Currently on the ole' docket:
-Yakuza Kiwami
-Slay the Spire


1. Red Dead Redemption 2 - 1/1/2019 - 40 something hours? Idk lol
Score: 5/5
so yeah I obviously chunked away at this mostly in 2018, but I finally finished it on my final day of vacation lol. anyway, this game has a fucking incredible narrative imo. some of the character building a plot development is some of the best i've ever experienced. it's probably the single best prequel, narrative wise , i've ever seen too. that said, the game has some really weird/dumb gameplay issues that it really shouldn't have. the first like 10-15 hours are a total slog. open world rockstar games still control and feel like dogshit, and this one adds shit tons of button holding on top of it. but i found the story so fuckin' sweet that i can overlook all the large pile of minor grievances i have with the rest of the game so fuck it.

2. Astro Bot: Rescue Mission - 1/9/2019 - 8 hours or so
Score: 5/5
okay first off this game is fucking ADORABLE. but it's also really fucking fun. at the end of the day it's just a platformer, but it does a bunch of really cool and unique-to-VR shit that just constantly keeps you smiling like "damn that's clever". the boss fights were also all really fun to play. this is a must play if you have a PS VR for sure. my only complaint is the soundtrack could have used a couple more songs. by the end of the game you've heard the same song reused like three (or more?) times. it didnt matter too much because the songs included were friggin sweet tho.

3. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - 1/13/2019 - 30 somethin' hours
Score: 5/5
by 'beat' i mean i unlocked every character and also beat world of light. beat classic mode a handful of times too but whatever. anyway, this is probably my favorite smash ever, and rightly so because EVERYONE IS HERE. there's much god damn content in this game i really don't know how sakurai has maintained any of his sanity. i look forward to smashing for many days and years to come. also the belmonts fucking RULE.

4. Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice - 1/22/2019 - Like 7 hours
Score: 4/5
man, i'm v torn on this one. Hellblade is a very very good storytelling experience, but a kind of an abysmal game. at no point did i really enjoy playing it, but i also was completely mesmerized by the narrative and its presentation the entire journey. idk. at its core Hellblade is a walk-down-a-pretty-hallway kinda game. the main 'gameplay' consists of perspective puzzles where you try to find something in the environment to open a door or path. there's a few instances of this being neat, but after the 20th time of trying to find a pile of sticks that look like a rune, it gets pretty old. there's also combat, that is so close to being fun, but the camera is so damn tight to senua that you can't see fucking anything, and it ends up being the only difficulty in combat time and time again. I guess it kind of makes sense though, as it makes you feel hella claustrophobic which is in line with the feeling of the rest of the game, but it's just not fun to play. i would definitely be interested in giving this game another go in VR though, i feel like that would make me care a bit less about its flaws.

5. Katamari Damacy Reroll - 2/8/2019 - Like 3 or 4 hours
Score: 4/5
i forgot how short this game is lol. it's still katamari damacy. i also forgot how fucking janky the first game is. you're constantly getting stuck, even looking at a dangerous surface/object causes shit to go flying off your katamari, you can't jump at all, and there's like 1.5 levels lol. its kind of weird they ported JUST the original game as-is instead of porting katamari forever, or doing like a compilation with we love katamari, or updating mechanics or anything. idk. game's still fun, but it's also very much a game that was made 15 years ago lol

6. Resident Evil 2 (2019) - 2/20/2019 - Like 16 hours
Score: 5/5
damn what a good ass game. i've never actually 100% beaten this game but I'm glad I finally have. capcom was super faithful to the original but also kept it scary as heck. it's basically everything you would want out of a remake. only complaints was it was kind of weirdly too campy at some points, and mr. x, while still terrifying as shit, becomes kind of annoying after a while.

7. Apex Legends - 2/24/2019 - Like 15+ hours or some shit
Score: 5/5
okay you're probably like 'wtf how do you beat apex, a multiplayer game with no plot'. well one fuck you and two i finally won my first match after hours and hours of playing, so i'm counting it i don't give a fuck. this is the most fun i've had with any battle royale; i'll deff be playing this for months to come and am super excited to follow the development of the game. the movement is really nice, even with the loss of wallrunning, the gunplay is really good, and the world is really well built and there's so many nooks to uncover. anyway, play this shit with me family

8. Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes - 3/1/2019 - 10 hours
Score: 3/5
man this one was tough. I really enjoyed the narrative, the humor, and the general themes of the game. I think TheGamingBritShow video on the game really helps contextualize a lot of stuff in this game. That said, man actually playing the game is a fucking slog. the combat is extremely basic, special skills all have extremely long cooldowns which make them feel kind of lame, and a few of the sub games were just plain bad or frustrating. also the game is buggy as fuck, and i had multiple glitches that made me have to replay about an hour total of the game. Anyway, I'd say it's a decent experience IF you are a fan of suda51/grasshopper, however if you aren't then don't bother. the game featurues a ton of suda IPs beyond just no more heroes, and is more or less a statement on suda's career thus far.

