Pokémon Let’s Go is a streamlined Pokémon experience, merging elements of Pokémon Go with Pokémon Yellow. It’s not going to be for everyone, but I must confess I’ve not been this into a Pokémon game since Pokémon Red, way back when I was a ruddy boy.

Just a shame the motion controls Nintendo forced in wreck it for a lot of people.

Fallout 76 – Nuclear Waste (Jimpressions)

It never seemed likely that Bethesda was capable of handling an online Fallout game, and the dreadful mess that is Fallout 76 only validates one’s cynicism. Which is fine, because Fallout 76 is, itself, a cynical game.

A cynical game that barely works.

Lifeless, archaic, and featuring a totally mangled VATS system, this desperate trip on the Live Services bandwagon is an utter waste of time.

The Quiet Man – Pretentious Broken Garbage (Jimpressions)

The Quiet Man was quietly squirted out by Square Enix with little fanfare after it was shown off at E3. Why the sudden desire to keep it on the down low? Because it’s awful, that’s why.

Nonsensical, ugly, broken, and often hilariously incompetent, The Quiet Man is confusing gibberish from beginning to end. Speaking of the end… hoo boy!

On Halloween morning, Toby Fox gave Delta Rune away for free under the guise of a survey. A substantial followup to Undertale, this is a full-fledged game that’s just been handed to people gratis.

You sly Fox, you, you’ve gone and delivered an excellent game, and all we had to do was download it (and enter into a tacit agreement not to spoil anything for 24 hours, which many of us promptly ignored).

Dark Souls Remastered [Nintendo Switch] – The Tale Of Jeff (Jimpressions)

Dark Souls Remastered finally came out for Nintendo Switch, and it’s… okay. I’m not insulted by the graphics or audio because I expected worse, but they’re definitely a step back compared to other versions.

Still, I got my handheld Dark Souls, even if I don’t see quite so many players to enjoy it with.
