This does sound amazing. Are current (PS4 /XBO) systems getting this complete package, too? I'm not quite see if the VR (PSVR) option is for the PS4 as well as the PS5 version, either?

I would imagine so. The way it worked with Hitman 2 was that you paid a small fee to import updated versions of all the levels from Hitman 1. I imagine it'll work similarly with Hitman 3.

Pokemon Diamond on DS Lite. I’m not that far into this but enjoying it so far. I’m just about to reach the first gym leader I think.

I’ve not really played a Pokemon game since gen 1 (and the GBA remake) plus a tiny bit of Diamond when it first launched but I’ve had a hankering to try another one for a while now.

Supraland - playing it on Game Pass and its really quite good. One thing to consider is that I really dislike 1st person platformers and this isn't really hacking me off so that must be a good sign.

Remember Me
Ehhh...I've gone back to this after a long break, and - about halfway through - it's already becoming a chore to play. I really want to like it, but the combat is so frustrating and tedious, and the rest of the game so linear, that it saps the fun from it. The writing and some of the lore is also laughable, meaning the only good points really are admiring the pretty levels and enjoying traversing buildings and environments. If they'd put fewer ideas in, and focused on making them better, it could've been a lot better.

Aegis Defenders
Bought this on Steam ages ago, but had completely forgotten what it was about. Turns out it's a mix of platforming and tower-defence, which I'm quite enjoying so far. Very early days, but early impressions are good.

Its a really nice game. It got too tricky for me at about 8 hours in, so i left i there, but its amazing how much love was put in to the project.

Clocking nearly 40hrs on Dragon Age Inquisition and I still haven't done [inlinespoiler]part where you had to leave Haven behind yet[/inlinlinespoiler], it's interesting considering you can get to that point much sooner (My boyfriend has done this) but I don't mind it, love talking to people and learning about the world :)

Also I sorted out my 360 as in deleted games off it that works on Xbox one, when keeping ones that doesn't - and played hour of Outrun Online. Finally got into it proper, very fun. I suck at it though, playing it on Very Easy setting!

Coming to the end of Dead Rising 2, and I'm surprisingly impressed by it.

I put so many hours into the original game. It was the first new game I got for my 360, after picking up GRAW and Oblivion with the console during the summer. Since it was also the only console I had, it was a rare time where I had no kind of backlog at all, and really got into replaying it. I enjoyed a lot of the quirks people considered to be bad, the save system, the time etc, and it felt unlike anything else I'd played before. Not sure why it's taken me this long to back to the series. Maybe the reputation that the series seemed to get from 3 and 4 put me off.

This one is a little more lenient. I find I can rescue most survivors/kill the psychos without having to plot out the perfect run, but in this day and age, I appreciate that. There are just too many games available to me now to be repeating the same one over and over. I know I'm spending a lot less time experimenting with crazy weapons like I did in the first one, but most of the combo weapons are a lot of fun. I love the survivors are so much more capable now too.

Not sure whether to just leave it here, or try out Dead Rising 3.

I'd say give it a try, I really loved it and also lot more forgiving on time management (although it does give you choice of doing it with DR1 time system if you prefer that). It's not good as first two, but I still really enjoyed it!

Avoid 4th though.

Made a little progress in Pokémon Diamond over the past couple of days. I got my first Gym badge, caught a couple of Pokémon with incredibly low encounter rates and made it to a flowery city. I think I need to head to a wind farm next but that will have to wait for another day.

I’m about 5hrs in to Knights and Bikes. It’s a really fun, sweet game. I bet it is even better playing through it in co op, but still worth trying if you don’t have the luxury of friends.

DR3 is my favourite by far.

Currently trying to play Jurassic Park : The game

Can’t even skip the cutscenes. It’s 2020 & I can’t skip cutscenes :| :fp:

I can’t roll my eyes hard enough. Hang on....

.... here it.... comes .... :roll: .

I’m so pissed off I'm going to roll my eyes some more.



:roll: :roll:



Still annoyed.

:roll:


Can’t skip cutscenes. FML :roll:


I swear, I hope these other Tell Tale games have skippable scenes.

Because if not....

if you want skippable cutscenes in Telltale games I don't think these games are right for you!

Although Jurassic Park is considered worst one of their games (I agree, still enjoyed my time with it but wouldn't replay it)

Telltale’s Jurassic park gets so clunky as it goes on. The last episode runs terribly, it really chugs at points and you are never sure if it has crashed or not.

My friend sent me a copy of monster hunter stories on 3ds and I've really got into it (a lot more than I thought I would!)

Ooh! I have that in my gaming backlog and it does look really neat, Tsunade - I like the graphic styling! Have you tried any Monster Hunter games before?

I can't say that I have, I do like a good RPG and I've really been getting into this. The grind hasnt been too hard and going into dens has been quite interesting, you never know what egg you'll come out with!

It sounds really neat. A good time to be playing it, too, with a sequel currently in development for Switch!
