    Oh definitely I would ever buy a game based on reviews as a lot of games that review well aren't for me in the slightest & some that get dragged through the dirt I love. Just like to get an idea from a few places what people are thinking, especially if they are well argued & fairly in depth. Anthem was never one I was going to pick up early as I don't really have the time & it didn't really peak my interest. I do hope it does well for the sake of Bio-ware as I wouldn't want EA to close down another talented developer. I am a bit worried for them at the moment especially with how well Apex Legends has been received even though it is a total different game. I'm sure I'll give Anthem ago at some point when it's cheap or on EA Access.

    His reviews are always like that, like you say even if you don't agree he puts his points across well & details why he thinks that. I did think he maybe compared it to Bio-ware's past work a bit too much but I guess that is what is going to happen when as a company you have built you games around world & story building. He often revisits games a long time later as well to see how they've changed & does re-review. His got another channel Layman Gaming which is a bit more lighthearted with his brother who can be fairly annoying.

    The Hot Topic

    My girlfriend isn't a gamer at all but I have managed to get her into Puyo Puyo Tetris. We often play it especially if we're travelling somewhere together. I'm trying to get her to give Overcooked a go but no success so far.

    I generally like this guy & his review is scathing. Good in depth review & backs up his opinions. I've not played it but at the moment can't see myself picking this up. Will probably wait & invest my time in The Division 2.

    Netflix recommendations

    Currently watching You & it's much better than i was expecting, thought it was going to be a show just for the Mrs to watch. It has a good way of making him not seem like a bad guy so you don't dislike him even though what he is doing is completely fucked up. Just got to half way & intrigued about where it is going. Next up is Russian Doll or The Umbrella Academy, also want to watch Abducted in Plain Sight as tend to enjoy a lot of the real life crime stuff on there.

    Tetris 99

    This is my go to game at the moment when i have a spare 10-15 mins, absolutely love it. I have noticed it is definitely getting harder & games seem to be going on longer as people are getting better at it.

    Cheers for that I didn't have a clue what the badges were or what they did.

    Tetris 99

    First attempt finished 5th, probably will never beat that. Got crazy quick at the end. I can see this being very addictive.

    Picked up Final Fantasy IX & Undertale on the Switch this morning. Also downloaded Tetris 99 to see what that is all about.

    The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

    Was so pleased to wake up to this. Was my first Zelda & instantly loved it. This looks great & I'm sure will bring back many memories.

    The Division 2.

    Looks like it gives you access to the free stuff 7 days early from what I can tell plus some free activities & the usual crap. "The Division 2 year one season pass comes with exclusive activities, 7-days early access to all free DLCs for The Division 2, exclusive customization items, and more. "

    TV Shows

    Season 2 of Hannibal was just stunning for me, the way it all comes together is some of the best TV I've ever watched. Was a shame that they rushed Season 3 & it was then cancelled, show never really found it's place on NBC & probably would have done better on a different network.

    Couple of payday purchases & then my girlfriend surprised me with Mario for a present.

    Resident Evil 2

    @ThreeFour It's like when I played Silent Hill 2 all those years ago, that one I'd only play when my mate was round & he'd sit there watching 😂

    Resident Evil 2

    I'm making very slow progress mainly because I'm just constantly shitting myself, there's a reason why I don't play many survival horror games 😂 The atmosphere generated by the game is unbelievable, last night in the dark with the surround cranked up was just something I'm not experienced for a while. I am loving it in a strange way, will definitely be plowing on through today.

    Resident Evil 2

    Haven't played much Resident Evil over the years but this has started off brilliantly. Although I'm only about a hour in & not sure my heart can cope with this. Genuinely such a pussy with these sort of games.

    Watched Mary Queen of Scots & thoroughly enjoyed it, great acting & set pieces which i story I wasn't too familiar with but found interesting. Always a good sign when a 2 hour film doesn't feel that long. All in all well worth a watch & a good debut for director Josie Rourke. Also re-watched LOTR: The Fellowship of the Ring, had completely forgot how wonderful this film is. The story telling, world building & pacing for me is just perfect & it's pretty much everything I wanted from LOTR. The opening 30 mins (especially in the extended version) are just magical & have me investing in hobbits & world instantly. For me it is the best of the trilogy & I never grow tired of watching it. Watching it again makes me wonder how they made such a bad job of The Hobbit movies with Peter Jackson still at the helm. They seemed to forget everything that made the originals work so well to stretch the story & world & make it a CGI mess.

    Marvel's Spider-Man

    Picked up the DLC today as it's on sale so gives me a good excuse to get back into this. Found the combat took quite a long time to click, to the point where I nearly stopped playing but once it did I really enjoyed it.

    Random News

    Not a really surprise is it!! They must have looked at it & found they can't milk enough money out of it with Micro Transactions & Lootboxes so cancelled it. Hoping that they don't give the Star Wars licence to one publisher once this deal is over, so we might get some decent games.

    Yep I might actually use it if they were to add those.
