Botanicula (PC) - 7/10
+ Nice visuals
+ Some funny moments
+ Great character design
+ Excellent audio design

- A bit formulaic
- A bit repetitive

Decent point-and-click which I didn't actually realise was a point-and-click when I bought it. :slol: As such it took me a long time to get into it, but after the initial boredom, it grew on me quite a lot. Not remarkable by any means, but it has enough character and is short enough (2-3 hours maybe?) to warrant looking into if you like these kind of games.

Kirby's Adventure (NES) - 8/10
+ Decent visuals/art design
+ Good music
+ Absorbing enemy abilities is a good mechanic
+ Nice mix of platforming, minigames, and different gameplay types

- Controls can be frustrating/takes some getting used to
- Not much challenge (apart from the bosses where you need to learn the patterns/employ some trial and error tactics)

This is the first Kirby game I've properly played. It's actually pretty good, bar some initial frustrations. Taking on the abilities of enemies is a simple idea but works really well, and adds some depth to progression through levels and how you tackle certain situations. Solid game.

Professor Layton and The Azran Legacy - 7/10

It's pretty good. The pacing is a little off, most the plot is towards the end of the game, some of the places the plot goes to are interesting, others not so much. The puzzles, some of them were a bit annoying, and the curve in difficulty was a bit all over the show.

The third game is still the greatest.

I just finished Metro Lat Light: Redux and it was thoroughly enjoyable.

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: .

Return to Castle Wolfenstein (PC) - 6/10

+ Good range of weapons
+ Some fun missions
+ Varied locations
+ Good level design

- A glitch stopped me progressing on one of the levels
- Lots of crashes which meant I had to skip several levels due to them not loading
- Stealth sections aren't great
- Some frustrating missions

Started out really enjoying this, but then soon got bogged down in glitches and crashes, which hampered my enjoyment quite a bit. I'm sure if it'd all played perfectly the score would've been higher, but as it is I found it a fun but flawed experience.

Super Lucky's Tale

6/10

Quite short, controls are a bit clunky at times, camera is a pain and causes issues with some jumps/knowing where bombs are, complete within 5 hours, no idea why you collect coins in the outer world unless they are for DLC in the future. I got stuck in parts of 3d worlds and also walked through walls in parts.

Looks ok and has some decent platforming levels, some I enjoyed more than levels in Mario Odyssey

Paladin

Simple twinstick that you can probably 1000/1000 In an hour max on easy. Bit disappointing for its cost and several ships doesn't change the fact the 40 levels are the same for each ship. Combines elements of defender in a neon background.

5/10

Another World Anniversary

Hasn't aged well. The controls drove me mad and it felt a bit empty. Completed it and now want to see if it controlled this bad on my Amiga as I don't recall. Better Amiga games i would have preferred to have the update treatment.

4/10

If you haven't already, check out Wolfenstein The Old Blood. Its basically a HD Remake of the best bits of RTCW, without all the early 2000s jank. I'm actually in the process of making video detailing all the similarities between the 2 games, it really could be a reimagining of RTCW theyre so alike

Cheers mate, seems that one completely passed me by. Will take a look. I also have The New Order in my backlog which I'll get to at some point.

The Old Blood is a success due to of its interesting referrals to its roots, but play New Order first. TOB is, gameplay wise, a much weaker game. I love Wolfenstein (I'm currently going through RTCW as its one of my Christmas games) but TOB was actually quite dull to play. It's still good, but it shouldn't be top of your Wolf based playlist (which should be The New Order, The New Colossus, 2009's Wolfenstein (which is criminally overlooked) and The Old Blood for completeness)

Virginia - PC

This is how I imagine people who don't like Twin Peaks/Deadly Premonition view them; nonsensical bollocks wrapped around a wafer thin narrative framework that is so irritatingly pretentious while being utterly vacuous at the same time.

First of all, unlike other walking simulators there are other people present, however with no dialogue whatsoever everything is vague in a way which is frustrating more than intriguing. The 'game' uses cinematic smash-cuts to change scene and time-frame so quickly that it all lost meaning very quickly.

It has all the Lynchian tropes on the surface - crime in leafy town, fbi agents, trippy dream sequences and lots of coffee, but it doesn't take the time to build the normal side of things (or the characters) to make the weird stuff even weirder when it kicks off.

It is also plagued by the worst elements of the point and click genre; spending more focus on finding the one interactable object in a room than looking at what's actually going on.

Somehow this was nominated for a ton of awards and got glowing praise all over; luckily its very short, but if i'd paid more than the 50p or so on gog.com in the sale i'd have been livid.

NOT damn fine coffee/10

Dead Rising 4 (PC)

Other than 3 (which I finished last year but did play it's DLC this year) I've played through every DR game this year. I liked this quite a lot - it is probably more similar to 3 than the first 2.5. There is no time limit to spoil your exploring fun which is a good thing as there is lots to explore and find throughout the game. A new feature is that weapons can be combined on the fly rather than needing a bench and just stumbling across a 2nd part (where you have the first in your inventory and have found the relevant combo plan) will give you a prompt to build it.

Frank's camera also has more use than just taking photos, it is now needed for seeing in the dark (rather than using a torch) and analysing rooms for clues.

Graphically it is not overly impressive, but technically it hangs together quite well - it doesn't feel like there is any loading between chapters which is a refreshing change.

Capcom have just released a heroes update that allows you to play through the game picking up different costumes and abilities. If you've played the full game not sure how many will want to play through it again just for this but if you've not played it in full, not sure how many will want to play with this feature as it somewhat spoils the authenticity of the story.

There is also a co-op online mode which is not a rerun of the story but a sort of survival mode.

7.5

Yes?

999 - 7/10

I liked it on the whole. The plot gets a bit strawberry floating ridiculous on the true ending though, and I never really liked going through the game several times even though there was a fast forward function.

But still, it has some very well realised characters that I won't likely forget (Ace being my favourite). I liked the puzzles, they weren't too intrusive and they were fun to figure out most of the time. One thing I'll say about it, it kept me gripped when I got the safe ending, I loved how that one ended.

Yeah, give it go. It was really cool if a little flawed in some ways. I'll give the other games in the series a try at some point.

I've recently finished Mega Man 3, 4, 5 and 6. All good. I'd say 3 is the best of those 4, but is also by far the hardest.

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.
