    How so? It's a PS3 game.

    Square Enix has a bunch of games half price at the moment. World of Final Fantasy, FFXV Pocket Edition, Romancing Saga 2 and the by all accounts very mediocre Tokyo RPG Factory games. Opted for Romancing Saga 2 myself - looks almost Dragon Questy.

    Yeah, at the time of posting, it's the first game on the page when you launch the eshop. Recent releases.

    This War of Mine is finally on sale in the EU. I love This War of Mine. For anyone who missed it on PC/other consoles, it's a very bleak (but also very moving) 2D survival game where your objective is to forge a desperate existence from the wreckage of an Eastern European city half-destroyed by an ongoing war. During the day you switch between three different characters to perform tasks around your shared dilapidated home, almost Sims-style (think The Sims developed by Andrei Tarkovsky). At night you sneak out to numerous locations around the city to try to loot buildings for much-needed supplies without getting yourself killed. Do you steal the last scraps of food from a starving pensioner's fridge to take home to your dying housemate? Do you risk your life and your housemates' welfare to stop an armed soldier from raping a civilian or do you slink home with your paltry loot and tell yourself there was nothing you could have done? You probably die within the next few days anyway. It is brutal and gut-wrenching and engrossing. There's a new story mode now too which I haven't touched yet (anyone tried it?) with a couple more story campaigns apparently coming out soon. I've been playing it since last night and it appears to be an excellent port so far. Still pretty pricey even with 40% off but that at least brings it in line with the Steam price.
  5. According to this thread on gbatemp if your Switch is on 1.0.0 you can reboot to RCM using software - "no hardware required". The instructions still sound quite complicated to me though - see here. Has anyone done this? Or is anyone able to give any advice about it? I've downloaded the devkitARM files and the reboot_to_rcm software but I'm not sure how to run any of it or get it on my Switch.
  6. So I cracked and watched a video of someone else playing it and I don't know how long it would have taken me to figure out some of these rules and strategies. I'm guessing never? Also I did not realise I was up against stuff like this. He is so unattainably incredible that I have uninstalled the game out of terror. I had no idea. There's something really satisfying about watching him play so perfectly though - check him out.
  7. I don't feel like I'm getting any better at all but I can't stop playing it. It's the same empty, compulsive spiral I fall into when I lose money at poker, what started out as a bit of mindless fun slowly becoming a kind of metaphor for my inability to grapple with even the most basic of activities, a whole day vanishing into a black hole of incomprehension and self-loathing, and above all the paranoid suspicion that others have some kind of advantage of knowledge or experience that meant I was doomed to lose all along. Over Tetris!
  8. Yeah, judging by posts on here and Resetera, a healthy majority of people appear to be managing wins. That, or people who aren't winning aren't posting.
  9. According to my stats I have done seven mini t-spins (and zero big t-spins but whatever). Is that a lot for fifteen hours of playing? I'm guessing not.
  10. In which case why isn't it in the game? In my opinion, Nintendo has put everything you need as a player in the game. I'm not good enough to figure it out on my own, which sucks. For me anyway - great for my opponents!

    Shenmue III - PS4/PC | 2019

    Graphically it's more than lovely enough for my liking now. But if that's the much anticipated big gameplay reveal we were supposed to be getting from MAGIC Monaco, it's very disappointing. All cutscenes and fighting animations, no gameplay. Feels no different from any other trailer we've seen for it so far (other than graphically better, obviously). I'm a little worried that they're so reluctant to show the basic stuff - Ryo wandering around, buying stuff from shops, picking up items, selecting from dialogue trees, button prompts, HUD, whatever. Isn't it supposed to be out in August?
  12. I know it must seem silly and more than a little stubborn, but I hate looking up guides for games and every time I do it I feel like I'm cheating. I've done it before, but it always cheapens my subsequent achievements in the game somewhat, whether it's an Elite: Dangerous Youtube tutorial or a clue to a Myst puzzle or even looking up an elemental weakness for a Monster Hunter quest. Call it irrational, but I feel like I should be able to figure out everything about a game with the tools the game gives me and if I'm not good enough to do that I probably shouldn't be playing it.
  13. How do you know how many people are attacking you at once? Sometimes it's almost constant so I don't think it's just one or two people. I'm not aware of anything onscreen that shows who is attacking me or why. I think that's the main thing I find so unsatisfying about it (other than the total lack of an explanation of how Tetris works) - how utterly impersonal it all is. Competitive multiplayer is fun for me when you or a team are pitted against a specific opponent whose strategies, weaknesses etc you can identify and then attempt to counter. Tetris 99 feels more like 99 player Mario Kart. One game you can be 4th, next you can be 98th. There's no way of pinpointing who played well and who didn't. There's no way of checking someone's profile afterwards to see how your own stats and achievements compare. It's all one huge indecipherable blur.
  14. I have no idea what a T-spin is and I'm not sure I want to.
  15. I'm doing better than I was - came second once - but I still feel like I don't understand a lot of what's going on. Occasionally I'll get almost an entire meter of garbage thrown at me within about five or so seconds of starting, long before it's possible for anyone to have built up that much by playing Tetris the way I understand it. There are other times mid-game where it feels like more than one person is attacking me and I don't understand why. Even when I fend off a huge attack (which you should be rewarded for in some way, in my opinion, as this is a much toucher feat than merely KOing someone who is almost dead anyway and yet you get a badge for that) the attacks often keep coming and coming. Some of my best finishes have come from ignoring absolutely everything and everyone, not touching the right stick, being extremely passive, and then getting smashed out in fifth place or whatever.
