  1. I have a ludicrously short attention span, even for stuff I really like. I noticed the other day that my play time for Just Beats & Shapes (one of my favourite games of this year) is below 10 hours. A game proudly proclaiming a playtime of 100 hours is off-putting, quite frankly. 20 hours is pushing it. How often does anyone actually finish a game and think 'not bad, but could have done with being a bit longer'?

    Oh my! Sphinx is brilliant; very reminiscent of Zelda and one of the most underrated games of the PS2 era for me. Completely bizarre that they've plucked it out of nowhere to stick it on the Switch, of course.

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    That feeling when you start to think that you're playing one of your favourite ever videogames.

    Apologies for the love-in interruption, but whilst this thread is popping, can I strongly recommend that you all play Just Beats & Shapes once you're over this. Easily the most overlooked game of the year and the most Mizuchuchi, not-Mitzuchuci game I've ever played. Get on it.

    Haha, well this has Game of the Year sewn up almost instantly. I've laughed, danced, audibly gasped and welled up within the first hour. At Tetris. I did all that at Tetris.

    Good stuff, thanks @joffocakes although I suspect my work colleagues will be less grateful.

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    Is it the same one in the trailer? If so, I think it's called 'I'm Yours Forever'. I had the same thought and tried to find it on Spotify this morning, but no luck I'm afraid. Can't quite get over how excited I am to play a remake of a thirty year old game spliced with the kind of art you see at a legal highs stand.

    If you fancy something that's a bit like, but not completely, a fighting game I'd highly recommend Mario Tennis Aces. It got a bit of a bad rep at launch because of a couple of character balancing issues, but for my money it's just a fraction below the online top tier two of Splatoon and Mario Kart. Offline single player is a bit shite, mind.
  9. How noisy is this with the drum? I mostly only get to play games when the kids are in bed and if it's anything like Rock Band it'll be out of the question with all the clickerty-clacking.

    Astro Bot - PSVR - Game of the year 2018.

    I fell into Argos this afternoon; money flying out of my pocket onto the counter; and when I stumbled out I found I had a copy of this in my hand. Clumsy clumsy.

    I've had a fault in all three sets of Joy Con controllers I've bought (grey, neon, Splatoon ) and have a scratch on the screen. It's a testament to how good the software has been that I haven't launched the machine out of the window in a rage, quite frankly.
  12. I thought exactly the same. My children are six and eight and have been interested in playing but I'd been reluctant due to the PEGI 16 on the box. Couldn't really figure out what the big deal was until I got to that bit and it suddenly decided to ramp up the harrowing.

    Yoku's Island Express

    I also struggled with the slugs until I realised it has to be a 'fresh' button press. You can't just be holding it down from a previous use of the flipper. You have to flip then suck

    Death Stranding - Kojima at it again

    Can't help but think that those demanding clarification and something concrete are missing the point a bit. I'm absolutely loving not having a fucking clue about this.

    The Arcade Ten

    Interpreting this as they have to be actual machines that live near the sea and eat money. Dance Dance Revolution Galaga Scramble Hang On Time Crisis Crazy Taxi Daytona USA Ridge Racer House of the Dead Ghost Squad Told this story a million times on here but I'll tell it again because it's cute; my grandparents used to have a static caravan in Maldon (no, I don't understand why either). Whenever we used to go down there my auntie would take me to the arcade, but I was so small that on the walk I would drag a milk crate on a bit of rope behind me so I could stand on it to reach the controls. Pretty sure playing Galaga down there is when I fell for videogames. Also, when I was in my teens, my Dad used to have a bit of money and live an hour down the road in that there London. I used to visit for a weekend once a month and he'd want to take me to the theatre or the museums or to an exhibition to make memories. I just wanted to go to the Troc' and watch all the dudes on Dance Dance Revolution. Man, they looked so cool!
