  1. The Best Gaming Music Ever.

    30 hours into CrossCode and I've just heard this gem of a tune: Gives some Golden Sun vibes among other games.

    It got overshadowed by the Nintendo Direct, the State of Play and the Tokyo Game Show all happening around the same time, so I'm just going to leave this here, Freedom Planet 2 recently came out on Steam. Of interest to @Jonnas but also to anyone who like Sonic games because this game has been getting glowing user reviews from those who've played it. https://store.steampowered.com/app/595500/Freedom_Planet_2/ There's currently a 10% discount on Steam. It isn't coming to Switch until next year though, or any other console for that matter. The game has been in development for 7 years. The guy who made Sonic Mania, Christian Whitehead, designed the engine behind this game and its probably the closest you're ever going to get to a Sonic Mania 2, even moreso than Origins. Its about more than twice the size of its predecessor with even going fast through it setting you back 9 hours or so.
  3. Your Gaming Diary 2022

    It's been a while since my last update here hasn't it? Well I've played a multitude of games. I've finished Celeste and its instantly moved into my top 5 Indie Games I've played. Felt the second half in particular was especially strong. With that done, I moved onto another indie game immediately... and pretty much loved the soundtrack from there. I started with CrossCode, which is a top down Zelda styled action RPG set in an MMo. I understand this is a hard sell to people, but you really shouldn't overlook this game. I started it because of it being listed as one of those underrated gems and after starting it I can immediately see why. This game feels great to play even if I'm absolutely awful at the combat and the fact that its set in an MMO means it is constantly poking fun at the genre with its dialogue, which is very well written, even for a silent protagonist with a canonical reason as to why she's silent. But yeah, this game's awesome so far, even if I think the story is dragging its feet a bit with the whole "game within a game" thing. The writing is pretty solid overall though and it really feels like the 2D Zelda game I haven't played in ages. I've just wrapped up the bunny chase in Autumn's Fall and about to start my first Raid in the game. A concept I will be completely lost on having no actually played any real MMO RPGs, only single player MMO styled ones like FFXII and Xenoblade. Speaking of Xenoblade, my playthrough of CrossCode was sharp interrupted by the release of Xenoblade Chronicles 3. I intended to juggle both of them but in the end Xenoblade 3 was so good I decided to focus on it. I won't post too much spoilerly stuff and will stick to story tweets, but here goes: Which itself is a misspelling of "Territorial Rotbart! https://twitter.com/GenericAperson/status/1556992194036150273?s=20&t=mo-tfptTxS98L_67gZnVCQ I did think Elden Ring was going to be my Game of the Year this year but Xenoblade 3 comes in and says "hold on a moment" and I think Xenoblade 3 might be my game of the year now. This game was so good, the story was great, the world map was so expansive, far beyond what you're required to do and the soundtrack was amazing as always. Somehow this game kept getting better when I thought it was already really good, which is the sign of a classic. It really gave me those classic RPG vibes, this is the best Xenoblade game since the original easily. Is it better than Xenoblade 1? I still don't know yet. I did have an issue with how Elden Ring fell away in its latter stages and while Xenoblade 3 does that a bit too its not anywhere near the same extent, so Xenoblade 3 is my Game of the Year. BUT WAIT! That's not all I played this past two months. A couple of free to play games I decided to download for different reasons. The first was Multiversus. Having played a fair bit of Rivals of Aether I've really gotten more into the platform fighter genre and since I have a friend who might be interested in something like this I decided to also pick it up. The other free game may surprise you considering I criticised this game last year but... wanting a more up to date football game but not wanting to fork out for one I downloaded eFootball.after its 2023 update. After one year of patches surely the problems must have been fixed right? One thing I will say is that its definintely playable now and the players don't look like complete trash. But there are issues Edit mode is apparently coming soon but to mobile first... OK. So, still not amazing and some basic features are rather lacking from this game but maybe eventually this game will do a No Man's Sky and be good. A couple of other games left, Rivals of Aether, obviously where work on Yooka and Laylee is really coming along, I'm redoing the character and am about 80% of the character is done, still at least 1-3 months away from finishing. The other is Soulcalibur VI where I have finally filled all 100 custom character slots. Given the amount of Indie games I've been into lately all my slots were filled with indie game characters:
  4. The Best Gaming Music Ever.

    So much good music in Xenoblade 3, its hard to really highlight it all, if I had to go with one... I couldn't. But I will at least post this here That piano swell is amazing. I've also progressed more in CrossCode and this game's soundtrack continues to deliver.
  5. There are quite a few games which I've put down only to return to later. I think my most notable example was Spider-Man 2 on Gamecube where I got up to Chapter 14 only to be stuck on the Warehouse fight for ages. I started the game back in 2004, it was in 2018 however when I finally beat the game. Actually, 2018 and 2020 were main "clear the backlog" years where I went back and finished games I'd for one reason or another put down. During that time I finished Golden Sun (and then started and played its sequel to completion) finished Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and The Two Thrones, even buying Warrior Within to play between, finally finished Majora's Mask, played Metal Gear Solid 2 to the end to its completion after owning it for 11 years, finished Dragon Quest IX a whole decade after buying it and finally put Dark Souls down for three years before returning to beat it during early 2021. It was good timing too, it left me fresh for Elden Ring when that arrived.

  7. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 (29th July 2022)

    I have finished Chapter 5. How does this game keep getting better?
  8. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 (29th July 2022)

    Got really addicted to this game and powered through the story, I am now on Chapter 5... oh boy! Can safely say that if the pervious Xenoblade games were on the restraining order in how deep Takahashi was allowed to go it feels like the band aid has been completely stripped off and the they simply went for it. I'm going to admit that the identity of a certain character wasn't really a surprise in the end while the same time it also was.
  9. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 (29th July 2022)

    Playing through this game at the moment, currently on Chapter 3, its pretty great so far. I was worried that having 6 party members would make things overkill but removing the ability for anyone other than healers to revive party members fixes an issue where the class was just not outright useful enough in previous games. If you still don't like them, you can just not run with it. I got another class for Noah from one of the Heroes and I immediately switched to it as it was my favourite class from the original game, nice to be able to play that here.

    Monolith pls.
  12. The Best Gaming Music Ever.

    Started playing CrossCode recently and I know its an RPG and all that but... ...dang, this music is awesome!
  13. They only announced three waves so far and it looks like the third one has already passed. Still, I'm going to give up hope just yet.
  14. Well seems like badges have already sold out. Pokemon Company just sprung that on people like a month before it all happened and now there's none left. I hope they get some more stock in, I will be trying every morning to see if I can get any.
  15. Your Gaming Diary 2022

    So after being unable to get Omori on PS5, I could have possibly got it on Switch, but for various reasons decided not to. After running into a dead end with Meat Boy, I decided to forgo putting it off and went and swapped one precision platformer for another, starting Celeste. I should be able to finish this game pretty soon to be honest, not sure if I'm going to do the extra levels or the additional chapters but I might do. In terms of progress, I have just finished The Mirror Temple, so next up is Chapter 6. After that is finished I have also bought another indie game (really on the indie train now). I have purchased the RPG CrossCode which is supposed to be really good, has some Zelda elements to it too.
