Game Completion 2021 #4 – Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game

Still my favourite side-scrolling beat ’em up of all time, which I’ll talk more about on the next N-Focus episode.

Game Completion 2021 #3 – Assassin’s Creed: Rogue

  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft

I spent the first third of Assassin’s Creed: Rogue feeling like it was merely Black Flag DLC. Yet, as Shay Cormac’s story escalated the more its own identity came to the fore, and the more I enjoyed it on its own merits.

I’ll talk more about that on a future N-Focus episode.

Game Completion 2021 #2 – Freedom Cry (Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag DLC)

  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft

Will talk about this when the N-Focus podcast returns later this January. The short version? Meaningful themes served in a non-meaningful and way.

Also included the Aveline DLC in this completion as it was only 40-odd minutes long.

Game Completion 2021 #1 – Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag

  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft

I stopped playing the Assassin’s Creed series after hitting the mandatory tower defence section in the early stages of Revelations. At the time that felt a huge shame as its precursor, Brotherhood, was easily my favourite of the series, but I was already growing tired of the yearly release cycle and it felt like a good time to let it go. As a result, I haven’t touched the series since, even now with its recent hiatus, switch to a bi-yearly release schedule and new RPG revamp.

That said, remembering the positive buzz around Black Flag at release, I couldn’t a resist Boxing Day bargain price for The Rebel Collection (and Valhalla), which is a generous packaging of both pirate-themed releases and its DLC. The result? Me regretting dropping the series all those years ago. I’ll talk more in-depth about it when the N-Focus podcast comes back later this month.

A terrifically varied open-world racer.

Game Completion 2020 #71 – DiRT 5

  • Platform: PS5
  • Developer: Codemasters
  • Publisher: Codemasters

With the exception of Sprint Car races, DiRT 5 is a beautiful, enjoyable racer that’s elevated massively by the DualSense’s haptics. Unfortunately, it’s also a little buggy, including regular software crashes and trophies that do not pop, robbing me of the platinum that’s rightfully mine.

Game Completion 2020 #70 – Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales

  • Platform: PS5
  • Developer: Insomniac
  • Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment

More of the same but prettier, smoother and shorter (not a complaint). Miles is a great Spidey, and I loved that this was set at Christmas. ‘Tis the season and all that.
