Thread First look at the Halo MCC menus from the PC version
What always annoyed me about the MCC is that you can't just randomly join someone for co-op campaign. There's not even any kind of browser, its all invite only.

Thread First look at the Halo MCC menus from the PC version
It's a shame because I'm not interested in PVP Halo and I don't have any mates who are up for playing Halo campaigns again, so there's hardly a decent way to find peeps to play with.

Thread Twitch has Begun to Decline While YouTube Gaming Live Keeps Growing
The more you stream on Twitch, gain an audience and so on, you'll eventually get the chance to become an affiliate. I was using ReStream for a long while and then Twitch said I was allowed to become an affiliate. It's lost its importance to me now that I no longer stream everyday, so I think I might drop the program and go back to using ReStream. But yeah. A lot of people make the transition over time (if the audience is there).

No worries! Honestly, create a Blogger page, YouTube channel, anything. As long as you're creating content and/or writing, you'll have something to show at the end of the day and you'll be ahead of the game. I was 16 back when I started creating YouTube content. After a year, a now defunct website asked me to "work" for them but luckily I was able to visit events like EGX and meet people who would actually pay me for media work. Then it was freelance and University for me until four months ago I got the job at IGN. It can be tough but keep at it, network, approach website with stories and so on. You can smash it.

I've not cared about trophies or achievements for a good few years now and although its cool to have them in older titles so people have a better reason to revisit them, I feel like it didn't help that they set a standard for the PS2 games which they might not have wanted to in the first place.

Thread IGN: Out of 40k readers more than half want Sony's next-gen console the most
For sure, bumps to the resolution, more stable frame rates and such are all good. I just don't see the need of having trophy support for PS2 games which Sony did with their PS2 on PS4 titles. That extra effort probably wasn't necessary and might be one of the reasons why they've hardly touched BC for that system but that's just my theory.

Thread IGN: Out of 40k readers more than half want Sony's next-gen console the most
Honestly, all I want out of these next-gen systems is proper backwards compatibility (especially from Sony). They tried to put in the extra effort of adding trophies to PS2 games and all sorts, no one needs that. I wish I could pop my favourite PS2 games into my PS4 and have em run. I know its a lot to ask since it's a shite ton of work to get emulators running but Microsoft have smashed it with their implementation of backwards compatibility. Thankfully, I'll always have emulators on PC and if not then I can just run em from my modified PS2. To sum this up, I basically want a 4K capable PS2 which I guess isn't really a pressing issue.

I get that. My girlfriend would love to get into the Souls games because of the art design / style and to explore the world but the difficulty is super off putting to her.

Thread Capcom & Accessibility To Newcomers?
Hey there people. Not sure if a thread has already been created regarding this topic but I wanted to see what everyone thought about the subject matter. So I've been playing Devil May Cry 5 for about a week now and have been loving the experience so far. To be honest, I would say it's all thanks to the 'Human' difficulty selection & 'Auto' mode for combat. I probably wouldn't of touched this game if it didn't have these two modes on offer. I'm usually terrible at action games and trying to remember combo's of any kind is just setting myself up for failure but, to my surprise Devil May Cry 5 is really accommodating! From past experiences playing different action games, they've always been more than happy to throw a player in the deep end and leave em there. The same could be said for the story too. Although this is the latest game in a long running series, it still feels like a great place to start if you're a newcomer. The game even offers you a little catch up on prior DMC games if you really need it. This reminded me of Capcom's other games such as Resident Evil 7, 2 and even Monster Hunter: World and how those titles feel somewhat welcoming to new players as well. Take Monster Hunter: World for example which is another series I tried getting into in the past. Those previous MH games seem impenetrable to any newcomer but World had that little twist on it which made it feel just that little bit more welcoming compared to the earlier entries in the series. In any case, I'm wondering if anyone else had perhaps not been a fan of these franchises at first but soon changed their mind when having played these newer releases? Resident Evil 7 is a great example of a franchise giving itself somewhat of a fresh start, even if it has a seven in the title.

Honestly, I use to not care and just accepted this as a kid but now that I've got a full time job and such... I don't have time for games that are super hard (unless that's what I'm after). DMC 5 is proper fun and I'm just glad I can play it and not feel shit for remembering six million combo's.

