What games did you complete? 2020 Edition


Recommended Posts

29. Astrobot's Playroom (PS5) - Sony's in box demo of their next gen haptics is also just an excellent platform game. It looks and feels wonderful, Astro is adorable, and the game provides a surprising satisfying amount of scale, depth and challenge. The haptics are really good and it is heaped with PlayStation nostalgia. Possibly the most satisfying launch day game I've ever played and I loved it enough to get the platinum late last night. The next gen is here. - 9/10

20/11/2020 - Tetris Effect Connected (PC)

 

I'm hardly the best Tetris player in the world, and have yet to win a game of Tetris 99, but I still love the game in any form and this might be my favourite yet. It's basically Tetris in the style of Lumines, which automatically improves on the Lumines formula by being, well, Tetris.

 

I've only played through the Journey mode so there's plenty more to experience, not least the multiplayer modes, but I guess this is as "completed" as it gets. It plays a great game of Tetris, and I enjoyed all the music to some extent. Some were more pleasant to others, but even the weirder tracks worked well with the visuals and synesthetic tricks. It managed to get me into the same zone as Rez, and with music more to my liking.

 

My only criticism is that occasionally the themes could be a little distracting, making it that much harder to spot the best spots to quickly drop a shape. One in particular replaced the usual squares with cogs, but usually it would only be a quick effect that obscured things a little. It wasn't a big problem.

 

I really enjoyed my time with it. It's Tetris crossed with Lumines, and therefore great by default.

Well these are coming thick and fast this weekend! :D 

 

30. Bound (PS5) - I found this going through my PS Library deciding what to download to the new console and had been meaning to give it a try. Hmmm... its undoubtably a technical triumph and in places looks stunning, and the dance movement/animation is sublimely done. But I don't really dig voxel art as a style and gameplay wise it was all a bit dull. I sort of feel it falls half way between a walking sim and a platformer and does neither particularly well. In fact on the latter, I actively dislike games which generate 'difficulty' by just obscuring the thing you are trying to do with scenery and weird camera angles and this does that a lot. Net result is it left me a bit cold, especially given I'd played Journey less than 24 hours ago which is by far a better Santa Monica Studio game. Go play that instead. - 5/10

This was unexpectedly great. I got it for free as part of the Epic Store, thinking it would be little more than an interactive art piece, and while it's true that there's very little in terms of actual gameplay, the visuals and music combine to make a rather wondrous experience that, at times, is at least as enchanting as Journey, the game to which it owes its clearest debt. I played through at least half of its two hour running time with my two year-old son sat on my lap and he was as enraptured by it as I was. Seeing as normally he can only watch Paw Patrol or Thomas the Tank Engine for all of 15 minutes before getting bored, this game must be pretty special for him to sit there for the best part of an hour without asking me to change the channel. Even my wife, who came upstairs to see what we were both up to, thought it was beautiful.

 

I will say, however (without wanting to sound too smug), that it's the type of game where I imagine your enjoyment of it will be influenced strongly by how smoothly you can run it. I was lucky enough to play it on my OLED at about 100FPS with HDR turned on, and it was stunning; I know lots of people picked it up on Switch cheaply recently, and I'm not sure how it runs on that, but, in my opinion, it really is a game that deserves to be played on the big screen, at high settings and a fast frame rate.

Need for Speed: Payback


Maybe because it was free with PlayStation Plus during a time of unemployment and a lockdown. Or maybe, despite the game tripping itself up at times, it’s actually a fun arcade racer with plenty to do in a pretty big open world.
 

Either way, played about 40 hours of it, had a fair amount of fun, which I haven’t with a driving game since Burnout Paradise. That’s a superior game, but I enjoyed NFS: Payback’s throwaway fun.

31. Abzu (PS5) - Continuing the chilled Sony theme (and a bit like @Jamie John coincidently) my 4yo son and I decided to run through Abzu this morning as Mum was having a well deserved lie in. On my previous run through at the start of the year I was a little underwhelmed (especially compared to Journey) but I think I was perhaps being a bit harsh. It is a stunning game and my son engages with it fully and actually likes to swim around himself (despite his hands being way too small for the now bigger DualSense pad) and it stimulated a really positive conversation about looking after the ocean and helping out our fish friends when they were in trouble. I still don't quite put it in Journey's league but on reflection I am upping my score for it this time round. - 8/10

 

 

I'm really tempted to but a Switch Lite at Christmas so my boy can try and have a proper go at playing some games. He's really keen (we did some Bugsnax together earlier too) but he just can't reach the sticks and buttons on the full pads which makes it challenging.

Knights and bikes - lovely heartwarming co-op (plays well solo too) think the film Goonies crossed with Little Big Planet and Tearaway. Lovely game. My other half played the last quarter of the game along side me. She loved it.

