  1. Quitter's Club: Don't be ashamed to quit the game.

    Heavy Rain I want to see where the story goes, but the gameplay and stupid controls made me quit the game. I think I made it to chapter 12-15.

    I beat quite a few in July. Here's some quick thoughts Little Nightmares Nice creepy little game. Very atmospheric and made my girlfriend jump a few times. A little short though. I liked how nothing was really explained about the story or setting. Tacoma Liked this game, simple story and looked great. I thought the rewinding and following characters around to listen to their stories was neat. The Red Strings Club Great pixel art and cool soundtrack. A pretty deep story which I didn't realise going into the game. Mixing drinks was fun. Framed & Framed 2 Two cool little puzzle games. I found alot of trial and error playing these games. I would purposely die just to see how the panels played out because sometimes they weren't very clear. I think only one puzzle was majorly difficult (mostly because it was a little out there compared to everything else). Valley I liked the story and setting. When the game worked you felt awesome zipping around at great speed, but numerous times I would get stuck on something or fall and all the momentum would go. Nice story experience though. A Hat in Time It was nice playing a colourful fun game. It was definitely rough around the edges at times, but I think that actually added to it. I got frustrated alot of times at jumping mechanics and other common 3D platformer traits. Mod support is really cool though. Happy with the variety of games I managed to complete this month.

    Persona 5 - Easy mode - 85ish hours What a game. My Persona game was 4 Golden on the Vita and I became a fan of the series. I didn't get Persona 5 for so long because I was intimidated quite honestly after seeing the reviews and reading comments. But I got thinking about it and just went for it, so I got it in March. Here are my quick takes. It's got to be one of the most stylish games i've never played.The transitions, music, UI everything is so slick. It's quite incredible. It's worth playing just for these alone. The Gameplay is what you'd expect - your daily routine, then the dungeon crawling with occasional super lite puzzles. I played it on the easiest mode available which basically means I could never loose. I would die and restart right where I left off mid battle. It's not a total fail safe, as I had numerous moments where I could not progress and had to backtrack to acquire different skills to move forward. I don't really like the Persona combat. I much prefer the outside the dungeon gameplay. So I did this so I could just enjoy the story. It wasn't all smooth sailing though, I was chipping away digging the game then I hit hour 50ish and started to feel fatigue. I went online and saw alot of people experienced the same thing. So I took like three weeks off then came back. I enjoyed the story and most of the characters, the music is awesome. I got the best ending so got a little more gameplay out of it. According to howlongtobeat.com the average playtime is 95-111 hours. I guess playing on easy skips alot of the grinding which was fine by me. So I beat the game and after started missing the daily routine gameplay.. hanging out with friends, studying, going to my part time job..It's a great game. Now to wait 10 years for Persona 6 I guess.

    I recently got Xbox game pass so I can try out State of Decay 2 next week. While I waited I finished.. Gears of War 4 - Normal - 6 Hours I've not played a Gears game in so many years, but its just as I remember. Bullet sponge enemies, going checkpoint to checkpoint, waist high cover to waist high cover, waves of enemies spawn in..Rinse and repeat. You know what you're getting yourself into and thats fine. The story was predictable and thin, the characters were uninteresting and flat, and oh man the writing must've been done by a 14 year at times. It's all throw-away garbage really. I still hate the goofy hold "A" to run.. while crouched? Looks weird and its annoying as you can't freely aim the camera this way. I also had a alot of weird stutters and freezes but only during cut scenes? In game I was pretty much solid 60FPS on ultra. Positives? The game looks really good, and I enjoyed the settings and locations. The game is content packed too.. campaign (while throwaway) runs 6 hours, its co-op split screen, or online. Horde mode is a blast, remains the best thing about the game. You can set up defenses while going through the waves. Versus.. i've never liked and never bother playing but its there. You have a ton of character / weapon skins, challenges, loot crates. Loads to do. I will probably keep playing the Horde mode until my game pass runs out.

  11. Quitter's Club: Don't be ashamed to quit the game.

    I think Shadow of the Colossus for me. Never played the original game, was going to buy the newly released PS4 but didn't. I just borrowed it from a friend and made it just over one hour in, four bosses down. The game looks and sounds great, but I feel the game is totally let down by janky controls and camera. I was getting frustrated so much in that hour I played, and obviously I don't know how the game unfolds but I spent an hour starting at the "base" following my sword to a colossi, killing it then returning to base. I repeated this four times. It's pretty boring and repetitive, and the world was completely empty. It's a shame because its regarded as one of the all time greats but, not working for me and I don't have time forcing myself to play a game i'm not enjoying due to how highly regarded its held.
  12. Am I dumb or is the Ruination for Feb not showing up on my podcast app? Its on YT
  13. As soon as my Sister told me this was a late night recording I had to watch this week instead of listen to witness the madness with my own eyes.
  14. Anyone got a link to that bit where Chris and jake stayed silent and just let Nick talk? I can't quite remember when that happened and would like to relisten to the clip!

    Wolfenstein 2 - PS4 Hmm I am mixed on this. I loved TNO and TOB but this felt like a step back in many ways.. gunplay and level design were worse, the constant BJ preaching got boring, the mixed tone with the story, the 1970s exploitation film thing didn't work for me, never did the sassy black woman and the other uninteresting characters. I still had fun killing Nazis in brutal ways, but yeah lacking overall.
