Also replaying Knack 2 on hard with some swearing involved. 2 hit deaths are possible in some parts and not convinced I will be able to complete this.

Yes?

CoD:WW2
I wasn't going to pick this up as I played nothing but CoD multiplayer for about 6 months last year. What can I say, I love it. I know it's never been less popular you like CoD as a 'serious' gamer but for me nothing matches how they feel (with the exception of Titanfall 2) and the satisfaction of getting kills. As someone who primarily plays online solo this is still the best option for me.

Fifa 18
Another unpopular choice but it's the football game I've played for a few years now and I know how it works. The online seems a bit ropey which makes it incredibly frustrating but when you get a good game and the old Fifa momentum shift is in your favour it is very satisfying.

Dishonoured 2
My next single player game after finishing Wolfenstein, I've really been looking forward to this as I loved the first. It looks phenomenal. AC Origins probably has more technical chops but the vibrancy and detail make it like something Nintendo would do. I'm struggling to get to grips with the gameplay, I want to go for an undetectable killer style but I keep getting spotted and just hacking my way through enemies.

Night In the Woods
This is my night shift game but as I didn't move much out of bed last week I put a bit more time in. I do like it but it's starting to drag. I will finish it but not bother with any of the side stuff.

Battlefield 1
Playing the new maps and at one stage while at a conquest point in a trench with rain pouring down, gun caked in mud and crouching with several others huddled together it looked photo realistic. I was actually taken aback at what I was seeing. Everyone had a gas mask on because of mustard gas grenade nearby and it was all stunning.

Then when we got the point we all surged over the wall into no mans land, bullets flying and half of us got torn to shreds, the sense of dread running to the next trench with gun fire all around is exhilarating. Played the Somme map and spent entirety of it at only a couple of conquest points but the hay fields by point A are again, breath taking.

PUBG/Fortnite BR
Play both nightly and I have no idea why resolution Fortnite is but at 60fps it looks just as good as before...excellent optimization from Epic. I still prefer PUBG but the frame rate differential is vast between the 2. I hope they can get it to 60, I mean it's perfectly playable but with Fortnite being so smooth it's a little jarring.

Got Dissidia Final Fantasy NT for £33 from Game and I've been giving it a go and so far I regret my purchase.
Fighting is fun and there's a great range of characters and stages, but there's bugger all modes and the story mode is a freaking mess.

Do you use the spade? There's nothing more satisfying than sneaking up behind an enemy and using it to bash them over the head.

Not yet. I use the shotgun with incendiary rounds for my cheese gun. I tried the Resistance class for the tactical knife but it just isn't the same without marathon pro and lightweight pro.

So you're one of those shotgun guys eh, i often nick their annoying weapons and use them against them.

I have to say though, the lack of a lightweight/marathon/sprint perk can be very frustrating sometimes.

Yeah they annoyed me so much i though if you can't beat them....

The Airbourne class is the closest to marathon, sprint, etc but you can't use it with the tactical knife.

I mainly use infantry and mountain class, the latter being so i can snipe, thankfully there are some great sniper friendly maps this time around which makes things a lot easier.

My current favourite maps in general are Sainte Marie Du Mont, Carentan Winter and Pointe Du Hoc.

Gone back to Dead Rising 4 and slaughtering hundreds of zombies is brilliant fun.

I'm trying all the classes but Infantry with a loaf of attachments is so much fun. I hate not having rapid fire.

I'm terrible at remembering the map names but I think there is a good mixture this year, all the guns are viable.

Into the Breach

A turn based mech strategy game by the makers of FTL, has elements of XCOM, Advance Wars and the time resetting bit of Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow.

Have seen a couple of reviews saying its too easy and can be completed in an hour but I haven't managed to get more than a few missions done before everything goes to gooseberry fool and time gets reset, sending you back to the beginning with a slight amount of gained experience.

I agree, it's the best set of maps i've played in ages, Black Ops III only had one truly decent map, and i was so impressed by those in Infinite Warfare, i switched to Modern Warfare Remastered.

Not played anything for a while but yesterday I started Gear Club Unlimited on Switch. It seems fun albeit the races are short... reallly short. Don't think anything has been over two minutes yet and I guess this ties up with its mobile origins. Good, simple racing, though, and I've just gained a second car for my garage.

I really liked IW but I didn't realise how much I prefere boots on the ground. Will you get the first map pack today?

Fifa 18
Still not sure why I've gone to gooseberry fool on this, I played a game yesterday and couldn't string 2 passes together. I don't know if you just have to wait for the game that 'lets' you compete but I'm almost done with this.

Dishonoured 2
Love the world but finding the stealth and combat really unsatisfying. I'll stick with it because it's not overly difficult but I thought I'd like this much more than I do.

Nah, i've never bought any of the map packs, i've always wanted to but there are always a ton of other things i usually have to buy instead.

Still, i did have fun with a flamethrower today...

I loved Dishonored 2, but I really struggled to actually be stealthy in it. If you aren't worried about killing in it, and you are using Corvo, shadow kill and the sight ability are musts.

Don’t the different characters favour a certain play style? I could have sworn I read somewhere that the male is better for stealth.

Started playing Star Wars Battlefront 2. Played the first four missions and finding the game enjoyable, also it's a stunning looking job.