 

Man of Medan - Interactive horror game think a David Gage style QTE type gameplay. Can be played on-line with each player influencing the others story. Enjoyed this but then enjoy a good interactive story type game. Plenty of scares and jumps.

Had this for ages but I've not really had a proper go on it until the last week or so - it really is a fantastic game, sooooo much to do, looks, sounds and feels ridiculously good.  NB - I'm as far away from being a petrolhead as it's possible to be (I don't drive and have no interest in cars whatsoever aside from playing them on a games console) so I appreciate that there will be a lot of detail in this game that goes completely over my head.

 

I think the main drawback here is that there's maybe too MUCH content.  When all icons are on the world map, it looks far too busy and I find it really difficult to work out which is the next race when I'm doing a championship.  When you throw in the seasonal playlists, the Horizon Story Modes, drift zones, speed traps, showcase events etc etc it's a very busy roster - oh and there are around 750 odd cars.....

 

But anyway - where I can't fault FH4 is the feel of the races, and the way you can team up with a friend and do pretty much everything co-op.  That's a brilliant feature in what is essentially a driving RPG, such is the scale of the map!

 

I'm in the middle of sorting a house move at the moment, but when I'm moved in and settled, I'll be treating myself to a Series X and new TV and I cannot WAIT to see what this looks like on that.

 

I got the Lego DLC the other day too - I'll give that a good go with my son over the next few days, but TBQH I don't really think this game NEEDS any extra content!

Finished running through the main story today. There are a load of sidequests and things that I could hunt out still to go, so plenty for the completionists amongst us, but I'm not one of them so am happy as is.

 

It's relatively challenging in places, and I suspect all those extra things are where the depth of the systems they've put in place shine, but the main story never gets too challenging. And I'm ok with that. It's enjoyable, simple nonsense.

 

But where the real pleasure sits is with the characters. They are wonderfully written and acted and the story that runs throughout is likely the most inclusive videogames going. It was Sesame Street levels of writing, and I thought it was endearing and brilliant. It all played out in a completely unexpected way, but that meant it ended on a high.

 

Whoever was in charge of the marketing on this needs a kick, because those early doors trailers were awful. It's laugh out loud funny, full of charm and I loved it.

Halo 4: Despite all the hostility to 343 I'd heard over the years, on playing this I found this a pretty faithful title. The snappier combat system is welcome after going back to 3 and finding it painfully slow, and it's a bit of a looker considering it's from 2012. The faithfulness even extends to replicating the usual Bungie examples of rushed development, with lots of copy and paste. The one big departure is the plot, which isn't really a great new direction, but mostly suffers from being rushed, with way too much stuff thrown at the player in quick succession, and boy you can tell these voice actors were never in the same room.

 

Now all of the MCC titles are out on PC and I've played most of them for the first time, the problem isn't any of them being deficient, they're all pretty good as self-contained games, it's just the franchise fatigue. Like God of War, they've spent too long coasting on a successful template and it's made them complacent, unlike God of War, the ambitious re-imagining they need never happened, and Infinite doesn't look like it either.

Despite enjoying all of the GTA titles and really looking forward to GTAV, I somehow never got around to playing it until now. I let the console versions pass me by in 2013, waited for the PC release to come down in price, while the next-gen versions got released and regularly updated with new online content, the next-next-gen versions got announced, and finally the PC game was given away for free on the Epic Store. No excuses now!

 

Rockstar's open world crime-em-up series has come such a long way since the grimy little top-down kill-fest that started it all. It has become a big, expensive, multi-million dollar franchise that takes hundreds of people years to put together. Recent iterations have struggled to bridge the gap between the crazy stuff you want to do as a player, and the ever-so-serious HBO drama that the writers clearly want to make. This is never more apparent than in cutscenes following crazy battles in which your character seemingly ignores the bullet holes riddled over his body. The three-character system is a really fun way to bring in some variety, give you different starting points around the map, and allow some of the crazier stuff to be handed over to the more 'deranged' character of Trevor, the only one of the three I was comfortable taking on a rampage of destruction.

 

I'd definitely recommend GTAV - in many ways, it's the game I wish GTAIV had been. GTAIV was criticised for its restrictive missions and the 'boxed-in' environment of Liberty City, and thankfully a lot of that has been addressed here. Los Santos and its surrounding rural areas are absolutely massive, and even the sky is no longer the limit to where you can go. One of my favourite memories of GTA: San Andreas on the PS2 was riding a dirt bike over rural hills, doing crazy jumps miles away from civilization, while listing to Billy Idol on the radio. Or stealing a plane, flying up into the mountains and seeing where I could land without blowing up. All that fun stuff is back in GTAV, and missions are more varied and fun too. They are still restrictive in terms of fail states and stopping you from getting around the rules but they don't seem quite so nonsensical anymore and you get some lenient checkpointing at least.

