As it's currently £29.99 in the sale I finally got myself a copy of Horizon Zero Dawn for my PS4 Pro, all I can say is wow it's stunning. I am not that far into it but it's just blowing me away how good it looks and plays, the story is also fantastic.

Putting more effort into Eliza in Tekken 7, really enjoying her juggle combos. I'm jumping between her and Lucky Chloe until I get better and then back to Alisa.

I'm playing Anima PS4 it's a Devil May Cry game from a budget company, and while its deficiencies are readily apparent, I feel it's a charming game except the second playable character the demon she had trapped in the book - worse then Charmy Bee his voice actor is game ruining). The nameless heroine the 'bearer of calamities' is the powerhouse character , she does decent damage has a running punch that she homes in on the Puppets etc and a dodge roll. The book demon is a faster weaker character with no dodge or lock on moves move just a dash.

Book demon Looks like a male vampire from Twilight, and talks in a mumbling drug induced haze. He says things like "Hey Baby", Wayhay back of the net" ". Looks it's supposed to be a century's old demon - that wants to kill everybody on the planet, eats babies and owns a Wii U and actually enjoys it so obviously somebody that evil just has to be destroyed. Not a singing demon that sings about putting his boot up monsters backsides. I just can't suspend belief that a supposed god would talk like some football supporter.

I've had this game ages on returning I'm really like it. As most of the Mansion is available to you from start, the difficult fights can be left to when your more powered up.

Even though I've still got plenty of games to work through, I found myself once again returning to Mega Man 1-6. Ended up playing the Mega Man Legacy Collection challenge mode again and completed the challenge for beating all bosses with only your default buster. Took me 35 minutes but I wasn't happy with my performance against several of the bosses so I've begun trying to perfect each one of them.

Not doing too bad so far, I can beat all the Mega Man bosses without taking any damage, so I'm not working on the MM2 bosses which are probably the hardest of the bunch to do since they are some of the toughest bosses in terms of patterns (Air Man, Quick Man and Wood Man especially). MM3 wise I should be able to do pretty much all the bosses fine bar Needle and Shadow Man and from there things actually get easier!

The Witcher 2 - Better graphics are a given but it feels much tighter too which is nice. Very early into it but so far I'm loving it!
