Resident Evil 7. I'm not very far into this yet as I'm finding it pretty tough. I'm enjoying it for the most part but the shooting just seems a little off. I just finished an area with quite a lot of enemies and found myself regularly reloading my save as I kept missing shots I would have sworn were dead on hits.

Batman Arkham Asylum on PS3. This game may be 7/8 yrs old but it's still great fun. Possibly my favourite of the franchise. Remember Suzz praising it when it first came out. How right he was to do so too!

Edit: and finished. Great game

If you haven't get the shotgun. Google how to, if you must. The pistol is all but useless and I found the game much more fun once I got a weapon that actually worked.

In my own news: Horizon is getting better. I've just reached Mother's Crown so have all the sidequests now, and I found my first Cauldron which gave me my first "holy gooseberry fool this looks good" moment. Took down a few Bellowbacks which was fun, using all me traps and shite, and bought a few maps to track down artifacts.

It is good.

I found the shotgun, the loading screens pretty much tell you how to get it. It made the area I was playing through a lot more tolerable, particularly any rooms with more than a single enemy inside.

Metal Gear Solid 2 VR missions (Snake (mgs1), variety level 1).

What a nasty, stinking, slimey, rancid, putrid, festering, vile, odious, draining the goddamn life out of me this mission is. Same as before, your on your platform & this time you have to protect a cardboard box.

Now there are 31 enemies (looks lie it's another generic 118 118 dial up a bad guy situation, zzzzzzzzzzzz haven't seen that before in a game :roll: ), they are like flies around the dustbins, they're everywhere. This is some mickey mouse bullshit.

All I want to do is play a game where a game dev doesn't come up with irritating shite like this. There is nothing fun or challenging about this.

It's an end-game challenge of the optional extra content from an expanded release of the actual game. If it's really grating that much maybe don't play it? Seems a little harsh when it basically just exists as a challenge for dedicated fans of the game who have exhausted all of the other content.

Do you have the stakeboarding mini game. I was pretty annoyed that it didn't come with the X-Box version.

It's not in the HD collection either :(

Same for the Ape Escape crossover Snake vs Monkey and the nightmare game ( http://metalgear.wikia.com/wiki/Guy_Savage ) in MGS3

Picked up six games on disk for my trusty old 360 a few days ago - £30 the lot from CEX.

ALIENS: COLONIAL MARINES
HUNTED: THE DEMON'S FORGE
SONIC ALL-STARS RACING TRANSFORMED
GHOST RECON: FUTURE SOLDIER
LEFT4DEAD 2
GRID 2

Impressed by just how good some of these still look - Grid 2 is pretty outstanding. The Sonic game also looks gorgeous.

Making steady progress in RE7. Just finished Lucas' testing area although I get the feeling I may have permanently missed out on getting a magnum now.

Bastion (PC). Has a quite nice graphical style with some old school type game mechanics. A retro game without the gooseberry fool retro look.
Yes?

I didn't know there were two Metal Gear/Ape Escape crossovers. I only knew about Mesal Gear Solid: Snake Escape.

I only know about it because my little brother was obsessed with the Ape Escape series. I only ever played the first one. I'm assuming this is why only Ape Escape 2 is on the PlayStation store as the licensing agreement has likely expired... similarly we'll likely never see Tekken 3 on the store due to the unlockable character Gon.

Got a mix of games and consoles on the go at the moment....

Switch:
- MK8 deluxe with the kids
- Fast RMX
- Zelda BotW (limited game time due to the kids nagging for MK8 multiplayer)

PS4:
- Batman Return to Arkham - Asylum. Bought on a whim in the sale last week as I'd just finished it on PS3.
- PES 2017. Scoring some different goals from Fifa and enjoying the randomness more

Vita:
- Persona 4 Golden. Around 30 hrs now but it still isn't a wow game or anything. Story is intruiging but having to do the same old dungeon layout for 10 floors each time grates. Just fought and rescued Rise and Teddie. Trying to get lucky with Yukiko though..... :shifty:

Easiest tip. Leg it. They won't follow.

Mass Effect, after an utterly uninspiring first few hours which almost resulted in me giving up, its turned into an excellent game. Very mass effect. Was mass effect the game where you could put points into your speech? I miss that. Apart from that the gunplay is excellent and, although a little overwhelming to start with, Im having a lot of fun with it now.

Yeah I realise that now, to be fair the loading screens basically say as much. I assumed the enemies would be able to open doors but guess not. I took advantage of their stupidity when I was tracking the key cards down with the Snake key. I've finished the game now anyway.
