Friend of mine took our Wii to softmod it. He returned it with a bunch of emulators and... F-Zero AX! Hammering it at the minute. Brutal, but oh so good. And aside from looking like ass on a HD TV, as does the Cube game, it runs beautifully. He also stuck Mario Kart GP on there, but after a few plays it seems more of a curio than anything. Certainly less fun that even the average home titles.

Yeah I'm really liking Overwatch too. The characters are definitely the stars of this game.

Working on the post game stuff on Yakuza Kiwami now. I've managed to finish the challenge mode off - which started off really hard but somehow got easier when it came to the boss rush modes (giving you a fully leveled up Dragon of Dojima style makes things so wonderfully easy!).

I've also managed to finish one of the hardest bits off in the Premium Adventure mode - Haruka's Trust challenges. Basically complete certain goals Haruka gives you as you walk around town with her. It starts out easy, but the last 8 or so challenges are a pain, as the difficulty ramps up, and they save Billiards until almost last. Clearing the count up style pool game against hard AI was challenging for me, but I managed to clear it with a bit of skill and a bit of luck! That was immensely satisfying though... The batting center was really easy to do though, which is funny as that is the only part of the original PS2 version of Haruka's challenge that I still can't finish to this day! Now all I've got left to do is one hostess, Koi Koi, a couple of random completion list tasks and finally the secret boss fight against Amon. Fun times :mrgreen:

Batman Arkham Asylum- Did not think I'd get to this point but after 7 years I'm just 1 Achievement shy of 100%ing this game by going through the Story on Hard.

Indeed mate. A bit skylanders but the mechanics are good!

I've stopped the SWTOR obsession and god to FF14 currently.

Though I am thinking I should also do FF11 while it's still around.

Back on Uncharted 2 on my new PS3 Super Slim (hopefully the last PS3 I need to buy).

This is starting to feel a bit Last of Us now. It has pulled the same ambush mechanic I hated in Last of Us a couple of times. At least you don't have to deal with one hit kill clickers. I love that melee combat is an option. Maybe I'm still in Doom mode, but I find myself running up to people and punching them in the face a lot. And it actually works more often than you'd think :D

The story and dialogue really is very good though. As is the acting. And the music.

Dangerous Golf on Xbox One.
Remember the excellent Crash mode in the Burnout games? This is by the same team. Basically, you hit a golf ball into a room full of smashable objects and go for big score with a minimum score being required to unlock the next holes. It's a simple goal that becomes increasingly tricky to achieve as new game elements are introduced. I like this sort of game. Simple gameplay, satisfying destruction, straightforward progression but with plenty of depth and replayability if you want the top scores and medals. I'm dipping in and out of it as a welcome antidote to the poisonous grind of Just Cause 3.

F-Zero AX is hidden in the Cube game F-Zero GX, unlockable via an Action Replay code. I'd guess someone has dumped a version of the GC game ready hacked to launch AX.

Think, GX loader lets you select it

Its hard enoutgh to get people to play F-Zero at my games nights so AX would be a bit more of a bugger

Valkyria Chronicles HD what a brilliant game but difficult I'm stuck on Chapter 7 fight The trick is actually getting the Eidelweiss past the blue walls so the batomys keeps moving and shooting at the blue walls instead of stopping to shoot at your tank. I found this works until Selvaria turns up with her Legendary lance and shield... censored is an absolute tank she 1 shot kills all my characters and can not be damaged even with the Edelweiss as well as sniper + range.. I can't damage Maximillions tank or expose the third radiator

Overwatch. I was expecting a revelation and found a fairly average multiplayer shooter. The characters are really brimming with personality and the maps are well designed but the actual gameplay is kind of average.

Maybe it'll click with more dedicated play, as it is I'm kind of lukewarm on it.
