  1. Also of the last 6 games I've finished I've only paid for the Control DLC (like a chump after the next-gen upgrade news, too!). Game Pass fucking owns.
  2. Spiritfarer (XB1) - 2020 - 5/5 Absolutely wonderful sorta town-builder, relationship-manager, mild-platformer that looks FUCKING AMAZING. This came at just the right time (i.e. the lowest) during lockdown, and it was such a positive and warming experience. Loved it. Control: Foundation DLC (XB1) - 3/5 Mostly more Control, which I had a lot of fun with. Was hard to tell what was new in the expansion vs. new in updates, but there was some cool new stuff to play with. The story was decent, but not as good as the main game. It included a sorta repeatable, infinite horde mode thing, but I
  3. Pre-ordered a Series X, mostly cause it's gonna be of immediate value with GamePass for new games, and backwards compat while I wait for more of the new new titles to come out. I'll get a PS5 eventually, but besides some multi-plat stuff there isn't much unique to the console I want that will be out soon. Not sure if I'll go discless or not, but leaning that way since I'll have the Series X for blurays and stuff. Game Pass has really been an amazing investment this past year or so, and that's the main thing pushing me over from being a massive PS4 fanboy this gen. Still a ton I haven
  4. 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
  5. 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!
  6. It's definitely a lot more puzzly, but it left me feeling a bit cold on it overall.
  7. Final Fantasy VII (PSX on PS4) - 1997 - 4/5 After initially getting this on Switch, my wife discovered Animal Crossing and now lives on the Switch, so I bought it again for PS4 Definitely parts of it that haven't aged so well, and I was happy to have the 3x speed assist considering this was like my 5th or 6th playthrough, but it's still an awesome experience overall.
  8. Just realised you posted this a few months ago, I need to read the forum more often lol.
  9. Final Fantasy VII Remake (PS4) - 2020 - 5/5 Well howdy, they did a great job on this. A couple of minor niggles on execution, but generally the story and combat updates were fantastic. Often, I found myself getting extremely invested despite knowing basically what's going on, and the combat felt fluid and exciting throughout. Not keen to wait a couple of years for Part 2, but I've already downloaded the original on Switch to keep me busy.
  10. It's been a while, but I seem to recall getting momentum before you go in and using that to let you drift past them. It'll take a while, but as long as you wait long enough you should be able to start nudging the throttle again to re-orient
  11. Resident Evil 5 - Co-op (360 on XB1) - 2009 - 2/5 Oof, I remember enjoying this a lot more at the time but it hasn't aged well at all. It starts off well enough, but as soon as it starts getting into the gun-toting zombies and Wesker's bullshit it really falls off a cliff. After coming off the RE2 remake, I really missed the days when RE leaned more into the horror aspects. This - and to an extent 4 before it - got a bit full of themselves and making everyone a superhero. Resident Evil 3 Remake (XB1) - 2020 - 4/5 A bit rougher around the edges compared to the RE2 remake and
  12. Ditto on TP, replayed it recently and just struggled to connect with any of it. Some cool mechanics and locations for the dungeons, but overall bit of a snore-fest. I'd absolutely take a modern sequel in the same style as WW though. I loved everything about that game, and getting to spend more time in it, doing more dungeons and seeing more parts of the world (outside of the heavily-gimmicky DS games) would be fantastic.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
