  1. Sonic Forces SPOILER Thread

    It wouldn't be the first time, remember when Play Magazine gave Sonic 06 a 9 out of 10? Still, I think its more likely just Famitsu being generous, as they tend to be. (Just for reference though, 32 out of 40 is the same as everyone giving Sonic Mania 8 out of 10, hardly hating the game).
  2. Sonic Forces SPOILER Thread

    Seems to be less about difficulty, more about how time consuming it is. 5 Red Rings, 1 Number Ring and 1 Moon Medal for each level. 30 Levels, plus bonus levels...people probably haven't had the physical time to manage it yet.
  3. Sonic Forces SPOILER Thread

    Well, if you like playing the game, then there's a huge amount to do post-game. Based off Spaceport though, its very repetitive. I assume the later levels will make finding the number rings and moon medals harder to find. Still, that's each level needing beating a MINIMUM of three times, and that's assuming you get all 5 Red Rings on your first attempt, as well as getting an S-Rank on one of those attempts!

    Indeed.
  5. Number one for me has to be Breath of the Wild. I actually bought a cheap second hand Wii U just to play it (though thanks to Odyssey, I might need to get a Switch somewhere down and end up buying it a second time). The sheer scale of the world astounded me; I was constantly wandering off from my intended target to inspect the smallest of distractions. No fight was by-the-numbers, I always had to be alert. Shrines offered variety everywhere. There are some small issues (weapons breaking, dungeons were a bit lacking, some open spaces took too long to traverse and horses weren’t that useful), but I was absolutely engrossed for the 4-6 weeks it took me to finish my 100 hour journey. No game has grabbed me like that in years. Life is Strange took me by surprise to be honest. I got the season for less than a fiver, expecting something mildly interesting, more as an alternative to Telltale as I’d become tired of their formula. The quirky tone of the first episode intrigued me, and by the end of the second episode hooked me. A true example of your choices making a real difference, even your standard playing style and not just your binary yes/no decisions. In fact, the rooftop scene might be my personal favourite gaming moment of the year. It tailed off a little bit near the end, but really brought everything home in the finale. To stop rambling on too much, honourable mentions for Uncharted 4 (including a rare foray into online gaming for me, I really clocked in more hours on that than I expected to), Super Mario 3D World, Bayonetta 2 and The Last Guardian. I haven't played Mania yet, waiting for a sale.

    Ok, possible extra ending scene after completing all the secret missions I guess. Maybe a secret boss, possibly just make you fight the normal final boss again though. This game doesn't look as terrible as I feared. It doesn't look good though. As it stands, I probably won't bother with this one, which is a shame. But, the levels are just way too short, and generally uninteresting from a gameplay / level design standpoint. Graphics look nice, haven't heard enough to form opinions on the music or voice acting. In fact, barely seen any story stuff, so can't comment fairly there either. But as a guy who values gameplay above all else, I just can't justify spending the time or money on this one. (in before "Neither could Sonic Team). Something must have happened in those 4 years, because this is NOT the product of that entire time.

    You called it.

    Even at the end of the game,Red Rings are right next to each other...
  9. Sonic Forces SPOILER Thread

    I've only had a chance to see a couple of brief videos (my internet speed went kaput last night for some reason). With the previews and demo in mind, have there been any levels longer than 2 minutes yet?
  10. My first gig was Linkin Park, back in 2003. They were touring Meteora, and I was ecstatic that night. I may not have liked anything they did past that, but damn. This is a bigger shock to me than Chris Cornell.
  11. Metroid Prime 4 Announced for Nintendo Switch

    Not Retro Studios? Sorry if this is a stupid question as I haven't seen the briefing yet, but do we actually know what they're up to yet?
  12. Ubisoft at E3 2017 *Dolphin noise*

    Decent conference overall I think (the near silence for Just Dance was hilarious though), but I must admit I'm concerned about Beyond Good & Evil 2. The first 3/4 of that trailer is such a completely different tone to the original, that even with a giant talking pig I was second guessing myself as to whether it actually was B&GE2. The swearing was especially jarring, and I'm no prude. Was so happy for Ancel though, you could clearly see how much it meant to him, and vindication with that huge ovation he received.
  13. Well... I... Hmm. Let me think. Nope, only reason they're doing this is because ANNIVERSARY!!! The one that was last year. Whoops. I'm not judging to be fair, I've never been particularly bothered about story in Sonic games. Hopefully gameplay is good, but we're still yet to see much of that. I'll also echo the thought Infinite ends up being a colour swap of your own character. Ah well, I'm probably gonna get it on discount next year either way.
  14. General British Politics Thread.

    Oh man, this is hilarious. Tories will clearly go into coalition with DUP, but all it will take now is a handful of backbenchers to rebel and they're screwed on any controversial legislation. May's fucked herself over, and to be honest, fucked the country over when it comes to Brexit negotiations now. I mean, I voted Remain and would rather a "soft" Brexit that is mutually beneficial, but Europe are going to absolutely screw the UK now (and why shouldn't they, they've got every right). This really is one of the biggest political screw-ups in UK history.
  15. Phew, this took a few days to answer, couldn't even do it in order. Spoliered to make it easier to read:
