Turok Dinosaur Hunter - Xbox One - bought the double pack of this and the sequel today. Always loved the series and it was my second game on the N64. It's been polished a bit and retains the same great game play and great weapons. Just a very fun and exciting game. Can't wait to finish it to jump into the much improved sequel.

Brilliant games. I bought both for PC a while back. I love that you can get completely lost as opposed to being forced down a singular path. Something you don't see in modern FPS titles.

Yeah the old school PC style world is huge and so easy to get lost in. Probably the best selection of weapons in a first person game. Also the way you have to find all the bits for the super weapons is really cool.

Cheat menu is a nice little addition too.

The music is superb as well, particularly in the sequel.

Crash 2, now upto the boss of level 4, Dr N Gin or something like that. Tried it a few times before calling it a day. Started to get on my nerves, normally the bosses are quite quick paced but this seems on the slower side? Mainly the first stage which seems to go on for ever! Not got past stage 2 yet.....

Trying Outlast again.

I understand the premise, but it's more than a bit unbelievable that you can't even pick up a bottle or a lump of wood to twat someone over the head with. If you can only run and hide then a better control scheme is needed as this one is a bit clunky.

I didn't like it. Especially the bits where it's too hard to see strawberry floating anything. That isn't scary, it's just annoying as strawberry float.

Yeah, it's annoying as hell and the quick draining battery life of your camera makes it infuriatingly difficult, but not in a challenge = reward difficult. I can't even get past the basement section. This is third time I've tried Outlast, but it's just not fun so I'm ditching it altogether.

Uninstalled.

I picked up Stardew Valley on Saturday morning after reading this great article on HN: https://www.gq.com/story/stardew-valley ... ne-profile

I must have sank about 15 hours into it over two days and I'm now completely burnt out :lol:. I made the mistake of starting the Summer season by planting a ridiculous number of berries that take three full energy bars to water with the bronze watering can. I started trying to balance watering the crops with mining the caves to craft sprinklers but just don't find them efficient enough. Then I built a dozen or so preserves jars for the berries not realising how long it takes to make jam. Many mistakes in my first foray into farming.

I don't like the game, but the generous checkpointing means you can just scum your way through every section by just running through and picking a different direction next time if you die.

It completely unravels the atmosphere and attempts at horror, but hey you shouldn't have any trouble with the difficulty :P

Nah, I'm done with it. Got better games to play than wasting my time with Outlast.

For a game that feels like it should be relaxing there is an awful lot of pressure which you can experience when playing Stardew Valley!

I dip in and out of it now as I can't take the pressure of being a farmer full time! :lol:

I'm on Mario Kart Double Dash at the minute, and Toad just voiced his results clip twice [for both himself and Paratroopa]. I haven't heard that before, but it's just a fun thing to note.

Almost finished Gears of War 4 on XBO (at chapter 2, Act 5). Graphically quite nice but feels like the worst of all the GOW games. Will finish this when my son returns from uni.

Gone back to Sleeping Dogs on the PC. This is actually quite good, a better version of GTA.

Yes?

I much prefered Sleeping Dogs to GTA. I bought the special edition on PSN a while back, I really must give it a blast at some point.

Gone back to Zone of Enders on the PS4 and I'm nearing the end of it, the combat is really great but controlling Jenhuty is a bit of a pain.

I was going to say "it is like GTA if GTA was good" but I thought that might set off some tears.

Hexyz Force

Relatively obscure PSP JRPG with some nice anime cutscenes, haven't spent much time with it yet but seems pretty good so far. The visuals are nice and chunky, very similar in style to the brilliant Jeanne D'Arc.

Its supposedly quite short though, even with two separate story campaigns but after spending 120+ hours on Persona 3 I think something lighter will be a good thing before I start Disgaea 5 in the next couple of weeks.

Diablo 3 (Xbox One)

Just finished the story mode, so it'll be Adventure Mode time for time being to get to 70 before moving onto other characters although originally wanted to beat story mode so I'm glad I've achieved that!

The evil within (Xbox One)

I am too wussy to play this in long sessions, if not that then actually start playing it! Got to Chapter 3 and I dunno if I'll ever beat it :lol: May as well call it slow progress, can't complain too much for tenner

Final Fantasy XV (X1)

Enjoying it, though I'm not in hurry to progress through the main story - happily exploring the world when strawberry floating around. The banter between the characters is nice -- and it looks stunning. Will be playing it off and on depending on my mood

Taking a break from Destiny until my complete edition turns up in the post I had a quick go of Castlevania: Circle of the Moon on GBA last night. I've played through this before and seem to remember it getting rather hard pretty quickly. Turns out my memory was correct as I barely made it through the second boss fight and then had to make my way very cautiously back through an enemy rich room with a sliver of health to reach the nearest save point.
