Terraria is great. It's like Minecraft with a point but there is a lot to it for sure. You can lose hours playing it very easily.

^ Nice!! I've not yet seen a Mercy POTG yet.

Had a great sesh on Overwatch last night, three friends and I absolutely hammered the opposing teams. Control point, Reinhardt shielding the front of the car, bastion in turret mode on the car, mercy healing, mercy buffing, mei interfering and genji protecting. It's a bit of an obvious combo but the poor random teams could do bugger all to stop it :lol:

Played some solo today and got 5 consecutive POTG's with Tracer. Need to use her more often!

If you can get a full group, I've found two teams of Rein, Bast and Mercy can shred unorganised opponents when playing defense. :D

I've had 2 POTG's with Mercy. It's really difficult to get it with her as the game appears to reward kill streaks more than anything else. Rezzed 4 peeps up a couple of days ago but no POTG, however, I then rezzed 2 of our tanks on the capture point and won the game then got POTG.

As a Mercy main, games vary between great to awful depending on my team mates. Many people also don't seem to play the objective, particularly in defend mode, leaving the point empty and fighting way up the map likes its COD. I had an enemy Roadhog just waddle into our last capture point the other day and just stayed there as I desperately tried to get him off it as Mercy. I just had to laugh really as the least stealthiest of the heroes took the game.

^ This is pretty much why I don't play support. Ever. I like playing as Mercy but literally no random match-ups know how to effectively use the support you provide. I tend to main Tracer and mess around at the opposing team's spawn point, love providing a distraction. I'm always amazed at just how many enemies wind up following me round in circles, ignoring the objective :lol:

Finally got not one, but two legendries from a loot box yesterday! The Road Hog Island skin (meh) and the TRACER MACH T SKIN. Hell yes :D

Played a bit more of N++. Working on the last sets of Expert legacy levels then I'll be done with the game. The levels remain fun and challenging, should hopefully have it finished in time for Mighty No 9 next week.

Other than that I've been playing South Park Stick of Truth on my PS4. I've already completed it before on release, but I'm really enjoying replaying the game again as its held up really well (I don't mind the combat, as simple as it is). Its the story and dialogue that get me, so many good lines (mostly from Cartman and Butters at the moment).

Spelunky, blood rayne betrayal, the longest journey, and gabrial knight sins of the fathers...

I have bought others, but these are what I'm playing... Splurged a bit in the GOG sale. :D

Popped in Divinity Original Sin for the PS4 as I picked it up a while ago and haven't tried it yet, only played 30mins but it seems bloody fantastic!
