Dumb room with one-way doorknob brings it down a mark for me. Pointless bullshit just there to make you go the long way around.

I made it the entire game without breaking the handle. Had no problems planning routes and Barry fixes it by the time you get to the outside area. Not a problem at all really.

EDIT: Master of Darkness on Sega Master System. Another game from my childhood that I could never finish. This is a really good Castlevania clone. I actually enjoyed this more than the NES Castlevanias.

It looks good, controls pretty well, has some good level design and simple but effective bosses. One thing of note is that the end credits are spelled out on a ouija board which I thought was a nice touch. It gets a solid 8/10.


I really loved the Mega Drive version of Taz it was hard as nails though.


I was never a huge fan of the Mega Drive game but I remember the Master System one quite fondly.

Also finished another game today, Zero Wing on Mega Drive. While this is mostly known now for the "All your base are belong to us" memes it's a shame as it's a pretty good shooter. It controls well, looks good and has some cool looking enemies/bosses. It's not the hardest game in the world but I'm not sure I'd have the patience for it without save states. 7/10


I sank hours into taz I remember thinking it looked as good as the cartoon at the time.

It's a problem if you're playing as Chris.

Completed Brothers: A tale of two sons

Really enjoyed the game although not really for the game play. It was quite annoying controlling two characters at once and I would confuse which stick controlled which character at times. But, even then the game was super easy. I didn't struggle with any of the puzzles or every have to think about what I needed to do next. I did die a few times and did find some of the climbing sections tense.

Where the game really excels is graphics and story telling. Each level (chapter) looks unique and very pretty. Just walking through the game is quite an enjoyable experience.

Nobody says anything in English but the ways the characters emote is really engaging. You get a feeling for what the characters are going through and actually feel for them. There were a couple of plot bits I couldn't really get behind though they weren't a big deal TBH.

It was pretty short, it took me three hours all told, which is a good length any longer and it would have got quite tiring.

8/10

Stories: The Path of Destinies.

This was one of the PS+ games from December. I had absolutely no idea what to expect from it - I thought it was a crappy Diablo clone or something. As it turns out, it's a weird little game which has basically got Batman combat and an upgrade tree.

Each run through the game takes about an hour and you're faced with various choices which mean things go one way or another. Basically you go down 4 different routes the first four times and figure out something from each of those paths which lets you complete the game and get the true ending. I started it last night and finished it today. Probably took me 4-5 hours all told.

It's really good fun and I enjoyed the writing. The plot is basically a massive Star Wars rip off (very blatant parody) but there's loads of pop-culture references in there, some of which are pretty funny.


With a few upgrades the combat gets quite hectic:



7/10.

Until Dawn - what a fantastic game this is, probably one of my favourite horror games from the past two generations. 9/10

Wonder Boy on Master System. I'd finished the Adventure Island version of this on NES before but never played this version outside the arcade. It's a fun if basic platformer. The whole keep running and hope for the best gameplay isnt ideal but it's a good looking game for the time.

6/10

As a side note having now played the two versions of this game it really hits home how much better Wonder Boy is than Adventure Island. I know Master System was popular in Europe, Australia and Brazil but it tanked in the US and Japan despite from what I understand it being a technically superior system to NES. It would be interesting to see how the system would have fared if not hampered by Nintendo having all the 3rd party support locked down making NES exclusives.

Abzu was fun. Bought it last night in the PS4 sale for under a tenner and completed it this morning. I think it was intended to be some kind of cautionary tale - but it's not preachy and it's very simply and concisely told. Beautiful graphics, a dream-like quality and as well as being easy to play all the way through it's also a strangely relaxing experience. Strikes me as a game that would suit the VR treatment (perhaps it already exists?).

I wish there had been slightly more of an educational edge to the game - more information about the various species of marine life, etc. I guess that wasn't the path the developers chose, but still. I would have done a few things differently (I'd have kept the gentle eco-message, but made it more of a boy-and-his-dolphin tale), but whatever. Gorgeous-looking game, well worth picking up at its current discount if you haven't already done so.

Wario Ware Touched! 7/10 Still a fun collection, even with the touch screen novelty being long gone, though I wonder who thought it was a good idea to put all the blowing into the mic minigames into one section?

Mega Man Battle Network 6/10 Interesting concept, maybe one of the five sequels the game has will make it feel wholesome?

Asterix on Master System. Carrying on with the retro theme here is another game from childhood that I never finished. This is a really good platformer, it still plays well and looks fantastic for the time. The levels are a little brief but often require a little exploration so it's not really an issue.

9/10

Persona Dancing All Night - 7/10

Good but story goes on a bit and the end just let it down for me. Easy platinum too and nothing for completing dancing all night difficulty

Truxton on Mega Drive. An okay shooter but it gets quite hard quickly, it doesn't help when one of your weapons makes it really difficult to see (and more importantly avoid) a lot of enemy fire. Only 5 levels but as I said with Zero Wing I doubt I'd have the patience for it without save states.

Yakuza 6 Main Story 9/10

Just wonderful to play through in every way and there's still hundereds of things for me to do. Most of the characters were fantastic, with Beat Takeshi's Oyassan being a highlight. Only downside was the final boss. Outside of that, simply amazing story to play through and had me hooked from the beginning.

Shaq Fu on Mega Drive. I've heard so many bad things about this game yet never played it myself so in a bout of morbid curiosity I decided to check it out. My opinion? It's not as bad as everybody makes it out to be. Don't get me wrong, it's a bad game perhaps one of the worst fighting games out there but it's just not quite as bad as everybody says it is.

Inside 8/10

I don't really understand what it was trying to say, but it's stuck with me since finishing it yesterday. One of the most bizarre and intriguing games I've played in a longtime. Some superb visuals and animation set amongst some amazing atmosphere. Played it through in one sitting and had no idea about any of it. Probably the best way to play it.

Shadow complex. Great fun and a pleasure to play. A solid 9 for sure

Journey. Simply one of the best gaming experiences I've ever had. Phenomenal work from that game company. I think that every game they've made has been about fifty times better than their last one so there next game should by all accounts be the best game ever

Amwtgmg less than a ten for Journey would be a porky pie.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss. 5/10
What a slog. For me, this demonstrated how much the full-fat Uncharted series depends on incredible set-pieces and fairly open areas to mix up the combat in an improvised way. It was still good-looking at times, but it basically amounts to small areas with cover/pop-up and shoot action, coupled with generic platforming and basic puzzles.
Drake and Sully still deliver the enjoyable banter though.
Freed-up over 3gb of space on my card now, so happy days.

Abzu. Would have been ten out of ten but I've recently played Journey and they're very similar games. Still wonderful though.

But Journey is better

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:
