Another thoroughly-enjoyable MK story mode. I can't pretend the stories they tell are anything special, but there's really nothing like them in fighting games, and I think they stand up to more video game stories than I'd probably like to admit. Silly, and over the top, but good fun nonetheless!

Between the Towers and the Krypt, I didn't even get around to the story until this week. And I haven't stepped online at all yet. Safe to say there's plenty to do in MK11, whatever type of fighting game you're after.

As seems to happen far too often in game development, there are allegations about working conditions at NetherRealm Studios. That obviously takes the shine off how much I've otherwise been enjoying the game. I can only hope that NetherRealm have the sense to be embarrassed by the reports and actually make some changes.

Still worthwhile even in this mode although initially it seems far too easy the later bosses were still a challenge (at least to me). The music (if it’s your jam) is phenomenal.

Pretty much more of the same, with a story that I liked but that I know will drive Tolkien purists nuts. Can’t comment on the micro transaction stuff it had at launch, that stuff was all removed from the game a while ago, long before I started it.

I have the dlc campaigns to do as well which are apparently pretty good, as they were part of the bundle I got in the sale. But I think I’ll come back to those another time.

I must admit I'd not even heard of this game before searching 'best arcade scrolling brawlers' but it came up multiple times, and it's a fantastic looking, very enjoyable Capcom romp based on the comic character. Big chunky graphics, good variety of weapons and moves, this was a lot of fun. Looking online it appears to have had a Megadrive port released to mixed reviews, but the arcade version is great. Give it a try if you can.

Rage 2. It's okay, I enjoyed it but doesn't quite live up to Bethesda's other FPS games of late.

That's a shame!
I was hoping RAGE 2 would fill the Borderlands-shaped hole in my gaming life. Sadly, from everything I've seen/heard, I get the impression that the shooting is fun, but the world and story let the side down. On that basis, I'll wait for DOOM Eternal to get my tight, fast id FPS, and look elsewhere for something looty and spacious.

27th Jan - Captain Toad Treasure Tracker (Switch)
1st Feb - New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe (Switch)
9th Mar - Crackdown 3 (Xbox One X)
6th May - Mortal Kombat 11: Story Mode (PS4 Pro)
12th May - God Of War '18 (PS4 Pro)
19th May - Horizon Zero Dawn (PS4 Pro)

I'm slowly but surely working through the pile of games I started but never went back to, and Horizon Zero Dawn is the latest of those that I finished.

Not the best game in the world, but I did have a fair amount of fun with it. Taking down the larger robots is very gratifying, and the weapons at your disposal to do so gives you may options and techniques to play with.

As is standard with open world games, once done you're given the option to go back into the world and polish off all the side quests and find the hidden collectables you missed, but I can't see me doing that.

On the whole it was fun, and looked really good in 4K. Well worth a play if you enjoy your action, open world adventures.
