I was really close to putting Suikoden down after finding the first couple of hours very boring in terms of combat strategy. I'm really happy I kept going as it's picked up loads! Any games people have nearly put down only to find they end up loving them?

 
 

I'm surprised by how hyped I for Death Stranding. One worry is the section where the player is walking through a trench shooting people - looks too normal and shooty. Love how the exploring looks. And just up for a twisty, original story.

 
 
 

So I've been trying to create a favorite games list for a while now and this is what it currently looks like. They're all based on my own experience and it's definitely not a list of the BEST games. Tried to have a variety though https://imgur.com/qW5zT6P


 
 

Sekiro update - I've reached Hirata Estate Hidden Temple boss and the mini-boss straight after the Ashina Castle gate. About 8 hours gameplay in total. Annnnnd...I don't think this is the game for me. Glad I tried it though.

 
 

Never thought I was going to love Etrian Odyssey Untold as much as I have done. It's a long JRPG dungeon crawler, but it pretty consistently throws new situations the players way. Love exploring the dungeons/ so many close situations! Love it!

 
 

Super Mario 3 is the game which makes me the most frustrated. I enjoy playing it but it inevitably it ruins my mood. I do not understand how people beat that game on the nes with no saving.

 
 

I'm pretty excited for the castlevania collection released next week! Can wait to play Bloodlines, Kid Dracula and Curse of Dracula for the first time!

 
 

Quick thoughts on Sekiro after 5 hrs: Legit exciting to fight enemies - love hunting mid-bosses for beads - encourages "bravery" in the player - kind of dodgy stealth - player options in the levels/midbosses aren't encouraged by the first big boss.

 
 

Anyone ever used one of these? Possibly the worst plug and play? Looks a bit like a Dreamcast controller, and it rumbles, but just when you press a button. It's loaded with shit nes games from Color Dreams.


 
 

Okay so Obra Dinn hasn't disappointed in terms of originality; there seems to be quite a bit of content here as well. Great presentation, and the music is fantastic! I wasn't expecting that. Nor the sound design in general being this good.


 
 

This weekend my girlfriend is away so I've downloaded Return to the Obra Dinn and I'm going to power through it. I've been excited to play this game for ages; going in completely blind!

 
 

I realised over the last month or so that when I feel stressed at work, I look for videogames to BUY. I'm not necessarily playing more - just looking to buy more which is pretty unhealthy. And I don't necessarily buy anything, just waste time browsing.

 
 

If I was shit at parrying in MGS: Revengence, will I actually be able to play Sekiro?

 
 

There's this issue when working at home where the thing you do work on (namely the computer) is the same thing you use when you want to not do work (playing videogames/watching videos).

 
 

So I was play Persona 3 FES for a while - got about 27 hours in - and was going to write about it in a bloggy kind of way...but I've put it down for now. Was put off by the repetition, but weirdly miss it now that I haven't played it for a month.

 
 

I love it in Another Code: Two Memories for the DS where you are given a DS console in game. Happens in Luigi's mansion 2 as well. Any others people can think of??

 
 

So I've been playing The Messenger thanks to it being free with Twitch Prime:- I am enjoying my time with the game so far (I think I just got to the twist), it's very addictive. But sort of happy I didn't buy it. Not entirely getting the hype around it...

 
 

I've started writing about Persona 3 FES, feel free to check out the opening blog! In game I'm currently feeling guilty for entirely sidelining Junpei - p.s. Stupei is the best pun ever conceived

 
 

I have to say that the spooky Haunted House show on Netflix is one of the best programmes I've seen in a while. It's basically a spooky melodrama! I need to go back and re-watch Oculus and other Mike Flanagan stuff

 
 

I watched Rogue One last night for the first time. My girlfriend's interest in the film dwindled significantly when she realised it was about the Death Star AGAIN(!), making it the fourth Star Wars film to be about the, or at least a, Death Star.

 
 

When will it not be Black Friday?

 
 

Started playing Persona 3 this weekend. It's surprising how quickly the game gets going compared to Persona 5... Loving the music as usual. Party management seems quite limited so far. No demon descriptions :(
