I didn't think I was going to like this but then I played it and I loved it. Crawling up a gay's arsehole; Kim Kardashian's foetus, anal probing, oh and fighting as a dwarf on a bed while your parents are doing it and then avoiding tactical ball swings, and Randy, just Randy and so on.

The only weakness was the repetitive nature of the combat and some of the longer special moves. It didn't seem quite nuanced enough. It was good and absolutely functional but it never really challenged me much. I died in combat probably twice and that was only early on.

Edit: apparently the European console versions were edited but not the PC. Yippie.

I think I might've played a demo of it or something. I dunno. I was put off with the idea of turn based combat but if it's not actually that hard I'd be happy to get into it for the sake of the comedy. Hmm...

I'm not a hardcore RPG player, but even I found it to be a piece of piss. I've just had a look at a couple of reviews on it and they all say it's too easy so you might want to give it a punt while it's cheap. Plus, you never know, it could be an entry to trying out some other RPG games which you might otherwise have avoided. Xenoblade Chronicles was my gateway game and I've got no difficulties picking up an RPG now that might interest me (I haven't played many but I've played some of the best ones that were on my radar and never regretted it).

44. Layers of Fear + Inheritance DLC: I've played the main game before but enjoyed it at the time and just fancied playing through it again for some reason. Sadly it didn't hold up anywhere near as well the second time round and while certain sections still held my attention a lot of it felt pretty repetitive and trudgey now. Unsurprisingly the DLC was more enjoyable given it's novelty, and there was also more sense of actual branching paths going on. Indeed I looked parts of it up afterwards and there were whole sections and puzzles I never came across which speaks to a certain amount of depth. Taken together this gives it a faintly positive meh/10.

20) Half-Life: Blue Shift (PC)

It's Half-Life but barely controllable with the steam controller (thanks to some weird glitch that meant the Xbox One pad would cause me to look at the ceiling and I couldn't shift it). I enjoy the SC but, fuck me, I couldn't find a sweet spot with the movement. It was either too fast or too slow and, of course, this Half-Life introduces "puzzles" that were turned into trials of patience as I pushed boxes too far or off to the side or fluffed another jump or fell off a ladder. It might have been alright had I got my controller to work but it was massively frustrating on the SC.

And it's not actually that interesting either.

And it has a Xen level.

Overall: meh.

45. ICARUS.1: an exploration type game that sees you as an investigator raking through an empty mining ship to try and work out what happened to the crew. It looks pretty nice and the atmosphere of the abandoned ship is palpable but that's about all the game gets right sadly. The puzzles are barely worthy of the name (find keycard in one room and put it in the keycard slot elsewhere) and are only made at all difficult by the darkness of certain sections of the game making pickups hard to find. It would still be, and sort of was, a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours if not for a load of amateur mistakes increasing the general frustration of the experience. To wit:
  • The voice acting of your companion AI is just a blatant text-to-speech transcript which sounds terrible. The other AI in the game is given a genuine human voice so this is an odd choice.
  • There are no save points at all so you need to either completely finish a chapter or you're starting it again. They're short enough once you work out what you need to do but if you miss something you can be hunting around for a while. Also, there are a couple of instant death sections so you end up genuinely scared of dying purely because it means redoing a load of stuff.
  • Any option changes (e.g. inverting Y) are thrown away whenever you die or start a new chapter which is fucking stupid. This is made worse by the fact that you can do everything in the game with a control pad except enter/leave the pause menu. Grrr.
  • The controls are never mentioned or explained. In the case of jump, use, etc that's not a massive problem but there's a run button hidden on one of the bumpers and some of the platformy bits absolutely required that to work. I spent no small amount of time repeatedly trying a jump because I could get really close so I thought it doable and just finicky. Only eventually did I stumble across the run button and then battered that whole section in my next attempt. There's even a Steam review with someone complaining about being stuck because they can't make a jump, which would be amusing if it wasn't so unnecessary.

Yeah, but for the wrong reasons. You don't fear death due to any inherent tension but because the punishment is to get up off the couch and walk over to the PC keyboard so you can redo your lost 'invert Y' settings then sit back down on the couch and redo a load of stuff you've already done. It's not teaching you any lessons or improving your skills, it's just a pain in the arse.

Graphics still hold up despite being a ten-year-old game. The free running aspect is a lot of fun and I liked the story. The combat was a bit iffy, the NPC chatter was repetitive to the point of distraction and it was really frustrating having to effectively face three end of game bosses consecutively, but I hear that AC2 managed to fix a lot of the annoying things about the original game.

Not sure how it compares to Unity though, sorry Bamba

47. The Turing Test: a sci-fi puzzle game that gives you a pseudo-gun with which to work through a load of puzzle rooms while the over-arching story about an AI gone wrong plays out. So, yeah, it's basically Portal. The story is presented straight rather than with any kind of comedy and the central mechanics contain nothing as mind-bending as a portal gun but still, it's clear where it's inspiration came from. That said, it's definitely A Good Game. It looks lovely, doesn't outstay it's welcome and smoothly accomplishes the trick of introducing simple mechanics then ramping up the complexity. It even manages a mid-game reveal that's not only a pretty sweet plot twist but suddenly changes how you look at and interact with the test chambers. The plot itself starts off strong but kind of falls apart at the end--and is mostly told through fucking audio logs because of course it is--but it does the job of framing everything. My only real criticism is that if you've played the Portal games you might find it a bit too easy. It's got a few mechanics in common (light bridges, buttons, etc) but more so because playing Portal just trains your brain so well to parse these kind of challenges. If you just fancy some engaging puzzling, or are usually put off by the difficulty of stuff like Portal, this comes highly recommended. It's also out on all the major platforms so accessible by all.

I bought that in the Xbox One sale the other week. I haven't completed yet but I'm told it's not that long. Is that right?

7.2 hours according to Steam; though it will massively depend on how good you are at these types of games of course. There's an optional and slightly more difficult level available per stage (of which there are seven) and that completion time includes knocking all those off as well.

I didn't know anything about it, I hadn't heard of it and I had no intentions of playing it until I played it and then I had to finish it. I've a soft spot for Norse mythology so this got a free pass with all the lovely Norse madness and Viking speaky language guff.

So, yeah, it was pretty alright. Nice art, interesting subject and it was quite challenging but not too long.

Norse out of ten.

The levels are piss easy with hardly any challenge but the bosses can range from pussycats to moderate requiring repeated attempts. They're manageable and if you complete a few of the levels and collect the items before attempting any of the bosses you'll have some decent powers to spam.

I reckon you'll give up before completing it, mind. You've got a pretty low tantrum threshold, right?

I do, yeah, but that doesn't sound too horrendous so I'll give it a shot.
