Taking a break from NS2 now that I've gotten my T5 badge back, so I've just been playing more of Gnosia. I thought it was good to begin with but I'm enjoying it a good bit more now that exposition is happening more often.

Currently juggling a bunch of games at once:

- Shadow of the Colossus / PS4 version on the PS5. I hope they patch it as the 4K resolution mode has a shocking frame rate.. it’s unplayable in that mode! Despite that.. still a fantastic game. Loved the PS2 version and the PS3 remaster. The PS4 remake is the best of the bunch for certain.

- The Last Guardian / PS4 version on the PS5. An intriguing game from the same developer as above.. It’s fun but a bit exhausting to play.

- Sackboys Big Adventure / PS5. Still playing this, it’s way better than you’d expect. I’m especially enjoying the Super Mario Sunshine-esque time attack stages with all come complete with COASTED by deadmau5 playing constantly in the background. 😂

I tried out a new game called Knockout City which is currently available as a beta for this weekend. It's a unique game but I'm honestly not sure how much I would enjoy it. The beta was a bit boring but they did mention they would be adding a lot more at launch

Still working through my back catalogue of games, my main focus was on Assassin's Creed Origins which I've just completed.

When I've needed a break from stealthly killing Romans I've been playing Motral Kombat 11, Dirt 5 and Forza Horizon 4 (mainly the Lego DLC).

Currently playing The Sinking City and It Takes Two.

The Sinking City sounds great on paper. HP Lovecraft open word detective action adventure. But it’s kinda lacking in polish that you’d expect from a modern game.

It Takes Two is great fun. It’s (thematically) kinda dark though which is strange.

More Gnosia, and a bit of Civ V last night. First time I played in years and I was having a match against one of my mates but the damn thing kept crashing and then when I rejoined it wouldn't let me do anything, so gotta figure that out cos it's a savage game otherwise

Started playing a bit of Cities Skylines yesterday and today. The game was free a while back for PS Plus members so I had a go. I really thought it was going to be a relaxing game but it will annoy the hell out of you lol

I didn't really touch Call of Duty again since initially loading it up.. 😅

I keep dabbling with Poker Club on the PS4, though it doesn't have much of a community and I hate playing against the cheating AI.

I played The Simpsons: Hit & Run on the PS2 for about an hour the other day.. It was pretty fun just to play something without aiming for trophies.

Got 2 144hz monitors today so I had a few test games of NS2 and will deffo be playing more later. The new monitors so far seem to be having a positive effect, even if my accuracy isn't necessarily any higher

I haven’t had much chance for gaming recently, although I did boot up The Last of Us 2.. And I’ve elected to skip all cutscenes as the tone of that game just puts me off. I’ll soldier through it eventually! I wasn’t able to skip that Take on Me part so I just muted it and wandered away while it played 😅

I've just finished Dead Space 3 (backward compatible on Xbox). I'm glad I finished the series but felt this was definitely a step down from the previous entries. A lot of the claustrophobic setting is gone losing the horror elements and the weapon crafting system is quite simply terrible - it really didn't work at all as a game mechanic.

The set pieces are still good, the action fun and the story decent enough but the convoluted weapons system and lack of horror elements made this final entry a somewhat disappointing one.

I also completed the Awakened DLC. This was a lot more horror focused and a lot more interesting than the main game.

I still need to sit down and properly play through the first one.. I also have the second one and all of its DLC, pretty sure I don't have the third yet though.

I would love to play Hit & Run again but I don't want to go out and get a PS2 just for it and then be disappointed. Had that issue with some of the older GTA games recently because they don't feel as good as they used to feel.

I'm not currently playing anything in particular but I have been on and off playing Rocket League on the PS4. I love just hopping on for a quick game or two with online players. I also play a bit of Pokemon on the Switch.

A little change of pace and genre lately. I've been playing F1 2020 and WRC 9. I also started the Call of Duty Cold War campaign at the weekend but only played the first mission.

I'm a huge fan of racing games.. I haven't played either of those yet though, F1 2019 and WRC 6 are the latest ones I've played of those series.

I started the campaign a little while ago when I got the game but stopped after the second mission. It's pretty interesting but I'm just addicted to the multiplayer part so I haven't got as much time for the campaign.

For some reason I love racing games. I've got 9 installed just now lol. Not sure why I like them so much, I've no real interest in cars other than them getting me from A to B and I've no interest in motorsports. I particularly enjoy rally games but both Dirt Rally 2.0 and WRC 9 have a huge jump in difficulty from previous games.

I just bought the Platinum Edition of Dying Light today so I'm revisitng that tonight. Not played it for a few years.

I've just played an hour of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 on the PS2.. That soundtrack 🥰

Gaming used to be so much more enjoyable for me back in the day, hopefully by playing some of these older games again I can rediscover that spark.

Just more NS2 since Nocturne isn't working, still just winning some then losing some, but I've been talking with the devs about a Linux specific bug where the shadow beneath text in the chat can butcher your performance (literally a 100fps loss if several messages are popping up), they managed to replicate it so hopefully it gets patched out soon!
