Last Game You Finished And Your Four-ghts - Page 2 Control-art

Control sits on an 84 on Opencrtic and after finishing it last night (I even did some side quests), I would tend to agree as it's that sort of game if it did one or two things different or better it could be a must-have top tier title.

Just it has performance issues on all consoles and I've seen on PS4 where most of you would play it drops under 10fps, the ending makes sense for the game and the whole twilight zone stuff, just it maybe could have been better.

Cool collectables like it brings up Alan Wake if you do read those, side quests can be fun with the objects of power like the fridge.

It's a vey good game and I hope Remedy does have succes with this as they're a great studio but most there games haven't set the world on fire.

I enjoyed Control too, the performance didn’t seem to be much of a problem outside of pausing the game which seemed to confuse it (though it did crash during the end cutscenes for me 😂)

Enjoyed the gameplay, story was utter dross though.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom battle

Finished this off last night and while I did enjoy it overall it didn't really do anything I haven't seen before in the genre, I also think they missed a massive opportunity to have this be a fully voiced Mario game (not for Mario, natch but the other characters like beep-0 & Bowser Jr etc.) plus I actually expected it after that very Pixar-like opening cut scene & then again with that great boss fight in world 3.

So, yeah it was good but I've played better TBT games before.

You're a bit of a genre expert, aren't you Jas?  At Western ones, I mean (I know you can't be doing with the weeb stuff).  

Also I don't think it's entirely fair to say it's done nothing new when it's both a Mario & Rabbids crossover and Mario's first strategy game.  Maybe not in the gameplay, but I think overall it's done enough to give itself some leeway to be fairly standard on the gameplay side, at least in this first game in what might become a franchise.  Of course I made very little progress and am not a genre expert and am a big Mario fan, so my view is obviously skewed.

Last Game You Finished And Your Four-ghts - Page 2 Black-10

Black Bird

I bought this a couple of weeks ago when it was half price, primarily because it's the latest game by the brilliantly barmy Yoshiro Kimura (of Little King's Story, No More Heroes and Million Onion Hotel fame). It's short, even for a shmup - only 4 levels, each with an accompanying boss - so I'm not sure it would be worth paying full price (£15) for. But it's beautifully weird, and a lot of fun, and it has unusual mechanics - and is obviously designed to be more of a score attack game. I really enjoyed it. I award it one Asparagus Man

Oh don't get me wrong as it definitely stands out in other ways for sure, but for me gameplay is king and although it done it well (I liked the game) I've just seen it before is all. If sequels happen I'll be keeping an eye out for them but I probably just won't be balls to wall excited for them.

Have I hit an anime nerve or something? As you've replied a bunch to me recently with digs/jokes like this, I'm quite open to most genres obut as above the gameplay will have to be really good to sell me on them. (Astral Chain is the perfect & most recent example of this)

No no, it's just I don't remember you trying the Fire Emblem games either, although I will admit that I didn't think you liked anime full stop.

You use a Pro don't you Andy, I think the rest part from Jay uses a base PS4. Trying to cover most people and how they will play Control.

Anyway

Last Game You Finished And Your Four-ghts - Page 2 Images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTaCMeI2m-n6euWt2EgeYGSNld5N653RrOzlZnkmVZR8FZJu-RP

I'm a big fan of Until Dawn and games like it such as Heavy Rain, that Man of Medan was always going to catch my eye. And it's nowhere near as good as Until Dawn, I can sort of let it off as it's a £25 budget title that is part of this Dark Pictures Anthology which is held together by the curator who is telling you the story.

That when Man of Medan ends, you get a trailer for the next game and it sort feels like what Telltale was doing but instead of episodes, you get 4hr games each year.  

If you like these sort of games and for the price, it might be worth a look and maybe the multiplayer movie mode would be fun with mates as someone could be the dick and try to get everyone killed.

Last Game You Finished And Your Four-ghts - Page 2 3575501-review_catherinefullbody_20190829_1_b

Catherine Full Body is an enhanced version of the 2011 game which has gained a bit of a cult status. It is a game that's remained in and around my Top 25 for years as it oozes style much like Atlus Persona series and going back to it after playing Persona more, I get the vibe even more.

This enhanced version adds new endings, scenes and Rin. I got to say I really liked Rin, out of the three Catherines shes te most likeable but I still ended up with the ending I got the first time I played it.

Now in 2019 some of it is even more questionable then it was in 2011 in regards to some of the characters, now I'm not sure if this is how some people would react in real life or not, is debatable and others have written/spoke about it who have a better understanding of this than me.

