    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?

    I guess they know at the end of the day someone's gonna rush to buy their products day one regardless. It is sad how quickly they fell from crushing it to crushing gamers' hopes instead. They're dead to me at this point, unless they revitalize and refresh and offer something that's not cookie cutter and is genuinely worthy of my time again.

    Playing TRII remastered, the first level really does drop you in the deep end with the gauntlet of traps and 2 Trex's. God knows how I managed to complete these games, admittedly 28 years I had more patience and was awake till stupid o'clock in the morning playing them.

    Finally got an X box series X so let me go through some of the games i played on it

    Gotham Knights: 8/10 honestly its a fantastic game and doesn’t get the credit it deserves. I played as nightwing and had a blast my one issue is that i wish you can become batman at the end

    Hitman 2:6/10 not the worst espionage game but not the best it scares me that in terms of just the game no dlc its like 8 levels only… i want a full bond game not 8 levels and then a bunch of random dlc

    Judgement: 5/10 a fun mix of La noire and street fighter… not amazing not bad

    @Risico007, to be fair to Hitman, those levels are way more intricate than they seem on the surface and are meant to be replayed over and over again in pursuit of challenges and unlocks. The full World of Assassination release has all the levels + DLC levels in one game now.

    Maybe the Hitman and Bond game won't be for me. I can't stand doing the same mission over and over. Lazy story telling to me. What if this happened instead? Ok that's easy. Engineer me a new mission instead please. Advance the plot. I don't want to play in limbo.

    You're assuming the Bond game will follow the exact same formula as the Hitman series, which I don't believe it will. I imagine it'll be a mix of open world but linear, mostly leaning into the latter. There's little "storytelling" in the new Hitman trilogy, outside of the pre-and-post-mission cutscenes. Each mission really is setting you up to kill several targets, maybe with a random objective thrown in, and the exploration leads you to finding new and inventive ways to kill them and escape.

    I think anyone playing the Hitman series for the "plot" is setting themselves up for severe disappointment.

    I guess I require a little motivation to kill, and appreciate a build up and pay off. The last Hitman thing I watched was an impressive speedrun, but I don't personally enjoy that play style. So you're right. Hitman is just not for me. I know that. Does that mean I should be worried for the Bond game? I would think so. But again, that's me.

    Autobahn Police Simulator 3 (PS5)
    Ever since Farming Simulator, back on the PS3, consoles have had a growing genre of simulator games, and this is one of the more recent ones.
    It's low budget, but quite fun (unlike that Taxi Driver Simulator, that was shockingly bad). The last thing I did, was attend an accident between 2 cars and a herd of cows.

    I'd like to try out some sim games but none of them ever really grab me, and the few that do wind up too hard or complex for my tastes. I loved one of the older Tropico titles for a while but it left me juggling too much and I gave up eventually when everything turned to waste.

    I have played few, and I find them relaxing. At least the ones that worked. I liked the Bus Simulator, as you actually created a company; bought busses and hire drivers. Then when you would go out driving, you would see your employees driving their designated routes.

    Playing Syphon Filter (PS1) for the first time. I'm very into it but I've got to a level on a roof fighting a helicopter I just cannot get past.

    Arkham Asylum. One of my all-time favorites! Though Arkham City topped it with the story and bosses, Asylum maintains the best voice acting and atmosphere IMO.

    I agree, and it feels like the Riddler trophies are all realistically winnable.
  • Asylum is still my favorite of the series.

    My favorite is tight between Asylum and City. I think City’s objectively the collective best Batman video game ever made, but Asylum’s flavor is just as appealing. Asylum has advantages such as being easier to 100%, the best environments, and being the most unique in the franchise for its linearity and simplicity, both I’d consider strengths. I also love the streak of horror to it. City also has its advantages, namely improved combat, much better bosses, and capturing a more classic vibe with its broader selection of villains and open exploration in the city. Ultimately, you can’t go wrong with either!

    Origins I find a very fun and underrated entry. There is an unfortunate lack of polish to it, and some rough pacing issues, but still a cool story (I think Origins, Asylum, and City all have great stories, but City the most) and excellent bosses in particular. With Arkham Knight, I did not like the direction they took the story in, and found the campaign very underwhelming and the Batmobile gameplay unsatisfying. The basic gameplay is the most polished, though, and the graphics of course the prettiest, but it’s too overwhelming and too predictable. Interestingly, the side content is my favorite part of Knight, especially dealing with Professor Pyg!

