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.
