  1. I could do any evening this week apart from Saturday.
  2. Aww. I'm not sure how I feel about going to sleep on a Sunday with a head free of horrific trauma. But yes, I hope everything's okay. See you all next week hopefully.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    Hmm, surprisingly I just really enjoyed the intro missions. Anyway, after choosing my appearance I accidentally skipped past something about my callsign. It's set to my gamertag now, but was that an option to change it? If so is there a way to change it in game?

    What games did you complete? 2019 Edition

    Resident Evil 2 (Remake) Completed is a strong word, but I've played through Claire A and Leon B. I'll go back at some point to get through everything else. Anyway, this was fantastic. I loved the PS1 Resi games, and as good as Resi 4 and 7 were I think I've been missing a classic survival horror experience. This really did feel like a modern take on that style of game, managing to be surprisingly faithful to the original while feeling completely current at the same time. It was also pretty scary and incredibly tense, although I found it had less power over me the more I learnt its systems. That didn't make it any less fun though. Previously:

    You're thinking of Baldur's Gate: Dark Aliance I think.

    Red Read Redemption 2 I had no interest in this for quite a while. As much as I enjoyed the original, I bounced off GTAV quite hard and just didn't have faith that Rockstar could deliver a decent story. Add to that what looked like a pretty by the numbers open world game, along with an insane price tag and I figured it could wait. After hearing people rave about it in podcasts and end of year lists however I felt I had to give it a fair shot, and some well timed Xbox credit deals and rewards brought the price down to a more manageable level. I'm so glad I did. I was maybe right to be wary about the structure and mechanics, which are pretty dull when viewed in isolation. It's also yet another case where the implied freedom of an open world is squandered in overly restrictive mission design. However, none of this seemed to matter when experienced alongside the wonderful story and characters, and that by the numbers open world was so well realised that it was a joy just to exist in. It felt like a real place, and I found myself treating it like that instead of viewing it as a big playground. It's not perfect of course. Combat remained a little awkward and clunky no matter how much I played, and clearly the game would have been improved with a little more variety in the mission design, but taken as a whole it was definitely something special.

  7. I think someone's screwed up the description for the game on the website, making it look like it's just a trial: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/p/shadow-of-the-tomb-raider/brvk4w7rvcxr?activetab=pivot:overviewtab I'm guessing SE are planning to release a free trial version of the game at some point, but this is definitely the full game as far as I can see. The description certainly isn't Game Pass specific, and £54.99 would make for a very expensive free trial.

    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    New games are discounted every Thursday, but that's not the same as a coordinated sale. You might as well say there's a Steam sale every week.

    I didn't see it as clumsiness:

    Satisfye - Switch Gaming Grip

    Yeah, docking is a non-issue. It's really quick and easy to slide the grip on and off.
  11. I've got the beholder statue marked down but not the monkey. I vaguely recall handling it though so I can mark it down if no-one else does.

    Satisfye - Switch Gaming Grip

    I didn't get the case, and didn't need to pay import tax. I'll probably pick up the case at some point though.

    Resident Evil 2 Remake - no spoilers pls

    I never had to use a single blue herb in Claire A, which was surprising. I didn't know about the armour thing though. As for ammo, I was taking out most monsters I ran into but didn't start to run low until fairly late into the game. I always found I had just enough to get by after that though, to the point where I was finishing off the last boss with a pistol.

    Satisfye - Switch Gaming Grip

    Definitely, although it does add a bit of weight. It's quite a clever, asymetric design that positions your right thumb more naturally over the right stick. It's more like holding a big controller than, well, a Switch.
