Re: Planet Zoo [PC] - Autumn 2019

The animal models and animation are superb, but if it's anything like Planet Coaster (and from what I've read and seen, Jurassic World) it'll ultimately be pretty shallow, gameplay-wise. The problem with PC was that the simulation always felt skin-deep, with really simplified guest logic. The game's...

Re: Xbox & Microsoft News/Discussion

I'm waiting to see if there's a price drop towards the end of the year (given that the console will be going into its final year prior to its replacement), but Game Pass is almost entirely the reason for my considering the console.

Re: E3 2019 - Press Conferences and News

I got chance to watch the first twenty minutes of the Square Enix conference, and the Final Fantasy 7 Remake is now the game I'm most excited for. I was really anxious about them moving away from the ATB system of the original, thinking that it was a really strange move to fundamentally alter the ga...

Re: E3 2019 - Press Conferences and News

Well I just about got home for the start of the Nintendo Direct, but didn't get a chance to write anything here because it was just one game after another. Luigi's Mansion 3, a Dark Crystal tactical RPG (no, really), Link's Awakening remake, Dragon Quest 11, the next Platinum game Astral Chain, Daem...

That actually wouldn't have surprised me.

Re: E3 2019 - Press Conferences and News

They said it would be available on Stadia. I'm not convinced that means Stadia access is included in the price.

$15 a month! The same price as the XBox and PC game pass!

Re: E3 2019 - Press Conferences and News

Was that another Terminator-themed DLC for an unrelated game? They're really trying to promote that new film, aren't they.

Re: E3 2019 - Press Conferences and News

I think getting someone talented and recogniseable in to do the voice acting is perfectly reasonable, but yeah, it does feel like they're just trotting out celebrities for no real reason these days. Keanu Reeves for Cyberpunk last night was a bit cringeworthy; I don't think I *want* to recognise rea...

Re: E3 2019 - Press Conferences and News

Ubisoft are really into their shooty shooty games aren't they It's funny, I tend to associate Ubisoft with quirky games like Rayman and the like, but they really are massively into their shooters aren't they. I clearly just haven't played anything they've done in recent years. Now they have a dog o...

Re: E3 2019 - Press Conferences and News

Every time a game has had a simulation of an entire city, with every human supposedly unique, they all turn out to be so impossibly bland and generic that you have to wonder why they chose to do it other than marketing. Every character is voiced? Sure, but they'll have maybe 20 voice actors that you...

I'm not convinced they've actually hired any English actors for the incidental voices.

Re: E3 2019 - Press Conferences and News

Ok, perhaps "embarrassment" is being a bit harsh, but it just feels so awkward and unpolished and arguably disappointing compared to the other conferences. It's perhaps to be expected given that PC Gaming doesn't really have a big company to support it; hell, the fact that it was sponsored by one of...

Re: E3 2019 - Press Conferences and News

You're really not missing much. The *one* announcement so far that I was interested in was Terraria, and the trailer for the latest Terraria update crashed, and rather than go back and finish it, they just cut to the next item. Even the Borderlands 3 stuff didn't seem to be done correctly; the devel...

Re: E3 2019 - Press Conferences and News

One day, the PC Gaming Show will not be awkward, stilted, and it'll look well-rehearsed. Not this year though. Featuring so far; -Sponsorship from Epic Games Store. Because if it's PC game related and you can stick a currency symbol in there somewhere, it's going to be connected to EGS! -The first i...
