    NieR: Automata - Coming to Xbox 25/06

    I'm only just nearing the end of the first route but...

    Nintendo Switch

    To revive that all-time classic discussion about joy con problems; is it only the left one with known issues? My right one seems to be randomly losing its connection recently and I'm wondering if I need to take Nintendo's online advice of 'Basically move everything you own to a separate house to the Switch' or whether it might be faulty?

    Nintendo Labo - What's in the box?

    Wish it came out here today. That's all.

    Yakuza 6 - Baby's Day Out

    (Posting about a rule you made for yourself in a thread about a game is the first sign of breaking your rule and buying the game).

    Yakuza 6 - Baby's Day Out

    I made a rule to myself that I'd finish Bayonetta before I bought this. Bayonetta is too hard for me and it could be 2019 before I can Yakuza.

    DOOM - Rip and Tear... Anywhere

    Decided to buy this finally with a plan to play it last night. Game downloads are getting insanely big huh?

    Hitman - Sapienza currently free to download!

    Yeah I got ambitious and panicked. Onto the next one!

    Hitman - Sapienza currently free to download!

    Yes, IO team, that would definitely be a bad idea and nobody would pay for it and so don't do it. ... but also let me know if you do. No, I'm not sure in real life. Like @glb said above, without the restrictions it's just another target really. It's not like there's a shortage of contracts!

    Hitman - Sapienza currently free to download!

    When I get a chance to have another stab, I'm going to use these as tips. No, wait, call it reconnaissance or intel or something, that's better. Surely at some imagined future date (when season 2 exists, I guess), they'll just turn on all the ETs and say 'Everyone gets one go, but that one go can be on your own timeline now'.

    Hitman - Sapienza currently free to download!

    I wondered about for twenty minutes and didn’t come across him around the mansion. So he’s still on my hit list for this week. Someone should change the thread title to the fact that the best map is now free, on the off chance anyone’s missed it.

    All things Yakuza!

    Nice. Very hyped for it now!

    All things Yakuza!

    So last year I played my first Yakuza game (zero, obviously) and I just watched the credits roll on Kiwami. I can’t stress enough how into this I am. The overall tone, the fairly linear, directed action gameplay that doesn’t ask me to wander a huge map looking for trinkets, or make sense of endless loot. I love those things in games, but love this because it’s just the change of pace you need to break the never-ending open worlds up a little. And the story. That’s what it’s all about for me — it’s not clever, or genre bending, or wildly original. It just puts these characters you care about through some shit and twists and turns enough to keep interest right up to the end. I guess my next step will be 6, though, which feels really weird. Guess there’ll be a lot of story to make sense of to bridge the gap, but I don’t have anything I can play the interim games on.

    Nice! It’s so rewarding when it goes well. Which sadly it didn’t with The Broker just now. I broke the one Hitman golden rule - don’t whip out a gun in the heat of the moment. Ever. Onto the next one! Genuinely one of my most loved games of the past several years — here’s hoping this re-run of elusive targets leads right into season 2!

    Monster Hunter: World

    By no means a monster hunter expert but if I remember rightly: 1. I think they slowly regain a capped amount of health and also stamina. 2. There are quests where you have to deliver them -- I guess taking them back to camp will also let you sell them. 3. It scales, but I think only once (Ie. it scales if you have 2+ players, not one increase for 2, another for 3, and even more for 4). I'm at the point where I can go fight Nergigante but would definitely need to grind first -- had a pootle around the elder's recess but not done anything there of note. I feel like I'm maybe reaching the point where I put it down. But then I've said that three or four times before now. Maybe it's time for me to jump in and do everything multiplayer to speed it along a little.
