    Just starting WoC.

    I'll give Thomas Covanant a break because so far there's a lot of travelling across the countryside and it's not gripping me.

    Finished Project Hail Mary.

    Good book, very similar to The Martian in many ways. It got a bit heavy with the problem solving towards the end - and I would have preferred it to have ended about a chapter earlier than it did, but if you liked The Martian then you'll enjoy this one.

    Reading Lord Fouls Bane now. Liked the start - then it got weird, then it got dark, and now it's a more familiar 'we're off on a quest' story but with a dubious main character.

    Kena is continuing to deliver.

    Spent way longer than was reasonable on the first major boss - honestly, from the look of it I wasn't expecting to have a Souls-like battle, but there are definite similarities.

    The whole rampaging angry lost-souls thing is good too, and the fight intro is just so dammed pretty and creepy that I didn't want to skip it on every attempt.

    I'm really enjoying this, mainly because the devs have left out all the superfluous stuff like inventory management and needless collecting, it's just story + fighting which is just fine with me.

    Playing Kena; Bridge of Spirits, and I've got to say I'm enjoying it.

    Got it for my daughter, despite the critic's general view that it plays like a ps2 game, also because I wanted to see if it really was as pretty as the trailer.

    Both of these are true so far, but I wouldn't say the comparisons with a ps2 game have been a bad thing. I think after playing so many open world games it's weird to be channelled down a linear path quite so directly, and initially it was frustrationg to find those invisible walls that prevent exploration (which i guess is what the reviews were on about) but after a couple of boss fights that had me diving and managing the use of the rot mid-battle I've had to excuse it.

    It could maybe benefit from not being quite so cutesie, the rot spirits especially could be toned down from Minion to Sootballs, or be more like those spirits from Princess Monoke, but the actual lost souls in the forest are violent and sad and creepy enough to make up.

    I had to take over from my daughter to help in a boss battle, but I'm definitely going to start my own playthrough.
