  1. I’ve just completed the White Palace. Jeez, that was tough - but so satisfying to get through it in the end. Now up to 105% completion. I should probably move on to something else really. What an excellent game!
  2. You let them I’m tempted to replay this at some point to see how some of the other avenues pan out (and basically be a bit more of an arse to people)
  3. I’ve just finished - what a great game! It’s nearly midnight here so I need to sleep but will post more thoughts tomorrow.
  4. Look forward to hearing your impressions. I have images of using one to take notes at work, but I know I'm just kidding myself and also want to try out a nice big e-ink reader :)
  5. Similar to @bradigor it took me a few attempts to get into this, but today I finally completed it at my fourth attempt. Not sure what made it ‘click’ this time but I’ve really loved it this time and can see why so many people rate it so highly. I only ended with a 90% completion rate but happy to have an excuse to keep playing to try to get that up to 100% before Silksong finally comes out. @CurryKitten - I found the second Hornet fight a similarly tough challenge. I can’t recall now which charms I ended up using, but after repeated fails I remember switching them up to try a different approach and beat her on my next attempt. I’m sure you’ll overcome her before long!
  6. Red Bull on another level by breaching the cost cap…. hard to give them credit when we know they had an unfair advantage (sure, they probably deserve it but it should cast more of a shadow over their year than it probably will)
  7. Thank you to those who recommended Boomerang Fu - I bought it a few days ago and it’s been a big hit. Kids love it, and we had great fun earlier playing teams - kids vs parents (they beat us… I blame annoying stick drift!)
  8. Cool down room was funny as he still hadn’t realised / wasn’t sure. Quite an anticlimactic way to clinch your second WDC (which really should only have been his first….)
  9. I’ve just reached Act IV and am really enjoying this, but completely get your point about missing lengthier puzzles @NexivRed I’ve not played a Monkey Island game since the second one, which I loved along with the first. Some of my happiest early gaming memories are playing the first Monkey Island over a school summer holiday and (in a pre-internet world) trying to figure out some of the more obscure puzzles. I even roped my parents into trying to figure stuff out (they were no help!) What I love about this is being back in this world - remembering things from the first couple of games which I’d forgotten about, and that it still feels like the Monkey Island world of the first couple of games. Sure, I’d like more complex multi-step puzzles and for the game to be longer, but I’m really happy with what is there and enjoying playing through it. I’m a bit apprehensive about how it’s going to end given that it seems to have marred the experience for some, but at the moment can’t see how even a terrible ending would reduce the joy I’ve had playing the rest of the game. Oh, and the music is brilliant - find myself humming bits constantly throughout the day at the moment.
  10. No need to worry about it at all. I have a similar set up and it’s never got confused about save states. It checks each time you open a game - even on quick resume - whether there’s a newer save it needs to load in.
  11. Track looks fine. All on inters EDIT: at least around turn 7! Yesterday seemed to stay wetter for longer in sector 3.
  12. More rain doesn’t look likely at the moment. Always hard to tell in Singapore though!
  13. Rain has stopped. Sweepers out.
