    Yeah fair call. I think there's better ways to manage it though, especially when it comes to the master sword... Enjoyed the cooking/conjuring system very much.

    Yeah, it's a bit annoying, but it keeps you thinking about how to use certain things and keeps you trying out different weapons. I recently did a shrine fighting a tiny guardian type and it was called "a modest test of strength" and got walloped badly (while also breaking every weapon I had). I did beat the one in "a minor test of strength" though, but still got a long way to go. :p

    I spent probably 120 hours on Zelda Breath of the Wild - in the end I had so much strong gear that defeating the final boss was a walk in the park. Bit of an anti-climax, but isn't it always at the end of games. What a game though, definitely one of the best games I've ever played.

    I've been laughing at people playing Animal Crossing, it looks so silly and pointless, yet my son wanted to try it out, so we bought it - and ... I've been completely glued to it for three straight days now. Damn. It's tapping into something very primal in my brain.

    Finally got round to playing Assassins creed - Odyssey having bought it a couple of months ago and did that thing of playing about one hour and just forgetting about it. Now if anything I'm a little too invested but damn it's great. Some excellent escapism and for the first time in ages I dig the storyline (and witnessed a harrowing moment today), but there's so much else to dive in to as well. I wanted to get away from Fifa having had a recent relapse as it can the online gaming is a bit too addictive and in the long run an unfulfilling venture.

    Anyone else got back in to games previously gathering dust (metaphorical dust more likely)? An old friend I was chatting to who lives in a shipping container, said he'd finished whatever the latest Zelda game is on the Switch and thinks it's the best game he's ever played..But he never had a N64 so can't really say that without playing Ocarina of Time.

    I’ve played them both, Breath of the Wild is better, they are both awesome.

    Hmm, I'm very open to trying it but it's probably more for nostalgia's sake because of the age I was when played it that will make it hard to knock off the perch.

    It's a fantastic game. I've never played a Zelda game before Breath of the Wild and was blown away. Really good!

    I'm playing Hollow Knight at the moment. It's utterly fantastic. Pretty tough game, lots of hard bosses and a few crunching platforming sequences. It's huuuge, so lots of territories and enemies to explore. It's just excellent - the whole ambience of the game, the mechanics, all the secrets, the weird lore, enemies are great, the music is fantastic, the charm/abilities upgrade system is great - ah, it's just a masterpiece. And to think I got into it only a couple of months before the sequel is out! Highly recommended. :)

    Interesting. Do I dare? What is the gameplay like? Is it a shoot em up?

    survival horror in space, the visuals are based on the first film, it looks beautiful, it's fudging terrifying

    you do shoot things at times, but noise brings the alien looking, and you can't kill it

    Sounds awesome. You don't need a joypad or whatever then? Mouse and keyboard?

    either, you can use a pad if you have one, as long as it's supported by Steam
