That Digital Foundry review of the new Pokémon games is fucking brutal, and incredibly damning. A really well done analysis. Also, happy Thanksgiving to all you 'mericans, may your food coma be long and restful!


 
 
 
 

I'll be skipping Pokémon this time due to the increasingly lowering standards of the games, but I hope those that get it enjoy it, the starters this time round all looke cute as heck.


 
 
 

Update: Ragnarok is very very VERY good. But if I see one more fucking [redacted] puzzle in the realm of [redacted] I'm going to fucking lose it. A teensy tiny spoiler (non-story related) in the comments.


 
 
 

Kirby and the Forgotten Land is done and dusted. Overall a decent if unmemorable platformer. Solid 6-7/10 and would definitely recommend to people looking for something cute and casual to play around Christmas time.


 
 
 

Ragnarok tomorrow. Two days booked off for it and in so excited. Then next month, I'll be grabbing Sonic Frontiers which will be my second ever Sonic game after playing Sonic Boom. Here's hoping it's good.


 
 
 

We raised over $300 for ExtraLife last night. Nuzlocke was fun, company was brilliant, Torch forced me to get even better at Pokémon by murdering half my team... Fun night overall

 
 
 

Feel free to join our Pokémon Nuzlocke here: tinyurl.com/watchlfp

 
 
 

Prins, Frosty & Myself will al be doing an ExtraLife Nuzlocke Race stream of Pokemon Platinum. Come watch my two friends absolutely demolish me at my favourite Pokemon game.


 
 
 

Persona 5 Royal speaking to Boxman, upon realising he doesn't have multiple saves in a JRPG.


 
 
 

I have time booked off to play God of War Ragnarok next week. Haven't done that since Bloodborne seven years ago. With the exceptionally positive reviews I am so so excited to get my hands on it. Bring it on baby.


 
 
 

Extra Life is this Saturday! And I'll be joined by our very own Frosty & Prins for a Pokémon Platinum Nuzlocke Race between the three of us. Hijinks & terrible Pokémon plays abound. Rules and streaming-link to follow!


 
 
 

I fucking adore Beacon Pines. That is all.


 
 
 

That RE4 Remake is a thing of beauty. Day One buy for sure. Us horror lovers are getting spoiled.

 
 
 

Silent Hill post regarding mo-cap was a bit vague. Had a couple of people point out that there was mo-cap in the previous game. Not what I meant: There was no facial mo-cap in the previous game at all, something not a lot of people seem to know about.


 
 
 

When you realise that, by using mo-cap, Silent Hill 2 Remake won't have the uncanny valley effect that creeps you out (specifically Maria), and so character models won't look unsettling, just awkward and stiff.


 
 
 

To be a Silent Hill fan is to be in pain.

 
 
 

Watched a film about the scariest scenario imaginable: Working in a restaurant at Christmas. Boiling Point is worth its weight in gold. It's Uncut Gems, if it was British & centred around hospitality. Also Stephen Graham is the best actor working today.


 
 
 

Finished my first spooky book of the month. Revival. Creepy as shit, with an ending that makes me feel existential in a way few books ever have or will. It has also made me even more terrified of death, dying, and what that means. Thanks Stevie boy.


 
 
 

Overwatch 2 is a bit of a mess huh. They literally didn't even bother to re-centre the victory card for 5v5, hot damn.


 
 
 

Jack Black as Bowser stealing the show from Mario. What a fucking perfect voice casting he was.

 
 
 

That Disco Elysium news update.


 
 
 

Was going to write a post talking shit about the bread memes. Thought I'd do it just to get a rise out of you all

 
 
 

The UK government the last week.

'Sup fools, it's me, ya basic British boy.

Been on Destructoid for five years and counting now, but have been reading for this wholesome site since November 2010.

The community has welcomed me despite being as cynical as one can get, and for that I will always be grateful.
Despite my seemingly hard front, I'm a softie at heart and will always give you the time of day, whether it be on Destructoid, Discord or if I'm fortunate enough to be carried by you in an online game.

Story-driven games are my forte, along with horror games, RPG's and FPS games.
To be honest, I'm someone who will play absolutely anything I can get my hands on; I believe you can find excellent games in the strangest of places.

Also decided to add my Games of the Year from years past, just because I can't really place my thoughts elsewhere:

2010 - Nier

2011 - Portal 2

2012 - Spec-Ops: The Line

2013 - The Last of Us

2014 - Valiant Hearts

2015 - Undertale

2016 - Oxenfree

2017 - Persona 5: The Royal

2018 - Return of the Obra Dinn

2019 - Disco Elysium
