I think I like Death Stranding, but boy I could really do without the BT sections. Those are not even remotely enjoyable.

my two big death stranding cons 5 hours in:

- stealth gets in the way of my beautiful walking simulator and is a huge buzzkill
- can’t hide norman’s scraggly facial hair

So

You can kind of just sprint through them. If you have full stamina and just book it they’ll chase you but you should be fine. That stuff is a lot more lenient than the game tries to make you think.

Yay, Ben did a Quick look for the new Gunvolt game:


Played this on Steam and it's great. Get this if you're looking for your late-era Mega Man fix.

Also kudos to Ben for highlighting something that would go under the radar otherwise.

That helps significantly. Thanks!

I'm behind on content but i'm looking forward to watching this QL at some point. Seems like a cool game.

I just beat the boss on floor 12 of Luigi’s Mansion and that to me is a serious contender for best moment or sequence. The whole fight from top to bottom was awesome!
Its Captain Fishhook, the pirate shark ghost.



Look at this cool guy! He possesses the floor of the ship to try and eat Luigi but you have to launch these barrel bombs into his mouth in order to get him out of the floor. His final phase is even more radical since he controls an entire side of the pirate ship and tilts it his way to eat Luigi. It perfectly blends the pirate and shark tropes of the boss and I was hyped from beginning to end. In a game where there are already some great boss fights, this was the best one by far! Now put Captain Fishhook in Mario Kart cowards!

Following on from Thursdays review of green "default" monster energy. I present my White Monster Energy preview.


I enjoy the texture of the can. Its fun to touch. I wonder if its easier to grip then a normal can in extreme situations.

The can = 4/5 stars

Yup

Granted I just bought a pair of WF-1000MX3s and I’m returning them because of connection issues and discomfort. If the airpods didn’t sound like shit for $250 I’d give them a shot.
That's very good to know because so far the BT sections are the only thing I don't like.
Yeah, originally I tried waiting out the time fall and being as stealthy as possible which was super frustrating but you don’t really need to do that. As long as you’re aware of your surroundings and have enough stamina you’re good.

The only challenge in this game is traversal.

The only thing I can say about Death Stranding is that it kind of feels wild seeing a new Hideo Kojima game get so much marketing when watching American football. Sure it’s Sony’s next big console exclusive, but I’m honestly not sure how much of a crossover there is for college football/NFL fans and Kojima fans.

Also Abby would hate this thread.

everything I've read about the complaints re: BTs and human combat make it sound like the game has two speeds: completely frictionless and unchallenging, and slows/stops the proceedings with something that isn't really "challenging" but just wastes your time

Control is an amazing video game and i'm sad I tuned out all the discourse when it came out. Was Jeff the only one who enjoyed it all the way through? I recall Vinny and Abby getting bored with it.

I don't think anyone except Jeff has been really enthusiastic about Control though?
Still my goty.cx this year. Damn I want that DLC. Loved the notes, the Darling tapes, Threshold Kids. Everything about the lore was just amazing.

Just got to chapter 3 of DS
I feel like I'm already starting to see the cracks forming in this game.

Yeah you can run past the bts but that makes it even more annoying somehow. Bike gets stuck, get off get some shit knocked loose. Run away. Run back, maybe throw a grenade.

I just go to the point near the mid-end of the game where

you find all the documents recounting the events in Ordinary

and even that little nugget of backstory would be an engrossing movie.

He was my 2nd favorite boss. My favorite is a couple more after him, but he was awesome.
