    That oxygen mechanic was a real pain, and the writing was subpar compared to 2. The playable character designs were fantastic though I thought.

    Just finished Hellblade on PS4, what a game! You can feel the love put into it, absolutely stunning, made locally too! (Cambridge) Had a few faults but I was just swept along, great acting, very emotional story and looks gorgeous. Loved the subject (mental illness) was very brave of Team Ninja, and they pulled it off brilliantly.
    This is a typical example of why I still love games 9/10 turnips!

    Another vote for Oxenfree being hoop. Glad it wasn’t just me.

    From a game mechanics point of view, it’s pretty superficial. But the story and acting are excellent. Looking forward to the sequel.

    I don't even want to think of how Team Ninja would tackle the subject of mental illness.

    Using the past evidence, I'd think Team Ninja would very carefully and thoughtfully address mental health issues with "large bouncing virtual breasts".

    Tests have shown that the comforting bounce of a pair of big boobs will calm approximately 50% of the world’s population and will allow them to forget their problems.

    Maybe even disintegrate corona virus on sight of bouncing mammaries. Perhaps pharmacists will start selling “motor boating”

    "Yes, everyone here at Koei Tecmo takes the issue of mental illnesses very seriously. That's why we decided it would be best approached... as a metaphor. Now, imagine that this big boobed woman is yourself, and these thousands of easily dispatched enemy soldiers represent your mental illness"

    Yeah it's little more than a walking simulator narrated by Eamon Holmes.
    I'd rather it had of been. The exploration and story were good, the fighting was awful - or at least I never managed to click with it.

    I loved it

    Only tiny issue was during the final boss I’d fallen into such an established rhythm that I was actually coping quite well with the waves of monsters that are supposed to overwhelm you and looked online to find a way out of the loop. That slightly knocked the immersion for me but everything else was spot on.

    Darksiders Genesis

    A fun hack and slash with some gunplay. The story tells the story before the previous games and it's a lot better than the third game. War and Strife compliment each other well and it doesn't take itself too seriously and progresses nicely.

    There are a few issues, the fixed camera makes the platformy bits a pain sometimes and the map is useless. There's a lot of bosses, but for the most part they're not too bad to fight.

    7/10

    Life is Strange 2

    I enjoyed the 1st life is strange but for me this was much better. I enjoyed the narrative more and the production values are much better than the 1st. This one also felt much more raw and real to me.

    I finished it on Monday and it left me in a bit of an emotional state for 3 days straight afterwards and couldnt stop thinking about it. I'm an 39 year old man for god sake.

    9/10

    ps. The Telltale games just dont come anywhere close to this.

    Loved replaying them - I even enjoyed Infinite more than than the first time I played it.

    @TechnoHippy
    Great games, I enjoyed Infinite and the dlc, the end of the main game can do one though.

    Bioshock is awesome. Felt ahead of its time back when it launched and has aged really well. It helps that Rapture is a great world to be stuck in and that twist late on is pretty cool. Not played it myself for quite a while. Might revisit it.

    Doom Eternal (PC): 9/10

    It's awesome. It has a few problems which are too large to ignore, but it's still awesome.

    Movement and gunplay are as good as anything I've ever seen in an fps. Combat has a visceral flow that makes it insanely satisfying. The selection of weapons is great and it's so nice to break free of the usual depressing 2-gun limits. The various combat systems that seem a bit fragmented early on all come together beautifully in the later stages. It's a technical powerhouse, with insane image quality and framerate. The level design is superb. Enemy and environment variety is great. The story/lore seems stupid at first, but ends up surprisingly not-bad.

    But also some flaws.

    The early sections drag a bit, when you don't have the weapons and abilities that really make the game shine. The Marauder enemy feels like it wandered in from a different game - it's not bad as such, but it doesn't fit the rhythm of Doom's combat. The last mission goes on a bit too long and has a few too many huge waves of enemes. The HDR is beautiful but buggy.

    Overall, it's an incredible game, but its flaws are just about enough to hold it back from the absolute top tier. Spent 18 hours with it on Hurt Me Plenty difficulty and will definitely be replaying at some point.

    Oooooooh I forgot I had these. I might have to download tomorrow when I get home. Hmmm bioshock or infinite. I need something to get me off my unhealthy addiction to hunt showdown.

    That is no question, bioshock everytime.

    Infinite was ok, bioshock was amazing. That first bit, the plane crash, lighthouse & bathysphere run alone...
