Picked up that Horizon Zero Dawn.

Good innit?


#862

That Witcher mission where you go with the elf to different worlds is insane, isn’t it. I’ve played through it twice and I still can’t quite believe it happens. There’s a topless Picasso pastiche in there and it barely even registers.


#863

Yeah, shame they didn’t do more with that concept


#864

unlikely they’ll top that game this gen


#865

Yeah it’s mad. Most devs wouldn’t do that because they had to create majorly different content just for one mission. God I love that game.


#866

this just made me guffaw in the office:


#867

I totally forgot about this, thanks for bringing it back to my life <3


#868

I picked up Nier Automata last night, played for about two hours and am already falling for it hard.


#869

I’m really enjoying it, haven’t had much time to play it sadly so I’m only a few hours in but I’ve really liked what I have played so far.


#870

I don’t think I’m going to be able to put in any significant time until next Friday, it really strikes me as a game i could lose hours in.
All the podcasts I respect are absolutely gushing over it.


#871

I really want to get on this but I’ll have to wait for it to drop in price a bit. The PC port appears to be all over the place atm anyway so hopefully it’ll be stable by the time I get in.

It’s so good to see Platinum making something big, weird and ambitious again after a few years doing (admittedly rather decent) franchise tie-in games. Love those guys.


#872

I have it on PC and am happy with how it is running. I get some stuttering when it transitions between the various play styles (side scrolling to 3D etc), but otherwise a smooth ride.
I hadn’t paid full price for a game in ages, so was happy to do so with this one, despite a vast and ever expanding backlog.


#873

Damn, and here I was convincing myself not buying it was the sensible option*. Read a long and technical Eurogamer article on it’s issues last night that put me off.

*it still is, I’m blummin’ broke.


#874

Fuuuuck those arachnocunts Hearts of Stone adds. I haven’t met as unpleasant a random mook as that in years, and I’m not even an arachnophobe.


#875

The joys of PC gaming and the impossibility of testing on every rig variant.
It insisted on trying to run with the on-board Intel graphics at about 2 fps, but after I strong armed NVIDIA it was fine.
I’m sure it’ll drop in price soon though, single player games on PC seem to be doing so faster than ever these days.


#876

Actually checking the specs I may have to hang on until I upgrade my set-up anyways. Seeing my graphics card listed as the bare minimum required doesn’t fill me with confidence.


#877

The song at the end is…wow.


#878

I’ve started playing rocket league again as my lil bro was staying with us. I’d managed to kick the habit for a month or so. Still so damn gooood.


#879

I been playing games other than Zelda!

Played a bunch of the splatoon 2 beta and now that’s all I want to play :frowning: Now the beta is over. I started getting really good at it as well :’(

Blaster Master Zero has been fantastic fun and Human Resource Machine has been a rather wonderful puzzle game.


#880

Don’t.

They make me feel unpleasant just thinking about them.
