Poor horse. Gone but never ever forgotten.

SoD2 came out Tuesday, EofGiz was done with it that evening and me Wednesday afternoon. Now SoD2 is a budget title and I played via Game Pass but it is buggy as all hell and feels old plus the gameplay loop is just so boring.

It's basically drive the car to get wood, drive back, go out and find fuel, build something with the wood like an infirmary, go find medical supplies, go get fuel and so on.

That's it, and it's fine playing CO-OP as you're going around with mates killing zeds but single player it's just a bad version of the sims wrapped up an in a 3rd person survival shooter thing.

I can see why I've seen 4/10's etc for it that I honestly reckon you should only play it with mates and then you only help one world or to get some achievements without having the likes of Hannah Montana on your profile.

This is part the game's fault, and part mine. It's true that I thought the game had auto-saved when it hadn't, re-started to find a chunk of my progress wiped, and was put off by that. However, this was partly due to the unclear nature of the things the game throws at you first up, and thinking, 'Surely I must have found a save point by now?' It's also true that I found the main character slow, especially her branch-removing strong attack, and that I was sick of wading through mud long before I put the game down. I didn't even find the game's much-lauded art style much to my tastes, but it's more the pacing and my foolishness that killed this for me.

One to upset Andy


Unlike Metroid Prime for theBook Club (Yakuza) which I could see a good game underneath the controls and would have played more if it handled better.

Where Yakuza I just found laborious and really couldn't be bothered with and since sold 0 & Kiwami as could not see me going back.

I do have a video review up but this isn't a game you can really finish that it would also go here, however, going through my backlog thanks to Drunka, I just can't see me going back to this I just prefer playing it on a PC as I didn't like playing it on a TV as I like to play it whilst watching something else and I find the Switch screen to small to read things and to select things be it with cursor or touch also hard to see and do.

It's also overpriced being double the iPad version which has more content and has no retail version to justify the Switch Tax either.

It's a completely unrelated double-bill!

Get Lost Sphere to Falkirk by all means, but if it's anything like the PSP ones, Lumines deserves more than five minutes. Five minutes is almost pointless with a game like that.

Unfortunately at the moment I've got so many games to try and get through before the next big one arrives that five minutes is all I'm willing to give a game that looks so utterly not my thing. So kudos to you for sticking with XC2 for as long as you did, I suppose. (Also it was probably slightly longer than that, to be fair.)

I'm not saying I won't go back to it ever, I suppose; but it's fallen behind Hollow Knight, Yoku, Golf Story, probably Yooka-Laylee, and anything else that takes my fancy in the meantime. It probably doesn't help that the last game I got properly into (which did grab me from the word go) was also a puzzler.

You don't deserve Meteos on Switch now.

Only liking puzzle games where you are head to head against an opponent baffles me

I didn't know if was possible to not like Tetris!

To be fair Tetris is better when it's head to head anyway.

Nah Tetris is best when it's 3am and you're lying awake petrified by the idea that death is the end, and the only way you can find escape from the realisation of existential finality is in the all consuming arranging of falling blocks.

I'm sure I'd get on with some of Tetris' bonus modes, but I find the chasing high scores for the sake of chasing high scores excruciatingly dull. 🤷

Stop recording my nighttime routine, thanks.
