    I'm just about enjoying it so far. Not great though. Somehow I find that its episodes simultaneously move too quickly and too slowly. Characters bounce around locations with seemingly little regard for how disparate they are. One minute at the event site. Next in the medical holding facility then somewhere else entirely. But, with all that moving around they don't really 'do' anything. There's not much mystery or investigation. In the X-Files or Fringe I felt there was a combination of the mystery of the week investigation and time for it to breath with the characters. I think it p
  2. I wonder if there’s a danger that Skyward Sword could dent BOTW2’s hype. People want more BOTW but get a something very different, Probably not so long as they do call the next one BOTW 2 rather than Zelda Something New.
  3. Profit margins at this point are insane on that. It makes me a little disappointed we don't see lots of free DLC for something like Mario Kart. Couple of new tracks a year. They sell enough new copies to cover that for their whole player base. But then obviously they have other uses for this cash. New games, new hardware (revisions), swimming and printing GIFs.
  4. And they sold them all at or close to full price!
  5. At a guess it's relatively new compared to many on the list.
  6. Interesting insight into what it costs for Epic to give away a game each week. $11.7 million for the first 9 months. Some big costs like Subnautica, Mutant Year Zero and Batman Arkham. Interesting to see it broken down as number of new EPIC accounts per game and therefore the unit cost of each new account.
  7. It's definitely a bit heavy with 'cut scenes' early on and later if you progress the story quite quickly. They're also very repetitive. Same phrases etc every time you unlock something. And yep, the tutorials not showing updated controls is frustrating. For Illumina balls... They're not a score boosting mechanism directly. Much like fruit or scanning they have an effect on certain species. Sometimes the species will react with a certain pose. Sometimes I feel like it's also in combination with other things but not quite worked it out entirely. You can also use them to light up the
  8. They look great. And what a dinner!
  9. It's a much bigger and better game than I expected. I expected it to be cute and fun but it's utterly engrossing for me. At 12.5 hours I've just finished the story, opened up and played the final course. I've still got about 30 odd Pokémon missing from my Photodex from the number I think are in the game. I could probably have progressed a little faster but I spent some time focusing on challenges on early courses before later on moving to new locales sooner. The former is fun because you get to know courses really intimately whilst the later sees content thrown at you s
  10. Complete anticlimax for Q3. Shame but that’s the way the chips fall sometimes.
  11. Yeah, it just doesn’t really look like any fun. Handling a bit simple, hitting other cars and walls seems to have little impact. And for all the twisty turning overhead tracks it’s also quite boring track wise (accept where it breaks out of the orange track segments). With solid handling and game modes it could work if it has a fabulous track editor and good sharing system. I’ve been watching a lot of Trackmania on twitch recently and feel like this could almost work built like that but with arcadeysmashing racing rather than just time attack.
  12. Well this has kept me up until 1am. The last 3-4hours of play has flown by. Just good relaxing fun. Pleasant tunes, cute animations. Loving it.
  13. Played two runs this morning. Seemed good fun, was grinning playing it. Lots of control options to switch the sticks, move shutter from A to right trigger, motion controls, and lots of sensitivity sliders. Looking forward to getting back to it.
  14. It was discussed a lot how other storage is used and grows. Do. Search online for PS5 other storage and have a read.
  15. Maybe at some point and I’m sure it has/will taken a small chunk from them but we see people telling us that it’s not for them and doesn’t offer them value for the way they play (and others who are basically unaware of its existence/details even on a gaming forum).
