Starfox Adventures
A few frustrations, but it's good on the whole. Think I'm about a third of the way through. Has elements of Starfox (obviously), Zelda and platform games, and it actually works well.

Hyrdo Thunder Hurricane
This is great fun. Handles well, looks good, and just a blast to play. Real shame there's no time-trial mode; it's crying out for one.

Mainly PES on PS4. Barely playing anything else bar Mario Kart Monday on the Wii U and a tiny bit of Disgaea on Switch.

I need to pick, say, two games and concentrate on them rather than flitting about between stuff. But, man, I've been saying that for ages and I haven't actually done it. My attention span seems to be so short at the moment.

What did you make of the section with the rolling barrels? I found it easily one of the hardest parts of the game which is odd since it happens pretty early on.

Hmm, not sure which bit you mean. I can only think of two bits you might be referring to; there's the bit outside when those two enemies are throwing barrels down the hill and you have to get up to them, or the bit inside the volcano where you have to go up a relatively short ramp with continual barrels coming down. You have to go up it several times throughout the course of the dungeon.

If it's either of those, honestly I didn't have a problem. Did them both first time from what I can recall. Maybe I'm thinking of different sections..?

Aye, it's the bit with the ramp where you carry the fuel barrel that I'm talking about. Maybe I'm just a bit gooseberry fool but it frustrated the hell out of me.

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood

I played through the new order around two years ago but had left this expansion unplayed, the trailer for Wolfenstein 2 at E3 made me go back and I'm so glad I did. It's more simplistic and repetitive than the Old Blood in many respectives but it's fantastic fun, throws loads of enemies at you with great weapons to dispatch them with. I'm playing it on the third difficulty setting so it's sufficiently challenging that I am dying occasionally but never frustratingly so, it's also the perfect game to play after having played through sprawling adventures like Twilight Princess, Breath of the Wild and Red Dead Redemption in recent months.

Ahh, I'm with you. Forgot about that part. Yeah it took me a couple of tries. Once I'd noticed the pattern of the barrels it wasn't too bad, although the fact you need to do it a couple of times to progress was annoying. Seem to be a few sections where you have to do the same thing over and over/do lots of backtracking, which is annoying.

Fallout New Vegas. Currently in the dead money DLC, but I might just load up an earlier save and forget this ever happened. It's so unbelievably shite.

Titanfall 2 (PS4)

So, after finally putting my PES master league game to bed, i've been playing Titanfall 2. Worked my way through the campaign which was really rather wonderful. After the first couple of missions I thought it was really solid if a little unspectacular, but once got to *that* mission... Oh boy! Loved every minute of it. Put me in mind of half life a bit too. It's great how each mission throws something new at you. Still to get stuck into the multiplayer and gonna go back and get some more of the collectibles in the campaign.

Is that the one with poison air, weird zombie things and the casino heist? That DLC sucked. The cheesy sci-fi one (set on moon Base with robot think tank) was great though and I enjoyed the final one where you follow original courier of platinum chip (lonesome road?!)

Coming towards the end of Wolfenstein now, think I have about two chapters left. Everytime I think the game can't top itself it throws something new into the mix.

Nazi's not enough for you? Have some Nazi Zombies! Nazi Zombies not enough? Well now they're on fire! Flaming Nazi Zombies still not enough? Well now they're falling from the sky :slol:

So nice playing something that doesn't take itself too seriously, it's over the top and completely daft at times but it absolutely revels in it. I'll take 'old school' shooter mechanics, carrying plenty of weapons and having health/shield pickups, over recharging health and dual weapon slots any day of the week!

Yup, the very same. It's the flaws of this game magnified. I don't play these games for a linear, guided experience. I just want to walk around a map and find interesting stuff.

I haven't played it before, I have played the other one you were talking about on a previous playthrough and it is indeed great (Old World Blues). I haven't played The Lonesome Road yet.

Titanfall 2 - PS4

I borrowed a copy as I only really want to play through the singleplayer, which has thrown up some really interesting level design like the prefab factory/training zones. I think i'm about to get to the amazing bit everyone's talked about but so far its been an enjoyable and smooth-running experience.

I had a go at the multiplayer and after being met with a confusing mass of menus, unlocks and currencies I jumped into a match which fortunately was one from the first game. Scored a lucky titan kill but otherwise never saw another player coming before dying. I think i'l stick to overwatch for my multiplayer shooter fix as I do not feel any incentive to git gud/grind out unlocks and especially no desire to buy it on PC for mouse and keyboard controls either.

Oddly for me, have a few games on the go which probably means something will be abandoned. On the PS4, up to episode 2 of Life is Stange. Enjoying this more on the PS4 than when I played Episode 1 on the PC so I'm guessing this is purely down to the trophies. Also played a few games of Killing Floor 2 which although is quite good, I probably won't return to. June was probably the best month for PS4 on PSN IMO.

On the PC playing Left 4 Dead2 and Zombie Army Trilogy courtesy of the Steam sale. Was a bit pissed with Left 4 Dead 2 at first as I couldn't get my PS4 controller working. I've now managed that but after buying Zombie Army Trilogy today, probably won't return to L4D2 as I prefer Zombie Army.

Most of my gaming time in the past few weeks has been spent playing PES 2017 on PS4. Beyond that, I have finally dipped my toes back into Final Fantasy XIV Online on PS4. Man, it's so long since I've played that I have forgotten nearly everything :lol: . I want to stick with it this time but there are a few basic aspects I'm stuck on... I think I'll need to seek out a couple of beginners guides on YouTube.

Oh, and I'm still joining in with the GRcade Mario Kart Monday racing sessions on the U :toot: .

Still plugging away at Dragon Warrior VII. I'm approaching the 80 hour mark and haven't really made any progress in the last 8 hours or so which has mostly been spent grinding class levels.

The boss I'm stuck on really doesn't fight fair. In my last attempt he put my party whole to sleep and poisoned them in the opening turn before I could even get any attacks in and my party all died from poison a few turns later all still asleep.

Assassins Creed 2 as part of the Ezio Collection on PS4.

Picked this up in the recent PSN deal of the week and loving AC2 all over again. I 1000 G'd this on 360 years ago (a very rare occurance) as I loved it way back then

Just opened up Venice so about half way through and it's everything I remember it to be. Love the Renaissance era setting.

Got Brotherhood and then Revelations too as part of this bundle so they should satiate my inner assassin. For now

Battlefield 1 campaign.

Oddly conflicted on this. It's by far the best Battlefield SP campaign but it's gone is all over the place. It tries to be reverent and respectful in its cutscenes, but the next moment your stoving heads in and fighting on top of a burning zeppelin. 6/10

State of Decay

Probably the best Romero-esque zombie game ever. Really captures the hopeless mood of those films, and well as the suddenly grisly deaths. 9/10

Wolfenstein The New Order

Playing this for the fourth time now. Between this and DOOM Bethesda have the singleplayer FPS market cornered. This is the best narrative shooter since Half Life 2, a genuinely heartfelt romp that's genuinely affecting, laugh out loud funny and it has Nazi robot dogs. A miracle of a balancing act. 10/10

Replaying Portal 2 on PC, played it years ago on the 360.

It looks very good and plays very well. Not that far into it, just met Glados.

I played it on PS3 and it's one of my all-time favourite games; terrific atmosphere, wonderful puzzles and pretty funny in places, too.
