Medal of Honor (2010):
Awful. Mindless AI that follow the same line and stop on the same spot. Bro dude war-is-cool corny dialogue. Couple attempts at “cinematic” moments/situations that I could appreciate and barely made it feel like it deserved the name of MoH. But overall not worth considering part of the series. Glad they called it quits if this is the way it was going to go.
Puzzles. Short. Minimalist. Always love em.
Tetris Effect Connected;
Played through the “Journey” mode in VR via my 1$ Game Pass for PC trial. Pretty darn rad. Will definitively actually buy this on PC or PS5 down the road whenever I decide which direction I go with my next VR setup.
The Light Remake
Post nuclear war walkin’ sim from a small Russian team. I played their game 35mm before as a freebie so decided to try this one. Their stuff is always rough but good style. They always get that gloomy “The Road” vibe down.
Golf Club Wasteland
Gameplay felt horrible. Like a run down Angry Birds or something. But this is a group of amazing artists. The vibe they got out of the game is great. I wouldn’t recommend it really, but I also wishlisted their next game. So
Original GameBoy game. Played it on my “Chinaboy” (Miyoo Mini). Had played puzzle games prior that use nonogram ideas, but never knew they were a thing. It was a fun game to play on the shitter or standing in a line or whatever. 25~30 hours of puzzles. Can’t complain there!
Detroit: Become Human
Played through this on PS5. Quantic Dream have really come a long way since Heavy Rain (which I cult loved at the time). I had great fun role playing each of the three characters how I wanted. Sure there are some railroaded moments, but the branches from scene to scene and overall endings was pretty darn good. I had great fun. I’m from Michigan and they did a good job of making it look like Detroit, so that was a nice little touch.
Spongebob Squarepants - Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated
Was on PS+. I played the original but didn’t remember a ton. But it looks and plays good. My first ever platinum trophy. Had to unlock everything so my tiny nephew can just jump around to whatever level they feel like dying on 1000 times when he’s over here.
Agatha Christie - The ABC Murders
Good detective ideas, clunky point n clicking.
