  1. 16 of the top 40 games in the UK are Nintendo games. At this point the UK is Nintendo land. For 4 years the UK looks like Japan 🇯🇵.


  2. Horizon Forbidden West is an amazing game with spectacular gameplay. I not only completed Horizon Forbidden West on PlayStation, i also got the platinum trophy. Im happy they updated the game and made it so Spector and Spector Prime machine scans are automatically added to your machine catalogue without automatically scanning them. Now everything is possible in one playthrough, like most my only real complaint was the training tutorials where you do specific combos and the arenas.

    Although i didn’t experience any game breaking bugs specifically, my PlayStation did overheat numerous times. The light bar turned solid red, I’ve read post where others have experienced the same thing “Only when playing Horizon Forbidden West” All other games work just fine.
    I know no one game can make it overheat, however even after doing all the trouble shooting techniques it continued to overheat. Once i got the platinum i immediately stopped playing. I think it’s Horizon itself and not a system software issue, because I’ve also seen post about Horizon Zero Dawn causing overheating.
