Very underrated RPG. I enjoyed the entire game from start to finish and would definitely buy a sequel if Fromsoft ever made one.

It's a Nintendo owned IP, so best to bite the bullet on a Nintendo system.

Plus, bundled with the few hundred bucks that you'll be shelling out for a new Nintendo system, you will also have access to all those sweet Nintendo exclusives.

Oh yes. Binary Domain is fantastic IMO. Its a normal over-the-shoulder third person shooter, but the story and the characters are superb. I really liked it.

Super Mario Odyssey {Nintendo Switch} 9/10

I had skipped as many of the previews for this game as I could because it's Mario and I already knew it was gonna be great so it's not like they had to convince me. With all the praise the game was getting I was expecting it to take the crown of best 3D Mario title away from Super Mario Galaxy 2. While Super Mario Odyssey is quite freakin' awesome, I'm not convinced just yet that it takes the crown. I've spent a lot of time with it, I like the big worlds and I like exploring them, but damn they need to knock it off with making modern Mario titles so easy until you reach the last 10% of the game. Seriously, some of the stars are right there out in the open, you don't have to search very hard or do anything to earn them, you just walk up and take it. There are others though that are hidden really well or require you to butt-stomp on a very specific tile. But if you're not the type of person who goes for 100% completion in games, you're probably just gonna breeze right through this like it's nothing.

The 2D sections are a really cool little bonus but I don't like how they control because you can only use the analog stick, and there is no proper d-pad on the Joy-Con (which is really going to suck when they inevitiably bring Super Mario Maker to Switch). To me, controlling a character in a 2D platformer with an analog stick just feels wrong. The 2D sections are just a very minor part of this game though, and the controls for the rest of the game in general are solid.

The music is typical Mario style. Not exactly the kind of stuff I'd listen to in my free time, but it sounds good while playing.
Overall it's a fantastic game. It's not quite the breath of fresh air for the series like Breath of the Wild was to Zelda, but it's a great game and definitely recommended for Switch owners.

I'd actually like to know the opinions of anyone who has skipped the last couple of Nintendo consoles and has not played a Mario game in a while, how they feel about this game as like a reintroduction to the series.

elite dangerous ps4, this game is really good but its also got quite a learning curve, one of the biggest ive seen in a console game. parts of this are what no mans sky was supposed to be, playing with a stick and throttle is pretty sweet, this is something I could see being sick in VR.

Tokyo Xanadu eX+ ps4, definite persona vibes but with action rpg combat, so far its really really good. if you liked persona and like rpgs this is a pretty easy one to recommend, if I had any time off left at work id be home playing it now.

I am REALLY tempted to go pick up Tokyo Xanadu. I am already juggling Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and FFXV...might as well add another super long JRPG to the mix.

Resident Evil Revelations Nintendo Switch 7/10 (so far)

I'm 4 episodes in now, so only 1/4 of the way through the game.

Pros:

-Works great on the Switch and looks decent enough
-A good mix of RE4 and RE5 style gameplay (it kind of goes back and forth between the two)
-Better story than RE5 or RE6
-Cheap
-Physical copy requires no addition download

Cons:
-Crap story (even for RE)
-No optimization for Switch
-VERY repetitive and simplistic. I'm already getting bored. It's not a very long game, but it feels long.
-Lame, uninspired boss battles
-WTF does there need to be 12 episodes? That's ridiculous. 4 or 5, would have been fine. Just extend the gameplay on each one.

Overall, it's a decent game, and it's closer to classic RE than anything in the last decade, but it still falls short, IMO. Hopefully, RE2 is better. It sounds bad the way I say it, but it's still a solid game. That's why I have it a 7/7.

Arkham Asylum 7.5/10 My review may be higher if I played this before the others, I've played this intro multiple time just never got to the end of game for years. I deiced to finally beat it with the remasters out on xbox. I really like the vibe this game has over the others, the creepy your trapped inside with maniacs keeps you on the edge. I really liked scarecrow in this game, he is way better in this over Arkham Knight. I thought the story was very weak, Joker wanted titan but, why? He never wanted to beat batman in a fist fight he wanted to break the bat mentally. He wants batman to kill, to break his code. I also hated the back tracking, besides that it was a fun game.

