Update on the situation Rumors of a Red Dead Redemption 1 remaster don’t surprise me. It’s easy money, and the original is still popular, but am I the only one who hopes Rockstar will use their time more wisely? In the last eight years, they’ve only released one new game, and they’re slowing down, not speeding up.
When the original Red Dead Redemption came out, I liked it as much as the next cowboy, but I’m not looking forward to doing it all over again. The gameplay was even worse than the sequel, and although I thought the plot and protagonist were better, it was still boring and drawn out.
It’s debatable if it still qualifies as a classic. Because it’s not that old, it’s certainly not a GoldenEye 007 issue, but a large part of the initial attraction was that it was a cowboy game with a vast open world like we’d never seen before. However, now that the sequel has been out, I’m not sure there’s much interest remaining.
Maybe I’m just being pessimistic because I want Rockstar to get on with making something new, but the notion that GTA 6 won’t be released until 2025 is becoming more and more plausible. Marv
RE: GoldenEye 007, please. Toddy is very much spot on when he says GoldenEye won’t have aged well. On console, first-person shooters have progressed a long way since then, and I’d prefer have the fond memories of playing it on the N64 than spoil them by attempting to play it today.
I recall strolling into 5th Dimension on High Street Swansea, South Wales’ biggest independent gaming shop at the time, and one of the employees informed me that GoldenEye 007 was just released on the N64.
I recall being skeptical since movie tie-ins had a horrible name at the time, but 5th Dimension was the only shop in the region that would let you try it out before you bought it, and I was captivated as soon as I saw it running and played part of the first level.
GoldenEye had gotten under my skin to the point that I felt compelled to fire it out with a silenced handgun every time I went by a CCTV camera in town. Those were happy days, and maybe they should be left in the past. Mitchell PS: I’m really liking Guardians Of The Galaxy right now; it’s fantastic.
You’ve hit the target. I know GC claims they don’t have a lot of time for watching TV, but after hearing you state you’ve never watched the Daredevil program, I recommend you do so if you have the opportunity. It’s a solid candidate for finest superhero program ever filmed (at least in terms of live action). Nothing beats Batman: The Animated Series or Justice League Unlimited when it comes to fully removing the film’s flavor. Although I must confess that Daredevil is my favorite Marvel character, so I may be prejudiced!
I’ve always thought he’d be perfect for a game. He has a built-in ‘detective mode’ that could function similarly to the Arkham games, and despite his abilities, he’s still just an ordinary person behind the outfit, so he’s vulnerable and there aren’t any of the issues that come with a Superman game where the protagonist is overpowered.
A Daredevil game was in production around the same time as the film, and it looked promising, but it was shelved early on. Sparky the Yak is a yak.
Graphics are limited. I’m here for PazJohnMitch’s Daredevil game, and I think there should be a’reverse detective mode,’ where you may have a little time of’sight’ to help you gain your bearings as a player. Maybe you only receive a certain amount of total use time each level for that mode – something that standard detective modes might benefit from, to avoid diluting the experience (I’m guilty of overusing them).
Unfortunately, I doubt this masterpiece will ever be realized, as I’m sure the funding necessary to execute it well would be too expensive for anything without Fancy Dan’s conventional visuals to showcase. It’d be too difficult to persuade the ordinary player, and businesses are notorious for being risk adverse.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Surprisingly Good seems like a pleasant surprise. I’m trying to recall other games that performed much better than I, and I believe most others, expected. Immortals Fenyx Rising, for which I put in 60 hours and received the platinum award, is the most recent one for me. It was such a well-made and enjoyable game.
Guardians will have to wait a long since I have a lot on my plate right now. I’m now playing Metroid Dread and The Forgotten City, both of which are fantastic and have firmly entrenched themselves in my heart. I’d want to juggle Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 5, It Takes Two (ideal for playing with my nephew), and GTA: San Andreas Remastered in the next two months alone on Game Pass.
It hasn’t been a particularly memorable gaming year, but even without Covid, it’s been a good one. It’s simply a bad that true fans are still having problems finding a next-gen system at a reasonable price. Simundo
GC: Immortals Fenyx Rising meets the bill well.
Save your money. I wrote in last week about beginning a Game Pass trial, and I thought I’d share my findings with the community.
If you want to save your progress while playing a game using the service on a PC, you must give them full administrator access to the PC. I repeat, if you have a youngster who wants to play a game and have their progress stored, you must give them full administrator access to the PC. Even using an administrator account isn’t enough. Every time you start the game, you must manually right-click the icon.
This is complete nonsense from Microsoft. I’m no longer upset; instead, I’m astonished. Why should Microsoft’s gaming service have this requirement?

House of the Year I just experienced the scary, psychological horrors of Resident Evil Village’s House Beneviento, and it was a very unforgettable experience. I’m getting a lot of Silent Hill/Amnesia vibes here.
I don’t believe I’ve ever felt so exposed, so naked, or so disturbed while playing a Resident Evil game. I was struck by how unique this section seemed, with its slower pace, more personal, intrusive environment, and unsettling, gnawing mood.
And that… that terrible creature in the wicked residence’s lowest floor. It would make those piercing, agonizing noises. Thank you, Lord… My heart was pounding furiously.
Don’t even get me started on those porcelain monsters with doll-like eyes. I can only image how terrifying this scene would have been in virtual reality! Energized Gamer
Options for payment So, I notice that until this Wednesday, Very is offering a fantastic price on the Xbox Series S, with an RRP of £249.99. If you buy one, you’ll earn 10% cashback, and if you add the code ‘GETFESTIVE30’ to your cart, you’ll get an additional £30 off!
In other words, the console alone will set you back only £195. You must choose the Buy Now Pay Later option for a period of 12 months, however if you pay the console in full right soon after placing your order, there will be no interest charged. The second interest-free alternative is to pay it off within the first 12 months of their purchase now, pay later arrangement, and then you’re good to go! JAH

K (Special) So, I was looking at Steam’s hardware survey, and it got me wondering about the current age of gaming, especially in terms of resolution.
One of the most significant aspects of this generation was the fact that consoles could now easily handle 4K. The issue is, how many people are really interested in 4K gaming?
According to the most recent Steam poll (which, admittedly, only included PC players), 66.5 percent of respondents were utilizing 1080p resolution. However, this does not imply that 34% of gamers are utilizing 4K monitors — just 2.3 percent were using 4K displays, with 8.7% using 4K – leaving 11 percent using ‘standard’ higher resolution screens.
To be honest, the PC gaming scene is an unusual beast, with many people utilizing a variety of monitors, but current televisions have a much more uniform resolution.
I just upgraded from a 1080p monitor to a 14405120 super-ultrawide monitor, mostly for racing games. It looks fantastic, but I’m not sure how much of it is due to the enhanced brightness and HDR support, as well as the 32:9 aspect ratio, and how much is due to the 1440p resolution. Surprisingly, 2x1440p panels (which is essentially what a super-ultrawide is) are still around 1 million pixels less than a 16:9 4K monitor, implying that 4K requires a lot of computer horsepower.
So, what are the opinions of other readers on 4K gaming? Is it something that people use today, would want to use in the future, or aren’t worried about?
Anyway, whatever you’re playing, have fun! The Dude Gives Up
