  1. I think I got it in a Humble bundle with a bunch of other games and I didn't really give it a chance at first, but it's worth sticking with.
  2. There's a Devolver sale happening until November 1st (6pm). Death's Door, Not A Hero, Enter/Exit the Gungeon, The Messenger, Hotline Miami, Inscryption and more... https://www.humblebundle.com/store/promo/devolver-publisher-sale/
  3. It's now being released on February 25th. (No big deal for me as I'll have enough to play in January already. )
  4. Does Strider (2014) count? It feels a bit more accessible but I had fun with it.
  5. It’s not utilised as much in games, but the holodeck thing is why I find AR kind of awesome as well. When I had a Nokia Lumia and could have superimposed floating labels and markers on the camera’s view of my streets it felt very GTA; very videogame-y. It just needs to be shoved into some unassuming affordable goggles/specs
  6. Elden Ring confirmed to be part of the Armored Core universe.
  7. I only got around to the TDK Trilogy last year and I expected edgy gritty grimdark misery but afterwards I felt like it wasn't afraid to be silly and OTT with some of the spectacle and characterisation - it was pleasingly daft at times without doing anything ruinous. That trailer up there feels a bit more... mainstream, somehow? Which isn't a bad thing for me. It gives me vibes of the pre-Nolan stuff, but with modern production quality.
  8. It’s just a subjective thing which I don’t think is intended to be taken too seriously. I remember when P4G was reduced to £8.99 (as a regular price on PSN, not a special discount) and people were still waiting for it to be on PS+. I countered by saying that it’s already a bargain at £35, but in all seriousness I know that it’s a risky purchase if those kind of games do nothing for you.
  9. Lately I seem to have self-control over impulse buys but no self-control over day one purchases. So I'll go for weeks or even months without buying new games and then put down £45-50 for a Persona 5 Royal or a Neo: TWEWY. Although like @GamesGamesGames I'm often confident that these purchases are worth it. I'm generally over special editions though. Unless I get extra content as a consequence of my desire for day one purchases (e.g. Yakuza: LaD and its "Day Ichi" steelbook edition.)
  10. It’s gimmicky and a bit daft, but I like the way that WarioWare Twisted committed to the tilt controls in its menus. Menu entries are arranged in a circle and the circle spins around as you tilt to the left or right. It instantly sells the motion gimmick before you touch a minigame. Honourable mention to Yakuza: LaD and the battle transitions and menu overlays feeling a bit more natural than Persona’s way of whisking you away to a miniature arena. Also the four-button battle menu navigation is pretty neat.
  11. I grabbed the emblem as well. I'm not too bothered about the bigger rewards this time around, but I was keen on the emblem and pulse rifle. I'll probably just do what I did last time and leave it until the last day before I spend my candy on a bunch of crappy loot boxes.
  12. This is out now. £25 on Steam, but 20% off (so £20) until the 29th: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1451080/DUNGEON_ENCOUNTERS/ £25 on PSN, but 20% off for + users until the 28th: https://store.playstation.com/en-gb/product/EP0082-CUSA25979_00-9415366927931956/ £25 on the eShop, but 20% off until the 21st: https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Nintendo-Switch-download-software/DUNGEON-ENCOUNTERS-2051105.html
  13. Probably Deltarune Chapter 2. It's tricky to recommend because experience with the first chapter helps, and a lot of the best bits are spoilerific - but it has tight pacing, lots of creativity, a charming and funny narrative and some ace tunes. I definitely want to put it somewhere in my GOTY lists. Also, I still have an appetite for enormous games that devour evenings, so I haven't got to the "everything's too much effort" stages yet! I played through Chrono Trigger for the first time this year and it was unbelievable. Hoping I can get into Elden Ring next year.
