    It's a Bethesda game, what did you expect? They're genuinely awful developers. Their best games are developed by other studios.

    Can you please add Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle to my list? Having finally digested today's presentation I need something Nintendo-like to play.

    Surely the PSVR bundles should work like the SNES Minis or Humble Bundle packs? They should only count if you play an actual game?

    I think Skyrim is great myself. Iíve sunk hundreds of hours into it. Hand to hand combat isnít the best, but an assassin with a bow is great. Loads of content with lots of engaging side quests ( the worst quest was probably the main one). Join the Dark Brotherhood or become a vampire and off you go on a trail of destruction.

    Iíd love to go back to Skyrim, but I was playing with mods, on an old computer, on a hard drive that went wrong. I probably could get it working again, but Iím just not sure I can be bothered with the hassle.

    It's interesting to note that the vr failure virus originated with patient zero, user TH14, spread to user Toaster and then on to user splosh. Users with a R or U user name should be on alert. It won't be long before it spreads to P users 😁

    I still regret nothing!

    Well technically Iím out. I just brought Lego city undercover and Spiderman. Been waiting for ages for the former to go on sale on the switch and the sale price for spidey was too good to pass up on.

    So Iím on 7. Though I am at the very end of Resi 4 (on 5-4 so a act left I think) so by the time one of them downloads I may have finished it. I could also maybe take GT Sport of my list as I have been playing it for two months, but still quite happy playing it to be honest. On level 35 I think at the moment.

    If you get Resi done before starting either of the other two I reckon weíd let you squeak through. Might have to give you a turd stamp for playing fast and loose with the rules mind!

    One the plus side, at least the economy is on the up with all this flagrant game buying.

    I think I would have cracked had it not being for the eyes haemorrhaging. As it is I havenít bought a new game this year and when I am up to it getting a fair bit of mileage out of God of War on the PS4. It helps that one of my mates is a trophy whore but hasnít platinumed it. I am determined to do it.

    I am still plugging on with Yoshi. Got 100% on the first 5 or 6 areas.

    Content wise it seems enormous. Especially as each level needs to be played at least twice in both directions to 100%. (Often 4 or 5 times as I am not that observant).

    It is certainly charming and has a reasonable amount of variety and polish. It is a long way short of the 3D Marios in terms of overall quality.

    Currently I prefer it to the New Super Mario Bros games. (Mainly because it is easier and therefore is fairly relaxing to play).

    Updated to first page, thanks rice_Sandwich! Sad to see the total number of games completed drop as weak-willed blobs of uncommitted flesh are torn from the noble and glorious host of the Pig Whippers.

    Given that me and Grax were doing most of the game completing the completion rate dropping is not that surprising. Grax bailed and I have been spending far too long in the office instead of playing games recently.

    I am really tempted to get Wargroove in the sale but a mate is threatening to lend me Blood and Truth and I really want to return to Zelda at some point. So Wargroove does not really fit in the schedule.

    (I will probably get sent to India for a few months at the end of the year though. So Zelda would fit well with that).

    Rightio, lev 100 on apex legends battlepass, so moving to add another game into the mix.

    Please add Life is Strange 2 as my second game. I will work through it as the episodes release from now.

    😃

    Imagine the novelty of playing a different game after all this time in the thrall of apex!

    Ok, Steamworld Heist is done (great fun). I just bought crypt of the necromancer on a whim so that needs to go on my list and please can you change BL2 to just the Fight for Sanctuary DLC as I only just realised you can start at level 30.

    I've begrudgingly accepted that octopath traveller is never going to be finished. I just can't get on with it. Wish I'd never bought it, especially for 50 notes. Oh well lesson learned

    Octopath is great for 30 hours, but then it really starts to get old. It's simple and accessible enough. Some characters are great to battle with and the combat system is generally very satisfying, but it didn't need so many characters, or chapters. It really didn't.

    I've got 2 more chapters before it can come off my list.

    This. It is worth picking up at some point because for those first 30 hours i was really captivated by it, it does some interesting stuff, and its charming. It just lacks the drive in its narrative and as dave says, it got too many characters that bloats the game, even if all of them i liked spending time with.

    I do have high hopes for a sequel though.

    I'm wavering. Something about the offers on One X units and XBL ultimate right now, and upcoming Gears 5, and the idea of getting back on XBL for some multiplayer shenanigans, and being able to replay all the OG Xbox/360 games I still have kicking about, and OHFUCKMEWHYWHATISHAPPENINGMAKEITFUCKINGSTOP....
