I seemed to cover an awful lot of ground this week; though it was at my usual pace of an article a day, it certainly felt as if I covered more than usual. So I wouldn’t blame you if you missed anything; it seems to me that it’s a good idea take a look at what I wrote about over the last seven days.
I was incredibly sceptical about Mackenzie Crook’s Worzel Gummidge; I needn’t have been worried. Rarely has the beloved scarecrow been in safer hands. A pleasant surprise and an absolutely lovely few hours of television.
Though I’ll end up playing as many, if not more, games in 2020 as I did in 2019, there’s two games in particular that have me especially excited – Cyberpunk 2077 and Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Clearly they’re going to be very different but – hopefully – equally brilliant titles, albeit for different reasons.
I really wanted to like The Muddles. Despite a cute concept and some lovely design – including an adorable little storybook included in the box – it’s an unfortunately dull and half-baked game.
I enjoyed the original edition of The Adventures of Elena Temple when I played – and reviewed – it on Switch last year. It’s no surprise that I also enjoyed the Definitive Edition, which I’ve recently been playing on Xbox One. I love the faux history of the game and the visual gimmick of playing on retro hardware – and the game itself is a good, albeit challenging, experience.
I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for The Addams Family and their instantly recognisable theme tune, so I was looking forward to their latest incarnation, which features some fantastic talent in the cast. Sadly, the below par animation and uninteresting script mean that it’s a dull, completely unsatisfying movie. Very disappointing.
What a time to be alive. I’ve now written about Wanking Simulator twice; there’s now a demo available so you can give it a go for yourself, if you really want to.
Another sadly disappointing experience, Down to Hell has a decent enough visual aesthetic but the game itself is a complete letdown. It’s a shame – and feels like a wasted opportunity.
So there we are. Another week down – and if I can maintain my current schedule of an article a day, in less than 100 days I’ll have written every day for a whole year. Can I make it? Stick around and let’s find out together!
