Did you turn on the Dark Souls style Axis Invasions? Seems we get invaded every other minute. And I bloody love it!

I don't know, Craster set up the game. We never got invaded, so I guess not?

I tried that mode out and invaded a couple of people, it's pretty well done!

I’ll be honest, I didn’t care for it. I vaguely recall enjoying the original and don’t think I played the 2nd one much, but, from what I remember, it was an enjoyable hack em up.

Turns out, it tries waaay too hard to be cray cray and just comes off as a bit shit. 3 times you fight a boss who ends up being killed immediately and you have to fight someone else. There’s a musical chairs boss fight, but most of the fights are just standard affairs. Hack, hack, hack, yawn. Yeah, there’s jobs to do in between missions like before which includes mowing lawns and lots of other stuff that’s actually really irritating. But worse still, there’s no missions before the boss. You just run around the areas finding arena fights to partake in. It’s boring. It’s lazy. It’s not fun.

And it runs like shit on the Switch. Pop up, weird textures, textures loading in late, load times are long etc.

Frankly, Suda51 hasn’t done anything worth playing since Killer7. And he steadfast fucking refuses to put the updated PC version on consoles for some reason. Load of rubbish.

Boo. Most of our fun bits have been when we’ve got invaded and you’re looking for a phone to reveal their position or looking for some nazi that’s not acting like the others. Or when you’ve about done a mission and some dickhead turns up to put a spanner in the works as you dash for the exit.

Slightly prettier and with some Hitman elements but ultimately more of the same. Played it through on the hardest difficulty, authentic mode, and bloody loved it. Go loud or go home.

17. TMNT: Shredder's Revenge (XSX)

A pixel-graphic side-scrolling beat 'em up (apparently called a "belt fighter"? If you say so) featuring up to six (!) player co-op, this game is fucking lovely. You can be any of the turtles, or splinter, or April (who is a fucking kung fu God suddenly) or Kasey Jones once you completed the game once. It all looks fantastic and you can beat people up in lots of different ways and the music is fucking on point and I liked it a lot.

Downsides? Well, it's quite a bit too long (16 levels), and there isn't a huge amount of enemy variety (which perhaps makes it feel too long) and it's a bit easy (which perhaps makes it feel too long), especially in story mode.

But it's the turtles and the turtles are great. And it's free on GamePass (like all the other Xbox games in that list).

Pixel art is ace; sound effects are ace; music is fucking amazing; gameplay is the standard beat em up affair but modernised with combos and stuff and April O’Neill is by far the best character. She can juggle for days. Fucking great.

Clocked it in 3 sessions over 3 days on the hardest difficulty and it wasn’t that hard unfortunately. Needed to be slightly more challenging. Or maybe more penalty for the special moves over and over. Any comments…

Did you do it in Arcade mode? That's harder, as you have limited continues, no levelling up and the lives don't reset between rounds.

Just the story mode cause I thought that’d be the way to see all the content on offer. Might have a look at Arcade then. And maybe anyone else who hasn’t played it and wants it to last more than a few hours!

I had to laugh at the Technodrome having a techno beat as well. And the Wu-Tang members song coming in all of a sudden during the Shredder fight talking about pizza boxes on the floor. Seriously good soundtrack.

Cool ass game by the Gucamelee guys. It’s witty, it’s fun and the game mechanics (swapping characters and abilities and stuff) are well done. Yeah, really good.

18. Demon's Souls (2020) (PS5)

I'm not sure how I feel about this game. The remake looked and sounded lovely, there were many good bits, and I had a good time. However, I'm fairly sure I'd have had a better time if I'd just played Bloodborne again. The main problems I had with Demon's Souls were:
The mechanic that makes a world more difficult if you die too often. I mean, WTF? I didn't really understand the world tendency stuff and I still don't. The only thing I understood is "don't let it go black or it's going to fuck you right in the bhole").
Some of the bosses were hard (Spider-cunt and Flame-cunt), some were stupidly easy (all of them in the poison world), most were pretty simple.
Unless I didn't find them all, only some of the levels had shortcuts. I didn't hate the lack of checkpointing, but it could be a slog to get to the boss on some of them.
Being able to carry massive amounts of grass made things pretty trivial when you find a good place to farm it (which you discover fairly early on).
Having a max carry weight was a pointless annoyance.
Fuck the rolling ninja skeletons.


In conclusion: I liked it. But You can tell it was their first try.

1) Secret of Monkey Island (ScummVM/Switch - I think it was the PC version)
Still lovely, and I still remember how to complete it. The music didn't sound as good as I remember (this might be a PC/Amiga thing, or maybe it just wasn't setup right, but the Switch kept crashing when I went into the settings).
Already started Monkey Island 2 and I don't have a clue what I'm doing, but I'm blundering through ok at the moment.
2) Monkey Island 2
Got there in the end. The first version I played kept crashing on Phatt Island, so I had to start again. It didn't seem as difficult as I remember it, but I guess that just meant most of the solutions were still in my head somewhere. The few times I did get stuck, I knew what I was meant to do, just couldn't remember how to do it.
All ready for the proper sequel now...

