Best smaller game I played this year were Shakedown Hawaii and Void Bastards.

Both games are very unique, while also being throwbacks to older, long gone, genres.

Shakedown Hawaii is a throwback to the old 2D GTA top down style. But it also feels very modern.

Void Bastards is really reminiscent of System Shock, and though I'm not a huge fan of these randomized kind of games, I easily consider it one of my favourite games of the year. Just love its style.

"Oi Spunky McFuckface" - I enjoyed that. A bit of loss what to do once everything's maxed, but its one I'll revisit for sure.

I see...

I'd only look at getting this if the pulled all the original voice actors in from the original game (the US version that is). And of course, they kept the same script writers as well. They don't make them like that anymore.

I love how people are always complaining that the PS4 controller doesn't work well in large hands. I'm about 6' 3 and have some big ass hands, and it's just fine. I actually prefer it over the Xbox controller. Although I can use either... I also like the Switch Pro controller as well. I think all three are decent controllers. Probably the best controllers all 3 have ever made.

You have ass hands? Can you twerk them at the same time? That's some pretty evocative imagery you're conjuring up there...

Dunno about laughable. I mean its much more laughable to have AA battery powered controller at this day and age...

Ahem...

Yes its pathetic using AA batteries – changing them all the time sucks. That’s why I’ve got mine wired up to a car battery – it lasts for a good couple of years before I need to change it.

Swear the majority of game pass are old gen stuff, tried it a few months ago and was pretty crap to be honest. How many pc gamers have used play anywhere?

You'll probably find some newer stuff has dropped in since you last had a peek, like Void Bastards and Outer Wilds this week. It'll continue to improve over time I guess...

LOL! We wouldn't even be having this conversation if Xbox was doing 24 hr check ins on games. In fact, you morons would have defended the shit.

Anyway, it's good Australia is doing this, even though it's one of the worst places in the world to buy video games. So there's that.

It was alright when I was there :/

Between the extremely high prices and banned games with censored violence, it's garbage.

I can't recollect missing out on anything or paying too much. The salaries over their tend to be pretty decent, so I guess you don't notice it...

Been quite looking forward to picking this up on gamepass (where I think it dropped today...). I'll give it a bang on the weekend.
