Game Completion 2020 #67 – Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: Omega Force
  • Publisher: Nintendo

Improves on the original Hyrule Warriors in almost all areas, but especially in its expanded combat systems and tone. Some… less than ideal story elements prevent it from being the true Breath of the Wild prequel it was billed, but remains incredibly entertaining throughout.

  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: Nintendo

Top-tier writing didn’t quite rescue a game utterly devoid of interesting systems and severe pacing problems.

Game Completion 2020 #65 – Transformers: Battlegrounds

  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: Coatsink
  • Publisher: Outright Games

A great genre entry point for youngsters or newcomers, but not nearly challenging enough for those familiar with its tried and tested systems.

Game Completion 2020 #64 – Bloodborne (and The Old Hunters DLC)

  • Platform: PS4
  • Developer: FromSoftware
  • Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment

I think this is my fifth time through Bloodborne but my previous runs were all new-game pluses made before the DLC dropped. Given it’s ill-advised to do Souls DLC in NG+, I’d therefore never played the newer content.

Started a new character last month and loved the game even more this time around, especially with the additional challenge of those new bosses.

  • Platform: PS3
  • Developer: FromSoftware
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco / Sony Computer Entertainment

Finally got around to playing the PS3 classic. Very much a jankier dress rehearsal for what came next. Loved it.