Ffxv of those would be my choice. I really loved it. It starts slow you gotta give it a little time to get moving fully.

Keep Tokyo Xanadu on your radar though I know you'd love this too.

Need for Speed: Payback (PS4) - 6/10 - I knew what I was getting into and I enjoyed much of this, but it lacks something special. However, the off-road racing is a nightmare. It's not just slippy, you just can't actually get skillful at it. When forced into off-road races I cursed constantly at the tv and it killed everything I was enjoying.

Here are youtube videos that show you how to beat bosses. Some fights are long too because you can only damage certain ones by using counter abilities and stuff. Fun game but a couple of the boss battles could be frustrating. I got to admit too, I spent way more time growing plants than I probably should have. It was surprisingly relaxing.

The high score is simply because it was free, but it's really fun too. I played Frankenstein and only got around 1 bil points, but it was still a blast.

All three are great choices, man but if I had to pick just one it would be Bloodborne. It's one of my favorite games of this entire generation and should be a nice change of pace after Breath of the Wild.

I've been playing Skyrim VR PlayStation 4 a bit. I'm still VERY early on, so I'll just attest to the controls and functionality since I'm sure everyone here knows what Skyrim is like by now, anyway.

Pros:
-It's a full fudging game that's also VR, and that's saying a lot
-It looks pretty damn good considering it's a massive VR game
-The Magic looks and works awesome (I'm glad I chose to be a High Elf)
-Using teleporting, multiple buttons at once, motion controls, and intelligent button mapping, Bethesda has been able to pull off something in Skyrim that other VR games couldn't accomplish: full game functionality and actual real-time (basically) movement
-Only with Skyrim and Arkham VR (of the games I've played( have they gotten even acceptable at positioning. What I mean by this is that when you walk or are near something, you're actually near it and can interact with it as you should be able to (for the most part)

Cons:
-I'm not the type to get motion sick or get headaches easily from VR, but this did a bit of both, so if you're at al susceptible to that, this game may not be for you. The teleporting and perspective shifting (using R x and o) alone are enough to fudge with you
-It's kind of difficult to play Skyrim VR because VR is not comfortable for long periods. I barely got to Riverwood and had to stop playing.
-The game is definitely more glitchy than other versions although I think that's just the trade off for VR functionality
-Using swords is not nearly as fluid as using magic. That probably needs a patch.
-This is a limitation of PSVR means that your play area is not what it should be for a game like this. I felt forced to stand too much.

Ultimately, this is nasty Skyrim on VR, so yeah, there's that. This is definitely pretty cool. I doubt I'll really make a go of it for hundreds of hours the way I would on a traditional play through, but it's still really fun and looks cool.

Move controllers are required (as far as I know), so make sure you pick up a pair if you're going to play. Again, I'd also recommend magic over weapons (although I haven't yet tried a bow). The button mapping and teleportation take a bit of getting used to, but once you have it down, it's actually a pretty seamless experience (for the most part).

If you love Skyrim, I'd recommend this game. Just make sure (and I can't stress this enough) to use R x and o to reposition your view. Don't try to turn yourself more than you need too, or it may mess you up (although the trade off is that motion sickness is worse). If only they came out with move controllers with a fudging d-pad, that'd really be awesome.

Also, the new version 2 VR is WAY better than the older version. If you're considering VR, I'd highly recommend the Skyrim bundle (or at least the Doom VFR if you don't like motion controls, but I'd highly recommend getting them anyway). Less cords (sort of), easier hookup, better headphone setup, and a power button that's actually on the unit itself (makes a huge difference, IMO). Lastly, I played on a PS4 Pro (if that matters), so although I'm sure it's similar, I can't attest to how the game would run on a slim or fat unit.

