You know when you think it’s Tuesday, but the week has already gone?

Yep, no trying to make a joke from the game titles this week.  I looked up from lunch on Monday, and it was Friday.  It was one of those weeks.

So while I didn’t get to play much, what I did get to play was amazing!

Chronicles of Crime

So this one is a little bit of a cheat this week.  I was fully intending to play along on games night, but I stopped.

I was teaching Harls to play for the first time, and giving Alpal a recap as it had been a while.  As for most games like this, I taught the basics and let them play through the tutorial.

Watching them play, I realised just how much I remembered from my only playthrough of the tutorial, so I withdrew from the game.  Everyone else enjoyed which is what you really want, but I can’t wait for the next time we play so I can join in again 😀

Starting to hit retail stores, I can't wait to share more Chronicles of Crime with everyone!

Super Mario Odyssey

I was worried about picking up Super Mario Odyssey again, as it has been about a month since I picked it up.  And I had never played it in handheld mode.  But it was something to play while Rabbit and I were relaxing on the couch, and I figured worst case I just don’t save.

These concerns turned out to be unfounded.  I knew what I was doing objective wise, a quick perusal of the controls reminded me how to play, and I was collecting moons again within a few minutes.

I didn’t make too much headway, but I collected enough moons to leave the Luncheon Kingdom, but I will beat the bird boss first 🙂

To leave a game alone for a month and then almost clear a world is just what you want in a game like this

Kingdom Hearts 3

Well, I don’t know how much longer I will be including Kingdom Hearts 3 on the last week’s gaming news.  After 57:09 according to my save, I have attained the Platinum trophy 😀

For trophy hunters, the Platinum has been made easier in this version compared to the re-released 1.5 and 2.5 versions.  There is still a grind, but you no longer have to finish the game on proud mode for example.  You also don’t have to completely 100% everything about the game.  I have only completed about 75% of the gummi ship challenges for example.

One of the post game activities was completing recipes with Little Chef

But the story has been explored.  I have seen all of the endings, read all of the notes, and now the gameplay challenge is before me.  I will probably put that off though, as I need to do a Proud Mode run of Kingdom Hearts 1.5 and 2.5.  I think for all three games, a single run through the entire numbered series on proud will be a suitable goodbye 🙂

What about you?  I hope you got some great games in.  Or are you looking forward to a new one?  Let me know!  Shout out on Facebook or @JohnHQLD me on Twitter!

Until tomorrow,
