Divorce! (Or life, don't talk to me about life)

In advance of the wedding of the year (again gratz Pete, definitely looking forward to it), it's probably a good idea to lay out where I'm at, save having to explain it on the day.

So as it goes Jayne and I have separated. Not gonna lie, wasn't my choice and I'm a pretty good distance from happy about the whole deal. Never the less, I'm not distraught either. I get why it's gone the way it has and tbh there's not a damn thing I'd change, so there it is.

Yakuza Zero

I've been playing this recently and enjoying it. The Yakuza series is a fairly long one mostly released on playstation up to its 6th game with a multitude of spinoffs, recently they've been remastering the original games and releasing them on PS4 and PC.

Dead Cells

This is a game that has been in "Early Access" for a while, but was realeased in full early on this month...most notably (for me) on the Switch. It's been descibed a "Rogue-lite", "Metroid-vania" and "Dark Souls-esque". It's not the sort of game I normally gravitate to, however I'd seen a couple of reviews, and also some real-world gameplay footage (notably Eurogamers "Lets Play"), who tend to be on a skill/reaction level to myself.

Devlog #17 - Juice in Release 23

Still unsure if I should keep going with this. It is kind of fun but really limited. I think the next step is to add a butt-tonne of content and a questing system. I can see how that will work but it's a lot of work to do and I don't want to sink any more time if it's just not fun.

I'd appreciate some more feedback on whether some of the concerns you had on how fun it is to move the Cloudship around and shoot etc. Is it still a pain in the arse?

Download the release here.

Thanks again, chaps!

I've been watching these through rather than going out INTO THE SUN LIKE. He does go on a bit but it's lively and he uses the app with a smoothness that I find compelling. Here's part 3 of the series I linked above:
