    Last night - I'm not sure what exactly prompted it, but I got an overwhelming urge to buy and play A Short Hike at last, a game which I've had an eye on for a good few months.

    I made my most careless, impulsive purchase in memory - don't even know if the game was on sale, don't particularly care - and got my recently-purchased 8BitDo SN30 Pro set up with my laptop, with a little pain. (Ultimately I just needed to trust Steam's Switch Pro Controller integration and connect it in Switch mode rather than the normal PC mode, which gives it an Xbox button layout that I wasn't really a fan of.)

    Then I actually, uh, played the game. It's pretty much exactly what I'd imagined so far. Genuinely funny dialogue, cute characters, lovely visual style and kinda fun movement as well. The atmosphere is what I really wanted from this game and it's really delivering in that regard. Super looking forward to continuing it.

    Played Animal Crossing on the Switch, played Kingdom Hearts 2 on the PS4 and bought and downloaded Star Wars Battlefront II.

    Completed A Short Hike! I've been absolutely hooked on it all week. It's nothing huge that I can really go and recommend to everyone as a must-play, but... I think it's a game that'll stay with me for a while to come.

    I took part in my first ever Splatfest over the weekend! I was Team Ketchup. It was a lot of fun, and might tempt me to try more of the online multiplayer in Splatoon 2 this week, particularly as I've now reached level 10 and can game modes which aren't turf wars.

    I've become a little obsessed recently with Mighty Switch Force. Fantastic soundtrack, and a super enjoyable experience if you like puzzle platformers. Great fun.

    I've often watched videogame presentations and seen games and been like "eh this isn't for me, but I bet some people are going wild over it". Well, today, I was 'some people' with Goodbye Volcano High in the PS5 reveal showcase - it's got really, mm, mixed reception from the bulk of the stream's audience, to put it gently.

    The livestream was cool! Bunch of games I'm probably never gonna play, but a really strong showing all the same!

    Well, here's a funny story. At last year's BronyScot I picked up an inkling amiibo from Cex in Glasgow. Only I didn't realise it was an amiibo until recently, as I just figured it was a cute little model I could put on display in my room. Well, today I decided to try and scan it into Splatoon 2, and I got a little hairclip. The best thing though was getting to take a photo of the amiibo with my female inkling character. Seeing them both do the "Stay Fresh!" pose was so adorable.
