  1. Finished this earlier on today and it was fine, good even in places, but just too unevenly paced. Needed more combat options and enemy variety (the repeated miniboss got old fast). Without the hype this would have probably been happily received but it is a far cry from what people wanted or expected. Sold my physical copy straight away so only cost me about £9 to play it through - feel bad for those who went digital. I will probably pick it up again when it's <£15, by which time New Game + and extra story content should be available. The lack of Chapter Select is a real pain, and was the roadblock stopping me from trying for the platinum. Still, a nice appetiser for the Dead Space remake and there is definitely potential in this universe and from these devs - just as long as they listen to the feedback and mix things up a bit.
  2. Had my eye on this for ages during Early Access. Definitely on my shortlist for when I get a Steam Deck (by which time it may well have snuck onto Game Pass).
  3. I'm hopeful on this one. My main issue is the big franchise must be all the films syndrome. Like, I kind of get the Millenium Falcon echo in the trailer but then the awful Jurassic World did the same thing (as well as Sam Neill doing the Indy hat thing and Pratt seemingly auditioning for the role).
  4. Dragon Quest is now on PS+ - furthering the multiplatform annoyance. Save files should be platform agnostic in an ideal world. I understand the difficulties preventing that but would be nice if it could be sorted.
  5. Yeah - that whole area is a DLC/expansion scale section just thrown in. I spent ages there grinding The central puzzle was a nice nod back to the 2018 game too. Real standout section - and completely optional.
  6. Push left stick in runs, doesn't it? Not that there are many bits with no mindless shooting. It's a time capsule from 2002 for good or ill.
  7. Lots of broken stuff tbh. Was thinking about stacking another year whilst on offer but my auto-renew is £49.99 for premium (whichever the streaming one is) so not changing that. That's what I paid last month for a year too but thought it was a one time thing.
  8. Second this. 'Q' is a superb book made even better by ignoring the pseudonym and just pretending it was written by a pioneering 1980s footballer
  9. Soccer Story was fun from the demo on Steam. As mich like a football version of Golf Story as the name suggests
  10. That and pottage don't travel so well Here's my thoughts: https://www.thesixthaxis.com/2022/11/14/pentiment-review/ Love that writeup @BadgerFarmer jealous of the word count you were allowed Had to cut loads from my musings to fit the house style.
  11. In less academic taste, I was inspired to put together a Pentiment lunch for work today Been a while since a game made me do that...
  12. Something something, can't polish a terf.
  13. Well, *raspberries* to you both Tbf, though, if you don't have the patience to scroll past a few heartfelt history nerd comments then Pentiment may not be the game for you anyway Looking forward to hearing people's reactions to the game, whether from an 'over-educated' or layperson perspective. It's longer than I was expecting too with more going on than the quick synopsis suggests. I'm still mostly spending ages zooming out and enjoying the marginal animal illustrations.
  14. Loved the first few hours of this - had to step away whilst reviewing something else - but had to switch x and o around as could not adapt to dodging with x. Combat works so much better now. Makes more sense to me for x to be interact too. Oh, and switching on auto pick-up is a a great QoL improvement too, just wish it skipped the animation for it as well.
