    It's a re-imagining where the originals are still canon & the episodes are set in between them. Artwork is great & the voice work is superb. They even got Christopher Lloyd to voice old man King Graham. :)

    Yooka Laylee and the Impossible Lair. I like it quite a bit. That said, I've also played Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, and compared to that highly polished and explosive gem, Yooka Laylee feels a bit like a paired-back facsimile someone made while dealing with the limitations of a level editor you'd find in a game like Little Big Planet. Everything is just that little bit less animated, responsive, smooth, creative and cohesive.

    I just beat the little campaign in Dreams and I must say it's beautiful! It looked flat out CGI so many times.

    Finally finished the Witcher 3 Blood&Wine add-on on Switch. (I stopped midway through on the PS4 for some reason) Oh my, what a phenomenal piece of gaming goodness. I actually prefered this over the main game. Loved the story, loved the setting, loved the characters, loved the more concise nature of the whole thing (still a bloody long campain actually), loved the Return-of-the-King-esque ending that went on and on, albeit in a good way. Holy hell, what a send-off. The final hours were just off-the-charts; So unexpected and brimming with creativity.

    You're talking about something else then. I remember doing that quest on the PS4 years ago though. Must've missed it this time around.

    Ok, it's no use... At first I thought this game was magical, but now I think the stupid difficulty (which sometimes is worse "thanks" to an awful camera) has totally ruined the experience for me.

    On Proud I reached the last world but I wasn't able to get past a ridiculously difficult round of foes just before the final area/boss fight. So, I stopped playing for a while and I even thought of calling it quits. I know, I shouldn't have played on Proud, I only wanted the game to be challenging because sometimes Normal difficulty is way too easy, but I didn't know this game.

    A few weeks later I said to myself "ok, let's try the easiest difficulty level, because at least I want to beat the game". So I created a fucking new game because difficulty levels can't change once you start playing, and I played all the damn thing again until yes, getting at last to the final boss. But I can't beat him after a few attempts. It's not I'm not good at videogames, but I'm sorry, I can't and won't spend more time than necessary to just enjoy a game and to feel the satisfaction to beat it. I have more things to do (including other games I want to play as well).

    animal crossing new horizons is fucking WEIRD. pardon the language. BUT IT IS FUCKING WEIRD

    its full of the trope of generic, annoying things in MMO
    1. stupid quests
    2. stupid bounties
    3. repetitive gameplay repeated ad nauseum

    but playing it give me zen.

    WHAT THE FUCK IS HAPPENING

    EDIT:
    would be perfect if it only requires one joycon. So i can play while
    - brushing teeth
    - cooking
    - wiping my ass

    Not sure if this is the thread for my "problem", but trying to reach out if anyone know the solution. I borrowed GOW from my brother and liked it so much that I started NEW game+. Then I decided to buy the game disc (not digital) to continue playing. I bought a PlayStation hits edition and expected to just put the game in and continue playing. What happened was that the game started installing and now I got 2 GOW games to chose from in the PS menu and I am not able to use my old game saves in the new one. I see on the disc (still have my brother's) that the hits edition have a higher serial number stamped on. Next I might try to delete both versions and only install the new one. Anyone experienced this and know a work around? I have not been able to find a solution on the web. Help appreciated.:-D

    Now that is strange. Maybe the original and the new “hits” version are indeed two different games in Sony’s mind, but they shouldn’t be.

    It's indeed strange. They should be the same. They also look identical except for the number as I said and a little different age rating symbols.
    Edit: as for now I have been offered to keep the original and give my brother the hits edition, but I would really like to know what's up. Then he will get the problem, but was ok with that:-D

    Uncharted 4. Ok, the game is beautiful... and fun. But is a bit absurd in some aspects. First of all, the fact of finding the treasure just to discover that the real place is somewhere else SO MANY TIMES is annoying. Of course, it's fun to travel to different places around the world, but doing so always under the premise that you're going to the definitive place, instead of finding different pieces or clues that you have to put together is a bit tiresome.

    I don't know, but I don't get that feel of wonder, anymore. Finding wonderful ruins and treasury caves, one after another, non-stop... I guess this has something to do with it. I remember in the old games, like the classic Tomb Raider games, I felt it. Your presence in the levels was way more grounded, because you really had to explore them through every corner, you really spent time IN them. Now it's all taking a quick look, run, gunfire, go to the next place quick...

    Also, why does everything have to collapse/explode? This also gets to the point of absurd, honestly. It's so predictable that my reaction is rolling my eyes instead of feeling thrilled.

    Oh, and bearing in mind that Nathan is able to do these amazing jumps and to grab from the most impossible ledges, it's quite absurd that sometimes you have to reach a relatively low platform and he says he can't jump that high (or that he can't reach Sam's or Elena's hand).
