    In a bit of randomness I started on Portal 2 last night, so please add that to my list.

    I'm not anywhere near done with Judgment. In fact, I haven't even started.

    I'm playing 13 Sentinels but I started on it before the challenge began so I'm not filling one of my precious slots with it. Maybe then I'll start on Judgment, though I've recently been eyeing Persona 5 hungrily. We'll see.

    All hail the Duck Breaker and his/her/its benevolence of 4 slots!

    Sigh....please add Kingdom Hearts All-in-One Compilation into a slot, O Duckbreaker. That's not going to get freed up any time soon.

    At least FFXV is almost done, credits have rolled but I still need to do two more of the dlc episodes to count it out. Aleste Collection is two games down, but since I wanted to play all five, that's here to stay. Oh and Yakuza 0 still hasn't been started. Let's hope there isn't any good psn sales this week eh?

    So I finished Half Life Alyx but realised it wasn't in a slot. So that can be chalked up! Woop.

    @Vortex808 blimey! You overtook me. So much for playing casually. :-D

    Iím level 25 and closing in on the end I think. DLC to go after that though.
    I did a mision or few side missions a night I guess, plus a few control points/shd caches if i passed them en route.

    I really enjoyed it. Story was balls mind. I did the strongholds at level 30 which was probably too high as they were reasonably ok. Bit of a challenge, but rarely downed. Plus i had the hive reviver just in case.

    I might do the dlc, but may just park it and tool about in post-game levelling from time to time.

    Nice. I only just remembered about the Dark Zones at level 27. Went in one this morning and had some good (nervous) fun extracting my lewt.

    Might start the strongholds now, given what youíve said.

    I think 28 is recommended in game for the strongholdd, so maybe level up once more yet.

    Although 30 was suggested for the last one and that was really ok too.

    I tended to be turret, plus decent rifle and marksman rifle to keep that at bay and didn't struggle. AR or shotty may be more difficult if you prefer getting up close and personal.

    I need to do more faffing about in the dark zone. Tried when it first opened up and struggled, so not been back much tbh.

    Iím Rifle plus Shotgun, which has served me well. I use the rolling mines - turret was a bit pedestrian for me. Start every encounter by sneakily taking out seven or eight dudes (skill points FTW!), then move in for the mop up. :)

    I think the three strongholds are 26, 28, and 30. Iíll give the easiest one a go. Iím a sliver from levelling up anyways.

    Really enjoyed this game. The story, as you say, is bobbins. And the torture porn in the videos and some audio logs is embarrassingly bad and in poor taste. But set that aside and the whole thing has been fantastic. Incredibly moreish.

    I've been meaning to give Division 2 another shot at some point- after all, I loved Vigor and that's basically the Dark Zones from Division turned into a full game. Not taking a slot with it until I've at least cleared AssCreed Syndicate though.

    Breath of the Wild is definitely done, I mopped up the last couple of memories this morning, got a full set of Ancient armour, and pounded Ganon once more for good measure. I could spend another dozen hours getting all the shrines, Korok seeds and dragons, but I'm not using a slot for that

    I love a turret, in every game with the option, i have to use it. Or maybe a mech. 😃

    The videos were not great. The hammer one was the one that really made me go O_o. Definitely needless violence for the sake of it. .

    Definitely moreish so far. The end game of the first was where I faltered, but I think I'll still grind on for a bit & see how this one goes.

    Right lads. I really want to bail on Crash 4. I just actually raged deleted it. Itís a really infuriating game to play. Itís cost be a controller in the process - not me, R2 button failed on me.

    Currently on the Crate escape level (level 38/43). Itís been painful just getting this far. And expensive. Honestly surprised by some of the reviews. Think nostalgia led a few noses. The platforming is woeful. Genuinely woeful. Itís cheap. It actually really makes you realise how wonderful Mario games are to play. How good itís movement and connection to the game world is. Crash as none of that. The worst aspect is there no depth perception to the game. I should have seen the circle underneath crash in videos to show you where you are in correlation to the floor as a massive warning sign. Guess I was led by nostalgia too. I would argue that it isnít second rate either. To be fair to the developers there is a lot of
    content there for players to enjoy. Just that you have to enjoy the content first.

    So can I? Pretty please 🙏 donít think I have hated a playing a game as much as this.

    I'm using a turret and a healing hive in the Division 2, with plenty of skill points. I'm actually finding it a bit OP, sure I struggled more in the first game. Good fun though.

    Try the seeker mines with the mode that splits into sub-munitions. Every fight starts with half a dozen bad guys cartwheeling through the air. Itís glorious. :)

    How do you unlock settlements, incidentally? I've got the first one (the theatre) but in East Mall I've taken over all the control points and have visited the settlement (castle) a couple of times, but it's still white, not green.

    There are only two settlements. Theatre that you have, then another one West of the White House youíll come to soon enough.

    Castle is a special case, as should be obvious if youíve been in there yet, so doesnít become a quest hub or anything.

    The game should be suggesting missions out West for you before too long.

    It's not obvious though I have been in - please enlighten me :)
    I'm paying the absolute minimum of attention to anything other than the shooting in this.

    It got chemical weaponed up the whazoo, I think. Uninhabitable as a result.

    Aha. I should probably pay more attention - I think I understand about 10% of the metagame, and I'm already level 13.

    I was clueless on some of the underlying systems into the 20s. They come into focus when you need them, Iíve found.

    I started a Clan. We should all do a Pigwhipper session sometime.

    🎯 Yakuza Kiwami

    Main storyline done, most of the substories, dabbled with the mini games. Apparently itís taken over 50 hours and Iíve loved every minute of it. Fighting off the urge to buy the remastered collection and Judgment.

    Started Sekiro, Iím crap and have already caused 3 people to get rot essence without beating the horse riding son of a whore. This may take some time.

    Why certainly. How could I be so mean as to eternally punish your poor judgement in game buying?

    With a punishment CHALLENGE of course!!!

    So Crash can be removed if you are able to complete a challenge on one of your other games (unbeaten or even prev beaten)

    You have:
    Dragon Quest 11
    Football Manager 21
    Bad North
    and have previously completed Ass Creed Odyssey

    Pigwhippers, I request that you come up with a suitable challenge for one of those games. Something beyond the normal completion criteria like a superboss or High difficulty challenge (but not impossible).

    Oh, and an update is on its way tonight hopefully.

    Picked up Doom 64 for the Switch today. Been a good few years since I played it (1999. I was 14. Blockbuster guy should have asked for ID...).

    What's this clan and on which system? I could join, as I have yet to join, or create one on xbox.

    It'd save me creating a useless clan for an achievement. I did ask in the div 2 thread a bit ago, but never spotted a reply, so assume any eg ones are dead.

    @Vortex808 I made one called Slaine for reasons even I canít comprehend. Apparently the bounties are locked behind clan level ups so I was keen to try. :)

    I think we should have one day a year where weíre allowed to play as many games as we want. But once midnight tolls, we return to our list.

    The PIGWHIP Purge, if you will.

    (I donít actually want to do this, I just thought it sounded cool)
