Plus the resolution is utter dogshit on the XB1 version. I looks like everything has been smeared by a layer of vaseline.

Yeah the resolution takes a bit to get used to, unlike Outlast you can shoot the enemies though.

I get what they are trying to do with it, but yeah, I'm not really compelled by it. I will probably try and finish it. I'm about to go into the son's outhouse. I assume he will have some kind of escape room thing setup in it.

Started Iconoclasts last night, and it is really good.

I'm about three quarters of the way through LA Noire and it's getting to the point where it's outstayed its welcome - it really needs to be a 10-12 hour experience as there is just so much repetition and the narrative isn't as great as it thinks it is.

Took a break to put a couple of hours into Robinson: The Journey, which is nice enough. Looks great in places but seems more like a tech demo than an actual game, though I'm enjoying it enough to see it through to the end (as is typical for a VR game, it's shaping-up to be a 4-5 hour lump).

LA Noire is crap. Not sure if they improved it when it was rereleased but the original version was dogshit.

Still playing Knack 2 and was intending to aim for the platinum. Problem is, not sure I can unlock one of the trophies. Missed getting all of the super powers in both full play throughs but picked up the final power by replaying the specific chapter but the trophy did not unlock. Playing through on easy again to see if it unlocks in story mode but will abandon if it doesn't unlock.

Also chipping away at Cuphead (about one hour per week). Done the third boss on Island 3.

Yes?

Waiting on the switch port, hope it comes soon enough! The animation looks fantastic

I actually quite enjoyed it when it first came out, but this 'remaster' IS utter dogshit, certainly on a technical level - they have made no effort whatsoever to improve the game. Pop-in on this level wouldn't be acceptable on a new game, so why they thought it would be okay on a remaster of a last-gen title is beyond me.

Haven't played anything for a couple of weeks as I've been enjoying getting back into my art. I did buy the Naruto Trilogy via PSN as it's on sale (£18.99) so will start that sometime this week. Probably Thursday as I'm off work.

I'm loving the game tbh. Hopefully it does come to Switch so more people can play it.

Final Fantasy VII. It’s alright, yeah. The snowboarding section on the Vita was delightful. As in, horrific.

If anyone posts ‘Don’t use your Vita as a snowboard, then :roll:’ then they’re getting banned.

I forgot about that bit. I really need to play this game again.

It’s aged brilliantly. Still the best one, in terms of the moment-to-moment plot, the combat, the customisation, the music, the mini-games, the side quests, the characters. Just about to ‘borrow’ the submarine - black chocobo in the bank already an’all 8-)

Mix of Joyride Jetpack, Monster Hunter World and FFXIV on PS4

Joyride Jetpack is better on small screen but still enjoying it, just can only play it in small brusts before my eyes has enough of scrolling screen at fast speeds :lol:

MHW when I've got nothing to do on FFXIV - unlike some people I don't move from main missions to another quicky and instead took my time learning bow/daggers and doing SOS missions as well sidequests, it's fun to play in either small brusts or long sessions depending on my mood

Maybe I should add Bayonetta on Switch to mix, but I'll wait and see how things go over next week

I'm a big Trials fan so I've been checking out the latest Xbox freebie Trials Of The Blood Dragon. I was looking forward to this despite the critical mauling. After all, more Trials can only be a good thing, right?

I'm on a ship in Resident Evil 7. This is still kinda underwhelming to me. The pacing feels off. The gameplay isn't really that great when you break it down, VR I assume would be much better. It also feels like there was strawberry float all money thrown at it. The lack of locations and padding kinda hurt it.

Very close to dropping it.

I didn't enjoy the ship part. You aren't too far from the end now....

Been playing a bit of Grand Theft Auto 5 : online

Just general larking around, trying about a few things.

Tried the vehicle cargo missions & you can only do so many before a cool down period.

If your from Rockstar can you please tell me why you have put some mobile bollocks in my game?.

Come fight death with me
