Games / Re: Last game played...
« on: Today at 09:49:05 AM »
Gaming overload since December - I'm at various stages of the following:

Golf Story (Nintendo Switch) - I overlooked this retro Golfing RPG when it was released a few years ago, and have rectified the mistake. Highly addictive game, but getting quite difficult in the final chapter.
House of Ashes (PS5) - The 3rd of the 'Dark Pictures Anthology' and historically the 4th game that my other half has agreed to play / participate with me (she was a huge fan of all the previous Supermassive narrative driven games, including 'Until Dawn'). We are early days on this one, but loving it so far - a nice blend of Aliens and The Decent.
Doom Eternal (PS4) - Purchased on the back of a shockingly entertaining play-through of Doom 2016 last year. It's great, but feels ever so slightly off compared to it's predecessor. I'm getting either crap or lazy, and have lowered the difficulty a few levels in.
Mario Golf (Nintendo Switch) - With my love of the virtual sport recently rejuvenated, it was a no-brainer purchase. A solid game, as you would expect from Nintendo, but surprisingly the lower spec Golf Story has better game mechanics. Go figure.
Just Cause 3 (PS4) - Purchased on the back of a Mr. Pops recommendation earlier in this thread, I got it for about 3 quid in a PSN sale. I am very far along in this, having completed the main story. I'm now just flying around in a golden helicopter blowing shit up for a few more Trophies. A hard game to actually recommend - entertaining for what it is, but I did find it a bit boring and repetitive. Probably should have dipped in and out more.

With apologies to Nicest Guy on Earth™ Dom Reardon, I'll vote Mechastopholes.

Button Man

Collector displeased that new Collection omits The Collector.

Those Icelandic Pixies may have made it through round one, but will find no safe HAVN when pitted against the 46 inch waist might of middle-aged nostalgia.

Ace Trucking Co

Los Testículos Hermanos may as well be hanging off the crotch plating of Armoured Jerubaal in this here match-up.

Armoured Gideon all the way to The Edge.

It must be coming in the Hachette collection, surely....

Here's hoping.

I quite enjoy Scarlet Traces (the recent run was ace), but Cradlegrave is on another level.
One of Tooth's best horror series.

Tough break for the amusing Intestinauts, but Skizz soothes that tummy ache with some low-fat yogurt.

No offence to Ian Edginton, who has delivered so much comics goodness, but his X-Force run was just deeply... forgettable.

The Edington era:
- Goatee beards and big leather jackets; 98%
- Sexy Domino; 2%
- Entertaining stories; 0%

I'm not. I'm dropping to bits.

Keep the helmet on.

Batman/Catwoman Not much happens here

The Thing Absolutely baffling.

She-Hulk Ah, comics.

You're a glutton for punishment pal.

Didn't see this one until now, but the right story won.


Forever in Bluegenes:'(

Sorry I missed this one, but it wouldn't have mattered.

Tyranny Rex by an inter-dimensional mile.

Link P, have you tried much of Milligan's American comics stuff? It's not all good, but I REALLY liked his X-Force/X-Statix, and his Human Target. You know, in case you want to try un-breaking that heart.

He's also done some great mini-series recently as well. 'Out of Body' and 'Happy Hour' immediately spin to mind.

I have tried a lot of his American stuff, including his full run on X-Men - It hasn't clicked with me in years unfortunately.

I will admit that I never properly tried X-Force / X-Statix, which is probably his most highly regarded US work since the turn of the century.

I amusingly recall asking my LCS to cancel my order of X-Force after issue 115, which up until that point was a full run, purchased every month.
"What the fuck is a Doop?", I indignantly mused. The folly of youth.
