Started playing Fall Guys, I love the It's a Knockout vibe.
My retro fix at the moment is split between Bladerunner on Gog and the original Settlers game on my trusty Amiga.

Little Wanino Played Skylanders Trap Team the other day and I had a go late at night of it as well.

Also I had a round of Gold with your Friends and got some GamerScore, mainly for taking 1000 Putts in total!

Ghost master, the concept is solid, but it seems done in a clunky way
MIB2 PS2, take a 3D run and gun, make it tedious with swarms of enemies that teleport in everywhere, also right behind, it likes to do that with tank like guys

Turned my PS3 on for the first time in ages and started playing Ultra Street Fighter IV again. Heaps better than V, and much more accessible (never understood why some people found the Focus mechanic difficult to grasp).

But it feels a lot more floaty and sloooow than I remembered (needs Turbo settings!)

And Seth is still an utter c*** (especially in the second round).

Still obsessed with Steambot Chronicles. Such a refreshing alternative to conventional RPGs. Spent ages just messing about with excavating fossils, and trading resources/materials between regions.

The stock market is also pretty fun to mess about with. Bought a load of cheap railway stocks, cleared the bandits that were blocking the line (and causing the stocks to drop in the first place), and the stock value doubled once the railroad was back up and running!

Circling back and trying to finish off Atelier Ryza before the sequel hits. For how many of those games Gust churns out, the quality always seems so good

Steins Gate continues to really be a fun read for me, I should have gone in blind and not watched the show beforehand but oh well
