  1. Clementine released a couple of weeks ago and is stable, over 3,000 accounts created (with 500 created within the first few seconds of registration being opened) and has a decent player base.
  2. Still playing a fair amount of this, I suspect its relentless positivity in the face of the current real world challenges we're all going through have something to do with that. Finally broken through the 9 barrier on Extreme - have bullied my way through three of them now (Disappearance, Teo, Romeo and Cinderella) and also Grumpy Waltz at 9.5. Have definitely reached the part of the game where the scales have tipped from "I could perfect this on a good run" to "I will never be able to achieve this".
  3. 21. A Kishoutenketsu in the Countryside From the giant itch.io bundle. This is a lovely, minimal puzzle game that tells you nothing and expects you to figure it out. There's four distinct regions that feature familiar puzzle game mechanics and a gorgeous, super low-res four-colour palette. I felt a lot like an idiot when I couldn't find the fourth area but it turns out I just hadn't been paying enough attention. https://remi-tootata.itch.io/a-kishoutenketsu-in-the-countryside
  4. FOUR new DLC packs out today. "BRING IT ON" is brilliant. The Nyan Cat music is not.
  5. 20. What The Golf? (100% + Sporty Sports) Two months since I completed a game eh? Turns out that playing things that have no discernable end (PSO2! Project Diva Mega Mix!) will do that to you. Anyway: Now that World's End Club is finally out I've jumped on the Apple Arcade free trial for that and What The Golf. World's End Club has been given an hour or two but I've been utterly hooked on this instead - it's funny, charming, inventive and even though many of the stages are nothing more than an excuse for a gag I was laughing at it throughout (though having to try and explain to
  6. Are the LEDs working? I had similar very recently (SL, SR and LEDs stopped working on one Joycon) and repaired it with a £5 part. There's a ribbon cable that connects the SL/SR/LED panel to the rest of the controller, and that had folded and snapped. Just needed to replace that part (they're available on eBay and Amazon) and it's working a charm again.
  7. Another "yeah pretty good" for The Great Pretender here - it's fun but needs those little shreds of backstory.
  8. Just started a trial of this for World End Club and What The Golf. What else is considered essential on the service? I have Sayonara Wild Hearts on Switch already.
  9. I need to fix the drift on two of my Joycons and don't want to be without them for the time it takes to wait for Nintendo to do it. Can anyone recommend a seller for the kits? There's tons of them on eBay and it's difficult to know where to start. I also need an SL/SR button thing because one of those has stopped working too.
  10. Wow, what the fuck is going on with some of these prices. Retro stuff has gone through the roof, again.

    Speedruns

    Yeah I hear you. I'm never going to be good enough to challenge the best and most dedicated runners, but had fun earlier in the year speedrunning, of all things, a clicker. The hardest part is capturing console gameplay for obtaining proof, that restricts me to PC only without significant investment.
  12. I've put a few hours into this after it was reduced to about nine quid. I'm getting somewhere with it - halfway through the third set of dungeons - and I like the combo system, which encourages you to slow down a little rather than barrel into every encounter at top speed. As far as getting better gear, using the NPCs, etc, not a fucking clue what I'm doing!
  13. Hi do you want to play Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Six Stars Xtend?
  14. Aggretsuko S3 is out and it's really good. Delightfully stupid as always.
  15. The trailer looks very gimmicky in places, but I'm still probably buying this. Hopefully it's a giant love letter to both franchises - PPT is great but it's lacking some really basic stuff (want to do first to ten? No) and the amount of Puyo games there have been previously is bananas, so there's plenty of back catalogue to mine.
  16. Will be representing Team Egg later tonight. I've missed you, Splatoon.
  17. The scoring can be very harsh on Miku games...
  18. SLS have put on a very lo-fi team event in the absence of competition, between teams led by Shane O'Neill and Eric Koston. It is brilliant and stupid:
  19. I'm a big fan of the Wild Beer brewery: https://www.wildbeerco.com/ I like weird shit so this is right up my alley. They have a lot of beer in the usual styles, but usually with some kind of twist - their lager has lime and salt, and tastes like a mixture of a lager and a sour, for instance. The really weird shit is where it gets good though - Breakfast of Champignons (sadly no longer brewed) contained mushrooms, Dr. Todd is matured in whisky barrels and has a sour, earthy taste to it, Yokai almost tastes savoury... they've not done anything I've turned my nose up at, t
  20. Outing myself as old man casual gamer, but Glass Masquerade 1 and 2 released on Switch recently at about £12 each. They're now in the current sale for three quid for the pair: https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Nintendo-Switch-download-software/Glass-Masquerade-Double-Pack-1788065.html They're really relaxing jigsaw/stained glass-creation games that fill a similar kind of gap to Picross for me - zero pressure but really satisfying, and three quid for the pair is a nice price (and very similar to the price they've been on Steam for a while).
  21. Mega Mix with the first season pass is currently £35 in the eShop sale.
  22. ...there were only about 23 participants Good fun though and the PuyoGB community seem to be a good bunch at first glance. Jonster got a win and a few other top finishes, and the overall standard of play was quite high.
  23. @MikeBeaver Have you signed up for the T99 event? They're looking for someone with your name in the Discord.
