I recently read 2 books by Rosemary Sutcliff about Roman Legionaries in Celtic Britain - they're great if a little conservative. I remembered that Spiderwed Soft made a Roman RPG back in the day, so I booted it up today. It's now in line after EO2 ;)


 
 

Finally bought a Switch! I went for a Lite (GC colour) as we don't have space for more consoles and my kid will literally pull it off the TV. Games I've got so far: Kowloon High School Chronicle, SMTV, Divinity OS 2, and Castlevania Collection ;)

My candidate for the most 'Why the fuck is it a rogue-like game' goes to Pendragon. It looks beautiful, it's got great writing, but its all about story, so it feels really disappoitning to start again every time you die :(


 
 

Played this boardgame called Roll Player over the weekend, all about rolling a character for an RPG. It was great fun but made me really want to play Baldur's Gate :)


 
 

Loving the autumnal level in EO2 :)


 
 
 

I just want to make it known that Dark Scavenger, a weird af indie RPG/Adventure game from 2014, is availale for 39p on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/293880/Dark%20/ https://store.steampowered.com/


 
 

Just finished reading Hyperion by Dan Simmons (at about 5am while my son was still asleep). I'm not that big into SciFi novels but I LOVED this one. V weird and fun and I love the fictional universe it builds - vvvv plausible imho :) Any recommendations?


 
 

I'm quite excited for Undernauts, not that I'll have time to play another huge dungeon crawler (and I'm sure it'll be both huge and slow), but the box art is absolutely great! It's just a crazy collage of cool looking art lol


 
 

Anyone ever bought a game before they got the console? I just got this weird dungeon crawler for Switch - also managed to preorder SMT V. Not sure whether to buy a Lite or save for a full TV Switch (the price difference is quite bit????).

Ive never contributed laods to Dtoid, but I love to see what everyone's up to and I enjoy sharing when I can. Been busy with baby and moving house so I've had little opporutnity to sadly. Here's 1 baby photo. Promise that's the only one :)


 
 
 

Found these Hugo box files on the street the other day. I had a PS1 game with him in and absolutely hated it!! haha These are definitely going on my desk :)


 
 

I've never really posted personal stuff on here before, but I just want to say how much Etrian Odyssey has helped me through a very stressful time with work recently. I find the game strangely healing sounds ridiculous but there it is :)


 
 

Patrick Stewart explaining to Julie Walters why Hotel Dusk: Room 215 is such a fantastic game :) :) :)


 
 

Found this out via the HG101 podcast but the Playism store is closing its doors which means the only way to "purchase" Demon King Chronicle will be gone on 24th March. Pretty obscure but it's a fun game if you like scruffy rpg maker jrpgs :)


 
 

Why did PS3 games have that clear bit at the top?!


 
 

This is my joke and I'm sticking with it


 
 

Heads up that Room 237 is on Amazon Prime, if that's your morally dubious platform of choice. I would highly recommend it! :)


 
 

I find Sekiro a really interesting game for how little love it seems to get despite it being from FROM. Personally, Im not a fan of the game but I'm not entirely sure why. Dtoid, give me your Sekiro opinions!!..is it underrated? More of my thoughts below

 
 

I've been working my way through some old DS games recently and some have been great to return to, Okamiden for example. But the Full Metal Alchemist DS game is pretty awful. I feel like it had potential but ends up feeling half arsed :(


 
 

I tried the DQ11 demo and I got some nit picks :) This dog for one; the hero's haircut for another; and why am I going after these poor slimes? They're literally just going about their day. Much prefer random battles to this weird role reversal.


 
 

Happy Halloween!


 
 

I love it when you're playing two games at the same time which contrast really well together so you can pick your moood


 
 

Anyone playing anything spooky for October?


 
 

Finished Lunar Legend this weekend. It's a solid 5/10 game. Fun characters and story, but lacks challenge and there's 0 exploration. It's also blighted a woeful translation and the sound quality is pretty bad too. Quite chilled though :)


 
 

On the final stretch of Lunar Legend... time for some dramatic anime combat!


 
 

So I've mentioned already in a comment that I was playing Lunar Legend and I wasn't very kind about it :( I can't completely take it back, as it's extremely tropey and has very simple combat, BUT I guess that's just what I need right now :)
