iOS/Switch Update

Apart from the PS4 I play my iPad quite a lot, in fact, more than my Switch.
I have updated my Play & Completion section with recent iOS titles.

With iOS the majority of games are never-ending you just keep on playing because there is always new updates, more levels or new events. Games that I have stopped playing I will add to my completion list for example like Clash Royale or State of Survival where I have played in excess of 50 hours plus on each!

So what am I playing currently?
Poker Showdown is my current favourite it is a western style rpg where you use poker hands to do battle reminds me a lot of the great Sword & Poker games.

Motorsport Manager Online, Township, Boom Beach, Score Hero, 8 Ball Pool & Mini Metro are my quick five minute fix games that I tend to play most days.

On the Switch I have been enjoying a fair bit of Mario Tennis & Ring Fit Adventure.

The Outer Worlds (PS4) – Completed

Feels like a fallout game but so much better with the different planets you can visit & the many characters in the game. Each quest has a good story to follow and always ensures you meet some surprises along the way. There are six companions in the game but you will quickly find the two you like for me that was Parvati & Ellie.

It has a fallout style opening in which you wake up from a hibernation chamber & begin a quest for Doctor Welles. The main questline could have been slightly longer but leaves it with an ending that is sure to have a sequel. There are many side quests, tasks & companion quests to complete.

Here's hoping that the sequel is not an xbox exclusive.

Next to play something a little shorter in Concrete Genie.

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order (PS4) – Completed

A bit late on this post, I completed the game last month. It is a bit rough around the edges but it is easily the best Star Wars game I have played in years. Nothing is more fun than deflecting laser shots or slicing a stormtrooper with a light saber.

It has taken ideas from other action adventures games like Uncharted/Tomb Raider but it's Star Wars so that's ok.

Decent 7/10


Next The Outer Worlds

Death Stranding (PS4) – Completed

It took me a while but I finally delivered all my parcels to complete the game. Towards the end of the game, there are quite a few episodes of Death Stranding the TV series to enjoy but then this is Kojima and he does like his cutscenes.



The next game is Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order.

Death Stranding (PS4) – Courier Simulation

After I completed DQ11, I started playing Death Stranding. It's Kojima what else can I say?

Dragon Quest XI – Completed

I missed posting that I completed DQ11 back in January, here are 200 videos to enjoy!

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. 

Milkmaid of the Milky Way (Switch): COMPLETED!

Imagine if Another World was a point-and-click adventure game about a milkmaid in space, and all the dialogue was in rhyming couplets. Well, that’s Milkmaid of the Milky Way.

It’s only a couple of hours long, but tells the story of how a struggling milkmaid has her cows abducted by aliens (as aliens are wont to do) one night and then manages to get aboard their spaceship to try and rescue them.

My milkbeasts bring all the boys to the biodome

The puzzles are mostly straightforward, with the exception of the final one which felt a lot like “try everything on everything in case it works”, and it told an interesting story with a couple of twists. I really enjoyed it!

One Strike (Switch): COMPLETED!

It’ll probably take longer to read this post than it took me to complete the game. One Strike is a one-on-one fighting game with the sort of graphics early Game Boy Advance games had, with colour palettes to suit the very dark GBA screen. Games like Castlevania: Circle of the Moon looked hideous when blown up on a big TV via an emulator, and so does One Strike.

As the name suggests, you need to strike your opponent just once to kill them. It’s basically one-hit-kill Samurai Shodown.

My eyes!

And, with only about 8 opponents, it doesn’t take long to simply press dash-dash-attack your way through them all.

I’m glad the game was free because I’d certainly never pay money for something this shallow, short, and offensive to my eyes. Perhaps in two player mode there’s more strategy, but I won’t be playing it again to find out.
