Whether you celebrate Easter or not, we sincerely hope you're enjoying the brighter spring weather, and have stockpiled some chocolate for this long weekend. And while you're eating that chocolate, don't forget to cram in some video games. Here's what we're playing!
Along with a game for review, I’ll be chipping away at Horizon Forbidden West this long weekend.
Cannon Dancer is genuinely my most anticipated release of 2023, although I've already waited 27 years to spin kick around Kouichi Yotsui's design, so I'll take five more days in my stride. In the meantime, I'll play Breakers Collection to stick with last weekend's Neo Geo theme.
I’ll finally wrap up Resident Evil 4 before circling back to Dead Space. I also picked up haunted fishing game Dredge, so I’d like to try that out too, time permitting!
I’m still making my way through Octopath Traveler II, which continues to be a delight.
I waited months for Game Freak to fix Pokémon Scarlet, but it's not going to happen, so I've decided to wrap it up at 12fps like the developer clearly intended.
I just got a new PC and so I'm breaking it in with Death Stranding: Directors Cut as well as a bit of Cult of the Lamb.
With the long Easter weekend ahead of us there should be plenty of time for me to finally start Moss on PSVR2. I may have purchased it back at launch but I keep putting it off playing it. Let’s hope I don’t end up back on Battlefield 2042 instead.
In between pretending I'm too old to eat Easter eggs and then eating Easter eggs, I'll be keeping tabs on Meet Your Maker, checking out community levels to see what the level editor can really do. Aside from that, I have so many other games I want to play; Tchia, Rollerdrome, and Sifu are all waiting in the wings.
It's another week where literally everyone on our team is playing something different, which again speaks to the sheer volume of releases available right now. What are you playing this weekend? Keep it varied in the comments section below.
This weekend I will play on the Switch and my DS
Those 3 games (and collection) are some of my favorite games to go back to (except Dark Souls 1 as I beat it only once).
I made 3 polymer clay sculptures, associated with each one
In Castlevania Portrait of Ruin I will continue my progress towards 100% in everything!
In Dark Souls I will start a new character with a mage build!
And I will revive some memories with TMNT III The Manhattan Project
Happy gaming everyone!
DS version of Final Fantasy IV and Evil Dead The Game with some friends.
We're getting pumped for Evil Dead Rise in a few weeks.
I'm in a bizarre post "RE4" pre "Zelda:TotK" hinterland. I bought "Far Cry 5" for peanuts during the week to try on the new 60FPS patch but if that doesn't stick then I've got "Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis" on the Wii and a mountain of Cadbury mini eggs to see me through the Bank Holiday.
Resident Evil 4 remake. Great game overall, but not perfect. I'm just over halfway through and having fun for the most part.
But wow is this game difficult at times. I never seem to be able to build up a consistent supply of ammo and I'm not a fan of the breakable knife. Maybe I'm just bad, but it feels much tougher on standard difficulty than RE2/3 remakes and the original RE4.
Switch - Gonna try more No Man's Sky and Persona 5 Royal today! Heard great things about both of them.
3DS - Might start Pokemon HeartGold today! Most likely gonna pick Cyndaquil.
PS5 - GTA Online with friends later tonight, and might start Cyberpunk 2077.
PC - Not much on PC this week, though might continue High on Life that I started weeks ago lol.
Have a good weekend everyone!
Im off round to my mates for a retro gaming sesh then Mercenaries when im back home.
I played Wii games in the morning. 🙂
2. Open Season
Then, I played PS3 games in the afternoon.
3. Surf's Up
4. The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon
A rare Sunday off for me tomorrow, so I shall be playing some co-op games with my brother. Diablo II: Resurrected and Borderlands 3 are on the cards.
I’ll be getting slaughtered in Indie darlings battlefield 2042 and resident evil 4 remake all weekend.
Family gathering for the weekend and any free time I have will be spent reading Final Empire. I did play a bit of Hotline Miami and tried out Bedman? Last night whilst downloading HFW and a few other games in preparation for Burning Shores and some future games to play!
