Crackdown's increasingly become a time and place thing. I loved playing through it but it was definitely of a time when the open-world wasn't so figured out and formulaic. They missed a trick in this one by not having the agility orbs on the high ground. That's how you incentivise the hook the first game had.

Meh. I'll not begrudge more people be given the chance to play Dark Souls. I'm curious to see how the whole game translates to the console. This looks closer to the PS3/360 versions but with a more consistent frame rate and quicker load times.

Took a while but I'm into it. The bosses feel like marathon efforts, though. I'm not a fan death by a thousand cuts. I do like the exploration, though.

Is that Hamburgler Cesaro in disguise?

It's from back when McDonalds tried and failed to make the Hamburgler fuckable.

I hate when they do that. Mr. Muscle used to be a nerd. Now he's a ripped CG man. Captain Birdseye used to be an salty old man who lured children on to his boat. Now he's a ripped man who lures children on to his boat.

This doesn't solve the image problem Findus was having.

11 missions in and it really lacks .... everywhere. I'm still compelled to finish it but only because it looks like a game you can force. I'm not even sure it's a case of good ideas executed poorly. There's a lot of choices made that feel, in a player's hands, the wrong call.

I kinda liked this. Milestone's usual work is so laden with licenses and structure so this feels like a daft breath of fresh air.

@petethepanda: Yes. They do.

Also, this doesn't run so great on a base PS4. It's got a problematic framerate that worsens when you're in a pack of riders.

I still might pick this up. Thing is, the Metal Gear name will bring people to the product that otherwise would've steered clear of survival games. They need that name to sell it. Without it, there may have been a better critical reception.

The story in The Surge has it's moments.

- Climate change is real and we're fucked from overpopulation.

- CREO are trying to fix it but they've come up with two terrible options.

- You're guided by the medical AI who caused the surge.

- She caused it to stop the boardroom from passing a project to turn all (remaining) human life into robots. She's all about saving human life, y'all.

- CREO is in fuhrerbunker levels of decay and hysteria from work revolts and now the workforce is screwed because the surge messed up the chips in their heads.