 

The big 'heist' missions are a good example of the game trying to expand its options to you as a player, while still sticking within certain scripted parameters. Then there's the whole economy aspect, letting you buy businesses around the city and earn regular income from them, and random mini-missions to protect them. The technology driving the game has advanced significantly, allowing seamless transitions between interiors and exteriors, and between gameplay and cutscenes.

 

If anything, the game world is just too bloody big! It's a massive, sprawling and incredibly impressive place to inhabit, but so much of my time was spent just driving to places, and although the car handling is great fun, after a while I was getting fatigued by the whole thing. This is a seriously long game; the story mode took me well over forty hours, and I've barely looked into the wealth of online content, nor finished finding all the tedious collectible junk. If you're the sort of person who loves to explore every nook and cranny for secrets, you could pretty much live in this game for years. Nevertheless, I'm just about done with it!

Interesting one this... I saw it mentioned recently on a blog about 'best walking simulators' and then stumbled across it in my PS+ collection so fired it up as a change of pace alongside Demon Souls and it has held my interest more than I thought it would...

 

32. Ether One (PS5) - The overarching theme of this is dementia and the treatment/effects of it, but the majority of the game is set in a traditional mining village on the Cornish coast and includes several other character stories woven throughout. Gameplay wise you have two options, one is the pure narrative/exploratory path which alongside the rural English village setting feels like a nod towards to the excellent Everybody's Gone to the Rapture. The other is to optionally undertake a range of surprisingly (and sometimes annoyingly) tricky environmental puzzles along the way to unlock the additional story details. In this mode it reminded me a lot of Myst/Riven from the 90s as it can be quite enigmatic and instead relies on hunting around for loose clues, experimentation and perseverance to solve sometimes complex multi-step challenges. I'd recommend the latter as I don't think it quite has the narrative chops to hold itself on just that element alone, but as a complete package I got surprisingly hooked on it and - with a little help from a guide to mop things up at the end - stuck with it for 12 hours to get the platinum trophy (meaning I've actually played this more than Demon Souls so far!). If you like slightly melancholic 'walking sims' and puzzle games I'd say it's worth giving a crack. - 7/10

Stories Untold

 

There's good and bad in this. I think the presentation, plotting and atmosphere are terrific but I was left cold by the text adventure stories which bookend the experience and offer no aha eureka moments. Chapters 2 and 3 are much better, with some clever puzzles, sound design and creepy moments.

Full Throttle


Just finished up on this last night. Last time I played this was way back on release for the PC. Really enjoyed the experience of going through this again. Love the humour and production quality in the this, the voice work is great. I do miss a good LucasArts adventure. Fairly short at around 5-10 hours too. Also got Day Of The Tentacle downloaded and made a start on that. Great to revisit the old games after all this time. There are games like this now but just lack a certain something that was always present in the LucasArts games.

I completed Gunstar Heroes for the first time last week and feeling like I could handle anything after that, no matter how shooty and mental, I want back to the laughably manic Contra: Hard Corps. Well I've only fucking done that too. About three hundred continues used, and obviously it was the Japanese version but I was quite honest about it and didn't save state my way through it like I'd feared. It's excellent.

 

I've said this before but it's weird that for two series so strongly identified with Nintendo, by far my favourite versions of Castlevania and Contra are the MegaDrive ones.

36. Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition (PC)

 

20201124215013_1.thumb.jpg.e18e10267a23aabef3ee6eae947c767e.jpg

 

I played this when it came out on the 360 but couldn't remember much about it. I think it cost me all of £1.50 in a Steam sale and I booted it up fully expecting to uninstall it again after 5 minutes. Surprisingly, however, I thought it was really good - sweary and stupid and crude, and perhaps outstaying its welcome by an hour or so, but often very fun, the weapons and animation - and general pugnaciousness of the whole experience - often putting me in mind of Doom 2016.

 

The central mechanic, which involves you killing enemies in interesting ways to score points, such as kicking them into giant cacti, for example, or lining up three in a row and then impaling them all with the same rocket-propelled drill, is what separates this from just another ultra-violent FPS. For the most part, it's very satisfying, encouraging you as it does to get creative with your murdering in a way that reminded me of a Platinum brawler. I'm surprised that no other FPS since this has come out (that I've played, anyway) has copied it. If anything, I think the devs could have doubled down on this sort of arcade mechanic and introduced things like combo meters, stage ratings and high scores, Devil May Cry style, but I suppose we'll never see a sequel now as it was such a commercial flop. Ah well.

 

Anyway, if you're looking for something mindless but gratifying to blast through over the course of a few evenings then you could do a lot worse.

