Also note the Devs themselves tweeted that people should stop asking for free review download codes because it requires PS+ and is free with PS+. So basically people are confused.

I done Carrion twice yesterday. Fun game if short. Also I wish I'd';v'v'e've checked that Game Pass had it first before buying it through Humble. I am a silly sausage.

FALL GUYS really is the worst game in the world for saying, 'One more round'.

I've been saying it for the last three hours now.

Still haven't had a first, was a gnat's cock away from getting to the crown in the final round but was pipped to the post by a wilier jelly bean, so that was 2/60.

Alien Isolation is very stressful, and I'm not very good at it. I find redoing the same bit over and over a little disheartening. Boy does it look good though and the Alien is scary. I'm not sure I'm going to see this all the way through.

Metal Gear Solid 5 seems like it could be fun. More sneaking about, like in Alien Isolation but at least this time I can cap some punks when I feel like it. Ground Zeroes was a nice intro and it felt good running round the base and taking out all the guards... although fuck the story and shit. Then I started the main game and the main game made me spend about an hour crawling around on a fucking hospital floor. While it was atmospheric, it was not a particularly fun way to get into a game and WHY DIDN'T THE SOLDIERS SEE OUR LEGS STICKING OUT FROM UNDER THE BEDS

The first level of MSGV is the worst introduction to a game in recent memory. When you get to the map proper and get to balloon men and sheep, it's great.

indeed indeed, I've had a lot of fun - especially now I've worked out how to be a bit of a sneaky sneakster and have got myself some better equipment (I'm not very good at stealth games and make very slow progress).

For the price I paid, this is super brill.

Sunless Sea - Tim the Philosopher is about to run out of food on his way to pick up a parcel for some shady fella who has said "don't come back without it!". As I have decided Tim is a flimsy sort, so he won't return without it, and would rather die at sea, alone, than risk a confrontation.

I finished the main campaign on Ghost of Tsushima last night, the game is toweringly, wonderfully, delightfully magnificent.

It actually got to the point where Mrs Hearthy and Jnr were watching as I played, to the extent that Jnr asked me not to play while she wasn't in the room if something significant was coming up story wise, and Mrs Hearthly would plant herself on the couch next to me just to watch, and has been asking about skill levels and controls and stuff, as she's not confident with a pad at all (watching her play Fall Guys was...... interesting) but really wants to give the game a go herself.

It's genuinely one of the best games I've ever played. Literally ever, on any platform. The combat loop remains incredibly satisfying right the way through the game, with your character getting stronger in all sorts of ways without ever feeling wildly over-powered.

That 'early hump' I mentioned a few pages back definitely exists, and indeed not long after I posted that the developers added in a LOW INTENSITY mode that makes the game easier than EASY mode to address that issue, but I managed to get through it on NORMAL and before LOW INTENSITY was added.

There are loads of reviews out there that you can look at so I won't bang on about it here too much, except to say I absolutely cannot recommend this one enough, it's properly fucking brilliant.

EDIT - Once you finish the main campaign and it does the ending cinematic and credits, you're put back into the game world with an epilogue and can carry on to mop up all the open world stuff you missed, and I've already decided I'm going to go for a 100%, which is really, really rare for me these days. Even the way it does this is nifty, it reveals all the Mongol camps/strongholds you missed in each area of the map, and once you beat all those, it then reveals all the other stuff for that area of the map, which is a super friendly way of doing things.

Spent all night last night in 'sweep up' mode on Ghost of Tsushima. I've now eliminated every single Mongol encampment/base in all three main game areas so the entire map has been revealed and each point of interest has a question mark assigned to it.

Starting to knock down quite a few achievements for doing endgame type stuff, including fully maxing out my Ghost/Resolve level meters to achieve the actual title (and named achievement) of GHOST OF TSUSHIMA.

Even with all the Mongol bases destroyed, the game still spawns random Mongol and bandit patrols here and there, so there's still a decent amount of combat available if you're in the mood.

At one point I saw a little island some distance off the coast and zooming in as much as I could with my longbow, it looked as if there was something on it, but there was no question mark on the map for it. I ended up spending a good 30 minutes getting to it, as it was off a mountainous section of the coast so I had to go the looooooong way round and then swim out to it. (I thought the game would throw up one of those 'invisible walls' but it let me make the swim.)

