@RogerRoger what's wrong with the PS3 version?

when it comes to TV, Films & Games i don't think we should be editing history, to ignore it and paint it as better than it was is wrong otherwise we wont be able to learn from the mistakes they made

@FullbringIchigo Loading screens longer than Sonic '06, frequent graphical glitches, characters and buildings who only appear after two or three seconds of looking in their general direction (even during cutscenes), tons of screen tearing in busy environments, low resolution and lighting that gives everything a fuzzy halo (particularly during the Licence to Kill mission), missing scenery objects, clipping, enemy ragdoll physics going haywire, a few audio bugs... I think that's everything.

But then I also play 007 Racing, so none of the above is new.

@RogerRoger wow that sounds really bad, i wonder if the 360 version had any of those issues?

i might check as i also have it on there but i never played it (it was included in a box of games i brought off a mate)

@FullbringIchigo At the very least, you'll add to your gamerscore. I quite enjoyed the non-multiplayer trophies, some were quite fun to track down.

@RogerRoger well i don't really care about Gamerscore/Trophy Level honestly although they do let you keep track of what you have done in a game which is good

@FullbringIchigo Yeah, as long as I keep my stats even-numbered, I don't really mind. But they do sometimes offer fun things to search for in replays, and 007 Legends had a couple which had me hunting for hidden bits I liked. Like a random crocodile!

@RogerRoger With regards to loading times, nothing will ever beat the unpatched version of XCOM2. I think I once timed it as over 3 minutes to load the base after completing a mission.

@Thrillho That's quite special.

At least the loading times in Sonic '06 are broken up, albeit briefly. The optional side quests in the hubs are my favourite. You start talking to the person who needs help, then there's a 30-second loading screen. Then you see them again (in exactly the same position) and they repeat their request, and then there's another loading screen. Then you get to do the quest and, once finished, there's a loading screen.

You then see the quest-giver a third time, and they briefly say "thanks" and give you your results. You must then endure a fourth loading screen before being allowed to continue play.

Even when you haven't moved an inch.

What's even worse is that some of the quests come in parts, or have multiple questions to answer. When you're on the fifth question (with two loading screens for each) and you make a mistake, you have to start all over. I think the most loading screens I counted were fourteen, for a perfect run of one side quest.

@Thrillho Bloodborne before the patch was a killer with the loading screens. Not as long as X Com bit they were probably more frequent.

McCroskey: Johnny, what can you make of this? [hands Johnny a map]
Johnny: This? Well, I can make a hat; I can make a brooch; I can make a pterodactyl!

@RogerRoger @JohnnyShoulder In true British style, I once made a cup of tea while waiting for the game to load and it was still going when I got back.

And I like my tea WELL brewed too.

RogerRoger

@Thrillho Ah, tea. Our answer to any problem.

@RogerRoger @Thrillho @JohnnyShoulder
The American equivalent to British tea — Pouring yourself a Coke, eating some Doritos, and then going to the bathroom. It may sound Neanderthal, but it passes the time. Sometimes we even have some Poptarts, apple pie, barbecue ribs, and watch some fireworks while we take our John Deere tractor for a spin if our pick-up truck is in the shop. Usually if the game’s not done loading by then, I’ll watch some reality TV before I go to the gym to work out with my personal trainer while I try to decide between getting a smoothie or going to McDonalds.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

@Th3solution I say, steady on, old chap. My monocle fell out with incredulity at the amount of stereotypes you presented in that paragraph, don'tcha know!

Now, if you'll excuse me, my bowler hat needs re-lining. Pip-pip, tally-ho, what!

Hobnobs are the gaming biscuit of choice for me. The chocolate ones are even better, but they make the controller greasy, so they're a no-go sadly.

Can I put a shout-out for fig rolls? I'll see myself out......

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.
