What are you playing and what do you think of it?

I'm been working through the ace attorney games again these last few weeks, it's amazing how much you forget in the space of a few years, it completely shatters the criticism about these games having no replay value.
Currently playing Apollo Justice, I know people say this is one of the weaker ones but I think it's still pretty good, the music is certainly up there with the best the series has to offer. One think I do miss is the option to question people on characters and present profiles as evidence, I really liked that feature so it's a shame they took it away.

Anyway I'm just starting case 3 which if I remember correctly contains one of the most frustrating puzzles in the entire series.

Wait, people say Apollo is one of the weaker ones? I thought it was the best in the series (although, i haven't played AA5) myself.

Been doing a new game+ run on Atelier Escha & Logy to get the true ending and stuff. About halfway through that now and...although it's still very much fun and good, it's become so glaringly obvious how flawed it is in some respects.

Valhalla Knights (PSP on Vita), it's alright actually. It has that PSP game charm to it, even if the actual gameplay is pretty rough around the edges. Fun enough to play in short bursts on the bus.

Also still playing GTAO maybe once a week when I play online with a friend, so that continues to be fun. Don't want to know how many hours I have wasted doing nothing on it, but at least I've definitely got my money's worth!

Other than that, not much now, as Civ BE has just come out that will be my life. Although Freedom Wars on Vita is out on Wednesday so pretty hyped for that!

Let me know what it's like, I'm still on the fence about it

Pretty much the weekend of release me and two friends are going to marathon it in local multi, so I imagine I'll have a fair view of it compared to other hunting games following that. Seemed to get a good reception in Japan anyway, which is always a good sign.

Currently F1 2014, I know for the whole Codemasters haven't done a great job with the F1 series since the 2010 game as for the most part they've gone downhill with features being taken out, glitches staying present from previous years and new glitches in the game as well. I'm also playing Hyrule Warriors (I know I'm taking ages to get through it) and I'm planning on restarting Pokemon Y to try a different team and get me back in the mood for Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire. Every now and again I still find myself playing Skyrim when I load up the 360, this is despite a copy of a Destiny sitting right next to the Skyrim box, shows which I prefer!

Bayonetta 2, and its amazing! It's also bloody gorgeous to look at too, Platinum really have gone to town on it and the work and love they've poured into it really shows. Then there's a bit of Smash going on on the side, and that's probably going to go on for quite some time.

At the moment I keep playing bits of Shadow Complex on my Xbox 360

Spiderman 2 on the PS4

and Mario Kart on the Wii U

Shadow Complex is great its basically another MetriodVania style game and a very good one at that... Spiderman 2 is a bit average its fun but you know when you leave it and put it away your never going to think about it again... and what can I say about Mario Kart its brilliant just cant wait for the add on content.

Bayonetta 1 on Wii U, before I move onto the sequel. I'm not far in at all yet, but it's a blast so far.

Having unlocked Ganondorf on
Hyrule Warriors and fully established my 4 museum rooms in New Leaf I am opting to do exactly the same as Cave Dweller at the mo .. although I have little visits to first two as well coupled with some level 20+ Destiny and Pool Nation on occasion on the PS3.

Bayonetta 2 (I've bought the first on WiiU too, but yet to play it, but opted to start the sequel first), and having great fun with it, it's as satisfying to play as W101 was at the best of times, without some of the more fiddly, frustrating bits. Also, Evil Within on 360, which is also one of my favourite games this year.

Really want to play Evil Within, it looks great. Want to get a PS4 first though.

Currently on my second playthrough of Lightning Returns. Because I got to the 11th day and the world ended before I could save everyone.

Been playing Black Flag. It's what AC3 should have been - not compromising on quality for quantity. Sure, it's not the slickest game of all time. It's reusing the tiring formula for land combat, contracts, viewpoints, collectables, eavesdropping missions etc. It doesn't look great, doesn't run that great either (glitches, pop in textures). But it tries something new and refreshing with the focus on naval traversal/combat, has a personality to its world and characters (unlike the drab America and Rahtonhake:ton). Stealth is better too, albeit a tad simplistic.

Not gaming much these days. Rarely play Minecraft on my Laptop. Namely, the Final Fantasy VII Midgar Map. Also like to jump onto GTA V on PS3. Started story mode for the second time.

Fire Emblem Awakening. Determined to finish this time. I've had it since launch but have always lost interest around half way through or before. Not too fond of the Sacred Stones type set up but the game is alright.

I'm really only playing WWE 14 because of the multiplayer and the create a finisher, the ability to make wrestlers completely disregard the laws of physics is a great additions to any Sports game

I am looking forward to playing 15 on the next gen systems. Mostly because the hyper realistic graphics shall be ruined by my created finishers.
