    Dead Cells

    Only played a few minutes before I go to sleep, but yep, pretty sweet so far. One thing I thought was really cool is that one of the menu options is you can change the appearance of the food in game. Could be as simple as you’re veggie or vegan and you would rather not everything be meat, but there’s also some silly options like “Castlevaniaesque” and “monster”. In related and weird news, IGN (or their freelancer) appear to have stolen an indie guy’s video review script. Apparently IGN hav taken down their review while they investigate.

    Best Song Ever Written

    The accordion sounding thing is the harmonium which his brother plays. Supposedly they weren’t very happy with the two Western albums they made, too edited and stripped down. The usual style is very different - very long songs, almost like jams where some bits are written in advance but largely arranged on the fly based on hand gestures and little nods. This is more like the usual style: His brother (to his left on harmonium) has arguably the more beautiful voice, but I’ve not heard many singers with the same power and technical ability that Nusrat had.

    Crackdown 3

    This looks like good, dumb fun. Outdated, but a fun romp. MGS looks dull as ditchwater. Nothing I’ve seen of it being played looks appealing in any way, whatsoever.

    Best Song Ever Written

    The song I’ve listened to more than any in my life, I would say. The closest I can find to a perfect song, the only downside is it could go on longer. It’s actually Nusrat and his brother singing with some Western musicians. His brother is on harmonium and he has the most beautiful part in it, where the chords change and it gets me every time.

    Crackdown 3

    Tetris 99

    aka Tetris Battle Royale. 100 Tetris pieces fall out of a plane..... Actually it's 99 players and it's not quite what I expected from the trailer. What I thought it was going to be was everyone puts down a different piece, but this is 99 people all playing at once and everyone fires garbage at a different person (random, I assume) until that 99 player base gets whittled down to 1. I got 27 out of 99 on my first match, so that's an acceptable first try. Get in a lobby with the Japanese Tetris masters and you'll soon be boned though. Completely free to download for Online subs, no extra purchases as yet, just another Online sub incentive.

    Crackdown 3

    Gerstmann has reviewed it - https://www.giantbomb.com/reviews/crackdown-3-review/1900-790/ Tagline - “Just go play Crackdown 1 again.” Ouch.

    Apex Legends

    Yeah we did well all things considered. The match with 3 of us all the way through we played well but made some errors of judgement right at the end.

    A Song A Day

    Been kicking this idea in my head for a week or so, wasn't sure to do it this way or a more convoluted way. * Each person can only post one song per day, but anyone else can post in the same day (not just one song, full stop, a day). * You must give a mini review to the song posted before yours. Anyone want to take part? Would be cool to see how long this can last before it runs out of steam. Youtube and/or Spotify is probably best I would imagine. <object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value=" name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src=" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

    Tetris 99

    Just finished 7th. Can't see me ever finishing much higher than that, the speed at that point is too much for my old eyes and brain. Not sure whether it's a good strategy or not, but I set the attacking to go against people who were attacking you, so every time someone throws something your way, you throw a little bit to everyone who attacked you, once you have stuff to throw.

    Super Mario Maker 2

    June this year too. Looks like they’ve done some good work for using it without a touchscreen.

    Deadly Premonition

    As you're a fellow Lynch fan, stick through the jank and wallow in the Lynchian madness that will follow.

    Review embargo is tomorrow afternoon.
  23. Looks like Three Fields are finally making the Burnout game we hoped they would do. Pretty much Burnout in everything but name.

    The Activision thread

    linky Who knows if this is all a joke, but I doubt it. If I was working at Activision I'd be polishing up my CV right now, but the recession isn't the best time to go looking for a new job, I guess, so he's got people by the balls. Still, what a cock.
