  1. Death Stranding (PS4) - 2019 - 5/5 This was a while back actually, but after some initial trepidation about whether I'd like another Kojima game, I ended up really clicking with this. I liken it to something like Animal Crossing or Stardew Valley, and it was my "zen" game for decompressing after the day / week. What Remains of Edith Finch (XB1) - 2017 - 4/5 Beautiful little game that was full of surprises.
  2. Afterparty (XB1) - 2019 - 3/5 New game by the folks that made Oxenfree, but was quite a bit rougher around the edges. It was decent, but fairly shallow and unsatisfying given how awesome the concept is. Cool art, great voice acting, but just not enough going on.
  3. Jedi: Fallen Order (XB1) - 2019 - 2/5 I wanted so much to enjoy this, but I just had endless technical issues, streaming loads happening mid-combat, terrible framerates, and crashes. All of that marred my enjoyment of the combat and traversal, so I just dumped it down to easy to get through it. Overall the story was pretty good, but there was something about the main character's performance that fell completely flat in among so many better performances from the other cast. With The Mandalorian out and showing what other parts of the universe are like, I kinda just want to be playing someone that's not a Jedi too... Pokemon Shield (Switch) - 2019 - 4/5 This was really good fun. If it hadn't been for the awesome Sun / Moon being the last entries, this would be the best Pokemon game I'd played in years. The narrower pokedex meant that there were a lot more interesting and meaningful choices to be made about who I wanted on my team and I found I was changing it up a lot more often. It's set in pretend-UK, there are bagpipes, curries and open world bits. Had a lot of fun with the campaign, and moving some of the post-game and competitive stuff just now.
  4. I had exactly the same experience. The folks I know that played on PC seemed to have much less of the technical issues, but I was getting hard loads and frame drops and jankiness all over, and that was on a One X with "Performance Mode" set in the game. There are some fantastic moments in there, but I recommend anyone else waits for a performance patch before trying it.
  5. Think Judgement is worth playing through? I never caught it first time round but have it as some sort of bonus thing when I got Gears 4.
  6. Zelda: Links Awakening - 2019 - (Switch) - 4/5 This was a weird one... the original was one of the very first games I remember getting DEEPLY engrossed in as a kid, to the point that it's probably responsible (along with Monkey Island) for getting me involved in game design all these years later. So a lot of nostalgia and weird expectations. It was gorgeous, weird, and really charming, none of that has changed. But, I just sorta blew threw it without any kind of challenge or hiccups, and it's not because I've played it over and over through the years, it's just a breeze. The new quality of life additions were great, but the dungeon builder thing was a big letdown. It felt great to play, but kinda inconsequential.
  7. Gears 5 (XB1) - 2019 - 4/5 Blew Gears 4 out of the water in every respect imo. Probably the best shooter I've played in a long time, and I loved about 2/3 of the campaign but felt it lost its way a little in some areas. Multiplayer seems fun, but I haven't had a lot of time to pour into that side of it. Sayonara Wild Hearts (Switch) - 4/5 Super short and simple but nails what it does really well. Super slick electro pop and amazing visuals with some flow-inducing levels and mechanics. A few of the levels do some really neat and unexpected things.
  8. Control (XB1) - 2019 - 5/5 - 1000G MUTHAFUCKA Uh, absolutely entirely my shit. Cool art, great writing, cool combat, lots of secrets to find.
  9. Life Is Strange 2: Episode 4 (PS4) - 3/5 Not as good as the last one, probably because it's focus was on a series of new characters rather than the ones that have been introduced before. Still, a good setup for the finale.
  10. Life Is Strange 2: Episode 3 (PS4) - 4/5 Now it feels like it's hitting its stride! It all takes place in a fairly limited area, but the story and characters are digging in and there's some real good shit in this one.
  11. It definitely stands out from the rest of the 3D Zeldas from a pure visual and personality standpoint. Ocarina/Majora/Twilight are all fairly closely related, Skyward Sword is like a weird mix between the two styles and has some of the best and some of the worst things about the series in it. I wish we could have gotten a Wind Waker that had the same time and resources behind it as Twilight Princess. I just want more of it!
  12. Zelda: Twilight Princess HD (WiiU) - 2019 - 2/5 Ehhhhhhhhh, this didn't age as well I hoped it had. Definitely a major step below Wind Waker, I was disappointed at how disappointed I was So much of it felt like a hollow retread of Ocarina, and though it has some super cool dungeons and bosses, most of them just sorta flopped out without much personality.
  13. Outer Wilds (PC) - 2019 - 5/5 Simply amazing indie puzzle/explore-em-up - full of mystery, fun to unravel and understand, and a great ending too. Cadence of Hyrule (Switch) - 2019 - 4/5 A fun twist on a top-down Zelda. I was shite at Crypt of the Necrodancer, but this has some progression built in that helps ease the pain a bit. It's fairly short, but I could see going back to replay it with a different character.

    Seems extremely interesting on paper, but lots of unknowns still. Biggest wins I can see for it would be opening up games to a much, much wider audience. Fortnite got so huge because it was on phones as well as consoles/PC, so if this can help more games do that it'll be awesome. It might not be my preferred way to play, but I can see the benefits.
