Night in the Woods (Switch)

I've chatted a little bit about this in the "Currently playing" thread. It has characters that are interesting and genuine alongside a compelling storyline that I loved playing through. It ain't gonna suit all tastes but, for me, it's a complete gem. [10]

I played this one a while back. For me I found it took ages to get going introducing characters and setting up the groundwork, and then the end was lacklustre for me:

WOOooOOoo! Hot Fuzz! Spooky!


But halfway to 3/5's of the way through there was an hour or two where everything just clicked and for that brief period it was great. Outside of that it was just alright for me.

Just finished this tonight as well, loved it, great little game and i’m glad I waited to play it on Switch.

Question for you, what character did you spend the most time with? I tended to spend all the opportunities with Bea, she had quite a sad life and I felt really sorry for her.

I think I probs spent slightly more time with Gregg, but I tried to speak with everyone each day.

So many "real-life" situations that kicked me right in the feels a fews times.

Doesn't who you spend the most time with determine who you are with on the sofa at the end? Who was Mae with in that scene? I spent the most time with Bea although I tried to split it evenly when I played

I didn't know that! Uhm... I'm trying to think... yeah, Gregg was on the sofa whilst Bea was in the bed/computer room and Angus was in the kitchen.

SteamWorld Dig 2 8/10.

I liked it a lot, but, and it's an odd but, it didn't have the same impact on me as SteamWorld Dig. The game is clearly a step up and is a better game, but I think that playing the first on wing nothing at all about it, surprised me so highlighted the quality to me more, where as with 2 I knew what to expect. Anyway great game and should be played by all.

Anyone else felt this way about a sequel? It's better, but there's some reason that the predecessor somehow holds a finder place for you?

South Park - The Stick of Truth (Xbox One)

Actually played this game before on PC but never finished it. Bought The Fractured But Whole on Xbox One and it came with a free download of Stick of Truth so I thought, why not give it another go?

Overall thought it was a great game. Humour was fantastic, and the gameplay was solid. It wasn't particularly difficult, but still each battle felt very satisfying to win. The world also felt pretty authentically South Park, and the style/dialogue was awesome. It's a shame the difficulty wasn't higher, main story was quite short and there wasn't actually that much to do. Still very fun though.

8/10

Wolfenstein II - 9/10

Frenetic action, great set pieces, some really fun story elements and all round simply a great continuation of the series. Not quite as good as the first but still better than most other FPS games out there, only major criticism would be the Submarine hub-level which was a pain to navigate but you don't spend a great deal of time on it so it's hardly game breaking.

Shelter 2 - 7/10

Absolutely beautiful, much like the first and similar to the original it is an emotional rollercoaster. Unfortunately I feel that with the decision to make it more open world and add the freedom to explore it lost some of the direction of the original game. Still a great experience though.

What remains of Edith Finch - 10/10

I've played a fair few 'walking simulators' including Dear Esther and Gone Home and had some enjoyment from them but I've always found the way they tell their story to be fairly dull and this is where 'What Remains of Edith Finch' really shines. The varied sections and styles of gameplay all work brilliantly and are so much more inventive than reading a letter, or hearing a sound clip. The game as a whole is incredibly creative and I loved the setting and story, I didn't quite feel the ending reached a satisfying conclusion but regardless, it's an absolutely amazing experience.

Quake (PC)

I play through this at least once every year. Such a marvellous game on so many levels and as playable now as when it was first released. One of the true greats of gaming.

10/10

The Norwood Suite - PC

Fundamentally this is a walking simulator, but that is an extremely reductive approach to such a bizarre and enthralling game. It is a profoundly surreal and Lynchian experience and a more developed followup to Off-Peak, a weird and much shorter game which is free on steam. You arrive at a hotel and end up doing errands for the guests, however there are several sub-plots and a weird sense of unease which, coupled with the Dadaist decor, structure and imagery of the hotel makes it dreamlike and utterly unique.

I found it fascinating and amazing, but am glad that it's quite short - any longer and it would have started to outstay its welcome. I'm putting this in the same bracket as Deadly Premonition, Leviathan: The Old City and the original Off Peak - completely off the wall games which explore what you can really do with the medium when you stop trying to rebuild reality and push the boundaries of what the medium can do.

However I can absolutely see why it could be called nonsensical wanky bollocks, so take my review with a massive pinch of salt.

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

Deus Ex Mankind Divided - 9/10

Loved this. I think it is better than the first one. The level design is slightly better than the first game, I feel. The new powers seem cool, but I'll get to use them all when I do a kill everything in sight run. Prague was wonderful as a hub. There's quite a bit to explore there, and the sidequests were really fun (the cat woman quest :lol: ).

I kind of just ends though. That is the only thing I can fire against it. And the fact that we probably won't see a sequel is kind of saddening.

GTA V

It was alright. Too many mundane tasks, too much waiting, weirdly strict in a lot of missions. I get why - it's for the realism, but I just didn't find it that fun. I liked the characters a lot though. Having three different protagonists was a cool idea.

I might go back to it now and again as there's still much I have yet to explore. So might warm to it.

Warriors All-Stars - PS4

Only finished one play through and there are multiple endings for different characters which I'll look at another time. As spin offs go, though, All-Stars is a fun game if a little simplistic. The huge list of characters, multiple endings and collectables certainly gives it a lot of replay value.

7/10

Journey - 9/10

Relaxing, beautiful, mesmeric and epic. Will definitely be revisiting in the future.

RiME 7/10

The gameplay consisting mostly of puzzles is fairly relaxed and the visual style, music and story are beautiful. The game itself feels a little too slight to propel it into the essential category; but I enjoyed the brief time spent in its world.

Knack 2

Despite the detractors (who the majority I suspect never played it), I enjoyed Knack and was surprised when a sequel sneaked out. Knack 2 is more of the same, doesn't feel technically any better (although it has been a few years since I played the original) but it does have HDR and the ability to unlock the frame rate so I'm guessing it probably is a bit better, particularly for those who have a Pro (which I don't). With the exception of 2 points where I got stuck (and was ridiculously obvious when I looked at a play through of the chapters on youtube :roll: ), I enjoyed every minute of this game. I like the Knack character and his ability (for those who don't know, Knack grows from about 2 foot 6 to 30 feet and can shrink back down again at will) and enjoyed the collectables (unlike most games, every collectable contributes towards Knack's abilities in some way). Overall, it is just a fun game and I just need to decide now whether to play through again (starting with the abilities I've amassed) so I can get all of the collectables I missed, or trade it in at CEX.

The Last Window (DS)

Big improvement on Hotel Dusk for me - at no point did I feel like I was hoplelessly wandering around trying to trigger the next part of the story.
Great visual and sound design and the dialogue was just the right amount of cheesy for the tone of the game. Strongly recommend it to anyone who digs visual novels and walking simulators. The extra level of interaction makes it just that bit more rewarding for me (similar to Phoenix Wright or Danganronpa).
