I'm notoriously impatient with puzzle games, and if I can't figure something out reasonably quickly, I'll drop it and move on.

Bought it as well.

As someone who loves the Souls games but never quite got with Bloodbourne's combat, I was a bit wary. Turns out it's significantly more difficult than all of them.

Don't think I've played the game since that video golg posted. :D

Sure, why not? What could possibly go wrong? ;)

Re: The Videogames Tab

Hard to imagine how happy I am now.

A sequel to one of the greatest RPGs ever made will be tough. Maybe start with quality control? :D

It'll also be on the Windows store (and consoles, natch), but that's one place I don't want to go unless there is no other option. Unless things have changed fundamentally, their download speed...

Actually, since Microsoft now owns Obsidian I guess we're lucky it's coming to the Epic store at all, let alone Steam, although with the Master Chief Collection's upcoming Steam release maybe they're...

Ok, just reading that The Outer Worlds will have a 12 month PC exclusivity to Epic. Guess I'm on board now. :p

Re: The Videogames Tab

These things are just timed exclusives, no?

The thing that surprised me initially was that, although I knew that TGC's Sony exclusivity was coming to an end, I had no idea that also applied to the...

When I bought my Sony TV 3 years ago, Playstation Now already had an app built into it, plus native Dualshock 4 support. They quietly dropped it 6 months later and the app disappeared. Too soon.

I'm deep in chapter 6 myself, and having a rough time because of the state Arthur is in and how much I like him.

I put around 20 hours into MHW, liked it well enough without ever wanting to finish it. Something about the actual combat felt very unsatisfying to me - I was unloading my massive weapons on these...

Re: The Videogames Tab

You'll also probably need to adjust each input separately - eg, if you mess around with brightness settings for Game Mode on HDMI 1, those settings will only apply to that input. HDMI 2 etc will need...

Does the TV have a Game Mode or similar? If you're getting different colours with different inputs it suggests that each input has different colour/brightness settings.

Talking of polished games, the new Toejam & Earl is out! :p

For the under 35s, Toejam & Earl was, if not the best game ever made, certainly the funkiest. Play it today and you'll go "Oh, a...

I saw The Long Dark for 6.99 in a PSN sale, so snagged it.

Haven't played the game since it was in early access on Steam.

Re: The Videogames Tab

I think I'll wait for a sale before getting DMC5. Never been a massive fan of the series, but I like what I've seen of the new game.

Not enough to bite this early though. ;)

I've played through XCOM 2 on PS4 and would heartily recommend it, so long as you go for the War of the Chosen expansion as well. The base game pales compared to what they've added.
