Still plugging away at Grounded with P3DZ… Jawa you should join us and build us a fancy base.

Still Undead Nightmare, enjoying it but nowhere near as much as the main game, the constant need to clear towns and cleanse graveyards (which have an increasing amount of dead) is quite tiring to be honest, this is definitely not a DLC that rivals or surpasses the main game like we see from the odd DLC pack.

Edit, getting a little annoyed now, need some dynamite to continue the main quest, but I can't find any.

I always wondered why Undead Nightmare was so well received at the time. It bored the hell out of me.

Playing Fire Emblem on GBA. I think it's called Blazing Blade? Pretty good so far.

Barely managed to get through any games this year. But haven't bought anything so far.

I've got clinically fed up with Undead Nightmare after running around for an hour yesterday, trying to find some dynamite to progress the main quest to no avail, it's a solid bit of DLC, but not a patch on the main game, which other than a glitch around quick draw shootouts, was a flawless experience on the Switch. Happy enough to leave my time with it there for now, maybe I'll have the motivation to return to it one day and finish it off, don't think I've got that much left, but I'm fed up running around the map, saving/re-saving towns in the hope I find some dynamite :lol:

Can of Wormholes continues to delight. I'm in the endgame now, I think, and the latest twist the game lobbed at me got a good chuckle out of me when I figured out what was going on. Love it when a puzzle game does that.

With Final Fantasy V 100% done, I've moved onto Final Fantasy VI.

Holy hell, people aren't joking when they said this is one of their best. Added so much after V and I'm really enjoying it a lot (although I am in grinding mode of getting Gau fifty rage abilities). It's also refreshing that main protag is female, even though techically there are multiple - I like how at points you can pick what one to do first, this feels like huge after V whereabouts I to V was small improvements/additions (although I'd say IV can be considered big improvement in terms of story since 1&3 didn't really have story)

Everybody's Golf World Tour - My new PS3 arrived so after setting it up I've had a go on one of my first PS3 games and I'm really glad that it still plays very well, as much as I want new EG game (yes don't worry I am huffing copium I know) it's not like I can't play older games and this was first Everybody Golf game I got into so it's nostaglia filling (though I am playing lot better than before thanks to all time I've put on Everybody's Golf 2 on PS1 lmao)

Did you see that game that the same dev made for the switch? I've forgotten what it was called but it was essentially Everybody's Golf but without the brand name as far as I'm aware.

FFVI is awesome. Story does some really bold things. Enjoy it!

Metroid Fusion, not aged a day thankfully, done the first parts in sectors 1,2 and 4, just entered sector 3. It looks brilliant on the Switch screen.

Clap Hanz Golf.

Looks like a decent enough game but there's no PC version as yet.

It's basically same one as one on Apple Arcade (different name there though) but 30fps instead of 60fps and hearing quite mixed opinions on it (Vs apple arcade one)

I'll probably buy it even if I'm not fan of the characters design, just want to see if there's sale (or if it's going to come to PC lol)

Looking forward to it! I'm still looking for enemies that Gau still hasn't learnt :lol: If nothing in couple of hours (it makes good gil farming as well potion/hi potions if nothing else since no XP gain in that area) I'll move on and go back later. I know I've seen ones I've not had Gau learnt from but he already leaped on another enemy so he wasn't in my party at time. RNG is mean.

Oh that's name on Apple Arcade, on Switch it's called "Easy Come Easy Golf". What a crap name :lol:

SiFu - PS5 - playing on easy mode, this is fantastic fun. So stylish and the opening 15 minutes are some of that best in gaming. Going from The Raid to Oldboy. Very enjoyable and despite being terrible at it I'm still feeling like I'm making progress thanks to permanent unlocks.

God of war ragnarok - having only just played Valhalla DLC and absolutely loving it, it got me wanting to play main game again so I’ve started new game + on second hardest difficulty and seems a sweet spot. Valhalla taught me a lot about the combat so it’s fun going through from the start. I’m suitably impressed that new game + does offer challenge but also new upgrades. Still think the more focused story of GOW (2018) is better but I do like how they expanded the scope in almost every way with this.

I really wanted to like Undead Nightmare, but I remember giving up when I literally couldn't move more than a few steps without being attacked by something. Ammo was scarce, I couldn't defend myself, and it became a frustrating to slog just to try and get across the street, let alone do anything more. Such a disappointing bit of DLC compared to all the hype it had.

I was expecting it to be better than it was, especially with how generally well regarded it is, some players seem to rate it higher than the main game, somehow.

I bought a monthly sub to Fallout 76 and so - after a small break - I'm back playing it. Feels good 8-) .
