    2018 Game Completion Thread

    Yakuza 0 (PS4) - 2017 - 3/5 As my first ever foray into the Yakuza series, I had absolutely no idea what to expect, and boy is it a weird one! One one hand, it's a real grim and gritty crime story, dotted with the most absurd side missions and distractions. I'm not sure it all landed for me, especially given I'd never played one of them before, but I'm interested in trying out the new remasters of the old games as they're a lot shorter and more focused.

    Sweet, liking the new style!

    Anthem - POC - PS4 - Bone

    I bounced off Destiny 1 & 2 so hard after the first few weeks that I'm worried I'll do the same with something trying to emulate that experience. I'm hesitantly waiting for the reviews on this one.

    Assassins Creed: Origins: Curse of the Pharaohs DLC (PS4) - 2018 - 4/5 Goes to some really interesting places, looks utterly gorgeous, has some cool bosses, but ultimately there's just too much of this game. This AC would have been a 5/5 for me if it had been like 20-30 hours shorter.

    The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit (PS4) - 2018 - 3/5 Life Is Strange 2 prequel chapter, it was a good little slice of fun, but I think Before The Storm was much better put together.

    From the same studio as Until Dawn, but less fun! It uses your mobile phone so that several people can play together, but the competitive elements seemed at odds with the mystery aspects of completing the game and we're often pretty random. The plot was fairly predictable, but it was more the group-play stuff that was fun about it all. Looked gorgeous though!

    God of War

    It's interesting how this is splitting people! I was the opposite, Ginj. Could barely raise an eyebrow to the earlier entries (played about an hour or two of 2, but bounced off and never played the others), but absolutely loved this one. Duff's right though - starting on anything other than "Balanced" makes it incredibly difficult in the early hours.

    Florence (Mobile) - 2018 - 3/5 Played this on the plane recently - just a short 45 minute game telling the story of a 20-something relationship through some interesting mechanics and zero dialogue.

    God of War (PS4) - 2018 - 5/5 I was never much of a fan of the original series, something about it just never clicked with me, so I was hesitant about this one too. The reviews before release convinced me to try it out and boy - BOY! - it was worth it. I went in almost completely clueless to it, so the story was a surprise and really thrilling, and the combat felt SO FUCKING GOOD. Still mopping up some optional bosses and stuff, going for the platinum on this one.

    Ni No Kuni 2 (PS4) - Platinum - 2/5 or 4/5 Mixed feelings about this game, despite driving for the platinum on it. Loved what it presented earlier on - a great mix of things with the combat, city building and "RTS" stuff - but grew to feel that it was quite a hollow experience by the end. So much build up, and so much potential, and it all just sort of puttered out with now reason to do most of it. I kept expecting there to be some grand challenge for all of the various pieces, but there was nothing. Still, it had its hooks in me.

    Maybe I can stream in live via the internet! Always regret being too broke / leaving the country too soon to join any of these meets.

    Ni No Kuni 2

    Got this on a whim because I'd been having A Shitty Week full of stress and misery, so all the sunshine colours and escapism felt incredibly necessary. Having not played the first one, I don't know how it compares, but it's a beautiful game so far. Story-wise, it's typical JRPG fare, but it seems to have a lot more charm to it than recent Final Fantasies, and the real-time combat system has (so far) been a bit light, but really snappy and enjoyable. I hear the combat gets a bit more taxing later on, which should be good. Only about 4-5 hours in so far, but it's got its hooks into me.

    Witchbrook: Stardew meets Hogwarts

    Agreed! My wife especially got hooked on Stardew and is a massive Harry Potter nerd, so I'm sure when this comes out we're going to need a second Switch

    Pokemon Black - DS - 2010 - 3/5 Only playing through this so that I can get some of my childhood catches up the chain into the most recent ones. It's a Pokemon game, and I'm a fanboy, but this was definitely around the time the series dipped. Some of the least inspired designs, the story started to get really ridiculous (even by Pokemon/Anime standards), and it was towards the end of the "old" era of design where little new/different was added. Tacoma - PC - 2017 - 3/5 I had high expectations given how much I'd adored Gone Home, but the story here felt a lot less compelling (even though the characters were well written). Not bad, not good!
