The word "masterpiece" is being thrown around for the new God of War
Video Game News & Discussions

Nah, God of War looks like it may actually deserve the 10/10s.

You'd probably get more time out of BotW with all the monotonous shit you can do, but Odyssey is the better game (and a lot of time can be spent getting all the new moons post-story anyway).

My issues with Breath of the Wild
Video Game News & Discussions

Is it a perfect game? No. But no game is perfect as there is always something that can be improved. When you take an established series, especially a series that has been around for as long as Zelda has, in new directions you are going to find things that don't work that great or rub fans of

My issues with Breath of the Wild
Video Game News & Discussions

The way weapons were handled in BotW was amateur, and severely hindered my enjoyment of that game (next to the tedious amount of shrines). Finding out the god damn Master Sword of all things has its power drained from use was just the cherry on top.

I quite liked cooking, though. Was fun t

First 20 Minutes of Dark Souls on Switch

Hard to tell with all that glare, but I am disappointed this is essentially a port on all consoles with very little in the way of a remaster. Just seems lazy, and a missed opportunity for a game that could certainly use some maintenance.

And I mean, Dark Souls on-the-go is kind of appealing, but

Overwatch

It's been ages since we've seen any discussion here! How've you guys been feeling about Overwatch lately? Opinions on all the new heroes? Current mains, favourite modes?

D.VA's my most played hero, clocking in at almost 60 hours (double the time spent on my second most played), but the changes to

Far Cry 2.

So Far Cry 5 is shaping up to be a real disappointment, judging from all the previews I've seen. The franchise peaked at FC3 and Ubisoft refuse to shake up the formula again, so it's going to be the same recycled gameplay loop for the foreseeable future. Think I'll be striking FC5 from my hit list,

I highly doubt it, at least for their home console. If anything, there'll just be add-ons (like Labo).

I actually want to pick up DS on Switch. How is it compared to Skyrim?


Skyrim is a massive open world where you forge your own path, at your own leisure, wherever you see fit. Follow the legend of the Dragonborn, become embroiled in a political revolution, join a thieves guild, stu

On the (PS) plus side, they're offering Bloodborne and Ratchet & Clank as their free games for March. Pretty great for those who don't own them already.

Do you multitask between 2-3 games?
Video Game News & Discussions

Used to, in a similar vein to SOH. Would focus on a game like Horizon: Zero Dawn in my spare time, then change pace with Overwatch for a few matches (or kill time with it when I wouldn't be able to dedicate hours to a big single-player game). Generally don't like to divert my attention too much betw

I suppose Dark Souls. The original was an exercise in frustration at the time so I didn't last long with it. Tried again a couple years later, and despite progressing a lot further, I still fell off the game pretty hard. Then one fateful day I grabbed DSII: Scholar of the First Sin on a Steam sale,

Going through the DLC sections of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin. Realized I never did that the first time. It's...noticeably harder than the main game, which is pretty much what I expect given the DLC from the first game also got pretty comparatively difficult.

The only one I could say for certain would be Dark Souls 3, because it's designed to be difficult right from the first boss so it's easier for me to "remember" that it was difficult :P

Ahh I still think I prefer SM64 and Galaxy over it, but Odyssey is definitely a heavy-hitter.

I need to look at getting rid of my Xbox One as well. Haven't touched it since sometime in 2015; it's just a waste of space at this point because I know I'll never play it again.

Wouldn't say there's anything essential, but if you're planning on being mobile frequently, then a case would be ideal.

As for the games, I'd personally take Odyssey over BotW. Odyssey is well-designed from top to bottom, whereas BotW (for me) aimed high but fell relatively short. There are still
