Over the past few weeks, I've got back into the Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo (3DS) lifestyle. I've built the Dream Suite and the coffee shop, the Nook Store has grown to become the T.I.Y design, I've started a collection for the third town bridge, I've invited several characters to the camp site via amiibo cards, and I have a massive debt with Nook thanks to a small side room being added to my humble abode. Over five years on and I still really enjoy the game .
I've also spent time getting back into the world of hacking via Watch Dogs (PS4). I've completed all of the "privacy invasion" missions and all of the "QR codes" missions, earning a couple of relatively rare trophies.
I haven't played anything else; I just focussed on those two. It feels good to have made some decent progress . I'm now thinking about replacing Watch Dogs with Final Fantasy XIV Online (PS4), taking a similar approach by re-learning the basics and then sticking with the game to learn how things work.
That’s my second run of Breath of The Wild over and done with, I think I can say I’m just about done with this game now. Nearly 230 hours over two platforms, two run throughs, I’ve loved nearly every minute of it (even if I was slightly disappointed with the 2nd DLC package, certainly made up for it with the last divine beast and boss though!).
I’ll probably reacquaint myself with Mario Kart 8 now I’ve bought Deluxe for my Switch, been months since I last played it.
REmake on PS4. I’m not very far yet just made past the door that breaks if you open it too many times and found the lighter. I might start it over as I think I could have taken a more efficient path through the first floor. My inventory was full most of the time with stuff I don’t really need yet so I missed a bunch of items that I’m just going to have to back for later.
>Observer_ on PC. Noticed that this had dropped as one of the Twitch Prime freebies at some point without me realising and thought I'd give it a whirl as it was one I had my eye on but never got round to playing.
strawberry float me it's a good game.
Ticks a whole load of my boxes - immersive, inventive, absolutely bloody beautiful to look at, and very respectful of the player whilst not holding their hand in a way that would destroy the experience. I get the feeling it isn't a terribly long experience and if I didn't have to get up early in the morning I could have easily seen myself storming through the whole thing in one night!
Since coming back from France I've been playing KH games. Beaten KH2FM and I plan to 100% it but as it's tough bosses, I've decide to play little of KH2FM till I get fed up thing, so I went ahead and started BBS FM. Ventus is beaten on Proud, so started Terra on same difficulty -- it's good fun so far.
Tales of Symphonia This is occupying most of my gaming time at the moment. It's the first Tales game I've played, and it ticks all the JRPG boxes when it comes to world map, towns, upgrades, battles, etc. The plot is a bit 'meh', and is increasingly confusing/difficult to care about, but it doesn't feel like a major issue. Some annoying characters, but that's par for the course, and the audio is pretty badly compressed at times and quite low quality - namely the voices (I'm playing the Gamecube version). Otherwise it's pretty good.
Riptide GP 2 Really enjoying this. Always good to have something that's quick and easy to pick up and play, and this fits the bill for sure. Looks nice, handles well, and there's a decent level of increasing challenge and progression. There's some horrible rubberbanding later in the game, but that's the only negative I've found so far.
Made it back to the mansion after the trip outside in REmake cleared out a bunch of the Helmet key rooms, defeated the snake but then clumsily got myself killed by a zombie and rage quit as I hadn't saved in a while.
Finally loaded up Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I’d forgotten just how brutal the Ai item selection can be, I’ve only finished a few races with the maximum 10 coins due to getting hit constantly after the last coin collection bit.
Edit, just finished with 1 coin then red shell, blue shell and lightning all within 2 corners!
