Delay of Advance Wars - albeit for understandable reasons 2. Lack of Ghost Valley 1 in any of the new Mario Kart 8 Deluxe tracks 3. Switch Sports - just didn't replicate the joy of Wii Sports in the way I'd hoped it would Best visuals 1. Pentiment (video game) 2. Elden Ring 3. Immortality (video game) Best audio 1. Elden Ring 2.

  2. I had to pause my paid sub for a while and just tried to reactivate it. Not sure what’s going on but it looks like it’s been cancelled until I go into my profile where it only offers the option for me to gift a sub. I’ll have another go tomorrow and try to figure it out, but thought I’d mention it in case your stats look weird as a result @Nate Dogg III (I’ve tried a few times now) This is also a good time to say again how much I enjoy reading your work - I often save a new email until I’ve time to sit down and read it with a cuppa during a break in the day, and it’s always worth waiting for. EDIT: tried to fix it again after posting this and - typically - it just worked. All sorted!
  3. 🅦🅞🅡🅓🄸🄿🄻🅈 #3 🌟 Length Score: 81% 🚀 Letter Score: 59 I think this could be improved by telling you how many letters the longest word has - give you something to aim for.
  4. Having finished it recently, I’d highly recommend Pentiment for a Christmas game. As for mine, it’s going to be hard to top Obra Dinn from last year. Likely to be Tunic and Sparks of Hope.
  5. I’ve just completed the White Palace. Jeez, that was tough - but so satisfying to get through it in the end. Now up to 105% completion. I should probably move on to something else really. What an excellent game!
  6. You let them I’m tempted to replay this at some point to see how some of the other avenues pan out (and basically be a bit more of an arse to people)
  7. I’ve just finished - what a great game! It’s nearly midnight here so I need to sleep but will post more thoughts tomorrow.
  8. Look forward to hearing your impressions. I have images of using one to take notes at work, but I know I'm just kidding myself and also want to try out a nice big e-ink reader :)
  9. Similar to @bradigor it took me a few attempts to get into this, but today I finally completed it at my fourth attempt. Not sure what made it ‘click’ this time but I’ve really loved it this time and can see why so many people rate it so highly. I only ended with a 90% completion rate but happy to have an excuse to keep playing to try to get that up to 100% before Silksong finally comes out. @CurryKitten - I found the second Hornet fight a similarly tough challenge. I can’t recall now which charms I ended up using, but after repeated fails I remember switching them up to try a different approach and beat her on my next attempt. I’m sure you’ll overcome her before long!
  10. Red Bull on another level by breaching the cost cap…. hard to give them credit when we know they had an unfair advantage (sure, they probably deserve it but it should cast more of a shadow over their year than it probably will)
  11. Thank you to those who recommended Boomerang Fu - I bought it a few days ago and it’s been a big hit. Kids love it, and we had great fun earlier playing teams - kids vs parents (they beat us… I blame annoying stick drift!)
  12. Cool down room was funny as he still hadn’t realised / wasn’t sure. Quite an anticlimactic way to clinch your second WDC (which really should only have been his first….)
  13. I’ve just reached Act IV and am really enjoying this, but completely get your point about missing lengthier puzzles @NexivRed I’ve not played a Monkey Island game since the second one, which I loved along with the first. Some of my happiest early gaming memories are playing the first Monkey Island over a school summer holiday and (in a pre-internet world) trying to figure out some of the more obscure puzzles. I even roped my parents into trying to figure stuff out (they were no help!) What I love about this is being back in this world - remembering things from the first couple of games which I’d forgotten about, and that it still feels like the Monkey Island world of the first couple of games. Sure, I’d like more complex multi-step puzzles and for the game to be longer, but I’m really happy with what is there and enjoying playing through it. I’m a bit apprehensive about how it’s going to end given that it seems to have marred the experience for some, but at the moment can’t see how even a terrible ending would reduce the joy I’ve had playing the rest of the game. Oh, and the music is brilliant - find myself humming bits constantly throughout the day at the moment.
  14. No need to worry about it at all. I have a similar set up and it’s never got confused about save states. It checks each time you open a game - even on quick resume - whether there’s a newer save it needs to load in.
  15. Track looks fine. All on inters EDIT: at least around turn 7! Yesterday seemed to stay wetter for longer in sector 3.
  16. More rain doesn’t look likely at the moment. Always hard to tell in Singapore though!
  17. Rain has stopped. Sweepers out.
  18. Just watched the driver parade - kids (and I!) made posters and Hamilton saw and waved - very cool! Had a few spots of rain, and I can see some big black clouds heading our way….
  19. It’s been lovely and sunny this morning. And now it’s gone very dark with an almighty thunderstorm. Could be an interesting qualifying if this sticks around!
  20. The traffic lights to the left of the first photo is where I took the photo in my previous post. So weird seeing how quickly it’s all come together!
  21. I’m getting v excited about my first live F1 race since 2019 this weekend - first time taking the kids too. It’s been great seeing all the fences going up over the past few weeks - even if colleagues have mocked me for taking photos whenever I’m near a bit of the circuit - and can’t believe it’s finally here!
  22. Thanks. I actually saw the credits last night but interested to know what the game tells you to look out for. Is it If so, I was aware of that but was after more clue as to how/where you can discover that other than randomly going from clip to clip. Overall, I thought the game was excellent though - well worth experiencing.
