Increase to +1 for finishing Resident Evil Revelations for the RFN retroactive

Woo I finished it, here are my thoughts...

Overall I like it, but nothing jumped out at me as particularly unique or special. It's a Resident Evil game. Probably would have been a lot more impressive had I played it on 3DS, rather than the 360 where I already owned it.

I had heard that this game reused areas, so going in I expected it to be more of a Metroidvania. That's not really what they were going for though. I never learnt the layout of the ship as the amount of backtracking is fairly minimal. One of the main complaints I remember; scanning, I found to be inoffensive. You don't have to scan every single room and scanning becomes less effective as the game goes on. If I were to pick a favourite part of the game it would be the bosses. You really had to be careful with ammunition and look for weak points.

The game was just the right length, and didn't wear out its welcome. The game could have ended at chapter 11, so 12 was a welcome surprise.

I think the story is fine. Made little sense for most of the game, but things started coming together after the revelations in chapter 11. Again for a 3DS game it's a lot more impressive, I can't think of any games before or since on the system that pull off a realistic art style as well. Given the tone of the game Jessica's character design feels off, heels really? I also didn't like the comic relief characters Quint and Keith, as I felt none of their jokes landed. Jokes like "haha he likes computers, nerds am I right?" and "haha he followed Jessica home, isn't he creepy?".

I feel that this game is interesting as it pushed the boundaries of what handheld games were. But ultimately it's a spin off that doesn't quite stack up to the mainline RE series.

Duets are tricky man. There's no way we wanna be upstaged by a bunch of posers, but at the same time any publicity is good publicity right? How about we meet somewhere in the middle?

Ayyyyyy, okay I've got to go with this one. 49ers - Don't You Love Me

The competition is really hotting up. Kudos to everyone for making it this far, but this is the end of the roads for ya >:(

Back to square one at +0, for buying Telling Lies on PS4, needed something to fill the adventure game whole in my heart.

The concert is in two weeks and you're telling me there's still no opener! This is a disaster, an outright disaster. I don't care who you get, just get someone. Anyone will do. Here, use my contact with Bizz Nizz - Don't Miss The Partyline if you have to.

Must have been a slow month for Persona 5 Strikers and Little Nightmares 2 to be in the top ten.

Up to that sweet sweet +3 for finishing Doki Doki Literature Club. I had been meaning to play this for a while. Great writing and very much worth playing, plus it's free.

Bet they really enjoyed Excitebots

Excluding Wii U? I would rank them:

1. Wii
2. N64

Never owned an NES or GameCube so it wouldn't be fair to rank them. The list is purely a product of my experience growing up with a Wii and the other two consoles being older hand me downs.

Bravely Default 2 did decent enough

Also loved the fitness talk

All right Mr Gong, I've listened to your demo, and well... There's going to have to be some changes.

There's this one song however, couldn't get it out of my head! How does it go? Badum cha, badum cha, yeah that's it, Jimmy Somerville - Read My Lips (Enough is Enough). Book 'im, I want the lawyers down there with the paperwork before close.

Oh and congratulations Stratos!

It's outright bizarre that the sequel to this game, Revelations 2, has co-op for the story mode but it's split screen only!

Put a decent amount of time into this over the weekend. Something I was shocked to hear is that at one point a character says the word zombie, I thought that was banned!

Now up to +2 for finishing Tell Me Why.

It's a story game so the less the said the better. This is a smaller shorter affair, so if you're new I would recommend starting with the Life is Strange series. These kind are games are incredibly fun in co-op pass the controller style. The stories are so engaging you can't help discussing every little choice, sharing theories and predictions.

I have brought shame upon myself by also missing this thread. In.

Bought a couple of vouchers on the eShop for Bravely Default 2 and TBD, so that sets me back to 0 points.

However +1 point for finishing Yakuza 3 Remastered. I really enjoyed this. I'm playing the series in order and I would say this is my favourite game since Yakuza Zero, which is one of the best games of all time.

3 as a remastered PS3 game managed to exceed my expectations. Whereas 1 & 2 which were ground-up remakes, fell below expectations having been blown away with Zero. The game introduces some quirky new features, tons of side quests and the main story feels like the next big step in Kiryu's journey.

My main complaint would be all the hostess dating, which are required to finish all the substories. There's decent writing and some chuckle worthy jokes but why is there so much of it? Thousands and thousands of words, essentially a visual novel worth of text in this minigame. 84 trips to the hostess club and millions of yen later, I finally completed all the substories. Weirdly addictive but not very satisfying.

It's an interesting point. Expectations have ballooned to a point where it's impossible for directs to meet them. So will always be disappointing to a segment of the audience, because a direct is all things to all people, until the day rolls around and you don't get what you want.

I love the hype cycle, even though I know deep down I know that it's unlikely to meet that level of hype. Directs are vestiges of hope. Whereas mini directs are pleasant surprises.

Love this idea, the wicked temptations of new games are a strong and powerful force.

I don't think I'm going to get the 6 pointer, but breaking even seems like a reasonable goal. Count me in.

I think a Fire Emblem Echoes is a good bet, since Intelligent Systems have probably been working on something FE related.

For Smash I'm really feeling Astral Chain. I feel like the moveset writes itself.

BOTW 2 I'm going to say is a no show, they can probably fill the 50 minutes without it.

Kudos for keeping the thread updated. I stand by everything and await being proven correct.

I'm a big BBQ base kind of guy. Once I tried it I couldn't go back
