I guess it's not odd but just seen you post about BotW and the last bit about that being in the world etc is how I would describe DS and the BotW similarities Kojima talked about but this time with a purpose.

I'm going to pick up Death Standing at some point. I'm not sure when though and a large part of that is wanting it to be cheaper so I can tap out if I'm not into it without feeling like I've wasted money. Slow starts aren't always a bad thing, but I'm worried that this'll be a bit tortuous.

Last game you DIDN'T finish and your thoughts - Page 20 Header

Bombercrew is less a slow starter, more a stubbornly slow march. Each mission simply takes far too long. Significant downtime whilst you're in the air combined with a gameplay loop that necessitates lots of missions just isn't a good recipe.

I like crew management games, with FTL being one of my top indie games, and enjoy the mental dexterity required to do really well in those games (or at least an ability to hit that pause button). Bombercrew, though, is just too cumbersome. Thematically, having stodgy controls fits the WWII period, but after a while you'll grow tired of wrestling the camera in order to pick out way points/enemy bombers. Every crew member has a valuable specialisation, and you'll sometimes need to swap crew members around in order to heal them. But timing all of the special abilities they have is a chore because without pausing, zooming out and wiggling the camera around, you don't really have a good sense of where the enemy is. Combine this with an already glacial mission tempo and if you're anything like me you'll simply resolve to using abilities, such as the gunners aim focus, whenever it feels right. I know I'm doing things wrong, I want the game to be something that it's not. But if I really wanted a slower paced tense tatical game, I'd be looking at something like Battle Star Galactica.

This isn't a bad game. I enjoyed customising my team, plane, putting a giant picture of my Switch profile picture on the wings and watching my team gel; not bad for the price of a meal deal. But this isn't something I'll think about coming back to.

Feel like you've saved me some money there, was very on the fence with Bomber Crew, doesn't sound like it's what I was expecting it to be though.

The similarities are precisely why I was interesting in Death Stranding but when it came to it the world wasn't as interesting and traversing it wasn't much fun either, I think the climbing in BotW shouldn't be underestimated as to how much more enjoyable it made it.

Weirdly the more I'm talking about it now though the more I wanna give it another try... Might be one for later when I've got nothing else to play.

I would say exactly the same but the other way around.

Sounds like your programming is re-arranged - which leads me to

BABA IS YOU

I've shelved it. The ideally is bloody bloody bloody bloody bloody bloody bloody brilliant - being able to change the rules of the puzzle as well as the elements themselves.

But. I don't think I'm the stupidest person in the world (and I'm about to write in the Last Game You Finished topic about another smart-arse puzzle game, and felt like a genius) but it just gets too difficult too quickly. Unlike The Witness, it doesn't give you a lot of guidance as to what you are and aren't allowed to do, and so you get stuck behind some hidden piece of logic. I stopped playing regularly because I was resorting to hints for every level.

It's still good though, and it's nice to not play a game where the whole premise is "go to that bit of the map, kill a man, pick up things, go back again" - but I'm just feeling like I'm wasting my time now. Eh?

Aw. Aww! I can relate, mind. The puzzles are so rewarding to solve, but that relies in the time spent thinking/resolution trade-off being right. As the game goes on that trade-off skews.

Must try The Witness. Must must must.

Is it another Balla Failed to Finish Double Bill?  If it wasn't, would I have asked such a leading question?

DRAGON QUEST XI [insert daft subtitles here]:
 

BASTION:
 

Nothing too offensive there, I don't think.  Anyway, must press on with the three other JRPGs I have on the go.

I finished Dragon Quest XI and Bastion, and, yeah, you aren't missing much. I've also completed those other three JRPGs you're saying you'll play - they're not up to much either. Destruction Derby 2 though, that's a quality game, you should go complete that 👌

Agree on not actually liking the Bastion narrator. Well, I did, for about 10 minutes. The novelty wore off quick

Last game you DIDN'T finish and your thoughts - Page 20 H2x1_NSwitchDS_MonkeyBarrels_image1600w

Quite pissed off not to finish MONKEY BARRELS on Switch, as it's an enjoyable game with lots to like. It's a twin-stick shooter from the makers of Kirby's Epic Yarn and Yoshi's Crafted World, with loads of inventive weapons, a catchy soundtrack and a distinctive art style (think what the best-looking GBA game might look like...this is that). It's addictive too - I've put more time into it than a lot of my Switch games. What's stopped me from finishing it is the difficulty: it's surprisingly difficult, and it's not afraid to boot you very, very hard in the bollocks. It's reached a point where I can't win. I came very close to finishing it too, just two levels away. But, I just can't beat this boss I'm stuck on. I'm giving up after about thirty tries. 

Despite all it's qualities though, I'm not sure how much I'd recommend it. If this was on Wii U, it would be an insta-buy. But, on Switch, there's honestly about a hundred games I'd suggest you download instead. Hmm.

That's the game that looks suspiciously like a reskinned Splatoon project

I might have kept on with it regardless, but the game's big selling point was the narrator talking about everything you did.  He got right on my nerves.  He made me feel pressured to move faster so that he didn't talk about 'kid' lazing about; and he had some 'helpful' comments upon my deaths.  He turned it from a slightly above experience into a bang-or-slightly-below average experience, and in doing so killed the game for me.

Oh wow, I can't say that I felt like that at all! I thought the little comments about "lazing about" were brilliantly charming and because there was no real consequence to triggering those lines from the narrator, I can't say I felt "pressured to move faster" in the least. Still, I will say that Bastion was far weaker than Transistor in my eyes which I adored, whereas Bastion lived on its music, story, narration and overall atmosphere as opposed to the gameplay. Transistor had all of the aforementioned features locked down and was still dead fun to play to boot.

RE: Dragon Quest - Aye, that's a series that is unashamedly old fashioned in its battling. Say what you will about some of the later Final Fantasy games, but at least they changed the formula up in a big way.

Don't think DQ will change be that better or worse depending on your view

On Xbox, you often have quests which give reward points which can then be turned into credit for instance. Recently they had a quest to play Sea of Thieves along with play a Game Pass game, unlock an achievement in a Game Pass game and so on.

That I thought why not give SoT another go from when I played in the BETA and when it had no content compared to now with story quests & the like, as it must be doing something right to have had 10m+ players and one of the games always in the monthly most-played chart.

I want to like SoT as it seems like it might be cool but when I was paired up with three others, no one seemed to be doing what we should be. Now you might be going Mas but I want to have fun and sure, just after 30mins only so much you can do with the other players seem to aimlessly not doing a lot.

I then tried to play by myself in a small ship, just seems like a lot to do by yourself on sailing round. I feel that there is a good game here, just I think you need mates even though people have said it's a great community.

Just mine on Xbox, had the first impressions of the beta and no content to begin with for them to go back. Hopefully, Everwild which is using the same engine can learn from the mistakes of SoT.

An unsurprising victim to human nature, that.

I've been doing bits and pieces within the Stadia Community mainly for Stadia Source which I guess is like the Nintendo Life of Stadia web pages. Well Kine was reviewed by one of the team who gave it 10/10, it's the game that made us change review scores from numbers and introduced a little mascot

Last game you DIDN'T finish and your thoughts - Page 20 Woohoo

Anyway, due to this glowing review when Kine went on sale, I decided to buy Kine and it's not very good maybe a 6/10 at best if giving scores.

Why I've not finished and I'm near the end is because of the huge difficulty spike, which other reviews do mention when having a quick look. The last few puzzles, just make me want to pull my hair out.
