    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    I was having a bit of trouble with Lost Kin and yes you’re right; contrary to what I said previously it really did help. A combination of quick focus, grubsong and spore really helped me get in enough heals while fending off the floating pieces of crap that come at you. Putting together the right charms for the right situation is a very delicate but rewarding art.

    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    For some reason when I try to download the demo for Valkyria Chronicles 4 it straight up doesn’t happen. Grabbed the Taiko no Tatsujin demo and it slipped down my internet pipe like a greased up pig, has anyone else has this issue?

    Goodbye Games TM (and Gamesmaster)

    And indeed the Gamesmaster himself. Touch wood, Dominic Diamond has many years of life ahead of him! Dom became the host of the breakfast show on XFM Scotland for a while many years ago. I remember once the other hosts teased him about having slummed it presenting juvenile video games tv in his early career, and to his credit he defended the medium and Gamesmaster specifically with articulation and insight. I’ve always had him marked as a good egg.

    Goodbye Games TM (and Gamesmaster)

    Very surprised to hear that Gamesmaster was still going. I seem to recall it died back when the show was cancelled and was reintroduced some time later with a different style? Could be wrong, this was a long time ago. Very fond memories of a bygone era.

    Shenmue 1&2

    Really love John Linneman’s Shenmue passion. He’s like the unofficial Shenmue chronicler.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    I was on my way back to one of the shops with about 2,000 geo in my wallet. I must have walked past at least three newly reachable areas and each time my sense of curiosity got the better of me as I started exploring. I only came to my senses when becoming almost overwhelmed each time. “What are you doing?!”, I thought to myself, before retreating. “You can come back and explore these places later”, I had to remind myself. But I didn’t want to explore them later. I wanted to explore them right now. How does this game make otherwise sane men crazy? Anyway, I nevertheless managed to get in a good streak yesterday, gaining a second nail upgrade and, by the end of the day, met the requirement for a third, so must go back and get that. The upgrades to the nail, or the speed boosts granted by certain charms really are incremental though, aren’t they? I was thinking the quick focus charm would transform me into a lean mean healin’ machine, but I could barely tell the difference. Does equipping the shaman charm boost the effect?

    Is this very hard? It looks very hard.

    Shenmue 1&2

    Finally found the time this weekend to finish the first one. Really relished in the sentimental final scene where Ryo walks through town as he’s leaving. Managed to beat Chai on only the second attempt which was a bit of a surprise considering how shit I am at the fighting part of these games. Looking forward to getting stuck into part two shortly.

    The trick seems to be posting a complaint in here about being unable to do it; you will be able to do it immediately upon your next attempt.

    An Essay For Edge And Games Tm

    Amazingly most customers who visit the Four Quarters seem to be in their mid to late twenties. That probably says more about the demographic of the area than anything though, when nearby deep-dive Canavans is filled with the same, but I digress.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    When the disk is in your console and you’ve installed the huge day one patch, you mean.
