Mostly Golf Story on the Switch, very relaxing to play and easy to chip away at, pun intended. :)

Ploughing through Shenmue at the moment. Been really impressed with the port and how it controls. I have had my save corrupt twice though which apparently has a fix in the next patch. Thankfully psplus cloud save did its job. Also on with the telltale batman game. Same old telltale which is no bad thing.

Lego Marvel Superheroes.

Really enjoying this. Finding it quite relaxing going round the city finding character tokens, completing side missions and just generally flying around as Iron Man.

Just cracked open my 8 year old copy of Resonance of Fate for the first time, after having heard of the HD Remaster that's on it's way.

Wait, is it HD Remaster? HHD ? HD*2?

Been playing Urban Reign on PS2. Surprisingly challenging and doesn't follow a typical beat 'em up structure as I expected.

Also it takes 30 missions before any sort of story cutscene and before you get to use two characters for team-up special moves. Multiplayer for the story mode is also off-limits until then. I can't believe it takes so long to get going. It's not like these first 30 missions are tutorial walkovers either because many of them are absolutely b*****d hard and completely unforgiving unless you've somewhat mastered the evasion/counter system (there is no block/guard feature). Easy to see how people could have binned the game off, assuming that it wasn't going to get any better.

Looking forward to unlocking Paul Phoenix from Tekken :)

Yeah. I love the game, but its definitely tough until the counter system clicks. Once it does it feels so darn good. And yeah, Law and Paul are fantastic to use.

I've mainly been finishing games lately. 90 hours later and I finished Yakuza 3 on the PS4, managing to get the mini game master trophy :mrgreen:
Got the plat trophy on Spidey on the PS4. Again, absolutely loved this one and I was super happy that this new Spidey game was all I wanted it to be.
Lastly, been playing loads of Hollow Knight. Really enjoying this one recently. Still have a few % to get for complete completion on the game.

I'm not doing too bad, but my high score is only 77161, miles of the high-score table!

Need for Speed Underground 2 (PS2) - I passed over this when it was current because of all the chav and EA shovelware connotations but that was a serious mistake! Aside from some dodgy music (there ARE a few good tracks...), the game is really enjoyable with great, varied racing, a nice free-roam aspect and really accurately-modelled cars (probably some of the best I have seen on the PS2). Visually the game still looks damn good even all these years later with very little in the way of 'jaggies' or nasty textures. I've really gotten back into my cars over the last few years so I appreciate a good racer that taps into 'the scene' like NFSU2.

I intend to hunt out the original Most Wanted and Carbon next since those are also looked upon favourably. The games that came after seem to have had a pretty mixed reception, especially the newer NFS games on modern systems.

NFSU2 is an excellent game.
This and the 2012 Hot Pursuit are my favourites.

Ridge Racer 3D (3DS)

I love Ridge Racer. It doesn't matter how many times they rehash it, I'm all over it every time.

I hope the rumour of RR8 for the Switch is true!!

Sin and Punishment on the Wii. Good fun so far, I'm only playing on easy though.
