    I really enjoyed Warhead, it felt like a seamless and organic extension of the original game.

    My only complaint with the original (and Warhead by extension) was the washed-out colour palette. I could never work out why the lighting engine made for such drab, bland-looking colours; a tropical setting should (and I hate this phrase) 'pop'.

    Various mods tried to fix it with texture replacements and enhancements, but it's the lighting engine itself that's the problem; the textures and all are perfect. Somehow colours just don't look vivid at all, and after trying it on several different screens (and comparing to genuinely lush and colourful games like Far Cry 3 and Just Cause 2) I'm sure it wasn't my monitor.

    I got all the achievements on Fallout 3 on 360, and that was the sixth or seventh time I've completed it in terms of a story. That's the only one. My top ones in % completion are Fallout (NV and 3), Skyrim, and ME series.

    Last game I completed though was AC Black Flag on the Xbone. Fun game! Not sure if I'll replay it. Game before that was ME3 for a whole series paragon play-through.

    I did just reinstall RA2 on my desktop and get that back up and running. Between that and the Steam sale I've got a few games to do.

    EDIT:

    Finally Beat Pokemon Yellow in March. I hadn't touched my GB SP in over 5 years. Threw the cartridge in, and boom! battery still had charge, everything worked. Very impressed with the resiliency of that hardware.

    Risen 3 - Titan Lords. 40 hours of swashbuckling Arr!

    Game was fun, but rather easy. Some of the voice-over was a little ropey, not so much the actors themselves, but rather the direction by the sound person wasn't always great. Other than that though it was fun. It held my interest which is saying something.

    Just in time for Civ: Beyond Earth I won my first game of Civilization V on deity yesterday. Immensely satisfying. The game has really been improved since the old days when it first came out. Here's me hoping Beyond Earth will actually work on release this time around.

    Dead Island: Riptide. Apart from finding every collectable as that became chance as opposed to anything else. I have done every task and I must say even on a third or perhaps fourth playthough I still found it fun.

    Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty

    Enjoyable enough, considering I essentially got it for a fiver. Although I played the original years ago I was never really a fan and not that good at it. The sequel is definitely better and has some fun missions. However the lack of scale between units irritates me somewhat - why is a battlecruiser only slightly larger than a battle tank for example? And why is their firepower comparable?

    So, while it's a fun game (and I will be buying the next two episodes when they drop to a fiver) I still think Supreme Commander FA is the best ground based strategy game out there (Homeworld 2 being the all time champion).

    I enjoyed the campaign in StarCraft 2, but not a fan of the multiplayer. Enjoyed just sending silly amounts of Valkyries in by air and then changing to ground-mode and hosing things with all the bullets (overly fond of miniguns :thumb: ).

    On the note of SC:FA, have you had a look at Planetary Annihilation at all?

    I should have mentioned this was all I was interested in. I can't be arsed with the 200 actions a minute hyperactive Korean b*ll*cks that is multiplayer - I much rather prefer a drawn out 'actual' strategy game than some rock-paper-scissors malarkey (come at me SC2 fans :D ).
    I have but only briefly as it only works on my laptop at the moment (must be a 4K glitch). I was overjoyed at the inclusion of a single player campaign as I'm an antisocial type of chap, which I took for a spin. I've only played a couple of missions (so no challenging AI just yet) but it's quite good! The graphics are nice and functional and the interface is exceptionally easy to use - for example, it only took me a few seconds how to figure out how to travel to another planet even though I hadn't watched a tutorial.

    I aim to play it at Christmas when I spend a week or so at the folks.

    Dishonored.
    2nd run through.
    Didn't kill anyone or so much as raise a sword in anger.

    Way more rewarding and enjoyable than wasting everyone.

    Metro: Last light. Which I decided to replay as I got real bad lag issues with the DLC Spiders lair. Absolutely no problems with the main game though. So Will work my way through the DLC and see if I still have issues.

    Far Cry 3 (32 hours according to steam)

    Kind of lost interest after getting drawn into the hunting challenges and unlocking radio towers and bases, before focusing on completing the storyline. Story was pretty good and some of the set pieces were fantastic! I'd say better than FC1 and FC2 but probably not as consolidated as Blood Dragon which was a perfect size / length for me. It would be good if the radio towers, etc were less of a hindrance to people who just want mostly the main storyline and not all the side-questing.

    Metro 2033 Redux (in ranger mode) - Simply Amazing.

    Good tweaks and additions in the redux.
    Now knowing the alternative endings i can't believe it didnt click on my first play through, but oh well!

    Ranger mode is great and I was down to using my military grade rounds (in-game currency) in the final chapter as I was completely out of bullets!!!

    Also I think the reason I rate this game so highly is that it never outstays its welcome. The sections are reasonably short and varied and the characters and story are superb.

    Indeed. I would rather play quality over quantity!

    Metro Last Light Redux (in ranger mode) - As above, simply amazing. Every bit as good as I remembered! Gutted its over tbh :(

    Minor complaints against the redux is that there are still bugs and it did crash to desktop a few times!

    Otherwise a fantastic game.
    missed the alternative ending even though I went out of my way to make good moral choices! Checked online now and there is A LOT of stuff to do to unlock the different ending! maybe next time.....

    Finished Skyrim and the DLC. Lots of places not explored or discovered but after 150 hours I am now board. Would like to have found all the 24 stones but I as I have 14 with no idea where I got them from I cannot be bothered exploring all areas again. Hardly used magic and found the items menus a pain to navigate even with a mod, would like to have switch weapons easier. But overall a good value and quite fun game.
