Wooderon Games of the Year 2018: #5

As this post goes up, I am most likely sprawled horizontally in some kind of food related coma, dreading the fact that I’m going to have to do it all again in an hour or so. Will I be playing any games at this point, it’s certainly possible, although the whole family obligation makes that a little difficult. Maybe I should just sneak the Switch with me wherever I go over Christmas.

Wooderon Games of the Year 2018: #5

This game is one I’ve already said a fair bit about in the past couple of months. It’s one I had been looking forward to most of the year for nostalgic reasons, and while my parting feelings with the game weren’t as glowing as they had been in the beginning, I can’t deny the quality of the game itself.

#6: Forza Horizon 4

Spyro Reignited Reviews: Does Spyro 2 hold up as well as we remember it

Jumping straight from the first game into this second one, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage was the game of the trilogy I was most interested to play again. Or Gateway to Glimmer, as well called it here in the U.K. anyway.

A jump up in story, scope, accessibility and variety. Spyro 2 was one of my favourite games after it came out, playing it to 100% over and over again. I was real interested to see how the reignited set brought it to the modern era.
