Still on Fallout 4. I'm at a point now where I've done almost every mission, and I'm not entirely sure what I have to do to get some sort of ending. It's very frustrating!

It's a great game though, although unlike the Witcher and Fallout 3/New Vegas I have felt myself getting quite bored at times.

Been playing The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing, the current Games With Gold freebie on Xbox One.

On the plus side, it was free and it's a looter in the same style as Diablo 3.

On the downside, prepare yourself for unfair mobbery of ludicrous proportions, a cryptic skill system that may or may not be working (it's genuinely hard to tell), plenty of convoluted backtracking if you want any of the entirely missable achievements and absolutely no difficulty balancing for the solo player whatsoever.
Oh, and plenty of bugs and glitches too.

I'd say anybody looking for a small-scale Diablo on the One should ignore Van Helsing and be looking into the backwards compatible Torchlight.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

Destroy All Humans, I've put about 4 hours into it now. It's really, really fun! Total B-Movie material but it manages to remain 'so bad it's good'. So long as the enemies/challenges toward the end of the game stay fun instead of frustrating I'll keep playing.

I've been debating whether to give that game a whirl, it looked so cool and fun but I never really tried it.

Speaking for the 360 version (Path of the Furon) I'm having an absolute blast! The game is tasteless, looks ugly and is about as deep as a sink full of water. In spite of that it's just a really fun sandbox filled with ridiculous weapons, cool powers and dumb enemies. Good for short bursts :)

Streamed some Turok 2
The controls are terrible, it really breaks the game

Then number 3, it gets everything bang on

Been trying to get into The Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth on Xbox One.

Mission failed. I think the biggest mistake I've made with this is not realising it's by the same folk who made Super Meat Boy. If I'd known that I wouldn't have gone near it. Super Meat Boy offered a dull art style and tedious over and over gameplay for very little reward. The Binding Of Isaac delivers exactly the same but with the added annoyance of being at the mercy of a random number generator. It's easily the biggest pile of joyless crap I've bought this year.

I'm currently playing both Superfrog and Alien Breed from the Google Store on my Hudl 2 combined with my iPega 9023 gamepad. Still superb games today. Determined to finish them both.

Had a quick blast on X-Men arcade tonight, I love this game! 'Welcome to Die', 'Master of Magnet', 'SHIELD!' among many other quotable lines.

The Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth on Xbox One.

*sigh*

Despicable game. Can't stop playing it. :oops:

Think it might be sending out subliminal beams.

I'm nearing the end of Knights of the Temple on Gamecube.

It's quirky but I love it.

After pumping 150 hours into fallout new vegas I have just started the dead money DLC pack. Seems quite different with it's even darker setting with enemy's that get back up if not killed.

Quite impressed with the 20 minutes played so far.

The weakest of the DLC packs in my opinion, those traps get really annoying.


Went to play a bit of DoA5 Ultimate, kept saying I hadn't downloaded some of the 20 or so costume catalogues, got bored redownloading them so gave up. Why do I have to mess around with this crap just to play it?
