Been playing Rondo of Blood again even though I played through Dracula X Chronicles not too recently. It just gets better every time I play it. And also I've realised just how garbage the new art style is in comparison to the original.

Also Dragon Quest VIII and Persona 5. Both are pretty dope. DQ VIII is my first proper DQ game - I've only ever played Swords on the Wii, and Rocket Slime on the DS and it's shaping up to be a very pleasant surprise. I guess I shouldn't be surprised by how good it is though considering how highly this series is thought of in Japan.

Just about to give Captial B a go in Yooka Laylee. All in all I've enjoyed playing through Yooka Laylee, barring Capital Cushino of course which I really didn't get on with. Read that the last boss can be a bit of a annoyance though so no idea if I'll get it done first time or not.

Edit, not a hoping hells chance of that being done by me! First few stages are easy but once you get to the last stage where you need to use the awful flying mechanics to direct missiles into him I quickly ran out of stamina/power and fell to my death :( Given it a few goes to no avail but I'm going to call my time with Yooka Laylee at the moment, not going to spend time with a tedious last boss stage when I could enjoy something else!

Tekken tag tournament 2

Thought I’d give this a proper go. Having the time of my life with this shite god tier tutorial with this rubbish robot I’ve been given. I was hoping for something cool like The Terminator :|

As I type currently trying to fight my way past the land mines disguised as balloons just to slap some boss who keeps shooting me with her gun. Then I get some farmer chucking his cocaine fuelled chicken at me...

Tried practice mode earlier, don’t like the tag buttons as your partner takes their time (no rush like I can’t roll my eyes hard enough :roll: ) to come into the screen.

My great grandma could get into the screen faster than these dossers & she’s dead.

I’ve had such a wonderful time playing Spiderman & now I’m playing this drivel. It’s going to be a fun few days.

Mario & Luigi PiT

Skimmed a guide and it seems I've not far from the end, I wasn't even rushing through it - just took my time and faced most if not all of enemies. It's definitely weakest M&L game (Dream Team being second) but the humour is still excellent and I had blast playing it in brusts.

But yeah, if you can just get original to play on DS/3DS, unless you don't want to pay lot for it. DS VC on Wii U is weird, imo

Started Octopath Traveller again earlier this evening, started with Therion this time. Just about done his opening chapter (I'll get it finished tonight) so I'll be starting to collect the other characters when I next get a chance. Starting it again just reminds me how lovely it looks and sounds.

Hopefully I'll play it more often than I did at my first attempt, by this I mean I hope won't get distracted by my other games and start playing those like I did last time. Only got another couple of games I'm eager to start/play more of anyway so fingers crossed it won't happen. It's still my plan to complete (or see as finished in my eyes) as many of my games as possible before Pokémon Let's Go comes out on November 16th.

Put everything else on hold to randomly play Aria of Sorrow again after it came up in conversation. Been on a bit of an unplanned Castlevania marathon recently with DXC, Sotn and Rondo. I was even rewatching the Castlevania series with a friend the other day.

At some point I thought I'd stop playing since I only planned on picking it up briefly and had already completed it, but in just a couple of sittings I'm nearly at the end of the regular route so I feel like I may as well continue. It is pretty fun and fast-paced, and it's cool observing the differences with Sotn which I completed only a couple of weeks back.

Will have to resist the urge to play Dawn of Sorrow again right after since I have a few other Castlevanias I haven't played or completed yet in mind, as well as the other stuff I'm currently playing.

Day 2 of Tekken Tag 2

Currently get slapped around by something worse than a blocked toilet. What an absolute turd of a boss Mokujin is. This is the worst Tekken since Tekken 4.

Edit: & done. Thanks for ruining my evening Mokujin.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing (PS4)

Might & Magic VII (PC)

I'm not so sure about Van Helsing. The hit detection for the combat feels very light, as in it lacks the satisfying punch you get from slaying monsters and demon's in Diablo 3 and Victor Vran. The hud and skills menus are a convoluted mess and the control system for enabling abilities is tied to the right anologue stick along with the map, so as you might imagine said map keeps popping up during those more intense battles which is very annoying. I've tried re-mapping the buttons, but choices are limited due to the amount of inputs needed. The transfer from M&K to control pad hasn't been very well implemented at all.

I'll stick with it for a little longer, see if it grows on me, but I can't see that happening as of right now.

Thems the ones!

I would always bait them with a bow back towards the town and let the guards kill them.

There were too many dragonflies and this would not work out great. You could kill half the NPCs off that way :lol:

Luring them into town always produces amusing results. :lol:

I'm currently in the Barrow Downs doing jobs for lazy assed Dwarfs. Always tough that part.

I was far too young and bad at the game, I only ever got off the opening island once, and when I did I just traveled around playing the card game at every inn I could find.

Gwent has nothing on it

Acromage!

Yep, strawberry float Gwent.

M&M VII is available via GoG if you ever fancy returning to it.

Yeah, I had issues trying to play Van Helsing (PC version) as I have to use a fairly unique control method to play games (currently a mouse and a single button operated by my chin with a couple of voice activated commands that don't always work well unless I turn all in game sounds off) and it just didn't seem to be worth the hassle to get it working properly.

Diablo IiI, Titan Quest and Grim Dawn are all far better ARPGs that work far better for my complicated physical needs so I just stick with them instead.
