For me, 3 is by far the hardest MM game out of the 7 I've played. Though 9 is meant to be solid.

9 is one of the best ones. It might even be the best, and it is no slouch. It's probably a little easier than 3 though.

I was quite enjoying 9, but trying to do that last level all in one go was just bullshit. I'll go back to it one day.

I can't remember the last one. But I do remember having to play one Wily level over and over again because the boss was killed me repeatedly. It was the jelly boss, twin devil I think?

After buying the collection on PS4 I beat Mega Man 1 and 2 with little trouble, I’d even go so far as to say 2 is pretty easy but the Doc Robots in 3 just broke me. I’d only been using password saves until that point but even trying to cheese them with save states is hard.

Maybe I need to get cheeky with the passwords and give myself a load of reserve tanks.

Just look up their weaknesses, and abuse Rush Jet for the platforming sections. If you keep jumping when using it, it will use less energy. That wee trick makes the platforming sections in the game a bit trivial.

I found one fairly difficult to start with, tbh it was just ice man's stage and the yellow devil I had trouble with. 2 was really easy..3 takes the piss. 4 seems to be easier than 3 but I found it had some enemy placements that are really cheap, though maybe if I used more than the.mega buster through the stages I wouldn't find it as much as a problem, 5 is more like 4 and 6 is very easy, 7 seems pretty easy so far too. Not sure how many castles there are this time though.
Oh, and the.alow down in 3 is strawberry floating shocking.

Maize - PC

8/10

A point and click, first person game about 2 scientists who misinterpret a government order and try to create sentient corn. Its a relatively easy puzzle game, you wont get stuck, and its probably a bit overlong. The humour is oddly low key for a game about talking corn, but the ending sequence when everything comes together is absolutely glorious.

This strawberry floating ending song is so good, its more enjoyable if you know the games story, but its still the best end credits song since Still Alive

Just finished Life is Strange: Before the Storm. I quite enjoyed it but not as much as the original. It was slower paced than the original game and has much more of a traditional narrative. There is an inciting incident at the start of episode 1 that leads to an ending of a self contained story. It's weirdly a game about Rachel not Chloe. I was worried that having to lead up to the previous game it would not really have any real plot other than the two girls friendship and then lose as the events of the first game begin, but there are only really hints at the first game and bases itself on it's own story. Apparently they are making a second Life Is Strange game although I really don't understand how'd they'd work unless they base it around a totally unrelated character.

Anyway 8/10

Call of Duty WWII.

Nothing major to report other than WWII is typical of any CoD campaign, but that said I still enjoyed it.

7/10

OneChanBara Z2 Chaos.

Unashamed tits and ass aside I really like this brawler. It has a scarily deep combo system once you get into the game and start upgrading. Finished the main story twice now on normal and hard difficulty and completed about 50% of the missions. A hugely playable game that has quickly become one of my favourites.

8/10

Batman - The Telltale Series (in before free on PSN+ :x )

This was fairly short (felt like about 5-6 hours for the 5 chapters). A nice story to watch but it really doesn't feel like I'm changing the outcome. I'm guessing that if I played through this again and made different decisions, all the key points of the story would remain unchanged. Not sure how this plays on other platforms (played this on PS4) but technically, it is not very accomplished. Have to wonder whether someone sat down, tested it and thought "it doesn't matter if the game pauses to load mid action sequence or if we just end a sequence abruptly with some loading rather than a smooth transition between one scene and the next".

Be interested to know if only I experienced this but it felt that in a number of places that the game was reacting without me (i.e. actions were happening prior to me completing the sequence on the controller) or the game was simply not responding, resulting in death even though I know I responded in time. This just served to further dispel the illusion that I was interacting with the game and instead just giving me something to watch rather than participate with.

On the whole enjoyable story so if you want to sit back and enjoy the ride, little to complain about. If you were looking for some gaming at the same time, this might not be for you.

That's par for the course for Telltale games isn't it, the illusion of actually making decisions that change the outcome?

Little Nightmares 9/10

That was absolutely incredible. The art, music, and atmosphere was off the charts. Gameplay was reminiscent of 90s classic Another World, so basically prepare for some frustrating 1 hit kill segments until you figure out what youre supposed to be doing, but overall it was just an absolutely strawberry floated up, macabre joy to play.

The gameplay is great and the story is well worth keeping up with as it's interesting and fleshes out the world nicely.
I can't give it anything but a 10 :wub: .


Yep, a really good game. We'll, they both are with Last Lights' more gun-ho approach working well to up the tempo. Bought the bundle last year in the Steam sale for a pittance with every intention of playing through both again this year.

Castle of Illusion (360) - 7/10

+ Looks very nice
+ Some decent music
+ Enjoyable levels
+ Not overly long, and therefore doesn't wear out its welcome

- Not much challenge
- A few repetitive ideas...some more variety would've been nice
- Another level might have been good - felt cheap getting two gemstones in one stage, almost like they couldn't be arsed with another level

Blitzed through this in a couple of hours. Was enjoyable while it lasted though and I didn't really feel like it was lacking anything too important. Short but enjoyable.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings (PC)

I really enjoyed this despite the simplification of the combat stances from the first game and the sense that you really should have read the books before starting to know who/what all the kings, kingdoms and important events are. I'm looking forward to 3 and am glad i went through the first two as they provide quite a bit of context and set up some of the characters for it, but will probably have a bit of a break from the series before diving in.

9/10

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

Not without its flaws, but enjoyable nonetheless.

6/10

Have the sequel to begin at some point, but other games to play first.

Jak 2 (PS3)

+When it's fun, it's *fun*
+Some genuinely great sections
+Great character art
+The story is pretty good
+Runs well on PS3, I don't see any frameskip drops
+Subtitles (first game didn't have any)

-...but no subtitles for in-game dialog
- Poor checkpoints
- Shite camera
- Some sections are really awful
- Difficulty spikes all over; very unforgiving
- Boring home hub
- Poor vehicle controls
- No aiming, only four weapons, none of them are really special. Just your standard weapons.
- No in-game list/tracker for collectibles

Solid 7

Inside 9/10

I didn't intentionally play two 2.5D Another World style games, but managed it somehow due to splurging randomly in the steam sale. I think overall I probably preferred Little Nightmares, but Inside is still amazing. Great puzzles, great atmosphere and art, and holy strawberry floating gooseberry fool at that last 30 minutes or so. I really, really didn't see that coming :lol:
Incredible experience
