    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    Delight and disappointment: Got my first SS rank yesterday! Playing Journey on easy, only one of the stages, but it felt good. Still no Perfectris - got 17 lines in Zone multiple times. Aaagh!

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    I'm working on this too, got bad habits in my muscle memory. Trying to notice every time I get a T, L or J at low speeds and do the more efficient spin.

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    Tried out most of the Effect modes for the first time earlier (10 in fact, I got an achievement for it). The ranks seemed pretty clear about my skill level, I'm a bit disappointed I couldn't keep the streak going - B, B, B, B, B, B, B, B, C, A! The A was for the mad one that throws a bunch of tricks at you. Tremendous fun.

    Mate. Mate mate mate. I'm gonna dive into that this weekend, thanks so much! Big surprise that someone also into fighting games loves sharing the tech

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    It's a bit special, eh? I do like to see a rllmuk love-in thread. Glad everyone's enjoying it. This might be the game to actually convince me to learn some advanced tactics, after watching all those great TGM speedruns and getting moderately competent at high speeds on the Tetris bit of Puyo Puyo Tetris. I still only play with one rotate button though, and I don't know my T-spins or how to do a four-wide. @Jonster, any suggestions for where to look?

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I'm settling into this, but feel like I'm still a while away from really having freedom to explore. A few more story missions and then I might start to really wander. Controls still do my nut in, apart from the horse riding which feels beautifully natural - pretty damn important.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Hoo boy they weren't kidding about the controls. And as a tutorial, this is rough going. I have to read tiny messages in the corner of the screen, which quickly disappear, while there's also dialogue going on, which I've got on subtitles instead of loud audio because it's fucking 1am. At least there seems to be a manual in the start menu. It is very pretty so far, but what would be even prettier is a clear indication of where I can save. Try and find the menu item and it's locked. What mate??? You've released a hyped cinematic game exactly 9 hours before people are due in work, and I don't know for sure if you'lll save my progress. I honestly think I'll love this game if I give it time, which I will. But as a former teacher, bad tutorials piss me off.

    The boss of that one is designed to make you panic! Paging @imp for tips, as he's already ascended

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I've got the fear over this one. Looks like it might be the first game (which I adored), plus joys of new tech and some Zelda-esque open-world magic. My god it's a commitment, though. 60 hours is The Wire territory. Yet I had so much fun discovering BotW with everyone else. I'm leaning towards the digital pre-order and getting it downloaded nice and ready for Saturday morning.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    Got my 5hr speedrun achievement yesterday! Very achievable after a few playthroughs and following a good route (here's one) - had nearly 90 minutes to spare. Lovely for a hungover Saturday.

    Doctor Who

    There were a few moments where the music stuck out to me - in a good way. Didn't know there had been a change in team there. Looking forward to the series - I think Whittaker probably needs a few episodes to really nail it down but she's on the way. And as I'd predicted, Bradley Walsh was decent. They've got a habit of turning what sounds like the worst casting (Piper, Tate, Lucas) into very agreeable characters.

    Doctor Who

    I was hoping the shot of Bramall Lane was foreshadowing it as the source of evil alien energies and she'd have to blow it up. Alas.

    Nice one! Charm chat:

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    So pleased this is going to get a wave of new players on other consoles, and I look forward to reading folks' adventures in this thread. Congratulations @imp! Hope to follow you there, unless a new game really distracts me I think I'll be playing this for a while, perhaps intermittently. I did practice...
  15. At the moment I only try to pick up SFV when something exciting is announced, which means I turn on my PS4, get faced with a huge two-hour update download, and try to find SFIV players online instead. (I had some fun lobbies! Two really good folks who went all-random-select and still beat me, then got a few wins in a lobby advertised as "less than 1000BP" which was technically true but I was a bit better than that but also horrible because I'm so out of practice). Anyway, I hear there's some sort of Dojo system in the offing and it'd be really fun to join with my trash Laura! https://www.eventhubs.com/news/2018/sep/26/heres-how-get-started-street-fighter-5s-new-dojo-mode/
