    Star Trek Discovery

    I actually quite enjoyed that. It was a big improvement over most of the first season for me, and seemed to be making a point of addressing some of its issues. It certainly wasn't perfect and that turbolift scene was still awful, but it was a lot better. It felt a bit more like a Star Trek show for me, in that it was a return to an optimistic vision of the future people are excited to explore.
  2. Well that was eventful. Thanks so much for the revive, @Rikku. Roscoe's increasingly realising that this adventuring lark isn't quite what it was cracked up to be.

    Microsoft Rewards

    Xbox and Microsoft gift cards do get reduced from time to time. A £5 Microsoft card is normally 5,850 points, but has been reduced to 4,410 a few times. I'm not sure how often this happens though.

    Abandoned Games (2019)

    If it helps, I bounced off Celeste to start with too. I'm not normally one for twitch platformers, and I don't think I made it out of the first level before I thought it just wasn't for me. I went back to it a bit later though after seeing so much praise, and it ended up being one of my favourite games of last year. It was the story that really hooked me in, adding an emotional reason to keep playing beyond simply overcoming the challenge. That challenge became a lot more fun in its own right once the platforming clicked though, helped by some generous checkpointing, but the story was so well told, and became so strongly linked to that challenge that I couldn't put it down. It might also help to know that there is no reason to tackle the game's optional challenges (strawberries, B-sides etc) unless you want to do so for your own sake. I just stuck to the story, and found it really rewarding. It's still cool if it's still not for you after all that, but it might be worth sticking with for longer if you're still early in the game and see it as "just" a twitch platformer. It's not that long a game either.

    Nintendo Mobile : Nearly 3 years have passed

    I'm pretty sure Nintendo have nothing to do with Pokémon Go, and wouldn't get any money from it at all. The contract would be between Niantic and The Pokémon Company. Edit: Based on the replies below it turns out they do get a cut after all, which shows what I know.

    Nintendo Switch

    You can remove stuff from your Netflix viewing history, which might also fix your recommendations.

    What games did you complete? 2019 Edition

    And yes you can burn anything. I used hooks to keep burnable trash out of the way as well as for stuff I wanted to keep, and as a result I accidentally burnt at least two lamps.

    What games did you complete? 2019 Edition

    Xbox One and PS4 versions are listed as "tba" on the dev's website. I don't think there's been any word on a release date though.

    Doctor Who

    I remember really liking Dark Water, but I was slightly disappointed with Death In Heaven by comparison. It was still okay though, and still better than most of the RTD finalés for me.

    What games did you complete? 2019 Edition

    @Mitchell Glad you liked it! It was certainly a memorable start to the year. As for the spoiler stuff:
  11. My main strategy this year is not to buy anything until I'm ready to actually play it, unless it's on sale for a really ridiculous price. I've got so much to play already, and it's always a bit of a facepalm moment when a game I bought ages ago but not played shows up on Game Pass, GWG or PS+. But yes, I don't think things are any worse for people who don't subscribe to Game Pass. If nothing else it means they can play anything on the service for a month for a one off fee of £8 (at most), including new first party releases.
  12. I'm trying to use it as my main source of new games this year, along with Games with Gold, PS Plus and my backlog. I've got so much to get through already that it just seems silly to pay full price for games at launch now.
  13. Enterprise Season 3 and 4 are genuinely quite good for the most part. I'd certainly rate them over Discovery so far.
  14. Hmm. I guess we'll find out soon either way as Episode 2 is out on the 24th.
  15. Ah, looks like it's just the first episode of Life Is Strange 2. Oh well!
