    I play video games, I buy and listen to music of all sorts, I mess around on an acoustic guitar, I own video capture and editing software, I randomly dance around at any opportunity, spend time out shopping for more music/games/film or seeing folk...the usual, really.

  1. Okay, as much as I rant about P5's issues, it's nice to see it being supported like this. The quality of the extra content looks closer to P4->Golden than, say, P3->FES. (Also if we get tighter dungeon design it could be unmissable - P5's worst offence was its pacing...) E: added Royal trailers to the OP.

  2. Unlocked and beat the secret boss. I recommend looking up the steps to unlock it - they're quite specific - and maybe attempt it late in the game when you can easily jump between unlocked chapters. It's pretty tricky but it's all about learning the sequences. For those already attempting it - one thing that helped me a lot for the final phase (where the screen goes red and the boss' new form appears):

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    Stuff like that's a little weird to me - the thing I love about the better From games is that all of your gameplay options are viable, and discovering a deathblow opportunity for a boss feels rewarding. Furthermore, I assumed that they knew about this opportunity and designed the battle - and the boss' "number of lifebars" - to accommodate that. "If a player can get this first deathblow, good for them, but they'll still need to do all of this other stuff in the rest of the battle." It's why I love the situations where you can take advantage of grappling around the environment, discovering opportunities for early deathblows, and using items/skills for enhanced stealth - it makes the game feel new and unique. In contrast, some of the forced boss encounters feel kind of old-fashioned when none of those options are available.
  4. Just went back for the keys that unlock - you might need to look up locations but they shouldn't take long to get to if you're already familiar with the levels. Oh, and the interrogation at the end of the Mansion Hideout stage needs more love. Groundhog Day

    I would admit anything for music

    More confessions: I have tracks from Shy FX's 2019 album in my library - "Call Me" and "Badboy Business" are great feelgood tunes: I admitted to liking "Got To Keep On" by the Chemical Brothers (even though I've since removed it from my rotation as there are much more substantial tracks on the album - even I eventually found myself skipping past GTKO about one minute in...) In the "Homework" era I never understood the fuss over Daft Punk; a number of tunes had the catchy hook at the start and then a lack of evolution throughout the rest of the track, which I think left me a little cold. They've grown on me since. Back when I had an OG Xbox I think I set up a cassette recorder by my TV to record music by Acumen Nation and Saian Supa Crew that was featured on the soundtrack I'm still listening to Major Lazer.
  6. Yeah, it's hard to compare the two. Both have great presentation and tough-but-fair gameplay, but they're ultimately different experiences. As I said, I already own Cuphead so I never had to make that choice - in short, get hold of both games when funds and free time in your gaming schedule allow you to.

    XIII Remake, Winter 2019

    I never played XIII; I liked the idea and the comic-book stylings suited the cel-shading, but part of me felt like it was just riding the cel-shading craze and that there might not be much of a game behind that presentation. Also I get the feeling that every branch of CEX still has at least one copy of XIII in it somewhere - it's the only explanation I have for it being on my mind from time to time.

    Gaming mondegreens/eggcorns (misheard audio)

    Seems appropriate for this thread: In more lighthearted news, "I never felt like cemented lightbulb" is one of the best mishearings I've come across:

    You're so right hype levels restored.

    inb4 that Sekiro outrage. I’ll wait until the actual issue arrives rather than getting worked up over a number though. (for the record, I’m of the “fun game but not free from criticism” opinion...) Also I had my eye on J&M for a while...

    What’s Your Favourite Daft Punk song?

    o/\o Discovery is still one of my favourites, and that strong start has a lot to do with it.
  13. Not my gifs, just some from googling. I would like to stream some gameplay soon though, and I wrote words on @Badger's website here EDIT: btw, I’m in the fortunate position of already owning Cuphead on Steam - this and that are both brilliant games and I would totally understand people having to make a hard choice! Just keep this game in mind when you're not juggling too many other games.
  14. I mentioned it in the Best New Music thread but didn't really talk about it at length because the wave of hot takes on how bad it is would have killed my hype instantly. Kidding aside, I had mixed feelings on the last few albums and I didn't know if the Chems had lost their touch or if I was just interested in different tunes these days... however, there's a lot of stuff on No Geography I like. Gravity Drops and The Universe Sent Me are particular standouts for me; they're really nice and chilled, and the back-to-back works well. The title track is also very catchy and has a good build-up, and I went from not caring about MAH to it being one of my favourites; it sounds like it belongs in a Wipeout game or something. Definitely worth a listen.
  15. I saw one ending this morning, but I'm sure other stuff can happen depending on dialogue. The last area I was in really ramped up the difficulty - very long stretches without checkpoints - but you quickly start figuring things out bit by bit until you're able to get through unharmed. Easily GOTY contender material for me, even with Sekiro out there - this just delivers on everything I'd hoped for, and aside from those occasional difficulty spikes it's a pretty good time.
