I loved the new area here, it's gorgeous compared to the war zone/swamp a lot of the game takes place in.

    Dauntless

    I played this for the first time last night with my Overwatch crew. It was fun and easy to get into, if a little janky in places. Some of the user interface feels a little bit more fiddly than it should. It definitely feels designed for controllers, the mouse and keyboard controls are awkward. When I switched to an Xbox pad, it felt so much better. We ran into a few glitches, but nothing serious or enough to ruin the fun: - One of our people didn't get the dialog option needed to finish a quest and trigger the next one while they were in the party . - One member of the party couldn't leave the hunt complete screens by pressing X, and had to wait for the timer to count down to return to the hub. This happened to two different people after different hunts. - Changing your character appearance in the hub area removed the skin colour from you and every other character in the area, leaving you looking at weird white/grey dolls until you start a hunt or restart the game. - We saw a couple of people sliding around the town because their characters were not animating when they move. They also didn't have heads.
  3. A Cuphead series currently in production for Netflix https://gematsu.com/2019/07/netflix-announces-the-cuphead-show-original-series If it's anything like the game, I'll get about ⅔ of the way through and not be able to finish it.
  4. I got distracted with contracts and side quests recently, but I've pretty much done everything I'm interested in now (just horse races, fistfighting and treasure hunts left, I don't care about completing those). It's time to crack on with the Blood And Wine main storyline, I think I'm pretty close to finishing it now. It's been fantastic, Toussaint is bloody gorgeous. I'm going to miss it when it's all over.
  5. I played it about a week ago. It was only about 45 minutes long, but it's a charming experience and sometimes nice to have a game that can be completed in a sitting. Because of that short runtime, it does benefit from being on sale, even though the original price isn't that high.
  6. Bastion wasn't as universally well received on here as the rest of the web seemed to at the time. A lot of people liked it, but didn't love it.

The gameplay is pretty simplistic, but I liked the presentation and sense of humour. Worth the couple of quid I paid for it.
  9. The Streets of Rage run from a couple of days ago was a lot of fun:
  10. Hitman 2's current elusive target is in a night-time version of the Marrakesh map. They appear to have done some work on details and lighting, it looks fantastic.
  11. Epic has extended this support-a-creator thing from Fortnite to all games on their store. https://www.epicgames.com/fortnite/en-US/news/support-a-creator-faq You can't implement a shopping cart, but you can add a feature for me to nominate an "influencer" to get a portion of the money I spent on a game? Fuck off Epic.

    Void Bastards

    I've been playing a little bit this week, I'm close to getting the second item I need to make the citizenship card. I love the style and the humour, it's got a lot of personality. I've had a good run with a character whose perk is that they don't make the Tourists (those little blob things) explode when you get close. It's been a godsend, as those fuckers are everywhere in the early game.
  13. FWIW, CD Project fired the idiotic social media person last year. He tried to claim he didn't know the offensive context of the memes he was sharing, which at the minimum makes him bad at his job, but he was clearly one of those dickhead "Gamer" people. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-12-05-troubling-gog-tweets-a-fired-cd-projekt-employee-and-the-spectre-of-gamergate
  14. I started playing this with the £1 first month of Game Pass for PC. It's perfect for that (although the Windows 10 store is still a rubbish experience). I'm enjoying it a lot right now. It's some light, brightly coloured, arcadey fun. It's got a bunch of open world trappings, I hope it doesn't get drawn out too long.
  15. The Blood and Wine expansion for Witcher 3 has an achievement called David and Golyat, for killing Golyat the giant with a crossbow bolt to the eye. I hadn't read any of the achievements in the game in advance, so killing him and that achievement popping up was cool.
  16. Witcher 3 has sold an estimated 20 Million copies to date.

    Valfaris

    I played a bit of this at EGX 2018. I think the rep at the stall was one of the devs, the metal album cover visuals and soundtrack and are a big part of what they're going for. It seems to be designed to be quite challenging, but I also didn't get to grips with the controls during my time with the demo was was pressing the wrong buttons a lot. I died at a spot they said had been stopping people all weekend - a combination of acid pits and constantly respawning enemies which ran at you and knocked you off platforms. Hopefully they managed to smooth out spikes like that, because it had been fun up to then.

    El Hijo

    Looks pretty, and a good premise for a stealth game.
  19. I started Blood and Wine last week and I really like the new area. The architecture in towns is really bright and colourful, and the surrounding countryside makes a nice change from swamps. I enjoyed Hearts of Stone, but heard this is the better of the two expansions, so I'm really looking forward to getting further. For @radiofloyd, there's an entire new Gwent faction to collect and play in a tournament.
  20. So, PC Game Pass is available now, although typically not easy to find on Microsoft's store. The £1 for the first month, £3.99 thereafter.
  21. Love that new Wonder Woman poster. Also love that it's annoying the angry internet men.
  22. I loved The Crow soundtrack.
  23. Don't spoil the advertising, people. I'm being facetious, but this hobby makes me laugh occasionally. It's such consumerist, corporate apologist nonsense it does give me pause sometimes, to wonder what the fuck I'm doing.
  24. The last thing I pre-ordered/pre-purchased was Hitman 2 on Steam. Generally I won't pre-order games, but with this one I got the edition with the upcoming DLC included for the price of the standard edition, and got to play a few days early. I knew I was gambling a bit but having 150 hours in the previous one, I was hopeful I knew what I'd get, as long as they didn't fuck it up. It paid off that time. I haven't pre-ordered anything since, though. Before that, the last time was probably something multiplayer in the early years of X360. Tangential: but physical or digital pre-order extras and limited edition shit put me off more than they entice me to buy. If a game advertises a version with a season pass, it usually says "wait a year until it's all out" to me more than "buy this version".
