Game completion 2019 #6 – Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition

  • Game: Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition
  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: Namco Tales Studio
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco

Apart from 10 minutes of Tales of the Abyss on 3DS, this is my first taste of the Tales series. The story doesn’t quite deliver on its premise and the combat was a little clunky, but I liked it well enough to pick up both Tales of Zestiria and Beseria to see how that combat has evolved since.

I’m probably going to write about it more, so I’ll save the bulk of my thoughts for now.

Game completion 2019 #5 – Minesweeper Genius

  • Game: Minesweeper Genius
  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: Blowfish Studios
  • Publisher: Blowfish Studios

A fun little puzzler that riffs on the infamous Windows built-in, Minesweeper, but with a few tricks of its own. Had a lot of fun running through this while watching TV shows, though there wasn’t much challenge in getting 3 stars on every level.

We spoke about it more in-depth on Episode 62 of the Switch Focus Podcast.

  • Developer: From Software

This is my first time through Lordran, and I loved it so much that I’m officially a Dark Souls bore now, sorry.

I wrote about an incidental thing I loved about it, so please check that out.

Game completion 2019 #1 – Wasteland 2

  • Game: Wasteland 2
  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: inXile Entertainment
  • Publisher: Deep SIlver

I got pretty far into Wasteland 2 on PS4, but deleted it there the second I knew it was coming to Switch. This was a mistake: the Switch port is pretty buggy, particularly in terms of crashing during loading screens, which became so regular towards the end I would have just dumped it had I not been so close to finishing.

The game itself is a weird one. It feels like it had 20 lead creative directors all pulling in different directions, while barely any of the jokes or dialogue landed, but there’s definitely something about it. Every time I was about to decide that I was no longer enjoying it, a good stretch would kick in and I’d be right back in there.
