I can still probably recite about 97% of The Young Ones by heart . . . massively influential show, also got me into Motorhead
You Suck at Parking is a really cool game but I feel like it often crosses the line that separates hilarious misfortune and infuriating frustration. I'm having a lot of fun 80 percent of the time and the other 20 I want to throw my controller away and uninstall it. The multiplayer adds another whole layer of chaos in a good sense but sadly there is no way to party up and play with friends (although it's announced as "coming soon" in an update). The other thing that kinda sucks is that they went with a battle pass for cosmetics in a game that is already paid (although it is on GamePass) and frankly this game is not big enough to have a battle pass. I'd still love to play it with a group once that's possible.
Hob's Barrow feels awesome a couple of hours in. It's slowly making me feel more and more invested in Thomasina's story, the art and the voice acting are great, and for me it's just about as much of a horror game as I can handle.
Madre de Dios! Es el pollo diablo!
After playing You Suck at Parking, I agree with all that Pink Stripes says about it. I'll likely play some more as I had fun and also try out multiplayer.
I'll definitely check out Beacon Pines, it sounds very 'Twin Peaks'!
Dome Keeper looks fun. I did try out the demo for a few minutes a while ago and planned to go back, unfortunately, they removed it with the full release. On my wishlist for later.
Currently playing: HITMAN 3, Death Stranding, Eliza, Empire of Sin, Old World
