  1. One of the best videos I've ever watched and I didn't even play Wow!
  2. Interesting - a bullet hell 3rd person rouguelite! Looks right up my alley but alas, I don't have a PS5. I will probably pick up when I do get around to purchasing one - it gives me Risk of Rain 2 vibes.
  3. Rogue is available on steam (Link). If you've ever wondered what inspired the slew of "Roguelight" and "Roguelike" indie games that fill the pages of Steam then this is it and available for only a couple of quid. It's still enjoyable to play today and has a lot of depth but don't expect to complete it, ever. I didn't even realise there was a win-state until the internet, wrongly believing the object of the game was to collect as much gold as possible before a troll would inevitably kill you. If the lack of graphics put you off then I can heartily recommend the Atari ST version which is very pretty. It's easy to pick up and run on an emulator.
  4. There's a major bug on day 3 but hopefully this will be patched in the next day or so. I started a second playthrough whilst I was waiting and spec'd into intimidation and physical violence - very satisfying!
  5. Disco Elysium comes out today on PS4 (around 6pm UK time). I bookmarked this when it first came out on PC in 2019 but alas, I did not have the specs at the time to run it. From what I gather you are a cop waking up from a hangover with a murder to solve. It's meant to have one of the deepest RPG systems where every action you take can impact the story and your character in meaningful ways and it's for this promise that I will probably buy later tonight. Here's the Steam blurb for those interested:
  6. RIP Marvin. One of my favourite boxers of all time. This is a fantastic video covering his boxing career:
  7. If you have a VR headset, Dirt Rally is exceptional. I can only imagine how much better it would be with a wheel set up though!
  8. There's a really good interview with Steve Bannon on the PBS frontline youtube channel where he goes into great depth on how he helped cultivate the image of Trump as a popularist (sic - Trump's own definition). This is obviously not an endorsement of Bannon or Trump but it's rare to have such a candid first-hand interview with someone who had such a decisive hand in a president's election so definitely worth watching if you are interested.
  9. Just completed "Return of the Obra Dinn". The second commercial release from the maker of Papers Please, Lucas Pope. It's a detective game where you have to deduce what happened to the crew of an empty ship after it unexpectedly returns 5 years after being lost at sea. It's one of the best games I've ever played and an astonishing feat from the solo developer.
  10. Charles Woodson should be elected into the Hall of Fame tomorrow. As great a career he had in college and in the NFL, I'll always think of this first whenever I hear his name:
  11. Dead Cells is amazing - Just picked it up myself. It's a joy to play because of the controls and once the game has it's hooks into you, you start refining your playstyle and paying attention to your builds. The skill ceiling is extremely high but it's so fun from your first run onwards. I've done the first "round" by cheesing my way through the game and the final boss with turrets. Instead of moving on (there are 6 difficulty levels) I'm going to go back and refine my parrying and dodging.
  12. Amazon are definitely the ones you need to go after. According to the Sale of Goods act, you are entitled to a refund or replacement Martin Lewis has a decent guide https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/reclaim/consumer-rights-refunds-exchange/
  13. This one was a must for me - A spaceship dog fighting game with full VR support selling for £30 at launch. All I needed to know after hearing about it was that it was functional! The modes are pretty barebones, offering only a dogfighting and a grand scale fleet battle at the moment, but there are four different spaceships for each faction which are customisable by unlocking different components through grinding . The gameplay though is excellent and in VR it's even better. For the first time I'm craning my neck to see Tie fighters which have flown past my cockpit and once a few salvos have been fired you do become totally immersed. I think it's worth checking out for anyone with a compatible VR headset, maybe even waiting until xmas when it will likely be on sale. I think those without that aren't particularly into spaceship dogfighting can probably give this a miss for now.
  14. I honestly think Madden peaked with 2004. I think it has got incrementally worse since.
