The highpoint of HZD was, amazingly, the story. The Exposition Caves were a little much, but I still hoovered up every piece of lore I could find.

Did you also buy the expansion stuff? It has alternative play modes and is well worth the few quid it costs. Demolition :wub:

Thought I'd try out Laser League via Game Pass. I really like the look of this game and the great reviews got my hopes up a lot. Sadly the controls on this are far too woolly to get much enjoyment out of it. I'm not sure if it's the netcode or whatever but half the time you'll be killed by something that doesn't touch you, or touch a laser and it doesn't activate. It's infuriating, because the basics of the game are well done, but it currently plays like ass. Doesn't help either that no-one is online on the game at all so more often than not you're paired with 5 AI players and they're all insanely good.

Destiny on PS4. After beating the campaign in Destiny 2 I decided to return to the original as I gave up in November 2014 right before the DLC started being released I believe and want to play through as much of it as I can before buying 2's DLC. I've beaten the main campaign so I'm about ready to get started on the DLC. Oddly enough it will prove cheaper to buy a copy of Destiny: The Collection on eBay than it will to get just the DLC from the PlayStation store.

Surprisingly the game is still really busy and not just established players either. This week I've seen dozens of low level/low Grimoire score players running around.

Been put on X-ray today which can often be quiet for the most part. Some porters like to read a book, (which I have done in the past), do a cross word etc, but today I've taken in the PSP and am continuing with Breath of Fire 3.

Getting paid to play video games. :D

Dead Cells

Made it all the way to the Right Hand of the King. Meaning I sucessfully completed a number of stages and mid-level boss fights on my first attempt :toot: 8-) And then died a legit 16bit death. (Fell onto spikes.)

The thing is though, reading or doing a crossword probably gets a free pass but you just know some twat will end up complaining about staff "playing computer games instead of working".

Probably, and by some twat who sits around playing Candy Crush on their mobile phone because "that's different". :lol:

The day porters, (my shift) are cool though and don't blab. We tend to stick together. They know I'm a gamer (helped a few of them out with their own systems and their children's. Sold my spare PS3 to one for his son the other week as it happens), in fact a couple stopped to have a look at what I was playing today. One, (Martin), thought it was ace I had Resident Evil 1, 2 & 3 in my hand. 8-)

We had something like that once at my work. We had some national IT issues where all of our systems went down for an entire day but they were refusing to send people home. People were sat about reading, listening to music and such but I got pulled up for getting my PSP out.

I've had 'odd looks' from people at work when I've gotten the PSP out in the past, like I'm too old for it or something. The irony being is they play games on their phone, but because it's a phone it's clearly for adults. :fp:

My approach? strawberry float 'em.

I finally beat Crash 1 :D

Now onto Crash 2, it's loads easier to start with at least. 6 levels down in no time, even bleeding Ripper Roo went down easily.

Maybe they're just wondering why you don't have a Vita instead

Can't say I've ever been all that impressed with the Vita.

Midway through the 9S section of Nier: Automata

Loving the game as I expected I would, but after doing minimal side-quests on the first playthrough I've been doing a lot of them second time around. Having only a few hours a week to play games means I usually just zip through the main game, but these side quests seem to balance between feeling like I'm wasting my time on tedious fetch quests and loving the dialogue from the robots as well as a slightly better insight into the world.

Finished the story on Shadow of Mordor. Think it's probably the game's weakest aspect, the antagonists have basically no presence because all the focus gets put on captains and warchiefs instead. Sauron turning up was pretty cool, but reducing the final boss fight to three QTEs dulled it down a lot, and there was no explanation for who exactly the Black Hand was either.
Still, it's been a fun ride and I'm probably going to try and 100% it. Got all the bonus challenges to do now as well so I'll give them a try too.

Mordor was a superb game but it's final boss was one of the biggest disappointments gaming moments of this generation, all that build up for a bloody QTE.

Anyway going through more of Xenoblade Torna and I'm really enjoying much more than the base game.

The final boss is a QTE?

That's amazing, I thought those days were long gone

Playing FH3 with my youngest daughter, Lucy, (the elder, Molly, is on a camping trip with Girl Guides). Lucy is currently blasting around in a 90`s Skyline I bought, giggling like a good un. Yep, I think she likes FH3. :D

*edit* She accidentally stumbled across a barn find. 8-)
