Not Tonight (PC)

I've been plugging this a bit on Discord already but for the unaware;

Person of European Heritage #112: Welcome to Relocation Block B, your new home. Your designated role is 'Bouncer'. Work hard, stay out of trouble, and we might let you stay in the UK.

In an alternative Britain where Brexit talks have collapsed, an extreme far-right government has taken power. Citizens of European heritage have been rounded up and exiled. Forced out of your previous life, you find yourself in the midst of a booming gig economy, fighting to scrape by and return to the city you call home.

Not Tonight is a post-Brexit management game, fusing a time-pressure RPG with a politically charged story where every decision matters. Will you join the resistance and fight the regime -- or keep your head down and hope that one day this will all be a distant memory?


and it's fantastic, although genuinely <censored> worrying in places. Would highly recommend picking it up :)

The lone and level sands stretch far away.

Both games finished. All achievements obtained.

I only ever played Shenmue 2 a couple of times before we (stupidly) got rid of the Dreamcast back in the day and whilst I've always loved both games dearly (and when I speak of "Shenmue" being one of my top 5 games of all time I'm counting both games as one), Shenmue 1 was always the game I had a soft spot for. That's probably because it left such a big impression on me (my brother too) and I played it to death as a kid, but after playing them back-to-back with this re-release (how I suggest you guys play them too) if I had to pick a favourite right now it would have to be Shenmue 2. As great as 1 is I do feel that 2 improves on it in many ways.

Magnificent. It has been really wonderful getting to experience these games again after all this time and after waiting 17+ years we're finally going to see the story continued with Shenmue 3 next year! (or maybe the year after if it gets delayed, which I'd be fine with). I can't even begin to tell you how happy & excited that makes me feel.

I've recommended a handful of games already this year but there is no other game on that list more deserving of a purchase & to be given a chance than Shenmue I & II now that we've finally been given this re-release. Please pick them up, they're only 20 quid <3 :)

Don't get me wrong as this was still a great game despite me still thinking the Arkham games were better and seeing the hype, reviews & just becoming the fastest selling game of 2018 so far (not surprising given how huge the IP is) I may be in a minority here when I say this but I do think the game is a tad overrated. Honestly, as much as I enjoyed this (and I really did - enough to Platinum it. The combat & traversal being as good as they are have a lot to do with that) it wouldn't even be a GOTY contender for me if I'm honest. To each their own though! I do hope they do another one :)

Shenmue I & II aside (due to my bias lol), God of War is still the game to beat for me this year. By a long way.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is up next :)
