    XCOM 2 - War of the Chosen

    It's worth playing through the base game first, without the Alien Hunters or Shen's Last Gift DLC packs or WotC. But get the Deluxe Edition (includes the minor DLC packs) if you think there's any chance you'll play through it more than once, since it's only a couple of quid extra. The Collection includes all the DLC and WotC, but is £25. Last time I played WotC it was still performing really badly on a base PS4. I don't know if it's been patched since, or if it's better on a Pro (if you've got one), but I wouldn't bother at this stage. You could easily pick it up on its own for the difference in a future sale. TL;DR get the Deluxe pack but play without the DLC switched on first time (or Alien Hunters at least, which makes the game harder).

    Some of the early bosses are among the toughest, at least if you don't count the harder to find optional ones and the later chalice dungeons. But you're also probably just getting better at it.

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    My strategy: Keep going until you get sick of doing the early phases over and over, then watch a video guide to save time working out the rest of it.

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    I decided last night that I needed to beat the final boss. Played for over an hour and had the first 2 phases consistently down, but kep getting done on the 3rd. So I watched a video of someone else doing it then went back this morning. After about half an hour I did it. There. Screw you. Sekiro.

    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    Hmm. Either the person playing it in the video has no idea how to play, or it just isn't very good.

    What happened to that horse? Life was tough in those days, when you could just die suddenly at any moment.

    It does look like an interesting idea. It's nice that it does something different. I just can't see myself ever wanting to actually buy one.

    A couple of glitches I remembered to capture. They seemed funny at the time...

    Anyway, I also wrote the Time Extend in this issue. Invisible Inc is one of my favourite games in recent years, so hopefully it'll prod a few people to give it a(nother) go.

    Edge #333 | Playdate

    I reviewed it for Wireframe and was quite critical of it. I think the battle system is smart and it's all very polished, but it gets very repetitive and the exploration elements outside the actual card battling are really quite tedious. That said, there have been some other very positive reviews, so I guess I'm the outlier here. I'm just surprised Edge thought it was *that* good given what to me seemed like obvious flaws. As I say, I'm just interested to read what they actually wrote.

    Interested to read the SWQ review - can't believe they've gone that high with it.
  12. My review of this is in the new Wireframe: https://wireframe.raspberrypi.org/issues/14

    It's one of the great things about MGS V. It's regularly funny, and usually in ways that aren't scripted, just things coming together with perfect timing. And it is sometimes hard to capture the moments, because the wider context is often important. You had to be there.

    Playdate-A new handheld console thingy

    It needs a Resident Evil game based entirely around crank puzzles. But yeah, it would take a lot to convince me I should get a new handheld device for this sort of thing. I'm intrigued by the delivery model though, with games coming in 'seasons'. Be interesting to see how that goes.
  15. It was optional. And it was one of the best bits. But the sequel had loads more of those sorts of platform challenges all the way through the game.
