  1. A Plague Tale: Innocence (May 14th)

    I'm up to chapter 6 now, having played a little more today. I'm really enjoying the game. I definitely feel like I'm playing a Last of Us clone, though, like I already said! It's not a bad thing, but you can see exactly how the developers have tried to create a similar experience. Even down to the solo guitar instrumental that plays every now and again. As I say, no bad thing. I personally think it plays better then TLOU, as that relied heavily on its narrative and it's more what people remember than the actual gameplay. That's how it is for me, anyway. That game got repetitive quickly, and that's without the grind bore fest that TLOU2 turned into. This keeps things fresh enough to feel exciting and different, and with new recipe crafts being unlocked as you progress, it prevents the game from feeling too samey. That could all change as I get further in of course, but for now I'm having a blast. Im intrigued to see where the story takes me and why Hugo is wanted so badly. Hopefully those questions are answered. If I had my way I'd throw him to the rats and crack on alone. Whiney little bugger.
  2. A Plague Tale: Innocence (May 14th)

    So I have had this downloaded on my Series X for ages, but I finally started it yesterday. I've been in a gaming 'lull' for what feels like a loooong time now.i keep starting games, getting so far in, losing interest and not going back to them. Whether it's the game, or me, I don't know. It's likely me! So I felt like I needed something with substance to keep me invested and hopefully, get me out of my rut. I'm up to chapter 4, and I'm really enjoying the game so far. There's a real 'Last of Us' feel about this game. A tragedy to start, a growing relationship as events play out, and lots of stealth. Stealth play isn't my favourite, but so far it's punctuated with other gameplay elements that is keeping it all feeling quite fresh. The game looks lovely in parts, and I must admit what made me finally play this was seeing some screenshots of the upcoming second game in the series, which also looked amazing. The rats have just started to become a 'thing' now, and it's pretty gross shooing them all away with the fire / light. Anyone with a rat phobia needs to steer clear of this one. ūüėĀ. Fingers crossed I stick with this and it keeps my interest.
  3. TMNT: Shredder's Revenge (Switch, PS4, Xbox, PC)

    I downloaded this on Game Pass last night and played co-op with @LegoMan1031 It was a buggy mess. Not sure if that was either one of our internets (bad connection), or just the game itself? We had drop in and out, where my character would disappear yet still be on screen in the other players game. I had the level start screen appear 5 times during one level out of nowhere and it just kept adding me back where I was already at. So that was weird. Really enjoyed the first 5 levels though!
  4. Sonic Frontiers (Holiday 2022)

    Does it make me think "yes, this is what I want from a modern Sonic game" ? No. Still, let's wait and see.
  5. Nintendo Switch Sports (29th April 2022)

    I kind of expected a singles mode in tennis rather than just the 2 v 2. When I seen that isn't an option... Nope. Bye.
  6. What?! You can play it online?! As if! Didn't know that . Yesss always up for online!
  7. I bought this expansion after Mario Karts additional tracks were included with it. Seemed like a no brainer, as I wanted to get this anyway for a number of games. The one I was looking forward to most? Mario Tennis! I've always been a huge fan of the series, harking all the way back to this game which I got for my birthday one year as a kid. Well, I haven't played it since those days and it's utterly remarkable how solid the mechanics of this game are. When you play Mario Kart 64, the series had very clearly improved beyond recognition in terms of handling etc whereas with Tennis, they've actually dumbed it down to be a shell of its former self. I HATE these stupid trick shots, party games and gimmicks in tennis games. I just want basic, solid tennis and Mario Tennis is great at this. The amount of serves that go out or into the net if you don't hit them 'properly', and same with groundstrokes, feels right. In the latest Switch tennis game, you cannot miss a serve. To my knowledge anyway. And I've clocked over 350 hours on that game so. Same with ground strokes. You can't hit a shot out unless you're pulled wide and the character is too far out the court to make the shot and it'll drift long / wide. Its actually a little bit sad. I knew the games had become watered down in favour of racket breaking and power shots (utter shit mechanics btw) but it's pretty stark how much worse they've made these games over the years. Still, i'm having great fun with this because you actually have to work for points and be a little bit tactical, although by the time you get to the Star Cup it's almost like playing against a wall lol. Looking forward to playing more N64 games and reliving my youth!
  8. Nintendo Switch Sports (29th April 2022)

    Was literally only here for the tennis, and it is all I will be buying it for, and I kept getting the stupid sword game 3 times in a row!! Which I have zero interest in and was bored out my brain with. So I sacked it off. How very Nintendo to not let you choose the sport you want to play. Lol.
  9. Pokémon Legends: Arceus

    I played a fair bit of this when it came out but haven't touched it in over a week. It all felt a bit bare bones to me, but maybe it'll pick up. I may be in the minority, but I do still like the 'stale' formula of 8 gyms and Elite 4 providing the towns and the adventure around that is entertaining enough. This was ok for a short time but started to bore me. Too much text, a story that didn't really interest me in the slightest and repetitive gameplay added up to a disappointment. I may try again to get back into it, but right now I'm certainly not itching to.
  10. Pokémon Legends: Arceus

    Nope. Not buying it.
  11. Pokémon Legends: Arceus

    They sound terrible. Particulaly Pikachu.
  12. Pokémon Legends: Arceus

    I see they're still using the same 'cries' from the original RBY games 20 odd years later ūüôĄ. For the love of God why not just use the ones from the anime. The Pok√©mon deserve better!
  13. General Switch Discussion

    I bloody loved Links Awakening and I'm not a huge Zelda fan. I pretty much never finish Zelda games (BOTW was the exception). I did have to consult a guide for Links Awakening a few times, as like others said some old school elements remain which don't make a great deal of sense. But it was a great game IMO. I'm playing Diamond now and not enjoying it. Think it's the worst in the series and I've played them all. I enjoyed sword but hated the raids and the mega evolution stuff. Or whatever it's called now. But for me, Sword was a better game.
  14. It still doesn't help, though. I have strength, but strength is greyed out despite a Pokémon in my party knowing it. So I can't get past the cave to get to celestic town. I apparently now need defog which is obtained by someone in the safari? I mean I may have missed something here but why the hell would it be in the bloody safari. Anyway, to the safari I go.
