Finished Backbone over the weekend and rather enjoyed it, although things seemed to go a bit west in Act 3, I’m happy overall. I would definitely like to see more games in that world and featuring Howard.

It was also the first Xbox game I’ve got 100% GS since coming back into the fold. Is there an equivalent term to a platinum in the Xbox world?

Got myself a newborn so don’t know my arse from my elbow. Apologies if I seem tardy or incommunicative.

@AgentCooper There isn't anything like that on Xbox. We just have gamerscore. I game on both sides and I personally like the trophy system better. The platinum trophy is just a little extra push to continue the game until you complete all trophies, and that's a feeling which i don't have on the Xbox. I know its weird, since it's only a digital medal basically, but somehow it does help for me.

@Lavalera Yeah it is a shame there isn’t an equivalent. I’m definitely enjoying earning achievements but I do miss that plat ding, which I’m sure will lessen over time.

Pretty new to PS5 and have recently completed both games that came with it, Astro's Playroom & Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

Astro was fantastic, just as good as Nintendo's top tier platformers, IMO, and I loved the way it felt like a love letter to PlayStation history (gave it a sense of history that until now only Nintendo has been able to pull off). Earlier this week I finally found the last puzzle piece I was missing, so have now collected everything.

Wrapped Miles this week as well. I actually really enjoyed the smaller scale vibe & length of it, made the game feel much more personal (the time capsule, music, & postcard side quest lines really added to this too).

Currently Playing:
Switch - Blade Strangers
PS4 - Kingdom Hearts III, Tetris Effect (VR)

Got all the achievements on Tinykin a little while back, and have been jumping between different titles since. Tinykin is a definite GotY contender for me.

A Plague Tale: Requiem

There is some roughness in a Plague Tale Requiem. That's a pity because the production values are incredibly high and the game is overall better than the first one, except for Amicia that is more annoying, if that's even possible. Forced combat is clunky, with fast enemies of different kind, slow weapon and ammunition management, manual camera controls and fog that only affects your character (in chapter XV). The way to go through is trial and error and memorising the combat sequence. Graphics are the best the game has to offer. While the story is good, Amicia is so continuously irritating that I didn't feel the ending as I should. I rate the game 8 out of 10, being generous.

Innocence and Requiem are quite similar basically because the main character is an irritating chatterbox and she won't shut up for a single minute until the games are over. For all her infatuation with her brother, Amicia couldn't care less about her mother dying violently. In the first and second games, it's suggested that the mother spends much time researching but that's supposed to help her son. Still, Amicia keeps challenging her mother with no regrets. They're a noble family from France living in the 14th century but Amicia acts and swears like a 20th-century gangster from The Bronx. In the second game, it's obvious that Amicia hasn't learnt a single thing about concoctions or medicines in a conversation with Lucas, while she keeps complaining, blaming and rushing everyone else. Lucas, Arnaud and Sophia are far more interesting characters. In regard to the gameplay, there are stealth sections, puzzles and a lot of combat like in the first game, but the developers added a few concepts from Tomb Raider and bigger areas. The bigger areas are my favourite novelty although the lack of map is disappointing.

I disabled motion blur and it's much better because panning doesn't blur the screen, so I'd recommend other players trying that.

I just played Turnip Boy, and I think I beat it. I mean it said I beat it and I played an endless mode on the train that unlocks after, so yeah.

It was pretty funny. Turnip Boy is a total d***. Or he might literally be mentally handicapped and he actually just has no idea what he's doing all the time and just rips up every piece of paper he sees because of some brain damage or psychosis or something. Either way it's hilarious how he makes his way through the game world.

Underneath this surface level humor is hinted a dark and depressing dystopia that informs the player that the only reason these fruits and veggies are the dominant lifeform on earth is because of some manmade apocalypse. It's really a pretty interesting little game and stuck with me longer than I would have ever guessed for a game with cutesy anthropomorphic veggies that only takes a few hours to finish.