Played a lot of GoT and yeah superb combat and story, nice game overall but there's something more satisfying with AC Valhalla. I like to compare the 2 cause they came out the same year and a bit similar, of course we know GoT did the borrowing of ideas. I feel the internet just picks a narrative runs with it misleading the average person like "GoT is more AC than AC itself" like wth?! GoT is a superb Samurai game but nothing AC about it, guy doesn't even like dishonorable assassinations. I think what makes Valhalla more satisfying is the immersion - you have a settlement, bed, stable etc and enemies aren't spawning everywhere. Why do mongols have to spawn every inch on your way anywhere in GoT, just why?!
Aaannd I found me some new secrets in RDR2, after all these years I try to avoid spoilers on these hidden things, what a game! Also, probably some ER and BB.
I’m finishing Yakuza 3 Remastered probably tonight which by far has the worst combat of the 5 games I’ve played (0, 7, 1, 2, 3 is my play order). Too many stuns & almost instantaneous blocking kill the flow of combat. I heard Yakuza 4 & 5 are great so I’m excited to get into it. I’m trying to get through the series before LAD 8 and 6.5 (I guess you’d number it that) come out.
I've finally completed Hogwarts Legacy and it's definitely up there as one of my favourite games and my GOTY so far. So on PS5 i will now concentrate on Fairy Fencer F and the Ghost of Tsushima DLC
On switch I've started Zelda Skyward Sword HD to give me my Zelda fix until the 12th may. I will also be playing some Metroid Prime Remastered, just completed the phazon mines and it's been great so far, hopefully 2 and 3 gets the same treatment.
I'm still waiting for my Backbone one to be delivered, if it comes today I will be playing Atomic Heart and Re-Core on gamepass.
Can't stop... playing... Disney Dreamlight Valley... Send... help...
Also, I platinumed Tchia a few days ago. I wish there was more to do because it's nice just being in that world. Also playing (well, reading) Paranormasight on the Switch, which is an excellent horror VN with great artwork and atmosphere.
Caught a fever yesterday, so only will be aiming to complete Tchia to chill and not put too much stress on my body.
Well, after a frustrating week where I couldn't find a game that was calling to me, I pulled the trigger on 𝐎𝐜𝐭𝐨𝐩𝐚𝐭𝐡 𝐓𝐫𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐫 𝟐.
It's been fun so far, I've just gathered all 8 of my party after about 20 hours.
I'm a bit disappointed that they didn't fix the disjointed way that members join your party in the sequel. It's all a bit lackadaisical. Just rock up to the person, they say something along the lines of " hey mind if I tag along " without much preamble and bingo, new member. It ought to be more organic and narrated.
Other than that though it's solid. Looks gorgeous too.
Enjoy your, hopefully long, Easter weekend,don't OD on chocolate and have fun with whatever your playing!
I bought the upgrade for creed on vr 2 also bought saint and sinners so will give those two a go. Done a few fights in creed its really good although was knackerd after lol. Still need to finish hogwarts not too far off now but i kinda fell off it got a bit boring but should just finish it.
Actually fired up Batman Arkham Knight this weekend as I wanted to see if it still held up.
The graphics, wow. I had to Google to see if it received a PS5 patch but it hasn't, they are stunning for a game that's 8 years old or whatever. Still a great game as well.
Witcher 3, Witcher 3 and the Witcher 3. I think I had 85 hours in this playthrough last week and now I have 115 and I can't claw myself away from this game. My longer playthrough is sheerly to the fact that I want to completely 100% this game, meaning every quest I can possibly find and clear every single question mark on the map.
I’m in a gaming rut 🙁 whatever game I put on, within 10 mins I just quit and try something else. Can’t get into anything right now. Hope I snap out of it soon.
Bloodborne, finally. I had pushed it, hoping against hope for a remaster or at least a 60fps update. And it plays just fine and yeah, it's amazing… but that just reinforces the sense it really does deserve better. Anyway, it's good.
