  2. The Last Of Us:Remastered-PS4- Just as good, if not better than I remembered. The story beats still hit me in the feels and there was a couple of bits I'd totally forgotten about, so it was almost like playing a new game. I can't believe it first cam out 7 years ago! I played a lot more stealthy this time round and had a blast, but when I did have to go loud I blew the crap out of everyone that stood in my way. I struggled my first time through because I was trying to save resources but this time round I used the tools available and enjoyed it a lot more. I'm sure it's different on hard or above, but on normal the game lets you enjoy using the weapons, bombs and molotovs without having to worry where the next one is going to come from. I'm looking forward to going through the 2nd once I get hold of a PS5, and I'm hoping they scale it up for next gen, because there's not much coming out day one for them...
  3. MW2 was the last COD game I played and I loved it too. That was the last game before the Black Ops nonsense and bi-annual releases and I felt I had burned out on the franchise. Probably just my age but I had been playing, and loving COD since the original blew me (and Medal of Honour) away on PC all those years ago - loved every game they made but eventually the formula grew stale.
  4. CoD MW2 Remastered (PS4) Irritatingly I bought this a few weeks before it went on PS Plus. When it first came out, to me it was a great game. All this time later and it was decidedly average. Exactly the same CoD gameplay, although with very pretty graphics. The lack of Spec Ops is annoying as I loved that mode. I got suckered in by nostalgia and hopefully have learned my lesson; CoD is not a good franchise (at least for me).
  5. BattleToads-Bone- Big, dumb and a lot of fun. Part brawler, part shooter, part puzzler, part Metroidvania. All Toad. Well worth a few hours of your time if you have Gamepass. I'm not sure how much they're selling it for but I'd have been okay with dropping £15 on this. The only downside is no online co-op as far as I can see.
  6. Ghost of Tsushima (PS4) Thoroughly enjoyed this, to the point where I’m mopping up all the side quests and collectibles. It plays like a standard open world Ass Creed type game, but the world is beautiful and it’s very cool being a Samurai. The combat is like the Arkham games, so timing your parries is important. You could also play it in pure stealth but it’s kind of more fun to run in chopping off limbs. To sum up, story is okay, combat is very good, the world and setting are great. It’s also nowhere near as long as AC. It doesn’t really bring anything new to the genre, but it’s definitely worth picking up, as long as you’re not burned out on open world games.
  7. Ninja Gaiden 2 - right it's done, never again!
  8. Carrion (XB1) - 2020 - 4/5 Lots of fun. 2D light metroidvania about controlling a monster that looks straight out of The Thing. Some cool puzzles and exploration, great art style that reminded me of the Amiga, and only a few wrinkles that didn't really impact things too much. Game Pass too, which was a bonus! The Touryst (XB1) - 2020 - 3/5 Another Game Pass special, but after some initial promise it lost its way a bit. Looks great, and there's a sprinkle of some Zelda-light dungeon exploration and puzzles, but as it went on it relied more and more on repeating the same tasks over and over again. There was also a reliance on some really finicky combat puzzles that with the game's movement physics and camera made for some massively frustrating "boss fights".
  9. Prehistoric Isle in 1930-Poc-I got the SNK collection free from Twitch Prime. I finished this had a quick blast on Ikari Warriors and uninstalled the whole lot. I'm so glad I didn't but the compilation on Switch...Total bullshit that is best left in the arcades and the memory.
  10. Stopped playing FC4 as I got fed up of the damned if you do, damned if you don't stuff between the two people who give you missions. Took the fun out of it.
  11. I’ll probably get it! Good luck with Furlough mate.
  12. It must be 3 I have this issue with because I didn't like Blood Dragon(at least what I played of it) and I know it's universally liked but...I'll give it another go at some point when I get the FC itch again. I'm being really good as I've been furloughed for nearly 4 months so I've not been buying new games, just clearing the backlog and it's been great, and I'm hoping to take not buying day one forward once I come off furlough.(I find out tomorrow) As for: Far Cry 4-Valley of the Yetis-PS4-It's more Far Cry 4 but not as good. Each main mission you do is followed by an enforced wave based defence. It feels like padding because it is padding. After all you're not at the base all days as you're out killing Yetis and bad guys, they could just waltz in and take over the base while you're not there... Anyway, worth a couple of quid if you want more Far Cry 4.
  13. Yeah, probably some rose-tints going on with 3, also played it on PC so it probably looked nicer anyway. Didn’t do the yetis but I did do Blood Dragon which is probably the best piece of DLC there has ever been! I’ll be getting 6 on day 1! (Then probably not play it for 6 months like I normally do with games these days..).
