Thought I had done the worst gymkhana challenge in Dirt 3 yet ( gymkhana sprint 2) but Codemasters be like: ''THINK AGAIN'' little bitch. Your torment hasn't even begun :nod:

And I'm like Clay Davis

http://youtu.be/l1dnqKGuezo

Basically I'm racing against Santa in a canoe boat down a slope, yet for some reason, my fat car is bouncing all over the place like a fat drunken telly tubby.
Hang on a minute I thought, this happened on top gear yet their car wasn't bouncing the strawberry float around like mine, they must of put slicks on mine or something because DAAAAAYUUUUUM I can't control this mummy strawberry floater.
Where am I now?. Oh I've bounced off into the hedge like a dirty peado waiting outside a school.

Oi, next time how about give a car that isn't as unstable as an old persons hips.

Zelda Wind Waker - I had forgotten so much of this wonderful games and am effectively on to the second part. Looking to get through a lot of the sidequests before I get back to the main quest. The graphics in 1080P are absolutely brilliant and I haven't enjoyed a game like this for a long while - so well made and the additions such as the swift sail and tingle bottles are a nice touch.

The Last of Us Remastered - A bit different from what I thought the game was all about and feels like this is the direction the Resident Evil games should have gone to. So far impressed by the story telling and the visuals are great. The 30fps mode gives me motion sickness - never experienced it in a videogame, it really is a weird feeling.

So after purchasing it 2 days ago, I've already played 13 hours of Rogue Legacy :slol:

I genuinely can't remember the last time a game gripped me like this. I don't even notice the time passing me by.

I need to get back to that, what I played of the HD remaster was lovely but unfortunately I really regretted picking hero mode; the lack of recovery hearts made the gameplay more a chore than a challenge. Shame as the original difficulty is too easy, so I'd probably prefer a happy medium between the two!

I love the sidequests in WW too, I rarely stay focused on the main quest because exploring the oceans and finding new islands is too much fun :mrgreen:

Oh yes it is a lot of fun. It's a real pleasure just getting to every square and filling in my map - just one to go! Got a few surprise hearts along the way, along with taking part in auctions and visiting Tingle Island!

I would say this was probably 2 main dungeons from being the best Zelda ever made - OOT still holds that accolade imo and Twilight Princess is the most 'full' in terms of main quests, but lacks the character and atmosphere of the MM, OOT and WW.

Would love a remaster of Skyward Sword and reckon we might get it right at the end of the Wii U's lifespan along with Super Mario Sunshine as I doubt Nintendo will invest heavily in the console. They are clearly focusing on maximising their revenue streams at this point and cutting costs, clearly shown by their Amiibo range, quick turnaround in smaller games and the New 3DS.

Will get back to WW later, but have Bayonetta 2, which I have still not started and then GTA5 and possibly Far Cry 4 next week.

PES 2015 will also take up a lot of my time - best footie game since PES 5/6 and by a long way too!

I'm doing my second play through of The Wonderful 101. Diplomacy has failed! Team, Unite up!

I've played a little bit of the Mario Kart 8 DLC. The mute city track is amazing. They added some F-Zero sound effects and music. So good.

Had a quick blast of of Contrast last night as I had it sat on my PS4 after getting it free on PS+, seems fun but I get the impression it will be really short. Not sure what the story is all about but from the tone of the collectibles I reckon

Been wasting my day trying to get the platinum medal on the bobsleigh challenge in Dirt 3, I also watched the top gear race & Amy did it in 61 seconds. So technically Codemasters, that 57 seconds you put down is wrong.

In future, pay attention.

why did I start path of exile at like 2am :fp:

Just called it night there. So addictive, Lv12 Ranger at the moment and I'm loving it. Also playing Spiral Knights because why not, seems it's more manageable this time - doesn't require energy to go through the game normally, thank god.

Halo MCC. Nostalgia at its best :wub:

From the MP games with the guys on here to replaying any mission I like in whatever order I like. If they strawberry floating hurry up and sort the mess out that is matchmaking it'll be like the perfect package.

Chief :wub:

Fabian Delph is a banana split.

After a little time away from Alien Isolation I got back into it today and completed chapters 8, 9 and 10. Playing this with a headset on is pretty nerve racking stuff. I'm too much of a pussy to go all the way and play with the mic active too however :dread:

GTA: San Andreas

I’m putting a lot of time into this. Enjoying it for the most part – lots to do, decent characters, missions are enjoyable on the whole.

When it’s shitty though, it’s really shitty – some terrible missions, long tedious drives across the map required, dodgy aiming/targeting, the strawberry floating mobile phone ringing all the time, dumb AI, and the useless mission checkpoint system.

Definitely intend on seeing it through to the end (story wise, at least) but there are so many things that could have been improved, and stop it being really enjoyable.

CoD: AW (sp)
Shockingly not gooseberry fool. Same old gameplay, but some fun scenarios and this time around the at least let you drive in the vehicle sections.

AC:U
Again, nowhere near as gooseberry fool as the internet hate machine makes it out to be. Its the first AC game possibly since AC1 to actually make you feel like an assassin. Really enjoying it despite a few bugs

Halo MCC:
Almost too much stuff to do in terms of campaign, At the rate im playing it now I'll not have them all finished in time for Halo5. Matchmaking still borked, hope update on wednesday fixes this.

AC Unity:
Like brer said, its not that bad all things considered, I'm enyoying it hugely despite the glitches, the Nostradamus puzzles and murder solving are great little additions, it looks amazing also.

Sunset Overdrive
Due to Halo and ACreed I hadnt played this for over week and I was kicking myself lastnight as to why not. Still at this moment my GOTY, its so much fun just getting around, in fact the most fun I'd had traversing an open world in any game ever. I'm currently doing all the side missions and this is how you do side missions right, they are all fresh and inventive sometimes having multiple unfolding events, throw in the humour and its stunning stuff.

Zelda: Majora's Mask

So nice to finally get round to this, especially as it's such a delight to play :mrgreen:...well, mostly, truth be told it's actually surprisingly frustrating and stressful at times, it does earn its reputation as one of the least accessible Zeldas well. Of course though, that only makes it all the more rewarding when you actually do make progress!

I've just capped off the second dungeon and am sorting out a many of the bomber's notebook quests. Still haven't quite figured out the Anju and Kafei one, which I'm itching to due to its infamy...

What is it with me and near game breaking glitches this generation?

First I had my save corrupt in Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition 3/4 of the way through and now after a near perfect run through mission 15 of Alien Isolation, only having to drive the Alien off once mission 16 simply didn't happen I just got dumped back at a transport hub with no mission objectives.

I Googled it and to fix the problem I had to play mission 15 from scratch only this time the Alien wouldn't leave me alone and cost me a tonne of fuel keeping it at bay. Well at least I'm at mission 16 now I guess.
