Silent Hill 2, FTR.
Let's get this shit started again.
Let's get this shit started again.
Talking of remasters, the Silent Hill HD remaster package for the PS3 is sort of shitty. That's been done to death, though, so I'll talk about my impressions of the second game, nearly ten years after I played the first one.
*Graphics are really dated, but that is not helped by the terrible remaster which perplexingly has removed most of the fog from the game. Still though, I love how pixellated the textures are. Makes the game a lot scarier.
*Combat is clunky as hell. Too used to last-gen games being smooth and easy. Again, though, it suits the intended effect.
*One thing that is genuinely annoying, however, is the lack of a HUD, meaning I have pointlessly died three or four times, so far, just because I wasn't immediately aware of how little health I had left.
*Similarly, I have managed to get a quarter of the way through the game without being aware of the stomp attack. That would have made things a lot easier for me.
*The game really should be played on easy combat difficulty and hard puzzle difficulty. The fights with the mannequins and other beasts are pointless and just get in the way of the story and general exploration.
*The terrible voice acting makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Gutted that it's an XB1 exclusive. Made by the same guy who did Deadly Premonition which I really enjoyed. That was strange, to say the least.My girlfriend is playing D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die while I'm immobile on the couch with a jarred neck. It's really entertaining to watch as it's a quirky little detective story. It's free so you should check it out.
Borrowing Fifa 15 off a mate at the minute.
As with every iteration, it does some things better and others worse.
My main gripe on this one is the computer switching your controlled player when you don't want them to, and all these needless animations they put into the game, such as watching the keeper put the ball down for a goal kick
Playing H1Z1 atm, is great fun. A few bugs, but that is to be expected in alpha. The developers are giving regular updates as well, one coming tonight, was one on Friday as well. Only problem I am having is being killed so much.Smite
Never played a MOBA before but it's pretty enjoyable.
Also, I'll be giving H1Z1 a go later. Hopefully it'll give DayZ the kick up the arse it needs.
The lack of Silent Hill 4 and Origins upsets me.

Yep, they need to put some kind of mechanics in which encourage team work, and less random shooting. damage to items when shot at or hit etc would work. I enjoyed DayZ mod, but the standalone is just dull. They have taken so fucking long to get it out, and it still is barely playable.Unfortunately these sort of games are just rife with people who like to kill on sight.
I ended up getting a refund. It was okay, and I'll probably end up re-buying it, but for the time being I thought I'd get my money back until there are a few more patches. Although I've got to say I'm impressed with the speed and frequency patches are released. The DayZ team have a lot to learn from such a thing. A lot more atmospheric than DayZ too, helped by the superior sound.
Every now and then, I go on the PSN in the hope that Silent Hill 4 has been added. Alas, I am always disappointed.
I never managed to complete it on PS2. I can't remember why but I did really enjoy it and then something stopped me half way through, perhaps the disc broke etc.
