Re: Indie Game News/Releases

I picked up Curse of the Dead Gods a few weeks ago. It's a decent enough game, and if I had to compare it with something, it'd be Hades. Although Hades just has a charm and magic that draws me in much more easily than this early access game. I think i just like the environments, pallette and mood mo...

Re: Currently Playing

Good on you both! Grim Dawn is, largely, excellent! I've levelled a fair number of characters through one or two playthroughs. I usually stop playing it as i find the ambiance gets a bit samey after an amount of play, even if the class diversity and systems are so exceptional. Ashes of Malmouth and ...

Re: Good TV (aka, the TV series spamthread), the second series

I just finished Devs a day or two ago. Bizarre little mini series. Essentially a dystopian (current day) world in which vastly hypothetical scientific tech is being explored, merged with a little murder and drama. It's an engaging enough story during its 8 episodes, but i couln't help but think it f...

Re: Epic Game Store - Epic's Steam Competitor

Ubi ones link to your uplay so you don’t actually need epic store to launch them ;) My issue is with the fragmentation of platforms. I want all games to be available on our platform of choice, and that Steam, EPIC, Rockstar, Ubi, Origin compete to offer the best integrated platform. The more exclus...

Re: Epic Game Store - Epic's Steam Competitor

Oh my god.... ok i'm very much against investing in the Epic Game Store, but at the discounted price that Hades is at, I can't not recommend it! It's a work of art!! 8-)

Also fairly tempted by FC5 and Ghost Recon Breakpoint at those prices... not that i need more games i won't play...

Re: Currently Playing

If you like a simple game with a bit of puzzling you should try Hexcells Infinite. God i love this modernised minesweeper game! :D

Re: Borderlands 3

hey! I'm really glad you think so! I cannot BELIEVE i'm still being drawn back to it after a hundred hours! I started with a siren too, although i definitely felt fairly squishy in endgame. I ended up levelling an Operative too using the DLC to spice it up. The DLC content is pretty good too - i enj...

Re: Borderlands 3

I'm game for some coop if it takes your fancy.

Did try with one friend though and it kept failing - but joining random matchmaking seems to work, oddly?

Re: Borderlands 3

I'm going to say... I'm in awe of this game. :o I was expecting, optimistically, to spend 30 hours on it. I'm on over a 100 hours. I just finished the Handsome Jackpot DLC, and that was MASSIVE. It just kept going on and on and on. It's a superbly balanced (perhaps with the wrong build), but constan...

Re: Good TV (aka, the TV series spamthread), the second series

can i watch it with my 6 year old ? it's not that kind of show - it can be quite bloody - definitely not for a six year old. Certainly most of the anime I've watched i wouldn't recommend for young audiences. Every parent has different views on what they want to expose kids to, but you could look at...

Re: Good TV (aka, the TV series spamthread), the second series

If you've got Amazon Prime then I quite recommend Vinland Saga.

It's a pretty good Viking era anime - quite character driven, and the animation is fantastic - i'm thoroughly enjoying the books too!

Religion is the root of all evil, Followed closely by money, And stupid people. My new mantra. You miss a key point in your logic. People are the source of all those problems. :P Hope you're all doing ok - I appreciate the updates here - i appreciate the insights from you who I've known for so long...

Re: Currently Playing

If you have time before the free weekend is up, give Risk of Rain 2 a go - it's intense, well crafted and hard to let go before you eventually get obliterated by the increasing difficulty - definitely fun for a few hours!