Creed championship edition, and maybe a bit of ys 8 when my arms get tired and / or my lungs give out.
I grabbed Ace Combat 7 in the sale. I've been having a lot of fun with that. Will probably finish with it before lunch.
Then I'll jump back to RE4. That's my main focus now that I've finished Hogwarts finally.
For the record, I don't enjoy having a backlog but this is where I am right now:
I ask again - Who has the time?
Edit: Just beat RE 4.
Would love to do a second run but I need to get through this list.
Elden Ring and Horizon expansions are on the way, plus a new Jedi game, Tears of the Kingdom, Final Fantasy XVI...
Just finished Doki Doki Literature Club and oooooooooh boy what a journey!
Ill probably be giving it another play through this weekend 😁
I picked up Cloudpunk in the sale and I’m really enjoying my time being a space delivery driver. Apart from that, I might finally get around to trying to Platinum Dragons Dogma.
More RE4 for me, I'm on chapter 13 now so not long left, brilliant game, gets stressful managing resources with so many enemies but it is great fun and make you think a bit harder about how to go about it. Plus the cache cases are a game in themselves!
Hopefully get that finished off then try out a bit of Mercenaries with a bit of Dredge in between.
Happy gaming folks
Death Stranding replay, looks gorgeous on PS5, and rewatching High Score on Netflix (and reading The Ultimate History of Video Games)
@Nightcrawler71 When I'm like that I find doing something non-gaming related helps. Like, you might end up watching Vikings and then really being in the mood for AC Valhalla or whatever. Or even a vague thing like you watch a martial arts movie and that puts you in the mood for a fighting game.
Bought unlimited rocket launcher at end of playthrough two of Re4 so time for my revenge lol, have a great weekend everybody.
I'll be trying to progress on the original Final Fantasy VII which I never got around to finish it as a kid.
Playing Hogwarts Legacy at the moment trying to get my last trophy. And it's bugged. Need to kill one more infamous foe. Open world map says 18/18 and I have all of them in my journel but the challenge says 11/12. Retraced every mission that has one and even done the bonus foes and yet mine won't unlock. Guess I'm just going to have to wait for a patch. Really sucks when we put so much time into a game and this happens.
@ZoSo Does it actually have more of a story than the last one? I played it for a few dozen hours, and while I initially really loved it and still enjoyed it after a while, I was just quite bored because there was no real narrative development. I asked about this online at the time and the general consensus was that they basically forgot the story and try to wadge it all in after the game is over in a text summary. Something like that.
And also the characters having weak, unchanging personalities. You do a lot of things that, say, the cleric girl would be against but she doesn't say anything. The characters have no agency or even opinions unless it's their turn to have a scene. Have they improved on the characters just feeling like very simple archetypes that don't interact or express much?
Im playing the excellent valfaris.this indie game reminds me of old school contra.the gameplay is really good and the pixel graphics is amazing and the boss fights is outstanding.the story is cool.the weapons and soundtracks is excellent.im playing tails of iron.this indie game is wonderful.the art style is beautiful.the gameplay is really good.my kind of gameplay.the boss fights is amazing.geralt voice actor from the witcher is doing the narrative.his voice makes tail of iron even more awsome.tail of iron is a instant classic with me.the souls like combat is welcome with me.im playing the legendary bioshock infinite from bioshock the collection.one of the best games ever made.bioshock infinite still looks amazing.booker dewitt and Elizabeth makes a good team.i love the powers and the gunplay in bioshock infinite.the boss fights is excellent.the story is one of the best in video games history.and the instant classic ni no kuni wrath of the white witch remastered.ni no kuni wrath of the white witch remastered is one of the best games ever made.that art style.the graphics in ni no kuni wrath of the white witch remastered is easily top 4 graphics i ever play.the gameplay is excellent.the story is wonderful.oliver is one of the best protagonist ever.and the boss fights is amazing.its the last weekend before the nba playoffs.only 1 game left.i will be watching my boston Celtics💚🖤 play 1 more time before the nba playoffs 🏀.i will be watching legendary sitcoms 📺 tv comedy in Sanford and son.good times.the Jeffersons.saved by the bell.and the wayans brothers.word life.word to god.word is bond.word to your mother.word up son
@Nightcrawler71 I've barely gamed at all this year. Can't settle on a game and switch off Like yourself after 5-10 minutes. I've found I'm enjoying reading more this year than any other hobby. Hopefully I'll be in the mood for Burning Shores later this month though.
