I'm stuck in Dishonored 2 in that morphing house place, literally have no idea where to go next. :fp:

Such a pity as it looks very pretty on 1X.

Reached chapter 5 on Ninja Gaiden Black earlier. I'm not especially great at this kind of game in general, and I know this is meant to be one of the harder ones, so it's taken some getting used to. The second boss riding the horse kicked my ass a few times before I got him. I'm having a much easier time since learning the Izuna Drop though.

What was incredibly annoying was having to replay almost all of chapter 4 because my Xbox One signed me out and for some reason that also shuts down any running games too. I swear the wi-fi in my XBO is faulty as download speeds are slow (I pretty much have to download stuff when it's in rest mode otherwise no progress will be made) and it's a dice roll whether it will even sign me in to XBL when I boot it up, even then it'll almost always sign me out at some point if I'm using it for more than 10 minutes. I can only assume it's something to do with the console itself as any other device's internet connection is fine, even PSN downloads at 10x the speed, for christ's sake.

World of Warcraft.

Decided to give it another shot as boyfriend wanted to play it, and enjoying it much more this time. Toxic people still exist unfortunately but I've joined discord group that helps people with shyness/anxiety issues to have fun with wow, and I don't feel like I'm being judged for being "new" to it (despite being pre 2009 player, lost my character though)

It still has things that annoys me and from what people said about the endgame it doesn't seem like it's worth it for me, but I'm enjoying the journey to 60 at the moment on Priest Tauren @ Doomhammer, lv20 ATM

Finally have Valkyria Chronicles 2 out of the way. A lot of mixed feelings about this one but I don't really see it as the big step down from the first game like a lot of people do. Improvements in a lot of places, but it doesn't go far enough to fix mechanical problems - and in fairness this kind of game is hard to balance/make mechanically tight - and while I don't think the school setting is necessarily bad the big focus on school hijinks is kinda...ugh. Also, a big selling point of the first game was how beautiful it was - obviously hard to recreate that beauty on the PSP, but it's a nice-looking game considering the limitations.

In a bit of a completionist mood at the moment so I guess I'll at least try everything out in WarioWare Gold/find all the minigames. Not that I haven't been enjoying this game but it's - unsurprisingly given its 'greatest hits' kind of goal - not as refreshing as Smooth Moves (my favourite) or Touched for me. I might have a more glowing opinion of the game when I delve more into it though. I've pretty much just given all the story modes a once over bar a few, and tried out some extras. Still a lot more to do.

Then I'm feeling like tackling the original Sonic games since I've never played them through.

They rebalanced scouts to counter scout rushing from the first game, but then they introduced fencers who are very OP, so yeah the balance is about as broken in both games.

The big advantage VC2 had to me was multiplayer. I co-oped most of what I played with a friend and it was good fun.

Okay, maybe I shouldn't have mentioned balance because I don't know if Valkyria II actually improved on that specific aspect of the gameplay, but overall I enjoyed it more in II.

As it happens I barely used Fencers (Armoured Techs rather), but I made great use out of Shocktroopers who get especially OP themselves later on - getting the flamethrower which can 1HKO a lot of units including cannon towers/gatling turrets from any side, and which I found to be the most useful weapon to tackle bosses with. To be honest, finding out strategies you could cheese out levels with was kind of fun.

Theres an incredibly sneaky way to complete that mission in about 2 minutes without alerting anyone. Theres a hidden entrance in the main lobby that lets you dart straight into Jindosh's room and bypass literally everything in the entire map :lol:

Yeah thats probably it, tho it does mean you miss some of the coolest level design in the game. Tho not as good as the Crack in the slab mission which is strawberry floating phenomenal

I've seen nearly every inch of that f**king gaf and yes it's impressive but I want to get on with the other stuff and DLC (which I own and is waiting).

Playing through South Park: Fractured But Whole.

About 20 hours in and have really enjoyed it. The humour is great and the I think it's quite well paced. It's not perfect, I don't think the battle system is quite challenging enough (I've whacked the difficulty up and it still feels balanced too far in the players favour) and I think Stick of Truth is better, but it's still been a great ride.

Crack in the Slab is one of the best, if not the best, FPS levels ever made.

I've been playing Song of the deep. I was really enjoying it but now I'm so lost its unreal and the map isn't worth gooseberry fool.

I'll persevere for a while just because I like roaming about in the sub.

I've also been playing Resogun as it was dirt cheap in the sale. Definitely not my usual kind of game but strawberry float me it's really cool.
