Far Cry 5 is sitting at 81% on metacritic. I’ve played every Far Cry game since 3 and I usually like these games, so I will probably play it when it goes on sale. Also, I need a break from the Far Cry formula after Horizon Laughing

ign’s top 100 games of all time:
http://www.ign.com/lists/top-100-games

As usual, it is littered with SNES games in the top spots, whereas Grim Fandango sits at 80 and Doom, one of the most influential games of all time sits at 19.

When it started with ____ like pokemon at 100, you know top spots will be reserved for Nintendo games and i was right

Cliff Bleszinski’s studio still reeling from the, “Nobody cared about Lawmakers” flop seems to be rushing out a Battle Royale type game.

In X-treme early access and very 80’s, Radical Heights doesn’t look that much better than lawmakers to be honest. Also smacks of desperatly trying to cling onto the hot genre of the day.

And you can’t preorder it on Amazon UK (or Detroit or Spiderman) there seems to be an issue with Sony and Amazon Frown

Looking forward to God of War though.

God of War is number one in UK charts and selling well so far.

Also director of the game Cory Barlog’s reaction to the high metacritic score is priceless Smile

Rumours of a reveal on Monday 14th.

I remember liking the first one and it’s weird mega-textures.

I was impressed with the game. The shooting is massively enjoyable, with a wide array of weapons that have multiple ammo types meaning that customising the way you like to play is a lot of fun. Personally I liked to go with the Shotgun for mutants as they get close pretty fast, the Authority rifle for all other types of enemies and the wingstick as the alternate fire.

The Wingstick is my favourite toy in the game. It’s a glave type throwing device (Think the movie Krull) that spins at an enemy, bouncing off surfaces and decapitating them as they run towards you. It never gets old and just gets better with the advanced model you get later in the game.

While the story is functional and the atmosphere in the game is great. It seriously loses it towards the end making me think that the game was rushed. It has a disappointing last few missions and it felt very rushed. The expected final boss battle never materialised and the game just ended leaving you thinking WTF happened next.

It took me about 12:30 hrs to complete the game and I had a hell of a lot of fun.

That Glaive was ace and nearly as much fun as the Axe in the recent God of War.
