    DMC5 is completely excellent. It takes a while to reveal its brilliance; mostly because there's a fuckton going on and it can seem overwhelming. But look on your first playthrough as training for the main event and skip all the cutscenes without hesitation and you'll be golden.

    Cadence of Hyrule

    I wasn't really a fan of Necrodancer at all despite it looking like being very much My Kind of Thing. Day 1 for this though, obvs.
  3. Pedro, Katana Zero and Cuphead all in relative quick succession on top of all the other shit coming up leaves me with no choice but to leave my family in order to find the time to play it all. I hope you're fucking satisfied, Videogames.

    Devil May Cry 5

    Finished this tonight; good God it just gets better and better. And then, after it finishes and you start again, it bloody gets better still. Also incredibly rare in being a game that I think could do with being a bit longer. Cutscenes all need skipping, mind.

    Devil May Cry 5

    Yeah, I agree. It's all nonsense and doesn't really add anything. I found the Bayonettas to be exactly the same: improved by skipping the fuck on.

    Devil May Cry 5

    Incredibly, I think I'm going to end up holding fire on starting Sekiro in order to have another couple of run throughs of this. I've been pretty lukewarm on it previously; partly because it can feel like you're learning to play about forty different videogames all at once; but now I'm starting to feel more confident, the urge to master* this bastard is growing strong. *become moderately less shit.

    The Glacial Ennui of Single Player AAA Games

    I played Assassin's Creed Syndicate (my first AC game) and Spider-Man last year and although I enjoyed them both I pretty much feel like I've had my fill of that type of game for a good couple of years. Tangentially, I find the motivation to, say, play Anthem and then play The Division 2 a month later totally incompatible with the inside of my brain. I'm sure someone will be around in a minute to tell me how different they both are but are they really? C'mon. Now if you excuse me, I'm just going to match button inputs to musical beats for the millionth, billionth time.
  8. Finally, finally recorded a win for the weekend event on what would be my absolute last attempt. Reckon I've had eight second place finishes over 30 games since Friday. Currently feel like I could put my shorts on and run a marathon.

    Devil May Cry 5

    I'm broadly enjoying the game, but yeah, I'm also finding dodging difficult to get my fingers round. I'm wondering if it's less important than it is in Bayonetta and I should just concentrate on crowd control..? Seems to make sense in the V sections anyway, where you can be pretty far from the action a lot of the time!
  10. Sorry! Didn't notice I was asked that question! I was actually referring to Apex Legends and Tetris 99: two games released this year with no build-up at all.
  11. Not to mention that two of the most zeitgeist-y games of this year so far arrived fully formed, with absolutely no prior announcement at all.

    How long have you spent gaming this week?

    I thought I was going to come in here and be all depressed at how much more gaming time you all get than I do, but it turns out I do alright. I get about an hour and a half each night; a little more when B is out actually bust-a-moving with her dance crew. Also tend to play a bit with the children at the weekend. This week I reckon it was roughly... 1 hour Super Mario Party 1 hour Thunderforce IV 1 hour Dariusburst Chronicle Saviour 2 hours Tetris Effect 2 hours Apex Legends 3 hours Tetris 99 5 hours Wargroove Currently I like to unwind between games of Tetris by playing another, different version of Tetris.

    Monthly Release Dates - March 2019

    Devil May Cry, Sekiro and Yoshi for me in what looks set to be a ridiculous month. I could probably do with holding back on at least one of them but I'm stupid and impatient. And in the case of Yoshi, I suspect there's a chance we could all do with something bright and cheery to distract us on March 29th.
  14. The Tropes thread was around in 2012 but the MeToo thread didn't turn up until 2017, therefore I conclude nobody outside of Discussion cared about misogyny prior to then. Shameful.
  15. I'm still really enjoying this but I can understand why having an hours worth of progress blow up in your face might be unappealing to some. I actually think Into The Breach was pretty similar in that regard and certainly more unforgiving; 'a go' could end in complete failure with a single miscalculated move. No single fuck up seems to do it in Wargroove with a loss creeping up more gradually. Admittedly ITB did have the reset move when you did a proper whoopsie. I guess it's the difference in game structure between those that have a run and those that have a more structured campaign, but the actual time that's 'wasted' when you lose between the two really isn't all that different.