Thread Days Gone preview thread
I would say no, I wasn't excited for Days Gone before hand but playing it kind of confirmed that it's not worth me spending 30 hours of my time on it. A lot of what's in the game has been done better in other open world games but then again, I'm somewhat tired of the setting / enemy type.

Sorry but I never got round to playing Horizon! The crafting is simple enough and it's quite fun to find different parts scattered around the world in buildings, cars and so on. Crafting is done from a wheel you can access while in game, time kind of slows down when you do (as far as I remember).

Thread Days Gone preview thread
Ha, no worries. Honestly, Day's Gone was fun to play whilst at the event but it didn't blow me out of the water like that E3 2016 demo did. Like I said, if you like open world shenanigans but with zombies then you'll most likely get a kick out of Day's Gone.

Thread Days Gone preview thread
So. I was able to play Day's Gone for three hours or so whilst at the preview event (around last week). A lot of what I experienced in Day's Gone has been done better in other games. If this game was released a few years ago, I probably would have been more excited. Overall, the game felt fine but that's about it. If you like Far Cry and all the open world trimmings that comes with, you'll probably enjoy Day's Gone. Sorted out a bit of spelling.

Not the best Resident Evil out there but it's a fantastic co-op experience. Trying to rip that thing off Jill during her fight on professional was impossible. I loved it.

Thread Skipping cutscenes on your first playthrough
Depends on the game to be honest. If it's another CoD game, then I doubt I'll be missing much. Also depends on how you feel on the day - you might not be in the mood for long cutscenes.

Music is HUGELY important for me, I have all of my albums loaded up on my computer since most of the music I like can't be found on Spotify and such. I can't always be completely plugged in since someone might call my name or something but... If I can't listen to a bit of Tatsuro Yamashita whilst at my desk, then I'm sad.

Thread Killzone Reboot could Definitely Work
I would love for Killzone to make a comeback. I always enjoyed the somewhat "grounded" war zone which was Killzone 1, 2 and also 3. Killzone Shadow Fall just did not do it for me. The whole aesthetic of that game was too futuristic for me which sounds daft but I just did not like the way that game looked.

Thread Disaster Report & Raw Danger... My Favourite Survival Games! Anyone Else Played These?
Both Disaster Report & Raw Danger are survival games but unlike your typical survival game, they're based in a somewhat realistic and grounded reality. You're not facing zombies, fighting off hordes of cannibalistic tribes or even facing up against groups of hostile online players. It's pretty boring actually but that's why I love it! It's the only survival game that I can think of which takes place in a city that's been affected by a natural disaster. You're just a normal person, trying to escape from a crumbling city. You're constantly dodging falling debris, navigating through destroyed buildings and so much more. It has a pretty simple gameplay loop of exploration, item management and choosing dialogue options. I'm doing a terrible job of explaining these games but watch a few gameplay videos and you'll get exactly what I'm talking about! I would be not to mention that these games usually have multiple characters you can control and quite a few different endings too! It's probably the most plain form of survival game that someone could play and I truly love the setting. I've always wanted to play more games like Disaster Report & Raw Danger but never really found similar experiences to them. I forgot to mention that these are PS2 games as well, how charming ey? In any case, has anyone else played these games and what do you think of them?

Thread Shenmue III should be releasing in less than 6 months. Where's the hype ?
Thanks for the congrats. Also, it's just one of those thing's isn't it? Matter of opinion and such. I just could not get into Shenmue. It was a fun game to stream whilst I was doing it but other than that, I couldn't see myself finishing it and Shenmue 3 seems the same. I'll obviously like to try it out but I'm not fussed or excited. The only thing I am looking forward to is the music. Big fan of the music in Shenmue but that's about it.

Thread Shenmue III should be releasing in less than 6 months. Where's the hype ?
I didn't grow up with the Shenmue craze and it was only last year or so when I got round to finally playing it. Honestly, it's alright? I can understand how it would of been super impressive for the time but it's not one of those games I would want to play again. Shenmue 3 lost me a while back. To be honest, I'm only looking forward to the music.