29/11 Astrologaster (PC) Back in the 80's there was a game that was incredibly popular with my friends called Law of the West. The game was set in a small town. You played as the sheriff over the course of a week and you had to survive the week by chatting with the townsfolk. There wasn't much two it. A few screens depicting your guy from over the shoulder and conversation choices. The occasional shootout but mainly it was working out which conversation options to use to get information out of various people or talk them down. No adventure style puzzles here, you either made it to the end of the week or you died before the week was up. Sure, it might be fun to tell the doc he's an alcoholic but that can bite you later when you've been shot.

 

LawOfTheWest_Animation.gif

 

It's a simple game at it's core. Eventually this mechanic was used as a small part of larger games from The Secret of Monkey Island to Mass Effect but it really was Telltale Games that bought back games were the conversation was the game.

 

And here with Astrologaster we have perhaps the purest example of a modern version of this design. You play as fictional astrologer, aspirational doctor and conman Simon Forman, who on surviving the plaque of 1592 with the help of his star charts and strong water convinces himself that he is to be a great (if somewhat unconventional) doctor. And so hanging his shingle out front advertising his services as an astrologaster you get to advise his querents by "seeing what the stars have to say." It looks complicated at first but generally the charts give you two to three choices and your success comes down to active listening and sometimes luck.

The aim of the game is to gain enough favour with at least ten of your querents to gain letters of recommendation thus allowing you to circumvent your natural enemies the College of Physicians. This proves somewhat easy at first with many case solved by common sense and basic medical knowledge. It becomes more complicated when dealing with telling patients what they need to hear rather than what they want to hear, or with dealing with some of the queries that have nothing to do with medicine as your reputation grows. (Questions like "Is my wife cheating on me" or "where will the Spanish treasure fleet be at this time and place" or "will I get the position of Bishopric of Salisbury"). It also doesn't help that Simon's knowledge is based around 1600's medicine (herbs and leaches feature a lot) and that he is an absolute knave at times who will think nothing of sleeping with his patients at the drop of a hat. 

 

Where this game shines is in the writing and the voice acting. Each character entrance is proceeded by a short choral piece with lyrics that tend towards jokes relying on wordplay and double entendre. And the voice acting is fantastic, with Simon Foreman in particular at times being an absurd craven conman full of self interest at some points but with a humanity and concern for his patients well being. Some of the jokes made me laugh, some made me groan but this was entertaining from start to finish despite being a game made up of a half dozen screens and papercraft puppets.

 

The icing on the cake was finding out through a quick search while writing this up that Simon Foreman was actually a real person who did practice in this way. Although the cases are fictional there's enough here that https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Forman could be considered spoiler territory.

If you have Microsoft game pass or purchased the Itch.io Black Lives Matter bundle earlier this year you can pretty much play this for free right now.

 

edit, there's an excellent essay here about Forman and why he might have been so popular in his time.

Quote

Astrologaster argues that what Forman gives his patients isn’t what he thinks he’s giving them. He takes care to cultivate a rapport with his patients. He listens to them describe their pain. He sympathizes when they describe their anxieties and fears. When he’s found a diagnosis, he explains his reasoning. Whether he’s accurate is beside the point. His patients trust him because he believes in both them and the arcane arts he's studied. Forman has bet his career on the idea that all of chaotic reality unfolds according to a plan. Every illness and misfortune he and his patients have suffered can be explained by the order of the stars. If his patients trust him to raise the curtain between themselves and the realm of celestial bodies, they will survive.

Disco Elysium: Fucking loved this, properly mainlined it. It's really well-written, often laugh out loud funny, self-aware and so on, and managing to avoid spoilers I didn't expect the magical realism, the weird alternate world, or the introduction of alternate metaphysics.

 

It's an RPG built around how people play RPGs, exploring every inch of the world, breaking into places, stealing their shit, trying to complete everything, and pokes fun at it all, but really works because hey, it knows you want to play that way and what if we designed the whole structure around this?

 

What if all of those qualities were the qualities of a character? What if all these irrelevant digressions ended up not being irrelevant, and all fed into the main plot and all got acknowledged, and all tied up excellently at the end? You'd have a very good and very satisfying RPG.

49) Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy - 3DS - 2013
Completed the story mode, all puzzles plus extra challenges (except daily puzzles) - 36 hours approx.

 

The sixth game in the series, the second one to be released on the 3DS, the third part of the second trilogy and a prequel to the first trilogy - and if you think that's confusing, you should see the puzzles!

The plot of The Azran Legacy revolves around a lost civilization, and although the format and gameplay is the same as previous games, there is a section in the middle where you are free to tackle five areas in any order you like as you search the world in your airship for ancient artifacts. The plot twists fell a bit flat for me this time; there wasn't anything outrageously revelatory like there has been in previous games, but it was fine. At the end, you get a linking narration that brings everything back to the start of the first game, and only then did I realise this whole trilogy had been a prequel! Fair enough, but who playing these games was honestly keeping track of Layton's lore? :huh:

The puzzles are the usual mix of logical thinking, multiple choice, shape matching, numerical puzzles, and so on (thankfully there are very few of those slidey-block puzzles that I hate). The main problem with Professor Layton games is the conflict between the puzzles and the narrative - each gets in the way of the other, so if you just want play some puzzles, you have to play through the story, and if you want to see where the story goes, you have to complete puzzles. It's always been an issue and that's still the case here.

