You all know I'm a huge AC Odessy fan. Well they just announced the next one: Valhalla


Apparently set in a few European countries and you can use landing parties to raid villages.

I personally thought AC Odessy was the bomb bar some shitty grinding elements and a good story but with weak character quests. If they improve those two flaws this game could be seriously great.

It's an amazing game, with a a great story and amazing level design plus its set on earth which is a bonus.

And running through the vulkan API it's sublime and gorgeous!!!

But the platforming is horrendous and ruins what is otherwise a 9/10 game. Double jumping in mid air? Swinging from beams? Wall grappling?

It just ruins it for me and I thought this was big step up from Doom 2016. They were so close....so close to making a game near as fresh as the first when it landed.
I basically agree on the platforming. There are some negatives but they are overwhelmingly countered by all of the positives imo.

Yup yup. All true. As much as those aspects are annoying they don't take away from an otherwise great game.

I'm trying to think where they go from here. Maybe with the next one they can remove the platforming and ramp up the Rog elements. Eg give you more design paths for your champion.

I'd also like to see customized armour sets with bonuses. Story wise hmm....I don't know.....where do you go after earth!!!

I wouldn't mind if they did a medieval one. You know kinda made doom guy like ash Williams from army of darkness saving the world back in the past mixing ranged with melee weapons.

Heck they could even do a wolfenstein cross over have the Nazis summon demons and doom guy clean up the mess

They've definitely breathed fresh air into the franchise they just gotta keep momentum

Just bought TW WH 2. £11.

Actually quite a good game. It's got a great little tutorial at the start, not long winded, introductory, but straight into the game type which is good.

Maybe I didn't understand it before but it seems......less complex than the last one I tried which was the British colonial tw. I like that.

Battle system seems spot on. High points, low points, guard, moral, chase, seige, treelines.

My only gripe is the races are bland. Elves. Skaven. Dark elf. Lizard men.

Started playing TW shogun2 yesterday.
I suck so far, finding it really aukward to move the units around and the camera when stuff is happening.
Enjoyi the general gameplay
Feels like its about 10fps on my laptop though

London/Wales
so TLOU 2 is heading our way June.

Please dont buy John Wick Hex its shite. I am so dissapointed. I wanted it to be like Max Payne.

Also been playing Jumani what a pile of turd.

I have downloaded Seb Loeb rally quite good.

COD Advannced Warefare the zombies dlc was on offer so snapped it up. Got to level 35 Outbreak because I am a beast. The dog needed a piss so level 40 will have to do another time.

MW 2 remastered thought would love but something missing.

For any Codemasters Dirt fans Dirt 5 is in the works. Hope they do more point to point or rallycross.

So want TOCA to come back as well that was ace back in the day.

Finally picked up Gran Turismo 6 off a m8. I pleyed the shit out of 5 so high hopes.
