  1. Moving house and coming to the conclusion that I had way too much stuff. I've ~halved the size of my collection, and could do with another round of cutting. I don't miss any of it. Plus the money raised was very welcome.
  2. Ditching instruction manuals and having to wait patiently for the game to install and download a pile of patches killed it for me. You quickly realised the disk was nothing more than a licence key. I’ve gone all digital on the Xbox but still buy physical for the PS4 and Switch because I don’t like the account systems used.
  3. 24/06 - Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night (PS4) - A Castlevania in all but name, and it's been way too long since the last one. In many ways this feels a little like a best of the earlier games, with gaining abilities by obtaining shards from enemies coming straight out of Aria of Sorrow, and a lot of the enemies being very similar in design. There's arguably a bigger focus on boss battles here than in prior games, and what it does excel at is in giving you the freedom and choice to play the game in the way that suits you best. However, it's a bit too long; at times it's incredibly obtuse as to how to progress and with all the different ideas they've thrown into the pot it can seem a little unfocused. It's no Symphony of the Night, but still excellent. Previously:
  4. Unless they release another update a day after release (or later today) and still call it the day 1 patch, which is what they did on the PS4.
  5. Yeah. This confused me too. I’ve played through it on a PS4 Pro and there were a couple sections plagued with slowdown - where the game really struggled.
  6. Yeah, physical releases are a few days later than digital for some reason.
  7. Nah. It’s pretty long (maybe a bit too long?). I’m 16 hours in and at the final boss with 99% of the map uncovered. However, that doesn’t record the time I spent dieing. Or the hour I spent against one of the optional bosses before realising I didn’t need to beat him to progress. Getting 100% completion of all items, equipment etc would require hours of grinding.
  8. The first thing I do is go into the options and change the y-axis to inverted.
  9. Yeah, I think you're correct. That room did make me think of Symphony of the Night, but couldn't quite put my finger on what made it so.
  10. Licenced stuff might become collectible, because as soon as the licence expires you can no longer buy it digitally. Godzilla despite apparently being awful is pretty expensive on the PS4 for this reason. I expect Sega’s Yakuza Fist of the North Star to end up being fairly expensive too for this reason (and being an awesome game).
  11. I don’t think I’d ever have worked out how to get to the final section of the game without resorting to a guide.
