La5t Game You Fini5hed And Your Thought5 - Page 18 Kgple310

It took me a while to get back to but I'm a man of my word,  God of War 2018 is what happens when Sony takes one of its franchises and says "let's make it like our other games". That probably sounds quite negative but it's not, if ever a game needed the Sony Single Player Experience™ then it was this, I've seen criticism of this in recent weeks about taking itself too seriously but the story isn't ashamed to acknowledge that and it works in its favour.

I won't go too in depth on the story even though I assume most who wanna play will have already, it hits a lot of important beats throughout with some good character growth, revelations and redemptions. Combat is very satisfying and almost every area of the game is very pretty. The enemy variety is a little lacking and it does feel slightly padded at times with some needless backtracking but the evolving relationship between Kratos and Atreus makes it worthwhile.

All in all I really enjoyed my time with this and I'm now looking forward to Ragnarok to experience even more of this story and world.

9/10

Live A Live (Switch)

La5t Game You Fini5hed And Your Thought5 - Page 18 NSwitch_LiveALive_05_EN

It's kind of incredible that this is originally an SNES game.  It's even more incredible when you compare it against its most obvious comparison point, Octopath Traveler, another HD2D Squeenix JRPG for Switch with eight protagonists.  For my money, the older game comes out on top.

You could argue that's because of what they were trying to do.  Octopath was purposefully harkening back to an older era of JRPG, while Live A Live, which existed within that era, was trying to surpass it.  Surpass it it did: the game's full of invention and interesting mechanics, from eschewing standard battle templates and instead using a grid-based positioning system, to eight completely different adventures.  You can go from a semi-traditional JRPG to a stealth mission to what feels like acting out an anime to a flipping horror game.  No wonder it inspired games like Undertale.  What's more, it solves Octopath's mistakes years before the later game made them: the characters come together properly at the end, and there are no random battles or tedious dungeons!

...at least until the eighth story.  And the ninth.  Sadly Live A Live becomes much more traditional at the end, and is a worse game for it, every bit as tedious as the worst parts of its newer competitor.  Together with the fact that the obvious choice for the first story (Prehistory) is the worst of the first seven by a longshot, combining tedious mechanics and no dialogue with some pixellated horniness that hasn't aged well at all, and Live A Live is at its weakest precisely when it should be strongest.  

The worst part of the game, though, is I reckon purely down to its age: I played through the entire thing with a guide and some help from Andy and Mas, and if I hadn't then as a completionist I'd have had a terrible time.  There are plenty of hidden and obscure mechanics that suit the replayers or those happy to keep multiple save slots and repeat stretches, and I don't have time for that.  Like I say, that's a product of its time, and if you're viewing Live A Live as a history piece it won't bother you.  In a modern game, this deserves calling out.

And I do think Live A Live stands up as a modern game, just about.  Its poor bookending couldn't erase the feeling of wanting to find out what weird things it would throw at me next, weird things it usually managed to stick the landing on too.  It looks beautiful and sounds nice as well, with the voice acting being pretty good (genuine Chinese VA for the China chapter, it looks like!) and the boss theme an all-timer.  It may only be one for JRPG purists at full price, but those JRPG purists will find some good things in there.

6/10 (above average/sale buy)

I thought the eighth story was the best of them all. The rest sounds about right, what ending/s did you get?

I did that and the other way

La5t Game You Fini5hed And Your Thought5 - Page 18 OIP

After just over 35hrs, I finished The DioField Chronicle a real time strategy RPG on Switch where it runs fine but is quite a bit of pop-in and load times are long. I really enjoyed it up to a point, it just seemed to go on for ages like XC3 I've just past 70hrs because of the DLC, XC3 doesn't feel that long where this does.

The story focuses mostly on DioField which is fine but when a lot of talk about the other two nations, maybe they could have been woven in a bit more, though we're set up for a sequel.

TDC is very much a one for fans games, as some good ideas here just not totally executed.

At the start of my week off last week, I replayed Bayonetta 2.
It actually holds up much better than I remembered. I still think it has a few too many chapters which are just a boss, and it lacks a bit of challenge and subsequently charm which the first had, so I would say it is still second best.

But it's bloody good. Visually it still looks great; much crisper and brighter than the first game. Because I played it very shortly after the first but the difficulty is tailored for starting from scratch, I was hitting lots of Platinums and having very stylish fights, which felt great.

