    Pre-ordered Tales of Arise. Don't know why I do it as the timer ticking down until you can play it just frustrates me.

    Meanwhile in Afghanistan, the Taliban have vowed to destroy every single copy of Cyberpunk, because it was such a crushing disappointment:



    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Only hearing and reading good things about it. Lerruz know how you get on with it.

    I'm just playing through Chrono Trigger now, and after a brilliant start the middle act just fucking drags.

    Anyone watch the PS5 showcase?

    Knights Of The Old Republic Remake announced
    Project Eve looks interesting
    Forspoken doesn't look as intriguing as when it was first announced as Project Athia, it seems a bit annoying.
    God of War Ragnarok looked pretty much the same as the last game, why they didn't build a flagship game like that from the ground up on PS5 I don't know.
    Tiny Tina's Wonderlands looks completely mental

    I watched, thought Forspoken looked great.

    GT7 is over both generations, what a fucking stupid move. Spiderman 2 was exciting as well.

    Wish they wouldn't waste time on whatever shite GTA is delaying and Uncharted fucking remasters

    My problem with Forspoken isn't how the gameplay looked as such, more I have issues with games where the main character is constantly making wacky comments, it always feels like Poochie from The Simpsons to me. If I had watched the trailer on mute I would be more excited.

    I agree with GT7, the same problem I have with God of War.

    And I don't know why GTA5 needs yet another release, it will have been released on three separate generations of console. Surely everyone has played it by now?

    Because MONEY!

    And, laziness. Easier - much easier - to remaster an existing codebase and maybe bring more users to your lucrative online platform (which is where they make their real money nowadays).

    I didn't think it was too bad? I've just gone back and rewatched it, reminded me a bit of whatsit, set on Seattle, I think Troy Baker did the voice? Completely forgot what it's called

    I think they're shooting themselves in the foot with it. At least God of War is going to be so good elsewhere I can look past it, but I can't with GT7, knowing that they've royally fucked it up.

    I don't understand why 5 needs another release either tbh, the Online I get cus it makes money. I can only think that they want the world on PS5, as I believe a lot of people still play the normal game to mess around in. And we're still 5 years away from GTA6 probably. I want a PS5 RDR2 to be honest, I'd pay full price for that and I don't even care

    I don't think it's laziness, considering how many updates come to the online bit. They're working full steam on one, maybe two games, but we don't know what they are yet.

    Could GTA6 be a single player story mainly and a map addition for the ever expanding GTA online?


    They aren't re releasing GTAV they are re releasing the online game.

    I think it'll be exactly like that, GTA6 will come out (in 2034), then there will be a month where you can only play single player before it opens up to online. I know that we could've had Liberty City as an expansion earlier on, as it already exists in the HD universe, but the issues at the start of the Online put it back then we were on PS4 all of a sudden.

    GTA5 is being rereleased, the enhanced edition comes out the same time as the Online. It'll run in 4k and 60fps which will be a first for it on consoles.

    Liberty city would be a bit of a let down with all the hype surrounding Vice city and the surrounding areas (you could argue that cayo perrico is Rockstar testing out the texture packs for the Miami/Caribbean map, much like animals and wooded areas in GTAV were testers for Red Dead)

    I think GTA online will remain seperate and will just be updated with new maps etc and you keep your character throughout like any other mmorpg. People will not be happy they have spent hundreds, even thousands on their current characters, just to start again.

    If rockstar had anything about them they would notice how popular the modded RP servers are and may create seperate servers for that to happen, but earn the money for themselves rather than 3 blokes with a bit of money to rent a server.

    We would have got Liberty City in 2014/15, after that I don't think it was a possibility. I think Vice City and the Caribbean will definitely be the next destination.

    And yeah, that's been the target since the start.

    They tried to create a Cops V Robbers thing, it was meant for release last year but after it all kicked off they binned it. Some of the assets are still in the game files on PC apparently. They just called it the Summer update and released the cars. Not that it'd be anything like those RP servers... which are a bit mental

    Just another note on that PS5 Showcase before me and Carlos talk about GTA for the rest of the day.

    That intro movie was really shit. That Chess thing? Terrible.

    I'm constantly blown away by the modded servers. I'd hazard a guess that a huge portion of PC players use FiveM rather than GTA online.

    Console online is just toxic and has gotten very stale. You either get blown away by a random on a bike or just drive about tediously doing the same mission over and over again.

    I'm not buying another console now. My money is going on a decent PC.

    The fact that you've been able to do the last few updates in closed servers has been great. Me and my friends have really enjoyed the Tuners update but we're coming to the end of that now, which is pretty good because we'll be out and about like normal again soon so don't need gaming as much.

    I just can't be doing with PCs. I'm too simple

    Yeah it's been a bit of a sod getting online at the same time as my mates so I'm soloing it usually, which takes away the fun of it all.

    Good choice. Modern consoles are just shit PC's anyway really.

    I'm quite lucky in that I get mine through the company and the I.T. bod there sorts it all out, but even if you have to buy your own the deals which you can get on Steam or GoG are well worth the switch anyway.

    Hard West was on Steam again for under £2 the other day. Fucking cracking game. A tactical Red Dead Redemption meets Satanism (I hope they do a sequel with Billy "The Kid" Davies )

    Then you can also emulate all the Retro games from past eras too.

    This game is beautiful, the anime cut scene when you load the game is incredible. I can tell I’m going to enjoy this a lot.

    Artistic escape on gamespass.

    It was just after my time gaming, by the time it came out I was in my early 20's and fully beer + fanny + gig orientated, so I only ever had a few quick goes on a mates machine a few times.

    Now I'm geek massive again, I'm gonna try and get an emulator sorted for one so I can catch up on what I've been missing

    Only just got to "D" in the SNES and Megadrive library. Fuckinghell, this is one weird game.......Deae Tonosama Appare Ichiban........

    Some of the enemies are Kabaddi players who keep chanting "Kabaddi" as they attack you. Fuckin Kabaddi!
