I really need to play the recent Rayman games, fairly certain I have both on PC from one store or another but have never managed to fit them in.

I think the last time I played a Rayman game was back in the Gamecube days! :shock:

For my money, Origins and especially Legends are the best in the franchise! Maybe 2 following close behind, though I haven't played the original trilogy in years. Would love to revisit them, though it looks like the old PC versions of each have to be modded to hell and back to work on W10.

Especially recommend Origins + Legends on PC if you have access to a 1440p or 4k display, aside from a few lower res assets they surprisingly benefit a lot from it. Was a nice surprise as you don't always get that with 2D games, it helps that they have such gorgeous art direction too :wub:

Great Escape is still the best Rayman game and I'll fight anyone who says otherwise

Well you'll have to fight me as Legends is top-10-of-all-time tier good.

Any time of your choosing.

That doesn't mean Great Escape isn't still better ;)

Hoodlum Havoc was the one I played on Gamecube, I don't think I ever played Great Escape. I enjoyed Hoodlum but it was a bit short.

I'm going to make Legends my next priority I think, anyone know if the Switch version is worth a shot? I heard it may have had some issues?

I loved the two recent raymans enough to play them to complication on both Sony and Microsoft systems... I have just started Skyrim on Xbox one despite having finished it 3 times on 360 , if I didn't replay games I love so much I'd finish a lot more games.

So I was on GTA Online, and was just wondering around. I needed to do something on my phone, so quickly ran to the strip club as that was the nearest safe zone.
That was probably a bad idea as a few others of the lobby seemed to be discussing whether I was jacking off to GTA girls when I looked back at the screen.

Persona 3 FES. Haven't played this version of the game in years. I forgot how much cooler it is compared to P4. Granted I'm only a few hours into it but I'm liking the art direction/theming a lot more already.

Also slowly making my way through Doki Doki Literature Club again. I guess that's a game.

It's up there with the greatest platformers of all time. It controls beautifully, looks and sounds gorgeous, and doesn't stop dishing out new surprises and twists to the end.

See: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013 ... nds-review

I like it so much in fact, that I should also say that I heard the switch edition had some niggles: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digi ... definitive

But also that these apparently were ironed out in in a patch update.

Anyhow the game proper is an embarrassment of good ideas polished to (near) perfection.


And that's what I found on the matter :D

Playing Ass Creed Rogue, which is just typical Ass Creed. I like it well enough, feels like an extension of Black Flag, only with worse characters.

Also playing a bit of that Call of Juarez - Gunslinger. This is a really solid game. I like the narrative and the way the secret collectables tell you about Western history. More games with a setting in the past need to do this.

I got it and it’s definitely worth getting, £20 was a steal!

Pikmin 2

About to move into Day 5 and the third area. Pretty ace so far, these games are so enjoyable.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I agree, so much fun. Highly recommended you finish it. It's not without problems but a great game.

As for Ass Rogue I got it for the PS4 on launch and can't bring myself to even start it despite being a fan of the series. I just can't face a game right now that's going to take me 50 hours to finish.

As for my games played at the moment it's all about Yoku's Island Express on the Switch. Current completion sitting at 47 % and it's getting a bit harder but I love this game so much. It's so charming, the music is great and matches the areas so well. It may well be my GOTY so far. I had to go to Kwik Fit earlier so took the Switch me. I got home and continued right where I left off. If there was a god he'd bless the Switch for this.

I haven't played Legends yet (got it for free on PSN+), but Rayman games of yore were decidedly average and highly derivative. Nevertheless the high point of Michel Ancel's career thus far!

I'm sure there are those who would disagree, but I don't care. I'm feeling wanton.

Been going through the Crew 2 and I'm really starting to enjoy it, the game feels very similar to Steep which is good.

Rayman 2: The Great Escape is, without question, the most impressive feat of game design and execution the platforming genre has ever seen. Forget Mario. Forget Banjo. And don't even think about Crash. This is the next evolution in gaming, and it has never looked or played better than it does on your Dreamcast.
