Yoshi's Wooly World

9/10.

Loved it, loved the climax as well. The only reason it misses out on a point for me is some of the collectables are just too damn cryptic to find. Especially the stupid stamps.

How are you playing all of these? I would love to go back and play some of the classic Megadrive games of my youth, but I find emulation a bit daunting :oops:

An emulator called Fusion. It's so simple to use and emulates almost every SG-1000, Master System, Game Gear, Mega Drive, Mega CD and 32X game nigh on perfectly. Individual games can be downloaded in seconds or you can download complete collections in one archive which obviously take a little longer.

I got hold of Kega Fusion last night and you're both right, how easy was that?! Literally drag and drop a game in and voila, instant childhood memories :mrgreen: :toot:

Played Sol-Deace, Aladdin, Jurassic Park, Streets of Rage 2 and Sonic 2 :wub:

So much nostalgia, my wife kept asking me why I was making excited noises :lol:

Thanks for your help fellas :D

You were never meant to be able to make all three houses - it's a deliberate reference to the (also capcom) oracle games, and how originally there were going to be three games that all linked together but they reduced it to just ages/seasons.

Resi 7 8/10
Id probably have given this a 9 except for a couple of issues. The boss fights being my #1 problem. Not only are they just not fun, theyre very poorly designed boss fights for an FPS. The controls are slow, clunky and sluggish at the best of times, and forcing you to run/duck/turn/shoot at high speed against the bosses is an absolute chore and just highlights how badly designed the bosses themselves are from a gameplay point of view. There is next to no indication that what youre doing is even hurting the bosses half the time. So it feels like you're just wasting ammo and "doing it wrong". Also while i didn't hate the final couple of hours like some people did, it did feel a bit disjointed, and when you finally make it back to the Bakers house for the very end, its a relief to be back on familiar territory and just shows how less enjoyable everything from the ship to the mines is by comparison to the house.

But having said that, it was a great game overall. A true return to form and to survival horror. The Bakers, while a bit stereotypical psycho redneck, were awesome. The Molded i actually liked, they were pretty strawberry floating freaky, tho i genuinely did wish Zombies turned up at some point. The writing was pure cheese as you'd expect. I hope it sells well and Capcom keep making proper survival horror Resi games. It definitely bodes well for REmake 2 if we ever get it.

Gears Of War 4

Well, this was crap. I'm not really sure why, I enjoyed the previous three games in the series and was expecting this to be a mindless bit of fun. What I got was a badly made mess of a game.

Now, I'm not the worlds most skilled gamer, but I'm pretty far from the worst. But strawberry float me if this wasn't painfully difficult in places (on Hardcore, not even the hardest difficulty). Generally speaking you'd come into an area where there would be five-ten bad guys, then you'd progress a little bit more and there would be another five-ten, only this time with a big bad guy with them. Of course, the big bad guy has a weapon which often kills you in one shot. If you die, it's back to the beginning of this area (usually before a cut-scene or repeating dialogue, checkpointing is appalling in this). I would find myself playing areas over and over, which led to me trying to rush through bits, and getting killed even more frequently.

This constant repetition just exacerbates the games flaws, of which there are many. The game's opening act is awful, shooting robot enemies that aren't any fun at all to kill. I was reminded of Halo 5, which I also detested. Things improve slightly after meeting the 'new' bad guys, the Swarm. Of course, these are just re-skinned Locusts, but I didn't really mind that. Sadly the game has so few ideas that that's pretty much the game from thereon out, a couple of crappy on-rails sections and a boss fight that damn near made me chalkitdown the disc into pieces. And then the game just ends, with no fanfare, no drama, nothing. It was like they just got bored of making it.

I get it, people will be all like 'Git gud' or whatever the hilarious phrase is, but when you're getting killed through no fault of your own (the Dropshot quickly became my least favourite thing in the game) and getting put back to fight the same enemies again it just becomes tiresome. That was my main feeling throughout Gears Of War 4, not anger or frustration, but boredom. Genuinely wasn't expecting that at all.

4/10

One other note - I know this will not apply to the majority of people here, but the Achievements in this game can strawberry float off. 300 of the 1000G available can only be unlocked if you 're-up' (get to level 100) ten times. Someone should mention to them that this requires no skill whatsoever, just a ridiculous amount of time. Something that I'm not prepared to give this game one more minute of.

Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers on NES. Played through this as a kid and loved it and while it still holds up well it's just not quite as good as I remember it being. I think I need to play through it again without save states as I kinda breezed through it using them. 7/10

The beauty of this game was the two player mode. It was incredibly stupid fun. Picking your partner up and chucking them into something never got old.

I remember the first levels music track to this day.

It's definitely all about the co-op.