I finally, after 205hrs, wrapped up everything story related in Assassin's Creed Valhalla. I really enjoyed my time with Eivor but it felt like it dragged towards the end a bit unlike Odyssey and Kassandra which remained an absolute joy until my final act of booting Chickaros off of a cliff... I'm ready for whatever MIrage ends up being though I hope they don't squander the possibilites presented by Basim.
Currently I'm playing Ghostwire Tokyo on PS+ and finding it to be weird in both good and bad ways, it's certainly scratching the magpie in my soul.
Working my way towards the Hogwarts platinum trophy and still having tons of fun with it. Just bought Sonic Frontiers as an Easter sale in a local store, so I'll take that one for a spin as well this weekend.
Finally got the Platinum trophy on Octopath Traveler 2 - fantastic game, better than the first in almost every way! Time to move on to The Last of Us Part 1 on PS5, finally got it at a big discount in an Easter sale as I refuse to pay full price for it.
@GorosBat that's the time it is taking you to clear every ? and do every side quest? I guarantee I'll have logged more hours than you with having only cleared some of the ? And some of the side quests 😁 I don't think I could ever 100% this beautiful game as it takes me so long the way I play open worlds lol.
I think I'm just done with the battle of Kaer Morhen section my last/current playthrough that I'm having a little break from (I'd forgotten how quickly it boots you through the story and levels you up so much at that point before you can get back to the open world so I needed time off after that haha)
It's been a few months and I'm still repeating lesser known NPC catchphrases out of nowhere too 😬 I think the most frequent is the drunk song "I'm a right and randy dandyyyyy... The ladies find me handyyyy!"
I got to get myself back to Novigrad, I think 😁😁😁
Finished my first play through of steelrising and i started ng+ which is even better seeing as things are different and other things have been introduced that i didnt think were there. I thought i'd seen everything but this game just keeps on giving..time for 18 holes at the golf course before the masters resumes play..have a great easter break everybody 👍
Resident Evil 4
Outside of the frustrating early portion of the game that I forgot about (I didn't play the demo), it's been a good experience so far. I never played the original.
@Ravix I'm still in Skellige clearing all the dive points but I'm hurrying along the main story so I can get to Khaer mohren so I can finally get the wolf set which I'm basing my build around. I'd say I've cleared about half of Skellige and 85% of the Velen/Novigrad map leaving the North East of Novigrad for the Hearts of Stone DLC. I've probably spent 5+ hours solely theory crafting my build heading into the end game and I still spend time playing gwent even though I have the full base collection already and won the tourney at the pasiflora. I'm going to guess by the time I fully complete the game with all DLC my clock will have easily ticked over 200-250 hours total. Once you know how to build Geralt properly the game becomes laughably easy, even on Death March, I even intend to brew every single alchemy recipe. I have all Oils, potions and have about 5 decoctions left except the Succubus concoction which will be impossible to obtain because I spared it in this playthrough. Not many games truly suck me into their experience like this one so 100%ing it beyond the platinum in both ps4 and ps5 versions is my ultimate respect towards the game. There's just something about the Witcher 3 and games like Mass Effect that make me want to do literally everything possible!
World of Final Fantasy (PC/Steam Deck). Moss (PSVR 2) Crash 4 (PC/Steam Deck) God of War (PS5) and Pokèmon Snap 64 for Nintendo Switch Online.
Dragon Quest XI S, Deliver Us The Moon, maybe The Witcher 3... This is Star Wars Celebration weekend, so I will watch lots of it from home, love that convention. Soon lots of new games DLC to play, HFW Burning Shores, Star Wars Jedi Survivor, Ghostwire Tokyo... Great days!!
