    @Humperfunk How did you find the performance on this? (and are you using a standard or Pro?) The PS4 version seemed to get a lot of flak on launch for this and I am tempted by the upcoming physical copy but only have a standard PS4.

    And on topic I should get Chaos;Child finished off soon for my list... Not many weeks left now...

    @One_Vurfed_Gwrx played on the Pro mate and thought it was perfect, didn't notice any blemishes or issues at all.

    39. Chaos;Child (Vita) (10/12/17) (9/10) (PLAT)

    Finally finished Chaos;Child which took a lot longer than I expected. Finished all routes and trophies. Visual novel by the same author/team as Steins;Gate. Horror/Murder Mystery genrr with a smattering of OTT 'Science'. While not quite as good as SG it was a lot better than its predecessor, Chaos;Head with a protagonist who was flawed but not as dislikable as in CH. Story was interesting and some of the route variations were quite dark (one was a bit silly bit it fitted the character). Still has some dogier delusion triggers but at least the character judges himself harshly after those ones unlike the CH protagonist. Nice and decent voice acting. After the patch mostly pretty well translated bar the odd silly typo and gender switch. One bad bit is a map scene which is still in Japanese (easy to find a guide) and to make things worse the Zoom button on Vita fails to work on that bit (or I could have figured it out myself). If you like SG and like the sound of the plot it is worth a playthrough.

    Going to play Yomawari Midnight Shadows next and set myself the goal of at least finishing DQVII, Inside and Little Nightmares by the end of the month. Other games in progress are long ones so unlikely to finish them. I should reach 40 for the first time but doubt I will get close to 50...

    @One_Vurfed_Gwrx

    Great stuff- I think realistically Chaos Child will fall into 2018 completion for me now.

    I think I have said a couple of times in the thread but the last two years I have done this, I have finished on 37 games exactly and am on 35 with two/three weeks to go! Would love to reach 40 one year but as my main genre is JRPGs, unlikely. Aiming for 37 again so need two more...

    The rpgs are what kill my list. The ones you see are only the fi ished ones ;). Plenty started and not finished with tons of hours on them like Fire Emblem, Persona 1, Yakuza 0, the aforementioned DQ VII, Zelda BotW and Last Remnant to name a few...

    I think my record for this is 34. I wouldn't be surprised if Chaos;Child took JRPG length too. It doesn't have a timer but feels much longer than I remember the Steins;Gate games being. At least I don't play multiplayer stuff.

    11/12/17 - Vostok Inc - 7.5/10

    An enjoyable and amusing mix of twin stick shooter and clicker game. It's fun for about 80% of its length but the last bit just seems like a massive grind. I was in danger of abandoning it until I found a way to shortcut building up the cash required to unlock the final boss. It's not the best shooter and I can't say if it's the best clicker but it was addictive enough to hold my attention for 4 days. I'd recommend blasting through it in short order rather than dragging it out.

    There are some issues with how the player power escalates and I found myself vastly overpowered about half way through. Anyway, a good fun game that I enjoyed playing and which was worth the time spent.

    A lot darker than I was expecting. Also Nazi robot dogs. Going back to health packs after so many years of regen takes some getting used to.

    Game 19: The Evil Within 2 (xb1) 9/10 beat on 13/12/17

    I thought I had declared for the year but managed to play and complete not only the 3 story dlc's for Mafia III in Nov but also start and complete the rather brilliant The Evil Within 2 So glad I did decide to buy and play it, really enjoyed and would certainly return for any dlc fun.

    That is it for the year though, I will not have the time to start, enjoy (which is what it is all about) and complete a game before the new year.

    I probably would have thought I would have played more games this year. There are a few more to add to the list, but I just couldn't get into them, so the dont go on!

    I have spent about 80% of my game playing year with Gears, likely that will be the same in 2018 but I still enjoy playing other games.

    Half way through I was ready to give this a 9, for being a more focused and compact game than the first with some fun set pieces. Then two thirds of the way through they went and fucked it right up.

    You can skip it, although it does technically spoiler Chaos;Head by discussing the broad strokes of the plot (but leaves enough as a mystery if you do play it in the future). I heard the translator say himself that it is possibly better in some ways to have no previous knowledge.

    Edit - typo fixing

    Kathy Rain

    A fairly decent point and click adventure with supernatural aspects to it. Most of the puzzles were relatively easy except for one near the start and another near the end. The one thing I didn't like about it was the slow speed of character movement. Not as good as the Blackwell games.

    Tacoma

    Basically Gone Home in space. It's not as good as GH and only takes a couple of hours to complete. It felt quite sterile due to the futuristic setting but had some neat touches and quite a good ending.

