I've been playing Black Ops 3 which Sony have given out for free at E3. How is a game which features wall running and power sliding so sluggish and slow? It's essentially a rip of Titanfall and Destiny and isn't as good as either. Full marks for customisation and presentation though. And you can get into a game in seconds. Still, the guns have no punch and the matches are boring.

I'll stick with the chaos of Battlefield and the tactical, sneaky gameplay of R6: Siege.

Ghosts of Tsushima will do.

Sure, but that won't change that it's silly that a game series about assasins throughout history still hasn't had a Japanese/shinobi setting.

So much Super Smash Bros on Nintendo's show. Not in a position to post vids right now. Don't be afraid to go ahead and do it yourselves.

Jimquisition's review of Blops 3 is a thing of beauty. A stand out on Metacritic when all the other reviewers are fawning over this garbage lije Mike Pence.

Look like Cyberpunk is a first-person RPG.

Edit: Huh? The internet is hating on it being first-person! :scratch:

Heh, I wonder if Forza Horizon 4 will realistically capture some of the roughness and potholes of UK driving.



I like the Horizon series, but often find the "simulation" too smooth and arcade-like. Anyway, good fun for a couple of hours, I guess.

Weird, I prefer my RPGs that way.

https://www.engadget.com/2018/06/12/sega-is-bringing-yakuza-0-valkyria-chronicles-4-pc/

Hot on the heels of Shenmue I and II's re-release announcements, Sega Europe has confirmed that two additional franchises will be coming to PC. During E3's PC Gaming Show, the company revealed that PlayStation-bound titles Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and tactical RPG Valkyria Chronicles 4 will all make the move across, joining the likes of Bayonetta and Vanquish.

Hyped. :yay:

Yakuza 0 is only 20€ on Steam.

Sekiro has no stats or classes or character creation. You play only as a particular, shinobi character. Your prosthetic arm has lot's of Swiss army knife utility and this seems to determine your playstyle. There's a hint that different load outs will need to be used in different situations, for instance an axe attachment can be used to swing around and de-shield enemies.

That prosthetic arm features a grappling hook which gives you a form of traversal. You can stealthily drop down on enemies and find hidden pathways and secret locations..

Game is single player only.

Your right-hand weapon is always a katana. The combat is described as sword-on-sword clashing. A big change from the dodge and parry of Dark Souls. Posture plays a part and receiving blocked blows brings your posture down. Unblocked blows reduce you further. Equally you can lower enemies by striking and successfully parrying. When one of you has been knocked off balance you or they are open to a deathblow.

You can revive from death on the spot. As the enemies will tend to walk away you can come back and stealth kill them so dying can be used tactily. From Software said you can't just do this all the time and there are disclosed consequences to dying so it's not a free ride.


Sounds different but good.
