    I'm sort of struggling with this a bit after three or four hours. I'm just not really gelling with the world. Am I likely to suddenly turn a corner? Everyone with an opinion I respect seems to love this so I'm a bit huffy it's not clicking
  2. If it's abundantly obvious that the game wants me to go in one direction, I will exhaustively explore the opposite first.

    I find the inclusion of the New Horizons DLC oddly confusing. I can only assume they're doing it to sell the sub to a more modern audience, but it just feels really untidy.

    I started on Switch this evening. Not played it on any other format before and I must admit to finding the controls and interface a little frustrating. I'm sure it'll be fine but it's not completely right.
  5. I'm going to go for Guardians of the Galaxy to be 'suprisingly alright, actually'.
  6. Yep, I've given up looking at it this evening.
  7. It's a bit of a relief to read this. I've always found his style pretty irritating but he seems to be universally loved. Pleased he's got his fans though. He's certainly a bit different.
  8. What an brilliantly dreadful name for a videogame. Totally love it.
  9. Noticed the sub option on there earlier this week and one of the articles behind the paywall was on the excellent The Ringer podcast '60 Songs The Explain the 90s'. Rather than encourage me to pay up, it just pissed me off a bit. Made me realise how difficult a tightrope it must be the balance this stuff so you don't alienate existing readers.
  10. Yeah, great stuff from Simon Slash Parkin. Some fantastic stories!
  11. Finished this tonight and after not being all that bothered by the original, I thought Part II was a genuine masterpiece. A smart, engaging and brutal story combined with truly extraordinary combat that always seemed to find a way to suprise me or push me into improvising. I was totally blown away by it.
  12. Must be the irresistible pull of...
  13. I agree with you, Popo. Seemed certain that Castle would smash this one but it all started to go a bit pear-shaped for me from Action RPG onwards. Really loved this episode. Particularly after what I found to be a rather dry episode on immersive sims. Sometimes the guests feel a bit like they're getting in the way of Sam and Matthew chatting away like mates, which is where a lot of the fun comes from. When they started totting up the multiplayer games they had Also; N64; what a fucking machine. You could easily make another decent mini with the stuff they passed up on.
  14. Apologies for being the super-unimaginative, re-release enabling fanboy but I would absolutely love them to announce the rumoured Wind Waker/Twilight Princess HD collection for Switch.
  15. I'm not sure 'normally works fine' is the zinger you think it is.
