  1. I had no interest in this game until I watched the IGN review and now...this may well be my Christmas holiday game.
  2. Wife is still enjoying the game and about to start Chapter 4. I remember when I was about 7, of all things I bought a copy of N64 magazine and it described Pilot Wings 64 as a game for those "...who appreciated the little things in games" and my wife is that person. She enjoys the challenge and pressure, mixed in with the ticking over of the actual goal of the game (at least so far). It's also a great game to have in the background as I finish school work.
  3. I'm aiming to finish Arkham Knight soon, not because I want it to be over, but because I want to really commit to RE2. It has been good though, maybe they patched it, but so far I've not felt the drone sections feel intrusive. I'm going to wait until the December PS+ games are released, then either play that, or start to work through my two accounts worth of games, whilst I have time at least.
  4. My OT has been playing the game and has put about 7 hours or so into it so far. She says she's enjoying it and has been playing pretty much non-stop. She does however quite like games like; The Sims 4, Minecraft, Stardew Valley, where there's a lot of things to do, but not necessarily cinematic things.
  5. That open-world template did lead to some fantastic, story driven, cinematic (and ultimately great games). It did also lead to huge fatigue in the genre and it ending up quite stale and boring. Still though, those games are worth everyone playing at some point.
  6. Channel Four have bought it in the uk and so won’t be shown until 2020. Looks like I’ll be watching on my laptop
  7. So this was a lot harder than it had any right to be and I feel that I will return back to this list in a few days and edit it. However, I've chosen 7 games, with a number of "could have been on the list, but weren't quite there. Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii) It's been 8 years, but I still haven't played a more fun game on any console. For me, it's about as close to being the perfect game (I say based on memory, not after playing recently). Portal 2 (Xbox 360) The writing and the design are just incredible. Mario Kart 8 (Wii U) An odd choice for some (possibly) but a lot of my favourite gaming moments are shared ones. I played this over a winter with my now wife, pretty much every day and it's such a nice memory. Until Dawn (PS4) For the reasons above. Ocarina of Time 3D (3DS) Definitely cheating, but I never did finish OoT on the N64 and the three or so weeks I dedicated my free time to this was wonderful and worth while. Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds This falls very much in line with Super Mario Galaxy 2. An incredibly well designed game that has perfect pacing and gameplay. Journey (PS4) For me, the most important game of the last decade. I played it, I think in about 2016, when I was moving away from gaming as a hobby (I hadn't picked up anything for maybe 8 months prior). This came along and gave me back that love of the medium. The rest below, either were games that I loved,played a huge or have some sort of nostalgic memory for (I'm sure you can see, I love playing horror games with an audience, hence the inclusion of a few). Batman: Arkham Asylum (Xbox 360) Rocket League (PS4) Resident Evil 7 (PS4) The Last of Us Doom (PS4) Dead Space 2 Skyrim Red Dead Redemption Mass Effect 2
  8. I've just picked up the book (I read the Shining when I was 13 or 14 and loved it, so this was way overdue) and I could imagine, like pretty much every Stephen King story, it takes an awful lot to make them into successful movies.
  9. I'll be continuing with the stressful fun of Resident Evil 2 and balance it out with Overwatch. Although, I do have Arkham Knight to finish and the temptation is to absolutely marathon it so I can polish it off (as it would be nice to play RE2 with my wife and then try out Nioh).
  10. I used to really dislike people touching my back, though I couldn't tell you why (outside of not liking it once then acting like a cock for several years). Suffice to say, I'll never be an overly cuddly person at the best of times.
  11. Another good month (which at the moment means I'll put the games in my library and dream of playing them all one day).
  12. I've read quite a few of the 'Last Kingdom' series, but now after taking a break I can't remember which is the next book I need to read (my copies are spread out at my parents house, my mother/father in laws and mine so I have no clue). At some point, I'll bite the bullet and just buy a few and just see.
  13. The more I think about, the more this seems like the perfect game to play if you're forced to lie in bed for several weeks and you play it whilst watching a series on Netflix.
  14. It's been interesting seeing the reviews come out for the game. I watched the IGN (US) review this morning and they slated nearly every aspect of the game, but similarly told me barely anything about the game as a whole, just everything they didn't write. The actual score (6.8), to me seemed like a way to drive up web traffic, than a fair impression. Especially looking at others impressions (which by in large are in the 8-9/10 range). I'm not picking it up just yet as it seems like a User Review kind of game, but I'm glad I haven't pre-ordered.
