    Certainly more interesting than having the fucking AI constantly jumping off the side during the descent. No, I'm not still bitter about that. Why do you ask?

    I'd be interested to see a rundown of what people's thoughts on it were once they hit the Seat of the Matriarch and the final boss. Both these areas expose a ton of the weaknesses in the AI and overall design, and I can see a lot of people jumping ship on either one. It actually has some positives too, and some neat ideas that weren't directly stolen from From Software, but the lows are pretty much abyssal sinkholes. May be different if you can co-op with someone competent, but due to no Xbox Live Gold I can't hook up with other players. Oh, yeah. My super expensive Xbox Elite Controller, the one that had the grips peel off after two months, died after falling onto a carpet from about shin height yesterday morning, so I can't play it regardless. If that USB cable gets even so much as a light tap while it's plugged in, there goes your pad.

    Monster Boy And The Cursed Kingdom

    If that was a Twitter account run by an AAA publisher they'd probably be weeping blood and swearing vengeance on the people buying it for showing up in comparatively small numbers. Loved the trailer for this too, it all looks so joyful.

    The King of Fighters XIV

    There's a full game freeplay campaign on Steam at the moment, anyone can download and play until sometime on the 16th - base game is £11 odd, and the full package with 10 costumes, soundtrack, artbook and 8 DLC characters is £17.50. Not a bad deal at all for anyone on PC.
  5. I thought this thread was about physical memorabilia when I clicked on it. Done wrong - those asshole medallions in Resident Evil 5. I've had to collect them to unlock shit in about four different versions of the game now. Done right: Astro Bot does everything right. The general rule of thumb is usually: Can you miss it, is it important, and is it hard to get a hold of if you do miss it?

    Resident Evil 2 Remake

    Agreed. The price is well out of proportion. Capcom's Online Store had a sale with free shipping recently - the Leon Kennedy from the Vendetta GC movie was about £200-£240 or some such. I bought it including delivery from Japan for around £70. Their UK pricing is well out of whack. It was this model, by the way:

    Darksiders 3 - Fury's Road

    Have a +1. I don't agree with all of it, but I did like the passion behind the post. And that said, I'm maybe not the best judge of difficulty given that I competed on stage in Tokyo at the Ninja Gaiden world finals. I never had any problem with checkpointing even on Apocalyptic for example - if a game gives you a nice, responsive dodge I'm usually pretty good at tearing through it. I did find that the slotted items changed things up nicely - adding health leech to Fury's whip (Chaos rune?) would allow you to soak up plenty of excess health over time after a few upgrades. 6% of damage done isn't too shabby after a couple of combos. Can't defend the bugs, of course. That's my chief... it isn't even a complaint because it didn't bother me much, but it's a shame they're in there as it allows people to point their fingers and laugh at the game. I mean, I'd rather have this than the three games you mentioned which are obviously super high budget, but I found them fairly pedestrian in nature by comparison - especially God of War, which turned into the Gears of War of fantasy action games. DS3, despite feeling 'old', still felt nice and fresh given the lack of obvious modern day competition. Glad you liked it overall! I certainly wouldn't have been against Nordic giving them a few more millions to play with mind - if they short change Saints Row to focus on short term profit, as well as their other upcoming games, they'll be killing off a lot of potential sales of great games that aren't allowed to get where they should be.

    Berserk Musou (Dynasty Warrors: Guts' Rage)

    Nowhere near as good. Musou Orochi 3 and DW8 are your best bets for content and gameplay, though I never played Fire Emblem. Arislan plays well too, but is totally anemic in comparison, content wise. It's not a little bit less, it's a hell of a lot less. And the 97 anime is absolutely fan-fucking-tastic. It'll be dated now, of course, but hell. What a series.

    Now at the final boss. I seriously don't think I can be bothered inching over the finish line.

    I've actually hit the stone further in now, so there is a checkpoint near the end at least. There's also a run to the boss through a valley filled with those lurker things that are pretty much zero fun to fight. Can't even team up with humans as my Xbox live sub lapsed ages ago - haven't really used my Xbox much this gen, so I let it expire a few years back. Besides, I like to take things slow at my own pace like Majora, so not sure the multi'd be for me unless you could team up with someone you know and stay paired up for a good length of time.

    Darksiders 3 - Fury's Road

    Yeah, it's a slight shame that the hollow weapons are tied to each hollow, though I found the whip in and of itself was a fun tool from start to finish. I'm not much for elaborate combos as a rule, I'm more focused on how important timing and dodging is in a combat system. That said, it could have opened up some really neat inter-weapon chains.

    I'm honestly starting to hate this game. The AI companion is a complete imbecile - I'm at the seat of the matriarch, where you can barely see a damn thing, and the asshole keeps jumping off the nearest cliff every chance he gets. It's balanced for having a companion with you, so I usually wind up dying inside after this happens and losing around 15 minutes of progress because there's no checkpoints inside. The combat definitely lacks the grace of Dark Souls too, as the animation isn't tweaked to the same degree. This results in some really choppy scraps occurring with loads of enemies at once where the whole flow just seems off. It actually gets quite a lot right, which is annoying, as it fails to nail some of the cornerstones - like that Godawful AI behaviour. If he's not toppling into an abyss with no enemies around, he's ignoring the ones we're fighting and running half the world away to pick a fight with more enemies and drag them in as well.

    Darksiders 3 - Fury's Road

    Well said. I think it's great, but I also didn't encounter any of the nastier bugs. Audio stutters and a few dash crashes were the worst of them. Annoying, but easily ignorable due to constant auto saves. Not excusing them, mind, and it is weird they didn't hold it back for a month just to go bug hunting. It's not like they're a rarity in the game, and they'd obviously affect reviews given their frequency. Also, I'd much rather have a good 15 hours. God of War for example was massive, but felt like a third of a game stretched beyond breaking point to cover the rest of it. (Story included.)

    PlayStation VR

    Wipeout certainly does. Not sure how effective it is, but it basically adds blinders and the like to the cockpit view to narrow the amount of fluidly moving space you can see at once.

    Darksiders 3 - Fury's Road

    It's pretty great, and its old school approach is a real breath of fresh air from 'damn near linear corridor third person over the shoulder AAA approach' that's so critically lauded these days.