I still don't think that new ending is that bad as some make out, though.

I think the focus on movement and traversal, to the point of almost being a platformer in a sense when you are chaining together jumps to damage enemies and boost your allies up onto ledges, definitely sets the game apart in the genre. Are there other games like that I'm missing out on?

While I can't think of any specific game off the top of my head right now there's plenty units/characters in the genre that will focus on movement being their main strength.

Last Game You Finished And Your Four-ghts - Page 2 0_Xbox-Gears-5-Ultimate-Edition

Gears 4 was a tad disappointing and at the time I thought here we go again after Halo 4/5/MC a new studio has taken over and the games were just okay treading the same ground.

Now here we are with Gears 5 which might be one of the best games of the year let alone on Xbox One, the only real issue it has is
Spoiler:
 
apart from that, it looks great, VO is top-notch (Laura Bailey to win at TGA?), the new semi open-world elements bring a new dimension to the series as well.

Plus this came out on Friday on Game Pass Ultimate and I've only just finished as I've been playing a lot of multiplayer, plus I've not touched Escape or Horde yet. Tons of content, in various ways to chainsaw your enemy.




Just going to edit this one in

Last Game You Finished And Your Four-ghts - Page 2 Blair-witch-video-game

If you watched MS conference from E3, you may remember this one as how it starts off I thought we were getting a new Silent Hill. It turned out to be Blair Witch instead which came to Game Pass last month.

With some bigger games around at the moment I've just got around to playing it and it's a-okay horror game, it's certinaly fitting for Game Pass as it's something I wouldn't have paid £25 to play but still enjoyed playing it.

I guess it come PS4 and I couldn't see why a Switch version couldn't be done at some point.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Last Game You Finished And Your Four-ghts - Page 2 Hqdefault

I finished this last night at around 3am. It's been all I can think about ever since. At the gym this morning I was just listening to various versions and covers of the main song, getting emotional when bits of cutscenes and stuff showed up.

Right. I'll just come out and say this. I loved this game. Absolutely, positively, unequivocally loved every single aspect of it and how they came together as a whole. I was attached to the characters, their stories and the relationships between them. I was gripped by the main plot and how the characters' motivations and beliefs and relationships aligned in the grander narrative. I was addicted to the various systems and mechanisms that made up the gameplay. I know compared to some of you guys it may seem like I haven't played much, but in only a month I piled more than 60 hours into this despite having a full-time job, a girlfriend in town, podcasts to work on and a new exercise regime.

Loved it.

I played as the Golden Deer, mainly because that seemed slightly less Tory than going with a kingdom or an Empire. I was briefly disappointed when I realised that decision put me on one side of a certain conflict, but overall I did agree very strongly with Claude's principals and ideals, and by the end I was extremely satisfied with my outcome. That being said, various moments throughout the story have made me excited to play through the other stories!

I played the game on Hard and Casual. Ultimately, I think that was the right choice for this playthrough. The difficulty made it feel like I really needed to know what I was doing to get through battles without losing lots of units. Occasionally someone did have to be  sacrificed, and while I've no doubt it does lend a certain dramatic weight if they can be lost permanently, my desire to save them and subsequent resetting and restarting of battles to get them just right would have hampered my enjoyment.

I reckon for my other playthroughs, I'm gonna do the Black Eagles on Normal but with death - ruthlessness feels appropriate there, but I don't want to make it too hard for myself if I'm gonna do both second halves. Finally, I'll do the Blue Lions as hardcore as possible. I get the impression their story is all about suffering, anyway.
That all being said, that'll be a while off yet. I've got other stuff to play, stuff to write and record, trips and so on, and this game was a pretty dominant presence in my life!

Besides the combat, I also really enjoyed the school life, soap opera aspect of everything. Like I said, I loved all my friends. I actually wasn't disappointed by the stripping back of the romance stuff. My defence in Awakening was to liken it to shipping characters in any other work of fiction, but getting to play matchmaker. My approach had always been to try to set couples up if I liked their relationship after their first interaction. That aspect still existed, but with much less control it felt less like eugenics or something clinical and digital. If I liked the way a relationship was going, I would try to pair them up but there was no guarantee, and I just had to watch it play out, or imagine it in my head.

Some favourite characters/ pairings.:
 

10/10

Definitely my GotY so far, but I've got a new Platinum game and a new Pokemon game to be going on with yet . . . and a sort-of-new Zelda, a mech game which may or may not be shite, and lots of indies.
