I am going to hunt down the sick bedfordshire clanger who designed the bridge levels in Crash 1 and string them up by their goddamn genitals.

Got 100% on Adventure mode in Crash Team Racing and unlocked all the battle arenas. Only N. Trophy and Penta Penguin left to unlock. I am trying to avoid using cheat codes whenever possible but it looks like with Penta that will be impossible (I hear he's broken in the PAL version anyway).

Moved on to playing Soul Calibur IV. Picked it up for about £5 and while the single player modes are lacking and The Apprentice in Arcade mode is way too hard I'm having fun with it and trying out all the characters that were added since II. Eventually plan to give Tower of Lost Souls a go but with limited gametime now I might just focus on knocking out a character's story mode every day. Also the Character Creation has been fun to mess around in a bit.

Starting to feel the first option slightly more though, just pick a few units who I like and stick with them, I take it I should definitely level up a units class once they hit level 20 though? Unless their class can't be improved. Suppose sticking with the same units for most of the game wouldn't be an issue in beating levels etc?
Yes, definitely promote at level 20 otherwise they can't level up any further.
As a heads up for promotions though, you can promote a character to 2nd tier classes anywhere after level 10 but it's best to wait until they're level 20 to avoid missing out on stat gains. Basically level 1 promoted class = level 21 overall, so if you promote a level 10 unit they skip 10 levels and miss out on the stat gains they'd get from levelling normally. Then when they get to promoted level 20 (level 40 overall) that's that (unlike Awakening where you could use a seal to loop them back to level 1).
Slight exception is Azura, her Singer class doesn't have a promoted equivalent so it just goes all the way to 40, basically the same deal though in that if you're switching her class make sure you don't switch her to a promoted class till she's past level 20.

As for sticking with the same units, yeah you'll be fine as long as you've got a decent variety of classes/weapon types present. Although on Easy Phoenix I'd be surprised if you couldn't just use Takumi as a one man army for the entire game.

Yeah I've got a nice mix of units currently, just got Takumi, will probably put Ryoma (lead Samurai guy for Hoshido, not sure if I've spelt his name right) on my team when I get him and call it a day as far as my team is concerned.

Just walk on the rope that's what I did.

Completed Crash Warped yesterday and I still have plenty to unlock and collect. I thought the game was good but dam those Coco jetski and Crash motorbike levels.

The Master Trials in BotW, unsurprisingly.

Also been playing Kirby Triple Deluxe on the side as of late and 100% demolished it - kinda like his hypernova ability - and it's encouraged me to pick up Planet Robobot sooner rather than later.

Cleared Nightmare and Zasalamel's stories in Soul Calibur IV. Zasalamel's ending is weird...

Also beat Arcade mode with Cervantes (managed to refamiliarise myself with this character having used him in SCII) and made all the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in character creation. Apparently some games let you take screenshots on PS3 but I don't think SCIV is one of them so the following spoilered screenshot is the best I could get of the turtles.

Second character is getting to the point that lower tier maps are a bit of a joke.

Going through the Telltale Game of Thrones game as it's an easy platinum and so far I'm half way through the second episode and I can tell it's the weakest TT game I've played so far. It may be because I haven't seen much of the tv series, but dam the Telltale engine really needs an update.

I have not player that one but I recently played and completed The Walking Dead 3 and although it was not as good as 1 & 2 I really enjoyed it, I just wish it had been longer

Played Splatoon 2's Splatfest that was on this weekend. Been ages since I've played the first one and didn't play in the Global Testfire back in March so this was my first time playing the game. I keep getting caught out by pressing the map button instead of the jump button which has made things a bit awkward and although there were a few Cake vs. Cake matches, eventually it was proper Cake vs. Ice Cream matchups and the results were mixed, depending on the overall teams really.

Still, should be getting it when it comes out this week.

Gone back to Yakuza Zero to complete some more of the story only to realise I wasted 2 hours playing mini games.

Still playing Birthright, now I'm back home I'll be able to crack on with Metroid Prime Echoes a bit more as well. Currently on to chapter 16 of Birthright, upgraded a couple of people now they've hit level 20. Still think it's an alright game, don't see me playing any further entries in the series (past Revelations and maybe Conquest, although I think I'll be burned out once I've played Revealtions after Birthright).

Got a few more stories done in Soul Calibur IV, mainly with some of the characters that were introduced in this game but also got Raphael, Yoshimitsu and Voldo's stories done as well. Racking up a ton of gold now and not having spent it on much, will probably buy everything at a later date though I may take a break from the game once I get Splatoon 2 this week.

Completed Telltale Game of Thrones and overall it wasn't that bad, not the best TT game out there but as someone who hasn't seen GoT it's made me want to see it.

Finally trying Kingdom Hearts 2 now and while I'm still playing as Roxas the combat feels much better than KH1, look forward to playing more.

Finished all the Story modes in Soul Calibur IV bar four of the bonus characters.

Got Splatoon 2 today so been playing online a lot naturally to try and level up quite a bit in order to get some matches, but I did have quite a few games, albeit the team I was on lost more than it won.

I also ended up in the same match as Bee Doof. We did splat each other a few times during the game, although his team dominated that match.

Image

Been trying one of the new weapons out and I think I like it. On the other hand it seems some people are higher than Level 10 already....