    That open world chapter dragged a bit, but otherwise it was excellent. Being a bit shorter works in its favour, but at about 7.5 hours it’s a similar length to the first Uncharted so hardly a little side thing. And some of those vistas are just absurd, Naughty Dog’s technical wizardry really is in a league of its own.

    Gorogoa

    A short (2-3 hour long) beautifully animated puzzle game that presents itself as more of an interactive experience. It's all about manipulating layers of tiles and delving deeper into a mysterious world. For example if there's a door in a building that you're standing in front of, you can perhaps pull the building away from under it and shift it over to the side. You then work on manipulating the inside of the building and so on, mostly in order to form paths for the protagonist to navigate.

    It's the kind of thing that makes you feel quite clever once you understand its inner workings. It's fairly straightforward for the most part, even with the hot spot indicator switched off, although there is a bit of a difficulty spike halfway through. Once you get it, you've pretty much got a straight line to the end and there's not much more to discover. You'll probably get stuck a couple of times to be fair.

    The last couple of chapters are so easy that they almost play themselves. I certainly had the impression that the game pretty much plays itself and as it never really gives anything away as to what it all means, it might leave you feeling cold. An interesting experience for sure.

    Uncharted: Lost Legacy 7/10

    In many respects just want you'd want and expect, in others a bit of a let down. I wanted Chloe to feel different to Nate. But essentially it was like I was controlling Nate in a female skin. No difference to the things she could do better or worse than Nate, no difference to combat (Nate being able to beat up everyone with his fists was jarring enough, but with Chloe it doesn't feel right. Mixing it up with martial arts of some sort would have felt better). Same climbing animations. It was just Nate and his brother in different skins for me.

    The story was, as always, excellently delivered. And arguably better than UC4. However the same foibles crept in, like the completely unrealistic leaps at times (clearly 15-20ft leaps at times) while you can't then make a small hop over something that's in your way.

    Perhaps I've just binged too much on Uncharted over the years.

    Firewatch 6/10

    I went into this knowing nothing at all about the game, and was really looking forward to it. For the first half it was clear 8 or 9/10 territory. And it just fell flat from there.

    The narrative wanted you to rush around a bit, whereas you'd clearly get a bit more out of the game if you took a bit more time than it was trying to make you take. And the ending....well. It left me feeling flat.

    I thought there'd be more to it than this, and while I quite like what it attempted with the ending, it delivered it in a clumsy. almost rushed, fashion for me.

    It also suffers from some pretty horrible stuttering/frame rate drops on PS4, which detracts from the experience.

    It was going to be the last game I finished this year, before I crack on with a load of Wii U goodness next year, but I may try to finish something else off so the year doesn't end with a damp gaming squib.

    29) Hyrule Warriors Master Quest DLC - Wii U - 7/10 (completed)

    Hyrule Warrios (and DLC) 7/10

    Tale of two halves. Gameplay is really enjoyable. But the story is....pretty much non-existent. Or at least non-sensical. At the audio......gnnnrrrr. Cheesy 80's film Rock as a soundtrack and because they decided to go with no voiceover work at all, and instead replace the script with grunts, it sounds like a porno movie while you're playing it.

    But purely in gameplay terms it's very good, and much more enjoyable than I thought. Managing the map is really key, especially earlier in the game when you're fairly weak.

    With a bit more development on the delivery of the story, and the awful audio, it could easily have been a much better overall experience.

    Finally got a 'new' gamepad so I could play this. Fifth game in the photography ghost story survival horror series. Graphics are possibly a little too clean and high-res but the Japanese voicetrack (has an Enish dub too which I ignored) and sound effects work well. Atmospheric story themed around water where you investigate a haunted mountain. There is a touch too much revisiting old locations (the game is chapter based unlike the previous games) and could do with a few more ghost types bit I enjoyed the forboding atmosphere (playing in the dark is a must). Controls work better than the Wii games in the series. I think I got the best ending of each character (and only got less than S grade kn two stages on normal). Finished the bonus section too but will get other endings later.

    Hoping to polish off DQVII, Yomawari, Inside and Little Nightmares before end of year now...

    Steam world Dig 2.

    Another excellent title from image and form. More of the same from the first, but that ain't a bad thing right? Charming presentation - the visuals and artsyle really pop of the switch's screen. The gameplay is as compulsive as ever, with a satisfying gameplay loop of dig, loot, trade, better equipment, further you go.

    5/5

    Yakuza 0.

    Havn't completed this one, i think i have abandoned it 20 hours in, i just lost the will to play it, which is a shame because the story and narrative is pproably one of the best i have experienced as a gamer up until now, just that i wasn't drawn in by the gameplay at all or rather, i just felt i had my share of it.

    Abandoned. - Might be possible i might dip in and out of it though.
