Mass effect Andromeda 8/10

Seems to have been shunned by most here and proclaimed to be the worst game ever..

It's not, it's still Mass effect and the core gameplay is still solid. The bugs are nowhere near as bad as people have made out, I played 77hrs to finish single player and I didn't encounter any game breaking bugs. At most there was half a dozen graphical glitches over those 77hrs, which isn't the disaster the internet wants you to think it is.

The story had a nice idea but they wasted it with lazy design, choosing to reuse races and politics from the trilogy rather than create a whole new galaxy. It reeks of lazy that they only introduce a few new species.

While mostly forgettable the story does get going by the end and it does link to the trilogy albeit vaguely. The side characters at first seem bland but by the end i had really warmed to them. Once you get past the fact it's not Garrus and co they are alright.

The fact it let me going till the end shows how much i enjoyed it, though equally I can understand why people might find it bland and boring in places. You get what you put into it, I love ME so I probably gave it a pass on some of its weaker aspects. If you go in determined to hate it then you probably will pick it apart.

I'm hopeful it does well enough to continue a new trilogy and that the Internet backlash doesn't kill it.

Crash Bandicoot 3 for PS1 on PS3. This was pretty good. It's a huge improvement over the previous two and outside a couple of time trials and one level very late in the game it was rarely as frustrating as the last two games. I've enjoyed playing through this trilogy but considering how annoying some parts of each game are I'm not in any rush to get the HD collection when it's released.

8/10

Also, like strawberry float am I doing all the gold, platinum and developers time trials.

Ha, I understand the platinum time trial targets are ridiculously tough, basically at speed running standards

Thimbleweed Park 9/10

Not only an amazing return to form for adventure games, but one of the best point & click adventure games ever.

I really enjoyed it, too. Went a bit 'Twin Peaks' towards the end.

Dark Souls 2: Scholar Of The First Sin

Someone in the DS2 thread described this game as being 'like Dark Souls, but a little bit worse in every way'. And that's kinda true I guess. The level design is a little worse, environments are a bit uninspired and some of the new game features (especially the new health degredation system) are bad design decisions.

But I didn't really care, because this game was awesome. In fact it's probably the game I've enjoyed the most on my Xbox One to date. There are few things in gaming as enjoyable as taking down a Dark Souls boss, and this game is chock full of them. And while they vary wildly in quality (Prowling Magus lol) there are enough fantastic encounters here to fill three games. Taking down Sir Alonne and Fume Knight are two of my favourite gaming moments EVER. I know this game has issues, I know it's considered the worst in the series, but I've now played it through twice and I just loved every moment*.

9/10

Also, The Walking Dead: Michonne

Telltale at its most tedious. Dull story, dull characters and short as hell. Shame, as the last game of these I played (Borderlands) was really good.

4/10.

*Four hours of grinding sunlight medals notwithstanding

Mega Man and Mega Man 2 on NES. The first game is decent but not great, without the password saves of the sequel I found it a bit of a chore to play and had to resort to using save states and the infamous pause glitch to kill bosses.

The sequel is a huge improvement and thanks to the password saves I beat it legitimately with only one continue because I ran out of ammo for the only weapon that harms the end boss. I could probably manage it without continuing too if I hadn't wasted my reserve tanks on the penultimate boss.

MM1 6/10 a decent start to the series but not a lot of fun to play nowadays.

MM2 7.5/10 this is where the series started getting good, hopefully 3 improves things even further.

With Mega Man I only used the pause glitch on the Yellow Devil and Only used save states to save before knocking it off. I am strawberry floating rubbish at it, though. Took me 5 hours in total to complete it. I really enjoyed it too, had great fun with it and only disliked IceMans stage at the end of the level and The Yellow Devil.

Full Throttle Remastered - 9/10

I have very fond memories of this game, having played through the original a number of times but it's probably 10 years or more since my last play through so it was great to revisit it. When I first saw the screenshots of the remaster I wasn't that impressed, looked pretty much how I remember it in my minds eye, but it's clear when switching between graphical modes just how much improvement has been made graphically since then. It looks absolutely fantastic and the art style has so much character.

The voice acting is brilliant and all the music contributes really well to the atmosphere of the game, I always preferred the puzzles in Full Throttle to many other adventure games as they were so much more logical rather than just being bizarre things found only by trial and error or using a guide. It's not perfect though, the action bits haven't aged brilliantly but they're only a very small portion of the game and still playable enough, whilst one part late on is a little grindy. It's also a little on the short side, admittedly I could remember most of the puzzles but I managed to complete it in less than 4 hours.

Still a wonderful game though and just as enjoyable now as it was over 20 years ago, cannot recommend it enough!

I don't think I would have had as much trouble with it if there was a password system in it. I mainly used save states upon beating a level in lieu of passwords.

Sniper Elite III (PS4) 7/10

+ Excellent sniping experience
+ Great sound
+ Interesting play areas
+ Good range of challenge; I played on Cadet (easy) level
- A bit of a weak ending cinematic

Terrific fun; I thoroughly enjoyed it.
