    Monster Boy And The Cursed Kingdom

    I calmed down a bit and finished it tonight because I saw how close I was to completion. It's a shame it brings in two needless fetch quests at the end because it feels a bit long to me as it is and neither is fun enough to feel worthwhile. Collectables should be an optional thing to make progress easier, not a requirement. The final boss is pretty fun too! Which I don't feel about many games. Good, but as a full price title not good enough to recommend. Solid 6 or 7 material.

    Monster Boy And The Cursed Kingdom

    I was enjoying this - not to the raving extent that others are - but it's pretty good. It's no Hollow Knight but then it's no Mummy Demastered either. Then this happened:

    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    The Switch version has a rewind feature which negates that, thankfully. I still really enjoy it after all these years.

    Imported this from Amazon for my Christmas and oh man it's just immediately lovely isn't it?

    Apologies! Shame it is no more, but given I got into it late and haven't really listened to podcasts in a very long time the dozens of episodes that are there should get me through Picross S2 without too much trouble.

    Grim Fandango Remastered just dropped to £3.44, go go go.

    Help me out here, I've been trying to think of this podcast for days. One-on-one format with an English host and a notable guest, usually a developer, discussing their formative gaming experiences. I'm sure Tim Shaefer did one and the only other thing I can remember that might help is that the host had a habit of saying "because it's important to have a consistent media presence" or some such when reciting the list of social networks the cast was available on. It's driving me slightly nuts.

    Aye, it was the only non-retro cast I could tolerate. Shame.

    Whatever happened to Idle Thumbs, is it dead now?
  11. Nice, thanks! (I like the joycon sticks! I've been using them constantly for Neo Geo stuff and the Mega Drive collection games)

    Cool! That was my "free" game I got under the US account I was forced to set up to download some DLC a while back, I' accumulated about a dollar in gold points so just took the best-looking thing.
  13. Graphics aside, is the recent Switch release a good way to play these games now? I have some eShop credit burning a virtual hole in my virtual pocket and aside from a dabble with the Spectrum version in the early 90s I don't think I've played them.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    For all my moans about the problems this game still has months after launch for us peasants on non-X models the treasure hunt idea is fantastic. So much more fun than barn finds, which I always liked despite the FH4 ones being a bit easy.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Sometimes it takes several minutes to load at first, sometimes it crashes, sometimes it freezes, the club names for other players still don't show up, it quite often pauses for 30+ seconds while innocuously moving around UI screens, the random "hitching" while driving around that was introduced in FH3 and never patched. It's a bit of a mess for a Forza game all told.
