  Friday Night Terraria Intensity
Posted by: Easter Crown - 22-12-2015, 12:40 PM - Forum: Multiplayer Meet Up - Replies (12)

So, Terraria recently got updated with the PC equivalent of version 1.2.4 plus a few console exclusive items. There were a few features left out to avoid major game-changing bugs, but everything else is in the game. New bosses, new items, new weapons, this update is going to be one hell of a show. I was wondering if anybody is up for Terraria, and if you are, what time on Friday sounds good to you?

  Emulation General
Posted by: GuyGo - 17-12-2015, 02:27 PM - Forum: Video Games - Replies (7)

What do you use? Do you prefer it to playing on old systems? Are you having troubles with any?

I'm currently playing PS1 games such as Crash Bandicoot and Spyro, the old games I played when I was younger. They definitely feel exactly like I remember them, which is nice. Playing on an Xbox Controller though is quite weird though.

I did try the PS2 emulator PCSX2, but the only game I've tried is Jak 3, and I can't get it to work 100%. If I could get it to work I would be so happy.

  2015 Game of the Year Thread
Posted by: Pythagean - 14-12-2015, 01:43 PM - Forum: Video Games - Replies (16)

Figured I would make a GOTY thread for this year, feel free to post your top games or discuss existing lists.

My list consists of 10 games which I played for the first time in 2015 (most of them were released in previous years):

1. Rocket League (PC and PS4)
What more can be said about this game, it is the absolute epitome of "Easy to learn, difficult to master".
Some of my best gaming memories of 2015 come from Rocket League, that feeling I get when I score the overtime winner after an extremely tight game is one I don't get often playing video games.
A special mention is required for Psyonix for being active in the community, listening to suggestions, providing tonnes of extra free content, and only charging for cosmetic DLC. A really nice breath of fresh air in this day and age.

2. Helldivers (PS4)
Having played Helldivers from when it was first released on PS4, I can quite confidently say that it has been my favorite co-op ogame I've played this year.
I've spent countless nights sitting on a couch with three other friends, yelling and laughing at each other as we manage to screw up objective after objective.
I love the stress of trying to mash the correct buttons in order to bring down supplies or revive allies, I love the clicking sound of the PS4 controller when you run out of ammo and I love the no-nonsense and unforgiving gameplay which comes from active friendly fire and a constant threat of being overrun.

3. Just Cause 3 (PC)
Yes, this game has problems. Although I haven't experienced the massive load times or the technical issues which are being reported (I did lose the ocean at one point, but that's beside the point). The story is forgettable, the world feels rather sparse (if beautiful) and the gameplay is pretty one note.
Having said that, this game is just sooooo much fun. It truly is a sandbox for making your own fun, the game does it's best not to restrict the players' imagination or options and I think it succeeds in that regard.
I've only spent ~10 hours so far in this game, but I definitely plan on putting a lot more time into it over my Christmas break.

4. Freedom wars (PS Vita)
I only just started playing this because it was one of the PS Plus games for December, I'm nearing the end of the main story now (Code 6 out of 8) and I am enjoying it so far. 
The setting and the theme of the game is really well done, everything fits into the style of the world. In order to rename your character you have to 'request a nominative reassignment' and you start the game not being able to run for more than a couple of seconds, these little things are nice additions which add to the experience.
The story is meh, and the Code 2 part of the game is obsurdly drawn out and kills the pacing. But push through that and it picks the action back up again, combat is fun and I'm finding I have a lot more options for how to take on opponent sinners and abductors.

5. Wolf Among Us (PC)
I played this at the very start of the year, so my memories are rather fuzzy of the details. I've played the first season of Walking Dead and loved it, personally I think Wolf Among Us isn't quite as good as that (although that probably also comes from having played Walking Dead first)
I absolutely loved the Fables world, I would love to see other games take on this setting (I do intend to try out the comics sometime.)
The story and characters are definitely noteworthy, but the flaws of other Telltale games still ring true here. All in all though, a solid game which tells a complelling story in a very interesting world.

6. Shadowrun Returns (PC)
I've never been much of a turn-based strategy game player, but after hearing many good things about this game/series I thought I'd give it a go. While the actual combat and gameplay didn't exactly grab me, the story and idea of building this storytelling platform gives Shadowrun Returns a place on my list. 
I've already purchased Dragonfall and looking forward to jumping into that.

7. Assassin's Creed: Black Flag (PS3)
My time with Assassin's Creed is limited to about 4 hours in the first game, and about 2 hours in Revelations (you can tell by those hour counts that they never quite grabbed me). Ever since then I have completely ignored the series, choosing instead to get my Ubisoft open world fix from Far Cry instead.
One rainy Sunday afternoon I found Black Flag at my parents house (my brother had left it there when he went away to Uni), and decided I should try it out. I expected this one to be like the other ones I tried, but holy crap after a couple of hours I was completely hooked. I spent the next few weeks sailing the seas being a pirate, and it was great.
I eventually lost interest and moved on to other games, but that few weeks was a very surprising dip into the world of Assassin's Creed.

8. 80 Days (Android)
I only just finished this game last night, so it's still fresh in my memory. It's the first game I have played through on my new Android tablet, and I really enjoyed it. You play as a valet who is aiding his master in his attempt to traverse the world in 80 days. It's a great example of a branching storytelling, as you make choices throughout your journey which can drastically alter your journey. 
Gameplay is simple, you travel from city to city using your limited funds, interact with other characters, buy and trade goods and plan your route. The real strength of the game is the writing, the steampunk-esque 1872 is wonderfully detailed through the descriptions as you travel the world. You will find yourself immersed in the stories of the cities you travel to and the people you meet.

9. Super Time Force Ultra (PS Vita)
Another game I wouldn't have tried if it wasn't for Playstation Plus.
Overall I found Super Time Force Ultra to be a very fun experience, it's nice to see a game use the time travel theme to such great effect. The gameplay is fun and rewarding, and I personally loved the humour of the story and the characters created by Capybara Games.

10. 1 Finger Death Punch (PC)
One Finger Death Punch has a very simple premise, but it's a game that knows what it wants to do and does it well. It's a perfect game to just pick up and play when you have 10 minutes to kill, each round only takes 1-2 minutes so it's easy to quickly play through several missions. Very fun and addictive

Witcher 3 takes game of the year! Very well deserved and I put about 150 hours into that game. CD Projekt Red then rightfully took developer of the year too. The game they delivered was incredible and it shows being able to take the win even after Fallout 4 coming out so recently.

Splatoon taking best shooter and best multiplayer is pretty funny. Rip Halo and CoD.

Personally, my game of the year definitely goes to Witcher 3 so my list would be:

  1. The Witcher 3
  2. BloodBorne (my review here)
  3. Just Cause 3
  4. Dying Light
  5. Muh Indies (Rocket Leagues etc.)
  6. Metal Gear Solid V (still my biggest disappointment)
Special mentions to Rocket League and Helldivers (my review here) being my favorite indies of the year. Fantastic games.

  Final Fantasy VII Remake Gameplay Trailer
Posted by: AdminGG - 07-12-2015, 07:06 AM - Forum: Video Games - Replies (2)

So the PlayStation Expo started this weekend, and this little beauty dropped at the live conference:

As if I wasn't hyped enough...

Gameplay looks to be FFXV style. That is to say action based RPG where you can probably swap between characters and move/dodge/attack in real time battle. Just like Crisis Core! Can't freaking wait.

I'd say its still a 2017 release though (also 20th anniversary of FFVII that year).
