27/07 - GRID Legends (PS5) - Other than the addition of a story mode and a few new car classes (electric; drift, possibly some others) this is largely more of the same compared to 2019's GRID. The story mode has an awful storyline with full video cut scenes, that's incredibly poorly acted (it's not quite as bad as the full video they put into one of the Need for Speeds but still bad) and largely serves to introduce you to all the different car classes and types of races. Career mode is an absolute grind, with many races being locked until you've driven a car a minimum number of miles and a ridiculous number of events. I abandoned the career mode after around a 100 events due to the grind, however I completed the story mode which triggered the credits so counting as complete. Good if you like Codemasters racing games.
07/08 - Picross S: Mega Drive & Master System Version (Switch) - Picross x Old School Sega. This is a very nostalgic take on the Picross S forumula with all the pictures relating to classic Mega Drive and Master System games, which in my opinion definitely elevated it over other games in the genre. It's much easier than some of the other Picross S games with few challenging puzzles in the standard Picross mode. Very good.
13/08 - The House In Fata Morgana (Switch) - visual novel covering the events in a cursed mansion over a period spanning a millennia. This was fantastic, a great story and some excellent music. The only small downside is that it's very linear, with no branching story paths - it's a case of select the correct choice to proceed with the story or select the wrong choice to get a bad or alternative ending there and then.
16/08 - KUUKIYOMI 2: Consider It More! - New Era (Switch) - Face 100 scenarios and be evaluated at how considerate a person you are. It reminded me a little of Wario Ware in that the first time you face a scenario it's not immediately clear what you should be doing and what button presses are actually valid. However, unlike that game there's next to no replayability, not helped by a vague scoring system. An interesting diversion but nothing more.