I get that. Obviously, moving your legs to move or something like that would be better, but for now, this is the best way to move within a game without a joystick or d-pad. I would love to see a better mix of directional buttons and motion controls though. That'd be pretty sweet. Games played with the DS4 ruin the immersive effect, and motion control movement (i.e. teleportation) is annoying compared to joy-stick movement. Maybe Sony will come out with new controllers that address this conundrum.

Wish I could enjoy it like lots of other people do. I think I'd prefer to think of VR as it currently is being unable to really "get you there" like we were picturing, so maybe DS4's the lesser of two evils. I don't like giving up that freedom of movement because standing in one place and looking around "feels right" with VR headsets as they are.

Why are companies releasing betas for console games? The eventual video game crash might start with this practice. Can't wait till this game gets more polished.

I still don't see the problem with loot boxes as long as they don't contain stuff you need to play the game or if they cost real money. If its just cosmetic stuff and you use in game currency then I don't see the big deal.

I don't know a lot about modern multiplayer games, but is there any game in existence that doesn't let you pay USD for lootboxes and is cosmetic only? I thought the whole point was to create a grindy, random environment that both keeps players playing and incentivizes them to spend cash to speed up their progression.

The 3 I can think of off the top of my head are Forza 7, Crimson Dragon, and I think Powerstar Golf. Forza 7 you get mods and outfits, CD you got power ups or "mods", and PSG you got new clubs and outfits and there were no options to pay real money for any loot boxes in any of those games. Most people think that EA created them with SWBF2 when infact they've been around for years, EA just took it to the extreme.

Super Mario 64 (Wii VC)

7/10

There can only be a few explanations for this...

A) The game has aged poorly. The camera is AWFUL. The controls aren't that great either. Some of the jumps you have to make are unfair in 3D. Finally, what the hell is with all of the bottomless levels where when you fall it's all over??? I know in some mario games there are pits, but this is too many.

B) It was overrated to begin with.

C) I suck at 3D games, but I'm plenty good at Zelda BOTW and Uncharted so I don't think that's the issue.

D) This game sucks on Wii VC using the Wii Pro Controller.

I'll go with B. I've never found Mario 64 to be particularly good.

Previous posts from me about Mario 64:
https://gametz.com/?A=ForumSearch&q=Mario%2064&par...

Reading my posts from 10 years ago, it's a little embarrassing how smug and combative I was. And maybe saying Mario 64 single handedly killed the platforming genre was a bit of hyperbole. I'll amend that to say it put the genre on life support, but it has since made a full recovery in recent years.

You pretty much hit the nail on the head with Mario 64 there. I am reallllly good at 2D Mario games. I'd say a notch below speed run territory, methinks. I run almost everywhere, make crazy jumps, and finish levels quickly on almost all 2D mario games. In 3D though? It's a major chore to get Mario to jump and land where you want him to. The fact that they added MORE jumping moves to a game where it's difficult to jump is just silly.

I might skip Mario 64 altogether and just go straight to Galaxy.

Fine, but it made me realize I really just want to have fun and play with a lightsaber.

Except for the bugs part, that was crap

The Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II games had some pretty solid saber play.

Kirby: Planet Robobot {Nintendo 3DS} 8/10

I always say how I'm not that big of a fan of the Kirby series, and yet I always friggin' play them. Maybe I've learned from Super Mario Odyssey that just because a game is easy doesn't mean it can't be fun. I'm enjoying this one, as I did Kirby: Triple Deluxe when I beat that earlier this year. 3DS just might have the best Kirby games.

Graphically this looks almost identical to Kirby: Triple Deluxe, and that isn't a bad thing because that game already looked good. Actually, the whole game in general feels a lot like Kirby: Triple Deluxe. I'm convinced that if you took out the robot gimmick they went for here, you'd be left with Kirby: Triple Deluxe 1.5 but I won't hold it against this game. There's some really good level design in here, and lots of new abilities in here that can be unlocked at any time by scanning certain amiibo.
The music is typical Kirby sounding. Not exactly bad, but it does nothing for me personally.

