    Recommend me 'git gud' games!

    Ikaruga There is basically one way to play it properly and to do so requires only that you git gud. It's entirely predictable and repeatable and comprehensible, it's just very very hard to execute consistently. I spent weeks on the first stage in the pursuit of S Rank. I've never felt my brain sharpening and tightening and refreshing and exhausting itself to such a degree as with this. You will come to know every tiny section inside out and you will eventually be moving and firing and not firing and switching polarity without conscious thought. Is it a transferable skill? I now believe I can do anything I put my mind to. Except get S+ Rank.

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    After an hour on this on the telly, I'm speechless. This is absolutely stunning, overwhelming. I can't wait to show it to everyone I know. Wow. I was blown away by Forza Horizon 4 on the One X this week but this is on another level. Unbelievable.

    Diablo III - Eternal Collection out on Switch

    Apologies if I've missed this but can anyone explain how I can play online with randos, please? I'm really enjoying this but would love to up the chaos with some MP shenanigans. I literally can't see any option to join or host a game currently.

    Forza expansion looks amazing, remaining GP games are pretty thin.

    The beat on this KH3 trailer music is sweet.

    Ys VIII - Lacrimosa of Dana

    Only in tone. It's very light and repetitive, and also pretty ugly and a bit boring. I liked it for a few hours but it fell off pretty quickly for me.

    Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

    Good point, and that's really surprising, though. It's certainly iconic.

    Isn't the Sutherland/Hayter thing justified by you know what?

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    I'm still just playing through the first year but holy fuck this is a beautiful game. Preaching to the converted of course and not saying anything new but wow. I went back to FH3 which I thought was staggering and even with the X enhancement, it feels some way behind 4. I wonder whether it's the drab weather and lighting which looks so fucking amazing. When I first got FM7, I was blown away by the overcast lighting, it's low-key insanely good, so subtle and real and gorgeous. This seems to build on that. Ragging through Edinburgh at night, and then bursting out of the other side onto some snowy fields, I was absolutely gobsmacked. I heard the game doesn't really start til the first year is complete so I'm going to be powering through it tonight. Nearly hit Spring. I got this console for RDR2, and that's amazing, but this is the one for me right now. 4K telly incoming too, can't wait.