The new kid Loki is a little annoying in a way Cereza never was, and the wild time-travel nonsense of the plot doesn't work as well as the simple amnesia deal of the first, but it does mean we get to fight heaven and hell this time, which was fun.

One small change I dislike is with the button-bashing quicktime events. The timing to get a perfect score has been made much easier, but the fun of the old one was that based on what move the demon was starting to do, you could often figure out what to press before the on-screen prompt. Madam Butterfly is winding up a punch? I'll start hammering the punch button. In Bayonetta 2, I can get a max bonus even if I don't press anything until the prompt comes up, which removes a little engagement from what is, essentially, a cutscene.

Overall, not quite as good as 1, but not much of a step down, which makes it easier to be excited for 3.

Yeah, Bayonetta 2 is one I've been meaning to get around to for bloody ages. I think I'll give it a bash in December as I remember hearing it's a bit of a Christmassy game.

That's what I did back on Wii U - it worked out nicely because I played one as soon as they released and the other at Christmas.
The Christmas stuff basically just bookends it though, you aren't fighting Reindeer and teaming up with Elves throughout or anything.

La5t Game You Fini5hed And Your Thought5 - Page 18 2x1_ns10

For years I've dreamt of a new entry in to this series so have been pumped to play it ever since it was announced a few months back. For the uninitiated it's a point and click adventure game in its truest sense where you'll use items and conversational trees to move through the story.

It won't revolutionise gaming but it does a damm fine job of making it more accessible to a wider audience, controls aside which are as good as they can be for a point and click on consoles,  so still not too much of a problem, it also offers a very helpful hint system that you can use as much or little as you want. I didn't use it much but at times when I felt totally lost it was very helpful with hints that range from vague to pretty much telling you so you can easily carry on with the story.

Which is where the game is most important, as a fan of the series I can happily say I loved every minute of it,  those who are jumping in for the first time however can still enjoy it I think. There's definitely a fair few moments where they reference previous games but they do a good job of explaining and filling you in, especially with the scrapbook that documents all the key points from the past. Moving away from the series history though its witty and charming in its own right, the script will raise a few smiles without ever being too in your face and I found the music, voice acting and art style to be lovely in equal measure.

Well worth the wait for me personally and anyone who has a passing interest should definitely give it a chance.

10/10 if you're a fan of the series
8/10 if you've never played before

I will play Monkey Island at some point as now will being added to Game Pass, yay more things that I won't actually get to.

Something I did get to though
La5t Game You Fini5hed And Your Thought5 - Page 18 Bayonetta-3-how-to-farm-lotus-seeds-fast

Not quite as good as Bayo 2 in my opinion, still takes a gold medal on my recent Platinum ranking list alongside the first game, this absolute banger. The only real issue I've got with it is the Switch itself lets it down a bit with the FPS and resolution part from that, quality game which I enjoyed the multiverse stuff seeing the other Bayonettas etc fun times.

We all know Mas won't make any decision we think is sensible about the order to play things.

I'm really keen to play Monkey Island, but I haven't yet played 2 and 3 and feel I should play 2 and 3 first. I'm playing them in co-op with The Lady though, who just wants to relax and watch Korean dramas about sexual assault rather than tax her brain with looking at a guide for MI2 in the evenings. I'm probably more on the 8/10 end of the spectrum now though.

I'm probably in the minority that'll rate it that high but it sounds like you'll enjoy it, it's definitely a lot more logical with the solutions than 2 as well so probably wouldn't need a guide all that much.

This weekend I finished off a playthorugh of Super Mario Odyssey.

What a game! Expect a video very soon. Of course it remains a 10/10, and even on my main file there is still more exploring and collectiong to be done. I don't think it tops my Mario list because, quite frankly, it was too easy and rarely required actual skillful platforming.

I also saw credits on Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak.

I've been taking my time with this, essentially playing it at the pace necessary for Monster Mash, making full armour sets of new monsters, but not otherwise binging it. Its a cool slice of monhan, it had some cracking new and returning creatures, and I'm happy with it overall. Did a feel a little slight? Maybe, but I think the podcast mindset stops me seeing subspecies as full new monsters, which isn't quite fair.

I've enjoyed Rise, and while Sunbreak's gothic schtick didn't do it for me as much as the Japanese theme of the main game, it was very cool. I'm ready for a more pared-back, difficult Monster Hunter next, though who knows what Capcom are actually cooking up.

