Been playing a bit of WarioWare: Get it Together!

Man it bummed me out that you have to mix things up by playing different characters with different ways of interacting. I would MUCH rather have a traditional WarioWare game where I just play hundreds of microgames without needing to think too hard...

So yeah.. the game is okaaayy... but they didn't do it right. WAAHHHHH.

Just started playing Overboard!

Not the PS1 game, which was called Shipwreckers! in the US. This is a new game and a twist on a whodunnit mystery.

The twist is, you are the killer and it's your job to make sure everyone else doesn't know it's you. It's a loop game where you reset each time you fail, but the game lets you sorta breeze though some parts you've already done. It's presentation is a bit like Fallout Shelter. It's fun and the writing is really good.

There's multiple ways to approach the game. You can try your best to convince people you're not the killer. Or you could kill everybody. Or.. point the finger at somebody else... ehhh there are lots of options, but the difficulty is finding the right path to get to each one. I would recommend this game. :cool:

Erm..
I'm currently playing Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo (PS4), and it's probably one of the worst racing games I've played in quite some time!



It's going to be a bit of a chore going for the platinum trophy on this one.

I've just been enjoying FIFA 22 and F1: 2020 over the past few days/weeks. Looking forward to playing Red Dead Redemption 2 later tonight as well.

I've finally had some time this weekend to get on my new PS5 and had a few hours oh F1 2021, think I might treat myself to a proper driven setup up with a steering wheel and peddles

Going to try to jump into Horizon Zero Dawn soon because I really want to play the sequel now that it is out. I have the first downloaded on to the PS5 already so just a case of starting it up.

Just a little bit of NS2, not even a huge amount because I have to keep carrying rookies which Im not good at >_> at least I'm getting some skins from playing the new matchmaking.

A little less than 10 days later and I finally got around to it. Started it up and played for a bit and I have to say, it's quite fun. I didn't like it much the first time I tried it a while ago but that might have been down to the lack of 60FPS. Once you get used to it, it's a bit difficult to play certain games.

Definitely, you wonder how you ever managed beforehand. It's even worse when you go for higher refresh rates, even moving the mouse on the desktop at 60 feels awful now D:

Just Civ V with one of my buddies, had a pretty solid early game so now I'm conquering all of the city states without much issue.

I'm currently playing some Elden Ring with some OG Silent Hill 1 for good measure (and for research purposes..!)

Elden Ring… yeah it's good. It's expansive. But it still is the same Soulsborne formula. I was hoping it would be a little more accessible. But it's not! Same old pattern learning combat.

Aaaaand Silent Hill……

There is a reason PS1 games aren't really remastered. It's very dated and awkward. But I like it still, it's creepy and charming at the same time.

A lot, and I mean a lot of FIFA 22 yesterday. Tried to finish my 20 games for the FUT Champions mode since I'm busy today and I did manage it. Playing that many games was not fun though but I got the rewards that I wanted!

That is an absolutely insane amount of FIFA in one day!

Yeah, a bit too much. After the first few, it just becomes a chore really but you have to grind for those rewards if you want to keep up with the other players. You can spread it over 3 days of course but it's just easier to get it over and done with in a day.

Well, much respect for the dedication! I sure wouldn't be able to do that!

I've had enough Elden Ring, huge open worlds with many locations…

.. and now I'm playing Fallout 4 with lots of mods enabled (lore-friendly).

Prior to this I played New Vegas and 3 with over 100 mods applied to each. In some ways a modded Fallout 3 can look better than 4…

Fallout 4 is .. it's a lot more colourful than any of the other games, but a lot of the locations are kinda half-assed and not as good as they could have been. I would say New Vegas is still the best in the recent series.

I just hate myself, playing all these big open world games… 😂

Just NS2 as usual :v Only 7 hours away from unlocking the gold matchmaking badge now, and I think 147 wins away from unlocking the last skin (which is a pretty neat Fade skin but I'm unsure if I'll use it since it's not purple).

I've given Diablo Immortal a try on Android.

It's.. Diablo. Mobile feels like the ideal platform for it. The game got a LOT of stick from the community when it was announced (probably cos of how it was announced...)... but it's good?

Picked up FF7R the other day since it finally hit Steam so playing a bit of that in the evenings once NS2 matchmaking is over for the day.
Enjoying it so far, runs great on Linux which is always nice.

I've been playing RE: Dead Aim for 'research' purposes.. It's not that bad actually. What a bizarre combination of third person exploration AND an on-rails type shooter.

On top of that, been playing Vampire Survivors, Final Fantasy Tactics, The Quarry and RE3 remake.

Erm..
I'm currently playing Driver: San Francisco (PS3), since Ubisoft have announced they're finally shutting down the servers.



I've only briefly played it before on the Xbox 360 and didn't really think much of it, but then again I didn't really give it chance. I'm obviously prioritising the online trophies at the moment, and am quite enjoying the experience..

Soul Hackers 2, working pretty well on Linux but there is the odd crash on startup.
Games pretty good, not too big into the soundtrack so far but I'm enjoying everything else. Have it running at 4k downsampled to 1080 and it looks amazing
