Horizon Zero Dawn.What an incredible game, definitely surprised me, the impressive graphics, excellent story, soundtrack, etc. I’ve spent so many hours playing this game. I even liked it a lot better than The Witcher 3. The main, secondary missions, getting lost exploring this world was a pleasure.
I loved it.

I also just beat this game not that long ago I love love love the second half but the first half of horizon zero Dawn was kind of slow and meh. I never did connect with all the different tribes and their politics. I was always way more interested in the past with silence

I recently bought a Switch. It’s a great piece of hardware, the play it on the TV and pull it out the dock to switch to handheld mode thing is smooth and fantastic.

So I finished

Captain Toad Treasure Tracker

Cute as hell puzzle game. You control Toad or Todette in a cube based level where you have to traverse through it to reach the star.

You have limited movement in the character, no jump or attack buttons, certain items can be pulled out of the group to collect coins or turnips that can be thrown at enemies. Sometimes you can manipulate the level with the touchscreen to move platforms etc.

There are three chapters to complete the game, which opens up some Super Mario Odyssey based levels.

It’s a lot of fun

Ready for Adventure

4/5

 

     

An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.

Congrats on getting a Switch! Best way piece of hardware in a long time.
Besides the obvious games (Zelda, Mario,etc) do look into Octopath Traveler if you like JRPGs, great game.
Toad is a lot of fun but I had played it before on the WiiU.

I got the two obvious games (Mario,Zelda) already so next up (on the switch anyway) is probably Mario Odyssey.

They are without much doubt the 2 best games in the system, Zelda revolutionizes the series and is an awesome open-world exploration game and Mario is just lot of fun with new hat gameplay and different levels.

Other games you might look into after are Mario+Rabbids, a surprisingly fun and deep SRPG like XCOM and Bayonetta 1+2 if you have not played it before.
Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart are fun multiplayer games, Xenoblade 2 if you are into the series, personally I’m enjoying more Octopath. Mario Tennis and Arms are kind of average in my opinion.
The 3rd party ports are competent (Skyrim, Doom, Wolfenstein, LA Noire) but not the best version, good if you want to play on the go. Indie selection is very good. Hollow Knight is amazing.

The last game I played through was Tim Schafer’s Broken Age, which I was excited to see on the Nintendo Switch! (The presence of great adventure games, which started for me with Thimbleweed Park, has been the greatest unexpected joy of the console—really looking forward to Grim Fandango’s release for the Switch!). I would give Broken Age at least an 8 out of 10. I truly thought it was a great adventure game with a really unique story. Prior to that, I played through all of the Banner Saga games once they arrived on Switch, and I adored them. At least a 9 out of 10 for each of them.

Right now I am playing Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers for the first time. I love it so far, but of course I know it is a classic! Ha.

beat all uncharted games 1-5. Just beat lost legacy, it was a fun game but its a tale of two halves. I thought the first half was dull and boring and I hated chapter 4, I dont think uncharted works at all as an open world game, but the 2nd half basically chapters 7-11 was awesome.mild spoilerI was not a fan of sam drake in 4 but I love him here in lost legacy, and I wish he was in the game more. He made Nadine a lot more likable
my rankings
5. uncharted 1
4. uncharted lost legacy
3. uncharted 4
2. uncharted 2
1. uncharted 3

I enjoyed Still life and had the sequel in the backlog for a long time now. Finally decided to cross it off and… what can I say.. It’s a mess.

Still Life 2 - 4/10

     

Nobody knows what is gonna happen at the end of the line, so you might as well enjoy the trip.

Finished Shadow of the Tomb Raider

An enjoyable and fitting ending to the reboot Trilogy.

Doesn’t do much different from the last instalment, but it’s a fun formula.

Interesting to see what they do next.

4/5

Yes, the same thing happened to me, I was much more interested in exploring and unraveling all the secrets of the past, both her personal and the place. What happened in this place? Who is she? How did these robots appear here?  What place and importance does she have?, etc.

Still Life 2 - 4/10

I never understood how they could ruin a game like Still Life, the first one is great, but the second one is terrible in all aspects, not only in the story that is uninspired and uninteresting, but also with the gameplay and the graphics. How does a game that looked very, very good in its second part look much worse?  The graphics are supposed to improve or at least stay the same, but look much worse? I don’t understand.  A lamentable involution.


Bloodborne (PS4) I’ve never played a Dark Souls game before, so this was my introduction to this universe, even though (as far as I understand) it’s not a dark souls but it has and shares the same game spirit. What can I say? It took me by surprise, simply magnificent and extremely addictive.

I had never been killed so many times in one game xp… but it was a pleasant frustration, I enjoyed every minute.  Now I’m going for its DLC.

If they do next Frown It is already on sale on PSN and the XBOX store although the game is barely a month old, so I am thinking it sold terribly.

I also finished it, and really loved it although it is too similar to the 2nd one. I like how they concentrated on what makes Tomb Raider great, and that is the fun traversal and the tomb raiding puzzles versus the emphasis on shooting in the first 2 games(especially in Rise).

The problem with the Tombraider games is they drop in value quickly.

I bought the last one for 25 dollars and really onjoyed it. I just don’t see a reason to buy this one at full price.

I enjoy playing adventure games on handheld systems- PS VITA, Nintendo DS and ipad mini.

Problem is, if everybody thinks this way, there won’t be TR games in the future to pay $25 for.

You’re missing the point. Problem is not paying full price for a game. It’s that the pricedrop came too soon.
