Play Want Bin Expense: 2017-05-30

No YOU’RE a day late. Also, bank holiday.

That’s right, because I’m counting the Bank Holiday Monday as last week. No, I didn’t do that last time. No, I don’t care what you think.

Play

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate (PS4)
One day, I will be rid of this game, but not just yet. The other night I spent two whole hours searching for just a single chest in the World War I area of the map. Two hours. To find one chest. Ubi are really pushing the limits of fun there, I think. I’ve also finished all the Karl Marx missions. The final one of those can do one though. You have to kidnap four guys without the others seeing you. Only two of them are facing each other. If either spots you, Marx is shot. In the end I just killed them all from the rooftops, and that seemed to work.

Lego City Undercover (Switch)
Such a great game. One of my favourite bits was enduring all the terrible Arnold Schwarzenegger film reference puns in the construction site level. Some incredible levels of punnery on show there. Especially the Conan one. Additionally, it’s hard to understate just how much two player mode adds to the game, even if it is a bit shoehorned in and makes no sense in terms of the story.

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons (3DS)
With five dungeons complete, I’m past the half-way point now. Note to self (and anyone else who intends to play this or Oracle of Ages): don’t stop playing. Take a few days off, and you’ll be totally lost. I did that, and had to use a guide to figure out just what the hell I’d been doing last time. Back on track now though.

Disgaea 5 (Demo) (Switch)
Look. The gameplay is just fine. It’s a polished turn based SRPG and from what I can see there’s nothing there to break it. I’d definitely enjoy it. But, and I’m frankly surprised at myself for saying this, the art style is terrible. Cutscenes and profile art is no issue, but the characters in the game look and act like a nasty Flash game. It just doesn’t fit. It shouldn’t matter, especially to me, but I can’t get past it.

Want

Sonic Mania (Switch), of course. But straight out of nowhere comes Golf Story (Switch) which looks just like a Mario-less GBA Mario Golf might. And GBA Mario Golf is incredible.

Bin

Hands. You read my post about being shocked with electricity several hundred times, right? That, then.

Also Disgaea’s art style.
