    Stadia

    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.

    2019 Game Completion Thread

    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

    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.

    Pokemon Sword & Shield

    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

    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.

    Resident Evil 2 Demo

    I was reading up on the HDR and supposedly it might just be the demo? Fingers crossed, caused it didn't look very good. Otherwise, this really got me interested - I was a bit on the fence before I played, but since finishing the demo I've been thinking about how great it felt to play, and I'm really interested in the changes they've been making to keep the game interesting.

    Titanfall 2 (PC) - 2016 - 4/5 First of the year, and one from the backlog. Apparently I had only ever played the first level of this before, so I missed all the amazing stuff that comes later on. As good a shooter campaign as the hype suggests!

    2018 Game Completion Thread

    Assassins Creed: Odyssey (PS4) - 2018 - 4/5 This was a double-edged one for me... LOVED characters, setting, overall plot ... DIDN'T LOVE the length and bloat (finished the 3 main story branches and a massive amount of side quests in ~80hrs and still only finished about 60% of the map). The side quests were mostly really well put together, so I wanted to see as much as I could, but doing that just really took the wind out of the sails of any kind of narrative they were trying to lay out over the whole game. The prospect of doing more + the DLCs feels exhausting, rather than it being something to look forward to.

    Yeah, I guess since the original Halo trilogy came out the whole sci-fi shooter genre exploded and everything new or exciting got eaten up pretty fast. Everything felt very surface level about the campaign.

    Absolutely LOVED that game. I didn't seem to care about the actual side content bits being very repetitive because swinging between them was so much fun.

    2018 Game Completion Thread

    Halo 5 (XB1) - 2015 - 3/5 (Co-Op) Played through this with my brother across the water and it didn't quite hit the high notes of what I remember of Halo 3. There was a lot of dead space, and empty feeling encounters, which took the wind out of the epic space adventure feeling. The plot was absolutely garbage, as well, but there were enough stand out levels and co-op shenanigans that it was worth playing through.

    Forza Horizon 4 (XB1) - 2018 - 5/5 Not sure this technically has an end, but I've played through the "campaign" and unlocked the rolling online events, and played through a bunch of those too so I'm calling it done. I'm not usually a fan of racing games, but this came up in the Game Pass and I thought I'd give it a go - I'm glad I did! It lands in just the sweet spot between arcadey + sim for me, and the events were nice and varied too. I get so bored of circuit racing games, so to be able to explore a chunk of British countryside and bomb around Edinburgh was just what I was looking for.

    Life Is Strange 2: Episode 1 (PS4) - 2018 - 4/5 Super promising start to the new season and new characters are all great. Goes from about 0-dark super quick, and it's going to be interesting to see where it goes. There's not a great deal of new mechanics in this episode - there's a fairly light sketching mini-game which seems more about character than any kind of skill-based stuff; some interesting interactions where you can optionally do things yourself or involve your brother; some improved UI.

    Don't get me wrong, it wasn't a bad game, it just wasn't great and felt oddly lesser than what I remember of the original reboot. I still played it a ton

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider (PS4) - 2018 - 3/5 I don't know if it was coming off the back of Spider-man that did it, something else in the game or just the wrong tone/mood for post lay-off gaming, but this didn't click for me. As a whole, the experience didn't seem to cohere all that well - there were mechanics and tools introduced that seemed to have maybe one or two uses in the entire campaign; Lara's voice actor and performance really grated for me in a way that it never did in the original reboot; the plot seemed to barely keep itself together. I haven't played Rise yet, so I'm not sure if I'd feel the same way about that game, but beyond being beautiful to look at, this just didn't cut it.
