The silenced gunshots sound very familiar to me and I can't quite put my finger on it, the closest sound is the silenced pistol from San Andreas LINK.

Some of the background noise/cues sound similar to the Strut A music from MGS2 LINK and some of the other cues sound Uncharted to me.

Sounds like Black Ops (1/2) Zombies Mode?

I with you on Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting, I just prefer the music (mainly the SNES version) and feel of this interation of SFII.

Also I really dislike the Super announcer.

@brandang26: Usually installing off line is quicker as it wont be downloading any patches first, though they patched it a while ago to ask you if you would like to download the patch first.

For The Division 2 that game had a massive 50GB Day one patch and with it being a live game and needing a internet connection to play, they just put the most basic of files on the disc and you are essentially downloading the whole game with the Day One patch.

The most important thing about stealth in games, to me, is proper conveyance to the player that what they are doing or where they are hiding is working. Does crouching behind this box or is standing in this dark corner count as 'Hidden'. Now I see you are making a horror game so you don't want to give to much information to the player for a sense of tension, but it should not be a complete guessing game of frustration.

Another thing is striking the delicate balance of punishment for being caught. You should be punished for screwing up but a player should be able to fight there way back to safety in a way that just going 'Gung-Ho' is quicker/easier but not hampered in a way that it's quicker to just hit Quick-Load.

APEX, very closely followed by Baba is You.

Looks like they are acknowledging Tales From the Borderlands so that's pretty cool. Here's hoping they also take the quality of writing and humor from that game too.

APEX Legends is definitely my BR game of choice. I was initially against the forced squad aspect (I always play Solo modes in other BR's) and as someone who doesn't like communicating with random players, being able to communicate quite effectively with out voice or text and have it work so well is amazing.

Though, if Radical Heights had kept on going it may have been that. I genuinely enjoyed it as it was Fortnite with the not-serious attitude (I'm also a big fan of the Game Show aesthetic), but with no building and better shooting.

Not heard of this until now, but I'm kinda into with the art of Yoji Shinkawa and and the style of Russia by the way of Japan filtered through anime. Looks like a low rent hybrid of MGSV and The Division oddly enough.

I'd like to play this but I'm not sure it's worth $90AUD (Steam RRP)

I have been having a blast with it. It feels like a re-tuned Crackdown 1 which is not always bad thing especialy as someone who absolutely loved the first game. I think getting it as part of Game Pass and being on PC has soften the blow.

My problems with the game so far is:

  • Occasional random stuttering
  • Tthe default mouse sensitivity is real bad, had to turn it up to near max to be acceptable.
  • Game looks washed out
  • The lock-on system with a mouse threw me for a loop, but I'm getting used to it. I wish there was an option to disable it and have it be Zoom/ADS like option.

Will definitely be a game I play while listening to podcasts, GB Video content etc.
