  1. This has gone on sale on PSN for about £16. Definitely one that's still on my list to play.
  2. Thanks for the replies, all. As I sort of figured out by the time I'd finished writing my first post, the answer to my original question, given my circumstances, is probably 'No'. I'm going to try to stave off buying any more multiformat games for the time being and then reassess after that. If I see one going for sub-£200, though, then the temptation might be too much.
  3. Lovely. I enjoyed Plague of Shadows but don't think I would want to play another game set in the same levels. One for the list!
  4. This has been niggling at me for a while and I can't figure out if it it would be a smart move or just an expensive impulse buy. At the moment I've got a Switch and a PS4 Pro and have a backlog for both of those consoles which is about 40 games strong, representing, at my pace, probably about a year's worth of games. Apart from having a passing interest in Gears 5 and Forza Horizon 4, none of the other Xbox exclusives really interest me, so if I did get an XB1X then it'd mainly be for the 3rd party games I've yet to play on PS4 (and I've played, or own but have yet to play, most of the best ones) and a little bit of 360 BC stuff. The main pull in getting one is because they're supposed to be very quiet, certainly compared with my Pro, which is increasingly sounding like a Hoover, but also for next gen proofing, seeing as MS have stated that all Series X games will be playable on XB1-era hardware (correct me if I'm wrong). It's almost inevitable that I'm going to get a PS5, although probably not at launch (unless Bloodborne 2 is a launch game, or something), so having an XB1X with some next-gen games on it would tide me over until I can afford to go 'proper' next gen. There's also Gamepass, which will potentially save me money in the long run as I can use it to play games that I'd otherwise buy for 'free'. What does the rllmuk hive mind think? I'm probably better off getting through my current pile before I buy anything new, aren't I?
  5. Is the base game of King of Cards exactly the same as the original and Plague, except now you're the golden King character, and there's a card game?
  6. It really is brilliant. Where the eff is Silksong, though?
  7. I lasted about 15 hours on Xenoblade before the urge to batter the protagonist's face in every time he said the same fucking thing over and over got the better of me. FFXII is the correct answer.
  8. The Ringed City DLC is fantastic. I finished it for the first time last year. Stick with it! The main game is brilliant as well, of course.
  9. What about if I want to take the dock to connect it to the TV at the apartment I'm staying in - can I use the same USB-C charger or is it better to use the proper PSU?
  10. Taking my Switch on holiday - can I use any USB-C charger or do I have to use the one that came with the console?
  11. Am I right in thinking that Dead Cells has become easier to complete following a patch? I enjoyed it when I played it but it was difficult to the point of tedium, given the rougelike restarting with every run.
  12. This came out today and is picking up 9s and 10s like they're going out of fashion. Currently sitting at 91 on Metacritic with a 9/10 from IGN. Given with how scarily addicted I got to SMM2 for the first few weeks after it came out, I'm almost afraid to buy it. I still don't really understand how it works, though. Are there different templates depending on the genre of game you want to create, or do you have to make everything from scratch? I predict an Edge 10.
  13. I abandoned it after about 20 hours. The battles are fun, it repetitive, but all the shite in between was looooooong, and boring. I'd recommend picking up a retail copy so you can sell it on if you discover it's not your bag.
  14. Seemingly everyone goes through this experience with this game (see my posts above), but if you stick with it then it is rewarding and extremely satisfying when you do eventually pull it off. It sounds unhelpful, but it really does just come down to practice - each boss or stage ultimately has a finite number of moves or enemy placements and it's just up to you whether or not you want to put the hours in to learn them. I'd say, overall, it's the hardest game I've ever completed. Good luck!
  15. Is there a way to access that data about how many hours played and so on throughout the year, as opposed to just at the end? Presumably there must be a clock keeping track of everything somewhere.
