@themcnoisy That'd probably require a good deal of gas in order to cross the atlantic in both directions.

@themcnoisy woah! You have to pay extra for cities to be illuminated at night on Flight Similator... that doesn't sound consumer friendly 🤔...

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker (3DS). The Devil Survivor spin-off games have a weird mix of Shin Megami battling and demons, strategic fighting (including a Fire Emblem style grid based combat), and visual novel style story telling. It's an odd mix, but it works. I'm enjoying it so far, but I think the first game had much better story telling and characters.

Ace Attorney Investigations 2. This game unfortunately never released outside of Japan, but the fan translations are excellent. I'm in the middle of case 2 now, and having a blast with it.

@colonelkilgore Sorry man I wrote that slightly wrong. In flight simulator you can fly the whole world. It uses a top down view from live satellite images to make the world. You have a full day and night cycle and stuff.

The downside is it looks weird close up, some areas look great like my local area strangely as I'm on the end of a built up area before a load of greenery and golf courses. Cities look weird as the building are the wrong height and wrong types of building etc which is understandable as the whole world is simulated from satellite images.

As an example the Merseyside river front is replaced by High rise towers. So with that in mind cities aren't correctly positioned vertically. So the lighting is off. In the game you have 40 fully accurate airports,with over 37000 altogether. Around 30 relatively accurate tours, one of which is London with the Tower of London and Houses of parliament. Almost everything else is from the satellite imagery.

You can purchase packs, such as planes, cities, night lighting, world artifacts and such from the store. The prices are staggering honestly for what you get. If you could grab say a plane, better version of say Norwich and some artifacts for a fiver I could be interested. But when it's £10 for a city lighting pack you lose interest quickly.

If non-ps4 we're talking about exclusives, halo infinite on the xb. Dread on switch. If not exclusives, control ultimate on xb with some max Payne 3, dying light on switch.

@themcnoisy no problem buddy, I was just having a giggle more than anything, what with Microsoft’s almost saintly image as a friend to the consumer and so on. I appreciate the in depth explanation of Flight Simulator though 👍

I'll go plant a tree.

We might even need one of those mid-air refuelling planes, like in Air Force One. Let's just hope the an absence of Gary Oldman keeps it from exploding in our faces!

Started playing Renegade Ops on Xbox 360 today. I remember playing it for a while over 10 years ago (!) but I never finished it. Decided to pick it up again today, started a new save file and this game is bloody amazing! It's like Just Cause but as a fast-paced twin-stick shooter and it's soooooo much fun! I can't believe how overlooked this game is, especially since it was actually made by Avalanche Studios, the Just Cause developer. It also made me remember the good old Xbox Live Arcade (and PSN) days of getting these smaller digital titles that were absolutely outstanding. I personally loved all the twin-stick shooters, which we barely get any of these days. And when I mean twin-stick shooters, I mean ones with an arcade design where the goal is to just get through levels, shoot everything in sight and get high scores, i.e. simple pick up and play games. Because that's what Renegade Ops pretty much is, but it also has its own quirks and since it was made by the Just Cause developer, you're going to see a lot of destructible environments and explosions and it's just pure fun. I highly recommend playing this game, it's just so good!

Started Fable Anniversary for the Xbox 360 the other day (via backwards compatibility), as I never played the first one and thought I would give it a playthrough before replaying Fable II. And it's effed, buggy and makes me want to throw it in the bin. The main issue is the save system, as autosaves are very infrequent, and you can't properly manually save. That's okay, there's Quick Resume, the naive Sam of Thursday thought as he turned the Xbox off for the evening. But no, Quick Resume in fact decided not to work at all, despite the game being compatible. So, I ended up redoing a load of stuff. Turned it off yesterday after I -did- get an autosave (the icon flashed and everything, and it's on the save menu), only to turn it on today and discover that not only did Quick Resume still fail, the game had not actually autosaved everything I'd done, reverting me quite far back. Worse still, the bloody thing has hard locked in a game-breaking bug preventing me from continuing. Early on there's a quest at the Heroes' Guild where you have to train by beating up a straw dummy, and then go off and kill some beetles just minding their own business in the woods, before there's a time jump. Now the straw dummy isn't there, so I can't progress. Just ugh. What a cheaply made, ugly and nasty port. And don't get me started on the jittery camera that gave me motion sickness.

@mookysam I started playing Fable Anniversary last month actually and I definitely recognise the issue of not knowing when the game will save. I haven't encountered any bugs, but I've still not had a good time with the game because it just hasn't aged that well at all. Combat is so clunky and the story is so uninteresting. I've had a hard time getting back into it, especially since I've been playing other RPGs that are more compelling.

I've heard though that Fable 2 and 3 are better than the first game, but I still want to play through the first one before I get around to those games. It's just too bad that it's not that good, at least in the beginning.

@LtSarge I haven't played Fable 2 or 3 in years, so can't say how well they hold up today, but 2 was one of my favourite games on the 360. I really loved it. it's thoroughly charming and the music is gorgeous. It was also a big deal for me because it was the first game I played that allowed same-sex romance. It's a lot more open than the first game, with larger areas, more features, more detailed gameplay, and more player choice.
Fable 3 was a bit controversial at the time because only 2/3 the game is a traditional Fable RPG, but I still enjoyed it a lot.

Something about Fable Anniversary feels off, and it's clearly made on a shoestring budget. I do like that the backwards compatibility cleans up the image nicely thanks to the increased resolution, inbuilt texture filtering, and it also benefits from FPS boost.

I am currently playing Paper Mario: The Origami King on Switch. It’s really good so far. I wasn’t sure if I was going to enjoy the battle system, but so far I am. The game makes me laugh too.

@Bentleyma I loved The Origami King. So many people sleep on it because it's not an RPG, but it also improves on the older games in a variety of ways. And the game's story is shockingly emotional. There are a few things holding it back, but, IMO, it's a superb title nonetheless.

Playing Dangaronpa on my iPad, quite fun as always.

The PSVR is the best VR system on the market today.

@Ralizah I do miss the RPG elements, but I’m not going to shoot down a game because it’s not something it’s not trying to be. The most important thing is they’ve kept the humour and the gameplay is fun… oh and it looks fantastic too.

@Bentleyma Despite not being much of a Mario fan, I adored The Origami King, and reckoned it was one of the most wholesome, charming and yet also surprising games I'd ever played. Funny as heck, beautiful to look at, and I didn't even mind screwing up certain battles. Really glad you're enjoying it!

Think I’m near the end of Arkham Origins. Fought Bane and ‘locked up’ Joker because that will totally last long. Troy Baker just sounds wrong. Like a kinda rubbish impersonation of Mark Hamill. Which is a shame, because some of the comics accurate scenes of The Joker’s past were brilliant, if only they were done with Hamill instead. Still enjoying the game though, really liked the more linear hotel section. The big electric glove things are a good addition too.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

RogerRoger

@nessisonett That whole section certainly feels like an ending, doesn't it? And I completely agree with you regarding the lack of Mark Hamill. I think Arkham Origins delivers the best representation of the Joker's character out of the entire series, so it's borderline criminal that he's lacking his best voice.

The problem with getting a Switch with a lot of games is that I’m finding it hard to stick to one game at a time! I just started Bravely Default II. It’s nice to be playing an old school JRPG. I like the general look of the game, but the characters look a bit off.

Other than that I can’t really (Bravely De)fault it.
