  1. I’m struggling to recall such a comprehensive pile-on. The reviews aren’t even bad. The whole forum has been gripped by some kind of mania. And yet: The views of someone who has actually played it.
  2. Happy to report this is just as good as the first series! Interestingly, the gags Oldman was doing on the bus either didn’t land or went over the audience’s head; I was cackling like a greasy, ageing spymaster.
  3. Interesting @glb, because the concerns I’ve seen have done nothing to temper my appetite. Not one for the System Shock heads perhaps.
  4. It’s not the slam dunk I was hoping for, but the criticisms focus on the lack of new ideas; it’s basically a faithful retread of Dead Space, with some potentially clunky mechanics (bad signposting on enemy attacks). I haven’t played Dead Space since the 360 days, so overexposure to the series is not a problem for me, and doesn’t phase me terribly. It’s got Edge 6 written all over it. I’m not sure that’s a bad thing.
  5. Eastward is available now! That was a pleasant surprise. Also, if Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth is leaving soon I think I'll give it my full attention, it's a really lovely Metroidvania so far.
  6. I'm in the same position, but I played Sonic at EGX for what would in no way constitute an extended play time, but it seemed fine. Balan, which I haven't played, but I did read reviews of, sounded like it was broken and unfinished. You know whoever did the review quietly chuckled to themselves as they uploaded it to the CMS. They knew what they were doing.
  7. Sonic got a 3 but Balan Worderworld got a 5? That's exceedingly harsh.
  8. Definitely. I played both in quick succession this year and they both have their merits. Doing them the right way around is better for the story beats, but the machines you pilot are sufficiently different, with quirky, unique controls, that they stand on their own merits.
  9. How’s the weather up there on your high horse?
  10. You’ve got to assume at this point that any new Mario game is being planned/held back for the Switch successor, and Mario Kart 8 DLC is set to run through to this time next year, so almost certainly not.
  11. Finally! Edit - 45 minutes! No wonder it took him a while.
  12. https://www.metacritic.com/game/switch/front-mission-1st-remake Looking pretty middling. Complaints that it’s too faithful and frustrating - I imagine the quite random way shots connect with the various body parts of the Wanzers is the source of that? I save scummed my way through the SNES original because of it.
