  1. The loop is perfectly judged for the most part, so just as you've got used to one form or ability another one opens up. It's very clever as an RPG in that instead of being overwhelmed by all the quests it piles on you just complete them in the course of having fun with the game. I never felt the need for any major goal or objective to motivate me to keep grinding. It's an enjoyable end in itself.
  2. So we can expect Microsoft to win this every year from now on, since they basically own everything.
  3. Wordle 214 2/6* Out of nowhere. Streak is now 25.
  4. Reviews are coming in and generally good (including my own). I've always liked Drinkbox stuff and this is no exception. Should be on Gamepass later.
  5. Nobody Saves the World is the latest offering from Drinkbox, makers of Guacamelee and (the underrated) Severed. More of a silly action RPG/dungeon crawler this time, in which protagonist Nobody changes into a whole load of different character forms (including a horse and a slug), each with their own abilities. Also has 2 player co-op. It's coming to Gamepass and PC on 18th January. Trailer:
  6. I got into it on N64. It felt like a kind of edgy Zelda. But looking back I'm not sure it was ever that great really. I've not been desperate to play it again, anyway.
  7. Good read. There was also The Forgotten City, of course - a title taken a little too literally in this case.
  8. Presumably 'writing' isn't literally which one had the best script, more like overall storytelling or narrative design. Returnal, for example, is a great bit of videogame storytelling, regardless of whether it has good words or not.
  9. It makes a difference, for sure. I find it much easier to get on with a hollowseeker than a shotgun, for example, in the early stages. And one being slightly higher level than the other is rarely significant. Then again, it's often worth taking something that has perks still to be fully unlocked, because the more you unlock the better that weapon type becomes overall. The pistol can be a beast later in the game, for example, if you've been unlocking all the perks on it.
  10. It's fine until it comes down to the last 1 or 2 in each biome, then it's all a bit needle in a haystack.
  11. I'm tearing my hair out on this now, with just 1 cypher to find for the platinum. I've been down in that abyss maybe 10 times and explored just about every room. Looking at a guide/map, I'm now pretty sure I know which one I'm missing, but the room hasn't appeared. I don't think this was a good plan for the final trophies really, relying on the RNG like this, although I am still enjoying playing it.
  12. It's a story told from the perspective of an insurance investigator. The 'truth' is whatever's in the ledger.
