I want to replay Deadly Premonition and it being BC on Xbox One is great news!

I'll have to get it digital sometime next year.

Still on Lords of the Fallen (after giving it up after a hissy fit of it being too difficult and coming back to it). Another problem I've encountered is that I managed to do 2 of the lords in the wrong order. This resulted in me not knowing what to do next and having to go back to the scene of where I killed a previous lord to trigger the next bit of the game. Bit silly that it lets you play the game out of sequence, but whilst doing so my man has got more beefier meaning it is very bad news for most of the enemies who get in my way.

Yes?

I killed the Champion (in the catacombs from the graveyard) before killing the lord across the bridge (where the crafter bloke is). I then had to go back to the catacombs to where I killed the Champion to be let into the place where you need to meet the two guys who are next in the quest (the planetarium area).

Might have been nine years after everyone else has played and finished it but I guess you're finally having the last laugh, Photek.

Legend of Grimrock II - Great game, but damn hard combat.

Might &Magic X: Legacy. - Not quite as good as previous entrants in the series, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Back to my play through of TLoU later tonight.

I just played a little bit of Zombi. It was actually quite tense, I was quite surprised how scary I actually found it. That said I didn't really encounter anything that difficult the Zombies were easily dispatched. The graphics are quite bad and it seems very straight forward. Going to try and play a bit more. What were other people experiences of the game?

Too terrifying to play, but I’ve toughrned up since so I might give it a retry.

It is not a bad game but the graphics are fairly poor, even when playing on Wii U launch day I was disappointed. It does get quite difficult in some places and a few of the puzzles can be a pain, but overall, worth sticking with.

That's good to hear I'll stick with it then.

Lords of the Fallen. I’m a little lost at the moment on my quest to find Anhilator. I’ve spoken to that wifey again and pulled a couple of levers that have something to do with freeing something if memory serves but other than that I am completely lost.

I'm playing the watch the console update game.
It's bloody thrilling, 9/10.

Enjoying Mudrunner: A Spintires Game on PS4Pro. If you know Spintires, the first game, you'll be right at home here. Slow, ponderous, frustrating (sometimes) and reasonably priced. I don't think the console versions are as fully-featured as the PC version, but what there is here is a time-sink. It's easy to get caught up in the minutiae of adequately navigating a rig around a treacherous map (the main maps are are all pretty big and open-world-ish), desperately trying to find a viable route towards your mission goal.

The game looks quite impressive - there's a day-to-night cycle just to spice things up (nice, when you're stuck halfway across a deep, fast-flowing river) and the models themselves look detailed. The game's physics shine and you really get a sense of the weight and momentum of the rigs and their loads as you traverse the uneven terrain.

If you like slow and careful, a bit of strategy and planning you should have fun with the game.

There's also a MP function which seems to work quite well (I haven't tried it, but seen a fair few YT vids on the mode). It's ideal for setting up overland expeditions in convoy - I'm really tempted to try it out!

I hope there'll be more maps and rigs in DLC to come!

8.5/10.

Shadow Warrior 2 - basically a modern Serious Sam. Brilliant weapons and combat. Also very funny.

Injustice 2 - finished the story in one sitting, it lost its way by the end. Combat is ok but the dlc characters listed in the menus leave a bad taste in the mouth. Will play a bit more but it's not exciting.

Wish my image sig would work

Tell me about it! I thought you'd already completed the game? You have to free (or kill) the monster in chains. There are 3 levers in total to find. Took me an age to find the last one and then I noticed one of those doors you need to use the gauntlet to open! Did this last night but not had time to play tonight as I finished work late. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to find the bastard last one and kill him/it.

Yes?
