Beyond Tetris Effect, one of the most interesting games around E3 times was one released before the show. Yoku’s Island Express is a delightful combination of platforming, pinball, technical mastery and an enchanting art style. Highly recommended as a stress reliever.
Tetris and Mizuguchi.
Played through Uncharted: The Lost Legacy this evening. It’s a captivating title, produced to the standard I’ve come to expect from Naughty Dog. But, above all, it’s a masterclass in pacing. From intense combat to quiet story moments, it’s all strung together beautifully.
After spending 40+ hours with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, it’s hard for me to remember another game that evokes the same sense of exploration. No matter what you do, you’ll likely be sidetracked by a new quest, a quaint village, a new gameplay mechanic or just the beauty of the open world.
I’m hesitant to call this the best game I’ve ever played, but it’s not far off. I haven’t had this sense of childlike discovery in over a decade.
Fired up Diablo III during the weekend and went on to spend four hours with it. It really is the best podcast game: pop on your headphones, put on the Giant Bombcast, and go slay some demons.
The end of one era and the start of another.
