    Enjoy it. Yakuza 4 is one of the best in the series.

    Recently downloaded Tomb Raider II from the Play Store. Certainly brings back some good memories.

    Okay, I finished Yakuza 4 and I'm definitely on board with the series now. The game is a very unique mixture of melodrama, over the top fights and some wacky stuff and I love it. The one problem I had with it is that the combat, while fun, is kinda clunky. It's not a problem when fighting some street punks but there were a few more difficult encounters that almost drove me crazy. Particularly the final boss with Tanimura was just fucking awful. Who thought this was a good idea? One guy shoots at me every two seconds, preventing me from doing a combo, while ten other guys attack at once stunlocking me to death. I only managed to beat him by exploiting one move's invincibility.

    I think I recall the same problems in the final boss fight. That's probably one area Yakuza tends to fall down in. They can be pretty epic leading up to the fights and even during, but same cheap crap does ruin it and makes things extremely difficult. The stiff running movement always grated on me too. Yakuza 0 sounds awesome, so I hope some of the complaints were fixed up in that. Just waiting for a price drop and I'll jump on board with it.

    Destiny(It's eaten half a year of my life...and I'm just about done with it and the XBOX One for that matter.)

    Otherwise, Starcraft I and Warcraft II are taking my attention right now.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Started it this week after I rescued the kids' Wii U from the cats, and it is every bit as good as advertised.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

    I'm completely hooked and can't stop playing. Great game. Bought it on launch day alongside the Nintendo Switch.

    Haven't been so obsessed and absorbed into a game like this in a long time. Every waking minute I want to be playing this thing.

    Also been dabbing in another Switch title, VOEZ, a lovely little rhythm game.

    Now that I've finished all the new games that've come out so far, I'm going to start getting back into my video game backlog. Starting with Chrono Trigger, still haven't played this despite friends hounding me for years to give it a chance.

    After having the put the game in the back for so long, I finally finshed Metal Gear Solid, it´s strange that I´ve played all the other Solid games but never did it with the first (technically third) game in the series.

    A small review about the game:
    Looking at when this game was released (1998) you can clearly see how this game reinforced the concept of cinematic storytelling in videogames with the usage of cutscenes and voice acting and also allow to kickstart stelth games as successfull mainstream games.
    This also brough the terrible over reliance of cutscenes as a storytelling tool...there´s a lot of it in the game, practically the whole game has a (almost) 6:4 ratio of cutscene and gameplay.

    I will say that out of all the games in the seires, this one has aged the worst of them, mostly from a gameplay and level design point of view, the game feels like 2D game design philosophy applied in a 3D game with very mixed and at times awful results. Another flaw the game has is that it´s gameplay is not well suited for combat, you might be asking "why would the combat have to be good in a stealth game?", that´s true a stealth game is not action one but here is the problem; the game forces you into combat situations! The game forces you bumping into enemies that will shoot you to death as well as Snake being an incompetent at aiming with his guns. This is problem is not isolated to this game though, the others faced the same problem with Metal Gear Solid 2 being the only one actually pulled off this dick move with great and meaningful effect.

    Final thing to say is that Psycho-Mantis is one the most ingenious and mindblowing designed boss fight in a videogame (though I´d say Kojima topped him with The End in Metal Gear Solid 3)