On PS5 my main focus this weekend will be Resident Evil 4. I'm only Chapter 8, haven't had a ton of free time but very much enjoying what I have been able to play. Also plan to mix in some Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror.
Over on the Switch I'm continuing my second playthrough of the awesome Metroid Prime Remastered and as I've gotten caught up in the hype for the Mario movie (which I'll be seeing today) I decided to play some of those games. The main ones being Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury.
Just got Tchia Platinum's. It's time to dip into sackboy and maybe Horizon: forbidden west for first time. They seem like a good primary and secondary game combination to play for a time.
Really... The value of PS Essential + Extra it's crazy.
This week(end) I finished my first playthrough of the Resident Evil 4 Remake (Xbox Series X). I may start a NG+ and unlock a few more achievements, but I doubt I’ll go for the 100% completion. That said, this will easily go down as one of my all time favorite games.
I have also started Signalis (Xbox Series X). What a gem of a game. I didn’t know if it would hold my attention considering I just beat an all time classic - but this game is punching way above its weight. I’m looking forward to diving deeper into the game.
Other than that, I might take a break from gaming this weekend and do some reading. I’ve been getting into graphic novels as of late - even if my wife thinks I’m a kid, she still supports my interests - and started with Batman Year One. So far, it’s outstanding.
I’m going to read TMNT: The Last Ronin next. I’ve heard this is an incredible story, and with the announcement of a AAA game set in this particular universe, my interest is piqued.
If anyone has any other suggestions for graphic novels to read for beginners (I’m just now starting), feel free to message me. I have Daredevil: Born Again and Infinity Gauntlet on my list to read soon, but I’m welcome to all kinds even if it isn’t superhero related.
I'm replaying HFW to get ready for the Burning Shores DLC whichni preordered last night.
Was doing some tech stuff with the Quest 2 and got airlink working decent, so have taken a break from PSVR2 and diving into the PCVR backlog:
An early Rift exclusive that i never tried. It is badass, yes the teleport only movement is beyond dated, but otherwise this is a fantastic pulpy horror game with an A list budget and voice cast. Sortve like an old school ep of Twlight Zone with an R rating. I burned through a third of the game last night and am enjoying, the puzzles, the chills and the plot twists.
Man...this is how you do a VR climbing sim! No doubt Horizon CoM took inspiration, but after playing this, i really wished they wouldve copied it closer even, it would improved it. Crytek has given their setpieces consequence and suspense missing in the other game (although its rivalled in visual spectacle). Ill burn through this one and check out the sequel straight after.
PC Game Pass
Persona 5 Royal
Been neglecting this one this week, family and work have been demanding. Will try to reach the fourth palace this weekend and grind a little bit of those remaining Mementos requests.
As for games. I'm at an impass. I really need to get back to finishing Judgment. But Football Manager has been a very handy distraction from stress in the evenings lately. You can just zone out to that sh** and there's no story to have to keep up with
As far as the latest season in that stat sheet heavy, football fantasy roleplay game it definitely is too easy. After thinking my first championship season would be more like an actual season of football with ups and downs, and starting as if it was going to be, with a quick few wins and draws looking like they'd be soon replaced with more losses and mixed results, I somehow managed to win the league on the last day of the season finishing on 100 points beating Brighton's 99.