Finished Control thanks to Free Days Play. That means I kinda rushed it, yeah.
Maybe that affected my enjoyment, because man, I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would.
Gameplay was pretty fun, but aside from that: Story, characters, music... Yeah, nothing really too good at least for me. The voice acting and facial expressions were a little weird too.
Not bad, but not my kind of game, I guess.

@Lup I did not play it an a rush and I have similar feelings about it... For me the setting is fairly interesting but it does not deliver.

I finished beacon pines on sunday. It is more of a visual novel altough with a bit of puzzle solving at times (very light) with a twist that you have several para where only one trully ends the game (the other paths have a "the end" but with the narrator stating that it is not what you're looking forward, right?).

The characters are fairly interesting and it has some Nice twists I was not expecting but the star of the show is the narrator itself. She has a beautiful voice and delivers in every aspect. Highly recommended for anyone that it is not bothered by some lack of gameplay

Scorn - Not a great game. The graphics were good but the game itself was confusing and the combat, of which there was thankfully very little, was awful. Got all the achievments, as they were story based, and then deleted it.

Sonic Unleashed (Series X)

Sonic Unleashed is very confusing. My playthrough started when it got the welcome 60fps update on Series X. All my playthrough I've been wondering: What am I supposed to do? Where are the stages? Where is the laboratory? Where have the doctor and Tails gone? What was I supposed to do with the photos? Souvenirs? Food? Hidden medals? Hidden levels? No maps? No tracking? No user interface? It's the most confusing and chaotic 3D game I've ever played. NPC speak things that don't help at all, throwing a few stupid quests to your already complicated life. You can't skip those irritating conversations. And yes, the camera is bad like in Sonic Heroes and the Sonic adventure games.

The final stage alternates day and night sections repeatedly for over one hour and any second you run out of lives and have to start again. Eventually, I managed to get 99 lives easily by replaying the first seconds of Rooftop Run Act 2 where you get an extra life. Then I beat the final stage and the final boss. After all that, I found a few day and night acts I had not unlocked and played them. Then I replayed all the daytime acts. Then, I realised that even if it's just for replaying those, the game is worth keeping. They're not perfect, a few have those discouraging jumps with mandatory button sequences and a few obstacles are poorly placed, sometimes causing death because you're dashing on the surface of an ocean. You're supposed to go through there, but the person that tested was luckier than you. My conclusion is that Sonic Unleashed is quite unbalanced but playing the day acts in 60fps is glorious.

Arkham Horror: Mother's Embrace.
Got it for cheap and since I'm a fan of the board game it was a no-brainer.
It was a fun little game. Rough around the edges but interesting in trying to capture the board game's feel.
Maybe a little predictable but short and fun for one or two playthroughs.

Considering the huge amount of overrated video games and glorified "indie" titles, I wouldn't blame you for overlooking Playdead's Limbo and Inside. Inside (2016) is Playdead's last work, a platformer with difficult yet coherent and clever puzzles that use natural logic. Unlike other games that claim so, Inside is really a piece of art and an engaging video game at the same time and, incidentally, it's perfect for modern OLED screens. The ending, even the secret ending, might disappoint you, because it's intentionally ambiguous or just not defined nor explained but, if you want to learn about various players' theories, check this article:

UPDATE:

Limbo (2010) has shown to me how noticeably the developer improved and made a better sequel with Inside. Limbo is more focused on platforming, the punishing indie kind, with some incomprehensible puzzles thrown in the way, while Inside is one of the finest combinations of platforming and puzzles I have ever played.

It took 123 hours, but I finished Grounded! Just 0.49% of players have made it that far. I didn’t get the ‘good’ ending, but I’ve got a save that will let me go back and get it. The final battle is epic - I spent a week in-game preparing my defences. It still ended up in total chaos, with me throwing caution to the wind and wildly flailing at creatures I fled in panic from when I first started. Great game.

Finished Redeemer. Very short, little fun top view beat'em up. I'm guessing co-op is even more fun but I played it by myself. Still, it gives you more or less what you expect.
