    You're right! Sorry, I didn't know that.

    What was the total value they put on the customs declaration? Under £18 should be tax free IIRC.

    I know how people love grip talk, so: my Satisfye turned up today, first impressions are that it feels great, but it hasn't magically made me better at Celeste. Yet. If anyone else has ordered one: it took a week to arrive from Hong Kong, and it was marked as value £17.30 so didn't have any extra customs / VAT charges.

    Good to hear - coincidentally I ordered one last night, after trying the ORZLY grip for the first time and found it pretty uncomfortable. The main reason is to try to help me play Celeste better. I picked it up in the weekend sale (or rather, like @bm, my friend from America "WaveyUSA" was visiting and bought it on my console) and I love it. It's difficult but absolutely fair - it's like a series of platforming puzzles, and you spend a little time working out what you need to do (usually after an initial "oh fuck off I can't do that"), and then a longer time trying to execute it. It feels brilliant to control, really well honed, and a good variety of challenges so far - I'm only somewhere in chapter 3 at the moment though, under half way. A really nice touch is the way it gives you optional extra challenges - there are occasionally awkwardly-placed strawberries you can collect, which I think have no effect other than increase your strawberry score, but they are still really satisfying to get. Anyway I know it's had some love in the forum previously, but adding in my recommendation for whatever that's worth.
  5. I don’t really know what’s going on in this fully, but I think someone from here joined my game tonight? I’m only a few hours in, level 6, someone else popped up, I died (while I was paused, trying to look up what the health potion button was, during many little things attacking me) and then the game seemed to crash - I couldn’t move, the screen was about half as bright as normal. Anyway my apologies to whoever joined me, I hope I didn’t come across as rude for quitting out when it crashed. Otherwise I’m finding it fun if a bit overwhelming, there’s lots of things I don’t feel I have a proper grasp on yet, and maybe just haven’t been adequately explained yet.

    Is there anything in particular that’s bugging you? Either I or others in the thread could probably give you a quick yes/no on whether an apparent inconsistency is resolved later on in the series.

    This review is why Shadow Warrior 2 was on my wishlist: https://www.quartertothree.com/fp/2016/11/18/shadow-warrior-2-best-pure-shooter-since-painkiller/

    The Good Place

    Just in case anyone's missed it, there is an official Good Place podcast. It's hosted by Marc Evan Jackson (who plays Shawn) and has a couple of guests per episode - typically a writer and an actor, but also occasionally someone from the production side. It's just as warm and enthusiastic about the show as you would expect, and everyone seems so genuinely nice. There are some really interesting behind-the-scenes stories, like the writer's room getting in philosophy professors for actual lectures, and who knew what when about certain plot events. There's a podcast episode dedicated to each TV episode, but it has been recorded recently so there are spoilers for the entire first two series throughout. Anyway: utterly delightful.

    The iOS gaming thread

    Holedown is superbly done, and really addictive, to the point where I was glad it was fairly short lived, and there’s an easy place to stop. End game spoilers:

    Steam

    Probably the wrong thread for this, as it's not Steam, but... if anyone has Amazon Prime, you automatically get access to Twitch Prime, which is giving away a decent set of games to keep each month, Humble Monthly-style. This month they have: Steamworld Dig 2 (excellent) Tales from the Borderlands (Telltale adventure, and a rare, actually funny game) Tokyo 42 (fantastic art style, no idea how it plays though) Kingsway (if Windows 95 was an RPG: was on my wishlist due to this review) DubWars (???) There's a Twitch client app you have to install them through, but it's otherwise fairly painless.
