    Play/Want/Bin Feb 19

    Play Spiderman. Very enjoyable game, and a bit of light relief after the excellent Resident Evil 2. My PS4 is finally getting some use after years of neglect Want There's plenty I want in the far off distance for the Switch, but for the next few months I'll probably carry on with my PS4 retrospective. I have Hellblade on the hard drive, and am interested in that Uncharted girly spin-off game. I have played the other 5 games in the series after all. NIer Automata looks good too. Bin Tales of Vesperia. I managed 20 hours, and enjoyed them too. But I'm not getting a sense of magic or spectacle from the game that usually marks this genre. It's a bit flat, for me.

    Nintendo Switch

    Nor the side panel that's missing on my Wii. Bastards.

    Nintendo Switch

    I'm getting that. There's a lot to think about, isn't there. Astral chain looked immense. And Oninaki was an unexpected gift. I think they dropped the ball with lost sphere after the excellent Setsuna, but this new one might be a must play. Nintendo have some serious software coming to the Switch. No doubt about that.

    The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

    This was on my list of requirements. And will be a brand new top down Zelda for me, as I never played the original. Win for me! I love the character models. They're oddly shiny.

    @Whiskey_chaser Dude it's common knowledge that's what Retro have been doing these last 4 years** **This statement is probably highly inaccurate

    Marvel's Spider-Man

    I'm so good at this now, I basically am Spiderman, and have asked people in my house to refer to me as such for the time being. Spiderman, Spiderman, da dada dada, Spiderman....

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    Witcher 2 was one of the best games of that generation, for me. I found it better than 3, which was rather bloated by an overuse of that Witcher sensing mechanic. Jeez, that shit got old. Plus, it had one of the best opening cutscenes in history (although I think that might have been console only)

    Marvel's Spider-Man

    I don't mind the occasional brain teaser. They did some amazing stuff with R&C, especially crack in time. But when you see a big list of gradually stiffening block puzzles my heart sinks a little.

    Marvel's Spider-Man

    I hope those lab research puzzles aren't too important in the larger scheme of things. I got to about number five in the circuit board puzzle list and thought, feck that, life's too short. Call me a traditionalist but I prefer my Peter Parker taking pictures and web swinging into innocent bystanders😀

    Marvel's Spider-Man

    @Nagyeah, I was getting a good feel from all the controls but haven't been able get a good session on it yet. Maybe today, or tomorrow I can move on a bit.

    Marvel's Spider-Man

    Yeah, that was a good decision. Soon as I picked up the controller I was zipping around like no one's business. And bringing the pain to these goons like a true superhero. Super.

    Marvel's Spider-Man

    5 and a half years too late I've finally developed a bit of affection for my PS4. I've had the bugger since infamous second son came out but have only played a handful of games since then. But my last few games on the system have been bone fide masterpieces (God of war, Resi 2) and they have somewhat reignited my enthusiasm for sit down gaming (the last 5 years have been all about 3ds and Switch for me). In respect of the above preamble I've found myself searching thru lists of the best of the PS4. I don't play FPSs, and the few games I've played on the console are the usual AAA suspects, Uncharted, Witcher 3 etc. So I've grabbed a few of the other highest rated games, and Spidey is near the top of most lists. Played the opening sequence and, feckin' hell, this isn't messing around. How many combat inputs am I supposed to remember in the first ten minutes of this sumbitch? By the time I'd taken down the first boss my head was spinning. Seriously thinking about doing all that again to get a bit of a better grasp on the controls.

    Resident Evil 2

    How did That was bullshit.

    Resident Evil 2

    That's it, finally. Don't know how you guys were bringing in those 5 hour runs. It took me over 18 hours to get thru both scenarios! And my saves were close to 3 figures. What a game, though. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and gore. Loved Leon's arsenal, and the way you got to put down that nasty final boss. Can't wait for Christmas, so I can have it all over again as my festive horror game (like I did this year with Resi revelations.) My only criticism was the the I'm sure they could have ironed that out with just a bit of thought. Still, excellent.

    Resident Evil 2

    Finally had to consult a guide to get that magnum in Leon B. Turns out I had that usb all along. Bugger.

    Considered a delicacy in some (undead) regions.

    Resident Evil 2

    Like an addict I'm back in the station for the Leon B caper. I didn't realize that the scenarios were not really connected by narrative. For some reason I was expecting to find doors unlocked by Claire still open etc, but I'm basically doing the same shit, including finding medallions and charging C4 in the same locations. It's a bit weird, really. I don't know why I was expecting that, I just was. And I don't really know why it's not like that. It would certainly make more sense. Plus, Mr X is far more active in this scenario, and is more annoying than scary if I'm honest, especially after sussing that just running in a bit of a circle as he approaches seems to leave him completely flustered. Silly bugger.

    Resident Evil 2

    Finished my Claire A. Excellent game, I thought. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the 'weight' of the game, which I thought was pitched rather better than Resi revelations (the last one I played) which felt needlessly cumbersome to control at times. I still feel a person might want to break out more than a laid back jog when trying to create distance in a showdown with a giant 20 eyed monstrosity, but there you go. Started the second scenario with Leon, but I might leave it for a bit. It seems to me I know too much about the layout of the station, and Leon wouldn't. Maybe a quick 10 hours on Vesperia to keep things fresh.

    Resident Evil 2

    @Nag I'm playing as Claire, and I'm making so many mistakes it's pretty much a 'Greek farce' playthru. I can't wait for you lot to see my scorecard. It's going to be hilarious.

    Wish I had something to burn them with. They keep coming back to life🤬

    Resident Evil 2

    I'm now fighting walking plants, and was lucky to spot their little weakness in all the gloom. I think the PS4 level graphics definitely boost the atmosphere for games like this. Some of the lighting, especially the way the torch works, has been so wonderfully done you don't think about it. It's just so natural.

    Resident Evil 2

    Yes, but it was so obvious on the map that the route to the clocktower was that I thought the game had glitched and the missing item might spawn via re-entry into one of the rooms. It's all good fun🤬
