Hey Duders!

I'm doing some research on completion stats for games and stumbled upon this thread from a few years back http://www.giantbomb.com/forums/general-discussion-30/game-completion-statistics-484783/

I know GB doesn't track achievements any more (I don't think anyway?) but is there any way of getting a more up to date version of this stat please? I can't find where on here this guy got it from, and I'm sure in the 3 years of passing things like Super Meat Boy and Dark Souls will be VERY high on the list these days as titles people didn't finish!

Cheers!!

From what I can gather (and I could be WAAAY off, but that's where you guys will come in!), Red is a singer in this futuristic city of Cloudbank where technology has become so advanced we've essentially reached a singularity of sorts; allowing for things like the day and night skies to be altered by flicking a computer switch.

The Camerata are a group of people who yearn for more control, seeking to knock back artistry, free-thinking and creativity for the sake of establishing order, to which they create the all-controlling Transistor to do so.

Then one night, there's a ruckus at one of Red's gigs as she's been marked for assassination by the Camerata, but escapes, getting her hands on the Transistor and taking the fight back to them - rebuilding the digitally-enveloped city along the way.

Sorry if that's way off (it's hard to know anything for sure when the writing is so deliberately cryptic!) and I've just jumped back into NG+ now to find out more from some more powers, but please if the people who have played/figured out the most could chip in and help with clarifying the events of the game and the motivations of the characters, I think it would be super helpful to everyone!

Cheers! :D

Haha it must just be then! Tell ya what I'd love though would be for Yakuza 5 to get a localised release too though!! :D

There's just nothing on the horizon in terms of really big next-gen(current-gen?)-only titles, save for Assassin's Creed Unity and Arkham Knight, and there doesn't seem to be a whole lot worth getting stuck into at the minute either.

I think part of the reason Dark Souls had such a huge resurgence was because of the collective need to find something else to play, and it seemed Dark Souls was on the communal backburner for everyone.

Now that that's done though, and Dark Souls II as well, what is there to talk about and dissect? We had this crazy year last year for boundary-pushers like Gone Home, Last of Us and Paper's Please, hell even The Novelist did its best, but where are all the big discussions now?

I don't know, for a living I write for an entertainment site, and each day we're writing increasingly nostalgic pieces to maintain our numbers because it just doesn't feel like there's a whole lot worth talking about right now.

What do you guys think?

With no lock-on and no health bar, you end up seeing most fights through that washed out black and white filter as you struggle to know how the hell to take on more than about 2 guys, whilst the awkward floaty jumping controls make you stick to random outcrops and lampposts anyway!

Do you guys find yourselves hanging back to take on wider groups of dudes? So far I'm hating every combat showdown, as the melee attacks are hella slow, and should you take the time to try and aim you'll just get ventilated by gunfire.

Help please!

I'm currently fighting the Giant Lord and just punched the fuck out of my leg, because, y'know, gamer rage!! :D How about the rest of you guys?

Finally had all the animation come to a stop and a big 'Your hard drive or disc is corrupted' message pop up! Turns out there was a lovely great big thumb print on the bottom of the disc, even though I bought it new!!

Thanks for the help guys, ever since cleaning the disc everything's been great!! :D

Hmm I've installed it and done all updates but there's still a constant clicking noise that sounds like the console engaging the drive before giving up, before doing it over and over again!

Ever since I put it in I've got this weird loop of it engaging the disc drive, like a 'speed-up' kinda noise, followed by one clicking sound, maybe like the laser moving or something? I just have that over and over again, and it's incredibly annoying!

The game is running totally fine, but i'd like to know what this noise is! Do you guys think it could be because it's trying to update the game's files in the background? Infamous added itself to the Download queue after I booted it up!

Cheers!!
