    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    This game is utterly sublime. Managed to beat Gen A. this morning after a couple of hours learning him last night. Such a good boss. I love the way the whole posture mechanism tempts you into being super aggressive when it starts to build up for your enemy. The risk/reward of being aggressive seems really well judged. It gives an amazing flow to the fights which I think is beyond what they achieved in BB - they seem to evolve in interesting and unique ways each fight as either you or the enemy start to build posture damage. I certainly found that fighting Gen A, each fight played out quite differently.

    I wasn't quick enough to do the double parry against Ashina Elite, but found you can dodge through him to the left. It's the same timing but only one button. You can follow up with a hit every time if you're quick enough.

    The first one is still the best one

    Dear Nintendo, please get on with it and release SMK for Switch with online play and time trial leaderboards.

    Presumably they tested having two symbols, one for jump and one for mikiri, and it was too easy. As it stands it works, but it's annoying as hell that it can mask the wind up animation. They maybe should have gone for something more subtle, like the sword glowing red.

    It is in there apparently
  6. Yeah I'd love a 60 hour epic Tetris story mode.

    An easy mode doesn't achieve anything positive in my opinion. Ok, give people an easy mode and they choose that and blaze through the game. Then they turn around and say "why is this game so revered?". Because these games are not really about experiencing the story or set pieces or whatever. The whole point of the game is to overcome the challenge and master the systems. I found this exact problem with God of War. I chose the default difficulty mode and after a while it was pretty straightforward progress through the game. The combat felt rubbish and I could button mash most of it. I completed it, but overall I thought the game was really underwhelming. I wouldn't be at all surprised if the game is actually pretty good on a harder difficulty setting. But by the time I'd got to that stage it was too late. The whole difficulty setting thing is almost always just poor design. Make people play it the way it's intended.

    What time does the embargo end?
  9. I'm not an experienced souls player and the only one I've completed is BB, but come on, let's not fuck about here, they're really hard games. Something like Vicar Amelia is just objectively a really hard boss.

    After Life - Ricky Gervais

    Agree with this. Watched the last episode last night and it did feel a bit rushed. Definitely a weak ending. But I thought this was a really excellent series overall.

    We all appreciate the extensive review. Well done?

    After Life - Ricky Gervais

    Watched the first two episodes last night. I thought this was really strong. Really funny but also desperately sad.

    After Life - Ricky Gervais

    Gervais isn't transphobic and nor are people laughing at these jokes. Just because it's about trans people doesn't instantly make it transphobic. If we stop laughing at jokes about particular groups of people then comedy is dead. For me Gervais is just saying it's fine to do whatever you like (I don't care, I'm not against people transitioning), but don't expect society to go to extreme measures just so you don't suffer even the slightest bit of discomfort (deadnaming is a ridiculous concept).

    Imagine looking at a game like this and being concerned about the resolution
  15. Is it? That wasn't even a Nintendo game.
