I finished reading the intro and strategy sections of the FFXV guide. I definitely want to play it now. The new WoW expansion comes out tonight though, so....

Is it me, or is Bilge's approach to playing this game a bit weird?
Who the hell reads a guide to try to establish whether they'd like to play a game? I mean, there's a demo.
Is it on the Switch?

Yeah the very least he could do is watch the prerequisite prequel film which is FFXV's version of the Midgar section of VII that the main game leaves out for some reason.

Sean Bean plays the king, perhaps this is a spoiler?

Matter of fact I got my ticket today. Good luck trying to get a hotel room now but worst case scenario I'll be there and back in a day.

tldr; yes.

If the line is not very long could you do a field test of DMCV ?

It would make me a happy dwarf :)

I can't stop playing Okami. I thought it would be a nostalgia purchase, good for the occasional dabble. But i've already cracked the ten hour mark. It's just so good, a real Zelda fix, too - and an almost impossibly good fit for the switch handheld mode. It's been a long time since I played it, so that helps. But, yeah, it's just fabulous.

I really must get around to this...my PS2 copy is still unopened and never got around to the PS3 version either.

I just finished Rise of the Tomb Raider, which I enjoyed even if 4k didn't really add much to the game...just wondering whether to pick up the cheap DLC or move on to grander things (or finish Red Dead: Undead Nightmare)

Horizon 2 got an airing seeing people are playing that again...took me about 25 mins to go through 18 months of Forza Hub rewards I'd accrued...I then did a rinse and repeat on Forza 5 and barely had time to try a race

So really liking Dead Cells I gave Rogue Legacy another shot to see if I would like this more as well. I do like it a bit more, which considering my starting point is not saying a whole lot, and I managed to beat the first boss, but I am still fucking terrible at this game. I’m probably about level 30 or just over and am trying to explore the woods area but must be on my 100th heir or something. Even though the death count part isn’t pissing me off as much it is still playing on my mind how bad I actually am at the game and I really like efficiency in games, which for whatever reason I can not be in this. The biggest kick in the teeth is the fairy chests. Unless the objective is “Defeat all enemies” and the enemies are quite easy, I am never getting those. And it’s things like that which are really annoying.

Having said that, I can appreciate that this is a very smart game with good humour and is fun to play, and I will go back to it some more, I think. But man am I a wash out at this game and even though you do get a little stronger here and there if the last run was good, there’s still a sense of I am the fucking worst at this and I hate games that make me feel that way while I’m already trying really, really hard

Boss no.3 down on Rogue Legacy. Now on to the hardest area of the game and it is kicking the hell out of me. I’ve been watching some Youtubers play this game to try get some tips and see what other people are doing, and, I’m sure I’m just being whiny, but these rooms people get seem a lot easier than the rooms I get. For the most part I watch them play and am like yes I could do that. So then I play and just get my fucking shit pushed all the way back in. Like Ikm lucky if I die with enough money for one upgrade. I have to be on my 150th character as well or something.

When I watch other people play this game it looks rad. But whenever I play it’s so fucking difficult.

There’s some new game plus to this shit as well and of course everyone is like “Oh that’s where the real game starts”
