  1. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!

    On a single walk home from work, my Jigglypuff earned 12,500 XP inside the pokeball plus
  2. Hollow Knight

    My first thought was that the game looked a bit basic, visually. Going solely from a few screenshots I'd glanced at, it looked like a newgrounds animation, castle-crashers esque (which is fine when you're being comical, but not for something taking itself seriously) and too flat. However once I actually got it and played it a bit I thought the opposite, the artwork is great, the lighting and design brings it to life, and it nails the mood and atmosphere its going for perfectly. Really worth a look at this price. Really worth a look at any price.
  3. Hollow Knight

    It's an absolute bargain for a beautiful and brilliant game. Agree that the start is slow, at least in terms of challenge/depth, but loved every minute. Some very difficult challenges in the endgame too.
  4. Name Changes

    Patreon rewards are updated at the beginning of the month! this is for two reasons, one so we can do them all at once and stay on track, and two because that's when Patreon actually charges your card. Cheers!
  5. Name Changes

    Do you want anarchy? Because this is how you get anarchy.
  7. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!

    Yeah in catching they get an even share, but then in catching no poke helps You're right though, the game is different enough that it could've been different from the set precedent, I certainly wasn't sure.
  8. What Have You Bought?

    Are you aiming to get rid of everything on your shelf? There's definitely something liberating about owning less stuff.
  9. What Have You Bought?

    Are we talking treadmill levels of stupidly expensive? Whatever you're doing for a living, you're doing it right!
  10. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!

    Fair enough! My SO said otherwise but she must've been mistaken. How does @Serebii confirm these numbers, from datamining/hacking sources? Or are they published in official guides?
  11. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!

    Ah right, fair enough. This part isn't true though is it? - I don't think you can see the shiny before you start.
  12. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!

    I was going to say shinies definitely seem more common in this game, my SO got a shiny Caterpie as her 3rd catch in the game. That said, if anyone's going to be an authority on their frequency at this point it would be you with your hundreds of Chanseys
  13. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!

    Well at least I'm glad to hear it has some fights later on that you couldn't just win by setting up one of those perpetual motion bird things to press A for you
  14. board games

    Here's some simple-ish games I like that haven't been listed. I cba to write about them but you can google and see if they're for you Power Station Settlers of Catan Munchkin Takenoko And I'm not sure what defines a board game but there's The Resistance/Coup which are basically Mafia in a box but need more than a couple of people.
  15. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!

    So the easiest game I've played in decades and you're cheating to make it easier?
  16. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!

    This game is too, too easy. I've not played much compared to you guys but I don't think it could've been possible to lose a single fight if I had tried. Every opponent in the first 3 areas has had a single subpar pokemon, which would be ok normally but it's so easy to have 6 high level pokemon in no time now. If anything the difficulty needed scaling up to match the new advantages, but has been scaled down. It's a good fun game, nostalgic and a great way to bring Red and Blue to life, but why they've made it a baby's game in terms of difficulty is beyond me. Do they think kids can't play hard games? Hope it ramps up a bit.
  17. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!

    Since I found a Bulbasaur in my first trip through the forest I don't really want to start again, so maybe I'll just pretend they're both the same person who changes their hair off-camera and has a personality disorder and doesn't really remember being the other guy.
  18. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!

    I called my rival Blue because I had no idea Blue was going to show up 5 minutes later
  19. But then they would just be called Band.
  20. Detective Pikachu - The Movie

    I would. I will! My other half will love it. I need more lighthearted movies like this in my life and this looks great to me.
  21. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    Adventure Sync is working great. Can hatch eggs walking around work!
  22. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!

    I haven't been following it, but can't I move either of these into Lets Go from Go? And Arcanine?
  23. Destiny 2

    That's pretty shitty. I mean it's good in the end but people who bought the expansions just to play Forsaken ought to be due a refund.
  24. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    I think I need to give Celeste a look. I watched someone else play it and even took the controller to try a few bits, and I just couldn't see what the lasting appeal would be. But the positive reaction can't be ignored.
