    Since I’m talking about Okami... wonder if someone can answer this. It seems in both Okami and Zelda games (Wind Waker, Breath of the Wild) 100 years is this massive time span... so much so that anything that happened 100 years ago is some kind of ancient legend. Is that a cultural thing that’s lost in translation in these games?

    aye - I played it for a good while on the Wii but something else shiny came along. The switch lets me spend more time on the big games. The forced slow text speed during cut-scenes can be annoying though

    Got Okami for a fiver - my third attempt to do it justice. Pure length of the game has always been a problem but that’s not an issue for me with the switch. It looks lovely but I’d forgotten how long that intro is!

    What are you playing?

    Another game of Hunt for the Ring last night - this time just two of us and played both parts 1 and 2. Excellent game. Still my 2nd favourite hidden movement. I think the game works better as a 2 player as one player controls all the Nazgul and, as a result, has access to all available dice to use as they please, rather than having to negotiate with other Nazgul players. Part 2 is really interesting and we loved it. It's proven to be controversial but thematically it makes perfect sense and it mixes up the gameplay quite a bit. The player doesn't control Frodo, rather the game is set up as Strider picking a route to Rivendell and the player is Gandalf jumping about the map trying to fuck the Nazgul's shite right up. When searching an area, Nazgul can't tell if Gandalf or Frodo or both is in an area. The Gandalf player knows where frodo is so can use Gandalf to cut the Nazgul off. At any point, by spending a token, the Gandalf player can 'reveal himself' in a blinding flash and scatter the Nazgul. This lead to a really tense end game where I managed to work out where Frodo was, and a race between me and Gandalf to get there first. Gandalf got there and blocked my Nazgul and while one got through - it wasn't enough to corrupt Frodo completely and he won the next round. Hugely recommend this game if you're at all a fan of LotR and hidden movement games...

    New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe (2019)

    As 2D platform games go - it's second only to SMW. The level design is absolutely superb. Graphically, yeah - I suppose it's a bit bland. I like the music. But Mario's handling is amazing.

    I’ve got all three of them have only so far been able to play Tortuga which we all thought was excellent.

    Played Hunt for the Ring (part 1) last night. Really enjoyed it. Scratches the same ultra-thematic hidden movement itch that Fury of Dracula does so brilliantly, but without taking 5 hours to play. Considering that it was our very first play and we all suffer a bit from analysis paralysis, we still comfortably finished it within 2 hours. Highly recommended. Probably my go to hidden movement game of choice now unless I've got the time to play Fury of Dracula, which remains the absolute daddy.

    Why are Nintendo fans so annoying?

    Doctor Who

    Well that was actually quite good. A properly threatening and dangerous dalek, not seen since ‘Dalek’
  15. There is no such thing as Metroidvania. There are only games inspired by Metroid. That includes SotN.
