  1. So I started Bugsnax that I got from PS Plus....Hum......This game has body horror and it leaves me concerned ūüėź

      I watched a video of The Completionist talking about that game. He commented on the heavy drama that the characters experience, despite it's cute and simple looks.

  2. That poor, poor, man.

      I had literally just finished watching that video before I came here. I'm in a panic because of it. I knew Crash 4 was hard but Caddicarus video was the first one I've seen to go into detail as to why.

      I don't own the game, I was gonna get it eventually. It's just that a couple of days ago, I bought the game for my brother as a Christmas gift. If he's compelled to fully complete it, then I've accidentally given him a self torturing device.

  3. Seeing scalpers trying to get sympathy and give sob stories about how people call them out on their bullshit is beyond pathetic.

      @Ryannumber1gamer Holy!

      Ugh, I can't stand people who treat others like fools. If the console costs something like 399 or 499 (Depending on local currency.) and they got 3,500 PS5's, that'd make the price spent on them to be a number beyond my comprehension!

      Looks like the kids have to live on caviar and wine again.

      It's baffling that the scalpers thought they could get any sympathy.

      But I'm not familiar with the whole situation. All I know is that it sounds like the new consoles have sold out due to scalpers reselling them for stupid prices.

    Don't know how long I'm gonna stay but feel free to follow me

      I hope your stay remains uneventful. I'll follow you but I don't use it often.

      The website has a reputation which has put me off of using it regularly.

  6. After literally over a week of avoiding Miles Morales spoilers, when I finally start it tonight - that's when YouTube's garbage algorithm decides to serve me up a spoiler from some jackass who LITERALLY PUT THE NAME OF THE SPOILER IN THE VIDEO NAME

      I have to wait to play Age of Calamity which means avoiding spoilers for that. YouTube is not an ally in these tasks.

  7. The trailer for the upcoming live-action/CG Tom and Jerry film that was leaked back in October has been officially uploaded in English.

     

    1. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      I think I recognise some of the actors in that trailer. It might be entertaining for the kids.

      But as a grumpy old man that fears change, I'm obligated to say it looked a little like a remake of various classic Tom & Jerry cartoons but with inferior animation and too much human in it.

  8. Did Heavy Rain have to make choosing a conversation option so difficult?

    They're blurry, shake and move. What was wrong with the Mass Effect route? My eyes aren't perfect and it gives you a limited time in certain moments, then the character will blurt out one of them. Makes Trophy runs more annoying.

    1. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      Jeez, you certainly make me wonder how bad the others could get. It would be unfair to say I hate Heavy Rain. It's just.....okay. But that could change as I try for the trophies.

      For comparison, I thought Paper Mario: The Origami King was okay when I completed the story. Then I tried to 100% complete it and the process to do so made me freakin' despise the thing!

      I'll probably check out Detroit: Become Human after I get all the Heavy Rain trophies. Assuming I can. From what I've read, Kamikaze is one of the harder ones.

      It asks you play the car trail without any mistakes....or without the motion prompts choosing to f*cking ignore you!?

  9. Finished. This is the demo reel I'm going to send in as an application for a collab. I dislike how it ends abruptly but I don't know how to fix that. I don't have many completed animations that are in a state to be shown off.

    1. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      I didn't want to mention this until I reached the moment in the game in which he is revealed. I'm there now, so here I go! XD

      Spoiler tagged because it's long. ^^;

      Spoiler

      How the hell is so little evidence found on the Origami Killer? David Cage wants me to think it's because the killer was a police officer, but I don't buy that. The guy has no accomplices and the only way to remove evidence would be to be the first one on the scene, considering the amount of victims, that'd have to make somebody suspicious.

      He couldn't account for if any of the trapped children were able to leave a message behind, after all, they were left alone for days in cold water. (Which also means we have to pretend that hypothermia doesn't exist to account for the drowning aspect.)

      Lets not forget how stupidly lucky he'd have to be to create tests for the fathers who wouldn't send in those easily traceable clues to the police or even mention them to the mother. Jeez, it's strongly suggested that the tests our playable guy does are the same ones the other fathers did, so....why didn't any other bodies turn up close to those locations? I can only account for that one guy in the obnoxious, class filled tunnel.

      Our 1st protagonist got some creepy poem letters before his kid was stolen so the killer obviously picks his targets carefully.

      To be fair, their might be a plausible reason for some of the points I made. I'm not sure how much game is left, as of writing this, I just saw the Origami Killer reveal with none of the characters dead.

      Which is actually pretty lucky considering how picky the controller likes to be with the motion QTEs. I'd also like to blame the game slightly in how the hold, repeated presses and tap action symbols barely look any different.

      I accidentally spoiled the story for myself. It wasn't a big deal, I only learned who the Origami Killer was. Story beats are still mostly a mystery to me.

