  1. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    Honestly, it looks like I'm going to skip the switch or wait until it's cheap with a good back catalogue. Paying for online is not something I've want to do for two services. I love the idea but as others have said, the execution leaves a lot to be desired. That said, the new Zelda game looks fucking amazing. My Wiiu will have plenty of use from that
  2. There is basically catching pokémon, breeding and battling AI/people. It's enough for me, but yeah, it's pretty slim. I don't think it's 700 pokémon, only like 200 or something in Sun/Moon.
  3. GOTY.cx 2016

    I really liked Titanfall 2, Overwatch, DOOM, Hyper Light Drifter and Pokémon Sun/Moon. They're all awesome games, but I think it's telling that I'm still playing Titanfall 2 and Pokémon the most. Overwatch is great but I don't like the competitive mode. It's so good, but it's so infuriating. Then QP has a bunch of problems, like people not playing the actual game, and running off to fuck about. Overwatch IS the competitive mode for me, but I hate the stress of it. DOOM is great, but I just can't force myself to play through it again. It's a damn good shooter, I just prefer Titanfall.
  4. I genuinely think that this is the best pokémon game yet.
  5. Rocket League

    It was the constant whiffing. I couldn't hit the ball in the direction I wanted, I couldn't stop the ball and I couldn't get the ball in the air. Found it very inaccessible actually. It required devotion to be competent at.
  6. Other podcasts

    Just gave it a listen and that's really not my thing. Didn't even crack a smile.
  7. Other podcasts

    Any comedy podcast recommendations?
  8. Recently completed video games

    Transformers Devestation Bayonetta light, with the cartoon aesthetics of 80s transformers. Unfortunately I am slightly too young to ever have loved transformers, having been born in the late 80s. Still, I appreciated the look of the game. So bright and beautiful. Plays well too. I mean, it's basically just Bayonetta. So it's hard to go wrong! Edit: I have actually picked this up for the challenge modes after beating it once, and am even having a crack at the hardmode campaign. This is a REALLY good one of those Platinum Style games. There seems to be less juggling involved, but counters/vehicle attacks and guns make this a great version. Seriously, the guns, are amazing. You can absolutely destroy anyone with a dodge-reversal-vehicle attack-shoot combo. Really loving this game, didn't realise how much I wanted a Platinum style game recently.
  9. I Had a Random Thought (About Video Games)

    I've made a conscious effort not to buy a ton of games this year just to stick with the zeitgeist. It's nice to talk about stuff as everyone is playing the same thing, but man, it's a lot of money. I'm just sitting back and spending a ton of time with Overwatch, Hearthstone, TW3 (again), MGSV (again) and any freebies I get on PS+. It's pretty nice. I even started up my old sae game of Xenoblade Chronicles X I never finished and managed to get the Skell. Shame about the story in that game...it's terrible.
  10. DOOM

    It's a good game. I finished it but had no desire to do a second play through though. Which kinda sucks. It's super enjoyable. Also the sound track is now available for purchase from itunes/googleplay and is also on Spotify.
  11. Personally I find Idle Weekend to complain-y. I don't like listening to how gamer culture sucks and how gamers are terrible people every single episode.
  12. Shaving My Thumbs

    I also shave in the shower, unless I'm in a rush. Always with shaving foam though. I shave against the grain on the moustache area, and with the grain everywhere else. Cheap as fuck bic razors last me months if I shave 3 times a week. I don't have much hair though...
  13. The Witcher 3: What Geralt Wants

    I restarted TW3. The beginning of this game is fucking amazing. It just drags on far too long. I'll have fun right up until the point it should end (then push myself through to get the damn trophy).
  14. Hyper Light Drifter

    I can't beat North boss on NG+. One mistake and I'm dead. Maybe I should leave it and come back once I have the shotgun. That thing does so much damage it makes short work of bosses.
  15. What is the Nadir of the Simpsons?

    I also like that episode. It's not among my favourites, but it delivers good, consistent laughs and explores one of my favourite side characters (Skinner).
