    Deadwood

    Having recently re-watched all of it for the 4-5th time, i still think Season 1 is perfect. I remember disliking quite a few characters at first, the preacher especially. But now, after repeated viewings, you can see and appreciate how utterly heart-breaking his story is. And it gets me every time. The subsequent seasons, despite being fantastic TV (especially by today's Netflix standards) will always fall short in comparison. There is a lot of good stuff, don't get me wrong, but very few TV shows can that maintain that level, year-in-year-out. I don't have high-hopes for this movie spin-off. Like all these fan-service cash-ins. It's bound to dilute my wonderful memories of a series that was bold, daring, brash, uncouth, and gave us Al Swearengen.

    Dark Souls Remastered

    If you told me 7 years ago that you would be able to play Souls on the train, plane, toilet, outside (damn you screen glare), i would've laughed in your face. And even though semi-powerful handhelds aren't new (RIP Vita), the Switch is legitimately game-changing! And i love it dearly. Now give me a DS2 port and i'll be deliriously happy. On a side-note i think they missed a trick by not releasing Scholar type remixes of the series as optional DLC. Sure, it would ruin the balancing and fine-tuning of the OG experience, but when you've played these games to death, you pine for a reason to return. Maybe a Mario Maker type creator where you have Artorias, The Sinner, and The Dancer in the same arena. Imagine that!

    Samsung 128GB Micro SD Card (SDXC) UHS-I is only £19.99 at MyMemory. Is that cheap? Cause now i'm not sure...

    The Shotgun is much more forgiving with its parry window due to the pellet spread and slower shot speed. Downside: you will have to be close enough to smell their armpits.

    Bloodborne

    Spent an hour last night refreshing my memory by making a list of my current builds, along with their progress/SL/stat spread/weapons etc. 10 save slots = 10 builds. A few of them very tasty indeed. Now i need to shake off the cobwebs.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I'm gonna post here because a few friends i've spoken to over the past week don't know about the RDR2 app for your phone or tablet which lets you see the map in real time (incl. waypoints, random events, health/stamina bars etc). It makes galloping into the foggy/unknown parts of the map so much easier.

    Dark Souls Remastered

    The first half of this game is utterly sublime, partly due to the intricate level design, but also due to no bonfire warping allowed. After that it peters out, lets be honest. Both the sequels diluted the experience with bonfires seemingly every 200 yards, and warping from the off, which took away any sense of adventure. There were none of those crucial judgements necessary where you have to weigh up: "how deep can i go, and if it goes tits up, can i get back alive, souls intact?" The purest and most memorable of all my [single-player] experiences with Souls is my 'no bonfire run of DS2' (and it was before they fixed the durability bug). Now that was a journey with only one direction and you had to deal with it. I was pretty proficient with the game at that point so deaths/re-spawns all the way back to the start of the game weren't as bad as you think (i died maybe 2-3 times the whole run). But what it did do is reinforce the fact that the sequels had lost that fear of the unknown, and that sense of trepidation: "Can i press on with just one Estus?"..."Please give me a bonfire!" All that being said, i've been trying my hardest to play DS1 on Switch (and PS4 before), but i can tell i am completely and utterly burnt out. A shame, but after 7000 hours over From's Soulsbournes, its bound to happen. I'm sure i'll dabble every now & again, and i still enjoy jolly co-op more than any other gaming experience, but when you have made & played every build imaginable, the drive & inspiration is all but gone. Or maybe i should stop reminiscing and grind those Pinwheel Skeletons for a Remaster of my Hot Wheels build?

    Diablo III - Eternal Collection out on Switch

    After trying many builds on the PS3 version, i went completely against my usual "type" on PS4 with Crusader, and took him to highest dificulty solo min/max. At that point the game kinda loses its appeal - spamming abilities with infinite power/stamina and just speed-running/killing levels gets old very quick. I'm gonna try Necro on Switch. But i'm not a fan of assists/pets etc.
