Games you beat in 2018+competition.

Side note: This thread is for everyone, if you aren't competing that's fine, it's all good in the hood. You can do whatever you want.

Anyway

Judges

Rules: What counts and how many points

Point System

Finally, how you should post your beaten game. First and foremost I would prefer if all the competitors can make it to page 1 of this thread, AND more importantly, if you also update your post in page 1 throughout the year. It'll make things easier.

After that this is how you need to post it. Example

1: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
howlongtobeat.com/game.php?id=10270
Points: 10

I want a number at the front of the game, the full title of the game (subtitle no matter how obnoxious included), followed by a link to the how long to beat page directly under it,and then the points the game is worth, because you can do the math it is so simple. If it's a game club game, put "Game of the Month: Month" underneath. Pretty simple right?

This is meant to make it easier for judges and for people to follow along. You'll have to do a tad bit more work with your quoting.


Phew, pretty sure I got everything.

Addition.

How I'm handling gameclub. I'm handling it like movie club. I'm a tell one cat, that this is their month to pick our game. Go. I'm not doing the voting routine, that bogs down too many things. January is Khandi's pick. February is Troll Bryan.

Judges can still add a gameclub game as well.

The game is rad, story mode is boring outside the classic DBZ heroes n villains interacting with each other.

2018
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch)
Splatoon 2 (Switch)
Fire Emblem Warriors (Switch)

Beat the story mode. It has shit story, but the game is one of the better Warriors game. Combos are good, character models are really good, and the way pegasi, wyverns and horses move during action is amazing. I was really impressed with the horses especially, considering no Warriors game ever got horse combat right. Sure, it means on-foot characters can't ride horses, but whatever, they run like Usain Bolt anyway.

The twin main characters a bland af, Fire Emblem Heroes had it better (because one of them actually uses different weapon). The roster isn't balanced at all, there are too many sword users, whereas the archer users have the same exact animations. Fun weapons are all gone, so the action is really highlighted with how pegasi, wyverns and horse users work, but there are 3 pegasus knights (and they share the same bloody moveset) while only one knight and one wyvern rider.

Using characters from the past games aren't bad, certainly had my fun with them mostly because this is the only way to listen to FE Fates characters with proper voice (i.e. not that horrendous Eng dub), but considering how many clones there are, I would say they could've just went with whole new set of cast where characters share clone movesets like in the original FE series. Probably could've come up with a better story with that way.

Other than that, it's missing Ike, Ephraim, Eirike, and Hector, I guess they did get Lyndis in somehow though she's not part of the story (nor is Celica).

The strategy portion of the game is very much lacking. They could've expanded on The Arslan Musou system, or give the strategy map a lot more attention, with AI fightings work more like SRPG. At this point, it basically is DW8 Empires with grid system.

I don't think it's a lazy game, they just never went to the extra mile, which is basically the case for every single Warriors game out there
- Dynasty Warriors 1 was a shitty fighting game and DW2 made it into an action game
- Samurai Warriors 2 was the one that really took that sub-series to new heights
- DW: Gundam 1 was bad, and got shitload of contents and care with the second game
- Same goes for Pirate Warriors
- And Orochi series, which basically got better with Orochi 3 (2 in Japan)
- Hyrule Warriors is probably the only exception

So, I'm expecting a lot for the sequel.

Replayed Superhot VR
It's still really great

Replayed Doom (2016) (7/10) - The Switch version is as faithful as you can expect - by and large, this is still Doom 2016. The first half of the game is this beautiful crescendo toward more intense firefights and sprawling maps, all veiled by a sense of mystery and Doomguy not giving a fuck. The second half is a mess of pacing, bad level design, linear corridors, and suddenly Doomguy constrained by the orders of the small cast. It feels empty and detached in the later goings, and now I understand that weird sense I had playing it the first time where I remembered it more fondly than I felt while playing it. The Switch is serviceable to play it on, the combat shotgun makes strafing around enemies while holding down the fire button viable, but when you start switching to swapping around enemies, mods, weapons... it highlights how weird of a handheld the Switch is, and how FPS isn't the ideal genre for it.

Beat Super Mario Odyssey

Wow, what a fucking game. All hail Nintendo, back on top of their game after the wasteland that was the Wii U and its first party titles.

Damn, Sony is on a roll this year. All enjoyable games, some more than others, all unique compared to each other, and overall all worth playing if you have any interest in them.

I want to write more, but I'm scared the site's gonna be taken down and minute. I miss you guys :(
