    Edge #326 | Devil May Cry 5

    It just came through to me on the Edge app on iOS.

    To be fair, there's absolutely nothing wrong with them inasmuch as they do what they 're supposed to do, but for a quid or so more you can pick up all the stuff you need to do hundreds of bases for not much more effort The tub of sand I have is more than 20 years old and never seems to go down in size :p

    To be honest, they're not that great really. Nothing you couldn't do yourself with some paint, sand and a little PVA glue. The trouble with the pots is that they dry out incredibly quickly and because it's so clumpy anyway, one pot doesn't last much time at all.

    It was a bloody brilliant game, you heathen.

    But it does have Europe’s ‘Final Countdown’ on it if you listen carefully.

    Games that get under your skin

    Another one for Mass Effect 3. Folk can say what they want about the ending, but the journey to get there is possibly the most emotional one I’ve ever taken in a game. So many little ‘moments’ where these people you’ve been attached to for so long either die or win some small victory was just wonderful. the music helps enormously and whilst most of it was more or less a reprise of the previous games, it never mattered for me. The most touching thing was when you and Liara were just talking in your cabin in the Normandy. It honestly makes me well up just thinking about it. ’Just’ a game indeed, but something that makes me get like that’s got to be worth something more than ‘just’ I think.

    I have absolutely no problems with games possibly having huge flaws and still good enough to get a 10, or a ‘gold’ or whatever. But that will always come with the caveat of ‘as long as I like it’. Unless some mag or website has clearly been paid off then I’ll defend anyone giving these games the highest marks, and the amount of times I’ve vehemently disagreed with Edge I can probably count on my hand. One of them is Witcher 3, which is quite possibly the best game I’ve ever played and despite some pretty glaring issues really did deserve that 10 it never got. I certainly don’t think so less of RDR2 to not accept a 10 from them (or anyone else), but it just doesn’t feel anywhere near close to a 10 for me unfortunately. And it never would have got a Crash Smash either

    Why are you talking in third person all the time? We know it’s you, don’t be shy.

    Is Read Dead Redemption 2 any good?

    The lag is there, but that's okay - that feels like a deliberate attempt to give some sort of weight to Arthur and that's not really an issue. It's just almost everything you do seems to require about three more button combinations than is really necessary. There are times when I'm holding down three different buttons at the same time to just try and stay on my horse whilst attempting to talk to someone next to me. There are menus within menus, there are lots of instances where the game 'breaks' the tutorial information and asks you to do some other button presses to do the same thing, and - for me at least - it's extraordinarily confusing and frustrating. I'm not a fucking genius, nor am I a fucking idiot, but for a game to do so much absolutely amazingly (the game world is extraordinary - there's nothing out there which feels more like a real world than this at the moment), it's such a chore to play. It really frustrates me that as far as I can tell, there's no reviewer out there in the world who have commented on this at all! Which actually may mean I'm just genuinely crap, I dunno but I cannot forgive the game for this. Maybe things will be different when the PC version comes out...if it comes out.

    My honest opinion is that as a piece of entertainment, I've currently had more fun with both AC: Origins and Odyssey. And it's pretty much all down to the godforsaken controls. It's quite possibly has the worst control setup I've ever encountered - certainly on a modern game. At the moment, it's possibly my biggest gameplay disappointment of the last couple of years I'm afraid, and it's thoroughly gutting to say that.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    It’s at this stage I’m gong t assume the tutorials were given to someone who never actually played the game

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    It's kind of worse, as RDR2's so bloody magnificent in every single other way. Each time I play it, it feels like I'm actively participating in the best Western tv show there's ever been...only to get mauled by wolves as I've forgotten which button to press :p

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I say it again - it's fucking baffling at times how they've done the controls on this. Honestly R*, I don't mind a game just being a game for the sake of making slightly less irritating controls. I find it ironic that with Origins and especially Odyssey, Ubisoft have gone completely the other way in their control set-ups and they are by far the best Creed games they've done, whilst R* have decided to be stubborn bastards and stuck to...well I don't know what the fuck it is, because it sure as hell isn't logical what they've come up with for the controls at all. Right up until Syndicate, the AC games always felt like they were shoving all manner of gorgeous, wonderful visual treats and fun things, only to stick two fingers up at me by giving me controls that Satan had just shat out. I dunno - each time I boot it up I feel the game is on the cusp of being possibly the greatest open world adventure I've ever had only to come crashing down when I'm getting my fingers all in a knot manipulating the sodding thing.
