This would normally be similar to Overwatch that the games doesn't have a end but this year FIFA has The Journey which I thought was a neat idea but I can only play as so many games of football at Newcastle and Bournemouth, with like another 20+ games to go, I've had enough and I can see why finishing its trophy is rare very rare as its like 20hrs long for something that feels due to the story side of things should be more like 5hrs.

So I traded it in today and added to the now £260 Switch fund, I think if you want a football game even though Journey is a neat idea, is you buy PES USED.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe



Not because it's bad, but because you never truly finish this.  Having seen Drunka's success rate, my 'Gold Mario and Gold Kart and I'm happy' status looks pathetic in comparison.

It's a belter though, isn't it.  Take the best Mario Kart in ages, with two glaring flaws: dubious character roster and tripe battle mode.  Fix the flaws.  Result: almost perfect game.

Although... if I'm being awfully picky, I can find other, tiny, flaws.  MK8D will soon have a paid-for online, and we don't know what we're getting for that money beyond the obvious.  No paid-for online in the original MK8.  And as it's a port of a last-gen. game, it still feels just a teeeeeeensy bit cheeky that we didn't get any new tracks.  We got all the DLC tracks, so you can't complain too much, but still.

It is brilliant through.  I don't want to give a port of a three-year-old(?) game a perfect score, but it's near as damn it.

I've had a rough time of it online the last two days so I'm hopeful we'll see some dedicated servers that'll sort those connection issues out one the subscription commences.

That's my only gripe. Would liked to have seen some new trace tracks but I'll their money at any new dlc for this game should they continue supporting it

You've reminded me, Muss: another eighth of a percent off for not being able to connect more than 6 Switches together without the game throwing a Patrick. DAMN YOU!

(Erm, am I allowed to say that? Admins.?)

I didn't realise you were being a disgusting racialist, I thought you were referencing the fact we all blamed you and your name is Patrick Kielty Laughing Laughing

For reference: the phrase does have its origin in Irish stereotypes BUT under UK law, insulting the Welsh, Scottish or Northern Irish is not considered a hate crime. They are "regional" and not national or racial divides.

Dream

I first played this as EGX Rezzed 20...14...(? I think?) with a VR headset, which was the deciding factor of VR being for vomit induction. However, they gave out a card with a big discount on, so I thought I'd buy it and play it at some stage just in regular old 2D mode. The idea itself is a good'n - you explore several dream worlds in first person, solving puzzles - a bit like a less up-itself Myst. The level I tried at the show was an M C Escher style staircase temple - it looped vertically, which is a neat trick in 3D. However, the game never really got a "this is the live version" release, and, considering how far along some of the environments and audio-visual bits are (essentially those are "signed off") there are some horribly basic bugs in it. And the company has gone into Administration, so it's not getting fixed.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe



The credits have rolled on this but I'm happy to keep playing it for a long time to come, so the review goes here! I have struggled to get behind any Mario Kart since Super Mario Kart (I'm old) and knowing everything about this game before it came out lowered my expectations dramatically. And, as mentioned elsewhere on this fine forum, I was blown away. It is so much fun, so much more than I thought it was going to be, it's incredible. I am missing having to unlock everything, though, and playing more online games might get in the way of completing other stuff... but when the faults of a game are "I was given everything I needed to fully enjoy the game from the beginning" and "I want to play it loads more", you're doing alright.

I don't know why you're all putting Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in this thread Grin

Right, this is overdue.



THUMPER

I like a challenge in my video games. It's why I enjoyed games like Dark Souls or Super Meat Boy. The difference between those games and THUMPER is that when I died in those games it never really felt unfair. The game gives you tight controls and great level design to work with and if you mess up, that's on you. THUMPER has felt increasingly unfair in its later levels due to a blend of iffy controls and the music context clues of upcoming hazards gelling into one another resulting in a speedy death.

The first few levels of this game were great, though. There wasn't any prolonged wait for a checkpoint like in later levels and there was a real rush from hurtling through a level. It felt rewarding not only to clear a level but to ace it. Later levels became a fight for survival where I had to hold down the right trigger and focus solely on the turns. It felt unsatisfying and most importantly for the reason I've stopped playing this, it didn't feel fun anymore. It was just frustrating.

So on that note, I've packed this in. I don't regret my purchase per se, but I'm not entirely happy with it either.

What Jay said, only I gave up earlier on. The aesthetic is trippy but not really my thing - being punished over and over again definitely isn't.

I've given up on this one. Have been genuinely addicted over the past few weeks and rattled through a season of it with my created golfer.

Now, this game hasn't had good reviews but that's largely because it shipped with a bunch of stuff missing (that has now been added), but also came after a Tiger Woods game that was jam-packed with modes and courses. As a golf game, it's very good, but the putting can be incredibly frustrating (particularly on the US Open course). It will have a dotted line to help you, but it "reads the putt" before displaying the line, sometimes simply saying "putt read failed" and leaving it up to you to work out the putt. I guess it's the little things that stop this from being a great golf game: the simplistic Create-A-Golfer mode that makes N64 wrestling games look like alien technology, excessive commentary and god-damn reactions from your golfer after EVERY shot that you have to hammer at X to skip.

There's a good "NightClub Challenge" mode that is a lot like Mario Golf. You can activate wacky boosts or sticky balls for instance, and there's ring challenges too. There looks to be hundreds of these challenges.

So, while I really liked my time with Rory McIlroy, it's a bit rough around the edges. Given it was three quid something in the PSN sale, it was great value and I do recommend it if you have a PS4 and see it cheap, but I'm still of the belief that Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour remains the most fun golf game around.

7/10

You're kidding me! It's got an assist mode that sometimes can't assist you? I play FIFA at least once a week, but it still surprises me, with their multi-million selling sports franchises, some of the things EA will ship as a finished feature and NEVER fix. A previous highlight: FIFA 2004 displaying 10 players at once on the squad screen, meaning you had to scroll down to see part of your starting XI.
