  1. This week’s Amazon delivery…
  2. My gaming new year’s resolution is to go physical (wherever possible) with PS5 after being pretty much fully-digital with PS3/PS4/Switch games and so these arrived this week (I actually own both games digitally/100%’d last year but they’re my favourite games so where better to start…) The Japanese FF7R boxart is 🔥 My physical collection now stands at a whopping 7 games, 3 pieces of DQ merch and a copy of Famitsu… Ballin’
  3. Buffon Maldini Cannavaro Chiellini Zanetti Rijkaard Pirlo Zidane Maradona Ronaldo (The Brazilian one) Henry Subs: Kahn Baresi Roberto Carlos Gullit Van Basten Messi
  4. Among other things, I’m definitely going to be sinking a lot of time into some classic JRPGs this year… Persona 4 Golden Resident Evil 4 Remake MLB The Show 23 Horizon: Forbidden West (Burning Shores DLC) Final Fantasy I - VI (Pixel Remasters) Final Fantasy XVI Suikoden I & II Hollow Knight: Silksong Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Other games I hope make it into 2023: Dragon Ball FighterZ (PS5 port) Dragon Quest III HD-2D Remake Granblue Fantasy Relink Tekken 8
  5. Maybe plant a seed for “Dragon Quest V 2D-HD Remake” also…
  6. Hopefully this is just Square’s own stock numbers being underbaked and the Standard edition will also be available on Amazon etc once all those places get around to putting their pre-orders up. The standard PS4 edition is showing unavailable in Europe currently so annoyingly I’ve had to stick in a pre-order for the collector’s edition despite not actually wanting anything in it other than the game…
  7. I think I speak for all non-FFXIV players when I say…
  8. Aren’t Bethesda making a big budget Indiana Jones game though? You’ve got to think that’ll at least be Day 1 on Gamepass and see a big marketing push from Xbox, if not the start a major XBOX exclusive franchise. Sony probably just want to counter that and confirm their place on top in the story-driven adventure space. I’m fine with them rebooting it, I don’t have any interest in Naughty Dog games so never played the old Uncharted games, if the reboot is less linear and scripted/QTE-y I’ll probably pick it up. Would love something just straight up ripping Indiana Jones, set in the past (Nate’s Grandfather?), raiding Egyptian pyramids in the 1920s-1950s, that sort of thing…
  9. Really? I could swear I read Elden Ring required online/PvP always enabled and Bloodborne (or maybe just it’s DLC) was near impossible without turning to coop. If Elden Ring can be done offline I’ll pick that up immediately…
  10. Story and collectible trophies are actually my favourite trophies… Difficulty/grind trophies I could live without but they’re fine. Personally, my only ”hate” is online stuff e.g. I’m a fighting game nut but I’ll never touch acclaimed games like Dragonball FighterZ, KOF XV or Persona 4 Arena as they’re all primarily online lists. Another example is Ghost of Tsushima, that coop DLC makes the game a “no-go” for me despite it otherwise catering to my tastes 100%. I also LOVED the Demon’s Souls Remake (it’s probably one of my 10 favourite games of all-time) but the invasion/PVP part of the general gameplay puts me off ever trying Bloodborne, Elden Ring or any other FromSoft game… I just don’t need that sort of trolling in my life.
  11. It is an easy game (or rather you can negate any difficulty with difficulty settings/sliders) but for one thing there’s an RNG element to a couple of trophies like catching a ball hit for speed etc. Personally, I would be amazed if somebody with no experience of this franchise is picking this game up for the first time and getting the platinum that quickly.
  12. Pretty good year for me, all killer, no filler in terms of game quality. I also earned a surprising number of platinums given I’ve sunk at least 1,000 hours into Gran Turismo 7 this year: Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium [100% - No Platinum] Capcom Fighting Collection Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age Final Fantasy VII Final Fantasy VII Remake Gran Turismo 7 (PS4 + PS5) Hollow Knight Horizon Forbidden West Horizon Zero Dawn Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 [100% - No Platinum] MLB The Show 23 (PS4 + PS5) NBA 2K23 Persona 5 Royal Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge The King of Fighters ‘98: Ultimate Match - Final Edition [100% - No Platinum] Windjammers 2
  13. Personally, I think video games are a shoddy delivery method for a story so I couldn’t care less about watching recaps or trying to remember who characters are. If I took an extended break from a game the first thing I’d likely remember about it is any shocking plot twists or great characters, the rest will either be overly formulaic or convoluted and probably not relevant to any gameplay. 100% of the time you can fall back into the story loop after just one or two main missions so it then all comes down to progress tracking. For example, if I need to collect 100 MacGuffins and I can see which I have already on that save file in my inventory or on a map, then I will just pick up where I left off. If that progress tracking was all in my head then I’ll just start over as I may as well experience the joy of picking up each item and knowing I have it rather than likely getting to the end and having to wonder which I’ve missed and having to find that through randomly backtracking.
  14. Personally, I think Bayonetta 2 is the best action game ever made. Bayonetta 2 plays like a dream, it feels so good to play infact that I have tried to start playing God of War (2018) 3 or 4 times now and despite God of War having much better graphics, all around better production values and (IMO) a better setting, every single time I have without fail got through a few battles and then thought “**** this garbage, I’m just going to play Bayonetta 2 again”. Or to put it another way… I have owned a Nintendo Switch since launch, 50% of the games I have purchased for/played on said Switch are Bayonetta games. I have 100%’d both Breath of the Wild and Mario Odyssey, yet according to my Switch my most played game is Bayonetta 2 (despite the fact I originally played it on Wii U).
  15. Pfft… I was vaguely interested in this due to the strong aesthetic but trophies for online? Consider me out, if I wanted to socialise I wouldn’t be sat playing video games in the first place… Now please excuse me while I go back to working on my 3rd platinum of Persona 5 in as many years and enjoy 100 hours of sweet, sweet self-imposed solitary confinement.
