Yes, I played all 3 on the 360. Loved every one of them with part 2 being my favorite. I forget a lot so it will be a fresh experience for me for the most part.

Doll house. Once the gun is taken away, I turn into a big wuss. That baby chasing was a big “fuck this” turn it off moment  

Hopefully I can make some better progress now. 

 

That wasn't handled well, I agree. It gets better from there on out with an awesome ending.

Right? Like, it's just really not a very good game.

 

It's unfortunate, I saw what others said and ignored it as I was desperate for a new golf game.  Coming from Everybody's Golf, this game just isn't great.

Started the Shadow of the Colossus remake.  It's very proto-BoTW.  Or maybe BoTW is a more fleshed out Shadow.  Either way, I think modern Zelda owes a lot to its stamina meter use.

 

Other than some small vsync issues at the main temple, the PS4 60fps mode holds up great.

 

 

Started PM Oragmi King too recently.  As someone who skipped Paper Mario after TTYD, it isn't as bad as I expected.  Quite good, actually.  I just wish there was XP.

Took a chance and bought Cyberpunk this weekend. I'm playing on the PS5 and it's crashed twice in about 6hrs of gameplay, and other NPC glitches where they'll disappear or be standing 10ft in the air lol. But other than that, it's pretty awesome imo. And graphic wise, it's gorgeous in 1080p and despite it's scale it seems to run at 60fps. It's been a while since a game has sucked me in right away like this. I can't wait to get back to it!

Played 2 hours of ME2. I forgot how much more polished it is compared to part 1. 

Just got to ilium and it’s pretty gorgeous.  Man, I forgot about the stupid dlc flying mako.  I decided to just get all the missions over with in one go and my damn fish died. Stupid flying mako! Of course I didn’t realize they were dead until after my secretary told me she’d feed them. First time I didn’t save my whole crew.

Think I’m on Colossus number 12 now.  I heard Bluepoint made the controls easier when climbing?  There’s some slightly frustrating bits, but once you figure out the one thing that’s needed to take one down, it’s pretty straightforward.

There’s a game in my PS+ library I should download.

I couldn’t tell you exactly what changes they made, but my run through the PS4 version was far smoother than my (fuzzy memory of) the PS2 original.

Yeah, the reworked the controls in the remaster as one of the biggest complaints about the original was the frustration in regards to trying to sale the colossi.  The PS4 edition has a much more modern set of controls to make it the climbing mechanics work a bit more predictably.  I was all for the changes myself as Team ICO games in general always had lose controls.

I've played a bit more Metroid Fusion and I've now just travelled down the second elevator. I do love the GBA era of gaming - there's something about that assuredness of the SNES style of gameplay and graphics with that awareness that most people will be playing for 30 minutes or so, at most. 

 

I am however about a week away from having a load more free time, so I'll be flicking back to the PS4 (and maybe buy a few new Switch games) which means I should do my best to finish this soon so I don't drop off.

So much wasted potential. The sound is fantastic especially the cars and the combat is a Batman clone but there is to much emphasis on terrible side quests.

That game won @Commissar SFLUFAN's most forgettable game award for the year 2015!

 

I listened to so very many podcasts while playing that game.

Almost done Divinity:Original Sin -- I THOUGHT I was almost done.  But the Source Temple seems to go on forever - with boss fight, after boss fight, after boss fight.  None of them have been hard (I found some of the mid-game fights REALLY hard).  At this point, I just want the game to end.

I kind of got frustrated looking for something new to play, so on a whim I bought and downloaded the latest version of Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition with all of the DLC. It cost me a fraction of a new game.

 

Ii remember playing this many years back and enjoying, remembering that at the time I had wished there was more content for it when I had finished it, and I didn't find very much that made the search worth it. Now, I'm really enjoying it again, and there's TONS of content for it now.

 

It was one of the best D&D games they did back in the day, and I'm really enjoying my run through it again years later. Plus, there are about 7 huge DLC content packs that offer so much more content than I had available way back then.

Finished the campaign mode in Wreckfest.  Kept putting the game down, but once I got further into it, the races started becoming a lot more chaotic and fun.  Not a bad racing game for people who enjoy them, but aren't too into the sim style of racing.  The music is garbage in the game though, it's all sorts of alternative butt rock and I swear for a huge duration of the game, all I heard were nearly the same two songs being played over and over again.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition - Jumping into the first game again felt great. It wasn't until I watched a comparison video that I realized just how much they did to it, but I did notice a few things on my own, like actually being able to use a sniper rifle (playing Vanguard). 

 

I'm also using that handy quick resume feature on the XSX to bounce around to a couple of different things. I'll jump into Tetris Effect for 10 minutes or so at a time. I like it, but also every time I get into I think "I would rather play Lumines" which is probably blasphemous. I also finally got around to trying Gears Tactics. It's alright, but I'm not sure if I'll stick with it for long. The latest mission I played, which ended with the first boss fight, really felt like a slog to get through. I'm at a similar point with Code Vein. After a couple of hours, I'm kinda into it, but not sure if I'll stick with it for long.

We’re away from home, so we brought the Switch. I don’t have a huge array of options (Dark Souls, Pokemon Snap, Hades, Dead Cells and Spiritfarer) - but I’ve just played about 30 minutes of Spiritfarer and it was lovely.

Monster Boy: The Dragon Trap today.  Sometimes simplicity is a good thing.  I’ve never played a Master System game before, but I really like the upgraded art style and don’t think the retro visuals hold up so well.
