    Resident Evil: Revelations (NS)

    A couple of janky control issues aside, this is a really fine Resident Evil game. My first play through of this was on the 3DS, and I must say that the experience is improved on the TV. It's much easier to explore and aim.

    8.5/10.

    Thanks to Kark (again) for sharing her thoughts on the series with me and helping me decide whether to give the franchise another go.

    Good fun, but those rotating towers in Hades and the fight with Area can suck a big ol' fat one.

    Agreed 100%. The balance beam segment where you have to jump over spinning spikes is a close second for me.

    Resident Evil: Revelations 2 (NS)

    A weird game to score... I was left miffed by most of it, especially by perhaps the worst character in the history of Resident Evil in Moira.

    It's stuck between wanting to be two different kinds of game. On the one hand, there's lots of Resident Evil fan service. On the other hand, the game is taking its stylistic points from mid 00's horror films like "Saw" instead of the classic Resident Evil influences.

    It's a much more horror oriented experience than the first Revelations game, which is fine and well, but the game suffers from inconsistent execution.

    Overall, I think it was decent, but not anything to write home about.

    7/10.

    Xenoblade Chronicles 2 - NS

    Definitely the lesser of the three Xeno games, still great overall, just with a couple of things souring the experience ever so slightly. If Xenoblade is a 10/10, and Xenoblade X is a 9.5, then this would still be a 9.

    Was sick today so spent most of my time playing through the rest of this. A lot better than 1.

    Also that ending. Kinda sad I didn't get into these in high school, can't imagine how I'd feel if I played this when it first came out.

    Grand Prix mode on a much higher difficulty. Such a great feeling when I downed the final challenger!

    9.5/10

    Metroid: Samus Returns (3DS)

    The name says it all. A triumphant return for everyone's favorite Space Warrior.

    A+ in every department. The atmosphere and exploration are absolutely incredible in this game. The best use of 3D I've ever seen to boot.

    It also has two of my favorite boss fights ever in it.

    10/10.

    Kingdom Hearts 2 (PS4)

    It may be weird, it may be flat out embarrassing at points, and it may have an overarching plot like makes Metal Gear look like Mario, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't love it. Except for a couple of boss fights, fuck those boss fights.

    Doom (NS)

    7/10 - Would have rated it higher but the bug that kept me from upgrading anything for the last half of the game was annoying.

    Aww man, that's a bummer. :msad:

    (This is sort of the dark half of modern game development. That type of bug is fixable, sure. But how many people will have already played and beat a game by then?)

    Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 (3DS)

    For what it is, it's great. The technical limitations of the original Gameboy are interesting to me as someone who didn't own one growing up.

    8/10.

    Well, I'm not "done" with Pokemon Crystal (3DS) (still need to grab Celebi, do some living dex stuff, etc) but for now I'm gonna list it as complete.

    Floor Kids (NS)

    Neat little rhythm game, very different but fun with some good beats. I prefer my rhythm games to have stricter rules, however. The game is also pretty short, and "100 %ing" it by reaching max stars in all the songs doesnt quite extend that enough. The multiplayer mode is actually pretty good and it feels natural. If the single player had some kinda boss structure where you challenged an experienced breakdancer to a stomp-off every few songs, that would be cool. Instead its got some weird poetry and visuals in between each stage, I kinda dig that too though.
    Cool game, but short, 7.5/10

    Hitman 2: Silent Assassin (PC)

    So weird. One mission is really easy and obvious, the next mission people are seeing through your disguise and opening fire on you without a second thought. First few missions made me want to not play, but it eventually got good, then terrible, then good again, then it ended with an objective "kill everyone" - good ol' Silent Assassin-ing right there...

    It's no Blood Money or 2016 Season 1.

    Blood Money is largely considered the peak of the franchise, and even the new entry out now appears to be going back to what made Hitman good. #MakeHitmanGreatAgain

    God of War 3 (PS4)

    It's amazing how fast you can beat a game when winter got you down.

    Pretty good stuff, think I like 2 more though. I have no idea how we're suppose to take Dad of War seriously after the shit he's pulled in 3, and not only in regards to killing all those Gods. One part has you sidling across a ledge and there is a civilian there. Instead of pushing him away, you slam his head into the brick wall THEN push him off. I love it, it's ridiculous and all that, but right now I'd have an easier time if DOOM had a sequel that focused on Doom Slayer as a character.

    Still, good fucking action and those titan set pieces are still cool as hell.

    Just. Fucking. Sublime. Wonderful story, beautifully presented, beautiful visuals, incredible music. But the main draw is obviously the immaculate gameplay. Holy shit, what a game. Instant 10/10 within 5 minutes of first booting it up, and then it just kept getting better and better and better. God damn.

    I finished Horizon: Zero Dawn (PS4) tonight. Really fun game, although I missed out on most of the side quests because I just really, really didn't wanna bother going out of my way to get to them.

    Did the Frozen Wilds DLC as well since I'd already bought it on sale. Fit fairly organically into the game itself, I felt.

    Good stuff but I'm gonna wait awhile before finishing with Ascension. I can only press "square square triangle" so many times.