 

However, in terms of technical performance, the game really shines. The stereoscopic 3D presentation is much improved, in both the animated cinematics and the diorama-like levels, and this is as fine a game as any to end my time with the 3DS console. I am now retiring the little box of magic, putting it into storage and moving on.

Fantastic game, building on the original enough to standalone but not enough to be a revolution. But it didn't need it. Everything here is tighter, and better. The story is fantastic and I had a tear in my eye at the final cutscene. 2 side missions to wrap up but this was everything I wanted from this game, it's prequel being a high contender for GOTG. Wonderful.

  Hide contents

 

Piczle Colors (Switch) - I've always enjoyed Picross style puzzles and this is a collection of colour based Picross puzzles, a couple of trickier ones by the last few levels but this was fairly straightforward. Iit comes in a triple pack with two line puzzle games which seem much harder to 100%. Nice to play in short bursts or on journeys though.

 

Gears 5 (Xbox One) - I nearly didn't play this as I wasn't that enamoured with Gears 4 but I'm glad I did as this felt like a big improvement on the series to me. There are a few rough edges and some annoying insta-kills,  especially for one boss that I've talked about in the main Gears 5 thread, but overall it is still a great cover shooter and additions worked well. I don't really play much online anymore but this has got me tempted to jump in with some of the extra modes. I imagine it would be an even better experience in co-op but I'm happy to move on to other games now. 

 

Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Now Climax (360/Xbox One) - This is a game I have half played through a few times and across different platforms so I finally decided to get to the end of the game when I saw it sitting in my games list. I had a save that was most the way though the first mode so I picked up from that, I haven't done all of the modes but I got to the end of the main story thread. It still plays as well as I remembered but it is a shame that they shortened four of the game modes for this release as the levels in their place aren't the best, if I had known before that they have been part restored on the PC version I'd have gone to that instead. Good pick up and put down game that has a lot more to it than you'd think if you want to complete it 100%.

 

Wandersong (PC) - I absolutely loved this. Yes it is easy to play through and some of the platforming sections are wonky as anything but the story and characters really stand out. Genuinely made me laugh in places and I made sure that I talked to everyone as often as I could to get as much out of it as I could. It has also some of the implements music through out in interesting and different ways. As I said earlier, it isn't really a challenging game and it won't be to everyone's tastes but I thought it was charming and definitely worth a look, especially as it is available on Gamepass now and you won't have to put too much time in to work out if it is for you or not.

 

Sayonara Wild Hearts (Switch) - After my first half hour with the game I was not that impressed and I stopped playing as I found the bike annoying to control. I went back to it and finished the rest in one sitting and loved it, the build up to the end was great and I could finally see what everyone had been raving about. One of the most stylish games I've played, it is wonderful when you are in full flow and I wish I hadn't cared so much about the rankings on my first playthrough. I'd definitely recommend trying to play it all in one sitting first time through. That said I still have some gripes with the game, such as the bike controls, and it feels like getting the gold ranks will be down more to trial and error/routing repetition rather than the rhythm-action game I was expecting.

 

Untitled Goose Game (Xbox One) - This was my second playthrough having already completed it on the Switch last year. Obviously it was a lot shorter to complete but it is still fun seeing the reactions to your antics, definitely going to go back and possibly even have a go at the timed challenges and extra 'to-do' bits which I haven't done before.

 

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (Switch) - Another game that I'd played before but it had been long enough that I had forgotten the main story line and most of the cases. I enjoyed it a lot more that I did first time through, not sure if it was down to knowing exactly what I was getting into/less hype but I found its flaws less annoying. Though don't get me wrong, it is still annoying that you have to do it in the exact order that the game wants you too or when you pick an option that should work but doesn't despite the underlying logic. Overall I'm looking forward to playing though the rest of the trilogy, I think I played 2 or 3 cases in the second before and none of the third game, definitely going to have break first so I don't get fatigued from the style.

 

Feb

 

Gris (PC) - I think this definitely suffered from going into this with all of the hype I had heard about it, which meant the first 30 minutes of  fell a bit flat for me and felt like fairly standard platform fare, abeit very beautifully made. I think this was definitely down to going in with having heard so much hype about it. Once it picked up though the pacing becomes much better and the game becomes more into its own. Its an easy game to play through and I liked the narrative but I don't feel a need to go back and get all of the collectables anytime soon.

