    Astro Bot - PSVR - Game of the year 2018. No question.

    I think I had a religious experience playing this. Couldn't stop saying 'Holy fucking shit', 'Jesus fucking Christ' and 'Oh my fucking God' throughout. I pity anyone who dies without playing this first.

    I was £40 for 200gb, so that seems expensive - though it was on an Amazon deal. Anyway, I doubt it's overkill depending on how many games you buy, if they're bigger budget/storage size and how happy you are to delete them for space. Five DOOM sizes worth of capacity doesn't seem like you'd be going overboard to me, but I generally play a ton of games and like to have a wide selection available.

    Overwatch - Busan map live

    I like how Torb wasn't as viable in comp as many other picks before before, so they've essentially nerfed him further while attempting to rework him. Many of the changes sound good on paper, but 5 second overload's too short to take on anything but a slow moving tank or someone you have the drop on, and if it runs out you die. Being able to chuck a turret that's always level 2 and doesn't require building sounds neat, but the build time is three seconds, and if destroyed it's gone for 10. 10 seconds without an essential part of his kit, roughly the same amount of time as a Winston Ult. Oh, and the turret health dropped 50 too so it's even easier to destroy. Then there's the new molten core. Spray it everywhere, deny the enemy about five seconds of free movement, then watch them nimbly glide through the bit you missed in the meantime and carry on with impunity. I genuinely think he's notably worse now unless you're a damn good shot with the shotgun during the small window overload gives you. The fact that the cooldown starts on turrret destruction rather than placement is insane to me. I'm not sure why anyone wouldn't just pick a more reliable DPS at the moment. I'm open to being proven wrong, and it's early days, but man. I don't play it much, but a friend occasionally asks me to team up with him - at this rate it'll be down to Soldier and Brigitte. I liked playing Torb as an easy, casual zone defence pick when I was feeling lazy, but now... eh.

    PlayStation Plus for November - Announced already!

    I envy you and your fresh pair of eyes. Be sure to post your thoughts in the Yakuza thread! Yep. But for the average playstation plus user who's never heard of Yakuza, playing Zero's likely to get them into checking out the series. I think Kiwami could be a speed bump by comparison.

    Hates games. Absolutely hates them.

    THIS. Now that I have everyone's attention, it should be noted that Kiwami is substantially inferior to Zero. IF you go into Kiwami first there's a good chance you'll wander off, wondering what all the fuss is about. Go into Zero first and you'll have a new favourite game for life, excitedly squealing in glee every time you try to describe it to others. Really, they should have thrown in Zero and exposed people to what Yakuza's really all about.* *Pocket Circuit.
  7. Probably more smaller titles to come, but these are the headers. Edit: Aha! Full list found. Friday the 13th: The Game (PS4) Laser League (PS4) Knowledge is Power (PS Plus bonus – PlayLink) Master Reboot (PS3) The Bridge (PS3, PS4, PS Vita) Rocketbirds 2: Evolution (PS Vita, PS4) 2064: Read Only Memories (PS Vita, PS4)
  8. Shrug and move on, personally. Achievements and Trophies are a system with the potential to gently usher players towards new discoveries, but usually squandered by developers who enjoy slapping in a bunch of absurdly trite joy-and-life sapping activities.

    Streets of Rage IV

    Blaze is awesome. Always loved the character.
  10. Still waiting for Last Bronx to show up in one of these titles (not available on current consoles even as classic releases), but these ain't bad at all.

    Dead or Alive 6 - Early 2019

    Honestly, I dunno. I've no doubt that the core members of the VF team are all scattered to the winds, but I'd be happy for them to get a bunch of plucky young programmers together and get to work on the series regardless. It's staggering that VF5's something like 12 years old at this point. It still looks great and plays sublimely.

    I'd fucking kill for VF6 at this point. God Dammit.

    Dead or Alive 6 - Early 2019

    The marketing in Japan - and in fact on Twitter via TK's accounts - repeatedly shoves the younger characters down your throat and largely ignores characters that are either male, caucasian or over the age of 20. It escalated during Last Round to a point I wasn't comfortable - that thumbnail you mentioned as being pretty dubious? They've been trying to work those two into becoming the face of the series (see: Doa X3, a game specifically designed for perving on the characters, has them front and centre) , one of whom is a bona-fide idiot/ditzy as hell, and the other could easily pass as a twelve year old from her in game model. If you're casually playing vs you could miss the overall direction leaning this way, but follow the series on any sort of promotional media and it's quite plain to see unless this is a gigantic U-turn - which I'm certainly not convinced it is given the female choices in the roster so far.

    Dead or Alive 6 - Early 2019

    Rsdio: 2 was great, but so far for 6 there's still no sign of Christie (Doa 3), Tina (all the mainstream games to date), Lisa (Doa 4), Mila (Doa 5), Rachel and Momiji (Doa 5 Ultimate), and what do all these characters have in common? That's right, they actually look (and occasionally act) like adults. Cutesy moe bullshit's just not my scene, and the series has been getting stuffed more and more with it as the characters I like and enjoy using for their fighting styles are slowly shunted aside. At least Jann Lee's still in it, otherwise I'd have no previous mains left.

    I'm still waiting for any of the characters I like to appear in it. Not liking this 'stuff it full of irritating children' approach they've been taking recently.