    I’m thinking:
    1. City - 10/10
    2. Asylum - 10/10
    3. Origins - 8.5/10
    4. Knight - 7/10

    I love City and Asylum equally in my heart, but I do believe City is the best choice if someone can only ever play one Batman game for the most complete and well-made experience.

    God Of War (2018)
    Going for the plat on NG+, and feeling like a GOD. Fighting level four monsters, at level 9.

    And though I haven't played it, I have been looking into what archery is like in Elden Ring. I can't decide whether to give it a go or not.

    You really should play Elden Ring at least once in your life, especially now since the big DLC release is coming in just three months. I can't wait to return to it.

    Yeah, I noticed that upcoming edition. I might as well hold off buying it for the time being.

    Resumed Tomb Raider II Opera house section, they have done an amazing job here looks fantastic. Man this game does not help you in any way which is good, half the time I don't immediately know what some levers had activated or opened, I recall getting lost a lot in this game years ago especially on the later levels. lol

    The fact you hardly get any medi pacs makes it more difficult. Just killed a literal terminator, if I did not have my uzi's I would have had no chance the henchman had way too much health.

    61m8+0g3KRL._AC_SL1500_.jpg

    Arrived this morning. I haven't tried it yet, I might install it later. Incredibly hard to get in the UK, because it wasn't sold here. Limited Run Games released it on disc in the US, for a limited time only. I tried to get it on PS5, but that is even harder to find. I don't care though, I have one of my favourite games, to play on modern consoles. Now if I can just track down a copy of the first game...

    God Of War (2018)
    Just one trophy stands in my way of the platinum. Not a hard one, just time consuming. I have to farm Mist Echoes in Niflheim to 'Retrieve all treasure from the Workshop’s centre chamber'. I have 2 realm tears left, needing 15000 and 20000 realm tears each. I can get around 7000 Mist Echoes with each run of the maze. So another 5-6 runs should be enough.

    I have faith in you.

    If you ever want to add me on PlayStation, you should (Creasy007). It'd be fun to see your trophy progress from time to time.

    I'm currently going back and forth between my Platinum chase for San Andreas for the millionth time and going for my second Cyberpunk 2077 Platinum, albeit this time the proper PS5 version that's a night and day difference from the garbage state it was in on release.

    I'll add you on Playstation, it'll come from TheCadManFan. I still haven't got around to Cyberpunk. Now that there is a native PS5 version, i'll have to look into it.

    God Of War
    I did it. It took me 5 runs of the maze to get 36000 Mist Echoes, enough to close the two realm tears, and get the trophy + the platinum.

    @MajorDSmythe, you really should. I'm not too far into my first playthrough (I really want to finally finish up San Andreas again) but it's heavily improved.

    Congratulations on the Platinum! How many do you have now? I use PSNProfiles, it's a great way to track my progress without having to deal with the garbage trophy layout system on the actual console.

    I use the PS App, for the same reason. God Of War is my 21st platinum.

    I'll have to add it to my list. I have been keeping an eye on it for some time, after its less than stellar launch.

    Just about to complete the Palace Midas section in Tomb Raider remaster, they have done such an incredible job with this especially the lighting and water effects. I replayed Anniversaryy last year so some sections i have been expecting other things to happen lol

    I am playing the trilogy simultaneously as I do get stuck for a moment as these games can be difficult so playing one of the other games gives me a bit of respite before I return to a difficult section.

    It looks good, I mean, it's still a 20 year old game underneath, and this isn't a remake. Revisiting this now, and this is going to sound odd, but I don't want a new Bloodrayne game. I am too afraid that the dev team will use that phrase that all fans dread... "made to appeal to a new audience".

    And I wish that the PS5 had an Activity Feed, like its predecessor. I have amassed a handful of clips and images already, and I would have shared them to my feed.

    United Assault - Normandy '44
    Low budget (by todays standards, looks like a early PS2 era game) Rogue-lite set in World War 2. What's worse than how this game looks, is the wildly inconsistent ai. Some enemy soldiers will stop and stare at a wall, while others will kill you with a submachine gun, from a distance that should require a sniper rifle. Plus the ai spawning in ridiculous places. No enemy soldier around this corner, i'll just turn around and check the other direction, and would you look at this, I just got shot in the back. On the upside, it has been barely over a day since I installed it, and I am already over 80% through the trophies.
