  1. Obviously not, but that doesn't stop this one being particularly bad. It's not like I was expecting a good story from the game, but what's there is both inane and bizarrely vague. The best "story" I've seen in a Sonic game was probably Sonic 3, which got across a few simple beats without any dialogue and without ever getting in the way.
  2. I'm playing Sonic Frontiers at the moment, and while I'm enjoying it I think I can easily see why it could score a 3. I could also see why it could score a 7. It's such a weird mix of good and bad stuff, and sometimes the bad stuff becomes sort of good when it adds a layer of jank to take into account and master. The only thing I think its unequivocally bad so far is the story, which is not only dull but also weirdly vague. I feel like I could skip all the dialogue and lose nothing from the experience.
  3. A full on remake in this style would certainly be cool, if a bit BSG, but probably not really necessary. What this will do though is open the door for more Star Wars in this style, and possibly other styles too now its proven that Star Wars works just fine in other genres.
  4. I mean, he literally posted a link to one a few posts up. I guess if you use your Deck while out and about a lot I can kind of see the point, just like a phone case. Unlike a phone though, it's surely a lot more important to keep the Deck as ergonomic as possible. I'd just make sure the Deck goes back into its carry case when you're not using it.
  5. Speaking as someone who only got into Twin Peaks a decade or so ago, it may still be worth sticking with simply because it's not quite like anything else. Season 1 is basically a 90s soap opera pastiche with an undercurrent of Lynch weirdness. Season 2 continues this for a few episodes, then Lynch sods off for a bit and it turns into, well, a dodgy 90s soap opera before Lynch comes back for a pretty mindblowing ending. I do think it's worth watching the shit episodes, but I don't think you'd lose too much by skipping them. I'm sure there's a watchlist somewhere if you're after the essential ones. Fire Walk With Me is horrific, in a good way. Season 3 (The Return) is probably what you're looking for, and is the point where things go full weird. It's astonishingly good, but won't make any sense whatsoever without the grounding you get from the older seasons and the movie.
  6. On Steam Deck I just set the frame rate to 30 and switched to the Low graphics preset. It's been running will well with those settings.
  7. Soul Reaver needs a full blown remake rather than a simple remaster, I think. I adored that game, but it really hasn't aged well.
  8. I almost gave up on that one early on, but I either adapted to the audio quality as it went on or it may have improved a bit. It was a good podcast in the end, in spite of his audio.
  9. Nope, you can get the Expansion pass and save a whole pound. https://store.steampowered.com/app/355880/The_Witcher_3_Wild_Hunt__Expansion_Pass/ EDIT: Oh sorry, I thought you meant the expansions. The upgraded stuff is free and will apply to any version on PC. This is from the Steam blurb for the standard edition:
  10. As I recall, yes. You get an option at the start to jump straight to either DLC with an appropriately levelled character, so you could start with Hearts of Stone and the then continue to Blood and Wine. I can't remember if your choices in the main game affect the DLC or not though.
  11. It's £6.99 for the GOTY Edition with all the DLC too. I already own the GOG version, but I'm thinking of double dipping just for the Steam Deck.
  12. I really wasn't prepared for just how good this show was. You could rip Star Wars out of it altogether and it would still be amazing, but the fact that it adds so much texture to that universe makes it that much better. Incredible stuff. The finalé was absolutely perfect.
  13. I forgot this was back! Time to spin up an AppleTV sub.
  14. It's more wibbly than that. David's wife Georgia is not only a Doctor's daughter in real life, but also played Tennant's Doctor's "daughter" Jenny in the show. I think that's how they met.
  15. I thought it handled them really well too. Honestly, if you didn't like any of those then probably not, but it's a good show. It gets a lot more Star Trekky after the first couple, and while it's aimed at kids I think there's a lot to enjoy as an adult as well. The characters all get a decent amount of development, and there's some occasional but welcome returning characters from other Trek shows too.
