After giving The Outer Worlds one more shot a while ago (and decided that it just wasn’t for me. It’s a game that pretending to be an rpg, but you have your gun out all the time to stick it in everyone’s face.), I was deciding upon a new PS4 game to get into. I’ve always wanted to give Baldur’s Gate another shot because I’ve always regretted that I didn’t play it back when it first came out. At the time I didn’t much care for the isometric perspective and decided I would rather spent my time on 3D first person rpg’s.
I did give it a shot after a few years, but didn’t get very far. And more recently, I played the enhanced version for a couple of days. But now I’m very determined to finally get through it. It also comes with the expansion Tales of the Sword Coast and with Siege of Dragonspear, a game that I was tempted to buy the BIG box release of a while ago. And let’s not forget the sequel, Baldur’s Gate II. This game will probably not leave the side of my PlayStation for the rest of the year.
The disc will have to come out of the console though, because I also got two other games: Yooka-Laylee and Putty Squad.
Yooka-Laylee is a game that I have already played as digital download. I liked the early stages, because of it being a homage to Banjo-Kazooie. After a while it’s shortcomings became to obvious and I’m probably not going to play a lot more of the game. It is nice to add it to my physical games collection though.
Putty Squad has been on my radar for some time now although I was hesitant about getting it. I loved the original Putty on Amiga. And I got the big box version of it despite being very selective about getting big box platform games. I’ve played a little bit of Putty Squad in the past and I know that I don’t like it as much as the original Putty. But it is nice to have it in my collection. It fits right in with games like Pang Adventures and Toki.
