Speaking of Atic Atac, I just watched a speedrun of it in 4:40.

Under ten minutes is pretty good going though. The random elements don't always line up to let you have a fast run.
4:40 is probably a bit beyond my capabilities I'm afraid, but I shall take a look at the vid... :wink:

Started a new Season Career on FIFA 14 XBOX One.
Played one friendly against Liverpool, Lost 0-3 but then I couldn't save the game as I had changed controllers at the start of the game!
:cry: I always uncheck the add signature button, looks like this time I have forgotten!!! :D

Working through Deadly Premonition on the Switch. Aside from the couple of crashes and way some of the side stories trigger, I'm loving replaying it. Its an odd, janky game with a great cast of characters. Looking forward to the sequel this week.

More Wii "Goodness"
Sonic and the black knight, urgh,
Deadly creatures, till I got fed up with dying because of jank
Men In Black, a cover based light gun shooter, its a keeper
Sengoku Basara, like the Warriors style games, this one seems "ok" but it does seem to struggle to have loads of characters on screen

I've played about 6 or 7 games now, not doing that great...
I just edited through 3 hours of gameplay footage and kept just the goals mainly and have got that down to 20 minutes.
I might have one or two more games tonight then film an intro and outro video tomorrow morning 8)

Animal Crossing New Horizons on Switch with my stepdaughter, we're having great fun with her moving the character and me pressing the action buttons.

Nearing the end of my Death by Degrees replay. Although there are several major annoyances, I've really been enjoying this all over again. It's never going to be a classic (based on the problems), but it's nowhere near as bad as the reviews made out back in the day.

I've been playing the game on a New Game+ though, and it puts weapons with infinite durability/bullets into the game. Bosses are an absolute breeze, especially Anna, who I trapped in a corner by simply standing still and shooting continuously. The big machine bosses near the end also die in no more than a minute with the dual infinite sub-machineguns, and more like 30 seconds or less with the infinite Railgun.

I've been replaying Beetle Adventure Racing on the N64 since I got my Tribute 63 pad in - it's taking some getting used to...

Valkyria Revolution (PS4) - what a load of horrible poo! Dull, cliched ARPG that dumps everything that was great about the original trilogy. Could only stomach a few chapters before I'd had enough - was yawning and falling asleep! Thankfully, there is a proper VC4 so I'll have to pick that up next, but until then...

...decided to raid my PS2 backlog and start Steambot Chronicles. Wow, what a game. Quirky, charming and really fun to play.
