I think I love Dusk.


 
 

So, The Exorcist stage show was really good. Mostly well acted, cool effects (her head span round and everything), legitimately got chills when she did a (sort of) levitate. And Ian Mckellen played the demon, which I didn't realise at first.


 
 

Is my birthday, spending most of it in work with a cold. BUT going to see a stage play of The Exorcist later. And I might buy a Switch as a present to myself...


 
 

Apparently I collect pins now. I just think they're neat.


 
 

Did I buy Dusk now that it's out on GoG? Heck yes I did buy Dusk now that it's out on GoG.

 
 

Minit is free on Epic store. I've gotten 14 free games from there now, some of which are awesome and I might never have played otherwise. If I just take the free stuff and never buy anything on the store, I am winning right? Feels like I'm winning.

 
 

Finally bought Nioh, been in my wishlist since it came out. Hasn't made the best first impression though; starting area is kinda dull, visuals look PS3-ish in some repects. Still, looking forward to getting further into it and fighting some cool demons.

 
 

Hyper Light Drifter is so good I almost feel bad getting it for free. This happened when I got Papers Please free and then bought it anyway cos I wanted to give Pope some money.

 
 

Platinum games should make love.

 
 

Tried Transistor since getting it free from the EGS. Played a couple of hours but couldn't really get into it. Started Hyper Light Drifter (also EGS freebie) and it seems more like my thing.

 
 

Think I'll skip the Godmaster stuff in Hollow Knight, kinda seems like a boss rush thing? Not really for me. Besides after ~45 hours I'm ready to finish off the last boss. What an experience it's been. Looking forward to the sequel.


 
 

Finished Bloodstained with 99.60% completion at ~40 hours. Must be a super hidden room somewhere. Such a great game.


 
 

Started a new day job this week. Less time for music producing and games, which sucks. Gotta be done I suppose, at least I'm getting some money.


 
 

Metroidvanias are like crack for me. I've barely played anything other than Bloodstained lately, and now I'm close to completion I kinda don't want it to end... gonna grind some more and farm for more metals and delicious meats.


 
 

Thanks to this video I only just got the unsubtle reference in the character name "Roivas"... spelt backwards.

 
 

Another mod available for Bloodstained is the "Sexy Monsters" mod. Example in the comments...


 
 

If you're playing Bloodstained on PC I'd reccommend using ReShade and the Bloodstained%20 preset mod. It gives the shading more vibrance and makes it generally nicer to look at, as I found the default to be a little bland.


 
 

Heh, EA likes money.


 
 

I did a rare thing (for me) and bought Bloodstained at launch, I'm so happy this game got made. That it crashed to desktop within 20 minutes kinda spoiled the beginning, but I'm enjoying the rest so far.

 
 

RE2 was great, fuck those plant zombies though. Now back to finishing up Spider-Man. Unlocked the cartoon suit which is now my favourite.


 
 

I hang out with some very mature people.


 
 

The only E3 conference I watched in full (I tend to just watch the trailers) was the Devolver "Direct". It was entertaining, and the end credits gave me a laugh. Carrion looks pretty good.


 
 

Really bugs me when this happens. The player character could clearly climb over something in the environment and avoid dangers, but they're not allowed. Happened twice in RE2 so far, saw it in RE7 too. Just put a full wall or fence there. #VideogameLogic


 
 
 

Huh. Resident Evil 2 is actually as good as everyone says. Haven't been this tense and jumpy playing a game since... well, RE 7. Mr. X's hat looks a bit silly, still a scary dude though.


 
 

Over the past few weeks I've had two dreams about playing Red Dead Redemption 2, and one about playing Runescape. I haven't even bought RDR2 yet and I stopped playing RS years ago. Is my subconcious teasing me? Dreams are weird.

 
 

Currently waiting for Resident Evil 2 to finish downloading after getting it on sale from Humble store. Not been so excited to play a game in a while.


 
 

I don't usually do selfies, but this is a fun idea #VGTwinsie


 
 

The people of NYC just take it in their stride these days huh...


 
 

I treated myself. Everyone praised it to high heaven so expectations are high. Just have to wait 7 hours for the bloody update to download...
