Game of the Year 2019 is Spider-Man

Definitely less time for gaming this year but I still managed to complete 13 games (I did start DQ11 in  2019 but completed it this week).

Inside (PS4)
Burly Men at Sea (PS4)
Spider-Man (PS4)
Assassin's Creed Odyssey (PS4)
Football Chairman (iOS)
Children of Zodiarcs (PS4)
What Remains of Edith Finch (PS4)
Bulletstorm Full Clip (PS4)
Shadow of the Tomb Raider (PS4)
Mafia 3 (PS4)
Fifa 19 (PS4)
Dragon Quest Builders 2 ( PS4)
Days Gone (PS4)

I enjoyed playing AC Odyssey, Ubisoft finally seem to have the formula perfected, although I do with they would stick to a 2 or 3-year cycle for releases. Dragon Quest Builders 2 takes the formula from the first game & improves with better automation. I need to play more indie titles because they are much shorter but I did enjoy Edith Finch & Children of the Zodiarcs.

I have played family games on the switch with Mario Party & Kart but the majority of my gaming is done on the PS4 or iOS devices. Football Chairman kept me entertained again for a few months otherwise it has been the usual Township & Clash Royale.

I managed to complete a few PS+ titles in the forgetful Bulletstorm & Mafia 3 which I did enjoy playing. Shadow of the Tomb Raider I felt obliged to play only because I have completed the previous two games & a return to Fifa 19 after my 3-year break with Ultimate Team.

Spider-Man is my game of 2019, so much fun zipping around the city & combat is satisfying. I really enjoyed the boss battles & characters, I wish I had waited to buy the game of the year edition though to enjoy the DLC.




2020 then is the year of the new consoles, I expect to stick with Sony and get the PS5 on release especially if it is released with Horizon Zero Dawn 2, Batman Court of Owls or Cyberpunk 2020. There are quite a few releases which I will not play on the PS4 & wait for the inevitable re-release on PS5 like Final Fantasy 7 remake, Ghosts of Tsushima & Last of Us 2.

Having just completed Dragon Quest XI after 135 hours! I'm going to enjoy some indie titles in No Way Out & Steamworld Heist before moving onto the gaming shelf which includes Star Wars Fallen Jedi, The Outer Worlds & Death Stranding. 

Days Gone (PS4) – Completed

Completed Days Gone recently, here is some intense gameplay taking on a horde!

Dragon Quest Builders 2 – GOTY!


So much fun, lots of quality of life improvements over the first game make it a joy to play.

Completed – Mafia 3 (PS4)


Not posted in a while, I'm still gaming & completing lots of games!

Just look at this list! 36 Games completed! I have been forgetting to add mobile games that I have played in the past.

Mafia 3 finished this weekend, driving is real fun in this gmae & it has no fast travels points which I liked. Set in the 1960s with racial tensions & gang violence you play as Lincoln Clay who returns from a tour in Vietnam to the city of New Bordeaux.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 is out soon so I will be spending a lot of time on that otherwsie it is a lot of Fifa 19 with a little bit of Horzion Turbo Chase & Infamous Second Son.




The Sparta Kick!



One of the most fun abilities in video games, I give you the Sparta Kick!
That satisfaction when looking at your foe fall to their doom.


Red Dead Redemption 2 (PS4) – What a way to end the year!

Walking Dead New Frontier (PS4)
The Division (PS4)
Assassins Creed Origins (PS4)
Telltale Batman (PS4)

Some great games especially God of War, Stardew Valley, AC Origins & Game of the year possibly generation in Red Dead Redemption 2.

I’m still gaming.

It’s been a long time since my last post, I’m still gaming & have completed

Ni No Kuni 2 (PS4) - Enjoyable JRPG with gourgeus visuals

Stardew Valley (PS4) - No idea how or why but I helped my daughter on her game & got hooked myself! Very addictive.

Hidden Agenda (PS4) - Very short local party mode affair not really that good.

God of War (PS4) - Excellent game best so far this year until RDR2. Great story telling, characters & action.

Final Fantasy XV (PS4) - Chaotic combat, boring mundane Sidequests & a main plot which is all over the place. Hopefully the next Final Fantasy will get back to the greats of 6 to 9.

Qube Directors Cut (PS4) - Nice short puzzle game.


Waiting for RDR 2 to be released so not playing anything longer than a few hours, I also got rid of the PSVR just was not playing it.

Gaming Update

Image result for ni no kuni 2

I'm still gaming, since my last post I've completed The Division (the claptrap boys PMG game that has taken us an age to complete), Assassins Creed Origins (an excellent return to form for the ubisoft series), Telltale Batman (the telltale engine is really showing its age lots of technical issues & crashes but hey it's Batman) & Dragonball Z Dokkan Battle (I had completed the main campaign & started to focus on the events to upgrade my deck but my ipad decided to die on me & unfortunately there is no cloud save feature with DBZ & I have lost my progress. Lesson learnt I will not play any iOS game that does not have a proper save feature be it local or icloud).

I have just completed Mad Max this weekend which was good fun, I really enjoyed the bleak open world with the convoy missions being a particular favourite. Next is Ni No Kuni 2 where I have played a few hours, gone is the turned based combat in favour of a more free-roaming affair. It is gorgeous in 4K with it's Ghibli inspired art style.

Until the next update enjoy your gaming.

The Walking Dead – New Frontier (PS4) – Completed



Telltale do know how to make a good story & season 3 of the Walking Dead is just as good as the previous seasons. Some surprises along the way & a nice cameo from a character from the tv show.

Game #2 completed & the next game is Assassin's Creed Origins.

Battlefield 1 (PS4) – Completed



Off to a good start on the 52 game challenge, Battlefield 1 completed. Some of the campaign missions were difficult especially The Runner missions where I was playing that section wrong and trying to kill the enemies on route when you simply had to leggit!!

Really enjoyed the Tank & Plane missions.

Next game is Telltale's The Walking Dead New Frontier.
