I've completed the world tour of Sonic All-Stars Transformed on hard, but there's still two events locked behind a 200 star gate, which would mean completing all events on expert. I don't think I have the patience for that, the skill-based events are fine, but the races have even dirtier AI than MK8.

Started Silent Hill Downpour - the atmosphere is spot-on, but my god, the combat is dreadful. Sad, as I'm quite enjoying the game itself.
I played Silent Hill Downpour on the xbox 360 shortly after it was released and I absolutely loved it!! It's one of my favorite games and if you enjoyed the atmosphere and story so far then you're going to love the game. It's the best SH game since SH 3 and that's saying something and from a company Vatra Games that only released two games, they did a great job with the license imho and it's worth playing.

Seconded on Downpour, it deserves more praise than it got. The side content in the game was actually really well done for the most part, I loved some of the puzzles we got for side missions like the whole thing with the theatre, the missing girl etc.

Yeah, the theatre side mission in downpour was nothing short of great. A lot of creativity went into the game and its a shame its not more popular than it is. I'd like to see the series continue on rather than have the game rebooted. A lot of movies and games today are being rebooted and I'd like to see SH stay the way that it is just do a fresh new entry. :) Although I will say that Silent Hills looked great its too bad that it got cancelled. From the demo that we got it looked like it was going to be something great.

Played some Brian Lara Cricket 96 this weekend on the Sega Megadrive for my YouTube gaming channel. That was fun!

Fallout 4, fairly easy to immerse myself in it so makes things a bit more tolerable, currently exploring Nukaworld and I'm hoping Far Harbour will unglitch itself so I can continue my quests there.

Give me New Vegas or Fallout 3 over that any day of the week. It looks nice and all, but it is not an RPG at all compared to the previous games. Plus them removing the skill system, and the changes to the conversation system was just criminal.