I want a spiritual sequel with the box hiding mechanic

Gunstar Heroes - 8/10

Very good game, I managed to glitch it quite a bit and it is very difficult if you don't get the right weapon comp, but I finished it using fixed mode and the homing laser, because that gooseberry fool is OP as hell. Final boss was very cool.

I played this when I was younger and never beat the the 7 form boss so beating it finally and then the game was great!

Kirby Robobobo - 3DS

Image/10

Sick game and the final part was incredible. When Kirby did the thing, manly tears flew from my eyes of pure unadulterated joy. Completely unexpected and completely boss as all hell.

Resident Evil 7 - 8/10

Great game - felt fresh and new whilst still retaining the classic Resi vibe, and very, very polished.


At risk of sounding like a troll, I went back for another play through of The Last Guardian, in case I missed something that made it several people's GOTY. I figured, having played through it once and being more familiar with the mechanics, a second play through might streamline the game and result in a more enjoyable experience. But no, it's still woefully ass-fuckingly broken and I stick by my original score - 5/10.

Gone Home - PC

Like Life is Strange, this is a game I've heard a lot of polarised opinions about it without having experienced it myself; it is either the most emotive and tear-jerking example of gaming at the current best of interactive storytelling or its "muh SJW simulator/not a game." I got the code free from someone on here and thought I'd find out for myself.

Its certainly the best walking simulator, in that you have to actually interact with objects and examine them, do some light puzzle solving, find keys and so on, whereas in games like Dear Esther and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture you wander about and have story exposition dumped on you until the credits roll and in the case of the latter have not learned anything significant that wasn't present at the outset. My problem with these games is that they don't tell a story well enough compared to most books or TV series, and aren't "gamey" enough to be interesting in a moment-to-moment way. I didn't gush over the admittedly well-written plot but found it interesting enough to push through the couple of hours it took to see it through to the end. For me this falls equidistant between the two camps which praise the game or deride it for daring to include women/women who play games/women who like other women as some sort of brainwashing "liberal agenda", it was an interesting experience but not one I will probably ever repeat. At least the labyrinthine house has gotten some extra mileage as a CSGO map.

7/10
Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

Ashita no Joe on SNES. This is a boxing game based on a manga series however it plays more like a typical fighting game albeit with pretty simple controls. It was alright although I'm not familiar with the source material. A little research suggests it actually had a pretty grim storyline which appears to be portrayed in the game to a degree.

Apparently there is a "real" ending to be found. Since the game just ended with credits for me I'm interested to see what this might be.

6/10

EDIT: Yeah, the real ending actually pretty grim especially for a game released in 1992.

Resident Evil VII (PSVR) - 9/10

First game I've completed in quite a while, the only other RE game I really like is 4, the originals (and remakes) are too fiddly, the games after 4 just plain bad.

There was a point in the middle of the game where I was trying to make sure I picked up as much as possible and played the game without VR while backtracking through areas...it really is like a completely different game in VR. On a flat screen the whole world suddenly becomes less foreboding, less intimidating and far more ordinary. I can't emphasise enough how much better the game is in VR.

I played the game through entirely in VR in one weekend - it was quite an experience. I do want to go through it again in 2D to see how it looks on my TV / on the Pro - but, I agree, it is a great experience in VR and really makes it much more intimidating, particularly in the Jack / Marguerite sections of the game.

The Last of Us & Left Behind (PS4 Pro) [9]

+ A take on the zombie outbreak scenario that somehow feels original and touching despite how hackneyed 'zombie apocalypse' stories have become.
+ Incredible atmospherics. There are some scenes in this I won't forget in a while... the journey through the collapsed sky scraper, the snow cabin / Winter sections of the game, the final scenes in Salt Lake.
+ Wonderful acting.
+ Very few games have gotten an emotional response from me - this is one of them. Such a wonderfully open-ended and sad end to the story
+ Love the music.
+ Brutal gameplay that still feels fresh. I remember watching gameplay captures of this when it was first announced and was dubious that the game would be this cinematic to play and yet it is. Every encounter is fluid and incredibly violent.

- In establishing the atmosphere, tension, characterisation and sense of place, the pacing in this game - as in other Naughty Dog games - can suffer as a result. With only the odd hour to play most evenings, sometimes a session can just involve exposition or moving from location to location. As wonderful as Naughty Dog are at story telling, some evenings I just want my games to be games.
- I bloody hope Ellie has learnt to swim in Part 2.

Dark Souls 3 (PS4)

Where to begin? I have very mixed feelings after completing this game as it constantly fluctuates between giving you highs and lows. I love the exploration side of this game but hate the "necessary" difficulty level. Why is it necessary? Because if you take it away, what you are left with is a fairly short game. Just think about each section - initially appearing quite vast but when you've completed it and think back, it was a fairly short trip between 'A' and 'B' but it only took you so long because of the difficulty level. This size of the game is just an illusion, but I see through you Dark Souls.
