  1. Gaming in 2017

    Polybius has a release date of the 10th May. It looks fantastic so hoping it will live up to expectation. I will probably preorder as I love Jeff Minter.
  2. Overwatch

    Managed to hit diamond but the toxity at that level is putting me off the game tbh. I probably received a dozen messages over 6 months playing battle mercy and attack Torb in gold/silver which was probably deserved. I'm now averaging one a night for not pocket healing Pharahs because they all believe they are the chosen one. Torb still works at this level and is actually my most successful character. I still will religiously pick attack Torb on Kings Row as flanking the enemy and setting up turrets behind them is a lot of fun.
  3. Paladins

    The F2P hero shooter, Paladins, has recently hit the PS4 as a beta and I have enjoyed playing it. It is very similar to Overwatch, for those used to that game, with a few subtle differences. The champions are more rounded, meaning that supports and tanks can output a fair amount of damage. There is no hero switching (rather there are moba-esque upgrades you can level up to counter certain set ups). Ultimates are far less powerful meaning the inevitable team wipes you get in Overwatch are rarely seen. It's obviously less polished & not as well voice acted but it's a decent game in its own right. So far it's not pay2win. All the champions can be unlocked with the founders pack (around £10-15) and the loadout cards can be bought with minimal grinding (I have been able to get the cards I want for any hero by about level 4). Aside from the founders pack, I can't see any reason to spend money in the game as the cosmetics are very basic at the moment. The only incentive may be to purchase xp boosts to decrease the time it takes to get into competitive play (at the moment it will probably take 20-30 hours to qualify)
  4. Overwatch

    Orisa's lack of mobility seems to be a big crutch. She is easy meat if isolated or if the opposition holds the high ground. Her ultimate is great though so I think she may feature in a few surprise team comps.
  5. Persona 5

    Persona 3 and 4 are fantastic - worth picking up a Vita just to play them. Expect a fair amount of reading though - They both have long setups IIRC. The only link between 3 & 4 comes in the fighting game which is pretty fun with some good stories.

  7. What game you currently playing?

    I really like the Witness but it definitely falls short in some areas. The puzzles are some of the hardest and rewarding I've come across (f*ck tetris though). The problem is that you will hit a dead end on a number of occasions and be left with the choice to either hit your head against a brick wall staring at the same puzzle for ages or give up and move on. Either way, it does break the flow and immersion. When you do finally find that abstract solution, though, it is very satisfying - only once did I think the logic was cheap. The easter eggs are very nice. I've been watching a lot of James Burke videos on Youtube thanks to this game.
  8. Super Bowl LI

    Hightower has now made two of the great game saving plays to help his team win superbowls. The tackle on Lynch at the one yard line gets better every time I watch it and the sack on Ryan stopped an almost certain touchdown (Robinson is about to be wide open down the middle of the field at the moment Ryan gets hit). Given the drama in both games I wonder if people (outside of New England) will even remember them in 10 years?
  9. Super Bowl LI

    An astonishing comeback helped by some really bad calls by the Falcons. Matt Ryan did not choke but his coaching staff certainly did. I still can't work out why they decided to run a five step dropback from the shotgun on 2nd and 11 from the 20 or why they thought exclusively playing a cover 1 in a shootout wouldn't gas their dbs As for goat picks - I still have Jerry Rice, Jim Brown, Otto Graham, LT (the original one) and Hutson above Brady but he's definitely in the conversation.
  10. Super Bowl LI

    This game is a tough one to call. My gut feeling is that Matt Ryan will show up (doesn't do a Cam) and if he does I think he has too many weapons for Belichick to stop.
  11. Overwatch

    Ban plz

  13. Gaming in 2017

    Battlefront has been my favourite game of the current gen so Battlefront 2 is my most anticipated game. I predict it will be well received but sales will be poor, mirroring Watch dogs 2 and Titanfall 2 in that respect.
  14. Game of the Year 2016

    GOTY = Overwatch. Best DLC - Battlefront Death Star.
  15. No Man's Sky

    Not really. It's more likely to appeal to an older person. Kerbal Space Program my be worth a look.
