Opposite for me.

Would love to see some 'proper' 3D platformers/adventures though, á la DK64, Banjo Kazooie, Rocket: Robot on Wheels, etc. :wub:

eBay, CeX or Cash Generators?

Yep...apart from eBay.

I always enjoyed playing Mario 64 but Galaxy never stood out to me as the best thing since sliced bread. I absolutely loved playing through 3D World so maybe my gaming tastes just lulled around the time of Galaxy.

I hope that we get a 3D World 2 or some sort of new Mario platformer for the Wii U in the next year or so. Thankfully, I still haven't played Galaxy 2 so I'll fire that up on Dolphin soon.

SM64 was a revolution in gaming, playing it back then was an amazing experience.

You will love Galaxy 2.

GTA: San Andreas

Damn this is strawberry floating me off.

There might be the odd good mission, but they're far outweighed by some really frustrating/boring missions. Then if you die on one of them, the 'mission checkpoint' system actually does strawberry float all and still results in you having to play through the entire mission again, including the tedious 'drive to x to pick up y, then you can actually start the mission' bits. Why can it cut that crap out when I've done it once?

There are also some generally frustrating elements; the weapon/targeting system is awful, some of the cars handle like absolute gooseberry fool and just clipping a wall or lamppost will send the car flipping all over the place, and on a couple of occasions I've been killed, have gone back to Grove St to attempt a mission again, and a group of Ballas is right outside my house and they kill me straight away. Ugh, so many annoying things in the game.

Just started Ys: Celceta on Vita. Initial impressions are that it is visually very fugly, and very wordy. But I've got through the tutorial bit in the mine at the start and am about to go out and explore, so I hope I'm left to get on with it a bit now instead of being stopped for dialog every few steps.

The fighting mechanics at least felt quite decent, so I'm hopeful of being able to get into it a bit more.

Hyrule Warriors
I need to start checking my Wii U daily logs because I just know I have put a stupid amount of time into this game over the last week, 3-5 hours a day on average I'm sure. It's just got so much content, it's going to be a long time before I need to buy any of the DLC.

Bunch of stuff really.

Lego Marvel [360] It's Lego. It's Marvel. Both of best worlds yes. Almost done with main story levels, but will aim for 100% - going to take a while considering I only play it till I get bit fed up.

The Binding of Issac: Rebirth [PC] I know I've said it before, but I really love this. I never got on with original at all but this feels more smooth (granted, it's 60FPS while flash is 30fps) and it looks much better. Really glad I bothered to buy it. Still stink at it though but don't mind dying so much.

Orcs Must Die! [PC] I figured I'd start playing it properly so I did. Turns out I lack imaginative when it comes to kill orcs... I tend to abuse archers as well use wall arrows / floor spikes as well mowing them down with crossbow. I did have laugh when I used these traps that makes them go up into air, and fall into acid pool but yeah, I just pretty much stick to same thing. Probably will change though considering I just got to Act II.

Tiny & Big: Grandpa's Leftovers [PC] I like it, although I stink at it.... I've been dying so many times and I kept missing collections. strawberry float sake, ah well - could always replay it but I'll focus on beating it, which doesn't seem long game considering I'm now on Level 4 (I think?) out of Level 6.

Also playing through Borderlands 1 [PC] with two to three friends from time to time. Great stuff, though we can't wait till we've moved to BL2 tbh.

I've taken a break from this game but I get what you are talking about :lol:

I had about 35 hours on it and I have no doubt I will return when the next DLC hits. I haven't even done the first adventure mode map yet, never mind the Master Quest one. I kinda burnt out on the Legend Mode, but the Adventure mode is just too awesome.

Then it wouldn't have worked anywhere near as well (if at all) in co-op, which is the only way to play 3D World.

Continuing my joyless adventure through online MP, I've been playing quite a bit of CoD Advanced Warfare (PS4 version) this weekend. For all its manic pace and twitchy gameplay it's definitely one of the easier online MP games I've sampled. And, shockingly, I've been mainly playing this properly online against real players. Making progress in the rankings and the unlocks seems to be fairly trouble-free (at least, at these early stages, I suppose). That's a bit of a surprise. Is it good news for me and bad news for the 'serious' online players? Is the MP game too easy for them? I've watched a few Playstation Live streams and even the 'experts' seem to be dying an awful lot (and often getting quite antsy about it, lol). Amazingly, I even won us a three-round match of Capture The Flag this afternoon and I was by far the lowest ranked, least experienced online gamer there. Funny how that goes (I have the game footage to prove it, if anyone's interested).

Also this weekend, I've spent a fair amount of time with Battlefield 4 (PS4 version) - my unloved, red-haired stepchild of a game. I decided it was high time I explored all that multi-gigabyte Season Pass content. I've risen to Level 25 (a Sergeant Class V, I think) and unlocked at least half of all the various bits and bobs for each class along the way. Yes, I died an awful lot. Such a miserable affair, although it has to be said the sheer mayhem of 64 players on maps like Operation Metro, Pearl Market and Operation Locker does make things quite fraught and random at times. Occasional, brief flashes of fun might even have been detected in between merciless headshots I seemed always to be on the receiving end of. Is it fair to say that playing as a sniper is a coward's way out? Me, I just grab a SMG and leg it straight into the action - what will be, will be, etc. Playing with a sniper rifle seems a bit like opting for the relative safety of ranged combat over the blood and gristle of getting stuck in to the centre of things. If that's the case, Battlefield 4 is very over-represented in the cowards' department - they are quite literally everywhere. All the time.

I still don't enjoy online gaming in the least; seems to me to be a fairly equal mixture of frustration, anxiety, panic and unintentional comedy (or should that be pathos?). How anyone could do this quite as determinedly and with such dedication as - quite clearly - so many do is quite beyond me. Guess I'll never be a 'true' gamer. :(

Speaking of which, Killzone Shadow Fall (PS4) quietly received yet another free MP map ('Academy') at some point last week (something I only discovered on firing up the game for a quick play against the excellent AI bots yesterday). The game now boasts 17 glorious MP maps with all modes and (permanent) challenge progression, XP and gear unlocks enabled for offline bot play.

All in all in a very multiplayer-centric weekend was had. But not necessarily always enjoyed. ;)

I've gotten totally hooked on Hatsune Miku. Bought the first Project Diva F game for Vita on sale a few weeks ago, and put over 25 hours into it. The music has really grown on me, and gets stuck in my head constantly. Got Excellent or Perfect on all songs in easy difficulty and am working through Normal. I bought the DLC songs and I've pre-ordered the 2nd game (out in a few weeks). I even downloaded one of her concerts. Much to my wife's bemusement.

Any other fans? I know Stay Dead collects the figures.

Playing through How to Survive on PC.

It ain't bad. Enjoying it so far, might get DLC when it's on sale next time.

Took an evening away from Codies & their raging little chubby for gymkhana & have been playing Split Second. Like a breath of fresh air, just what I needed I think.

Alien Isolation. I was enjoying this to begin with but 6 chapters in I'm starting to get a bit tired of the random, nigh unavoidable deaths.

The Swapper (PC)

It's brilliant, this. The puzzles are difficult but more manageable for me - just how I like them. Pulling off swapping while jumping and other stuff is amaze balls :wub:
