  1. That never goes away unfortunately. I think a lot of people found that to be one of the big flaws in the game.
  2. The forum would probably benefit from a "Reviews of games released in 20XX - links in first post" thread. Would be a bit of a bastard to maintain, but pretty useful/interesting.
  3. Maybe Sony want to avoid the usual "[Company X] won E3" bullshit. Instead they can get full attention on PS5 when they want. Is there really a need for E3 anymore? I can see Nintendo not really bothering in years to come.

    Top 10 game of the decade.
  5. I think as soon as I moved around in that beautiful rock solid 60 fps environment I had a smile on my face.
  6. Depending on how the scoring works, The Witness is doing really well for game of the decade. Seems to pop up in the majority of lists. The lack of Cuphead is distressing me though.
  7. I thought this was excellent. A very solid 8/10 game. Absolutely beautiful too. You can keep your 12 terraflops for all I care - I'll have some more of this Switch magic! Barring the slightly wonky controls, it was a joy to play. I actually thought there was very little fat and it took me 18 hours! I didn't even really mind the polterkitty stuff. I agree with @b00dles - my only major complaint is that some of the ideas weren't developed enough. I'd have preferred fewer floors with more to each. The lack of development of the paranormal productions floor was criminal! @grindmouse IMO the floors get more interesting from that point onwards both in terms of puzzles and aesthetically. But yeah, gameplay wise you've pretty much seen it. The major issue I had with the controls is that you couldn't turn off the face buttons. I'd have preferred to use just bumpers but my stupid brain couldn't unlearn the flashlight and sucker face buttons. This got me in a pickle when precise aiming was required. And the vertical gyro seemed a bit hit and miss both handheld and with pro controller. I also agree with others on the money - totally pointless. I ended up with 40K unspent I think!
  8. I think I died once on the sewer boss, but once the controls clicked it was great fun. Come on, it really wasn't that hard - just point in the opposite direction to where you wanted to go!
  9. This game is just pure fun. Am I the only person to actually enjoy B2 so far? I thought that was one of the best floors so far! Yeah the controls can be annoying, but this is just pure Nintendo gold for the most part.
  10. Gaming can be a ridiculously cheap hobby if you play it right. The only new game I bought at retail this year was Sekiro. I played it for 70 hours and sold it for about £15 less than I bought it.
  11. Game of the Year A1. Slay the Spire "Completely out of nowhere, a hideously addictive deck building strategy game takes #1." A2. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice "Sekiro was everything I'd hoped for, but it was just a bit too hard in places. Like the other From games I've played it was absolutely thrilling at times, but was overly long and outstayed its welcome" A3. Cuphead (Switch) "Should be #1 really, but given this is a port I feel it should really fall behind those newer games. A tremendous achievement and a true labour of love. I loved (almost) every minute." A4. RE2 "I've never played the original but enjoyed this a lot. Incredible sense of atmosphere and pleasingly short. Very much looking forward to 3 now. Remake of 4 with the evolution of this engine and next gen graphics please." A5. Luigi's Mansion 3 "Outrageously charming throughout. I enjoyed it pretty much from start to finish." Biggest Disappointment of the Year (game, hardware, or anything else) Z1. No Pikmin 4 news Z2. Link's Awakening frame rate issues. Seriously, what the fuck Nintendo? Just lock it in at 30/60 like you always used to. Z3. Z4. Z5. Sound Design of the Year S1. Sekiro S2. RE2 S3. Visual Design of the Year V1. Luigi's Mansion 3 V2. Sekiro V3. RE2 Writing of the Year W1. W2. W3. Gaming Format (System) of the Year F1. Switch Publisher or Developer of the Year P1. Best Supported Game (released pre 2019) of the Year B1. Gran Turismo Sport Your game of the year that didn't come out this year (basically what is your favourite game you played this year that came out in 2018 or earlier) X1. Super Smash Bros Ultimate Best game character of the year C1. Guardian Ape (Sekiro) C2. Sculptor (Sekiro) C3. And the big one: Game of the Decade D1. Bloodborne "A flawed masterpiece. It's a year since I've completed it and I've thought about it continually and longed to be back in that beautiful world. I loved almost all my time with this game, but like the other From games I've played, it was too long, and in places too opaque in its systems. But it is unlike any other experience I've had in gaming and it's one I'll return to for sure. More thoughts here:" D2. Hollow Knight "Dripping in atmosphere from start to finish. Such an incredible effort from a tiny team. The new holder of the Metroidvania crown" D3. The Last of Us "I've never really been one for story in games, but this really gripped me and held my attention throughout. An absolutely incredible achievement and a watershed moment in the progression of storytelling in games." D4. Nex Machina "A perfect mix of fast paced action gameplay, and what felt like puzzle solving at times. As my skills improved so did my ability to spot solutions to what initially seem like impossible situations. It gave an amazing sense of achievement as your combo and score quickly improved. And an incredible sense of flow once you got in the zone. I'm not sure I've ever been so addicted to a game before." D5. Cuphead "Had the odd insane difficulty spike, but I'm not sure I've played a more all round beautiful creation. Wonderful mix of gameplay, visual and audio design." D6. The Witness "It's not going to be just about doing line puzzles I thought. There will be some deep hidden meaning I thought. Maybe there was, but I didn't pick up on it. But it was the most sublime puzzle game I've ever played. Perfectly realised in a beautiful interconnected world." D7. Splatoon "The reinvention of the online shooter. Trust Nintendo to not only tear up the rulebook, but also get it so right first time. The paint/cover mechanic is just so incredibly clever." D8. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild "I didn't really get the whole GOAT praise for this. It was really good, but it had massive flaws which must be corrected in future attempts. Still, an utterly sublime world and the new marker for true open world RPGs." D9. Slay the Spire "Having only finished the first character once, I've barely scratched the surface with this. I had to take a break for my own health. Absolute crack gaming. Ridiculously well balanced strategy game." D10. Pikmin 3 "Mission mode, where you had an insanely hard objective to complete in a tight time limit, offered up some of the best gaming of the decade. Perfect controls with Wii pointer and touchpad/map. Nintendo on its A game." Honourable mentions: Dark Souls, Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario 3D Land, Zelda Link Between Worlds, Dirt Rally, SOMA, Smash Bros Ultimate.
  12. And in contrast to @therearerules, I think I've finally given up on Dark Souls again. I'm probably 75% of the way through. My current open routes seem to be New Londo Ruins, which is an awful run from firelink, to what I believe is Four Kings boss, and Tomb of Giants, with another long run from middle of catacombs. Everything since first arriving at Anor Londo has been pretty weak. First half of the game was fantastic but it's felt like a grind since O&S (which was a great boss). I really wish I loved this game as much as others do, but even the combat is boring me now. It's no Bloodborne.
  13. Christmas gaming is Switch gaming. Currently alternating between: Luigi's Mansion 3 - how on earth do they make games look this stunning. Lumines Remastered - never played this before so I'm pretty terrible at it but I'm feeling pretty hooked already. Rogue Legacy - I'd heard good things about this and it was about £3 in the sale. After an hour it seems the hardest game I've ever played! Quite like it though. The grind is strong with this one. And if that doesn't keep me busy, more Slay the Spire.
  14. Ok fair enough. What about that painting, or how to get firelink Shrine relit? Or how about accessing the dlc:
