  1. Yes, we both died. It just doesn't make sense to me that I was reincarnated (loaded from a checkpoint?) but the horse didn't.
  2. Quick question. I died whilst out of mission and when I reloaded, my horse (that I’d paid $150 for) had disappeared / been replaced with a different horse. Is this expected or just a glitch? Ta.
  3. Wonder if you guys can help please? I have this (Eevee edition) in a cupboard ready for Xmas for my son (who’s 8) and me to play. I’ve never touched a Pokemon game in my life and don’t really know what the gameplay loop is (other than ‘Gotta’ catch ‘em all’ perhaps?). I watched a Giant Bomb quick look and that didn’t really inspire or inform me. If you can share a few words to help me understand the game better, I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

    Starlink: Battle for Atlas (No Man’s Starfox)

    Can anyone give their thoughts on how child friendly (in terms of difficulty) this game is? Think my 8 year old and 5 year old may like this but I'm a little concerned that it may be too hard for them. Also, anyone have any experience with the 2 player / co-op controller thing they sell with this? Thanks

    Mega SG - New FPGA Console from Analogue

    I have high hopes for that 8bitdo pad too. I have very fond memories of the mega drive 6 button pad in that style.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    Purchased this tonight on switch. Need to make space so that it can download and install though! You guys are making it sounds epic.

    God of War (2018) - Magni-ficent!

    I finished this (the main story) a few weeks ago now. Must say it is one of the best games I have played this generation. It gave me something that HZD seemed to lack and I felt compelled to finish it (must be the story I guess).

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Once you’ve beat him the gam loads with you standing outside the castle. Nothing in the world has changed so you are free to ‘dick around’ all you like. You'll notice a star is placed next to the game save name to denote that you’ve beaten Gannon.

    Nintendo Labo - What's in the box?

    We struggled with this until we realised that you tilt the whole thing side to side to steer. I guess it makes sense when I think about it as that how most turning is done on a motorbike when moving.

    I’d suggest buying the amiibo cards instead. I know they’re dodgy but it saves paying over the odds for plastic tat and they function exactly the same as the amiibo themselves in the game.

    8th Birthday Party - Ideas Please

    Thought I'd report back on the party in case anyone else has a similar challenge in the future. Here's a summary of each game that was played and the reaction from the party attendees: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - 4 player races with 6 kids meant a bit of waiting around for 2 kids at a time. I'd say this went down well with those who had played MK before but the newbies struggled a bit. PS4 Sportsfriends - A few rounds of joust (2 x wand controllers) but the kids were too timid to really get involved. We then tried the pole vault type game (2 player) which they thought was funny but to be honest they didn't get to grips with the controls. PS4 Minecraft (4 player) - The kids all really wanted to play this so I gave in. Split screen on different maps, sometimes creative and other times survival. This was on for around 45 minutes with the kids swapping controllers every now and again. Nintendo Land (Wii U) - Mario Chase was a hit. 4 chasers on Wiimotes all chasing the player with the gamepad. Really positive reaction to this, lots of shouting, laughing etc. Quick games (max 3 minutes) and a very simple concept = winner. Nintendo Land (Wii U) - Fruit picking game (sorry, I can't recall the name). Similar to Mario Chase except the gamepad player is the chaser. Another hit. Nintendo Land (Wii U) - Pikmin mini-game. I think we had lost a child or 2 by this point so the remaining 4 were happy to play this for quite a while. I've probably missed a few things we tried (which were likely not much of a hit). In the end the Wii U and Nintendoland delivered in spades. Easy and fun games to pick up and play with interesting dynamics of teamwork and asymmetric play.
