Unfortunately, the only way to get him is from the PokeBall Plus accessory. When you connect it to your game, you get it. Only works for 1 account, you can't just borrow somebody else's PBP to grab a Mew off of it.

You're thinking of Mewtwo. You can only get Mew from the PokeBall Plus.

Resident Evil 2 Remake (PC) - 10/10. I'm currently on my first playthrough as Claire, having made it to the lab with Sherry in tow. Resident Evil 2 was always one of my favorites in the series and the remake is just phenomenal. I well and truly hope we'll see remakes of similar caliber of the other games in the series, along with some that we never thought would get a second chance (like Survivor, Dead Aim, and the Outbreak games)

Ah Yes, you're right.

Shut Eye {Nintendo Switch} 4/10
This is just a Five Nights At Freddy's clone. You play as a little girl who is stuck in her room away from her parents for a week (that's just what I read in the game's eShop listing, the game itself does nothing to fill you in on any sort of story).
It's a dark room and as you sit on your bed you have to check to the left to view the clock and see how much longer you have to survive, look to the right to turn on the outside light, and you're on a bunk bed and you gotta occasionally check the top bunk and underneath the bed for spare batteries to keep your flashlight and music box powered. The flashlight is used to keep your anxiety down and the music box is used to scare away the "monsters" when they start to approach your bed.

In my first time playing the game I was able to reach day six in just a single attempt and it took barely a half hour to do. That's when the first jump scare occurred and it didn't even scare me. It might've if I was wearing headphones, but still, these types of games are a one trick pony and the jump scares are all they've got, so it's important to get them right. I haven't been able to make any progress since then and seeing the same old lame jump scares over and over has worn them out.

Also, I checked out a video on YouTube of the Steam version of Shut Eye and it makes the Switch version look so dumbed down in comparison. If they didn't share the same name I would have thought they were different games.

Resident Evil 2 {PlayStation 4} 10/10
I'll keep it short and sweet: Capcom nailed it. I'm impressed.
I've only beaten Leon's campaign so far but during that playthrough I have no real complaints about the game besides in some areas it was just too dark to see without messing with the brightness settings. This is definitely going to be a GotY contender.

edit: After beating Claire's half of the story I'm bumping RE2's score to a 10. As good as Leon's campaign was, Claire's is more intense.

So I finally finished Uncharted (ps4) over the weekend. Got 47/60 treasures first time thru
Decided to move on immediately to Uncharted 2.
So far so good. Is it me or is the difficulty ramped up compared to the first? It feels like it's harder to find treasure (I'm missing a lot already), puzzles (or even just what to do next) are ever so slightly more unclear, and the combat is a bit more challenging, especially the stealth parts.
Has this been anyone else's experience?
I dig it, dont get me wrong

I remember liking Uncharted 2 the most overall. It seemed to improve everything from the first. So longer battles, more grandiose sets, and more challenging puzzles. And all of that made finding collectibles harder. Stick with it though!

I know I'm really late to the party but I finally popped in Metal Gear Solid V (X1X) after it gathered dust on my shelf for at least a year.

I thought there was too much story to start the game...you always need to get the player into the game quick IMO. Just moving the camera doesn't count. However, once it played out I was surprisingly interested in the entire prologue. Weird as crap but besides being a little slow at first, I dug it.

Then you start a mission and it feels like a completely different game. I haven't gotten too far yet but I'm excited to keep going. I've never been a fan of the MGS stories, but I do like the gameplay and level of polish they have.

You are not alone, I still havent beaten Phantom Pain. I did go back to it a couple of months ago and I think I have about 50 hours put in so far. I really like it, but the side missions are boring af.

MGSV was addictive AF for me. Those side ops were like crack. And if ya stick around long enough with it and do most of the side ops and story missions you get a really cool final boss battle and ending sequence.

I was shocked when I looked at my playtime on Steam for that game. And I'd only hit the first credits. Think it's my second most played game (on Steam) of all time now.

About 3 hours into Kingdom Hearts III and yeah. I may have to take off work on Monday because this game is becoming my everything. 9/10 so far. I'm basing my score off the fun factor of the gameplay and charm and not the convoluted story. Shutting the brain off and going back to member berry/nostalgia land is the absolute best way to play this game. The action is so damn fluid and robust. Some insane over the top special technical moves I can't even begin to explain. They must be seen to be believed. And I'm playing on a PS4 Pro and I swear the framerate is almost damn near locked at 60fps for the most part. And the graphics are amazing. Unreal 4 engine really makes it all feel like a super alpha Pixar movie.

