    Half-Life: Alyx

    Building a PC for the first time in almost 20 years to play this. Waiting on the graphics card and the Oculus Quest. Should have the GPU in a couple of days but the Quest doesn't ship until April 24th. So now I wait..
  2. 4k 60fps on PC 4k 30fps on Stadia Pro 1080p 30fps on Stadia free
  3. What a great movie. Pity it's only 3 min long.
  4. Guys asking Dhoni to hit need to chill. If he's gone we 100% lose this. Let him keep the wicket on the other end and allow Jadeja to win this for us
  5. You're assuming Sony would want to have it part of PS Plus. Why would they want to give exposure to a game that might entice their own customers to move away from their platform in the future?

    Days Gone

    The game has mediocre written all over it. The gameplay, the graphics, the characters, the dialogue.. everything seems B grade. Can't believe this is a first party title. Sony has had an awesome streak of first party releases. I think this game will end it.
  7. This game is meant to be played on the hardest difficulty without the detective vision thing. I really enjoyed gun play, the melee, the whole hide and seek aspect of the gameplay with very limited ammo. I'm sure that's how the game was initially designed and meant to be played but they copped out in the end and added the easy mode with detective vision.
  8. The only thing I liked in the trailer was the music. R* used to be the masters of trailers. I think they've missed a step with the last two trailers. GTA 5 released 5 years ago and there definitely has been an open world fatigue since then. This game can't just rely on a good story. There need to be new gameplay elements to keep the game fresh. And they haven't shown any of them. It'll be a disappointing game if they simply use the open world model of the first RDR with a new story and better graphics.

    God of War

    Switch off the threat indicators and listen to Atreus warn you about where the attacks are coming from. I switched off the HUD completely a third of the way through the game and my combat improved so much. You're forced to pay attention to Atreus and enemy placements. I'm so much more aware of where the enemies are and where the attacks are coming from. For the spoilered enemies, you should take care of with ranged axe attacks and Atreus. Create space from the more slower enemies and take down these pesky ones first. Atreus will warn you if someone is about to attack you from off screen. Also, the game looks so good without any HUD elements, no Kratos or enemy health bars, no noisy threat indicators. Been playing on hard and really enjoying the combat.
  10. Ya. Not sure why people are thinking it's Marston
  11. It's the same guy from the last trailer. Just with a beard

    God of War

    Played about 5 hours yesterday. Game is solid. Enjoying the combat and really like the interaction between Kratos and the boy. Also, the level design is very reminiscent of Bloodborne with the secret paths and unreachable ledges that you get to later on and open up shortcuts. Love it One thing I'm not a big fan of is the whole upgrade system. It's unnecessarily complex. There's XP, hacksilver, runes and a whole bunch of other stuff. And it's not like there're different gameplay incentives to acquire these things. The same kind of exploration gets you all of the stuff. Also, the inventory to manage and upgrade seems like a mess. They could've consolidated some of these things and simplified the upgrade menu.

    Depends on if you're playing online or offline. If you're playing online and shut down/rest mode PS4, then you'll be booted to the main menu. If you were playing offline, you can continue from where you left off.
  14. Even phone/tablet use is uncomfortable in that position for me. You may not notice with the phone but for one handed use, you might be switching hands unconsciously. For the Switch, try this - Put a hardcover book on chest/tummy, prop up the switch with the flimsy kickstand on the book, detach the joycons - one in each hand and game like a boss/potato
  15. Playing while lying on the back gets uncomfortable very quickly and my hands start becoming numb. This is because blood drains out of the veins in your hands because they're above your heart.
  16. Just got back from The Last Jedi. Have mixed feelings about the movie. Liked the Kylo-Rey arc. Liked Luke's story.
  17. I don't have a good feeling about The Last Jedi. Even the trailer looked a bit cheesy, especially the dialog. Hoping I'm wrong.
  18. I think BOTW distinguishes itself very well from other open world games. Especially with how they do exploration. Yes, there are towers but climbing them doesn't mark or open up any quests. You have to go to places to discover and start quests. Even after starting a quest, the location is not marked on the map. You have to actually look at the map, review the quest notes, study the geography and explore to actually get to places. This format wouldn't really work in a run of the mill open world game. It only works because of the care and effort spent on the map and overall world design. Every lake, mountain, valley, pond, forest, bridge is named and the names make sense in the context of the world and the region. And again, you only discover the name when you visit these places. Have spent about 200 hours (Haven't beaten Ganon) and there's still much to explore.
  19. Have put in 150 hours in Zelda but yet to beat Gannon. Started playing this yesterday and love it. Did the first two kingdoms and now in the lake kingdom. Spent quite a while in the desert kingdom and collected over 30 moons and that's not even half of the total number of moons there. There are so many hidden areas everywhere. Checked the map and realized there are lots of moons in the cap kingdom as well. Have to go back there at some point Played handheld throughout. Going to try docked with motion controls tonight. This is my first Mario game after Super Mario Bros on arcade machines in local bhaiya videogame shops in India. The 2D nostalgia is still super strong. I'm sure there are a ton of references to other Mario games, but I just love the 2d wall bits with the music changing to 8 bit. Overall, I just love it.
