    @Graxlar_v3

    Yes, we are. Are you thinking of trading some exclusive 'mons?

    I had a go on VR Worlds last year. It is basically a tech demo - would be very stingy to count it against the challenge.

    Noice! Just give me a week or so to fill out my Pokédex. I'll look up which ones are exclusive and make sure I have spares of those ones.

    I know next to nothing about this version so I'm going in blind as usual.

    IN EAGLE FUCKING FLIGHT *YOU* ARE THE FUCKING EAGLE AND *YOU* SWOOP BY PEOPLE'S HEAD.

    Non-interactive experiences are for the dribblers and newbies. Not the hardcore "I wuz there" DK1 crew.

    These people don't listen to reason, Dombat. Monsters the lot of 'em.

    That sounds like my kind of game. Can you control various parts of the eagle, ie :

    a) Press x to open and close talons.

    b) Press o to open and close beak.

    c) Press square to do a crap.

    Is it possible to swoop down on things and then "close talons" to take them back to the chicks in the nest ?

    There's a scene featuring rumpy-pumpy with a nearby Owl which is a little awkward in the button mapping, but the rest of it is mainly just screaming through the city at high speeds weaving through obstacles and being an Eagley Badass.

    VR Worlds shouldn't count, imo. It is sold, yes, but it's still just 5 demo experiences to give people the buzz for what VR can do. It's pretty shit that it's not free frankly.

    I'm not personally that fussed as I've actually played all five demos on a friend's unit. But it is going to be somewhat sucky that I can't demo it to other people with the dribbler experiences. :)

    When you say rumpy pumpy do you mean fighting or sex ?

    OK I read it on wikipedia. It sounds quite good on the multiplayer.

    No holds barred bird on bird action. Filth.

    Multiplayer is amazing fun, but gotta warn you that it’s a wasteland out there so you’d be lucky to get a game.

    I have also picked up Pokémon Let’s Go : Pikachu and God of War for the PS4. Not sure if it counts in any way, shape or form, but I got a PS4 Pro. It might breath new life into some of the games on my pile of shame. I am sure that when it launched Tomb Raider and Titanfall 2 were amongst the games that were supposed to get a significant improvement from the Pro.

    THFourteen's 2018 Purchase List:

    1) Dragon Quest Builder (Decent - not completed)
    2) Labo (Meh - Not completed)
    3) BattleTech (GOTY - completed)
    4) FM Touch 18 (Decent - not completed)
    5) Destiny 2 (Great! ongoing)
    6) Octopath Traveller (Abandoned)
    7) Paw Patrol (for the boy)
    8) Pokemon Let’s Go (TBC)
    9) Torna (TBC)
    10)
    10+1) PES 2019 (not played much)
    10+2) FIFA 19 (Ace, already played for hours and hours)
    Updated list from me. One could argue that I’ve not picked my games very well at all given from my list of 7+2, 4 I could have done without. Plus double dipped on Diablo 3 which is currently unplayed.

    Paw Patrol is still not for me.

    I'm just marking time until the end of the year and meanwhile building up a massive list of games for next year. Gotta cut loose after this year of privation.

    I'm not sure I'll take part in the updated version next year. I've realised that I often don't finish games despite putting hours into them, and thus in my opinion getting my money's worth.

    For example this year I've absolutely loved Hollow Knight and am very pleased I bought it - but I'm not sure I'll ever finish it, I haven't played it for several weeks now
    and don't know if I can face returning to it.

    Similarly RDR2 - already put maybe 15-20 hours in and thoroughly enjoyed it, but the game is so massive (I'm probably 25% in maximum) and I can already feel my interest waning a little.

    Does double dipping not count?

    Actually, forget I asked. According to some versions of this thread, I'm on 2 and according to others 5. Both are way lower than 10 and regardless, this thread has stopped me impulse buying because it's on offer.

    Think I'll buy pokemon for my wife and smash brothers for the family and that's it. I thought about Civ, but I've enough time sinks with Diablo.

    Adjudication required: R-Type Dimensions EX on Switch. Have it digitally on the 360 but don’t have the console any more. Is it a double dip or a new game? :)

    Picked up Mario Odyssey in the eshop sale. I was planning on getting it at some stage this year and I waited till it reached a price I couldn't turn down.

    8.

    No! game number 8. :D

    It was just over £30 with the sale price and some eshop points I didn't know I had. I thought I'd have to settle for the £40-£45 it's generally held its price at.
