    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    I haven't finished yet, but I feel this is probably going to be a classic. Enjoyed every moment of the 20 or so hours so far.

    The Staircase (contains verdict spoilers)

    One thing I didn't understand from the case was why the blood continued to be on the staircase well into the trial. Why was it not cleaned up? Was that actually the house Peterson was staying in during the trial? That seemed so weird but maybe I missed something. I felt he probably did it. I keep coming back to the amount of blood in the stairwell and the lacerations and I just can't reconcile that with a fall. Seems so implausible. I'd even say the owl theory is more plausible than a fall theory.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    I'm not saying I want it to become dark souls or anything. I just found the cooking had a negative impact on the combat particularly. Maybe I'm a very lazy gamer, but I just took the approach of not caring too much about perfecting the combat because there was so much tolerance in the health regeneration. That seemed a shame to me. Yeah I could have avoided the cooking, like I'm doing in my second play through, but I was just playing the game how it was intended to be played. Anyway, the game is otherwise extremely good and I enjoyed it very much. 9/10.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    It's a very difficult problem to solve. I'm not saying it's easy. However BOTW is pretty unique in giving you, effectively, infinite health from an early stage. I would like to see something like the original bottles mechanic, so you can only hold a limited number. Perhaps cooking pots can be carried and used only a few times before breaking.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    I dunno. I feel like the developers got this bit wrong. I feel you shouldn't need to create your own rules to make the game a challenge. The world feels dangerous in the initial few hours and I liked that you had to find the shrines to gain hearts, to go further into the world and take on more difficult enemies. The cooking negates the point of that system too and it does so very early on. I would not be surprised at all to see cooking vastly refined in the next game.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    I felt the cooking ultimately led to a very easy game because you can consume meals that supply vast numbers of hearts, pretty much without limit. You can do this endlessly and mid-battle. It therefore acts against the subtleties of the combat system. You don't need to learn how to fight and you don't need to learn how to defeat the bosses. You can toil through by regenerating health using the cooked foods. Personally I think cooking should have been limited to the temporary ability buffs (the elixirs) and they should have left health regen to dropped hearts from enemies, as in the previous games. That's how I'm playing my second playthrough and it seems a lot better (no cooking for hearts).

    No it isn't. You can complete the whole game without cooking.

    Cooking is the worst thing in the game and the major flaw in BOTW's system.

    @partious @Stanshall for a shmup with a good levelling/grind mechanic, check out Sky Force Reloaded. Great game.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Amazing World Cup. Fantastic performance from England and totally overachieved. 20 minutes away from the final is pretty ridiculous for this new squad. 90 and 96 have felt like very distant memories in recent times and this is the first time since then I've felt really proud of our team.

    Unless it was like, um, 47.3 and 47.2?
