What Are You Playing? (May 2023)

I've played the first Turok on N64 back when it was released and thought it was difficult & frustrating, that I never played another Turok until know.

Fuck, this game was also frustrating. Bullshit flying levels that I kept dying over and over and over. Too long in between checkpoints, that since they throw at you too many enemies and difficulty lead to a lot of quick deaths.

Here's what I have on order:



As for what I'll be playing until then, maybe I'll start The Quarry or Goat Simulator 3. I'd like to get in at least a little more Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe at some point too, but I'm playing that couch co-op with a Hogwart's Legacy obsessive, so we'll see if time permits.

Re: What Are You Playing? (May 2023)

Was jumping around to different games but I finally sticking with this one



Gave up on it. Just not having fun with it mainly the repetitive nature of the game.


Just started and having a blast.


Tears hype had me coming back to this. Had it on Wii U. Had to start over as it doesnt havr a save transfer to the switch. So far 5 hours in falling in love again. At my pace ill be finished with this by the end of tbe year

Frustrating 3PS gameplay. No checkpoints, having to restart level after dying over & over. Stopped playing.

it’s a good game, but so hard and repetitive. I was loving it, but to figure when to kill and what skill to use got so frustrating. I got far and probably just need to kill in proper order one last time and I’d be done, but I don’t know if I want to go back at this point.

Yeah if I get frustrated I'll youtube the section. Not the whole level but just enough to point me in the right direction.

Good game. Controls almost perfect. Way less frustrating than previous Bonds. In between level checkpoints and 3 continues help, but should unlimited. Had fun with it.

Re: What Are You Playing? (May 2023)

My Friend Pedro - Wasn't expecting to play through this one at all, but since it's leaving Game Pass imminently I thought I could play it for a bit to get a couple easy achievements. I did that, and then I plowed through the entire game. Way more fun than I expected and finished it in probably 3-4 hours, if that. Good music, satisfying run & gun mechanics with very satisfying kill shots... only thing I don't like is the ranking system for each level since there's only a handful where I felt like S-tier was actually achievable. Finished the game up and only have 4 achievements remaining, none of which I care to get.

Ravenlok - very much a kid-friendly Action RPG, but I dig it. The style is great and I love the music. Hell, even my daughter might actually play through this after dumping Minecraft Legends after an hour. But, I'm playing this and it's easy, but fun/cute/mindless-in-a-good-way.

I recommend both, easily, for killing time.

edit: finished Ravenlok last night. Fun little game. Definitely on the easy side, and you can get over powered quite early, but there were still a couple parts where the puzzle solutions were a little bit sillier than I was expecting.
I’m happy to play more of these kinds of games though. Quite a good effort for such a small team.

Redfall - well, going to give it a few more hours at least, but hesitating until a proper patch comes out.

I just started City Shrouded in Shadow. It's entirely in Japanese, which I have more or less zero knowledge of, so I'm relying on the translation lens thingie in the Google app.

Basically, you're a bystander caught in the middle of a whole bunch of giant monster/robot battles, and they licensed Ultraman, Patlabor, Godzilla, Gamera, and Evangelion as part of this, with every stage themed around a different character. Ridiculous by design and very simplistic, but I just couldn't resist all those different properties being mashed together like this.

Great game. Still in between checkpoints, but now unlimited tries. So hardly any frustration. My favorite Bond from the 5 I've played so far.




On to EVERYTHING OR NOTHING.

Good game, that could of been great if it wasn't for the shitty targeting. Many health drains cause the reticle wouldn't register on an enemy so I was nonstop shot at.

Re: What Are You Playing? (May 2023)

First time playing this (unlike the previous six 007 games)
Okay game. Like the use of James Bond characters. Pretty basic FPS mechanics. The aiming was hard cause of the small reticle. Only 8 stages but each has like 4 chapters, which flowed together. At least this time game has not only checkpoints (but are not notified) and also has mid level saves, so U can always come back where left off and not have to start from beginning of chapter like previous games. The last level was bullshit cause of certain enemies having Omen RX gun which is fucking bullshit one shot death, especially when it comes outta nowhere. Died the most compared to the rest of game.


up next. FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE

My new favorite Bond game so far. Has the perfect targeting controls that Everything or Nothing wished it coulda had. Game was hardly frustrating at all compared to previous. Being the first Bond game to be able to upgrade weapons and gadgets made the game fun and easier to play . Also had enjoyable driving levels compared to previous which sometimes bullshit frustrating.

Played about 4 hours of Tchia and dropped it. I'm a connoisseur of indie games and had high hopes for this especially after the positive reviews but everything gameplay related is below average. If you are going to have an open world collectathon it has to be fun to control and move around the world but this was so uninteresting. Now moving on to Star Wars Jedi Survivor (PS5)
