    Some nice acid tinged Syd Barret-esque scuzz rock from Ty Segall and White Fence.

    Antstream - It's Netflix for Games!

    Yeah streaming works very well. PS Now lets you stream PS4 games which are totally stable with no noticeable drop in quality. They perform perfectly in other words, but there is still perceptible lag no matter how good it is.
  4. I'll be starting a new game with this update. NMS isn't perfect, by a long chalk, but there's still nothing else that does what it does.
  5. They improved that in the big update a year ago but I know what you mean, you still couldn't fly underneath arched structures and formations, for example, so hopefully it's much better with this new version.

    Gonna be a bit hard playing on the train on your mobile when you lose reception.

    That Loleatta Holloway "I need someone" vocal sample is stunning, it's otherwise Prodigy by numbers which is not a bad thing.

    Nintendo eShop

    I found it difficult and challenging at first but never boring.

    Nintendo eShop

    Hollow Knight is the best game on the eshop right now excluding only top tier Nintendo games. And It's only £10.99.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Ironically it's a lot like Dark Souls in that you can make the game easier for yourself, in Dark Souls by levelling up your character and your weapons. I like that style of play. Don't force set difficulty levels, offer everyone the same experience but let them choose how they want to play. There is no intended way of playing BOTW, it's upto each player individually. You said that you were lazy and spammed meals for health regen, but I don't think that's particularly lazy as you had to source and cook the ingredients up knowing which recipes to use. That takes time and effort too and is just as legitimate as going in hardcore, never using any buffs or upgrades etc. The fact that you're going through it again using a different strategy speaks volumes to the flexibility the game offers. I never felt I over used buffs, but I didn't hold back either when I wanted to use them.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    It doesn't really give you 'infinite health' though, it offers you the choice of replenishing your heart containers, but if you only have 3 then you'll still be weak against tougher enemies. The other point worth noting is that you can't just build up food supplies and meals in no time, you have to learn recipes and collect ingredients, locate a cooking pot and so on.

    Or you could complete lots of shrines and then increase your health and stamina, again making combat easier. Or you could choose to ignore the different outfits just relying on certain buffs you get from cooking to protect you from the elements, which actually makes the game harder. It's all about choice. Why should someone who isn't that confident in combat not be allowed to prepare for battle by mastering the cooking and potions instead? So I don't think it's flawed, which is to suggest it's broken in some way. In fact a lot of the fun for me was trying to push things as far as I could trying to break its systems. I couldn't because they're robust as hell, but it's fun trying. The beauty of the game is that it's one big physics and chemistry set for you to just do what you feel like. It's constantly challenging you to try different things and more often than not they work.
