    No Man's Sky

    Although that's the worst teaser ever I'll be looking forward to seeing what's new. Kept my physical copy just in case.

    100% Give Tarantino a $3 million budget and I think he would make a cracking film. It's been a long time and I love his first 3 or 4 movies.

    Harry's Heroes - The Full English

    Paul Gascoigne's cameo put Razor to shame in the turning-over-a-new-leaf stakes.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    I play it on and off and I'm still enjoying it. I sort of chip away at it an hour a week or so and I reckon I must be still less than half way through. I get why some people didn't take to it: there is an awful lot of 'backtracking,' but I think if you love the mood and setting then backtracking could easily be replaced with the kinder word 'inhabiting'. It does feel like a cohesive underground environment that feels persistent rather than abstract.
  5. I think there's very little difference between the violence in this and Fortnite. I guess first person gives it a bit more of a visceral feel but it still remains cartoony. I guess the 16 rating may be due to the finishing moves but I would hardly call them gory.

    Harry's Heroes - The Full English

    Yes this was better than expected and deeper than your typical lads reunited fare. I thought it was interesting that Razor was so obese and such a health risk that he had to see a doctor. Cue statement that he's going to turn things around for the sake of his kids and family. At the final weigh in he'd lost just 1 kilo (2.2 pounds), by far the worst of the gang. Maybe not so committed then. I could lose 2.2 pounds by skipping a meal.
  7. Yeah, I miss having challenges. Surely not difficult to implement so I guess they've left them out for artistic reasons.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    Yes, Mantis Claw and Moth Wing are what you need to access a lot of areas. I got them both around the same time.

    The Alan Partridge Thread

    Irish Alan's teeth, the dandruff on his lapels, the body language. Fantastic. I also thought Monty Don's acting was top notch.

    Losers is terrific. One of those speculative punts one evening but I ended up watching four in a row. The episode about Curling is my favourite - a guy who felt so deflated by a loss that he obsessively went about changing his approach to the tactics of the sport, and in doing so ushered in a rule change. Fascinating. The only odd thing about it is the opening credits which are at odds with the subject matter. I feel like I'm about to watch an episode of Jazz Club with John Thompson. Nice.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    I think this is the early bit I got stuck at for a while too. Sounds like you need to get to the Mantis Village via Fungal Wastes. If I remember rightly there's a kind of pogo jump move you need to do on the mushrooms which is not taught, you just have to experiment. So when you're about to land on the mushroom you swing your nail downwards and it pogos you upwards. This extra momentum will allow you to reach a new area (and a very important ability). All the other options you mention are later on in the game, though grinding for the lamp is viable. It's definitely worth getting to the Mantis Village as Hollow Knight really opens up soon afterwards.

    Astro Bot - PSVR - Game of the year 2018.

    Astro Bot is the only game i've ever platinumed. I expect you will need to look around (ie crane your neck) for some of those last trophies. Surely there's no shame in looking them up though? Some will also involve the devices you pick up. Essentially you could play it for another 20 hours and still not find them all.

    Dark Souls Remastered

    Definitely go PS4; Blight Town is chuggy on PS3 plus like everyone says, you can summon on PS4 and actually find people. And it's not much at CEX these days. It's also due a sweet sale price soon on PS Store.
  15. This is essentially me. I actually find getting kills more rewarding than getting to the last two squads or even winning. Last night I dropped with only one team mate but he/she quit leaving me on my tod. I skulked around the map tooling up and watching other squads wiping each other out, dealing out the odd bit of damage here and there in the confusion. So I'm in the last two but didn't stand a chance against the last three players who hunted me down like a pig. Felt good to survive so long but getting a kill is where my adrenaline rush is.
