  1. The new season of Doctor Who is off to a great start. It’s been years since I’ve felt this optimistic for the show, tbh.

  2. After trying and failing to play Guitar Hero Live earlier (it lagged badly on my new TV; guitar buttons kept sticking; etc) I dug my old Wii guitar out and popped in Rock Band 2. Oh my god I am falling in love with this game again.

    Side note: why is it that the three year old GH Live controller feels cheap and barely works now, and yet my eleven year old GH3 controller still works fine and feels great despite the ludicrous amount of time I spent with it back in the day?

      Whoa wtf, my roommates are also getting back into old guitar hero/rock band stuff haha. Is it becoming a thing again? Lol

      I do feel like the franchise was revived too early when GH Live came around. Yeah, it was, for all intents and purposes, the 10th anniversary game, but still.

      Maybe nostalgia for the series will get high enough to warrant trying again someday?

    3. Speederino

      Speederino

      I don’t know if I can see GH coming back since Live didn’t do super great, but I could see us maybe getting a Rock Band 5 at some point.

      Speaking of that, I never did pay much attention to RB4...

  3. *turns on Guitar Hero Live for the first time in yonks*

    ”GHTV will no longer be available after December 1st”

    *sigh* It’s not like that mode has the best songs in the game or anything. I didn’t have much reason to play GH Live as is but once that mode’s gone I may as well sell it. The actaul on-disk setlist is shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit.

      Activision strikes again! They don't want to pay for the music licensing even though that GHTV was the point of the game. Apart from that Crash N.Sane trilogy Switch/Xbox One release and the delay of Spyro, have they done anything right this year? To be fair though the game was a massive flop, I remember seeing those plastic instruments everywhere new for the price of a pizza, a price comparison that very few games get to.

      Probably lucky to get a buck if you sell it.

    2. Speederino

      Speederino

      Yeah I’m definitely not surprised it’s being shut down, it’s just a shame because that mode is pretty much the only reason I played the game at all.

  4. I was feeling a little silly owning both an Xbox One and a PS4, but then I thought of it this way: my original Xbox is fried and I never owned a 360. Thanks to Xbone’s backwards compatability, I essentially have three consoles in one here.

      Plus you can play cuphead.

      You shouldn't feel silly, that way you get to experience as many games as possible (pick and choose platform, PS4 exclusives that won't be playable on a PC for quite some time if ever and Xbox One exclusives that are more easier to access than their potentially more powerful PC versions).

      Using your Xbox One as a backwards compatible machine is a bit restricted on what games you can play though. It's good that its there but if you're a fan of licensed games, certain desirable Sega titles and older racing games, well it is a bit on the screwed side.

    3. Speederino

      Speederino

      The backwards compatibility is a bit restrictive, yes. But so far just about everything from last gen I care about is available on there in some form or another, so I’m happy.

      It’s definitely better than Sony’s current approach to BC which is basically “What, people want to actually play games that are over four years old!? Okay fine, we’ll let you stream them. Maybe. Meh.”

  5. This is making me feel nostalgic for the original DS line. I can’t remember the last time I played Elite Beat Agents.

  6. Spider-Man PS4 is legit one of the best looking games I’ve ever seen (*coughEspeciallyWhenSeenOnA50inch4KTVcough*). It’s for sure the best looking video game version of New York, no doubt.

  7. Oops. Turns out I had my PS4 Pro set to the wrong type of 4K output. I just fixed it and HNNNGDjFkfudbdjfjHKJC

      I mean they’re not the most important aspect, especially with these particular games which still look fantastic in 1080p. But this is fucking mind blowing.

    4. Strickerx5

      Eh, I'm just always going to be in the mindset that a dev should try in every area when they can. Not just stop at gameplay and call it a day like a few often do. It's what pushes a game from being just simply good to actually memorable imo. While gameplay is the most important factor, I'm tired of acting like it's the only thing that matters. A game that can offer the full package will always get praise from me.

      That drive also helps keep the industry from getting dated... even if it's still happening a bit...

      how we're not at 1080p, 60fps as a standard yet is beyond me...

  8. I'm definitely enjoying AC Origins more the second time around. It's the kind of game that's best played as a slow burn. Take your time, explore, do random shit, etc. If you try to rush through the story you're left with a tedious grind.

    That said, I really wish we could have the option to legit rush through the story if we want. I don't like how everything is gated off through arbitrary level requirements.

