More that I can't say hey you're wrong or someone is about a well regarded game based on review score (even though you're all wrong about GRIS and possibly will be about 13S), when myself I don't think some critically acclaimed games are all that (even if I am right).

Picked TOEM up in the eShop sale, and played last night as it's a nice relaxing game where you go around taking photos for challenges. Think TOEM came out last year when we suddenly had like 8 photography based games come out, I still prefer New Pokémon Snap yet that is on rails, where in TOEM you do get to wander around the levels finding all your challenges, which it is far better than Pupperazzi.

Mate TOEM is fantastic, how dare you prefer Pokemon Snap. I'll bloody snap you if you start spreading rumors like that around...

Well we both liked it, so maybe others should pick up whilst on sale.

I can't say I'm not t(o)empted, but I didn't get on with (the original) Pokémon Snap as much as many, so it's not a high priority.

I don't think many of y'all are going to give a monkey's about a very anime JRPG that doesn't really do anything new, so I'll put the next game (which I have overmuch to say about considering that fact) into a spoiler.  It's good, just.

Yeah the only real similarity between the two games is the camera, they play wildly different, I gave TOEM a 8/10 back on page 5 of this thread, if we must compare it to Pokémon Snap then I'd definitely say I preferred TOEM over last year's Snap.

Yeah just happen to be photo based games, which was a few last year for some reason.

Still BG&E, the best photography game.

I'm not sure a free-roaming non-combat adventure really appeals either, see Chicory on that subject.


La5t Game You Fini5hed And Your Thought5 - Page 13 Turnip-2-1536x864

What does appeal is Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion!  You play a law-defying turnip who goes through dungeons that feel like microcosms of 2D Zelda dungeons, in a game that feels like a microcosm of 2D Zelda.  It only lasts 2-3h, but unlike other shorter games it's excellently paced, with just the right level of gameplay variety, story beets, and escalating tension.  Plays nicely too, but what you're really here for is the writing: it throws a stream of jokes at you, and most of them land.  Even if one doesn't there's another one along in a minute.  Lotsa laughs, although if the idea of clicking 'okie' instead of 'okay' makes you hurl then maybe steer clear.  It goes surprisingly dark places too.

It's not perfect sadly.  The limited sword combat feels floaty and unsatisfying, the soundtrack is quite foul (although well-matched enough that I thought it worked in situ), and the visually simple game twice developed frame rate hiccoughs that only resetting it entirely would cure.  Still though, as what is apparently a student project, it shines.  I had a grand, if short, thyme with it.  A high 7/10.

That just come to Game Pass, maybe I'll give it an installation, then never play it.

La5t Game You Fini5hed And Your Thought5 - Page 13 Maxresdefault

TSORF is a few hours long Walking Sim with some horror stuff even though it's done in a Gone Home way, also a bit of Firwatch as someone on a phone to you throughout the game.

It is darker in terms of themes compared to Gone Home, which you can guess from the game's title, then what led to those events.

I liked it and think I paid about £3 on Switch in the sale.

La5t Game You Fini5hed And Your Thought5 - Page 13 H2x1_NSwitchDS_Skelattack_image1600w

Skelattack is one of the most promising games I’ve played in a long time. It’s a gorgeously animated Metroidvania with high production values, loads of likeable characters with fun snippets of dialogue, and a varied and suitably atmospheric soundtrack that deserves to be heard. The story – about rekindling spirits from the dead and confronting your past life – and the unoriginal scenery aren’t up to the same high standard admittedly, but they’re perfectly fine and they serve their purpose. I quite like that Skelattack gets right to the point too, taking me just shy of five hours to complete.

So close to brilliance, and yet so far. Where Skelattack badly falls down is in its outrageously uneven difficulty level. Skelattack is a game that’s all too happy to punish you, and deaths happen often – and often extremely cheaply. I really don’t know why, but the developer has got a massive raging hard-on for awkwardly-positioned insta-kill spikes. They’re jumbled across everywhere and anywhere you’d carry on with your adventure and search for treasure and potions. Consequently, Skelattack’s platforming requires unrelenting precision. But then, this near-sadistic challenge is counter-balanced by checkpoints that, no joke, you pass every ten seconds. You die all the time and in the most frustrating ways imaginable, but because there’s literally hundreds of checkpoints around there’s basically no punishment for death (apart from losing your currency which, to be honest, you don’t really need). Skelattack manages to be too hard and too easy at the same time, it’s quite an abnormal feat of game design. In other criticisms, Skelattack’s wall-jumping is sloppily handled. You can never reliably cling onto walls or bounce off of them, which is really irritating in a game that requires the precision platforming that I was typing about, and doubly so in a game where wall-jumping is used in pretty much every segment. I think I could do a better wall jump. The combat is similarly arse. Never amounting to much more than clumsy button-mashing, it’s got none of the flair or style of other Metroidvanias I’ve enjoyed, like Guacamelee. At least there’s much less combat than wall-jumping and insta-kill spikes I suppose.

It’s a bit of a shame. Skelattack is carried by its endearing presentation, music and characters, and I think those make it worth a playthrough. That’s especially seeing as Skelattack is often on sale – I bought it for 90% off late last year, for around £1.59. You’ll definitely get value for money with a similar discount. On the other hand with much more polish and a consistent approach to its difficulty, Skelattack could have definitely been much more than it is. In this (surprisingly unpatched) state Skelattack is very flawed. But all the same, it’s nice for me to come across a game that I enjoyed more than the critics did. 7/10.

