I don't recall TDC:AOR Tactics ever being announced for Game Pass. That's not to say it wasn't, or isn't going to come to GP at some point, of course. Google doesn't throw anything obvious up though.

Quite interested by it, mainly fuelled by how much I enjoyed the Netflix series last year. If the game captures even a sliver of the wonderful world they expended out from the original film then I'll be happy.

Strange how there seems to have been practically no promotion for Darksiders Genesis. It was the same story with the PC/Stadia release at the end of last year. I assumed they were not pushing that release so hard so they could go all-in on the consoles instead. It's not like the game is a terrible mess and they're trying to pretend it doesn't exist. It was a solid little romp on PC.

Yeah I had no idea what it was when it appeared on Stadia, I wrongly presumed it was a remaster of the original or something for Stadia.

I have just taken delivery of the Yakuza Remastered Collection and Yakuza 6 so very much looking forward to getting stuck into 3 through 6 after getting back into 2.

I was nearly gonna get the Vanquish/Bayonetta combo then I remembered I've tried both of those games before and didn't like either.

:lol:

That's me all over.

"Oh that game I tried 3 or 4 times before and didn't really like is getting a re-release on a newer system! Well I might like it this time round!"

Oh. No. I still don't.

Looking forward to DMC3 on Switch. For those who don't know, they've actually done quite a lot to this version. They added the ability to change styles on the fly like in 4 and 5, and you can now equip all weapons at once, instead of only being able to have two of each type. They also added local co-op for Bloody Palace mode. Those two first changes are huge though. It should totally blow open what is possible in the game. It's almost strange they haven't decided to give this release a new name, because it definitely would justify it.

It’s a curse to constantly want to try new releases.

Hope Two Point Hospital is good, I've been hoping for a Theme Hospital remake for years. Even being able to play the original on Vita would have been OK but for some reason the PS1 version was only playable on PS3 and PSP.

I’m told it’s pretty good, has most of the people that designed and developed the original working on it.

I never liked the original much, so I can’t really comment.

It’s been very well reviewed over the past couple of years: https://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/two-point-hospital

It’s also on Game Pass, which is great.

Do we know if there is any news on M+K support for Xbox yet?

There's a Mystery Dungeon demo on the eShop. Looks nice, like A. A. Milne illustrations (to be a bit generous), and seems to speed up the usual Pokemon battle system. Controls are a bit janky, though. Can only move in eight directions and I kept getting stuck on the scenery and stuff, quite a weird sensation in 2020. Also felt bizarrely input laggy. I imagine it's great for kids or Pokemon fans but felt quite cheap for a fifty quid game.
