    The Expanse

    Waterstones always puts books on sale as soon as they arrive, rather than the release date.

    The Expanse

    I gotta say, the new book feels like a return to form. I'm not finished yet but I'm very excited to see where they go next.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    It's more to avoid frustration than anything, I've smashed myself up against some Kickstarter-backer-reward enemy and then fallen down a hole while I was looking around and discovered a new area.

    Just keep aiming for bits of the map that you haven't been in. You'll find everything eventually. If some fight or other seems impossible go for a walk around.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    This is definitely one of those games where it's reputation us completely justified. Sorely tempted by that special edition, but I might just get a set of lapel pins from Fangamer instead.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    I swear I think I'm nearing the end of this and I trip over a rock, smash a wall, and here's an entire new region filled with new enemies. Absolute masterpiece.

    Star Trek Discovery

    The Talosians look like dorks the big dudes in Prometheus beat up for lunch money.
  8. Gameplay analytics is a huge field. I did my dissertation on it. The state of the art has moved on a lot since then but examples like that Tomb Raider study and the deep dives Bungie were doing during the Halo years are really fascinating.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    I did and it has that balance of fair challenge I love in my boss fights. I don't think you're meant to make these games anymore, but don't tell anyone.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    This game is a combination of two genres I've never really gotten along with in the past (Souls and Metroidvania), but after a lot of early humming and hawing it's really got its hooks into me. Just beaten after a few good hard attempts, and it's really satisfying. I hope I can stick it out to the end, unlike other Souls and Metroidvania games.

    The Expanse - officially saved by Amazon

    The guy who ten minutes earlier you saw bribing Miller about not changing air filters and then was skulking about while all the kids were choking? He didn't change the air filters. The girl? Probably to remind Miller about the kids. The investigation? Nothing, it's a clichéd "asshole with a heart of gold" setup to tell you Miller takes bribes but is actually a Good Dude. The"terrorist lady"? Don't they talk about exactly who she is and why she's torturing the guy while she's doing it? I've heard a lot of complaints about the first few episodes being too dense but it is all there if you pay attention. It's pretty on the nose, mostly people loudly explaining what they're doing and why for four episodes.
  12. Won my second match by basically sneaking along behind the two lead characters like a combat valet chucking stuff at them and firing wildly at enemies when I saw them. Felt good.

    Certainly I think Season 3 clashed with The Terror, and I don't see him being 100% needed for Season 4, but hopefully he'll be back for the next one.
  14. I'm definitely going to renew my sub after the trial ends.

    They were setting him up for further down the line, I really hope they manage to hire him back as he's said he's not involved in the show any more.
