  1. Shrinking horse balls does not make a fun game. I didn’t question the level of detail and the systems; it makes for a great simulator but not a fun game. A privilege to play?
  2. Red Dead Redemption 2 (PS4) Finally got round to finishing this. I’m done with Rockstar games after this (until I get sucked in by the hype again and am left disappointed again). The controls and physics, which they seem to have in every Rockstar game, are so heavy and slow they make walking around a chore and the combat, as a pseudo cover shooter, mostly awful. The controls are very convoluted, there’s just too much going on. The same button for climbing also picks your hat up off the floor, which is different to picking a gun off the floor. Think I got RSI from tapping the sprint button so much. After taking a break from it I had to spend an age figuring out the controls again. Over the course of a 50-ish hour game, and I skipped all of the side quests, the story doesn’t get going until around the last third. The end and epilogue are pretty good but it’s painful getting there. It takes ages to get anywhere until you unlock fast travel quite a way in, and even then it isn’t straight forward. I think the game is just far too big. You can get stuck in with hunting and fishing and other things, and the world is huge and detailed but it seems that Rockstar have lost sight of what makes a game fun. It’s a Wild West simulator and not a fun game. Apart from the previous Red Dead I don’t think Rockstar made a fun game since the PS2.
  3. They added arrows on the floor if you played it with remastered graphics. That’s how badly designed that area was originally.
  4. Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order (PS4) Really enjoyed this throughout, although perhaps a bit too much backtracking. I didn’t like the save point system, which is a bit of a pain, and the combat while engaging and pretty well done wasn’t the best. I would’ve preferred if it had played more simply like Force Unleashed, but I know they went for a Souls type of experience which I don’t have much patience for. Aside from those minor issues I didn’t have any bugs (on a Pro) but the animation was a bit janky at times. Almost forgot that the controls felt a bit heavy when platforming, especially on the stupid overused slides. Definitely worth a go. 7/10 from me (from not a huge SW fan) which makes it better than all but 2 of the movies.
  5. The extra stuff, and patch to 60fps and aspect ratios is out now https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2020-01-09-doom-1-and-2-re-releases-get-60fps-support-john-romeros-sigil-in-latest-update
  6. Free dlc coming to 1&2, including Final Doom and Sigil. Pretty good value here. They’re also adding changes to the aspect ratio. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-12-10-bethesdas-doom-1-and-2-console-ports-adding-final-doom-sigil-for-free
  7. LttP is only on ‘new’ 3DS. You could also get it on Snes Classic Mini, and possibly Wii U eshop.
  8. CoD: Modern Warfare (PS4) About 6 hours to get through the campaign. I didn’t really know what the story was about but an entertaining few hours with a couple of standout levels. The graphics are excellent if that’s your thing. I was never going to get into the multiplayer so don’t know how that compares, but I liked Spec Ops in MW2 and the version of it in this is piss poor. Just sticking you in one of the large mp maps with an objective marker to ‘do a thing’ at. Nothing of the variety or strategy from MW2. At least I was able to get most of the money back from selling it on. Shame really as I had high hopes for Spec Ops mode to keep me playing it for a while. Edit: If you want to play this be prepared for multiple downloads. About 75gig initial patch, then a further 3 downloads for all of Spec Ops. Total of 125-ish gigs of storage required!
  9. Zelda: Link’s Awakening (Switch) Really good fun. Frame rate drops could be a bit annoying but cool art style and music and didn’t outstay it’s welcome.
  10. Gears 5 (Bone) Huge improvement on 4. Act 3 went on a bit too long, but the combat and story were very good. Let down by bugs in places though, including not giving out achievements when it was supposed to.
  11. I got the original Doom on Switch. Still a great game. Haven’t picked up the others yet, hoping for a physical pack with those and Doom 64. Doom 3 is the updated version where all weapons have a torch. Haven’t got to Turok yet, waiting for my physical copy to arrive.
  12. Been playing in co-op on 2 xboxes. Had a couple of freezes for player 2, but making solid progress. Must be a crossplay/ PC issue?
  13. Gears of War 4 (Bone) Still don’t like the robots in the first half of the game, or the horde mechanics added to campaign, but still a really solid game. Gears 5 installed and ready to go tonight.
  14. Gears of War 3 (Bone) Started a coop play through ages ago and decided to finish it ahead of 5. Combat is still fun, but it’s too grey and brown in the colour palette (despite being better than the first 2). Going through 4 now, and I’d forgotten how good the HDR was on that in comparison.
