I just finished Haven last night. Good game. Really enjoyed the music and story, the loading between islands was a bit annoying, it was fast but just didn't want it at all lol. Spoiled i know. Apparently it's loaded with rare achievements as i got like 10 of them...if more people eventually get them do they become regular achievements?

Off to Tekken 7 before it's gone to rack up gamerscore for the January punch card.

@Krzzystuff glad you enjoyed it, I got quite far into it and got fed up. The combat never clicked with me, found it really annoying especially with later enemies. Game had some performance issues too but it’s worth a try for anyone on gamepass.

Just finished Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia on Wii U. I've been playing this game on and off for the past 8 months and I'm just glad that I managed to eventually finish it after having taken a long break from it during that period.

Anyway, I had a blast with this game. This is my second favourite Pokémon spin-off series (after Pokémon Mystery Dungeon) and the whole gameplay mechanic of using your stylus to draw circles around Pokémon in order to capture them is very fun and addicting, I can never get enough of that! I remember playing the first Pokémon Ranger on my DS as a kid (probably 13-14 years ago) and I liked it but I thought it was a rather tough game. However, it feels like Shadows of Almia toned down the difficulty significantly. It's too bad though that I never continued with this series as a child, but at least the sequels are available on the Wii U eShop and for a very cheap price as well (€7) compared to buying second-hand physical copies at €40-50. I'm definitely buying the third game as well.

What I didn't like about this game is the side missions. They were fun at first and added more stuff to do besides the story, but then they started becoming tedious and not as fun anymore. Not to mention that you have to do side missions in between story missions before you can progress with the story, which was just annoying at the end when I just wanted to finish the game.

Overall though, it was a highly enjoyable experience that was reminiscent of the time I played the first game as a kid, as well as a throwback to a time when Nintendo was just going crazy with trying out different ways to play games with the DS and Wii. Sometimes I just need a break from using standard controllers and play something completely different instead. This did the job really well!

Ok so i finished the Tekken 7 story last night and...meh. I'm pretty sure it's just a Tekken thing as the game mechanics weren't for me and I recall it being similar way way back on PS1? The story was very lackluster compared to MK games. I tried it and now I know. It's gone Jan 15 if you're into fighting games.

After the disappointment of Tekken i booted up My Friend Pedro and man....that's a fun game. Enjoyed it so much that I finished it in one sitting at the cost of valuable sleep. I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't played it yet, it's also gone on Jan 15th. The gunplay is a lot of fun and you get some pretty good kills bouncing bullets off a cast iron skillet... trust me it's awesome.

Next up it's either Gardens Between, Full Throttle or Day of the tentacle.

Just finished the Inheritance DLC for Layers of Fear and it was pretty good. Nothing special, it's basically more Layers of Fear but it was pretty interesting since it delved into the backstory of one of the characters in the game. Also, the DLC reminded me of just how good Bloober Team is at making you scared and confused because you have no idea what's going on in this game, lol. Love it!

@Krzzystuff Have you had a chance to play Full Throttle or Day of the Tentacle yet? I'm not too fond of point-and-click games but seeing as how they are only 4-5 hours long each, I thought I'd give one of them a try, especially since they are both on Game Pass. I'm always looking for trying out games outside of my comfort zone, so I'm hoping these games are beginner-friendly for people like me.

@LtSarge I'm maybe 30 minutes into Day of the Tentacle and so far it's pretty easy to use on a controller. It's too early to see how hard the game actually is. I recall Grim Fandango from my childhood so I'll be playing that at some point as well.