3) Yakuza Kiwami PS4/5
After many aborted attempts to get through this since it first came out on the PS2, I finally made it all the way through. Unfortunately, I was playing it over such a long period of time, I usually had absolutely no idea who anybody was or what was going on. Fortunately, Yakuza 2 features a nice recap at the start of the game, which I probably would have rewatched before finishing this one if I'd known about it (although I guess it would have spoiled the ending, so maybe not). Anyway, it's still the spiritual successor to Shenmue, and I felt compelled to do far too many side stories for very little gain, but I'll try to finish the second (and subsequent) ones in a bit of a shorter time frame


4) Super Mario Bros - Super Mario All-Stars - SNES/Switch
Not sure why I played the SNES version rather than the original (although when I moved onto 2 on the NES, I couldn't deal with the button layout, so maybe it was a blessing). Anyway, I must have finished this loads of times, but always with gratuitous use of warp zones, so this time I went through each level (and made gratuitous use of the rewind feature), and also the "harder version" (was that on the NES, I seem to remember you getting a level selection when you finished it).

Anyway, onto the lost levels.

Coop parkour zombie killing fun. But with a plot that was notable mainly for making you wish there was less plot. (And towards the end just willing it to be over quicker)

I’m reasonably sure that you can only unlock one area in Bolataria Castle place at the very start on white world tendency on NG+ after killing the final boss. It’s right at the start and you run forward and it’s on the left. So I start NG+ on the old PS3, run over and it’s unlocked. I’m eager to have a sniff about and I reckon I died just a couple of times in this tiny area. I even misjudge something and fall off to my death like a dick. Then it was locked for good. Fucking world tendency shit.

You rather need to only play offline if you want to control it.

Then it's a simple casr of just dividing in the Nexus every time to best a boss and you can get to our white easily enough.

Then resurrect and die lots of times for our black tendency.

Online, it's very much the whim of the game world as to the state

5) Super Mario Bros - The Lost Levels - Super Mario All-Stars SNES/Switch
Well. It's like Super Mario Bros, but designed by someone that hates you. I cannot begin to fathom how you might play it without rewinding every few seconds (or sometimes rewinding entire levels, because you've run out of time getting lost), as the game likes to throw pixel perfect jumps at you, or jumps that you can't quite make, and have to approach in a different way. It's not Rick Dangerous-esque in how it tries to kill you, because you can always see what's coming, however it does throw pretty much everything it possibly can at you without cheating.
There was one part I couldn't work out how to get past without getting hit, and I eventually found a YouTube video of someone getting past successfully, but it was never something I'd have worked out how to do.

Goro would be a pretty great name for a cat.

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
1) Secret of Monkey Island (ScummVM/Switch - I think it was the PC version)
Still lovely, and I still remember how to complete it. The music didn't sound as good as I remember (this might be a PC/Amiga thing, or maybe it just wasn't setup right, but the Switch kept crashing when I went into the settings).
Already started Monkey Island 2 and I don't have a clue what I'm doing, but I'm blundering through ok at the moment.
2) Monkey Island 2
Got there in the end. The first version I played kept crashing on Phatt Island, so I had to start again. It didn't seem as difficult as I remember it, but I guess that just meant most of the solutions were still in my head somewhere. The few times I did get stuck, I knew what I was meant to do, just couldn't remember how to do it.
All ready for the proper sequel now...

3) Yakuza Kiwami PS4/5
After many aborted attempts to get through this since it first came out on the PS2, I finally made it all the way through. Unfortunately, I was playing it over such a long period of time, I usually had absolutely no idea who anybody was or what was going on. Fortunately, Yakuza 2 features a nice recap at the start of the game, which I probably would have rewatched before finishing this one if I'd known about it (although I guess it would have spoiled the ending, so maybe not). Anyway, it's still the spiritual successor to Shenmue, and I felt compelled to do far too many side stories for very little gain, but I'll try to finish the second (and subsequent) ones in a bit of a shorter time frame

4) Super Mario Bros - Super Mario All-Stars - SNES/Switch
Not sure why I played the SNES version rather than the original (although when I moved onto 2 on the NES, I couldn't deal with the button layout, so maybe it was a blessing). Anyway, I must have finished this loads of times, but always with gratuitous use of warp zones, so this time I went through each level (and made gratuitous use of the rewind feature), and also the "harder version" (was that on the NES, I seem to remember you getting a level selection when you finished it).

Anyway, onto the lost levels.

5) Super Mario Bros - The Lost Levels - Super Mario All-Stars SNES/Switch
Well. It's like Super Mario Bros, but designed by someone that hates you. I cannot begin to fathom how you might play it without rewinding every few seconds (or sometimes rewinding entire levels, because you've run out of time getting lost), as the game likes to throw pixel perfect jumps at you, or jumps that you can't quite make, and have to approach in a different way. It's not Rick Dangerous-esque in how it tries to kill you, because you can always see what's coming, however it does throw pretty much everything it possibly can at you without cheating.

Tedious shite.

It’s the monster battler that spawned the Persona series but now without the random battles (thank fuck)!

It’s also got less shit graphics than SMT3 that I played and open world levels. It’s also got this weird apocalyptic vibe that I really enjoyed. And, yes, it’s got the same story as the previous SMT games (IFAIK) where you make new friends, kill them and become a god.

I miss the social aspects of the Persona games but there’s just something about this that I really enjoyed a lot. It’s almost purer and less padded: just get some weird looking penis monster and go fight a demon have a shit on a toilet. This happens.
