PS4 - Spider-Man

Amazing title, all around.
Insomniac nailed lots of important factors such as traversal round the city, a good story and classic humor.
Ran pretty well on PS4 pro, lot of lower-poly items to help that.
Collection and side quests are handled well and the options to skip puzzles and QTEís are nice (didnít use though).
Voice acting and music were a treat.
Have to knock points off for zero replay value, thereís no point in playing through story again.

Still hoping MS X enhances sunset overdrive.

Dragon Quest XI and Shadow of the Tomb Raider

I completed DQXI in about 90 hours. I used Cheat Engine to cut down on the end game grinding. That way I wouldn't have to rely on RNG to getting Metal Slimes. I didn't 100% it. I guess, you can say I got 50 out of 58 achievements on Steam for it. Still, it's a solid game and one of the last JRPGs I can remember completing. I think Ni No Kuni 1 was the last one I actually finished.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider...

Well, it's ok. I didn't hate it and I think actually playing it is fine. You know what you're getting at this point. My issue were the bugs. The buggy graphics, the buggy movement/climbing, the buggy AI...etc. It's a buggy game. I waited for a few of the patches to come out before I sunk my time into it. It was still buggy. It's still buggy. But, I'd say it's playable currently...just expect to get mad at it from time to time.

Story is meh.

I completed both Spider-Man and Horizon: Zero Dawn over the last couple of months. I still have the DLC to go through, but I've moved on to trying to complete the PSP God of War titles and playing Legend of Dragoon for the first time.

I'm not the biggest fan of Legend of Dragoon and I think I'm remembering why I never bought the game back in the day; THE TERRIBLE COMBAT SYSTEM!!! It's a rough ager and not a prime example of the genre. Not in my book. I'm hoping it will get better, but right now it's a freaking slog. I was able to transfer my file from the PS3 to my hacked PSP. But, it required me to find a not so legit copy to load it on there. Still, I bought the damn game. I had to do the same thing with Rondo of Blood.

*Pro Tip*

If playing Shovel Knight and you find a lot of the jumps to be shitty, use the analog stick. It was designed for it. You might be surprised how much easier those jumps are with using the analog stick over the d-pad. The same is true for Hollow Knight. Which, I'd say accessing some of those areas is a true gymnastics feat.

I completed Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy these past two weeks. Well, I also finished my second playthrough of Uncharted 3 (using the PS4 Collection).

Uncharted 3 - still a low point of the series, but benefits from the Jurassic Park effect whereas the follow up makes it look better. The problem with UC3 is its pacing. It's too set piece heavy and the combat/hand to hand is terrible. It needed more moments to take its breath. It reminded me of myself when I get to interact with an actual human after 6 months in isolation.

Uncharted 4 - Not nearly as terrible as I initially thought...but def the weakest of the series and not a good ending for the series. Sorry Drake. The hard linear levels and forced walking segments REALLY bog down the game. It reminds me of Gears of War 2 and its "Hey, check out these graphics!" bits.

Uncharted: Lost Legacy - Better than UC4 by virtue of being able to actually play it. However, the open world stuff should have been cut. It's fluff and it is apparent.
