  1. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. Just got back from The Last Jedi. Have mixed feelings about the movie. Liked the Kylo-Rey arc. Liked Luke's story.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Thanks. How do I log out of my account on the switch? Is it the same as unlinking the nintendo account? When I click on unlink it says some save data might be lost. Is it going to f**k up my zelda saves?
  11. Got back into BOTW after a long break. The exploration never stops being rewarding. Also the Hero's path DLC is a godsend. Shows you where you've been on the map. There are so many interesting places on the map that I'm yet to explore. There are multiple ways to counter every weakness in the game. There is shock resistance food. Shock resistance clothing etc. This was my first nintendo/Zelda game as well so I also didn't know what to expect going in. You feel there are quite a few limitations but there are a whole bunch of things that can be done in the world to overcome the limitations that the game doesn't explicitly tell you. Here are some of the things I discovered and you should look for ways to do them (if you haven't already). Just listing what can be done, not how to do it. They are pretty basic but spoilered just in case you want to be surprised.
  12. Kind of underwhelming. The protagonist doesn't seem likable at all.
  13. I knew the trailer was going to drop soon but this time don't know anything about what will be shown. Just guessing based on past R* trailers.
  14. I think it'll be more story focused. Gameplay trailer will be closer to launch

    Grand Theft Auto V

  16. I've been holding off playing Blood and Wine. Will be great to get back into it after the patch!
  17. How you liking it? Bought mine at launch. It's not flashy but it really is the iPhone of Android phones. Everything just works. Software is clean. Performance is still as great as the day I bought it. And Camera+Google photos is a game changer. Full resolution back ups and auto upload and deletion means I never run out of space.

    The Witness

    Glad you enjoyed it. Yeah, the story is kinda pretentious, but the puzzles make it worth your time. Hope you discovered the 'hidden in plain sight' puzzles. The black obelisks indicate how many of those are in each area. Most of them are really fun to do.

    The Witness

    It's a puzzle game. 100% of the gameplay is puzzle solving. If you're looking for other things to do in between solving puzzles then this game probably is not for you. And I think you're only referring to the panel puzzles that you see in the world. Wait till you realize there are non-obvious environmental puzzles. You're not supposed to be able to solve all of the panel puzzles from the get go. Explore the island. In many cases you'll find tutorials for puzzles that you can't solve in completely different locations. I was obsessed with this game when it came out. Spent a couple of weeks drawing on graph paper, tearing and rearranging pieces of paper, taking photos of the TV with my phone, manipulating them. It is a hard game and you need some patience to get through and it feels very rewarding when you do. But the reward is just more puzzles so there's that.
  20. The more I read about this game, the more interested I get. Seems good value for money as well. Might just get it.
