    Persona 5 | PS3, PS4

    Decided to go for this as I’d finished RDR2, Spiderman’s on the way for Christmas and I wanted a good single player game to get lost in. Was massively regretting it after the first couple of hours, but so glad I stuck with it. Love the combat, the story is wonderfully nuts and I’m already in love with it. I hope it’s normal to tackle the palaces over multiple days - if not I am massively shit at this. And the walking/running controls are a bit imprecise sometimes. And it’s sirprisingly tricky (after the first mini boss got ambushed by four of those horse twats, killed my character instantly, had to restart the whole section - nearly turned the fucking thing off in disgust), but it’s a sign of how much I like it that I’ve persisted every time I’ve died. Yeah, no regrets now. Great stuff

    PS+ December: Soma, Onrush, Iconoclasts

    Tried Onrush tonight. It’s fun in a what the fucks going on kind of way. After the first ten or so ranked matches I was definitely getting better so there is definitely skill to it, but it’s very manic. worth a few evenings effort I reckon

    Resident Evil 2 Remake

    Apart from about the first hour of Resident Evil 4 I’ve not played any games in the series. Maybe it’s time I changed this. It looks astonishing.

    RDR2 - Massive Spoilers Thread

    It probably was playing it safe. I saw it like a live band, rather than playing tracks from the new album, smashing out the hits. Who wants a band playing stuff off the new album? it was a crowd pleaser. I thoroughly enjoyed it

    Red Dead Redemption 2 Online Thread

    Started tonight spanx75 on PSN if anyone wants to play later. So far so OK. Think it’ll be good with two or three others as a posse though

    RDR2 - Massive Spoilers Thread

    I’m really enjoying the epilogues. Loved the building house bit and drunken celebrations after finishing the barn. I’m looking forward to finishing the story now. Will have a good opportunity to explore some of the areas I’ve Barry touched and complete more stranger missions. Also interested in the upcoming online mode. It’s imminent right?
  7. Finished the main story last night, and the final moments were really quite moving. What an experience Weird change of pace now, but it’s a sign of how much I’ve enjoyed this that I feel I’ve still got plenty of red dead left in me. GOTY
  8. Feels like the story is reaching its conclusion very soon (in chapter six). The tone of the game is so different now, and places I remember from earlier in the game feel weighted down by what’s happened - there’s a sadness and darkness now where before the nights were full of music and laughter. I’ve no idea how it’ll end but I don’t think well is on the cards. Its not not been a perfect ride. The facade slips a bit too often, and when it does it almost pulls you out of the world. Then you’ll reach the crest of a hill, a scene opens up in front of you and the wool is pulled, perfectly, back over your eyes again. Pretty sure its my GOTY. Still haven’t played Spiderman though.
  9. Smacks of “this gen is over, we won, why bother?”. Makes sense I guess. Hopefully means come 2020 we’ll have two companies who will be looking to get out of the gates with some smashing new games to make us all slavishly early adopt their horrifically unreliable, first gen, next gen hardware. And I’ll be at the front of the queue. Probably. Again.

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    TWENTY!!!! Finally cleared last stage of area five in normal. Area six now completely kicking my butt. Got a dodecatris thing though. Finally decided it’s time to get good at Tetris. Going to practice in bed with puyo puyo Tetris on the switch.

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    Ok. No. Level 12 speed is too much for me on the final stage of area 5 on normal. Even with full zone stored up. Aargh

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    Read thread. Rewatched original trailer. Swooned a bit. Weakness. Bought. Excited. God knows how many times ive bought Tetris now.
  13. Was mooching around outside Saint Denis earlier - poor chap on a horse called out for help before falling off. Picked him up, got him to a doctor... and was subjected to a very graphic amputation scene. Left him in the doctor, one arm down.
  14. I’m with Meh/Uncle Mike. Bought Yakuza 0 on a whim for a tenner after reading how amazing it was, but what I got was a very weird, dated feeling, poorly controlling relic that was vaguely embarassing to play in front of my missus. It was just... boring. Like Meh said. I feel like I’m missing out, but the desire to return just isn’t there. Shame.
