Underhero is a fun platforming RPG that puts players in the boots of a faceless mook attempting to subvert his evil overlord. It’s quite good indeed!
We’ve somehow made it to 200 episodes of this weekly gibberish! We raise a glass of Fantarito and Cyberpunk beer, we go round the twist, we reminisce, and we talk about some of our favorite games of the past four years.

This came out around the same time Nintendo started charging for online play, and while the blame’s on Capcom, the fact this was promoted in a Nintendo Direct makes the timing absolutely awful.
At least on Switch, the Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle is an online disaster.
Nintendo is a ridiculous company that cannot simply do something simple. There’s always a complication, a caveat, a catch. Even cloud saving, which every other platform has nailed, must be subject to Nintendo’s arcane rulings.
So, cloud saves will only work for SOME Nintendo Switch games, not ALL of them. The ones excluded are pretty heavy hitters too. Looks like another Nintendo Move to me!
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is fine. It’s simply okay, in a mundane way. While the previous games in the “reboot” continuity were great action adventures, this is predominantly a swimming simulator with a boring plot and dull backdrop.
Also, the direction this game takes, with its lacking combat and focus on restrictive exploration, is a little baffling.
2K Games has called premium currency and microtransactions an “unfortunate reality” in gaming.
Overwatch and NBA 2K19 had to remove loot boxes in Belgium. EA refuses to remove loot boxes from FIFA. The “AAA” excuses and justifications are flying thick and fast, and 2K especially is showing its royal rump.
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is pretty good. Square Enix have put out a pretty good JRPG that, shockingly, doesn’t need to reinvent itself with every sequel.
While I’m not quite as in love with it as some critics, I do enjoy it a lot. Like most DQ games, it’s simply a pleasant ride.
The Duke is back! Amiel H’ardcore reads some lovely hate mail from a Shenmue lover who won’t stand by while someone criticizes the Dreamcast masterpiece!
Seriously, don’t mess with someone who has 100 Platinum Trophies and is probably good at Bloodborne!
