  • 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.

Nintendo at their most joyously creative. I loved it.

Fancied a no-warps playthrough. Still holds up.

Game Completion 2020 #57 – Super Mario Sunshine

  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: Nintendo
  • Publisher: Nintendo

Expected not to enjoy Super Mario Sunshine given the derision it’s received over the years, but I ended up enjoying it a whole bunch, even if not my favourite 3D Mario game.
