  1. Last week
  2. 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.
  3. 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!!
  4. 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
  5. Shenmue-PS4-Furlough Platinum number 4- I still love this.I beat it back in the day twice. It's dated as fuck in so many respects, but it took chances and I think helped to shape todays games in a lot of ways. The worst I can say about it is the final boss battle is not exciting in any way shape or form, more a war of attrition. Something that has been changed for the better over the years. I was pretty close to the end back in September 2018 and my last trophy was 3/9/18. I was really enjoying it then Forsaken for Destiny 2 released on the 4th( I just had to look that up as I couldn't think why I'd dropped it!) so Fuck Destiny 2 even more Anyway I have 2 and 3 waiting in the wings. I may got straight into them as I seem to be into completing trilogies this year.
  6. Phantasy Star Online 2 - Episode 1 Story Mode So... much... story... Rather than have the story naturally play out as you enjoy the game, Sega makes you sit through what feels like a thousand little 2 minute long story skits with a few battles thrown in for good measure. It took me maybe 6 hours to get through them all in between just playing the game normally. The rewards are worth doing if you are into the cosmetic side as you get a free weapon skin and loads of star gems (one of the premium currencies) thrown at you, but if not, then save your time and just play the game. There's two more episodes worth of story to get through and episode 4 is coming out soon... I dont think I can sit through this shit any more... Game is good though!
  7. Earlier
  8. I didn't have any of the problems you describe but glad you liked it.
  9. Ratchet & Clank(Reboot)-PS4-Just what I needed after the oppressiveness of Metro. A fun platformer with primary colours galore! I've loved these games since Tools of Destruction on PS3, I missed out on the PS2 era games for whatever reason. Anyway this is a lot of fun, zany weapons and some fun but not too taxing platforming and puzzles make this a game well worth playing.
  10. Shadow of The Tomb Raider (Bone) - took me well over a year I think. Mainly because it’s so big and I did 100% as I played it (even though it didn’t register cos of some gash bug). Not as good as the first but better than the second, also the best looking game I’ve ever played on the OneX. Locations were epic and tombs required some good thinking but combat was clumsy and lost count of the amount of times I died because the animation worked wrong for a jump or something. Epic game though and well worth the money despite the flaws. Far Cry 5: New Dawn (Bone) Dawn of War (PC) Dawn of War 2 (PC). Dawn of War 2: Chaos Rising (PC). Dawn of War: Winter Assault (PC). Dawn of War: Dark Crusade (PC). Dawn of War: Soulstorm (PC)
  11. For Yussry: Metro Exodus-Bone- This is a great game, by far the best Metro game. It's not without faults, it mainly falls down with navigation in the open areas, which wasn't a problem in the other games since they were fairly linear.Something I hope they'll sort out for the next one to make it clearer where to go next. This game has levels that are contained open worlds and you can pretty much go anywhere. The only other problem I had was Artyom sometimes felt a bit too big for the area I was trying to navigate, so it became a bit clumsy at times. The games a looker though and the story is great, well worth a playthrough.
  12. Wonderboy 3-Megadrive/PS4- Well that was shit. I played it through in VR and while the first few levels were fun enough from about the halfway point to the end I had to keep using the rewind function due to so much bullshit. I doubt many people finished it back in the day.
  13. Dawn of War: Soulstorm (PC) - Not sure why I’ve decided to play these games from the pile-o-shame but I have and now they’re done! Interesting new races for Soulstorm but the game itself is not as challenging or interesting as DC, mainly because the AI just doesn’t do anything on the world map. Still hopefully I can move on now! Still not sure where to should buy DoW3 - reviews are just too mixed and I don’t know if I like the idea of overpowered bosses and weak armies.
  14. Astro Bot-PSVR- Fuck me! What a game. It's inventive, whimsical and just downright Joyful. Each world gets more and more inventive with its design and bosses. Definitely the best game I've played in VR. Amazing stuff.
  15. CoD WW2 (PS4) Standard CoD campaign. It was fun, like a greatest hits of WW2 campaign, and didn’t outstay it’s welcome. Fun for a weekend, especially as it’s on PS Plus right now. Won’t be going near multiplayer so no idea how that is.
  16. Theseus-PSVR- Basically a 3rd person walking simulator with mild platforming and combat. Without the VR it would have been ok, with the VR and the scale of the labyrinth and Minotaur it upped it to good. Worth a couple of hours of anyones time. I think I paid £5 for it. Well worth it for that.
  17. That’s the one, didn’t remember the bit from PS3 either but can’t forget from the Switch version.
  18. Bust open the gate with the cherubs. I don't remember it being that hard, maybe I'd just scrubbed it from my memory because this time round it must have taken over 20 attempts...
  19. You talking about the bit when you have to guard the gate? Mental hard that.
  20. Ghostbusters:Remastered-PS4- It was always a little bit janky when it first came out. Still has the same amount of jank except it looks prettier. A solid B game with a frustrating last level difficulty spike about 3/4 through it. Apart from that part, Bustin' made me feel good.
  21. No it got pretty good reviews. I was reading a Retro Gamer article on the making of it. Even Edge gave it a good score!
  22. Never played it either. I remember the reception being pretty flat at the time.
  23. SMW2:Yoshis Island-SNES/Switch- Meh. It was ok. It looks lovely but I found most of the levels uninspiring and the music is not a patch on the original. Glad I've finished it but I can't see me playing it again.
  24. Yeah playing Days Gone and the guy is either really subdued or a fucking maniac.
  25. Days Gone-PS4-Furlough Platinum number 3!- This is a great game. I heard it had issues when it released but I started playing it at the end of May. It's massive and doesn't know how to describe a point of no return but apart from that I can only fault it for being a bit too long. One of my favourite games this gen. EDIT: Forgot to mention how bad the main actor is. He's so OTT and only has a small repertoire of phrases during set pieces like taking over marauder camps. He also takes his acting lessons from the Family Guy piss take of the Hoth Han/Luke scene with the heavy breathing taken to the next level. Except it's not played for laughs! Still a great game though.
  26. Tex Murphy: Mean Streets (poc) Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening (Switch) God of War (PS4) FF7 Remake (PS4) Streets of Rage 4 (PS4) The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine (PS4) Amazing. Still one of my favourite games after, what, 5 years? I imagine I'll still keep going back to clear up the side quests.
  27. Assassin’s Creed Origins (PS4) I enjoyed this. First AC I played since 3. The setting was interesting, decent if linear story and exploring the world was cool. I didn’t like how long it was and the RPG elements felt tacked on and force you to do side quests to level up that I wasn’t fussed with. Worth the £10 I spent. Might try Valhalla if I’m desperate for something on next gen, but in no real rush to play every entry in the series I missed.
