  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Control (XB1) - 2019 - 5/5 - 1000G MUTHAFUCKA Uh, absolutely entirely my shit. Cool art, great writing, cool combat, lots of secrets to find.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  11. Spider-Man DLC: The Heist (PS4) - 3/5 Spider-Man DLC: Turf War (PS4) - 2/5 It's more Spider-Man! Usually I'm all over DLC things for being more focused than the long main campaigns, but this time I'm not quite clicking as much with them. The first part had a bit more of an interesting story and characters, but the second was a lot more generic. Not as keen on the new enemy types being introduced, and the second episode was fairly heavy on those elements
  12. Life is Strange 2: Episode 2 (PS4) - 2019 - 3/5 Not enjoying it as much at this point, and took me a few sittings to get through this time. Usually these middle episodes are a bit slower though, so hoping it picks up in next one. Anthem (PC) - 2019 - 3/5 Played through the initial campaign and found myself veering between giddy enjoyment and skipping through bits as quickly as possible. Overall I really enjoyed it (both the single player story bits and the flying/shooting bits) but it could have been way better if it didn't feel like playing two totally different games tonally and mechanically. I'm still having fun with the end game stuff, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it gets updated over time.
  13. I am very much looking forward to this! The only problem now is that my wife is also into Pokemon after Let's Go (and she's since played through Ultra Sun), so the Switch is going to be contested territory when this comes out
  14. Star Wars Battlefront 2 (PC) - 2017 - 3/5 This was mostly for some analysis at work, but had an ok time with it second time through. Played the DLC as well. Resident Evil 2 Remake - Leon A / Claire B (XB1) - 2019 - 4/5 Jesus christ, this was tense. The early-mid sections are straight up shit yer pants tense, especially when the tyrant is stomping around. Felt like I was doing ok for most of it, but then seemed to lose my shit around the mid-point and start dying a lot. By the time I got to Claire's playthrough, I was a bit more confident but the save points and ammo were much scarcer, while the number and density of enemies seemed to increase so lots and lots of dying. Tried out Hunk's mission, which is like a greatest hits, but haven't been able to crack it yet.
