  1. Nice idea and cool climax but they stretched it out way too fucking long. Should have been 10-15 minutes tops. Half the people in my Tower instance left long before the Big Bang.
  2. Look up and to the right of the Almighty.
  3. It’s a grace period to allow people to load into Tower instances apparently.
  4. I’m making some new friends in the Tower but nothing else appears to be happening at all. This could be the classic Bungie to end all classic Bungie’s.
  5. PSN sale price saw me take the plunge on this finally. What am I missing? Why was this not hailed across the board as one of the games of the year?! It’s superb! Hugely atmospheric, proper feeling of edge-of-your-seat survival (playing on hard), great range of approaches you can take to any situation, stunning open-world that feels like it can be explored organically rather than being funnelled everywhere and more than passable characters and a potentially intriguing story. I guess maybe zombie fatigue and the over-familiarity of things like a three-pronged skill tree counted against it but it seems to take all of its influences and tie them together exceptionally well. Hugely impressed with what I’ve played so far after 5 hours or so.

    Dishonored 2

    The brilliant noclip tell the tale of how Arkane Studios came to be and how they ended up making these wonderful games.
  7. Battlefront 2 is a great game now. They got rid of all the loot box shite and there’s tons of content, maps and characters from all three trilogies to play around with. The singleplayer campaign is pretty crap but the co-op and multiplayer are great fun and there are decent bot options if you really don’t want to play with other humans. They turned it around in fine style and it’s something of a Star Wars fan’s wet dream now.
  8. BFV has crisper gunplay but the map design, class differentiation, vehicles, game modes, and above all atmosphere in BF1 are far better in my opinion. BF1 would always guarantee me a great time and I’d regularly lose entire evenings to it in the blink of an eye. It would (and still does) routinely throw up incomparably epic and desperate battles among the blood and thunder of its furious battlefields. BFV was maybe 50/50 in terms of whether I’d actually be having fun with it and I rarely would play it for more than an hour or two before getting inevitably bored or frustrated. No comparison for me between the two. BF1 I rate as having provided me with some of the greatest gaming experiences I’ve ever had. BFV will be completely forgotten before long. It occasionally had its moments but it’s an undoubted low point in the series for many (and I include people I know who actually worked on the development team too).
  9. Those were my control recommendations back when it came out and I still use them now for Online. Seem to work pretty well for me.
  10. I replayed the first section a couple of months ago and it wasn’t as long as I remembered it to be. Was a pleasant surprise. I’d say that including all the cutscenes there’s about an hour tops of crawling around a hospital staring at Snake’s arse crack while a man literally made of fire stalks you.
  11. And that's your lot! June's update will be the last new content for Battlefield V. https://www.ea.com/en-gb/games/battlefield/battlefield-5/news/the-future-of-battlefield-v?utm_campaign=bf5_hd_ww_ic_soco_twt_tw-the-future-of-battlefield-v&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&cid=63048&ts=1587646590769 I've had some fun with this game but it has ended up as a huge disappointment when all is said and done. It just never got going and they've evidently decided to cut their losses. I really hope they can get back on track with the next one but I'm not hopeful.
  12. Yeah, Disney (who own ESPN) straight up told him that he can't do it. The whole enterprise was in rather bad taste I thought. Holding a combat sports event with people throwing each other around a cage when pretty much the entire world is having to practice social distancing seemed kind of perverse to me. I grudgingly admire his chutzpah for actually managing to almost pull it off in such unprecedented circumstances but it showed an alarming lack of awareness. I also can't help but feel that it would damage the image of the sport, when they've worked so hard to try and move it away from the unsavoury 'Just Bleed' image it had held in the eyes of so many for so long. (Also had a suspicion that Gaethje would manage to beat Tony somehow and then we'd truly never see the fight we're all still desperately waiting for).
  13. Some build ideas utilising the Warmind Cells mechanic and seasonal mods: Hunter: Titan: Warlock:
  14. Tony v Khabib is fucking cursed, I tell you.
