I know, I know :cry:
People think "queue" is just "q" followed by 4 silent letters.

But those letters are not silent.

They're just waiting their turn.

It is a handheld at the end of the day, just one with a relatively high end tablet processor in it. It won't get as many games and can't do graphics as well as the other consoles but the ones that do come out on it (especially first party) don't look terrible. Also the joycons work as wii remotes so i wouldn't count out Skyward Sword being released on it. However, i've heard it is a bit shit.

God of War. PS4.

Every now and then a game comes ali ng which raises all tyoes of new standards and causes ones jaw to drop in astonishment at its technical marvel.

This is that.



Almost certainly going to sweep up game awards in categories of graphics, sound design, score, direction and best game. One of the most amazing things about this is that the game, unless you die, is all done in one shot with no cuts, transitioning seamlessly from gameplay to set pieces. The game does a great job of making you feel like a powerful badass with combat inspired by the best game ever (that's Dark Souls). At a time when I'm looking at the half-finished games in my stack over the last year and I'm questioning whether I even like gaming any more, GoW has rekindled my love of gaming and I have every intention of finishing this to completion.

World of Warships.
I've been playing this for over a year, and totally love it. Free to play, and although there are some in-game purchases, it's not pay to win.

So have I. I like it small amounts. Never paid for anything which does reflect in your scores. The other horses in the stable are not worth riding.

Playing Hollow Knight on the Switch. This game actually made me put Zelda on the back burner. It's that good.

XCOM 2: War of the Chosen. Best game I've played in ages. Totally engrossing.

I actually have this game now, and a Nintendo Switch as well. But I need a larger TV than the one I've currently got in order to fully appreciate Breath of the Wild, and to be able to play it properly, as my eyesight is not so good. For instance, there's no way I'd be able to read the dialogue on the screen at present.
Anyway, came across this video. It's funny, but not really all that funny. I was absolutely mesmerised by the animation, however, and that's why I post it here. This is most certainly one of the most astonishingly beautiful games I've ever seen.

People think "queue" is just "q" followed by 4 silent letters.

But those letters are not silent.

I'm playing Sekiro, which isn't as hard as the weak scrubs are saying, and DiRT Rally 2.0, which is harder than that.
