I've not gotten to any combat yet; in fact I've only had one time where my life has even been in danger. It's all been extended tutorial so far, and cut scenes where people with extremely silly names...

I Death Stranded for 3 or 4 hours yesterday. More, much more, to come once I've got my head round it all.

It's probably fair to say that I adore and detest DS in equal measure right now. These...

The weirdest AAA game ever made? I'm trying to think of anything with this much publicity even remotely close.

I passed on Before The Storm (watched a couple of Let's Plays though) as it was made by a different team to the previous game, but I know quite a few people who really like it.

Agreed 100%.

People I know seem to like it a lot, but I've definitely not heard the same buzz from it.

I've been meaning to play Life is Strange 2 for months now, as it's on Game Pass, but something's stopping me. I think I'm kinda apprehensive that it won't hit the same highs as the first game.

Re: The Videogames Tab

10 years is a funny one, as it straddles console generations.

The game I've undoubtedly put most hours into during that time is Skyrim, but is it my favourite?

Dark Souls should be up there, in...

I always figured that Kojima unchained by Konami would be even more up his own rear than usual, but it sounds like he's disappeared so far that he's turned himself inside out.

Outer Worlds news - It's amazing.

If someone had told you of the premise and the team involved, long before release, this is exactly how you'd dream it'd turn out. DNA from the original two...

Re: The Videogames Tab

Another solid recommendation - Children of Morta

It's a run based dungeon crawler/rpg with a gorgeous art style. Nicely written, too.
