I am at the very last boss battle. Died once trying to beat him last night after about a 10 minute skirmish, looked at the clock, and realized it was 90 minutes later than I usually go to bed.

Cannot wait to get home today and beat the game.

This is no doubt one of the fastest playthroughs for myself in quite some time. Easily the fastest I have beet a First Person Shooter in the past 3 years, if not longer. In fact I do not usually beat most FPS's I play these days.

 

I just love this damn game. I truly do. And hope others come to enjoy, and even more important appreciate it, as much as I have.

 

I said earlier in the thread all I wanted from the game was to bring back good old fashioned fun in an FPS and I would be happy. I had no idea just how perfectly they would deliver.

I'm on the moon base right now, in the second part after you do that little outside excursion. Not sure how far through the game that is?  Absolutely loving this game though, have been so pleasantly surprised.

 

I've deliberately been taking it -very- slowly since Watchdogs was released and was a complete bust.  This game is going to have to keep me going for a while now! At least until TLoU comes out. I also managed to crack my CoD Ghosts disk so that is now unplayable, I know there is a disk replacement thing from Activation for ?12 but they want an original receipt which I don't have anymore. So my list of PS4 games to play is getting thin!

You are not that far from the end. Another two chapters I believe it is.

 

So I beat it as soon as I get home. When I say I was on the last boss I truly was on the last boss, and what a game. So good.

I seriously have not gone back and replayed a First Person Shooter since Half Life 2. I will go back and play this game. No doubt about it.

Thanks, really needed to know there's a moon base, that's not spoilery at all :angry:

Of course there's a moon base, it's Nazis that won the war, but don't spell it out like that! Arrgghh

Seems to be getting good reviews.  Wish it had MP.

Played for 115 minutes on Uber difficulty.

Feels nice, well optimized, but nonetheless has texture popping.

Gameplay is good, but it feels like it is my choice to go for stealth or terminator play style.

Also not hard enough.

Worth 60 so far.

Oops sorry :blush:  I didn't realise that was spoilery, i'm sure the moon base was in some ads/marketing material because that was out there way before the game was released.

Hahaha it's ok, i wasn't sure it was in there and didn't notice anything in official advertising, but guessed as much considering the lore...watching Iron Sky these again these days to add flavor to the experience :laugh:

Hmm, never played a Wolfenstein but you all keep saying it's excellent so I may have to pick it up. I think I'm pretty close to being exhausted with titanfall, and then I've got tomb raider, and then I'll need something else.

I did on purpose as I saw people saying to do so, and I saw

nothing??? What was I supposed to see?

 

Also while I get why people are saying they wish it had MP, I am personally incredibly happy it did not. It allowed them to take all their resources and put it towards the SP, hence why it is such a great experience. I cannot help but think if it did include MP, it would not be as good as it is. Perhaps I am wrong, but I think this is a perfect example of why MP is not always necessary, and in fact can detract from the SP as resources would have been used towards it instead.

Agree 100%. They clearly sat down at some point, looked at their resources, skills, deadlines etc and made that decision not to have Multiplayer for a reason.  If the game wasn't that good you could say 'What were they even spending the time on?' (Ahem, watchdogs), but you can clearly see that they spent a lot of effort on the single player game and sacrificing MP made good sense.

 

There is no reason to have shoehorned Multiplayer especially if it would have come at the expense of anything else.  It is a great game and has some replayability.

 

Perhaps they might do it for the next game now that they know there is a big appetite for a solid, back-to-basics FPS game like wolfenstein.

Or maybe a dlc or free update like just cause 2? That would be great. Glad they focused on the single player side though.. Still enjoy it more than most multiplayer games recently.

You don't see anything actually, but you hear the chopper getting closer and Anya calling out for BJ. It seems pretty obvious they will wind up delaying the bomb just long enough to rescue BJ for the sequel :D

Ahhhhhh okay I did hear the chopper too but just figured it was them flying away as I missed Anya calling out for BJ. That is fantastic. (Y)

Truly hope there is another game done by everyone involved in this game.

In retrospect, this game suffers from its check point save system.

I noticed that too, more than once I thought I had to start over when I was going for my platinum (luckily restart level fixed the issue at the time)

Finally beat the game last night. Incredible game, had so much fun.

Loved the final 2 sentence exchange between BJ and Desthshead, very 80s action movie style.

Will start another playthrough tonight.

I bought it.  Now I just wish I could play it.  It kept crashing on my One at random points.  A bit annoyed at the moment.

