Dark Souls 3
Sonic Mania
Streets of Rage 4
Captain Toad Treasure Tracker
Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze
Fire Emblem Three Houses
X-COM Chimera Squad
Tabletop Simulator

That's a fine list of games to be getting overwhelmed by to be fair!

If you count "currently playing" as things that have been touched in the last month then I think I'm at a similar number. I need to start getting some of them finished off soon or they're going to fall into the bucket of games that never make it that far!

I'm in similar.

My currently playing list is

Animal Crossing - New Horizons (which is ruining everything else to be honest)
God of War (about 2/3rds of the way through)
Arkham Knight (seen the first ending but want to finish the side quests off and have the DLC)
Hollow Knight (started but didn't grab me)
Ring Fit (this I plan to keep plugging away at every few days)
FIFA 19 (doing coop seasons with my mate)

I still need to go back to Three Houses too as I got 4-5 hours into that.

6 odd hours in to Okami on Switch and just finished the first main dungeon (I think). I know I'm preaching to the converted here but this is a genius level game. If (and I don't really want to know either way so as not to spoil it) it carries on at this level then it's going to be something really, really special. Just praying there is no forced, badly implemented stealth section.

Concerning playing lists, am I the only person here that pretty much plays one game at a time? :shifty:

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Nope, I'm the same as you.

One game at a time. 8-)

FEAR 2
Hmm. This is reasonably enjoyable I guess. I have no strawberry floating idea what's going on with the plot, but the general gun-play and such is decent enough. It feels quite 'padded' - almost definitely a game that will feel like it's overstayed its welcome I think - but I think I'm about 2/3 of the way through, so we'll see. I'm really not a fan of some of the enemies - particularly the bizarre zombie things that are linked to each other and don't know when to die - and the scripted events are a bit crap as well. What's that? I need to get to the upper level of the school, but all the staircases are blocked? Oh, what's this, a strawberry floating helicopter has just fallen out of the sky for no reason and destroyed part of the roof, conveniently creating a ramp up the next floor. I mean, there's feeling contrived, and then there's something like that. :lol:

Crypt of the Necrodancer
Bought this a while ago, and either forgot or didn't realise that it was 'rogue-like', which immediately made me :dread: when I realised. Early on I was quite put off, but as I got into it and figured out how things worked, I got more into it. Zone 1 is good, mainly because the music's brilliant, but Zone 2's music isn't great at all, and so I'm struggling to keep wanting to play as a result. Will see how far I can get though.

It's the only way that I can actually finish anything.

Replaying Black Flag. Love this game. Hate the future bits though.

Got past Residence building and unlocked all of doors with last key. It's not so bad once you learn to manage items but man fighting plant boss is not fun... God bless Rebecca for free heal after said fight.

I've saved at room with new key in inventory, gonna play more tomorrow.

When I do liked it back then but now it's honestly becoming one of my favourite games.

The main missions in Black Flag are really mediocre. Game still has excellent pirating.

I think Assassins Creed should abandon the future bits. I can't remember Odyssey having many at all, at least not in last like 20hrs.

Add me to the list of only play one main game at a time. I might dabble with a sports game or something in between the main one I am playing but that’s it.

Still playing through Metroid Samus Returns (N3DS) at the moment and really liking it still. Only playing in small chucks at the moment and only reached Area 2 so far but it’s great fun.

Also tried out WWE All Stars (N3DS) and I’m surprised it has all the content of the 360/PS3 game including the DLC. Plays great on 3DS as well, graphically it’s obviously not on par with the other console versions but it looks like the N64 WWF games which I actually quite like.

Long Live Switch Squad!

Chris playthrough on RE1 beaten, but I'm Def going back and do both characters on Normal. I feel with 0 to 1 deaths across both Jill and Chris playthroughs (and I only died on Jill because I was dumb) it's about time to ramp it up to Normal.

Hard can wait till I'm used to Normal!

I asked my friends what kind of playthrough I should go for on new run of Resident Evil 1 on Xbox One, and they settled on me doing no save Jill run...

I attempted and failed at Vs Lisa fight :cry: But that honestly was one of best gaming experience I've ever had, definitely trying again tomorrow.

I'm pretty proud I did snake fight without taking a single hit, and spider boss only hit me once. Still feel I can improve more, will keep at it until I've done it once!

Return of the Obra Dinn - So much to solve and so little hand holding :lol: Overwhelmed isn't the word!
I knew the gist of the gameplay but nothing of the story. But I am so glad I went in not knowing as there's one moment where the game <REDACTED FOR YOUR ENJOYMENT> and what I found myself looking at left me in a kind of disbelieving and confused af awe. It was literally an amazing scene. Oh and, this game is the epitome of Just one more go or to be more precise: Just one more body to materialise and attempt to partially solve.

Ah, the first time I went for Ink is for Squids in Resident Evil was one of the most stressful runs I've ever done. Getting taken out by a Hunter about two thirds of the way through was fury inducing. :lol:

Good luck going for it again Seven, you'll definitely get there now that you know what to look out for! My only other tip is to be *ultra* careful in the lab when you have to walk through it with the explosive, make sure you've cleared a path first.

I've been playing on Easy so hunters aren't big pain in butt, although they do still make me nervous as well boulders :slol:

Yee I went through it twice and memorized enemy placements, although I'll probably just take flame round grenade launcher for zombies so they don't come back. Crimson Reds still scare me!

Although I won't lie, I switch from modern controls to tank controls before picking up bomb... :oops:

Amazing game. Loved every minute of it. The only bad thing is that there’s nothing else really like it.

Right now I'd just be happy to solve 3 more and never play anything like this again :slol: I love it really though :wub:

Last session: I had no clue how to progress the story (as it were) so attempted to solve some of the ones I had on the go. Managed to get another 6 :toot: Granted they were blindingly obvious and I'd missed some obvious hints :oops: :fp: but I am still chuffed :msgreen:
