Danganronpa 2 (Vita) 8.

This got off to a shaky start with me as I was not particularly taken with the first trial. Thankfully I found the rest of them to be excellent with all the trust's and turns I would hope for.
The new games in the trials were all great and I found the new way that you navigate the map to be a massive quality of life improvement.
So yeah, really glad I stuck with it after a bumpy first few hours. Looking forward to playing the third one now.

Glad I'm not the only one who loves the weird trial mini games, they tend to get a lot of flack. Logic Dive felt like a lost Sonic bonus stage

They got flack? I'm surprised, they seemed to mix the gameplay up nicely. I guess for someone who was strongly into the VN aspect it might be a touch to jarring, but personally it made things feel fresher for longer.
And yeah, i liked the Logic Drive sections.

Tales From the Borderlands - 8.5/10. Finished it earlier this afternoon. Its not perfect, of course but Telltale’s skeleton crew did a magnificent job on this. Given the sales it’s unlikely but I’d love a second season.

Almost gret when I thought Loader Bot had copped it. :oops:

Letter Quest Remastered (Switch): I have beat the main campaign on the "first star" category. There are 30 such stages and it took me around nine hours. It's a Scrabble RPG where you build words to defeat monsters, whist also upgrading your sword, clothing and spells.

I thoroughly enjoyed it; presentation is basic but decent (the music tracks are terrific) and the gameplay is marvelous for word puzzle fans. There is a slight bug with the joy-con analog stick - the game is slow to react to input - but I used the touchscreen format throughout and that worked very well. I picked the game up in an eShop sale for around £7 and I feel I have got good value.

The game hasn't actually ended as there are various harder ways of re-tackling the stages but I am happy to give it a break at this point for now!

Titanfall 2.

+ Thought it controlled really well. Liked the variation in the levels. All the weapons were fun to use, never really got to "know" any of them though.

- Wasn't much of a challenge. Characters a bit bland. Levels probably could have made better use of the wall running and didn't seem big enough in scope for using Titans - I guess it's primarily a multi-player game with a campaign tacked on.

Overall - A good little FPS with bags of potential. 7/10.

Totally agree, I thought the single player was good but not any better than CoD. The multiplayer though...

It was light years ahead of CoD campaigns. Have you played CoD WW2? It's a joke compared to TF2. Nothing in any CoD can compare to the time travel mission in TF2

No I haven't played WW2. I enjoyed IW just as much as TF2, I'm probably being a bit harsh but the hype around this was pretty crazy and it just didn't meet those expectations for me.

I think Titanfall 2 was a smidge overrated too. It was really enjoyable, but never really amounted to more than the sum of its parts. That particular level was an obvious highpoint, it's a shame we didn't see more of that kind of inventiveness throughout the campaign.

Assassins' Creed Unity (Xbox One X) [7]

+Recreation of Ancient Egypt is unbelievable. Such an enormously pretty game. One of the best game settings in a long time. A great choice, too, with three great ancient civilisations all involved in the narrative.
+Presentation all round is top notch. Oozing with atmosphere.

-A real Frankenstein of a game with borrowed parts from Souls and Destiny that don't really gel together. Ubisoft just can't seem to nail the combat in these games. Rocksteady has got a perfect template for combat that'd suit these games so well and I just can't understand how, with Ubisoft's money and clout, they can't get this core aspect of the game correct. A lumbering Souls-lite combat system just seems at odds with the 'Assassins' theme. Also, what's the point having 100s of ostensibly identical but statistically different weapons in a game like this? It takes the fun out of uncovering weapons as they'll just be superseded by another, near identical one in 20 mins time...
-Overly-long and needlessly grindy. I really dislike Ubisoft's use of timesaver packs and materials DLC. Balance the game correctly so that I get the top amour etc. without having to play for days. They took a year-off to rejig the formula. I was really hoping that they would cut putting armour sets behind a pay wall on Day 1 and the grind makes up-levelling the basic set a real chore.
-Although the map is beautiful, there are great swathes of it that are desert (well, duh). Don't see the point of putting them into a 'game' though. I lost an evening riding around the desert hoping there would be more things of interest in them (there are some things, I know, but riding on a digital horse for 20mins just to find out that there's nothing on interest in a location really irks me).
-
Story didn't amount to much. The interplay between Bayek and Aya is interesting and melancholic - it was interesting to see how they both embodied different aspects of what would later be the Creed but there wasn't nearly enough First Civilisation stuff. This was supposed to be an origins story but, when Bayak discovers a First Civilisation tomb under one of the pyramids, it hardly changes the narrative. It's still largely a revenge story and only a couple of characters were interested by the First Civilisation tombs and tech which seemed a little strange. A bit of a missed opportunity and certainly a bit misleading to call this a true origin story.

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

That's way up the with my favourite endings. I had no idea what was about to happen, and then that. Genuine great moment in gaming right there. I think it's incredible spoilers for it aren't more widespread, as it seems like just the kind of thing you'd have people making meme gifts out of, or Youtubers sticking it in thumbnails.

Yeah it seems ripe for a pewdiepie YT thumbnail of him screaming with a picture of that next to him or something. So glad it wasn't spoiled for me tho because it really came out of left field, its strawberry floating disgusting :lol:

The Evil Within 2 (PC)

The original seemed to be a bit of a marmite game with a few people on here loving it and some others not seeing much in it. I'm firmly in the "love it" camp and found it really enjoyable, so much so that after completing it I started playing through it again with the weapons and abilities I had picked up in the first run through.

This 2nd game is simply not as good. Difficult to say why because they have added quite a lot to it and if you put the details of both games side by side, the 2nd would appear to be the superior game on paper. If I had to guess at reasons I would say that maybe the environment is not as good and there is less mystery, in this 2nd game you know why you are where you are and what you need to do.

Even though I was only playing at 1080p, I think that the graphics are quite impressive. It deed seem though that your character's model had more work done on it than some of the other characters you meet in the game which was a slight disappointment.

Overall though, a solid game and a solid 7.

The gun play was "off", it simply just wasnt as fun as TEW1. Its bosses werent as strawberry floated up or memorable like Laura or The Keeper were, the environment of unity was very bland too. Especially in the Marrow, which was just downright dull. For every one step forward TEW2 took, it took another 2 backwards. It improved in a lot of areas but strawberry floated up in even more. Oh and if i ever have to hear the name Lily one more time, ill strawberry floating kill someone. The scriptwiters need a slap, if you CTRL+F "Lily" in that script youll probably get about 1,000,000 results.

The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD

Mostly very agreeable changes that make sense. The game generally plays faster and smoother. The slight change in the graphical style was a bit divisive but I think it still looks great and I might even prefer it. And on top of that the graphical quality is better anyway. As a consequence rough edges of character models are a bit more noticeable, but again I can live with it.

Biggest downside for me is that I don't really like the gamepad controls for this game, mainly the right analogue stick for aiming. I can't really stand gyro either. Wish Nintendo just had GC adapter support for all games and not just Smash. But being able to move while aiming in first person is cool.

8/10

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.

This has just gone on sale on Steam, and I'm buying based purely on you raving about it here and when you were talking about Inside.

Sweet man, enjoy it! As I said, caveat emptor, its got a few frustrating one hit kill sections a la classic games like Another World, but if you're okay with that, god damn its a creepy, amazing experience. One sequence in particular made me feel like I was playing a really twisted Ghibli movie :D