 

Phoenix Wright: Justice for All (Switch) - I can see why I never finished this game the first time round when I played it, the first introduction case is easily the worst from the first two games with lots of inconsistencies and jumping logic. The story through the rest of the cases is good enough to make up for the slow start and, as after finishing the first, I'm looking forward to finishing the trilogy off. I've heard the second is the weakest game as well so hopefully Trials and Tribulations hits the ground running.

 

Outer Wilds (Xbox One X) - I don't think I could add anything to Pob's brilliant write up on page 3 and to say too much would be to spoil it, I have put some thoughts in the main game thread. I didn't find my self as attached to it as some but it really is unique experience and a game I'm very glad I played to the conclusion. 

 

Feb/March/Time has lost all meaning

 

Old Man's Journey (PC Gamepass) - Played this through after reading someone on this forum's thoughts on it, I could have sworn it was in this thread but I've looked through and can't find it again. Pleasant and short story with some very light puzzling, a nice way to spend 1.5 hours of downtime.

 

Children of Morta (PC/Xbox One) - Really enjoyed playing this through, the ranged characters are by far the best with Linda controlling more like a twin stick shooter. Towards the end you do get a bit overpowered but I liked it enough to get all of the achievements bar the co-op ones after beating the game. Looking forward to the promised DLC that should ramp up the challenge a bit.

 

Pikuniku (Xbox One) - What an odd game, but one I'm glad I played through. Another game where there isn't much challenge but it was a nice game to unwind with at the end of the day and just enjoy the journey. I wasn't a big enough fan to look out all of the extra bits and there are challenges you can't return to post game which is always a bugbear of mine. I'd love to find out what the co-op mode is like but that won't be happening anytime soon!

 

Ori and the Will of the Wisps (PC/Xbox One) - I've already written up my thoughts on this in the main thread, overall I enjoyed it but not as much as the first game.

 

April/May

 

Borderlands 2 + all DLC (PS4) - I've been playing this through on co-op with a friend for a while now and we finally got the Platinum Trophy, we finished all of the DLC on Ultimate Vault Hunter mode (I think)  but didn't quite get through the main story on UVHM as we got burned out on the game. It's a fun game to play through and this is especially true in co-op but it does tire after multiple play-throughs especially when we had to do some grinding to get the Platinum trophy. That said we just used those points as something to do while we talked about other things and had a catch up.

 

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel +all DLC (PS4) - We then jumped straight into the Pre-Sequel and had a lot of fun with it, again I think playing through in co-op makes a big difference to the experience and we happily played through most of it again in TVHM. We didn't bother trying to get the Platinum trophy for this though as the grind was just too much! Whoever thought having challenges linked to the equipment grinder was a good idea needs to be fired. Also it is worth mentioning that we had a ton of golden keys for both this and Borderlands 2 which helped reduce the grind in finding useful weapons a lot.

 

There is No Game (PC) - I downloaded this after reading @Unofficial Who's write up and I'm glad I did. A short, fun experience that can be downloaded for free, so why not give it a shot?

 

Defunct (PC) - Picked this up in one of the recent Xbox sales for 89p and while I got my money's worth I'm not sure I could recommend it to others. It has an interesting control scheme but while it can be fun to zip along in I didn't feel compelled to go back to it afterwards to try out other routes and some of the jumping is just annoying to do. It was a pleasant enough diversion and it is short but I'm not sure that is enough. I do feel though that the general mechanics could be refined and used to make a better game, I got the feeling of the downhill levels from Tony Hawk 1 in some sections and a tighter focus on that aspect would make me much more likely to go back to it.

 

Horace (PC) - I've written up my detailed thoughts in the main thread but overall I loved it, though it can be damn frustrating in parts. The writing is great though and if you are a retro games fan than you really should give it a try.

 

Alienation (PS4) - Another game I have played through in co-op and it works well with a few rough edges. It's a solid twin-stick shooter but I don't like that enemies sometimes hide behind the scenery or that they only have health bars once damaged, making it easy to overlook them. The fact you get different drops for each player is a nice touch and you can set the challenge as you like it. We've completed 1.5 playthroughs and we'll definitely go back to it, but we've taken a break to start on Diablo3. I'm looking forward to giving it a shot on single player to see how it is as well.

 

May/June/July - I need to remember to update these more often
 

Super Mario Maker 2 (Switch) - Finally got to the end of Story Mode but I still have a lot of the pre-built levels to finish. At it’s best it perfectly distills the Mario template, but there a re a few items I’d happily see the back of. The angry sun and the moving skull platforms that I found too slippery for two examples. I wish you could remap buttons as well, it would be a pain as it has so many different styles but not having the Run button on a trigger shouldn’t be an issue these days. Definitely be going back and trying out some user built levels.

 

What the Golf (Switch) - Kept me glued to my Switch until it had been 100% completed, wonderfully inventive and simply a lot of fun to play. Some of the challenges are more annoying than others though I’d recommend trying both control methods if you do get stuck. I used the touch controls for 95% of the game, and this seems the best way to play, but there are a few challenges that are made easier with the stick control.

