^^^ They just need to do it rather than trolling the fans! Kiryu would be a much better fit than Noctis or Negan...MUCH better. The Dragon of Dojima fighting style would fit into Tekken so well, and there are heaps of Heat actions and moves from the Rush/Beast modes to draw on.

Some bad news - Microsoft are doing away with the year-long subscriptions for Gold - they've already vanished from the online store - and the current "remaining" Gold subscriptions will cost about £100 - almost the same as Game Pass...

That Fall Guys game coming out looks pretty fun, gives me serious Takeshi’s Castle vibes. I think it’s free on PS+ too!

No Makoto, huh? Feels like a strange decision to me but I’m happy to see Dan in there. Don’t they mention a ‘new mechanic’ is going to be introduced too?

^^^ I do enjoy SFV (all the DLC and update strategies from Capcom aside!) but whenever I haven't played it for a while, I end up in the training mode re-teaching myself the mechanics. It's certainly the least intuitive Street Fighter I have ever played.

Compare that to my recent re-playing of Alpha 3 (which can still be MORE than technical enough) and it's night and day. The only thing missing from that game are the command lists (supposedly done to sell strategy guides? That's what I heard anyway...).

So that Genshin Impact game seems like it might be a good option if you’re done with Breath of the Wild? It looks pretty gorgeous, the character switching seems fun and it overall just seems like a pleasant time

...It’s also gacha, so you need to grind or pay for a chance at getting characters and weapons :?

I can still put up a good fight using knowledge from my Street Fighter 2 days, but I can't even get through some of the tutorials on SF5 - some moves feel so difficult to pull off. It's a great game with a ton of depth, but I feel it's not a friend to those who just want to dip in and out occasionally.

Well my ps4 decided to get stuck in safe mode last night. Updated the firmware as told via internet but didn't work. Didn't have time to try rebuilding the database last night so going to try tonight after I've checked the hardrive, which I think may be the problem.
