    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    Levels 9 and 10 are really very fast if you're not used to the game, definitely not what I would call a beginner mode for first time players or people who are rusty, as the game claims. Most of the beginner mode is pitched below that but any levels that hit 9 or 10 at any point I would struggle - I think I had to replay the seagull and final level about 15 times to progress. Personally I'd cap beginner at about level 8 if you truly want a welcoming mode that still carries at least some risk of failure.

    PlayStation 5

    A console which can push 11.2 teraflops is not coming at the end of 2019 for a mass market price....

    I had to repeat loads of levels even on beginner, which peaks at Level 10. Think they've pitched the difficulty of it a little too high. I have been getting a lot better at the game since I started though.

    Yes, the 1989 skin disappeared once the ritual was over unfortunately. Annoying because it's one of the best in the game; hopefully they'll just unlock it permanently at some point but I guess they're still trying to incentivise people returning each weekend. I wonder if they have many other skins they're saving for each ritual.

    Holy shit at the 1989 skin once it gets going

    Yeah I think the Jazz/City one was my favourite, but I really liked the dolphins one too. And the fireworks. Probably more and more will come to mind when I replay them. Not quite finished journey mode yet though, I got too tired and kept falling the seagull one where the three phases are speeds 8, 9 and 10. Just not focused enough right now to deal with that.

    Cheers. Considering how much I struggle when the speed goes anywhere above 9 it's probably a bit too advanced for me to worry about right now!

    What the hell is a T-Spin? Looked in the stats menu and it said I hadn't done any

    Your Very Best Gaming Year

    2011 hasn't been mentioned much. Arkham City, Dark Souls, Skyrim and Portal 2 all had a good old scrap for GOTY. Skyward Sword was also released. I'd have to go with the usual suspects of 1998, 2007 and 2017 probably though. Looking forward to 2027/28 judging by that pattern.

    What I find particularly impressive is that the small play area size (I haven't zoomed the camera in, assuming the experience has been optimised for the default view) and the visual effects don't detract from the actual game at all. I remember people questioning what the point of the fancy visuals are if you're staring at the play area all the time, but somehow the play area and the effects all sit perfectly in your field of view, the visuals enhancing the music and the overall experience but never detracting from the core game. What a balancing act to pull off. Again, to go back to Lumines, it's like how each skin in that game can completely transform how each section of the journey feels, even though you're very rarely directly looking at the background or the pattern on the skin itself.

    The fade is the best haircut, along with a beard around length 3-4. Anything longer looks trampy. @Harrisown's Arthur looks like a disgusting hobo.

    Played the first six skins this morning and I'm dying to get home from work to play it now. It's literally exactly what you would expect if you put Tetris, Lumines and Rez in a blender, which means it's amazing obviously.

    Didn't realise the stages were divided up into sets of three in journey mode, and that each set restarts at speed level 1. That will certainly make it easier for people like me to see them all. I assume there will still be some way to go through all the skins in one go without breaks?

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    What Pob says is true, but there are also tons of strangers quests and I feel quite confident saying that they're doled out at periodic intervals as you progress the main story. I keep picking new ones up in Rhodes, even though I've already been there tons of times before. Some are better than others, but I wouldn't say they're short in number. If you're after sidequests on the level of The Witcher 3 or a Bethesda game then you'll probably be disappointed, but they work as fairly brief palette cleansers. Two have them in particular have been quite surreal and wouldn't really fit tonally with the main story, but as a random 10 minute diversion they're refreshing.