True enough there was the remains of a little camp there, along with a cache of goodies and a Sashimona Banner. The Sashimona Banners are one of the collectibles in the game, and for every ten you find you can hand them into a monk in one of the temples to get a new cosmetic appearance for your horse's saddle.

There is no campaign left to do now, and in honesty that's generally where I leave a game alone (Death Stranding and God of War are two that spring to mind that both offered an endgame of sorts, but I couldn't be bothered with), but Ghost of Tsushima is something quite special.

Yes, for clarity, (I've been experimenting with brevity and it's already gone horribly and demonstrably wrong), it reveals the entire map and puts a load of question marks all over it for the stuff you haven't yet found, once you've wiped out the last Mongol camp.

(Prior to completing the game and killing all the Mongols, it puts a question mark on the map when you get close to a point of interest, there are also multiple 'tells' in the environment to help you find them.)

The question marks relate specifically to 'objective' based stuff, for example a Mongol Camp, a Lighthouse, a Fox Den, a Friendly Camp, a Haiku spot, a Pillar of Wisdom, a Hot Spring, a Shrine, a Duel spot, and doubtless other stuff I've forgotten.

The Sashimona Banner in my above example didn't generate a question mark because it's just a collectible, not an objective. However, from looking at the island I was pretty sure there would be something on it, hence me taking the time to get out to it.

It takes a year or two to cleanse the pallette, but it's always a pleasure to come back to a far cry game. Started FC5. It looks beautiful, and these are very much the people I need to be killing right now.

Spent 90 mins on it last night: Star Wars Squadrons is mad pretty, and super intense. In VR it should be amazing.

I've got to have a play with the controls (annoyingly, pulling back to pitch up isn't default, like wtf?) And then I think I'll be better at it,as I was getting a bit frustrated with throttle control being very important.

Flying a TIE fighter through narrow, twisting spaces is great fun and the sounds are great with proper pew pew noises.

Just got this on PC to try. I wasn't sure it was worth £35 so I just got the EA Play thing for a month so I can play it for ten hours. Will report back on VR in a bit.

I don't know how you can play something for more than one second let alone 90 mins with the Y-axis the wrong way round.

Is it on EA play already? That's going to be part of Game Pass later this month so this is an interesting development.

That would do me, I only play games for a couple of hours these days anyway, then seemingly forget at all about it and move on...

Yeah, generally the same but it depends on the game, I'm 70 hours into flight simulator so far. But even if I did decide that I wanted to buy it then it would be 10% cheaper for having EA Play.

Ah cool... Just make sure you quit the game completely in this case otherwise the clock may continue to tick down while you're not playing.

Is it on EA play already? That's going to be part of Game Pass later this month so this is an interesting development.

Sort of but you can only play it for ten hours.

Ah, no you can't. It lets you play the prologue and then that's it for the story, the rest of the ten hours is just training and practice modes.

Turns out the trial lets you play multiplayer as well. Normally I hate competitive online shooting games of any type because I'm rubbish at them and so I usually die all the time and end up pissed off at my own ineptitude. But I gave this a go and I was a fucking killing machine, so I liked it. Either that or the game is horrifically unbalanced and I just got lucky to be on the rebel side.

So I'm a fair way into SOMA (safe mode activated) and the voice actor for the Simon character sounds so much like Matthew Broderick that I can't stop picturing Ferris Bueller floating around the Atlantic floor :)

I've been playing Hunt:Showdown a bit, it's pretty good.

It's like an objective based mini-battle-royale in a 1800's Louisiana swamp with zombies. It was only 13 quid in the PS4 halloween sale.

Spent 90 mins on it last night: Star Wars Squadrons is mad pretty, and super intense. In VR it should be amazing.

I've got to have a play with the controls (annoyingly, pulling back to pitch up isn't default, like wtf?) And then I think I'll be better at it,as I was getting a bit frustrated with throttle control being very important.

Flying a TIE fighter through narrow, twisting spaces is great fun and the sounds are great with proper pew pew noises.


I played this last night.. was meant to play one mission and stop, but no, it was great, ended up going to bed at 1 am :)

Flying an x-wing skimming a star destroyer was epic.

Also, the dog fights are mad :)
