It does look cool.  Awesome news!  Thanks for sharing.  :tup

Interesting gameplay, will definitely check it out.

Finished The Talos Principle. Very interesting, deeply philosophical game, great puzzles and ending. A tad too long tho.

Finished some games through watching gameplays since I couldln't be bothered to finish them myself: Dino Crisis, Environmental Station Alpha, Mother, The Last Door Season 2, and Fran Bow. These all were ok  :corn
the witness is great to be fair
Also started this one, damn puzzles are tough  :lol . But it's a beautifully crafted world, wished it did have some music tho, the sound design isn't bad, but nothing particularly amazing either, and no tunes can make things a little boring.

Environmental Station Alpha is actually amazing

Did you only watch the main game or the post game too

Also steam sale is on and I haven't bought anything oops
It's probably Six Roaming Owls or some other obscure band I've never heard of.

I thought it was pretty cool until I found that kind of huge serpent-like creature and got enough of the controllers  :lol. Watched the ending plus some post-game, damn that shit's spoopy.

As a fan of RPGs, I love the feeling I get from seeing a lot of 9s pop up in battles... especially when I had no intention of hitting the cap. Damn that's satisfying. Especially on a postgame superboss. :2metal:

Its amazing how much different games used to be.

That’s the feeling I had when I played the remaster on ps4. I guess I was a lot more patient when I was younger.

The N Sane remakes are harder than the originals because of the more modern hitboxes; it was much easier to land jumps on the PS1 versions but in the new games you tend to slip off more easily. That combined with heavier jump physics has ramped up their difficulty.

As seen here.

Well, that explains a lot. I definitely felt like something was "off".  And this is a common feeling with a lot of remakes/re-masters. The physics and mechanics are different feeling, which always throws me for a loop.

That’s the feeling I had when I played the remaster on ps4. I guess I was a lot more patient when I was younger.

I feel the same way, just in general really. When I was a kid, there was copious amounts of unlimited time and I have WAY more energy, so I could sit there for hours upon hours, soaking up entire days playing video games. Working full time as an adult, when I get home I just want to relax and when I'm off I want to be out doing things. And on top of that video games don't really hold my attention much anymore, unless its something that really resonates.

With Crash remake, I anticipated it for months. Got it, played it for like an hour, and then put it down.

Yeah, I'm currently stuck on The High Road, which per the Crash Bandicoot wikia has gone from being fairly run of the mill to maybe the hardest level in the trilogy. I can attest to that :lol

My mother recently bought the new iPad pro and gave me her old first or second generation Air. I picked up one of these controllers on eBay for $18. I'm curious if anyone else has experience with it/could recommend some good games that are compatible with it. Most racing games and the GTAs I have work great with it.

I don't have a game to recommend with that controller but your post reminded me of a great PC game that got ported over to iPad that you should try called FTL.

It's a spaceship roguelike, tough as shit but highly addictive and fun.

Yoshi FTW but I've actually found that I can do well with Wario.  Only took 20 years to realize, when everyone else goes small (Yoshi, Toad, Princess seem to always be popular) going big can work out surprisingly well.

Light characters were objectively superior in MK64. They had the highest acceleration, highest top speed (despite most thinking heavies did, which is only true for subsequent games), and the best handling. So Yoshi, Toad, and Peach were the best choices.

I saw a story about a game coming to PS4 hopefully later this year, and on a whim checked out it's very positive reaction on Steam and decided to get it.

Subnautica has been pretty excellent thus far.

That looks like a perfect contender for PSVR.

I certainly agree, but the article I ready specifically said the studio was having enough issues getting the game to 30fps for PS4, and it was unlikely they would be able to do the 60fps needed for PSVR.

Been playing this all week. Going on my Zero run of X4 right now. I was going to get it for Switch, but PS4 has trophies that I couldn't pass up! I'll probably end up getting it and the OG MM Collection for Switch in a couple of months. The X series is tied for best series of all time for me (along with the Legend of Zelda), so buying it twice for modern consoles is a no-brainer. Plus, I'm hoping with good enough sales we'll get MMX9 sometime in the next couple years (like we're getting MM11 in October!)

I need help. I just started my third Breath of the Wild playthrough... 100% on this. However I'm not using a guide whatsoever for the Korok seeds this time. Going to rely entirely on memory so this playthrough always has something left to find. 435 hours for the first 100%, around 200 for the hard mode 100%... wonder if this will ever get finished.  :lol

I also picked up Disgaea 5 again. Holy crap. I have 100 hours on this and I've completely forgotten how to play it. Anybody else familiar with this series? There are literally entire sections of this game I still haven't checked out because it's so complicated and has a million different systems.

Time to grind to 20 million stats  :lol

I still can't stop playing PUBG.  I took a few months break a bit ago, but have been going at it hardcore since the release of their newest and smallest map, which has made the game much more fun as it's quicker now.  Got a nice explosive win yesterday https://twitter.com/Cramx3/status/1024462638502301696
