    Fucking superb. If you like great stories which keep you guessing non stop, this is one for you. It is very, very long though so need to be committed (first game I have completed in over a month!)

    Now back to CTR and Trails of Cold Steel II!

    14. Halo Wars (PC) (10/7/19) (7.5/10)
    15. Metro Exodus (PC) (20/7/19) (8.5/10)

    Fibished PC version of Metro Exodus with the good ending (played blind but checked which afeer completion). Played this on Game Pass (but will double dip if it ever reaches GOG). Very pretty and atmospheric (using RTX and Ultra settings with everything on max and the crappy AI setting turned off). Played with Russian voices as seemed only way to do this. It had a few bugs, some particular to the Windows Store version but it ran fine overall (most common bug being not quitting properly). Story was okay but the range of environments and the cast made up for it. Gameplay ws generally decent with a nice choice of weapons and play styles but the autosave could throw a few spanners in the works (one particular scene in a base I wanted no casualties inautosved after I accidentally alerted the base leading to charging around like a mad man against armed enemies trying to incapacitate them at point blank range). I am interested in the DLC but will wait for a (hopeful) GOG release for that.

    Also almost finished Judgement, all side stories done, just got to see if I can kill Amon or whether I will just finish it (I decided as that is the last quest in every RGG game and spinoff that it isn't a spoiler). Fire Emblem comes at the end of the week but more likely to polish off Echoes first...

    16. Judgement (PS4) (25/7/19) (9/10)

    Finished Judgement after a bit over 60 hours with 47% trophies and all friend quests and side cases (bar the Amon one as this game's one was a pain in the backside and I wanted to get it finished). Didn't do all of the drone races either.

    Game was nice noir crime drama set in the Yakuza universe. Nice to play with a whole new cast in the famiar Kamurocho setting. Graphics are improving in each Dragon Engine game and the atmosphere worked. Acting was good and I enjoyed both the serious main story and the sillier side cases. A few new arcade games and mini games added too. If you like Yakuza you should like this.

    Still way behind game schedule. Need to finish off Gears of War Ultimate (had server issues for last few days). Also play Steins;Gate Linear Bounded Phenogram spinoff. Not ure what next big console game will be, perhaps Fire Emblem or maybe Zanki Zero...

    @Rogueywon I still haven't started X nor finished V but I had thought of getting this and the demo seemed decent enough. Not so good then? Choosing a format slowed me down as Switch one is pricy but had thought about PS4 for 30 quid on sale... Previous games I played on Vita.

    @One_Vurfed_Gwrx It's not as good as either V or X.

    V has the advantage of a great narrative core. It has Space Battleship Yamato 2199 at its heart, which is a top-tier space opera. It blends its other shows into that well - the detours through the worlds of Mightgaine, Cross Ange and Gundam Unicorn are all well handled. Then when, in the late game, it jumps you over to the Greater Magellan Cloud and right back onto the Yamato plot, it is a bit of a "fuck yeah" moment.

    X isn't quite so strong in narrative terms - Mashin Hero Wataru was a poor choice for the "main" series. But it has more of a sense of humour than V and its skewed alternate take on several shows, particularly Cross Ange, is fun. It also has by far the best mission design of the PS4 games. It mixes up objectives nicely, with simple "kill everything" missions replaced with more complex scenarios, including defensive missions. If you're afteer "Fire Emblem with Mecha", then SRWX is it.

    T is much poorer. Its selection of franchises is awful. It's mostly 70s, 80s and 90s shows, many of which (Gunbuster excepted) weren't worth watching at the time. Expelled from Paradise is the only 10s franchise, with Cowboy Bebop and Gun X Sword left to bat on their own for the 00s. This is absolutely infuriating given the other options - Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans and Macross Delta would both have been obvious candidates for inclusion. The story meanders around a bit without going anywhere and a lot of the more interesting shows get no more than 1 or 2 early missions then get forgotten (Cowboy Bebop and Expelled from Paradise in particular). Mission design is just "spam shitloads of weak enemies". Notable that in V and X, I only had a couple of characters over level 65 by the end of the first playthrough. In T, I had one over 90 and a good number over 85, because it throws so many trash mobs at you.

    Yeah, I really liked the Yamato stuff in V. Regarding your suggestions for T I hear Macross is trapped in licensing hell (and renewed with same licensor). Iron Blooded Orphans (the only Gundam show I have watched actually) is listed for the next Gundam G Generation though (Genesis is another on my backlog of robot start rpgs...)

    @One_Vurfed_Gwrx Macross's licensing hell should only matter for the West (and these games aren't "legally" released in the West). Macross Frontier has featured in the DS games before.

