    Nintendo Direct - 13th September (11 PM BST, 12 AM CEST)

    That's a pretty good Smash-intro.

    How many Final Fantasy-games is it possible to release in 2019?

    This Asmodee-deal is pretty huge.

    Destiny 2: Forsaken. No raid spoilers please.

    Yeah, the Atalanta-D actually made me swap out the regular Origin Story/Nameless Midnight-combo in the Kinetic slot. It just feels so good to blast away with it. Could use a bigger magazine, though.

    Super Mario Odyssey - ALL CAPS

    You don't need Amiibos to unlock the costumes, they will become available as you play. The Amiibos only unlock them faster. Which is much better than actually hiding content behind Amiibos, like Nintendo did with Epona/Wolf Link in Breath of the Wild.

    Destiny 2: Forsaken. No raid spoilers please.

    I've played quite a bit of Destiny 2 on the PS4 (reached 300 with my Warlock), still looking forward to starting fresh on PC. Don't really know why. Found the raid a drag and the endgame dull, but it's just something about enhanced graphics, better FOV and running through the campaign again with more precise controls that has me almost as excited as I was a month ago.

    New people: say hello here, let us know how you found rllmuk!

    Hey guys. I once posted a tear inducing nostalgic essay on the old Edge forum about how the UK was my Japan during my childhood above the arctic circle in the 1980s. I think John Pickford made it a sticky for a few days. Then I went away and was a game critic for 12 years. Now I'm old and tired and just a regular player able to enjoy video games again. Good to be back.

    Videogame sample in song

    I'm certain that the melody that starts at 0:08 in is from some japanese RPG, but which? It's been bugging me all day, does anyone recognize it?

    Guitar Hero III

    I noticed this too when playing the full version yesterday. I dont use a plecter, but like to bang out riffs with my thumb, and sometimes streaks were broken for apparently no reason at all. I blamed the new guitar, but now I understand that the software is at fault. Surely this will be fixed with some software update real soon?

    The Eye of Judgement

    It's like Solitaire in Windows with cool animations. After a while, the thrill of watching the onscreen action wears off, and you find you spend more time studying the small print detailing the cards characteristics than the TV-screen. A day later you won't bother to turn on the PS3, and rather work out the damage dealt by the cards in your head when playing a friend at the kitchen table. My impressions after having played it for a month.

    Space Giraffe - new Minter XBLA game

    It's very confusing, and the tutorial doesn't really help. Minter has written a sort of walkthrough for the demo on his webpage (Linky), that clears up some stuff.

    Guitar Hero II

    Create a new band, play four songs, turn down encore, achievement unlocked, delete band.

    Guitar Hero II

    Unless it contains tunes from Metallica, AC/DC and Led Zeppelin. Then all the petitioners will cry themselves to sleep every night waiting for the price to go down.

    Lumines Live

    Just discovered that you have to download the "puzzle pack", "advance challenge pack" and the "vs cpu" packs separately if you want to play these modes. The complete Lumines Live will end up as expensive as a full price game, it seems.

    Lumines Live

    This will be the most expensive Live Arcade game yet. The game costs 1200 MS points for the "base game" on partnernet, meaning you can play the "base" version of challenge mode, which consists of 10-15 skins (didn't count them) before you get back to skin one. So I quit that mode after looping once, and decided to try the "advance" version of challenge mode to get more skins and more of a challenge. Turns out to play the advance mode you have to download the "advance lumines" add-on pack, which costs 800 MS points. So we're talking 2000 MS points for the whole game, which is probably a new record for Live Arcade. Not that it's really that expensive, it's a great game, but still. And the game controls fine, as long as you learn to use the stick, the d-pad is worthless.
