ICO - For the PS2 and it looks a bit blurry on the 50 inch plasma, (hoping to order the PS2 a composite cable) I have to say, Can't complain everything I play on this TV (thanks to my Dad for upgrading his) plays pretty nice, the 360 and when the PS3 worked. Tried Ico on a little LCD 15 inch TV by Bush and it's alright, so an alternative to move the PS2 Upstairs at some point. Mario and Yoshi on the original Gameboy Color, just a random cartridge I picked up at Play Expo, last year, surprisingly a quite decent game once you get the right light. Can see me emulating this if I go on holiday.

Project Diva X - Finally filled all the spheres with voltage, now working on clearing all of the requests (Cool, Quirky and Elegant left to do). After that it's a case of unlocking all of the costumes, which will take approximately 100 years :(

Hearthstone - Playing on a daily basis, can't quite sum up the enthusiasm to climb the ranked ladder. Was on a mean losing streak until I switched to Hunter (trash tier class) and somehow stumbled on to a 12 game win streak.

^ The more I think about the costume unlock system in PDX, the more it leaves a bad taste in my mouth, especially with the DLC to unlock stuff. :?

Thought I'd try out Let it Die, love Grasshopper but not really sure if the free to play model will be intrusive or not. Definitely looks good fun though.

Struggling to finish Uncharted4', just finding it a chore..boring levels where i think the novelty has worn off...i just walked around a massive house looking for a diary yet it all felt like a massive walk and talk cutscene followed by the obligatory chase. There was a clumsy drive up a river in a jeep level where the route is so linear yet unclear its tedious play. Probably my gaming dissapointment yet, which is why im not looking forward to The last of us2, itll be more of the same.

I actually love the unlocking system, it feels like opening a pack of trading cards in the middle of every song! The only down-side to that is, from a competitionist point of view, having to RNG your way to the top. I'm finding the friendship grinding far more frustrating. 5 levels have been doubled up to 10, the face touching has been removed and gifts will give minuscule boosts.

So does that game come with a two player game? Is it pick up and play?
Looking for more Japanese style games for that yearly Japanese fest that you dont see around a lot


Playing Moonbase inc on my phone
A simcity-a-like without the usual mobile BS, even if it does have things you can buy that just makes you win the game in one building

Still playing Yakuza 6. Managed to finish the story side of things off in 44 or so hours, but in doing so I missed quite a lot of the side stuff. From hostess side missions, Mah Jong, more Virtua Fighter 5 FS, Gang Creator & Baseball modes etc. there is still tons of stuff to sink my teeth into.

Vita wise I've been working through the DLC on Wipeout 2048, finished off the Directors Cut missions on Escape Plan and played a couple of missions on Joe Danger here and there (which is actually kinda fun).

Fire Pro Wrestling Returns (PS3)

As much as I can see its a bigger more ambitious game than previous versions, and the dit packs you can download are incredible, there's just something "off" about the grapple timing.

If they just made it the same control timing as Fire Pro D on dream cast it would pretty much be the greatest game ever

Does it play well on the PS4? On my shopping list but waiting for a price drop.

I think it plays brilliantly on the PS4. I'm around 8 or 9 hours in now, I also bought all the DLC (which is discounted to £7.99 for the lot at the moment on PSN) and it integrates perfectly into the storyline. I didn't even realise which bits were DLC until I read some reviews afterwards.

I am a long-time fan of the XCOM games, and this really is the pinnacle.

Strange, it feels perfect on PS2

You mean the Diva games? If so, they're extremely easy to pick up and play (being rhythm games). No two player options though.
