Arrgh! I've had the follwing thought process about the PS4 release of FF12 for about 2 years...
You could always simply buy every FF re-release you come across and never touch any of them afterwards. Works for me. I feel culturally enriched by having them sitting in my cupboard and lulling myself to sleep with fairy tales of "Maybe one day... zZzZzZ"

Thumper: Pocket Edition seems to have dropped on to mobile stores this week. Its pricy at over £4 but I have a ton of credit (from the Google surveys app) so took the plunge. It seems great so far, although very difficult and I'm not all together sure what I'm doing! Looks gorgeous though.
So yeah this game is practically impossible on a touch screen. Keep missing turns and when you have a button hold directly before a turn its almost impossible to switch in time. Still, it's given me a taste for the full game which I will now look out for in a sale!

Will be interesting to see if they charge for it considering it's free on pc.

Did you ever try Woah Dave!?

Sort of similar, I was addicted to that for a while.

The steam page is up for the first in the "Vlambeer Arcade" collection Ultrabugs, also coming to the switch. That looks like it's going to be fun.

I’ve heard the name but didn’t know what it was. Just saw it’s available on 3DS (as I don’t have a PC) so will put it on my wish list. Thanks!

I reckon about £6.99 on Switch - the Nintendo equivalent of free!

Woah Dave! was free on PS+ (PS4/Vita) a few years back. It’s quite cool I think.

Sea of Thieves' mega update is out this week but other than that I'm not really fussed by anything this week. Not sure there's much for me until Rage 2, which isnt a problem. Being a pirate with a bit of Spider-Man inbetween will keep me going until May 14th.

Thanks Leon! There it was in my library. It is very good and is definitely a one more go type game. Very similar to Super Crate Box in single player at least.

There's an Arcade Archives release of Ninja Gaiden out on Switch tomorrow. Which is my birthday so I have the perfect excuse to treat myself!

I want Rage 2, but I don't full price want it. I do have $77 in credit at a game shop down in Mississauga though... hmmst. Lemme finish Ys VIII and decide after that. I'm tempted to go to Yakuza 0 (half done, been a year since last played) or Dawn of Sorrow next.

I'm reasonably confident Rage 2 will go cheap very quick so I'll wait.

Bethesda games do tend to drop quick, especially their FPS games but I am more than happy to buy it and trade it in when i'm done.

I want Rage 2, since I actually liked Rage 1 more than I thought I would, but I need make sure my PC can run the thing on a decent level first!
I'm hoping the game is "Rage but better" and not just different type of FPS with the name Rage slapped on it.

Rage 2 ain't doing so hot in reviews. It's got a 73 on Metacritic (4.4 user score), and a 62% positive "Mixed" score on Steam.

There appears to be *some* review bombing because it has Denuvo or something, but there's also plenty of reviews complaining it's plagued with bugs and kind of boring, even when it works.

I'd definitely wait for the inevitable sale... WTF is going on with Bethesda these days?

I’m not sure if I missed something but Fallout 76 aside I think Bethesda have been relatively consistent.

Although aggregate scores aren’t stellar some of the Rage 2 reviews have been individually favourable like the IGN review. I wouldnt write them off just yet.

73% isn't bad by any means!

Fallout 4 was also garbage, unless you like the building stuff mode. The Elder Scrolls mobile game was trash. Fallout Shelter had exploitative microtransactions. The Elder Scrolls tabletop game literally copy/pasted a D&D campaign and changed a few words. Wolfenstein 2 had tons of issues at launch including balancing issues with the difficulty settings.

It's not just Fallout 76.
