King's Quest 2015 remake. I must say I'm pleasantly surprised, it's a very good adventure game and I can only recommend it to adventure fans. It's not a traditional point-and-clicker as it's designed around gamepad control, but it works quite well with a keyboard too. There's some QTEs here and there but it didn't bother me at all and progression is elegant, unlike some classics of the genre that rely on "pixel hunt" and illogical puzzles or even impossible progression if you missed some item or event. Those are trully archaic approaches and for a modern adventure game, this is as good as it gets.

Donkey Kong Land on the original Game Boy, although I have a GBA SP (actually own two; relatives gave me their spare GBs and we have a bunch of old GBs in the loft). Brilliant game to take around and play, and even at home. :)

Thinking of buying DKL2 also, not too much money for it on eBay (for the cartridge only).

Mainly focusing on Mega Man 7 at the moment. Cleared all the normal stages and got all the (secret) items so its off to the fortress levels where I'm sure to start swearing profusely at the final boss (probably the hardest boss in the entire series!). Enjoying replaying this more than expected, it'll never be my favourite game in the series but I can really appreciate the decent level design and excellent boss fights (bar maybe one or two).
Also been playing the challenge mode attached to Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 - its a missed opportunity - in that its too easy and doesn't have enough level based challenges, instead doing lots of boss time attack fights which is still really fun, I was just hoping for something more akin to the challenge mode in the original Legacy Collection.

Witcher 3 on PS4 Pro.... what an incredible game. I'm level 15, hours and hours poured into it already and it never fails to blow me away.

It'd be awesome if mouse/keyboard was supported on consoles, would make playing FPS games awesome :D

Still on Majora's Mask 3D. I'm enjoying it but I'll probably just do the bare minimum to finish it and come back to the rest of it later, I need to move on to other games.

More Mega Man 7, thanks to a challenge I've now managed to beat the final boss on MM7 without needing any healing items. Which is quite an achievement for me as I always considered that bastard the hardest boss in the entire series.

That's what PC's are for! :D

Not saying console controllers are bad but it'd be nice to have more freedom of choice in terms of controlling on consoles, this is one of the reason people prefer PC and I think it could really benefit a console if they supported extra controller types :)

Checking out No Man's Sky after latest update, besides the direct theft from Elite (Galactic map filterable, stations offering missions), the upgrade to procgen seems really damn impressive. Already found a scenic ice planet with deep canyons I want to set base at. The textures seem reworked too.

Playing Resident Evil 3 (completed thrice since starting), resident evil director's cut (completed for the first time, did it as Jill) good game, I've only ever completed the REmake.

Just started Resident Code Veronica and today I can finally start Sonic Mania.

I was also halfway through Phantasy Star 3.

Got to love moving house and having no internet!

Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 on the 360.

Absolutely love MVC2 (one of my all-time favourite games) but for some reason I just really cannot get in to this one. No idea why as it has interesting characters, graphics are decent enough but it just seems to be lacking something.

Also doesn't help that Galactus is a massive tool.
