Returned to Pes 2018 (gearing up for world cup) and feeling Jawa's pain. Was relegated from division 5 down to 7 - just couldn't stick the ball in the net! Though had some improvement tonight - back up to division 6. Woohoo! Hope I don't get too sucked into the pes blackhole though, have a few other games I would like to start!

Super Mario Bros 2
Still not convinced by this. The main mechanic - pulling stuff out of the ground and throwing it - just isn't fun to me. I'll push on though as I want to play through these old Mario games.

Mega Man 2
Having a lot more fun with this. Just the right amount of challenge, varied gameplay, great music, tight controls, etc. Nice strategy involved with the weapons and order of who you fight as well.

Hey, dmin - it's cool to see you back playing PES again! I'm back in Division 7 now and using Villarreal, playing well, controlling the posession... and not scoring :fp: :lol: .

I know what you mean, dude. I've only really played PES this past week; I was annoyed with it but now I'm right into it :-).

Having finished Fire Emblem Birthright yesterday I've went ahead and started Conquest under same difficulty / mode; so far I like the challenge and story's better although there are some silly things. Regardless, got to Chapter 12 -- gonna have to do castle battles just to try get social links high.

This sounds cool, dmin. I don't game that late very frequently, but I'll keep an eye out for you online :-).

Just started Destiny 2. So far, enjoying it - feels just like Destiny but with a different story. No bad thing.....

Yes?

Just finished playing a bit of SFV. Man, I'm terrible at it. :lol:

Now playing Doom, then I'm going to jump back into AC Origins.

Having bought Mad Max for about $10 I think in a US PS Store sale about 2 years ago, I finally started playing it last week, maybe prompted by the fact it’s now been free on PS+ :fp:

Anyway, I’m quite enjoying it. The combat isn’t as strong as the Arkham games, but it’s not bad. The driving is great though. Love ripping drivers out of their seats with the harpoon, and the landscape is destroyed beauty in a can. I’m just cruising about, clearing camps and finding goodies. Only started advancing the story last night.
A fun game. More tonight!

It's always great to hear that more people are enjoying Mad Max! It's one of my all-time favourite single-player games and I will definitely give it another play-through in the future. Enjoy the action!

Just finished third game of Monster Prom(PC) and it's really fun game; great laughs to have with bizarre outcomes (plus, it features cute werewolf :eyes: ) - surprisingly lot of depth too.

Finding it hard lately to really get into a game, tried playing a few but nothing seems to be holding my interest for long.

Anyone else find they have this at times?

Just started God of War. Getting a bit depressed by Kratos but it’s pretty looking and fun to play.

Probably sacrilege to say but binned off the SoTC remaster....played it back in the day but as impressive as the update is those controls are just an exercise in teeth gnashing frustration.

Have Hitman GoTY to play as well. Looks like there is an ocean of content and gameplay there so should keep me going for the foreseeable future.

Absolutely. It’s a weird thing as I get phases where it is like the thought of playing games and reading about them is actually far more preferable to the reality of playing them. I dunno but sometimes I think it’s almost like a subconscious feeling of guilt in wasting time but strangely I never get this watching films, TV or reading etc

Very much this, I sometimes browse GR and Resterera for ages reading up on games and opinions but then when it comes to it I struggle to fully immense myself into a game.

I think I'm generally going off of games. I sometimes wonder if I'm playing them because that is what I've always done. Very few games do I play where I'm actually having fun, they mainly just annoy me with every game having something that I find frustrating.

Yes?

Finished my run of Gold with just Feraligatr (plus HM ones of course), finished on level 80 in about 15 hours (so not exactly quick), I'll probably leave it a bit before doing the same with Typhlosion and Meganium. Will probably jump back into Xenoblade Chronicles 2 or Zelda for a bit now.

I’ve enjoyed some games over the past year but the ones I have enjoyed tend to be the shorter, less story driven experiences. When I hear about a game having a deep, 30 hour+ story it puts me off.
