@shiftysatchmo for me the ultimate goal is widescreen, so 3440x1440 @60fps (higher would be nice, but the resolution is the goal for me).

RE: PC Monitor's
I don’t play fps or shooter type games where frame rate is important. I go for eyecandy & will always go for an IPS over a equally priced & specced alternative. The colours are so much better and so to the angle of viewing. But this is because I place emphasis on picture as opposed to action.
RE: Review: Doki Doki Literature Club
@katsuo It’s soooooooooo good. But not as a anime dating sim. I took a chance on this based on a freind’s feedback & some deeper investigation. Just trying to increase the outreach of this game.
It’s like The Stanley Parable meshed with The Ring & one of the multitude of Visual Novels (I don’t play them so I couldn’t give an example).
I finished it last night & I was staring at the screen trying to get my brain back in order.

Doki Doki Literature Club – Review
Play this game, just play it.
I’m trying to not give much away, because it’s less of a game & more an experience.
The premise of the game is as a highschool student, your longtime friend & next-door neighbour guilts you into joining the Literature Club, at which point you realise there’s 4 cute girls for you to get to know & try to impress. You do so by “writing poems” which is a mini-game where you select words to place in the poem. You get 20 words to select on a rotation of choices & the selected words improve how much the different girls approve of your poem. They also share their poetry with you to which give you more insight into their personalities to allow you to better tailor your next poem… at least that’s the premise.
I’m not a fan of the Japanese Visual Novel or Dating Sim style games… but that’s just the facade that this game hides behind. What this game really is, is a mind-fuck of EPIC proportions.
It’s a psychological horror that tweaks the onscreen display during the game so that you stop & go “did I just see that?”. Also the background music is perfectly done, as it starts off all cutesy & chirpy, but as different things happen, you get dissonance & off key notes that aren’t always jarring… just noticeable.
As such the mature warning is to do with the themes that run through this game & the way it makes you deal with them. Definitely not for kids, but not because of what you’d first expect.
The game took me about 5hrs to finish the first full playthrough, but there’s definitely a alternate endings to unlock… which probably are dependent on how many times you play it.
I like games like this, they surprise & entertain. This is well worth the asking price and I’m likely to throw money towards the developer as a gesture of appreciation.
