The promo art I’ve seen, everyone looks like Wallace from Wallace and Gromit. Even the women.

Yeah the art style doesn't look like it has the same charm as the original Theme Hospital which is one of the things that has made me skip on the game.

I played a bit but got quickly bored.

Was you ever a fan of Theme Hospital? It's pretty much that. Pretty fun game imo. Funny too.

I did, I really enjoyed it back in the day. I just found it too easy.

I didn't play the original Theme Hospital (had Theme Park on the Saturn though) but bought Two Point a few months ago, really should play it at some point I suppose.

I'm currently playing Modern Warfare campaign and it's pretty good so far. I'm on Veteran difficulty but is it just me that I feel it's easier than the original one (the remastered one).

Didn't realise this was on Game Pass, will probably give it a go at some point now I know that!

Brave on PS3. I’m playing this for trophies, getting close to the platinum now. It’s not a bad game actually but beating it on the hardest setting (which you need to do) was bloody tough. It’s supposed to be a kids game.

Play Paw Patrol: On A Roll.

That's a kids game.

Or if you want to be bored out of your mind, play that new Jumanji game. Reviews weren't kind to that one.

How bad is it? I will play virtually owt as long as it’s not a broken, awful mess.

As above, how bad is it? Boring I can stand but broken can get in the sea.

From what I remember of the reviews I read, the enemy AI was pretty much non-existant, so you'd spend the game going from arena to arena just beating enemies up and not getting hit at all.

Graveyard Keeper: Switch - Had this about a week or so and can't stop playing it. It's essentially Stardew Valley with a reskin but different enough to make it worthwhile. It's got a much more developed skill tree with an interesting mechanic tied to either building or researching items. It's not perfect by a long way as there are a few QOL improvements that could be made (recipe tracking would be great so I don't have to walk to the crafting point each time I forget what I'm supposed to be collecting) but there is a real depth to it. It's certainly better than so of the other Stardew clones (My Life at Portia for example) but maybe not quite as good as Stardew as the characters are quite a charming.

And it's on Gamepass if you fancy trying it out.

I fired up my N64 emulator recently and have been re-playing some old favourites.

Diddy Kong Racing
I don't know how many times I've completed this game...it's so good. :wub:
I've completed everything apart from the final WizPig race and unlocking TT.

F-Zero X
Again, I've lost count of how many times I've completed this. On the latest run I've done all cups on all difficulties, all with Captain Falcon. I just have Queen and King on Master left to do.

Goldeneye
I think I'm enjoying this more now than I did back when I first played it...it still holds up well I reckon, and the objective-based missions and classic levels are still really enjoyable.
I've done everything on Agent, and have one level to do on Secret Agent (Caverns). I'm surprised by how much fun it is still.
