    I just checked my inbox. Yes, there isn't a date in the newsletter, but the subject is: "See how May is shaping up for Nintendo!" and everything else in the list is out in May. I don't think it's unreasonable to assume a May release.

    Hmmm. I guess next Friday is technically still May.

    Are we getting Cadence of Hyrule today? The newsletter said it was coming in May...

    Declining Sales. WTF Is Going On?

    As someone who lives in a flat in London, I have been all digital for a while. For me, the price premium is more than acceptable given the convenience of not having to swap discs, and having space in my flat to not have videogames either on a shelf or in storage. I'd much rather have a console, a spare controller in a drawer, and a bunch of games digitally than loads of games clutter. Also, I'm not that fussed about buying a game "day one", and as I do the majority of my gaming on Switch and PC, I don't really play many conventional "AAA" games either.

    This looks beautiful: Koral is a 2D side-scrolling puzzle game where you control a water current that moves under the ocean, swimming amongst the diverse sea life and bestowing healing energy to coral reefs. It's a comment on climate change too, with areas that have suffered from dynamite fishing, or polluted with plastic, or with bleached coral. Also looks like they had a great time making it:

    I enjoyed Yooka Layle a lot. As someone who has a ton of nostalgia for the Banjo Kazooie games, it felt like a brand new one of those. It may not sit well with some people in 2019, but sometimes I just want to play a collectathon in well crafted 3D environments.

    Aladdin - Live Action

    You had me second-guessing myself, as someone who thinks of themselves as having a good ear for BPM, the two sound completely different. So I checked. The new version has a BPM between 94-95 BPM (really bloody slow)! It speeds up slightly to around 100. Then I checked the old one and found where I think you're getting confused. The old one starts even slower than the new one (93-94 BPM), but dramatically speeds up from the first "Prince Ali chorus (at 36 seconds into that video) to 105 BPM - more than 10% faster than the new version. It then speeds up again later on to 115 BPM, and finishes the song on 124 BPM! This tempo change is dramatically reduced in the Will Smith version and is a huge part of what makes it feel like a complete dirge, compared to the foot-tapping danceability of the original. It also removes a ton of complexity, making it much more boring as a result.

    @Blunted - you'll want to be picking up Super Mario Maker 2 at the end of June too, if you have any love for 2D Mario platform games. Endless enjoyment.

    Crypt of the NecroDancer

    Rise from your grave!!! Anybody else picking this back up in anticipation of Cadence of Hyrule later this month? I'm unlocking more of the other characters and experimenting with them. I forgot how well put together this game is. I wonder if they will lower the difficulty or create an easy mode for Cadence? It's fine once you learn the patterns and with practise, but I can't imagine it'll be intuitive for those people who haven't played it before and who are jumping in without playing this one first.

    So far in the sale I've picked up: Celeste Steamworld Heist Bastion And I'm eyeing up Sega Ages Sonic. Is Sega ages outrun any good for someone who never really played the original?

    I got sent an email from Nintendo saying that Cadence of Hyrule is coming this month. But when is it coming this month?! It's the release of the year.

    Giant Bomb Fan Club

    If Austin came back to GBE it'd be incredible. He's terrible as an editor, with nobody to reign him in or bring him down to earth, but he was always great at Giant Bomb.
  13. I know the books don't exist, but the pivotal scene in this episode makes so much more sense with book Euron vs. show Euron. It's surprising that GRRM let them leave that object out.

    It's brilliant, isn't it? You'll get better at it over time, but you will never not panic during rush hour. As someone who used to work in really busy cocktail bars, it's genuinely a perfect recreation of the mixture of adrenaline, fear, and focus you feel when you're really under the hammer and are spinning five plates at once, metaphorically. It's all I've been playing the past few weeks, although I've had to stop playing it in bed as it gets me too wired to sleep.
