely frustrating when compared to other, more destructive, missions. They are the weakest element of the game for me. Nice views though, I suppose. That said, I might go back now I'm quite a bit more powered up...

    It was sounding like one to maybe put on the watchlist of shame right up to this two word bombshell. IT IS NOW TOP OF THE LIST.

    But then you could argue that the player, having suddenly lost all the fancy gear and abilities, would be left feeling underpowered and pining for the shiny things. I can't even remember the opening section of the game to be honest as it bounds along at quite the pace so I do struggle to see the opening as anything like an issue but, either way, how many players don't expect games to reward them with ability, tech, prettier environments, etc, etc, as they progress? Seeing all the good stuff at once would negate a lot of the pleasure and surprise of later earning them. I'm really liking the slow increase in power as the way it just sort of creeps up on the player is easy to overlook until you realise just how much more effective you've become at traversing and blowing stuff up.. I probably played about as much of the original as you did and certainly haven't felt that the game is aimed at fans of the original as I'm oblivious to what went before. I'm just having a fucking blast...

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    I've never really played a Crackdown game before, didn't read any reviews, haven't read much more than a quick glance at this thread and, as such, went in blind with no expectations either way. I now feel that I maybe should have played Crackdown back in the day as this is abso-fucking-lutely glorious. It's been a very long time since a game kept me up till four in the morning but this is so ridiculously compulsive it's now done that twice this weekend . There is always just one more orb, that one objective location to tick off, that convoy to unleash some mayhem on, etc, etc and all in a magnificently realised and absolutely fantastic looking world. It's a very pleasant change to play a dsytopian future scenario that is 90's SEGA blue sky lovely rather than the usual miserable gloom and doom. I'm genuinely amazed to read that is it not reviewing too well a it's quite brilliant. The only notable downside for me isn't a gameplay one but the lack of a 1080p/60fps mode - I'd take smoothness over resolution any day of the week, especially on a game as action orientated as this. Damn good work from Sumo.