  9. I just dreamt I had a pet turtle. I have never once in my life considered this idea but I gotta say...

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      My only big hangup on the idea is that I’ve had minor experience in pet-sitting and I remember how horrible the smell can be if a turtle’s water hasn’t been changed. That and I don’t really have room for a big tank of that kind so why am I even considering this anyways? XD

      I did that last Tuesday for unrelated reasons.

      Also if I ever get one, I will probably name it Machiavelli.

  10. And now for the most important thing you’ll ever read: my takes on each AC game sans Odyssey.

    AC1: Good and ambitious for its time, now feels dated and clunky. Still has some charm though.

    AC2: One of my favorite games ever, love it love it love it

    Brotherhood: A surprisingly meaty expansion to 2 with a few nice additions and a fantastic multiplayer. I still prefer 2 for its story, though.

    Revelations: Why does this game exist? It’s not bad, just pointless.

    AC3: A lot of great ideas and mechanics that are often poorly executed. I love the setting though.

    AC4: The same ideas and mechanics from 3, but now done properly. Also you are a pirate now.

    Rogue: It’s AC4 but in 3’s setting. I can dig that.

    Unity: Tries way too hard to ape AC2 and is also bad at it.

    Syndicate: Fantastic setting, otherwise forgettable.

    Origins: Really ambitious, has a great setting, and is overall really good. Just a little grindy for my tastes, maybe.

      Meh. I liked AC2 Discovery but I have little to say on everything else.

      Think I agree on most of this except Brotherhood bored me and I liked Revelations story.

  11. DpP_9OMUcAA_szK?format=jpg&name=large

    I know a screenshot can’t do it justice, but I’d just like to say AC Origins looks really really good in 4K. Ok bye now.

  12. The more I hear of it the more excited I am to eventually play AC Odyssey. Not before RDR2 though.

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      Until then I’m replaying Origins to tide me over. I gotta say I’m liking it more on a second playthrough.

      >excited 

      All I’ve heard are negative things, and from what I’ve seen of the game, I’m inclined to believe it’s pretty subpar and money grubbing 

    3. Wraith

      Everyone I know who's playing it is loving it. Can't wait to buy it on sale.

      I bought it yesterday; can't wait to dig into it once it finishes downloading.

    5. Speederino

      Literally the only bad thing I’ve heard is that it may or may not be grindy depending on who you ask. That was my main problem with Origins (if you wanted to just focus on the story, anyway) so not much has changed there for me.

    6. KHCast

      KHCast

      Grindy experiences meant to make the microtransactions more palatable along with a overall buggy janky experience from videos I’ve seen, make it come off to me as just “another one” vs anything special. I liked Origins, but this certainly looks like a step down imo 

    7. Marcello

      @KHCast What? Most of the reception has been very good.

      As for money-grubbing, I'm assuming you saw the Sterling video where he exaggerates the "grind". You have to do some side-mission to stay around the same levels of the main missions, but the game is balanced the same way as Origins which didn't have the XP x 1.5 microtransaction, so acting like they balanced it around them is just wrong.

      And since the game isn't balanced around microtransactions, I can't say I care, as they're completely ignorable without hurting the enjoyment of the game.

      Though, I do agree that $10 is way too much for that.

    8. KHCast

      KHCast

      It’s been general sentiment the microtransactions are shit, not just one person in a video stating it. I’ve heard from multiple sources the game feels Grindy to play through even with that bonus Xp thing.(also it not being balanced around them but them still being prevelent in the game would still be Ubisoft taking the piss imo. Just don’t include them if the game’s fine without them.)

  13. It’s been around a year since single player games were officially declared fucking dead. I still can’t believe it sometimes. I wake up in the middle of the night expecting to feel the warm touch of my copy of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim laying next to me. But I don’t. Because it’s fucking dead.

      Don't worry, you'll enjoy the multiplayer port of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

      Spider-What now?

      Also RDR2’s single player is a publicity stunt and will be like ten minutes long. The muktiplayer is definitely the only thing that actually matters.

    5. KHCast

      KHCast

      You actually believe when game companies declare something dead?

       

  14. I think, sometime soon, I'm gonna have to really put away the video games for a little while to focus on other things. Not sure how soon or how successful I'll be, but I think I'll have to try.

  15. I’ve set a weekly goal to watch a random movie I’ve never seen before. This week it was The Hateful Eight. It was maybe a bit longer than necessary but otherwise freakin’ great. Easily one of my favorite Sam Jackson performances.
