Over the weekend I finished the first two DLC chapters for Wolfenstein II. Most of my thoughts went in comments on the "What Are You Playing" story on the front page, but I just wanted to repeat how wonderful they were. Agent Silent Death's chapter was as good as Gunslinger Joe's but for totally different reasons, and it was amazing how varied they made the same game feel.

Really looking forward to the third and final chapter, hoping that they're a sign of the franchise's direction after the seriously wonky, badly-paced main game's campaign.

Currently playing 2048 in WipEout Omega Collection. It's tons of fun, the music is great and the visuals are amazing. Still need to get a better feel for the gameplay but I can definitely see myself trying to 100% the entire campaign in the future (unless the game gets really hard later on, lol).

My main gripe with 2048 however is that the blue boost pads are so freaking hard to see, they blend in with the blue track so easily. Wish they could've made them a different colour.

@KratosMD You've reminded me that Omega Collection is yet another game that I'd like to get back to. Played through the 2048 season and pretty much forgot to go back.

There are some pretty tough trophies in the Vita version - which I assumed are the same. Obviously not impossible - but you've got to be pretty Zen to get the lot I reckon.

Check out some of the Zone game play on YouTube - it is ridiculous.

@KALofKRYPTON The Zone challenges in 2048 are bonkers. The game is tough in general since you don't have a difficulty slider, which is why I kinda like HD a bit more. However, the thing I don't like about HD is that the tracks are too narrow compared to 2048, so there are definitely things to both like and dislike about both games.

@KratosMD Yeah, the 2048 tracks are generally wider and slightly more forgiving than most of what's in HD. I recall an interview with a developer saying that they had the Vita screen size in mind and didn't want to make tracks too narrow. All of the HD tracks were from previous WipEout games. Loads from Pure/Pulse.

Zones are crazy. I can do Ok once I've had a few days to bed back in to it.

I hope you can sink your teeth in to it. Other than Fusion & 64, it's always been a really satisfying franchise.
If you ever have the opportunity to play Wip3out - I suggest you do. Relatively late in the PS1 lifecycle - but amazing design work.

Playing through Dragons Dogma at the moment, and just purchased Burnout Paradise, so will be playing through that as well.

@ToddlerNaruto I loved First Light. Really enjoyed Second Son too. Did everything apart from the paper bits.
Playing evil was great fun!

Amazing Spider-Man 2 was actually pretty enjoyable. Fairly easy plat too.

I still need to replay Second Son as evil, when I run out of games to play.

As for Amazing Spider-Man 2, maybe I'll give it another chance, but it won't be for a long while. I've got more tempting games to play that I am actually interested in, no offense.

So I've got into Ratchet and Clank Remaster, having not played any Ratchet and Clank games before (or that I can remember) and must say, albeit 2 years too late, this game is great. Looks amazing and really fun to play. Admittedly, I did spend half an hour trying to get one of the racing trophies (because I suck) but even that was quite fun.

@Rudy_Manchego Yes the R&C games are competent 3rd person shooters with some solid platforming, mild puzzling, and no shortage of personality. The crazy weapons are the real star of the show. The game is very well polished and just... in a word, fun!

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

KratosMD

@Rudy_Manchego Yeah it's really good. Hopefully Sony finds a way to bring more R&C games over to the PS4 because, even though the 2016 game is really good, I still think A Crack in Time and Ratchet & Clank 3 are the better games. Let's hope people like you get to play them on PS4 eventually!

@Kidfried Going back to that comment section conversation we had late last week, you were right... played Virginia and absolutely gosh-darn loved it. I was fascinated and hooked right up to the end, and then to realise that I'd only gotten 14% trophies (when most walking simulators give you the platinum after the credits) was great, because it gives me even more incentive to go through again later this evening. I haven't played anything quite like it before; I was supremely impressed on almost every level. It was beautiful.

So very pleased I fronted the extra £2 for the edition with the soundtrack, because the music was gorgeous and such an integral part of the narrative. The references to Twin Peaks were strong but, as you said, it was very much its own thing. There are plot elements I'm still not 100% certain on, and will look for clues in the second playthrough, but I think I've got a handle on the overall story and it's a brave one to tackle. Parts of it made me quite emotional, in both good and bad ways.

Although it did make me chuckle, as I think it deserves the award for 'Quickest Contradiction in a Videogame'... at the beginning, it opens with "this is a true story based on events that happened in 1992" and then, about a minute later, flashes up "this is a work of ficiton; any similarity to events or people, living or dead, is purely coincidental". Make your mind up!

Thanks again for the additional information you gave me, and the little extra push I needed to make the purchase. No regrets; this might even displace Firewatch as my favourite example of the genre.

@Th3solution @KratosMD Yeah the game is just fun and really well made. I'm tempted to get the Ratchet and Clank trilogy on the Vita as it is on sale for like £6 at the moment so I can try the other games.

@RogerRoger Wow! You put a lot of my feelings on the game in words perfectly.

And I think the "contradiction" is a reference to Fargo. The movie (and tv series) start out with the line "This is a true story. The events depicted took place in Minnesota in [year].", while from the get go it is clear that the story is way too strange to be anything other than fiction. Have you seen Fargo?

I'm glad you liked it. I feel recommending a game like Virginia is insanely difficult, because it's unlike most other games. Fortunately it turned out alright. Also, I'm jealous of you owning the soundtrack. The music is goooood.

Talking about walking sims. I'm thinking about picking up Dear Esther. Did you or anyone here play it? There's a tour going on this summer in which they do a live playthrough of the game in front of the public. Only difference is: the narration is fully live and so is the music. I wanna go, but I'm not going to buy tickets without having first played the game myself.

Regard my dear
It's all downhill from here

RogerRoger

@Kidfried No, I've never seen Fargo. Another recommendation? Because so far, you're batting a thousand!

Although your comments about recommendations being tough are dead-on. I've gotten one or two people to try games before that I was certain they'd love, only for them to turn around and kinda go "Was that it?" or, worse, just stop playing halfway through because it "didn't click" or something. Being so unlike anything else, Virginia is an even tougher thing to judge. I'm telling my friend about it via Skype right now and A: describing it with words is difficult enough, and B: I know the inevitable "Will I like it?" is coming and I don't know what to say!

Unfortunately, I've never played Dear Esther. The event you mention sounds delightful, though! I went to something similar for Star Trek, where they showed clips from the films and shows with speech and sound effects, and an orchestra played the music. If film, television or game soundtracks are as important to you as I think they might be, you'd love such an experience.

I don't get much time to game (I'd say around 7-8 hours per week max) so I try to play lots of different games within that time (little bits and pieces of games here and there). So, this week I've been playing some PES 2018, Guacamelee, Rugby League Live 3, Shadow of the Beast, Ratchet and Clank, Rime and Don Bradman Cricket.

If I get a bit of extra time at the weekends I try and play some multiplayer games with my 6 year old son - he loves Minecraft, Lego Worlds, Plants V Zombies 2, Towerfall Ascension, Goat Simulator, Speed Runners, Black & White Bushido etc.

My 4 year old daughter absolutely revelled in playing LocoRoco the other day as well which was lovely to see.

Burning through the Darksiders series again for a couple of easy platinums. Playing some nascar heat 2 online then moving onto the infamous games.

I bought me Tearaway Unfolded which is on sale now (€ 5,99).Looks brilliant and smart!

Praise the Sun, and Mario too.