Surprising considering it runs on my Core 2 Duo E6400, GTX 460 v2 (332.21 driver) , 8 GB DDR2.  Despite what the minimum requirements say  :D

I have to conduct a few points more,

Reloading a level after death takes longer than almost instant, around 5 seconds actually.

Meaning, on some check points at Uber difficulty, you will spend more time looking at the loading screen than playing.

I have a feeling the engine is doing something really bad here, like actually reloading everything.

I have 55 hours on Steam for this game. I probably played less than 20.

Why? Game does not quit. Executable stays in memory after I Alt-F4.

      Bethesda's Pete Hines: I'm sorry about Starfield Xbox exclusivity, but it is what it is
      by Usama Jawad

      At E3 last week, we finally got official confirmation that Bethesda's highly-anticipated RPG Starfield is coming next year, but will only launch on PC, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox cloud play systems, which essentially means that last-gen consoles and PlayStation will be left out. Although this announcement was somewhat expected given Microsoft's acquisition of ZeniMax Media last year, it obviously rubbed some PlayStation players the wrong way. Bethesda's SVP Pete Hines has now issued an apology on the matter, while emphasizing that it is what it is.



      In an interview with GameSpot, the executive went on to say that:

      All said and done, it's pretty much clear that Bethesda has no plans to bring Starfield to PlayStation for now. Although it is important to understand that plans change all the time.

      Starfield currently has a release date of November 11, 2022. The space adventure is being developed on Creation Engine 2, and in the in-engine trailer released a few days ago, we saw a spaceship parked on an unknown planet before a pressurized suit wearing individual - probably our protagonist - prepares to take off. Not much else is known about the game yet, but we'll likely find out more with the progression of time.

      Now that we're getting Windows 11 and things are starting to change up more than the past few years with Windows 10, I un-pinned the old Windows 10 thread and started this one.
       
      With the leaked build and the event coming on the 24th things are getting interesting once more.

      Grand Theft Auto Online is shutting down on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this year
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Later this year, the wildly popular online portion of Grand Theft Auto V is leaving behind the original platforms it released on two console generations ago. Rockstar Games today announced the shutdown of GTA Online on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as well as the platforms' Rockstar Games Social Club stat tracking capabilities.

      While the single-player portion will remain untouched, GTA Online will become inaccessible on the two platforms starting on December 16. Before that, Rockstar will halt microtransaction purchases (Shark Cards) from September 16.

      Rockstar stopped updating Grand Theft Auto V on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 way back in 2015, and the Online content has remained the same since then. Currently, the studio supports the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 versions of the game with new content, and is also working on new "expanded and enhanced versions" for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5.

      Another piece of bad news for players on old platforms is that there won't be any way to transfer their in-game characters and progress to a newer device, or get refunds on Shark Card purchases. The studio did not say how many active players will this shutdown impact.

      Moreover, with Social Club online services going away on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, all online features of L.A. Noire and Max Payne 3 — website stat tracking, online multiplayer, and leaderboards — on the platforms will also cease to function from September 16. Once again, the single-player campaigns will remain intact.

      Xbox June update has text-to-speech party chat accessibility options and more
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      The June update for Xbox has landed heralding new features and changes to both Microsoft's game consoles and Xbox app on mobile platforms.

      Today's release brings speech-to-text and text-to-speech transcription support for party chat on Xbox consoles. With speech-to-text, anything spoken while in a party can now be converted to text which appears as an adjustable overlay on top of gameplay, while text-to-speech has text chat being read aloud by a synthetic voice (with multiple voices available) for others in the party.

      Both functions can be found in Settings > Ease of Access > Game and Chat transcription page. Options > Configure Ease of Access settings can also be used to access it from inside of a party chat.

      Elsewhere, the guide has been updated to allow customizing the order of custom game groups. In the My games & apps screen now exists a 'Move groups' button alongside the 'Create a new group' button for easy sorting.

      Cross-network play requests — involving games like Minecraft that can be played with Windows 10 and Switch players — made by Xbox child accounts in a family group can now be handled by parents or guardians via the Xbox Family Settings mobile app or from an Xbox console. Speaking of mobile, Microsoft is also rolling out improvements to the Android and iOS Xbox apps that will let users see official social posts from games, while offering like, share, and commenting capabilities.

      As for known issues in this update, not much has changed since last month except a single new problem that has surfaced. Microsoft says it has received reports regarding controllers not responding when returning to a game using Quick Resume and suggests restarting the game to resolve it. The update is available now, and users can trigger it to happen right away or wait until it completes automatically.
