Sky Rim was my last major play on Xbox 360.

Spent weeks then realised you can never actually beat the game, just runs over and over doing same missions...lost the feel then.

Currently doing the Halo games starting on Reach and enjoying it.

I can't say I'm surprised that sky rim dissapinted you.

I've been replaying Miitopia over the last few days and it's been fun.

It's not a masterpiece but it is a really fun Game to play if you've got nothing better to do.

find the controls on season 3 much better than previous two seasons so far


and as for dialogue choices, i try my best to remain polite, calm unless someone is being a downright asshole then i have no choice but to be nasty at them back

Just be hostile to the love interest in Season 3 Nicky and then you're well away.

I've played the first Luigi's Mansion Game on the 3DS and it is a decent Game, but I'm sorry the difficulty is far too high for my tastes (and I say that as someone that's beaten SMT: Nocturne & San Andreas) so I'm not a wimp when it comes to difficult Video Games.

However the level that beat me lasted over 40 minutes with no checkpoints, aggressive enemies, finding Mario's items which can be frustrating, and then the actual boss fight with Boo had clunky as hell controls and it ended up killing me.

Basically if Nintendo do a version of Luigi's Mansion that actually has a checkpoint at that level then I'd give the Game another chance as all of the levels that I'd played are actually well made, but to me there's a difference between difficult and then being unreasonable, and sadly Luigi's Mansion has fallen into the unreasonable camp for me.

I've also been replaying FIFA 12 which was fun to play.

I'm playing through FFVII Remake on the PS5, I was planning on just playing the DLC, but then I realised that my saved data was on the PS4 that I wiped and got rid of so I'm using it as an excuse to play though again.

I've also started Cris Tales on the Series S, it's cute so far. I like the time mechanics in battles. So, like, you can poison an enemy, fling them into the future and they'll instantly take all the poison damage at once. Or you could use that poison attack on an enemy in the past, bring them back to the present and that poison will have spread to their allies. It's quite an interesting system.

I'm not entirely convinced that save data will transfer between FFVII remake entries. I hope it does, to make it feel like a more cohesive "single long game" once all parts are released, but I feel like it's going to start over as pseudo-level-1 just with a more powerful "base level" to reflect the experience gained in the first game.

I feel this is especially likely given that it's apparently a bit of a headache to transfer the PS4 save data for it to the PS5 version... you basically have to install the PS4 version before you get the PS5 version, go into the game menu, upload the save to PSN, quite, completely delete the PS4 version data, THEN get the PS5 version, and download the save from PSN. If you do it in the wrong order you can't downgrade from PS5 version to PS4 version to access the save file .

So... it's not been designed in a way that particularly has me thinking they'll be carrying over the data. The vast majority who played part 1 on PS4 simply won't have access to that data on PS5 (which presumably, most people will be playing part 2 on, if there even is a PS4 version).

Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal.

It's a fun Game so far, it's annoying trying to get the badges though.

It's perfectly fine Nicky, just put in all of the stuff that you did in the first three Seasons and you're away.

Oh and I've played Home Sweet Home on the PS4, that is some creepy ****, and the difficulty is sadistic but oddly fair at the same time.

so i had my start on TWD final season


love it already, Clem & AJ



as for the ''romance'' i'm more drawn towards Violet, who i feel is so similar to my Clem, and Louis is soooo similar to all the people i travelled with in previous seasons who ended up dying, music is fun yes but in a world like that music is noise so it is dangerous as it attracts walkers



as for the train station,
Spoiler:

i pushed Abel out of window towards the walkers



i petted Rosie, of course love her too

I think there will be some sort of crossover, but only for people who have the PS5 version. I think it'll be a case of keeping Summon Materia and potentially weapon and skill progress.

i'm into final season of TWD



into the end of episode 2 of Life is Strange




into experimenting with FIFA 21





and i got my shortlist already sorted, for my birthday wishes, i only want to continue with LiS when i can also move on with Before the Storm, and then onto True Colors, i think i'll skip the second one, but maybe wise to play BtS since one of its characters Steph is in that, maybe there are things what i say or do, what she'll mention in True Colors idk episodic adventures have me puzzling like such all the time



i so wish telltale would still exist, since their games i find fab, and i think there were still so much more series/movies they would've been able to make also episodic adventure genre out of (like i think Alien franchise would've worked better with Telltale, or Spiderman, or a game based upon Riverdale would also been nice, for you to interact with some of main characters but still your own storyline)


so many game ideas i have myself

had started over with TWD New Frontier, i had ****** up with some of my choices somehow (tbh i think i'm going to play season 1, season 2 few more times either since you got many many outcomes, choices, dialogue options) and i still have to play 400 days and Michonne for first time


my F1 2021 game we ordered that now, and will arrive on tuesday already made a decent longlist of team names, and driver name ideas (i want existing former driver names but also few original name ideas of course)

Cris Tales

It has a good first half and a truly terrible second half. The battle system starts off great as there's a time manipulation mechanic that they really make use of during the first half but it's basically thrown to the wayside in the second.

It's like they ran out of budget in the second half as the story has no flow to it and you're forced to return to each of the previous four cities three times in a row before the final battle for padding purposes. The game is also only around 15 hours long which is pitiful for a RPG and when you eventually see the world map, it's literally just four small islands floating in a vast empty sea.

It's a mess and and full-priced one at that. I pity anyone who actually brought this game.

As a Game Pass game, I'd give it a 5/10 since I really did enjoy the first half but if I spend £35 on this game, I'd have given it a 2/10 at best. It's a £10 game at best being sold for more than triple the price.

I’m still on Ghost of Tush, taking my time and not getting huge amounts of time to play (and I got distracted by an epic Stellaris campaign for a couple of weeks). Also I got the PS5 upgrade and it was buggy as **** for the first week- I was a bit worried - it was having loading issues . menu elements taking ages to pop in was the first sign but the main issue was that it drastically affected AI pathing and NPC positions. In short, enemies couldn’t pathfind properly and we’re getting hilariously stuck in random places, but worse than that, they weren’t “physically” where they seemed to be. Sword would go right through them. There was also a split second delay in their combat animation vs the actual hit which made dodging and parrying - basically the pillars of the combat system - nearly impossible.

They did patch it relatively quickly, thankfully.

Anyway I am now playing through the new island before finishing The main game… once you start it you have to finish it, the enemies are tougher than main game, and you get a tonne of new abilities. I feel like I’m going to be arriving back in the main game massively OP .
