I've popped off the shrinkwrap on Borderlands: The Handsome Collection and just set up a new character on The Pre-sequel. Looks gorgeous and plays so crisply. Wasn't too sure how much of a step up it would be from the PS3 version, but it just is. I'll be wasting a lot of time on this and Borderlands 2 over the next few months.......

Just started playing Dishonored on the 360. Done the first main mission and must say I'm quite enjoying it. Especially as the stealth play is not forced on you.

Super Mario Advance 4 via emulation. I've been using a save that lets me play all the exclusive E Reader levels that were not even available in Europe... I still think locking content behind E Reader cards is moronic, what happened to actually unlocking stuff in games using skill?

Anyway, the levels themselves so far have been excellent. They are a mix of Mario 3 (mainly), Mario World and a couple of levels that borrow heavily from Mario 2 USA (vegetables and ladybird enemies from the game).

The levels also seem to have an elevated difficulty level compared to Mario games (well, at least compared to newer Mario games) and this is really pleasant to me. They are fun, challenging and you never know what the next level will hold. I'd jump at either being able to get a complete copy of the game with all the E Reader levels on the cart, or a complete set of E Reader cards but I can't find either unfortunately. Nintendo should totally re-release the game with all the content unlocked, I'd pay for it...

Bought and completed The Order 1886 over the weekend. Although it's short and has little replay value, I thought it was a great game.

I was playing Trojan Warrior on the C64, then I played Mickie. I am now playing Delta also on my C64.

Master of Magic;
Ghosts and Goblins;
Chuckie Egg.

All C64 - my 10 year old son says they're rubbish but I found out that he's been playing them after school before I get home - instead of his Xbox One.

Fire pro wrestling returns

The free XBone game Pool Nation, the shooting mechanics are not bad and the online play works well, worth downloading if you have Gold.

The snooker mode on this game is excellent. Play your mates online for bragging rights. :D
