Zombies mode is bloody difficult. I'm trying to unlock the trophies for finishing the main easter egg, jesus H! There's about 35 separate steps to follow with a manic difficulty curve. Not convinced I'll be able to finish it...

Also been playing more Overwatch with my team. Finally finished my ranked placement matches for Season 2, got put into the Platinum category. Chuffed 8)
That perk thing sounds like good news for me. I've been playing Modern Warfare Remastered and I'm finding Veteran to be next to impossible at points thanks to the infinite spawning enemies and tiny health bar of my character. The campaign itself though is still ace, I did a regular difficulty playthrough which was great fun.

Picked up an Xbox One Elite with Rare Replay. Lots of fun to be had there, though I dont think some of the older titles will capture my attention for long. So I've been playing a few games on there and also dabbling with Killer Instinct. I've been enjoying it, though i hate the Auto Combo function. Holding forwards and spamming a button shouldn't be a option in fighting games. Not sure if it is disabled in Ranked Match?

Dragon Quest Builders! Picked it up on impulse today and completed the first chapter. I really like it so far! It has all the compulsiveness of Minecraft but with more direction and more immediate rewards. Surprisingly, the writing is also pretty funny.

The only thing dragging my enjoyment down is knowing that each chapter has a time related challenge to complete. I don't want to feel like I have to speedrun, I want to chill and build.

Brothers: a Tale of Two Sons for the second time. Wonderful game that tells a great story without any text or spoken words. Got a box of tissues ready for the ending as well :cry:

Oblivion on the 360. I never finished it, played loads in 2007 then went back to it in 2011 and continued last week.

I must have put 20 hours in this week alone. Love it.

In between games on Paragon....

Killer Instinct on Xbox One. Auto combo BS aside, it's actually quite fun. Not a bad set up for a F2P game

Gears 4 purely for online play

Infinite Warfare online. I'm in the minority when I say I love it. It's not the best by a long chalk, but the amount of critism that's been levelled at it seems so unfair.

Still playing Battlefield 1, had a great session on Friday night with 5 of my mates online and we all picked different classes and played the game properly....certainly made Saturday night when I played it on my own a much harder experience with nobody spotting targets or resupplying me with ammo/health.

Downloaded a mod for Football Manager 2016 that adds in leagues down to level 23 of the Football pyramid. I WILL take Shaw Lane Aquaforce to the Premier League!

Mini Metro, which is proving rather addictive.

Fifa 15, career mode. Getting ready to retire my player, but not sure if it'll be worth it. Is there an option to carry on as a a player manager??

Finally got 99 blocks without losing a life in Tricky Towers, my favourite PS+ freebie of the year.
