Thread What's the one fighting game character you were the most proficient with?
Cerebella in Skullgirls. I learnt some of her amazing solo combos and had a great mix up game. I played a lot with a flatmate that used to rage at me after constant batterings. I love a good corner trap but with her command grabs you can do some evil things.

Thread If I thought Bloodborne was amazing (minus the spiders), thought DS2/3 weren’t my thing, & didnt like Code Vein, will I like Surge 2 or Mortal Shell?
If you are liking a faster pace, I'd go for Nioh 2 like a lot of people are advising in here. I wasn't sold on the art initially but the combat is insanely fluid and the bosses in particular are pretty amazing. Fallen Order is a good shout for something similar but less taxing too. Mortal Shell is pretty cool, but I'm a bit biased. All the games you listed are pretty cheap ATM, which is good :) glad you are scratching that soulslike itch

Thread Prey and Dishonored 2 from Arkane Studios. Which one do you think is better ?
Prey for me. Think it's vastly superior. Everything from setting, to story, gameplay. I conveyed Dishonored but never really clicked with it. Prey on the other hand was one of my favourite games from last gen. (Fyi I picked it up based on a resetera thread on games that are often overlooked)

Thread Ring Fit Adventure is one of the best games I've ever played, probably my favorite (progress pics inside)
Good stuff. Glad you said you are happy and 30pbs is a lot! Seeing this makes me realise I need to pick up my RingFit. It's been gathering dust for far too long...

Thread LTTP: What is with that Far Cry 5 Ending?
I liked the ending. It's bleak. The world is not a nice place. However, the whole story of Far Cry 5 was really disappointing. The initial opening was so intense and the idea of a far right activist just taking up arms and manipulating society and preying on weak prejudices is pretty topical. Instead they have this opening and then just skirt around any of their beliefs other than them being a bit nuts and just have loads of scenes with you tripping. Oh and it tried to humanise these pos characters in worst ways with cheap exposition. Felt like a good idea was there and it had the heart and soul ripped out of it to avoid any controversy... Oddly I played this co-op and actually had a blast with it. Was just the story missed the mark so badly and could have been so much more...

Thread Too much negativity going on, let's all say a positive thing about a game we've been playing!
Playing Yakuza: Like a Dragon is so wholesome its ridiculous. I love how the game has a these weird dark themes and then you are going to do tests to improve your knowledge or going Go Kart Racing.

Thread FIFA 21 free next-gen upgrade is now available for most of the current-gen players
Update is nice but the lack of cross play sucks. A group of friends and I play pro clubs and we don't have any of our data on the ps5 version. We were in division 1 and we can't even pick it up on the ps5 version. Pretty disappointing.

Thread I never finished a Souls game. I criticized their difficulty. Then I faced King Allant.
Congrats! I was worried reading this that you were gonna give up initially. This was a really wholesome post - I hope you go back to some of those other souls games once you finish this one! Also, if it ain't pinwheel or something like it, don't say it's easy. I struggled on Tower Knight but smashed Maneater. Completely depends on a plethora of things from build to level to just personal playstyle. I find everyone has that one boss which they really struggle against. If they aren't hard for you, doesn't mean they aren't for someone else!

Thread If Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition Was Remastered
Midnight Club series (in general) was great. Whoever designed the tracks and city for the game was a genius. So many cool endings smashing through windows and going up escalators in malls. Remember one vividly for mc2 where you'd do an insane jump and land in front on the Eiffel tower to finish a race.

Thread PS5 and Xbox Series X scalpers are assholes
I have a few mates doing this. Really annoys me as I have other friends who haven't been able to get pre orders. All their excuses for doing it are complete bs. I had an extra pre order in, just asked a friend if he wanted it at normal price. Would prefer someone who wants it to be able to enjoy it without taking advantage of them.

Thread UK: Xbox Series X/S pre-orders on 22nd September start at 8am (retailers listed)
No money out of the account, no change in dispatch notification or the delivery date. Either they have a load shacked up in London and are awaiting some last min banking thing - or they have oversold their stock and now are divvying up. Feels very late to be getting everything done on Amazon's side. Not holding out hope.

Thread Embarrassing Video Game Confessions
When I was a kid, I had a pirated version of MGS1 (not cool/good, I know!) And couldn't get the codec number for Meryl for ages. I played up till that section over ten times, it wasn't until a friend came to my house that he told me about it. I always thought I missed something in the game and wasn't sure where to find the code. Derp

Thread inXile Entertainment announces that Wasteland 3 has reached 1 million players
Played this on Gamepass from seeing good reviews. I absolutely loved the game. The writing was great along with the combat. It kinda moves really fast and uses the beat bits initially and drags a tad towards the end. There were some great character stories and wtf moments. The game has a pretty funny script too. 9/10. Playing on Xbox it was mostly fine, but randomly characters would disappear I battle, and leave floating weapons. Not sure wtf was going on.

