Ffs lads, if you've not played Portal 1 it's 97¢ at the moment.
Butbreally you should go all out and get Velest for €4.99 - it's definitely one of the greatest videogames ever made. Fantastic soundtrack too...
Yeah at the time it was literally leagues ahead of what other irish bands of the same level were doing. Weren't some of the band memebers part of some meeeja collective or other? Or literally worked in the video/cgi industry?
Ha! holy shit, another one I'd completely forgotten about. If I remember correctly the whole deal with the music video was that they didn't know what was going to happen, so the director just had a lot of mad shit happen around them and filmed their reaction.
I remember this being released very much in the "who will be the next U2" phase of the Irish music industry and thinking this could be a song that could do it for them. With this song, one of the few Irish Bands getting mainstream radio play at the time.
I'm not really a swords and dragons guy myself either, but the gameplay transcends the genre. I guess some of those swords and dragons tropes sneak in because of the central Guard/Attack/Parry combat system. If anything the boss fight monsters in these Fromsoft games are usually more about...
My wife loved this game. Started playing the sequel Horizon: Forbidden West just about 2 weeks ago. Elden Ring came out last Thursday and that's all she's played since, Horizon back in the box, possibly heading for CEX.
Imagine a gigantic sprawling gaming world full of infinite nooks and crannies where various creatures / quests lie. You're riding along minding your own business when this happens.
But you can't just mash "shoot" at the dragon. You have to learn it's behaviour. Learn it's tells of the attacks...
Not sure I agree with this at all. There's very few cuts, if any, in video games, and you can clearly see what your character is doing at all times. It's pretty mission critical for a player not to be confused with what's going on on the screen. Which kind of game were you thinking of in particular?