    I didn't even like Macross Delta much... but it would have mixed things up a bit better than the cheesy 70s and 80s blur that forms most of the roster for T.

    I think Macross is all licensing outside of Japan so even covers the other Asian regions. So even worse than the usual mess.

    And back on topic started Observer as it seemed the right time with it being one of the later Rutger Hauer titles. Seems interesting so far and shouldn't be too long.

    Both of these I only really played because of game pass and I really enjoyed both. Free DLC for the Messenger too so I'm gonna jump on that before moving onto whatever's next.

    #26 Return of the Obra Dinn 10/10
    This might be one of the most compelling mystery games I have ever played. Lucas Pope seems to be an endless font of talent, I can't believe he one-manned two of my favourite games. If anyone even suspects this might be up their street I would recommend it wholeheartedly.

    #29 29/07 Doom 2016 - Xbox One

    I'm looking forward to Doom Eternal and been caught up in some of the hype. I played through on Hurt Me Plenty, got most of the unlockables/collectables in one run without revisiting any levels. I'd previously done similar on the PC at launch and got 100% completion at same difficulty on PS4 some time ago. I wanted to play it again so picked the X1 version as it was on Game Pass and I might as well bump my gamerscore up in the process.

    I'm also currently struggling to complete the relic and crystal challenges on Crash Team Racing, I've done all of the regular adventure races and CTR challenges. I plan to do the unlocked cups but not sure I can be arsed with buggering about to get the other stuff, life's too short and I have loads of other stuff so that may be added to the list of "done" games soon.

    Unfortunately seems to focus on more of the frustrating sort of gameplay like the latter part of the main game, and has an underwhelming final boss.

    I've done as much as I'm willing to do, I don't have the patience for the relic and crystal challenges, I just don't enjoy them enough to warrant the repeated arsing about. I could probably get the relics done if I gave it a serious effort but each time I find I'm thinking I could be playing something else and making progress/enjoying myself. I might have the odd go here and there in the future but can't be arsed at present.

    I enjoyed the regular adventure mode and playing private online races with my girlfriend. I love the environments and track designs, also some of the unlockable characters are pretty cool. I tried it in ranked online and it was horrible, people only want to vote for the higher tier, more complex tracks which invariably saw me finishing in the last three each time, coupled with getting unavoidable weapon spam on me and it can full on fuck off, it's just not fun. I'd rather hit my own nads with a mallet than play another online game with randoms.

    Brilliant game and fitting conclusion to the trilogy. Almost a perfect game, but for a couple of areas that outstayed their welcome and map design/confusion.


    Onward and upward, playing Days Gone and still (still, although not for over a month) playing Recore via Gamepass.

    Finished off the second DLC pack for EDF 4.1 co-op with my son (Ranger and Wing Diver) on normal. Last mission was fairly challenging even on normal too. We will likely go back to 4.1 AND DLC at some point but that is it for the challenge. We are also playing through 5 but not finished that yet. Also making progress on Observer.

    18. Observer (PS4) (11/8/19) (8/10)

    Finished off Observer, an interesting cyberpunk adventure set in a Polish dystopia tower block. It isn't the prettiest Unreal engine game you have seen but looks nice enough. Voice acting is pretty good with Rutger Hauer being the standout (and his recent death pre-empting into finally playing this). Story is small scale but enjoyable enough. Gameplay is a mix of walking sim and adventure with puzzles and investigating crime scenes in the gameplay. Combat free too. Has a range of optional side quests to do too of which I missed a few according to the trophy list (36% done IIRC). Also a bunch of optional collectable which I didn't complete any set of. Not the longest game and has a couple of endings (did both). Overall enjoyed it.

    Not sure what I am going to play next, Town of Light is a possibility... Still way behind schedule for 52 games completion...

    Another Game Pass game before my subscription ends today (I wanted to play Unavowed but it refused to load so have up and will buy on GOG some time). GoWU is fairly clunky and dated due to its age with sticky controls, samey levels and some annoying bosses but I enjoyed it for what it was. Will have to play through 2 and 3 on 360 some time. Was interesting to play through this after 4 too. Not sure what game to play next.

    Excellent game and world. Highlight being the story. The one negative is the game length. It is too long by over 10 hours. Not that it particularly drags but the final act does have some extended setups which seem to be there to pad out the game, totally not needed.
    Even with that I loved my time with it.

    Just checked back over previous years:
    2015 = 29
    2016 = 28
    2017 =19
    2018 =14

    2019 =14

    So I'm being more choosy or playing less!