Luke Offord is now a £10m premier league Center Back, with league one level attributes, proving that attributes aren't everything, the championship was his best season, after rotating early it became clear he was playing above his level, and of those who were supposed to be better than him. Most of my success has been achieved with a 5/6 own/loan split for the first team, with even more loans in rotation, mainly because our wage budget was £1m per week less than Brighton!!!!! Which is insane. And so, I still barely own an actual squad. I'm slowly owning more though (a mix of questionable quality and young potential) and for this next premier League season coming up (how insane is three league titles in a row???) my center back choices are, Luke Offord (£10m rated??? But league one level) Sam McLellend (spent whole Championship season on loan in Scotland as I had two loan players I needed to use as they were more established) An Italian Regen that is more of a fast wingback, but he fits into my new tactics at CB, and John Souttar an injury prone player who played once a year for Rangers, but he was cheap in January and I own him, so... And yet I drew 0-0 with Fulham, 1-1 with Southampton, and face a Man UTD team next who have made a dodgy start to the season and I'm definitely going to attack them with my Gegenpress until I imagine my phenomenal CBs just can't keep up with the pace any more 😁
I thought the premier League loan rules (which I didn't know until it said, "you can't loan this player as you can only loan 2 domestic players at a time, and you currently have 7 haha, who all but two I had to let leave and not renew) were going to absolutely kill my team, but I scoured Europe, somehow loaned the Brazilian wonderkid from Madrid who scored 30+ for Brighton in the Championship (sorry Brighton, he's mine now😁) got in maybe 6 loans from Europe, and relaxed a little bit. Connor Gallagher signed for free (big wages, but TV alone gives me 1.5m per week, so I don't have to worry about his measly £50k out of my £400k wage budget) and overall I've managed to amass a squad that is second favourite for the drop (sorry Ipswich)
There definitely must be something in the game that favours clubs who get promoted once though, as Ipswich came up to the championship from league one with me, and now we're both in the Premier league. The game is insane 👀
Now my goal is to do what Blackpool did, but better, with my 11,000 total, upgraded capacity from 10,000, taking the absolute p*** of premier league away supporters, who probably can't come to see games here in greater numbers than maybe a medium bus full 😁😁😁
Can't wait to see my profit margins come relegation time though 💸🤑
@Sakisa sounds like a groovy weekend 😉
Not gonna be playing much thanks to watching The Masters! But if I do get time it will mostly be PGA2K23, a bit of Forbidden West, and...well... more golf with EA PGA!
@CWill97 4 & 5 are both accquaried taste. I loved 4, thought it did a great job at shaking up the formula with an appealing lean multinarrative. I hated 5, although it has its fans...but it just felt like a bloated tedious version of 4. Will be curious on your take...
@GorosBat yeah, I get it. I went in this time with the intention of doing every side quest, at least, but there is just so much, and I waste so much time just doing random stuff, and playing Gwent incredibly late into the night at one stage that I just know I won't be able to do everything I want to 😆 Death March is a piece of p**s, I agree. I'd stopped spending my skill points way before the battle of Kaer Morhen, and I'm not even creating an insane super build, and I gave up on Quen after realising I didn't need those upgrades. At first it's required, wolves and dogs in white Orchard and Velen, and wraiths can be a pain early, but after you level up a few times you're fine.
Sometimes I will still pop the decoction to increase HP for every enemy killed just to see how high the number can go 😁 but mostly it's just down an attack power or critical chance one, and walk around in serious cutscenes with my purple veiny face because why not haha
I outleveled wolven armour so I CBA with that, I pick up peices if I notice they are near by, but I think I was just aiming for the forgotten wolven set despite me never using Yrrden or caring about bonuses, I just need black armour to be happy and the New Moon set is locked behind HoS, I think 😁
@MightyDemon82 @Matroska thanks for your tips. Fortunately my gaming rut has only lasted about a week so far. I’ve lost count of how many games I’ve downloaded this week on either GamePass or PS+ premium, only to play for 10 mins then delete them again 😂 I do read anyway, but usually last thing at night before I got to bed. I’m hoping by the time Star Wars Jedi survivor comes out I will be over my rut, or that may actually be the game that ends the rut.
Skyrim and Spyro for me. Both certified classics!
Oh, and I might get a bit of Persona 5 Royal in as well.
Happy easter everyone!
Just earned the Platinum in WO LONG so I’m moving on to Resi 4 and will check out Meet Your Maker.
I’d also like to get back to Mafia so there’s that.
@Northern_munkey I’m glad to see Steelrising get some love. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with it and still need to go back for the DLC.
