    Agatha Christie: Murder On The Orient Express (2023)
    I went back for a 2nd playthrough to mop up all remaining trophies, including the platinum.

    I am still part way through ABC Murders, i need to get back to that game at some point.

    How how are you finding it so far? I'm not a big fan of the cel-shaded esque art style.

    Not looked at the other games yet in the series, i don't mind the look of ABC though I may find the others a step up in graphics and design. I have enjoyed the puzzles so far in ABC.

    I haven't played the middle two yet, and though I enjoyed them both, I preferred 'Murder....'. I keep checking Microids' site in the hope of finding news on the next Poirot game. Death On The Nile would be a good one.

    Pleny of good locations for Death on the Nile, I will buy Murder on the Orient Express when I complete the first two.

    I have only briefly looked at the Holmes games I wonder if they are more or less the same as the Poirot games.

    I haven't played the latest ones. But TESTAMENT was good, CRIMES & PUNISHMENTS was better. DEVIL'S DAUGHTER was ok, though I don't understand why it was so hated. I have not played Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One, as it is a digital only game, no physical release is planned.

    It always saddens me when modern day video games don’t have physical media releases. Call me old fashioned, but I always feel comfortable with physical media.

    Exactly how I feel. Which is a shame, as I would have bought it in a heartbeat.

    Same here. My dad stopped me from selling my Nintendo 64, and both that console and his advice are two of the greatest gifts he’s ever given me.

    Just pre ordered and installed Tomb Raider I-III Remastered, I decided to purchase it on Xbox as apposed to STEAM despite being a few extra pounds. The games will be playable a week tomorrow, can't wait.

    I really want to check these out but I feel like I'm incorrectly recalling just how easy or hard they were. I know it'll be nostalgic as hell to return to though so I'll probably pick it up when I get paid next week.

    I remember TR2 being very difficult for me in any case compared to the other 2 games in the trilogy. TR3 will be great nostalgia as i played that more than any game.

    I have tried playing all 3 games on STEAM over the last few years though had problems with glitches and controls, finally being able to play these games again without issues is as much a relief than anything else.

    It did just occur to me how the games are saved on Xbox and STEAM may differ if they are the same as the originals, I may have made a mistake buying the Xbox version.

    Yeah just the idea that any bugs and glitches might be fully wiped out and it'll play in a way more cohesive and natural way has me super excited to see what they've come up with.

    Game play starts at 3:48, two days to go this looks great.

    The frame rate hikes alone are exciting. I was getting worried seeing almost no coverage or gameplay for this with only two days until it releases. That's never a good sign.

    Just been watching the opening section of TRIII looks incredible, the monkey steals items on the jungle floor I don't remember that happening, admittedly I always shot the monkeys. TRIII one of my favourite games, it was so atmospheric.

    Disappointingly, they are a digital only release. I have fuzzy memories of playing them back in the day, so it would have been nice to have revisited them Remastered. :( Another side of gaming that is becoming the norm, which makes me worry for the future.

    I try to purchase physical copys when I can though over 50% of my games are digital now though I have a lot of STEAM games. There is not the same resistance as there is with dvds and bluray in gaming unfortunately, the older I get the more proud I am of my vast physical film and TV collection.

    Tomb Raider 1-3 Remastered - 15 Things You Should Know BEFORE YOU BUY


    I had no idea it was play anywhere on Xbox so can play it on my pc also, relieved I did not opt for the STEAM version.

    Playing TRIII wow they have done such an incredible job here, I am constantly toggling between the OG and remaster for comparison with the touch of a button. I am in no hurry to progress. compelled to take in all the sites and sounds of the jungle.

    I heard that TRIV may get a remaster if this trilogy is successful, the pre orders were encouraging so hopefully this will just be the start.

    Edited:After having a quick look at all the games in the trilogy, playing them now in order. What I love about TR 1 - 3 is nothing is sign posted or really made easy, despite playing these games numerous times over the decades :-O I still have to figure out what to do.

    Edited: just entered the Lost Valley in TR remaster, this is where you really see the leap in graphics.

    New Tomb Raider Lara Croft Design Revealed...
    Crystal Dynamics has released a new design for Lara Croft, merging her classic and reboot looks for the first time.

    I'd be surprised if she wears OG Lara's booty shorts. I like both the OG Lara, and Survival Lara, so it's a win for me. What concerns me, is the news of Embracer Group laying off 1000+ staff, and cancelling 29 games!

    Its not the costume, Lara just looks a bit hard faced to me, its only one image admittedly.

    That is rough with so many layoffs at Embracer, I wonder if titles swill be sold off. It also makes owners of digital games that little bit more nervous if existing games get pulled that have been purchased.

    I can't stop playing TR remastered, its taking over my life lol Just tried playing with modern control's I don't know how anyone would enjoy the game using this method way too restrictive with Lara's movements, Tank controls is the only way to play these OG games IMO.

    Purchased the Crysis Trilogy on PS5, its currently £9.99 in a sale (as a PS Plus member).

    So my backlog currently is:

    - Ghost of Tsushima (currently focused on)
    - Crysis 2
    - Crysis 3
    - Death Stranding
    - Resident Evil 4 Remake (finish Separate Ways and perhaps a second play through)
    - Kena Bridge of Spirits
    - Gran Turismo 7

    Additionally, when PS Plus updates on 20th, there will also be

    - Need for Speed Unbound
    - The Outer Worlds
    - Lego Jurassic Park
    - Resistance Retribution

    And at some point I would like Robocop Rogue City and the Avatar game.

    I need more time :-O

    @Mallory, I need more time AND money. I have a backlog myself (that also includes Crysis Remastered) but I'm now eyeing some DLC for a game, Horizon: Forbidden West on the PS5, and a few others. I can't help it.

    Too many games, / not enough hours in a day, I know that pain.

    Currently, I am cycling between God Of War (2018), Kingdoms Of Amalur: Re-Reckoning and Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter.

    T-Rex looks cool... Tomb Raider featuring Lara Croft? I did hear rumors Lara may not be the main character,

    Taking a break from TRIII remastered, the combination of Shiva, Piranhas, King Cobra's and psychotic Monkeys my nerves are shredded lol I forgot how unforgiving this game is, the slightest mistake the game punishes you.

    Shiva looks even more menacing in this remaster, the constant thud of footsteps really gets to you lol

    I haven't played Skull & Bones myself (£65 for a game that could easily be a F2P game? Ubi can go and ____ themselves), but here is a comparison of the sip boarding between Skull & Bones (2024) and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (2013):



    How have we gone so backwards?

    I reckon that inn a years time, Ubisoft will pull the plug on it. I just don't see it being successful. It's as if Ubisoft are determined to make players like microtransactions, the GAAS model etc...

    Didn't they even brand it the first "AAAA" game? What a joke. The whole GAAS model is killing the gaming landscape for me.

    They did indeed. How can they be so tone deaf to what players want?
