    @Creasy47 Basically it only becomes an issue when I get to a quest called 'The Molecular Level' when you're forced into picking a faction. Up to that point I am ok.

    I'm sure you already know what you're doing, being distracted aside, but I saw someone post this flow chart the other day and saved it for myself for whenever I get around to the PS5 version of this. It's been a long time since I got the PS4 Plat so I'm bound to have forgotten most of this:

    Thanks for that, very useful.

    I also picked up the Tomb Raider Trilogy on PS3 today for £12, looking forward to revisiting Legend and Underworld after F4.

    I've been wanting to check those out still too and I see they're now on sale on the PS Store. Might be the perfect time for me to do so.

    I have been building up my PS2 collection over the last few weeks, and one of my latest purchases...

    MV5BODZkMTg4ZGItNWNlMy00NDVkLTg1ODAtYTE2ZGQ2NDE5NDRiXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNjExODE1MDc@._V1_.jpg

    I have had my eye on this game for years, but never pulled the trigger, because I heard bad things about it. Took the plunge and... it's actually not bad.

    I've been on a "retro" kick lately, getting myself an old school TV, an N64, and TWINE, and I couldn't be happier. Next, I'd love to get a proper PS2 and PS3 again.

    If you do go the ps2/ps3 route, get a Kaico HDMI Convertor*. I began with a Scart to HDMI convertor from another company. Made some games 'barely acceptable' to play on a HD TV, while others were unplayable. Since switching to the Kaico, I have noticed a BIG difference. At the end of the day, it is still 20 year old technology, but it does make it more possible to play ps2 games on modern tvs. I have also been playing Gun and Max Payne 2, amongst others, on my ps2.

    This is the one i'm using:

    All you'll need, is a HDMI cable which isn't included.

    @MajorDSmythe, and it does well with reducing input lag? That's the major offender for me. I can forgive the darker brightness settings and the overall graphical inferiority but input lag is a big nonstarter for me. Appreciate the link, might have to look into those.

    And man, I had a stupid amount of fun with Gun when it released. I can't count how many times I played it in full.

    You sound like me, only with a PS5 instead of 2 & 3.

    I'm with you there too. My primary gaming and focus is always on the PS5 but it's nice to jump back to the past every now and then with some older favorites. I do want to get a PS3 because it'd be nice to get some trophies for my profile on there. I don't have any logged on my current account that I've only had since I got the PS4.

    I can't say that I have noticed any input lag. You won't need the adapter for the PS3, as it uses a HDMI cable. But definitely get one for the PS2.

    WW2 Soldier (PS2)
    Possibly the worst PS2 game i've played. Missions 1-3 are forced stealth, which isn't good, as the game has barely any stealth mechanics. Mission 4 is ridiculously quick, just ride the cable car up to the castle and don't die from gun fire coming from cable cars moving in the opposite direction. Mission 5 was half decent, no more stealth, just run 'n gun through the castle (this mission would have been even better with more objectives). Missions 6 & 7 were basically missions 2 & 3 in reverse, but with no more stealth and the added challenge of protecting the General.

    This System Shock remake on the PS5 is un-be-lievable. I've never played any version of the game until now and it's even more incredible than I expected.

    On leave and the weather is a bit naff so decided to get my original Xbox One with Kinect out of storage to play some Kinect Sports Rivals (I now have 3 Xbox's connected to my TV), bowling is probably the best game its the one I tended to play the most.

    i wish I had kept my Wii, table tennis and archery were great fun on that console, Goldeneye 007 was difficult though with the Wii controls... for me anyway.

    After 80ish hours, finally platinumed Fallout 4. Now moving onto the dlc as the season pass is currently on a decent promotion.

    Did the Institute and Brotherhood of Steel endings. Didnt care for either really. Basically as bad as each other. As they say… war… war never changes.

    If Yakuza 0 could be summed up as an unstoppable force (kinda...) meeting an immovable object. Then Yakuza 1 is like a Shakespearean tragedy. Nishiki spirals down a dark path, as he claws his way up the ranks. Dammit Nishiki, you had 1 job to do.

    After many stops and starts, I am determined to complete a playthough of this series (Yakuza 6 + the 2 Judgement games, I don't like what has been done to the series since).

    Tomb Raider 2: Remastered, I just completed the underwater section and it was great fun especially The Deck level which took a bit of time for me to remember what to do. What I like about the earlier TR games is things are not made obvious, and I refuse to play the game with the clue icons activated. Medi packs are quite rare in this game compared to the other two games in the original trilogy which force the player to be more cautious and makes the game more difficult, which is good.

    On to Tibet next and some fun on the snow bike.

    20 years have passed since the events of the first game. Jack is older, greying, more gruff but still a badass. His marriage to Angela has long since broken down, their child passed away and she blames Jack. But this time Jack isn't alone, as he has taken on a young streetwise protégé with attitude, Leeza X.

    If made today, this would probably be written off as woke. We play as Leeza before we even play as Jack. Though this one lacks the satirical attitude of the original game, I think this one plays better.

    Tomb Raider Remastered just completed the game, the end boss Natla seemed too easy the Boss fight before was more difficult.

    Great game its probably been 20 years since I last completed this at least, the new graphics really have breathed new life into it.

    Now I have unlocked the sun glasses and all outfits from the three games. I will play TR1 bonus level Unfinished Business then complete TR2 as right near the end in that game also.

    I didn't know how bad the animosity that Crystal Dynamics have towards Core Design (and the original Tomb Raider games), until recently. I stumbled across a video and.... jesus. Crystal Dynamics are still taking shots and the Core Design era of Lara. Now I am definitely picking up the trilogy.

    I don't like to get into politics online though there are a large amount of og TR fans that are not happy with the direction of Lara. Personally I like the og interpretation of the character, this appears to undermine current new game developers plans.

    I don't think it's politics, it seems like something deeper. They were spewing their hate towards the og era, even during the survivor trilogy. They don't have to like the og era, but to keep going on about it, when they are making their own Tomb Raider games...

    My favourite Lara/Tomb Raider game is Legend, but I am looking forward to revisiting the original trilogy when it's released in September. It's been so long since I played those early games.

    Yeah it does not create a good image especially when you are trying to promote a new product.

    I was wrong about Legend when I started replaying the games, it is one of the best in the series.

    The original 3 remastered are exceptional and quite difficult at times, I always play with the hints off and tank controls, some sections in the 2nd game really have had me puzzled for some time even though I completed the game on release... which is great.

    I really hope they remaster the 4th game, if they do I will be very happy.

    The perfect blend of beauty and athleticism. This might be considered wrong to say in 2024, but I miss the days of the Lara publicity models.

    I have had look on Steam at the Lara Croft art and cos players, Lara really is one of the greatest characters in games.

    Some of the models who portrayed Lara are stunning.

    Finally got my Turtle Beach controller to work with Tomb Raider The Last Revelation on Steam, for ages I just could not get crouch to work for some reason, I can now do a full play through again with controller. The contrast on Steam to how I played this on PlayStation back in 1999 is quite stark, the graphics are vastly superior I am quite impressed.

    A very shocking, bizarre, and cryptic announcement from Nintendo. I'm incredibly curious and dying to see more of this.
