OneShot is finally out on consoles! A great little game more people should check out. It's got a great little story and does a lot of interesting things with the medium.

 
 

Best part of the Direct wasn't in the Direct.

 
 

A demo for this just came out on Steam, and I thought it was really impressive. The movement feels great. Never heard of it before. Being a Stadia exclusive until now is probably why.

 
 

This mod has been around for a while, but it just got updated. Used to use AI upscaling, now using the actual original source textures.

 
 

10 years ago today we were blessed with #Darksiders2 and the world was never the same again.


 
 

The secret of the Nier Church revealed!!!

 
 

Finished off the Gungrave anime today. It was pretty good. It diverts from the game quite a lot, but it was actually at its best when it did.

 
 

Played through the original Gungrave today. Actually a pretty fun little game. Short, sweet, and stylish.

 
 

DRAGON'S DOGMA 2 IS REAL!!!!!!!!!

 
 

Finished God Hand today. A game I've been meaning to get around to for ages. Didn't like the tank controls but the level of customisation over your abilities was really cool. A lot of goofy fun overall.


 
 

Completed Lost in Random today. Surprised how much I enjoyed it. It also spent 15 hours building up to a single pun.

 
 

Does anyone around here have Forza Horizon 1 with the Rally DLC that would be willing to help me with some multiplayer achievement hunting? Would return the favour of course. (bump)

 
 

Finished off replaying Ico today. Even 20 years later, it's a really special little game.

 
 

No prizes for guessing my most played Wii U game.


 
 

Finished MGS4 today. Wow, what a game. Maybe my favourite of the series so far.

 
 

It is the winter solstice. Go play OneShot.

 
 

Just beat Halo Infinite. Originally I wasn't even going to play it after the mess of Halo 5. I went in very sceptical but was pleasantly surprised, it's pretty good. Still a lot of problems but I had fun with it.

 
 

With Infinite out I've got Halo on the mind again, and damn if this series doesn't have some absolute bangers.

 
 

My Switch didn't get much use this year...


 
 

Anyone else having trouble with Disqus on the front page? I can comment on Qtoid but it won't let me log in on the FP.

 
 

Finished off Scarlet Nexus today. Had a lot of fun with it. The story is a mess by the end, but the combat is really fun and it's dripping with style.


 
 

Zeno Clash 3 just got announced out of nowhere! Sort of.

 
 

Today was the last content update for Forza Horizon 4. I kept up with it every week, totalling at 468 hours played. Although I'll still go back to it every so often, it feels like the end of an era.


 
 

I've been sinking a load of time in to a NG+ run of Final Fantasy XV lately. Having lots of fun with the photo mode again too.


 
 

Played the demo for Scarlet Nexus today. Actually pretty impressed. Using psychic powers to link combos together was a lot of fun, and the aesthetic is very cool.


 
 
 

Finished off the final ending of Drakengard 3 today. I hate this game, but also love it. The final boss was really cool. I never want to have to do it ever again. Also the music for it is great, some of Keiichi Okabe's best work.

 
 

Just finished the original Drakengard. It's a strange, ugly, tedious game, but I couldn't help but like it. Very interesting approach to story that goes some wild places. Soundtrack is weirdly compelling too.

 
 

Shouting out OneShot for #indietoid A sombre game with an adorable protagonist that breaks the fourth wall and explores the relation between a player and the game in really interesting ways. More recommendations in the comments.

 
 
 

About Scrustleone of us since 2:06 PM on 04.27.2012

Hello all, I'm Scrustle. I've had a strong love for games for most of my life. The original Pokemon games and Zelda: Majora's Mask are what first got me in to gaming, but I didn't branch out much beyond that until the generation after.

Favourite genres are action adventure games in the vein of Zelda, racing games, RPGs, and action games like DMC etc., but I enjoy plenty of other genres from time to time as well.