I started it on standard and thought nah let's go for assisted. I'd rather have fun than stress and I'm loving it. I'll maybe try standard for new game plus
Sold my series s due to recent events, back to business with RE4 Remake on PS5 (harder at times than i remember) and also staring at a big mini eggs easter egg in anticipation!
Gears of war 5 on Xbox.
Sack boy big adventure on PS5.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle on Switch.
PS5: Hogwarts Legacy while waiting for HFW DLC.
Switch: Fire Emblem DLC while waiting for TotK.
Series: Halo Infinite while waiting for Ghostwire Tokyo.
@Matroska I'm going to have to say no, at least as far as an overarching story goes.
The separate character stories are fairly strong, some being better than others so far.
I totally agree that having, say, Throné basically back stab an NPC or steal the toys from a child whilst the rest of the party make no comment is really immersion breaking.
It's a fun series, I really enjoyed the first one over on the xbox, but, in my opinion, it'll never be a 𝘨𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘵 series until they sort out the party mechanism properly.
Loaded up FM23, currently 3-2 up against Man UTD at Old Trafford. Posting this to jinx the result 😁😁😁 Endrick has 2, that's what a good wonder loan can give you 🤑
Survived the jinx, buuuut
About to be knocked out of the league cup by Portsmouth on penalties though 😂😂 same CB pairing as the UTD game (everyone else was unfit) very disappointed in them 😂 finally some football realism though 😁 us fancy Premier league teams just don't have the passion for the league cup
I am lost in my first play through of Elden Ring and LOVING IT!!!
New tattoo & continue my Season playthrough of Smackdown 2: Know Your Role as Road Dog and some time trials in Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions.
It’s been all Castlevania this week into the weekend. I finished Harmony of Dissonance twice, Dracula X, and I’m about to beat Circle of the Moon for the second time for the Advance Collection platinum trophy. I’ll probably start Symphony of the Night and maybe Bloodlines if I have time.
I’m running through a seasonal character for the first and last time ever in Diablo 3 UEE. It’s a pretty good time, and a good way to catch up on some podcasts I’ve been procrastinating on listening to. I also started up Nier Automata over this past week and put 2 or so hours into it.
I’ve also got Resi 4 Remake. And also Chernobylite. And Metroid Prime Remastered.
It’s gotten to the point that sometimes I’ll sit here and just wonder what I should play and don’t end up playing anything
I also recently booted Battlefield 2042 and tried to get into it…and quickly realized that my 40 year old reflexes are no match for the insanity going on in the FPS space these days. Gonna leave that genre to the lads I think
@DETfaninATL if you get stuck on any bosses and need someone to help you slap them, I’m your huckleberry…
I have a toon hanging out at Roundtable Hold in between NG and NG+ ready to rock
Having a blast playing the Resident Evil 4 Remake. May either play more of that, Splatoon 3 or make progress in Boneworks.
FFXIV Shadowbringers and the fabulously charming Immortals: Fenyx Rising.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake and WWE 2K23.
Finishing off the classic Hitman game Hitman Contracts, and this also seems like a good weekend to give Nier Replicant a try. Automata is one of my all time favourite games, so I'm curious to see how Replicant compares to it.
For the majority of the weekend i wont be playing anything. I will be sunning myself down the lake and hopefully catching myself some nice carp. Some evening VR may be in order tho.... if the sun doesn't kill me.
Haven’t had any dedicated gaming time since the RE4 Remake came out, so… as soon as the kids are napping…
Gonna be playing a assortment of games this weekend. Fire Emblem Engage’s Chapter 16 burned me hard last night so I’m gonna take a break and do either some Kirby’s Return to Dreamland or Bayonetta Origins tonight. Then maybe give Fire Emblem another go on Easter. Over on the PS5 more Resident Evil 4 and Dead Space progress tho I do wanna fit in time for the Wild Hearts trial they have running. And if Monday counts for the long weekend then I guess I’ll be getting into the groove of chipping away at Trails to Azure for a couple hours each day. Next week might feature two movies for me. Mario and Suzume. Also might go ahead and finish 4 of my winter anime this weekend and possibly start at least one of my spring animes. Those being The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten, Spy Classroom, High Card and TRIGUN STAMPEDE. And the spring one I’m possibly starting is the one and only Hells Paradise. Happy Easter and Good gaming to everyone.
