Giving Just Cause 3 a play. Never played this series before but it is very similar to games like GTA/SR in terms of the whole sandbox thing. Having a blast. Literally, since when I blow s**t up lots of things explode around me, lol. Although there is no character creation mode, I'm still getting into the game.

Getting into the final (I think) chapters of FFXV and it's taken on a new tempo, quite liking it atm.

Also, my 2 best friends had the hairbrain scheme of pitching in and buying me a Switch!!! With ZELDA!!!! I just started it today and it's awesome. I bought a carry case/ screen protector/ headphone combo for the Switch which costed a pittance as well. Pretty much believe I owe it to my mates to at least show them Zelda on the move next time I head to their place.
Seriously, I was never going to afford it and they dropped the S-Bomb on me, what legends.(no pun Nintended) :-)))

As for all the concerns and negative press for the Switch that I've been reading, perhaps I'm just really lucky but I haven't experienced any of those. Fingers crossed, touch wood it stays that way.

I'm surprised and delighted that with Zelda you can die directly and indirectly by things such as edges (even falling off during fights), losing stamina while climbing and swimming, etc. Seems like there's a risk/reward factor for exploration, particularly early in the game when you're not ripe with hearts. Nintendo seemed to have learned a thing or two about difficulty which is scratching me right where I itch.

Still playing FFXV. I just finished fishing all the fishes and collected all of Ignis' recipes. :)
One last menace dungeon left. But I need to play more Totomonstro and farm that damn MX Angelus.

I just finished playing Batman: Arkham Origins after playing it for about a month or so. Man that game was fun. Played through New Game and NG+, got all Riddler data, solved all cases, got all locations, challenge medals, supervillain side missions, etc., etc., but I'm still at 99%. Found out that although the game specifically tells you that you don't have to play I Am the Night mode for 100%, turns out that you do. Screw that, I'm done. Really liked the game otherwise, though.

Played Payday 2 for a few hours, and it's just way too tedious on single player with AI teammates. Besides, I needed to free up more hard drive space on the PS3, so deleting it was kind of an easy choice.
I like big butts, but I do have the tendency to lie quite a bit.

party hard on PC
basically you're a killer who crashes a party and covertly kills everyone.
multiple characters to play as and a stage editor.
very fun with lots of replay value.

Thinking of getting this, it's 18 bucks (Australian) for PSPlus members atm. It's one of those "always wanted to try but never had time" titles. It looks great, I was tempted to get the Medici edition which was very affordable back when it was released.

Whew. Just finished Far Cry 4. There is way, way too much stuff to do...and like a sucker, I went ahead and got 100% completion.

The game is just chock full of distractions. You'll be going to an objective, see a courier drive past you that you can kill for karma, find several loot boxes that are in your immediate path to your objective, get attacked by a pack of wolves, then come across Golden Path members being attacked by either more animals or royal army troops. It's like this game pulls you in 17 different directions when you're trying to get from point A to point B. But once you unlock the Buzzsaw, it's practically like God Mode and it's fun again. Such a weird mess of a game...

Far too many to count, since I play a lot of games at the same time, but the most important ones would be FFXIV, FFXV, Mobius Final Fantasy, Lecarde Chronicles 2, YGO Legacy of the Duelist, Walking Dead Season 3, Zelda Breath of the Wild and, of course, replaying all Castlevania games I own.

Purchased Steam version of The Legend of Dark Witch 1&2, and returned to them after a full journey of Lecarde Chronicles 2. The first Dark Witch has some really great pieces of music (06.Freesia as an example), amazing combination of Gradius and Mega Man, OK voice acting, but final level is cruelly unforgiving (No life refills in Normal difficulty after beaten a boss! Reminds me of Mega Man ZX-level of unforgiving!)
But I didn't like the second game that much for some reason. Lack of variation from first game, sub weapons are not useful at all, and there may have other reasons for that.


(PS Vita is the best console to play Dark Witch series - perfect screen ratio. Steam version has fatal quirk of key config, and the second game is not on Vita...Damn it!)

Haha, they're adorable. They're cute when they pounce on Ajay and he pulls them off of him, and they're just swinging at air. I can't stay mad at them when they kill me. (Unlike yaks and rhinos, which seem to stunlock you to oblivion when there's more than one attacking...)

Oh, I get absolutely livid when developers force you to make certain choices that literally step on your own morals. It's f**king stupid of them. Especially if all the choices revolve around going against what you want out of the game. What you want to see happen in the game. I don't know why they do this. Maybe they're secretly on the lookout for the next kid criminal or something. Just stupid of them. At least in reality there's always more then two choices to be made. Like Captain Kirk had said in Operation: Annihilate; "I want that third alternative!" Damned straight  8)

also been playing outland lately on my z-box.  it's a very nice looking metroidvania-type with light/shadow mechanics reminiscent of lords of shadow.  other than that, i don't know much about it, but it's turning out to be a really, really good game.
