    Huh? Hitman 3 is full price, and Miles is less than that.

    Tell that to Sony please. Here's how it's priced in my region (launch day prices):
    Hitman 3 (PC) - 1599 Rub ($22)
    Hitman 3 (PS5) - 4199 Rub ($58)
    Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales standard edition (PS5) - 4299 Rub ($60)



  • Weirdly just couldn't get into miles I beat it but I literally sat on the last mission for months before quickly beating it before trading it in for Re8.

    Maybe its just from comparison to the movie or that I never got all that attached to miles and his journey with his friends.

    @ffff0 That is weird.

  • Personally, I think Miles has the same issue as Resident Evil 3. It’s very short considering the price, and there’s not a lot of content to play. I got the platinum extremely quickly.

    I love the way they’ve magically transformed the city in key places, like Harlem other places.

    I also love the effort made to make Miles feel separate to Peter. From the animations to the character to the costumes.

    My biggest criticism is that this game feels like it’s not necessarily trying to tell a good story. The purpose of the game feels like it exists purely to get Miles to a certain point ready for the eventual Spiderman 2.

    It doesn’t make it bad by itself, but I can’t help but think this game would have been more at home as the Act 1 of the true sequel.



  • @el-shmiablo Did you know that in my region digital versions of PlayStation and Switch games cost about $10 more than physical versions? Welcome to Russia, I guess.

    @ffff0 Wow that is wild. I don't even pay tax on digital purchases.
    Except on the Nintendo store for some reason.



  • @el-shmiablo

    How does Sony get away with that? I mean, I’m not complaining. I miss when Steam didn’t have tax either. But they’ll probably need to charge taxes soon right?

    Miles came with my PS5 along with Spider-Man Remastered. So I played it in order starting with the original game. I liked the original game but wasn’t in love with it.

    Miles is actually a better game imo but I was a bit burnt out on Spider-Man and quit after 4ish hours. So I’ll finish it eventually but I just wasn’t feeling it at the time.

    Visuals in both Miles and SM:R are about the same which is a testament to how great the remaster is. I couldn’t imagine playing this game in less than 60fps. Just so smooth.

    Not much different in Aus,

    Most physical stores have ps5 games for 100-110aud (80-85usd tax included) but digital is 125(95usd)last gen the difference was usually more at 70-80 physical vs 99 digital.

    Pretty sure my physical ps5 has already payed itself off.

    Kinda annoying usd the Aus dollar is doing quite well compared to America right now so we're paying out the arsequite a bit.



  • Resident Evil 3 Remake

    Still didn't finish it, that's is one of the reasons why I put it in HMs. But I love these remakes modernisation of very old games. If Capcom just release every RE game ever in this engine with this mechanics, I'm more than happy with the whole thing. Recently I finished RE2 remake again and RE7 for the first time. Before I meet the vampire mommy in RE8 I want to finish RE3 remake hopefully. Also RE4 remake is my true wish from Capcom E3 show.

    Spider-Man: Miles Morales

    Good side game for the players who liked original game. New mechanics are fun, Miles is more likeable than og game(still not as much as movie version), story has its moments(especially ending) and good pacing most of the time, snowy setting is great(I just love snow in games), set pieces are awesome(even though they are few).

    I have two gripes about it: Before the final mission 1-2 more missions would benefit the story very effectively. Another thing is

    Prowler

    is so inferior in this comparing the movie.

    Side missions gave me the impression that they tried to improve them, there were more story based side missions but probably those attempts will be much better in the proper sequel.

    @ffff0

    Did you %100 the whole game in 8 hours!? How?

    EZA Review



  • Never get the appeal of this game. If I have to play something similar The Sims always attracted me more.



  • This is a great game that went on to become a good game through lackluster updates. It's Animal Crossing, so naturally I love it, but I'm very disappointed with the support it has received. It's still missing series staples like gyroids or Brewster, which were never promised but feel sorely missed in a game that was intentionally shipped unfinished with the promise of later updates. This is not an inherently bad system, and there have been some cool updates, but generally they have proven to be little more than seasonal events, making it so that the base game still feels a little empty. It's still a good game, but in my opinion it doesn't have the depth of New Leaf, making it feel like a bit of a step down.



  • I'm not a fan of the Animal Crossing games, I've always found it to be extremely boring and tedious. This series just isn't for me, but I'm happy for the fans who finally got the game they wanted. And I respect what AC New Horizons has meant for so many people during the pandemic. So shout out to this game for making peoples lives better!



  • New Horizons doesn't do much that New Leaf didn't already do but the reason why it got a HM from me is for one simple reason-it was the game that took us away from the misery and despair of the real world and allowed us to vacation away in its virtual paradise-which is one of the most beautiful and impactful things any videogame has ever done.



  • Games that are perpetual in any sense are not for me in any way, though New Horizons will always be neat to me, not for the game, but the community making the fan-art with the crossover of what I'm hoping will make the countdown. Such jolly vibes. Stoked for those who got so much out of it, but Animal Crossing is a series I'll always stay far away from.



  • Oh wow, I thought this one will be in top 5.

    I'm a tiny bit curious if this game allows me to be mean bastard and kick every NPC out of my island, but I'm not buying it just to test that.



  • Just started this somewhat recently. I haven't played it as much as I wanted, but I enjoyed my time in it quite a bit so far. Right now I'm still trying to gather wood to build a shop. It just feels so satisfying to have this whole plot of land all to yourself (basically), and being able to do more things as you progress. I personally love picking up every bit of weed in the game, it's like cleaning my own room. Tedious, but very much worth it. Also, the music in this game is very chill and adds a lot to the already wonderful atmosphere of the game.

    I've cleared the map from all markers in 8 hours (I believe it was just 8 hours - I don't own the game anymore, so I can't double check). Usually, I'm very effective in open-world games, so my times are lower than average.



  • I had absolutely no plans to ever play this game but seeing it blow up on twitter seemed like the perfect companion for a lockdown and I wasn't wrong. Hundreds of hours of play time and I had to force myself to stop but by then I had managed to quit smoking and no doubt New Horizons was fundamental with its meditative pace.

    As I've said here when I've finished it it's not a well designed game, when it comes to quality of life is frustrating. On the other hand it has a beautiful soundtrack and the visual style is moody in all the right ways. The passage of time is super meaningful like no other game I've played, although I can't see me enjoying this without all the pandemic free time.

    One aspect that caught me by surprise was my relationship with the inhabitants of my island. I can safely say that I never felt so connected to the point that even now, months after my last time playing it, occasionally I feel bad for neglecting them and have to battle myself not to comeback. In a year we had TLoU2 this is specially significant.

    Feels weird that my goty is a game I gave a 7/10 but it feels like the right choice.



  • Animal Crossing was ALMOST the game that got me to buy a Switch. That moment in time, the early days of the pandemic and all, and then the beautiful reviews of the game came along. I was honestly suddenly ready to spend hundreds of euros the next morning as I was checking the prices and the opening time of my local stores here for the following morning. Like I was under some spell. Then I finally broke free right before going to bed that night. Mainly because of the money. ':)