The highlight of the game for me was the ending. The final boss stage was epic. Definitely one of the best moments of any Kirby game I've played.

NICE!!! I just grabbed it. I have it on PS2 and Wii, and I'm fairly certain on PS3 downloaded too - never played it on any of those and probably never will.

But now that I have it on PS4, I might give it a whirl.

The intro was kinda slow, but it picked up.

oh yes for sure, the RPCS3 guys are probably still a year or two away from where they need to be but they have made incredible progress this last quarter, they've got games running that wouldn't load at all and have cleaned up several big issues, they had a huge breakthrough recently watch had a domino effect on solving several issues. ive already got the pc to do it, just waiting on those guys to get me to that sweet level of compatibility.

Tokyo Xanadu Ex PlayStation 4

8/10

Persona lite for those who enjoy building relationships in games. There is also a fun battle system. I recommend this for niche JRPG and Anime fans that like this kind of title. I personally think it is a blast. However, I don't think it is worth the 59.99 price tag for most consumers that aren't total fudging weebs. I make a lot of fudging money so I bought it. Wait for a price drop to at least 39.99 but it is worth it at that price. Very good end of the year game.

Fired up Shadow of War finally on my Sony PlayStation 4 Pro and I'm loving it so far. This is definitely a richer, deeper story driven experience along with a plethora of upgrades and move sets and I am digging it. From the first act alone I would give it a solid 8/10.

Idril is in the game? It would be nice to put a face to that character. One of my favorites from The Silmarilion's stories.

Until Dawn: Rush of Blood {PlayStation 4} (no PSVR icon?) 8/10
Wow this was intense. I wish it was longer, but while it lasts it is great. Before playing this I had only messed around with a couple of the PS VR demos, but I'm glad I chose this to be the first actual game I decided to play because it is going to take a lot to be able to top this. I already know this will be one of those memorable gaming experiences that stays with me forever, like when you meet Bowser for the first time in Super Mario 64.

The game is far from perfect (I've had a couple of moments where things are going smoothly and then out of nowhere the calibration gets messed up and my character is aiming the guns in every direction except where I'm actually pointing) and like I already said, I wish it was longer. There are only 7 stages and they last on average around 10-15 minutes each and the first level just feels like an extended tutorial so that barely counts.
When the game ended I was kind of confused and didn't feel like it was built up as good as it could have been. And also, this game feels like there was no need for them to have slapped the Until Dawn name on it. Until Dawn is a game I will remember as being one of the better story driven games I've played this console gen, while Until Dawn: Rush of Blood has almost no story worth mentioning, you're just playing it for the experience. It's a damned fun experience though. The audio is good, I definitely recommend using a headset or the headphones the VR comes with as the TV speakers don't do it much justice when you wanna hear which direction the enemies are coming from.

Game Boy Uno - fun but hard to see. Would be better on Super Gameboy 6.5/10
PlayStation 2 Real Bout Fatal Fury 2: The Newcomers. Very good game, but some characters are wankish overpowered. 8/10
PlayStation 2 NeoGeo Battle Coliseum. Same as above, less wank. Plays better. 8.5/10
PlayStation 2 Fire Pro Wrestling Returns. Amazing, deep and fun. Great animations. 9/10
PlayStation Portable Castlevania: Rondo of Blood. The original version found in the new version. Excellent in every regard. 9.5/10
Sega Dreamcast Sword of the Berserk: Gut's Rage. Bad idea to have the weapon bang into walls. Decent if you like the anime. Late levels ruin it with tight quarters and stupid weapon impact. 4/10.
Super Nintendo Alien 3. Good, but suffers from dumb enemies and wankish level design in the final 2 levels. Better than the other versions. 7/10

Each world only continues to get better too. I hope they do a sequel because at this point I would pre order without knowing anything about it.
