I bought my first MacBook Pro last year purely for the fact that it wasn't that much more expensive than a similarly priced Windows laptop and it will still be worth something in 2 to 3 years ago so upgrading will be reasonable.

It runs a surprising amount of my Stream library too.

Eldewrito final version is out now. If you liked Halo 3 MP, this is as good as it gets.

Apparently Bullet Witch has just been released on Windows. So, yeah, if you've been waiting 11 years, it's about to pay off.

Loves us all since 2008

I googled it, but I got nothing but Bayonetta screenshots.

Bullet Witch is...an experience to say the least.
Don't go in expecting something totally solid. There's potential there for sure but a lot went sadly untapped on the 360.

From what I hear though the PC version isn't just a straight port, they've actually tweaked it a bit and added in things like a dash move (which was badly needed)

I loved Bullet Witch back then, got all achievements (which is basically doing all difficulties, including Hell difficulty... Which isn't too bad). It does boil down to knowing where checkpoints are and just rush through and only kill what is needed but I had about 15hours gameplay of it, so I can't really complain.

Might be worth picking up if you see it for cheap, but I don't think I'll play through it again.

Also new PC here, woohoo....and all I play is Golf with your Friends.

I wouldn't want them if they were so boring they played golf though.

We could play it together, you sillies. :P

But nah I had few games of it and it's pretty good mini golf game. Fairly buggy at times but that makes it rather fun and hilarious, in text chat. I assume voice chat can be hoot.

It's only £5 too, no bad really

I've definitely played Bullet Witch through a couple of times but I can't remember a thing about it. I don't even remember how it played or what it looked like.

Free Steam key for Mini Ninjas on Square Enix store when the following code is used at checkout: minininjas

Played it for a bit, a few things:

-Delete legalscreen_eu.zip and legalscreen_us.zip in the movie folder of the game's location to skip startup logos (cheers pcgamingwiki!)
-Speaking of...as per this note on the pcgamingwiki entry, I was getting constant microstuttering until I unplugged my USB keyboard.
-The game was crashing for me on a pre-title loading screen until I turned off NVidia DSR on my 4k TV. Had the same problem with Nier Automata, so strange :/

Aside from weird technical quirks, it seems super charming :)

It looks pretty good for its age, I reckon. If it has the blistering sense of speed I remember it having I'd be for it.

Been noticing a weird trend of posts over on RPS recently...

https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2018/0 ... ode-right/

https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2018/0 ... he-fences/

https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2018/0 ... oming-dlc/

https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2018/0 ... -on-steam/

https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2018/0 ... nto-alpha/

They're obviously a PC games news site and should therefore report PC gaming news, but a lot of recent posts have been about the release of obscure, free-to-play looking games that are seemingly just Steam fodder. I didn't really think much of it after the first few, but it seems to be a daily occurrence now.

Tres conspiratorial, but I wonder if they now have daily post targets after the company that bought them out got bought out by a bigger company and now all games media comes from that company which is a company that needs to attract as many users as possible and make lots of money?

Perhaps.
