  1. Nova-111 on PSVita Very enjoyable turn based strategy game with some real-time aspects thrown in. This is one which had been sitting in my backlog for a long time so decided to jump in. Overall its a relaxing game, with some exploration needed to find all the collectibles but levels are short enough so replaying is not a big deal. Plays well for the most part on the PSVita but movement can be a little slow at times which can cause you to take a hit from time to time. Another quality game from curve digital, not as good as stealth inc but a solid game nonetheless. Overall 6/10 enjoyment and 4/10 difficultly
  2. #218 - The Walking Dead: A New Frontier on PS4 (#42 of 2018) Average enough telltale story based game, not the worst but by no means the best. Its a while since I've played anything from telltale and I immediately noticed the new engine is much better, especially with the characters expressions and the game never crashed. Clem easily is the most interesting character and you don't even play as her. Morally lots of interesting choices which does get you thinking, 'What would I do in that situation!'. Anyhow, I'll look forward to seeing where the story eventually takes Clem. Overall 6/10 enjoyment and 1/10 difficultly
  3. #216 - Claire on PSVita (#40 of 2018) #217 - Claire on PS4 (#41 of 2018) Claire is a 2D retro style horror exploring / survival game. Its got collectibles and some side quest aspects to its game play. It reminded me of Lone Survivor so if you played that and liked it you will probably enjoy this game. Overall, I liked the story, style and atmosphere. It was also free on PS+ a while ago. Overall 6/10 enjoyment and 4/10 difficultly
  4. #215 - Until Dawn on PS4 (#39 of 2018) Tremendous game. I really liked the story, enjoyed the collectibles element and having to play through a few times to get the 'save all' or 'kill all' based trophies. I feel telltale could learn from this format as players normally only play one path to the end and fail to experience all the endings. One down point is for the QTE's which can be tedious at some points and the story in parts has its holes but overall this is a very entertaining experience and one I will certainly look back on having fully enjoyed. Overall 8/10 enjoyment and 3/10 difficultly
  5. #214 - Undertale on PSVita (#38 of 2018) Underwhelmed is the only word to describe this game for me. Based on a IGN 10 score review and how everyone raves about this game I was expecting it to be great. I did not hate it but did not really enjoy it either, it just did not hold me. Trophies got and I'm finished with it now, probably won't even complete story as my interest has moved on. Overall 4/10 enjoyment and 3/10 difficultly
  6. I have two PSVita connected to my main PSN account but only one can be online at anytime. So on the one my daughter has the WiFi is disabled (and she never enables it) so that my one is connected when I want it.
  7. I 'NEVER' buy games when they come out or shortly after launch, they are just too expensive for me. If you want to play ASAP then its gonna cost you, especially for AAA titles. I just have a huge wish list of games I want to play and then about once a week I check to see what the prices are and grab the ones that go really cheap. I got 'Life is Strange' on PS3 for €1,79 late last year :-) Shadow of the Colossus is already on a 37% discount on the EU store and its only a few months out ...
  8. #213 - Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse on PS4 (#37 of 2018) Enjoyable and funny point and click adventure. Nothing complication when going for platinum. Decent game well worth a look, especially when its on sale. Overall 6/10 enjoyment and 3/10 difficultly
  9. Yes, the one I linked is covering all the specific PSVita differences in the game.
  10. #212 - RiME on PS4 (#36 of 2018) I loved this game. Visually beautiful, wonderful story, gorgeous music and a truly emotional ending. Its however, not perfect. The camera is wonky in parts and puzzles while fun, mostly have only a single layer solution to them. In addition after completing some puzzles I was unclear what do next which took some time to figure out. But overall that's about all I could complain about, I would truly recommend experiencing this game for anyone who has not played. I'll also add that there are a number of collectibles and missable trophies so reference a guide for those. Overall 8/10 enjoyment and 3/10 difficultly
  11. #210 - Wheels of Aurelia on PS4 (#34 of 2018) Road trip story adventure which branches off into 16 different endings. Add to that some other trophies requirements you will need 20+ plays to get this completed but the game is short which each play taking between 10-20 minutes to complete. A good game and easy enough platinum but beware, the guide on this site has some shortcomings so make sure to check out the comments section. I also picked this up in a recent sale for €2.99 so check for it in sales. Overall 5/10 enjoyment and 3/10 difficultly
  12. #206 - Dying: Reborn on PS4 NA Stack (#30 of 2018) #207 - Slyde on PS4 (#31 of 2018) Now back to Uncanny Valley which I'm really enjoying
  13. #205 - Dying: Reborn on PSVita (#29 of 2018) Dying: Reborn is an interesting enough point and click puzzle game. It takes the format of a room escape with a atmospheric horror theme. However, the story is a mess and while a horror is not scary at all. I picked it up for a few euro's in a sale and was well worth the money giving a few hours of game play. Overall 4/10 enjoyment and 3/10 difficultly
  14. Despite the title and this post being against the PSVita the video above is NOT for the PSVita. While it may help you there are some differences between the PS4 and PSVita. The link below contains a playlist for the PSVita. Its not a speed-run so is long in parts while the player figures out the puzzles but does contain all the specifics needed for the PSVita version of the game. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlGhPWJFXLZE8a0ttU7_7i_KoY7qbNp1V
  15. #202/203/204 - Midnight Deluxe - (#26/27/28 of 2018) A good short game with some easy trophies. Overall 5/10 enjoyment and 2/10 difficultly