Now playing: Bayonetta 3 (and also still poking away at Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories even though it feels like eating my vegetables before enjoying the meaty KHII).

Do you mean for the total number of monsters? If so it's probably a combo of what you said along with how they sort of hold monsters back to fill out their title updates.

Probably fair, although most of that difficulty is locked into the bits at the end that you may not have got to - as is the usual for Mario games these days I guess. While I understand why Nintendo's opted for that approach, I'd love a Mario with a decent difficulty curve in the main game. I still think Odyssey is the best Mario, natch; but it's flawed.

I've got to those bits before, and I agree, but yeah on this playthrough I didn't see the platforming I desire.

The exploratory nature of the game of course contributes to that; to collect enough moons to finish the story, it's entirely possible to skip all the ones that require completing difficult platforming. This is why, much as I love the 64>Sunshine>Odyssey mold of game, I find myself having more fun in Galaxy, which is a little more directed towards good stuff. And much as I love them, I'd agree with your next point which is that 3D Land and World (and in my opinion, Galaxy 2) go too far in that direction.

I think Odyssey tops my list now, nostalgia aside - I love me a treasure hunt.

Speaking of which
THE STANLEY PARABLE ULTRA DELUXE
Basically if you have or haven't played the original, this is great. It's on the nose, and it knows. 10/10/10/10

EDIT TO TRY A BIT HARDER: Actually I kept that brief because I never want to spoil anything, but if you like fun and think you know what a videogame is, you'll like this. Sometimes the narrator goes on a little bit too long, but there's usually a "...hah!" bit afterwards.

It's "literally" inspirational

Tee hee. I probably wouldn't have made that point on this occasion, but yes. Part of the reason why I prefer Galaxy 2 actually is that I felt the Green Stars brought a little of that exploration back, as opposed to SMG1 which had maybe a handful of examples of going off-piste for multiple possibilities. (Like Buoy Base. Love Buoy Base.)

I will say that I can't imagine playing any 3D Mario just to finish the story. It's one of the few series I'll still go collectathon for - otherwise I agree, you're stuck with simple linear paths from Broodal to Broodal with the odd utterly trivial Moon along the way. But you can't play it like that! I'll go one step further, and say that playing Odyssey only to finish the story is like playing BotW only to get the Divine Beasts and Ganon. Not quite the same scale, granted, but the same degree of sidelining what the game does best.

I try not to these days. There are several games where trying to 100% them has ruined my enjoyment of them, which is a big reason why I look on achievement systems with scepticism. Of course Mario Odyssey definitely wasn't one of those, almost 100%ing that only ever brought me joy (and then I decided not to do the final challenge because of precisely that reason).

Just finished one of this year's big Switch console exclusive

La5t Game You Fini5hed And Your Thought5 - Page 18 Th?id=OIF

ALttL reminds me of Apple Arcade game Assemble with Care and recent indie hit Unpacking, just nowhere near as good as those. Where in Unpacking, a story was still told through the gameplay of arranging items, by what items you had and the surrounding environment changing from kids bedroom to final house with everything in-between along with the character finding herself.

Whilst ALttL does have a similar sort of relaxing puzzle game vibes which you can even get hints or pass the puzzle if you wish to go at your own pace, there's no real point. Sure the cat being a nuisance is funny and is a bit of a cutscene where Rookie knocks over a vase which you then put back together is the puzzles I'd liked in the game, compared to one where it gives me some leafs what am I doing with them?

The controls are a bit iffy as well in both modes, touch I feel does work better but found it a tad unresponsive. Still, I think I paid about £3 for it after using a bunch of Gold Coins, and it was a good palate cleanser to play after the next game I'll talk about, and before I continue on with God of War Ragnarök.

I also finished this other Switch game

I finished up the post game story last night and got say been a lot of fun playing, going around on Miraidon throwing out my Pokémon with the Let's Go mode to battle anything in sight on my way to any of three story locations at the time on the map.

Will pop my head back into the Pokémon S&V thread to talk more on it, yet as of now It's stuck into my Top 10 of the year and is going on my Switch 30 list as well.

I've realised I've not actually posted any of my finished games in this thread since I did that big Kingdom Hearts roundup like half a year ago, so I suppose it's time for another big old roundup. You're getting a couple of sentences and a score, that's your lot.