9. Katana ZERO - 4/24/2019 - 4-ish hours
Score: 4/5
my friend got me to buy this on the promise of Hotline Miami levels of ultraviolence, and the game does not disappoint there. this game i really enjoyable, and has some really tight, interesting game-play mechanics, and a pretty interesting story. that said, most of the game was relatively easy or cheese-able, and towards the end when they do up the anty a lot of times it just feels like they're throwing thousands of dudes at you just because instead of making an actual difficult and well thought out level. also it's super short at only about 4 hours, with maybe half of that being actual game time. the story also is kind of annoyingly pretentious at times, and some of the depictions of violent acts are a bit much for my taste, but OVERALL its a very solid indie title. i hope they have a sequel in the works cuz it could use one.

10. Devil May Cry 5 - 5/11/2019 - 14  hours??
Score: 5/5
so i had to bite my teeth to not dock this shit a point for fucking WIPING MY GOD DAMN SAVE. i basically cheated and had to replay through 85% of the entire fucking game, as that was the only option, but with 1 hit kills and skipping every cutscene it only took me about 2 hours thank giod. though i also made my upgrades OP as shit cuz I couldn't remember what I had spent at that point. oh well. anyway! this game is fucking sick. dante is cool as hell. nero isnt a whiny little bitch anymore and is maybe even sweeter than dante now??? v was fine too i guess. this game is so dense with moves and combos and shit its hard to wrap one's head around everything you're capable of. levels were kind of samey and hallway-ey, which is probs my biggest complaint, but that's not really important for a game like this. it's all about the action baby, which there was plenty of!!!

11. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - 5/24/2019 - 17 hours or somethin
Score: 4/5
yeah the friggin' DS game, except I played this on the recently re-released, remastered trilogy edition on the Switch. So I actually got to the last case on this shit on the DS back in the day, but the DS shit annoyed me and so I dropped it. annnnd in 2019? it's p good. I'll be honest, there's a lot of shit that annoys me about this game and I'm hesitant to continue with the other two. For one, I fucking hate the investigation parts of these games. They're too long, too boring, and usually you just sit there poking shit or showing every person you can talk to everything you have in your possession to advance the story. Now i freakin LOVE the court room stuff, BUT i wish i wasn't so binary. it's either you present the right shit at the right time, or fuck you I DONT KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKIN ABOUT PHOENIX!! also the plot: so many people leave out ridiculous, pertinent information for basically no fucking reason until the very last second after you basically dig it out of their assholes, especially in Turnabout Goodbyes. Regardless, you feel like a cool dude in court, and the characters for the most part are super fun, so fuck it this game still gets a pass.

12. Dark Souls: Remastered - 6/7/2019 - 40 hours n change
Score: 5/5
i've been choppin' away at this one for quite some months (hell, longer if u cant failed attempts at other versions of this game), but i FINALLY fucking beat the OG dork souls. what an incredible game. everything about this game, while tuff titties sometimes, just felt so so good. even when i was getting my shit kicked in, i loved almost every minute of this game. well, almost, except for the final bits of the game where some stuff just felt lazy, or bs, or just like lazy bs. like tomb of giants? that was some dumb bullshit. lost izalith and the bed of chaos? duummmmmbbbb. that said, even though they were weaker parts it didn't really detract from the quality of the game as a whole. guess i gotta play 2 & 3 now baby!!

13. Cadence of Hyrule - 6/18/2019 - 5 hours or so
Score: 5/5
holy shit this game is fucking DOPE. it's like a rhythm based, randomized, spiritual succesor to a link to the past. it takes a little bit to get used to the game (especially if you havent played crypt of the necrodancer like myself), but once it gets going this shit is so much fun. and holy FUCK the soundtrack is fucking stellar. this shit is seriously one of the best things on switch. and it also offers so many gameplay options and is super replayable.



Ok so I got 1301/1302 spirits in Smash (all that you can get w/o buying Let's Go Pikachu) and completed Classic with all characters, so I'm counting that as done. There are still ~20 challenges left, but I'm not good enough to complete them, so eh.

Great game.

i mean i counted mine in the 2018 thread simply when finishing the story mode

as far as i'm concerned, in a fighting game, you've "finished" it when you finish the story


my personal rule for these threads has been a game is done when you feel like it is done in your heart of hearts goodjob;
