Ys 8

Finished it a while ago but was attempting to get the platinum. Gave up on it because I was rushing through everything (zones, conversations, etc) and it was no longer fun to play. But up until today it was brilliant. The combat was up there with Ys Origin but everything else was massively expanded up with tonnes of stuff to keep the player occupied whilst still managing to feel like a Ys game.

Up there with the likes Yakuza 0, Nier Automata, Persona 5, Horizon Zero Dawn / 10.

Broforce

Got somewhat addicted to this for a few days. A lot of fun. The constant change of heroes and interactive level design mean you always have to be on your toes. But this can also make it frustrating as you need to learn how how each character works. Death is sudden and often unpredictable as a chain of events explode out of control around you but good checkpointing means its never that punishing. It can be frustrating to reach certain fights or situations with a hero thats move set makes it harder. A few times in boss fights I might as well have just died. Its fast and bloody and the campaign asks you to try new things. Till towards the end when I found it started to run out of gas. It just became more and more a case of things exploding at you. Exploding things that spawn things that explode as they explode as things that charge/fly at you and explode. Its exhilarating when it comes together but when it doesn't click it can be rather tedious case of dying over and over. A few of the boss fights could do with removing an element or two. There are some cool missions designed for specific characters and I really like these. Wish every hero had one. I 100% then normal campaign then had a play about with the hard one. That day I 100% that to. Its certainly harder but in a way that felt fair and being able to replay levels with a bit more knowledge of both the level and heroes was cool. But at points the random elements were still both a blessing and a curse.

Was a little buggy from time to time. Music stopped in boss fights and sometimes I did things I'm not sure I was suppose to. Mainly in boss fights. The humour and little gameplay touches involving the various versions of action heroes is wonderful even if I don't know who some are. A shame a few feel more useless then others, at least in very specific situations.

Looking forward to trying this online with Pedz and Jazzem at somepoint. strawberry float knows how chaotic it will be. :lol: Cheers Pedz. :wub:

8/10

One day folk will try it out and your Ys army will start growing, Saint!

We haven’t heard your final Bloodborne verdict yet! If Broforce was awarded an [8] then I’m anticipating great things for ‘borne :) . Uh... possibly.

Yakuza 0 on PS4. This is a strong contender for the best game I’ve played all year. I finished it after about 115 hours with just over 90% completion and not once did I get bored. Whether it was the ever twisting main plot or some silly side quest like helping shoot a music video or helping a dominatrix learn how punish people there was seldom a dull moment. From the lengthy real estate sub plot to the hostess club to the plethora of other distractions there was always something to do. The combat in the game was absolute joy too with some of the heat actions making me genuinely laugh out loud.

Being a newcomer to the series I think this was the perfect starting point and while on the one hand I want to crack straight on with Kiwami next I can possibly see fatigue setting in so I think I’ll leave it for now besides I still have a few skills left to learn and the Amons to defeat :dread:

10/10 an absolute joy to play from start to finish!

American McGee’s Alice on PS3. The best words I can think of to describe this are “not awful”. The art style and story are great, the Chris Vrenna soundtrack is great but the game itself is kind of a janky mess. Who seriously thought it was a good idea to make a console style platform game on PC in the Quake 3 engine and lumber it with FPS controls? Had this been built from the ground up as a console game with a competent control scheme it has the potential to have been a great game. Playing it now I can’t understand how it reviewed so well at the time, the only negative review I’ve seen was from Edge who gave it 4/10... I don’t think it was quite that bad so I’m giving it 5/10

Resident Evil 7 (PS4). Not going to score this yet as I have mixed thoughts about it. Putting to one side the annoying overly long loading and one boss fight, I was really enjoying this until I got to about the last quarter of the game. When the game moved to the boat setting my interest level dropped, I wish they had made the house area bigger. It sort of improved after that but there wasn't a great deal more to come.

...and then the 2nd big problem, the game felt quite short. On the plus side by the time I get to the end of most games I am just playing them for the sake of completion, but for this, I wanted a bit more. I did play this over about 2 weeks, but total play time was only about 10 hours which feels quite short. I am interested in the DLC but might sell this off and then re-buy on the PC as I think it might get quite cheap (saw RE7 on CD Keys for just over £10 a week or so back).

Yes?
