@bluedex Yeah I loved the interactive "scene" with Aphrodite. πŸ˜‰ Cheers, sir!

@TheBrandedSwordsman so.. after I finished GOWiii, I cleaned up a few unfinished baddies and side missions in Marvels Spider-man, I'm done now at 98% - no pigeon chasing for me!
Then...played the TLOU DLC Left Behind, my first DLC ever! I'd forgotten how atmospheric that game is. Now I'm a few hours into the Witcher. It's only my 2nd ever RPG but I think I'm getting the hang of it, seems great. I'm trying to figure out the best way to defeat a Griffin for the current quest. Was a bit intimidated by all the menus and crafting and detail and so on.. but I'll take it slow and get the hang of it I'm sure.

@bluedex Yeah I think in The Witcher 3 there is some hand-holding for that early quest, so it shouldn't be too hard to craft the right potion to lure the griffin! I love it as an RPG, just so many options provided for you, different ways you can go and different things you can do to complete the story! Have fun!

Also with regard to GoWIII I had a great amont of fun taking on Cronos and the other gods within that game but preferred GoWII and the reboot on the whole, for that Cory Barlog magic!

I have 99% of Marvels Spiderman Remastered done including the 3 DLC, the only thing I can't get done is finally catch Screwball!

@TheBrandedSwordsman The first time I took on the Griffin I got my ass truly kicked numerous times. I got so fed up I went off and did the noonwraith quest, that's when I eventually copped to using combinations of signs and weapons in combat, and restoring health with food..and being patient!
Went back and had more success with the Griffin. The consumption of a lot of wine prior to the first attempt probably didn't help....

@bluedex Was that the consumption of a lot of wine in real life...or in the game? 🀣

@TheBrandedSwordsman Seriously though, RPGs are just a different mindset, it's great but you have to play them a totally different way to other games... Which is the whole idea I guess!
Sorry about my amateur hour comments but I'm really a noob at this.

@bluedex You will find that as you go along and complete quests you will be able to level up, making Geralt a more adept fighter or magic user, however you see fit, channeling your xp points however you wish to.

Latest purchase for me is The First Tree, for $2. And i gotta say, that was the right price. (At most)

The control is terrible and gameplay is extremely uninteresting and tedious. Feels like an amateur school project of someone just learning to make games. The nararration so far kinda matches the gameplay. This game is definitely no What Remains of Edith Finch. You'd easily find a better personal story narration on YouTube, for free.

I'll give it a little more time to see if the story improves. This would be a good Dreams project but as a commercial release, just... what.

Latest ps4 purchase was Crossing Souls for around 3 quid from indie sale for my ever expanding backlog. Also quite tempted to snap up Minit and Hyper Light Drifter before the sale disappears

I also took advantage of the big indies sale also grabbed one of those indie collection packages that had Dear Esther in it. I got a couple others thrown in that I’ll likely never play (Hue, which I already had access to through PS Plus, and The Flame in the Flood) but the collection at $1.50 was cheaper than the game had ever been by itself, according to psprices.com. At that price, it’s basically free, and I have always intended to play Dear Esther because I like a good walking sim to chill out with from time to time.

@Th3solution
I know right, I can't remember a time when I could get so many games for so little expense since the days when they gave out stuff free with magazines (nostalgia for the oldies on here)! As to your purchase I recall finding Hue a pleasant diversion when it was ps+ freebie, puzzle platform with an interesting mechanic. Also recently picked up Flame in the Flood mainly because I liked the art style but haven't got round to it yet. Dear Esther is the only one of the three I wouldn't be interested in, walking Sims just not what I'm in to.

@Sorteddan if you do ever get around to The Flame in the Flood, drop some impressions because I’m curious since I now own it. When I looked into it I was actually intrigued by the art style and aesthetic. I’m not much for the survival games and didn’t get along with Don’t Starve, but FitF looks like it does a few things differently.

And I can see how walking sims might not be for everyone, and I certainly have to spread them out between more gameplay intensive games. But when done right I enjoy a good virtual hike through a make-believe world.

Just bought myself a copy of Deadpool, which is semi hard to get since Activision's license to make games with Marvel characters expired in late 2017!

I know reviews for it aren't brilliant (and I doubt there's a PS5 patch coming) but I love Deadpool and I'm sure I will enjoy it!

@Pditty1980 I seem to remember it having the easiest trophy of all time (being Deadpool, this is of course satirical).

@Pditty1980 Congratulations on finding a decent copy of Deadpool out there! I've had similar difficulties tracking down copies of Activision's old Spidey games recently. Whilst I'm not hugely familiar with the Deadpool character, I've laughed at what I've seen of his game, so I hope you enjoy!