  14. Yeah I believe 4 is cross gen, but it's a big step up from how 3 looks and plays. This reminded me I hadn't played Valley of The Yetis dlc, so I started it this morning. The vehicles just have more weight to them, and although they don't drive brilliantly they're a lot better than 3s floaty cars. 4 looks better but then it was 3 years after so it should do! I think the gunplay feels better in 4 too. As for the dlc, so far so good, it's not too long and apart from a shaky start I'm enjoying running around killing yetis and other wildlife. At least getting all this Far Cry out of my system means I won't rush out and buy 6 day one so that's nice
  15. Funny, I’m playing through FC4 at the moment and I keep thinking that it’s not as good as 3, seems a bit less thought through and slightly hollow. But I played played 3 a long time ago and the drop down from 5 to 4 is quite noticeable (wasn’t 4 a 360 game?) so perhaps I’m being unfair. One thing I am sure about though is that I prefer the tropical island feel of 3, feels more Far Cry.
  16. Far Cry 3-PS4-Furlough Platinum number 7- This is a decent game Buck, Vaas and Hoyt were 3 unlikeable villains and I enjoyed killing them very much. It has a little bit of jank with prompts to climb or loot bodies etc not being as precise as they could but apart from that it was a lot of fun. It's not as good as 4 imo because 4 took this template and refined it, traversal of the world being easier is the major one. Overall though this scratches my compulsive itch for shooting and collecting things.
  17. Yep, I saw this a few weeks ago and thought it looked fantastic. Will give it a look when my Far Cry 3 addiction is over.
  18. This is a fun game playing a horrible amorphous blog that escapes and terrorises the facility. Metroidvania without a map which is weird and I did get a bit lost for a bit. Blob is beautifully animated and the size of said blob affects your abilities so you have to shed size and gain size to do certain abilities. Well worth a look.
  19. Spiderman DLC 2 and 3-PS4- These were okay but not as good as the first. They were over long with lots of crimes to pad out the content if you want 100%, Screwball can fucking do one and better not be in the new game. Hyped for Miles Morales Spidey now.
  20. Days Gone - when it finally gets going and you've meaningfully leveled up it gets pretty good but bloody hell it takes an age Last of Us 2 - agree with toneeblair but overlong but good. Now want something non torture porn to play so Nina Gaiden 2 on Game Pass which is merely gratuitous violence.
  21. Wolfenstein YoungBlood-PS4 This is great fun, it's one of those 7/10 games that just keeps giving. The story isn't as mental as the mainline games, but it's the co-op and the gunplay that makes it so good. Once you start opening up more powers and levelling up the guns enemies that were ridiculously hard before get taken down in 4 shots! Will be going back tomorrow to mop up a few side missions and find a few stray collectables. Played it in co-op all the way through and that might have elevated it to 8/10 but I was playing with Jimmy It's on Game Pass too so give it a go if you like Wolfenstein or co-op games.
  22. Last of Us: Part II (PS4) - 2020 - 4/5 Brutal, and a bit overlong, but otherwise loved this as a continuation and refining of what made the original so great. The characters are great, and the improvements to the game mechanics and combat especially are fantastic. It's also stupidly gorgeous, and I ended up buying some concept art to go on my wall Had a few things on the go before I started Last of Us, but lost interest in finishing them up. Probably time to revisit some before I get pulled into Ghosts of Tsushima!
  23. Shenmue 2-PS4-Platinum 6 of Furlough time yay?- Unlike Yussry I'd never finished this one...This was great story wise, although in retrospect not much happens, you just do a lot to get the story beats. However so much is set up for the multiple sequels that may happen now thanks to Shenmue 3... Yet it's a cunt of a game. So much bullshit. The QTES have no rules in this game, you think you're done? You're not fuck you back to the beginning you go You think you fucked it, oh no you didn't, you get another chance because reasons.. You fight a boss in free battle, with 2 QTES, you win the first round,pass the first QTE and fuck him over and then win the 2nd round but then fail the QTE? Back to the beginning of the first round for you, but not before a cut scene that thankfully you can skip . So fuck this game.... except for the first third and last 10%... the rest can do one...
  24. Shenmue (PS4) Got the platinum, like Wayne. Never played it before, unlike Wayne. A nice change of pace after Last of Us 2. I played Shenmue 2 ages ago on XB, so it was familiar yet different. Going to play 2 next, possibly 3 as well before Ghost of Tsushima.
  25. Star Wars Battlefront 2-PS4-Furlough Platinum number 5!!!- So not a completion as such. but I needed 1 trophy in multiplayer and it was a bit of a grind but today I finally did it. 2.5 years to get this platinum but it was so much fun!!
  26. The Last of Us Part 2 (PS4) Finished this last week. I successfully managed to avoid any of the leaks and spoilers for this, so I won’t mention any here. Graphics, sound and animation are outstanding. The core gameplay is very good, better than the first. I mostly played it stealthily but you can go all action at points too. You can even adjust AI and resources in the options to how you want it, even turn it into pseudo-Gears of War. Really nice to have the choice. I enjoyed the story, it was very clever and well done and if you take the time with it you can really appreciate what they were getting at. It doesn’t have a straightforward linear story like the first game, which may be partly why some people hate it. My only issues are that it can feel very long, especially when you get into the second half, but it feels necessary because of plot points. I also found some of the violence quite jarring, although it makes sense being in an apocalypse. Definitely recommended to play it, unless you hate LGBT characters/plots or are not in the mood for thinking a bit deeper with story, or if you can’t deal with a pretty bleak atmosphere. 8/10
