  1. 20/08 - The Magnificent Truffle Pigs (Switch) - Rather boring walking sim that has you metal detecting whilst talking to a long lost friend. I didn't get the ending. The music is great and perfectly suits the game. Good job @noob

     

    20/08 - Idol Days (Switch) - short visual novel about a delinquent who becomes an idol. I enjoyed it, but mainly because it reminded me of some of the Haruka storylines in the Yakuza series.

     

    12/09 - The House in Fata Morgana: A Requiem for Innocence (Switch) - companion piece to the main game that fleshes out the background to parts of the main story. Recommended if you enjoyed the main game and want more.

     

    27/09 - Forza Horizon 5 (Xbox Series) - I bought this at launch and got dragged down by the absolute mess of icons for events the game throws at you in the first few hours of play. I understand the approach to allow you to have flexibility to do the types of races that you want, but it's just hugely offputting. Once you apply heavy filters and slowly work your way through sections of the map, it has some form of structure. In many ways this is more of the same compared to the prior game, but with an interesting map and a lot more single player events. It's probably the third best game in the series (after the original and the third), however I wish they'd return to the structure of the original where you work your way up versus various rivals with boss battles etc.

     

    27/10 - Blind Men (PS4) - short visual novel that's very much a James Bond spoof from the perspective of the bad guy. Enjoyable.

    Sonic Adventure was only good at that exact moment in time and even then it was mostly the first level that impressed graphically. Try going back to it now...

     

    I did. Or at least the Xbox 360 version. It really hasn’t aged well.

    Most parts of Lost World were pretty good too.

     

    Imo, there's only really been 3 enjoyable 3D Sonic games over the past two decades: Sonic Adventure, Sonic Colours and Sonic Lost World. With Colours being the best.

     

    Sonic Colours was in 3D?

    Is Resi 6 a decent £8-worth if I go in knowing full well it’s a cheesy action game set in the RE universe and not survival horror or anything like the others? Basically is it a bad RE or a bad game?

     

    It’s very marmite.

    £65 is the cheapest I can find this on PS5. Am I right in thinking there’s no free PS4 to PS5 upgrade?

     

    You have to pay. Think it's £10 for the upgrade

    Errr, I fucked and bought a yearly family subscription from Game at lunchtime. The regular family yearly sub. Which I can’t use as I currently have some weeks left of an annual expansion pass. What do I do? Obv. I’ll sell it on here (for less) if I have to write it off otherwise.

     

    Wait until your expansion pass expires? Those codes are valid for a while.

    The Mummy Demastered is on sale for £7 at the moment. Seems very promising so far! I look forward to playing more, and perhaps adding it to my list of best Metroidvanias on Switch, which at the moment includes Metroid Dread, Hollow Knight, Blasphemous and Axiom Verge. 

     

    If you like Metroid as opposed to Castlevania then it might be ok. I hated it.

    Is the Spyro series particularly good? I'm in the mood for a 3D platformer and with the collection being cheap on Switch am torn between that and replaying Banjo or giving Yooka Laylee another shot (I realise the latter may be a bad idea anyway but that's a separate thread). At the time I completely ignored them since the PS1 seemed to be burdened with a number of 3D platformers that either seemed to be aimed at kids or just plain bad, and having played Super Mario 64 only the best was good enough for me.

     

    Ape Escape?

  9. 3D Dot Game Heroes is the only game I’ve ever purchased from CEX to get lost in the post. If you buy from CEX online it’s Russian Roulette as to the condition of the game, and whether you will receive a manual etc. Anyhow it got lost, and per their website when I raised a request for a refund they had no copies in stock, so I simply expected a refund. Much to my surprise they sent me an actual copy in near perfect condition. I still haven’t played it.

    The police chases were feeble, but yeah, I really enjoyed that one too. It looked amazing, and the road network was beautifully designed - a nice mix of sweeping curves to drift round and highways to sprint along. There was plenty wrong with it, but there was a good foundation there. It was a shame they seemed to have chucked everything away for the next game.

     

    Payback? I liked that despite the focus being on loot boxes (subsequently removed) when I played it. It was essentially NFS Horizon.

    I imagine it would look amazing on an OLED.

    The backdrops and the city have the same aesthetic as Need for Speed 2015, which is promising - that was the visual pinnacle of the series, and (in my opinion) one of the best-looking videogames ever made.

     

    I think the quality of an NFS game comes down to one thing - are the police chases any good? - but this looks the part.

     

    Was that the one with the FMV cut scenes?

    The original Switch release was not the remastered version though, just a straight port. But I see on the eshop it now says remastered.US site doesn't say remastered so I think its a mistake on the UK site maybe? Still a bargain though, great game.

     

    I'm not sure if they added anything to the PS4 version other than higher resolution graphics and 60FPS?

    Is this going to be suitable for a 8yo? My eldest is just finishing off Grandia 2 and we’re looking for her next jrpg. 

     

    Maybe. It’s essentially Game of Thrones the game. However, I think a lot of the subject matter would pass over an 8 year old’s head and they’d be delighted by dog villages, ninja villages and huge dragons.

    They’ve got a lot of work to do to make Suikoden II passable by modern standards - aside from the dodgy plot (there were some ludicrous narrative leaps that made the FFVIII kindergarten twist look pretty reasonable), there were entire dialogue exchanges that hadn’t been translated and were left with gibberish characters or stray bits of text from other parts of the game.

     

    I got along much better with the first game, but that was hampered by having no diagonal movement at all. I’m sure they will sort this stuff… unless this is getting a similar amount of attention that the GTA remasters got.

     

    From what I recall the dialogue/translation issues was corrected for the PAL release.

    I'm actually playing Suikoden II at the moment and wondering why everybody raved about it (and still does). It's okay and I will see it through, but I'd be interested as to why it has th reputation it does.

     

    I felt the same when I played the first game a couple of years ago, too. There's a some charm in the idea of collecting all the characters, but most of those available for actual fighting you will never use/are rubbish/need a lot of grinding to make worthwhile so it is a bit of a novelty. The script is awful too. 

     

    There's very little grinding. Low level characters level up super quickly.
