Talos Principle (****). That was one good game. Really loved the philosophical twists, if you can call them that. Great for those who liked Bioshock's themes too. Now heading out to achieve that platinum, if I have the patience...

Just beaten Infamous: Second Son for the first time - just to sweep up a few collectibles and probably have a break from it with Gat out of Hell before going back for my Expert Evil playthrough and the platinum trophy.

Beat Assassin's Creed Syndicate, which I thought was alright. It was definitely better than Unity. And I also beat Witcher 3's first DLC, Hearts of Stone, which I loved. I will be getting Blood and Wine after I finish Mad Max, which I just started today. So far so fun.

Halo Anniversary (360) - My first experience with the series, and it was a pretty good time. (completed on "Normal")

Gameplay/Design: Despite it's age (as a remake of the first), I felt the gameplay held up really well (though I don't have much experience with FPS), as it never felt like the base gameplay was holding me back. However, the vehicle controls were a tad akward, and while vehicles could be fun once you got decently accustomed to the control, that final escape segmet was nerve wrecking (to the point where I'm not sure I want to experience it again). The rest of the game was well designed though, even if there was a bit of deja vu in the environments (understandable due to it's age, and I never really got turned around).

Graphics/Art - Character models could be a tad stiff in cutscenes, but other than that the remastered graphics looked just as modern as any other 360 game I've played, give or take. I really appreciated the aesthetic overhaul, however. While the old graphics weren't really bad (I switched back occasionally, to check them out), they were darker & overall more bland. The new graphics were overall brighter, with a more rich use of color, and some truly bright neon lighting (used both in decoration, and plasma blasts). Really gave it the vibe of an epic sci-fi action adventure.

Now I can say I've played a Halo game, and if I ever get the itch for a FPS, I now have a series I can go to. I really liked mission 6 (what atmosphere).

I finished Unravel (****) tonight. I finished the game, but I'm still going for the no-death run. somewhere in the next few weeks. The game is good. Gameplay wise it's not the next Mario, but it's got enough charm (in story and graphics) to make it stand next to the best platformers of this generation.

Monument Valley & Dokuro (both on Android)

I've heard lots of good things about Monument Valley, so I picked it up when it was on sale a couple weeks ago. What an absolutely breathtaking experience. I didn't think it was particularly hard (except for maybe the final section in the bonus level), but each level had it's own unique twist, and it was one of the most beautiful games I've ever played.

Dokuro is sort of an "escort puzzle platformer", where you play as a little skeleton minion who betrays the "Dark Lord" by freeing the princess in the castle tower. In each level you'll have to find a way to deal with all the obstacles standing in the way of the princess & her way forward. I won't say how many levels there are because that'd be a story spoiler, but it is a full game, and I'd say it was worth the $2 I spent on it (despite the fact it has some issues you'd come to expect from escort missions). I believe it's on Vita too, though I heard it's more expensive on that platform.

Finished Gears of War 2. Major step-up from the previous game. More variety and basically a lot more focus on fun gameplay compared to the constant gunplay in the first game.

Also finished Mega Man 3. Good game like the previous one, but I felt like it dragged for far too long. Mega Man 2 had the perfect amount of content, in my opinion.

Finally, finished SOMA. What a freaking scary game and it's also my first horror game that I've actually completed. The game felt very high quality and was also decently long (took about 10 hours to finish). Highly recommend buying it now if you're in Europe, as it's on sale for roughly 4 euros (if you're a PS+ member). Amazing horror game.

I finished Drakengard 3 which is easier said than done thanks to the most difficult final boss ever put in a video game

I've just beat Halo 5 on Legendary Solo. Took some doing and a horrendous difficulty spike on the penultimate level nearly made me abandon it completely.

@Kidfried: Couldn't agree more, I know not everyone has fallen for Unravel like me but I thought it was good fun the no deaths run was annoying for 1 section but on the whole not too bad.

I've just finished Ori & The Blind Forest and it's up there with the best games I've played!!!

@mrobinson91 Ori is a fantastic game. The Ginso Tree section caused me quite a bit of stress and frustration the first time but somehow on the Definitive Edition I managed to do that first time!

@crippyd: Man I want to play Ori so bad. Kinda sucks they cancelled the 360 version. When I get an Xbox One that will probably be one of my first purchases.

@Tasuki I think it's time you joined the Xbox One fold 😉 I think Ori will be quite cheap now, probably about $10-15.

@crippyd: Lol yeah I am hoping to get one once the slim comes out. I am sure I will be able to find a used fat model Xbox One pretty cheap. I just have other expenses to take care of first.

So, having missed the whole of the PS3 scenne, was on a 360 before, I've decided to try Beyond: Two Souls.

I have to say, I was amazed by it. The story telling was incredible, and the command prompts were really well built into the game. I am glad I gave it a chance, it cmpletely blew my mind.

Also finished with Uncharted, beautiful game, the story telling got back to where it always should've been, even if I was always expecting it to go back to silly paranormal stuff, or to end up being a re-hash of the same old stuff. it wasn't, and to me it is the best game of the bunch, humanised the characters, gave them a sort of depth, which the past games failed to do.

Having a go at Shadow of Mordor GOTY, I really like it but I don't get why it got so many awards, it's the kind of game you pick up when you want to roam around killing Uruks, screwing up with their ranks, Nemesis system is such a great idea for that, loved the whole revelation of who the elf spectre really is, they tied in the lore of LotR really well with this one. Not finished yet but looking real good.

You and what army?

Finished another three games. First one was Counterspy. Got it on PS+ way back when and I have to say, it's actually a pretty fun and unique 2D/TPS stealth game with procedurally generated levels. Story mode was short but sweet with a whole lot of replay-value.

The second one was Fat Princess. Played through the majority of the story back in 2012 when I got my PS3 but I never finished it until now. The last level was really tough, spent one hour trying to figure it out yesterday but couldn't. Had to look up some strategies for it and after 15 minutes, I finally beat it. Not my type of game to be honest, still somewhat fun.

Third one was Sonic 2 on the Mega Drive (Genesis). Very fun game up until the later levels where the difficulty spikes through the roof. I'm REALLY glad that I played through this game on the compilation for PS3 that has save states, otherwise I probably wouldn't have the patience to deal with those levels. Even though those levels kinda ruined it for me, it was still a great game (love the boss battle music!).

Metroid Prime: Blast Ball (3DS)

Nintendo released the Blast Ball portion of MP:FF completely free (I guess as a way of trying to win over those disappointed by the game's announcement), and it's well worth the download.

In terms of solo play modes, you have practice, quick match, and challenge (a series of 5 matches escalating in difficulty). It also holds a demo for the main portion of FF, and a couple of the training exercises within (target practice, and a segmet where you fight waves of holographic space pirates) record your high scores, which are shared on online leaderboards.

In terms of multiplayer modes, you have local play & online play (though the online portion will be limited to those who buy the full game, sometime after it's release).

Anyhow, I finally beat the challenge mode after having the game for a week, so I'm counting it beat. I still have some achievements left to unlock (which take the form of new paint jobs for your mech, which is actually pretty cool), so I'll probably still fire it up from time to time for some quick matches.

@RR529: Sorry for going off topic but how do you unlock the Training Mode with the FF demo?

@KratosMD, I think it unlocked for me after I scored my first goal (may have been winning my first game, though).

Just beat Hitman GO: Definitive Edition and it took me less than four hours. The premise of the game is great, but I didn't find the gameplay deep enough and the game is lacking quite a bit in the content department too. Hitman GO is currently discounted for a reasonable price, but I wouldn't recommend anyone to buy it for the full 8 bucks (**).
