I'm about 10 hours into Yakuza Kiwami 2, and i'm back on the cabaret club circuit.

Great to see Yuki-chan again.

Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga+Bowsers Minions - 3DS

This is my first Mario & Luigi game i’ve played and i’m really enjoying it. The writing has been entertaining and the battle system is simple but works well and more options have been opening up as you go along. It’s colourful and really easy to get into, i’ll be picking up more of these for sure

I'm about 25 hours into Dragon Quest XI. Enjoying the story, but battles are very simple and easy. I should have selected Draconian mode, but I'm not restarting now.

Went back to Diablo 3 on PC last night. I'd played through the story when it was first released, but hadn't looked at Adventure mode or seasons before. Created a new character for season 15, and I'm up to level 20.

Been playing on Wii U lately, so far two main games I'm going through is Mario & Luigi PiT (DS VC) and Bomberman 64 (N64 VC)

I really hope Switch will have VC, but until then I'll make sure to use Wii/Wii u for VC. (Especially that you won't be able to download your Wii VC games after January 2019...)

Anyway. Mario & Luigi PiT I'm enjoying it, although much prefer Superstar Saga to it... And DS VC is weird on Wii U, with tablet having bottom screen and TV using top screen but after getting used to it it's not too bad.

Bomberman 64 - had to buy it as soon as I saw it on Wii u, since I loved it when I was kid. Still loving it, but its more difficult than I thought! Either that or I suck :eyes:

Also SM3D World with boyfriend, and Wii Fit U taking turns.

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.


Everything I wrote there is bullshit. This game is amazing.

It's consistently been described as one of the best MP games of this generation that simply hasn't sold at all.

What's most surprising to me is that it's on Xbox Game Pass so it's effectively free to try out for subscribers, but I've found three people online in the ten hours I've been playing. I understand that it's on PS Plus this month too, not sure what the player count is like there.

It's not the most welcoming of games, but when it hooks you, man, it's superb. Even playing against AI it's just fantastic fun.

I started Yooka Laylee again this evening, seem to be enjoying it a lot more than when I last tried it actually (probably not helped by the fact I was still playing Mario Odyssey at that time). It's by no means perfect but it's a nice game, not looking for 100% completion (mainly just besting the game to see the credits so I can see my name roll by!) so I'm not expecting it to take too long. After I've got Yooka done I'll probably get back to Hollow Knight or Octopath Traveller (tempted to start that one again as well).

Zero Time Dillema on Vita and Steredenn on Switch. They complement each other perfectly, and I'm really loving the latter. If anyone wants to compete for score on the leader boards let me know your friend code and I will add you!

Steredenn is quality. Haven't played it since I got the last of the achievements, but I might give it another whirl at some point.

Bought Journey Collectors Edition for £6.49. Will be playing this much talked about game this evening, see what all the fuss is about.

Still playing the cabaret club, so addictive, not had a proper chance to get into Majima construction yet though.

Still enjoying Yooka Laylee, just about to start the 3rd world. It's no Banjo but it's still pretty good.

I started The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth + on Switch last night. Dang, man, that start was creepy. The gameplay seems simple and neat although I suspect that there is way more to the mechanisms then I realise; I'm picking up bits without knowing how to use them. I've never really played a rogue-type game before and the randomIsed maps are intriguing. I guess that, rather like Souls, dying and learning is all part of the experience?

I played The Evil Within 2 for roughly an hour in an attempt to give it a second chance but I just can't. I can't. As soon as combat starts I just want to punch whoever designed it. It's such a monumental regression from TEW1. And that strawberry floating story my god. It's so horribly cliche, Sebastian's wife and kid are so saccharine it makes me want to cock slap myself. And its like the writers had a competition to see how many times one person can say the name Lily in one script. Compared to the first game it's just so strawberry floating verbose too, so many super long cutscene and they're all bad. And Sebastian never shuts up, and it's all completely pointless chatter. "I need to get out of here", "what the strawberry float is that", "I gotta go", just shut the strawberry float up already! I actually think it's the most disappointing sequel I can think of. Uninstalled and reinstalled TEW1 for my Halloween gaming.

Journey

Only played it for about an hour. Haven't totally made my mind up about it as yet, but I like it so far.

TES V: Skyrim.

Started re-modding after my PC reset. Uninstalled Skyrim SE because there are so many conflicts and errors with modding. Sure I could find workarounds, but why bother with that headache when I've a fully functioning Skyrim original that I already know inside and out when it comes mods, fixes etc.

At work now, but will continue with the task later tonight.

Yep, you're gonna die a hell of a lot, all part of the gameplay loop.

Thanks, Db, I'm gonna go back to it this evening to try and better understand how things work. I just took a look at that thread... magnificent! I wonder what this final expansion will offer? It sounds like it could be cool.

Just starting world 4 on Yooka Laylee, still liking it but the more I play it the more the camera does my head in :roll:

Edit, wow the 4th world really takes it down a notch in my opinion, only been in there about 15 mins but it's easily the worst world so far.

Edit 2, Galleon Galaxy is a load better thankfully, will have to find 18 pages in it to get to the 100 mark though, or go and get some ones I've missed from earlier levels/Hivory Towers.
