Crash Bandicoot 4 on the Switch - hilarious fun, playing it with my daughter and it’s a proper laugh.

Currently playing Dark Souls 3, this is my third From Software game and it's definitely the easiest one so far. Bloodborne and Elden Ring were far harder than this seems.
I couldn't do DS3, ended up giving up. I'm never touching Elden Ring cus I'm useless at these games.

I could kinda do Bloodborne. I can't even do fucking Demon Souls.

I struggled with Elden Ring to begin with, then I just got all the lightest equipment, ditched the shield and played it like Bloodborne. Also it was easy summoning cooperators when you get stuck because of how many people there are playing it.

I did the same from the start with Dark Souls 3, without cooperators as it seems there is no one playing that anymore!

Got the platinum in Horizon Forbidden West on Monday. Only took me 75 hours.

What a game though, loved it. I'm not sure there's been a more likeable PlayStation mascot then Aloy. Loved the twists, loved fighting the big fuck off fuckers. 9.8/10 game.

Anyone getting the new improved PS Plus? I think I am going for the middle tier initially, none of the older games listed really appeal to me.

I think so, I hopefully got signed up to PS Now before they closed that loophole so might have it cheap

Apparently Sony are trying to buy Steam.

In it's current form the Xbox game pass is way better than Sony's but that could change things if they integrate PS with steam somehow.

I must admit this dick waving contest from Microsoft/Sony is good for the consumer, consoles are greatly priced as they are and the amount of games you can get nowadays from just a subscription is really good.

The fact that on the Sony one I can play Returnal, Demon Souls and Death Stranding which I was going to buy anyway makes it ridiculous value for me.

Here’s a first look at FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH, the sequel to 2020’s critically-acclaimed FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE.

This next standalone chapter in the FINAL FANTASY VII remake trilogy will launch next Winter.

Finally jumped on the Elden Ring bandwagon yesterday. Only about 4 hours in but very cool game though hard as fuck!

It's one of my favourite games ever. I got the platinum and still couldn't stop playing it, I have put in almost 400hrs.

I bought the middle tier of the new PS Plus and have downloaded Returnal, hopefully that will hold my attention to give me an Elden Ring break until the DLC comes out.

Oh its awesome no doubt, just extremely hard; for me at least. I never played Dark Souls and the other games they did but I knew they are notorious for making hard games. Thought the Ninja Gaiden ones were tough but nothing on this. Is interesting and fun to find ways to beat the bosses, but can get frustrating also lol.

Oh yeah, definitely. There is no shame in summoning help though, the game actively encourages it. Also making a bleed build makes the game much easier I found.

Played about 2 hours of Returnal so far.

Died every 3 minutes.
I played a bit, tried co op and some American guy turned up who then handed the controller to his kid who kept saying things like "hey team mate, jump if you are excited", so I turned it off.

Returnal is incredibly frustrating, I am so sick of the first area after being shoved back there every time you die. I could handle it if you were stronger each run, but you aren't and you lose everything.

I finally did the first boss the other night, feels more difficult than the Souls games because you're relying on the areas to spawn you good stuff.

Yeah, I managed the first boss, bit the second area is mental. I have got what I think might be quite far through that area but then a certain type of enemy spawns with a sword and pretty much insta kills me, so right back to the beginning of the first area I go.

God knows how long a run to complete it would be.
