Did anyone pick up the new FIFA on XBO or PS4? I’ve not picked one up for a couple of years but I fancy playing it.

Long Live Switch Squad!

Playing quite a lot of No Mans Sky at mo. It's gorgeous looking at times and it's a very chill game too.

Also still playing SoD2, onto a new map, like NMS above, after numerous patches both run really well.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. I was given this ages ago but never got round to playing it. For some reason I’ve had a hankering for some Metroidvania lately so I’m finally playing it.

So far I’d say it was a good hybrid of Symphony of the Night and Aria of Sorrow what with the button combo abilities and enemies dropping their souls, sorry ‘shards’ to further augment your powers.

Finished Astral Chain, very enjoyable even though it doesn't hold up to repeat playing. The game rewards just powering up one creature, so it can get boring. The game has some great ideas but repeats them multiple times. It does look amazing, music is great too.

Nice mix of Star Wars Jedi Academy and The Witcher 3 currently, with my daily dose of Animal Crossing for good measure. I’d forgotten how good (for the most part) Jedi Academy is, lightsaber combat is great and having that from the start just makes it a fun game unlike Outcast which took a bit too long to get going with the poor gunplay mechanics.

Not a lot at the moment. I've dropped F76 and that was my main game for most of the past year.

I've been dabbling with Breath of the Wild and that seems to be fun; although I'm only playing in short bursts.

Revealed most of the map in AC: Odyssey - which has been an odyssey - I started this back in July! Hopefully will sweep up most of the main quests relatively quickly from this point on. Not sure I'm enjoying it. Could be much more satisfying if it wasn't so stupidly big.

Explored Ancient Basin in Hollow Knight. I have access to 1 of the dreamers, went to find the other one in the City of Tears. Watcher Knight wrecked me, I wasn't expecting that! I was able to avoid the pair of them easily enough for a bit, so maybe it's not too bad? I had to go to bed last night so I didn't attempt it beyond that.

Found my copy of Crash of the Titans for DS and actually it's a pretty decent version, the graphics look great for the handheld and the levels reminds me a bit of old Crash Bandicoot, but I'm not that keen on the Titan mechanic as it just turn the game into a mindless brawler, jacking off the many monsters just isn't very fun. Still it has it's moments.

Still playing Guacamelee.

Enjoying it but these tedious arena fights are starting to bore me to strawberry floating tears. I just wanna get on with the game.

Bioshock Infinite

Why is this game about racism full of stereotypical ethnic characters and dumb tropes? All "yessirs" and "me so sad, me so ronery". It really is empty in its message, isn't it? Not a strawberry floating patch on 1 or 2. Story, gameplay, level design, art direction, everything is just bad by comparison.

I think Infinites Story and Art Direction are fine, well the story gets very confusing till the third act. It's gorgeous visually, I did prefer Rapture but I wouldn't knock Infinites visuals...

Infinite is a 7/10 game. Always was. Intriguing ending, but yeah, that's all I got from it. It really wasn't deserving of all the accolades it got at the time.

Not really a huge Bioshock fan anyway. I think the second one is the best from a gameplay standpoint (Minerva's Den is a great bit of DLC).

Bioshock 2 is definitely the best game. One of the biggest things bugging me about Infinite is that I can only carry two weapons. It's a pointless restriction.

I might actually give up on it.

I think you should see it through till the end, and the post ending DLC is pretty good.

I'd rank the Bioshock trilogy as up with Halo 1-3 and Half-Life 2 and it's episodes. I'm a MAJOR fan.

I popped Battlefield 5 onto my SSD over the weekend and it's almost a different game. Of course load times are much faster but the UI is fast and responsive and everything just works. Battlefield games this gen have been notorious for hitching and UI issues, bizarre that the problem seems to be it wasn't optimized for a HDD. Anyone getting a Series X and Gamepass should check it out.

What version did you play originally? I got it for the PC and it was s world away from the console version in terms of how it felt. Console version was yanky which really hampered the game feel. Loved zipping around on a Gsync 100+ FPS setup. This isn't a master race post as I've all but given up on PC gaming.

Still playing Guacamelee.

Spent my afternoon fighting Javier the Jackass. What a load of cheap shite. Whichever dickhead made this boss, I hope you stand in dog muck on your way home. I’ve played some shite bosses over the years but this is up there with the rest of them.

Ooooo my names Javier & I’m wearing a tiger mask because I’m bald & I’m about six foot eight & built like a gooseberry fool brick house. I’m that strawberry floating big & docile I can’t turn around to wipe my own ass. I have not a fighting pattern & I’m as more erratic than Donald a Trump brain cells.

God give me strength & pray for the devs when I get to the final boss...

Edit: put down the little tigger like a vet putting down a poorly animal.

Still Jedi Academy, some of the missions are a bit crap though so I’m taking advantage of the warp points via the cheat menu :lol:
