PTC l1am shared a screenshot of the first wild animal he tamed in Far Cry Primal - a white wolf named Walter. Cute, eh? At least until you learn Liam killed and skinned him for an achievement. Actually... that's totally worth 20G. Sorry.
Whilst I personally enjoyed it, especially the ending, I thought the nature of the puzzles just begged for Pneuma to have been held back and released in virtual reality format.
With solutions based around perspective and line of sight, it would've been a perfect candidate for VR.
MrkDhn10 also enjoyed the experience, whilst things come full circle with the acknowledgement that he needs to head back to polish off the achievements, as does PTC Crisco. Meanwhile, Plas popped into the 100% Completed games thread to let everyone know he'd done exactly that. We got through a lot of lipstick this week, score whoring one and all.
Metalrodent also boarded the Pneuma train, pointing out just how picturesque it can be with a couple of screenshots.
Rodent shared a game clip as well, a Plasma wing fail (fast becoming a weekly segment) captured during a Grand Theft Auto V community game session. Outsmarted by pedestrian AI not once, twice, but three times, the video lives up to its name. Keep an eye on sabre wing2.
Words elude me following that clip, but I'll do my best to soldier on.
Forum newbie, Digital Infinite, posted a thread in which he asked (no doubt fuelled by excitement for the recently revealed Pokémon Sun and Moon): "What is the 'perfect' Pokémon game?" The replies were fairly uniform in echoing what most fans of the series have wanted for years - a fully fledged console adventure.
I always wanted to see a standard Pokémon adventure on home consoles.
PTC l1am replied, before Max elaborated.
I'd like a bigger version really... less linear, with more meaningful side quests and exploration.
Heavyarms_Kai has a seemingly unquenchable thirst for Warriors games, hoping to see Pokémon join the ever growing stable of franchise crossovers instead.
Pokémon isn't the only notable franchise celebrating its 20th anniversary this year; Capcom's Resident Evil also hits the lofty milestone. The news broke that RE 4, 5 and 6 would be making their way to Xbox One and PS4 in the coming months to celebrate, which prompted PTC Crisco to ponder if they were worth revisiting. The consensus was unsurprising - love for four, indifference towards five and hate for six, an "abomination" according to Johnbhoy69. I say they're all fantastic in their own right and recommend picking them up.
Jamie Rodriguez took to Facebook to comment on the news, which didn't surprise him following the ports of Resident Evil and Resident Evil Zer0.
Bananas indeed. The Xbox One & PS4 versions will be the seventh and eighth platforms Resi 4 is available on, following GameCube, PS2, PC, mobile, Xbox 360 and PS3.
*Edit: As Heavyarms_Kai pointed out on the forum, I somehow neglected to mention the Wii and recent Wii U Virtual Console versions. I even played the former...
On the opposite end of the shooter scale, Battlefield V was rumoured to be set during World War I this week and sparked conversation as a result. Having grown tired of modern shooter trends, the community would welcome the trip back in time with open arms.
I think WWI or WWII as a setting is the right choice - don't think I can stomach another modern shooter or anything else with jetpacks, wall-running, double jumps etc!
Confused Johnny made his stance clear, whilst fracturedrich shares similar feelings: "Not keen on MW or Black Ops of late."
Following concerns that the game might simply consist of potentially unexciting trench warfare, PTC l1am pointed out the opportunities for signature Battlefield vehicular combat.
... they've still got a few vehicles to chose from, such as the first ever tanks and biplanes. And I suppose they could even include cavalry if they wanted to go really left-field.
Cavalry would certainly be an interesting addition! Even more left field is PTC Bezza's idea, a sort of Battlefield collection featuring multiple eras based on their previous works.
... you could have [modern] maps... then Bad Company 2 style Vietnam era maps, some WWII maps like in BF 1942, futuristic 2142 style maps, and then the new WW1 era stuff.
