@cowell It is *so* good though. The only real problem it has had has been with low player numbers on Steam up to date - hopefully being on Xbox Game Pass will help with that.

@smelly it does seem weirdly divisive. Tom obviously wasnít a fan upon release, while I donít really think too much of the other DKC games but absolutely adore this.

@SupremeAC Variety set seems a bit of a bargain to me considering all you get with it. The giant robot set, on the other hand, does seem more than a bit much considering the end result (the game it comes with isn't all that either).

@richardiox The review's coming next week. Reviews do have the word 'review' in the headline! But you're right that they can get lost on the homepage, and that's something we're looking to fix.

Platinum never loses its lustre

@Mr.Spo Vanquish is the all-time GOAT! Infinite Space is an odd one - itís great, but also I think development was mostly done by Nudemaker which is why it stands out from the rest of Platinumís work. I did ask if they were going to branch out from making purely action games, and they said itís something they wanted to do in the future.

@Faldrath yeah, that's a fair point and they are well replicated in RaceRoom (I love the ADAC stuff), but I guess my point was this is in a proper standalone game. And also Blancpain GT is *amazing*.

@Bush_Killa-73 It just got lost in the churn, unfortunately - I think I was away at TGS when it came out, and it was a fairly busy time for new releases as well. I did play it later in the year and enjoyed it - I like what Kylotonn's doing with the licence.

@VirtuaIceMan I'm an idiot for ignoring them - I just had a look back on YouTube and the TT course is really good on it! I think this is the first time we've had a laser-scanned one, though. That's my excuse for my ignorance, anyway.

@UncleLou I think it's just with a standard controller, really. There was a handlebar controller I remember from years ago but it wasn't all that - you've got to worry about weight transfer if you're playing without certain assists (and it's more fun if you do) which is hard to do on something like that.

Metal Gear Survive review - surprisingly enjoyable horror spin-off

@George-Roper yeah thatís all fair enough and I do agree with your argument - I hope I bought enough of the MT stuff to light for you to be able to make your own decision

@George-Roper itís really really dumb and I donít want to defend it at all - I didnít actually notice it though until it was pointed out to me, and itís not the kind of game youíd have multiple saves for on one account. Why they decided to lock that off I have no idea - if it wasnít for that and the other MT stuff this might have got a recommended. Thereís some good stuff in there that will likely get lost in the noise that was always going to surround the first post-Koj Metal Gear.

@mostro It's a really tricky one and previously I thought that the two should be kept very much apart, but I do also think it's totally valid to examine the two together if it helps you have a better understanding of the work itself. I think Bertie's done that here, and left plenty of space for people to be able to come to their own conclusions.

@up_the_ante I think in this instance, given Kingdom Come's take on history, the two are kind of linked?

@RawShark yeah, it's a point worth making and there are certainly issues there. I think it's in starker relief here given Kingdom Come's allusions to authenticity. The Witcher, whether rightly or wrongly, can use its fantasy setting as an excuse.

Fe review - uneven indie from EA Originals

@elfergos I had originally put 'indie' in inverted commas as I'm not a fan of its appropriation by big business. Zoink, the developer, is an independent studio though, so it can kind of be justified.
