    It's now received an MA rating so next possibly next week we'll be able to build a family tree that stands straight and tall.

    Its great. I've put in a bunch of hours already.

    My only criticism is you can only do park goals once in the tour mode. Once it's done it's done for all characters, even though if you want to play another character you have to go through all the levels anyway to get the stat points. Yeah it's repetitive but that's what 100%ing Tony Hawk was all about for me.

    Otherwise, it's a perfect remastering. I tried Create a Park today and it's hard to get used to initially but it's impressive what you can do with it.

    Sweet I used to spend countless hours in create a park, bit of bummer about the character goals but probably take a while to finish anyway cause I have to keep giving the kids a go haha

    Played through Paper Mario and the Origami King. Really enjoyed it. Dialogue has plenty of charm, and the combat, while frustrating at first, is pretty satisfying once you work it out.

    Home test series against India, won the first test with Marnus cracking a double century, now he's backed up with twin tons in the second test, currently not out in the second innings, he must go on if the Aussies are any chance to win this one.

    Series tied 1-1, India won the second test by 7 wickets. Marnus's 160-odd in the second dig was sadly not enough.

    India have won the toss and batted in the 3rd test at a hot Adelaide, posting 396. Australia is plodding along, and will likely struggle to post a first innings lead, however with you-know-who still at the crease and looking like he's on the glory trail again, you just never know, both he and Trav hold the key:

    I agree.

    I got bored of it pretty quickly.

    But I also got bored of Horizon: Zero Dawn, which makes me a heathen, so...

    I played Horizon: Zero Dawn, got halfway into it, and lost interest.

    Then, a few years later, I tried to get back into it - but I just can't get past the halfway point of the game. It just doesn't grab me.

    But God Of War was worse - linear, and very repetitive.

    Agree

    Was super hyped and I just couldn't get into it, as you said very linear and the complex runes and striking/combo trees seemed a bit forced, I don't think they got the balance right and it got repetitive very fast.

    I agree.

    It was fun, but for me, it didn't pull me in, and make me want to keep playing.
