If anyone is into single player content then Soul Calibur 6 might be worth a punt. 

Cheers for that, just picked it up for a fiver on PC.

The event was a massive success! The original target of £100 (we're all small streamers) was thrashed immediately, so we upped it to £200, then £300, then £500. The current amount is £1052.99

It turns out he's got no willy.

The Wreckfest implementation of the DualSense controller is quite cool. You feel tension in the brakes and things tighten up as the car gets damaged. The best thing though is the subtle jolts as you change gear.

I already had Wreckfest on PC but it’s much better and more accessible on a console/TV and the controller support is a nice addition.

It looks great, too.

Dualsense? Is that PS4 or PS5?

It's PS5, the best thing about it so far is the controller.

Not to be "that guy" but from the PS5 I've managed to play at work/round a friend's house, the controller was my least favourite thing. It feels long, and the adaptive triggers are a disaster. They're similar to the 3DS' 3D feature in that you try it for 5 minutes and go "eh that's cool but let's turn it off now". In some cases it feels like garbage. Most people I know who got hold of a PS5 also said they turn it off for most games. Alongside that, it turns out having your triggers fight back against you is also a red carpet invite to faults and breaks, with a few already returned to our place for it and my mate's R2 spring being fucked about a month after he got it.
The vibration felt pretty cool on Astro Bot but it's not night and day from the PS4 or in some cases even the Switch. I also find the PS Button tacky looking and cheap feeling.

Of the two, I'd certainly pip for the Xbox controller which took what PS1-4 did and went with "if it's not broke, don't fix it" and just made a nicer feeling version of what they had.

No it’s the best feature and it’s by far the biggest difference maker between PlayStation and Xbox(not including games.) The biggest problem I have with it is it feels like it might have a shorter shelf life than the DS4. I don’t understand the people turning it off, it’s great.

I adore the PS5 controller. Astro was a revelation and I certainly wouldn't turn off the features. I think they work really well and I can't wait to see what how other games use the technology.

Just booted up Xenoblade Chronicles X to make sure my Wii U is still working and was surprised to see that people are still playing it.

Problem with XCX is that it's one of those games I can't just jump back into after a long break, so now I'm torn over starting from scratch.

The series went on a serious slump though with SC4 & 5.

6 is a definite return to form imo.

Some Anime fighters are slso  loaded with content. The Blazblue series (the sequels anyway) in particular is great if you can tolerate the fan service and ridiculousness of it all. 

4 wasn't bad, but 5 was odd with going off in a different direction and sacking off some of the more popular characters. The AI felt far too "input reading" as well. Nowhere near as bad as the MK games, but still pretty annoying.

It looks like the new version of Virtua Fighter 5 has been gimped if you're an offline player, they've stripped away the Quest mode. Interestingly it's called e-Sports Edition or something very similar in Japan, very much an online only affair.

Oh what the fuck. I was getting really excited to jump into VF on PS Plus this week; it was the very first fighting series that I fell in love with as a kid but I'm still a button-bashing loser when it comes to fighting non-AI opponents. Utter bollocks to it all.

I'm crossing my fingers for a Switch port as a Wii U is one of the few consoles I dont own.

Xenoblade Chronicles 1 and 2 were amazing.

It’s actually a really good time to pick up a Wii U, if you can justify the expense. The first party games, including Xenoblade Chronicles X, are all available at a reasonable price right now, but I can’t see that lasting long as the console is gradually phased out. I’ll go out on a limb and say there’s a good chance some of these titles will gain value over time, much as we’ve seen happen with the DS back catalogue.

If you’re looking for a good indie Pokémon knock-off, try Nexomon: Extinction. I’m playing it on Switch, but it’s available on other consoles and Steam, I believe. It’s available fairly cheaply, the story is pretty strong and strays away from the ‘collect badges and beat gym leaders’ formulae, and the script is genuinely funny, and made me laugh out loud quite a few times. It’s well worth your time.

I started playing The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing last night; I'd never heard of it, but the whole series was dirt cheap on GOG so I thought I'd give it a go. 

It has sod all to do with the Dracula story, so the Van Helsing branding was a bit disappointing, but it's basically a blatant carbon copy rip-off of Diablo. Luckily I bloody love Diablo.
