Curse of Issyos brings up another nostalgia of BGM music style which is so sorrow that brings me to the dark ages of Personal PC...which is cool but gameplay difficulty is WAY TOO unforgiving mainly due to limited continue times...

So that game is based of the godawful tom cruise flick? The game looks cool, but the film was garbage I hear.
The film IS horrible. And from what I hear, the Dark universe is basically dead (for now, but Universal might take another crack at a "Universal Monster Cinematic Universe" sometime in the future, and here's hoping they ditch the dumb "super hero action" concept and play up what these movies ARE, horror). Those people I know that have played this said it's the BEST thing to come from the Dark Universe, and that it's sorta like Castlevania, Metroid and Contra with a dash of Dark Souls. From hearing bits of the music, it the OST seems to take inspiration from John Carpenter's style (basically now, the "Retro Wave" style).

Question Zuljaras.

Is Skyrim complete for the switch? Or did Bethesda get lazy with this one as well and we must download the majority of the game from the internet?

A 100% is on the cartridge. With ALL 3 DLCs included in the game right from the start. You can download only patches and additional Languages and they are optional.

This is the best port on the Switch. I am really impressed by the quality of the game on the Switch. I hope Fallout is next!

The 2 Last Blade games, which made me bite the bullet and pick up the Japanese PS1 version of the original, then the 2 games on the PS2 Neo Geo Online Collection compilation.

The movesets make my thumb hurt like crazy using a PS2 pad in MAME, and PCSX2 (which is how I tested the quality of many PS2 Neo Geo games before buying them).

Played a quick game of Rastan on the Taito Collection. I don't ever remember that game not allowing continues on the last level. I could've sworn I've beaten it before, but then again, I seriously doubt I could finish the final level on one credit. (That sort of restriction in older games is total bullshit, IMO...right up there with DMC-style performance grading on my list of gaming pet peeves)

Lately I've dabbled a little in three games: CrossCode on Steam, as well as Mario Odyssey and Mario+Rabbids.

I finished Wolfenstien the new colossus. Didn't like the game as I thought I would. I felt it was just a bit too negative for my tastes. I get that the Nazis are like that but i think they emphasised on that a little too much. At least in the original games (even the PS3 one that came out before The New Order and Oldblood) they felt more fun and not nearly as negative.

Overall i felt The New Order was the better game then The New Collossus. If they decide to do another Wolfenstien they should make the game feel more enjoyable and not so negative.

I agree with you that The New Order was better. Much more enjoyable than this new one.

One thing that I really liked was the ubercommander missions, though. And the fact that you can dual-wield a shotgun and an assault rifle at the same time. Not even those heavy-armored guys stand a chance up close with that combination.

Dual-wielding was something i only found out by accident. But I never did use it. It just seemed more fun in N64's Goldeneye.

It wasn't something that felt practical at first, so I avoided it entirely on The New Order. But on The New Colossus, it's a must for higher difficulties, especially Death Incarnate. When you have enemies swarm in close on your corner, you can just let them have it with both guns at once, and it makes really short work of them.



Played a few games I got for free on PS Plus a while back: Journey and Furi. Journey was just kind of boring to me. Furi is excellent, though. Nice one-on-one gun/sword battles, and the retrowave music is pretty nice, too.

Taito games are known to do such a thing, give you all the continues in the world.....till you reach the last stage, then the game ditches them. Capcom did the exact same thing with 1943 Kai for the Japanese version. US version, you can continue to win, Japanese version tells you, don't die on the last stage, or you're finished. I personally don't mind games doing this, makes you really have to get good if you want to win, if not, keep trying till you do.
