Just wrapping up my time with Battlefront 2. Been having more fun with Jetpack Cargo since they added Bespin, although I'll probably just unlock the hoth skin for Leia tomorrow and call time on this game for a while.

Far Cry Primal (PS4 Pro)

I never picked this up when it was released, although the concept intrigued me even back then. A few days ago I purchased the Gold Edition on PS Store for just £15, including all DLC and Season Pass.

What a beautiful-looking game world. It looks stunning on my Pro running with super sampling on my 1080i HDTV - it must be even more impressive on powerful modern PC. Just walking about through the sun-dappled Giant Redwood forests, a very evocative ambient forest soundtrack in the background, is worth the price of admission alone. It’s an impressive engineering feat.

Also, the occasional bare-breasted female comes as standard. ;)

A bargain right now if you’re so inclined.

Been making steady progress in Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One today. I’m hoping to have this wrapped up in the next few days.

Primal is a gorgeous looking game but I'm not sure it's enhanced on a pro or Xbox One....it is beautiful though, its the lighting I think.

Playing through Deus Ex HR again on PC. Hoping I can get the stuttery gameplay sorted. Looks nice and runs well apart from that momentary stutter.

These types of games are probably my favourite, I could play stuff like the Dishonored's, Prey and this series indefinitely. Every playthrough, there's something different.

My problem with it is its a boring ass grind fest and the weapons are not fun to use, which is the kiss of death in a game with such limited weaponry. Id like to give it a retry tho cause i enjoyed the characters and setting.

CP:

Ghost of a Tale
An absolutely, almost disgustingly charming level of adorableness and stunning visuals elevates this game to more than the sum of its parts. Its been nothing much but fetch quests and stealth gameplay, but its absolutely strawberry floating beautiful, and has so much character. Also the fact that all the items you need to find arent marked on your map would be a death knell for a lesser game and end up with you just running around bored, but in GoaT, it means you just explore Dwindling Heights inside and out and get a real sense of this being a real place.

Vermintide 2

Destiny's loot system, meets Left 4 Dead gameplay, set in Warhammer Fantasy. I love the setting, graphics are insanely good, the characters, lore and worldbuilding is brilliant, and its just a fun as hell FPS/Melee game. Its ridiculously tough on the higher difficulties tho. Like smash your keyboard tough.

Witcher 3
Finished Hearts of Stone and on to Blood and Wine now. Love the setting, but i think ive spent most of my time so far playing Gwent :lol:

Far Cry 3
I've completed the main story and am just getting a final couple of achievements and finishing off some of the side missions. Shouldn't take more than an hour now to be fully done and dusted with it. Pretty decent overall, bar a few gripes. Has taken about 35 hours to get to this point.

Xenoblade Chronicles
65 hours in now and I've just got to the first point where I really need to grind. Up to this point I've been coasting really - beating bosses on the first or at least the second attempt, and have had few problems when encountering enemies in new areas, etc - but I've suddenly reached a point where I really need to grind to be able to complete a quest. I don't mind, but it's quite tedious, especially when I've gone all this time without having to spend time purposely levelling up. It's actually put me off returning to it, temporarily, as I know that when I load it up I'm just going to be fighting the same enemies over and over. I probably need to be two levels higher than I am, and it'll take a while I think.

Started playing Dark Souls 3. It's a bit hard. I've gotten to the third world. The graphics are really impressive and it's one of those games that's worth playing just to see whats coming up next. Playing as the Knight as it seemed like the easiest class although seems like it'd be fun to go back and try playing as a magic character at some point.

Went back to both South Park FBW and Wolfenstein 2 and while South Park is great and I like the new battles it's not as funny as SoT.
Wolfenstein 2 on the other hand has a brilliant and well written story but I just can't get into the gameplay, shooting is great but no soon as you go on a gunning rampage you're dead, seriously annoying. Loved New Order honestly think it's one of the best FPS ever but this one is just okay.

Started Far Cry 5 today, and i'm very pleased to see that a shovel has been included in the game (though i've not had much of a chance to use it properly yet).

I expect to see extraordinary shovel skills uploaded in due course, Ver.

Doom 3 BFG Edition (X1S)

Wasn't aware this had been back catalogued so dug out my 360 copy and installed it on the old X1S.

Think this is about the 5th, maybe 6th time I've been through this and while I thoroughly enjoyed Doom 2016, I still prefer the horror angle of Doom 3.

I played Mega Man Zero Collection on my commute today. Jesus, I can't even beat the first level in the first game. I didn't really like the controls, so I changed them, but it hasn't really helped much.

FML.

And of course, still going through Deus Ex on the PC. It's strawberry floating sweet.

Moved on to Mario and Rabbids after completing Xenoblade, its very different and a great palette cleanser. Still on World 1 but its great so far, Im looking forward to things getting much harder, I heard theres a pretty serious spike a couple of worlds in.

Finally got around to giving Motorsport Manager a go this evening (after buying it when it was 75% off over the weekend), just finished my first race (didn't have much time so just the one for now) and it seems pretty good so far, got a 2nd and 3rd on my first race which I thought was decent enough! Definitely worth it for the £7 or so I bought it for, will have to start a career when I've got a bit more time on my hands.

Started Axiom Verge and Owlboy today.

Axiom Verge moves at a good pace and feels mostly good - just toes the line between frustrating and challenging on some screens. However, there's an annoying flicker effect on screen when playing docked where the colours change.

Owlboy is beautiful and the music is lush, but the controls feel like a mess to me. Every enemy is a panic. Just reached the Owl Temple though, so might take some time to settle in.

Beat that strawberry floater in Megaman Zero this morning, then blitzed through the next through levels. Not sure I like the structure of the game, but it largely feels very good to play. Love the beam sword/gun combo.

Been going through the first few chapters of Detective Pikachu and it feels like a my first Phoenix Wirght game, it's easy and quite basic, but the story is nice and Pikachu is entertaining and the real star of the game.