Thread What is your favorite console of all time? How old are you?
For me, the PS1. I legit think it's down to some rose tinted glasses and bit of childlike wonder. The feeling of that loading screen with the old multicoloured logo. I remember being so excited turning it on and playing it at friends and then finally getting one between myself and my brothers later down the line. The roster of games were immense and I think this was pre internet days, so I only knew about new games if they were in the magazines I occasionally bought. Sometimes you'd boot up a game and only know about it from what was on the box itself. It had a mystery to it that we can't replicate today. It does also help there were tons of great games: FFVII Gran Turismo Wipeout Tekken 1-3 Mortal Kombat Street Fighter Ex/Alpha Series FIFA WWF games Resident Evil Spiderman Crash Bandicoot Crash Team Racing I really can't place my finger on why (as we had a master system and mega drive late in their life cycles and I got consoles afterwards). But that console filled me with some child-like excitement I've not had since. Just hit me at the right time in my life I guess. I'm 31 btw.

Thread Will TLOU Part III be a Redemption Story, Prequel, or something else?
Ellie will go back to find Dina, and will be searching for her, realising she left happiness behind in pursuit of revenge. Abby and Lev will realise she was the cure they need and will be trying to find (not hunt) her down. When found Ellie will be with Dina and will sacrifice/redeem herself by giving her life for the cure.

Thread If you were a dev... you happier with game sales or amount of time played
You want your game to sell so that you can eat/pay staff/make more games. But reviews make a big difference emotionally. Seeing anything under a 6/10 feels like a massive sucker punch.

Thread Sony confirms no free PS5 Upgrade for PS4 Spider-Man Owners [Can be obtained via the Ultimate Edition or through upgraded base Miles]
I'm a bit annoyed my save data doesn't carry. I wasn't expecting a free upgrade (it would have been nice), but what irks me is the Miles piece (which is most likely significantly smaller than the base game), is going to cost me £50... Those high prices on first party next gen games aren't going down well. Other companies are doing free upgrades too. Doesn't paint a great picture, but development work does always cost a pretty penny. I'm slightly torn

The smile tip absolutely nailed it. Thanks a bunch. I doubt Amazon will cancel a ore order because it went in 2 mins early. Especially as they can see we are not bots/it's giving to charity too.

Thread Which retailer/s are you putting your trust in for Next Gen's launch?
So I went to Smyths toy store in Charlton for the midnight launch. It was surprisingly wholesome. I went a few hours before, there were about 50 people there just chatting. Most people were really nice, had a little polite chat, stood in the cold, got my Switch D1. For my Xbox One I think I used GAME and they were fine, went and picked it up during the day in Oxford.

Thread Former Ubisoft devs bring up examples Ubisoft devs trying to put explicit rape and torture scenes in
We have had plenty torture scenes in games. Just thinking back something as iconic as MGS, which was playable. GTAV had one to, if I remember. The rape 'game' is worrying. But maybe it was a cutscene or something? Rape isn't really touched upon in gaming and is a really delicate subject for obvious reasons.People are always gonna prototype and push barriers, it doesn't always mean that you should though. Always hard when these things are taken on of context/you can't see the full picture. Would be interested to find out exactly how these were gonna be used and in what games, they seem to fit in the Far Cry vein.

Thread Former Ubisoft devs bring up examples Ubisoft devs trying to put explicit rape and torture scenes in
I said it would be interesting to know context and to have a better understanding. This doesn't mean I support it. Again, just because you can do something doesn't mean you should. You are right though, what franchise could this slot into and work for ubi? None really. Their games are generally don't tackle serious issues properly or skirt around them (aka Far Cry 5). I completely agree though, how it sounds on paper, the franchises that ubi have and their track record with the recent news all point in extremely bad directions.

Thread Mortal Shell beta is now open for everyone on EGS
Parry windows are a bit more forgiving than souls/BB. If I am honest, the first set of enemies are kinda your main area's weaker does, but the guys in the crypt aren't really early game guys. The slice of the game is combat focused, rather than starting you at a hub world with different areas to go and find.

Thread Now that FF7 Remake has been released, do you still call her Aeris or have you changed to Aerith?
Aeris for me, because that's what I played 100+ hours in multiple playthroughs on FFVII as a kid. Also I like to pretend it was a subtle nod to Ares, the Greek god of war.

Thread LTTP: Prey
One of my fav games this gen. Kept seeing on threads on here and then decided to take the plunge one day. So glad I did. I have even got a few of my friends to play it since, offering them a personal refund if they disliked the game. None of them have asked me for their money back :D If you are reading this and haven't played it yet, please do. It's a gem.

Yeah i may have made myself sound like a madman here. Those long ass sessions would not be every day. I work mon-fri and am out kinda a lot. I'd say generally stints are 2-4hrs. Completely free weekends can lead to 10-14 hr binges now and then. I was just posting up the longest sessions i think I'd have.

Yeah, i don't do this frequently, but I know once every month or so I'll go on a mad gaming binge. I generally tend to only do this with one set game that I'm enjoying at the time. Regularly end up doing 6hr stints on rocket league into the early hours of the morning though Will check out QLEDs :) thanks for the help!

Thread Mortal Shell game Revealed - Dark Souls like RPG
Took a lot of inspiration from DS1, but it's also an indie team, so not as expansive. We want people to enjoy exploring and find new nooks/crannys and other things that maybe other players won't have seen. We also don't want to handhold players. Finding your own way around the souls games and talking to friends about different stories is part on the fun of the game for me.
