Exile's End on PS4, which was a nice throwback to the '80s action adventure platformers

though it has a very strange and possibly utterly frustrating 'autosave'
Is that where it saves after every screen? So you could lose almost all your health and have the game screw you over by checkpointing you when you can only take a hit or two? As I had that issue early on in that game, it gets way easier when you get a gun, but up to that point it can be a bit frustrating, especially with the rather harsh fall damage.

Great game though once you start getting upgrades, you just have to persevere to that point!

Professor Layton and Pandora's Box. Not thrilled about the story's ending but I liked the setting more than Curious Village, and the puzzles were good.

Mario Odyssey, Yakuza Kiwami, Hellblade, TxK and as of today: Metroid Samus Returns. Really had a good run this last week or so :lol: Still have tons of post game stuff to do on Mario though, so can see me playing that for at least another month. Loved all the above games, a really nice mix of action, platforming and story lead games :mrgreen:

I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream -- a game made in 1996 based on the short story by Harlan Ellison. Certainly worth checking out.

I finished Big Nose the Caveman on the Nes. Big nose has black hair (on the cover at least) like most people do and remember Jews are mostly blacked haired and I am pleased by this. But his nose lacks the beaky/hooked look of a jew like my fine hooky beak like snout, so maybe Big Nose is not of Jewish origin.

I'm also playing Marvel vs Capcom PS4 learning Miss Marvel.. I also played a online match against my hero Justin Wong and I told him he was so pringles and I asked him where his curly mustache was at? He invited me to Evo to watch him play and he showed me all the wrist action involved using mango sentinel.

Finally finished The Darkness.

Don't know whether only playing it when I could didn't help but I really found it to be dull and pants.

Remember Me on the 360.

Really enjoyed this. It had one really annoying moment and a couple of annoying QTE's but overall I'm really glad that I played it.

I finished off the free dlc Ressurection for star wars battlefront 2, short and sweet but it was average I suppose.

Hellblade what a brilliant game very unique more puzzle solving survival horror game rather then combat. The gameplay changes from puzzle solving to time based dashes through a burning town, then survival horror as you enter hell and she has to creep through pitch blackness with all severed hands hanging from the wall as your chased by a unkillable Monster. Then a Ninja Gaiden fight scene against a army in a lake of blood followed by a boss fight against the previously unkillable monster

The Darkness II.

On reflection I couldn't stand the first one but actually really enjoyed this one. Massive improvement on the first one. More linear and enjoyable.

Injustice: Gods Among Us on Wii U.

Still have a lot of content to get through but I finished the story mode. The plot is a bit confusing but I still really enjoyed it. Love the game overall, so much so I bought a couple more DLC characters.

The new Wolfenstein. It’s probably my favourite game of last year. Brilliant fun and a great story too. The perfect balance of serious and absolutely crazy.

Sonic Adventure DX- The last achievement is glitched (Get 130 emblems by playing the DX version) but screw it, I got all 130 emblems and 60 missions done, 15 years after I thought it would be impossible on Gamecube.

Had heard if you get 130 on a 2nd save file, that achievement will unlock....guess I'll make a slow stroll...... :lol:
