All I've been playing on PC is Path of Exile, it really is good stuff if you like games like Diablo 2 - and the fact it's free makes it amazing, considering I've put in 20+ hrs on it so far and that's on one character which I've just got to Act 3 (on Normal) at Lv30.

Excellent game. Might have to give it a break once I've beaten Act III with Ranger though as I want to play other games, but yeah for free game it's brilliant.

Shovel Knight- Wii U

Glorious, absolutely glorious. Im on the last level, or at least the last one I can see on the map so they may yet reveal more for me to get through, and I have loved every second of it. They nailed the look and feel of an 8-bit game with a perfectly pitched difficulty level, always challenged but never helpless or overwhelmed. Cant wait to get this work nonsense over with so I can get back to playing it.

After finishing Alien Isolation I was about to give the other game I have from Boomerang, Wolfenstein The New Order a blast but the 5 and a bit gig update says otherwise.

Finished Shovel Knight, loved it, and now Im on to Stealth Inc 2. I loved the first one and this seems to be a big helping of more of the same with a couple of extras thrown in, got through the first 2 "zones" last night and its already getting tricky, could be a tough nut to crack by the end. The Miiverse integration is also very nice, so far its a lot of people saying how much they like the game but later on it could become very useful for helping solve puzzles or just sending people off on a wild goose chase, either way its a good time.

Super Mario 64

I started this last night and I've already got over 30 starts and I've beaten Bowser for the first time. The worlds in this game are incredible :wub:

When I was playing 3D World, I did miss the experience of exploring different worlds and working out how to obtain stars by completing different objectives. That being said, repeating the same world does get slightly repetitive but it's easily mitigated by going to different worlds to collect other stars.

I've just got six stars from the Hazy Maze Cave. I'll save the 100 coin star for a bit later on as I'm keen to mix things up by going to Lethal Lava Land.

I thought the last level was the worst 100 coin one. That and the clock :dread:

I'm about to start playing Dragon Age: Origins for the first time. Is it better to play with keyboard & mouse or a 360 controller?

Super Mario 64

I've now got all three caps and over 50 stars. It was weird seeing the game tell me that Bowser is waiting for me on the third floor when I haven't yet gone past the second star door :lol:

Getting 100 coins on Lethal Lava Land was very tricky but I finally managed to get that star and the other six. The two volcano stars weren't made any easier thanks to the camera being awkward at times.

I don't think that I've ever picked up a star on Shifting Sand Land so it feels like a whole new world to me. I couldn't work out how to get the first star but I ended up in the pyramid and got that star. The camera added to the difficulty but overall it was an enjoyable run.

Played about an hour of Dragon Age so far. It's so slow. All this listening to people talk is gonna put me to sleep.

Quest for Dungeons

Nice little rogue-like rpg with 8-bit graphics, very challenging too.

Hatsune Miku Project Diva f 2nd

The tracks don't seem as good/catchy as the first game, but they'll probably grow on me. Looks gorgeous, and improvements such as using the thumb sticks for star notes are welcome additions. Plenty of content and will probably buy the song season pass too.

Also, normal mode seems a lot harder than the first game.

Super Mario 64

I stopped playing with 61 stars. I'll keep playing when I have time but I might leave the rest for Christmas. I tried to get the 100 coin star in Shifting Sand Land on my way to the sixth star but I kept sinking in the quick sand so I moved on to Big Boo's Haunt.

Here I managed to get the first four stars and the 100 coin star. I got stuck trying to get to Big Boo's Balcony so, the next time I play, I'll go to see Bowser and try the next set of worlds.

I'm going to try to get all 120 stars, and get as close as I can without using a guide. I'm pretty sure that I never picked up a star in either Shifting Sand Land or Big Boo's Haunt when I was younger which is why they felt so unfamiliar. As I progress, I'm sure that more stars will seem unfamiliar because I only just picked up enough stars to beat Bowser as a child. Even then, I used a friend's save so he had already picked up some stars that I could never get which is how I managed to face Bowser :oops:

Whilst I think SM64 is an amazing and revolutionary game (though its impact was lessened for me by playing B-K first), I did feel at the time that its game worlds got worse as the game went on.

Whilst the like of Tick Tock Clock and Rainbow Ride are arguably more like a 2D Mario course, they have a bit more linearity about them and can be quite frustrating to traverse, whereas I preferred the more open, less urgent nature of the opening stages.

GTA: San Andreas

The game improved immensely once the second and third islands became available. All the Grove Street shite feels like an age ago now. The missions still aren't great though; there's essentially been a couple of good ones in the game so far and the rest ranged from mediocre to tedious beyond belief. Mission checkpoint system is still useless.

Wind Waker - Finished the first of the main temples after the midway point and have decided to spend time completing the sidequests and getting the treasure charts - I didn't get them all on the Gamecube originally, so will do this time! Brilliant game!

GTA5 - Spending a bit of time now and again on FPS mode, but has been put aside for the games below:

Far Cry 4 - Better than FC3 in every way. A lot more polished and menus etc are a lot easier to understand. Looks absolutely stunning on PS4 and runs brilliantly. At the moment, just upgrading a lot of my equipment by hunting animals - made the mistake of leaving that too late in FC3 and gave up.

The last of us remastered - Wow! about 5 hours in an am loving every moment. I do hope this game carrys on for at least 12 hours as it really is one of the best single player adventures I have ever played. Almost like a third person Half Life game at times, in more ways than one!

PES 2015 - haven't given this as much time as I should have due to the games above, but the best footie game for a long time. Online works pretty much lag free at the moment and I need to give fellow grcaders a few games this week if possible!

I've recently restarted a rerun through the Saints Row series - partly for my gf as she likes watching me play stuff, partly for myself as it's one of my favourite series and Gat out of Hell is due out soon and all new games seem to be rubbish. I tried playing the first game but it was janky as hell, so skimmed the plot summary which I kind of knew from the first time round anyway. Then I tried to fix the notoriously awful PC port of SR2, which I managed to get working alright, up until I had to do the same mission 3 times in a row as it kept crashing. Running out of patience I switched to the PS3 version, which doesn't crash but looks and runs like gooseberry fool. So strawberry floating good, despite the technical limitations. Just up to the end of the first 'act' for a better word, I've saved Shaundi from Veteran Child and "saved" Carlos (RIP in peace :cry: ).

Time for a controversial opinion. I think GTA is more technically accomplished, but for me Saints Row is the better game/series.

Women are so lovely.

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.
