    My 2 month long Bloodborne binge is over so we jumped back on today to prepare for the coming DLC. 6v6 Iron Banner is a lot of fun. Despite not really playing for a few months i was consistently getting 20+ kills and finished top of the board quite a few times. I think i'll find i hard to go back to regular 4v4 crucible. All in all it feels like a much faster paced game. Multiple super uses in each match. More enemies so more engagements. The new heavy ammo economy works quite well, not as much ammo from the pick ups but enemies now drop their heavy if you kill them. Saladin is very trigger happy with the mercy rule now. We played maybe 7 or 8 games and 3 ended in a mercy. Before you could be quadrupling their score and Shaxx would let you keep on beating on people. Either way, i got the last 2 pieces of Hunter IB gear so if new armour drops in season 3 i'm not missing anything. We also knocked out a Nightfall. Not much to report on that side of things. I don't know if they've buffed Knights shields but they seemed to be popping them up and healing faster than i could kill them. Maybe i'm just out of practice. I've not really watched anything from the new DLC. This will be the first time since the original Destiny where i am going in nearly blind. Aside from the initial teaser trailer i don't know anything about it. Actually looking forward to playing on Tuesday for the first time in a long time!

    2018 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    So, those Yakuza games? I've never played one but 0 and 1 are pretty cheap on the PS store here in the UK at the moment. I'm tempted. £19 for 0 and £10 for the first game i think. So dumb question, should i start with the first game or play the prequel first? Does playing Yakuza Zero ruin anything that might be in the first game?

    2018 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    I got my 4th Platinum trophy with Batman: The Telltail Series on PS4. OK, so that's not as impressive as 106 platinums, and it's a tell tail game so it basically just gives it away. But it still counts damn it! It's actually the first Telltail game I've played despite owning a bunch thanks to PS+/GWG/Humble Bundles. I've played other 'walking sims' before, Life is Strange is one of my favourite games on the PS4, but there wasn't a whole lot of walking in Batman. Are other Telltail games as light on the walking as Batman? It was pretty much just watching an 8 hour Batman movie with the occasional quick time event. Not that i'm complaining, the platinum trophy told me i'm Batman, so i'm Batman now! It had some interesting takes on characters and backgrounds. I did enjoy it though, i'm tempted to pick up season 2 the next time it goes on sale which will probably guarantee it going free the next month. I think Telltail and Assassins Creed are in competition to see who can give away the most games in their franchises. I also played through Ratchet and Clank last week since it was free on PS+ last month. I'd never played any of the original games but it was a lot of fun and either i suck at it or there is a massive difficulty jump for the final boss because i struggled with that more than i'd like to admit. Who would have though out of the 2 PS+ titles in march that i'd have more trouble beating a Ratchet and Clank boss than Bloodborne. Granted I've played Bloodborne to the point where i can just casually knock out a run now. I love that game. Speaking of Bloodborne, i played through pretty much the entire game last month again in co-op form with a friend of mine. I always find watching other people play Dark Souls/Bloodborne games interesting because everyone seems to struggle with different things and has their own approach. I played a lot of games over the past month, and barley touched Destiny, this is unusual for me.

    Yeah i'm pretty much in the same boat. I played 2 weeks worth of the new, timeless, Nightfall a couple of patches ago and that's pretty much it. Might try and get in on those last 2 Iron Banners just to finish off a set of gear for the Hunter but once i hit max light on all 3 characters i kind of lost interest. Even though I've not done the raid this time around that carrot on the end of a stick just doesn't seem to be there for Destiny 2. I cant find a reason to keep logging in each week like a could for the original Destiny. I'll be back for the second expansion in May since i already brought it but the game will need a massive overhaul for whatever the Year 5 content is and not just these small improvements they keep dropping.

    I've been doing another Bloddborne playthrough with a friend of mine since it's free on PS+ this month so I've not tried out the latest patch yet, i didn't even realise last week was Faction Rally week. I'll have to get some Nightfalls in for the new strike specific loot though. I'm interested in the new 6v6 Iron Banner when it's in rotation too. I see they mentioned that that was the last Faction Rally of season 2, does anyone know if they've commented on how many Iron Banners are left too? I'm guessing it will be new loot for when season 3 hits.
  7. I know in the UK they sometimes offer you a deal. It's not a guaranteed thing though. I'm not sure what triggers it or if they just select people at random to receive the offer. I think it's normally around £30 for a year, and sometimes they do a one month offer for £1. Again, i don't know if this offer is available in the US but you can currently get 6 months for £6 from Microsoft if your account has expired in the UK: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/store/p/xbox-live-gold/cfq7ttc0k5dj/000D?tduid=(9fd439836256913dce2bdf91292420d8)(266696)(1018132)(1455486652)() Might be worth looking into.
  8. 2 good PS+ months in a row where I've owned the main game. But both Bloodborne and Mad Max were great games so i can't complain. I'm pretty sure Microsoft are dedicated at this point to giving away every Assassins Creed game ever made. I'll take it.

    The scoring is like the old Challenge of Elders, without Variks awesome voice. But as far as I can tell you don't loose out on any gear for not getting a high score. The score is just tied to emblems and the aura. The problem with the timed Nightfall was if you took too long it kicked you back to orbit and you got nothing. Now you can take as long as you like and still get you're rewards. The scoring is just an added challenge. My only problem with the new format is they got rid of modifiers. Modifiers were what made it a Nightfall. Now it's just a harder strike with better rewards.

    Curious, what don't you like about the scored version? Aside from the lack of modifiers, for me it's better in every way to the timed version. Knocked out a spot of Iron Banner last night. I'm playing on my Warlock but i'm cashing in and collecting the gear on my Hunter this time. I've got the cape, boots and chest so far along with the new grenade launcher.

    Yeah the next expansion will probably be out by the time I've got 3 sets of gear on 3 characters for 3 sub classes. The Warlock is the only character so far to have 2 full 335 sets of armour. He's rocking Iron Banner and representing Dead orbit both at max light. I've only just hit max on the Titan and i still only have enough 335 gear on the Hunter for one complete set.
  12. Not to keep banging on about how awesome Bloodborne is (it's awesome), you may find it easier or a lot harder than Nioh depending on what problems you had with it. Nioh is faster paced than Dark Souls but slower than Bloodborne and Bloodborne rewards aggressive play where as you have to be more defensive in Nioh. Bloodborne is also a lot more unforgiving at the start of the game though. I think i probably died more times in the starting area than i did the rest of the game. I would definitely recommend trying it out though and if you don't like it, well, it was free so no loss.

    Good to know I'm not the only person that has set armour with the correct flavour mods for each sub class.

    I don't want to ruin your day but infusion doesn't work like it did in D1 now. You can't use one classes gear to infuse another. Making that max light grind all the harder. Once you hit max light it is easier to bring the rest of your gear up to match though, I've had a bunch of blue engrams drop at 330. Something I noticed as well when we ran the new style Nightfall. There's no modifiers on the normal version anymore. It's one step forward two steps back with Bungie. It's great that they got rid of the timer, I don't think anyone enjoyed that, but a Nightfall without modifiers is just a slightly harder strike.
  15. Holy crap, that might be the best PS+ month they've ever had. I'm not even mad that i already own Bloodborne since it's my favourite game of this generation and i can finally stop trying to convince my friends to buy it since its free. I'm happy with Ratchet & Clank and while Might No. 9 got somewhat torn apart I've always wanted to try it and free is the right price to pay.
