1. Ori and The Blind Forest: Definitive Edition - End credits rolled the other day but I've still got the 2 added areas and some mopping up to do. This was a sublime gaming experience.

Isn't this now a free upgrade for original owners on Xbox One? Might roll out the Xbox this weekend and take advantage.

The port isn't perfect - I found myself second-guessing why I died half the time (being one-shotted from full health by basic enemies, instantly going into emergency time, things like that) yet found some of the sequences way too easy - but it's still a great game. Just sliding and diving around, popping enemies in slow motion feels perfect and I'd love more.  Shame I can't compare my score with the PS3 version!

1) Nier (PS3) - Endings B,C and D
2) Drakengard 3 - Branches A,B and C

3) Nier Automata (PS4) - Endings ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWX Z

Only missing one ending but it is a bit of a grind to get there and needs a certain condition on a certain boss fight, so I might do it one day. Overall another lovely Yoko Taro game with some help from Platinum games, which I'd say is more welcoming than Nier but neither one is better than the other just different.

I can see where people are coming from when they say that it's a bit short on single player stuff, but that didn't stop me spending three hours this morning alternating between Treasure Battle and Training with forum posts open on the other monitor. The fighting feels really good and it runs well on PC. I gather they increased the input buffer from 5 to 8 frames - as a VF player this has made it feel much, much less stiff than previous games.

 

My biggest issue is the loading times; even on PCIE SSD they take about 5 seconds longer than they should. We're a long way from DOA2 loading the next stage while the previous one's win pose is still up.

Lots of niggles but overall really good. Shows how much satisfying combat and a likeable main character, as well as a solid 'real' actor like Lance Reddick, can help an open world game out. Lame sequel tease at the end though.

JAN - Severed (Vita) (story complete)

FEB - Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes (360) (all achievements)

FEB - Paper Mario: Sticker Star (3DS) (story complete, Luigi found)

FEB - Four Last Things (PC) (all achievements)

 

MAR - Paper Mario: Color Splash (Wii U) (story complete)

 

So much better than Sticker Star, it makes the 3DS game look like an aborted prototype. The battle system flows better, the bosses don't suffer from the same kind of trial-and-error (on the whole, at least - there are still issues with a couple of them here) and it's absolutely the funniest game, script-wise, that Nintendo have released in years. Honestly, it's worth playing just for the gags.

 

MAR/APR - Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U) (story complete)

 

Finished this kind of by accident. After my first boss battle, I spent days . just exploring the world, ignoring the main quest. Finally got back on track and did the remaining three dungeons in short order, then decided to show my partner Hyrule Castle, which I'd already had a wander through during my extended period of exploration. Tripped over the main boss room and thought, fuck it, might as well see what it's like. Ended up completing it without meaning to, as a result. I do want to go back and finish off the side-quests that I ended up abandoning, but I might wait until the DLC hits and see what people are saying about that. Fantastic game, though.

 

APR - The Sexy Brutale (PC) (story complete)

 

Great stuff, this. Has the time-dependent, observational puzzle solving from Gregory Horror Show, Chulip and Majora's Mask, but with a much tighter, shorter period of repeating time to play in, with a character design aesthetic that recalls Viewtiful Joe. I absolutely loved this.

 

MAY - Calendula (PC)

 

Short, relatively clever meta-game with a similar approach as Pony Island. Very little to it, but memorable and fun while it lasts.

 

JUN - Virginia (PC) (story complete)

 

Brendon Chung meets David Lynch. Highly linear game story thing - think Gone Home, etc. - that's highly influenced by Chung's 30 Flights of Loving in terms of direction, narrative tricks and jump cuts that push the story forwards and cut out any waste. Lots of people with no imagination moaning about it being "meaningless" on the Steam forums, usually a sign that a game's doing something interesting. It doesn't hit its mark all the time, by any stretch of the imagination, but I can already feel myself wanting to go through it again in the same way that I want to watch a Lynch film again a couple of days after a first viewing.

3) Nier Automata (PS4) - Endings ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWX Z

4) Zelda Breath of the Wild (Switch) - Really liked it but I wasn't a fan of the stamina meter, it would have been nice to repair weapons and the lock on in combat always seemed a bit iffy, but overall I liked the direction the series is going in.
5) Rime - (PS4) - was ok

Fantastic!  Dialogue focused adventure game; with great voice acting and really cool time bending story elements.  Finished the game last night and I immediately went online to read up on variations to the ending.  Without spoiling it, there are lots of ways you can influence the end of the game and parts within the game, but in a way that doesn't seem obvious when you're playing.  So you can play through naturally but with the knowledge the game is reacting to your choices.  I really recommend this one.
