Hey I completed more games!
I know I haven't updated this list since the first time but I've fallen into a pit of multiplayer games including Smite and World of Warcraft, which have taken up most of my time. I've managed to complete a fair amount of games with most being Games with Gold Titles but it's worth something. For now let's just into my journey of trying to finish my backlog this year

Forza Horizon 3
I honestly don't know what more can be said about this game or this series in general. I've never been big into racing games but the Forza series is something magical that everybody needs to at least try at some point in their gaming career. Controls are perfect, visually stunning scenery, and the ability to have whatever music you want via the Groove music app the game is a fantastic package.

Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime
This was something I didn't really know a lot about going into other besides the fact it was a big co-op game. Sadly for me I played it by myself which I feel took some of the charm it had to offer as I found myself rushing through or struggling beyond what I wanted just to stay alive as I singlehandedly piloted my ship through space. Mechanics are super fun and if you have a significant other or someone to play with I would recommend to at least check this title out.

Kingdom Hearts 2.8
Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts where to begin. Possibly my most loved series ever and something I am starting to lose faith in. I have bought all of the remasters so far, every handheld game, every re-issuse of every game and yet here we are still waiting on KH3 to be released. I was hoping this would be something worthwhile to hold the fans over,instead we were met with a very short (I beat it in about 2 hours) experience that I feel was almost just a cash grab for the time being. If you're a big fan wait till this is on sale if not just don't worry about picking it up at all.

Star Wars The Force Unleashed
The Force Unleashed was something I started way back when it came out and never got around to finishing so when it became a Games with Gold Title figured there wasn't a better time to get at it. Being such an old game in my opinion it doesn't really hold up after all these years. Held back by numerous tropes from the days of old that just end up holding the game back from being something that could've been great years down the road

Halo Wars
Earlier this year I was forced to get a new Xbox One(surprise) and with it I got the deluxe edition of Halo Wars 2 that came with the remaster of the first game in the series. I actually wasn't able to even beat this game as I gave up and said I've had enough just over the halfway mark. Nothing really seemed to click with me that made me want to continue the game. I can see where people enjoyed it back in the day but trying to beat it now felt more like a chore rather than an enjoyable experience.

Yooka-Laylee Review
What happens when you take some of the greatest development team ever to grace our industry and combine that with a game that is so jam packed with nostalgia and love for a genre that has all but gone dark? A nice gem that takes everything from collectathon games of years past and puts them into a nice little present that I think will do a fine job at bringing those old fans back and opening the doors to a whole new audience.

If you grew up with games there is a very very high chance you have played a game that the fine people at the newly founded Playtonic Games has previously had their hands on. Everything from Diddy Kong Racing, Banjo-Kazooie, Conker's Bad Fur Day, and all the way to Killer Instinct these guys have had a hand in. When Rare was bought out by Microsoft most of the core original team slowly departed as years went on but, after seeing the types of games they loved to make all but disappear they decided to take things into their own hands. After getting one of the highest crowdfunded projects ever on Kickstarter it was just a matter of time before Yooka-Laylee was in our hands.

As soon as you begin the game and are in the starting menus you can see the direct reference to their previous work (most notably Banjo-Kazooie) from the reminiscent but yet new tunes from Grant Kirkhope,to the google eyes put on absolutely everything they could. I was hit with a wave of emotion and instantly brought back to my childhood exploring these big open worlds and being introduced to some of the most memorable moments I still hold dear. Before digging into this game I should probably note here that I will probably be extremely biased towards this game and Playtonic in general just from the younger years they gave to me.

Yooka-Laylee follows the story of a chameleon and a bat named rightfully Yooka and Laylee respectfully. The duo ventures from the safety of their home, Shipwreck Creek and into the corporate building of Hivory Towers ran by Capital B who is out to collect all of the worlds books for himself to turn into profit. Our heroic duo search throughout the towers to find things called Grand Tomes, your entry-point into the 5 worlds of the game to collect Pagies. Pagies allow you to open up future Grand Tomes to learn new moves that let you traverse farther towards Capital B. Each world you come across features a plethora of activities and characters to meet in their beautifully crafted worlds. After you collect enough Pagies you are able to expand the worlds often doubling their size and opening up whole new sections full of collectables, thats not saying you will be able to 100% a world as parts are still often inaccessible without later moves and abilities you will purchase will Quills from your good ol' pal Trowzer the Snake.

The actual gameplay of Yooka-Laylee has you using the duo to traverse the world by rolling around on-top of Yooka like a ball or floating around through the air holding onto Laylee for dear life. You will come across many characters that force you to use a mix of all of your abilities to earn a pagie from them, even the indie hero Shovel Knight makes a couple brief cameos where he needs your help to find lost treasure. Oh by the way you remember those good old mine cart levels from Donkey Kong Country back in the day? Good, because they make a return here where you take a trip throughout the levels riding your new friend Kartos collecting gems and maybe even fighting a boss here or there.

Overall Yooka-Laylee is one of the greatest experiences and frankly the offspring of something I never thought we'd see again. Packed to them brim with charm and a loving cast of iconic characters you can't help but to stop and awe at this game when you see it. When Playtonic promised to bring back the N64 era platformer they did it with the utmost respect. I strongly urge everybody to at least give this game a chance. Who knows this could be just the thing we needed to start a surge of N64 style platformers from indie devs.
