Noobtoob's Week in Gaming: 14/05/18
  • Welcome to the present. You really did go the Forza/FIFA bundle!

    Hotline Miami (PS3) - Had the urge to play my PS3 this week, and I get the feeling I may have lost a box of games when I moved to Sydney from Japan, because I can't find some games. Very annoying. I had this on the hard drive and had never bothered with it much so I played through it. Hard as fuck in some places but fun enough. The game controls like shit but that John Carpenter-ish 80's vibe synthwave soundtrack was awesome.

    Hotline Miami 2 (PS3) - After finishing 1 I jumped on PSN and bought 2, and found a game even harder than the fuck of the original. I'm not finished yet. There's a level in a military base that is destroying me.

    DOOM (Switch) - About halfway through the campaign.

    Zelda (Switch) - Doing the DLC and looking for more shrines. The trials get pretty damn challenging in this DLC.

    Dark Souls Remastered (PS4) - Network test! Started off badly but all good in the end. Looking forward to release day now.

    Dark Souls 1 (XBone) - I have the 360 version downloaded, a freebie for buying Dark Souls 3, so fired it up after the remaster network test left me wanting more. I also had heard about an inventory glitch being used by speedrunners that I wanted to check out. It requires a bit of setup but it basically allows you to get a +3 Black Knight Greatsword 10 minutes into the game, before you even fight the gargoyles. It is a weird glitch that allows you to transform items in inventory. With this, the unfixed soul dupe glitch, and apparently even the bottomless box being back, they all guarantee DS1R will be as broken as fuck day 1 as the original was at the end. Noobs and those hoping to play legit should prepare to die indeed.
  • All I ever did the dupe glitch for was Humanity for jolly co-op with my buddy :(
  • I know good advice when I see it, Dr F!

    Yeah, was a good price, although it is only a 500Gb one so that probably explains that at least a bit. Not too fussed though, I'm sure there are deals to had on external drives.
  • I think I paid around $70 for a 2TB external hdd for my Bone around a year and a half ago, and that's in rip-off land Australia, plus I wasn't really shopping for bargains at the time. I'd say you could find an even better deal if you did some searching.

    Manio, I used a lot of the glitches in later playthrus after they started becoming a problem in the community. I used bottomless box a lot so I could make twink characters to hunt the OP invader assholes picking on new low level players. For my first few playthrus the glitches were still undiscovered so things were pretty legit. Another thing I'm worried about is save editors. It's one area the Bone will have an edge because people can't access their saves but on PS4 anyone with access to an editor will be able to give themselves unlimited souls and materials right off the bat.

    Played a couple of games last night too.

    Party Hard - A bit like Hotline Miami, you are a dude being kept awake by party people next door so you have to go over to their party and kill them all without being caught. It's not as spazzy as Hotline was but still a challenge.

    Slyde - Not available on US or JP PSN apparently, but it's a literal 4 minute platinum. It's a puzzle picture game that gives you 4 minutes to solve it, and if you do solve it, even just once, you get every trophy in the game, including a platinum. And I thought My Name is Mayo was bad.

  • Depends what you want nutta, if you want a shortish puzzle game that reminds you of Portal go Turing Test, something shorter? Go for Murdered or RYSE. RPG? Lost Odyssey. Sandbox? Mad Max. Shooty bang bang? Wolfenstein. Strategy? XCOM. From that list I'd pick Lost Odyssey but it depends how you feel about a long JRPG. I'd probably say Prey after LO. Beyond Good and Evil is worth a play too just for history's sake, plus it has a sequel coming. Ditto Metro.
  • Type “nutta” on you mobile and see what it autocorrects to. Mine switched it out to butts.

    Butts, I think you should play those games in release order so you’re working your way forward.

Howdy, Stranger!
