Fuckin A. Uncharted Lost Legacy is absolutely incredible looking. Technically and artistically this is the best looking game of the generation.

And best Uncharted of this gen.

So very disappointing how the Secret of Mana remaster turned out. Sad

Back from skiing holiday!

Labo's Motorbike game lets you scan real-life objects

The level of inventiveness in these things is just of the charts.  If advertised well enough that people can see past what innitially seems like a steep asking price, these things are going to be more popular than cardboard boxes are with homeless people!

Some youtuber is going to get homeless people to pose with Labo boxes.

I've been playing Furi on Switch.  It's a challenging game that's right up my alley.  It's basically 11 bosses, with some mediocre walking sections inbetween that serve to advance the 'story'.  The story resolves around you being some great danger that has been imprsoned in some high security prison, and all the bosses are either fellow inmates or jailers.  All the while you are being guided (and narrated) by some mysterious figure in a bunny hat.  It's all rather typical, but I'm content to just roll with it.  The walking bits are horrible though, as the camera switches between different points of view for 'cinematic effect'.  This often results in the terrain you have to cross being difficult to read, leaving you wandering from one bit of scenery to the next, not sure exactly where you need to go, or even where exactly you are now.

I'm currenlty on my 4th boss and so far they've all been interesting, although also a bit samey.  Every fight typically alternates between fights in a larger arena and close up encounters.  The arena parts are a combination between third person action games and twin stick shooters with parries, bullet hell, and patterns to memorize.  The close up fighting ditches the twin stick shooter aspects to focus on twitch reflexes and pattern memorization.  Every fight consists of a number of different stages, each rounded off by a close encounter section.  Fail a secion and you're typically booted back to the start, with the boss recharging his or her health for that stage.  There's an interesting mechanic in that you and the bosses possess multiple health bars.  Deplete that of the boss and you go to the next stage in the fight.  Empty one of your own and that stage in the fight gets rebooted.  It is however possible to regain heatlh by parrying, and by doing well you can recuperate whole health bars.  It gives a nice ebb and flow to the fights, where it is possible to recover from a bad sequence as you regain health bars.  It does however also mean that fights can drag on.

Been enjoying it so far, even though I've been stuck on the 4th boss for longer than my ego would like to admit.  I'll just need to get in the right mindset once, as I've been playing in less than ideal circumstances so far.

This could be my 5 minutes of fame!  How hard can it be to find some homeless people?  I'll have them pose with models of the Labo 'house' for added effect!

Godamnit. Bought a horse in Skyrim, it died on its first run.

I thought they would have fixed this nonsense from Oblivion but it's still there and the damned thing was a pain in the butt to ride about. I have a skeleton key from the thieves guild quest that is unbreakable but if I don't give it up, I cannot finish the quest. Luckily I am quite good with lockpicking this time, suprisingly.

Horses are cool but not very useful. i mostly get around by teleporting, paragliding or shield surfing.
