Cultist Simulator

Really interesting card game. From one of the team who worked on Sunless Sea, and it's got that same Victorian gothic theme, but plays more like Fallen London. The resource balancing is well implemented, as it's easy enough to keep your health and finances stocked up, so it doesn't feel like a core to manage them just to keep paying, but they're always a consideration when you're taking riskier actions as you progress further. Cards can be used to support others in a variety of ways which means you can play the same card for slightly different outcomes, and it's not long before you're starting complex expeditions, sending out followers and resources to work for you.

Only attempted one playthrough so far, but it looks like there should be plenty of different paths to take.

State of Decay 2. (X1S)

Put several hours in so far and it's been very enjoyable. There's a lot to like here and I can see it being one of those games I'll keep returning to.

Aside from the hud occasionally flickering and a bit of slow down I've not experienced any bad bugs so I'm guessing the last patch sorted out quite a few issues.

Just about wrapped up my second play through of Ultra Moon, just have the Rainbow Rocket episode to beat. I have to say, I've enjoyed it a lot more playing it a second time than I thought I would.

Suppose after this I'll go back to Zelda or Xenoblade Chronicles 2, I think I'm nearing the second divine beast in Zelda but I know I still have a lot of the region to explore before I beat the divine beast. Got to get them Korok seeds!

Xenoblade Chronicles
Think I'm 105 hours into this now. Still plenty of sidequests. :slol: Just when you think you're nearing the end you find out there's loads more to do (which isn't necessarily a bad thing). I'm at the point now though where the quests I want to complete or the items I need require beating enemies who are 20+ levels above me. :dread: Going to take a long time to get to the point when I can beat them, which means many more hours of quests, grinding, etc.

GRID 2
I spend maybe 30 mins on this at a time, which is enough to get a few races done. The frustrations with handling and AI cars are still there, but it's good fun still to cure that racing itch.

Saints Row The Third
I've put some proper time into this now and it's good fun. I like the city's design and the missions and activities so far. The plot's pretty poor, but everything else is decent. Easy to lose time to this one.

Downloaded Battlefield 4 on the Xbox One so I could get to some online conquest action [why the new Star Wars Battlefronts don't have this mode is just poor excuses to make them different and I hate it], so quick match to conquest and finish up the tail-end of a Seige of Shanghai map. Next map loads - Seige of Shanghai. Third map - the same one. I had been quick-matched into a Seige of Shanghai Conquest server.
And I'm fine with that.

Playing LA Noire for the first time, and really not sure what to think. I like how it's all seemingly about the case you're working on instead of side missions and open world activities. I love the motion capture. I just finished the 3rd/final case for the traffic desk however, and while I got most of the clues and such, one of the ones I missed was pretty vital to the entire case, and it seemed a bit crazy that when I got to the end it was all 'well done for nailing that one' when Cole really shouldn't have been able to piece it together from what I had.

I'm about a quarter through HZD (according to stats) but I'm not overly enjoying it. Too much talking and although this probably sounds ridiculous as the game is based around robot dinosaurs, I find them a nuisance as I always need to cross their paths to progress.

Been trying to stick to the main story to just get the game competed but then get distracted by various side missions so the game must be doing something right.

Yes?

I've about 9 hours on the clock on Sleeping Dogs. Really solid game.

It manages to do a lot of things very well. Cool combat, nice driving mechanics, decent enough shooting bits. The story is quite interesting.

Yep a great game, particularly if you're a fan of class John Woo films.

Loved it when it first launched and so I bought the definitive edition for PS4 but have yet to check it out.

Playing Dying Light Enhanced Edition at the moment. Need to finish it before the sequel arrives. Scares the crap out of me though!

Enter the Gungeon (PC)

Had it since launch but barely played it. Fancied something a little different from zombies. Fun, if surprisingly difficult at times.

Unsurprisingly I'm on a bit of a cyberpunk run at the moment.

Observer: This is an incredibly pretty game, and utterly terrifying. You play an Observer, a detective who can hack into people's subconscious through implants, making his way through a low level slum building on the hunt for a vicious murderer. The real world sections are pretty enough, but when you enter people's minds is when it gets full on. Some of the effects on display are mesmerising as these worlds of thought shift and collapse around you. It is, however, primarily a horror game and as someone with a low tolerance for scares it's pretty tough for me to keep going. It's worth it though.

Oh, and the player character is voiced and modelled on Rutger Hauer. So there's that.

Shadowrun: Dragonfall: I played Shadowrun Returns on its release and it was great. I've now got to get through the 2 expansion campaigns, this and Hong Kong. Not far enough into this to pass judgement, but its suitably cyberpunk to satisfy my current itch.

Same developer as Soma, (which I thoroughly enjoyed), is it not?

Almost, Bloober Team. They did Layers of Fear. SOMA was the Amnesia guys, Frictional.

Ak, now I want to play SOMA again.

I enjoyed Layers of Fear also. Got my devs mixed up. I did briefly read about Observer but never got around to picking it up. No doubt it'll find its way into the Summer Steam sale.

Prey, I've had it a while but only played for an hour, it got X1 enhanced a couple of days ago so booted it up again and I like it, it's quite clunky in parts but yeah it's good.

So far nowhere near as good as any Bioshock game (even infinite) but it may get better.

Been playing through a fair bit of Sushi Striker for Switch, and it's certainly one bizarre but brilliantly addicting puzzle game.

Metal Gear Rising Revengeance. The camera is strawberry floating awful in this game.
