That was certainly a Scullion review.

I'm certainly up for another go at crap game, even if it's as simple as one of ya picking something from my backlog or know I can play as it's on Game Pass.

I am, tentatively, going to cover Nippon Marathon in this thread at a later date. That's not to diminish the value of Mas' gift, as it did have a 'so bad it's good' feel to it; but I feel I could do some entertaining slagging off of the game so long as it doesn't offend the giver.

I'm fine with it as you're still using, the other game I was looking at was Our World has Ended for you.

This is me just reading this now, two months after you'd posted it. I'm all ears, but batter away with any ideas you've got  Thumbs Up!

I always thought Nippon Marathon looked all right! Never heard of masofdas's game though. I'm looking through my Switch games, and I only own one that I think is genuinely crap (Mecho Tales). I've got Garfield Kart on 3DS though!!

It's pretty simple:
  • Use Meta/Opencritic to find eShop games that have < 40%;
  • Check which of those games have a price of under a tenner;
  • Everyone who wants to play is given a game to buy and review.

It'll cost a bit more, of course, but it's less than the GNSS budget and hopefully not too much for a bit of fun.  I guess I'd suggest waiting for (a) a sale and/or (b) for the hectic Switch autumn's aftermath to die down.  Open to other suggestions, natch.

For now, though, let's do this.  Thank you for letting me do this, Mas: I remain delighted by the very 'me' present, and will be playing up the slagging off for comic effect. Smile

See your rules go out the window for me as I played likes of Where the Bees Make Honey in 2019 on purpose.

That sounds a lot worse than I was expecting it too, no wonder it was available on the cheap.

Would be totally up for that idea although I'm willing to bet I too will play games like that on purpose, I mean I've put a whole tonne of hours in to Ark over the last few years.

He is by far the worst bit. Like I said, I'm talking the crapness up a bit for comic effect, but... yep, hard to recommend. Laughing

Oh boy! I always hoped I'd "missed something" and it wouldn't be as try-hard-y as all that! Well, thanks for the warning Balla!

There must be a simulator game for everything now on Steam, surely?

Castle brought back a lot of NGamer memories with this piece. He even referenced Kittsy in the comments!

Cheers for linking that, it's not a review I'd have clicked on otherwise. What did Matthew Castle do after NOM? Was he not a writer for an XBox One magazine?

He was the editor at OXM for a while, yeah, then he went online at maybe Rock Paper Shotgun or Yogscast or something like that? He just recently lost that gig so I guess he's freelance just now?

Agreed, that's a top line. I quite enjoyed Scullion's review of FIFA 21 Legacy Edition too, although there's a hint more of proper anger to that one.

Yeah, that review didn't have that NGamer kicking that I enjoyed reading, but it was definitely necessary to write and warn people about the laziness of the game they put out. The stuff about delisting the old versions... oh dear.

Not to bat for EA, they deserve a bollocking, but there could be licensing reasons for their older games disappearing. I know that football manager games are only available digitally for at most the current and previous season.
That said, anti consumerism is EA's calling card so it wouldn't come as a surprise if this was their choice!

As for the review, I'm surprised he put so much effort into it. Certainly more than ea have!

Do you still do anything like this on a regular basis? Was thinking it might be fun/interesting/painful to do something like this with the discounted 8p games on the Switch eShop.
