  1. Finished Leon A last night on normal, C rank though, so plenty of room for improvement. I had about 11 hours on the clock and 40 odd saves. Also died a shit load of times, but I don't know if that affects your ranking. Never really had any point where I was in danger of running out of resources. Came close a couple of times after bosses, but the game seems to compensate by giving you ammo/gunpowder soon after boss fights. By the end I had about two full clips each of shotgun and magnum rounds, and about 150 handgun bullets. The handgun bullets mostly came at the end though, I certainly wasn't stingy in using them through the game. I usually took zombies out, rather than run past them. Really enjoyed it, over all. Exactly what I wanted in an updated RE2. I loved the original, one of my favourite PS1 games. I played it loads, getting s-ranks and unlocking all the stuff. I think it'll take me a while to do the same on this, though. Gonna do Claire B, then Claire A - Leon B on normal before I start trying hardcore. One question regarding the Leon A playthrough: I never found the heart key, so I missed the chief's office, and that section. Did I miss it, or is that bit only in Claire's playthrough?

    Final Fantasy IX

    I'd say 30-40 hours if you're just concentrating on the main story. Add another 10-20 to that if you're doing the various side quests.

    New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe (2019)

    I've unlocked all of the Superstar Road levels now, by finding all of the star coins (I had to look up a few, I'm not too proud to admit). Blimey, bit of a step up in difficulty, aren't they? That big fucking fish fuck can fuck the fuck off. Which is what they should have called that level.

    Nintendo Direct - 13.02 10PM GMT

    Speaking of charming, the Yoshi demo is lovely. I didn't really have much interest, having not played one of the series since Yoshi's Island (which, shock horror, I didn't really get on with), but after playing the demo, I'm definitely getting the game now. Just bloody nice, is what it is.
  6. This is great. I was disappointed that the 3DS version with the option to play 2D was never released outside Japan, so this was a pleasant surprise.

    When it says Yoshi demo available soon after, how soon is soon? It's not there yet. Edit: ah, it's there now. 20 mins after I posted, so that's how soon soon is.

    The Kid Who Would Be King from Joe Cornish

    My wife won a local radio competition to see this early. I was going to go with her until she said it was at 11.30 on Sunday, i.e. while I would be hung over, so bugger that. Anyway, she went with her sister along with her seven-year-old nephew and his mate. Her response was very much meh, but the kids thought it was the best thing they'd ever seen. So Cornish seems to have fulfilled the making a film just for kids brief.

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    Ah well, that'll explain the dolphins. As for the timing thing, to begin with, I was just playing the game without trying to time it, but it sounded kind of messy, so I started consciously trying to time my button presses. But like you say, it sort of auto justifies it (not sure if that's the right term), but it frequently put the sound in one sixteenth beat after I intended it to go, so that disconnect became irritating to me after a while. I think I would prefer it to do the sound exactly when you press it, even if it's not exactly in time. But then I guess it really would sound messy. I dunno, I suppose the key is to not think about it and just let it flow, man.

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    Played the demo of this (in vr) and, yeah, I don't think I'll bother. Unless is super cheap in a sale. Like Thor, I found the visuals difficult to take in because you're concentrating on the game. For instance Darwock says about the dolphins; I didn't notice any dolphins... As for the music, while I liked the timing aspect of it, and did end up trying to time my button presses with the music, there is a slight delay between pressing the button and hearing the audio, so that was an annoyance. And the style and vibe of the music generally wasn't to my taste either. I thought the "we're all connected" one and the rap one were a bit cheesy, kind of the auditory equivalent of one of those Live Laugh Love wall stencils. I did like the takatakatatatakka Indonesian monk one though. That was ace. Oh and the chanting women falafel one made me laugh, which I'm not sure they were going for. If I were to characterise this game as a human, it would be a very earnestly spiritual woman who sells "aura-healing" crystal pendants at the local market. Also it turns out I'm shit at Tetris. Couldn't even finish the journey part of the demo on normal. Had to do it on beginner.

    Having now tried it and finding that it does indeed work, I hereby withdraw my bollocks.

    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    Anyone given Unworthy a try? I quite like the look of it. Although it's kind of funny the way it wears its Souls influence not so much on its sleeve, but on a neon sign which it shoves into your face. Is it any good though?
