Also started my replay of Resident Evil 7 seeing as it's enhanced. Looks phenomenal.

Red Dead Redemption. X1S

My third play through, but man it still delivers. While (obviously) not up to visual delights of the 4K version on X, it does look a tad crisper, runs a damn sight smoother at a locked 30fps (no massive frame drops), and load times are greatly improved. As the X1S is home to a new Xbox account I've also been doing a bit of achievement hunting, which has seen me explore a lot more than previous times I've played it.

Lego Batman 2 on PS3. I’m about 2/3 of the way through the main campaign and so far so Lego game but I like Lego games so that’s not a problem.

I had no idea it was on Gamepass until I started it up yesterday without putting the disc in. What a time to be alive.

I like the Berserker bit, the Ultimate edition plays rather well to this day.

Also Gears 2-3 and Judgement Day all hold up too.

Been playing AC Origins.
The setting's great, one of the best game worlds ever imo, but I can't help but feel that you can't ever really interact with it, particularly in the cities. I'd have loved for a few more little details and variation between the Egyptian/Roman/Greek towns, even if it came down to weapons, clothes and Red Dead Redemption style minigames.
The writing, plot and character design of AC has always grated with me, and this is no different. Still, enjoying it and just got to the fighting arena, which seems pretty cool.

Flipping between Fable 2and RDR on X1S.

Still playing Far Cry 5, completed this last night, it looks straightforward yet was actually bastard hard, took more than a dozen attempts to get it right.

While I'm still playing RDR, today I've also returned to Mad Max. (PC).

Really like this game. The vehicle handling and combat, along with the unarmed combat, excels in my opinion and is throughly satisfying. The look and feel of the game is also excellent. Just finished removing all of threats in Jeets territory and now continuing on with the story a little before freeing up another area.

Taking a break from Max and RDR last night I decided to try out a couple more of these back cat games I've been snapping up.

Mirrors Edge and Burnout Paradise.

Both look much crisper, smoother and run fantastic. Mirrors Edge in particular, while always quite stylish, is a real beauty.

Im really impressed in how Microsoft have handled back catalogue on the X1S. It has breathed new life into games I might not have returned to again.

Still plugging away at FE Shadows of Valentia. On chapter 4. Alm's army sucks, Celica is a moron. Those are my main two gripes, it's a better game than Conquest and Birthright.

Just chipping away at the remaining two celebration pictures in Kirby Star Allies. The file says 100% but I say no.

Splitting my time at the moment between

God of War - Only a couple of hours in but I'm constantly getting my arse handed to me in combat. Haven't really found the flow yet. Lovely looking game though and the interaction with the main characters is brilliantly done.

Super Mario Odyssey - Finished the main game and now on to hoovering up those moons. Such a wonderful game, it's the main obsession of my 8 year old son too.

I've been playing Steredenn via Xbox Game Pass.

It's absolutely wonderful. I confess when I saw the screenshots it looked a little uninspiring, but it plays wonderfully and the random nature of the powerups makes it quite a tactical experience. Highly recommended for anyone who loves an old school shmup.

Been finishing off Kirby doing the Ultimate Choice Boss Rush. Man it's difficult.
Just about beat the highest level and then there's ANOTHER version. Oh boy. Any tips would be appreciated as I barely survived the last one.

Currently jumping between Pokémon Crystal and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Just met Vandham in XC2 and I'm currently getting a Staryu up to speed on my team in Crystal.

For both these difficulties I always had Chef Kawasaki in at least one slot for some extra health boosts (should occur 4 - 6 times throughout due to cooldown) during battles.

And in my opinion Marx seems to be the most capable to play as, not least because he is pretty much invulnerable while performing his black hole and 'Marx flip ultima' moves.

Thanks for the advice, I was able to beat it similarly with Vividria on healing duty, and cheesing it with Stone Kirby's invincibility. Felt kinda cheap, but it worked!

Played some more of Far Cry 4 last night. As with all these games repetitive, but thoroughly enjoyable.

Will play some more Mad Max and RDR this evening, but tomorrow I'm going to give Monster Hunter World a bash.
