I just beat the Gargoyles in Dark Souls 2. Used a club for the first time, killed them with it on my first attempt. Was a fun fight, using a different weapon was nice. I'm usually just a sword and shield guy.

I also beat the Rat Vanguard in the grave of saints, cleared the poison in Earthen Peak and found Sinners Rise. I'm making some progress with this, can't wait to get tore in over the weekend.

Just started inFamous 2nd Son. I've only played it for about 20 minutes, but graphically, quite impressive. The colours are very vibrant and the graphics are a marked improvement over last gen. So far though it doesn't feel like an inFamous game, but time will tell...

Yes?

Black Mesa. Feels really weird, kinda giving me motion sickness. And Gordon moves way too fast.

I've got back into Fez on the PS4. Despite all the baggage of how good/evil Phil Fish is or isn't, the game itself is a marvel - I love the exploration, the puzzling, the graphical design, the sound and just the sheer creativity of the game.

My brain can't understand the seemingly obtuse mapping system.. but the abundance of tiny pleasing details and the many lightbulb moments as I edge a little further into the game make it all worthwhile.

Fez - short name, classic game.

Batman: Arkham Asylum.

It's telling me i'm only 44% of the way through but I think that must include collectibles because it feels like i'm nearing the end now. I've just defeated Killer Croc and made the cure for Titan before Ivy's Plants have taken over the Batcave. Does anyone know roughly how long i've got left?

Pixel Junk Shooter Ultimate (PS4 and Vita)

Started on Vita and finally got into it after the first few stages. Had a go on PS4 version to kill a few minutes and :wub: It looks lovely for such a basic looking game.
I also noticed gameplay differences, like on this one stage I had to deal with ~50% more enemies in one section of the stage, that and their movement through water added a element of danger that isn't in the Vita version.
FYI: cloud upload option is tucked away in options.

You're not far off the end IIRC, maybe an hour or two at most. The percentage total does include collectables btw but you can continue after you've beaten the main game to find them all. They're not too difficult for the most part, there's just a few Riddler challenges that are a bit dodgy.

Killed the Lost Sinner and The Rotten in Dark Souls 2. The former was a first attempt, the latter, four or so deaths. The hardest boss so far for me.

Made it to The Old Iron Keep. This is more like it! Made quite a bit of progress with this today.

Me, too.Picked it up for £28 in CEX. I haven't played much, either, so far, but I'm not blown away by the graphics, tbh. Everyone seems to want to believe this is the best-looking PS4 game yet, but for my money Killzone still has it. I haven't seen anything else on PS4 that comes close. Killzone is a game I still want to just look at, never mind play.

What shall I play next? Finish Tomb Raider, start Uncharted 3, start Arkham City, finish Borderlands 2, finish Gears of War 3 or finish Shadow of the Colossus?

Finish Tomb Raider first - it's not really long at all.

I spent all night yesterday until 8am playing Star Fox Command :oops: Got 6 of 9 endings and working towards 7th ending, enjoying it loads now. I still rage when none of my pilots can reach missile in time :x Why can't Great Fox shoot them down with spare missile I'll never know.

Just spent a couple of hours with Tomb Raider as Seven suggested. It felt like I was near the end of the game with all the havoc that was going on, but then it come up with the start of a new chapter so maybe not. I've just saved my friends from the bad dudes, then everything just started setting on fire and exploding and I ended up getting on a chopper which crashed in a storm because Lara was being a bitch and the new chapter just started called "Some Time Alone" as all my friends are gone and i'm all... alone.

No idea what's going on though, unlike Batman i'm not interested in the story at all and have no idea why things are happening. That temple that just blew up for example, i've no idea why or how it even happened. Don't care about my buddies either so was hoping we'd just fly off and leave them, but instead I have to watch a supposed 'sad' scene about some old guy dying as we go back for 'em.

Yeah it's not long till the end. Maybe about 3-5hrs give or take, if you're not doing 100% thing. Personally I liked the story but I loved the gameplay more.

Not bothering with 100% naah. It might just be where I didn't play it for a few months then going back to it today, but i've got no idea what's going on. Will plug away at it though between World Cup games to try get it finished.

Super Mario Galaxy

Blitzing through this now. It's grown on me, but dear god the controls and camera are wank at times. Why does the game seem so intent on refusing to allow me to see where I'm going, especially underwater. And the waggle, so tiresome.

Witcher 2

Really enjoying it more, on Chapter 2 at the moment. I've never felt like I made a wrong choice - each choice are really good in sense that my mortality matters, rather than "lol this is good one" "lol so evil wow pick me" aspect. I'm still struggling to learn the magic though - I could never remember what they are apart from fire one which I use every now and then between combo attacks...and I just pretty much spam attacks... but the story is really, really good.

I'm tempted to go back to Witcher 1 so I can have my "character" carried over with decisions made in 1st if it makes any difference in 2nd for new game on Normal/Hard.

Might play some more Starfox Command soon to try get 7th ending tonight.

Still on my continuing trek through Drangleic. Killed Iron king and Shelob. Met the queen, died at the dragonriders due to a stupid thing I did. Kinda ready for this game to end, to be honest. May have overdone it, with the amount of playtime it's had recently.

Not really enjoying Infamous: Second Son (PS4) at all, tbh.

Looks nice in places but nothing like the OMG!GRAFFIKS! most of the gaming media seems to have reported. Again: Killzone Shadow Fall is still the PS4's most graphically impressive game to date for me (and that game really is 'awesome' in almost every setting, every level).

My main problem, though, comes in the form of I:SS's lead protagonist - 'Delsin'. This is possibly one of the most unlikeable, ugly, uninteresting, woefully badly designed (and over-designed) lead characters I've ever had the displeasure to have to endure. Frankly, I'd rather be on the side of the enemy AI at this point - I might at least get one clear shot off at this moron.

The story (I use the word loosely) is so instantly forgettable I still have no idea what any of its about (nor do I care).

Good job I paid just £28 quids for this turd of game. I had a bad feeling about it all along. Should have listened to my better half. :fp:

In much better news: I just pre-ordered Sniper Elite III (PS4). Yay. Good times ahead.

Just played the opening couple of hours of Ni No Kuni.

The art style in the opening town was weird, but I liked it. It was like a weird blend of 50s America, 19th century Paris and rural Japan, but it worked. Now I just appear to be beating the gooseberry fool out of Pokemon with a stick, which is oddly satisfying.
