Still playing Life is Strange, the whole reversing time concept works brilliantly...

LEGO Star Wars II. Started my file 8 years ago but never went back to it, since it was part of a large collection of games I had and other games interested me more. However, went back to it today and completed Episode IV.

Obviously it's a LEGO game so that actually isn't that hard but it'll probably keep me going for a bit until Splatoon 2 is out, which will probably be my next big game purchase.

EDIT: Gaming circumstances have changed and I'm now borrowing a PS3. As a result I am currently alternating between Crash Team Racing and Soul Calibur IV.

Completed and plat Horizon Zero Dawn yesterday, absolutely brilliant game. The combat was amazing and really fast paced and the world was beautiful, it's basically everything a Ubisoft open world game isn't. The ending pretty much teased a sequel, can't wait.

Alternating between games a bit but mainly Crash Team Racing where I've just reached the third hub world. Also got every CTR token from the first two hub worlds.

Not been playing anything recently, been putting any free time I've had into trying to cram Game of Thrones in before season 7 starts, feels like I've left it a little late this year though! Next game I'll try and play is Fire Emblem Fates, got a week away in July so I'll definitely be trying to get into some more. Not sure I'll play through all 3 versions though, still very new to the series so I'll probably play Birthright and Revelations, not sure about Conquest but it depends how I get on.

Still not advanced in Metroid Prime Echoes either, still I'll have plenty of time to finish Echoes and start and finish Corruption before I get my Switch in August, probably in time for Mario+Rabbids releasing.

The ending to chapter 3 really hit me and yes, I also struggled with which decision to make for chapter 5. In the end I sacrificed Chloe and felt guilty right after. So I played it through again for the other ending to see what happens. Kinda wish I did that now.

Been playing through Crash 1 of the N sane Trilogy and I must admit it's pretty hard, while I still think Donkey Kong is still harder it still offers a hard but fair difficulty. My only fault atm is the loading times are a bit ridiculous.


Also gone back Disgaea 5 on my Switch.

You realise that leaves a thumbnail with the title, right?

Beaten Crash Team Racing. Going back to get all the CTR Tokens and Relics of which I've gotten most of.

Learned about a massive shortcut in Oxide Station which I practised a bit, shaves 10 seconds off lap time and gives you a massive lead if you execute it first time successfully on all three laps. So typically I was only any good at it about half the time I tried it but eventually managed to beat N. Tropy's Ghost time by about 20 seconds using it.

Ah, CTR - aka the best kart racer. I should really get to looking for my misplaced disc and taking it for a spin again. Those were some real fun times - SP and MP; racing, and battle modes.

With regards to myself, I've recently re-ignited my Gigantic addiction. When Overwatch's free weekend expired, Gigantic nicely filled the void until I bought OW during the winter sale - which I then proceeded to solely play. Gigantic's a lot of fun, and I've enjoyed playing and learning all the highly varied characters I've tried so far - so much so that I've been thinking about just buying the Founder's Pack.
Ultimately, I tend to gravitate towards the heroes that help the team with their support/utility, and - in comparison to OW - These heroes are a lot more fun to play in Gigantic. When dived on by offensive heroes they have a means of escape, the capability to fight back and win, or simply endure until back-up arrives. They offer allies sustain, help cripple and control the enemy, whilst also dishing out decent to really effective DPS; and just feel more satisfying to play.

The concept of fragging enemies - and their summoned creatures - to gather power for your Guardian and have it fly across the map, pinning down the enemy team's so that you can wound it, is also a lot of fun. The literal power struggle can be intense: gaining control of the map, defending your guardian from a wound, breaching an enemy's desperate attempts to stop you from wounding theirs, stopping them from killing a creature, chasing down that one opponent to gather the last bit of power you need; etc, etc. A lot of good times.

Complete Crash 1 and Crash 2, not starting Crash 3.
Crash one is fun but it's a bit too hard and there isn't much variety in the levels but the second one is fantastic bar the jetpack stages.

Just a small spin! Take it you're going to be getting F1 2017 D.J? I'm just waiting/hoping the BGP001 gets included as one of the classic cars, if it does then I'll pre-order straight away! Sorely tempted to get myself a copy anyway mind, keep telling myself to wait for the reviews.

Anyway I'm back to playing Fire Emblem Fates, currently Birthright and after 6:30 into the game its kind of ok? The one thing I'm not really enjoying that much is the amount of units that get thrown into your party so relatively quickly, meaning either you stick with the same people or mix it up and have a slightly underlevelled team (or you can grind levels, but grinding really isn't my idea of fun, hence why I'm playing on the easiest difficulty with phoenix mode on). 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?

Yep, will hopefully be getting F1 2017, though it does come out pretty close to the release of Cities Skylines so i may not be able to get it on day 1.

To be fair its coming out close to when I'll be getting my Switch so I probably won't get it on launch day either, unless as I said previously they include the Brawn Gp car then its an instant buy as from all the F1 cars I've seen in my time of watching F1 that has been my favourite.

Been playing a load of Tekken 7 online and Plat the game, changed my main from Shaheen to Kasumi just a shame the online is still not that perfect.

Downloaded Paladins on my PS4 and it's pretty much a f2p Overwatch, it's good but it just makes me want to play Overwatch.