 

Minecraft Dungeons (PC Gamepass) - Enjoyed it enough to play though once but I got bored by the repeat grind pretty quickly. It would have been nice to be able to just jump up a difficulty setting once you reach the end of the main quest. I have gone back today to play the new level which is more of the same really, I’m not sure how much more I’ll play of it though due to….

 

Diablo 3 - Eternal Collection (PS4) - I’ve completed this in that I have played through the main story to the end. I’m still putting a lot of time into the post-game content mainly due to playing co-op, we’ve started Season characters as well so that’ll be many more hours. There have been a few moments that have felt repetitive and I’m not sure I’d still be playing this as much if I was only playing solo. It is still fun trying out new builds though, something that isn’t really doable in Minecraft Dungeons.

 

Don't move (PC) - I got this as part of the huge Itch.io bundle. It is one of those procrastination games which takes place mainly on one screen and you have to work out how to unlock achievements and trophies to progress. Helped as something to mess around on when I needed a work distraction but I couldn’t recommend it.

 

Kids (Itch.io) Another game that was part of the Itch.io bundle. It’s a 30 minute art piece that has some nice moments but didn’t really resonate with me. Still it’s always good to try something a bit different and it filled a lunch break nicely.

 

428 Shibuya Scramble (PS4) - Loved this, though I am a big Zero Escape and Danganronpa fan so this was right up my street. Using real actors to tell the story  though photos works really well, in both world building and keeping the story going and the cast full commits leading to some of my favourite WTF endings ever. The extra content is a mixed bag, it would also have been good to know before you start it that one extra section is basically 1.5-2 hours of only reading.

 

Seasons after Fall (PS4) - Nominally a metrovania game but with no enemies to fight so it is all about the platforming and puzzling. There isn’t really much challenge and the jumping can feel off sometimes but it was a nice relaxing game as something to switch off to.

 

 

Some updates with more to come as I haven't done an update in a while:

 

Carrion (PC Gamepass) - Moving the monster around and killing everything that moves is fun in the most part and it doesn't outstay it's welcome. The lack of map meant that I gave up on trying to 100% it but it kept me coming back to the end.

 

The Touryst (PC Gamepass) - I played this in short game breaks which helped keep it fresh as I was playing through, nicely presented and the exploring is fun and I ended up 100% it. It isn't very challenging except for the trying to beat all the arcade games, proper relief on finally nailing the F-Zero clone. A good relaxing game, though the moving balls in that one area can fuck right off.

 

Glass Masquerade (Switch) - Simple puzzle game where you are rebuilding stained glass window designs like jigsaw puzzles. Something casual to switch off to in short downtime periods, I used the touch screen to play it and it would be a perfect phone game for 15-20 minutes journeys.


Aether (PC) - This is an old Edward McMillen game that is included on the Basement Collection where you navigate an alien between planets using its tongue as a propulsion mechanism. The whole thing is very slight and can be played through very quickly, about 15 minutes, which gives you enough time to play around with the movement controls. A nice distraction


Battletoads (PC Gamepass) - This has great production values but the gameplay is bang average.  It did enough to keep me going for one play through in very short bursts (drop in and out games have been making up a lot of my gaming time) but it was deleted as soon as it was finished with and I won't be returning to it, even for easy to get achievements.


A Way Out (PS4) - There is a lot to admire with this game in terms of scope and when it all works it is an interesting experience, but it really didn't stick the landing for me. I've put some more detailed thoughts (with big spoilers included) in the spoiler box below:

Spoiler

The ending really didn't work for me and I didn't like how it suddenly forced you to play the game differently without giving you any player agency.

 

e and my friend had stuck to the same characters through out and in the big chase sequence I was being chased as Leo while my friend was in the helicopter chasing as Vincent and after all we had been through my friend didn't take any shots at me in my escape. It speaks to the story that had been built that we wanted it to be an almost reluctant chase but sadly there is no option for that in the game. It didn't really make sense that Vincent was happy to go this mass killing spree and then just flipped character as the script needed him to. Even finding out Leo had nothing to do with his brother's murder didn't have any impact.

 

From there you end up having to go into a forced PvP gun section that ends up with only one man standing at the end. The additional problem here is that the game doesn't really do PvP very well so it ended up with the final shot getting me while in cover due to lag, giving a really un-satisfying ending to the the whole game. 


The Messenger (Xbox One Gamepass) - This was right up my alley and overall I really enjoyed it, some of the boss fights were too long though but there was a real satisfaction when you do take one down. There were enough frustrating bits (especially long traversal rooms over bottomless pits) that I didn't want to go back through it again to get all the seals but it is definitely worth giving the game ago.

