  1. Drive My Car 

     

    Buried somewhere in the overlong running time (it’s longer than Dune!) and layers of pretentiousness was actually quite a moving story about dealing with grief and guilt. I was a lot better than the last film I saw based on a book by Murakami, Norwegian Wood. That one put me to sleep.

    I'd love an OLED model but the missus would kill me as i'm meant to be reserving my money for when she goes over on maternity next year :( I'm still buying games for my switch though so may just hold back on playing a select few for when I can get a new model.

    Trade your old one in for an OLED model with the same color joycons. That's what I did. 

     

  3. The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, Advance Wars 1+2 and Metroid Dread for Switch. Back 4 Blood and/or Aliens Fireteam for Playstation 4 to play co-op with friends. Really interested in Psychonauts 2, but I'm not buying anything else that comes out this year on my Playstation until I replace it with a PS5 (or Xbox series X) in 2022-2023.
     

  4. Finished Yakuza Kiwami 2. It was epic. Although the final fight was a bit underwhelming because I hoarded health items and weapons (like I do in every other Yakuza game).

     

    So, starting with Yakuza 1 on PS2 in 2006, I have now played every game in the Kiryu Kazuma Saga (0-6). 
     

    When I get an Xbox series X or PS5, I will continu with Judgment and Like a Dragon. 

  5. Getting near the end of Yakuza 2. Getting a bit burned out with the side activities, but the main story is great. Love Kaoru Sayama. Why didn't we get more of her in other games or even a spin-off (don't spoil me if she dies)? 

     

    Spoiler

    Also nice to spend time with Haruka again. But damn, that girl is tough. Kidnapped again, seeing a guy cut in half and thrown out of a window before her eyes. But she still want to go eat gyoza with Uncle Kiryu.

    I wouldn’t give up on Kiwami 2, I don’t remember it suffering from the same BS difficulty as some of the other earlier games in the series. Kiwami 2 got the full brand new Dragon Engine facelift, so pretty fucking modernised to the standards of 6 and Judgment (and I guess Yak:LaD?). Try it again.

    I didn’t know Kiwami 2 uses the same engine as 6. I loved that one! I will give it a try. 

  7. Oh boy, the Yakuza Kiwami games are really rough after playing Yakuza 0 and 6. Decided to give up on those.

     

    I’ve already played the whole series from Yakuza 0 to 6. Yakuza 1 and 2 I’ve played on the PS2. So storywise I’m not missing anything.

    Kiwami feels a bit too much like an HD remaster instead of a proper remake. It looks good (apart from the huge hands on the character models, what’s up with that?) but feels a bit dated. Quests are fetchy, animation a bit stiff.

    I think I am done with the Saga of Kiryu Kazuma. Time to move on to part 7. Or maybe Judgement. Is that a good one? I’ve never played a game outside of the main series.
