Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

S8 walking dead mid season finale. Ive struggled with this show of late. Since S7 maybe, its been a drag. Episodes are a slog on times where in the past, at least something "wow" happened. I found series 8 the worst. This is supposed to be 'all out war' but its anything but. Guns are fired back and ...

Re: Your Game Of The Year?

Resident Evil VR. - not faultless- but as close to being there in terms of suspense and horror.

Inside - from the makers of limbo

I wanted to add Cuphead but it has frustrated and annoyed me into hating it, beautiful to look at but so spiteful to play.

Re: Gaming elements that annoy you.

Ok scratch that last comment about this gen not using QTE. Just started call of duty WWII There are annoying bits where you mash a hard to see button as a soldier suprise attacks you, then you have to drag the left analogue stick to the centre of a ring on screen before pressing another button which...

Re: Gaming elements that annoy you.

QTE - though i will say this gen has reduced these elements. Just cheap deaths and frustration - god of war series does this. Plus pressing a certain button frantically to stay alive or to open a heavy door. Limitless add ons to weapons or too much weapon choice to begin with, most players just stan...

Re: Area's of games you could never get past

There was a bit on a shinobi type game - maybe one of the sequals. It involved a room of spinning buddhas where you had to quickly destroy columns of spinning buddhas, once you destroyed one then another would drop vertically making you basically run out of space and hitting you. Hated it.

Re: How big are you expecting the PS4 VR to be?

Motion sickness can be frequent. I used to use the save bits in resi evil to rest my eyes a bit. The controls on some games can be smoothed to avoid jarring movements, but you do get used to it, kind of. Try not to make sudden movements too often when just moving your eyes meybe enough. Everyone th...

Re: Sonic Mania (Brand New Retro Inspired Sonic Game)

My annoyance with the bonus levels is there is a very slight lag from when you press the direction you want to move to collect the blue spheres. I colloect them around the outside of the square sets so they turn to rings...but the lag between the sharp movemnets and when it speeds up are unfair. I d...

Re: What grinds your gears ?

Havent seen the Dr Who one but you make it sound so annoying my stomach turned. I have in the past watched a few walking dead reaction videos where people are crying and screaming "why, whyyyyyyyeeeeee...not Ben noooo.

Re: How do you watch tv?

If you watch a show over several seasons, you can be talking about a 4 or 5 year period . Its easy to forget some subplots or minor characters, and when they resurface several seasons later it can be dificult to recall them. Watching boxsets of GOT I understand the storylines so much better, and so...
