  1. I've been going through my old Humble Bundle codes and I have quite a few going spare, some of them are quite old but they should all work fine:
  2. I started playing the first one today on the Switch and I'm really liking it so far. The controls seem fine and I'm not missing the second screen. I did play through the first on DS many years ago, so far it looks like the difference is that you use the shoulder buttons to Press and Present rather than click on a screen. That and the updated graphics of course. It has been a while between playthroughs so I have no doubt I'm missing other changes, but nothing jumps out or has impacted my enjoyment of the game.
  3. Just the Games of the Decade quickly to hopefully get into to votes, I'll add comments later: D1. Super Meat Boy D2. Portal 2 D3. Rock Band 3 D4. Virtue's Last Reward D5. Celeste D6. The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth D7. Ghost Trick D8. Saints Row 3 D9. Mario Kart 8 D10. Neir: Automata
  4. Jan Piczle Colors (Switch) - I've always enjoyed Picross style puzzles and this is a collection of colour based Picross puzzles, a couple of trickier ones by the last few levels but this was fairly straightforward. Iit comes in a triple pack with two line puzzle games which seem much harder to 100%. Nice to play in short bursts or on journeys though. Gears 5 (Xbox One)- I nearly didn't play this as I wasn't that enamoured with Gears 4 but I'm glad I did as this felt like a big improvement on the series to me. There are a few rough edges and some annoying insta-kills, especially for one boss that I've talked about in the main Gears 5 thread, but overall it is still a great cover shooter and additions worked well. I don't really play much online anymore but this has got me tempted to jump in with some of the extra modes. I imagine it would be an even better experience in co-op but I'm happy to move on to other games now. Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Now Climax (360/Xbox One) - This is a game I have half played through a few times and across different platforms so I finally decided to get to the end of the game when I saw it sitting in my games list. I had a save that was most the way though the first mode so I picked up from that, I haven't done all of the modes but I got to the end of the main story thread. It still plays as well as I remembered but it is a shame that they shortened four of the game modes for this release as the levels in their place aren't the best, if I had known before that they have been part restored on the PC version I'd have gone to that instead. Good pick up and put down game that has a lot more to it than you'd think if you want to complete it 100%. Wandersong (PC) - I absolutely loved this. Yes it is easy to play through and some of the platforming sections are wonky as anything but the story and characters really stand out. Genuinely made me laugh in places and I made sure that I talked to everyone as often as I could to get as much out of it as I could. It has also some of the implements music through out in interesting and different ways. As I said earlier, it isn't really a challenging game and it won't be to everyone's tastes but I thought it was charming and definitely worth a look, especially as it is available on Gamepass now and you won't have to put too much time in to work out if it is for you or not.
  5. No there are a few times you need to make a super build to progress but everything is pretty close by.

    Gears 5

    Having left it for a few days the Matriarch is down! Using the ice breaking to form barriers really helps but there was so much bullshit in that fight; the auto-aiming projectile, the way the ice breaks, getting stuck on gap that you can't quite run round once it has broken and, of course, the one-hit kills. My favourite was when I was taking out the ice only for the AI to run into where I was shooting as it broke, causing a game over for Del dying.

    Gears 5

    Just got up to the same boss fight and it is terrible, especially trying to do it in single player. I got really close which felt like enough of a slog and then it did a charge I thought I'd dodged but it swerved to one shot me. Really been enjoying it up to this point, it felt like a big improvement on GoW4 but I can see me dropping it if it takes more than a few more goes at the Matriarch as it just too long and not fun to play.
  8. While it is a new set of challenges in each room, I still felt my improvement in the game as the earlier rooms teach you the skills you need to tackle progressively harder challenges. By the end of each level you are chaining together all the skills you have learnt through out. Being able to go back later and Strawberry hunt is the best way to let you replay. I'm not sure what repeating rooms you have already beaten within the main story would add to the experience.
  9. I downloaded the demo as well last night and then bought it after only two races. Game are doing the deluxe version for Xbox and PS4 for £30 in their sale. I didnt realise you need to bump it up to realistic damage so I'll try that tonight for the rest of my demo time.
  10. I bought one yesterday and I can confirm it is a digital copy of the game.
  11. Double check your order as you can add a free game to the Argos offer, either Fallout 4, Anthem, Metro Exodus or The Division 2.
  12. The terms also say the price could go up for the new payment agreement so it might not stay at £25 as well.
  13. I just got the train back from Leeds after a work event and ended up playing Mario Kart and Smash Bros. on my Switch with the random person sat next to me after we got talking. First time this has happened but I love that this was an option
  14. This Nintendo page suggests it will be at that price until 9am PT on the 4th: https://www.nintendo.com/games/sales-and-deals/ I couldn't find anything EU specific though