Enchanting Mahjong Match (Switch)

 

knocked up 35 hours on this £2.49 purchase so when it comes to value for money this is magnificent. I'm a fan of mahjong/solitaire games and the bonus of revealing pictures of 'enchanting' ladies made this irresistible. To be fair there's less titillation here then the colour clashed breasts I discovered in Samantha Fox Strip Poker all those years ago but the game is so good it didn't really matter. It gets hard very quickly - please! - but I enjoyed every minute of it.

Ratchet and Clank (2016)

 

This has been sitting on my HD for a while. I've never played a Ratchet and Clank game, but glad I finally did. Was so nice to play through a really solidly designed, functioning game with no glitches. The breezy story and likeable characters, plus a wonderful cartoonish aesthetic made for a really enjoyable 20 hours or so. Also the right amount of collectables and some fun trophies to tick off for the platinum, which I did because LL Cool Platz, innit.

 

Still a long way from upgrading to a PS5 but at least when I eventually do Rift Apart should be out and will hopefully provide more amiable fun, and with extra whizzbangery.

50) Sonic the Hedgehog 2 - Megadrive - 1992 :lol:
Hardly a great achievement, it's my annual Sonic retro re-play. But a cred's a cred!
Sonic 2 has remained one of my favourite platformers, kicking up the speed and variety from Sonic 1, introducing a sidekick character, bringing in a two-player mode, 3D special stages, a spin-dash attack, Supersonic, Metal Sonic, an aeroplane level, the Death Egg. It's really quite something, and it's still loads of fun to play today. But it is a tiny bit buggy, in fact it's the most glitchy of all the Sonic games on the Megadrive and I often wonder how some of that got through Q&A. The graphic design style doesn't pop with that quirky weirdness that the first game had - there's an air of messy 'realness' to the level design, overly busy detailing, missing that simple checkboarding or flat shaded stylings of Sonic 1. Also Tails is a liability and should be shot into the sun. But apart from that, I think it's terrific and some of the music is still just incredible.

I took this opportunity to, once again, do a full commentated playthrough as I try to fill my YouTube channel with more interesting content.

Not the ecstatic moment I had hoped for my half-hundredth completed game of twenty-twenty, but worry not, I've got more...

 

51) Lifeless Planet - PC - 2014
This was one of those "that looks interesting, I'll put it on my Steam wishlist and then forget why I wanted it until the Epic Store gives it away six years later" games.
Lifeless Planet (Premier Edition) is a game I would describe as a 3D platformer crossed with a walking simulator, set over a series of vast alien landscapes. Its science-fiction premise is full of lofty and grand concepts and scenery, accompanied by a haunting musical score. The low gravity and space suit jet pack make for a floaty feeling of movement, and although you could argue it's intentional, much of the platforming feels awkward and clumsy. The Unity Engine stutters along on my ageing hardware, but it throws up some pretty nice scenery at times, and although the scant few cutscenes have a 'PS2-era' quality to them, the general presentation of the game is distinctly stylish, with blurring around the edges of the view and some lovely lighting effects. I have to give a bit of leeway to a game when I know it's been mostly put together on a tiny budget by one person, but that said, I think what's most appealing about this game is just how simple and uncomplicated it is. It initially gives the impression that you have to manage air supply and fuel levels, but these occasional shortages are entirely pre-scripted. All you need to do is run and jump through the levels and occasionally solve some simple puzzles, on a variety of desolate alien environments. It's lonely and haunting and weird in a way that good science-fiction is, and at times reminded me of Arrival, 2001Solaris, Interstellar, The Martian, and classic LucasArts adventure game The Dig. But it also has some schlocky B-movie stuff in there too, and some grand concepts and big set-pieces, all done on a budget. It annoyed me at points, but for the most part I quite enjoyed it, and it was all over in under five hours, which felt about right. Not quite a classic, but it's worth checking out.

As my first ever VR experience, this was pretty amazing, at least initially. The gameplay (essentially a light puzzle-platformer with occasional combat) is simplistic yet satisfying at the same time, but the game world itself is the real star of the show, especially some of the larger environments where the camera is zoomed out, providing an almost Ueda-like sense of scale. It might be because I'm not used to it much, but the 3D/VR effect succeeds in making certain aspects of the different stages almost photo-realistic, far more so than when you see them in 2D on a screen.

 

As a game in its own right, however, it's a pretty slight experience with a very abrupt ending. I played for 5 hours, getting most of the hidden scrolls and completing all of the DLC chapters (which I didn't realise were DLC chapters until afterwards), but I still couldn't help but feel a little short-changed, and that's despite buying the game when it was on sale. I'm all for short games, but the pacing in this felt off in the final act and the gameplay never truly develops beyond the first hour or so.

 

Having said that, for VR newbies, like me, it's still a game I'd definitely recommend, but maybe not for the £20.00 asking price.
