It's straight after the palace I believe where I stopped playing the singleplayer, I felt like I'd experienced all the game had to offer by then.

Tell me about it! I thought you'd already completed the game? You have to free (or kill) the monster in chains. There are 3 levers in total to find. Took me an age to find the last one and then I noticed one of those doors you need to use the gauntlet to open! Did this last night but not had time to play tonight as I finished work late. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to find the bastard last one and kill him/it.


I have finished it but only once and it was back in January 2015. I can’t remember that much about the game after you meet Antanas.

It's not no, the Palace is the third place you go to after the Train Station (starting area) and super market.

Just looked it up - it was actually the Tower of London I got up to, which is way past the palace (I had them confused in my head). Apparently that's just about halfway, but I hadn't done the nursery no.

This is another problem with the game, lack of directions! I was close to giving up as it is as clear as mud where to go next. Maps in these games showing areas previously explored, unexplored areas and areas you've been to previously but now have something new should be mandatory with punishments up to and including the death penalty being available for those developers who think a map is unnecessary.

Yes?

Shadow Warrior 2 - PS4 - my word this is fun. So many guns and interesting enemies. Just old school fun.

Been playing TLoU multiplayer; very diff to Uncharted mp, it's all very sneaky, sneaky and team based. Have had lots of fun creeping about with my bow and silenced pistol!

One of the worst opening acts of any game ever. Sadly it doesn't get an awful lot better from there.

The final lever was right in front of the giant creature... figures. Anyway Anhilator is down now.

This game (Lords of the Fallen) makes no frigging sense at times. I’ve spent my entire time so far cutting a swathe through strawberry float off big demons with relative ease but the second I come up against normal human enemies the wreck me in seconds.

Ford Racing 3 - PC

This is a perfect example of why i love b-tier racing games, which don't really exist anymore. The tracks have a pleasingly chunky arcade aesthetic and it is far more inventive with modes and race types and variety of things to do while driving in circles than much bigger games which have come out in the intervening decade or so.
Image
There are relay races where you have to change cars at the end of each lap; time trials where you have to collect green tokens and avoid the red ones while still finishing a lap in the allotted time; races where you are in a less powerful car than your opponents but can fill a boost meter by sticking to the visible racing line and duel races where you start against one opponent but each lap they respawn ahead of you and increase in number - 1 on the first lap, 2 on the second etc.

The admitedly small single player campaign is arranged into championships where, unlike Forza Motorsport 5, every race matters because you are going for the highest points total at the end of each series. There are also per-car challenge events which add to the volume of tailored stuff to do.

Unfortunately the campaign has set difficulties so at least 2/3rds of the game is incredibly easy, but its enjoyable nonetheless, and a kind of sad reminder of how good arcade racing games were compared to now.

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

It's a pretty solid game but it doesn't feel like Gears at all currently. I figure it will pick up in the next few chapters (going to the Locust grave site).

Agreed. The worst part of it is the literal opening, the flashbacks to the old games, is so strawberry floating HYPE I was like "oh yeah!! here we strawberry floating go!!!", then it ends in about 15 minutes and you shoot robots for the next 3-4 hours. :|

Hah, yes. I'm glad it wasn't just me who found this. Not played this for a couple of days but last night played past the two brothers and said many swear words when fighting the humans. Given your character is human, I guess there is some logic to other humans putting up a fight. Just the last fight to do now, but the attempt last night did not go well so I'm expecting a frustrating time ahead.

Yes?

It’s especially annoying as a few minutes ago a god just told you how weak their army is without you yet they kick your arse. Tips for the last boss, fire resistance shards are your friend and avoid the red mist.
