Funny,but people forget how tongue in cheek Baldurs gate was.It was more of a tabletop simulator then an rpg.As in you could imagine a few neckbeards rolling dices and cracking wise somewhere behind the game.

Is anyone playing Slay the Spire?

It manages to be both difficult and addictive. I can't decide which one it excels at more.

Lets just say its addifficultive.
You may quote me on that.

Speaking of Baldur's Gate, that's coming to consoles soon I hear! I assume its a port of that enhanced edition on PC. A bunch of others too, including Planescape: Torment. Always wanted to give that a go, I got it for my ex-girlfriend many years ago and she loved it.

I'm halfway through Quake II on N64, really enjoying it! I played Quake back in the day but I never got round to the second one. I love all the modern trappings of current games, but sometimes I just want to pick up keys and vent guns without much thought. I don't even have to think about reloading weapons! I wish there were more modern games using the old id FPS formula, maybe there are some indie efforts I'm missing. John Romero's Sigil will provide more Doom when that comes out but it'd be nice to see some new IP in the genre.

The control setup I've got is interesting, I'm using my right hand on the middle prong to control the stick to aim and trigger to shoot, and my left hand on the left prong to use the dpad to move forward, back and strafe and my left index finger on the left shoulder button to jump. Quake-guy pushes switches etc just by coming into contact so the only odd thing I have to do is changing weapons (pressing the A and B buttons, by swinging over my right thumb), but my bisected queen facehugger hands make that pretty easy.

So ultimately it feels almost modern, moving with the left and aiming and shooting with the right. I've never, ever held an N64 pad like this and now I'm wondering whether more FPS games support it!

Also shout-out to San Francisco Rush on the N64, a deeply flawed, utterly broken game that I have to force friends to play with me because I inexplicably love it.

Apex Legends - fun, even if I haven't managed to kill anyone in the 2 games I played today. Probably a good job there's no voice yet (not really needed thanks to their 'ping' bit which reminds me of a souped up BF2 spotter system) as people I play with would just be screaming at me, I'm sure. May it be silent forever, always discord or teamspeak if you actually want to talk to people

Rick and Morty VR - meh. Thought I was getting a steal for £12 on PSN Store, but it’s probably the weakest VR experience so far.  The story or comedy or whatever is really slowed down by the menial tasks set by Rick, and the VR space isn’t well thought out. Despite clearing a wide area to play in the game still sent me bumping into shelves and couches etc. Not one for fans of VR, or Rick and Morty.

There is free DLC available for the mighty Resident Evil 2. Three new story missions featuring NPC's from the game.

Cheers
