  1. I must say, I find the idea of picking and choosing which items are available deeply blasphemous.
  2. With the caveat that I'm one of the outliers that prefers Bayo 2 to Bayo 1, I'm starting to think this is pretty fucking great. Really enjoying wieving attacks between the demon slaves and the lady herself. The game does a pretty terrible job of onboarding, but I'm finding it more and more satisfying to play with each passing hour.
  3. Sekiro definitely went too far for me. I basically spent the same time on the final boss than I did on the rest of the game and it was a feeling of quiet relief rather than accomplishment when I eventually did it. I'd not recommend the game to any one because of it. That fucker made me feel like I was losing my mind.
  4. I can't seem to find details on this anywhere, but is there a way to switch between enemies when you're locked on? I'm not quite as down on this as the thread. I've always found these games immeasurably better the second time round when I can guilt-free skip the cutscenes, mind.
  5. I've only recently started listening to Filthy Casuals and, despite me being a bit huffy about adverts in general, find the way they weive the Manscape stuff in absolutely hilarious.
  6. It's pictures with pets on new hardware day, right?
  7. Mines with the UK courier now! It's Evri.
  8. Live and let live and everything, but if you prefer mouse and keyboard I do think that we can never be friends.
  9. I saw the credits roll on this today after around ten hours and absolutely loved it. An extremely unsettling and cursed experience that was constantly giving me the shivers. For me, the footage discovering mechanic just didn't get old; partly because of the constant whatthefuckery of what would be revealed but also because I found the scratching of the visuals to peel away what was behind it creepy as hell. There's just something fundamentally off about watching stuff backwards and forwards in slow motion. And man, the timing it used to make you do it; forcing you to meticulously investigate invasive or troubling scenes. It all just felt so much more adult than any of game I've ever played. I could feel it hovering over me whenever I wasn't playing it. You know that bit in Twin Peaks when Bob is hiding behind the sofa? It felt like that. I found it truly, truly terrifying. But I also completely loved it. I'll be talking about it for years. I don't really feel the need to totally understand it. I'm just happy to have experienced it. So good. So good.
  10. I realise it's incredibly tedious to read delivery updates but HOLY SHIT MINE HAS BEEN DISPATCHED!
  11. Admittedly, boycotting the game isn't about to make her as financially bankrupt as she is morally, but imagine the ripples if this sure fire hit was to bomb even slightly. Now imagine the message it would send to her if it were to fail completely. It all matters.

    Finally got round to starting this today and I've lost about four hours. Totally blown away by it, frankly.
  13. Mario Kart and Breath of the Wild may well tEcNiCaLlY have come out on the WiiU but they're definitely, definitely Switch games.
  14. This is all very good to hear. I was deffo on board anyway, but did have nagging doubts about Platinum's more recent output and this game's protracted development. Sounds like this might just be me worried about bullshit again.
  15. Jack Black sounded great I thought and; from the very brief bit we heard; Chris Pratt sounded good in'all. Upgraded expectations from cautiously optimistic to naively excited.
  16. Not quite at the same level as some of you badboys, but I managed to rank up my squid game to A- earlier
  17. Fuck me, December this year?! Perhaps I've not been paying attention but that seems to have come a little out of nowhere.
  18. I hope that's not just concept stuff because I think that looks pretty damn great. Getting Blur-vibes.
  19. I think I'm just going to wait on this for a night or two and go back to Splatoon. I'm anticipating issues given how convoluted it's felt up to this point.
  20. I find myself in the same situation and that certainly appears to be the case. I'm going to be in the slightly odd position of being able to use the stuff I got from my Switch account on the PS5 but not the stuff I got from my PS4 account
  21. Yeah, I mean that's fair - and simply skipping them is the simplest solution should it really bother me - but it was more a comment that the frequency of them is going up a bit. The previous two episodes to the current one had guests and I think they mentioned the next two are due to have guests as well. That seems like a high proportion to me. I wouldn't want it to be wall-to-wall Games Court either. I do seem to be totally on my own here, mind
  22. I feel a little twatty and self-conscious criticising given that The Back Page is still one of my favourite podcasts and Samuel occasionally pops in here, but I am a little disappointed they seem to be ramping up the guests recently. I find the people they get in either have to be entertaining in and of themselves (Dan Dawkins, Nathan Brown, Jen Simpkins) or slot in effortlessly in the friendship dynamic (Rich Stanton, Catherine Castle) otherwise Samuel and Matthew tone themselves down a bit. The core partnership - and the chummy bullshit it produces - is one the main strengths of the show for me. I dunno. I might be on my own here, but there's been a couple of times where it feels like the guest is sucking the air out of the room a bit.
