Hmm maybe they have a new IP in the works then? Can’t imagine another Red Dead would come out so quick.

I don’t want GTA to become Ass Creed, but Vice City and San Andreas were great and they just used the engine from 3.


Maybe they’ll just remake those 3 for this generation lol.

An enhanced collection of the first 3 games for PS5 would be pretty cool, and likely sell really, really well. San Andreas, according to Wiki anyway, was the only one ported on PS3/360, so 3 and Vice City haven't been re-released since the PS2/Xbox days. So I'd imagine there's a lot of younger gamers out there that never played those games.

I find it unusual that they haven't been re-released in all this time though, so I have some doubt about Wiki's reliability there. But I've searched elsewhere and haven't come across any sort of ports or anything beyond San Andreas. It's interesting that they basically have left past games in the series as stand-alone titles of their generation, but just can't let GTA5 go with its numerous ports that's soon to span 3 generations in November.

I hit the credits on Returnal!! I was hoping it was the last world since it was really really tough to even make it to the boss. They send you underwater with different physics and kamikaze squid. Quite terrifying. Excellent game despite all my complaints. It was addicting and I only ever wanted to play something else when I was mad at a bad end to a good run lol. Very proud of myself for gutting it out to the end (unless there’s more???) I don’t think it was the most difficult game I’ve beaten (hello Crash 4), but definitely up there.

Switch 2 ... does not have 4k?? Doesn't seem to be all that more powerful either, with the biggest upgrade coming from the new OLED screen. I figured the whole point of a New Switch was to get games like Call of Duty on there, but Nintendo apparently doesn't care. It's New 3DS XL all over again, but this time I won't be seduced by a limited edition Majora's Mask design. :hahaha:

That goddamn son of a bitch!







Finally started Ratchet and Clank and my goodness the graphics of this game are mind blowing. It's the first game to put the power of the PS5 to the test and 100% delivers.

Steam Deck looks kinda hot. Dunno if I can pay $400 ($530/$650 really since they have decent storage and SSD) Will need to see it in action first.

Edit* People on reddit are speculating that since you can install Windows, you could download the Microsoft app and use this with Game Pass. That … might be something worth spending $500+ dollars on. I could sell my Series S and use this as Xbox Switch.

Horizon 2 moves to 2022. Disappointing, but not surprising.

Really opens up the game of the year race though, as HFW was the clear frontrunner. Maybe an indie dev will finally get the big prize!

Resident Evil
Returnal
Ratchet and Clank
One of Halo/Forza
Dying Light 2 if its released

Maybe Solar Ash for the indie? Looks cool but might not have enough to it. It Takes Two got good reviews but I don’t know of anyone playing it. Hades would have cleaned up this year. :funny:

I guess Returnal would be the favorite now? Seems like an odd choice, but I can’t see any of these other choices hanging in there for long. Housemarque isn’t indie anymore, but they would be close enough and have a lot of beloved titles behind them like Resogun, Dead/Alien Nation, Super Stardust and Nex Machina.

So, what's on the Flava'd last played list now?

Over the past month and more, I replayed most of Tales of Vesperia, and put some more runs into Hades. We got Skyward Sword, but I've just been watching the hubby play through it for the first time so far.

Post Re: Last game you played?
Well, since you asked :P :

PS5- Still Ratchet and Clank. I'm at the point where I can start the final mission, but just kinda grinding my weapon stats up (even though I don't really need to since the game is pretty easy even on hard.) The graphics still blow my mind everytime I open it up. 60 FPS with Ray Tracing is the way of the future.

Switch - I bought Snap at Gamestop with my Birthday coupon (~$44) but have not started it up yet.

Smolbox Game Pass - Knockout City has been very fun. It's a dodgeball game, in various urban settings. Very obviously inspired by Splatoon both in gameplay and graphics. It's not as addictive, I usually only do like 2-3 matches at a time (vs the 'wait it's been two hours?' sensation of Splatoon), but I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a fun online multiplayer game.


And

Darkest Dungeon is another roguelike classic that I had been putting off (until Hades made it one of my top genres.) It's a turn based battle system, but the challenge of the game is managing your resources (if you run out of torches then the enemies hit twice as hard, if you run out of food each member of your party takes recurring dmg, etc...) and stress level of your party (if they hit a certain point they develop negative traits like "greed" where a single party member will steal your treasure, "masochism" where they will take more damage, etc..) I like the game so far, but would put it a rank or two below the champs of this genre like Hades (the reigning, defending, undisputed...), Faster Than Light (TNT) , Returnal (Womens) , Children of Morta (Tag) and Rogue Legacy (I ran out of belts.)

And

Flight Sim is ... beautiful but I get bored in a few minutes ... If my plane doesn't crash by then that is :funny:

Is he using the joycon like a wiimote or using pro controller? It was probably the one AAA game that I actually loved the motion controls on and felt like it justified my purchase of the Wii.

Motion controls (Joy-Cons). We had to get him another pair of Joy-Cons to play though since his came with our original Switch, and the drifting had gotten out of control. He mostly plays Civilization, and besides a few times when it acted up badly, drifting wasn't too much of an inconvenience in that game. (Thankfully managed to find the awesome Zelda Joy-Cons at MSRP too!)

From my perspective, it appears to play very similarly to the Wii version (which I played). The motion controls appear perhaps more precise even, which is impressive since they were already great on the Wii. The only "problem" I see him having while watching him play is when he needs to do perform a forward thrust with the Joy-Con. It doesn't register too well for him, but I think it's more of how he's just moving the Joy-Con than anything. He likes to swing/move a bit too much, so his thrusts tend to begin as swings and register as such most of the time. But he's improving that attack (when I tell him he doesn't need to move around as much!).

The graphics are also a noticeable improvement. I don't think it was displayed well in the trailers, but it does look better. It's no graphical marvel obviously, but it's easier on the eyes now.

I probably won’t be getting it anytime soon since the game is still somewhat fresh for me. Happy to hear that others are getting to experience it for the first time though.

Speaking of: Hades has launched on other systems! I know I said I didn’t want to double dip, and it’s already on game pass, but the physical Ps5 version with the artbook for $30 is so very tempting. 60 FPS…. *Homer donut noises*

Do it. Just think of it as paying almost full price for a game versus its indie price. It's more than good enough to warrent a $50/60 overall price tag. Plus, you can then play it on all your consoles.

I double dipped last year (during a sale) so I could have it on both our Switch consoles. This was before the physical release with the artbook and soundtrack was announced though... I've been tempted to just buy it a third time anyway for the artbook (even if it's very basic).

Hopefully SuperGiant releases a full-scale artbook by Dark Horse down the road for it. It's guaranteed to be a big seller.

I bought it, but digitally. :funny:

Felt gluttonous, especially since I’m supposed to be saving for vacation, but no regrets. Playing it with the highly superior Dualsense controller makes it worth it all by itself. I did 3 runs last night (though the first doesn’t really count), and while I was hoping to come in here and say I topped Hades already, it turns out that Elysium is still a death zone on PS5. :funny:

Have you attempted or even beaten it in the past on 16 or 32 heat yet?

Attempted, yes. Succeeded? Nope lol. Always get overwhelmed in Elysium. You have to beat it on 16 to get the platinum trophy on ps5 though!

Maybe this will help you and me both! Sept. 17th release date (based on the pulled listing), which is the one-year anniversary of the game's release.