I still need to get around to KH3. I got Tales of Vesperia, RE2, and KH3 on consecutive Friday's 3 weeks in a row but have been stuck on ToV for almost a month now with around 34 hours in. Next is probably RE2, then probably KH3. Oh, and Crackdown 3 comes out in like 6 days. Just too many games to play right now.

Save me Mr Tako: Tasukete Tako-San {Nintendo Switch} 6/10
With the overabundance of 2D platformers that look like they belong on the NES that are all over the eShop, this game stood out...by looking like it belongs on the Game Boy instead. It looks, sounds and feels like a Game Boy game. You can change the color palette and borders as if you were playing on a Super Game Boy.

You play as an octopus named Mr. Tako. You saved a woman from drowning, even though the humans and octopi are in the midst of a war. A fairy witnessed you save that human and you are then granted the ability to walk on land and you begin your quest to put an end to the war. As for how the game plays, the creator calls it "kirbyvania" and I feel it fits that description.

There are 50 different hats that you can acquire throughout the game and each one grants you a unique ability (that's where the similarities to Kirby come in). There are 6 worlds to go through, solving puzzles, talking to NPCs, playing mini-games and doing side quests along the way (to be honest I haven't liked most of the mini-games and I don't care about doing side quests because it was too difficult to remember who asked for what, and how to find that person again when you've done what they asked).

If "kirbyvania" sounds like something you'd enjoy, I'd recommend giving this a shot, but for me personally I was enjoying it enough that I was intending to complete it until I reached a boss fight a little over 20 levels into the game and the difficulty just felt like it spiked up out of nowhere. That put a damper on things and I've still not beaten him weeks later.

Assassins Creed Rogue Remastered PS4

im a few hours in and at first I was like eh.. but its starting to get more interesting. this is the first time playing it for me I didn't play it on ps3 at the generations end like maybe a lot of people didn't, which is a shame because its good and offers the most different viewpoint of the series of any of them ive played, which is only up to this one, ive played them in release order and one of my playing goals for the year is to get heavily caught up on this series, if not all the way to odyssey Im hoping to get at least up to the end of syndicate around all the other games I want to play this year.

it starts to really get interesting after Shay leaves the group, so if you're playing it for the first time like I am resist the urge to go explore as you'll unlock some fast travel spots and get some ship upgrades and whatnot, as I now see I burnt a lot of time.
its interesting to see that there are members of the Templar and assassins order who question things, which of course we have seen many times, but this time you aren't just seeing it you ARE it.. and seeing how the events change Shay and put him (you) on the other side of this age old conflict is interesting at least if youre interested in the lore of the series. its very fashionable to hate on AC, and I get it, its ubisoft and its samey and this and that, and I get it, but still I like the lore and the history, and playing on the opposite side is interesting and is a different take on the all Templars are evil, shay doesn't seem evil, he thinks hes doing the right thing, as does Col. Munro, who also doesn't seem evil. to the Templars the assassins are the ones on the wrong side of things, causing trouble and disrupting order, in most conflicts both sides tend to think they're right though. I find it odd they paint assassin bases as "gang hideouts" though, and some of the same things you did in the other games, like saving citizens or saving native tribes, you're saving them from assassins, which doesn't make sense, and assassins are shaking people down like the mafia, which isn't something they would do.. so im interested to see where they are going with this.

if you've played all the other assassins creed games you already know how the assassins will attack you, so luring them from their haystacks or seeing them in the bushes, or seeing three people on a bench.. youre like.. haha I know that trick, but its still different to be on the flip side of it.

Rogue was a good time. I enjoyed my time with it for the most part. I definitely liked the naval battles on the icy seas. Shay was a likable character too. Although I am kind of done and burnt out with new AC games, I am looking forward to AC3 remastered next month. That was one of the underrated AC games I felt.

Ya Connor I thought was cool and the twist about his father being a Templar I thought was also pretty neat. The combat for some reason reminded me of Batman Arkham with the counter system, which I also really liked and the ending was eerie too because it was a deep foreshadow of what America would eventually become, one obsessed with taxation, political agendas and controversial ideals.

Yeah, ME2 rubbed me the wrong way, but ME2 and 3 were still good.

Series got obliterated with Andromeda. You could tell they had lost the path when the combat was THAT polished, and feel-good, and the game feels dead regardless. Makes my face tired.

Andromeda is my jam! Flawed, but still a really good time if you can overlook its issues. Honestly, I like every Bioware game. Even ME3, Dragon Age II, and Inquisition. I think I'm just a Bioware mark, really. But even a mark like me isn't falling for this persistent online nonsense they are doing with Anthem. I still hope it does well commercially. It would suck to see EA shut down yet another studio.
