Breath of the Wild on the Wii U, It's a great looking game and I love the freedom of exploration. I'm just getting frustrated by so many instant deaths, the worst so far was I died only to be returned back to an area I'd recently warped from and have a bokoblin stab me in the back the instant I appeared on screen Aaarrgggg!!! :evil:

Also playing Yooka-Laylee on Steam Linux.

A slight break from Rocket League and played Nex Machina. You can see some call backs to Resogun. Joyful twin stick shooter but my 43 yr old reflexes not always up to the job!

I have been playing Horizon Zero Dawn whenever I get time, since May. Along with the Frozen Wilds DLC, I have spent over 107 hours on it so far and I still have quite a bit still to do! Whoever said it was only 40 hours and 15 hours to complete must have been in one hell of a rush (or talking crap). I am very surprised by how much I continue to enjoy this game. It is defiantly one of my top 5 of all time. Simply brilliant*.

*if you don't like using bows and arrows in a game you might not like it.

You have just mentioned three of my favourite games there! You clearly have excellent taste. And a PS4.

I have just bought and downloaded Elite Dangerous finally. Looking good but having trouble with tutorial levels not loading bits I'm supposed to do. Will have another whirl later when I've put the little one to bed.

I've just recently got an xbox one with Fallout 4 and Alien : Isolation - but I've not really had time to invest into them - although that early Deathclaw in one of the early missions in Fallout 4 did catch me off-guard...

I have been playing the odd bit of Gen 1 & 2 Pokemon during my commute to & from work though.

That'll be Pokemon Go you'll be talking about then - I do a little bit of that on the side, but it's more like the Safari Zone minigame where you literally have to walk around in person instead of controlling an ingame character, lol.

I was actually talking about playing the original games - both on the Game Boy Pocket (Gen 1) and Virtual Console (Gen 2 as my save batties have long since died)

Ahh yes my apologies I've recently picked go back up and my mind made a poor assumption.

I've been playing Pokémon gold again as it was recently put up on the 3DS virtual console. What a great game it was.

Today I finished Sonic Forces off to 100% and opened up COD WW2 which I've been loaned. Enjoying the campaign so far and the instructional propaganda visa for the multiplayer classes are amusing as hell.

Mostly Xenoblade 2, I'm enjoying it but I'd be lying if I said I understood it all. Reminds me a bit of Skies Of Arcadia.

A Hat in Time on PS4. One of the best games I’ve played all year. I highly recommend it. It’s easily the PS4’s best platformer.

Got the Turbo Grafx set up. So when there is a bit of time, it's been Super Star Soldier :)

Remember Me on the 360.

Really liking this. It's kind of a cross between Mirror's Edge and Arkham Asylum set in a steampunk style future. From what I've read it looks like it flopped which is a shame.
