Shantae and the Pirate's Curse - really enjoying it so far, controls feel spot on and it's full of character

I'm playing choice Halo instalments. Just finished Reach and jumped to Halo 2 Anniversary, skipped Combat Evolved as I'd played that to death long ago. Keeping to "Heroic" too as CBA'd with Legendary, especially with Halo 2's sniper Jackals. Will do Halo 3 next, maybe ODST if I don't get bored.

Really like the remixed music in Halo 2, especially the New Mombasa and Delta Halo levels. I didn't know they had remastered Halo 2 until I fired it up.
ODST bores me not touched reach yet but love 1 2 3 4 and 5
I liked ODST. :)
I loved ODST. :)

Playing an indie PS4 game called Valley. Was on ps4 sale and love to give some of these smaller games my cash otherwise they'll disappear! Also lots of new Doom. They've got the speed and intensity perfect. A great way to do a reboot. :)

Sonic 1 for the Master System, probably one of the best games of all-time for me (better than the Mega Drive version by a notch)! Obviously setting the emulator to emulate PAL/50Hz. ^^

I'm up to Labyrinth Act 1. Less annoying than the MD Labyrinth Zone.

Just recently got the platinum for Fallout 4, I'm giving Fallout 3 a go to get that Platinum and I'm loving it all over again, after that I will more than likely go back to fallout 4 again to get all the DLC trophies

I finished my small Halo marathon with Halo 3. It's all pretty much as I remembered it; I just didn't really care for the sequels like I did Combat Evolved, and that's probably more down to nostalgia.

I picked-up Deadspace in the Xbox sale so I may replay that next, then the sequels.

Some Verdun. It's pretty good but the problem with online-only games like this is that they depend too much from the playerbase. In other words, I'm not sure if there will be many players in a few months or years left, save for a small enthusiast niche. And for PVP-only stuff this can be an issue.

Aliens: Colonial Marines for the 360.

It's pants but not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Just a bit boring.

Back on Project Diva to try and at least clear everything on Hard. Magical Sound Shower is hateful on this difficulty.

Still Overwatch, too. Looking forward to trying the moonbase map when it goes live.

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris. Quite fun to play with smooth controls and logical puzzles. Main annoyance is that it's so zoomed out it can be hard to see what's going on at times, and it's set up for co-op play so almost impossible to get a gold ranking whilst playing solo. Also, it has this rather unfortunate shadow........

Tekken 7, really having fun with it, Lucky Chloe is amazing and Akuma looks and plays great. Online doesn't seem to be working for me right now though, keep getting 'connection to opponent has been lost' messages when I pick an person to match up with :?
