  1. Battered that bird-wolf prick senseless with just my second run with the Defect. Got loaded up with extra orbs filled them with ice and dark and went to town. Absolute awesome fun. On the other hand (pun intended) I just can’t seem to catch a break with Ironclad.
  2. I’m loving this. It’s an absolute blast. It really just an isometric Darksiders game rather than a Diablo clone. Combat is interesting and varied with a real difference of feel between Strife and War. Puzzles are classic DS type affairs fun but nothing too head-scratchy just yet. I’m not massively keen on the characterisation of Strife in some parts. He’s mostly good but goes a little bit ‘Poochy’ on occasions, especially shouting ‘This is my JAM!’ after killing some poor grunt. My only other gripes are the amount of reverb on the voice acting in the void and the frankly bonkers decision not to include a player position icon on the map. Overall I 100% agree with Moosey. Fucking Excellent.
  3. Thanks guys. I do jump on bludgeon whenever it’s offered, but that’s some fuel for tomorrow’s run.
  4. I just can not get a win with Ironclad. Got to the end a few times with no success, but that always seems to be predicated on picking up the lizard tail to give me a second chance. The only times I have got that far have been with a Strength heavy deck. Any tips?
  5. A bit behind in getting involved in the thread this year so here is a quick catch up to where I am so far: 01/01 – Lego Builder’s Journey Spent a nice couple of hours finishing this on New Year’s Day while this wife caught up with Eastenders. A lovely chilled if slightly abstract experience that for some reason reminded me of Thomas Was Alone despite being very different. Simply use the available Lego bits to construct a path around the beautifully lit environments with some very light puzzle solving and that’s pretty much it. Recommended for a night you don’t fancy getting to riled up. 28/1 – The Outer Worlds I feel very similar to others about this in that it started really strongly but started to run out of steam for me toward the end of Monarch. It didn’t help that, Parvati aside, I didn’t really like any of my companions which made me pine for a more Mass Effect type of affair. I did like the story enough to finish it (hence it’s appearance here) but something intangible was missing. Still it’s a solid 7/10 for me. 01/02 – Untitled Goose Game Another game played with my daughter which took far longer than it should have due to spending most sessions watch her terrorise the kid with the glasses (this itself was 10/10). Nothing to say that hasn’t already been said a very enjoyable romp around Borton-on-the-Water being a prick. Fuck that pub bouncer guy though. 04/02 – Wandersong Well this was lovely. An adventure game where you use music instead of weapons; where you a categorically told you are not the hero of the story but you carry on anyway as you still have a mission. With a simple art style and a palette that had my brain rifling through old Amiga games for comparison, you move from act to act using your songs to help people and try and save the Universe from destruction. The story is superb and really quite uplifting as your character is relentlessly optimistic which doesn’t get as annoying as you think it would. My only gripe on this is that the music controls could do with being a bit tighter but that’s probably the pretentious muso in me and by no means a deal breaker. 11/02 – Ghostbusters Like many of you I’m sure, Ghostbusters was an enormous part of my formative years, but I never got round to playing this one first time around for one reason or another. With a few gaming sessions spare before Darksiders hits the consoles I thought it would be a perfect time to squeeze it in. Glad I did. Despite taking a bit of time to get used to the controls (after playing Luigi’s Mansion 3 recently my brain kept expecting the proton streams to stay locked on ghosts) the gameplay was samey yet satisfying. I cracked a little smile pretty much every time I trapped a ghost from start to finish. Where the game shines, of course, is in its script. Written by Aykroyd and Ramis, it’s full of very authentic humour, silliness and one liners worthy of the franchise. The performances are mostly great with only, disappointingly, Bill Murray appearing to phone it in for long stretches. So despite feeling distinctly ‘last gen’ in its level design this was well worth the 6 or so hours to play through and a must for any GB fan.

    That 9ers 3 and out was the killer. Great game though.

    Here we go then fellas. Who’s everyone got tonight? I’m sticking with my pre season call of the Chiefs. I think it will be tough but I just have a feeling Mahomes is going to put the team in his back at some point. cant wait though. If both team play to their strengths it’s going to be an fascinating game.

    We call it the Superb Owl because that’s what iPhones used to try and auto-correct it to.

    We usually head to the Smoke House near us to watch but having a home party this year for a change. Playing some Blood Bowl beforehand then settling o with some pulled pork and nachos.

    Kick off is 23:30 so I would think about 03:30 for end game.

    Can’t argue with that. But I also don’t think we have to worry about a snooze fest this year. I think it will be an all timer.

    100%. After that 3 and out I said to my mate it was game over. Much like the failed fake punt last week, gave all the momentum to KC and they rarely let it go.

    I love the Pack, but I do hope the Niners win tonight as that D against KC O is gonna be some game.

    Ahh I didn’t see the shouting thing. Orion is correct, the dude clearly needs to get help.
