Review: Hearts of Stone Expansion, Witcher 3 PS4

Leave a comment

I didn’t start playing the Witcher until over a year after it came out, though I’d bought it much earlier. I finished the game and started a second play through almost immediately with both expansions installed. I’ve since finished my second play through and the ‘Hearts of Stone’ and ‘Blood and Wine’ expansions.

Hearts of Stone takes place mostly in Oxenfurt. There’s a main quest, a few new side-missions, new equipment, gwent cards and a new merchant. Blood and Wine adds a lot more content, with a whole new area to explore. Hearts of Stone is smaller, but the story is tight and compelling. They’re both so different I don’t know which one I prefer.

Review: ‘Pokemon Moon’

1 Comment

I haven’t played a Pokemon game since Sapphire, so it’s been a while. I mainly decided to pick up Pokemon Moon since a friend was getting Sun and wanted someone to trade with. I was pleasantly surprised by some of the changes to the game. The Island Challenge feels just different enough from battling gym leaders to make the game feel new, and it felt more like an adventure with a story than other games.

Stardew Valley

1 Comment

Stardew Valley is a PC farming simulation game, similar in style to Harvest Moon. I came to the game late, and as a result had heard lots about it before playing it. In a way, this led to some disappointments, as I was expecting something miles ahead of Harvest Moon. In the end, I still enjoyed it. There are parts of it I like more than Harvest Moon, parts of Harvest moon I enjoy more, and parts of Rune of Factory I prefer. It’s a good game for anyone who enjoys the Harvest Moon games, though I doubt it would convince many people who dislike Harvest Moon.

‘Fire Emblem Fates – Conquest’ on 3DS

1 Comment

Fire Emblem Fates comes in 3 parts – Conquest, Birthright and Revelations. The first 6 chapters are shared, and then you need to pick: will you return to the family that kidnapped you and raised you, or the family of your birth?

I started with Conquest, which was described as the hard one. I’ve just finished Birthright and Revelations. I played all games on hard and I can say, Birthright and Revelations on hard are walk in the park compared to Conquest on hard.

Review: Zelda – Majora’s Mask for 3DS

1 Comment

I recently completed ‘Zelda: Majora’s Mask’ for 3DS. I briefly played the N64 version at a friend’s house when I was a kid, but I don’t really remember it. So I’m going to review the game as it stands now, without comparing it to the original version. Overall, I really enjoyed the game.There’s a lot to do and explore, and heaps of sidequests. There’s plenty of masks to collect, most of which are optional, but will help with the main quest. The 3-day limitation made the game feel different to other Zelda games. It did affect how I played the game and how willing I was to explore. Given that, I would suggest considering how you react to real or perceived time pressure before playing it.

Review: Story of Seasons for 3DS

Leave a comment

So I haven’t finished Story of Seasons yet but I’ve put over 100 hours in so I figure that’s enough to review it! Story of Seasons is the latest Harvest Moon game (though it isn’t called Harvest Moon) for the Nintendo 3DS. It has all the features you’d except: crops, animals, fishing, mining, marriage. It’s mainly distinguished from its predecessors by the trading depot, where other countries will come to trade with you. You’ll unlock more countries as you ship more items. The game is fun and addictive and there’s heaps to do – as I said, I haven’t completed it yet.

Review: The Banner Saga

Leave a comment

‘The Banner Saga’ is a viking inspired turn-based role playing game with beautiful visuals and an engaging combat system. I found the plot was slow to get started, and the game ended abruptly and a bit unsatisfactorily. Overall, I’m not entirely sure what to make of it.