Aw no!  The devil of game design itself!  And the thing that killed Cave Story for me.  Given that, I doubt I'd get 7/10 fun out of Skelattack.


Is the 3DS retro yet?  I'm not sure.  Given that you can still just about acquire this elsewhere, I'm putting it in here rather than the equivalent retro thread, but it's a borderline case.

La5t Game You Fini5hed And Your Thought5 - Page 13 Large

Probably the last 3DS game I'll get off the shop, I polished off Weapon Shop de Omasse yesterday, and for the most part I had a really good time with it.  You forge weapons for customers by tapping away at metal to the beat, then follow the quests those customers go on via bugs you work into your weapons that become fantasy Twitter.  It's joyously written, genuinely entertaining if not quite laugh-out-loud.  It's lovely to look at for a 3DS game (albeit that's helped by its very limited visual scope), and easy to play.  The soundtrack, as befits a rhythm game, is good too: the music's fine, but frankly it's the sitcom-style laugh track that makes it.  

Although the fact that it's difficult to follow the fantasy Twitter that makes up the meat of the game while you're smithing away was a noticeable setback, none of the game's flaws were too affecting... at least, not until the end.  The game is so well-written, and tells decent stories with it - and then ends on a massive shrug.  None of the customers' stories interlink, the ending such as it is is such a wet fart, and the game tells you to defeat the final boss with every main customer to get something more, only for that 'something more' to be a gross disappointment with no narrative weight at all.  An absolute travesty.  

For eight out of the eight-and-a-half hours, though, this was a little bit of a gem.  It won't appeal to those who don't like their games too talky, and it might be a bit lightweight to be anybody's main game for any length of time; but it would fit nicely into a rotation of multiple titles.  Sigh...  Remember when Level-5 could do no wrong?  This is a slightly sad reminder.  7/10

NLH, I picked up on a eShop sale in the USA yesterday which you can guess posting now it's short, at around a hour long. NLH isn't a great game, even for someone that likes these types of games, but I’m glad it exits as I can't think of any other game with a non-binary couple (I can't even think of any characters even) for that should get some praise, why it was up for an impact award.

La5t Game You Fini5hed And Your Thought5 - Page 13 1-3

Here’s some quick thoughts on Grand Theft Auto: Vice City – The Definitive Edition on Switch. While based on the building blocks of the monumentally influential GTA III, Vice City established its own unforgettable atmosphere. I’d say Vice City’s believable ‘80s setting is definitely the reason why it’s the more fondly remembered game. An incredible critical and commercial success back in its day and frequently placed on ‘Greatest Games of All Time’ lists, it’s not unfair to call Vice City one of the most iconic and beloved games ever.

You can’t have missed the critical mauling that the Definitive Edition got from all corners late last year. Perhaps like you, all the impressions I read and heard were that The Trilogy was released in really poor condition, where from any perspective all three of its games were in an inexcusable state. In the six months since then there’s been waves of patches to sort out the most egregious of its abuses. Playing through the most up-to-date version of Vice City – The Definitive Edition as of May 2022, I don’t think their work is complete.

Disappointingly, the quality of my experience was undone a bit by fairly regular framerate problems, graphical glitches and gameplay bugs. There was the occasional crash to boot. And I know that this has already been discussed at length virtually everywhere else, but the visuals aren’t what you’d expect from a remaster of a game from twenty years ago. Strangely blurry, plastic-ey and low-quality with loads of pop-up and rubbish-looking textures, it looks and feels like something you’d have perhaps experienced on the Wii in 2008, rather than something that’s well-placed in the ninth generation of gaming. I appreciate modern quality of life updates such as the mission checkpoint system and weapon auto-aiming, but despite numerous fixes Vice City – The Definitive Edition remains pretty rough and unpolished.

Happily, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City still holds up superbly two decades later. It’s a testament to the quality of the original game that it can just about overcome all of these disappointments. Above all else, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City – The Definitive Edition still has all that freedom that makes any Grand Theft Auto game a massive amount of fun to play – just with more Spandau Ballet. All the exploration, gunfights, vehicles, jumps and missions are still here, and so too is the entertaining story, the memorable characters, the dark sense of humour and the best-of-all-time soundtrack.

No, this uncaring, sloppily-made and badly-optimised Definitive Edition isn’t the remaster that Vice City deserved. You can’t help but wonder what could have been with the whole Trilogy if, you know, Rockstar were arsed before they were utterly shamed into sorting it out. But it’s not a complete write-off. At least in Vice City’s case, it’s still a brilliant game at heart. Let’s see if Rockstar do any more work on this, and maybe do it justice. 7/10.

That might be part of a great trilogy and others like LotR or Star Wars come to mind, yet joining them now is

La5t Game You Fini5hed And Your Thought5 - Page 13 107891_My_Name_is_Mayo_3

Only the medium of video games can tell such an emotional plot about a jar of Mayo, who gets wrapped in some saucy things where its girlfriend wants some of that white stuff all over her. This leads to Mayo suffering from depression, yet finding himself with his buddy Muss the Mustard.

I can't put into words how good of a game this is and how this epic trilogy has ended.
