Blaster Master Zero, which I bought solely because you can play as Shantae and Shovel Knight. It's... fine. I'm not gripped.

Been playing a fair bit of the Destiny 2 beta and so far I'm not won over at all, it's okay don't get me wrong but I'd rather just play vanilla Destiny.

Also halfway through Tales from the Borderlands and I'm absolutely loving it, certainly the best TT series since the Wolf Among Us.

Still Birthright, I'm actually starting to get really bored of it, the story's not exactly amazing in my opinion and so far (currently on level 23) the level design has just consisted of bigger maps and more enemies. I know there's only 27 chapters in it so feel like I should stick it out till the end but I'm getting tempted to pack it in and play more Metroid Prime 2 Echoes.

Edit, just finished Birthright now, last few levels didn't seem to take as long thankfully so I got through them quite quickly. The slight twist with Garron was to be expected as well. Still think it's been an 'OK' game to play through but for me personally I'm not going to be in a rush to play through any other Fire Embelm games. Definitely going to leave it a bit before starting Revelations, although I think there's a reasonable chance I won't play it at all, heard the story isn't meant to be anything special (although that seems to be a recurring theme for the three Fates games).

Will crack on with some more Metroid Prime 2 Echoes next.

Been playing through a load of FFXII The Zodiac Age and it's an absolutely wonderful game. The combat is certainly different from previous entries as it feels like it plays it self for most of the time, but the gambit system is really clever and I'm always tinkering with them. Graphically it also looks rather nice, textures have been spruced up a lot, the face's still look a bit off though.

Playing Splatoon 2 online for the most part. Got up to Level 10 so far, but I seem to go on winning streaks and losing streaks, especially the latter. Still, all games count towards getting more weapons, so that's cool I guess.

Also with FIFA 18 on Switch coming out in a couple of months I decided to give FIFA 13 Wii U another go. Played a friendly between Man City and Real Madrid (since an actual friendly was played between these teams in real life recently. Played as Man City first half, played as Real second half. Final score, 3-3, 2-1 Real in the first half, 2-1 Man City in the second half. Basically CPU 4, me 2. Conclusion, I suck.

Cant get enough of:

PC: Stormfall: Age of War and Clash of clans

PS4: Neverwinter and Horizon: ZD

PS3: v late to the GTA V party but many wonderful cars now and I cant stop playing tennis against Amanda.. have a match its how every tennis game should be (swearing and showboating should be mandatory).

Mobile: Clash of clans - clan leader takes up too much time but the new builder island stuff is a nice distraction.

Wii U: Z: BotW, MH3U still haha. not switch'd yet. With those two titles I can get my Ninty kicks.

P.S. Not seen if Splatoon still works on WiiU if anyone still plays it on the U please let me know.

Presume the Wii U version may have a half decent userbase still playing, personally I barely ever touched the online modes. Planning to alter that when I get my Switch and Spaltoon 2 in a few weeks. Slightly tempted to try my hand at Splatoon again but I'd probably be awful at it :lol:

Good to see you back anyway Bix :)

Blitzing the mahussive array of dungeons in the free content of Neverwinter on PS4 at the mo. Let us know how you find Splatoon 2.. Lots of people probably have already but its good to get as much feedback as poss. I may well end up with a switch for Christmas. Not sure yet.

Messing around in dojo and arcade in guilty gear xrd, the visual style and animations are something else. May looked like a really fun character so now I'm learning as her

Also started dark chronicle today, seems like a fun dungeon crawler so far

Finally loaded Metroid Prime 2 Echoes back up, just stepped into the Torvus area of the game.

Well the Boost Guardian can do one. Wouldn't be anywhere near as bad if there was a closer save point. Think I'll have to try and hunt some energy tanks down (currently on 3) before trying it again.

Yeah, the Boost Guardian is generally considered to be one of the hardest bosses in the game. Took me ages across multiple playthoughs to beat that guy.

Haven't been playing much other that Splatoon 2 recently, not a lot of free time any more and I don't always want to be using it to play games.

Can't even remember how I beat it all those years ago. I did try it again and I still got beat :( I'll leave it for a while and then try again. I find myself in a similar position re free time as well, find myself having fewer but longer gaming sessions now. Hopefully (when I get it) the Switch will be a bit of fresh air, being able to play anything, anywhere and being able to put the console into sleep meaning you can pick up where you left a few hours later like the DS family of systems. I am finding myself looking forward to Splatoon 2 the more I watch/read stuff about it though, looks great!

I've also been playing Echoes, I finished Torvus yesterday. Chyyka or whatever is an absolute bullet sponge and as such a drag to fight through both phases. Boost Ball guardian was pretty hard, I heard it was way harder in the original tho

I haven't braved the online yet, but glad to hear there are actually people still playing it

I want to properly invest some time in learning the mechanics and getting better at fighters in general, shame its harder to find the time with this new job

Uncharted 4 multiplayer, specifically King of the Hill at the moment. Really just getting back into the swing of things in anticipation for The Lost Legacy.

I've been going through loads of Ghost Recon Wildlands for the past week, and it's actually not that bad. Yes the game is repetitive and it's full of glitches but it's a lot of fun especially with a few friends.

Played a bit of Just Cause 3 the other day since it was free. Probably won't do that again, it's not a good game.

Good lord, Gigantic's so fun. Bar two or three games, I haven't thought about launching Overwatch in a month or so - couldn't begin to imagine that happening before. I'll probably go back for the summer games event, but Gigantic is my go-to, for sure.

Also playing FFVII (Steam); preparing for my fight with Emerald and Ruby Weapon. Before this playthough, I used to think the Materia system was just OK (certainly not as interesting as others had made it out to be) but with actual experimentation - and a little bit of research into the mechanics of some of the materia - it's been quite eye-opening with the possibilities (some obvious, some not). I'm looking forward to testing my set-up against the two super-bosses.