      It was an interesting approach to write the characters as unlikable as they are. It means I don't have to care when a guy crawls over broken glass in a tight space, (How the hell did OK set all that up??) get repeated electro shocks and chop off his own finger.

      Does beg the question, how do these memory card things have footage of the child in real time? Are they supposed to be batteries to a live feed? If David Cage was gonna add super Sci-Fi stuff into this gritty drama, wouldn't it have been better to base it in a distant future or something? The gizmo that the FBI agent uses was jarring when I first used it and still doesn't really fit with the aesthetics. In my opinion.

    Darn. I thought I finally finished this scene but as you can see, the line art on the background has a slight error.

    Still be adding sound effects next.

    1. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      Oh, yeah. Yesterday, I reached the second time I can play as the FBI agent and had to wait for the damn detective to show up. I'm playing through that now and the first thing he says is "I've been expecting you." Then....why did I have to wait??

      Now I've just had to tie a grown mans tie for him and...dammit, this game is weird. Still, this scene isn't as corny as the one after the father blacks out and his kid goes missing. Seeing the character with these graphics, screaming into the night sky is pretty horrific and not for the reasons I suspect David Cage wanted.

  12. I shouldn't do a play by play narration of my experience with Heavy Rain, it's just....it's a really weird game.

    After playing the whole Prologue by driving humans, when I finally get into a car, I adjust the mirror, turn the key...then the fucking thing leaves with no player input!?

    I got into a fight that felt like gameplay but now I have to make small talk with a child. I tell you, it's making my social anxiety act up. I'm shit at making small talk and knowing what to do around children.

    1. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      Hang on, I'm the FBI Agent again. I have no idea what the names of any of these characters are.

      So now I have to...wait? Actually wait...I'm controlling how a character sits and waits?? Are you freaking kidding me?!?!

      It's also a bit of a bitch that I struggle to see the text for conversation prompts. My TV is pretty small and my eyes ain't perfect. I don't usually need to wear my glasses to play games but with this one I do.

  13. The PS4 version of Medievil ended up being great stuff, definetly the definitive version of the game to play; the framerate dips were distracting, but you can cap it at 30 if you want and i'm inclined to believe that the PS4Pro and PS5 versions will run more stabily.

    Now i'm finally trying Darksiders III and while different from the previous two entries i'm adapting enough towards the gameplay changes. The potential problem is that you can get lost very easily, without a proper map, i'm impressed in how big and detailed the maps are despite the lower budget the dev team had.

    1. DanJ86

      As an Englishman, it pleases me that MediEvil has the best line delivery of an English swearword.

  14. So I finally got around to playing Heavy Rain, I've heard lots of interesting things about it.

    ....

    ....

    It's really a slow burn. I'm used to pressing button prompts to a music rhythm. Kinda strange to have what feels like driving controls for walking. Son of a bitch draws better than me too.

      DanJ86

      Yeah. This is my Discord ID thing. Dan-imeJ86#1138

      I've also got Detroit: Become Human which was free at one point and haven't played it yet. Should I be worried?

      @pppp ????

      You mean how a child dies by getting hit by a car (Which didn't seem to be going that fast.) despite an adult male being a shield? Also, why didn't the balloon float away immediately? Why did the woman not give a shit about the guy? Did the guy pass out? Why didn't he make a noise, like in pain or terror? It seemed like the kids body was further away from the car than it should've been? Judging by where the woman runs to anyway. Do spoilers matter for a game this old??

      I'm glad I didn't pay for this. ^-^;

      @pppp I get what you mean by the graphics. Just saw the scene when you play with the kids and those smiling faces are the stuff of nightmares.

      I downloaded it when it was free on Playstation Plus so no wallet was hurt in this transaction. If you don't count the subscription fee.

  18. Bug Fables free update is out now. Kabbu's charge has changed considerably.

    Instead of a short burst, he constantly runs. Makes travelling easier and lets you blast through enemies. You can also steer him.

      @Supah Berry Actually, since you play as three characters at the same time and can swap them with a button press to use their unique abilities, it's more in line with Paper Sonic Heroes.

  19. Can't sleep.

    Anyone got any advice for dealing with a nuisance neighbour?

    He keeps sticking his nose into our business, complaining about anything we do and looking for any reason to report us. He's accused my family of something that was "against the rules" twice now and both times they were proven false.

    My mother tried to reason with him but got nothing but abuse instead.

      I guess that's our best option since the guy is hell bent on acting like a child. Seriously, the guy looks like he could be in his 50s or 60s and he's acting like a brat.

      I learned to never stop moving in that fight. It's even dangerous to double back to grab one of the ghost bombs he drops. It's safer to turn back by running in a wide circle so as not to get hit by any other projectiles. Those rock spikes he makes are simple to dodge but will get in the way so smash 'em if you get the chance.

      I've had thoughts like that. I learned the hard way that it wasn't true. It's not true for you, it's not true for me, it's not true for most decent people.
