Games / Re: I've got a Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show on Youtube now

Good review! I'm often suprised by how many franchises have books. I really enjoyed Enemy Unknown on 360, but not played Xcom 2. The gaps between my strategy game moods are usually measured in years and one's not come around again yet! I have been thinking about Advance Wars a lot though recently, might have to dig that out and see if it sparks me off..

I've not actually finished one since Assassin's Creed 3, but I think if you're enjoying the latest AC and are thinking of trying another, the previous one Origins is probably your best bet at being the most similar. That was its triumphant return with some new ideas - a lot of people felt it was getting stale and formulaic before then, myself included!

Although those older ones are still good games in their own right, if removed from the context of being one in a long line of very similar games. They often go for very cheap too if you have an Xbox, they're all backwards compatible. Avoid AC1 like the plague though, it's prototype trash!

That is top neighbouring! There's an independant cinema in Manchester that's pretty active, I should check their website more often for old japanese films and anime, it must come up every now and again.

Yeah I'd be up for some SW Battlefront 2, I do own that. I've got Titanfall 2 too!

Sounds ace, is there a good website for keeping an eye out for small cinema events? I should be looking for stuff like that to go to. Also I read on the Wikipedia that the Manga version has it's own soundtrack that's more fitting in tone, so sounds like a good choice to show that version!

Will you be playing any multiplayer or will it all be campaign stuff?

I might be a couple of hours late to the party, maybe you'll still be engrossed in it by then though! Oh great, Cyber City Oedo is another of those properties like Patlabor that I ran into in the trailers on Manga VHSes but never actually saw myself. Is it on TV or at a cool little cinema or something?

Glad to heat it's good, I'll try and tune in Saturday morning then to catch some! What time are you starting?

Nice, good luck! Dark Void is on my backburner too, so hopefully I'll catch some of that - I don't know that much about it, apart from it being 'not terrible' and at the time I bought it, extremely cheap!

Saw this on reddit, got everything crossed that it's true and dropping soon! A whizz through the campaign and some multiplayer will be on the cards (assuming it gets a population boost so we can find a game!).

I've not played the RE7 DLC yet either. It sounds pretty uneven then like a lot of DLC :(, but I am still looking forward to the extra story stuff.

Speaking of Condemned, I played that for the first time recently on XB1 and it is indeed great! Unsuprisingly I guess (with it being developed by Monolith), it felt a lot like a melee cousin to F.E.A.R. which is one my favourite games. They both have tons of atmosphere, I just love that Monolith brand of  meshing paranormality, technology and realism.

So it is! Thanks, some great art.

Great Art Sinx, you may not have won but you've got lots of talent!

Also they have put all of the finalists two pages on the website which is a nice touch.

Is there a link for that? I can't see it on the website, maybe I'm going to the wrong one.

Seems like a similar downturn in racing games is happening now actually, with Onrush tanking I've seen a few articles suggesting that unless you're one of the big name franchises (NFS/Forza...I can't actually think of any more!) then you just won't get enough of a cut of the audience to be a success. A real shame.

Yeah I definitely think there's some truth to that and has been for a while. I don't think people buy that many racing games in a year and when they do, like you say it's probably going to be Forza, Forza Horizon, Gran Turismo, NFS, The Crew or the excellent kart racers by Sega and Nintendo. So it's saturated, and by big players.

Onrush is a weird one though, it wasn't quite a racing game at its core (perhaps even more niche!), and I don't think it holds a candle to Split/Second or Blur. It got quite a lot of bad word of mouth from it's pre-release beta too I think.

Blasted through Split/Second and found it really fun. I don't often get hooked on racing games (I say that every time I get hooked on a racing game!) but this is exactly the kind of racing game that grabs me. A good arcadey Burnouty smashy explodey takedown-fest, with a great sense of speed and some impressively massive destructive explosions.

A shame it didn't do well enough to get a sequel because it's possibly the only racing game I've ever played that ends on an actual cliffhanger, so that TO BE CONTINUED! is a bit annoying playing it now!

Such a good game. That and Blur came out the same week and were awesome, but they flopped. Maybe if they hadn't released the same week, the apparently small audience for these type of games wouldn't have had to choose, and they would've sold better. Not only did neither get a sequel, but both developers Black Rock and Bizarre were shut down on the back of these two great games :(
