    Monster Hunter: World

    I stopped at Diablos last year as it was a wall. Then got distracted by other games. Still need to get back into it and introduce him to my hammer.

    Gaming tropes that need to go away

    Same here on TheSixthAxis end of year awards. I totally forgot about it but it did release on the cusp of the year. Keep on meaning to write up a paper I gave on its relationship with American myth building and Trumpian ideas of Reagan nostalgia.

    That's pretty much 'Where the Water Tastes Like Wine'. Which is why it's great.

    Kingdom Hearts 3

    Ditto. It's lushly put together and the worlds have lots of detail to look at but not a huge amount to do. The combat is so overdone that it largely seems to do itself. The Game and Watch things are awesome though and some of the other minigames are enjoyable. The end is so overburdened though. There are multiple enemy fights where beating one leads to a cutscene where the others just disappear whilst some traditional emo KH dialogue goes on. Really felt like they were phoning in the tying up loose ends there. It is a really good game but has done nothing to fix the flaws and annoyances of the earlier titles.

    New people: say hello here, let us know how you found rllmuk!

    Nope. Although he sounds like a top bloke

    A movie watchers blog

    Oooooh. This is based on a brilliant Lindqvist short story. Had no idea it was being filmed. Will get hold of this as soon as I can.
  7. The blog looks amazing. My research is literature based (well, texts broadly as I look at films and games through a literary criticism angle) but so often end up (mis)using social and political theory. Look forward to reading the book
  8. Looks fantastic, @BadgerFarmer. I'll get that advertised amongst my Gaming Studies peeps on Twitter etc. How'd you swing the Zizek pull quote? That's a hell of a name to have on there

    Played the demo for an hour or so and I really like it. Got enough else on that it can wait until it leaves Early Access but it's good. Apparently the Portal stuff comes in later (sounds like there is around 20h of game).

    @schmojoHadn't heard of it but there's a demo available. Might have a look tonight.

    Playstation Now

    Ah. That makes sense. Will maybe try the trial first before making a decision. Cheers @SozzlyJoe

    Playstation Now

    Is everything downloadable? Don't have space for another console but want to play some PS3 stuff I missed and thinking a month or two of this would scratch that itch. Mainly looking at PS3 exclusives like : Tokyo Jungle, GofW Ascension, Infamous 1 and 2, Heavenly Sword, Genji, and most of all, Ni no Kuni. Bit confused as to whether the latter is actually on the EU Now list or not.

    Just picked up a PS Vita....

    Most of the games that do drop in price are largely due to being cross platform as well. Can lead to nice surprises when browsing your download lists (and annoyances; bought Lone Survivor on PS4 intending to play on Vita but they're separate titles) but shows up the lack of care Sony have.

    Resident Evil 2 Remake - no spoilers pls

    I can see that, but I loved the sheer ickiness of the sewer. Made a great contrast with the artsy PD and the clinical labs. Plus the moans of the enemies there were rendered extra effective by the splashing noises. Plus, the characters actually comment on wading through shit

    Used to be regularly but been really slow past few months. I'm hoping for a decent sale now that Vita isn't part of Plus but not holding my breath.