Persona 5! Finally getting around to the end of the game
Untitled Goose Game and having a honking good time.
Been playing some Bowser's Fury on the Switch. It's a really excellently designed game and put me in mind of what Sonic Frontiers was trying to achieve with an 'open zone' approach to a 3D platformer, but I've found BF much more enjoyable. I'd really like to see Nintendo expand the game's concepts into a larger Mario game.
I've also started playing Deliver us the Moon over on PS4.
@Ravix Well you've already lasted longer than Mick McCarthy
Having just beaten Sonic Spinball 8-bit and Sonic 2 8-bit, it's time to start Sonic Triple Trouble.
As for playing normal games like a normal person, I am 2 trophies away from the Genshin Impact platinum, and I have never felt so far away as I do right now. I really need to work on my DPS.
I beat Titanfall 2 on Steam Deck and hopped (stupid pun) into, Elemental Masters, Days Gone, and The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile.
Devil In Me and enjoying it so far. One of my characters died very early on and I was kinda mad about it because my choice seemed like the ‘right’ one. But overall I’m enjoying the story and trying to keep everyone else alive. I love these games despite their flaws.
Other than that, Dreamlight Valley (the new update is brilliant) and Fortnite - I haven’t played for a few weeks so I had loads of quests to catch up on.
Trying to clear my backlog before Jedi Survivor arrives later this month.
I'm playing some old favourites on my Gamecube, Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour (hard game!), Luigi's Mansion, & Bust A Move All Stars.
Might have to blow my face off with some Tetris Effect at some point too, feeling the urge lol
mlb 23 the show! Love it!
@Dusk_Actual Sounds good and I will keep you in mind! I've played all the Soulsborne games so I know my way around 'em but I can always use some help too! Is your PSN ID: Dusk_Actual ?
@DETfaninATL that is indeed my psn, add me! I’ll probably be hitting you up for help rather than me helping you out!
Still on RE4 remake. Taking ages as can't really play when kids are in.
After recently finishing Kirby and the forgotten land I bought Kirby return to Dreamland deluxe. Just wish I'd realised how good Kirby games are years ago
@somnambulance got the same issue lol
I'm playing PowerWash Simulator, it's quite relaxing
@BlackMayge Fables, watchmen, the mask, kick ass, anything in the new 52 Scott snyder batman era, kingdom come, the walking dead (the first compendium is incredible, gets gradually worse through the 4 but still worth a read).
Just keep playing, some of those missing things are part of the main storyline.
@rusty82 I got through three chapters yesterday and it was outstanding! Got to Chapter 7, so I’m officially onto the second third of the game. They’ve improved on the original in ways that I didn’t expect.
@Agadoin Already completed everything the game has to offer. Every main mission, every side mission and even did all the collectibles. Just that one bug is keeping me from getting it. Quite a common problem too but some people have been lucky enough to find an enemy they defeated before respawn again and I haven't been lucky to find one
Oh. That’s annoying for you. Didn’t know it was quite a common bug.
I've been so glued to EA PGA Tour for the last couple of days I forgot to post that I'll be playing EA PGA Tour...
@Dusk_Actual Just sent you a friend request. I’m only LVL 60(ish) right now and have only beaten a half dozen bosses or so (you can take a look at my trophy profile to see about where I’m at), but my magic is strong. LOL 😉😂👍🏽💪🏽
Even though the backlog was 100% clear just in January, I'm already drowning in games. Almost done with Wild Arms 2 then I need to get Legend of Dragoon done before Horizon DLC and FF6 Pixel Remaster drop this month. Still have some VR2 games I didn't get to yet as well.
I haven't gamed in a few weeks now sadly. However I plan to start playing Horizon: Forbidden West tomorrow if I have any free time.
