  1. Dragon Age 2 (2011) - Series X (BC) Mix of work research and curiosity since I'd only previously played Inquisition for any considerable stint of time. I know it gets a bad rap for the repeated levels and constant loads, but the BC on Series X made loading times barely noticeable and polished up the resolution and frame rate that it felt modern enough. Not sure I clicked with the characters or world as much as I have with Inquisition or the ME games, but it was enjoyable and had some really great moments throughout.
  2. New Pokemon Snap (2021) - Switch This was a lot of fun. Hadn't played the original, but spent a good few evenings throwing apples at small animals with my wife. A bunch of rare and hidden ones still to go after finishing the main story.
  3. I've bought this game like 3 times, and started it 3 times, and never got farther than the intro.
  4. I've been in a total game slump this year. Started about 20 things and barely played anything for more than 20 minutes. If I finish one this year I'll be happy!
  5. World of Warcraft: Shadowlands (campaign) (PC) - 2020 - 4/5 It shall never truly be done, but I'll call it for now. Really enjoyable campaign, maybe not quite as fun as Legion but definitely better than BFA and most since Wrath. Tons of cool dungeons, the raid has been fun so far, and the class changes are feeling good. Most of the way through AC: Valhalla, but Shadowlands drew my attention away, so we'll see if I get it done before the year's out.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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!
  11. It's definitely a lot more puzzly, but it left me feeling a bit cold on it overall.
  12. 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.
  13. Just realised you posted this a few months ago, I need to read the forum more often lol.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
