It does say that it's "personalised", but no mention I could see in the T&Cs that it was tied to my account. I guess we'll find out.

Check your emails, I’ve had a code for 50% off Labo sets from Nintendo UK.
Anyone else get this email and not need their code?
Absolutely. Check your PMs!

Edit: Now sent, but the PM isn't showing in my sent folder. Let me know if you received the message, or if I should re-send. Cheers!
I can’t see anything. Can you resend and we shall see if it works:)

In case you don't know: Unread PMs are temporarily stored in your "Outbox" folder. Don't delete them!

Phew! Excellent. No idea what I did wrong first time around.
Better that the code goes to someone who will use it, rather than my ungrateful arse. :mrgreen:
Enjoy!

The Flame In The Flood is cheap on the eshop at the moment, 6 or 7 quid. Anyone played it? I've fancied trying it for ages so may give it a go. Love the genre, the setting and graphics look nice too.

I don't like the genre but I found it really fiddly and boring and quite annoying. It's really hard and unsatisfying. I appreciate it's really not aimed at me but it's one of the absolute 100% regrets I've bought on the Switch (of which there are probably thirty or so).

Yeah, it’s very difficult. Loved the music though.

Yeah, I bought that a while back mostly because of that soundtrack, I like the art style too, but it was how often I listen to the soundtrack that incentivized me to pick it up (haven't played it yet though).

Yeah the music is great, the whole game is really atmospheric but it becomes "inventory management: The game" later on and once you get over a few big early hurdles, you can survive forever, late game is really badly balanced.
I'd say it's worth 6 or 7 quid. You'll get your monies worth. The honeymoon period is really great. Got properly sucked in by that game.

Found my initial impressions during early access. I was so stoked for it, but sadly it didn't get rebalanced, they just left it how it was.
I absolutely love it. It's very "don't starve".

It's clearly designed to be played with a pad, and the m/kb controls are very clunky at the moment so I wouldn't bother if you don't have a pad, not yet anyway.

I too wouldn't recommend it just yet as it's pretty buggy. The biggest one being that there's some sort of memory leak that'll start your framerate chugging after playing for around quarter of an hour, though this can be fixed by returning to the menu after a save and continuing. Having said that I don't recommend it yet, I've pumped 18 hours into it already in it's current state. It's very addictive. So, if you don't mind bugs, jump on in.

There is a lot of balancing to do and content to add. It's far, far too easy at the minute, once you get over the initial "learning from your mistakes" hurdles of course. Once you've learned the ropes, you're pretty much untouchable, runs seem to last forever. I've traveled 97.2 miles over 62 days on my current run with no sign of it coming to an end any time soon even though materials have become much scarcer.

Keep an eye on it, it's still very much just gone into the oven but when it's done, this is going to be amazing.

I've found that PSN doesn't always do a great job of telling you there's a deal on any specific game*, so I was wondering if there was a PS equivalent of 'is there any deal?' and it turns out there is!

https://psdeals.net/

I've just signed up so I don't know how good it is, but it seems to allow you to select a game and put it on your notification list, as well as showing discount history/historic low etc.

*It's not of much interest around these parts, but MLB The Show 19 is 33% off for the next 12 days (in European stores - it was already discounted for the All Star break in the US last week) and doesn't show up on any deals section.

In regard to actual deals, Subnautica is a new low at 33% off in a weekend deal that ends in one day, so that's quite good if you were curious about one of the tip-top games in its genre.

Nice! That'll come in handy. :)

Castlevania Collection on Switch is 30% off, so I picked that up for about £9.

Which is nice.

I was of course using that merely as an illustration of how PSN doesn't work very well.

But did you know that baseball is the nerdiest of sports, due to the sheer volume of games lending themselves to statistical analysis? In fact it has been locked in a titanic battle between the Nerds and the Jocks for the last 10-20 years (a battle the Nerds have decisively won, to detrimental effect, some would say).
Jason Wyerth wrote:"They’ve got all these super nerds in the front office that know nothing about baseball but they like to project numbers and project players,” Werth said. "It’s to the point where you just put computers out there. Just put laptops and what have you, just put them out there and let them play. We don’t even need to go out there anymore. It’s a joke.

Anyway, I wouldn't wish baseball upon you - I imagine Cricket 19 is more your area; I'll let you know when I get it so we can multiplayer. :P

Is it a deal? Not sure but I just bought Kingdom Hearts: The story so far for 17.99 on Amazon which bundles nearly all the previous entries in the series before 3.

Handily this means I can sell my old copies of the games on previous systems and make a tidy profit.

If you have amazon prime, the PlayStation classic was £16, I think it’s a waitlist deal right now.
