I’m still kinda amused that someone has done a sequel to ‘The Ninja Warriors’ and that it’s getting pretty much zero PR.

I think it looks amazing too.

I've been sent PR for it (unsolicited) so that is happening, but I guess the big sites aren’t picking it up.

I read Nintendo Life a lot and that reviewed it (very well) a couple of weeks ago, but as excited as I was then, I’d pretty much added it to my Switch watch list and forgotten about it, as I imagine many others will. Strange to be doing it so early, unless it’s already out in the US? The eShop has no trailer either. Very odd marketing decisions for what could easily be a high profile release.

It came out a month ago in Japan and a few weeks ago in the US I believe.

Both Astral Chain and Control coming out so close to each other is a bit of a predicament. By all the reviews coming in, both seem stellar. I feel somewhat bad for Control, since I did really want it to be good and succeed, but I have to give the priority to Platinum. I'll try to pick Control up later though.

Sort of want Wreckfest too, but I've never been sure if I want to go with PC or console. Or if I'm even that interested in it. It basically looks like a less interesting FlatOut. I really like FlatOut, but that with all the personality taken out of it? I'm not so sure.

I want Astral Chain and Control, but I don't have a switch - that'll be my Christmas gift to self if I can pay off all my debts, which I'm well on track to doing - and Remedy has not really made any games I've liked as of yet... Suffice it to say, I'll wait for price drop on both. :P

I never really clicked with FlatOut, but I still play Destruction Derby to this day, and I’m really hoping Wreckfest has a bit of the wild and unpredictable crash racing those games offered. I’ve never wanted a remake more than DD2 so if this comes close I’ll be happy. But it’s clearly going to be about half price in a couple of months so I’ll wait!

I am ready for Astral Chain tomorrow.

I never usually watch preview videos, or things like that to try and keep as much of the game a surprise for myself - but in this instance I did, as I was concerned I’d not like it.

I’m now well keen to give it a good go.

Just gotta put the wife in a good mood, then, bottle of wine, pizza, new game - Friday night does me.

I'm still wavering. I loved Bayonetta and rinsed it. Bayo 2 is a great game but didn't grab me in the same way. Nier: Automata is one of my favourite game of the last few years but the combat was pretty repetitive after the first couple of hours.

I should really finish Fire Emblem first because I've been enjoying it a lot.

Strange things are afoot. Clippa favourite, Risk of Rain 2, is now out on console. It's the 'full game' despite it still being in early access on PC. I believe there's a console update roadmap stretching into next summer though, so perhaps it's all the same.

Bulletstorm surprised dropped on Switch today too apparently. I loved that game. Adding to the watch list for a sale for sure.

So, so good.

Curious Expedition and Mushihimesama Futari Black Label have knocked it down to third place for the best game I've played this year, but man, that game dragged me out of the dumps and a big spell of gaming fatigue. I'll always be eternally grateful for that. It's a big strapping hero of a game.

Oof, I can't see console folk being too hot on that 10 quid price hike.
I wasn't expecting it so soon, I gotta tell you, I assumed they'd finish up early access and get the game spit polished first.

Game is brilliant fun, play solo.

I remember all your posts were, 'Look at how fast I'm going, wheeee!' :lol:

The console price is a bit rich all right, 40% cheaper on PC. I guess they have to account for certification costs and the like :roll:

£25 on Switch! I'm interested, but I'm only about £12.99 interested. I did enjoy the first one.

Shame they dropped the Vita version. I remember being surprised when they announced it, but they were insistent it was coming. Till it wasn't.

River City Girls looks like it’ll be fun for those who are sad that the Scott Pilgrim game was delisted.

I must be stuck in the past. WoW Classic was the thing I was most excited for and now I only want those Spyro and Final Fantasy VIII remasters.
