    Yeah, this was more or less.my experience. Wandering around with A held down, occasionally pressing the other face buttons when one of my powers had regenerated with little to no strategy whatsoever. It reminded me of a FTP 'clicker' style of game.

    Ooh. Hopefully it'll be ported to console, so I can buy it but then never play it because I'm a big wuss

    4/10 in this month's Edge. Lots of bugs and clipping issues, apparently, which is less than ideal in a platformer. If Rayman is still on sale then get that. Inside is also utterly fantastic, and is on sale, but is more of a puzzle platformer.

    What's Devotion, then? Not heard of that one.

    Abandoned Games (2019)

    Okami HD (Switch) I stuck with this for about four hours before getting bored. It's doesn't do anything especially egregious (although the representation of female characters, which I've talked about in another thread, leaves a lot to be desired), but I was distinctly aware that I was playing a PS2 game while playing it, and action-adventure games of this type have moved on a lot since it was originally released. While it may well have garnered lots of critical acclaim 12 years ago, post-BOTW it's just a bit dull and I was struggling to find the enthusiasm to play it. Looking on How Long to Beat and discovering it's about 50 hours long was the straw that broke the camel's back. Unfortunately, I'll never now know it's charms having not played it when it first came out. One for the 'Modern games that have ruined classic games' thread. Next!

    I got a bored with Diablo as well, although some people think it's the best thing since sliced bread. I'm suspicious of any game you can 'play' with one finger held on the attack button while you're watching TV.
  7. Free dynamic theme for PS4.

    What books did you read in 2019?

    When do you guys do all your reading? I drive to work and listen to music so I'm not reading or listening to audiobook on my commute. I tend to do most of my reading just before bed, for about 20 minutes before I fall asleep, and then for another 15 minutes or so in the morning over breakfast.

  10. Cool CGI trailer: This looks really good. Like LA Noire mixed with Cthulu. That actual Cthulu game last year was a bit naff in the end, wasn't it?

    Days Gone - Sons of Anarchy x Last of Us

    I'm quietly optimistic about this. As mentioned, it looks very derivative but still has the potential to be very good.
  12. Can you pause in this?

    I've bought Night in the Woods but not actually played it yet, although I've read lots which is very positive. I was tempted by Thimbleweed but have never really got on with 2D Lucas Arts-era games, although I love Grim Fandango. Is the logic to the puzzles as awry as it is in the early Monkey Island games?
