I'm having a hard time getting in to DMC5 again because my PS4 is so loud I can hardly hear the game. Guess I'm going to have to crack it open and replace the thermal paste.


Decided to jump back into DMC5, and actually try to get in to building combos. It's nothing amazing, but pretty pleased with it as a first attempt. Takes down this guy in a single combo on hard difficulty.


Finally played through Vane. Many years ago I was pretty excited for this, but it got stuck in dev hell and reviews put me off. I liked some parts, but it's a mixed bag. Some great art and atmosphere, but also obtuse and bad at giving you directions.


So now CrossCode is out on console, but it looks like almost no big sites have reviewed it. The PC release didn't get much either. What's up with that? Did they not send out review codes?


Just finished OneShot, one of the games included in the huge itch charity bundle. Very cute, atmospheric, and does some really impressive and innovative things breaking the fourth wall, making you interact with the game in unusual ways. Highly recommended


Splatoon is five years old today!


Finished off replaying through El Shaddai today. An aesthetically amazing game that deserves way more attention than it gets. It's way too hard to pick a single screenshot to represent it too, it has so many amazing diverse environments.


My first Qpost is sadly as relevant as ever...


A bit of footage of the Nier mobile game. Looks appealing, but they did also confirm it has a gacha model.


Doom Eternal PSA: You can stagger Marauders through their shield with the Ballista.


First impressions of DMC3 on Switch. Style switching is very cool, Royal Guard is more forgiving than I remember it, the Agni and Rudra fight is still really good, but playing in handheld mode is a bad idea.


Platinum are teasing something called "Platinum 4". Sure sounds like the Capcom 5... https://twitter.com/platinumgames/status/1224271645721759747


I wanted to replay El Shaddai lately, but I found that it has an awful stuttering problem any time you hit anything. I'm pretty sure it was never this bad before. Tried to fix it but nothing worked. Maybe I'll track down a PS3 copy instead.


Hyper Light Drifter is the free game on the Epic store today. One of the best indie games ever.


Someone made their own fan art concept for Splatoon 3, and it's insanely impressive. Ridiculous amounts of detail and lore, and art that looks like it could be official. Link in comments.


Looks like Square Enix is teasing something for the Nier 10th Anniversary coming soon! https://www.jp.square-enix.com/nier10th/


As good as MCC is, it's always been a bit disappointing it didn't keep the original dynamic menus.


So how many people here are picking up Halo Reach for PC when it launches next week?


Was that RDR video too long? How about something that's "only" two hours instead?


There was another one of those Splatoon live shows today, and KK Slider made a guest appearance at the start.


Finished off Assault Spy today, and it's really damn good. If you're in to this sort of game, don't let it fly under your radar. Well worth checking out.


Finished Astral Chain. A very unique and impressive game. Far from perfect, but unlike anything else, and brilliant fun when it's at its best.


Really enjoying Astral Chain now I've got the hang of it. Near the end now. But I'm really not a fan of how you get ranked on random gimmick objectives. Normal fights are almost always S or S+, while carrying boxes with awful gyro controls is like D-B.


Been having a weird time with Astral Chain. At first it was really disappointing. Confused by all the praise. But then today I unlocked some specific moves and suddenly it clicked. Can't remember any game I've turned around on so much and so quickly.

Hello all, I'm Scrustle. I've had a strong love for games for most of my life. The original Pokemon games and Zelda: Majora's Mask are what first got me in to gaming, but I didn't branch out much beyond that until the generation after.

Favourite genres are action adventure games in the vein of Zelda, racing games, RPGs, and action games like DMC etc., but I enjoy plenty of other genres from time to time as well.
